Cast: Sarah Twain, Mick Blue, Steve Holmes, Harmony, Mr. Pete, Rick Roberts, Nikki Nievez, Natalli Di Angelo, David Perry, Toni Ribas, Lucy Lee, Erik Everhard
Length: 121 minutes
Date of Production: 10/25/2005 to 12/15/2005
Extras: The best extra was easily the 22 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Dawayne Dane that showcased the cast and crew as they readied for their scenes and engaged in a variety of sex acts and preparations for their scenes, with a special bonus of the curvy cutie make up artist jacking half the guys off. There a lot of material on the still photography too so check it out when you pick up the disc. There was also a photogallery based on the pictures taken during the shoot, a cumshot recap, a true double sided DVD cover, and trailers to movies like Spanish Harlem, Up'R Class 3Hand To Mouth 2, Cum Beggars 3, Finger Licking Good 2, and Crack Addict 2.

Audio/Video Quality: Sloppy Seconds was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by Chris Streams for release by 3rd Degree. The lighting was almost always handled nicely, limiting the grain and other visual flaws in the open settings of the house (living room and bedroom). The composition of the shots was largely enhancing to the ladies as they diddled themselves or took on their partners with a few spots in need of fill lighting but otherwise covering up most of their minor flaws. There were no compression artifacts and the fleshtones were very accurate, making this one visually appealing to me. The 2.0 stereo audio was a bit more basic with no separation or major dynamic range but I could almost always hear what was said and the music didn't interfere with my viewing pleasure. There also a second audio track for those who like Spanish vocals but as great as my language skills may be, I couldn't say I'd be able to properly evaluate this one on the translation merits alone.
Body of Review: Chris Streams hasn't made a lot of porn (at least under that name) but he's considered an up and comer by more than a few people in the industry thanks in large part to the way he showcases some of the performers in his movies. That said, his work for 3rd Degree seems to be part of the reason why he's a rising star and his latest release for them is Sloppy Seconds. The movie focuses on gonzo sex where the ladies get to engage in hardcore sex, take a load in one of their three holes, and then have a second guy go for…you guessed it; Sloppy Seconds. Personally, I'm a fan of clean firsts but if some guy wants to go after me, more power to him I say. Still, the skill level of the cast was rarely in question this time and here's a look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Sarah Twain, a skinny brunette with a long, lean body, was up first wearing a black bikini outfit that enhanced her look a fair amount. She teased the camera by standing over it as she showed off her body to the director. This involved a short striptease and some masturbation but the action quickly changed when Mick Blue and Steve Holmes entered the picture. Mick took the pussy while the other jammed his rod in her mouth, though they swapped out for her to do some heated PTM (the ATM came afterwards) on Mick. The anal came soon enough and the guys drilled her DP style (but took turns on her tight ass too). She wasn't the most active gal I've watched but her look alone showed some potential worth exploring up close and personal, before the pop shots. In this case, the vaginal creampie was lame since Mick pulled out to pop on, not in, her pussy with Steve drilling her "sloppy seconds" style to give her a mouthful of spew to close with.
Scene Two: Harmony, a major hotty wearing a hat that said "dirty" and a shirt with an airbrushed "slut" on it, was up next as she followed the formula of the show. Chris played with her in POV style a little but it was Mr. Pete that got to really work her sweet body over. All natural bodies like hers seem to be a dying breed in porn but her ass was built for fun and he knew it. The oral was short but the pounding vaginal showed her cheeks bounce so nicely I could've dropped a load (her fingering her ass didn't hurt any though). She was an active and aggressive sex partner, doing the taste testing as though she loved tasting her juices off of him for example, and she loved when he got rough with her. The anal was even better and the couple was joined by tall Ricky Roberts for the latter part of the show (Pete popped in the pussy while he blew a load into her mouth). In all, she was a great performer here and the guys weren't bad either.
Scene Three: Nikki Nievez, a gal that might not look like a Vivid gal but has a lot of potential in terms of sexual skill and heat, was up next in her blue bikini as she did a little tease for Mr. Pete and Steve Holmes on the couch. Steve tapped her pussy while she blew Pete (after they nearly came to blows about it), with the guys switching roles soon enough. She had a lot of emphasis on dirty talk but managed to take them in all three holes nonetheless. The DP wasn't her best but she has long been comfortable with anal and I think she'd have been better if she just did one of them at a time. Fans of foot fetish action will appreciate the nod made for your kink, with the flexible gal popping a foot in Pete's mouth and more. PTM, ATM, and a couple of mouth loads of semen rounded out the scene but while it wasn't her best work, it did showcase her skills rather well.
Scene Four: Natalli Di Angelo, the beauty on the front DVD cover, will appeal to those of you into the skinny blonde look with her all natural curves on the lean side but a positive attitude about sex. After the tease, her partners were David Perry and Toni Ribas; both known for the manner in which they go at their partners nonstop. Tony took dibs on hitting that pussy first while David settled down for a mechanical blowjob but this soon changed and they were banging her every which way but loose with her seeming to enjoy the DP. The good news is that she seemed to enjoy the oral better once they had soaked their cocks in her pussy and ass juice, but the better news was how talented she was bouncing on their meat in the first place. They dropped loads as needed and she seemed to thoroughly enjoy them but while I didn't get the impression she had any specific chemistry with them, the majority of the scene showed her having a lot of energy, drive, and skill in the art of milking a nut.
Scene Five: Lucy Lee, a brunette gal with incredibly huge stripper shoes on, was up last as she worked with Erik Everhard and Steve "horse dick" Holmes on the couch. There was no tease or solo action this time, greatly weakening it for me, but Steve won the coin toss and seemed happy to stretch her out in the ass after snacking on her pussy crack. This led to a dick duel where both guy's dicks got to touch each other when she blew them at the same time. The men then went back to the formula where they each took a hole, eventually DP'ing her to stretch her out. She was a lazy fuck this time and the scene came across as a filler, but Erik's anal creampie seemed to be handled well by her and the scene was worth a single look.
Summary: Sloppy Seconds had four good scenes and some solid extras with attractive women and decent technical values so I rated it as Recommended. It could've finished up better and had some more polishing up applied to it but the overall quality was enough to continue the 40 year old director's ascent to his proper place. Chris Streams may not be the best in the business (yet) but with a bit more experience, he's sure to be more appreciated by the masses if promoted as well as some of his (less talented) peers in the field. If you like seeing sloppy seconds, you could do far worse than this quality production so check it out.
