Extra's: For most of you, the bonus sex footage will be the best extra. It began with a 10.5 minute long scene between Michael Stefano and a gal named Elizabeth. She was a chunky chick and gave him some tease with a blowjob that wasn't bad. This was followed by a similar scene lasting 7.5 minutes with a gal named Candace. In all, the two mini-scenes were kind of interesting. I also really liked the 20.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature as it had the cast members doing more sex and having some fun in front of the camera. There was a nearly 5 minute long photoshoot with the gals of the cast too (you could select them individually or play all of them in order) too. The rest of the extras included a cumshot recap, a photogallery, a director's biography, and a double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Ultimate Asses 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; making the picture look well done. There was no watermark on the lower right hand corner as with other directors at the company and while the colors were slightly richer than normal, there were no compression artifacts or video noise noticed during the scenes. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English with minimal separation between the channels and a standard dynamic range, making it nothing special in this sense but not bad either.

Body of Review: Michael Stefano is one of those directors that might not be quite up to par with some of his colleagues but he still tries pretty hard to offer up a decent selection of scenes in his movies. Today's review of Ultimate Asses 5, the sequel to the awesome Ultimate Asses 4, was notable for including two of the best anal queens in porn; Tiffany Mynx and Flower Tucci along with some others that had meaty back doors. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used but the advertised "ultimate asses" might've been kind of generous to say the least:
Scene One: Ayana Angel,a thick black gal with some junk in her trunk, was up first wearing a small blue outfit outside as she teased the camera with some booty shaking. Her powerful legs enhanced her appeal too as did her face. The sex took place on a four poster bed with both John Strong and Michael Stefano pounding all three holes for pleasure. Michael went first and John joined her on a couch with the emphasis being on anal most of the time. Admittedly, she was able to handle a DP well enough but she let them do all the work in most positions and that weakened the scene for me. If I want passive gals, there are plenty working under contract elsewhere. The last load was dumped on her ass cheek so fans of facials will probably agree with me that it wasn't the best scene of the day.
Scene Two: Flower Tucci, the hotty on the front DVD cover, was up next in a scene with Michael Stefano. Starting out by sitting on a bar stool to enhance her lovely ass, she has built up a reputation for hot scenes regardless of who she works with for her aggressive sexuality and dirty mouth. This scene was no different as they both fingered her pink rosette before he banged her tight pussy. She wet him and sucked him off with some PTM (pussy to mouth) before he went down on her. He then switched gears and choked her as he tapped that ass of hers for some more waterworks. It ended with him pumping out a load into her mouth that she seemed to like swallowing. This was a great scene and showed off her talents nicely with plenty of energy and passion, not to mention heat.
Scene Three: Kandi Kream, a light skinned black gal with a huge booty and black fishnet top, was up next in a scene with John Strong and Michael Stefano. If this was the same gal from the bonus scene, she sure cleaned up well enough, but her strength was in her meaty behind. Her tease consisted mostly of her doing a booty clap (bouncing her cheeks together) and it progressed to each giving the other some minor oral before she rode him in her pussy a bit. She wasn't as active as Flower but she wasn't as passive as Ayana so the scene wasn't bad at all. Michael was the dominant male of the scene and John didn't join in until well into the scene but the weakest aspect of the scene was how tame she was during the anal and DP footage. It ended with a couple of vaginal creampies that oozed out of her.
Scene Four: Beauty, was a black gal with a fat ass (not "phat" but fat) who wore Hustler underwear as she shook her butt for the camera. Her face wasn't all that appealing to me either although some of you may appreciate her more than I did. She did the tease and then ground her big booty on Michael Stefano's clothed crotch, much to his delight. She sucked him off a little bit and he spanked her more than I suspect fans will spank to this scene though I'll admit she was a talented fellatrix. He boned her pussy for a few minutes and then moved onto her ass but she was a lazy fuck that sat back and let him do all the work. In case you haven't guessed, the scene did nothing for me. Blah!
Scene Five: Tiffany Mynx, the anal queen of the movie whose experience could probably teach Flower a trick or twelve, was up last in a scene designed to make me forget about "Beauty". She wore a pink skirt and neon blue fishnet top as she posed by the staircase, slapping her own ass to show how firm a 30-something ass can be. Manuel Ferrara went first as he sucked her ass to ready her for the scene but Michael Stefano got in some good loving too. All three of her holes were pilfered too as she sucked Manuel off handily and then took a pussy pounding from him. This gave way to some anal and a DP where she was always energetic and into the motion, meeting them stroke for stroke as she bounced up and down on their meaty members. The little noises she made were accentuated by the dirty talk she gave up and I thought the scene was a tie (or slightly better) than Flower's. Yum!
Summary: Ultimate Asses 5 could've easily been called Two Ultimate Asses since only two of them were toned and worthy of the title; Flower Tucci and Tiffany Mynx. To me at least, ultimate doesn't mean big and fat but large, well rounded, and toned. Sexually, a few of the gals were okay but only the two hotties mentioned really brought some solid skills to each portion of their scene. I get enough lazy gals in my personal life that seeing such on screen is a chore for me and not an experience I want to stroke off to. That said, I rated this one as a Rent It since two great scenes out of five isn't enough to elevate the rating but fans will want to see Tiffany and Flower here nonetheless. Check it out and I'm sure most of you will agree with my assessment on the general details, if not the quality of the physical characteristics (some people may think other gals were attractive but there's no getting around the lack of energy three of them had).
