Length: 144 minutes
Date of Production: 9/3/2005 (box); 7/22/2005, 7/29/2005, 8/5/2005, 8/22/2005, 9/3/2005 (credits)
Extras: The best extras for most people will be the 8 minute Bonus blowjob scene between Michael and a gal with "sweaty tits" and a second Bonus blowjob scene between Mysti May and Juan Cuba that lasted almost 11 minutes. Mysti was the better of the two and seemed more enthusiastic at her chosen career but each added value to the DVD. There was also a very interesting 22.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Juan Cuba & Michael Stefano that spotlighted the female performers, giving them lots of room to tell something about themselves and their scenes. There were some funny moments too (like where John got his cock stuck in his zipper) but if you watch it, you'll find some stroke material there too. I also liked the 9.5 minute long set of photoshoots where each gal was made to look their very best for the camera. There was also a photogallery, a director's biography, and a double sided DVD cover (though it was advertising for other shows on the second side).

Audio/Video Quality: Tease Me Then Please Me #3 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot for DVD by director Manuel Ferrara for Red Light District. The colors were solid, the flesh tones accurate, and the lighting almost always pretty good; making the picture look decent. The amount of grain and video noise were fairly light as a result so while it wasn't the best I've seen from Michael, it was better than most gonzo productions. There was no watermark on the lower right hand corner as with other directors at the company and while the colors were slightly richer than normal, there were no compression artifacts or video noise noticed during the scenes. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English with minimal separation between the channels and a standard dynamic range, making it nothing special in this sense but not bad either.
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is one of the remaining directors at Red Light District that has been with them for a long time, ending up in the established professional spot that several of the others used to occupy. He provides a decent level of quality in front and behind the camera so I was lucky when I snagged his latest release, Tease Me Then Please Me #3, for review. The scenes this time were graced with some solid teasing before the sex acts, rather then go right to screwing as so many gonzo movies provide these days. As a fan of tease, I'll be the first to admit that I enjoy the tease as much as the actual sex if handled properly. Thankfully, the tease was one of the best parts of the movie in all of the scenes here; making it a winner in my book. Here's a quick breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Tiffany Rayne, a hotty that looks a lot like the gal on the front cover, was a wise choice for the opening scene given her great body and willingness to engage in all forms of sex with few limits. Dressed in a neon pink fishnet top and a tiny striped thong to match, she provided a decent tease sequence that used equal amounts seductive moves and dirty talk to heat up the small screen before practicing with a large black dildo. Her partners this time were the tag team duo of Michael Stefano and John Strong; with the scene being especially notable for having her first DP (double penetration). The thing that weakened the scene for me was that two dicks at once meant she'd be less able to work them actively, a fact that proved true for most of the scene. She was loud and proud about her ability to enjoy what was happening though so it still had some solid stroke value, ending when they unleashed their seed all over her lovely face and mouth for swallowing.
Scene Two: Cassie Courtland, the bleached blonde on the front DVD cover, was up next as she teased Manuel Ferrara on the floor of the large room. This was in contrast to the last scene since the tease was more directed at him then the camera, making a nice change of pace for me to enjoy. I liked her virtual lap dance and the way she could wield her lean body was impressive on a couple of levels though he participated in teasing her as well. She wasn't given much chance to blow him before he went down on her; both bumping uglies soon after that took place. She was an active rider and the two hammering away almost came across as a contest of wills in who could do the most to the other but it was clear that he was larger than she was used to having in her scenes. The two screwed in several positions with some PTM (pussy to mouth) but the chemistry they shared was exceptional (they kissed, stroked, and otherwise touched one another as though turned on) and it ended with a huge load to her face as she kept eye contact with him like they were going to leave the house together and ride off into the sunset.
Scene Three: Sierra Sinn, a skinny gal with reddish hair and a blue outfit on, masturbated to a large screen television while located on the floor before she was joined by John Strong and Michael Stefano. She has never been one to trip my trigger although I'm told she has developed quite a following so I'll try to stick to her actions rather than describe what amounts of more subjective qualities she had going for her. She used the large black dildo inside her pussy before swapping out for Michael's dick in a POV sequence. He fingered her ass and fed it to her with the couple vaginally boning after that. They did a lot of anal with ATM in several positions before John came in to complete the trio for some DP work. She yelled and screamed as they tapped her holes, choking her after she requested them to do so. She did more taste testing and they came in her mouth to swallow.
Scene Four: Brianna Love, the extremely cute contract performer for the company, was up next as she took a bubble bath in a large claw tub with Michael Stefano watching her. I loved her ability to tease with that sweet ass of hers and it's always good to see a gal stay all natural (instead of getting implants like far too many others do). She kept up the tease as she stroked his cock on the edge of the tub, providing the kind of oral excellence that most of the others were missing this time. In that sense, there could be no one better than her although she wasn't bad when they started screwing either. He did most of the work when they screwed vaginally but she has been getting better all the time and this was another such occasion. The way her wet ass looked as he engaged her standing up also added some fun factor to the scene with her swallowing to close it out. There was, therefore, some good replay value to the scene.
Scene Five: Marie Luv, the leggy black gal with the attractive face, was up last as she wiggled about on the white rug on the floor; shaking her booty like she was ready to get it worked over by scene partners Michael Stefano and John Strong. Her black mesh top didn't contrast enough with her skin tone and her skimpy red panties just got in the way but her masturbation portion of the scene was tough to beat. She gave sloppy oral and did a lot of taste testing between positions once they screwed. They did a fair amount of DP work here with her dirty talk trying to elevate the action. She wasn't the most sexually aggressive gal of the bunch but she gave a decent performance before swallowing down the large massed load in her mouth with a smile to boot.
Summary: Tease Me Then Please Me #3 was worth a rating of Recommended to me for the amount of fuck for the buck, the quality of the tease footage, and the majority of the cast in terms of quality performances. This wasn't Michael's best movie to date but it was a great date flick if you catch my drift (even a date with your hand) with some solid replay value and good, though not great, technical values. Tiffany was the one I was most interested in seeing and while she was as lovely as ever, her performance was eclipsed by a few of the others by a wide margin. If you like tease footage leading your scenes in a gonzo flick, check this one out as being worthy of your time, money, and semen.
