XCritic's Advice: Recommended

Genre: All sex.
Director: Randy Spears
Cast: Alexis Love, Dana DeArmond, Marco Banderas, Marcus London, Naomi, Nick Manning, Nikki Fairchild, Niko, Rachel Roxxx, Steven St. Croix, Tommy Gunn, Tristan Kingley.
Length: 01:32
Condoms: None.
Bonus: Two bonus points: one for condom-free sex and the second for the gorgeous female cast that includes 2008 Dr. Jay's Must See Girl Alexis Love.


Steven St. Croix plays and attorney with a penchant for stocking-clad feet, legs, asses, and pussies. Throughout the scene, Steven writes in his diary about his longings, shares his fantasies and experiences with us, and assures us his desires are not abnormal by introducing us to his acquaintances who also share his love for "gift wrapped" women.

Steven tells us about a rich client whose wife refuses to indulge his stocking fetish. The unfortunate soul is forced to hire hookers to satisfy him. Steven also tells about his law-school days when Rachel Roxxx, a particularly attractive librarian who always wore sexy hose, made out with lucky male students in the midst of the stacks.

Steven shares his fantasies with us, too. For example, he often wishes that he were a plumber. That way, he could look up at stocking-clad women from under the sink (don't laugh...it plays out very well in Scene Two with Alexis Love and Marcus London). And, Steven also tells us about one of his dreams in which his sexy wife, Nikki Fairchild, plays a white-stockinged nurse who ministers to his raging hard-on.

Sheer Desires is what I am calling a "light" feature. Although it does not include extensive dialog or extensive interaction between the performers in the scenes, there is a definite theme to the movie. In addition, Steven St. Croix is involved in every scene, either as part of the set-up or as a participant. Strictly speaking, however, Sheer Desires is really a wall-to-wall sex movie.

Sheer Desires was directed by veteran male porn performer Randy Spears. Randy did a superb job in terms of production values. First, and most importantly, all the girls are absolutely gorgeous! Sometimes porn chicks don't shave their pubic areas, have pimple-covered asses, or don't have their nails done. Not so in Sheer Desires. Every woman is fantasy-perfect!

In addition, Randy took great care to choose absolutely sumptuous locations and sets for every scene. Talk about beautiful places to fuck! Even the bathroom set in Scene Two is elegant! In addition, Randy carefully selected wardrobe for both the women and the men. Of course, the womens' stockings alone will make your blood boil. But...and this is what's extraordinary...the guys are nicely attired, too. No raggedy jeans or ugly T-shirts! I must also applaud the make-up artist Randy chose for the shoot. Perfect!

Randy's attention to detail is also evident in the wide-screen camerawork (every shot is very sensuous and the close-ups and camera angles are superb), the music (different--and very well selected--music accompanies each scene), and editing (no trite swipes...the edits are smooth and soft dissolves). Randy even used a smoke machine in Scene Five to make the setting appear more "dreamy" (it's a dream sequence).

Overall, Sheer Desires is a beautiful piece of work. It is definitely suited to couples viewing. Obviously, the movie is also appropriate for those who enjoy pretty stocking-clad legs and feet!

By way of constructive criticism, I do think that the scenes are a bit short. Perhaps it's because I've been reviewing longer gonzo scenes lately. But, five scenes in 90 minutes average 18 minutes per scene. I don't think that most of the scenes extended long enough to capture all the nuances I like to see in sex scenes. For example, Scene Two, featuring 2008 Dr. Jay's Must-See Girl Alexis Love, only includes two sexual positions. Likewise, all-important cunnilingus is absent in Scene One. Adding five minutes to each scene would have improved them greatly, I think...provided, of course, that the time were used effectively and sexually.

On the positive side, I really appreciate the fact that every girl came at least once during her scene. I hate it when girls don't get to experience the same degree of pleasure as the guys. 

Check out some photos of the girls in Sheer Desires here. Pay particular attention to the photos of adorable Alexis Love, busty Rachel Roxxx, and edgy Dana DeArmond! Enjoy! 


Note to readers: My reviews are provided in two parts. This webpage provides you with an overview of the scene's setup and action as well as my ratings for sex, video, audio, and production values. A separate Word document checklist details the foreplay activities, positions, pops, and features of each scene...as well as the calculation of each scene's ratings. The checklist for Penthouse Variations: Sheer Desires can be downloaded here. You'll need a password. It's drjay2008.

