Cast: Samara Sampson, Jerry, Rubi Costa, Sascha, Mixi, Alex Gonz, Cali LaKai, James Deen, Shelbie Layne
Length: 217:03 minutes (again, not the advertised “4 Big New Hours!”)
Dates of Production: 9/13/2010, 12/7/2010, 1/29/2009, 5/31/2010, 7/20/2010
Extras: The only real extras were the photogallery, pop shot recap, 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 #40 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment. The visuals and audio were both decent, the amount of lighting and limited camera movement helping capture the ladies at their best. The editing did not seem intrusive most of the time and I could hear the vocals just fine, some whispered dirty talk helping a few scenes to stand out from the pack. In all, the technical qualities of the production were largely the same as ever which is a good thing in most ways, the bulk of footage shot competently.
Body of Review: B. Skow had been the lead director at Vivid Entertainment until seeking greener pastures recently. His approach to porn has been appreciated and I hope to check out some of his post-Vivid work soon. The latest release of his under the Vivid banner is called Brand New Faces #40, this time lacking a specific focus other than ladies that liked to fuck. This has been the only newcomer series hitting the double digits that I find consistently worth picking up, the website not updated nearly as much over the last year or two as it had been previously. The ladies this time included Samara Sampson, Cali Lakai, Rubi Costa, Shelbie Layne, and “Mixi”. 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: Samara Sampson, the tattooed brunette featured on the front cover, was up first in a contemporary living room with Jerry. She seemed calm with the whole scenario and showed off her body, masturbated, and then did oral and vaginal with the dude. She was an active rider and appeared to be moderately skilled at slobbing a knob, his gash gobbling more focused but the gal showing some promise even if she did not make an impact in the industry. It ended when she milked his balls dry of a substantial amount of genetic juice, the man glazing her boobs and the gal tasting his baby batter though it was cute when she tried to impress the director by going back down on the mope. The company website described the scene like this: “Samara is a big-titted hottie that loves sucking and fucking rock hard cock. She immediately shoves every inch of Jerry’ beef as far down her throat as possible. Samara is soo excited riding his rod she spreads her juice all over his rigid shaft. Jerry tastes her honey before savagely plowing her pink and blasting his cream all over her sweet, waiting face.” 9/13/2010
Scene Two: Rubi Costa, a Las Vegas stripper (at Crazy Horse) with an average body, was up next with wild looking Sascha after she showed her all natural body. Rubi had a better ass than rack, her stripping done quickly and the solo portion on the slight side. She had a shaven snatch and allowed Sascha to play with her first, his fingers massaging her to get her juices flowing before she gave him a mild hummer. He ate her pussy and was soon plowing it vaginally, Rubi on the passive side for riding him in most positions but her eye contact and energy levels pretty good. The ending nut of population pudding was tossed off onto her face, the semen flying all about as she caught her breath. The website suggested this of the gal: “Rubi is 24 and comes to us from Sin City, Nevada. This Puerto Rican sexpot has not been in a relationship for four months so she’s auditioning hard rods for her shaved cookie. Here, a tatted Sascha rubs her slit and nibbles on tits before she devours his dick. Her pussy is hammered in every position possible unlike anything her ex ever did. Sascha blasts her face and her breathless “OMG”, shows how much she loved it.” 12/7/2010
Scene Three: Mixi, a perky Latina with some decent tits, was up next with Alex Gonz as she followed the formula closely. She hit it off with Skow quickly and described her night before at the infamous Circle Bar in Las Vegas, the tease providing a nice look at her boobs and ass. She had a lot of tattoos and wanted to enjoy herself, masturbating her shaven snatch on the couch before going next door to the bedroom set for some oral. Alex gobbled her gash and she slurped his pecker readily, his fingers probing her pussy until they vaginally fucked pretty heatedly, then using his finger on her precious pucker (no other anal though). Mixi, or “Mexi” as the back cover stated, was a fuck bunny in training at this point, plenty of room to grow but hardly at her peak potential even if most men would have given her a poke or two. There was taste testing and a short titty fuck, the ending coming in the form of a vaginal cream pie where her snatch oozed the spunk deposited inside it as she masturbated. The website said this of the matter: “Mixi is from Pittsburgh and part Irish and Native American. She's already into the porn flow by fucking two cocks the night before our shoot. She wants to do every kind of fucking on camera and here Alex jabs her box while fingering her tight ass. Mixi gets so wet that she begs for harder slams. She goes after Alex's tool like her fave lollipop but what she does at the end makes her a keeper.” 1/29/2009
Scene Four: Cali LaKai, a lean gal from Denver with pretty eyes, was up next as she nervously proceeded through the formula with the director encouraging her onward. She was on a light brown couch in an orange and white striped dress as she laughed a lot, her ass looking very sexy when she bent over the table to sign her contract. The 24 year old lady exaggerated her facial and body expressions to cope with her nervousness, her pussy among the pinkest I’ve seen inside the labia. The solo action led to her moving to another room with a tan couch, James Deen all over her as he diddled her pussy handily. She looked younger due to the clean nature of her pubes but also appeared to know her way around a pecker too, James warming her up before she proved to have sucked a few dicks in her time. He played with her ass a little and she sucked his balls, the gal a bundle of energy as she rode him and took his rougher sex tricks in stride. The various positions of fucking led to her getting a glazing wad of splooge on her face, the gal aggressively cleaning him off orally and swallowing his seed. The website described it like this: “Cali La Kai is a 24 year-old hottie with the ultimate 32D rack and craves high-energy fucking. She's never done anal in her life but James Deen fingered her browneye while hammering her pink. She showed off no gag reflex by taking all of his beef to his balls. She loved ass slapping and nipple biting as well as pleading for an even harder banging. Her eagerness to drink down his jizz proves we found a winner!” 5/31/2010
Scene Five: Shelbie Layne, an attractive brunette claiming to be 20 years old, was up last as she did Jerry, the gal coming from England but staying in Utah of all places, her arm tattoo on the weird side (on her forearm). She admitted to being into sexual experimentation, her pretty eyes and shapely figure just the type to appeal to the director. She shook her ass and showed some nice sized natural boobs, walking outside on the deck to give some finely lit outdoor footage. The lean gal otherwise followed the formula and came across as outgoing, ending up kissing Jerry on the large white couch as he tasted her all over to start their pairing. Both gave head well enough and there appeared to be some sparks of chemistry, a few positions of active riding ending up with him spraying her entire head to crotch length with ball batter. The website described it like this: “Hella cute 20 year-old Shelbie has never cum before! Fingers, toys and cock haven’t worked. Her bubble butt, smooth slit and tasty 36Cs get her anything she wants. Jerry works her snatch so hard and deep she coats his rod with juice. Her 5’2 bod isn’t used to pro fucking but she still moans loud in ecstasy. She begs him to explode and he sprays seed on her perfect frame. Did she cum? You be the judge!” 7/20/2010
Summary: Brand New Faces #40 by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment earned a rating of Recommended given the strength of performance by most of the ladies. This was a markedly better selection of scenes than the last volume in the series offered, my appreciation that someone is listening being duly noted. Samara Sampson, Cali Lakai, Rubi Costa, Shelbie Layne, and “Mixi all gave some strokable moments but there were times when a few of them needed better partners or some added motivation, the overall quality pretty solid for a bunch of newcomers. In short, Brand New Faces #40 was not exactly a new high level for the series but the ladies gave up some fun filled performances worth checking out, the merits of the series premise having long been established so check it out.
