The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I don’t think I noticed a single background noise. The video is also very well done. There’s not even a hint of grain and it’s extremely well lit.
Music: There’s some sexy music throughout the movie. It’s nicely balanced with the rest of the audio, and adds to the movie.
Menus: The menus are okay. The main menu gives a little animation and a bit of the movie while the chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the name of the lovely ladies in each one. After selecting a scene, you’re given a second menu to choose what part of the tease you want to go to.
The FeatureThe Stocking Secrets series goes with a very simple idea. You start with a gorgeous woman wearing stockings and a little lingerie, a slip, or a nightgown. Then you let her slowly strip down and tease the viewer. The stockings are a part of the scene, but not necessarily a dominant part or the driving force behind the scene. Here, you get luscious blonde Ashley Roberts and tantalizing brunette Tarney Halle.
|Scene 1 - Ashley Roberts|
Ashley starts Stocking Secrets 10 out in a burgundy corset with black shoes, stockings, panties, and a garter belt. She lets her hands run around her fantastic body before letting her great chest loose. Her shoes and stockings are next to go before the camera focuses in on Ashley’s crotch as a hint of things yet to come. Of course the panties go next, and Ashley shows off her fantastic ass bending over on the couch she’s been playing on. Finally, she offers her panties to “you” for a sniff.
This is a very nice opening scene. Ashley has a great body and definitely knows how to show it off. The cameras keep things nicely balanced as she works her tease, and had me nicely drawn in throughout the scene. This is just as good a scene as I have come to expect from this series.
|Scene 2 - Tarney Halle|
Tarney starts things out in a white top, black panties, tights, and sexy high heeled strappy shoes. She slides her top off to show an okay implanted rack before moving on to tease the camera with her ass and those smoking hot size 7 shoes! She undoes her shoes and slides them off next, followed by letting her hand roam around inside her stockings. She finally slides them down and runs them around her body before waving them over the camera as it fades out.
Tarney does a good job also. She plays to the camera nicely, and does a very good job turning her legs just right to hide her pussy and add to the tease. She has a nice smile, and although she looks like she has a few years on Ashley she does a great job of showing that a couple more years doesn’t mean less sexy. This is another very good scene.
|Scene 3 - Ashley Roberts|
Ashley starts out her second scene waving her fishnet-clad legs around while also wearing a light bluish green sleeveless shirt and panties. She gets up and lifts her shirt to show off her boobs before turning around to keep showing the complete package. She slides off her stockings first, and lets her panties follow as she lightly caresses her tits. She moves her hand down to play with her pussy a bit as well, and finally says she’ll put her stockings back on to come visit you.
This is another nicely done scene from Ashley. She looks every bit as great here as she did earlier, and I love how she left her top on throughout the scene. She kicks things up nicely from the earlier scene with the light masturbation, and left me just as happy with this scene as her previous scene.
|Scene 4 - Tarney Halle|
Tarney starts out the final scene in a pale blue neglige with a few little flowers, nude stockings, and shoes to match her neglige. She slides off her neglige and dances around a little before giving a peek of her bald beaver under her panties. She loses her panties, and after a little more teasing breaks out a large blue vibe. She runs it around her body rather than sliding it in, and finally slides her stockings off. After a few more words, Tarney lets her stockings fall to the floor as the camera fades out.
This is another nicely done scene. I’ll admit that I was a little disappointed by Tarney’s implanted rack, but her accent works well here. Her vocals fall a little flat, but when she lets her eyes and smile work it easily makes up for it. Although there are several parts of this scene that didn’t work too well for me, it also has some of my favorite shots with Tarney lying back in a chair with her feet on the doorway. This is a nicely done scene, but also my least favorite in the movie.
As it enters double digits, Stocking Secrets 10 shows some great consistency. As usual the girls are very nice looking and keep a nice pace to their tease. I love how Kira and Smash went back to going with girls with different colored hair rather than going with two blondes or two brunettes, and both Ashley and Tarney do a nice job and have some nice touches to their teases. Ashley is a bit more flirtatious while Tarney comes off as slightly more distant. The distance isn’t a problem here because it adds to the tease. While Ashley gives the feeling of being playful and almost guaranteeing that you’d get some from her, Tarney adds a bit of uncertainty. As usual the camera work does a nice job of capturing it and gives the movie a classy feel. The editing seems a little rougher and more pronounced here than in some of the other installments, but it doesn’t interfere with the teases too much. Stocking Secrets 10 is yet another very nice addition to the Stocking Secrets series.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Camel Toe Perversions, Cum Catchers, Easy Prey, Legal Skin 16, My Playtoy 3, and Shitty Shitty Bang Bang. The photo gallery lasts about two minutes and gives you about six seconds per good looking snapshot. There’s also weblinks and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts eight minutes. Kira and her cameraman start things out talking with the girls about what they want for the scene as well as snapping a few stills. It’s a nice little behind the scenes featurette that mixes things up nicely between the girls. I think this is the first of Kira’s Stocking Secrets to have a behind the scenes featurette, and it makes a great addition to the DVD.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: All girl, softcore, tease, masturbation (light), and toys
Raincoat Factor: Very high if teasing is enough for you. Very low if you want actual sex
Condom Usage: None needed
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Smash DVDs can be found online for between $14 and $24 with most stores offering them in the $20 range. If you’ve liked the rest of the series, you’ll find this one well worth your while. If you’re new to the series, I’d recommend either renting one or buying the excellent Best of Stocking Secrets compilation to see how you like it since it’s not everybody’s cup of tea. There’s some nice effort put into the extras, and the technical aspects are great. This is a nicely put together DVD.
Note to Smash Pictures: The behind the scenes featurette was a nice touch. I hope we continue to see them with this series.
