Hot Sweet Honey may start slow, but it intensifies quickly to deliver an entertaining and well-made piece of adult entertainment. After what seems like never-ending credits and a standard boy-girl scene, this shot-on-video feature puts out some interesting and unique sex that is both hormone and thought stimulating.
Honey Wilder welcomes the viewer into her home for what must be a typical day in the life of a top adult film star. But while some of the scenes are pretty basic (like the new starlet who stops by to learn how to perform oral sex in front of the camera), there are several encounters that set this video apart from the rest of the market. There's the cooking scene where Honey bakes a cake, stressing the importance of creme and well-lubricated utensils, while in the background Beverly Bliss licks the batter off Steve Powers' spoon, and a rubber duckie has the time of its inanimate life in a bathtub masturbation scene that has the water bubbling.
But the most unique scene is where the viewer gets to direct a sex scene. With the help of an enclosed script and numbers flashing on the screen, the viewer interjects directions to the cast and the players react accordingly. The only problem is, if you don't get a script (like me) the whole scene lacks purpose. This may be a problem with rentals if some people "forget" to put the script back in the box when they return the film.
The production values are excellent for a video feature —sharp picture, clear sound, good lighting— and director T.T. Lord gets an honest effort from his entire staff. Combine that with raunchy sex and viewer participation and you will find Hot Sweet Honey is a tape that is a heckuva lot of fun to watch.
