Extra's: The best extra on a porno is always extra sex so the inclusion of two full scenes, lengthy and all new scenes at that, should surely be on the top of your list of solid extras. The first was a bonus scene lasting over 30.5 minutes starring Jasmine Byrne (soon to be called J-Ho) taking on some guys. The second was an even longer 33 minute long scene with Victoria Sweet and the crew. I detailed both below for your reading benefit and most fans will like them a lot. There was also a Behind the Scenes feature lasting about 25 minutes, apparently shot by Jake Malone in part, that had interviews, some photoshoot material, and more sex. If you're a fan of the cast, you'll like the feature a lot for what it had to offer. There was a related 23 minute photoshoot as well, allowing the ladies to pose for the stills that were captured on the cover and in the photogallery. There was also a pop shot recap compilation, some limited filmographies, and trailers to Evilution 1, New Whores on the Block 1, Slutty and Sluttier, and Evil Angel.
Audio/Video Quality: New Whores on the Block 2: Special Edition was presented in 1.85:1 ratio letterboxed color as shot by director Manuel Ferrara for distribution by Evil Angel on his company label. I would've greatly preferred the movie to be in anamorphic widescreen (the process adds a lot of detail to the picture on widescreen televisions) but that trend hasn't hit Evil Angel yet so I'll just have to wait. This being his fourth or fifth release for the company, I figured it would look similar to the last one though in coming months I'm led to believe that there will be some improvements made too. The colors were fairly solid, the fleshtones accurate, but the lighting was not the best this time; making the picture look decent but not as good as some of his older work. Lighting varied by the scenes and was spottier than previous efforts but still seemed to convey the sense of raw energy fairly well. The amount of grain and video noise were low to moderate as a result so while it wasn't the best I've seen from Manuel, it was better than some gonzo productions. Jake Malone, Juan Cuba, and Manuel himself worked the cameras but these scenes were not really up to par compared to some of the trio's other works of late. There were no compression artifacts noticed during the scenes but the strength of the visuals was how the composition of the shots almost always enhanced the looks or perceived passion of the scenes. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital 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: Manuel Ferrara has been one of the most surprising newcomer directors in gonzo over the last year thanks to his ability to translate his sexual charisma onto the small screen with numerous women in his productions. Now that he's in the big leagues with a distribution deal at Evil Angel, the length of his movies has increased substantially and the extras have been ramped up considerably as well, with New Whores on the Block 2: Special Edition being his latest release to make it my way. The title would make one think the ladies in the cast were all new to porn but that was simply not the case, each seeming to have plenty of experience with a cock, but the scenarios were often funny and the heated performances better than average so I thought most of you who have enjoyed Manuel's previous efforts would like this one too. If you're still interested, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Ashley Jensen, the blonde wearing glasses on the upper left hand corner of the cover, was up first as she teased the camera and threw a hissy fit when called a "little girl" by Manuel Ferrara. She stormed upstairs (with the camera catching her panties bunched up and riding between her cheeks) and changed into some slutware that enhanced her look before coming back. While I knew it was all make believe, it was a lot of fun nonetheless and as she put on a show to prove she wasn't a little girl, it really turned on Manuel as she dominated him; even sitting on his face as Juan Cuba manned his camera. They did some heated oral on each other and this served to really get them into one another during the vaginal screwing that took place afterwards. The chemistry and passion was palatable with her actively riding his cock before the ending facial. In all then, it was a solid way to open the show with the game room fuck most of us would have loved to enjoy.
Scene Two: Odessa and Tiffany Price, were up next in a bordello scenario that began with some eye catching tease by Odessa in an orange tube top and tiny black shorts outside. Manuel was getting heated up when Tiffany called her away, saying the gal had to make money, more money then he could pay. This led Ian Scott to sampling her wares inside the luxurious house, orally warming her up on the couch as she kicked back and Tiffany left them to masturbate on the opposing couch in her bikini. The blowjob didn't last long before Odessa was getting Ian's hard cock stuffed inside of her pussy, Odessa riding him pretty hard once warmed up properly. At this point, Manuel Ferrara came in to find Tiffany a bit more ready to bargain, with the gal climbing all over his lap as he spanked her and sucked her titties. They moved to another room and started pawing each other. The lapdance she provided led him to going down on her as the other couple screwed; the rough sex dynamic increasing in his portion of the scene as she went to blow him. Her need for a healthy dose of population pudding aside, Manuel started screwing her pussy as he enjoyed her tight pussy a lot. She in turn seemed to appreciate all he had to offer, with the grudgefuck between them heating up over time. Odessa finished off Ian and joined in with Tiffany to close out Manuel's bit, Tiffany swallowing all he had to offer her.
