“Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Advanced Anal Sex” is a good production from Vivid and Tristan Taormino that, as its title implies, provides instructional information about the practice of anal stimulation. The disc kicks off with about 20 minutes of informational material, and a variety of topics are covered. There’s info on the anatomy / science of anal play, preparing for it, pointers on what to do, info regarding the male prostate and the female G-spot, material on various positions, and coverage of the topic as it pertains to both men and women (as givers and receivers, alike). After this, there’s a transition to four demonstrations involving adult stars, each with its own unique characteristics and flavor. Sex-wise, the demos are typically fairly hot, though a couple of them don’t end in a male climax, so it’s a bit of a let-down in that regard. All in all, this one is informative, and the production achieves its educational goals well.
In terms of the demonstrations, each starts off with informative interviews with the participants, and the sex follows. Scene One pairs Kylie Ireland with James Deen in a brick-walled bedroom with the sun shining in. This one includes the use of anal fingering, lube applicators, a black latex glove for further lubing, the use of a big red butt-plug on Kylie (including in a double penetration scenario with James in her vagina), a huge black dildo being worked into Kylie’s backside, and a few more-typical anal positions. James never pops in this one, though it still manages to remain in the good-to-very-good category in terms of its sexual quality. In Scene Two, Adrianna Nicole and Danny Wylde demonstrate more anal possibilities. Adrianna gets some anal fingering and a slim butt-plug put into her backside that’s then taped in for awhile with red bondage tape. Danny also works her over with a wood anal plug and an inflatable anal plug, before taking her in a handful of sexy anal positions. Not to be left out, Adrianna anally fingers him as she blows him and puts a small, curved metal plug in his ass. This very good sequence is capped off with a pop-shot to Adrianna’s ass and back.
Scene Three is the best on the disc, though it doesn’t conclude with a cum-shot. In this one, Bobbi Starr—who surprisingly does most of her anal work for the camera and doesn’t practice much of it at home—gets it on with Mr. Marcus in a brown-and-gold-themed bedroom. Bobbi starts out with a green anal plug held in her bottom by a locked harness. Marcus frees her from her anal cage and then the games begin. Bobbi pushes a big purple butt-plug into her ass and also blows Marcus. After this action, a variety of sexy anal positions are employed by the pair, before this excellent segment comes to a close. In Scene Four, adult film industry icon Nina Hartley takes on Christian XXX in a bedroom with a mirror behind a violet-hued bed. Both Nina and Christian get some anal love in this one, as no one is left out. Nina gets a large metal dildo in her backside as Christian takes her vaginally in a missionary-like position, and he later takes her anally in a few other positions, as well. For Christian, Nina fingers him with a black latex glove while blowing him, puts a metal anal plug in him and then gives him a cowgirl riding, uses a curved metal dildo / hook in his ass while blowing him, and then ultimately nails him in a couple of positions with a purple strap-on. This good-to-very-good scene is finished off with Christian popping on his stomach while Nina is fucking him with the strap-on in a missionary position. This is certainly unique material.
In terms of extras, there are tutorials / info on “Safer Sex & Choking Safety”, “Strap-On Tips”, “Anal Hygiene”, and “Solo Prostate Stimulation” (featuring Christian XXX and a couple of other guys demonstrating the use of anal toys / stimulators on themselves). There’s also a “Photo Gallery” (slideshow of stills), a choice of four related “Previews”, and a “Vivid Extras” option that plays through advertisements and the anti-piracy PSA. It should also be noted that there’s a watermark in the lower-right portion of the screen, but it isn’t really distracting…and advertisements play upon inserting the disc. These can be skipped. The screen resolution could also be a bit better in places, though nothing in this regard is too bad.
All in all, this is a good adult production that meets its educational goals well. It also provides some decent anal scenes for those interested more in the sex…though it would have been better had they all ended in a male climax. If you’re in the market for this type of instructional video and looking to add an anal component to your sex life, this is a good choice.
