Outside of John Stagliano and perhaps the two Dr. Butts features, the “heinie” market is one that has been relatively overlooked in this industry. You can’t include anal tapes, either, because most of them aren’t shot to appeal to the ass connoisseur or his fetish, which leaves the market wide open for some fresh material.
The new Bubble Butts series has a great marketing hook, but nothing extraordinary to back it up with. At least, judging from the first two volumes.
The first volume features the very pretty Louise Armani on the boxcover. Her segment starts off strong wherein she is seen getting out of her car in an apartment garage and is apparently being “tailed” by some mysterious guy (Tim Lake). There’s more to it than this, but it’s a pretty elaborate opening, as you’ll see, for an amateur-style shoot. Louise teases, and this segment seems to be rich with promise. However, as things develop and action ensues in the bedroom, we have on our hands a pretty standard anal scene with nary an emphasis on true ass worship. I mean, how can you have a true ass tape when the gal is on her stomach for most of the ride?
Louise Armani may as well be Giorgio Armani for the performance. Methinks the fault may lie with whoever orchestrated the sex matchup, because this scene begged for more interesting camera angles than what we get. Viewer disappointment is what you get when you make visual promises the camera doesn’t keep.
The follow-up segments are pretty generic and could fit into the mold of any amateur tape, much less a “bubble butts” one. However the Heidi Nelson/Kim Kitaine scene is a decent girl/girler, but hardly qualifies to fit the theme of this series.
Volume 2 on the other hand, shows improvement, highlighted by a pretty decent turn between Nelson and Nikki Sinn that has good camera angles. The matchup between Alicia Rio and Tim Lake is also recommended viewing. Alicia is a fun person who brings some real zest to her performances.
On the whole, give an A+ to the boxcover concept. Let’s just hope that future material is less generic and more in touch with the concept.
