Director: Randy West
The Abridged Version: If you are to believe the biography of Taylor St. Claire provided in the supplementary material on the DVD of Taylor St. Claire Exposed, then it would appear that she graced the hardcore scene only briefly from 1995 to 1996. Sadly, she mostly did solo scenes, never letting an erect cock get anywhere near her. Her Elizabeth Taylor-like face and Christy Canyon-like chest promised much, much more. In fact, many believed she was going to be the next big superstar of the industry, which made it all the more depressing when she ditched the scene and returned to modeling in 1996. The amazing thing about that reality is that if that were true then this compilation would only be one scene long. For those of you who don’t know, the biography used here is taken from www.excaliburfilms.com and in the transfer the geniuses at New Machine never bothered to update it. It is ridiculously out of date. Reading that and then researching and finding out that Ms. St. Claire in fact returned to the business and developed into one of the nastiest girls and anal queens working in her or in any era would be quite confusing. In the process, she gained me as arguably her biggest fan. I have chosen to highlight New Machine’s folly to illustrate a point. This is a compilation tape that reeks of disinterest. This is not so much a piece of pornography to be enjoyed, as it is a product to be sold for a quick profit. As such, I am not even going to write a new review for this product. I’ll show just as much interest as the assembly line workers at New Machine did and just go back to reviews I wrote years ago and cut and paste, though I feel as if I should actually edit down the selections to maybe 3 or 4 sentences. Why not? These scenes have all been chopped to hell too. Don’t worry. I’ll at least show you more consideration than New Machine did.
Scene 1:Taylor St. Claire (23 minutes)
From Up and Cummers 19 (1995): Spread out on Randy West’s bed, the young St. Claire is a vision of beauty. She is fresh-faced and giggly-like, with poofy mid-90s style hair. From her Liz Hurley-like face to her voluptuous chest to her long, statuesque legs, the barely out of her teens Taylor almost looks too gorgeous to be in porn. Regardless, we quickly learn that she's used her looks to her advantage, posing in numerous magazine layouts to make money to pay for college. She’s making her first ever adult film appearance here, as West somehow talked her into doing a solo, self-help session (it would be 4 years after this before she returned to porn and started doing guys). While she’s slowly stripping down, West lets out a classic moan when he first gets a gander at her absolutely perfect, all-natural 34Ds. After fucking the camera with her eyes a little, she lies back and puts a vibrator between her legs. After ten minutes of this, one cannot blame West for giving in and pulling out his member and jerking off madly. The scene ends as Taylor finally stops after several big O’s and West busts his nut all over the bed sheets, which actually seems to turn Taylor on. Must-have for any St. Claire fan. And it seems cruel to look back on this scene now and realize that back in 1995 people saw this thinking St. Claire would be the next Jenna Jameson, not able to know that this would be her only XXX film until late 1997. Now, she’s done it all, short of a gangbang, but to wait so long for it. Torture.
Scene 2:Taylor St. Claire w/Tony Tedeschi (28 minutes)
From Up and Cummers 81 (2000): Taylor is decked out in a black two piece combo with the midriff exposed, wearing a tad bit more make-up on than usual. She also has a hot black choker on. In the original scene, there was an interesting interview at the beginning in which Taylor revealed that she and her partner of choice for this, her first ever-anal sex on camera, were good friends and had engaged in some consensual fucking in their private life several times. There was quite a bit of joking in this, with one sequence seeing Taylor laugh as she blurts out that she thought Tony was gay to which he offers a humorous response. However, this gets all chopped off in the compilation and instead we begin with Tony’s dick all ready in her mouth. She gives him a nice blowjob, with some light ball sucking. Oddly, the scene hits a snag once the sex stars. He enters her pussy in doggy style on the bed with a condom on of course, but that is pretty much where he stays the whole entire scene. They only switch to another position once with that position only being the spoon, which causes some boredom on the viewer’s part. For Taylor’s part, she really seems to thoroughly enjoy the proceedings, utterly and completely submitting herself to Tony’s whim and gripping the bed sheets with amazing force. Eventually, Tony enters her ass quite nicely. Again, a little variety would have been nice. For her first anal scene, Taylor gets it from Tony in doggy style and only in doggy style. It utterly pales in comparison to the anal antics she would later take part in. The ass fucking is stopped by Tony, who doesn’t look like he can take more. We do another white screen and come back to Taylor on the floor, kneeling in front of Tony as she sucks him off. He cums right as she puts him in her mouth. At first you think she swallowed the majority of his cum, but then you realize that he barely came at all and the little bit she spits out is all of it. She sucks his dick, as his body spasms every time she touches his spent dick. It is pretty funny as she pretty much laughs at him as she is inflicting this kind of torture on him.
