The Short Story
Initial Expectations: I haven't seen anything from Visage, so although I'm trying to keep an open mind going in this one sounds like it could be fun!
Initial Reaction: It's quite a bit different than I expected, but works far better than I would have dreamed.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wondering if they too could do a sexy strip tease
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a lot of different moves demonstrated in a clinical manner
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and has a good balance with the music. The video is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen. It has a soft look and varies the lighting very well to help the mood.
Music: The music is very well done. It varies in style from scene to scene, but never loses any sexuality. It's often the only audio, but there is a little audio from the girls as well.
Disc Complaints: You're forced to watch a commercial for Visage's website before you can get to the main menu, and you can't skip past or even scan through it. This always pisses me off, and I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of it.
Menus: The main menu blends the boxcover still with a little clip from the movie in the background. The chapter menu is pretty generic and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The FeatureSince the beginning of time, women have been using dance as a way to not just turn men on, but to turn themselves on as well. How to Strip Like a Pro gives a few tips on how to harness that power, and focuses on the importance of attitude more than any set technique.
|Scene 1 – Sarah Vandella|
Cute bottle blonde Sarah dances around as she strips out of a leopard print bikini and black panties. She strips off her bra, jiggles her tits, and slowly teases off her panties while dancing around a bed. Sarah moves onto the bed and continues to put on her show before moving on to rub her pussy and slap her tits. She finishes herself off before sucking her fingers clean and waving goodbye.
This is an okay scene. There's a couple minor tips pointed out as Sarah strips down, but there isn't much there for the instructional part of the scene. Sarah does look fantastic and puts on a nice tease, and her masturbation is also nicely done. This might not be a great instructional scene, but it is one that's enjoyable to watch.
|Scene 2 – Amy Ried|
Dirty blonde Amy strips down to show off her tits and drops her little skirt and panties behind a net by a bed as she dances around seductively. She brings out a curved blue vibe that she runs by her tits before putting it to work on her bald beaver, and mixes in a few tastes of her pussy from the toy as well. Amy works herself to a nice little orgasm and sucks the toy clean with a smile before the scene fades out.
This is another nicely done scene. Amy looks as hot as ever and keeps a very nice pace to the scene. The tips for stripping are once again on the light side, but Amy's tease is very nicely captured and edited together. The masturbation is also nicely done and helps this to be an all around sexy scene. This is a hot scene that worked well for me.
|Scene 3 – Angie Savage|
Bottle blonde Angie starts out in some sexy black lingerie dancing around and stripping down slowly. She sits back by a mirror, licks her fingers, and plays with the spit before drooling down on her tits and playing with her bald beaver. Angie tastes her fingers again before breaking out a silver dildo, and fucks herself with the toy before taking a taste of it too.
This is another nicely done scene. Angie plays to the camera very well and her spit play sets her scene apart from the others very nicely. She looks to really love the taste of her pussy, and although that helps this to be one of the nastier scenes in the movie it still works very well. This is another hot scene.
|Scene 4 – Shawna Lenee|
Bottle blonde Shawna strips out of a pink and white polka dot bra, skirt, and panties to show a decently augmented rack and a bald beaver while also giving plenty of playful eyes. She sits back on a wooden chair and rubs her pussy before giving it a little finger play. Shawna kicks it up a notch with the help of a pink vibe, and finally gives herself a nice orgasm.
This is another nice scene. Shawna is very easy on the eyes, and plays up the shy girly aspect extremely well to start the scene. She keeps the scene at a nice pace and the camera works its way around her body very well. This is yet another scene that worked well for me.
|Scene 5 – Puma Swede|
Bottle blonde Puma talks with Rachel Roxxx about how she got started as a dancer and her love of dancing as well as giving a few tips before putting on her show in a little black and leopard print bra and panties. She dances around as she strips down before sitting back in a pink chair to suck a lavender dildo and then rub it around her pussy. She teases her pussy a little before sliding the toy in and fucking herself both as she lays back and on all fours. Finally the scene fades out with Puma looking satisfied.
This is a very nice addition to the movie. I really like Puma's opening talk about the joy she gets from stripping and how it's something that any woman should be able to do. She keeps the scene moving nicely with her tease and show, and looks pretty darn hot with her hair in a bob rather than the longer hair I'm used to seeing her with. This was another enjoyable scene.
|Scene 6 – Rachel Roxxx|
Brunette Rachel dances in a little black skirt and bikini top with cherries on them after giving the camera a few words. She slowly strips down as she dances around without playing with herself, and then teases her pussy with a grey vibrator that soon after gets slid inside. Rachel takes a few tastes of her toy as she makes herself cum, and gives the camera plenty of nice looks as well.
