The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Swank has been a bit hit or miss for me, but with the foot fetish theme that looks to be going on here I can't help but have some hope.
Initial Reaction: The action is pretty good, but the adequate camera work and crappy editing really hold it back.
Who Should Watch It : Foot freaks
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a few different fetishes rather than just feet
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are the typical weak technical aspects that seem to go along with Denys DeFrancesco. The audio is normally pretty well balanced, but there's occasionally a slightly hollow feeling, a few background noises, and areas where the sound seems to drop out completely. The video is where the technical aspects really suffer. The movie's presented in anamorphic widescreen, but has a softness that makes it look like the movie was shot over fifteen years ago. The lighting is normally well handled, but there's an inconsistency to the camera style that leaves some areas feeling like they were shot completely from a tripod where others have a little motion being shot by hand.
Music: There's some loud and fairly cheesy music to start each scene. Thankfully it never makes it all the way through the scene.
False Advertising: The cover lists behind the scenes being on the DVD, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of this.
Menus: The main menu is a bit generic, and gives you a still with a clip of the action in the background. The chapter menu is very generic, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number. When you choose a scene, however, you're given the name of the girl(s) in it and a choice of where you want to go in the scene sexually.
The FeatureFetish Debutantes focuses on feet, legs, and stockings. Each scene has a significant amount of time devoted to worshiping all three, and a bit of time devoted to teasing with them as well.
|Scene 1 – Claudia and Virgina|
Lesbian Leg and Shoe Sex starts with brunettes Claudia, in red bra and panties with black sheer stockings and heels, and Virginia, in black bra and panties along with black fishnets and heels, as they check each other out on a bed. Claudia helps Virginia out of her bra to suck her tits and is rewarded in kind before they strip off each other's panties and Virginia starts to worship Claudia's shoes, feet, and legs. Virginia lays back for Claudia to run her hand and mouth around her feet, shoes, and legs and they continue to take turns taking off each other's shoes and stockings with plenty of admiration for each other below the waist while barely even giving any attention to the pussy or ass. They finally lay back to play with each other's pussy using their feet and look like they might satisfy each other before the camera fades out.
Unless you're into feet and legs in a big way, this scene probably isn't going to do much for you despite having a beautiful pair of women in it. Heck, I'm a foot freak and at over forty minutes it got very long for me. There's a great emphasis on feet and legs, and both girls do look to get into it very well, but the scene seems to go on forever. There's some nice action here, but I couldn't help but think that this scene could have been edited down quite a bit. This one hovers near the bottom edge of average.
|Scene 2 – Natalli and a guy|
Pink Pantyhose is just what dirty blonde Natalli is wearing with her pink bra as a guy worships her legs and cheap sliver shoes. He lays back and pulls out his cock for her to rub her shoes across, and after she gives a foot a good lick takes off her shoes to rub her stocking-clad feet over his cock as well as her pantyhose covered pussy. Natalli bends over and lets him fuck her pink pantyhose before he slides his cock into her pussy and fucks her from behind. The action cuts to her sucking his cock as he worships her feet and then her laying back for him to play with her pussy, finger her ass, and suck her toes while she strokes his cock. The guy fucks her ass missionary style before spooning her, and finally has her stroke his cock with her feet until he pops on her calves.
This is a very weak scene. At about twenty minutes it's much more manageable than the previous scene, but most everything else about the scene leaves a lot to be desired. The editing leaves the scene feeling like it's completely hacked apart with the action jumping drastically from sex act to sex act. Throw in what feels like tripod camera work and a lack of chemistry and this ends up a scene that's easy to skip.
|Scene 3 – Annette Keys and a guy|
Bedtime Foot Pleasure has Anetta running a slivery shoe around her man's pants as he sits back in a chair first standing beside him and then sitting at the other end of the couch and reaching over with a foot. They kiss before she strokes his feet with her shoes while he reaches over to grope her ass. The shoes magically disappear for him to kiss before she strokes his feet a bit more both sitting back on the couch and kneeling on it. Finally the guy unloads on her soles.
This is a decent foot fetish scene. Anetta looks fantastic, and does a very nice job working the guy over with her feet. There's some decent chemistry between them, but once again the editing is very weak and choppy and holds the scene back from where it could have been. The action is very limited, but due to the scene only lasting about fifteen minutes it works pretty well. This is an okay scene that could have been helped by a little competent editing.
|Scene 4 – Sandra and a guy|
Foot Sex lets Sandra start out in a pair of artistically striped purple stockings, white over clear porno pumps, a little white skirt, and a purple top standing up with a guy kissing his way around her legs and pussy. He moves all around to worship her below the belt and then sits back for her to softly suck his cock. Sandra lays back to stroke his cock with her feet both wearing her shoes and without, and even takes off her stockings to stroke him with her bare feet in various positions. Finally, he pops on her feet and she takes a taste of his guy goo from her toes.
This is another okay scene. Sandra and the guy have decent chemistry, and both of them get into the foot action very well. The guy really seems to be into it as he worships her starting out the scene. Sadly, the camera work and editing hold the scene back once again, as well as the typical cheap feeling that goes along with Denys DeFrancesco. This could have been a very hot scene, but ends up around the average mark instead.
|Scene 5 – Cindy and a guy|
Office Leg Action has brunette Cindy watering plants wearing a little black skirt, a white button down top and knee high stockings, and fairly simple back shoes. She puts on a little tease as the guy behind the desk watches her before he comes over to help her with the plants. When they spill a little water he helps her out of her stockings after she runs her hands all around her shirt. She happily runs her now naked foot around his pants and lets him suck her toes where she was working before moving to the desk where she strokes him with her feet while playing with her pussy. Cindy rolls all around to stroke his feet with her feet, and even lets him fuck her calves before reaching around him with her feet to stroke his cock a bit more. Finally she takes a small load from him on her feet and rubs it all around with a smile.
This is a nice scene to close the movie with. Cindy looks fantastic and there's nice chemistry between her and the guy. The editing and camera work is surprisingly decent and I really like how much Cindy moved around to work the guy over with her feet. This is a hot scene and easily my favorite in the movie.
Fetish Debutantes is a decent foot fetish release. The girls are beautiful, but since the action is geared almost entirely towards foot and leg worship those who are looking for actual fucking instead of foot play will be best to look elsewhere for their action. Cindy put out a great scene to close the movie, but most of the movie had a cheap feeling that was further hurt by inept editing and borderline adequate camera work. There's something about the camera shots that combined with the horribly choppy editing left me thinking that Denys DeFrancesco or whoever was in charge of this one (as DeFrancesco is the producer and no director is listed) might be heavily into shooting magazine stills. There are some very nice angles and with how the girls play to the camera I couldn't help but think that the scenes could have made a great photo spread. If you're into feet Fetish Debutantes might be worth a look, just don't go in expecting too much.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts about four minutes with about five seconds per framed photo. Trailers are included for XXX Teens, Gent, Just 18, and Swank XXX. There's also commercials.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, lesbian, feet, tease, anal, and rimming (male > female)
Raincoat Factor: Very high if you're into feet, medium if you're not
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Swank's DVDs can be found online for between about $16 and $25 with very few stores offering them for under $20. Aim low here. The action is all oriented towards feet and legs with beautiful women, but the camera work and especially the editing severely hold it back. The technical aspects don't make it to the average level and there's no effort put into the extras. This one leaves a bit to be desired.
Note to Swank: Giving credit where it's due is always a good thing, and that includes the guys. Also, please pay more attention to your technical aspects and cover claims, or if you're going to put out basically bare bones DVDs with crappy technical aspects lower your pricing to a more reasonable level.
