Vivid Girl Confidential: Tia Bella

Studio: Vivid » Review by Michael Vega » Review Date: 5/9/04

XCritic's Advice: Watch On Demand

Genre: Compilation

Cast: See review.

Length: approx 2hrs

Extras: "Bonus Room" [3 extra scenes], "Behind the Scenes", & a Photo Gallery. There are also some previews, an ad for Vivid's website & something called "Sexy Talk" which is actually the FORCED phone sex ads at the beginning [does anyone actually PAY for that..?]

Audio/Video: The video is 1.33:1 full frame ratio. Since the ten scenes are culled from ten different films, the picture quality and audio is inconsistent. The majority are shot on video and have acceptable audio and video.

Preface about compilations: It's my belief that compilations are much better than full features. I mean, think about it. Why do people watch Adult films? Is it for the compelling storylines? How 'bout the Oscar worthy acting? Nope. It's for sex. Plain and simple. These Vivid compilations serve that purpose. They present you with a DVD that cuts all the bull and gets down to business. 

Now, as far as Tia goes...i'm a BIG fan of hers. Well, maybe I shouldn't say FAN...by definition that'd be the wrong word. How 'bout...admirer. While I don't racially discriminate when it comes to females, I find i'm more attracted to Latin females. Tia, according to a bio that I found, is of Latin/Greek descent. So you know what that means...

I really can't judge her on her acting ability [not that you'd necessarily CARE about that], but I can tell you that i've YET to see a scene of hers where it seems she's just "going through the motions". That's why in the following review, i'll rarely comment on her performance. You know that old saying: "If you can't say anything nice...don't say anything at all"? I believe the opposite. If I think she's giving a bad performance, hormones aside, i'll let ya know.


Scene from "2nd Coming": Tia Bella, Jill Kelly
Acts Included: Oral.
This was a HOT scene. It begins with Tia trying on a sexy pink outfit for Jill. It doesn't stay on too long though and before we know it, Tia's laying back on the ottoman spread open and having her pussy devoured by Jill. After Tia returns the favor, a transparent double headed dildo is brought out for some action. It doesn't stay too long and is shortly replaced by a black anal intruder. Tia uses it to work Jill's ass over quite a bit. As this is happening, the scene cuts to another couple on a balcony observing the action. After a few "ariel" shots of our couple, the action which ends with Tia laying on Jill. The camera pans up to the couple that was watching, now being shoo-ed away by a dwarf who's nodding at Jill. 

I'm not one for girl/girl scenes. As long as the entire disc isn't filled with them, I don't necessarily mind 'em. But I don't seek 'em out. This one, however, brought the heat. In spades. In fact, this clip made me want to check out the entire flick.


Scene from "Camera Shy": Tia Bella & Nick East
Acts Included: Oral. Vaginal.
Positions: Doggystyle. Missionary.
Condoms: Yep.
This scene begins with Tia dressed as an angel, complete with wings, sitting on a chair, while Nick, dressed as the devil, is getting some first hand experience, between Tia's legs, on what Heaven must feel like. Now, i'm not sure if this is how the scene plays out in the full feature, but there's no foreplay whatsoever. We go from Nick on his knees, looking like he's ready to sample some of Tia, to Nick on the chair at full attention with Tia mounting him. Oh well. Tia's excellent reverse cowgirl takes up the majority of the scene, until they switch places and Nick spreads Tia wide open as he does his best to make Tia's gates...pearly. Eventually he does which brings this scene to its climax.

Even though this scene could've been longer and had a bit more variety as far as positions were concerned, ANY opportunity to watch Tia fuck and get fucked is one that should not be missed. The lingerie she was wearing enhanced that hotness.

Scene from "Fresh": Tia Bella, Barett Moore & Nick East
Acts Included: Oral. Vaginal.
Positions: Doggystyle. Reverse Cowgirl.
Condoms: Yep.
After a brief exchange with Tia, a topless Barrett pulls Nick into the bedroom. As Nick is kissing/licking Barett's body, she motions to Tia to join them. Tia adjusts her top and looks away, feigning disinterest.  After Nick throws Barett onto the bed, Tia jumps off and moves over to a nearby chair. While Barett is giving Nick a blowjob, i'm guessing the excitement gets to Tia since her since her breasts come out, her dress goes up and she starts rubbing on her pussy. She does this for the entire scene as Barett & Nick get busy on the bed.  They start off with some doggystyle followed by some deep reverse cowgirl. The scene ends with some more doggystyle until Nick shoots on Barett's ass. 

The sex was pretty good and watching Tia play with herself as she was watching the action was even hotter.


Scene from "Gettin' Lucky": Tia Bella, Johnnie Black & Marc Wallace
Acts Included: Oral. Vaginal. Anal.
Positions: Doggystyle. Spoon.
Condoms: Yep.
The scene begins with Johnnie and Marc undressing Tia. Once she's naked, Johnnie dives between her legs to lick Tia's neatly trimmed pussy. After a while, Marc decides to take Johnnie's spot and resume where she left off, while Johnnie gets a quick licking from Tia. Eventually, Mark strips down to let both ladies take turns giving their lips, and tongues, a good workout. He bends Tia over for some doggystyle and at times it look like the action might shift to anal, but he's just teasing her. He saves the anal action for Johnnie, spooning her while Tia observes. This short scene ends with a weak shot from Marc. For shame...

