Cast: Lexington Steele, Jessie J., Mr. Marcus, Diana De Voe, Vanessa Blue, Paige La Salle, Dora, Paulina, John Strong, Jessica, Erik Everhard
Length: 140 minutes
Date of Production: 10/18/2002 (compilation only)
Extra's: The extras were very minimal this time and only included a photogallery, a cumshot recap, and a paper insert. Thankfully, the compilation itself was fairly lengthy.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as originally shot for each scene in this compilation. The levels of grain and lighting varied a bit but the sexual tension and warmth often kept me from noticing. The audio was presented in monaural English and suffered from some wind noise and varying levels but overall was also okay for the type of gonzo production this was.
Body of Review: Lexington Steele is one of the seven wonders of the porn world and has been for quite some time. He has been called many things over the years and has had to deal with a number of setbacks but he has always been in great demand for his services. One of the companies where he worked at for dozens of movies was Anabolic, the breeding ground for such production companies as Red Light District, Platinum X Pictures and many others (when their principles left Anabolic to form more performer-friendly deals). In an attempt to provide fans with a compilation of scenes with the powerful Lexington Steele, the company has started a series of releases focusing on his better scenes with them and the latest one is The Black Bastard 5. Fans of Lex's will definitely want to check this one out as the scenes were usually very well done and showed this tower of power at his best. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:

Scene One: Up Your Ass 19: D-Mike John: 2002: Jessie, the blonde on the front DVD cover, was a bit chunky as she asked Lexington and Marcus to bone her. She slobbed their knobs and they took turns screwing her pussy and ass with a practiced ease of the true professionals that they were. The action got a bit sick when the circus act stuff started, primarily DPP (double pussy) and DAP (double anal) with the usual PTM and ATM respectively. She was one of the few gals that could keep up with these two studs and the scene had a lot of warmth and chemistry despite the extreme nature of the sex. It's not all that common that a gal can take all of Lex into her ass so the fact is that her ability to take both of them was awe inspiring.
Scene Two: Women Of Color 3: D-Lexington Steele: 2002: Diana and Vanessa, a couple of curvy black gals that were a bit on the heavy side (perhaps "thick" is a better description), started off the scene wearing some hot lingerie and teasing the camera as they oiled one another up. While not my favorite partners for the Lexinator, they looked pretty hot here and ready to fuck. Lexington, as director and star of the scene, seemed anxious to bone each of them as he entered into the room only to find them doing each other. The sex was oral and straight only but the heat was off the scale as the trio screwed in many positions. I also thought the chemistry was solid as they did the deed; making this a great scene for fans.
Scene Three: Balls Deep 2: D-Lexington Steele: 2001: Paige, a cutie that looked to have a mixed racial background with a super lean body, took on the mighty Lexington on a couch after claiming to want him in the tease section of the scene. Her looks didn't hurt but I'll bet her body did as he impaled her throat and pussy in a few different positions. I think her over the top performance, particularly the vocals, was a bit annoying at times but at least you can't say she dodged the racial bullet. When she bent over, I admit that her ass looked better but that's almost always the case so she gets few extra points in that regard but her ability to ride the black stallion to orgasm was pretty impressive nonetheless.
Scene Four: Nice Rack 1: D-Vince Vouyer: 1998: Dora, a nasty looking European gal claiming to be 21 years old (yeah, right) with breasts that were 97 centimeters around, wasted no time blowing Lex for the camera. She then allowed him the pleasure of screwing her pussy in a host of different angles before he popped his load onto her. Personally, I found the huge scar on her leg (by the crotch) to be extremely noticeable and that killed some of the heat for me, even though she did PTM a bit. I didn't think there was any real chemistry or heat but the mechanical aspects of the scene were decent so your mileage may vary.
Scene Five: World Sex Tour 28: D-Christopher Alexander: 2003: Paulina, a 19 year old gal from the Ukraine, wore a blue dress and had brunette, kinky hair as Lex and John warmed up with her on a couch. She looked a bit like mainstream actress Minnie Driver but I won't hold that against her since her sexual skills were probably much more refined. This was an unusual scene in that it had fairly little oral action to it; when she got warmed up, it was straight to the pussy for her. The guys then did a DPP and a DP after which she sucked down their loads like a professional. I thought the scene was solid in terms of heat and even had a bit of chemistry but most of you will enjoy it for the limit testing she went through.
Scene Six: Jessica, a very attractive blonde with a curvy body and a sweet ass, took on both Lexington and Erik in a room that was empty except for a mattress on the floor. I completely enjoyed the tease footage and wish it lasted far longer but the sex was juiced up too as the trio screwed in many positions and did everything I'd want them too. The oral, straight and even backdoor action was great with all the chemistry and heat I could ask for in a scene. Whew!
Summary: If you enjoyed Volume 8, Volume 7, and Volume 6, you'll think this one is worth at least a rating of Recommended. The gals varied a lot more here, as did the technical qualities, but it was hard to deny that when things clicked this time, they were burning hot. Lexington is now releasing porn for some other company with his own label but you can bet that scenes such as these contributed to his popularity over the years. I just wished that I could identify the last scene on the DVD since it was really solid in all ways (feel free to email me with any help you can give).
