Blu-Ray vs. DVD: The Blu-Ray has the same offerings as the DVD with the higher quality audio and video the format allows. It also has a few more trailers and a different menu style that works well for me.
Running Time: 118 min.
Production Date: 11 / 15 / 2011
Director: Robby D.
Cast: April O'Neil, Charley Chase, Riley Steele, Tasha Reign, Erik Everhard, Manuel Ferrara, Mick Blue, and Rocco Reed
Audio /Video Quality: As usual with Digital Playground, there's some very nice effort put into the technical aspects. The audio is a little on the quiet side, but is clear and well balanced. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks very nice. It's clear, well lit, and has a very solid care behind the camera.
The Movie: When Riley buys a stripper pole for her bedroom, nobody expects it to make the change it does. It drives a wedge between her and hubby Rocco, and even between her and her friends that don't like it. Hopefully Riley will notice the change before she's alone with her pole.
|Scene 1 – Riley Steele and Erik Everhard|
After Erik installs the stripper pole in Riley's house, he talks her into giving it a spin and soon after is kicking back on the couch as she gives him a show. He moves in to play with Riley's pussy and kiss her from behind before she drops down and crawls into the next room close behind Erik. She mouths his manhood with a bit of face fucking worked in, and even lets Erik use his belt as a leash on her. They continue to work on each other orally on the couch before Erik moves up to fuck Riley missionary style and spoon her. She drops down to let him fuck her face before taking it doggie style, and Erik mixes in a little finger play as they move on in both cowgirls. They work in a little more cocksucking and doggie fucking as they make their way to Erik giving Riley a nice pop in her eager mouth.
|Scene 2 – Charley Chase and Manuel Ferrara|
When Manuel finds Charley working some of her moves on a mop wearing her French maid outfit, he's more than pleased and soon after has her in his arms to kiss her and play with her pussy. He sets her down to eat her from behind after she leaps into his arms, and continues to eat her after she turns around and lays down. Charley writhes around on his face and eagerly mouths his manhood before they get busy in doggie and the cowgirls. Manuel also spoons Charley before shooting an impressive load on her stomach.
|Scene 3 – Riley Steele and Rocco Reed|
While Riley wants to give Rocco a little show with the pole, he's not interested and just can't understand it. He can, however, figure out that when his hottie of a woman moves in with a kiss he better return some affection and starts running his hands around to play with her as they kiss. Riley leans over to mouth his manhood before riding it cowgirl style and letting him spoon her. They keep things going in doggie and missionary before Rocco rolls around to spoon her and take her in doggie again. Finally Rocco pulls out to pop on Riley's great ass.
|Scene 4 – April O'Neil and Mick Blue|
When Mick hears hot brunette April come home and she doesn't say anything to him, he quickly follows her to the bedroom to make sure everything's okay and give her a foot massage. They kiss and share a few laughs talking about the stripper pole as Mick's hands start wandering and he undresses her. He moves down to eat April's box before she happily mouths his manhood in return. Mick mounts April missionary style before spooning her and letting her roll on top for a reverse cowgirl ride with a little more oral action mixed in. They continue to mix in some nice oral for each other as they roll around in doggie and cowgirl before April finishes things with a very impressive facial.
|Scene 5 – Tasha Reign and Erik Everhard|
After installing the pole for blonde hottie Tasha, Erik gets her to give him a lap dance with the touching going both ways. After she bounces around on his lap and strips down a bit, Erik lays her back to give her a bit of oral appreciation for a job well done. He stands up for Tasha to mouth his manhood before she slides herself onto his cock cowgirl style. Erik lays her back for a bit of missionary work and slides behind her for some spooning. Tasha rolls on top for a reverse cowgirl ride and lets Erik take her in doggie before finally dropping down to take a nice dose of his dick droppings over her pretty face.
Stripper Pole is a nicely done feature. As usual with Digital Playground it's a bit on the light side story-wise, but this one seems to have a bit more depth. I really liked how it went from a very playful and fun start to something a bit darker developing in the story, and the cast plays it all nicely. It should come as no surprise that the sex is more than solid with the cast assembled here, led by the lovely Riley Steele. Riley's scene with Rocco is good, but her opening scene with Erik is nothing short of fantastic and with a nice touch of domination that one doesn't see come out of the Playground too often. Charley turns out a very hot scene with Manuel that's a little on the short side, and April turns out a very nice scene with Mick topped off by a facial that had to be a few days in the making. Finally you get one more scene as Erik returns to take on hottie Tasha in a very nice scene to close out the movie. Stripper Pole is a touch more complex than your typical Digital Playground release due to some of the darker nature of the movie, but still works well with a solid cast and plenty of hot action.
The Extras: Trailers are included for eight other Digital Playground releases. The photo gallery lasts about three and three quarter minutes. There's also a behind the scenes featurette and company information.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts just under twelve minutes. Riley and Erik each start things out with a bit of fun before Charley shows off in a sexy maid outfit for the movie. There's also a bit of Riley trying to shoot hoops before Tasha poses for her pretty girls and chats with Jamall including porn, some of her favorite performers to work with, and sex. You also get a bit of fun with April and the car as well as her posing for stills and chatting with Jamall. Finally you get a few shots around the set to close things out. This is a nice little featurette. You get plenty of eye candy and some nice personality from the cast to make this a very enjoyable little extra. This is a nice addition to the overall release.
Condom Usage: None
Final Thoughts: If you're looking for a little darker feature or are a Riley Steele fan, you should find plenty to like here.
Note to Digital Playground: It's nice to see you get a little darker and more complex here. I hope you go down this road again.
