Cast: Paola Rey, Manuel Ferrara, Nicole Brazzle, Tee Reel, Sascha, Courtney Cummz, Svetlana, Steve Holmes, Cali Marie, Cherish, John Strong, Sunshine, Katsumi & Jake Malone in a bonus scene (oral only)
Length: 134.5 minutes
Date of Production: 10/24/2004
Extra's: The first noteworthy extra would be the 16+ minutes of Behind the Scenes footage that gave the cast some extra time to shine before the camera. The next best extra was the bonus scene between Katsumi and Jake Malone where she donned rubber gloves to jerk him off and then orally get him off. It last a bit over 16 minutes and was done in point of view (POV) fashion. The only other extras were a photogallery and a double sided DVD cover (the cover only had advertising on the second side though).
Audio/Video Quality: Cum Stained Casting Couch was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio that it was shot in by director Jake Malone. I know some fans will be slightly put off by the barely visible Red Light District watermark in the lower right hand corner but for the most part, the action was good enough to keep me from noticing. Otherwise, the lighting was solid, the camera work well done, and the editing only bothersome in the second scene (as though something were wrong with Sascha's face). There were no compression artifacts or video noise and the action was easy to see throughout the show. The audio was presented in stereo English but it wasn't anything special since the separation between the channels was minimal and the dynamic range kind of limited.

Body of Review: One of those gonzo directors you don't hear much about is performer Jake Malone. With about a dozen titles under his directorial belt, including winners such as Ass Feast and Fuck Dolls, the guy has already proven he can point a camera with the best of them and find talented fuck bunnies to showcase nicely. Red Light District obviously sees him as a talented guy too since they have been giving him the opportunity to work more and more, giving me yet another reason to check out their company from time to time (as if I needed another good director from them). The main advertising gimmick this time was a pair of twins, Cherish and Cali Marie, but to be frank about it, they were the weakest scene of the bunch with some truly solid performances by the others. If you enjoy gonzo porn, this DVD is well worth checking out so here's a brief look at the scenes to give you an idea if this is what you're looking for:
Scene One: Paola Rey, a Latina cutie with an all natural body (hailing from Rio De Janeiro), began her scene with some nice tease footage and trying on some outfits that really worked for me. She had some nice moves as she danced but I wanted to see what Manuel Ferrara could do for her while they had sex. She seemed to like it when he went down on her and her reciprocation of the oral was nicely done too. He even sucked her toes as he screwed her tight pussy at one point. She ground her hips into his penis and rode him hard (and wet) before doing some PTM. It ended with a facial but her energy was top notch as was the chemistry.
Scene Two: Nicole Brazzle, a lean gal attempting a southern accent (though she slipped into a poor Australian twang at times too), claimed to be 22 years old (from Waverly, Tennessee), as she teased the camera with her long blonde hair and lean body. Her primary partner was black stud Tee Reel but they were joined by Sasha as she proved her claim of being great at giving head. The screwing wasn't as energetic as Paola but she took them in a number of positions with a good amount of vigor before they glazed her face.
Scene Three: Courtney Cummz, a beautiful gal with a pierced but otherwise all natural body, was also 22 years old and her blonde streaked brown hair looked good on her as she teased the camera before her scene with Manuel Ferrara on the couch. Her oral skills weren't as developed as the others (she wasn't a slacker though, doing both PTM and ATM) yet her ability to handle a dick in her pussy was solid, as was her anal skills. Fans may also enjoy that she enjoyed rimming him but for someone new to porn, she had a lot going for her. She had fun at the end squirting semen out of her ass onto the couch, rug, and a plate set up for her.
Scene Four: Svetlana, yet another 22 year old, was blonde with ice blue eyes, telling us she was from the Ukraine but in the states for four years (living in my old birth place of Boston). Her all natural body looked good and her face reminded me of porn veteran Joelean (a good thing, mind you) but she looked younger than she claimed to be. Her partners were Steve Holmes and Manuel Ferrara on the couch and her oral was okay but the intercourse much more heated as she took them both on with a DP being the ultimate act for her in this, her fifth scene since starting to make pornos. It ended when she took their loads into her mouth and swallowed them without flinching.
Scene Five: Cali Marie and Cherish, the 19 year old twins on the front DVD cover had been in about ten scenes by this point as they sought the bright lights of the big city having left Ohio recently. They didn't do a lot of tease but John Strong and Steve Holmes seemed to enjoy them nonetheless on their couch. Sexually speaking, the gals were the least talented of the cast but they were twins so nobody really cared. Cherish was the most extreme, doing a DP, but they weren't terrible as they took a lot of dick by the men here. Perhaps with some more practice, they will truly shine but this scene was only noteworthy due to the relationship of the gals (being twins and all). They didn't do any lesbian stuff on one another (incest not being legally best I'm guessing) but they did assist one another while taking the men on. Still, it wasn't a great scene, just conceptually interesting.
Scene Six: Sunshine, the sole brunette and an 18 year old Asian/Black mix to boot, wore the hottest outfit of the cast with the large netted pattern really showcasing her lovely body as she teased the camera. I knew she'd be doing anal when she fingered her ass (and licked the finger clean) but this exotic cutie had a perfect ass with a short trimmed crotch for those who care. Her partners were John Strong and Steve Holmes and they seemed to be very attracted to her as they groped and played with her to warm up. She was a skilled fellatrix and managed them in her pussy and ass (including a DP) like a seasoned champion, even if not quite as energetically as a few of the others here. It ended with a facial glazing but she has a ways to go to become a true porn star.
Summary: Cum Stained Casting Couch was another solid hit by director Jake Malone and I can see where he'll become another feather in the cap of Red Light District if given enough room to grow. I thought the solid amount of fuck for the buck was worth a rating of Highly Recommended even with the twins lackadaisical performance with the others often shining like never before, the extras worth watching more than once and the technical values so high end. In short, you'll be milking out loads to Cum Stained Casting Couch for a long, hard time if you pick this one up.
