Extra's: The extras this time included a 17 minute Behind the Scenes feature, a pop shot recap, a photogallery, and some covers for other titles on the other side of the DVD cover. The BTS was actually pretty interesting if you're a fan of the ladies like Jezebelle and Harmony but as has been the case at the company of late, not all the gals have had equal time on the feature. Still, it was the only extra adding value to me so while your mileage may vary, it won't vary that much.
Audio/Video Quality: Round Butt Sluts #3 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Juan Cuba for Platinum X Pictures. I'm familiar with his work at Platinum X Pictures as a behind the scenes guy and his skills as a full fledged director at various companies has been getting pretty good, even if the rough edges are slow to disappear. The lighting was only average though and this led to some issues with grain, video noise, and shadows yet he did a reasonably good job overall in presenting a solid set of visuals. The composition of the shots seemed to enhance the look of most of the ladies, showing more improvement than any other aspect of his previous works. There were no compression artifacts so even the mastering of the DVD was handled well and some of you will appreciate the lack of the formerly displayed watermark of the company logo in the lower right hand corner of the screen during the show. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo was in English but the actual audio appeared to be shot in monaural with the processing added later on (in the mastering part of the process). The vocals were generally clear but lacked any separation or dynamic range so this is an area that Juan needs to work more on (just like most of his associates in the industry). The music starting each scene was really poor but that was probably the only real surprise for me in terms of negative technical matters, the rest being pretty decently handled.

Body of Review: Juan Cuba has been an up and comer for awhile as a director in porn, working his way up the ladder over time to learn enough about his craft to really shine when things go right. His best work to date has arguably been at Platinum X Pictures (I have mixed feelings about the matter) and his latest title to make it to me is Round Butt Sluts #3, a series I last saw with Round Butt Sluts 1; a title I enjoyed far too much. The idea behind the series was that the ladies would tease the camera with an emphasis on displaying their asses, leading to some solid sex scenes based on various scenarios in the truest sense of the gonzo world. Juan really provided some solid work this time and if you like ass (but not necessarily anal), this should really work for you. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Velicity Von, the gal who was featured on the front cover with her silver shorts, was up first as she teased outside to some thumping music. The sunlight enhanced her natural curves incredibly and even the initial slow motion camerawork couldn't weaken it. The tease led her to crawling inside to blow Mark Wood, working his meat pipe as he played grab ass with her. Her oral skills have long been established in porn as being top notch, and she got some oral too when she sat on his face (to his delight I might add). She actively rode his cock in several positions, acting like she was getting off (some of the time, not just fake porn acting either). Her juicy ass was fine as it rippled during the vaginal sex, though fans might be more interested in how she did the anal. The anal was admittedly slower for her and he took his time pounding her that way, never going too deep, too fast. She did ATM and then switched positions to allow her to better access his rod in her ass, her breasts shaking as a result. By the time the 35 minute mark of the show rolled around, he was rubbing out a load onto her ass cheeks, coating them thoroughly before the camera faded away from the chemistry filled scene.
Scene Two: Harmony Rose, a cute blond with pretty eyes and a nice body, was up next as she laid out by the pool in her yellow bikini thong that enhanced her figure more than a little bit. Michael Stefano and director Juan came over and she asked if Michael wanted to christen her new house, letting him follow her inside where they took a break for her to bend over for his face on the stairs. He ate her out in such a manner that it warmed her up nicely, causing her nipples to get erect before she started sucking him off with a glee reserved for those who like to work together. Her oral attack led to them actively screwing; her pushing back on his cock before they moved to the bed to give it even more powerful thrusting. The scene ended when he gave her a vaginal creampie and she did some post coital sucking but the camera panned up to capture their faces so I can't say for sure if it was a legitimate creampie or not, even if she licked it up afterwards. Poor camera work and planning messed this one up since she was on fire throughout the scene.
Scene Three: Annette Schwartz, the German babe with a great body and appealing face, was up next as she was given a montage to lame music outside in her blue PVC skirt and black gloves. The tease would have been better at normal speed but her big, fleshy booty is always welcome in my world so when she went inside to tease some more, I couldn't look away. She played a dominatrix to subordinate Jake Malone, one of the admittedly creepier guys performing in porn these days. She teased him and made him beg to eat her ass, leading to a lot of ass worship as she brandished a cane above him. His hands were bound behind him as she continued to rub and tease him, sitting on his face before slowly blowing him. I'll admit that were it me, I'd have dropped a load of population pudding really quickly but good old pervert Jake was up to the task as he continued to orally please her. She was in control and rode him aggressively, bouncing on his cock as though she were enjoying it a lot. This led to anal and she was just as active bouncing on his cock, Jake now spanking her in a slight role reversal. They continued with ATM and numerous positions until he blew his load into a blue funnel placed in her mouth; allowing her easy access to swallow his spew. I didn't think they had any personal chemistry together but both gave quite a show and it worked for me.
Scene Four: Isis Love, a foxy little blonde with a lean body covered in red fishnets and black leather shorts, was up next as she bent over on the couch to allow Juan to spank her. The rest of the tease was even better and her playful demeanor added to the fun of the scene (as well as the strokability), with Mr. Pete being the lucky guy to work with her that day. He ate her as she squatted on the banister of the stairs, spanking and savoring the moment as he got into the action. He went for some early vaginal screwing before she moved about the house. She never spent a lot of time blowing him but she did ride him fairly well in several positions, each getting sweaty and flush from the action. He did a lot of oral on her as she sat on his face yet again, showing she was a receiver better than a giver in most ways, replete with her overly loud fake porn moans and screams. Still, they had a thing going on that I couldn't deny and I liked the scene, even if it wasn't as solid as it could have been. The scene ended in what appeared to be a genuine vaginal creampie for those who care, his seed dripping out until the end.
Scene Five: Jezebelle Bond, an older brunette that would be classified as a MILF by most people, was up last and it didn't take me long to figure out why Juan featured her so much in the BTS feature. She's been in porn for years and as she smoked her cigarette in her neon pink, see through top and black bikini bottoms, she impressed me that she was looking as good as ever, if not better. The tease was fine and Juan couldn't keep his paws off of her, leading to her crawling on the indoor stairs to enhance the shape of her booty. The lucky guy of the scene was John Strong, a studly dude that really wanted to work with her given the way he went at it. He took her from behind and pounded away on her before she blew him, leading to him tasting the fruits of her loins as well. He was rough on her but she was really turned on as a sub would be, using dirty talk as he drilled away on her pussy like a madman. I was surprised they didn't do anal given the way she seemed lost in her zone as he banged her; the gal actively riding before taking the facial from him with her eyes and mouth open. She did some post coital sucking too and the scene was really good, ending the movie with some nice enthusiasm and energy to compliment the chemistry.
Summary: Round Butt Sluts #3 by director Juan Cuba for Platinum X Pictures showed that the company and director were far from second rate as some online critics would suggest. The technical values, the ladies, and the amount of replay and stroke value made this one worthy of being suggested as Highly Recommended for ass aficionados everywhere. The levels of fuck for the buck elevated the rating a lot more than usual so you can feel comfortable that Round Butt Sluts #3 lived up to the tradition of the series (whatever happened to the second volume?); one I've found endearing thanks to the way things are handled by whomever directs it. Good job!
