Cast: Lia, Katie Kox, Billy Glide, James Deen, Mason Moore, Jerry, MacKenzee Pierce, Mr. Marcus, Mr. Pete
Length: 200:24 minutes
Dates of Production: 3/19/2010 to 3/21/2010
Extras: For newcomers to the company line, the bonus scene from Lia’s First Time will be the best extra, Lia and Taylor Vixen enjoying a 15:55 minute long lesbian tryst together as described below. There was also a 15:54 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Mike Marovich, the ladies overdoing it a bit but the production still offering some fun. Then came the trailers, and the photogallery, some spam included as is normal.
Audio/Video Quality: Lia’s Life was presented in a 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480 resolution for this DVD. The flick was shot in 1080i/60 high definition awhile back, though presented in the SD format in a short feature playing off his skills best. The lighting was well handled and this added to the pleasure of watching the gals in play as the lengthy scenes gave them enough freedom to explore their sexuality. The composition of the camera angles was almost always optimal this time, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible, the minor grain not bothering me nearly as much as it could have in less capable hands. The fleshtones were usually accurate too and the DVD mastering was well done (the bitrate hovering around 4.0 Mbps), even if the lighting was off at times (the company watermark will be bothersome to some out there but only some given its location). At times there appeared to be multiple cameras used on some scenes, the equipment not matched up so the edits were more readily apparent, a soft haze included at times that I could not quite explain. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 256 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. The aural qualities of the movie appeared to offer very limited separation and dynamic range, the vocals easily heard in most cases and mixed in with the ambient noises fairly well.

Lia with James Deen
Body of Review: B. Skow is currently one of my favorite directors, his body of work over at Vivid Entertainment among the best they have ever seen. His latest title is a showcase effort starring former contract cutie Lia 19 called Lia’s Life, a look at a day in her working life when she was at Vivid. While I had my doubts that this would be my favorite work of theirs, Lia was in three scenes, two of them with men and another solo outing. Lia is attractive enough to pull off one of these flicks but given her immense body of work on her website, I’m not sure if even a lengthy movie like this will float my boat but I gave it a try. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Mason Moore (the gusher) with Jerry
Scene One: Lia, wearing some loose lingerie and a thong wedging up her crotch, was up first in a solo masturbation scene; discussing with Skow about how quickly she can get ready for a scene. She took off her clothing and he was impressed at her figure, her nipples able to hold up her bra by the straps. Much of the scene took place in the shower where the showerhead was used to get her off, Lia pressing against the glass door to look sweet!
MacKenzee Pierce with Mr. Marcus
Scene Two: Katie Kox, a busty blond wearing some neon pink bikini undies and fishnet stockings, was up next in bed with Billy Glide, Lia loving the lady’s curves as much as I did. Katie was frisky and playful, removing her top and panties to suck him off passionately. While his pecker was far too large for her to easily handle orally, she tried her best and that was enough for me, the lady actively riding his rod vaginally in several positions before he rimmed her. This continued for awhile and he eventually beat out a round of genetic juice to her chest and face, Katie rubbing it all over herself before the camera cut away (for Lia to describe the fun and Shylar to pick her up).
Scene Three: Lia, rehearsing her lines in a school skit with James Deen, had some fun about how lame the dialogue was on the makeshift set. She had a loose yellow blouse on with a matching bra and some white booty shorts, none of them lasting long once James set his mind to removing them. He was all over her orally and she appreciated his talented tongue, spreading her legs as far as she possibly could to grant him greater access. He then started banging her passive body, pushing her limits sexually as he bent her over the desk. They continued and she gave some head as well, their chemistry possibly greater than her ability to display it in her actions, the gal taking a moment to jerk him off before they went back to vaginally boning. At the end of the scene, he unleashed a large dose of population pudding on her chest by his own hand, Lia showing some appreciation for it but not swallowing.
Scene Four: Mason Moore, a curvy brunette wearing blue and white bikini undies, was up next as she masturbated for cameraman Mike Maravich and producer Shylar, Mike called away by his wife (who was delivering a baby). She continued in a seductive manner, spreading her labia and fingering herself silly until Jerry came along to assist her. He snacked on her crack and she encouraged him, the gal saying all the right things before aggressively slobbing his knob in POV. Mason’s wonderful oral aside, it took her awhile to readily accommodate his pecker vaginally, Jerry already to push her further with a finger up her ass. This soon led to her becoming active at riding, the gal giving the crew the pissing treatment (look at the screen capture) but again, the second half was better than the first by a wide margin. With a lot of additional oral, it ended on a high note as he jerked off into her mouth from a pile driver position, Mason lapping up his spunk with a smile.
Scene Five: MacKenzee Pierce, a lean brunette with huge implants, was up next as she lounged around, waiting for the always late Mr. Marcus. She went topless and rubbed her pink panties, pushing them aside to show her labia. She talked a good game but until Marcus joined her, she was not at her best. Lia and Pete started going at it too, their tryst recorded largely afterwards as described below. So, MacKenzee knelt down before Marcus and worked his big black cock into her mouth, the gal only able to handle a few inches of it but doing so with some hand to gland action. They moved to the couch and continued the oral until the various vaginal positions kicked in, Marcus doing the lion’s share of the work but MacKenzee trying to push back as best she could. Once she warmed up, she was a lot better though, her penetrative efforts and oral both showing an upgrade until the final bout of boning left her back on her knees and Marcus beating off a load of semen to her mouth for swallowing. It looked like at least two cameras were used to capture the action, neither set at quite the same settings, but it redeemed itself all the same.
Scene Six: Lia, up last in a short black dress, was up next with Mr. Pete, her rock hard nipples impressing him as much as the juices flowing from her solo masturbation efforts. He spanked her cute ass as she went head down, ass up, some fingering leading to her taking charge with a hand assisted hummer. It was a noble effort on her part and led to an impossibly short vaginal penetration portion, Lia so tight that he couldn’t control himself as he lost his load all over her sweet ass. This was not the true end of the scene though, Lia continuing to work his cock in some active positions, Pete soon rubbing out another salute to her fine young body all over her crotch.
Bonus Scene: Lia’s First Time: Lia and Taylor Vixen, both wearing what looked like bridesmaid dresses, then finished the movie up with some solo action punctuated by their getting together for some lesbian frolicking. Unlike the lipstick lesbian action most such shows provide, I got the impression that all of the scenes had women into other women, just some a bit more star struck than others if you catch my drift. In terms of enjoyable pairings though, I found this one to be my favorite of the movie due to the way the ladies showed such chemistry and attention to one another, the caresses and kisses dominating the early parts of the show before they started going down on each other. Surprisingly, Lia was the only one getting the large pink vibrator shoved up her pussy in doggy style, giving me the impression that more footage must exist out there somewhere.
Summary: Lia’s Life by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment might not have lived up to the previous three volumes in the “Life” series but it wasn’t bad either, meriting a rating of Recommended based not only on the appeal of Lia but the rest of the cast as well, Mason Moore, Katie Kox, and MacKenzee Pierce all contributing to the replay value and strokability. In short, Lia’s Life might have been a scripted day in her life at Vivid but it was still full of the kind of fun factor Vivid has been applying in copious quantities in increasing amounts of late, presumably helping keep them competitive in tough economic times so check it out.
