Running time: 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.
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. 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: It's so-so. If I go by my initial comments about wanting a couple of performers who I find attractive--then it's a failure, because none of them really did it for me. Vo comes closest, but not close enough. Overall I think the physical beauty of she-males is very important in these movies, this one is definitely lacking. Fans of she-male masturbation who particularly want toys, however, may find it worthwhile.
