Well, this is the second Digital Playground disc I've seen, and the first I've ever reviewed, so how did it stack up?
The Movie: Okay, I'm going to start this off by saying that if you hate movies with a lot of talking and character stuff, then avoid Stripped at all costs. This movie is very dialogue heavy, and all the sex is very spaced out. There are several really well done strip scenes, but I don't know if many would find them all that worthy of wank material. This is a very strong couples film, but is not a very good whack movie.
The sex is good, although the scenes are fairly short. I was actually suprised with how the sex seemed almost pushed to the side, but what is there is good, and is fairly hot, and very well filmed.
The first scene is between Devon and Barett. It's a nice scene, but not really memorable. You go from the usual oral (male to female, female to male) then in to some vaginal sex in about two positions. Nothing to ground breaking, but the stuff turns out pretty hot. Everything feels a tad bit to over produced though, so the passion is a bit lacking.
The next scene is between Hershel Savage and Monica Sweetheart. The scene is nice, but again, not really memorable. Everything is very safe, and very quick.
After this we have two girl/girl scenes spaced out between the next half and hour or so. Both girl girl scenes are nice, and have decent heat, but they really seemed cut short. The first one is a scene with two strippers in the bathroom. I hardly remember any of it, and girl/girl scenes are usually the ones that stand out to me as the ones with the most heat between the actors. This one was rather flat. After this there is a large chunk of plot, and then you have Devon and another stripper go for it on the bar. Again, not very memorable.
There is more plot, and then we go to a scene between Julian and Devon. I was actually looking forward to this scene, because I had never seen Julian perform, and I have nothing against seeing an attractive guy in a scene, but I was disappointed. It's very fast, very safe, and very tame.
The sex in this movie is nice, safe stuff, but hardly memorable.
The plot in this movie is nothing special either, but it does have some really great characters in it. Both Hershel Savage and Ginger Lynn do great jobs with their parts, especially Miss Lynn. She is just... WOW! She really can act, and it's a shame she doesn't get more mainstream exposure. She also does a great job in her strip scenes, generating more heat than most of the actual sex scenes.
The plot goes like this. Devon plays a young want to be actress who is trying to break in to the business. The problem is that she isn't getting any jobs. So her best friend, played by Ginger Lynn, tells her to try stripping. After giving it a little thought, Devon gives in and becomes a stripper, even though her boyfriend, Barett, objects. Things start going well, and then she ends up breaking up with Barett, and moving deeper in to the world of stripping, and soon adult films.
Nothing to challenging in the plot. Everyone handles their own very well, and the movie is very interesting to watch for the acting bits more so than for the sex. Plus, the movie just looks amazing! Very proffesional, and very clean cut. I honestly forgot I was watching a porno after a while, and then one of the sex scenes would start up, and I would be reminded. This is something you could easily show your girlfriend or wife or anyone who is mildly interested in porn. This movie is more erotic than it is hardcore, but because of that the raincoater crowd will probably want to avoid it. Still, for an enjoyable little movie with okay sex, and some really well done acting I would say check it out. Also, any fans of Ginger Lynn have to see this movie just for her performance.
Tech Stuff: Amazing. The picture is very clear, and the audio is crisp. The audio is the most important aspect here because of the great soundtrack. A top notch disc for sure.
Extra Stuff: You get a really nice behinds the scene, a blooper real, some galleries, and the trailer for the movie. Nothing to amazing, but still, a nice little package.
OverAll: Very safe, very tame, but still very enjoyable. If you are just starting out in watching porn, or need something to ease a girlfriend or wife in to adult films, you should really check out Stripped. Raincoaters need not apply, though. This is as tame as I've seen it in a long time.
