Extras: The only real extras were the photogallery and some trailers, some spam and “positions menu” material included for those that care (a “special offer” link included too). I hated the forced commercials though, skipping them with my remote as needed.
Audio/Video Quality: Brand New Faces #37 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment. 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 and lighting were almost always optimal, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible, the director editing the raw footage in a hands-off manner (which worked for me). The fleshtones were accurate too and the DVD mastering was well done though the company watermark will be bothersome to some out there. 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 some separation and increased dynamic range, the vocals easily heard and mixed in with the ambient noises.
Body of Review: B. Skow has been the lead director at Vivid Entertainment. The result had been better showcasing of performers in lengthier scenes that provide more fuck for the buck than anything else in the company’s history, the company dispensing with contracts stars (for the most part) not altering this approach. The decision to branch out into web-to-DVD titles has also allowed the company to utilize his talents for a specialty series centering on all newcomers, not a single one having been in porn prior to the production date listed (the company even providing a written guarantee to that effect that few have questioned, those being proven wrong in their accusations). The latest volume of the series is Brand New Faces #37, a variety of young performers starring in their first roles in porn. This has been the only newcomer series hitting the double digits that I find consistently worth picking up, the show providing almost three and a half hours of original material for your viewing pleasure (not the advertised four hours). The ladies this time included Susie Stevens, Victoria White, Bella Beyle, and Stephanie Sage. Here’s a very brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Stephanie Sage, a perky brunette with a nice ass, was up first with Alex Gonz. She followed the generic formula of being interviewed on a couch, showing off her body, masturbating and then hooking up with Alex. She signed the certificate stating she had not made any professional porn in the past, Skow showing how much he was into her. The Floridian gal had a shaven snatch but unlike previous scenes, the edit to her sex was abrupt, the two already in a 69 before some modestly active vaginal riding and oral by both of them led to the facial he tossed off to her open mouth, the genetic juice apparently swallowed. The company website described the scene like this: “Stephanie's trim body, long legs and cute face are a killer trifecta making any stroker nut hard. She's from Florida and has waitressed at Hooters while going to school. Alex makes her pussy nonstop wet throughout causing at least two strong orgasms. Stephanie's eyes roll back to her head constantly as her body is under a severe fuck attack. Right after he blasts her face she greedily sucks and strokes out every last drop like it's candy.” 8/13/2008
Scene Two: Victoria White, a sexy brown haired gal that has been in scores of titles since starting in porn, was up next with Jerry. Her pretty eyes and lean but curvy body showed a lot of potential, her boobs bigger than average and her shapely ass best viewed in doggy or bent over. She was also shaven and appeared a bit nervous even though she denied it to Skow, her blowjob proving she was no stranger to inhaling a pecker aggressively. Jerry reciprocated by eating her pussy and then vaginally plowing her, some ass slapping and repeated taste testing between positions resulting in a wealth of splooge coating her face and some post coital head. The website suggested this of the gal: “Victoria is a 21-year-old esthetician with a boyfriend that doesn't even know she's sucking and fucking her first on-screen dick with us. She loves to get pounded from behind with her hair pulled and giving up total control. Her incredibly natural 36C rack bounces wildly while Jerry nails her in every position possible. She whines and moans and begs him to keep slamming. Check out how she loves to drain and drink jizz!” 3/12/2009
Scene Three: July, a brunette with lengthy hair, was up next with James Deen, her accent strong enough to denote a foreign heritage but she spoke English with enough ease that she did not appear of foreign descent. Her interview was in a modest looking house, the skinny 18 year old laughing a lot as she followed the direction of Skow using the formula. She also had a shaven pussy, her passive demeanor allowing James to take charge as he diddled her pussy through her sheer black panties. They kissed a bunch too, most of their oral coming after they had vaginally fucked, the gal providing the bulk of the foreplay here. It finished up when he beat off a round of population pudding all over her crotch, the gal letting him do most of the work. The website said this of the matter: “Eighteen year-old July just finished high school the day before our shoot! She's a mix of Brazilian, Native American and Latin so she'll do anything to please her man's cock. She loves foreplay and nearly cums when James Deen fingers then feeds on her sweet young slit. He shows no mercy by pumping her tight snatch so strong she cums at least twice. When his balls boil he unloads on her bald peach.” 6/8/2010
Scene Four: Susie Stevens, the thick blond featured on the front cover, was up next as she put her ample curvature to work with Mr. Pete. Her hair was actually a few colors and she had a few extra pounds around her waist but they looked good on her, no other scenes credited to her though the gal looked familiar enough to me that I wonder if she has been in porn under a different name. That said, she was also in the modest home (it looked like it was decorated by a teenage male) and bent over the bed to reveal her tramp stamp and tasty ass that was hungry enough to eat her black panties. Pete entered into the room to go down on her and she slobbed his knob, the guy doing most of the work during the vaginal penetration portion of the scene. She had some razor burn on her snatch but was otherwise clean, her puffy pussy easily able to handle his rod porking her rapidly. There was no chemistry here and the scene ended when she knelt to receive his glazing load of spunk in her mouth, some post coital head given as she examined his pecker (maybe she wanted to be a professional pecker checker). The website described it like this: “A spicy Latina with attitude, 20 year-old Susie craves cock and pussy with either a dick in her mouth or digits up a stripper hottie's slit. She loves rough fucking and Mr. Pete's non-stop hammering makes her cum loud and hard. She feasts on every inch of dick causing her to gag even more than she thought she would. When his balls boil over she gulps down and cleans him up like a slutty cutie should!” 6/25/2010
Scene Five: Bella Beyle, a cute gal I believe I’ve seen in a porno previously (it was likely shot after this one though), was up last as she was interviewed on an orange couch in her blue shirt and matching panties. Skow kept teasing her to the point of distraction (she broke out laughing more than once), the guy trying to catch her admitting to lying about her past before she worked with Jerry. She was shaven clean and seemed at ease with her sexuality, the solo portion of the tease ending up with her in the next room on a white couch sucking off Jerry. She was familiar enough with a cock in her mouth to raise some suspicion from me too, a 69 leading to some active vaginal riding. There was a lot of taste testing by her and even Jerry went back down on her before the facial of ball batter, the gal looking happy at the results of her work. The website said this of the scene: “Bella is a 21 year-old Brazilian born cutie with a firm naturally tanned bod begging to be nailed by her fuck buddy Jerry. She usually gets off on doggy and 69s but her juices were dripping down his tool during a scorching hot baloney pony ride. She eagerly cleaned off her girl jizz from his shaft while he rammed her fierce in differently sexy ways. After savoring her slit he pounds her pink before blasting her sweet face.” 12/14/2010
Summary: Brand New Faces #37 by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment earned a rating of Recommended or better given the quantity of footage on top of the quality of newcomer, the all natural breasts of the ladies a plus as far as I was concerned. For me at least, the idea that Skow could cultivate newcomers into providing such typically solid performances is indicative of his skill as a director so Brand New Faces #37 certainly earned a place in my collection, this time in spite of some advertising claims that proven untrue (the show was nowhere near as long as four hours). Only one of the ladies has made more than a passing attempt at a career in porn this time, Victoria White, but all were worthy of a look.
