Extra's: The best extra by far was the inclusion of a 42 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showcased the cast before, during, and after the action. It was fun seeing some of them looking like deer in some headlights when given instructions about what to do and say but fans of the cast will forgive the minor annoyances. There was also a set of trailers, a photogallery, and a cum shot compilation of the scenes.
Audio/Video Quality: 2 + Me = 3 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by director Jordan Septo. The colors looked accurate, the fleshtones solid, and the grain minimal with no compression artifacts or video noise to speak of. There were a few moments at times where the lighting wasn't optimal, allowing some shadows to creep in, but I think this one was a slight step forward for Jordan as his compositional skills improved from the last movie of his I watched. The stereo English audio track was nothing special and in some of the interviews, I couldn't really hear the cast all that well (even turning up the volume) so I can't really say I enjoyed that aspect of the DVD but that's something he can work on in future releases.

Body of Review: One of the perks of reviewing lots of porn is getting to see new directors grow in terms of their skills on someone else's dime. Let's face it; it would be a lot safer sticking with the tried and true directors we've learned to like over the years but porn shouldn't always be about taking the safe route either. One of the more recent directors I've watched has been Jordan Septo. While he's not the best director in porn, he is showing the ability to grow in his talent and having a willing eye to what works, rather than sticking with the same old formula as so many others do. That said, the latest release I've watched of his was 2 + Me = 3, a collection of 5 ménage a trois scenes that mixed up the formula a bit so that it didn't get old. For the most part, the scenes were very well done and I liked the entire female cast with some that were simply excellent. Here's a quick look at the scenes from the DVD, each of which had some energy and/or chemistry, to give you an idea of the quality Jordan seemed to coax out of most of them:
Scene One: Sandra Romain and Jayna Oso, both lean brunettes (with Jayna on the front DVD cover) with a decent following for their energetic performances and attractive looks, were up first as they made out on a couch before being joined by studly Cheyne Collins. The lesbian aspects of the show included licking, muff diving and rimming, with some toy play tossed in for good measure. Once he joined them though, the scene became even hotter with them riding his face and cock like it was something they'd do for free. The emphasis was on vaginal play although each gal gave up her ass nicely too. In all, it was a great way to start a movie with plenty of chemistry to go with the energy.
Scene Two: Katja Kassin, the international anal queen with few peers to speak of considering her excellent sex skills, took on both Tyce and Cheyne after telling the camera who she is. Her oral was as solid as ever and her ability to handle both men in each hole (culminating in a powerful DP) was hot too. There was spanking and some slapping (I liked her slapping the shit out of Tyce) but the lengthy footage of DP action was the focal point here. Like the first scene, there was a lot of taste testing going on but in overall terms, it was a better scene in some ways, even ending in some swallowing of their ejaculate.
Scene Three: Barbara Summers, a cute blonde from the Czech Republic, started her scene with a short interview on a couch while wearing a silvery bikini that looked great on her. She claimed to want two men's dicks and have them put in each hole. She got one and a half men (Tyce being the odd man out) but Talon was looking buff enough for her to look at while the action took place. She blew them both and Talon was good enough to wet her up with his tongue before the screwing started. She took the anal very well and even in the DP footage, she managed to act as though it was fun to do more than something she was being paid for. She jerked them off, did the usual taste testing, and swallowed their loads pretty well. While not the best scene of the movie, it was still a very solid scene worth checking out.
Scene Four: Kyla King, an attractive gal with light hair from the Nederland's, showed off her all natural body while Brett and Talon admired her from the nearby couch. While I wouldn't call her skinny (as Jordan did), she was very lean so fans of fat gals will want to look elsewhere. They soon started working her over after the short interview, paying lots of attention to her crotch and ass (like most of us would) before she began alternating giving them head. They then took turns getting blowjobs and screwing her moderately tight pussy but the ass was left untouched by anything other than their tongues. She claimed to be doing it for the money but I did think she lost herself in the action from time to time so while this was the weakest scene of the bunch; it wasn't bad to check out.
Scene Five: Poppy Morgan, a British gal with light brown hair, was up last, exclaiming during her interview that she wanted it all. She did okay by getting Anthony and to round out the advertised trio she also had to put up with Tyce. I liked her lingerie and willingness to aggressively express her sexuality, even if she wasn't the best performer of the crew this time. Most of the scene was either oral or DP with little middle ground to truly show off her talents. She proved she liked the taste of her own juices off their cocks and the scene ended much like the others except that she didn't swallow a drop.
Summary: I think Jordan hit another winner with this one and while a few limitations keep me from awarding it too high a rating, it certainly earned a high Recommended from this jaded old reviewer. Katja, Sandra, Jayna, and Barbara all turned in very well done scenes and the others were terrible either. In terms of fuck for the buck, the BTS feature added some serious value along with the movie itself so I think fans of the cast would do well to check this one out and fans of threesomes will want to do the same. It wasn't the most extreme display of circus act sex but it was well worth your time and money if you like quality porn. I wonder if Jordan's earlier efforts were as good as this and what he'll do in the future to please his growing legion of fans.
