Audio/Video Quality: Best of Girlvana was presented in the same anamorphic widescreen the scenes were shot in over the years by talented director Mike Quasar for Zero Tolerance. Given the years between some of the scenes, the technical matters varied a bit but the lighting and camera work was always well done, the editing polishing up the footage nicely in most cases though some scenes were clearly better than others. The aural components of the scenes were likewise similar, the monaural natural of the vocals and music not harming the end result for the most part even if it limited the sound somewhat compared to higher end products.

Body of Review: Mike Quasar has long been one of the most talented gonzo directors in porn, his wealth of titles for Zero Tolerance showcasing just how well a sexual web he can weave if given the right cast of lovely ladies. His latest title coming my way is the double disc Best of Girlvana, the compilation taking most scenes from volumes 2, 3, and 4 of the popular series of lesbian outings. The plethora of pussy and ass here was so varied that I’d rather you just read the scene descriptions for details, the lack of men and ball batter not harming the strokability factor at all for me as the ladies all seemed into each other. With over 6 hours of lesbian fuck for the buck, I knew I would like this one but I had seen all of it before you your mileage may vary. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Girlvana 4: Aubrey Addams, Karlie Montana, Tori Black, and Crissy Moon, were up last on the first disc, in a veritable lesbian orgy where the four where watched by some of their classmates by the admittedly silly placement of the lights used to illuminate the porn scene in the rumpus room (the pool table and couch providing the perfect location for any sexual trysts that might just happen spontaneously). Aubrey was the focal point of attention early on, her initiation into the group especially warm as she was made to lick Karlie and then the others. Aubrey was tiny compared to them and her round rump was delicious as the packs of hotties were still in their sexy lingerie. The Truth or Dare contest soon devolved into a Dare contest since "we're all going to lie anyway" and while no toys came into play, this one also seemed a naturally appealing bit of work thanks to the oral and caressing nature of the ladies, not forced to do anything they weren't into. I would have enjoyed seeing the background gals join in and a bit more enthusiastic passion deployed but like the previous scene, it was a pretty nice bit of work with serious replay value if you aren't into lesbian extreme queens putting on a show.

Scene Two: Girlvana 2: Katja Kassin, now sporting dark hair (kneeling on the front DVD cover near the middle), and contract hotty Courtney Cummz, were up as the first scene from the second disc that was advertised as being full of bad girls. The primary difference this time was that the gals used toys, seemed a bit more demanding of one another, and showed a lot more passion as they carried out the same scenarios established on the first disc (this scene mimicking scene one for example). I thought that this was a clever idea; allowing for fans of differing types of action to get what they want in the same set. I know I prefer to see the harder action of the bad gals going at it most of the time but the lighter touch of the initial four scenes was also a nice change of pace. Getting both dynamics in a single set allows a fan to have his cake and eat it too (or in this case, pie). The foot fetish angle was more thoroughly explored this time and the hot tub seemed to be the ideal place for the two to play once they were out of the store. There was slapping, spanking, and toys used to liven things up; this time lasting longer as the gals did a lot more. In any case, this was one fine scene with two of the most attractive, talented ladies of porn so whether you beg, borrow, or otherwise obtain a copy, make sure you check this one out repeatedly.

Scene Three: Girlvana 1: Angel Cassidy, Jenna Haze: Angel Cassidy, a slutty blond with pretty eyes, was up next with sexy Jenna Haze, the ladies getting busy in a bathroom stall after warming up on the dance floor (off camera). They spied each other and jumped into the stall, Jenna following her playmate as they aggressively pawed each other as their clothing was actively discarded. Jenna was much younger here than her more recent stuff (before retiring), the flexible lass spreading her leg as she positioned above the toilet to allow Cassidy plenty of room to go down on her. There was fingering and Jenna then propped her pal up on the sink counter, gobbling that gash and slapping the pussy as she playfully made Cassidy her own. Cassidy reciprocated and a large pink vibrator came out for penetrative play, the lack of genetic juice, spunk, splooge, or population pudding not harming the scene one bit.

Scene Four: Girlvana 4: Lisa Ann (the brunette sitting on the middle of the cover), playing the MILF teacher that used her position to coerce her students to have sex with her, was up next as she singled out sweet Ann Marie Rios to become her latest conquest. These two gals are really well suited to work together and Ann was surprisingly aggressive here even though Lisa was in charge the whole time, some spanking on the teacher's desk with a ruler providing extra stroke value as Ann topped from the bottom (a very reddened bottom by the time they were finished). The extensive titty play and passionate kissing was another step forward in the movie's dynamic, certainly better than the similar scene on the first disc as this pair proved to be into each other a whole lot more. Ann wanted Lisa as much as Lisa wanted Ann, the younger gal nearly managing to turn the tables on her mentor. There were no toys and the face sitting gave me chills, both gals giving as well as they received throughout the heated little romp.

