Extras: The best extra was a 17+ minute Behind the Scenes feature that outlined some of the preparation for the action as director Mike Quasar talks to the cast and crew (including Mark Kismet and ancient Barry Wood), Courtney drinking my preferred soft drink (Mountain Dew), joking all the time. It was fun to watch and in lieu of formal credits, it served to show who everyone was. There were also 17 minutes of trailers, a true double sided DVD cover, and a cardboard slipcase.
Audio/Video Quality: Interactive Sex With Courtney Cummz was presented in 1.85:1 non-anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Mike Quasar for release by Zero Tolerance. This being the first virtual sex release by the company, they knew who to use as Mike is their most versatile director. There was a fair amount of POV (point of view) sex and the lighting was generally quite nicely handled with a balance between the harsher lights of gonzo and the softer lights of feature porn being deployed for the clips. There were multiple angles as with other companies (though not on the tease portion of the show) and what was offered was nicely put together. It wasn't the absolute best looking such release but it was very competitive with other companies and will hopefully be improved on in the future (if sales warrant it of course). The audio was in 2.0 Dolby Digital English. Aside from a single section of droning music, the vocals were the primary means of communicating the mode of clips. They were slightly on the low side (or perhaps a few of them were just on the loud side) but Courtney is an excellent performer when it comes to vocalizing dirty talk and the audio picked it up well.

Body of Review: Courtney Cummz is currently one of the best performers in porn for a gal that basically does it all, and does it well with the kind of looks that put her above the masses of "I'll do anything" skanky types that need to compete by doing more rather than rely on looks alone. This is a unique situation that only a handful of ladies can lay claim to having a complete package. Having signed a short term performance contract with Zero Tolerance last year, Courtney evaded my not-so-pithy musings since the company was cheap about sending review copies but they eventually came around and I was soon getting my fix of the lovely hotty regularly. Her latest release is Interactive Sex With Courtney Cummz, a virtual sex DVD where the viewer can pick from a discrete series of choices to control what Courtney will do and how she'll do it. This is not unlike the videogames of yesteryear called "rail games" where the limited choices were sometimes frustrating. Still, for porn, this might work better than gonzo or the point of view (POV) material most men seem to enjoy these days for you and the clips were short enough to allow for some substantial variety.
Until recently, there were only two superpowers in the virtual sex world for porn: Digital Playground and Digital Sin, with all others being third rate (in technological terms at least) by comparison. Anarchy Films started their own low-tech series that has been quite good in my limited experience and Interactive Sex With Courtney Cummz is first such title from Zero Tolerance. Here's a look at the clips included to give you an idea of what choices you had, noting that no condoms were used but the clips were limited in terms of choices:
Striptease: After the opening minute and a half tease session where contract starlet (at the time) Courtney Cummz gave an overview of the material on the DVD, she allows you to pick from one of three variations during the formal striptease session consisting of a Schoolgirl, Teacher, or Nurse. This being porn, they are stripper versions of said outfits, and she takes a few minutes disrobing them to a thumping bass-heavy beat. I liked the choices though a longer session with each would have been appreciated even more. The teacher lasted almost five minutes and the others clocked in less than that but each had their own appeal depending on what fantasies you enjoy seeing played out. She didn't have time to do a whole lot but the setting varied too with the teacher being outdoors for those who care. As a side note, this was the only area of the main show where there were not multiple camera angles.
Masturbation: Once you chose this one, the couch has our lovely hotty masturbating with her fingers for around four minutes. I'd offer to lick her fingers clean but I'm a pervert like that so you have to understand where I'm coming from. You can also select a shorter session of her using a dildo on her pussy or a third choice with a blue toy in her ass, with each scene having her talk dirty to the camera.
Oral: The oral allows a trio of choices as well with a few minutes of head using the cock of Chris Charming or Evan Stone, showing her getting it all wet by spitting on it and jerking him off as the primary choice (Evan was up first I believe). If you choose the second option, the double BJ, the scene moves to showing Courtney and Eva Angelina teaming up on a cock for about four minutes with separate options of the ladies talking dirty or "shutting the fuck up". They really didn't talk all that much dirty talk during that selection but it still allowed a nice set of choices. The third choice was a male pop shot choice with real semen used unlike the competition that use (primarily) fake CGI pop shots.
Missionary: By selecting this choice, your choices change to include fucking Courtney's pussy all nude, in her schoolgirl outfit, or in her stripper nurse outfit. A few minutes of each are offered and the default is a slow fuck in her birthday suit. You can also increase the tempo by selecting fast & furious if that's what you want with separate choices being a creampie, anal, or the cum/pop shot. If you select one of these side options, your other choices are limited during that portion (she doesn't let you fuck her as a teacher or schoolgirl anally as one example).
Cowgirl: The cowgirl has her facing her partner with the side choice of the nurse outfit if you don't want the birthday suit standard. You again have the choice of the anal and the pop shot with a fast option giving you another dynamic to work with. As with the previous scene, you can't have every option so if you want to anally fuck the nurse, you're out of luck.
Doggy: A personal favorite, the doggy position doesn't have any of the outfit choices from before but it does have anal, cum and creampie options as well as the fast option if the slow version is too slow for you. She uses a lot of dirty talk in these scenes so fans of that will get a kick out of it and the added bonus is that the music is not a big factor once you begin.
Courtney & Friend: Courtney and Eva Angelina is the final section to enjoy with some rubbing as a start that lasts about a minute and change. You can select the Kissing option to have them intertwined and kissing each other on the bed in their lingerie, twice as much action with the gals licking each other and going down on one another (with an option to pick who is the active partner), a strap on dildo section where you can pick either of them to bone the pussy of the other, or the aforementioned double blowjob session.
Summary: Interactive Sex With Courtney Cummz was as good a use of director Mike Quasar as I've seen in recent weeks since he is the top talent at the company. Courtney Cummz is also a very skilled, attractive young lady so the pairing of their relative talents makes sense to this reviewer, even if I'm not generally a fan of the genre. By comparison, the up side to this one is that the pop shots are real and the selections appear on the screen faster. The corresponding down side is that there are fewer choices than some of the other companies and the extras were certainly not what I'd expect out of the opening volley by the company to challenge the competition and showcase their contract hotty. Had this title come out five years ago, it would have been right up there beside the others as an example of innovative porn but due to the limitations of the resources involved, it becomes a title that fans of virtual sex shows and of Courtney will definitely want to pick up but of questionable merit to others. I'm a fan and think it should be Recommended as long as you understand the limitations of the genre and appreciate Courtney (slavering fanboys might want to up the rating even higher) but there really wasn't any major breakthrough with the DVD as it took a low-tech route to compete.
