Extra's: The first extra was merely a 2:20 minute scene with Savanna Samson on a desk wearing glasses, getting vaginally porked by Jerry. There was no foreplay, no blowjob, no pop shot; just a couple of minutes of screwing with a hug at the end. This was followed by Savanna Samson giving a 2:37 minute long interview about the movie. She made some good points but it was a bit generic too in that she really didn't have much time to elaborate on her points. That was followed by a slideshow, a trailer for the movie itself, and some credits.

Audio/Video Quality: Any Way You Want Me was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color by director Danny Decker for Vivid/Savanna Samson Productions. The movie looked kind of washed out and the limited options were not truly "21 scenes" as advertised, the minimalist approach taken to make this virtual sex show a bit discomforting in terms of limited replay value. The lighting was flat in all three scenarios but there were some compression artifacts (the bitrate was all over the charts with much of it hovering in the lower 3 Mbps range but going higher and lower at times for those keeping track). The fleshtones were accurate and I'd give credit to the director for making Savanna look good but truth be told, she always looks good so giving him credit for her genetics seems a bit out of place. The audio was presented in a 2.0 LPCM with a bitrate of 1536 Kbps (it did not sound as good as a decently made Dolby Digital offering but audio is typically the last consideration for porn so this doesn't say much). The music was largely a factor during the three striptease sessions more than anything else with limited dynamic range and separation.
Body of Review: Savanna Samson is something of a major success story in porn, parlaying a role in a Rocco Siffredi movie as a fan wanting to get into porn, into a contract with Vivid that has granted her international acclaim for some of her roles. She now shows the first release of her own production company, Savanna Samson Productions, in the form of Any Way You Want Me, a virtual sex offering taking a low-tech route to showcase the company owner for fans. Unlike release releases like Virtual Vivid Girl Sunny Leone, InTERActive, Interactive Sex With Jenna Haze, or Virtual Sex With Jana Cova where companies have pushed the limits of technology and used fan input to provide a wealth of features, extras, and/or options for fans to appreciate, this one was an early effort for fans of the woman that really did not get a lot of support from the looks of it. Here are the three basic scenarios offered up:
The Desperate Housewife; The first option you have is for Savanna to be a horny housewife. She doesn't really say much outside of some moans but each selection gives a minute or so (with some far shorter) that includes Strip, Touch (she masturbates), Toys (she masturbates with toys), Footsie to BJ (she does foot fetish stuff with Sascha) and Anal (a few seconds of anal with Chris Charming). There is also an Orgasm selection on the lower right hand corner that allows her to complete a selection, be it by herself or with the corresponding partner of the previously selected sex act.
The Superstar Stripper; The choices here were for the black lingerie clad hotty to perform a short striptease, another Touch selection, a Toyshow, and Ass Play (all on the upper left hand corner). Then there were the partnered sex acts with Spooning (with Scott Nails), Reverse Cowgirl, and Doggie; each leading to the Orgasm selection.
The Vice President; Acting like a stern gal using an in charge attitude, Savanna was less subservient here as she gave the orders, however minimal. The solo acts were Striptease, Fingers, Dildo, and Oral with the Blowjob, Cowgirl, Anal, and Doggie having her working with the men.
What struck me as missing where the naughty/nice options other shows have, that none of the sex acts lasts very long (most clocking in at under a minute each), and how so many of the clips seemed to be taken from single scenes that were greatly abbreviated. I like this lady and I get the impression that she won't be around performing much longer (perhaps being offered the MILF role in the recent Debbie Does Dallas Again was the final straw or maybe it was the smashing success of her first wine release from her winery in upstate New York) so projects like this that get her personal input are probably far better suited for her biggest fans but I was expecting a lot more; making this kind of light given the minimal extras and lack of footage (Empire lists it as having 73 minutes but that seemed a lot longer than this one appeared to be).
Summary: Any Way You Want Me by director Danny Decker to showcase Savanna Samson in the first joint production of Vivid/Savanna Samson Productions was at best a Rent It for me and I'm a big fan of the classy lady. The technical values were a bit shaky at times but for me, the value factor was the biggest issue with the disc. The extras were impossibly light, the amount of sex she had in the three main scenarios a lot less than expected, and as much as I wanted to sing the many praises of Savanna in regard to Any Way You Want Me, I found myself wondering if there was even a half hour of material here. If you're looking for the latest technological wonder from Q. Roberts, the director of two of the best Virtual Sex titles coming out in the last few years; you'll have to look elsewhere. As far as showcasing hotty Savanna Samson, several of the Vivid titles with her in the lead of late have been better choices too so until she or Vivid really make the decision to put some effort into a similar project, this will remain as a title best viewed as a potential add on to one of her other movies.
