Riley Steele Honey

Studio: Digital Playground » Review by Dr. Jay » Review Date: 12/7/09

XCritic's Advice: Highly Recommended

Genre: Feature
Director: Celeste
Cast:  Alyssa Hall, Danny Mountain, Evan Stone, Mick Blue, Nicole Ray, Riley Steele, Scott Nails.
Length: 01:24
Condoms: None.
Bonus: One bonus point for condom-free sex.


Riley Steele Honey is a nicely-crafted and very classy feature in which Riley and Scott Nails play two disheartened young people who look, from the outside, to have everything. Talented Celeste directed the movie and award-winning photographer Robby D. captured the video.

Although financially successful, good-looking, and a babe magnet, Scott is very dispirited because his girlfriend, Alyssa Hall, broke up with him. He pines for her even though he can pick up as many women as he can possibly fuck. He even calls his new conquests "Alyssa," which, as you can imagine, doesn't go over well with the girls.

Riley, too, is dismayed because she can't seem to shake her "good girl" persona. She wants to be a "bad girl," to collect guys like notches on a pistol, and to experience life to the fullest. Riley pours out her frustrations to a bartender (Mick Blue) who, of course, is oh-to-happy to begin her on the road to sexuality decadence.

Scott, too, frequents Mick's bar. And, as you might expect, Scott meets Riley at the bar and tells her his tale. Riley immediately sets out to mend his broken heart...and stuff her now-insatiable pussy with his cock. Without a doubt, Riley and Scott hit it off and it appears that they will fuck happily ever after!

Along the way, Riley also gets to experience the world-class fucking skills of Evan Stone. And, Scott's ex, Alyssa Hall, finds a new beau (Danny Mountain) and they, of course, celebrate with some heavy in-and-out action.

As is always the case in Celeste-directed movies captured by Robby D., the aesthetics and production values are head-and-shoulders above most adult features. Nice wardrobe, locations, sets, and music support good to outstanding sex. And, the performers nicely deliver their plot lines, too!

I must admit that Riley's sexual and acting skills are becoming increasing good each time I see her in action. She's becoming, in effect, super star Jesse Jane's protégé in the way that she handles herself on and off dicks. In particular, Riley's scene with Evan stone really rocks. It's one of the best couplings of 2009, I think. Nice work, Riley!

There's only one thing that bothers me about Riley Steele Honey, and that's the color of the video. Instead of being warm and flattering to the girls' (and guys') skin, the color is cold and forbidding. When I asked the folks at Digital Playground about this, I was told: "Celeste wanted the bluish, desaturated colors to emphasize the melancholy and loneliness associated with the search for modern love. Heat and warmth come from the sex scenes, but the effects only last so long before Riley, Scott, and the other characters are looking for something more." Although this makes sense to the feel of the movie, I'd still prefer the colors to be warm and cuddly in sex scenes.

Overall, Riley Steele Honey is a worthwhile watch. I highly recommend it to you and your partner.

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 Riley Steele Honey can be downloaded here. You'll need a password. It's drjay2009.

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
Performers: Nicole Ray, Scott Nails.

Scene Set-up/Plot/Scenario: When the scene begins, Scott Nails, dejected, is sitting in his bathroom while the girl he just fucked--Nicole Ray--lays on his bed basking in sexual afterglow. Scott walks into the bedroom and asks "Alyssa" what time it is. Unfortunately, she's Nicole, not Scott's ex-girlfriend Alyssa. As you might expect, Nicole gets pissed. To explain, time shifts back an hour and we get to see Scott start to get himself in trouble with pretty and sexy Nicole when he arrives at his home, calls out to "Alyssa" when Nicole's actually there, and recovers nicely when caught: "I said, 'I missed ya!'" Nicole reluctantly buys his "explanation" and soon succumbs to his wiles when he begins to kiss her body, spread her legs, and feast on her pussy. Very satisfying foreplay then ensues...breast worship and deep-throat- and stringer-intensive fellatio in addition to pussy eating. Once they're both hornier than they can stand, they move on to vaginal sex and fuck in several effective and nice-on-the-eyes positions. Nicole does a hell of a nice job fucking Scott's long and lucky cock with her pussy and tits. Her moves are fucking awesome! She even squirts during one of her numerous orgasms. To end this quite enjoyable scene, Nicole jacks Scott's cock until pops into her mouth. Like a good girl, she swallows. Then, Scott goes into his restroom, daydreams of his "ex," and ruins everything by calling awesome Nicole "Alyssa." Nicole, massively pissed, slaps Scott's face and gets the hell out of his house.

