Tony looking at Dana hungrily.
Date of Production: 10/7/2007
Extra's: The best extra was the 9:04 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Jamal Johnson (and the lead of the show) that starred Stoya (with weird music in the background) as edited by Drax. She showed how happy she was about working with Erik Everhard (for another movie) as well as those in this cast, even Dana coming across as pleasant as the cast was given some love. There was also a photogallery, a slide show, a pop shot recap from the scenes, a biography for Stoya, and three trailers to Pirates II, Island Fever 4, and Icon.
Tori Black was cute too.
Stoya's intense look indicated what she wanted from Mick.
Audio/Video Quality: Stoya: Sexual Freak 7 was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Celeste for Digital Playground. The high end equipment and skilled crew of regulars assisted director of photography Robby to make this release another gonzo love fest more than perhaps any of his collaborations with the director to date. In fact, the technical matters and editing by Kurt Tortcher aside, had this been presented to me under a “name that director” guise, I would have selected Robby for virtually every scene. The lighting was very solid here, reducing the grain, video noise, and other defects that sometimes arise in making porn on a budget. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes; the composition favoring the ladies and looking like Robby had no constraints this time. The DVD mastering revealing no compression artifacts, with the bitrate for the visuals hovering around the mid to upper 6 Mbps this time with few flaws but not as low in resolution as previous efforts in related series. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English using a 384 Kbps bitrate; twice that of most porn made these days, with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. There wasn't much separation between the channels, if any outside of the intermittent music, but the ladies were always clearly heard here.

Body of Review: Stoya has been described by some in the press as a “force of nature” of late thanks not only to the limited scenes of hers that have come out recently but her entire manner of taking life by the horns and milking it for what it’s worth. Given the strength of her personality, imagine my gut feeling when I saw her next release coming out at the end of the month would be from director Celeste. While I’ve liked some of the director’s stuff in the past, it so very often relied on camera tricks, erotica styled action, and a host of other things I generally don’t like at Digital Playground, that I wondered if Stoya would make a difference when her next release, the upcoming Stoya: Sexual Freak 7, came out later this month. Having last seen the series in Sexual Freak 5, I crossed my fingers but the supporting cast had some pretty reliable people in it as well and the word on the street was that Robby was going to interject more of his own personality into the fuck flick so I braced myself for the worst and hoped for the best when the early screener made it my way. If you’re interested in the breakdown of scenes by cast and action, here you go; noting that no condoms were used and a lot of pleasant surprises were in store for me:
Scene One: Stoya, the darling of porn at the moment and hotty featured on the front cover, was up first in a scene with Charles Dera. He was her “pretty boy” captive, Stoya asserting her dominance over the guy as he was bound in the bed. She teased him as he struggled with his bonds, her lithe body rubbing over his as she cranked up the sexual chemistry between them. Reminding me a bit of the mainstream movie Misery, she took her time toying with him before getting down to business; the couple playing the “name game” as her mercurial emotions worked perfectly for the setting. The humor of the situation was cute enough but by the time the dramatic part of their dynamic was fully established (you have to see it or I’d ruin it for you), he was ready to tear into her at full speed; her red fishnet stockings and tiny outfit not a hindrance to his vaginal pounding. She blew him less enthusiastically than I expected but well within the expected parameters of the scenario; the rough sex getting her off as they continued to work it for the camera. Hair pulling, spanking, and some really impaling riding by Stoya were all a part of the fine coupling here; the population pudding gracing her ass when he was through. By the end of the scene, my initial concerns about the movie were cast aside, proving Stoya’s love of sex took care of it all. On a side note, I’m told Charles has retired from porn and it wouldn’t surprise me if he claimed Stoya wore him out. Whew!
Scene Two: Riley Evans, a curvy blond built more like I tend to appreciate the ladies, was up next with Ben English and Jerry. Forgetting about how much she likes “Ben & Jerry” for the moment, Ben left and she went right to playing with Jerry who played her lover. They took the show to the bed and undressed, the oral barely getting underway before Ben came back in an angered state of mind. Ben verbally tore into her and decided to join them when they continued, his cock appreciating her lips wrapped around it before Ben started rubbing her privates. She relished getting to take both of them on at the same time; Ben porking her cookie from behind in doggy while Jerry continued to get a BJ. She panted at the way she was being handled with the men taking turns using her mouth and pussy until it was time to titty fuck a load to her face and take the second one after more sweaty boning. While it lacked the chemistry of the first scene, the energy levels were solid and it suited the movie to show the trio at work.
