Digital Playground seems intent on releasing all of the Stoya footage they can these days and you can't really blame them. Her stuff sells for reason and her substantial fanbase know that she almost always delivers a top notch scene. This is a girl who likes to fuck and it shows, and on top of that she looks fantastic doing it. And thus was born Robby D's A Taste Of Stoya, a decent feature that slaps her picture on the front but which only features her in two scenes. Thankfully the other three are of reasonable quality as well, making this one pretty easy on the eyes.
Here's a rundown of who fucks who and who they do it:
Scene 1 - Bridgett B And Mick Blue: After we get some nice lingering shots of Bridgett doing her thing in the shower, she comes out of the stall and dries off. Mick enters the room and is obviously into what he sees and they start making out and get into bed with one another. Mick works her tits and she gives him a nice blowjob before she climbs up on top and rides him cowgirl style. Mick gives her a rim job while she's down on all fours and then he fucks her doggy style, fairly aggressively, before pulling out and lobbing a load all over her face to end the scene.
Scene 2 - Stoya And Mick Blue: Mick walks in on Stoya as she's just started playing with herself. He sees she's in the mood and he responds in kind, as they start making out. He plays with her pierced tits and she goes down on him after which he's happy to return the oral favors. They go at it missionary style and you can tell Stoya's enjoying herself here. She rides him cowgirl style until she climaxes and then he fucks her from behind. She looks very happy getting drilled here, having a good time with her partner and letting the audience know it with some very enticing glances, really working the camera as best she can until Mick finishes the scene by coming into her mouth.

Scene 3 - Mason Moore And Scott Nails: After Mason eats a banana, Scott moves into the room. They eye each other up and down and one thing leads to another. Soon enough Scott's coerced her into giving him head. She's not too into it at first but she soon gets into the spirit of things and takes him down her throat like a champ. Scott eats her out and then they get to the penetration as he fucks her missionary style to get things moving. She stands up and bends over and takes it from behind and then she rides him reverse cowgirl before finishing him off with some more quality blowjob action ending the scene with a big facial.
Scene 4 - Jenna Presley And David Perry: Jenna starts her scene off all by her lonesome. She brushes her hair and then indulges in a little self gratification before David comes into the room and lends a helping hand. He licks her wet fingers and she gives him a blowjob and he returns the mouth-genital loving in spades. After the oral, they spoon fuck for a bit before she rides him cowgirl style for a few. She hopes off of his prick and sucks his cock for a while and then before you know it she's back on top and riding him reverse cowgirl style. He finishes things up by putting it between her tits and plopping a load up and down her neck and her rack.
Scene 5 - Stoya And James Deen: Saving the best for last, this scene finds Stoya tied up, face down and ass up, in the bed. James comes in and slaps her ass a bit with his riding crop before using his mouth and tongue on her backside. You can tell by the way she arches her back that she's starting to get into it, spanking her and really working her ass. They get to fucking but not before she sucks his cock, balls and toes to get him primed for pumping. He slips it to her from behind, getting some really good doggy style action in there, and soon he's out of her cooze and up in her ass for some fairly aggressive anal action. She gets into it, again giving those looks to the camera that really help make her scenes so hot, and Mr. Deen finishes by pulling out and pulling off into her open mouth ending both the scene and the feature.
A Taste Of Stoya looks very good in this 1080p AVC 1.85.1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Thankfully Robby D. chose to light this in a fairly natural style, so skin looks like skin, there are no orange or hot looking hues here as seems to be fairly common in HD porn. Everything looks quite nice and natural. There's an insane 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.
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 and it'd be nice to see Digital Playground embrace lossless audio on their Blu-ray releases. Dialogue and music both stay clean and clear throughout and the levels are all properly balanced. The score's resonance and bounce 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.
As seems to be the norm with their Blu-ray releases, Digital Playground has supplied only one real extra, and it's a ten minute behind the scenes piece. Usually these are little more than superficial fluff piece but this one is actually worth checking out as it lets lovely Stoya talk about her early life, her career and her likes and dislikes and she does so with a surprisingly earnest sense of humor. It's too brief to offer up much real substance but it is at least amusing enough to be worth a look. Some of the dialogue is a little hushed so subtitles are supplied on screen.
Motion menus, a bunch of Digital Playground trailers (in HD), a still gallery, contact info, and scene selection round out the supplements on this release.
A Taste Of Stoya really could have used a bit more screen time from its cover girl but all in all it's a well made feature with two smoldering sex scenes and three decent ones. Stoya's fanbase will definitely appreciate this more than others as her two moments in front of the camera are hot as hot can be. Digital Playground's Bu-ray release is of the same good quality as most of their recent offerings, though the transfer here seems just a little nicer and more natural looking. Highly recommended for die-hard Stoya devotees, a solid 'recommended' for everyone else down with feature style smut.
