Chemistry 3: Special Edition

Vivid Entertainment/Smart Ass Productions

Genre: Gonzo

Director: Tristan Taormino

Cast: Roxy DeVille, Derrick Pierce, Jada Fire, Christian, Hillary Scott, Steven St. Croix
Non-sex role: Tristan Taormino

Length: 205:35 minutes

Date of Production: 10/16/2006


Here was the performing cast.

Extras: The first disc had nothing but the majority of the movie and a positions room (unless you count the commercial at the front of the DVD) so I’ll mention the appealing fold open case the double disc set came in. The hubs held the discs on securely but not too tightly, making me feel better than when I hear the tell tale rattling on a disc or fret about bending a disc to free it from the hub. The second disc had a wealth of extras in addition to the rest of the movie. It started off with a lot of photogallery stuff in the form of slide shows, the women’s section lasting by far the longest but the men getting some time too as well as BTS and the standard version. There were then four sections that fell under the bonus scene realm, totaling 73:55 minutes long, providing extra roundtable discussion, some extensive deleted footage form the movie, more confessions, and even a short bit from the fourth volume in the series starring Penny Flame and Christian; all credited to Ten C as cameraman (though the styles varied and I was pretty sure others worked the cameras too). There were then trailers to Tristan’s other releases, including Chemistry 1, Chemistry 2, Guide to Anal Sex, Guide to Cunnilingus, and some spam.

Condoms: None


Roxy DeVille is always a hotty!

Audio/Video Quality: Chemistry 3 was presented in 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Tristan Taormino for distribution by Vivid Entertainment (with help from Hank Hoffman, Ralph Parfait, Fliktor, Ten C., Tristan and the rest of the cast of course). The movie was shot in HD (the bitrate all over the place but typically higher than before) though in the same fashion as the various Shane’s World series as a form of porn reality TV show, resulting in a decidedly mixed set of technical values (though showing a lot of improvement from the previous volumes in the series). Some of the camera work was by the performers themselves, tending to show a less movement than the last time I saw the series, but Ralph’s work was clearly the steadiest this time with Tristan’s limited work (at least as credited on the Perv-Cam) being the worst. At other times, the lighting would be candlelight or even whatever ambient light peeked in from the mostly closed doors and windows; even a fogged up window closing out one avenue of attack for a great shower sequence. In all then, the visuals impressed me with how much better they looked but never forgetting that part of the draw of the movie was the gimmick of the unknown and risk taking. Apart from the Shane’s World analogy, this was very much like a condensed porno version of MTV’s The Real World and looked like it so don’t expect the visuals to look to polished and professional (lots of grain, video noise, and other flaws). The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English in 192 Kbps with similar flaws (low levels, abrupt changes that weren’t compensated for, and background noise) but like the visuals, it didn’t truly detract from the experiment very much. The music added to the show by Rolande for the theme song striking me as better handled this time for some reason.


Hillary Scott looked really good here.

Body of Review: Tristan Taormino is certainly one of the more successful new directors at Vivid Entertainment these days; eschewing the formulaic style of porn scene for a duality of instructional videos and a true gonzo series worthy of your time called the Chemistry Series. The latest volume of this one is Chemistry 3: Special Edition, and true to the form of Chemistry 1 and Chemistry 2, it put six performers in the same house for 36 hours; with limited rules of engagement as they had sex that they wanted to have; not the scripted pairings you will find regularly in the industry. The back cover said it like this: “Director Tristan Taormino takes six porn stars to a secluded house for 36 hours. Each has a strong, unique personality; their only common bond being the adult industry. As they get to know each other, the erotic encounters unfold as they would naturally; the performers decide the who, what, when and where. There is no script and no schedule; the sex is completely spontaneous. In between the scenes, cast mates go into a private "confessional," where they speak openly and honestly about working in the adult industry, their relationships, their fantasies ... and dish the dirt on their fellow castmates. Some revelations are deeply personal, others unexpectedly provocative. What's alway provocative is the "Perv Cam", which the actors use on each other to shoot absolutely anything - like each other's scenes, spontaneous encounters, and intimate moments behind the scenes.” If that sounds as good to you as it did to me, consider that no condoms were used and none of the scenes seemed to be staged or fake, elevating the replay value as Tristan has finally found just how to capture the lightning in a bottle she has long been attempting to do:


Jada Fire inspires many men for some "Jungle Love".

Scene One: Roxy DeVille, a brunette with a lot of talent, was up first as she masturbated and then took care of Derrick Pierce in the bedroom. While claiming to be somehow less than thrilling sexually, she almost always brings a lot of enthusiasm to her scenes, this one being no different as she started slobbing his knob aggressively. Unlike some ladies that treat a cock like a disposable toy, she really savored the taste as she smacked it around coyly, deepthroating him while making eye contact to elevate their connection even more. Derrick being somewhat of a gentleman, he held her hair as she worked the shaft, giving her some oral before pounding away at her cookie. Her all natural body looked good during the vaginally penetrative sex, Roxy looking best when actively riding but still showing a love of cock as he porked away. She did some PTM as she cleaned his dick between positions, teasing him verbally more than a little as they continued to bone. When the time came, he busted a nut of population pudding all over her back and ass; dripping in sweat before the two finished up around the 40 minute mark of the scene. (at which point he remarked that she was “deceptively hot”; no kidding Sherlock!) Whew!

Scene Two: Jada Fire, an energetic black gal that has rocked the world of many fans over the years, was up next in a scene with Hillary Scott, and Christian in bed. Initially, there was a lot of the talking head footage the series employs to get a feel for the performers but then Jada was sucking away at Christian’s cock like it were the only thing in the world. Roxy was on camera and Hillary busted in since it was supposed to be her scene, Jada apologizing but all three of them going at it as Jada “got her quickie” from him by impaling her pussy on his rod while he kissed Hillary. Both gals sucked him off some more and Hillary took her chance to bone; getting interrupted by Tristan for the “real” scene in the shower which followed (he did not pop here).


