Audio/Video Quality: Raw 19 was presented in a nice 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel. The visual elements for the series are rarely optimal, Manuel often places the small video camera on a table or other convenient location to allow him a hands free experience with the ladies and the lighting is whatever is available, but they suffice to convey the raw energy of the chemistry filled sexual trysts he gets by picking women that truly want to work with him. As such, this volume in the series looked similar to previous efforts, the enthusiasm and passion provided more than making up for the modest technical values as presented. The audio was also on the modest side, the microphone built into the camera capturing whatever sounds it could, the vocals usually easy enough to hear even when the partners whisper to each other though some of the ambient sounds do get in the way from time to time.
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is one of the few male performers always able to truly enhance a scene, his work at Evil Angel showcasing how he adores ladies of all types. His latest title in for review is the single disc Raw 19, the movie coming out later this month for those keeping track. Having watched the series from the beginning (I may have missed a volume or two along the way), I have extolled Manuel’s many manly virtues with the ladies, his ability to get them off making this series the type where women line up to do anything he wants to participate in a lengthy showcase scene with him. From the featured cover act Jessa Rhodes, to AJ Applegate, to newcomer Harley Dean and director favorite Kiara Mia, there were no throwaway scenes at all in the volume, the chemistry and heated athletic sexual antics always top notch between Manuel and the ladies.
The company website described the flick like this: “Hugely hung stud/director Manuel Ferrara's "Raw" series delivers minimally edited footage of his intimate dates with the most lustful women he knows. "Raw 19" is like a voyeur's eye view of sexual reality, as opposed to porn artifice. All-natural blonde beauty Jessa Rhodes arrives at his hotel ready for a special date. After slurping on his enormous cock, Jessa rides him passionately, grinding on his massive member until he showers her with cum. Petite black stunner Harley Dean likes sex to be both aggressive and tender, and that's what she gets! The director thoroughly fucks and fingers Harley until she squirts in an intense climax. Lovely, pale AJ Applegate has a luscious face and a booty built for ass fucking, which the director can't resist. This sultry vixen eagerly submits to Manuel's ruthless anal pounding. Latina queen Kiara Mia tempts Manuel with her thick, round ass and gigantic whoppers, humping him until he splatters her face with goo.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jessa Rhodes, the lean blond featured on the upper half of the front cover (with the nice ass), was up first with Manuel Ferrara in a hotel room. She wore a lacey white crop top and a colorful skirt (slit up to here!), the young bleach blond not having worked with the director in the past as far as I can remember. They kissed and discussed what he wanted from her, Manuel taking some still shots as she peeled her attire off slowly. When she got down to her panties, Manuel set the still camera down and knelt between her legs to gobble her gash, Jessa moaning like she won the lottery as he played with her nipples too. As she lost her undies, they further consummated their new relationship, some vaginal fucking leading to Jessa aggressively slobbing his knob, the sheer size of it compared to her arm and head telling me she wouldn’t be throating him this time, some hand to gland friction included as she sucked the top few inches and some fine eye contact (Jessa has very pretty eyes) enhancing the encounter before she impaled herself by mounting his turgid pecker with her neatly trimmed snatch to more actively ride him. By the expressions on her face, her erect nipples, and the relative lack of edit points, I felt she showed all the signs of adoring the guy, Jessa getting off more than once as the tryst continued. It eventually ended when he bathed her in semen, glazing her entire torso from crotch to neck with his seed (Jessa tasting it like it was nectar).
Scene Two: Harley Dean, an exotic little newcomer with light black skin and a small but tight figure, was up next in the hotel room, Manuel Ferrara watching her prance around naked with all her ink and her pierced but bald beaver beckoning his attention. He set the camera down earlier here to give her a kiss, joining her in bed to give her exactly what she wanted of him, some erotic love making capped by rough sex once she was suitably turned on. The kisses and caresses led to him going down on her, the positioned camera not catching the oral all that well other than in seeing her reactions most of the time. Still, there was little question regarding how into the action she already was, Manuel climbing onto her for some vaginal penetration positions, the playful sprite actively riding his rod with a growing sense of intensity and enthusiasm. She rubbed a few out along the way too, finally draining his dragon by taking matters into her own hands to stroke him to completion all across her body and face, his wealth of sperm looking like he came off an extended break.
Scene Three: A.J. Applegate, one of the most fetching young ladies in all of porn, was up next on the hotel room bed wearing a colorful thong positioned deep in her magnificent ass as she and Manuel Ferrara chatted. They always seem to show some chemistry together and he wasted no time crawling over to her to play with her juicy ass. This led to a lot of kissing, hugs, and light touches by both of them, Manuel munching her bald beaver before they began to fuck vaginally. Manuel picked up the camera to capture AJ blowing him and actively riding his cock from there, the vaginal sex moving to anal where she wasn’t as active but she still looked great. Her ass was perfect and she gave it up to him without hesitation, Manuel slapping her ass a little but always making it clear how much he was into her. She gave him regular bouts of head between the penetrative portions of the scene too, their chemistry and her energy adding to the replay value before she took hold of him and feverously jerked him off to land his sperm all over herself.
Scene Four: Kiara Mia, a very busty, very curvy brunette that Manuel Ferrara has been working with a lot of late, was up last with him in the hotel room as she reclined on the bed teasing him with her boobs. He sucked them and kissed her, his ginger touches showing a chemistry filled connection as their foreplay led to him going down on her and squeezing her tits. They fucked like bunnies before she gave him some full service head, Kiara sucking his balls and tossing his salad as she eyed him with some fine eye contact. He loved her nasty side and loved when she climbed onto his cock to bounce, the active ride punctuated by more oral and her diddling herself to an orgasm as she further tethered herself to his lustful heart, I half expect the couple to have a kid someday given the strength of their apparent connection together. In any case, the continued to fuck and suck until he jerked off all over her face pressed against the dresser, Kiara laughing at his jokes and surveying the seed as she licked some from her face.

Summary: Raw 19 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel had strong amounts of fuck for the buck thanks in large part to the chemistry between the performers, all of the four sexual trysts of the sort people seeing it will remember for a long time. The raw energy and passion exhibited by all the players here gave it great replay value and strokability, the fun factor high enough to earn a rating of Highly Recommended. I was most enthusiastic about seeing the director with AJ Applegate and Jessa Rhodes here, his recent work with Kiara Mia certainly showing he currently favors her, and sexy little newcomer Harley Dean acquitted herself better than most. In short then, Raw 19, like all the volumes in the series before it, was a tribute to just how well some ladies respond to the strongest male performer in the porn industry, the ladies singing his praises as they earned accolades themselves. Of interest to some folks this time is that a few of the scenes were markedly shorter than in earlier volumes (many of which were double disc releases unlike this one), my preference being to get as much fuck for the buck as possible while others like tighter scenes that skip a lot of the frills to concentrate on fucking as was typically the case here so check it out when it is released later this month.
