Raw 5: Special Set

Evil Angel/Manuel Ferrara Productions

Genre: Gonzo

 

Director: Manuel Ferrara

Cast: London Keyes, Manuel Ferrara, Zoe Voss, Ava Adams, Charley Chase

Length: 248:27 minutes (143:43 minutes & 104:44 minutes)

London Keyes

Date of Production: 2010

Extras: The extras were fair and mostly limited to the second disc of the set, amounting to four photogalleries, six trailers, a helpful cast list (on each disc), some filmographies, and a popshot recap on the two discs. The best extra though, was the 21:48 minutes of bonus or “lost” footage of Zoe Voss, even if it wasn’t explicit sex, it was still interesting to check out.

Condoms: None

Zoe Voss with Manuel Ferrara

Audio/Video Quality: Raw 5: Special Set was presented in a nice 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel using the MPEG-2 codec for the standard definition release with 480p resolution. The colors were accurate in most cases but the footage was shot by Manuel himself (sometimes in POV while other times by setting the camera on a table), giving it a home movie look at times but serving to elevate the chemistry between the couples on display, no one else getting in the way to weaken the bonds. So while there was grain, weird camera work and angles at times, and perhaps lots of opportunities to polish up the raw footage, the title speaks volumes as to what was supposed to happen here and I have to respect the dynamic as advertised. The video bitrate was higher than usual, often in the 7.1 Mbps area or so, helping the show look pretty solid. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the 192 Kbps and 48 kHz sampling rate; sounding average at best compared to the video as all the gals could be heard (though the lack of separation and limited dynamic range could also be worked on) but it certainly could have been louder.

Ava Adams

Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara has long been one of the most popular performers with the ladies on both sides of the camera, his work at Evil Angel showcasing how he adores them better than anywhere else. Say what you will about lack of quality extras or technical values, the man delivers in spades the kind of heated fuck flick most of his peers can only dream about offering, the sheer quantity of his works also helping to push them over the proverbial edge. With that, I approached reviewing Raw 5: Special Set with the concern that it couldn’t possibly be as good as some of his previous titles, Manuel opening up his private vaults to showcase some of his most precious memories with attractive ladies of all sorts, ladies that were dripping wet to hook up with the guy. With major players such as beautiful London Keyes, sweet Zoe Voss, voluptuous Charley Chase, and sultry Ava Adams, I knew this would be a winner too.

Charley Chase

The company website described the flick like this: “For fans who prefer genuine sexual passion to formulaic, paint-by-numbers porn or circus stunts staged for a camera, director/stud Manuel Ferrara offers Raw 5. The series is special because its long, mostly unedited "scenes" - they're really more like informal home videos - show how real people look getting it on for their own pleasure. And what a pleasure Raw 5 is as Manuel and four sexy girls spend quality, truly intimate time turning each other on and getting each other off. Manuel picks up tasty Asian American London Keyes to celebrate her birthday, and as they play miniature golf, air hockey and arcade games, her revealing yellow sundress can't contain the fun loving cutie's voluptuous curves. They get a hotel room for the real birthday bashing, and swinging London turns out to be a screamer! She gleefully envelops his big cock in her mouth, two fists and between her seemingly too-big-to-be-Asian natural knockers. He drills her into the sheets, and her hair is a mess by the time she's ready for his load. She makes intense eye contact with the camera as she blows his pussy juice-coated penis, then plays with the semen he launches into her mouth and onto her face. She licks clean his cock, and this cum-thirsty girl even slurps the dregs from the sheets!

