Extra's: The best extras will be the 6 bonus scenes that I described below; three each for the two discs comprising the package. The scenes were related in the sense that each group of them starred the spotlighted gal from the disc (one disc had Naomi while the other had Sascha Grey) but your personal mileage will vary according to how many of the scenes you already own or have seen during previous rentals. There were two separate and short Behind the Scenes features; a 7.5 minute long one for Naomi's disc and a 9 minute long one for Sasha's disc; each providing a pop shot compilation and photogallery (along with the cardboard box holding the two discs and the double sided DVD covers).

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Gang Bang 5 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director John Strong for release by Red Light District, with him, Jake Malone, and Martin Del Toro working the other cameras. As is usually the case, the lighting was decent and this limited the amount of grain to a bare minimum but there were some shadows at times. The composition of the camera angles wasn't always the best it could be to enhance the look of the ladies but the editing and other aspects of the show covered most of the flaws well enough to keep me from complaining too loudly. There was no light watermark on the lower right hand corner; yet another release by the company that gives loyal fans what they want. The problem with large gang bangs is that with so many participants, it can be tough to capture all the action without interfering with the proceedings, something a number of directors have done in the past (barking out orders or distracting the cast in other ways). The DVD had no compression artifacts and seemed to be mastered fairly well too. The audio was presented in the standard 2.0 Dolby Digital but the vocals, while clear, were about what I expected from a gonzo production.

Body of Review: John Strong has always appeared to be a gentleman and courteous in his dealings with me so it should come as no surprise that I like a lot of his work in gonzo porn. While he has worked elsewhere, his directing and performing work for Red Light District has shown a fair amount of growth, though to be fair, his strong suit is to simply let the performers be who they are and allow them to push their limits as far as they are willing to do. Unlike some directors that focus on arty farty styles of direction, he simply records what takes place and many fans seem to appreciate this, making him one of the number one directors at the company these days. His latest release in my mitts is Gang Bang 5, a movie that provides two gang bangs, one starring Naomi and the other starring Sasha Grey; in hour long scenes along with a trio each of their best scenes for the RLD/PXP universe. Both ladies have their strong points and John seemed to capture them well with the use of Jake and Martin on assisting cameras, making this 5+ hour double disc set a very value oriented one for those who haven't already acquired the bonus scenes. That said, here's a look at all the scenes of the movie, noting that no condoms were used at all:

Scene One: Naomi, the gal on the front cover wearing the fetish shorts that so nicely displayed her perfect ass, was up first as she teased the camera for awhile by the outside pool and in the house. She has lost weight since this was made but her ass was great here; and showcased in a very pleasing manner with oil, an anal plug, and the usual care that went into the tease. Once her appeal was established, she went inside the house to take on Talon, Brian Surewood, Dick Delaware, John Strong, Tony T., Arnold Schwartzenpecker, Benjamin Brat, Pascal St. James(?), Byron Long, Jenner, Harley, and one or two other mopes of relatively low quality, with John Strong (the director) getting first dibs on her as she inhaled his cock on the red couch. Some anal beads were used too but within moments, more men joined them to fill her ass, pussy, and mouth in numerous combinations with an emphasis on spanking, hair pulling, and DP's. The dynamic was that she went from room to room without being given any chance to catch her breath, demanding the many men fuck her or provide cock service on her three holes. She did some airtight moves too but she picked up quite an entourage of followers as the men chased her throughout the house to get more from her. She was sweaty, seemed into the action, and displayed a lot of passion for her trade as she took them on in droves; always demanding "More" from them. While I'm not into group gropes that I'm not participating in, Naomi is one of the few gals that can work large numbers and come across as being as one with the action (a tribute to her Zen-like abilities). When it eventually ended, the men came in her mouth for her to swallow in groups (with a few guys seeming to be on her shit list since she closed up for their seed; perhaps not impressing her with their population pudding). The glazed face look of the rest of the seed was such that John picked her up, brought her out back, and tossed her in the pool to clean up as Jake continued his streaming commentary as he did throughout the movie. Wow!

Scene Two: Sasha Grey, a very cute brunette with a youthful appeal, was up first on the second disc as she walked around in the shade outdoors to blow random men while she paraded about in her red & black fetish outfit. This led to her going into the heavily populated living room for an initial blow bang with guys like Mark Wood, Seth Dickens, Brian Surewood, Sascha, Steven French, Joe Rock, Dick Nasty, Kyle Stone, Lefty LaRue, Chris Charming, Arnold Schwartzenpecker, Richard Kline/Raymond, Mike Hash, Joe Blow, and Jean-Claude Batiste; supposedly resulting in 15 or so men jumping her. Like the previous scene, they hammered away at her three holes with some DP footage and airtight work but usually ending up with a cock in her mouth and in one other hole (pussy or ass) filled at the same time. She had a lot of energy and employed dirty talk in copious quantities; demanding they do things her way as the others stood around and waited for their turns. By the end of the scene, she had taste tested most of them (PTM, ATM), swallowed a great many loads, looked like a glazed donut, and found her pussy rubbed nearly raw. Her ass looked a bit worn too but as she put it, it was more resilient to such action, and therefore not as big a problem to handle. There were many bits that seemed over the top this time, like her using Arnold's foot to masturbate with in her pussy, or the double cock in the mouth routine she favored, but it was clear that she had a different dynamic going then Naomi; one that served her well by comparison (though tastes will vary as to which was better). Yikes!