Look for scenes and movies with a 4.5 or higher (A) sex rating and at least 4.0 (B) in video, audio, and production values. Those are my favorite scenes and I'm quite certain that you'll like them, too.

Scene 1

Scene Type: Boy/girl/anal
Performers: Dana DeArmond, Nick Manning

-- sponsored by --

Overview: Nick Manning plays one of attorney Steven St. Croix's clients, a man who's in the middle of a messy divorce from his "frigid" wife who won't engage in his stocking/leg/foot fetish. A man with substantial inherited means, Nick frequently hires call girls to satisfy his cravings. In this scene, Dana DeArmond plays a girl who, for the right price, is all too willing to share her fishnet-covered ass, pussy, thighs, legs, and feet with lusty Nick. After negotiating their deal in Nick's fashionable home, Dana gives him a little striptease that leaves her naked with the exception of a pair of oh-so-sexy black fishnet pantyhose. In due course, Dana gives Nick an absolutely superb--and very slobbery--blowjob that includes deep-throat, stringers, and jawbreakers. During this hot fellatio, Nick pulls on Dana's hair to remind her who's in control. Foreplay also includes lots of attention to Dana's long and shapely legs and pretty feet encased in her sexy stockings. Both Dana and Nick take lots of time to caress her pantyhose-clad feet, legs, thighs, ass, and pussy. Nick also licks and nibbles on Dana's pretty pedicured toes. In addition, Dana uses her feet to stroke Nick's rigid cock. After several minutes of beautiful foreplay, sex, which includes both vaginal and anal penetrations, begins when Nick rips an opening in Dana's pantyhose. Then, the two fuck each other in cowgirl while they both groan with pleasure and talk nasty. Absolutely superb chemistry develops between Dana and Nick...they really know how to turn each other on with words and actions. Later, Dana and Nick share some female-orgasm-inducing mish as well as anal sex (and a fingers/cock DP) in reverse. Dana, not one to lie back and get fucked, does her share of the thrusting and shows off her powerful and sexy moves...especially in vaginal cowgirl and anal reverse cowgirl. During sex, you'll see lots of clit-jacking, toe nibbling, and pussy-to-mouth. To conclude this scene, Dana holds a stocking-covered foot close to her mouth. Nick "drops his load" onto her foot and into her mouth. She licks the cum off of her feet and swallows. This is a very beautifully-shot and extremely sensuous scene that combines attention to production values with hot sex that provides both of the performers with pleasure and orgasms. However, I am disappointed that Nick doesn't ever go down on Dana's pussy during the scene. He normally does a fine job of pussy eating and I'm surprised he left her tasty twat unlicked.

Scene 2

Scene Type: Boy/girl
Performers: Alexis Love, Marcus London

Overview: Marcus London plays a plumber called to fix the sink drain in Alexis Love's elegant and formal bathroom. While Marcus labors under the sink, Alexis primps herself in front of the mirror while dressed in a very sexy outfit replete with silk stockings that have a sexy black seam up the back. Alexis knows that seeing her amazing body dressed so erotically is driving Marcus out of his mind. She likes that. So, she pushes him even farther by asking him to straighten the seams on the back of her legs. Of course, once Marcus begins to touch her fine legs he simply cannot keep his mind on his work. She even inflames him further by grabbing his hand and using it to rub her to-do-for firm ass cheeks. Marcus soon positions Alexis on the bathtub's edge, enjoys her feet as she uses them to stroke his bulging pants, sensuously caresses her never-ending legs and thighs, opens her legs, tears a hole in her pantyhose, and greedily feasts from her pussy's bounty. Marcus does an absolutely superb job of cunnilingus and also gives lots of attention to Alexis' beautiful gorgeous legs, her feet, and her toes. Foreplay also includes tender breast suckling, kissing, and loving fellatio (nice jawbreakers). Once both Alexis and Marcus are too horny to hold back any longer, they fuck each other in missionary and then in standing doggie. Alexis experiences a sweet orgasm during doggie as her absolutely stunning body enjoys waves after wave of pleasure. Throughout the scene, watch for Alexis' gorgeous tits to bounce delightfully and for her to stroke her erect clit and ravenously perform pussy-to-mouth on Marcus' rod. And, watch for Marcus to tear off portions of Alexis' stockings as he "unwraps" his stunningly beautiful present. To conclude the scene, Marcus pops on Alexis' stocking-clad foot and then she uses her hands to plays with his semen and to milk him dry. This is a scene that really should have had five to ten more minutes. Alexis and Marcus share only two positions and they don't really have much time to engage in many sexual activities that I like to see during sex scenes (like 69, passionate kissing, nipple sucking, and so on). Frankly, I'm disappointed that beautiful Alexis, one of my 2008 Dr. Jay's Must-See Girls, didn't get a chance to show off more of her amazing talents.

