The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very well done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I donít think I noticed any background noises. The video is also very well done. It almost has a touch of softness, which gives it just a little more of an artistic feel. The lighting is handled nicely, but there are a few times when the camera work feels a little sharp.
Music: The music has a light and often sexy or sensual feel that works great for the scenes. It sometimes seems a little loud and covers up the girls when they talk, but it has a great style.
Menus: The menus are very nicely done. The main menu combines a bit of the movie with some nice animation to give a very nice first impression. The chapter menus show even more care. After letting you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the name of the girl in the scene, youíre allowed 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 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 you get beautiful brunette Aimee and dyed redhead Justine.
|Scene 1 - Aimee Sweet|
Aimee starts things out sitting on a clear bar chair wearing a black corset, stockings, and shoes with a satin magenta shirt and panties. She runs her hands up and down her legs and around her body before playing with her panties a little. She unbuttons her shirt and pulls down her corset to give a little peek at her perky pink puffs before going back down to lightly rub her pussy. She slowly strips off her clothes, including her shoes and stockings, and gives just the right amount of smiles, looks, and comments. She pulls her stockings back up and plays with her nipples gently before ripping her stockings up, striking a few poses, and making a few final comments.
This is a nice scene to open things with. I love the outfit Aimee starts out with, and she keeps a great pace stripping down. Kira helps things out doing a nice job varying the camera angles throughout the scene, and doesnít really neglect a single part of Aimeeís wonderful frame. The only thing that didnít quite work about this scene for me was some of Aimeeís comments, which felt a little insincere. Itís still a hot tease scene, but something about it just seemed slightly off for me.
|Scene 2 - Justine Joli|
Justine starts things out at the top of a stairwell wearing a black dress and pointy high heeled shoes with beige stockings with a black stripe up the back. She sucks the spiked heels on her shoes while talking about her feet and toes and playing with them. She strips out of her dress, followed by her black and white bra and panties. Justine rips open her stockings to show that thereís nothing underneath them and gently diddles herself while occasionally sucking her toes. She breaks out a purple jelly dildo and bends over to fuck herself before sitting up and letting her foot work the dildo in and out of her pussy. Finally, she walks back upstairs.
This is an extremely hot scene. Justine does a fantastic job of playing to the camera, and does so in a manner that doesnít seem forceful or imposing. Instead it feels like sheís playing to and for you from a vulnerable position. It definitely raises the scene to a higher level, and I enjoyed the scene tremendously because of it.
|Scene 3 - Aimee Sweet|
Aimee starts out her second scene walking down a green hallway wearing a black skirt and shoes, nude nylons, a blue shirt with white stripes and cuffs, and a white bra thatís barely showing out the top of her shirt. She moves to her knees and crawls around the floor a little while she opens her shirt and slides her skirt up and down to give flashes of the goodness that rest inside. She slides off her skirt and shirt, followed by her white bra and her stockings as Aimee takes her time to slowly slide each off and tease it for as much effect as she can. She fianlly gets around to sliding her panties off, and gently rubs her pussy after itís free. After itís all done, she throws her stockings at you before the camera heads out.
This is another very hot scene from Aimee. She definitely knows how to pace a tease, and plays to the camera extremely well. Sheís a heck of a cute girl, but some of the positions showed what looked like a Ďbaby stomachí and I didnít think the spade tattoo on her stomach was at all flattering. She still does a great job and makes the scene very worthwhile, but a couple of the positions could have been changed to have been much more flattering towards Aimee.
|Scene 4 - Justine Joli|
Justine starts out the final scene only wearing a pink sweater and a pair of nude pantyhose. She plays with her feet a little, including pulling them up to lick her toes, before sliding off her sweater and later, her stockings. Finally, she slides off her sheer white panties before sliding her pantyhose back on. Justine runs her hands back around her fantastic natural body while giving the camera some very nice natural smiles. Finally, she passes along some sweet sympathies.
Not surprisingly, Justine delivers another great tease for the final scene. Itís a bit shorter than the previous scene, as well as being slightly softer in tone. Justine still looks fantastic and moves the scene along very nicely, but part of me was kind of hoping for something a little more. I canít help but think that the previous scene of Justineís was slightly stronger, and I think it might have helped finish the movie on a slightly higher note if the two scenes would have been reversed. Regardless, this is still a strong scene and finishes the movie nicely.
Stocking Secrets 9 is a very nice addition to the series. It has a couple very minor stumbling points, most of which revolves around the sincerity of some of the lines during the tease. Both Justine and Aimee look fantastic, and the only fault I can find with either of them is Justineís tattoo and a bit of what looks like a baby tummy (which only show up in one position for a few seconds). The teases are handled very nicely, and move at a very nice pace as well as mixing in some nice lines. I know that the Stocking Secrets series isnít for everybody, but I really enjoy the sensuality of the scenes as well as the overall tease aspect. Stocking Secrets 9 continues that nicely, and I think fans of the series will be very happy with it.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts a little over two minutes with roughly ten seconds per great looking snapshot. Trailers are included for Cum Catchers, Camel Toe Perversions, Easy Prey, Legal Skin 16, My Playtoy 3, and Shitty Shitty Bang Bang. Thereís also weblinks.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: All girl, tease, masturbation, and toys
Raincoat Factor: High
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 definitely worth the low end, but due to the soft feel of the movie if you havenít seen something from the series you might want to rent an episode before buying one. The technical aspects show some very nice care, but the extras lack a bit here.
Note to Smash Pictures: Itís great to see how much care youíve put into the little things like the DVD menus, but something like a bonus scene or especially a couple interviews or a behind the scenes featurette would have really finished off this one nicely.