(The original scene length: 43 minutes)
Scene 3:Taylor St. Claire w/Randy West (7 minutes)
From Foot Lovers Only 6(2000): This compilation actually features a scene taken from another compilation. They probably just want you to go buy Foot Lovers Only 6 as well. Don’t be fooled. This scene is actually the last couple of minutes from Taylor’s scene in Up and Cummers 81. 5 years earlier Randy was jerking off while watching Taylor masturbate. He must have never thought this day would come, but here Taylor sucks Randy’s little dick for a while and he begs her for a titty fuck, which she nicely obliges. She wants him to cum on her feet, which she aids out by jerking him off to orgasm with her feet. Once he is spent, he says that Tera Patrick did the same thing and was able to suck the cum off of her feet. At first Taylor looks at Randy like, “I just sucked your dick and you’re talking about Tera Patrick for some reason.” Then she gets what he’s getting at…it’s a challenge she eagerly accepts. She tries her left leg first and can only lick the tip of her big toe. In a cute moment, she looks into the camera and says, “I need a bigger leg”. At Randy’s suggestion, she tries her right leg and is more successful, getting her whole big toe in her mouth. She gets some of the cum off and says she’s probably not as flexible as Tera Patrick. Scene ends with Randy saying, “Not bad Taylor St. Claire.”
Scene 4:Taylor St. Claire and Taylor Moore (cute blonde from a couple of years ago, think of modern porn star Shawnie or current WWE wrestler Trish Stratus just minus the fake chest) (22 minutes)
From I Love Lesbians 6 (1999): The scene starts out with a close-up Taylor St. Claire’s ass and then it pans out to reveal Taylor and Taylor Moore lying on a bed. Randy West says that his fans might recognize that beautifully round ass from “Up and Cummers 19”. This is kind of funny as Taylor St. Claire kind of mock-takes offense to him calling it a round ass. Randy mentions that when he first met Taylor in 1995, she wasn’t even into girls. The two of them seem to seriously offer Randy to join them, but he shows more will power than I would have had and says that this is girl’s night out. By the way, the two of them met at an adult convention and wanted to do it, so he hooked them up. To prevent confusion, I’ll call Taylor St. Claire…Taylor, and I’ll call Taylor Moore…Moore. After the obligatory undressing and titty worship, Taylor goes to town on Moore’s pussy. Her treatment is good enough it makes Moore comment, “For someone who didn’t like pussy 4 years, you sure pick up quick.” After some fun, the rest of the scene pretty much features Taylor on the receiving end of all the action. Moore does your usual job of eating out Taylor. After pointing out that Taylor’s tits are 100% natural, Moore sucks on her nipples. The action really starts to pick up when Moore 3 finger fucks Taylor and then uses her mouth to fuck the hell out of Taylor with a thick dildo. They share a double-head dildo in but-to-but missionary and doggy style, during which Taylor goes crazy in passion. Then there is some pretty typical strap-on fucking, with Taylor being on the receiving end of it in both doggy style and reverse cowgirl position. Taylor seems to cum and very enthusiastically sucks the dildo straight from her own pussy. They engage in some light anal play to finish things off, as Moore struggles but succeeds to shove a small, carrot dildo up Taylor’s ass. They both eventually suck it straight from the arse.
