Extras: The best extra for me wad the nearly 11.5 minute long section of strip tease performances by the ladies of the cast. Not all of them were equally talented but they seemed to do a decent job gyrating in front of and otherwise teasing the camera in a manner that should lose some loads out there. The 2.5 minute long Photoshoot montage was also pretty good but I particularly enjoyed the 14.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature as it gave the cast a chance to shine in the manner that Juan Cuba could coax out of them in the odd moments surrounding the scenes. There was also a popshot recap from the scenes and a photogallery with a double sided DVD cover if you're looking for other box covers.
Audio/Video Quality: Anal Expedition #9 was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by director Manuel Ferrara for release by Red Light District. The lighting could've been a bit better at times as it led to some extra grain but this was far more pleasing to the eye than most gonzo made at this time by other companies. There was no moiré and the fleshtones looked very accurate with the composition of the shots always enhancing the look of the gals. There were no compression artifacts observed and I thought the visual qualities of the show were well handled. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio track was about the same as always with the vocals heard easily enough, even if there was no separation between the channels and the dynamic range wasn't anything special. In general, the technical qualities looked and sounded quite solid.

Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara may have left his long time home at Red Light District earlier this year but he had made a lot of material before heading out and this is why we'll be seeing his RLD movies for months afterwards. His latest release is Anal Expedition #9, the sequel to Anal Expedition 8, where Manuel and his associates have anal sex with a number of skilled women in the usual settings of a house; typically on a couch. There was an effort to mix it up this time and provide some extra footage that would've been right at home in other RLD/PXP movies. That said, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used by the men and that all the ladies did anal:
Scene One: Alicia Angel, a great looking lean brunette with an all natural body, was up first as she participated in a blow bang with a horde of guys surrounding her as she took turns working their shafts (orally and with her hands) while Manuel Ferrara watched from the second story of the house into the cavernous living room. The blow bang crew was mostly second and third stringers but she took good care of all of them, ending up with five loads to her face. She then walked up the stairs to greet Manuel once more, showing him how she saved her ass for him alone. She did ATM with the toy stretching her anal passage and he wasted no time plunging deep inside her rectum when given the chance to do so. Once she was on top, she gave up a very active ride in this regard, proving her skills matched her looks in terms of quality. She was enthusiastic, energetic, and showed some chemistry with him, ending the scene by swallowing his spew from the pipe.
Scene Two: Camilla, another brunette although not quite as attractive as Alicia, was up next as she puffed away on a cancer stick and talked a little during the interview portion of the scene. Her fetish outfit looked good on her curvy body, from the fishnet stockings to the patent leather camisole and shorts, the get up enhanced what she had to offer more than a little bit. Her initial scene partner was Manuel Ferrara and she blew him shortly after she stopped playing with her anal toy, providing the kind of opportunity he sought from her to screw her ass within minutes. He finished up rather quickly after dumping a load, after which he was replaced by Michael Stefano. Michael went right for the ass too, and her fleshy ass appealed to him enough that all the preliminaries weren't needed to get him ready. They were on the bed and the two verbally sparred as he slapped her around a little. By the time he dropped his load into her mouth, nearly an hour had mysteriously disappeared on me. It sure went by quickly given the nature of gonzo porn but this scene was also pretty solid.
Scene Three: Chloe Dior, a light haired gal with large DSLs (dick sucking lips), was up next as she told Manuel how pissed off she was at fleshy Georgia Peach. For her part, Georgia was on the couch getting fucked by Michael Stefano vaginally (though with a large metallic colored anal plug firmly in place). Chloe watched and then started to masturbate as she told him how best to bone her friend in the ass, leading to the trio having some monkey love sex together. By the time all was said and done, both gals took some major cock in their holes, with the greatest weakness of the scene being that the gals didn't participate all that much when they weren't on the receiving end of the screwing. There was ATM and all the usual variations, with the scene ending as Chloe took the mouthful of semen and swapped it out with her slutty pal Georgia to swallow.
Scene Four: Kinzie Kenner, the hotty on the front DVD cover, was up next as she knelt on the floor to power fuck her ass with a large anal toy. After supplying her with a nice alternative to the fake cock, Manuel Ferrara got a sweet blowjob from her, leading to her crawling after him as he led her to a comfy couch in another room. He practically fisted her ass, feeding her some of it off his hand, before she went to oral round two. They continued to screw anally and he used his toes to fuck her ass as well, showing increasing amounts of passion, heat, and chemistry between the couple. The movie was already over two hours old when she took the huge load of semen into her mouth but she didn't swallow; allowing it to stream down her chest instead. Whew!
Scene Five: Sandra Romain, dressed to kill in a red PVC corset and black fishnet stockings, showed off her new red hair look as she played with dapper Sean Michaels, James Deen, and Michael Stefano. Say what you will about her looks but her sexual skills have long been in the spotlight as among the very best that the porn world has to offer. Sean's meaty rod was just what her libido needed and seeing her take him in the ass after a great blowjob was worthy enough even if it had ended there. Thankfully, she was up for even more, taking care of the trio of male suitors as though she were on fire, and giving some nameless lame fifth wheel loser a blowjob too. The usual DP gave way to her doing a DAP (two dicks in the ass at the same time), with her asking for more repeatedly. There were more circus act sex tricks too but it ended as expected with a bunch of loads to her face and mouth. Yikes!
Summary: Anal Expedition #9 was worthy being Recommended for the sheer amount of anal fuck for the buck, the fine casting choices, and the extras included on the DVD as much as the technical values and care that Manuel and associates showed in making it. The performances weren't all the very best I've seen from the company but it was well worth the cost given the replay and stroke value it had. Manuel Ferrara is still learning his craft as a director but if this is any evidence as to where he was at before leaving RLD, I suspect he'll have a lengthy and prosperous career ahead of him. Check it out and you'll see what I mean.
