Cast: Stoya, Erik Everhard, Nika Noir, Danny Mountain, James Deen, Madison Scott, Scott Nails, Priva, Johnny Sins, Jerry
Length: 119:21 minutes
Date of Production: 6/14/2008
Extras: The best extra was the 10:37 minute long Behind the Scenes feature shot by Jamal Johnson and edited by Evul Atheng. There were some pop up videos and special effects, little bits of nudity and sex included for those who care. Jamal added some fun too but it was decidedly lightweight compared to the better efforts of Nick P. (Stoya trying to out gross everyone at the very end of it). There were also 8 trailers, a slide show and a photogallery; not much but what I expected overall.
Audio/Video Quality: Stoya Heat was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground. The standard definition version was in 480p resolution with Stoya's scenes looking particularly sharp and crisp. She photographs well and the limited amount of post production wizardry (as well as filters and other camera tricks) made her look fantastic (especially compared to some of the more arty farty shows the company offers up at times). The video bitrate hovered around the 6.1 Mbps bitrate when I spot checked it though it was in the 7+ area occasionally as well, no compression artifacts observed in my viewing of the upcoming flick. I predict that the Blu-ray version will look even better but make no mistakes that aside from a few comments below, this was one fine looking bit of boning (to use the vernacular), with decent editing presumably by Nick P. and Kurt Tortcher. The audio was presented in the usual 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English with a 384 Kbps bitrate. The audio was very solid here with the music balanced in better than expected even if the separation appeared to be added in during post production (and the dynamic range was modest to say the best). Joey Pulgadas did a fine job cleaning up some of the issues inherent in any porn production though, even the background noises and talking handled very well here.

Body of Review: Digital Playground is one of the few companies able to currently propel the industry into modern times thanks to their devotion to their works; using the very best camera equipment (such as the vaunted RED SYSTEM other companies only dream about), and a stable of contract hotties (like Jesse Jane, Stoya, and others), that give director Robby D plenty of room to experiment with. Coming up at the end of the month will be his next hit, a title called Stoya Heat that features beautiful contract hotty Stoya in three full scenes. That she got to work with top male talent was the icing on the cake (Erik Everhard, James Deen, and Scott Nails with Jerry assisting) but she really poured on the charm in each scene, showing a greater range than is usually allowed when the director continually talks (which did not happen here). The company website described the scene like this: ""Stoya: Heat" is an astounding platform for superstar Stoya to lose all inhibitions and throw herself completely into a world of sex and desire. There is no denying a girl sexual satisfaction when all she craves is a giant cock in her pussy and ass. "Stoya: Heat" showcases the raw sexual desire and irresistible urges of horny girls on the prowl. Stoya sucks and fucks James Deen and takes Erik Everhard's cock in her ass. She is also double-teamed by studs Scott Nails and Jerry properly fucked from both ends. Madison Scott, Priva, and Nika Noir join Stoya to show that nobody can resist a girl in HEAT! "Stoya: Heat" is the 10th adult film from Digital Playground shot using the Red One, the world's most powerful, digital camera." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Stoya, the beautiful little vixen spotted on the front cover, was up first as she drank the last of the Tropicana orange juice and put the container back in the refrigerator. Erik Everhard comes along to get a drink himself, getting upset that Stoya sucked it dry (though he himself placed the empty container back in the frige), and calls out her name with a degree of anger. The camera then showed Stoya on the bed smirking, knowing full well what she had done (on purpose) and what would happen from there, Erik coming in to give her a different kind of tongue lashing as he removed her panties and stuffed his face in her sweet ass. Her facial expressions told the story better than dialogue ever could have, the picture perfect look of the young lady finally caught as it should be using the RED camera system Robby blabs about all the time. Erik pounded her welcoming pussy too, Stoya inhaling his cock between positions in such a manner that most men would have blown too quickly. After then fingering her perfect pucker, Stoya went from an active vaginal ride to a more passive anal penetration scene, verbally displaying the mixture of pleasure and pain she was feeling as he drilled her deeply. Erik then gave her a hickey that lasted for a very long time (it was seen in each of her scenes afterwards as well as later on her Xcritic blog), word having it that he was no longer allowed within two feet of her neck. The scene closed out with Stoya taking the facial of genetic juice and providing some post coital head, smiling all the while at the chemistry-filled scenario she initiated. Nice!
