Greatest Scenes of All Time: Faye Reagan & Rebeca Linares in The Gauntlet 3

Greatest Scenes of All Time: Faye Reagan & Rebeca Linares in The Gauntlet 3

One of the finest examples of pornography in this century is surely Faye Reagan and Rebeca Linares’ award-winning scene from Vince Voyeur’s The Gauntlet 3. The 2007 gonzo release was nominated for multiple awards including best group sex scene, best oral sex scene and best director. Sadly, Voyeur’s vision of wild sex only took home a single award – best gonzo release at AVN.

Gauntlet films follow a simple concept. One feature star is walked through an onslaught of wild sexual encounters. In this case, Faye Reagan, then billed as Faye Valentine takes center stage progressing from blowjobs to cunnilingus and then on to to all sorts of sex and a massive blowbang to finish.

Performance is King

For my money, Faye’s gauntlet walk is one of the best pornographic scenes of all time. Voyeur pits Rebecca Linares and a young Faye Reagan in an hour-long orgy that is sure to satisfy all. Sex acts range from beautiful soft-lesbian porn to BDSM and even hardcore DP action. But don’t let that scare you — the scene is perfectly paced, so if you aren’t a fan of what’s happening, there will be a new sensual vista to enjoy before you know it. Do not fast-forward!

What makes this scene so memorable is entirely attributable to Faye’s performance. Billed as an extreme challenge, Ms. Reagan would have you believe that this is her idea of Heaven. It’s the little things — body language, subtle moans, the look on her face — that captivate the viewer and transform a run-of-the-mill gonzo scene into one of sensuous beauty. In one scene you can see the beginnings of the superstar that Faye Reagan was destined to become.

No discussion of Faye’s gauntlet is complete without mentioning the greatest snowball of all time. After an hour of athletically fucking four men, Reagan takes not one, but four creampies. It doesn’t stop there. Between each cumshot, Linares sucks the load right out of Faye’s pussy and kisses it into her mouth. By the end, the look on Faye’s face is one of cum-drunk exhaustion. It is a scene the likes of which I have never seen before. And that’s merely the mid-point of the scene – yowza.

A Diamond in the Rough

It should come as a complete surprise that Gauntlet produced such a remarkable piece of pornographic history. ‘07 was, for me, a low point in adult film. New technologies and online demand had created a market for ultra-hardcore all-sex features. Gonzo was king and pressure was on to mass produce the craziest porno.

As such, there isn’t a lot of artistry in the shots. Lighting is bright with few shadows and the production is largely, if not wholly based on a single hand-camera. You’re going to see the camera get in the way casting shadows into the scene. This isn’t supposed to be a highly produced vision; it’s a rompus fuck-fest that has more in common with “reality porn.”

Amateur is how I might describe Gauntlet 3 as a film. The three featured stars were all new to adult. Faye had been in the industry for less than a year, while Maya Hills and Crissy Moon had only started the prior year, in 2006. That’s how a lot of these films went: get new talent, film crazy stuff and repeat. And to be honest, there wasn’t a lot of memorable moments in the other scenes.

Before They Were Famous

Together with Andrew Blake’s Paid Companions, The Gauntlet 3 made Faye Reagan a star. From start to finish, the scene acts as a showcase of Faye’s pornographic prowess with sweeping shots of her beautiful body and freckled face. And her performance is second to none, forgetting the camera and apparently living an hour of unmatched bliss.

In addition to Ms. Reagan, Gauntlet also features future superstar James Deen. It is a joy to see the young talent explore the eye-contact and sensuality that he would later become famous for. Not yet a headline act, we see him fucking Linares in the background like there is no tomorrow, including some anal and DP with the dark-haired vixen. And that quad-creampie snowball? Deen contributes at the end — pretty cool stuff!

Regarding acoustics, this scene is hit and miss. Armed with naught but a single camera mic, the audio quality is terrible, but in this case it is still listenable. We can thank the performers for that. The audiophile will catch a few odd echoes and off-balance levels. But it’s worth suffering through to hear the energetic moans of Ms. Reagan and the wild screams from Linares. Do keep the sound on, but don’t boost the levels too high – it isn’t an evenly mastered piece.

At the time that I first discovered this scene, I was a young Art-Porn aficionado, naively uninterested in what I perceived as “ordinary” porno. Three days later I had purchased the film at 21-Up (now Lovebound) with my eyes slightly opened to what else the pornoverse had to offer.

Much like a beloved song, I often revisit Faye’s infamous orgy. Though I know each line, each angle, this is one sex scene that never gets old. Infinitely rewatchable, this is the quintessential hardcore porno scene. Any self respecting fan of XXX must add this to their collection. And if you do, please reach out on twitter and let me know if you agree.

Gauntlet 3 was published in 2007 and is available for order online at AdultDVDEmpire and features scenes with Maya Hills, Crissy Moon and La’Rin Lane.
