Extras: The second disc had all the substantive extras, a series of nine trailers, a biography for the director, a cast list, a set of four Behind the Scenes features including Personal Time With Miss Texas (12:56), Welcome to the Toy Room (24:40), Wardrobe Malfunctions (17:21), and Porn Philosophy  (9:12), a popshot recap, some filmographies, and five photogalleries. I really, really liked the four features here, each espousing a different angle on how the director and cast approach their work, showing it is not all spontaneous, how the toys and wardrobe are selected, and how much fun they all have during these flicks.
Audio/Video Quality: Buttman's Stretch Class 4 was presented in the improved 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director John Stagliano for Evil Angel in the MPEG-2 codec using 480 resolution. As noted previously, John has never displayed the overwhelming desire to show crystal clear visuals, preferring to focus his efforts on the kind of raw energy so few of his peers are as capable of providing. The levels of grain, video noise, and even pattern effects were okay this time and the action lost nothing due to the flaws on the technical side (the movie was still hot but the bitrate typically hovered around the 4.6 Mbps even if it varied a lot) but the overly saturated colors really did not help the ladies look their best IMHO. The composition of the camera angles showed some care put into them, making the ladies virtually always look their best, and this is the strength of John's directorial ability more than anything else (as a producer, he also tends to make fine selections of cast). The large amounts of tease and clothing play along with female masturbation efforts enhanced this one significantly, the nastiest the action got with John involving his hands or some face smothering. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio track (in 192 Kbps) was as basic as gonzo porn came be, with limited talking going on outside of John's own directions in the background. The cast could be heard moaning & groaning but this was definitely a limited selection based on audio quality.

Body of Review: John Stagliano is the director best known as "Buttman", his wildly successful gonzo production company called Evil Angel. Over the years, his name has become associated with quality entertainment relating to tease, the gonzo shooting style, and a love of shapely female ass, many directors following in his footsteps building upon the basics that he established to the delight of fans all over the world. In recent months, he has faced federal charges for providing adult customers with adult entertainment made by consenting adults, the result of some overreaching task force that was summarily shot down by one of their own at the end of an expensive and wasteful trial the other day. As foolish as such prosecutions are, John fought rather than cop a plea like so many others have, helping to preserve our freedoms to watch such moves as Buttman's Stretch Class 4, the sequel to Buttman's Stretch Class 3 that I liked so much. The movie was a selection of five scenes dedicated to tease and anal play, the ladies given the freedom to enjoy themselves without male partners getting in the way. The amount of ass tease alone in the nearly five hour flick was more than you will see in probably a dozen gonzo titles with variations of the terms used for ass so if you are in the market for a movie showcasing hotties such as Alexis Texas, you are in luck.
The company website described the lengthy, double disc movie like this: "Buttman is obsessed with the elasticity, pliability and gravity of the most intimate parts of the female form. The subjects of his sexy science experiments must possess ample, jiggly asses, tweakable nipples, vacuum assholes, and a desire for insertion of all manner of toys in all orifices. Cover girl Alexis arrives for her session at Buttman's studio/laboratory with all the variables: her big ass, perfect tits, cute smile, sexual attitude and delectable everything. If Buttman could build the perfect woman, it would be Alexis Texas. Some of the camera angles look like they were shot from a roving vehicle traversing the underside of her ass-cheeks as if covered by the overhang of a soft fleshy carport. Shiny butt plugs look like surreal tractors burrowing into ass tunnels that spread just enough to accommodate whatever physically improbable stretch is required to make objects disappear into suctioning sphincters. Buttman applies clothespins to pussy lips, ties up Anita Blue's pendulous breasts, hangs weighted clamps from her labia... always approaching each new act with a childlike fascination while asking: "what if..." or "I wonder what would happen...". He relaxes and enlists the lovelies as eager assistants having out-of-body experiences while probing their inner-bodies' depths like pioneers discovering terra nova. Raven haired beauty Bella Dellamorte adds an element of danger... full body tattoos, fishnets, multiple clit piercings and a tough look contrasted by her soft moans of ecstasy, the result of a self inflicted triple-penetration. Watching Bella with a jeweled butt plug planted deep in her ass, her pelvic thrusts in sync with her arms simultaneously yanking a purple dong into her pussy and canvassing her clit with a little bullet vibrator, is like seeing poetry in motion. Blonde cutie Katie Summers and gorgeous Allie Haze (in ass-hugging white, stretchy leotards), are the out-of-control group on Disc 2. Allie's pussy friction with a huge "magic wand" plug-in vibrator, a wild untamed thing gazing close-up into the camera while choking herself and uttering phrases like "pervertedly beautiful" remind us that Buttman is a master of both psyche and physique. Her self-induced gag on a huge dildo illustrates that every part of a woman's body has stretch potential, every orifice available for lubrication and insertion. The lustful lesson learned by the students, subjects and observers of Professor Buttman's Stretch Class experiment is that this fascinating, erotically charged two-disc set can make four-plus hours seem like mere minutes... it's the century-old theory of relativity." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Alexis Texas, the ever-popular blond babe featured on the front cover, was up first as she walked into the room wearing jeans so tight that they looked painted on. She berated John for his long running promises to shoot her in scenes and he apologized profusely while mentioning some of the other directors in the company distribution network that have successfully shot her. This led to him stuffing his face between her clothed ass cheeks, the tease moving forth to showcase her tiny red thong, some nipple clamps, and the gal masturbating with a series of toys including a black gnome; her pussy and ass violated quite deeply. It was a fun showing and her wonderful ass was spread in all sorts of positions, the scene lasting over an hour.
