Non-sex role: Eli Cross
Length: 112:59 minutes
Date of Production: 11/15/2006
Extra's: There were some decent extras offered up this time, including my favorite of the bunch being the 21:52 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Kylie Ireland. There was some interview material, additional nudity, and a sense of playfulness amongst the performers and crew that served to establish the movie as being a bit rushed but fun for the cast and crew to make. It began with Eli confirming with Kayden that it was her "first movie", though she has reportedly been in other movies in the past and/or has done internet work. The name of the movie was changed and the others interjected their own commentary but Kylie did a good job of capturing a variety of interesting material (Penny's zany humor adding the most fun but "dorky" Julie giving some funny moments too). Most of you will appreciate the five unrelated bonus scenes (I outlined most of them below); $2 Bill starring Lanny Barby & Evan Stone; Wild Poppy: with Dasha and Dillion Day; The End Game, with Monique Alexander and Joel Lawrence; Lacie's Life starring Lacie Heart and James Deen; Groupie starring Tawny Roberts and Evan Stone; but they were mostly from older flicks and looked poorly mastered so your mileage may vary. There was surprisingly no biography for lovely Kayden Kross, but other standards like the two photogalleries, a second side for the DVD cover that showed four new titles released on DVD (instead of the less explicit version of the primary cover as the company has used for years), some spam (including a front commercial that could be skipped by remote control), and trailers to movies like Debbie Does Dallas Again, Dinner Party, Sexy Young Thing, Colors, and Illicit.
Audio/Video Quality: Kayden's First Time was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director Eli Cross for Vivid Entertainment. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience in porn runs a broad range inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as shot in HD in 1080i, though presented in the SD format. The lighting was reasonably well handled (with minor exceptions as in parts of the scenes), limiting the grain, video noise, and other distracting flaws seen all too often in porn these days; the movie shot in a stark manner to augment the feature aspects of the movie. The composition of the camera angles and lighting were not always optimal this time, the saturated look giving me the impression that some of the crew were new to each other. The fleshtones were not as accurate this time but the DVD mastering was well done, making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality, the bitrate hovering around 4 Mbps. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital (192 Kbps bitrate) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty generic. For some reason, the levels were lower than usual but aside from the added background noise from doing so, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent.

Body of Review: Eli Cross is one of the most well rounded directors in porn thanks to his background at AVN and as Kylie Ireland's main squeeze/production assistant. While he is now under contract elsewhere, he made a few titles for Vivid Entertainment that often provided some heated sex, albeit limited by the audience the company caters to. His latest release from the company is Kayden's First Time; the Vivid debut of beautiful Kayden Kross; their latest contract gal. I prefer experienced gals since their sexual energy tends to be so much more interesting but those of you wanting to see this former stripper turned performer get her shot, this is the place to go, a few pictures of her can be found at My 2006 Photo's if you look for them. The boxcover said it like this: "Kayden Kross was always a star. We just didn't know it. And then we found each other. We rushed her to the set. And she jumped on Manuel Ferrara like a seasoned pro. There's a word for that: hot. Vivid presents our brand new contract star, Kayden Kross, in her first movie ever. She will be major. But she'll be yours first." That said, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that Kayden was the only one using condoms:
Scene One: Penny Flame, one of the zaniest gals in porn that still manages to be a hotty, was up first in bed with muscular tattooed Derrick Pierce. There was no tease or build up but the dynamic she projected about being into the sex was very appealing as she slobbed his knob. He's not the most endowed man in porn but he does handle what he has fairly well, slowly rising through the ranks of the male porn pantheon as he gains valuable experience all over the place. The vaginal screw was energetic and she did some PTM as though into the taste more than a little; both of them showing some chemistry (real or imagined) together. They worked each other over nicely before he rubbed out a load of population pudding onto her face, ending a solid opening scene.
Scene Two: Kylie Ireland, the curvy cutie with a legion of fans built up over the years, was up next with stud of the year Manuel Ferrara on a large bed. This scene also lacked the introductory tease I like but the MILF aspect of this talented lady should make fans happy nonetheless; both giving excellent head along with a solid titty fuck as Kylie coaxed him verbally with dirty talk. She did some PTM and also sat on his lucky face, moving to a energetic anal screw that she seemed to really appreciate. With ATM and some fine ass cheek rippling, they continued in other positions before he rubbed out a load to her face. In all, this scene was better than the last even though I got the impression that they wanted to do a lot more to each other but had to cater to the company's wishes since the intended audience was not hardcore raincoaters.
Scene Three: Kayden Kross, the major hotty on the front cover, was up next with lucky Manuel Ferrara in the living room. They were on a mattress pad and she was anxious to do her first scene but didn't want to wear him out. He reassured her that he was a professional and would have no problems doing it all over again; nearly causing my bright green eyes to explode with envy (kidding!). The two did some oral on each other and Manuel was clearly the more skilled at it but she responded as though enjoying the action more than a little. Concentrating on the tip of his rod with her mouth as her hand held his shaft taunt; she showed that while inexperienced in porn, she was no stranger to a cock in her mouth, giving him a handjob in between the intermittent sucking. As expected for a newcomer, she was relatively passive in riding his cock; her best moves saved for when she was on top but even those showing little flair. This is common for newcomers and one of the reasons why "firsts" mean little to me outside of a red flag of warning. Still, given how physically attractive she was here, I would be lying if I said I couldn't let her coast for a movie or two before applying the stricter standards the other gals are held to, largely because her looks alone are so strokable. It ended with him jerking out a wad on her abdomen, ending the first scene she has done for Vivid.
