Extras: I was disappointed this time compared to previous releases in the series since the now single disc release only had some trailers, a cast list, photogalleries, and filmographies. Still, given the length of the movie itself, there was enough strokable spank bank material to last a good, long time.
Audio/Video Quality: Buttman’s Stretch Class 5 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 4.1 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. His latest title making it my way this week was Buttman’s Stretch Class 5, the latest in a series that I like so much. The movie was a selection of three lengthy 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 three and a half 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 Jynx Maze, you are in luck.
The company website described the lengthy, single disc movie like this: “In Buttman's Stretch Class 5, John Stagliano gives us the trademark intimacy of latter-day Buttman. The original ass-obsessed director enjoys unhurried, one-on-one sessions of intense butt tease, stretching toys, creative ass play and revealing solo masturbation with three gorgeous women. Friendly brunette Latina Jynx Maze shows off a tight, round bubble butt packed into white stretch hose. Jynx has a great smile and a perfect, perky set of small, all-natural boobies. She gets her tits wrung in Buttman's hand-cranked nipple stretcher and endures an array of clothespins pinching her labia, breasts - even the rim of her sphincter! She flexes a couple of anal invaders in and out using her powerful rectal muscles. John sucks on Jynx' pretty, pedicured toes and pushes his face into her panty-clad ass cleft. Jynx attempts to fit his black rubber garden gnome inside her snug ass chute, and uses a vibrating wand to make herself cum. Dark-haired, exotically tattooed alt-girl Tori Lux appears, a chain wedged in the crotch of her sheer, white pantyhose. Buttman follows her fine, round ass as she teases and spreads her soft cheeks for the camera. She uses a clear butt plug and an expanding toy to gape her anus. After reaming her anus with a big glass dildo, Tori vibrates her pussy to climax. Bodacious blonde Krissy Lynn visits John, her huge ass straining the fabric of her white, skin-tight stretch jeans. Krissy does some bend-over posing, and Buttman sticks his face in the deep crack of her wedgie. She pulls up her T-shirt to shake her enormous, gravity-defying rack and suck on her own nipples. Krissy runs through enticing poses wearing only a thin red thong and the clamps applied to her tits. She even gives a sexy faux-foot job to a large, blue rubber cock. John uses ever-larger clear toys on Krissy's asshole 'til it's nice and relaxed. She shows him her deep throat skills on the dildo. Finally, Krissy uses three vibrating gizmos to bring herself off, then gapes goodbye to the camera. Join the father of gonzo video in a celebration of decadent female sexuality!” Here’s a very brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jynx Maze, the fetching Latina beauty featured on the front cover, was up first as she teased in various outfits, using her perfect all natural body to full effect as John recorded what transpired. She began with a bright blue top, sheer white stretch pants, and a neon green thong you could see underneath it all. She stretched, walked around, and used a variety of toys (including nipple clamp stretchers, dildos, and vibrators) while carrying on a conversation with John. There was then a pink mesh dress that could be seen through, clothespins, anal plugs, and foot fetish action (John stuffing his face between her panty-clad ass cheeks routinely). In all, it was a great way to showcase Jynx for over an hour, the other scenes following suit.
Scene Two: Tori Lux, a curvy brunette with ample tattoos and an all natural body, was up next as she walked into the studio wearing a black biker jacket, white bikini top, and sheer white stretch pants, her thong showing through underneath. She engaged John verbally as she slowly showed off her moves (and body), a lot of additional foot fetish material included before the toys started plunging deep inside her ass. She was playful and perky here, perhaps not as much as Jynx but still in an appealing manner; the gal more prone to displaying her natural anal gape before she used a wand vibrator to get off with.
Scene Three: Krissy Lynn, a blond with a sweet smile and sweeter ass, was up last as she entered the studio wearing a tank top and white stretch pants, just a hint of her assets on display as they discussed his legal battle earlier in the year. She changed clothing a bit and did as he asked, her large breasts enticing John to ask her to shake them a lot more than the others had done. She did provide some foot fetish material here and there was the traditional anal play you would expect of the show, some unusual toys deployed this time to anally pleasure the cute blond. As is the norm for the series, she masturbated before things were over, the waves of pleasure encompassing her enough to cap the scene in a heated manner.
Summary: Buttman’s Stretch Class 5 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. For fans of Jynx, Tori, and Krissy this should be considered a true “must have” production given how much footage each was allowed without the usual mopes ruining things (so there was no genetic juice or population pudding included), John’s devotion to ass shining through the entire time. In short, Buttman’s Stretch Class 5, employed a lot of what I call “fun factor” for ass lovers to appreciate, the three lovely ladies (Jynx Maze, Tori Lux, and Krissy Lynn) all giving a show worth saving for many repeated viewings so check it out.
