The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced without any background noise or other distractions. The video is also well done, and presented in the non-anamorphic widescreen format. Thereís a couple minor lighting problems, but for the most part itís nicely lit and free of grain.
Music: The music is a bit on the loud side, but it works here since it drops back a little when the girls talk. It has a very nice and sexy feel, and best of all doesnít seem like typical porno music.
Disc Complaints & Problems: The DVD has some very funky authoring for the movie portion. Each scene has its own title on the DVD, and for some reason they wonít advance. When it hits the end of the title, it restarts the last chapter in the scene (thereís three chapters per scene). So every time the scene ends, you have to go through the chapter menu and get to the next chapter that way. The only time this didnít happen was on the last scene, where the DVD actually went back to the main menu. Thereís no time stamp for the movie, and each chapter also resets the time clock. This makes things a little funky, especially if you want to go back to a certain instance in the movie. Thankfully Smash has plenty of chapter breaks in the movie. This is all more than a little irritating and sloppy, and not what I expect from Smash. Iím deducting a half point from the overall score because of it.
Menus: The main menu gives a very good first impression. It works together the boxcover, a little animation, and a couple photos of the stars. The chapter menu is split between the two girls, and you select which one youíd like based on a photo of each girl and their name on the main menu. From there youíre taken to a secondary menu that lets you choose between three places in the scene for that girl and allows you to move from scene to scene to select where youíd like to go in the movie. Thereís a lot of care showing here, and it definitely gave me a very good first impression.
The FeatureThe Stocking Secrets series goes with a very simple idea. You start with a gorgeous woman wearing a sexy outfit. It might be 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 bottle blondes take over with Bella Starr and Erin Moore.
|Scene 1 - Bella Starr|
Bella starts things off laying on the bed talking with her boyfriend about how she misses him. She tells him that she bought a new outfit to make herself feel better and then rolls around a bit on the bed to show it off. Sheís wearing a pink bra with black outline, pink panties, a light green short skirt, pink and white striped stockings, and pink fuck-me shoes. She slides off her bra to show her great natural rack followed by her skirt. She plays with herself through and inside her panties before sliding them off to show her completely shaven slit. She lightly masturbates before sliding off her stockings and playing around with them a little. Finally, Bella wishes you goodbye while running one of her stockings around her leg and ass and blowing a kiss.
Iíll admit that I didnít have a lot of hope for Bella from her front cover shot. She reminded me of a Carmen Luvana clone, and Carmen just doesnít do a lot for me. A few minutes in, I was more than happy with Bella. She throws out just enough lines to raise things up a notch and keeps a nice pace through the scene. I was a little surprised with how much light masturbation there was here, but Iím not complaining. This is a nice start to the movie.
|Scene 2 - Erin Moore|
Erin shows up wearing a tight pink shirt, a plaid skirt and tie, and black fishnet stockings talking about how she was sent home from school for not wearing panties. She removes the tie and opens her shirt to point out that she forgot to wear a bra as well with a naughty smile. She removes her shirt and slides up onto a table so you can see her nicely shaven pussy. Erinís stockings come off next before she lightly plays with herself. She breaks out the vibrator she brought to show and tell least week that got her sent home, and lightly runs it around her pussy without ever sliding it in. Erin slides her skirt off next and runs the vibe around a little more before saying how she has to head to bed so she can go to school again in the morning.
This is a fun little scene. Erin looks like sheís a few years past school, but she gives it such a naughty and fun feeling that I couldnít help but like it. Of course, it doesnít hurt that sheís darn cute with a great body and knows how to work her eyes. The toy was a nice addition here, but I can see some people whining about her not fucking herself raw with it. Personally, I think it fits the feel of the series extremely well as is. This is another very nice scene.
|Scene 3 - Bella Starr|
Bella heads to the shower for her second scene. She makes sure to lather herself up well with her Luffa and lets her fingers rub it in well down on her dirty parts. When she magically dries herself off, she sits on the stool and slides on a pair of black stockings. She follows them up with a sexy pair of fuck me pumps before grabbing an artistic glass vibe. Bella sucks it and licks her way around it before sliding it into her pussy. Finally, she slides a silky black shirt on and waves goodbye as she walks out the door.
