Pick your pleasure, a photo gallery, and trailers are all you're going to find here for bonus features.


Being a compilation release the video and audio quality here varies slightly from scene to scene. The aspect ratio remains cropped at full screen and the picture is sometimes full of grain and compression artifacts. There are scenes that are crystal clear though and they stand out compared to the rest. The sound quality is all over the map as well. Some scenes have volume pitch issues and others are simply quieter than they should be. Overall the presentation here is about what you'd expect from a compilation release, but it's definitely not as consistent as one would hope. .

Body of Review:

It's Stravaganza time again! Digital Sin's popular compilation line is back with a new installment. This time around brunette's are under the subject of adoration and with the list of stars here you just know it's going to be good. Eva, Julia, Penny, Kristina, Tori, and Naomi are just a few of the names fans will instantly recognize. This is a strong release all around, but as is the standard with compilations your mileage may vary and there are differing qualities throughout the set. Even so, this is a solid release that should be in the collection of brunette lovers and fans of these girls. 

Scene 1:

Fresh Outta High School kicks things off with a scene featuring Franchezca Valentine and Mike Adriano. Franchezca is dressed up like a sexy bratty school girl while sitting at a desk. She starts thinking about cock and begins rubbing her clit. The scene transitionsto the rest of the dream sequence which has Franchezca and Mike making out on a leather sofa. They start going through the routine of some foreplay and after about eight minutes the fucking finally gets underway. They run the gamut of positions and the camera gets some fantastic shots as Franchezca takes it from behind in one particular moment. The sex here is slow and steady and the performers have some great chemistry, which makes this scene as sensual as it is naughty.

Scene 2:

Julia Bond is up next in a scene with Scott Nails from What an Ass!. This is a scene with a younger Julia, before she got the majority of her tattoos. She looks great and she's done up here to look like an innocent school girl. Well, as innocent as Julia can look anyway. She and Scott waste little time getting to each other's good parts, though the sex starts out kind of on the slow side. Regardless of that fact, the rest of this scene is pretty damned good with some great shots of Julia and all of her piercings. She legitimately seems to enjoy getting fucked by Scott and there's a great sense of pleasure throughout this scene. While she has come a long way since doing these earlier scenes, Julia is one of my favorite girls and the sex here exemplifies my reasons.

Scene 3:

What an Ass #7 offers up a scene with Kristina Rose and John Strong. Kristina is another one of the leading knock outs you're going to find on this release and her little poolside tease complete with bikini and baby oil stands out as one of the better ones here. She and John work up a sweat in this scene as they go from one position to the next. I will say that their sex is rather tame by comparison to other scenes I've seen with Kristina, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. There are some unusual positions here and some of them block the camera from good views of the action unfortunately. 

Scene 4:

Up next is another scene featuring a popular starlet in her youth. Eva Angelina appears in a scene from Naughty College Girls #31 with Benjamin Brat. This is a pre-implant Eva near the start of her career and you can tell right away that this girl's going to be a pro. She does some serious deep throating on Benjamin and gets onto all fours for some hard pounding doggy style. Even after that the sex continues to be rough and Benjamin frequently gets his hands around her throat. That's not exactly my thing, but Eva makes just about scene she's in great and this one is no exception. 

Scene 5:

Point Blank lends a scene with Carmen McCarthy and Tommy Gunn. This scene is entirely POV with Carmen doing one hell of a number on Tommy's cock. The scene starts out with a nice little tease, slips into some oral, and then moves straight to sex. The fucking is kind of awkward since Tommy is holding a camera the entire time and because of that he can't seem to give it his all. Things get shaky and Carmen is left to do most of the work, but the scene still looks great and features some fun sex.

Scene 6:

Naught College School Girls is back again with a scene from its 43rd installment with Rylie Rachelle and John Strong. For what it's worth she's dressed almost exactly like Franchezca was at the start of this release, but rather than being in a school setting Rylie is on a sofa playing with herself. The sex here is rather tame and though Rylie and John get into a variety of positions, there's never one where the two look comfortable in. Rylie often stares off camera as if she's uninterested and all around the scene is just kind of dry and dull. Kind of a sad way to close out the first disc here.

Scene 7:

Disc two with a wet scene from Super Naturals #2 featuring Penny Flame and Mr. Pete. It starts out in the shower with Penny getting nice and soaked while wearing a white t-shirt and panties. It's damn sexy and apparently Mr. Pete thinks so too since he walks in with a stiff cock. They fuck and fool around in the bathroom a little bit and eventually the sex moves on to the bedroom where Penny's ass is spanked while her pussy is fucked. The sex here is very good and there's a high level of energy as the performers seem to have a really nice connection. The scene is full of loads of kissing and touching and it speaks to the chemistry between them.

Scene 8:

Tori Black and John Strong appear in a scene from Fresh Outta High School #8. As you'd expect, Tori is dressed up as a school girl here and trust me when I tell you this is a look that works well for her. John wastes little time pulling up her skirt and getting to her pussy. Once again Tori is quite vocal and talks throughout the whole scene. This really isn't my thing, but she's still hot and the action is quite solid. Whether she's bent over a chair, on her knees, on her back, or riding John, Tori brings a great amount of energy. She is insatiable and the sex here is all the better because of it.

Scene 9:

It's Huge! #6 brings Renae Cruz and Ramon together as she attempts to tackle his massive cock. I always love watching girls attempt to look like they're enjoying Ramon's dick, and while some of them actually seem like they do, Renae does not. Her discomfort is written across her face and throughout this scene you'll see her wince and react like she's in pain. The sex is still pretty good regardless of that fact and Renae has a very nice look about her. 

Scene 10:

The next scene comes from Daughter I'd Like to Fuck and features Juicy Pearl and Anthony Rosano. Like the other scenes on this release this one has some nice and disappointing moments. I really enjoyed the connection between Pearl and Anthony and there's a great amount of energy here because of their performances. I will say that on her own Pearl doesn't really stand out. Sure she's hot and she's got a great body, but her mannerisms before the camera are rather dull. She just doesn't bring a lot of life to the scene, but that's balanced out by Anthony thankfully.

Scene 11:

Super tramp Naomi takes on Mr. Pete in a scene from Unleashed #7. As you'd expect, Naomi puts on a fantastic show here. She really loves the cock and every scene I have ever watched her in has proven that time and time again. I am kind of surprised that she didn't give up the anal, but even without that she and Mr. Pete have a great time together. The sheer raw action here made this one of the better scenes on this release and there's plenty to love about the sex here.

Scene 12:

Bringing this release to a close is a scene with Evie Delatosso and John Strong (he must really have a thing for brunettes) from Boobs-a-Plenty. Evil looks great sitting on a ratty looking sofa and the lingerie she's wearing accentuates her tits perfectly. They simply look amazing here. When she and John get down to it you just know that there's going to be all sorts of boob love. There's a copious amount of tit grabbing, fucking, and licking here, but aside from that the sex is pretty good. John gives it to Evie nice and hard and their positions are put on beautiful display for the camera. The scene closes appropriately with John cumming on Evie's tits.


Brunette-Stravaganza! is a decent entry into Digital Sin's compilation line, though I'm not sure it's first volume is quite the knock out they were hoping for. With the roster of girls available here, the scenes they picked weren't as good as they could have been. I've seen better from each of the performers. Because of that, this release is good, but not great. This isn't a "must run out and buy" kind of purchase, but rather lightly recommended.