Scene 3

Scene Type: Boy/girl
Performers: Tristan Kingsley, Niko

Overview: Niko plays a friend of Steven's who's married to a beautiful, tall, and leggy wife played by Tristan Kingsley. Steven tells us a story about what happened to Niki and Tristan one night as they were getting dressed to go out. In the couples' well-appointed living room, Tristan finishes dressing by sensuously rolling her black silk stockings--the kind with the seam up the back--up her shapely legs. She adjusts the seam so that it is straight and then slips sexy black stilettos onto her feet. Meanwhile, Niko is also busy dressing. In due course, Niko catches a glimpse of his wife's gorgeous legs and cannot help but compliment her legs' appearance. "You've never said that to me before!" she replies. Niko squats in front of Tristan and starts to caress her legs. Although she enjoys his touch, Tristan reminds Niko of their dinner plans. "Fuck dinner," he responds, "let's just have some good sex." Tristan quickly concurs. After continuing to play with Tristan's legs, Niko removes her shoes and worships her feet with his hands and mouth. Tristan really likes the attention and responds by smiling and by using her feet to caress his chest, belly, and the bulge in his pants. "You wanna fuck me, don't you?" "Hell, yeah!" Niko rolls Tristan's stockings off her legs, wraps the fabric around her feet, and then turns his attention to her pussy. First, he strokes it through her black panties and then pulls her underwear tight between her labia so he can tease her clit-hood-ring-adorned pussy while she groans with delight. Niko then moves on to cunnilingus and does an outstanding job of licking her clit and pierced clit hood and tongue-fucking her vagina...so well, in fact that he makes her cum! Afterward, Tristan gives Nikki a very effective deep-throat blowjob that includes stringers and jawbreakers. Interestingly, she ties one of her silk stockings between Niko's balls and the base of his shaft while she blows him. As the scene unfolds, Niko and Tristan fuck in missionary, reverse cowgirl, and standing doggie. Tristan cums in both missionary and reverse. She also does the fucking using very sexy moves...especially in reverse...and causes her pretty, small-sized, and all-natural breasts to bounce joyfully. And, throughout the scene she jacks her own clit and uses well-chosen words to inflame Niko's lust. To finish up this beautiful scene, Niko cums on Tristan's foot and then she strokes his still-spasming rod with her pretty cum-covered feet.

