Cast: Riley Steele, Erik Everhard, Kiara Diane, Manuel Ferrara, Mick Blue, Jenna Haze, Scott Nails
Length: 97:05 minutes
Date of Production: 10/6/2009
Extras: As is currently the case, the best “extra” is actually the second version of the movie in either DVD or Blu-ray depending on how you look at it. This might encourage slow adopters to pick up a high definition player or allow for the rest of us to lend a copy out in standard definition, a nice touch even if the upgraded package does add to the cost (which varies considerably depending on who you buy from). Otherwise, the standard package of extras applies here including the photogallery, trailers, and a 9:38 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. Jamall Johnson was working the camera and added some occasional humor but it was largely a straightforward look at the cast getting ready for their scenes or the aftermath of them, adding some minor value for anyone other than archivists like myself. The boxcover also had the scannable QR technology to allow properly equipped folks to see the trailer without clicking on the links to this review, the box including a catalog for the company toys some have found appealing.

Audio/Video Quality: In Riley’s Panties was presented in anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by talented director Robby D. for Digital Playgroundin the standard definition version, the high definition blu-ray version looking more artistic but not all that much better due to the yellow tint in most scenes and the other visual effects deployed. The composition of the scenes favored the ladies as well as close up camera angles, the fluidity of the camera work in question but the editing (by Kurt Tortcher) showing some care in most scenes. The audio for the standard definition was 5.1 Dolby Digital using a 48 kHz sampling rate and 448 Kbps aural bitrate, the separation between the channels coming from the music and ambient sounds more than the vocals. Still, the vocals were clearly understood in almost all cases and the music appropriate to a couples porno for those that care about the details.

Body of Review: Robby D. is widely considered one of the most talented professionals at Digital Playground, his directing skills on all sorts of shows proving this contention. His latest release is called In Riley’s Panties, a showcase piece for cute little Riley Steele and the theme of panties prevalent throughout the five scenes. As expected, Riley graced the bulk of the scenes (60% of them) but Jenna Haze and Kiara Diane were attractive too. The feature-lite approach was again used so it lacked a bit as a feature, the short trysts enough to rub one out as needed but decidedly best for fans of Riley. The back cover describes the movie like this: “Naughty fetishes came to life as gorgeous Riley Steele explores the kinky side of sexual pleasure. Erik Everhard loves to sniff the sweet juice from her panties before drilling deep and she gets them nice and wet for him. Manuel Ferrara and sexy Kiara Diane get off on her pussy socked panties wrapped around his hard rod for nasty playtime. Crotch rubbing, honey dripped pretty panties slide off Jenna Haze when she and Manuel get down and dirty.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Riley Steele, the sexy young blond featured on the front cover, was up first as she walked in on Erik Everhard, the guy wrapped up with using her soiled panties sexually. Worried that she would freak out, he was stunned when she took off her current pair and stuffed them in his face, masturbating with them to freshen their juiced up appeal. He took over warming her up with his hand before going down on her, Riley reciprocating by slobbing his knob and the two vaginally screwing after that. A few positions and some more oral later and Riley received his load of spunk to her face, rubbing it all over as she looked up at him.

Scene Two: Kiara Diane, a lean blond (with a variety of hair colors), was up next as she got ready to meet Riley, sitting on the bed as she primped. Manuel Ferrara walked in and their discussion led to her needing his credit card and him wanting some sex, the common variation of the world’s oldest profession presented in a more socially acceptable manner. She masturbated in her panties for him and he hovered over her before helping, the two enjoying going down on one another with a couple of vaginal positions tossed in to flesh the scene out. The sheer amount of close up work weakened the production again but this is a common attribute for the director but her modest amounts of eye contact, inability to suck more than the head of his pecker, and largely passive vaginal riding just didn’t click for me as much as her looks did. Manuel tried to spice things up by wrapping her panties around his cock as he porked her, beating off a load of population pudding to her face (and panties in her mouth) as she knelt before him.
Scene Three: Riley Steele, this time naked and looking in her extensive underwear drawer, was up next with panty stealing Mick Blue, the gal wanting him to return them so she could head out to meet her friend. They made a deal and kissed on it, her tease dance leading to Mick vaginally taking her when she bent over for him. She cleaned her juices off his rod and then really let loose riding him, continuing until Mick unleashed his spunk on her face to glaze it.
Scene Four: Jenna Haze, a lean little babe in need of cash, described her job as a webcam girl during an introduction, Manuel Ferrara sitting on the bed with her panties in his mouth while she played dress up for him. Her perky little ass enticed him and she knew all the right things to say, working him up to a lather using her soiled undies in his mouth and on his cock. This led to him eating her snatch and stuffing the panties in her mouth, the vaginal work leading to anal where Jenna rode just as aggressively. They shared the chemistry missing in the previous scenes, Jenna looking almost surreal in the high definition version of the scene given the artistic leaning of the director. The backdoor boning then resulted in his splooge being tossed all over her face with Jenna giving him some superior post coital head.
Scene Five: Riley Steele, up last as she masturbated in bed, woke up Scott Nails as he rested in deep slumber. The panty theme was less prominent here but Riley played along with it, Scott more interested in going down on her tap than the second hand apparel soaked with her juices. They screwed until Riley positioned to get his cock back inside of her pussy, grunting at the effort due to the manner in which he worked her over. She was an active rider though and seemed to enjoy the taste testing most of all, Scott depositing his semen in her open mouth as she laid in front of him.
Summary: In Riley’s Panties by director Robby D. for Digital Playground starred Riley Steele in three scenes that were shot a year ago, her allure enough to merit keeping track of but the stroke value best for those with quick triggers rather than raincoaters. The tint on the scenes, combined with the editing that looked like different camera settings were used at times but mixed back in, made me feel this was chugged out quickly (and sat on; look at the production date!) so unless you’re a fan of Riley already, this will not add a lot to her appeal. So fans should consider it a “must have” while the majority of porn aficionados will do best to try and Rent It first. In short, no one can deny the physical appeal of lovely Riley Steele given those blue eyes and girlish good looks but In Riley’s Panties was more focused on selling the fantasy of men preferring a woman’s used panties over the real thing just a bit too much for it work for me thematically even if the technical aspects were not up to par but give it a look and you will see just what I mean soon enough.