Scene Five: Girlvana 2: Nikki Nievez and Jenna Presley were up last as they replayed the parents leaving for parts unknown scenario with the harder edge employed on the second disc. The spanking was immediate and the dirty talk off the charts though I could see why Jenna was on the cover and Nikki was not. In terms of passion and sexual energy, Nikki was the better of the two though, easily dominating her friend as they diddled, sucked, and tore into one another on the couch. If you believe in squirting, Nikki was the gal of the hour here, drenching Jenna's face with her ejaculate before the toys came out. Nikki was better at taking whatever came her way too so the pairing was one of the most unbalanced of the set but still a fine addition since it provided a nice change of pace in that sense.

Scene Six: Girlvana 3: Annette Schwarz, Abbey Brooks: The gimmick of the first disc (each volume in the series has the quirk) is that no toys were used so they had to take their time stretching out all the usual oral and caressing; succeeding very nicely as they made me forget what it was I liked about toy use. That led to an orgy scene where the ladies paired up into small groups, coming and going as they saw fit to satiate each other with the same emphasis on oral loving. They did use fingers and got slightly heated at times in the sense of poking and prodding; rimming and face sitting getting some attention along the way. Each separate segment of this first disc lent itself to the classic approach of lesbian sex though which was more about sensual delights than aggressive pushing of limits by the ladies. My biggest issue with this section was the concept of blonds though since a good number of the ladies were far from blond, even discounting the bleached blonds that many of us enjoy watching.

Scene Seven: Girlvana 4: Sasha Grey (first brunette sitting down on the cover's left side) and Anabelle Lee were up next having discussed the way things worked regarding the upcoming test. Sasha is renowned for her work with cock more than her intimate pairings with other women so I was curious to see how she would fare here as the ladies made out on the couch. Frankly, Annabelle brought little enthusiasm to the scene and it weakened how Sasha responded to her, neither lady going beyond the kind of mechanical fucking some might refer to as "gay for pay". They kissed, ate each other out, and pawed each other endlessly but Annabelle would look at the camera slyly (as if no one was watching her) and they appeared to just go through the motions too much for my tastes. Fans of toys might appreciate Sasha using a hot pink anal toy on Annabelle as the redhead rubbed her clitoris but when gals are not into the action, it shows so this was the weakest of the batch for both discs.

Scene Eight: Girlvana 2: Jenaveve Jolie, Sammie Rhodes, and Shyla Styles, were next up as they followed the plan from the third scene of the first disc rather well. It still was set up in the house turned into a strip club set with Shyla as the hardened stripper working over the others on the couch and then going home with them. I liked the mope squad and second stringers providing some level of action to make it appear more realistic but the emphasis was always on the primary characters of the scenario (and rightfully so). Jenaveve was the primary hotty of the scene to me; taking charge as she drilled and lead the other two into the harder action. The bedroom antics were such that the scene proved to be nearly equal to the Katja/Courtney scene in terms of dirty fun but the editing seemed slightly looser (almost freehand) this time to me and that altered the passion ever so slightly. Still, it was a great scene with huge stroke value to repeatedly enjoy.

Scene Nine: Girlvana 3: Puma Swede, Riley Evans: Puma Swede and Riley Evans were initially in bed together; each exploring what the other had to offer. Fans of foot fetish action will be overjoyed but as directed, they spent an incredible amount of time kissing seductively and feeling each other up. The gimmick of the first disc (each volume in the series has the quirk) is that no toys were used so they had to take their time stretching out all the usual oral and caressing; succeeding very nicely as they made me forget what it was I liked about toy use. That led to an orgy scene where the ladies paired up into small groups, coming and going as they saw fit to satiate each other with the same emphasis on oral loving. They did use fingers and got slightly heated at times in the sense of poking and prodding; rimming and face sitting getting some attention along the way. Each separate segment of this first disc lent itself to the classic approach of lesbian sex though which was more about sensual delights than aggressive pushing of limits by the ladies. My biggest issue with this section was the concept of blonds though since a good number of the ladies were far from blond, even discounting the bleached blonds that many of us enjoy watching.

