Extra's: Like most of the Shane's World releases of late, there were some good extras with my favorite being the 14.5 minute long bonus scene between Julie Night and Ryan Knox as described below. It seemed shorter then the scenes from the movie but had some appeal all the same. I also really liked the 23 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage. The cast and crew were having a lot of fun and I enjoyed watching it; especially for the extra sex and nudity. It showed a playful side of things that fans will appreciate. The interplay between Devinn and Kurt, especially the ending routine, was hilarious but I expected no less from the dup that are often referred to as being on the fringes of porn society. There was also a photogallery, and trailers to shows like College Invasion 9, Blazed & Confused 1, Blazed & Confused 2, Oral Supremacy, Pork BBQ, Guide To Anal Sex, Girls Night Out 1, Girls Night Out 2, Shane's World 37, Shane's World 36, Shane's World, and Shane's World: Nerdz as well.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Devinn Lane's Guide To Strap On Sex was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Devinn Lane for release by Shane's World. The lighting and camera work looked a lot more professional then I'm used to from the company, reminding me a lot like the style of work done by director Brother Love in several scenes (except for some of the editing). The fleshtones were accurate, the composition of the angles enhanced the look of the ladies, and it seemed like a solid effort all the way around even though titles from Shane's World are generally known for having kind of nervous energy and fun over technical excellence. 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 on my home theatre and my headphones didn't provide a markedly different experience either) and the dynamic range was about average for the series. The technical values were decent in general, showing that a bit more work can have a big impact on the look and sound of a porno.

Body of Review: Devinn Lane has performed and directed for a few companies now, with her work at Shane's World probably being closest to what she likes to provide. Before complaining that they were not to her liking, she made a few movies of merit with their resources, not the least of which was Devinn Lane's Guide To Strap On Sex. The movie was advertised heavily on the basis of a single scene but it really did seem to offer up a reasonable variety of circus act sex tricks for fans of toy use, especially toy use on men. The cover said it like this: "Grab your lube, Devinn Lane is here to spice up your sex life! This couple's friendly guide teaches you everything you need to know about strap-on sex. Kurt Lockwood takes his first on camera strap-on provided by Samantha and Sandra. Katja and Christian give tips in the "advanced segment". True to Shane's World form, a real college student and Julie show you how it's really done. Not to leave anyone out, Denise K and Kylee King round out the list with the hot girl-to-girl action." If you're still interested, here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:

Scene One: Denise K. and Kylee King, the ladies in the small black & white photograph on the lower left hand corner of the front cover, were up first as they were given lessons in strap on dildo use by the experienced professional herself, Devinn Lane. The two performers were tiny compared to the curvy director and they warmed up the show with some lesbian toy use. The importance of proper equipment was shown to be paramount to successful sex with strap on dildos, leading the scenario between the gals to show them bathing in the bathtub as a warm up. They ate each other, fingered for fun, and then used some toys before donning the dildo in a harness. The ladies treated it like a real cock with some decent action as a result; as well as the use of the purple dildo of doom. It wasn't a great scene but it served as a nice warm up for the show, closing out just shy of the 28 minute mark.

Scene Two: Sandra Romain, Samantha Ryan, and Kurt Lockwood, were up in the next scene that was heavily publicized earlier this year. They were the trio featured on the lower right hand corner of the front cover for those who care, with the action being advertised as Kurt's "first time on video" to take a strap on dildo up his ass. For the record, I don't think he's gay because he likes having his ass played with and foreign objects shoved in there, nor do I care how often he has done similar acts off screen with men and women over the years. The scenario began with Kurt as Devinn's master, being pampered by her as she asked him what it would take (unconfirmed reports of the actual payment vary quite a bit; becoming part of the marketing scheme in most ways with more than a few suggesting he took a cut in pay to do it as a boost to his sagging career). After the interview between the two, Kurt was led to the bed and pushed face down by Sandra and Samantha as they played with his ass, rubbing, stroking, and licking it before inserting objects that slipped right in with practiced ease. They blew him, rode his cock with a good amount of energy, and soon were plundering his backdoor with a moderate sized toy (Sandra doing the honors). Samantha also joined in on pounding his ass as Sandra sat on his face and jerked him off after token resistance. The gals were the active partners here but I have to admit that it was probably his best scene to date (by a wide margin; pun intended) and the ladies did a fine job of working him over too.