Hillary's tiny bikini did not last long!

Scene Three: Hillary Scott, left unsatisfied by the last bout of boning, was given a more intimate moment with Christian in the shower as Jada shot the camera and made comments; the wet antics looking better than the bedroom footage taken before. Jada was outside looking in while the regular camera had a better, indoor vantage point to see them going at each other; the blowjob and vaginal screwing showing both to be totally into the moment. His cock glistened with her juices as she bounced on the focal point of his sexuality, the action captured best by the indoor camera once the windows steamed up to knock Jada out of the shooting business for the moment. Hillary was loud and proud at her work, taking the facial well and even seeming to swallow some of it before things closed up and he kissed her semen coated lips.


Like Hillary, Roxy DeVille is always welcome in my pool!

Scene Four: Roxy DeVille, Jada Fire, and Derrick Pierce, were up next in bed when he got bored. There was more spontaneity this time, not starting at the traditional beginning of the scene and working through on a linear path; Jada taking the cock hard as Roxy embraced her. Roxy did some POV action as Derrick plowed into her pussy, the gal rubbing her clitoris while making the biggest smile in porn (and flipping off the camera playfully). Jada had left once satisfied and this duo finished up though I didn’t see a pop shot (maybe he was practicing Tantric sex to last longer during the 36 hour shoot). Roxy claimed they were “practicing our softcore” but smacked his cock pretty hard (he winced) but it was a heated little pairing all the same and not being a devoted semen lover like some folks, the lack of a pop shot wasn’t a problem for me.


Tristan surrounded by the cast at the end of the movie.

Scene Five: Jada Fire, still as frisky as ever, was up next on the couch with stately Steven St. Croix; both of them shown giving dialogue regarding the show and life in general. He praised her soft lips and fingered her ass as the lighting shifted, Roxy working one of the cameras while Jada swallowed and jerked off his penis enthusiastically. Steven might have been the least gifted male of the show in terms of size but he made up for it in experience, plowing into her rapidly as the tempo of the scene built up. Her ass was perfect and while the shooting of the scene itself was the weakest of the pairings, the raw energy was palpable as their chemistry (it had to be said) rocked the house. Each scene had plenty of energy, enthusiasm, and yes, chemistry but something about these two was off the charts in terms of their desire to work together. He did some anal but it was not that act that made the scene so good; it was how well they connected before he launched one of the largest pop shots of the show all over her front body. Yow!

Scene Six: The entire cast was up next in what was labeled as “Day Two” on the second disc but the shorter clips started with Roxy and Derrick in the hot tub, soon joined by Hillary, Steven, Christian and Jada. The pool antics had the guys going down on the gals and vice verse (heavy on the vice of course), but the editing kept the ball rolling until Jada and Derrick broke off to do some couch sex. The audio clipped out a few times here but she regarded him as prime beefcake and took full advantage of her role while he savored the idea that the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice. The use of a pocket rocket vibrator enhanced the moment for her and she was soon alternating between an aggressive ride on his lap and sucking his dick clean. It seemed she was so good that he almost popped prematurely in fact so they slowed down a bit to give a chance to recover, the load coming out onto her lower abdomen as he jerked it out.

Scene Seven: Roxy was then partnered up with Steven on an easy chair, the gal kidding around with him as she gave him full access to her wonderful crotch, laughing as he joked about having her anally when drunk (it didn’t happen). She skipped blowing him for the immediate satisfaction of the ride, showing more energy then before until it was time for some PTM clean up. There was no rush to this scene and both of them seemed willing to delay getting off in favor of prolonging the dynamic a bit; resulting in a lot of pleasing stroke material for your enjoyment. Steven did more joking about penetrating her ass when the cameraman suggested Tristan get something for Steven’s ass; resulting in Steven dropping the suggestion and sucking her feet as he continued pounding her pussy. I was surprised to see that she took a vaginal creampie here, licking up some of the remains from the bar top as the camera followed her sweet body. Whew!

Scene Eight: Hillary was then sitting in the lap of Christian as Jada shot some great additional footage of the two at play; Hillary devoted to his cock and making it clear there would be no sharing this time. This did not prove to last long as Jada handed him the camera and allowed him to do some POV work as the gals shared the rod, Jada raising the act to an art form before Hillary went back to riding him hard. Derrick and Roxy then came into the picture and everyone switched partners around, thankfully keeping to the gal with guy scenario of mainstream porn (though Art is out there somewhere fussing about it I’ll bet). Facials and handjobs finished things up, Jada joining in to give Christian a little jungle love as Tristan wielded the camera a little less steady than it had been to this point. There were some little clips after that but aside from Steven drilling Hillary on the main bed while the others tried to wrap things up with Tristan, that was largely it for the movie.

Summary: Chemistry 3 by director Tristan Taormino for Vivid Entertainment was one of those times that I knew she really hit the mark hard and consistently, providing the kind of replay, stroke, and fuck for the buck value that impressed me as something fitting of the young lady. Even forgetting her status as a famed author, the awards she has already won, and her intelligent lectures of all topics related to sexual practices, Tristan reminds me that she crafts the stage for the sex to take place more than directs, the final outcome a big, happy mess that so many of you will love. In short, Chemistry 3: Special Edition outdid Chemistry 1 and Chemistry 2 in several ways; getting the real deal captured on video better than ever before, earning every bit of the Highly Recommended rating I gave it. Great job!
