Body of Review: One of the ideas behind a porn company having a contract performer is that it gives fans a place to easily seek out the star in question. After all, even with the internet, how many times has one of us missed out on a favorite performer in a scene when they worked with a crappy company, one that went out of business, or simply one that doesn't meet whatever standards we set? Vivid, having long ago banked it's future on contract stars, hired a real cutie awhile back. Her name was/is Briana Banks. In her latest compilation for Vivid, And the Winner Is... Briana Banks, the young blonde is shown in some of her best scenes (at least some of the best she's done for Vivid). Rather than buy a lot of marginal releases with her in perhaps a scene or two, this compilation will give you the chance to get 10 scenes of Briana, some quite good, for the price of a single feature. Fans take note, she does anal in a couple scenes here but most of them focus on oral and straight, all with condoms. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by title, director and cast:
Scene One: All There Is: D-David Stanley: Briana and Mark played doctor together in a medical office. She had great eye contact as she savored his penis during oral. The straight sex was a bit anti-climatic by comparison but still pretty good.
Bankable: D-Chi Chi LaRue:
Briana, looking hot as ever, and Bobby, had sex on a
couch. While it included condoms (like every scene here), it also went
beyond the oral and vaginal with some warm anal action.
Scene Three: Chatterbox: D-Cleo Edwards: Briana and Bobby had another round of sex, this time in a shorter scene having oral and anal. Good scene.
Scene Four: Heartbreaker: D-Paul Thomas: Briana and Eva got their chance to shine this time. Mostly oral with a bit of straight sex on a couch. Pretty warm. For more of this warm scene check out the behind the scenes featurette included in the extras section.
Scene Five: Shy: D-Chi Chi LaRue: Dasha and Briana had an erotic milk bath together here. It was energetic and fun with the two ladies seemingly having a good time.
Scene Six: Unprotected Sex: D-Cleo Edwards: Briana, looking a bit like Britney Spears, did the lovely Ann in their dorm room. It wasn't bad except for the low level of lighting in a dark room.
Scene Seven: Unprotected Sex: D-Cleo Edwards: Briana, having slipped away to a biker bar, did Cheyne after getting drunk. Her implants didn't look right here (and she had a big red mark on one of her breasts) but the sex was pretty good.
Scene Eight: Upper Class: D-Cleo Edwards: Briana and Chandler, both attractive blondes, used toys and tongues to get each other off. Lots of fun for me. Yum!
Scene Nine: Vixen: D-Paul Thomas: Briana and Anton had a scene in a living room. Is it just me or does this guy look gay? Pass.
Scene Ten: Where The Boys Aren't #15: D-Chi Chi LaRue: This is what I said the first time I saw it: Briana, one of Vivid's sweeter looking gals, got done up by butch looking Taylor and Cheyenne in a public bathroom. Pretty warm stuff. Yum! I just wish Vivid didn't use this one so often in it's compilations.
Summary: All in all, a good compilation to check out with even the unrelated bonus scenes looking pretty warm in most cases. If you're a fan of Briana, I'll suggest this as Highly Recommended. Lots of variety within the confines of Vivid's focus.