This is an excellent scene! Bella does a fantastic job with the tease portion, but the biggest surprise here was the actual masturbation. I love how the scene slowly progresses through the shower, dressing, and masturbation and think that Bella (and of course, Kira) do a great job keeping the scene flowing at a great pace. This is a smoking scene!
|Scene 4 - Erin Moore|
Erin starts out the final scene looking out a window wearing a little black lingerie. She sits back in a chair by the window and slips out of her lingerie so sheís only in her black stockings and panties. She shows off her feet while offering them to be played with before sliding off the other stocking and rubbing it across her great natural body. She lets her hands wander a little and removes her panties before moving back in front of the window to show the world what sheís got. She lightly plays with her pussy before the scene finally comes to a close.
This is another very nice scene. Erin does a nice job through the tease and gentle masturbation. The only thing that hurts it is some of her lines, which just seem corny. I donít need to hear things like a fairly flat ďNow Iím really turned on.Ē. A little light moaning will do just fine. This is the weakest scene in the movie, but still well above average.
The Stocking Secrets series has been my favorite series from Smash Pictures for quite a while, and Stocking Secrets 7 doesnít hurt that ranking at all. If anything, it strengthens it. Kira shows some nice improvement with this episode by adding things like the shower scene and the masturbation segment. The shower scene is easily the hottest in the movie, with Bella doing a great job of showing why sheís the cover girl. I was a little disappointed at first that Kira decided to go with two bottle blondes this time rather than mixing things up with something like a blonde and a brunette as sheís done in the past, but the girls here set themselves apart with their attitude. While Bella sets herself up as loving with a bit of class, Erin shows herself off as the naughty girl with the slutty side. Itís a nice difference that helps the release out even more than having girls with two different colored hair. Stocking Secrets 7 is another great release from Kira Eggers and Smash and has me more than looking forward to yet another installment.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts over five minutes with roughly eight seconds per very nice looking snapshot. Trailers are included for Stocking Secrets 4, Legal Skin 15, Camel Toe Perversions, Down Your Throat 3, White Wife Black Cock 3, and Shitty Shitty Bang Bang. Thereís also website information and a bonus scene.
|Bonus Scene - Cytherea and Brian Heston|
The bonus scene comes from Secrets Exposed. Cytherea starts things out talking about doing something sheíd always wanted to do but never had the guts, nude modeling. She finally gives in to her urges with photographer Brain Heston. Brian has Cytherea slowly work out of her clothes while he snaps photos, and repeatedly checks to make sure she comfortable. When she comments on how hot it is up there, Brian takes the opportunity to tell her that it might be more than the lights, and moves down to tongue and finger her pussy. Cytherea reciprocates with some nice knob gobbling, complete with plenty of eyes and stroking, before climbing up for the mandatory reverse cowgirl. They keep things going missionary and doggie style before Cytherea hops down to take a good facial. She gets right in there to catch almost all of it in her mouth and even plays with it before the camera pans away and fades out.
This is a pretty good scene, and a bit of a surprise as well. Cytherea is well known squirting abilities, and none of that comes out here. Her energy and vocals, however, do come out quite well. Iím not sure if Brian wasnít able to get Cytherea up to squirting or not, but he does do a pretty good job. My only complaint here is that the camera work and editing were off from my tastes. Thereís quite a few close ups and I frequently found myself wanting to see something other than what I was shown.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: All girl, tease, stockings, masturbation, and toys
Raincoat Factor: Very high if you donít need sex, very low if you do.
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 oneís well worth the money. Itís sexy as heck without having any actual sex. The technical aspects are nicely done and thereís even a bit of effort put into the extras. This is a very nice DVD.
Note to Smash Pictures: Thanks for continuing this series! Itís great to see you supporting the widescreen format, but please take your support all the way to anamorphic widescreen in the future! Iíll leave off any further whining about the authoring after seeing a more recent release where everything seems to be fixed and improved.
