Cast: Courtney Cummz, Jerry, Roxy Jezel, Jack Venice, Leah Luv, Kurt Lockwood, Penny Flame, Kinzie Kenner, James Deen, Courtney Cummz, Kinzie Kenner, redhead coed, Mr. Pete, fat dude, Red Heaven, Jamie Brooks; Lacie Hart, Kyle, Roxanne Hall, Kris (last four in the bonus scenes only)
Length: 128.5 minutes
Date of Production: 11/3/2005 (box); 11/4/2005 (credits)
Extras: The best extra for most people will be the bonus scene not cultivated from a previous release but made strictly for this show of Lacie Heart and Kyle at it in a relatively barren living room. This was credited as Lacie's second sex scene on camera and while I still have my doubts, she was certainly no stranger to having a guy's dick in her mouth and pussy. It only lasted about 18.5 minutes but seemed kind of fun if not the best they could have offered. There was also a second bonus scene lasting 22.5 minutes with Roxanne Hall starring as a soccer mom in need of a lay, with Kris giving it to her in the bedroom. She was on fire as she sucked and fucked his rod, proving older isn't always worse in the field of porn. A third bonus scene was a virtual blowjob by Roxy Jezel, showcasing the lady at her best with a dick in her mouth that lasted 18 minutes, a photogallery, and trailers to shows like Girls Night Out 1, Girls Night Out 2, Shane's World 37, Shane's World 36, Guide to Anal Sex, Shane's World, and Shane's World: Nerdz.

Audio/Video Quality: Shane's World 38 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by the nameless cameramen of the series (who don't get credit like Penny Flame has of late or the upcoming Devinn Lane volumes) for release by the Shane's World line for New Sensations. The series is supposed to look like it was shot by an amateur; something like many other Pro-Am series, and it did in virtually all scenes. The lighting would wash out the fleshtones, the camera would lose focus, and the composition of the shots varied at times but the raw energy of the show remained intact as the series tends to be good at. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio was decent but I didn't notice a lot of separation between the channels (the center channel provided pretty much all of the sound) and the dynamic range was about average for the series. The technical values in general were once again decent but a bit more work might help them even more in the future.
Body of Review: Shane's World has long been one of the better series for conveying a sense of fun along with the kind of variety most porn production companies seem afraid to attempt. For the most part, there are only two series that provide routinely pleasing action that doesn't follow a specific routine; Jack's Playground and the majority of titles from Shane's World. The latest release in the series, Shane's World 38: House Party (Collector's Edition), followed some of the cast as they partied up with a bunch of college age people (though no college affiliation or specifics were employed this time like Girls Night Out 1 and Girls Night Out 2. While not the strongest release in the series in regards to the fun factor and clarity of vision, the DVD had a lot to offer fans of porn who want something different, so here's a quick breakdown of the scenes by cast and action:
Scene One: Courtney Cummz, a very appealing blonde with a lean figure, was up in the first sex scene with Jerry after the group had some fun at the house party with a bunch of frat guys and coeds. The majority of the initial fun involved the gals stripping and working up the drunken crowd but she then went to sucking Jerry off like the seasoned champion that she is. The couple then left the party and started from scratch in the private room by the couch, with her gagging as she sucked and jerked him off (spitting to lube him up). He boned away at her pussy like it was his sole mission in life, riding him actively once she was on top of his lap (with him spanking her as much as some of you will probably be spanking your meat). The sweaty duo went at it for what seemed like forever, until Kinzie assisted slightly with her hands. The pop shot was very large and went to the upper chest, ending a decent scene.
Scene Two: Roxy Jezel, the gal featured on the middle of the right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next with old "bulletboy" himself, Jack Venice, after they got lost on a dark road while enroute to the party. She looked drunk but this wasn't a problem since she was majorly horned up and on the prowl. They left the van in favor of some rocks though they went back to the comfortable vehicle after some oral and light banging by both of them. Those who have seen her before probably know how sexually aggressive she is when in the mood and that was the case here too. She had some of that drunken passion she stores up and I only wonder how she would have fared with the crowd of guys pawing at her if she made it to the party. It ended with a chest shot, before the editing took the viewer back to the house party.
Scene Three: Leah Luv, a lean blonde that has been making a lot of porn in recent months, was up next on a couch with the infamous Kurt Lockwood. This came after some midgets were dancing around with the other ladies so if seeing a sedate professional lay back for some head seems like a step forward, I have news for you. In any case, she sucked him a little bit and he went down on her for a moment (jilling her to wetness after he set her down) but the real action began when the couple vaginally screwed. Whether or not he's a bipolar loser is beside the point in a case like this; the only thing that matters is if he keeps hard for her to ride on. Thankfully, he didn't need a dick in his ass to stay hard here and she rode the lazy guy nicely. It ended with a small facial and the movie cut back to the party with some porn star tossing by midgets.
Scene Four: Penny Flame, Kinzie Kenner, and James Deen, were up next on the air mattresses in the main hall of the party with the rest of the uncredited cast standing by amazed at what was going on before them. The ladies were great at oral, with enthusiastic Penny competing with Kinzie for top honors as best oral queen. James then got into his zone when boning the tight pussy in front of him. Both gals got in on the action and Penny ended with his load in her mouth, closing another good scene.
Scene Five: Courtney Cummz, Kinzie Kenner, and a redhead coed named "random party chick" were up next as the chunky redhead wiggled her butt to the droning beat of the music while everyone spanked her. Mr. Pete was working the camera and this led to some POV (point of view) oral with all of the gals getting in on the act. She was kind of homely but the beer goggles needed to change that aside, she worked him over like a professional. She sucked him without hands and he ended up popping in her mouth to swallow his load down. Courtney and Kinzie, being the good sports they are, then started jerking off a guy's cock in front of everyone. It was a small dick and a smaller load but a fun add on to the scene.
Scene Six: Red Heaven, Jamie Brooks, and Mr. Pete, were up last with "Mr. Pete's Club Invasion" after some dance club footage was displayed. Pete showed off his ride for the day, a Lincoln Navigator limousine that was all decked out to the hilt, and seemed about as good a dancer as I am (not good folks) before they all went back to the ride for some fun. I haven't seen Red in a long time and this was shot before Jamie had her implant surgery so I venture to say it was archival footage much like that shown in the latest volume of Jack's Playground, though no specific date was given for it. In terms of porn action, it was a straightforward oral and vaginal bang but the trio had some chemistry together that added replay value to go with the energetic performances by the cast.
Summary: Shane's World 38 was barely worth a rating of Recommended to me given the jumbled way the action moved back and forth for little or no reason. I almost gave it a rental status but the extras were solid with three bonus scenes and the level of fuck for the buck was pretty good too. The problem for me here was largely the misuse of gals like Penny Flame and the hodgepodge of source material that seemed ill suited to be put together as part of the same movie (maybe a "Shane's World: The lost Footage" type of show would've made more sense for some of it). While I can appreciate that most of the Shane's World universe is non-linear, at least having a beginning, middle and end was in order (but missing) so check it out but don't expect as much as the series has offered up in the past.