Foreplay: Body licking, titty fucking, hair pulling, handjob, fellatio, deep-throat, stringers, balls-gobbling, cunnilingus.
Vaginal Positions: Cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, spoon, kneeling doggie.
Anal Positions: None.
Girl cums: Repeatedly.
Pop: Open mouth; she swallows.

Sex rating: 4.65
Video rating: 4.50
Audio rating: 450
Production values rating: 4.00

What I Liked Most:

  • It's a very nice scene scenario.
  • Nicole fucks back when Scott eats her pussy. She rubs her pussy against his face and groans appreciatively.
  • Nicole is a very nice-looking all-natural woman. See her pictures here.
  • Nicole gags delightfully when she deep-throats Scott's massive rod balls-deep (great fill-your-screen close-ups). She gives him a nice handjob, too.
  • Nicole fucks Scott's cock with her very fine all-natural tits during foreplay.
  • Nicole uses some damned fine moves to fuck Scott's cock in cowgirl. He responds by reaming her at redline speed.
  • Nicole's moves during kneeling doggie are even finer. They're definitely the stuff of wet dreams!
  • Nicole makes sure that Scott knows what she likes--and how much she likes it--while they fuck.
  • Nicole squirts when she cums in reverse cowgirl.
  • Nicole also has a non-squirting orgasm during spoon. She sucks her girl juice off Scott's rod.
  • The pop is extremely nice. Nicole intently--and very skillfully--jacks Scott's cock until he squirts his load into her wide-open mouth and onto his own belly (he is laying on his back during the ejaculation). She swallows a mouthful and then uses her mouth to vacuum up the rest of his semen from his belly. She eats that, too.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • I would prefer to see transitioning footage between positions.
  • The scene would have been better had there been a bit more chemistry between the performers. But, given the storyline, Scott was probably thinking about Alyssa while fucking Nicole. Makes sense.
  • A little anal sex would have been nice.

Scene 2

Scene Type: Boy/girl
Performers: Riley Steele, Mick Blue.

-- sponsored by --

Scene Set-up/Plot/Scenario: While sitting at his bar, Riley Steele confides in bartender Mick Blue: "All day long, I have this dream. I know it's gonna sound sick, but something inside me feels entitled. You know, I've been good all my life...I've been a decent student, a dutiful employee. But, there's this voice saying, 'Why don't you just be bad? Why don't you transgress? I mean, you deserve it!'" Of course, Mick realizes the chance of a lifetime and plays into Riley's "I wanna be bad" scenario. Soon, they're sharing hot and sensual open-mouthed kisses that quickly morph into too-brief foreplay that centers on Riley's perky tits, shapely ass cheeks, and beckoning vagina. Mick's cock, instantly hard, promptly finds its way into Riley's pussy in the doggie position, the first of several positions they enjoy as Riley cums over and over again. Of particular note are Riley's hot and erotic fucking moves (in every position they use), the intense chemistry that develops between the couple, Riley's ravenous pussy-to-mouth technique, and Mick's insatiable attraction to Riley's cunt that makes him bury his tongue between her labia on several occasions. After the couple enjoys several minutes of sweaty, high-energy, and multiple-female-orgasm-inducing sex, Mick gets to cum, too...all over Riley's face. She sucks him dry and then abruptly leaves the bar...as if she's not quite ready to be as bad a girl as she just was with Mick.

Foreplay: Kissing, mutual stripping, spanking, tit sucking and squeezing, finger-fucking, clit jacking.
Vaginal Positions: Missionary, cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, standing doggie.
Anal Positions: None.
Girl cums: Repeatedly.
Pop: Open mouth.

Sex rating: 4.55
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.50
Production values rating: 4.20

What I Liked Most:

  • The open-mouthed and hungry kisses that start foreplay are very hot.
  • Riley looks especially nice during this scene. Her muscular and well toned body contrasts nicely with her firm and perky tits. As always, her face is adorable.
  • Mick literally attacks Riley's superbly sculpted breasts with his mouth and hands.
  • Mick licks and spanks Riley's fine ass.
  • Riley gives Mick very nice balls-deep pussy-to-mouth (PTM) between positions. She also effectively uses her hands on his lucky spit-soaked rod during PTM.
  • Mick greedily eats Riley's pussy before he fucks it in cowgirl.
  • Riley does a hell of a nice job fucking and grinding Mick in cowgirl and in reverse cowgirl. Since he's seated on a bar stool, he cannot do much thrusting. Believe me, Riley nicely overcomes Mick's temporary "disability." She even makes herself cum during cowgirl! It's obvious that Riley has learned a great deal from her Digital Playground mentor, Jesse Jane, who is, perhaps, the most energetic fuck ever!
  • Very nice chemistry develops between Riley and Mick during cowgirl. It's obvious that they're having a great time together. This explosive chemistry continues throughout the rest of the scene.
  • Riley's orgasm during missionary made my day. Mick enjoyed it too, and lapped up her resultant girl juice with his tongue.
  • Riley's sex-flushed (and very pink) body glistens with sweat.
  • Mick takes time to rim Riley's asshole between positions.
  • At the end of the scene, Mick blows his load all over Riley's pretty face and into her open mouth. She sucks him dry and then abruptly leaves the bar.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • I think there should have been more foreplay. Kissing, titty play, and finger fucking are all the couple enjoy before Mick plunges his cock into Riley's pussy in standing doggie.
  • There's no transitioning footage between cowgirl and mish.
  • I think the color is a bit too desaturated. I would have preferred the image to be more intensely colorful.

Scene 3

Scene Type: Boy/girl
Performers: Alyssa Hall, Danny Mountain.

Scene Set-up/Plot/Scenario: Scott happens to drop into the same bar Riley just left and finds himself telling his tale to bartender Mick Blue. Feeling bluer than ever, Scott calls his ex, Alyssa, and begs to make up. He soon learns, however, that she's already moved on and is now sharing her pussy with a new guy, Danny Mountain. After Scott rings off, Alyssa picks up where she was...sharing deep and hungry kisses with Danny. As soon as Danny and Alyssa can tear off some of her clothes, Danny begins to kiss his way down her thighs to her pussy. Danny then hungrily gobbles Alyssa's cunt and, in doing so, make her groan and pant ecstatically. Of course, Alyssa responds orally by attacking Danny's full-mast dick with her hands and insatiable mouth (her beautiful breasts dangle delightfully as she bends down to gobble his rod and balls). Foreplay soon morphs into sex as Danny and Alyssa enjoy four vaginal positions. Lusty Alyssa does more than her fair share of the fucking using sexy, energetic, and effective moves. She even gets to cum at least three times, during mish, cowgirl, and doggie. Even though Alyssa is a damned good fuck, she best part of the scene is actually Danny's pop. He works himself up to his climax in missionary. Then, at the last second, he pulls out and his high-velocity ejaculations splatter her labia, belly, tits, face, and hair. Some even lands in her wide-open mouth. Damned fine orgasm, Danny! Alyssa scoops up fingers-full of semen and eats it. Then, she sucks him dry.

Foreplay: Kissing, body licking, hair pulling, mutual stripping, handjob, fellatio, stringers, balls-gobbling, cunnilingus, finger-fucking, clit jacking.
Vaginal Positions: Missionary, cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, kneeling doggie.
Anal Positions: None.
Girl cums: Repeatedly.
Pop: Exterior belly.

Sex rating: 4.35
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.50
Production values rating: 4.30

What I Liked Most:

  • Scott Nails, feeling sorry for himself, gives a nice soliloquy during the plot development prior to the scene. In addition, the phone dialog between Scott and Alyssa is well delivered, too.
  • Danny and Alyssa share some very nice open-mouthed kisses at the beginning of foreplay.
  • Danny licks and kisses his way down Alyssa's thighs to her pussy, which he eats and finger-fucks greedily.
  • Alyssa has very nice all-natural tits. They dangle and bounce beautifully when she gives Danny a blowjob and when she fucks him.
  • Alyssa gives Danny a very spirited blowjob (great close-ups) replete with balls-gobbling, stringers, and handjob action.
  • Alyssa does most of the fucking in cowgirl and in reverse...and shows off her sexy and enthusiastic moves! Lucky Danny responds by fucking her at redline speed.
  • Danny repeatedly spanks Alyssa's ass cheeks in order to increase her pleasure.
  • Danny gapes Alyssa's pussy for our viewing pleasure.
  • Alyssa cums sweetly during cowgirl, doggie, and missionary.
  • Alyssa's use of ecstatic shouts and nasty vocabulary insures that we know how much pleasure she feels.
  • The close-ups are GREAT in missionary.
  • Danny's pop is TRULY impressive. While fucking Alyssa in mish, he works himself up to his climax. At the last second, he pulls out and his high-velocity ejaculations splatter her labia, belly, tits, face, and hair. Some even lands in her wide-open mouth. Damned fine orgasm, Danny! Alyssa makes it even sweeter by scooping up fingers-full of semen and eating it. Then, she vacuums his dick dry.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • I think the color balance could have been more flattering to the performers' skin.
  • I'm a bit surprised that Danny didn't attack Alyssa's fine natural tits with his mouth and hands. They scream out "worship me!"
  • A bit of anal sex would have been nice.

