A River Runs Through Her: The Very Best of Cytherea is a Hustler two-hour compilation DVD centering on the theme of female ejaculation queen Cytherea. Female ejaculation was (still is?) known as "squirting", but in Cytherea's case, "gushing" would be a more appropriate word to use. The disc opens with about 20 seconds of unskippable legal screens and the Hustler Video logo, but since it's kept to a minimum, I won't complain about it. The program identifies all stars and the originating movies for the scenes. There are multiple chapter marks placed in each scene.

Slide Show (2:06) The slideshow consists of 18 still photos, which are all shown full screen (some are pillarboxed or letterboxed to fit the screen). A chapter mark is placed at the start of every photo, easily allowing you to skip to the next photo, or go back to the previous ones. There is no text or watermarks over the photos, so you can view them all unobstructed. The photos are randomly placed, and it would appear that the first bunch are sourced from photo slides, while the rest are just still video frames.
Sex Talk (1:14) Two phone sex commercials, one for Paisley and one for Lindsey.
Hustler.com A menu screen with the website addresses listed on it.
Hustler Hollywood (1:02) A commercial for the store in Hollywood, presented in 4:3 fullscreen.
How much you like this compilation depends upon how much you like Cytherea and/or women who gush/squirt. I think Cytherea is adorable, especally in Scene #2 where she's wearing glasses with long flannel pink pajamas, nicely opened to show her breasts. Although I liked gushing/squirting more when not every woman in porn could do it, Cytherea always put on quite a show, which is even more impressive since she's so petite. So the compilation is a winner for me going in. Every scene is good, though I find Scenes #2, #3, and #7 to be the standouts. If I liked lesbian scenes more, I would add Scene #4 and the Bonus Scene to that list (to be fair, I found these lesbian scenes more enjoyable than most). The poor lighting in Scene #5 kills it for me. The worst scenes in this compilation are Scenes #1 and #6, primarily because Cytherea doesn't gush in them, but also because I just don't like some of the participants.
Out of the eight scenes (including the bonus), Cytherea doesn't gush in three of them, which is nearly half the disc. Since that's what she's most well known for, that doesn't help make this more than just a Recommended from me.
