Extra's: Like most releases from Red Light District, there were some great extras this time. My favorite was a toss up between the 22.5 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage by Juan Cuba and the 8.5 minutes of bonus footage (since that was all sex). Both had a lot to offer and I only wish other companies would figure out that extras can often make the difference between a release having replay value and being just a rental. There was also a cool section for the photoshoots of the gals, totally 11 minutes as a package, which seemed more like a BTS feature than just a series of photo sessions. The other extras were okay too, with the director's biography, a cum shot recap, a photogallery, trailers, and a double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Feeling Black 5 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot for DVD by director Michael Stefano for Red Light District. The colors were solid, the flesh tones accurate, and the lighting almost always good so you could say I was happy with the picture. It had some grain and wasn't Michael's best work but it was above average for a gonzo, something I generally expect to see from any release by Red Light District. The audio was your basic "I can hear the moans, groans, and sex noises" but nothing exceptional compared to the visuals and sexual passion displayed by most of the gals in the movie.

Body of Review: Is it possible to watch a lot of porn and not know about the director/company duo of Red Light District and Michael Stefano? The guy is a gonzo director that doesn't stick with one specific niche, preferring to embrace all kinds of sexual trickery in order to get himself, his partners, and more importantly, his fans, off. His latest release is Feeling Black 5, a movie that showcases some of the best black gals in porn as they take care of Michael and his co-workers in a number of sexually passionate scenes. Much like Feeling Black 4, he managed to provide a good bit of jungle fever for the fan of such action and the truth in advertising quotient was very high with nothing missing from the scenes that was advertised (or even hinted at) on the DVD cover. If this appeals to you, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and actions they took to get off, noting that no condoms were used here:
Scene One: Marie Luv, the lean cover gal that has launched many loads of late (in movies such as Full Anal Access 5), was first up as she teased the camera in a tiny blue outfit (tube top and short shorts), shaking her ass and playing with herself at the director's request. At first, you'd think she had no ass but once she started shaking it and bending over, there was no doubt she could please a fan in no time. Her partners for the scene included Michael Stefano and Manuel Ferrara; two of the heavyweights at Red Light District these days. The sex was energetic and she seemed to have some chemistry with them as they boned her mouth, pussy and ass (she also did some foot fetish stuff, PTM< ATM, a vaginal creampie, and took a load to the mouth); ending with a swallowing sequence. Once it was all said and done, she looked a bit haggard but keep in mind that you can find gals that look almost picture perfect at the end of a scene and the action tells you why (in other words, if a gal isn't willing to work up a sweat, she's not as active on camera). It was a good start to the show.
Scene Two: Alayah Sashu and Delicious, another couple of lean black gals, each dressed in a skimpy outfit, began their scene by shaking their ass while they were pressed up against a wall. They weren't as cute as Marie but their bodies were about the same in terms of raw sex appeal. The gals took on Michael Stefano and each other on a purple couch, doing a lot of oral in various positions as a primary act. They also screwed him with abandon and aggressively assisted while the other gal was getting some vaginal action. With PTM and PTOGM a frequent act here, it ended with a vaginal creampie that was licked out and swallowed. There wasn't as much chemistry this time but the energy levels were solid.
Scene Three: Kelly Star, a gal on the opposite end of the flesh spectrum as the previous three in the movie, showed that lean, tight asses are good for some folks but not all as she paraded her large butt before the camera outside in the midday sun. If you don't mind her less than beautiful face and all the junk in the trunk, you'll like her sheer determination to milk the nuts of John Strong and Michael Stefano this time. She blew them with practiced ease, took them in her pussy and ass (doing a DP for good measure), and ended with a "got milk" smile but she didn't swallow and you'll need more jungle fever to get into her energetic act than someone as cute as Marie.
Scene Four: Erica Sommers, a black gal with a well rounded ass and attractive face, seemed to be a compromise between the previously displayed body types as she managed to have some meat on her 22 year old body but maintained the overall appeal of a hotty. Her outfit was also pretty hot as the fishnet stockings with matching panties and top really accentuated her figure for director (and scene partner) Michael Stefano in the living room. She proved no stranger to sucking dick as she took him in her mouth as though it warmed her up too and he acted as though he was going to blow a nut right then. She did some vaginal with PTM but he did all the work and the following anal was slow (even if she begged for it and it was her "first time"). With some experience, she has a lot of potential but this scene fell flat, despite her attractive body and face. It ended when he came in her mouth but it was a small load (what do you expect from a guy getting so much sex) so her swallowing it wasn't that big a deal for me.
Scene Five: Persia, a cute black gal that looked like she popped straight out of a rap video in her neon green bikini top and cut off shorts that accentuated her powerful legs, had her tease footage in the midday sun before taking on Michael Stefano and John Strong. I liked her positive attitude, her sexual skill, and the manner in which she took them on with some of that "I'm gonna make you blow a load to the moon" appeal. Yeah, she took them in her mouth, pussy and ass with some taste testing and energy (not to mention chemistry) but fans of circus act sex will also like that she did a DPP (double pussy penetration with both of the guys going bareback in her pussy at once). There was also a standard DP but she could've done far less and it would've worked for me. For those who care, it ended with her swallowing like a seasoned professional. Yow!
Summary: Feeling Black 5 was worthy of at least a rating of Recommended or more if you have an itch for seeing black gals take care of the sexual needs of some talented white men. There were different types of body styles with some lean, others muscular, and still others chunky, but the bottom line is that Michael Stefano and Red Light District can't be said to be opposed to racial diversity in their movies. If this is the type of thing you want to see, you'll probably like it even more than I did but the quality of the cast, their sexual abilities, the extras, and the technical matters of the flick should be noted as very solid with few exceptions.
