Extras: The extras included trailers, a helpful cast list, individual scene photogalleries, some filmographies, websites, and a pop shot recap.
Audio/Video Quality: Raw 20 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 20, the movie coming out last month when I devoted every waking hour to voting responsibly in industry awards groups. Having watched the series from the beginning, 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. This was another killer volume, showcasing lovely Anikka Albrite but shedding some well needed light on Alison Tyler, Danica Dillon, and Abella Danger too; all four of the curvy women showing chemistry and heated athletic sexual antics with Manuel.
The company website described the flick like this: “In “Raw 20,” director/stud Manuel Ferrara presents intimate, handheld footage shot during private encounters with genuinely lustful girls — this “reality porn” is a voyeur’s eye view of real people having real sex, without make-up or porn fakery. Playful blonde beauty Anikka Albrite’s photo session turns personal; she says Manuel’s asshole “tastes so good,” and her big, rolling rear fills the screen as she impales her pussy and then humps and moans on his massive cock. Gorgeous, friendly Danica Dillon and Manuel talk about club hook-ups and porn shoots; her tan-lined cheeks bounce, her skin blushes in orgasm and she strokes jets of jism onto her face/forehead and into her mouth. Young American Latina Abella Danger poses nude on the bed, back arched and stunning ass launched. She and Manuel kiss and make love, bodies entwined, till he can’t hold back his semen. Buxom six-footer Alison Tyler, a striking Amazon with big, fleshy 36Fs, talks about what it’s like to work with smaller men. She cums hard, multiply, hunching her haunches as Manuel fucks her, and eats the semen she’s drooled into her cleavage.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Anikka Albrite, the delicious looking booty babe featured on the lower half of the front cover, was up first with Manuel Ferrara, the man taking stills of her as she posed in the house wearing tight orange booty shorts and a revealing white top. To say the gal is one of the hottest young ladies in porn would be to understate the obvious, her allure going well beyond just her looks alone. As she bent over, the heart shaped rear was given a lot of visual love by the camera, the gal down to her skimpy thong nestled between her cheeks on the bed which led to her removing it for him to devour orally. He gobbled her gash and she sported much more pubic hair than usual, the camera jumpy as it switched hands to allow him some quality time eating her out front and back. Anikka only has this much chemistry with her current boyfriend and Manuel was getting her really wet as he savored her juices, Anikka’s playfulness enhancing the scene even more though it stood as a series highlight almost immediately. Manuel then set the camera down and set to cover them in a longer shot, the couple kissing as he stripped to move from them necking and doing more oral, her knob slobbing quite powerful in fact, to some heated vaginal positions with taste testing. The energy and enthusiasm punctuated the fine scene, Anikka inhaling his turgid pecker while applying some hand to gland friction, adding in some full service acts to toss his salad as she showed just as much passion for him as he had for her. The active vaginal riding was extra inspirational according to the resulting stains in my pants (I wasn’t even touching myself), as she rubbed out a few during the tryst, Manuel glazing her entire body with a wealth of seed as she drained his dragon, the gal beaming in happiness over his reaction to her as they could their breath in the nearly hour long scene. The company website described the scene like this: “Playful blonde beauty Anikka Albrite poses for stud/pornographer Manuel Ferrara in a skirt that won't cover her fleshy ass. His private, handheld footage shows the photo session turning personal: He eats her big butt and hairy pussy, his nose in her fur. They kiss and fuck, Anikka gasping and moaning, Manuel slapping her natural tits. Anikka sucks cock, laps balls and tells him his asshole 'tastes so good.' Her big, rolling rear fills the screen as she impales her pussy, humps and moans, and he spanks her righteous cheeks. Frenzied fucking with hair pulling, masturbation and Anikka fingering her butthole leads to pussy-to-mouth fellatio. As she blushes in orgasm, he creams her from twat to forehead, and Anikka licks up the cum.”
Scene Two: Danica Dillon, the curvy brunette featured on the upper middle of the front cover, was up next in the bedroom with Manuel Ferrara, the man taking stills as she ever so slowly stripped on the bed. They discussed her ten month old implants, the physically appealing young lady glowing with more confidence than she used to show as she exchanged verbal banter while peeling off her attire. They felt comfortable together and like old friends, another case of chemistry as they kidded about him providing a voice for an animated mainstream movie (clearly kidding though he’d be great at it!). It had been years since they fucked but they clearly wanted to jump each other hard, Manuel setting the camera down as he jumped in bed with her to kiss and caress her frame, gobbling her gash before she sucked the head of his rod while stroking the shaft rapidly and nuzzling his nuts. Her eye contact was excellent and her newfound confidence enhanced her performance considerably, the two moving into some active vaginal riding positions where she impaled herself on him as she ground her hips to get every bit inside her drenched pussy. The sex acts included a fine titty fuck and her continuous smile added to the impact of the scene, her ending hummer pushing him over the edge to bust a nut of sperm on her face. The company website described the scene like this: “Gorgeous, friendly Danica Dillon shows stud/pornographer Manuel Ferrara her impressive, new D-cup boobs. His private, handheld footage shows a photo session turning personal as they tell of porn shoots and club hook-ups. He sucks tits and pussy; she strokes/licks massive cock and balls, beautiful eyes looking into the camera. Raw footage looks like two real people making love. Danica's tan-lined cheeks bounce as she rides cock, and she rubs spit into his prick as she fills herself. Her chest, neck and face blush in orgasm. He sucks her foot and fucks her big boobs; she fingers her own asshole and sucks dick pussy-to-mouth. Kneeling for a POV-style blow job, Danica strokes jets of jism onto her face, forehead, into her mouth, down to her tits and thigh!”