Scene Ten: Girlvana 2: Charlie Laine and Carli Banks, the hotties seen on the front DVD cover (back row: third from the left and front row second from the left beside Penny Flame), were up next as they made out when the parents left the house to have some fun. Charlie was looking like the proverbial million bucks and Carli has never looked better so the way they took their time getting into one another was a sweet sight for sore eyes (and a sore cock for their fans). In any case, the general formula was followed where they spent a fair amount of time savoring the experience rather than rushing through it like they were on a deadline, with the panty shots and other glimpses of heaven adding to the visual delight of the scene. It was slightly shaded in the house to add some measure of texture to their act, working better than usual as Mike seemed to capture the essence of what they were looking for (great lesbian action by gals truly into it).

Scene Eleven: Girlvana 4: Alexis Texas (bent over on the right hand side of the cover), Renae "J-Ho" Cruz, and Aiden Starr were up last as they moved from the shower area to the locker room in an attempt to get off. Alexis was the new gal, much like Aubrey was in the first disc, but she was more up to the challenge of her rivals as she embraced their slightly rough treatment. Aiden was in charge of the scene most of the time, tossing larger Alexis about as Renae honed in to get some action on the periphery, the kissing, spanking, and fingering all providing a major upgrade from the previous scene. Especially heated was the face sitting by Alexis on Aiden but all the rimming added stroke value for me and each contributed to the fun that was displayed. This scene also had a number of uncredited ladies in the background, a few missed opportunities but a few of them thinking it was okay to look straight at the camera too. In all, it was a seriously warm way to end the movie and each of the gals earned some stroke value as far as I was concerned.

Scene Twelve: Girlvana 3: Francesca Le, Tory Lane, Mikayla, Franchezca Valentina, and Amber Rayne were next in several relatively discrete scenes that flowed together. The no toy zone restriction was no only lifted here but they were actively encouraged; giving a substantially wider range to the variety of what the ladies could do. In years past, this section was also considered the rough sex part of the series since the gals were given explicit instructions to let loose with their fantasies and what they wanted to do. There appeared to be a slight nod to getting performers that wanted to interact together their due here as well which livened things up and if it were a competition for replay and strokability; the brunettes would have won hands down just as fans of more sensual lesbian antics will prefer the blonde disc of the show. Francesca Le was the focal point this time and while a few years older than most of the others, she was also the most sexually aggressive (this could be argued in favor of Tory Lane getting the nod though; my points going to Ms. Le by a small margin). It was interesting to note that the oral was still plentiful (this is a lesbian outing after all) but heavy on anal toy use too. Also of note was lovely Stephanie Swift, back from retirement to give some appreciated experience to the action in the final scene; Francesca clearly grateful at getting to work with her. If you hate toys, stick with the first disc but those wanting the gals going especially crazy might want to start off with disc two to enjoy the various fluid pairings where the ladies mingled freely but never seemed to be locked into specific sex acts or with gals they weren’t happy with.

Scene Thirteen: Girlvana 3: Audrey Bitoni, Zoe Britton, Mikayla, and Francesca Le were next in several relatively discrete scenes that flowed together. The no toy zone restriction was not only lifted here but they were actively encouraged; giving a substantially wider range to the variety of what the ladies could do. In years past, this section was also considered the rough sex part of the series since the gals were given explicit instructions to let loose with their fantasies and what they wanted to do.

If you hate toys, stick with the first disc but those wanting the gals going especially crazy might want to start off with disc two to enjoy the various fluid pairings where the ladies mingled freely but never seemed to be locked into specific sex acts or with gals they weren’t happy with.

Scene Fourteen: Girlvana 2: Sativa Rose, Penny Flame, and Dee, were up next in a strip club full of losers; complete with pole, low lighting, and thumping music with many uncredited males and females making out and/or getting lap dances while the leads had some fun on the couch. Penny and Sativa were the aces this time but Dee was looking surprisingly fit given her age with the scenario moving to a more intimate setting before too long. Once in the residence, the trio of twats busied themselves with kisses, caresses, tastes and touches as they slowly undressed and moved over to the bed. Penny was initially a receiver but that didn't remain the case as Sativa warmed her up with some help from Dee. The positions were somewhat limited; more like each gal laying prone on the bed in turns, but I was captivated by the ladies as they slowly did each other to the brink and beyond.

Summary: Best of Girlvana by director Mike Quasar for Zero Tolerance had no new material but it did encapsulate some of the better scenes from the series past, the majority of footage coming from volumes 2, 3, and 4 with a single scene from the initial volume and nothing from the last volume (#5). As a result, this was a veritable who’s who of lesbian sex over the last seven years, the sheer quantity of lesbian action making this worthy of a Recommended rating, my preference for at least something new tossed in holding back a higher score. In short then, Best of Girlvana might not contain all the very best scenes from the first four volumes of the series but I’d be hard pressed to come up with any scenes missing that I would add without at least some research so give this one a look.
