Stars: Allanah Star, Carla Bruna, La Cherry Spice, Cleo, Tyra Scott, Prue, Colette
Director: Sammy Mancini
Approx 2:45 (feature)
The Shemale Stroker series is transsexual solo-masturbation: the performer appears, usually fully dressed, then takes off some (maybe all) of her clothes, and then strokes to a climax. Each scene ends with a cumshot. Next scene.
I'm not going to get into the background or whys and wherefores of this genre; I've done that in other reviews. It comes down to this: shemale jack-offs are a niche within a niche, and either you like the idea or you don't. If you don't--bail out now.
I've seen a lot of masturbation scenes, both female and shemale. I've never seen a shemale scene that features toys, and among the several different series (e.g. She Male Pistols, Transsexual Jerk-offs, etc) the only big difference between each scene is the physical beauty of the performer. A few of them really do look (at least at a reasonable distance) like appealing women with a dick. Some look like they got their plastic surgery at a discount paint and body center. Some just like guys in drag. A couple look like escapees from Dr. Frankenstein's lab.
I used to be appalled by how few shemales were worth looking at, much less committing to film. But after watching a ton of female-solo scenes, I realized the hit-to-miss ratio wasn't that far off. Now when I look at a DVD like this, I don't expect all the performers to be hot. If I can find one keeper, then I've got a decent DVD. If there are two, I'm happy.Three and I feel like I've struck gold.
Specifics: Seven performers in seven scenes. Each scene runs somewhere between approx 15 to 30 minutes. There's a surprising amount of variation between scenes, considering it's really just a jack-off video; how many different ways can you see a girl stroke her cock? Yet they manage to make each scene a little different.
- La Cherry Spice is slim with long, limp blonde hair. She starts off in a black patent leather corset and boots, and the scene is her speaking directly to the camera as a dominatrix. Then it segues to a bedroom and her in a red teddy and a rose, and some anal fingerplay. She's billed as being 34C, but has one of the best, most realistic looking boob jobs of the group.
- Alannah Starr is more voluptuous, with very large, good looking boobs and raven hair. She starts in a blue bikini and heels out on a balcony in the city, adn then finishes up inside a room by the window. While still out on the balcony, she does a little monolog discussing her life as a TS, and an anecdote of a night getting her cock sucked by a straight guy she picked up.
- Cleo is a very slim, small-breasted performer with stringy dark hair. She shows up in a shite top, thigh-high stockings and a short skirt, and a huge dick.
- Tyra Scott has the best voice of the group--trannies often get a funky, weird voice which doesn't sound like either a man or a woman, but has enough elements of both to be disturbing. If I only heard Tyra on the telephone, I'd swear she was all woman. Tyra also a pretty face, but is slim and small breasted and when she takes the nightgown off, tends to look like more like a guy in drag. Tyra also does a short monlog and tells an anecdote about an experience with a guy.
- Carla Bruni is a busty blonde, though they're obviously fake. Her scene looks like a music video, with strong color, a music bed, and a dance. Carla doesn't talk much, but does a strip and then settles on a couch. What makes her scene truly unique is her dildo, which she uses in her ass as she strokes. It's the only scene on this DVD that includes a toy.
- Collette is another slim blonde, again with a better than average voice, though she doesn't talk much. She begins dressed in a simple top and short skirt, and (with an annoying porn-music background) brings herself off on a sofa.
- Prue ends the tape, a dirty blonde with big boobs and a pretty face. She begins with a photo shoot shot through guaze, so the images look a bit like the old Bob Guccione stuff from Penthouse in the 80s. No music, but an annoying ready-beep from the studio strobes, which to me sounds like life support in the Intensive Care ward at a hospital. I keep waiting for someone to call Code Blue. Anyway, after a strip and posing, Prue strips and gets down to business on the old sheet-covered sofa. All the scenes end with a cumshot, but while Prue's is the hamster-pop of the bunch (not more than a pearl), the orgasm itself seems the most realistically intense of the bunch.
Special Features:None. No bonuses. No ads, other than a quick plug for the website tacked onto the end of the movie.
Production values: varies from scene to scene. None of them are going to win cinematography awards, but they're good enough. Even though I was a little put off by the soft focus on some, trannies usually don't bear close scrutiny and are best photographed at a bit of a distance. Still--the camera is almost always where I want it to be, the scenes are shot gonzo-style but the movement isn't wild enough to be annoying, and all-in-all I was satisfied with the results.
Final verdict: I particularly liked Alannah and Prue, and that makes it a keeper. It's not classic, but it has enough that I found it worthwhile.
