Canadian born Sophia Santi's star is definitely on the rise in the world of porn these days, and it's no wonder... I mean, look at her. She's a stone cold fox. The former Penthouse Pet is no working for Digital Playground who have wisely seen fit to showcase her on a few titles as of late, the obvious example being the disc under review here, Celeste's Sophia Santi: Erotique.
Now, Sophia doesn't really seem too interested in doing dudes on camera and it's obvious that she enjoys the company of other ladies so don't expect to see her doing anything with any of the guys this time around, but she does star in three of the six scenes on the disc alongside some very talented and beautiful female co-stars.
Here's a rundown of who fucks who and who they do it:
Scene 1 - Sophia Santi And Kimberly Kane: Sophia's just hanging out in bed eating candy when Kimberly walks in on her. The two chat for a bit and then before you know it, they've busted out a dildo and are sharing it with one another, teasing the camera by licking it and what not. Kimberly takes the lead, not surprisingly, and goes to town on Sophia, using her tongue and her toy like the pro that she is. She flips her over and works on her from behind for a bit before Sophia returns the favors and fucks Kimberly with a different dildo. Sophia winds the scene to a nice close by licking and fingering Kimberly's snatch. Very, very nicely done girls!
Scene 2 - Micah Moore And Charles Dera: Charles walks into the room and hits the shower and shortly after, Micah pops in and puts his clothes on while his cleaning up. He walks out and she gives him a solid hummer and then they move into a nice sixty-nine for a few minutes. She rides him cowgirl and reverse cowgirl and he fucks her from behind before getting her on the floor, fucking her missionary style and pulling out to unload all over her pelvis ending a nice, if unremarkable scene. Micah looks great and is having a good time here but there's not much to really make it stand out.

Scene 3 - Sophia Santi And Tiffany Brookes: Sophia comes into Tiffany's bedroom and walks her sleeping friend for some sexy fun. She plays with her feet and then with her breasts and there's a lot of good toe to tit action here that warms things up nicely. From there Sophia attaches a strap-on to herself so that she can fuck Tiffany, first rubbing the cock all over her feet and then eventually penetrating her pussy with it for a while. Tiffany sucks on it and the girls take turns with the strap on, fucking one another from behind with varying degrees of aggression until they're both well taken care of. Nicely shot, this is a pretty steamy scene with a lot of good lead in and foreplay to set the mood properly.
Scene 4 - Devaun And Tony DeSergio: After a bit of kissing and touching Tony gets down to business and heads south to munch on Devaun's box for a bit. He uses his tongue and fingers on her and gets her on all fours to eat her out from behind. Devaun gives him a nice blowjob before they kick it into high gear and fuck another from a few different angles - the usual stuff, doggie, cowgirl and reverse - before Devaun drops to suck him to a finish and take his load onto her tongue and down her throat. This is another scene with some nice build up, it's obvious that these two are into one another and enjoying themselves here which makes this fairly standard scene sexier than average.
Scene 5 - Sophia Santi, Karlie Montana And Samantha Ryan: When Samantha and Karlie get into a disagreement about who gets the glass toy, Sophia comes in to break it up by showing off her black rubber dildo. They want it but she won't let them have it, instead she uses it on herself and teases them. Eventually, however, they girls all decide that sharing is the best policy and they take turns using the dildos on each other. They all get naked and use their tongues and their fingers too but the emphasis here is definitely on the toy action which takes away from it a bit. There's still some quality girl on girl on girl action here though, and the three of them do look great together - having a blonde sandwiched in between two dark haired hotties provides a nice contrast too.
Scene 6 - Cody Lane, Italia Christie And Marco Banderas: Last but not least, lucky Marco finds himself in a room with these two buxom raven haired ladies. The scene starts with the girls taking care of one another, playing with their tits and using a dildo. Marco comes into the room and they tease him for quite a few minutes. Once they're done with that they take turns sharing oral duties, each one blowing pretty enthusiastically. The girls then take turns riding Marco, with plenty of good pussy to mouth action spacing things out nicely, and then each of the girls lets Marco fuck her up the ass. At one point Cody rides Marco with her ass while Italia slips a dildo into her pussy at the same time. Eventually Marco can take it no longer and he spurts all over Cody's mouth after pulling out of Italia's ass. Very hot stuff, this scene has a good chemistry, a nice rhythm to it and is nicely shot.
All in all, this disc is a winner. The sex is hot and varied enough that it never gets repetitive. Sophia Santi's fan base will enjoy seeing her in three very good scenes here while the guy-girl material that's also included here makes for a very good mix.
Sophia Santi: Erotique looks very good in this 1080p AVC 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. There's a good amount of detail present not only on the performers but also in the sets and backgrounds/sets used in the production. There aren't any issues at all with compression artifacts or edge enhancement while color reproduction and skin tones look excellent throughout. Eagle-eyed viewers may spot just a hint of shimmer here and there but you do have to be looking for it to notice it. That said, be wary going in if you have an aversion to filtering, as a fair bit of it has been done here to give the film a very specific look (very common with a lot of Celeste's work for Digital Playground, it seems). It works, and it makes for a very pretty picture, but it might irk those who want their detail unobscured and their porn shot under harsh lighting.
The sole audio track on this Blu-ray release is a 48 kHz 448 kbps Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound mix in English. The audio on this release is fine but it isn't as impressive as the transfer is. Dialogue stays clean and clear throughout and the levels are all properly balanced. The score sounds good and there aren't any problems with background hiss or distortion at all. The audio here won't blow you away but it certainly won't disappoint you either even if there isn't a whole lot of rear channel action worth noting.
A quick nine minute behind the scenes featurette is the only real extra on this disc. Check it out for some footage of the girls goofing around on set and prepping for their scenes. At this point, if you've seen one Digital Playground making off you're going to know exactly what to expect, and while more footage of Ms. Santi and company is always welcome, there's really no substance to any of this.
Motion menus, seven Digital Playground trailers, a still gallery, contact info, and scene selection make up the rest of the supplements on this release.
All in all, this is pretty steamy stuff. The focus is a bit slanted towards the girl on girl scenes but there's a nice mix of performers and sex acts in here and we all know that variety is the spice of life. Nicely shot with some top notch art direction, this is a very good looking disc and while it might play it fairly safe, as Digital Playground titles are apt to do, it's edge enough to have some serious spark and despite the lack of any substantial extras, it comes recommended.