Scene Three: Katja Kassin, before she lost so much weight earlier this year, was up next in red lingerie with another anal receiving expert; Christian XXX. Unlike Kurt, his anal experience is a bit more difficult to explain away as being straight but he swears that all the work he's done with cock in his mouth and ass was strictly gay for pay. Thankfully, his partner is one of the best anal queens in the business and an all around hotty so I really didn't care about his extracurricular activities. They made out on the couch with some oral and she rode him very aggressively, moving to anal in short order before doing some ATM on his cock. That led her to taking charge and donning a strap on dildo, going right to a larger model without any warming up involved. He was far more passive at receiving a cock in his ass then I've seen in other movies (like the Strap Attack series) and she gave him some fine head as she fingered his ass towards the end, eventually causing him to jerk off a moderate load onto her titties. It was actually a decent scene for her and fans of guys eating their own spew might like it even more than I did.

Scene Four: Lexi Love, a cute and all natural gal, was up next with an Asian guy named John (AKA: Tony), in a minimalist setting. This was introduced as his first scene on camera though he admitted to engaging in anal play as a receiver during the interview and BTS footage. His cock was the smallest of the entire cast but that might give some of you out there a glimmer of hope as she blew him with ease before fingering and spitting on his asshole. She was wearing her toy from the beginning so there was no doubt he was going to take it, especially after she warmed him up with multiple fingers. She banged him and then showed how loose he got, nearly fisting him but leaving the thumb out for legal purposes; soon poking him with the dildo yet again. As a reward for being such a good sport, she gave him some pussy to ride before jerking him off onto her ass cheek; showing that female domination doesn't have to be all about SMBD meanness.

Scene Five: Julie Night, a cute gal with pretty eyes and dark hair these days, took lessons on a bed from Devinn, with a slightly anxious Jason Crew sitting beside her. Julie wanted to advance his receiving end faster than he did but he was made to graduate to the bigger stuff sooner then he expected he would. She gave him a good blowjob, started fingering him, and soon had a small toy probing him as she gave up some dirty talk. As she gave him bigger toys, she made him beat off with some minimal oral before the really big toys stretched him asunder. She was clearly getting off on the power trip of fucking his ass and he seemed a bit reserved about letting her continue, with some foot sucking action by her to sweeten the deal. He got to bang her pussy for a few minutes until popping on her face as part of the bargain; not exactly a fair trade considering the disparities in size between his modest equipment and the toys she jammed into him.

Bonus Scene: Julie Night, overly anxious to anally pillage tattooed Ryan Knox, was up in a 14.5 minute long bonus scene. It started with Devinn describing the needed accessories and soon found Julie deepthroating him with the greatest of ease. He's not one of the bigger guys in porn but her sloppy hummer made the scene worthy all by itself, though he wasn't too comfortable when she took her tongue to the other side and began using toys to stretch him wide open. She's a kinky gal to begin with so it came as no surprise that she'd start using larger toys and sucking his feet before nailing him hardcore with the strap on dildo. The look on his face showed that she was enjoying it more then he was, even as she jerked him off. Still, if you like this kind of thing, she did take the facial well and it fit the advertised action.

Summary: Devinn Lane's Guide To Strap On Sex by director Devinn Lane for release by Shane's World wasn't the best fem-dom strap on dildo flick available but it was more interesting then the Adam & Eve instructional version starring Nina Hartley. The use of a decent cast of ladies and mixture of several layers of men (from bottom of the barrel to second tier at least) helped make it more interesting to watch and pick up tips about. The technical values of the movie were better then anything else by Devinn for the company with solid enough scenes and extras to merit a rating of Recommended. In short, Devinn Lane's Guide To Strap On Sex could prove to be a handy guide for those interested in "sticking it to the man" or for stroking fodder if seeing men take it hard turns you on. If you buy this as a gift for your woman, be sure to invest in a chastity belt for your delicate butt or at least sleep on your back with one eye open (or the eye getting opened will be yours).