This is another very nice scene. Rachel looks great, and I really like how she keeps her play light until the toy comes out. It has a nicely natural feel to the action, and Rachel paces it very well also. This is yet another scene which worked well for me.
|Scene 7 – Savannah Gold|
Golden haired Savannah introduces herself while wearing a tight pink short shirt and skirt that can't quite hide the goodies that lie inside. She dances around the rail in front of a waterfall before ripping her top open, and wets down her outfit and uses it to help show off her nicely augmented body. Savannah plays with her pussy lightly as she shows off before vocally working on it with a pink vibrator. She rolls around as she fucks herself and takes a few tastes of the toy before satisfying herself and letting the camera fade out.
This is a very likable scene. I love the waterfall location, and although the scene is quite a bit darker than the others, it helps to give the scene a very sexy feeling. Savannah does a very nice job working herself over and teasing the camera, and doesn't seem to hold back on her vocals at all. This is a hot scene that's one of my favorites in the movie.
|Scene 8 – Nikki Hunter|
Smoking hot Nikki, who has her hair a mix of black and purple, finally starts dancing around after narrating the other scenes. She changes from her little white sexy dress to a red bra and black skirt and strips down as she dances around her stool. Nikki plays with herself naturally before turning a purple glass vibe loose on her shaved slit. Finally the scene fades out with Nikki looking nicely pleased.
This is a very nice final scene. Nikki looks fantastic, and her show is a nice treat after how great a job she did through the rest of the movie. Nikki is a huge reason why the movie worked as well as it did, and she definitely puts her money where her mouth was finishing the movie up. This is a very enjoyable scene with Nikki providing some great eye candy.
How to Strip Like a Pro is a surprisingly good release. It's not just surprising in its quality, but also in how well it works with a style that most won't expect from an instructional movie. How to Strip Like Pro isn't so much about movements as attitude, and lets the action be most about teasing and masturbation rather than showing specific moves. Nikki Hunter is a very big reason why the movie works as well as it does, as not only does she look fantastic and draw the viewer in, but she gives the entire movie a very sexy and very supportive foundation. How to Strip Like a Pro realizes just how important attitude and confidence is and works to let women know that with the right attitude and belief in themselves that they can find a sexual power they might not have realized they had. Yes, it does point out a few moves here and there and the action is slow and sensual enough that there are moves that women can emulate, but that aspect is never pushed too hard. I can see some people being very disappointed in the movie because of this, but I really can't. The teases and masturbation sequences are all very sexy, and although there isn't a single guy in the movie, between the sexiness of the ladies and the attitude put forward in the movie I can see this being a release that many couples can use to jump start their playtime. How to Strip Like a Pro might not be what many viewers are expecting going in, but it works so well that I can't help but highly recommend it to anybody who's the least bit curious about it.
The Extra StuffThe only extra is a behind the scenes featurette which lasts almost thirteen minutes. After a quick outtake, Nikki talks about her pussy and being addicted to her vibrators while mixing in a little tease and showing off plenty of great spirit. Savannah poses for stills and talks about being a dirty girl before Angie and Shawna pose together and talk about sex. Rachel talks about her first experience with a girl before Sarah talks about sex, escorting, and romance. Amy talks about pacing herself sexually and Puma talks about porn in Scandinavian, being engaged, and her magic wand. This is a very nice behind the scenes featurette. It might not include all of the girls, which would have been nice, but it does give you some nice eye candy with all of the ones who are included as well as some very nice personality from them. This is a very nice addition to the overall DVD.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: All girl, tease, masturbation, and toys
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None needed
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Visage DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $25 with most stores offering them for around $20. If you're at all curious about this one, pick it up. It might not be quite what you're expecting, but it takes a different route and makes it work extremely well. The technical aspects are nicely done and only held back by a non-anamorphic widescreen transfer and there's some nice effort put into the extras. This is a very nicely done DVD that's well worth checking out.
Note to Visage: If this is the type of movie you're going to put out and the type of care you're going to put into your releases, I can't wait to see more of your movies!
