The Short Story
Initial Expectations: This has been a great series so far, with the Best of Stocking Secrets compilation from the first nine episodes being one of my all time favorite compilations. Iím really looking forward to seeing what Daniel Dakota is going to do with it after taking over for Kira Eggers.
Initial Reaction: Iíve been a pretty strong supporter of this series, and I think this is the best yet.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of the female form
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting actual sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very well done. The audio is clear and well balanced. Thereís almost a hint of echo in some places due to the hard surfaces, but no more than a hint. The video is also very well done. Itís very clear, and has just enough of a hint of grain to enhance the artistic feeling of the feature. Itís also very nicely lit and changes things just slightly as it thrown in the occasional alternate camera angle to keep the artistic feeling high without interfering with the action.
Music: The music varies nicely through the movie. Much of it has a smooth and sexy jazz feel that fits the movie perfectly, but thereís also a bit of lighter rock and more typical porno music music thrown in as well. Itís very nicely balanced with the rest of the audio and seems to shift with the scenes.
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 lady in each one. After selecting a scene, youíre 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 the entrancing Cassia Riley, a brunette with a fairly tasteful tattoo on her stomach, and the enchanting MacKenzie Mack, a bottle blonde with several tattoos and a navel piercing.
|Scene 1 - Cassia Riley|
Cassia starts things out in a white corset, baby blue panties, white striped stockings, and clear and white shoes. She introduces herself while bending over a black grand piano and then lets the camera takes its time working up and down as it admires her fantastic body. She gives a little peek at her pussy and plays with her stockings a little before diddling herself a little more and stripping off her panties. She moves up to the top of the piano to work on her pussy with a silver dildo. After satisfying herself with the toy, Cassia bids ďyouĒ goodbye while inviting you back for more later.
Daniel Dakota and Cassia team up to make this one heck of a great first impression as he takes over the Stocking Secrets series. Cassia is hotter than hell and Dakota seems to know just how to move the camera to completely absorb her fantastic figure. Cassia also knows just how to play to Danielís camera, and makes this one smoking start!
|Scene 2 - Mackenzie Mack|
Mackenzie starts things out in a black top, thong, and garter belt with a pink skirt and fishnet stockings and clear fuck-me heels. She bends over and rolls around on a bed to show off her outfit and great body before stripping off her shoes. After playing with her stockings a bit, Mackenzie gives a bit more of a show and then slides off her stockings while making sure to showcase her luscious legs. Her thong follows soon after, and after letting her fingers wander around a bit down under, Mackenzie works on her pussy with a pink vibe. After fucking herself a little with her toy, Mackenzie slides her stockings back on. She plays with herself lightly a bit more, teases the camera a little, and then walks off after commenting on how she hopes to see ďyouĒ again.
Although Cassia set the bar very high in the opening scene, Mackenzie doesnít seem the least bit scared of her here. She turns out every bit as good of a scene, and tweaks the mood just a little. While Cassia came off as a high class tease in the opening scene, Mackenzie goes for a down and dirty girl next door with a bit of urban flair here. She looks like sheís had a bit of work done on her, but she still looks darn good and knows how to work to the camera. This is another smoking hot scene and doesnít slow down from the pace the opening scene set.
|Scene 3 - Cassia Riley|
Cassia returns, this time in a black mesh top and panties with clear and black shoes, a black garter belt, and wide pink stockings that almost look like theyíre made from a random weave. She lies back in a corner couch and diddles herself gently before removing her shoes. Cassia continues to diddle herself lightly as she strips off her stockings, and uses her stockings to massage her pussy as well before focusing fully on rubbing her nub with her fingers. She plays with herself standing up and then lies back on the couch to play. Finally, Cassia reminds you of her name before the camera pans away.
Cassia continues things very nicely here. She maintains a little of the highbrow feel of her previous scene while coming down a little as well. Her scene here is a little softer, yet still maintains the heat the movie had going for it so far. I like that she shows off a bit more here and keeps things a little more laid back. This is yet another very hot scene.
|Scene 4 - Mackenzie Mack|
Mackenzie starts out the final scene in a white lacy top with white fishnet stockings, a white garter belt, and clear shoes walking into an impressive bathroom complete with a bubble bath ready to go, a warm fireplace, and plenty of windows to keep the neighbors happy. She squats down to rub her pussy before taking the time to completely show off her ass. Mackenzie slides off her shoes and rubs her feet and hands up and down her stockings and continues to rub her stockings after stepping into the bubble bath. She rubs the bubbles all around her body and playfully slides her stockings off before going back to lightly playing with her pussy. Finally, the camera moves away as Mackenzie talks about how good she is at being bad.
This is a great scene to finish things with. Mackenzie plays to the camera very well and the masturbation is nicely drawn out to a great tease. This feels like a slightly more high class scene due to the location, just like with Cassiaís opening scene, and it does a great job of giving Mackenzie a little more depth. Not surprisingly, this is an extremely hot scene.
Iíll admit to being a little nervous going into Stocking Secrets 11 with Daniel Dakota taking over for Kira Eggers after the great job sheís done on most of the previous installments of this series. Iíll also admit that he completely blew me away here with the help of Cassia and Mackenzie. The girls have a nice difference in looks, yet they both do an equally great job of playing to Dakotaís camera. He mixes up the angles very well here, and I donít think there was a single shot in the entire movie that didnít have me in awe. He also mixes up the moods a little more, and the movie was definitely helped by moving into a well decorated house rather than taking place in the hotel rooms that some of the earlier episodes were shot in. Stocking Secrets 11 also picks things up a little from previous episodes by having the girls play with themselves a little more and not having them completely strip down, but thatís just fine here. My only complaint with the entire movie is nearly forty one minutes into the movie, when the music becomes a little jumbled, almost like somebody bumped the wrong button when mixing it. Yes, thatís a darn minor and nitpicky complaint, but thatís just how strong Stocking Secrets 11 came off for me. If youíre at all a fan of this series, or even just curious about it, donít pass Stocking Secrets 11 by!
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Down Your Throat, Killer Grip, My Playtoy 3, Stocking Secrets 4, Stocking Secrets 5, and Stocking Secrets 9. The photo gallery lasts nearly three and a half minutes with about ten seconds per great looking snapshot. Thereís also internet information and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts a few mere seconds short of a half hour. Cassia starts things out posing for the camera while chatting with the camera and looking every bit as hot and tempting as in the movie. It moves on through shooting Cassiaís scenes, and captures plenty of banter with her. Of course Mackenzie is next, whoís more than eager to share a few laughs as she tries to finish her scenes. It shows Daniel Dakota having a fairly relaxed set and the girls as having plenty of personality to go with their great looks. This is a very nicely done behind the scenes featurette and is definitely worth checking out.
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. This one is well worth the money. The movie is probably the best yet from the series, the technical aspects are nicely done, and thereís some very nice effort put into the extras. This is a great DVD thatís definitely worth checking out!
Note to Smash Pictures: Itís easy to see why youíve let Daniel Dakota continue this series! I sure hope he can keep it going as well as his debut on it here!
