Extras: The best extra for me was the bonus blowjob scene between the lovely Kaylynn and Alex Rox. I described it below and hope you enjoy it as it was a lot of fun. There was also an interesting 11 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Juan Cuba that had the ladies doing what they do best before, during, and after their scenes. There was also a photogallery and a double sided DVD cover though the second side was just a bunch of covers to other releases.
Audio/Video Quality: Round Butt Sluts was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Manuel Ferrara for Platinum X Pictures. The fleshtones were very solid, the lighting generally very well done, and the camera angles were flattering to the women in almost all of the scenes. Composition of the scenes is more important than some producers seem to realize so I was happy that Manuel took his time with most of these scenes with this in mind; a fact he has received little recognition for elsewhere on the net or in publication. There will be some of you that disapprove of the small, light watermark in the lower right hand corner of the picture but this isn't that uncommon these days and I barely noticed it as the action was towards the center of the screen. The 2.0 Dolby Digital encoded stereo English audio was basic and allowed me to hear the cast but there was no big separation between the channels and the dynamic range was kind of average.

Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is one of the few porn studs to prove he is more than just a meat puppet in porn, directing many well received gonzo movies for companies like Platinum X Pictures until recently when he moved on to another company. While I'm not typically a fan of many things from France, he's a true exception to the rule as he combines a true love of women as well as a sex drive that pushes him to further heights as he makes his movies. His latest flick is Round Butt Sluts, a collection of scenes just about guaranteed to get you stroking your cock as the women tease the camera with their backsides so tauntingly with skill. Without going into too much detail, here's a quick look at the scenes of the movie, noting that all of them were solid and none used condoms:
Scene One: Sydnee Capri, an attractive black gal wearing neon green fishnets and slowly teasing the camera as she ground her ass at Manuel's direction, was up first in a scene with muscular Joachim Kessef and leaner Michael Stefano in the bedroom. She masturbated with a small anal plug to ready herself for some backdoor action, tasting it ATM style to show she wasn't a priss. Michael snacked on her butt crack while she blew Joachim, providing some nice contrast between the skin tones of the trio (she was in the middle of them metaphorically too). The gag fucking was messy but showed she wasn't typical and she was soon bumping uglies with the men, one at a time in her pussy and ass, then leading to a short DP. It wasn't a bad ride to start with and I liked that someone with some extra junk in her trunk was allowed to go first but aside from actively taste testing them out of her holes, she seemed slightly out of place as a nasty slutty type. The scene ended when they rubbed out loads to her face and mouth, sealing the deal that labeled her a round butt slut.
Scene Two: Sandra Romain, on of the top anal queens in porn with a very appealing derriere, was up next as she followed the formula and teased the camera in her light blue g-string that rode up the crack of her ass. Her ability to tease has long been established and this was no exception to that rule with a lot of heat generated early on in the scene. She was so good in fact that Manuel Ferrara saved her for himself, spanking her as she played with him on the couch. There was some face sitting (where she nearly suffocated him) and a short but sweet blowjob but it was the sexually aggressive screwing the two did (both vaginal and anal) that really worked the best. All the trimmings aside, she's an incredible lay who conveys passion in almost all of her scenes. The two of them seemed especially into the action this time too, making all the positions and variations icing on the cake since she convinced me she really did want him as she stated several times. She may not look like Jenna or one of the other hot babes of the industry but her skill was off the charts in comparison. Whew!
Scene Three: Flower Tucci, wearing some newly reddened hair and darker blue fishnets, was up next and she's another major anal queen that has few peers in the industry. While she does have a larger than normal ass, the level of comfort she generates with it is another case of a gal transcending the industry's desire to see boyish 18 year olds over quality hotties of any age. Well, after some great tease, including some work with a large anal plug to get ready for her scene, Joachim Kessef came up behind her and started banging her ass without any filler. He ate her ass out after some extensive banging and she provided great dirty talk to enhance the action, eventually leading to some solid vaginal boning too. The pop shot was minimal but I appreciated how active both of them were in the scene, providing solid replay value to enjoy repeatedly.
Scene Four: Gianna, another gal with an ample sample of an ass, was up next on the red couch. Aside from her increasingly noticeable skills, her beautiful face and curvy body have been getting a lot more press lately as she dominates many of the movies devoted to large breasts. Thankfully, her ass is also a wonder to behold and her fishnet outfit enhanced her all around look more than a little bit. Her partner for the scene was Joachim Kessef (no wonder his pops were slight) and he seemed infatuated with her chest more than ass too as he played with those tig old bitties before the two kissed. She dropped to her knees to provide him with a very heated throat fuck; her breasts swaying as she actively inhaled his cock in her mouth. It was perhaps the best blowjob of the show with lots of spitting, gagging, and eye contact to flesh out the deepthroating skills she displayed. She stuck with vaginal sex but provided such a sweet ride that I doubt any straight men will care. Joachim even let her do some nice face sitting towards the end of the scene. The scene ended when he rubbed out a load, and she assisted to get more semen, swallowing it down like some of the other gals did. Good job!
Scene Five: Alexis Malone, the cute bleach blonde whose ass was showcased on the front DVD cover (airbrushed a little but still worth a lot of love), finished up this veritable plethora of pussy as she followed the formula to tease before taking on Manuel Ferrara in the living room. I haven't seen much of her lately so it was good to see her again with such care given her in a scene. They both gave each other head with equal vigor, proving to be well equipped to handle one another on the couch. She gave him an extensive handjob as well as a throat to fuck before they got into an active ride in her tight pussy. They did a number of positions with her providing an active ride in each of them; showing up many gals new to the biz that lay there like the world owes them something. She was the one to jerk him off at the end of the scene into her mouth, providing the best scene of hers I've seen in a while (and a fine compliment to the movie as a whole).
Bonus Scene: Kaylynn, a major hotty with a great ass and the recipient of many awards for her oral skills over the years had a blowjob only scene with Alex Rox. She started out by wearing a weird mask and he played Tarzan by picking her up to show off her fantastic ass. They were already kissing romantically when the scene director (he sounded familiar but it sure wasn't Manuel Ferrara) was trying to get them into the sex acts for the show. If you've never seen her in action, the scene will be a real treat for you to enjoy.
Summary: Round Butt Sluts was another ass related title worth a rating of Highly Recommended for the quality of the women, the technical values, the extras, and the amount of fuck for the buck handled so well in terms of replay value. Each scene, even the splendid bonus scene, was above average and seeing hotties like Flower rely more on their appeal than on the waterworks she usually employs added something intangible to the mix. There were some rough edges at times and I look forward to seeing his titles coming up from his new home but he's done such a great job at Red Light District/Platinum X Pictures that I wonder how he'll be able to top himself. If you like tease, round asses, and lots of passionate fun, give Round Butt Sluts a chance. I think you'll be happy.
