I give this video a good rating mostly because I applaud innovation in the adult video industry. It takes courage to try something new, and these producers should be congratulated for taking a risk and for making what they claim is "the first adult interactive video game." You may want to see it just to see so-called "history" in the making.
I can imagine using this tape as an icebreaker. What date or what group of partygoers wouldn't be curious to see and to participate in a sex video game. It conjures up images of high-tech strip poker. But unfortunately, the fantasy of what this tape could have been is far more titillating than reality.
The Sex Game, a series of 16 multiple choice questions about sex (from "What is the percentage of women wearing D-cups?" to "What is the meaning of Roman Culture?"), is hosted by two supposedly married couples (Buddy Love, Elle Rio, Gail Force and Jesse Easton). Each answer is illustrated with movie clips from other Essex videos. The audience pauses their VCR as they write down their answer and score points for the correct answer.
I must say, the temptation to switch this off during the early segments exists. Early on, the clips are dull. But as the tape progresses, many of the clips get better. Even the four "hosts" finally shut up and have sex, which they do best. As a game, this video is a tedious one-night stand (but then again, so are most of the mainstream video games). As a conversation piece, it just may help you get an upper hand in your own game.