Scene Two: Nika Noir, a kind of trampy looking gal with a very thin body, was then up with moper Danny Mountain in the bathroom as the two began their day with routine hygiene topped by some loving. Frankly, neither of these two caused a stir in my loins as she doesn't trip my trigger and he's a dude (one that gained his entrance to porn strictly by virtual of his former main squeeze at that!). In any case, they went down on each other well enough and vaginally screwed with a degree of efficiency in a few positions but following an act like Stoya with Erik Everhard is kind of like following the Superbowl with a documentary on butterfly collecting. She did some PTM between positions and he let loose with a large wad of population pudding to her crotch but it was what some might refer to as a "filler" scene at best.
Scene Three: Stoya, this time wearing a neon green bikini outfit and blue stockings, was then up as she used her cunning to trick James Deen into fucking her. Why she would need to employ such tactics is a mystery the director can answer himself but aside from the outdated idea that someone could get tired of a top notch babe like Stoya, the couple showed a nice amount of chemistry (not quite the same as in her previous scene but very appealing all the same). He went down on her and she blew him with passion, licking his balls and playfully upping the ante even before they began to vaginally hammer away at one another. He choked her and she continued to verbally assail him, his hand prints clearly seen on her lily white ass as he drilled away. She maintained eye contact with him and the scene finished up when he launched his seed onto her pussy, the near vaginal creampie suiting her just fine. Yum!
Scene Four: Madison Scott, a fetching young bleach blond with large implants, was up next as she showed her state of domestic bliss in a living room by masturbating while sniffing the used underwear of Scott Nails that was laying around the floor. While that is gross even by my standards (and an act generally attributed to men with their ladies undies), it served well as the launching point for him to walk in on her for a heated hummer. Madison was not shy about her love of cock, the cutie aggressively going at his member as the sun soaked sleepyhead gave her his all. He then felt her up before the couple vaginally screwed, Madison never getting enough of his rod in her mouth. She actively rode his pecker in several positions too, making it a very solid scene overall, if not on par with Stoya's trio of scenes.
Scene Five: Priva, an exotic gal with Asian roots was up next, crawling out of bed with Johnny Sins to get some loving. The minimalist approach here worked to a degree with her slobbing his knob using her talented tongue, hand, and mouth in unison. She was a little standoffish and cold (sort of like Sasha Grey tends to be) but the bathroom bout of boning did allow both of them to display their oral and penetrative skills. Priva was in one of her most passive scenes in terms of riding skills though, the subpar lighting not helping matters any once they went back to bed for the anal portion of the misadventure. She did some ATM and swallowed the facial as best she could, marking it as an okay scene.
Scene Six: Stoya, still sporting her massive hickey and alabaster skin, was up last on the couch servicing both Jerry and Scott Nails. Scott blew her off initially but she enjoyed receiving Jerry's compliments, soon allowing both of them free access to her body as the clothes went flying off. She alternated sucking the men off and they took turns screwing her pussy, Stoya seemingly loving her own juices mixed with theirs. The oral and vaginal sex continued until the men rubbed out wads of semen to her welcoming mouth, her neck still marred by the damage Erik had done to her seen before the credits rolled. It was a good way to end the movie even if the chemistry between her and Jerry was questionable.
Summary: Stoya Heat by director Robby D. for Digital Playground benefitted greatly by the inclusion of the ultra plus hotty Stoya being in three full scenes so I rated it as Recommended. Stoya has never looked better thanks in large part to the capable handling of the RED cameras used to capture every pixel in as high a resolution as possible, the quality of her performances undeniably top notch thanks in no small part to the men selected to work with her. In short, Stoya Heat was an exceptional tribute to the featured contract performer and the kind of movie I really like getting to see her in, no director talking or other distractions getting in the way. A special nod to wardrobe specialist Celeste for her selection of attire that enhanced the "Stoya Experience" as I like to call it, her calling truly appreciated this time.
