Extra's: From experience, I knew that most fans would appreciate the bonus sex scene more than anything else and as it focused in on a curvy brunette in a red and black fetish outfit (I loved those black fishnet stockings), I noticed she was a decidedly appealing gal I've seen many times before; Suzy Diamond. She teased to please and Erik went straight to her ass to rim her thoroughly as her ass swayed in the air. He went to boning her before the initial blowjob but eventually he got plenty of head too. They did it all, vaginal, anal, and a wad to her mouth slowly sucked out as she jerked him off inside her. All 33.5 minutes were nicely used and the scene was a good one, especially for a bonus scene. The 15.5 minutes of Behind the Scenes was shorter than I expected but it was fun more than centered on sex this time (with some "civilians" caught up in the background talking to them). The other extras included the usual pop shot compilation from the scenes, a photogallery, some trailers, and a double sided DVD cover but the first two were the only ones that added any real value for me.

Audio/Video Quality: Ass Obsessed 4 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by director Erik Everhard for distribution by Red Light District. Some of the lighting was weak in a few spots, causing grain and minor video noise but most of the time, it looked just fine. The composition of the shots was almost always done with the look of the gals in mind, enhancing them enough to cover up most of their minor flaws. The editing helped in this regard too, making the movie look like it was shot by an experienced professional (unlike so many other gonzo releases these days). There were no compression artifacts to speak of and that gave me the impression that the two discs were used to minimize and visual flaws rather than act solely as a marketing point. The stereo English audio was pretty basic, as expected, with nothing great about it but it wasn't bad either.
Body of Review: Erik Everhard is an acquired taste to some people since he acts like he's in heat whenever he's in a scene. This driving energy of his offends some (perhaps those that can't keep up with him), entices others that wish they knew how he did it, and manages to intrigue the rest of us more often than not. With many solid hits under his belt, his latest DVD set was Ass Obsessed 4: Collector's Edition, a series of scenes on two DVDs that offered up a lot of anal action as Erik and crew traveled to Europe once more. Like Ass Obsessed 3, the gals were attractive, generally well versed in the art of milking a nut, and put in scenarios that any of us could appreciate. That said, here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that none of them were throwaway scenes in terms of heat:
Scene One: Francesca Felucci, a lean gal wearing a tiny bathing suit consisting of a few strands of blue material, was up first as she stood on the foreign street corner to promote Red Like District DVDs. It was a cute bit of self promotion and Francesca's great body was hot (and her face looked a lot like a young Savanna Samson). Steve Holmes, Robert Rosenberg, and Erik Everhard were her partners in the small public porn shop with Steve getting her to sit on his face to start the sex while his pals got some head. The guys soon were banging her pussy and ass in several positions on the floor of the store, giving her some DP's, PTM, ATM, and anything else they thought of. I would've preferred it if the guys had let her do the dirty talking rather than blather on endlessly themselves (even if she prattled on in a foreign tongue, viewers would've gotten the idea) but the sex wasn't bad at all. It ended with a facial and a couple of anal creampies that she shot out of her ass; marking the scene as decently made.
Scene Two: Courtney Cummz, a brunette with a sweet looking ass and face, was up next as she cleaned the house in her stripper maid outfit with PVC corset, collar, gloves, and fishnet stockings with thong panties. She seemed to be jilling herself with the duster so Erik Everhard let her go to work cleaning his pipes, settling initially for a sultry blowjob as he sat back on the couch. He gave her some oral too and proceeded to bang away like crazy but her claim to fame here was how energetically she rode him until her pussy was raw. That didn't prove to be a problem for her though since she went from vaginal to anal with him, and even though she wasn't quite as passionate about riding it, her dirty talk kept me from caring. He unloaded into her mouth and she was good about swallowing it down, making the scene a fine addition to the DVD.
Scene Three: Gilda Joy, another hotty (this one showcased on the front DVD cover), was up next as she strolled through the streets looking like a mainstream star in a short dress and tiny thong. This attracted the attention of Toni Ribas who had been talking with Erik (holding the camera) and the trio walked down the crowded street with her not initially noticing them. She teased Toni and they went back to the usual room for some fun after warming up in the dark foyer to the apartment building. Her oral wasn't as skilled as Courtney's performance but it was playful enough that most men wouldn't care a bit, with her stripping for the guys' kind of a nice addition to the mix. She was fairly energetic at riding him in her pussy and played with an anal toy (an anal plug with a tail attached) so I knew she was preparing for him to invade her backside soon enough. He tapped the ass next, and while it revealed some blemishes, they weren't fatal flaws in her all natural body. After all was said and done, she did plenty of taste testing and jerked out a load into her face.
Scene Four: Tiffany Hopkins, an angelic brunette wearing a princess outfit, complete with tiera, was up next as she stepped into the house to do a scene with John Strong, Robert Rosenberg, and Erik Everhard after she came late to dinner. He had her don a blindfold to surprise her and in walked John dressed like a Mafioso with a riding crop. The others joined in and she was sucking them all off with glee to make up for her supposed transgressions. This was a nice way to see her eyes showcased (incredibly brilliant blue) and much of it was shot in POV fashion. They took turns boning her pussy and ass after that, spanking her and acting roughly towards her before putting a ball gag in her mouth and unloading their semen on her face. She wasn't as energetic or skilled (except in the oral phase of the scene) as some of the others but she was fresh enough to warrant repeated viewings.
Scene Five: Suzanne Brend and Kitty Sixx, were up last and charged with the responsibility for making the ending a memorable one. Erik Everhard, Steve Holmes, Robert Rosenberg, and Toni Ribas, met them in a small gymnasium where the gals were working out in bathing suits. Toni took the lead and his pals followed as they all seemed to know what kind of a workout they wanted. The gals were compliant and showed that a little diversity (blonde and brunette) was a good thing, leaving no hole unutilized. Oral, vaginal, anal, DP, taste testing and playful sex ensued and the scene turned into a mini-orgy of tricks before it ended with some healthy loads to the mouth that were swapped a little for good measure.
Summary: Ass Obsessed 4 was not a perfect DVD set but it was easily worth a rating of Recommended for the fine cast, the solid action, and the technical values Erik is known for as a director. The extras also added some value to the set and I think this volume was nearly as good as others in the series that I've had the pleasure of reviewing. Erik manages to come up with a nice mix of gals here with some looking sluttier than others while some looked so innocent that many of you would be lucky to unzip before letting loose. In all, you generally can't go wrong with his works on DVD which is why he's such an invaluable member of the directing team at Red Light District. If you're looking for a DVD set that has plenty of fuck for the buck, this is well worth your time and money so check it out.