Zoe Voss is a slim, trim redhead with a pretty face, blue eyes and tiny, natural tits. From her own camera in her own apartment, we get an intimate view of how she prepares for a date with Manuel ... she showers, and seeing herself in the mirror declares, "I'd do me." When he calls to say he's on his way, the excited girl admits she's "dancing inside," then texts her girlfriends to make them jealous. He arrives and appreciates her just-out-of-the-shower look. As they kiss on her bed Manuel rolls over onto Zoe's curious kitten, who scrams, leaving him with the pussy. Zoe stretches and moans as she's eaten, and after a twat-flavored mouth kiss he mounts her. Their fuck is marked by sensual choking, cunt-to-mouth cock worship (with intense eye-camera contact) and Zoe's orgasmic squeals. He fingers her butthole as she grinds on his meat and uses both hands to conjure his load, which the spent girl languidly laps. On a vacation with Manuel, big-assed, naturally mega-buxom Ava Addams finds him sleeping in their hotel room. The young MILF (she looks maybe 30), a brown-eyed brunette, wants to go to the beach, but the only way to roust the hung-over Manuel is by seduction. So she unleashes her monster mams and arouses his cock in her mouth and cleavage. Soon she's more concerned with sex than sand, so they share a 69. Whether she's getting pounded on her back, on her side or with her legs cranked up behind her head, the camera quietly captures their intimacy. Her boobs bounce and flap as she fucks; she sucks cock pulled fresh from her gash. A POV-style shot taken by Manuel as he plows her doggie-style shows the impressive ratio of her small waist and broad butt. Finally a titty-fuck makes him blast, but the camera sees her showering and toweling off, now really ready for the beach.

Manuel's scene with Charley Chase shows their obvious personal connection. The lush-bodied Latina sports impressive natural jugs and a red-hot ass decorated with a spicy chile tattoo. Manuel arrives at breakfast time and samples her fresh-baked muffins, but his camera seems more interested in her cleavage. He teases her about the bong he finds in her apartment, and she tells stories of answering her door naked for delivery guys and religious proselytizers. In her new bed she gets seriously into giving him a slurpy, sloppy blow job. When they fuck, it's real, desperate sex with expressive faces, gasping, delirious sex talk and palpable excitement. She sucks his toes and when blowing his cock, she relishes the flavor of her pussy cream. Uninhibited Charley buries her head up his ass for a rim job. After more pussy - and titty-fucking, an extensive suck-off leaves her with jism to slurp.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: London Keyes, a major hotty wearing a small yellow sun dress on her birthday, decided to celebrate with studly Manuel Ferrara at a miniature golf course and arcade. She was falling out of her dress as she shot basketball, played air hockey, and tried some dancing on the DDR machine (her nipples clearly visible in public), the place empty but for them. They were 30 minutes into the movie when they arrived at the hotel room for her to undress and start power sucking his cock, her aggressive hummer a delight to watch and enjoy. He ate her out and both of them gave some fine head, the camera left on the dresser at times to accommodate his oral skills. This led to some active vaginal screwing, London shaking her ass as he boned her, some light choking and intermittent oral enhancing the final outcome. The scene ended when she blew him to completion, his load of genetic juice licked up and played with by the beauty at nearly the hour mark of the show. The company website aptly described the scene like this: “Manuel picks up tasty Asian American London Keyes to celebrate her birthday, and as they play miniature golf, air hockey and arcade games, her revealing yellow sundress can't contain the fun loving cutie's voluptuous curves. They get a hotel room for the real birthday bashing, and swinging London turns out to be a screamer! She gleefully envelops his big cock in her mouth, two fists and between her seemingly too-big-to-be-Asian natural knockers. He drills her into the sheets, and her hair is a mess by the time she's ready for his load. She makes intense eye contact with the camera as she blows his pussy juice-coated penis, then plays with the semen he launches into her mouth and onto her face. She licks clean his cock, and this cum-thirsty girl even slurps the dregs from the sheets!”

Scene Two: Zoe Voss, a lean gal with an all natural body, was the next up as the last scene of the first disc, the cutie slowly waking up and getting ready for the day in an admittedly grainy set of shots for Manuel Ferrara. Once the curtains were opened to allow more lighting, it looked better as Zoe recorded her preparations and called him up. The couple hooked up and he came over to play with her kittens, doing an even better job on her pussy once things got underway. They kissed, caressed, and he set the camera down to eat her out and drill her snatch, Zoe giving him some decent head before they screwed like horny teenagers on prom night. Zoe was very vocal too, perhaps too vocal for my tastes, but she rode him like wildfire with her ass cheeks shaking up a storm. This continued with additional oral until she squeezed out a wad of semen all over her mouth, swallowing the remains on the bed. The company website suggested this of the scene: “Zoe Voss is a slim, trim redhead with a pretty face, blue eyes and tiny, natural tits. From her own camera in her own apartment, we get an intimate view of how she prepares for a date with Manuel ... she showers, and seeing herself in the mirror declares, "I'd do me." When he calls to say he's on his way, the excited girl admits she's "dancing inside," then texts her girlfriends to make them jealous. He arrives and appreciates her just-out-of-the-shower look.