Scene Three: Franchezca Valentina, a cute brunette with red highlights, was up next on the couch with bald Johnny Sins, as they played nicely together. She was nearly as pale as Stoya but had fleshier curves with her panties riding up her ass crack really well. She wanted to play some light BDSM games too, the plastic handcuffs doing little to secure Johnny while she went kind of crazy during some solo action. The mental stability (of her character) was probably patterned after the gal in the next scene but it was all in good fun when she climbed into his lap to get him aroused. Rubbed her semi-clad body against his was all it took to elevate the mood with both of them orally gratifying each other nicely before they began to fuck vaginally. I liked that she actively engaged him sexually and did some solid PTM before he busted a nut on her crotch. It wasn’t exactly as good a scene as possible but it did have a lot of replay value for me. Yum!
Scene Four: Dana DeArmond, one of the more interesting personalities in the business these days, was up next with Tony De Sergio and Mick Blue. While the body of her work in recent times has been inconsistent, she has a fleshy enough ass to please most and the lack of personal limits needed to prove experience can beat youth in the gonzo game. The scenario this time had her treating the men like pets, teasing them with sexual favors as a means of control (a common enough dynamic these days, yes?), rewarding them when they did as she demanded rather than play towards the far fetched idea that she could physically out power them. The tease wasn’t as good as in most of the other scenes since she kept her clothing on too long and the men interacted too much with each other but I give all of them credit for not playing it too strictly either. She blew them well enough and she received some oral as a reward before getting hammered like crazy by the men. Once the sex truly started, Dana shined as the pale skinned matron of alt-porn proved her oral skills were up to speed. She was probably the most passive cock rider of the show this time but given the vaginal and anal pounding she was taking, expecting her to impale herself as though into the action might have been too much to ask of her. In all then, Dana did a capable job and received her reward at the end of the scene; the wads coating her mouth as she made cat noises (meowing) before she swallowed them down.
Scene Five: Tori Black, a younger cutie with dark hair, was up next as she asked Rico Strong if she could use his shower for a date. He worried that he was being set up but she took her time seducing him, the guy sniffing at her clothing as she took the shower in question. Once cleaned up, she walked in on him and dropped her towel, rubbing her naked body on his as she kissed him; grinding her hips into his lap like a first rate stripper in search of tips. She then provided him with some fine oral loving as she wrapped her lips around his cock and licked his balls; liking it when he started spanking her sweet little ass. The weakness here was the same as the last scene though since she was far too passive a cock rider and let him do all of the work. He jerked off the semen to her face as she sucked his balls, inviting his load into her mouth to partially make up for it. I don’t know how much she liked Rico in particular but she showed no apprehension towards sucking black dicks, hopefully living up to her potential someday soon.
Scene Six: Stoya, looking cute as ever, then finished up the movie by taking on Mick Blue in a living room setting. They made out and she wanted him to dance for her, his abilities about as limited as mine; causing her to laugh which hurt his feelings. She lied and said how good it was, even handing him money before spreading her legs for him to chow down on; Stoya not showing as much enthusiasm with studly Mick as she did with Charles but still more than most of her peers in the movie by a wide margin. Her glowing white skin compared interestingly to his tanned body but his oral talents seemed to work wonders for the lady, reminding me of how much he claimed to like doing the scene when we chatted in Vegas recently. She had fun with the action too, blowing him and rubbing him with her foot; the frisky lass leaving the oral behind to really hammer herself on his lap while aggressively riding his rod. One of the cameras used to capture the scene seemed to be improperly set (just enough to bug me) but I imagine it was tough getting the contrast between her almost radiant white skin, Mick’s tan, and the brown couch as the flexible young lady went to town. She did some more oral on him while he ate her spread cookie out; a few more vaginal positions tackled before he followed her request to cum in her mouth with some post coital sucking as his reward. Whoa!
Summary: Stoya: Sexual Freak 7 by director Celeste for Digital Playground showed once more that Stoya was indeed a “force of nature” as has been bandied about online of late. Stoya rocked in both of her scenes and the others did a decent job as well, if somewhat paling by comparison. The technical values were solidly in the “Robby does gonzo” quality area and the former quirks employed in Celeste movies were discarded in favor of this more appealing set of characteristics, making this lengthy flick well worth a rating of Recommended or better. Fans of Stoya should consider it a “must have” of course but ultimately, her scenes were the best thing about the movie and the others did not quite measure up enough to elevate the rating. In short, Stoya: Sexual Freak 7 surpassed my expectations enough that I will never doubt her abilities again. Good job!
