Shane's World/New Sensations
Director: Nacho Vidal
Cast: Jesse, Nacho Vidal, Sheila Rossi, TT Boy, April Flowers, Caroline Cage, Tony Ribas, Sophie Evans, Monika
Length: 96.5 minutes
Date of Production: 2/2000
Extra's: The only extras included on the DVD were a weak set of cast biographies for the women and a moderate length photogallery that looked to be a series a screenshots (blurry ones at that).
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as originally shot. Keeping in mind that this was made nearly five years ago on a shoestring budget by a first time director (Shane had bailed on the series by this point), it only looked slightly bad but by contemporary standards, it looked practically terrible with washed out colors, poor lighting, tons of grain and various other issues like lame camera angles and movement. Needless to say, I could further dissect the visual flaws but by now you should be getting the drift. The audio appeared on my receiver as stereo but I didn't hear any separation between the channels even using headphones so your mileage may vary. The dynamic range was also limited and the entire show looked and sounded to be made on a low end home video camera.
Body of Review: Shane was one of the original Tushy gals that Seymore Butts introduced to the world in his twisted brand of gonzo porn. Her playful nature and willingness to do anything with nearly anybody made her somewhat of a porn legend before she retired years ago. After leaving Seymore, she started up the Shane's World series and before she left it, there were a number of spin off series that I found very enjoyable, one of them being the subject of this review, Pornological 5. This was actually the first volume that Shane did not direct, leaving the business for other things, and it became the directorial debut of the infamous Nacho Vidal, international porn stud. The series was designed to take the general concept of the Shane's World series of playful sex in minimal settings and make a more industry standard movie with new gals. While it wasn't the best material coming out of the industry at the time, it rarely sunk to the level that so many other series were at, giving it a fresher edge in many cases. If this sounds interesting to you, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: Jesse, a brown-haired all natural gal that looked fairly average in most ways, was first up in the movie. She could be seen on the lower right hand side of the front DVD cover for those who care. She seemed playful in her scene with Nacho on a motel room bed, doing oral and straight sex with a small amount of energy. I think she liked him though and even with a lack of skill, the scene wasn't bad to watch.
Scene Two: Sheila, a tall lean gal with raven hair and a sweet ass, was up next in a scene with the infamous TT. She was the gal featured on the center of the front DVD cover and it's easy to see why; she's a hotty! The two made out on an outdoor deck with her showing a lot of energy and chemistry, making it a great scene. Had all the scenes been this good, I'd have been pushing this DVD like I owned stock in the company. Her oral was really solid and the screwing action even better as she aggressively pumped back to meet his thrusts, making me really happy with what took place.
Scene Three: April, the lean blonde located second from the bottom on the right hand side of the front DVD cover, is still in porn these days, having made it as a popular performer. Her scene with Nacho was pretty good although her inexperience showed here, making it a good scene for fans and an okay scene for the rest of you. Her talents have gotten much more refined over the years but it's still interesting to see a star when they were getting their feet wet. I thought the fireplace setting was romantic but don't be fooled since she was asexual predator even back then (remembering that this was shot nearly five years ago). I liked how she rotated her hips and tried to get him off but the scene was too short for me, even though it was pretty good.
Scene Four: Caroline, the blonde located on the front DVD cover at the second from the top on the right hand side, was a cutie too. Her scene was with Tony and included some energetic anal after a good blow job. I don't think she was really into the sex since the action was more mechanical than the other scenes but a lot of fans don't really mind that much from my experience. I've seen her more into the sex elsewhere but it's been a long time and her peak days in porn were long ago.
Scene Five: Sophie, the hotty in the upper right hand corner of the front DVD cover, was up next in a motel room scene. Fans will know that she, along with April, were the only two here to really make it to the big leagues of porn as far as the female cast and there's a reason why. Her scene with Tony showed that even this long ago, she had the right stuff to milk a guy's nuts and completely finish him off in no time at all. I particularly enjoyed the tease footage of her warming up by herself but she has long since proven to have more sexual talent than almost anyone in the jizz bizz and this scene was no different.
Scene Six: Monika, a lean little brunette found on the middle of the lower front DVD cover, was last up in this parade of pussy. Her scene with Nacho was a weak way to end the action here although she mechanically handled all he had to offer. This is one of the biggest problems with foreign performers, even to this day; they will do almost anything but not appear into the action or be willing to fake it in any significant way. I didn't mind watching her go through the motions but that's all she did, making it a filler scene.
Summary: The mixture of attractive gals new to porn in a variety of settings was enough to make me lean a bit on the generous side to give this one a rating of Recommended but it was very limited in many ways. There were no significant extras and hardly enough material in the movie to cover the amount of fuck for the buck I tend to need to give this kind of rating but I can't deny that the cast had a pleasant approach to the action on average and that it translated well even after all these years. If you're looking for a time capsule of decent sex, this may well fit the bill for you but don't expect it to blow your socks off (no matter what the shills tell you).