Scene 4

Scene Type: Boy/girl.
Performers: Riley Steele, Evan Stone.

Scene Set-up/Plot/Scenario: Back at the bar, Riley and Scott meet. Scott, still a pathetic sad sack, again pours out his woes. Riley listens, commiserates, and decides to do something to help him...to dedicate herself to his improvement. They even kiss to seal the deal. As the plot develops, Riley finds herself with Scott in the office of his ruthless boss (Evan Stone). Scott owes Evan a large cum of money and can't pay. He begs Evan for even a "shitty little job" to help pay his due. At that point, Riley jumps in and offers herself to Evan...in payment for Scott's debt. What unfolds next is so fucking hot and edgy I don't want to tell you much more than the pleasure Riley and Evan experience is incredible! Get this scene into your DVD player now so you can feel the pleasure, too. You won't be sorry.

Foreplay: Kissing, striptease, spanking, tit squeezing, hair pulling, handjob, fellatio, deep-throat, balls-gobbling, mild choking and face slapping, cunnilingus, finger-fucking, multiple-finger-fucking, clit jacking, rimming.
Vaginal Positions: Missionary, cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, side-saddle cowgirl, kneeling doggie, spoon.
Anal Positions: None.
Girl cums: Repeatedly.
Pop: Face.

Sex rating: 5.00
Video rating: 4.50
Audio rating: 4.00
Production values rating: 4.50

What I Liked Most:

  • Riley and Scott do a nice job delivering their dialog lines during the plot development preceding the scene.
  • Riley is agreeably aggressive in getting what she wants from Evan. She also behaves like a super slut!
  • Evan, too, is mildly aggressive with Riley during foreplay...slapping her face and choking her throat. In fact, the scene becomes a bit edgy in a domination/submission sort of way...it's not exactly rough, per se, but definitely on the edge! Interestingly, both Evan and Riley try to be the dominant! So, the scene is very high energy and extraordinarily hot!
  • Evan does a cuperb job greedily eating and multiple-finger-fucking Riley's tasty twat and rimming her tight asshole. Riley fucks back!
  • The chemistry that develops between Evan and Riley during foreplay is, to say the least, incendiary. They maintain a super-high level of mutual lust throughout the scene.
  • Riley's combination hand/blowjob technique, displayed during foreplay as well as pussy-to-mouth (PTM) during sex, is lubricated by copious amounts of her spit and is, to say the least, outstanding. She even gags on his immense rod! And, she sucks his balls deep into her mouth, too.
  • Riley and Evan begin sex in piledriver. I told you this is an edgy scene!
  • Riley does most of the fucking in cowgirl and in reverse. As in Scene Two, Riley's moves are stupendous! And, they become even more frenzied when Evan chokes her throat and spanks her ass cheeks.
  • Evan repeatedly manhandles Riley...tossing her little body here and there as they fuck all over the room.
  • Evan fucks Riley's firm and perky tits between sexual positions (great camera angles and close-ups).
  • Riley's orgasm during side-saddle cowgirl is tremendously powerful. Her climax in mish is impressive, too.
  • At the end of the scene, Evan pops on Riley's face (her mouth inadvertently closes just as he explodes). She sucks him dry.
  • This scene absolutely rocks. One of the best couplings in 2009.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • The color balance could have been a bit more flattering to Riley's flesh tones.
  • During spoon, I heard a bit of ambient traffic noise that should have been edited out.
  • There are no transitions between some sexual positions.

Scene 5

Scene Type: Boy/girl.
Performers: Riley Steele, Scott Nails.

Scene Set-up/Plot/Scenario: At the end of Scene Four, Evan Stone forgives all of Scott's debts due to Riley's unforgettable sexual performance with him. So, Scott and Riley head back to his place to celebrate. Riley freshens up a bit (Of course, she has to wash Evan off of her before she fucks Scott!) and changes into something a bit more "comfortable" than the sexy--yet business-like--skirt and blouse she's already wearing. Interestingly, Scott is able to provide Riley with a black bra and matching panties--Riley is unwilling to ask where he got them! While Riley changes, she and Scott develop some nicely delivered and very appropriate dialog. Then, she aggressively pounces on Scott while he lies atop his bed...in doing so, she forever leaves her "good girl" image behind and raises his self esteem dramatically. They share some very nice kisses (great close-ups) while they hungrily caress and grope each other. Soon, Scott's lucky cock is deep inside--and al the way down--Riley's insatiable mouth. She also skillfully uses her talented hands to please him. In due course, Scott repays Riley's oral favors by greedily sucking, licking, and fingering her pretty pink pussy while she wiggles and squeals with delight. Foreplay, of course, eventually morphs into vaginal sex in which Scott and Riley have an absolutely amazing time giving each other as much pleasure as humanly possible. Just wait until you see Riley's eyes roll back into her head as pleasure overwhelms her! And, you'll appreciate Scott's frenzied, powerful, and feels-so-good redline-speed strokes as Riley expertly rides him like the champion cowgirl she is. In fact, Scott's frenzied strokes make Riley squirt a small stream when she cums during reverse! To finish up this "A-grade" scene, Scott shoots his load all over Riley's belly and onto her tits. She uses her hands to massage his semen into her skin and then sucks him dry.

