“Pornstar Inside-Her: Carmen Luvana” is an overall good compilation from Adam & Eve featuring—as one might surmise from the title—former contract star, Carmen Luvana. Carmen is at the center of all sixteen sequences on this disc (plus the one extra one), and the viewer is left with little doubt that she’s one of the most attractive women to ever grace the stage that is the adult film industry—muy caliente, papi! Along these lines—and generally-speaking—her various sex scenes here are hot, too. Of course, there are some thrown in that don’t work as well as the others, and—because much of the footage is dated—there are some palpable signs of age (i.e. resolution and screen quality issues in places, black bars all around the screen in places, etc.). Had a couple of segments been left out and the footage been more modernly presented (likely an impossibility), this one would have been very strong indeed. Still, what is put forth is more than enough to warrant a look, especially for fans of Ms. Luvana.
In terms of the sex, a quick run-down will suffice. Carmen gets it on with Austyn Moore in Scene One (“Carmen and Austyn”). This one takes place in an open mansion on / around a spiral staircase. The ladies use fingers, tongues, vibrators, and dildos on one another in this okay-to-good sequence. One thing that really works to its disadvantage is that the music drowns out any noise from the women themselves. Scene Two (“The Sixth Reflection”) couples Carmen with Julian in a blowjob scene in a room with a throne-like chair. He finishes off this okay-to-good sequence with a pop-shot to Carmen’s face, which she then follows up with some oral cock clean-off. Scene Three (“The Dinner Party 3”) picks up the pace a bit with a Carmen / Billy Glyde boy-girl encounter in a kitchen. The couple makes good use of the countertop prior to this one closing out with a cum-shot to Carmen’s right ass-cheek. This one is good-to-very-good in quality. In Scene Four (“Signature Series 12”), it’s Carmen and Mario Rossi getting it on in a living room with blue, flower-themed sofas and furniture. This one falls in the good-to-very-good range, as well, and is capped off with a load deposited on Carmen’s tummy and chest. She does some oral cock clean-off here, too.
In Scene Five (“Racer X”), business really picks up, as Carmen and Steven St. Croix have a steamy romp on / around a bright-green, pimped-out sports car. This one is excellent—even though the pop-shot falls mostly to the ground instead of on Carmen. Scene Six (“Flesh Gallery”) couples Carmen with Manuel Ferrara in a long, brick-walled room with framed photos. The against-the-wall action here is not to be missed, and the pair also sates their basest desires by fucking on the floor and a red chair. To close this one out, Carmen jerks Manuel to a pop on her face and mouth, and she then follows it all up with some oral cock clean-off. This is some amazing stuff! In Scene Seven (“The More the Merrier”), Carmen takes on Randy Spears and Mark Davis. Carmen plays the role of a hoochie in this one, and Randy and Mark play the parts of a bar owner and his customer, respectively. Of course the two guys get lucky, and what results is an energetic three-way that features some ferocious blowjob / hand-job work by Carmen on Randy and a variety of sexy oral / vaginal combos (including some throating and face-fucking during some of the oral). Pop-shots to the feet (one apiece) finish off this excellent endeavor. Following this is another exceptional segment (Scene Eight; “Flight 69”). This time around, it’s Carmen and Jerry. Carmen is a stewardess who has brought home a gentleman for some fun in a room with a sofa and a backlit blue wall. An all-vaginal tryst ensues, and—most interestingly—culminates in an internal cum-shot in a condom, the cum from which Carmen then squeezes (partially) onto her tongue—hot!
In Scene Nine (“Tailgunners”), Evan Stone plays the part of an American spy in WW2 who has been captured by Nazis, Lexi Lamour and Katja Kassin. The two ladies provide some erotic double-blowjob work on Evan before Carmen—playing the part of an Argentinean assassin—makes her entrance. What follows is a dramatic, multi-lingual scene and an excellent all-vaginal romp that focuses primarily on Carmen and closes out with a pop-shot to her tits, followed up by some oral cock clean-off—excellent stuff! Scene Ten (“O: The Power of Submission”) puts Carmen at the center of a triangle consisting of Dragon Lily, Tommy Gunn, and Todd Driller. The action here takes place in an open room with a white sofa and furniture, and there are three female spectators looking in on the festivities from the background. In the foreground, Carmen is taken by Todd, Dragon, and Tommy on a large, white, padded leather cushion…and everyone takes a turn fucking her, including Dragon with a strap-on. This very good segment is capped off by both of the gentlemen popping on Carmen’s breasts, as Dragon holds them up. Carmen also provides some oral cock clean-off for the guys. In Scene Eleven (“A Slice of Pie”), Carmen gets it on with Herschel Savage in their bedroom. This very good vaginal sequence is finished off with a cum-shot to her left ass-cheek. Carmen kicks things off cleaning Brad Hardy’s room while he’s in the shower in Scene Twelve (“Carmen Inked”). Wearing a very short French maid’s outfit sans panties, it’s fairly clear what Carmen’s in for when a nude Brad finishes up with his ablutions and happens upon her. A steamy vaginal tryst featuring sexy blowjob / hand-job work from Carmen follows and then closes with a pop-shot to her breasts—exceptional!
In Scene Thirteen (“American Heroes”), Johnny Castle plays the role of a hunky firefighter who arrives just in time to save (and fuck, of course) Carmen from a conflagration. This is another excellent, all-vaginal encounter that ends with a cum-shot on Carmen’s breasts. Scene Fourteen (“Potty Mouth”) couples Carmen with Marco Banderas (billed as “Marco Duato”) in a Spanish-language tryst that occurs on a white sofa in front of a stark, bright background. There is some very sexy foreplay / lead-in material here…not to mention the oral work on Carmen’s part…and the sex that ensues is blistering. Another pop on the breasts, along with some oral cock clean-off and a bit of cummy kissing, finishes this one off. Scene Fifteen (“Rawhide”) pairs up Carmen and Kaylani Lei, both of whom start off attired in lingerie reminiscent of 19th century fashion. This one is a sensual girl / girl encounter that involves tongues, fingers, and crotch-grinding and ultimately falls into the okay-to-good category in terms of heat. In Scene Sixteen (“Adult Stars at Home 4”), Carmen has an all-girl three-way with Alexandra Silk and Nikita Denise in a bedroom. The ladies are all sporting black-leather-themed lingerie, and the action includes some very nice oral combos, as well as Nikita working Carmen over with a vibrator and Nikita and Alexandra sharing a double-headed dildo, as Carmen uses a vibrator on both of them. Overall, this is very-good-to-excellent material.
In terms of bonuses, there’s a trailer that plays upon inserting the disc, and there’s plenty of BTS and interview material interspersed between the scenes themselves. Further, there’s a Carmen boy/boy/girl “Bonus Scene” (from “Carmen’s Dirty Secrets”), a “Previews” option (that plays through some trailers), a “Web Info” choice (that plays through some website / product ads), a “More Adult Fun” selection (that plays through some phone sex ads and the like), and a “Gallery” (which consists of a slideshow of “pretty-girl” shots and stills from the production).
All in all, this is a good production that—had the scenes been captured and put together in a more modern time—could have been excellent. That said, the dated technology (mainly) and a few of the choices do keep this one from fully living up to what it could have been. But…for those looking for a lot of Carmen Luvana…it’s still worth looking into. (Just don’t expect high production values…)
