Cast: Bridgette Kerkove, Byron Long, Sledge Hammer, Ashley Long, Julian St. Jox, Sophia, Venus, Box, Monty, Crystal Ray, Darren James
Length: 105.5 minutes
Date of Production: 7/21/2003
Extra's: The extras were rather minimal here with the best of the batch being a 5.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. It was among the weakest BTS feature I've seen in a long time, serving more of a compilation teaser than anything else, but the main point of interest was the movie. The other extras were the standard trailers, photogallery, pop shot compilation, and spam. There was also a cardboard protective sleeve for the DVD case but as much as I like them, they really aren't great extras.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as expected from a Metro release. The colors were decent and the grain minimal as the lighting seemed well handled this time. There were some compression artifacts and pattern noise but I thought the overall quality of the picture was good. The audio was presented in the standard 2.0 stereo English with minimal separation and limited dynamic range but you could hear what was said and the music was turned off after the tease footage so it didn't get in the way much.

Body of Review: In the last five years, there have been a lot of advances in the amount of anal sex taking place in gonzo porn. No longer limited to a handful of companies, anal sex has become mainstream porn and the few companies that shy away from it seem to lose market share with every new release on the market. In short, people want to see more anal sex and the companies are very willing to supply the market with what it demands. Those who enjoy anal sex probably know that
href=http://www.xcritic.com/reviews/read.php?ID=11694>Bridgette Kerkove has done more to advance this type of action than anyone in front of the camera in the last twenty years. She's been known to test her own limits by jamming chopsticks in her ass and anything else that normally shouldn't be stuck where the sun don't shine, often to the point where her peers recognize her talents as extraordinary. Now that she directs porn as well as stars in it, her proclivity for anal is being pushed even further as she gets gals to dream the impossible dream of doing more than the law allows in some states. With that in mind, her latest flick is If It Ain't Black…Take It Back; a movie that has a host of cute white gals taking on some of porn's biggest black studs. If this sounds interesting to you, read the following breakdown of scenes by cast and action:
Scene One: Bridgette, one of the gals that popularized circus act anal sex a few years back, started off the show by wearing the same pink outfit she wore on the front DVD cover. The standard formula she applies to all her movies, tease, oral, straight, and anal before a facial with ATM (ass to mouth), was also applied here. Her partners for the scene were Byron and Sledge, a couple of black men that have the type of rhythm needed to keep it real on the set. Her oral skills were not fully displayed here but she took to the anal like a fish to water and gave a decently warm performance full of her moans and orders for them to shove cock up her ass. While not the best scene of the movie, she did manage to prove she still has what it takes to turn men on and deliver the goods. Fans of DP's and ATM will want to take note that few gals can handle them as well as Bridgette, especially with the kind of heat and energy she gave here.
Scene Two: Ashley, the lean and leggy blonde British gal that seemed to take over as reigning anal queen a year or two ago, was up next. I liked her black leather outfit and fishnets as much as Bridgette's, something employed in most of her scenes these days. Julian was the lucky guy and if the scene was even half as good as her usual work, I knew I'd be cleaning my shorts (or ceiling) in no time. As it was, the oral was better than the first scene, and the anal wasn't bad either. In terms of heat and chemistry, the scene was far from Ashley's best since there didn't seem to be any spark between these two. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the interracial aspect of the scene because she's blazed through many such scenes in the past but this one lacked the kind of output I've come to associate with her and that dragged it down for me more than I cared to admit.
Scene Three: Sophia, a cutie that probably ranked as the youngest gal of the movie, wore a blue bikini with her fishnet stockings and she smoked a cigarette as she gave her tease performance. If you like your women a little bit trashy, you'll love this gal but I think Byron didn't find her as appealing as I did in the scene. She took him in her mouth and did all the other sex acts you'd expect of her but the anal was weak and the ATM not very interesting either. There were times when I thought a fill in stunt cock would be needed since Byron was having wood problems but he sort of finished off okay. Bridgette lent her some assistance but it remained a filler scene for me.
Scene Four: Venus, a very attractive gal that stood a bit taller than Bridgette as the two pranced around the grounds together, was up next, wearing a see thru corset and the same type of fetish wear the others donned here. Her partners were Monty and Box with each getting some decent oral before taking turns banging the gal's tight box and ass. The anal here was exceptionally hot and the ATM action as good as you'll find but the DP was pretty lame by my way of reckoning. The heat and chemistry were nearly off the scale and this was a great scene for all its minor limitations. I can't say that I recall a scene with her in it that was this good so fans rejoice that their holy grail of anal sex has been found!
Scene Five: Crystal, an ultra lean blonde with the lamest outfit of the show, played with Bridgette as the two puffed away on their smokes. Like the other tease scenes, the music was terrible and the dancing out of a bad dream but Bridgette's little leather Nazi stripper outfit was pretty hot. I've always thought Crystal's face was really hot but her lean body never tripped my trigger, if you catch my drift. She took on Darren and Julian in a scene that made me take a step back and rethink my nonchalance about her previous scenes. The gal knew how to screw and be screwed, with the viewer as the lucky winner here. Seeing Darren reminded me of the industry wide HIV scare earlier this year but his skills were put to the test with his two partners. The anal was smoking hot and the rest of the sex was always good so you can chalk this one up as a winner too.
Summary: I'm going to rate this DVD as Recommended based on the attractive cast, solid formula, and adherence to the concept of interracial sex. There was a lot of solid action here and each gal took it in her ass so you needn't be worried about truth in advertising either. If her work continues to improve, there may yet come a time when folks forget about Bridgette's days in front of the camera (albeit, an unlikely time) and just think of her as a talented director but she still has some rough edges to hone and I'll be watching to see her newest flicks (and improvements).