Foreplay: Kissing, masturbation, hair pulling, fellatio, deep-throat, cunnilingus, clit-jacking, mild choking and face slapping.
Vaginal Positions: Cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, kneeling doggie, spoon, on-her-belly.
Anal Positions: None.
Girl cums: Repeatedly.
Pop: On her belly.

Sex rating: 4.50
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.50
Production values rating: 4.50

What I Liked Most:

  • Riley and Scott deliver their plot lines very professionally before the scene begins.
  • Riley aggressively goes after Scott...and, in doing so, raises his self-esteem logarithmically.
  • Riley and Scott share some extremely fine kisses at the beginning of foreplay.
  • As in Scenes Two and Four, Riley shows off her incredible and insatiable fellatio/handjob skills during foreplay and, later, during pussy-to-mouth.
  • Scott, famished for pussy, greedily devours and finger-fucks Riley's beautiful hole during foreplay. He also uses his fingers to jack her sensitive clit. She fucks back and encourages him with nasty talk.
  • Riley definitely has a good time throughout this scene. One look at her lust-filled eyes speaks volumes.
  • Scott fucks Riley with redline-speed strokes in reverse and in cowgirl. Riley rides him like a champion cowgirl.
  • Riley's body looks especially nice during this scene. I especially enjoyed her bouncing boobs.
  • Riley squirts a small stream of ejaculate when she cums during reverse cowgirl.
  • Riley shows off some very erotic moves during cowgirl. Her body moves very nicely in spoon, too.
  • The close-ups are superb in each position.
  • To conclude the scene, Scott shoots his load all over Riley's belly and onto her tits and bra. She uses her hands to massage his semen into her skin and then sucks him dry.

What Could Have Been Better:

  • I would prefer to see transitioning footage between positions.


The DVD-9 disc I reviewed contains a full-motion chapter selector, multiple chapters per scene, studio contact information, a nine-minute behind-the-scenes featurette, a manually-operated photo gallery, a two-minute self-running slide show (same pictures as the photo gallery), and trailers for eight Digital Playground releases. The BTS contains a day-by-day look at the shooting of the movie. Footage includes glimpses of the performers (primarily Riley) rehearsing, reading (and screwing up) their lines, fooling around (especially Evan Stone), standing around naked (Riley looks luscious after sex!), donning their wardrobe, having hard and pretty-girl still photos taken, getting their hair styled, and footage of Nicole Ray showing off her gymnast moves (very nice slow-motion effects). There's also some behind-the-camera footage of the shooting of the sex scenes. Although the quantity of the extras is below average in today's marketplace, the overall quality of the BTS feature makes up for it. Three stars. 

Final Thoughts

The best things about Riley Steele Honey include:
  • Scene Five. It's absolutely must-see. Don't miss it.
  • Riley Steele. Truth be told, it has taken a while for Riley to "grow" on me. But, I think she gets hotter and more enjoyable every time I see her. I'm hooked on Riley!
  • Nicole Ray. She's a damned good fuck...just the kind of girl I'd love to be with. She's demonstrative, cums often and hard, and squirts, too.
  • the quality of the acting. Even though this is not an "epic" feature, it feels so professional.
  • Danny Mountain's pop in Scene Three. Would that we could all shoot such fire hose-like streams! 
  • the storyline, which is plausible, entertaining, and acceptably realistic.

Riley Steele Honey could have been better if:

  • some anal sex had been included.
  • the color saturation had been a bit stronger in a couple of the scenes.
  • transitioning footage had connected each sexual position to the next.

Things I didn't like about Riley Steele Honey include:

  • nothing. Director Celeste and her cast gave me what I want to see in a porn movie. They didn't do anything that turned me off, but they did give me a whole hell of a lot to like.
Overall sex rating: 4.58