Scene Four: Julie "I'm Easy" Knight, started off the next scene after telling Kayden to start her "no list now" and referencing a barely disguised male performer known mostly for how he likes to receive anal sex ("He's such an asshole, I think he must be gay", then saying how she used to throw up on him a lot until he wouldn't work with her any more). She went "to rinse out her butt" and ended up on the bed with the mighty Evan Stone & Marco Banderas/Duato. The no-tease zone was still in effect and the men worked her over front and back as she sucked their cocks and balls as they took turns tapping her cookie. She even had them sucking her toes before the anal; this being one of the extreme queens of modern porn. There was ATM and lots of dirty talk, the gal shining as she pushed the limits of acceptability for what was allowed (keep in mind that this is a gal that can take anything sent her way, including Belladonna's circus act sex) with a very active ride on their cocks. There was some no-condom DP footage before the men busted their nuts on her face, the scene showing a decent amount of passion.
Scene Five: Kimberly Kane, hanging in a metal cage in Kylie's dungeon, was up next as she hovered near beautiful Kayden Kross that was overly made up and on the plastic sheets below with Manuel Ferrara. He was eating out an appreciative Kayden before she gave a passing attempt at oral and a handjob; leading to another passive ride on her part. Her cookie looked red and inflamed, the real action beginning when Kimberly joined them. The lesbian face sitting and active riding by the formerly caged princess of alt-porn certainly livened things up, with Kayden getting a little more action before he let loose with his man juice on Kimberly's crotch. It was a large load and Kayden licked at it a bit, the scene ending the movie for the credits to roll.
Bonus Scene One: $2 Bill: "Lanny Barby, the hotty on the front DVD cover and well known Canadian beauty, was up first as she provided a private dance for the mighty Evan Stone inside a strip club's VIP room. Her teasing gyrations on the metal pool, the way she gave him those sultry looks and the generally seductive manner she employed all enhanced the preliminaries here before she orally attacked his penis with her loving mouth on the purple velour couch. That led him to snacking on her as she moaned in pleasure, eventually leading to her actively riding his shaft on top of him. If there's anything better than a beautiful gal bouncing on your cock as though it's the only thing in the world of importance, I'm unaware of it but once again Lanny showed the world that Vivid is a company changing with the times as this former gonzo gal displayed lots of passion in her scene. For those of you into anal, she was just as aggressive at taking him inside her ass though he sure couldn't last long when she did, blowing his load like nobody's business. She tried to save what could be salvaged in terms of doing a facial but it was a chemistry filled, heated scene nonetheless."
Bonus Scene Two: Groupie: "Tawny Roberts, the lean little blondie on the front DVD cover, was up next with the mighty Evan Stone on a red couch. She had a different outfit on than she wore on the cover, this time sporting a black top, tiny blue jean skirt and fishnet stockings (typically called "slutware"). The point of this scene was to establish Evan (as the lead singer of the group) as the kind of down and dirty type to win the bet. To do so, he went right to tapping her fine little pussy (albeit with a condom) before she whipped off the condom for some very warm head. She's grown more talented orally since I last saw her and this aspect of the scene was fun to watch but some of you will inevitably prefer the anal that came afterwards. The music was a partner to the vocals this time and it ended with a wad to her face as Evan sent her over to Ben (for the next scene) as he watched the two go at it."
Bonus Scene Three: Wild Poppy: Dasha and real life significant other Dillion had the next scene. They were on a picnic table outside during the afternoon and he took a lot of time going down on her before she returned the favor. Both of them have a lot of chemistry together and this scene was no exception as they screwed like rabbits on that table. He even got some of her ass as he opened her backdoor wide enough to slide his respectable sized penis inside it after which he blew his load on her face.
Bonus Scene Four: The End Game: Briana Banks, again looking like a million bucks, was up next in a bedroom tryst with Joel Lawrence. As part of the story, she got him drunk at the party and took advantage of his lustful libido in order to get some of that backdoor action she so craved but like the other scene she was in; the anal was almost anticlimactic compared to the passionate manner in which she pounced on his penis. From the spanking, the playful oral, and the verbal domination where she ordered him to fuck her, the scene showed me she was better than most of her previous work (if she could just get a decent make up job!). Both scenes with her here were probably the best I can think of in recent memory so fans should pick this one up pronto.
Summary: Kayden's First Time by director Eli Cross for Vivid Entertainment might not have been his best work of last year but as a fan of most of the ladies present, I enjoyed it more than a little bit. Kylie, Julie, and Penny have long been proven quantities in porn with the newcomer appeal of Kayden certainly adding in some fun too. The levels of fuck for the buck and strokability were high enough to warrant a rating of Recommended, the standard package of extras and minor technical issues not weakening it in any significant way. In short, Kayden's First Time wasn't a bad debut for Kayden's Vivid contract and if you like gals that haven't been in dozens of titles, she may be just what you need to launch your seed.