Scene Three: Abella Danger, a newcomer who has a lot of scenes coming from the company soon, was up next in bed with Manuel Ferrara, the gal starting off naked to show her wondrous ass so well that he sang her praises endlessly. That she also had pretty eyes and a fresh face added to my appreciation of the sexy young lass, Manuel setting the camera down early to dive into her sweetly curved ass and tongue her pussy as she moaned various pleasantries. She then reciprocated with a hand assisted hummer, her inability to take more than a small portion of him into her mouth understandable as she pumped him silly while sucking the head. He was inside her quickly after that, setting the camera down yet again to focus on doing most of the work, the perky young babe sporting a bald beaver and trying very hard to ride him more actively despite their size differences. The ending hummer came faster than expected too, Manuel unleashing his seed on her face as the impressed man insisted on getting some more shots of the appealing lady’s ass. The company website described the scene like this: “Abella Danger is a young, longhaired, full-lipped American Latina with big, brown eyes. Stud pornographer Manuel Ferrara poses her nude on the bed, back arched and ass launched, and he squeezes her all-real tits -- she's a natural beauty! Abella likes the way he spanks and licks her stunning rear, and his handheld footage shows a photo session turning very personal. Soon she's blowing and stroking his huge, uncut cock. The camera catches a voyeur's eye view of them kissing and making love, bodies entwined. Abella impales herself on his uncut slab and masturbates, moaning, ass humping impressively as she cums. Suddenly he can't hold it! Abella kneels to swallow the semen he dumps in her mouth.”
Scene Four: Alison Tyler, the busy babe featured on the upper left hand corner of the front cover, was up last with Manuel Ferrara, the gal discussing how she is six foot tall while he pointed out how she would be perfect to portray “Wonder Woman” (Alison suggesting her or Phoenix Marie would be best). The conversation led to how she was taller than many of the males in porn which pushed some of the micro-mopes to get more forceful to compensate and then a lot of admiration for her large boobs. Alison is a fleshy gal and perfectly so I might add, Manuel recognizing how amazing she has been the entire time she has been in the industry (they first met on a Digital Playground set years prior) as she reclined in bed. She had a neatly trimmed triangle of pubic hair and he played peek a boo with her marvelous tits, Manuel setting the camera down to go down on her, savor her breasts orally, and start porking her pussy as she really went wild riding him as though on fire in the chemistry filled tryst. She then provided full service oral on him, his pecker, balls, and taint area all covered by her ministrations, Alison mounting him for more penetration and a titty fuck before he was back inside of her. The scene was another series highlight for me, the couple going virtually nonstop before she presented her incredible ass to him as she backed up for more vaginal fun that led to her facial and titty pop. The company website described the scene like this: “Stretching naked on Manuel Ferrara's king-size bed, buxom six-footer Alison Tyler is a striking beauty. The imposing, tattooed woman sports a patch of pussy fur and big, fleshy 36Fs. Manuel's private, handheld footage shows two porn pros being real on their own time -- they talk about what it's like for a porn 'Amazon' to work with smaller men, and she smothers his head for tit-worshiping 'peek-a-boobs.' As Manuel's camera records a voyeur's eye view, they kiss and make love. Alison straddles his massive cock, hunching her haunches as he squeezes boobs and spanks her ass. She cums hard, blushing, and gives a pussy-to-mouth blow job shot POV-style. After a titty fuck and lots more orgasmic fucking, she drools semen into her cleavage and eats it.”

Summary: Raw 20 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel had a lot of fuck for the buck thanks to the chemistry between the performers, all of the four sexual trysts providing plenty of replay value. 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. While the highlight act was clearly adorable and sexy Anikka Albrite, Abella Danger’s ass remains on my short list for body parts to continuously ogle, Alison Tyler’s busty good looks, and Danica Dillon’s complete appeal sure help explain their legions of fans. In short then, Raw 20, 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. While I have long sung the praises for the lengthier scenes of early volumes that sported double disc sets, the editing looked a bit tighter here, sure to win over some of the hold outs that want their scenes fast and dirty over complete and extensive, a win for all thanks to the evolving factors driving the production so give this one a long, hard look.