Their fuck is marked by sensual choking, cunt-to-mouth cock worship (with intense eye-camera contact) and Zoe's orgasmic squeals. He fingers her butthole as she grinds on his meat and uses both hands to conjure his load, which the spent girl languidly laps.”

Scene Three: Ava Adams, a curvy brunette with a pretty face, was up next as the first scene on the second disc, the gal trying to wake up a sleeping Manuel Ferrara. Amazingly, he sent her away so she set up the camera in the hotel bathroom to provide some tease, putting on her bikini before going back to wake him up with some head. Her hand assisted hummer was sweet and she managed to use her big tits to make it even better, the couple going at one another orally and vaginally in a most active manner. Setting the camera down for some of the footage, Manuel provided some great long shots of them boning, his POV material also wonderfully intense. Ava is a natural when it comes to solid performances and this scene showed her affinity for Manuel as her top partner, the gal titty fucking him to completion with his spew landing all over his own torso before they showered. The company website put it this way: “On a vacation with Manuel, big-assed, naturally mega-buxom Ava Addams finds him sleeping in their hotel room. The young MILF (she looks maybe 30), a brown-eyed brunette, wants to go to the beach, but the only way to roust the hung-over Manuel is by seduction. So she unleashes her monster mams and arouses his cock in her mouth and cleavage. Soon she's more concerned with sex than sand, so they share a 69. Whether she's getting pounded on her back, on her side or with her legs cranked up behind her head, the camera quietly captures their intimacy. Her boobs bounce and flap as she fucks; she sucks cock pulled fresh from her gash. A POV-style shot taken by Manuel as he plows her doggie-style shows the impressive ratio of her small waist and broad butt. Finally a titty-fuck makes him blast, but the camera sees her showering and toweling off, now really ready for the beach.”

Scene Four: Charley Chase, another busty brunette I’ve grown quite fond of in recent times, was up last as she met Manuel Ferrara outside of an apartment complex on a sunny day. She invited him in on the Tuesday morning so he could enjoy some muffins she made, her pink shirt and black shorts hugging her frame closely. She had a decent place and her cats didn’t want to leave them, Manuel getting a tour after she poured him some orange juice and fed him some fresh muffins. He kept zooming in on her tits so she flashed him, the two moving to the bedroom where she undressed and blew him aggressively. Her orals skills were great and she savored the experience, tossing his salad unexpectedly as though she enjoyed his manly taste. This led to various forms of vaginal penetration, some foot fetish action included almost as an afterthought. Charley was into him completely and he was driven to pound her pussy silly, making her orgasm at least once or twice, her hairy snatch looking inviting. It ended when she slobbed his knob to milk his balls dry orally, swallowing his seed easily without the usual wasteful semen play, then Charley showering off. The website put it this way: “Manuel's scene with Charley Chase shows their obvious personal connection. The lush-bodied Latina sports impressive natural jugs and a red-hot ass decorated with a spicy chile tattoo. Manuel arrives at breakfast time and samples her fresh-baked muffins, but his camera seems more interested in her cleavage. He teases her about the bong he finds in her apartment, and she tells stories of answering her door naked for delivery guys and religious proselytizers. In her new bed she gets seriously into giving him a slurpy, sloppy blow job. When they fuck, it's real, desperate sex with expressive faces, gasping, delirious sex talk and palpable excitement. She sucks his toes and when blowing his cock, she relishes the flavor of her pussy cream. Uninhibited Charley buries her head up his ass for a rim job. After more pussy - and titty-fucking, an extensive suck-off leaves her with jism to slurp.”

Summary: Raw 5: Special Set by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel might not have been quite as solid as the last volume in the series but I had no doubt that people sick & tired of formulaic porn would appreciate this for the quality and quantity all the same. Further, the raw energy and passion exhibited by all the players here (none were on auto pilot) gave it great replay value and strokability, the fun factor high enough to earn a rating of Highly Recommended. In short then, Raw 5: Special Set, like all the volumes in the series before it, was a tribute to just how well some ladies respond to the strongest current male performer in the porn industry, the ladies singing his praises as they earned accolades themselves. My personal favorites were London Keyes and Charley Chase but all four ladies did a great job, the spontaneity and raw passion always preferred over the usual staged gonzo I see so much of. Good work!
