The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Iíve been extremely impressed with everything Iíve seen from this series. Itís impossible for me not to have high expectations here.
Initial Reaction: Although it has a couple minor missteps, itís still a great movie and disc.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who likes solo women putting on a show and being sexy
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting actual sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. There isnít a lot of audio from the performers, but itís normally pretty good. The dialogue is normally easy to hear, but there are a couple places where itís a bit hollow or hard to hear. Thereís also a place or two when the audio stumbles in what feels like a rough edit and a bit of dubbing. The video is very nicely done. Itís free of grain and nicely lit, although there are a few focuses which go a bit fast. This is a great looking and very good sounding DVD, and doesnít have any of the audio problems which have been plaguing Smashís DVDs previously.
Music: The music is a bit on the loud side, but works well. It has a unique feel and is a little on the hard side of things. I donít know that it really raises the scenes up, but I think it helps them more than it hinders them.
Disc Complaints: Thereís no time stamp for the feature (which is really odd because the photo gallery has a time stamp). This is one of the little things that always stands out to me. Quite often I donít have the time to watch a full movie, and I also like to jump back to specific spots in a movie. With a time stamp you can jump to specific instances in a movie and with many players leave a movie to come back to the specific instant you left off. Without the time stamp youíre stuck going back to the chapter breaks only. From what I understand it takes almost no effort or cost to include a time stamp, so whenever I come across a DVD without one it always seems a bit cheap to me or like whoever made the DVD didnít really care that much about the people who are buying it. I love what Iíve seen from Smash and know they care about the customer, so I really hope to see this change in the future!
Menus: The menus are simple, but nicely done. The main menu has a little animation which gives a good first impression. You can choose a scene from the main menu, and are then given a secondary menu to choose what part of the scene 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. This time, the girls are the gorgeous blonde Tall Goddess and dark and exotic Cleopatra.
|Scene 1 - Tall Goddess|
Blonde Tall Goddess starts things out in some nice white lingerie and stockings. She unfastens her stockings and then slowly removes her lingerie. She takes plenty of time to tease and smile at the camera before getting down to just her stockings. TG teases you with taking off her stockings, and then breaks out a silver vibe to play with instead. She breaks from playing just long enough to take off her stockings, and then goes back to teasing and pleasing herself with her toy. Finally, the scene fades out as TG sucks her toy with a nasty smile.
This is a great opening scene. Tall Goddess plays to the camera extremely well and has a smoking body. As usual, the sceneís pace is extremely well done and draws things out as far as it can to build up tension in the scene. This is an excellent scene.
|Scene 2 - Cleopatra|
Cleopatra starts things out in some sexy black lingerie and stockings. She lets her big fat titties out to play before sliding out of her panties and playing with her smoothly shaven slit a bit. She continues to strip down a little and breaks out her purple vibe to work herself over with until the scene fades out.
This is an okay scene. Cleopatra has a nice body and a soft voice, but she often seems a bit lost. She looks like she needs to read cue cards for the dialogue and seems a bit lost several times in the scene. Cleopatra does a decent job, it just stumbles a bit as the scene goes on.
|Scene 3 - Tall Goddess|
Tall Goddess returns, this time wearing a playful holey orange top with pink stockings and yellow and pink shoes. She rips her outfit apart to reveal her amazing body and then goes to work on it. She starts out with her fingers before going to a pink and white vibe. Finally she sucks it clean to bring things to a close.
This is another excellent scene. Tall Goddess has a great playful manner which really helps her scenes soar to the top here. Theyíre fun and sexy, and this one once again drew me in almost completely.
|Scene 4 - Cleopatra|
Cleopatra starts out the final scene in a pair of fishnets with a black and pink see through bra and panties. She slowly strips out of her outfit and down to her panties, taking the time to play with her stockings as she goes. Finally she breaks out her favorite purple vibe and puts it to work on her pussy. After plenty of play, she sucks her toy clean and lets the camera pan out and away.
This is a pretty good scene. Cleopatra keeps things movie and doesnít look as lost as she did in her previous scene. It moves along nicely and Cleopatra brings a kind of natural feel to the scene thatís fairly likeable. I donít think it comes close to comparing to the smoking jobs that Tall Goddess did, but itís a different feeling scene that works pretty well.
Kira Eggers does a great job with Stocking Secrets 5. I like how she balanced the look of the girls by going with a thin blonde and a full figured brunette. The girls each have their own style, which is also nice, but Tall Goddess easily stole the show for me. She knows just how to play to the camera and has a playful and naughty feel which knocked me out. Cleopatraís feel is a bit more natural, but it stumbled a couple times and didnít do as well working for me because of it. The scenes are also nicely paced, and donít rush things in getting to the masturbation. Thereís plenty of teasing here, and the masturbation just seems like the icing on the cake. Stocking Secrets 5 is another great addition to a great series, and is well worth checking out despite a short running time.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Legal Skin 14, Stocking Secrets 4, Camel Toe Perversions, White Wife Black Cock 3, Shitty Shitty Bang Bang, and Down Your Throat 3. The photo gallery lasts nearly six minutes with roughly ten seconds per very nice looking snapshot. Thereís also website information and a bonus scene.
|Bonus Scene - Jana Cova|
Jana Cova stars in the bonus scene, which comes from Stocking Secrets 1. She starts out her final tease talking on the phone in a black and pink silky nightie. She admires herself in the mirror while stripping down and diddling herself. Once again, Jana ends things blowing a kiss to the camera.
Not surprisingly, this is another extremely hot tease scene. I love how Jana starts out on the phone rather than just waiting for the viewer. The mirror also works very well, and makes it almost like sheís practicing on herself to give some lucky person a very special show later. Jana smokes in this scene and shows just how worthwhile this entire series is.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: All girl, tease, and masturbation (light)
Raincoat Factor: Very high if you like to be teased, very low if you donít
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 is another very nice entry in a very nice series. The action is hot, the technical aspects are very nicely done, and thereís even a bonus scene in the extras. This is a very nicely done DVD.
Note to Smash Pictures: I hope you keep this series coming regularly and that your discs keep improving at the rate they have been. Youíre looking great lately!
