Initial Expectations: Iíve heard good things about the Silk series and have enjoyed the few DVDs Iíve seen from Fallen Angel. It gives me good hopes for this as well.
Initial Reaction: Itís a nicely done low budget all sex feature that has me looking forward to the rest of the Silk series.
Who Should Watch It : Raincoaters, fans of Alexandra Silk, and anybody who loves to see panties
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for a plot
Audio /Video Quality: The audio quality varies a little, but normally has most of the problems normally associated with gonzo porn such as a slightly hollow sound. Itís normally pretty good, but there are some inconsistencies, such as having the audio change from a mix to only the music. The video is about the same. Itís normally good, but has some grains and the quality drops a little with a few slow motion and fast forward sequences. Thankfully, none of the inconsistencies interfere too much with the feature.
Music: The music is fairly typical and normally rests in the background very nice. Thereís a few spots where it comes up, even to the point of being the only audio, but normally itís at a perfect level.
Menus: The menus are fairly simple but nicely done. The chapter selection allows you to choose from a big enough clip that you can tell who the performers are. The bios menu allows you to pick the girls by their photo.
Disc Problems / Complaints: Watching it on my DVD-ROM, the picture froze at the end of Chapters 6, 21, and 27 through 40 (the last two scenes) and had to be manually advanced. I didnít have nearly as many problems on my standalone player, but it did still occur a few times. I had a similar problem on Internal Affairs 2 that I was hoping was just a fluke. Luckily this time it doesnít last throughout the movie, but itís enough that it really starts to tick you off. Also, the Silk Shots icon, similar to Adam & Eveís Hot Shot icon, stays on the entire movie without being able to turn it off.
The Feature: Silk Panties is the second in Alexandra Silkís line of fetish features. She starts off by talking about the allure of panties and the excitement a public panty shot causes. After that, itís straight to the sex with only a little break between the scenes where Alexandra talks about panties.
Jewel Valmont, now known as Ava Vincent, and Shaena Steele start things off with Alec Metro. This appears to be one of Avaís very early scenes as she hasnít decided she should be a blonde yet. She looks gorgeous as a brunette, and personally I like it better than her current bleach job. Shaena is also very cute, and both girls have natural bodies which I always love to see. Thereís plenty of groping back and forth before the girls remove Alecís pants to work on his twig and berries. Both girls keep their panties on as theyíre stripped down, and are then pulled aside for a little pussy eating with Shaena both giving and receiving in the middle. They stay in that arrangement so Shaena gets her pussy fucked first also. When Ava gets her turn, Shaena sits by Avaís face and masturbates as she watches. Ava reaches a hand back now and then to help, but thatís about it. Alec finally lets his love shine all over both girls faces. This is one of those scenes where an up and coming star really stands out. Ava is great in this scene and really into it throughout the entire scene. Shaena does a good job, but appears a lot more professional than Ava does, who appears to just be there to fuck and suck as much as she can.
Alexandra goes to the lingerie shop for the next scene where Blair Segal, an attractive and realistic looking redhead, models some panties and lingerie for Evan Stone. She shows Evan the last outfit as she lays back in a chair. He comes over, and after a little kissing on both her lips and very nice real tits, dives down to work on her pussy. In a very different and sexy touch, Blair pulls her hair back and leaves her open bra on as she vigorously works over Evanís cock with a very sloppy blowjob. They return to a chair where Blair lays back for Evan to give her a good, hard fucking. They move around a little so Evan can fuck Blair from behind as they look into a mirror. Finally, Evan lets go with his love lotion on Blairís tits. Her reaction seemed a little forced, but other than that, itís a very good scene.
After talking about masturbating, including showing some masturbation in fast forward, Alexandra Silk reminisces about her first sexual experience with a woman. Sadly, we donít get to see anything about this experience but instead Katie Gold gives a nice little tease. Sheís joined by Peris Bleau, who looks very good. Peris works Katieís pussy over both naturally and with a toy as Katie leans against a wall of glass blocks. Katie returns the favor next to Peris, and then takes a vibe up the ass. Itís a good scene, but I would have liked to have seen a lot more of Peris.
Timber does a little housecleaning while showing off her panties in the next scene. Sheís an attractive bleached blonde with nicely done implants, and a very realistic body that isnít as extremely tight as many other adult film stars. Her husband, Herschel Savage notices and helps her get rid of a lot of that bulky lingerie. He drops down to eat Timberís pussy as she sits on the kitchen counter, enjoying every lick. She drops down next to suck of Herschel, which she does nicely, and then movies over to half hop up on the stove to get fucked. She ends the scene by taking Herschelís pop directly on her tits. The only thing I remembered about Timber when this scene started was that she was in a pretty poor movie called Thrust. This didnít give me the best of hopes for this scene, but she does a really great job here. She looks great and has great chemistry with Herschel. She also has some decent energy that helps the scene out nicely.
Alexandra next tells of her friend who uses her panties to try and get guys to go home with her as Chloe shows off her panties. Chloe then comes where a guy helps take her panties off with his teeth in a hot tub, showing off Chloeís piercing down there that I hadnít seen before. Iím not sure which guy it is, but itís either C. K. Blade or John Peters, since their both there and the only two guys in the movie I donít recognize. Both guys work Chloe over nicely in the tub, one taking the high road and one taking the low road. This scene also has a nice difference. A little bit of the action takes place under water where you donít see it. Normally I donít care for this, but it seemed to work for this scene. The guys do a good job of keeping up with Chloe, which isnít a common thing. They work off each other very well, which helps out this scene quite a bit. Both guys finish the scene off by blasting Chloeís face with a spooge spray. Itís a pretty good scene that I really wanted to like, but I kept feeling like something was missing in it.
As a fetish feature, Silk Panties is very tame, which I donít mean a bad way at all. In most fetish features, the fetish takes over the entire feature and doesnít leave room for anything else. Not so here. Instead, Alexandra manages to wrap well done sex scenes, most notably the scene between Timber and Herschel and Shaena Steele with Alec Metro and Ava Vincent, around the fetish of choice, in this case being panties. It turns the feature from a complete fetish movie to a movie with a fetish. The only thing that really brings it down are the technical problems.
Extras: The slide show lasts almost three and a half minutes with about five seconds per nicely done picture. Itís a decent mix of snapshots and full screen shots. If youíd rather take your time, you can instead choose the Gallery which allows you to watch the photos at your own pace. Bios are included for all of the women in the feature, including Alexandra Silk. Thereís some nice personal information and you choose the girls by their picture, which is a very nice touch. Finally, thereís a montage of the cum shots in the feature and web site information.
Themes: Straight, panties, group, lesbian, rimming (male > female), masturbation, toys, spanking, anal, and toe-ing
Raincoat Factor: Extreme
Overall: Currently, Silk Panties can be found online for between $20 and $24. If youíre a big fan of panties, this is going to be right up your alley. Every scene features panty shots of all different kinds. The transfer is normally good for gonzo porn, but thereís a little bit of slow motion and fast forwarding that are a little off. Sadly, thereís also a few technical problems since many of the chapters donít advance on their own, especially if you use a DVD-ROM. If it werenít for the technical problems I wouldnít have any problem recommending this DVD, but at its price, you shouldnít have technical problems like this. Rent it first.
Note to Fallen Angel: Please do a little better job on your quality control. This is the second of your DVDs Iíve watched that had some bad technical problems, namely having to manually advance from one chapter to the next. Itís annoying enough that I took a Ĺ point off the rating of the overall DVD because of it.