Scene Three: Ricki White, the brunette featured on the lower right hand corner of the front cover in black chaps, was up next as she teased the camera on the stairs of the big house. The booty shots alone were super hot but the sense of showcasing herself in a heated manner is something learned over time and she had that something special to drive up the energy levels a lot. The look of the picture was slightly off (as in many of his works) but it could not detract from the raw energy provided as she walked into the living room to find a naked Michael Stefano, to jerk off. Her mouth replaced her hand and then he took over to dominate her, spreading her ass cheeks aside to finger her ass as she approved. He went straight to anal and drilled her hard, spanking her and letting her do ATM before round two. Several positions later, he pulled out and jerked off with her feet, then rubbing out a load to her face before she sought out more semen from Jason Sinclair, Lee Bang, D. Snoop, Joe Rock, Ian Scott, and Manuel Ferrara upstairs. Only Manuel got to fuck her out of the secondary pack, dropping his load quickly for the heated scene to close out.
Scene Four: Lindsay Meadows, looking a bit like the gal on the lower left hand corner of the front cover from the following scene, was up next as the birthday present of geek Ian Scott (who was into "mathematics, dungeons & dragons" per Manuel who had hooked him up). She was into the virgin aspect and even though the scenario was relatively unbelievable given his extensive history in porn, it was fun and he acted the part pretty well. She slowly worked her way into his pants by giving him a lapdance and teasing him slowly; allowing the heat of the moment to sweep him away. When she saw the size of his rod, she walked away, telling Manuel it was too large for her but he convinced her to go back and service him properly for a bonus. She slobbed his knob nicely, eventually giving him a taste of her quim, before riding him pretty heatedly. The various positions worked well and I thought she did a fine job of conveying the situation while he hammered into her pussy. She bounced back on his cock and the scene ended as expected with her taking his small load onto her tongue. Whew!
Scene Five: Alexis Love, Taylor Ash, and Sarah Sun, were up last with Steve Holmes, Ian Scott, and Manuel Ferrara as the two light haired ladies sought to teach their younger brunette friend how to be a slut. There was some solo action and lesbian licking but it was when the guys came in to show how the ladies worked with cock that really turned up the heat. The experienced women sucked away with abandon and showed their nasty side before they started getting drilled hard in the vaginal sex. This was followed by anal and while the sex never devolved into circus act silliness (no DP's, air tight, or other antics of that nature), the all around boning served to show a good basic scene that lasted long enough to cover all the basics in great detail, with each gal having her limits tested more than a little in the process. Facials punctuated the scenes and while I would have liked some dirty talk to enhance the action, it was a well rounded scene in most other ways.
Bonus Scene One: Jasmine Byrne, looking awesome in her pink bikini as she bent over the chair, showed some great moves as she teased the camera. The lighting was severely off and the colors saturated but I doubt most people will care about that since she was incredibly sexy here (as always). Her partners for the scene were Mr. Pete, Erik Everhard, Juan Cuba, Bobbie James, Brandon Iron, Seth Dickens, Johnny Fender, and Steve Holmes; starting off with Pete eating her sweet ass. In terms of action, she did it all with a lot of DP and anal sex punctuated by great blowjobs and ending with her completely coated on her face with the male semen. I'd go into deeper detail but suffice it to say that she gave a wonderfully heated performance with tremendous energy and passion. Whew!
Scene Seven: Victoria Sweet, a cute 19 year old redhead, was up in a similar scene to the last bonus, with the lighting, color balance, and other technical matters handled somewhat better. The majority of the scene took place with Manuel Ferrara giving her his special brand of loving; never straying into anal but pounding her pussy until it was raw and red. The scene eventually ended with him coating her face, along with Juan Cuba, Bobbie James, Brandon Iron, Seth Dickens, and Johnny Fender being credited as the unseen mope squad members dropping loads to finish her off.
Summary: New Whores on the Block 2: Special Edition by director Manuel Ferrara for distribution by Evil Angel sure offered up a lot of fuck for the buck, even if the technical values were not up to par with what I've come to expect from the director and his distributor. The double disc set provided ample space to leave the scenes less compressed but the simple fact is that the lighting and work on the front end probably couldn't be fixed in post production. Still, the raw energy from the scenes and splendid performances made up most of the lost ground so I rated it as a high end Recommended, even if I wondered what happened to the picture more than a few times. In short, New Whores on the Block 2: Special Edition showed that these whores might have been established professionals but their ride on Manuel's block was well worth the trip.