Scene Two: Anita Blue, another blond with an ample sample of a derriere, was up next in the small room with John as she discussed toys with him, some of them larger than one might suspect were suited for anal insertion. Her flowing white outfit covered a skimpy little pink thong, the gal loosing the robe to show a red PVC corset before long. As more of an extreme queen than Alexis, Anita showed her love of BDSM with her tits tied up (turning purple as a result), some nipple clamps and clothespins applied to her tits and twat before she anally masturbated with a variety of toys including a blue one I reviewed from Evolved Novelties (a blue colored version of the Waterproof Diamante: Citron or something extremely close to it). Then came a series of glass toys and a large red anal plug, the woman enjoying showing off her love of ass play more than a little throughout the scene.
Scene Three: Bella Dellamorte, a heavily tattooed brunette with killer curves and a white mesh body outfit, was up next in her first scene, John's admiration for her large booty unmistakably pure. Sporting an exotic look, she confronted a shelf of all sorts of toys to play with, taking her sweet time to get to them since the director wanted tons of tease focusing on her ass in numerous bent over positions. She penetrated herself with a number of them, including the gnome, her unpolished manner adding some raw energy over the scenes that were apparently more staged.
Scene Four: Katie Summers, a frisky blond with pretty eyes and a shapely ass, was up next in "rainy Florida" wearing a pink shirt and normal white shorts. She wore some pink panties with the "Hustler" logo on them and John laughed it off (though I thought it was in bad taste considering who was paying the bills), her all natural body still growing at 20 years old. Under her panties was an even skimpier thong, some play using it leading to more designer clothespins applied to her ass, labia, and tits until it was time to masturbate with some of the various vibrators. While clearly no anal virgin, she did seem to get off with a small green dildo (it even matched her fingernails), her relative newness also adding some pleasure as she playfully followed John's directions.
Scene Five: Allie Haze, a cute gal with a "little-big butt", was up next wearing some white wedgie pants and loose fitting top as she discussed matters with John in a quiet room. She kept her clothing on for awhile but she still exuded a level of sexuality that was appealing, her red thong helping separate her ass crack as she walked around the room and posed for the director. Most of the initial toy play took place on the bed, the clothespins and anal plug readying her for the larger purple toys even if it seemed like she enjoyed the wand much more. She did her own choking and slapping, provided more taste testing than most of her peers, and even showed how to give a very messy hummer with her saliva running all down her face. The penetrative sex finished up with the black gnome, some clamps/clothespins pinching her lovely ass cheeks to close things out.
Summary: Buttman's Stretch Class 4 by director John Stagliano for Evil Angel was a double disc extravaganza full of tons of tease, lots of toy use, and the kind of freedom from the usual porn formulas that worked for me in terms of replay value and strokability. While not the kind of show I'm usually into, there was a lot of freshness as expected from the director and his cast that might have lacked genetic juice but were surely made up for it in numerous ways, the extras a whole lot of fun too so I rated this as Highly Recommended for fans of the genre as well as those that adore shapely ladies genetically gifted with large asses. In short, Buttman's Stretch Class 4, like Buttman's Stretch Class 3 before it, employed a lot of what I call "fun factor" for ass lovers to appreciate, the lengthy scene by Alexis Texas alone worth the price of admission.
