Extra's: The only extras this time were some trailers and a photogallery.
Audio/Video Quality: Take It Like A Man was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by an uncredited director for distribution by Devil's Films. The lighting was flat and well done most of the time and there was little grain or other visual defects to speak of as a result. The camera moved around far too much but in all, I thought this looked better than almost any fetish video I've seen with a domination theme (which typically look dark and crappy). The composition of the shots was handled in such a manner as to show all the action but I'd rather more care was used to showcase the look of the ladies (and enhance their looks as is the goal of most porn) but it wasn't bad in any case. There were no compression artifacts here and the video noise was kept to a minimum as well. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English track was simple enough with no separation between the channels and only occasional background noise noticed (by the director giving orders). It covered the basics well enough and the cast was easily heard.

Body of Review: With gonzo sex shows dominating porn these days, a lot of fans are looking for the next big kink to get off to. I believe that each of us has some twist that gets us off, for whatever reason, and creativity on the part of porn producers is going to be tested to find new territory that has been overlooked or handled poorly in the past. One kind of twisted movie that might appeal to you that I watched the other day was Take It Like A Man, a show using female domination themes to have a cast of women handling men with strap on dildos. I've long held that such sex acts, while definitely an acquired taste and out of the ordinary, were not "gay as a tranny movie would be since the performers are enjoying each other and belong to the opposite sex. Like Strap Attack 3 and Stick it to the Man, the guys get more than they bargained for as the women treated them like they tend to be treated in the harder gonzo flicks available these days and there was certainly a circus act sex atmosphere in the three lengthy scenes offered up here. That said, if you're still interested, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast (the men weren't credited) and action, noting that if you're into this kind of thing, I suspect the movie was among the best available at this time:
Scene One: Delilah Strong, Veronica Rayne, Mistress, Sindy Lange, and Billy, were up first in the generic setting with a leather couch. Mistress, a manly looking redhead, was up first when she called a gay escort service to make an appointment with Billy. She dominated him with dirty talk and slapping, making him suck off her black strap on dildo for good measure. He gagged like he had never had a dick in his mouth and she called her pals to assist her with working over Billy's holes. The other gals looked much more attractive and after some training, he took their dildos in his mouth with greater ease. I wondered if his USMC (United States Marine Corps) tattoo was indicative of where he learned to suck cock but the gals seemed more interested in his sexual limits (and pushing way beyond them) than anything else as they verbally abused him. After forcing him to suck two at a time, the gals surrounding him decided it was time to screw his ass, taking turns as they rode him hard and spanked his ass. By this point in time, the circus act was in full bloom and he had issues keeping hard as he jerked off to their pummeling toys. They proceeded to screw him in various positions as they kept up the abuse, forcing him to do ATM (ass to mouth) and jerk off a small load on his abdomen.
Scene Two: Nicki Hunter, Desire Moore, and Missy Monroe, the gals featured on the upper front DVD cover, were up next as they took charge of a tied and bound guy. He had an apple in his mouth and Nicki seemed to be in charge of the pack as they surrounded him with their clear silicon dildos. Unlike the last guy, this one wasn't credited but he looked like a young Paul Thomas and he seemed to want out of the scene more than a few times as they shoved their toys into his mouth. He had no gag reflex so I was convinced he was more experienced at sucking cock than Billy was but these gals started off in a teasing manner rather than a dominatrix mode like last time too. This soon changed as he was subjected to verbal and actual abuse that seemed more severe than the last scene too. They also used a large handheld dildo that was much larger then the strap on dildos they wore to really work his mouth over. Missy got his ass first but Nicki took over and soon had him riding her in cowgirl fashion. The anal antics lasted much longer this time, going on for the better part of an hour before the unseen director asked for them to finish him off. He jerked off what Nicki called "a fucking volcano" in the best scene of the bunch.
Scene Three: Jamie Huxley, Sandra Romain, and Saana, were up last in the third scene to show some gals taking charge of a guy. They were a nice contrast of blonde, brunette and redhead who started off by fucking one another on the bed when a bald loser joined them. He was two hours late so they decided to punish him but he didn't need any coercion like the last two guys since he went right to sucking them off like a prize winning cock sucker (even handling two at a time with ease). They then screwed the willing asshole and he seemed to enjoy every second of it. This eventually led to the gals doing a double anal penetration on him (DAP) and to his credit; he never so much as winced as they hammered away at his ass in several positions. Like the others, his cock was smaller than average and the scene ended when he jerked off a small load that landed mostly on his hand.
Summary: Take It Like A Man was worth a rating of Recommended for fans of kinky sex in which women dominate men all the way. What separates a quality show of this nature from a piece of crap tends to be the production values and the way the cast handles the action. In a show like Strap Attack 3, the quality shines through as it did here just as in Strapon Chicks 15, the weaknesses were blaringly obvious. If anything, Take It Like A Man was even more hardcore than the Evil Angel release since there were some gang bang themes explored more thoroughly this time. In all though, there was a lot of kinky fuck for the buck and while it may not be my favorite type of sex, a lot of you will enjoy the weirdness factor alone.
