Cast: Annette Schwartz, Otto Bauer, Cassandra Cruz, Audrey Hollander, Ben English, Alexa Von Tess, Alec Knight, Nakia D'Alene, Alex Sanders, Sammy Cruz
Length: 138.5 minutes
Date of Production: 7/6/2006
Extra's: The best extra was the 13 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage from Mad Bob; one of the cameramen on the movie. I would have preferred it if all the ladies had more of a chance to shine during the feature but it was full of masturbation action by the gals more than anything else (though Otto seemed to be jacked up a bit too). There was also a cumshot recap, a set of eight trailers, a photogallery, a bit of spam, and a double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Almost Virgins 3 was presented in a 1.85:1 ratio non-anamorphic letterboxed widescreen color that looked nice in most ways as directed by Otto Bauer for release by Mach 2/Supercore. In his favor, Otto wisely used the substantial talents of Jim Powers on camera and assisting with the other technical matters so with that kind of wealth of technical knowledge helping him, it really shouldn't be a surprise that the fleshtones looked accurate, the composition of the camera angles enhanced the looks of the cast, and the amount of grain and video noise was minimal. I saw no compression artifacts either and this led me to think the DVD mastering was well handled too. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English with no separation worth mentioning on the vocal aspects of the movie but the music was pretty darned good even if a few more lines might've helped keep it from sounding repetitive.

Body of Review: Otto Bauer has proven his skills on booth sides of the camera in porn of late, showing he is more than just the hanger on of hotty Audrey Hollander as some initially suggested a while back. As he carves out his own niche directing for Mach 2, the man seems to be evolving his own style that combines some humor with the hardcore action most of you want to see. His latest effort is Almost Virgins 3, a collection of scenes starring newcomers to the field of porn that have been in a limited number of movies or at least trying something new in their respective scenes. As a whole, the down side of newcomers; including gals that could barely handle anal as an example, was present but the freshness factor and ability of Otto to put them to ease and coax out a good performance balanced that out. Here's a brief look at the scenes, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Annette Schwartz, the blonde cutie seen on the second from the left hand side of the front DVD cover, was up first as she seemed nervous about doing her second anal scene (talking to the cameraman, Jim, about her scene with Rocco). She teased the camera by showing off her body, eventually fingering her ass with multiple fingers at his request. Otto Bauer then took over to finger her perfect pucker before she showed her oral talents on his cock. She did a fine job of blowing him, with some active enthusiasm, leading to him pounding away at her ass; slowly at first but with an increasing tempo. Once she was in reverse cowgirl, she even actively rode his cock, fingering her pussy and panting as though he were doing a better job than Rocco did. She gyrated her hips and otherwise gave it up in a really hot manner, showing her best moves in what I consider to be her best scene ever (she's had a few scenes but this was a very hot one with chemistry and passion). She did ATM, jerked him off, and took a spanking before he jerked off his load to her mouth for swallowing; a solid ending for the duo.
Scene Two: Cassandra Cruz, the curvy Latina seen on the far left side of the front DVD cover, was up next as she worried about her scene so she got some pointers from starlet Audrey Hollander. Audrey had her practice by blowing a banana, shoving it in the seasoned vet's ass before doing ATM (Audrey was dressed in a cool red corset, black fishnet stockings, and stripper shoes while Cruz wore a more mundane outfit). I originally wondered what Audrey was doing in such a title but this was a decent manner in which to utilize her many talents, soon using the banana on Cassandra's pussy as she spanked her ass. Once warmed up, Ben English joined them with the lessons continuing on his cock; both gals slobbing his knob in their unique style before he began boning Audrey's ass. She was an active rider of cock and that led to Cassandra taking him on in her pussy. Audrey was rough with her, spanking and even choking her in the kitchen setting; both gals showing lots of oral on the other as the scene progressed. It ended when Ben rubbed out a load to her mouth with the gals cumswapping and swallowing to finish another good scene.
Scene Three: Alexa Von Tess, the brunette seen as the second from the right hand side on the front DVD cover, was up next as Otto explained to her the importance of sports while she sat bewildered on the edge of the pool table in her orange bikini while Alec Knight readied to play with her. He went down on her well enough, warming her up for the decent hummer she gave him. That led to a combination of sexual positions in her pussy and more blowjob action that showed she was an up & comer as they boned on the pool table. The way she savored cock was her strong suite since she was too passive at riding him but she did start to warm up after awhile so she has a lot of untapped potential. I didn't mind that she didn't do anal since she still needs to master her pussy but she did PTM with ease and her all natural body was pleasing to the eye so it wasn't a bad way to spend some time. The scene ended with her taking his poorly aimed facial, getting some in her mouth but not much.
Scene Four: Nakia D'Alene, another lean blonde as seen on the far right side of the front DVD cover, had done four anal scenes in the past but still looked pretty fresh as she they talked about her affiliation with LA Direct Models, calling in Skeeter Kerkove in a cameo role to get his stamp of approval. Alex Sanders joined the little discussion (it was hilarious by the way) and then the others left to let him go down on her on the couch as he readied her for the sex. After he thoroughly rimmed her and fingered her perfect pucker, he started to slowly screw her tight little ass, going slowly at first but picking up the pace as time went on. She then blew him with some ATM as a side benefit, going back and forth between oral and anal while claiming in the heat of passion that Alex was the best anal sex partner she ever had. She wasn't on top of him for long but when she was, she showed some ability to be very active, letting him do most of the work otherwise. It wasn't a great scene since she relied on him providing most of the motion but she was another with great potential and it was again a decent scene otherwise (she appeared to get off and like him more than a little bit beyond the pay for play aspect of the scene). I couldn't tell if she swallowed or not since the camera faded away too soon but it was a fair pop shot nonetheless.
Scene Five: Sammy Cruz, the gal featured on the center of the front DVD cover in the red top and blue jean skirt, was up last as she took some lessons from Audrey Hollander on the couch. They fingered one another and spent a lot of time on the ass with Sammy giving her four fingers in the ass, leading Audrey to spend ample time on her backside too. Once warmed up, Otto Bauer joined them to start boning Sammy's ass in doggy, proving to be more difficult for her than it would've been had Audrey taken the cock. I liked Audrey's more womanly curves but each took his hard cock inside their ass, sucking his cock clean from time to time as the scene continued to switch them up and move them around. Otto's dirty talk was a bit distracting for me but the worst part was how passive Sammy was about riding cock anally. She seemed to be almost a toy for the established couple, making the scene less appealing to me but Audrey made it worth watching a few times. The ending was a swallowed pop shot for those who care but it was the weakest scene of the movie for me, even if Sammy was a cutie.
Summary: Almost Virgins 3 was another example of why director Otto Bauer is worth looking into for the raincoater crowd; his works have energy, passion, and show the cast often getting into the action (check out the BTS feature to see some examples of this when they think the cameras are off). The amount of fuck for the buck was solid, the extras decent, and the technical values very high on the food chain so I rated Almost Virgins 3 as Recommended. If a few of the newcomers had been a bit more skilled in what they were doing, I'd have raised the rating a notch too, and some of you like the passive ladies a lot more than I do so that would be a signal for those of you to adjust your personal ratings accordingly. If Otto continues to provide this kind of quality, I might have to look up some of his back catalog titles (the covers of which offered up a lot of performers fans can't get enough of).
