Initial Expectations: Ashlyn has been one of my favorite starlets for a heck of a long time, and this series has been very well done. I’m going in here with high expectations.
Initial Reaction: It’s one of the best comps I’ve ever seen!
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who’s a fan of Ashlyn or just curious about her
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants something on the nastier side of Ashlyn
Audio /Video Quality: The audio varies a bit throughout the feature, but the interview comes across crystal clear. The movies themselves come across feeling as good as what they originally sounded to be, but since some of the features are from the early to mid-nineties, they don’t always look as good as they might now. Some of the video has some slight grain, which is to be expected since Ashlyn’s been around a long time. That said, it looks very good when one considers the age of the feature and the scenes it contains. There’s only a few shadows, and very few of those interfere with the picture.
Music: As usual with most compilations, the style and balance of the music isn’t consistent throughout the feature. The style is pretty consistent with your typical porn music, but the balance varies from being way too loud to being nicely balanced.
Menus: The menus are pretty simple. The main menu has a clip from one of the scenes and VCA’s standard format. The chapter menu is nicely done and lists each scene by the name of the feature it comes from and one of Ashlyn’s partners in each scene.
The Feature: VCA’s Deep Inside series gives the typical compilation feature a new twist by focusing the compilation on one specific star, in this case, Ashlyn Gere. She talks about things such as how she got started, her sexuality both on and off screen, love and sex, and the common size question. Ashlyn’s interview section is a little different from others in this series as she mostly talks about the questions she’s received from fans she’s met during her time in the industry. As Ashlyn is interviewed, scenes are brought in to illustrate some of what she’s talking about.
Ashlyn starts things off with Selena Steele in a scene from The Last Resort. Maid Selena gives Ashlyn a little tip on how to wear her new french bikini, which is one of the few good things to come out of France, before diving between Ashlyn’s legs. They’re joined by telephone repairman Tom Byron, after he gives up on fixing the unplugged phone while they go at it on the bed next to him. The girls quickly team up on Tom’s cock and balls to welcome him before Ashlyn lets Tom fuck her from behind while Selena guides them and kisses her way around Tom’s back. The girls trade pole positions so Selena can go for a cowgirl ride, and Ashlyn finishes things up by jerking Tom onto Selena’s ass before they share the last few drops. It’s a great scene to open things with. There’s great chemistry, nice energy, and more than a little bit of a fun spirit.
Ashlyn’s solo scene from Slow Burn appears next. Ashlyn Gere starts things off masturbating in front of an artistic mirror. She’s in the middle of doing the deed with herself using a vibrator and dressed in some nice black lingerie complete with stockings and pumps as the scene starts. Ashlyn puts some great energy into working herself over, and sucks and tit-fucks her vibe as well as thrusting it into her snatch. It’s an interesting scene, and the mirror adds a slightly artistic feel to the scene rather than just being a straight ahead masturbation scene.
Ashlyn’s scene with Rocco Siffredi from Chameleons: Not the Sequel is featured next. Rocco changes from a woman into a man in the bathroom to get it on with Ashlyn. They kiss passionately while Ashlyn strokes Rocco’s meat before she drops down to suck his cock and balls and give him a good titty-fucking. Ashlyn goes to the toilet for support as Rocco nails her from behind. Surprisingly, they only fuck in the one scene before Ashlyn drops down to suck Rocco until he pops on her tits, but the scene is intense enough that I couldn’t care less about the lack of positions. Rocco and Ashlyn really look to be into each other, and the chemistry, energy, and intensity make this a scene that would have converted me into an instant fan of Ashlyn if I hadn’t been one before.
Ashlyn takes on Mark “Dick-O-Death” Wallice, Buck Adams, T. T. Boy, and Tom Chapman, all of whom have on shower caps, dust masks, and tightie-whities while on a hospital examination table in a scene from the Dark Brothers’ Deep Inside Centerfold Girls next. She sucks and fucks the guys with ease, and even gets a little action for her feet. The guys finish things up coming all over her, including in her shoe so she can lick it out. It’s a pretty typical Dark Brothers scene, and is both unique and extremely hot and energetic.
Things change gears a little for Michael Ninn’s Decadence with Ashlyn and Victoria Paris. Ashlyn and Victoria start things out with a slow, romantic, and artistically shot bubble bath. The girls take their time taking turns slowly working each other over with their tongue and fingers before they’re joined by Mark Davis. Ashlyn takes the first ride on Mark’s cock, while Victoria rides his tongue and plays with her. She also lets Mark fuck her from behind while standing up and pile-driving Victoria with a dildo and eating her pussy as Victoria lays in front of her. Finally Mark pops between the two girls’ open mouths and lets them kiss it back and forth. It’s an extremely hot scene that shows Michael Ninn’s style extremely well. You can tell it’s a Ninn scene right from the start, and it effortlessly blends Ninn’s artistic style with extremely hot sex. This is a winner of a scene that makes me think I’m going to have to check out the original movie soon!
Ashlyn hooks up with Joey Silvera in a scene from Malibu Spice for the penultimate scene. Both Ashlyn and Joey start out looking a bit like a geek wearing glasses as she gives Joey a tour of the health club he’s just joined. She leaves him at the locker room and is interrupted when he comes to her office where she’s working her Mac (which I guess shows how old this scene is). They get down to the good stuff pretty quick, stripping each other down a bit with Ashlyn kissing her way down to suck and stroke Joey’s joystick. Joey returns Ashlyn’s oral favors and fucks her before she moves around for a bit of doggie and reverse cowgirl. Ashlyn finally takes Joey’s joy juice on her bush before they kiss and cuddle a bit. It’s a fairly short scene, but has some nice chemistry, energy, and heat.
Finally, Ashlyn brings couple Brooke Hunter and Dale DaBone and bouncer Steven St. Croix back to her hotel room for her fantasy scene. After Ashlyn warms Brooke up a bit, she has Brooke suck Steven’s cock while she gives Dale a little oral attention. Ashlyn makes sure everybody “suits up” before fucking. Ashlyn lets Dale fuck her missionary style, while Brooke does the same with Steven. They trade partners for a little cowgirl action and keep mixing things up so that Brooke can have a little of both Dale and Steven. Ashlyn also takes her turn between the guys before finishing things taking come at each end. It’s a very hot scene and has great chemistry and a nice sense of fun. The scene really seems to reflect the personality you see in the interview with Ashlyn, and makes it a perfect scene to end things with.
Deep Inside Ashlyn Gere is a must have for every fan of Ashlyn! The interview feels very natural and gives you a great feel for Ashlyn as a person. The sex is every bit as good, if not better, with every scene being a great winner! I’ve been a fan of Ashlyn for quite a while, and she’s put out a ton of scenes, so it’s great to see that whoever selected scenes for this feature picked some of Ashlyn’s best rather than just grabbing randomly. Deep Inside Ashlyn Gere comes across as a very natural look at Ashlyn and some of her best scenes, and is worth checking out by her fans and anybody who’s at all interested in her.

Overall: Currently, most VCA DVDs can be found online for between $18 and $25 with many stores offering them for around $20. If you’re a fan of Ashlyn, this is going to be money well spent, and if you don’t know who she is, you better head out to rent this DVD! There isn’t a bad scene here, or even one that falls as low as “good”. The technical aspects show a little age in a couple scenes, but look like they were treated well. The biggest problem here is that the extras, which offers basically nothing.
Note to VCA: A more current scene or two would have been great as a bonus here, and would probably have gained you a five-star rating here. It really seems weird to not have them here as the cover reflects Ashlyn’s very recent work with VCA while the scenes are all older.
