Extra's: The extras this time included a 15:33 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Juan and D-Snoop, a pop shot recap, a photogallery, and some covers for other titles on the other side of the DVD cover. The BTS was actually pretty interesting if you're a fan of the ladies like but be forewarned that it was largely comprised of material taken during their photoshoots for the movie (not the deleted sex footage or in depth interviews). Still, it was the only extra adding value to me so while your mileage may vary, it won't vary that much.
Audio/Video Quality: Round Butt Sluts 4 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Juan Cuba for Platinum X Pictures. I'm familiar with his work at Platinum X Pictures as a behind the scenes guy and his skills as a full fledged director at various companies has been getting pretty good, even if the rough edges are slow to disappear. The lighting was only average though and this led to some issues with grain, video noise, and shadows yet he did a reasonably good job overall in presenting a solid set of visuals. The composition of the shots seemed to enhance the look of most of the ladies, showing more improvement than any other aspect of his previous works. There were no compression artifacts so even the mastering of the DVD was handled well and some of you will appreciate the lack of the formerly displayed watermark of the company logo in the lower right hand corner of the screen during the show. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo was in English but the actual audio appeared to be shot in monaural with the processing added later on (in the mastering part of the process). The vocals were generally clear but lacked any separation or dynamic range so this is an area that Juan needs to work more on (just like most of his associates in the industry). The music starting each scene was really poor but that was probably the only real surprise for me in terms of negative technical matters, the rest being pretty decently handled.

Body of Review: Juan Cuba was a secondary player in porn for a long time but as so many of his colleagues left for greener pastures, he was given more of a chance to work for Platinum X Pictures as a director. Some of his first works were raw, unpolished, and lacking in technical areas yet showing a lot of potential worth checking out. As I looked in on his titles from time to time, it became evident that he was getting better with time, aging like a fine wine as a result of his work. His latest release is Round Butt Sluts 4; the sequel to Round Butt Sluts 3 and Round Butt Sluts 1. The emphasis was not on anal sex so much as a lot of tease using the ass as the focal point. Given the shapely derrieres of the female cast including Mikayla, Presley Maddox, Kelli Tyler, Rachel Starr, and cover gal Carmen Kinsley, the heat was almost ASSured and as long as you aren't in the market for anal, you will probably find this to be a very appealing title. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used in the five scenes:
Scene One: Mikayla, a brunette with long hair, large implants, and a finely tuned ass, was up first as she teased outside on a sunny day near the pool in her fishnet outfit leaving little to the imagination. The tease was too short but she ended up inside on the tiled floor masturbating with a dildo, giving over the top moaning before Juan apologized for interrupting her act. He coerced her into fingering her ass, massaging her ass cheeks, and otherwise getting warmed up before Mark Wood was called in to give professional assistance. As a trained professional, his help was required to truly put herself through the paces, the butt clapping getting his cock really hard so she rewarded him with a slow, sultry hummer while kneeling before him (even as Juan concentrated his camera work on her ass). She then bent over by the couch for him to pound vaginally, the standing position working for her curvy physique while her thigh high boots remained in place. While on top of him, she aggressively rode the cock but much of the time showed her in a subordinate position that didn't allow her as much room in that regard so she turned up the volume of her vocals (some dirty talk but mostly groaning) until he rubbed out a load of population pudding to her face to finish it up. She had one last request though; that he slap her ass some more and he complied nicely to give her several swats.
Scene Two: Presley Maddox, a leaner, all natural brunette with some junk in her trunk, was up next in a red bikini by the pool on the sunny day. The tease music was lame but it did not last long when she came inside to find scrawny James Deen pulling his pud to her gyrations. He started treating her roughly and she ended up at his knees sucking the diminutive male off; actively employing her mouth and hand to give him pleasure. He took her cookie in the hallway and in a chair that accentuated her figure, the guy still acting tough towards her as she took all he had with ease. He eventually got her to the nearby couch where he had her get on all fours doggy style, sucking her ass a bit before drilling her some more. The lighting was lacking (in great need of a C light) but he held her down as she begged for more, actively riding his cock with some intermittent PTM until he launched his wad at her face. She swallowed the light load down and smiled, laughing at how easy it was before she waved goodbye to the camera.
Scene Three: Kelli Tyler, a sexy little blonde wearing a stripper cowgirl outfit complete with straw hat, plaid bikini top, tight blue jean cutoff shorts, and knee high pink PVC boots, was up next by the pool. After the tease montage, she was smoking a cigarette on the steps of the hot tub. Juan molested her a little as she smiled; her appealing green eyes and fetching dental work adding to her appeal before she took on studly John Strong and Brian Surewood inside the house. The expansive couch was the place for the action and John loved her oral skills before showing her some of his own. Brian was then given the spotlight to work with her, his aggressive "dirty old man" aspect treated to some fun time before both men did her every which way but loose. She was an aggressive cock rider with both of them and John ended up busting two loads in the scene because of it. While she did not do anal or a DP, she was otherwise extremely skilled in the art of milking a nut, her ass coated with the last two loads as she wiggled about to display her handiwork.
Scene Four: Rachel Starr, a brunette with some major curves, showed she was not a tiny porn chick as she sat in the lap of John Strong by the pool in her sexy camisole and pink stockings. Juan crept up on them and started capturing the two as they played fully clothed, jets going by in the background. This time, there was no tease montage by the pool as with the other scenes but it was a nice attempt at diversity; her ass still getting plenty of screen time as she unzipped his pants and started blowing him with a savoring touch while watching the camera. They then went inside to see some tease as she shook her money maker to Juan's delight, landing on the bed where she sat on John's face to get some oral for her own pleasure. This resulted in a 69 position that both of them appreciated, the two engaging in vaginal sex as her puffy pussy took every stroke with a demand for more. She was not as active a rider as the other gals but she did blow him to completion and swallowed his load before some post coital sucking; finishing up with a display of flexibility as she proved her worthiness for the movie.
Scene Five: Carmen Kinsley, the thick gal displayed on the front cover, was up last as she teased inside wearing some black chaps and matching thong while bent over at the second story railing inside the house. The montage wasn't as fully developed this time but she had a lot to work with and it mesmerized Juan as she provided a good look at her assets. He felt her up too but not so much as ass worshiping Mark Wood took over from there. He started boning her pussy well before she blew him; the gal liking her tasty juices augmented with his cock from the looks of it. This led to more vaginal screwing and her ass getting fingered, her flesh rippling as she took his pounding well. In the end, she coaxed out a healthy load of semen from the guy; the wad hitting her ass cheeks that Juan prominently displayed some more before she sort of promised to do anal "next time".
Summary: Round Butt Sluts 4 by director Juan Cuba for Platinum X Pictures was not quite as heated as Round Butt Sluts 3 or Round Butt Sluts 1 (for reasons stated in the scene breakdowns) but it still warranted a rating of Recommended for the amount of stroke and replay value. The amount of fuck for the buck was such that the ladies were given enough room to showcase their looks and abilities yet the minor areas in need of polishing up held it back a bit too. Still, for all intents and purposes, Round Butt Sluts 4 showed Juan was still working on his craft and as devoted to ass worship as most of his peers; giving fans a lot of tease with the sex. It was a good stroke flick with a lot of cute moments in the BTS worth checking out so give it a look.