This scene could've been much better. Unfortunately, while I was researching another feature I was reviewing, I discovered that Mr. Wallace had/has HIV. Yes, I know it was a while back, but finding any CREDIBLE porn information/websites, is harder than getting a date with a porn star. Anyways, this knowledge tainted my viewing of this scene. And while this isn't my first time watching it, real life crept in and made it that less enjoyable for me. Perhaps this scene and next is the reason Tia's retired?


Scene from "the Look": Tia Bella & Marc Wallace
Acts Included: Oral. Vaginal.
Positions: Doggystyle. Reverse Cowgirl.
Condoms: Yep.
This scene begins, as every scene should, with Tia on her knees giving Marc, who's lookin' kinda old, a blowjob. A couple minutes later, he strips her down and returns the favor with a lengthy licking. After spending a fair amount of time between her thighs, Marc finally sits back so Tia can ride him. When she's done, she stands up and Marc hits her from behind until he shoots on her thigh. 

When I first reviewed this scene, I felt it was a good scene. But, as with the previous scene, the knowledge of Marc's heath status tainted it for me. I guess it's true what they say...ignorance is bliss.



Scene from "Party Favors": Tia Bella, Dee, Corinne Williams, Wildcat & Vince Vouyer
Acts Included: Oral.
Positions: Missionary. Reverse Cowgirl. Doggystyle.
Condoms: Yep.
While Dee, Corinne and Cheyenne are rubbing their bodies together, Tia strips down and lets Vince give her pussy a good licking. After cutting to the three ladies licking and rubbing, we see that Tia is now giving Vince a blowjob. There's some penetration of both the missionary and doggy variety while Dee, Corinne & Cheyenne stay in a corner for the entire scene. After riding Vince, the scene ends with Tia laying back on an ottoman as Vince shoots while standing over her. 

Tia looked real good wearing her black stocking and pumps, and I definitely like the positions she found herself in. However, I was disappointed that there was no M/F action with Corinne or Dee. Corinne has a nice body, though, i'm unsure if it's siliconly enhanced, and it's a shame we couldn't see it in action.


Scene from "Tia Bella: Extreme Close Up #3": Tia Bella & AJ
Acts Included: Oral.
Positions: Doggystyle. Missionary.
Condoms: Nope.
As you can see in the screencap, Tia's sitting on a bar wearing a sexy black and red number. AJ, whom either OWNS Vivid, or is blackmailing someone to assure a place in Tia's movies, undresses her and begins licking her pussy. After a blowjob, Tia gets on top for some cowgirl on the bar. We see her giving AJ a blowjob, before ending the scene by stroking him til he shoots.

This scene was awfully short for some reason. However, since my all-time favorite actor, AJ, was in it, this was probably for the best.



Scene from "Where the Boys Aren't 10": Tia Bella, Heather Hunter, Kobe Tai & Leslie Glass
Acts Included: Oral.
Four hot ladies. Stripping their clothes off and playing, licking, and caressing each other. This should be a good thing, no? 

Well, it is. However, the rap music has to go. And, though this is your standard carpet munching stuff, all four of the girls looked like they were enjoying themselves. AND each other.


Scene from "Gettin' Lucky": Tia Bella & James Bonn
Acts Included: Oral. Vaginal.
Positions: Doggystyle. Missionary.
Condoms: Yep.
We start this scene with a pretty good blowjob by Tia in a black thong. After a few minutes of this, James quickly does away with the thong and briefly returns the favor. She spreads her legs open for some missionary, while she uses her finger to provide some anal stimulation. There's some doggystyle until he shoots on her chest. 

Believe it or not, I'm not conserving my words. The scene was literally as short as it reads. Good, but short.


Scene from "Tia Bella: Extreme Close Up #3": Tia Bella, Leanni Lei & Jessica Darlin'
Acts Included: Oral.
We join the scene as all three girls are in bed. Leanni is working Tia over with a dildo while Jessica's bring up the rear. Well, Leanni's rear, that is. The configuration changes and now Leanni is working over Jessica with the dildo while Tia's letting Jessica's tongue get a workout. I was just about to type "Yet another typical girl/girl scene" when the scene cuts and Jessica starts riding a STRAP ON that Tia's wearing. Then Leanni gets to ride...until it abruptly ends.

It's a shame that once Tia put on the strap-on the scene ended. I know I would've enjoyed it as much as Leanni and Jessica seemed to.


Bonus Scene from "the Fetish Underground": Rebecca Love & Betty Sue
Bonus Scene from "Nailed": Sharon Kane & Slim Shady
Bonus Scene from "Bawdy & Soul": Chloe, Lene & Peter North
Behind the Scenes of "Nailed"

Concluding Words: I'm done. I guess i'm just expecting too much from Vivid. To be honest, I have no ideal the "official" number of FULL features that Tia did for them during her time in the business, but i'm beginning to believe that i've seen all of her sex scenes. Or, at least, that's what Vivid would have me believe thanks to the repetitiveness on these compilations. As I stated in the preface, Tia Bella is one of my all-time favorite actresses. Besides her beauty, she generates major heat in practically every scene she's in. However, the configuration of scenes on this disc wasn't as strong as previous compilations. It's a shame Vivid doesn't take a cue from Private and put together a set similar to Best of the Best: 1997-2002 that was devoted to Tia.

The scenes on this disc were pretty good, therefore this one squeaks by with rent it.