Bonus Scene One: Assault That Ass 8: Naomi, the bubble butt gal on the front DVD cover and latest hotty in the porn world to embrace anal sex, was up last to satisfy the masses in a scene with Michael Stefano. The tease footage here was top flight all the way as she wiggled her butt in slow motion and played with herself in a black fishnet get up before walking over to the couch to start sucking off Michael's shaft. He was as infatuated with her bubble butt as the rest of the world, proving her performance in John Leslie's Naomi: There's Only One was no fluke (she was the focal point of the entire movie there). In any case, Michael gave her some oral and she wiggled her butt on his face before he started hitting her pussy and ass with his moderately sized penis. Unlike some of the others, she was not experienced in anal and even her vaginal wasn't as active as I like but she proved to have a lot of potential that fans will want to see completely exploited before she leaves the industry. I know that at least some of you will appreciate that she wasn't as experienced as the others, giving her a freshness missing in too many performers. The scene ended with the facial as expected and while her act needs a lot more work to reach the levels of the rest of the cast, her look alone was worth several replays.

Bonus Scene Two: Cunt Gushers: Naomi, a gal with a bubble butt that I found especially appealing at the 2006 AEE show, was up next in a scene where she wore a pink PVC outfit and white fishnet stockings. She looked like the type of gal that could get a lot of press if given a break too so it was little wonder that Manuel Ferrara kept her for himself. He could barely keep the camera focused as he initially interviewed her and I admit that her personality won me over during the show for a sense of playfulness (even on the last day when everyone else was tired). The majority of the scene was the couple screwing vaginally although he stroked her off to a squirting orgasm and there was some taste testing going on too. Otherwise, there wasn't a lengthy blowjob or filler material as some gonzo directors feel compelled to offer and her sexual skill went largely untested. I hope to see more of her in the future even if this wasn't her best work but it was a decent scene nonetheless. It also ended with a swallow and had some decent replay value.

Bonus Scene Three: Overflowing Assholes 2: Naomi, the physically gifted gal from the front DVD cover, was up next as she crawled up the stairs in her black thong and matching black mesh bra. I've been a big fan of hers since meeting her earlier this year and the sheer volume of work she has done since then is amazing though I can honestly state that the quality of her work varies more than a little. Still, the tease of her wiggling her ass and getting a spanking on her fleshy backside was enough to make it work as John Strong and Tony T. partnered up with her. Tony was too talkative but he did screw her ass early and hard as John worked her mouth. The men swapped positions a few times with Naomi getting more active as she warmed up a little bit. Her ability to anally grind on a cock was a sweet sight to behold but she wasn't as aggressively working the cock as I've seen her do in some of her other scenes of late. Still, she taste tested them a lot and otherwise offered herself up as they sought to pop their nuts in her ass, marking the scene as truthful in advertising. I did notice that at the end of the scene, she shat out precious little semen compared to some of the others in the movie, though she sucked the little troopers down handily as if enjoying the taste.

Bonus Scene Four: Assault That Ass 9: "For most of you, the 24 minute long bonus scene between the lovely Sasha Grey and mean old Jake Malone, will be the best extra. Jake is definitely an acquired taste and those who've watched many of his scenes will know how he tries to emulate Max Hardcore in some ways (while not going quite so far, his routine seems an act to me, used to differentiate his work from the numerous competitors in gonzo). Such was the case here and if you want to see Sasha pushed to her limits, this will serve you well as one of the roughest oral-only scenes I recall ever seeing her in, taking place largely in the restroom of the Red Light District headquarters."

Bonus Scene Five: Smoking Hot: Sasha Grey, looking enticing in her pink slutware outfit that covered about half of her ass, was up next in a scene with studly Russian John Strong after teasing the camera in slow motion. He throatfucked her before tapping her pussy on the couch, spending precious little time before moving on to her asshole. She gave up a lot of dirty talk as she yelled and masturbated, the vocals coming across as hollow but pleasing in the sense that she was always wanting more from him. She was not at her most active a cock rider here but I will tell you that she seemed in control of her sexuality and not a waif pushed around as some would claim. She swallowed the resulting load and it served as a nice compliment to the main gang bang (at this writing, I think she has under three dozen scenes released on DVD) so the total of four scenes with her comprise a large portion of her work; certainly among the strongest of her scenes for extreme gonzo companies.

Bonus Scene Six: Sex Slaves 2: Sasha Grey, all dressed up in black fetish apparel including a buckled corset and fishnet stockings, was up last on the second disc as she worked with creepy old Jake Malone, the scene's director. Her arm length purple gloves were interesting but her dubbed commentary about wanting to be treated like shit by someone that would abuse her will likely get any of you misogynists off all by itself. The tease was in slow motion and done outside, with her warming up on a black dildo before blowing Jake on the marble looking porch. They went inside for him to abuse further, with toys, spit, and talk in an effort to push her already extreme limits all the more. He pounded her mouth, pussy, and ass in numerous ways before she swallowed his load, ending the scene with a lot of weird energy.

Summary: Gang Bang 5 by director John Strong for release by Red Light District was one of the best spotlights either gal has had at this point in their relatively short careers. I wasn't sure what to rate the DVD set since I wanted more unique footage (the bonus scenes were well done but how much can you elevate the score of a release based on older material that consumers likely already have or have seen?) but you can adjust my rating of Recommended accordingly. Naomi and her wonderfully perfect pucker were complimented nicely by Sasha's youthful brilliance, giving fans of hardcore, circus act sex a lot to enjoy. Each were truly sexual Olympians worthy of a raised eyebrow or two so check out Gang Bang 5 if this all sounds good to you.