Scene 4

Scene Type: Boy/girl
Performers: Rachel Roxxx, Tommy Gunn

Overview: Rachel Roxxx, who's one impressive woman, plays a clerk in a law-school library. Tommy Gunn, a law student, is quietly studying when Rachel enters the area of the library in which he's working. Rachel, dressed to kill in a skin-tight black sleeveless and strapless dress, busies herself by shelving books and by tidying up. Tommy's attention, of course, is drawn to Rachel's amazing physique--which is completely obvious through her tight dress--and her stocking-clad legs. In due course, Rachel pauses to tell Tommy that the library will soon be closing. As you might imagine, Tommy uses the opportunity to make his move. Interestingly, he tells her that the book he's reading has been damaged. So, she sits on the couch next to him to have a look. Soon, their hands touch and there's no turning back! They gingerly kiss and then Rachel, somewhat worried that she'll get caught, gives in to her basic instincts. Tommy's soon rubbing his lusty hands all over her pretty legs, tugging down the top of her dress so that he scan suckle her pierced nipples, and kissing her wide-open mouth. Tommy removes Rachel's shoe and then rubs and nuzzles her stocking-clad legs and feet. Meanwhile, Rachel plays with her panty-clad pussy. Once Tommy sees what she's doing, he goes down on her, tugs her panties aside, and voraciously eats, tongue- and finger-fucks, and strokes her beautifully groomed pussy...so well, in fact, that he makes her cum for the first of several times during the scene. Of course, Rachel repays Tommy's oral ministrations by eagerly sucking and swallowing his entire rod. And, she makes stringers from his dick to her mouth, too. Meanwhile, Tommy lasciviously caresses Rachel's fine curves and squeezes her tempting tits. Vaginal sex, which begins in cowgirl, also takes place in spoon and reverse cowgirl. Throughout the scene, Rachel uses extremely sexy thrusting and grind moves (especially during cowgirl and reverse cowgirl), groans enthusiastically, enjoys pussy-to-mouth, and talks nasty. Tommy responds to Rachel's lust by kissing her inviting mouth, by suckling her bouncing boobs, by jacking her clit, and by pounding her at redline speed. And, for our pleasure, he gapes Rachel's pussy. Rachel experiences lots of pleasure during the sex and climaxes in both cowgirl and spoon. To end this hot scene, the best in Sheer Desires, Tommy pops on Rachel's face...which she has covered with the fabric of her stockings. Then, she licks the semen off of the cloth.

Scene 5

Scene Type: Boy/girl
Performers: Nikki Fairchild, Steven St. Croix

Overview: In the final scene, Steven St. Croix finally tells us about his stocking fantasy. It begins when he falls asleep on a lazy Saturday afternoon. As he dreams, his wife, played by Nikki Fairchild, approaches him dressed as an old-fashioned nurse, complete with white nylon stockings and red-cross-style hat. She sits between his legs on the couch where he sleeps and then uses her feet to massage his cock through his pants. Slowly, responding to the pleasure, Steven awakes and is surprised by his wife's outfit. Nikki ensures him that he's dreaming and then proceeds to undress him, kiss his mouth, caress his naked chest with her feet, and slip her stockings down her luscious thighs and legs. In response, he lovingly strokes her neck, nuzzles her feet, and bites her stockings so that he can pull them down with his teeth. Soon, Nikki takes Steven's semi-rigid dick into her insatiable mouth and sucks him to full mast. She sensuously licks, sucks, and deep-throats his rod, ties one of her stockings around his base immediately above his balls, suckles his balls, and makes stringers from his tip to her talented mouth. She even slips one of her stockings over his cock and then sucks and strokes it through the fabric! Damn, that must feel nice! Meanwhile, Steven strokes her long, flowing, and brunette hair. Foregoing cunnilingus, Steven and Nikki move directly from fellatio to spoon-style vaginal sex (great close-ups) that rewards Nikki with an orgasm. Subsequent positions include kneeling doggie and mish. During the scene, Nikki is enthusiastic, fingers her clit, kisses Steven's mouth, chews on her stockings, and talks nasty. She obviously enjoys herself, judging by her enthusiastic moans and her very juicy pussy. For his part, Steven keeps busy by squeezing Nikki's pretty bouncing breasts and by suckling her toes. To conclude the scene, Steven pulls out of Nikki's pussy and unloosens his high-velocity load all over her hard and toned belly. Leaving the semen on her abdomen, Nikki kisses Steven and awakens him from his dream. When Steven opens his eyes, his real-life wife (also played by Nikki), dressed in sweats and without make-up, is standing over him and immediately starts nagging him about helping clean up the garage. This is a cute scene that was very nicely filmed in a gauzy/dreamy/mist-filled way. 

Sex rating: 4.25
Video rating: 5.00

Production values rating: 4.50


In addition to a full-motion chapter selector, this DVD contains a 15-minute foot-fetish vaginal/anal scene from Stiletto. The bonus scene features Naomi (one of the best butts in woman-kind...I sure wish she were still in the business!) and Marco Banderas. There are two self-running slide shows...one for Sheer Desires (nearly seven minutes) and the second for Stiletto (less than one minute). You'll also find trailers for six Penthouse releases (about 13 minutes total) and website access information. This set of Extras is just barely average in today's marketplace. Three stars.