(The original scene length: 39 minutes)
Scene 5: Luna (gorgeous young brunette/redhead w/possibly implants, awesome breasts) w/Mario (24 minutes)
From Please Cum Inside Me 6: Again, they cite another compilation as their source but this scene is originally from Up and Cummers 94. This is Luna’s first boy/girl scene and she ends up doing her first creampie as well. They fornicate in several positions before the guy loses control while still inside of her. I have seen Luna elsewhere and she struck me as a lame performer there. She is real into the action here though. It is a shame that she only spent a short amount of time in the industry.
Scene 6: Monica Mayhem (foreign blonde, pre-implants) w/Erik Everhard (13 minutes)
From Up and Cummers 92: This is graciously Monica before her rather unfortunate implants. She engages in some spirited sex with Erik Everhard, who absolutely jack hammers her at several occasions. However, it is extremely truncated here.
The Verdict:New Machine are the geniuses behind the DVDs of Ed Powers and Randy West. This particular compilation is completely Randy West. What West is known for are his rather long scenes where performers who genuinely want to work together are paired up and allowed to play. It provides a notion of cinema verite that is lacking elsewhere. If a girl wants to take a break or any other such thing, Randy will usually show it. For instance, in the scene from “Up and Cummers 81” there is a fascinating sequence before the anal sex where Tony stands to the side and Randy just zooms in on Taylor’s pussy to show how wet she is. She is so taken with it all that she can barely speak. Luckily, this makes it in this compilation. However, there are many other such scenes that are edited out and the reasoning is puzzling. Taylor has only ever done 3 scenes for Randy West and was smart enough to never work for Ed Powers. The logical thing for New Machine to do would be simply throwing the scenes together without edits. Instead, they add it in the Luna and Monica Mahyem scenes for no good reason and as result the other ones are cut to hell. It does not make sense. On top of that, the actual material they have is no longer that exciting. These three St. Claire scenes captured her at three stages of her career, yet fail to capture her as the wanton sex demon she would be in oh so many scenes.
Rent it or Buy It:This is only a candidate for purchase for those of you Taylor St. Claire fans out there. The good it does serve is that it would be a cost-cutting purchase, but to get the full appreciation I would recommend seeking out the full scenes from I Love Lesbians 6 and Up and Cummers 81. Otherwise, this is a rental-only at best.
The DVD: The video quality is okay, as her scene from 1995 is understandably a bit faded and grainy. As for extras:
First of all, they have a ridiculously outdated biography.
Second of all, their picture gallery of her contains pictures that they may not even have the right to show. Represented in the gallery are pictures of Taylor in scenes for Video Team, VCA, and Coast to Coast. And again these are taken straight from www.excaliburfilms.com.
There are also trailers of other New Machine titles.
About the Author: A current college student, Kelly began his infatuation with pornography with the likes of late night Skinimax before graduating to hardcore. As such, sometimes storylines go a long way toward his enjoyment but sometimes he just wants to see some hard sex. In either avenue though, girl/girl bored him to tears. He used to operate a fan site dedicated to Taylor St. Claire, who is still to this day his favorite porn star. Other favorite girls include Renee LaRue, Zora Banks, Cherry Mirage, Avy Scott, Alyssa Love, and Devinn Lane. Though he does generally prefer voluptuous, big-breasted women, he also enjoys the work of Stephanie Swift, Jennifer Luv, August Night, Luci Thai, and Selena Silver. He avoids Max Hardcore, Ed Powers, Vivid, and compilations as much as possible, and eagerly looks forward to releases from Evil Angel, Devils Film, Red Light District, and Platinum X. He generally favors anal scenes and DP scenes with big facials, but is too timid for gangbangs and any such other extremities. His favorite directors are Vince Vouyer, Mike John, Joey Silvera, Tom Byron, and Jules Jordan. His favorite porn films of all time include “The Fashionistas” (2003), “Whack Attack 9” (2001), and “Service Animals 7” (2002).
