Positions Room, Vivid Girl Extras, Bonus Room, More Adult Fun, Vivid Previews, The Web, Set-Up
There's a nice selection of extras on this disc, so let's dive right in. The Positions Room allows you to see one act from all five scenes in Taya's Tales. The choices are pussy eating, blow job, missionary, cowgirl, doggie and cum shot. It's a good feature if your in the mood to, say, only see cock gobbling. This kind of feature definitely extends the viewing life of this disc. For more scenes though, check out Vivid Girl Extras. Here, there are five additional scenes, three of which feature Taya.
With the bonus scenes in that section, the Bonus Room has two short galleries of Taya and Savanna Samson, and a brief look behind the scenes of Taya's Tales. There's also a multi-angle option to get more hardcore during the flick. You have to turn this option on though, in the set-up menu. The rest of the extras are of the promo type.
The video has that look that only porno seems to manage, with soft image and harsh lighting. It must have something to do with the shadows. The action is all clearly seen though, so there's nothing to complain about there. The audio is good as well, though the music might be a bit too heavy in the mix for some, as it competes with the sounds of sex.
Body of Review:
I love it when a porno sticks to a theme or has a thread that runs through it, and this disc certainly qualifies. Taya, in one of the most laughable performances I've seen in recent memory, attempts to introduce the five scenes on this disc, reading from her big book. They really should have got a girl who can speak clearly and well instead. But what do I know? I'll tell you what I know...the scenes on this DVD:
-- sponsored by --
Oral (M/F), Vaginal, Hand Job
Missionary, Reverse Cowgirl
A Puerto Rican princess find her knight in shining underpants in this scene. I'm not a big fan of Dee's face, as she reminds me of Tori Spelling in a way, but she's certainly good when there's a cock in her mouth. The sex doesn't get very creative here, but Dee's very into it, and the two-fisted technique she uses to get her man off is a nice touch.
Oral (F/M), Vaginal
Taya takes an acting turn in this take on the old Farmer's Daughter story. The sex here is quick and limited, with just two positions and some oral. Taya's got a great body, with small, but perky breasts, but she doesn't shw much enthusiasm in this scene. It's surprisingly simple considering LaRue directed.
Oral (M/F), Rimming, Vaginal, Anal
Standing Missionary, Reverse Cowgirl, Spoons, Side Entry, Missionary
It's every man's fantasy, as a coin thrown into a fountain delivers Savanna. If only. Her blowjobs are second to none, and she truly gets to deliver, taking it from above on a staircase. The sex here is wild and active, with the stairs involved in the positioning. A well-shot rimjob by Savanna, some anal and a cumshot right on her pussy put this scene well ahead of the rest of this disc. Plus, it's Savanna. How can you go wrong?
Rimming, Hand Job, Oral (M/F), Vaginal, Anal, Facial
This one's a bit odd, as it has a deinite fetish feel, even starting out with a man being spanked and rimmed in a dungeon. A whip comes into play, used to tie up the guy's twig and berries, so that Dru can blow him from behind. The tables are turned though, and Dru becomes the submissive, getting fucked hard and spanked with a leash. It's a well-done scene that should appeal to those with an interest in S&M games.
Oral (F/M), Rimming, Vaginal, Hand Job
Missionary, Cowgirl, Reverse Cowgirl
Taya's back for more, this time in her role as host. Still laying with her big book, she gets a visitor who eats her like she's a buffet. Once again, she shows she knows how to suck dick, as well as fuck it. The ending's a bit of a letdown though, as she finishes him by hand, which takes too much time and kills the energy of the scene.
This kind of theme really should have been supported by some feature-style acting so as to actually give us fables with porn, like the package promises. Though, the package also says one of the scenes is "Pretty in Pink" and I didn't see that one. So I guess some advertising lies. I'm dismayed, but I'll get over it. The scenes here are good, but nothing you would watch over and over. This one is a rental only.
