Cast: Kira Noir, Manuel Ferrara, Ana Foxxx, Layton Benton, Teanna Trump
Length: 137:42 minutes
Date of Production: 2015
Extras: The extras were about average. the 16:04 minute long Behind the Scenes feature including the ladies getting interviewed (pre and post scene in some cases), a 4:26 minute long pop shot recap, a photogallery, some trailers, and company websites.
Audio/Video Quality: Special Dark was offered up in a decent anamorphic widescreen as shot by credited director Manuel Ferrara for Jules Jordan Video. The lighting was plentiful and the camera work stronger than before, some minor framing issues at times but the flesh tones accurate for a gonzo production. The uncredited editing had some rough patches too but it wasn’t as heavy handed as others have been of late, the video bit rate varying substantially and the ever present company watermark observed on the lower right hand corner of the screen at all times. The aural qualities were similar to most porn, appearing to be captured by the camera mounted microphone rather than having someone use a boom mike but the vocals were generally understandable and not over dubbed, the generic music only a bother during certain portions of the tease sequences, and the overall mix handled competently.
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is a popular performer turned director at Jules Jordan Video, his extensive use of his own talents as a central selling point garnering some attention from fans and the female performers who always hold the guy in the highest of regards. The latest project credited as such is called Special Dark, an all interracial movie where the leading male performer in porn bones some quality black ladies. The scenes would start off with some appreciated tease montages and then progress to the ladies jumping all over Manuel, the four lengthy scenes including attractive black ladies such as Layton Benton, Ana Foxxx, Teanna Trump, and Kira Noir; two of them even doing anal this time (Ana and Kira). Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Kira Noir, the lean black gal featured on the lower right corner of the front cover, was up first with Manuel Ferrara, the young lady built for speed over comfort as the director explored her body initially in POV. Her nipples were erect and she had a pronounced arrow shaped landing strip of pubic hair, Manuel admiring her curvy little ass as she bent over for him and pressed her ass against his crotch. Out of the four ladies in the movie, Kira came across as something of a wild child of the group, her superior eye contact and desire to do anal with the director combining with the exotic hairstyle to add some flavor to the scene. She stripped out of her classic red lingerie to tease him in the contemporary home, smiling a lot and touching herself, Manuel also admiring her fine DSL’s (dick sucking lips) before she offered him her ass. He gave her a couple of dildos to stretch out and warm up with (the lighter colored one actually bigger per his joke in the BTS section of the DVD), Kira practicing blowing them before one went in each hole. Her perfect pucker readily accommodated one while her delicious pussy took the other with relative ease, Kira taste testing them before Manuel gobbled her gash and ass to her great appreciation. He savored both holes rather than provide a few licks as weaker males might do, conveying his very real adoration of the appealing young lady. Kira then knelt to slob his knob aggressively, nuzzling his nuts and applying some hand to gland friction as her eyes let him know she was into it all, saliva flying everywhere as she encouraged him to get a little rough and she throated him to his liking. She even licked his taint before continuing, the couple kissing before the penetrative positions began, her active vaginal riding followed by quickly active anal, some taste testing leading to her draining his dragon of sperm for a major facial finish. Once he hit her in the eye with a stream of his manly juices, she closed her eyes for the first time, Kira tasting his seed like it was candy before waving goodbye to the camera.
Scene Two: Ana Foxxx, the all natural beauty featured on the entire left side of the front cover, was up next as she bent over in the home to show her firm young ass as her cover outfit barely covered any of her frame. In terms of that youthful appeal many fans like, Ana was tops this time, her delicious ass leaner than many but alluring all the same. Ana was among the most flexible of the ladies from the cast and her outfit ran deep inside her ass crack to nestle between her cheeks as Manuel Ferrara played with her in POV, the gal knowing how to work it to full advantage in a playful manner while she giggled and smiled in a most pleasing manner. She ended up on a beige couch, a familiar one at that, and while the lighting was plentiful, it was not always optimal, a condition found throughout the movie’s four scenes. That said, Ana came across a couple of glass dildos and was soon masturbating with them anally, leaving me slightly surprised that both anal scenes were placed next to each other, this leading to her dropping down to blow Manuel’s turgid pecker. She crawled over from the cough by the colorful pool table to take him in her mouth, the no hand’s approach followed by her using her hands to enhance the levels of friction. Her eye contact was also superior and she skillfully jerked him off as she blew him, the camera leaving the POV angle to include Manuel more as he fucked her throat, Ana treating his balls to some attention as well as his raging boner. She just about throated him, at least to the point where her tongue was touching his balls, when he gave her a break to provide her some attention orally, diving deep in her splendid ass as both took off their clothing and alternated pleasuring the other. From there he tore up her bald beaver and then her ass, her love of licking his balls continued until she impaled herself on his cock enthusiastically. While Ana was more active at riding vaginally, she did seem to enjoy the anal too, kneeling to milk his balls dry of semen as he doused her face thoroughly with gobs of goo, the gal enjoying his seed as the light washed out her face and she crawled off to the other room.
Scene Three: Layton Benton, the alluring black 24 year old lady featured on the upper right corner of the front cover, was up next as she showed off her glorious ass and thicker curves in the house, the fine woman wearing her cover outfit of pink mesh and black fishnet stockings as she displayed herself to Manuel Ferrara in POV fashion. Though each of the ladies in the movie was highly fuckable, I freely admit that Layton had the kind of “built for comfort over speed” body shape I most admired, not quite fleshy enough to merit the label of “fluffy” or BBW but certainly a sturdy young hotty who will always be welcome in any porn I watch. Her thong was lost in her divine ass crack as she teased the director, her all natural boobs pushed together as her nipples poked through the mesh drove him crazy, her willingness to bounce both rack and ass a nice touch, as was following her as she climbed the staircase. When she bent over, her precious pucker looked most inviting too, Manuel rubbing his thumb on it despite that scene being vaginal only, her shaven slit already juicy as she played with it, the scene later showing her “squirting”. While she did not throat him during her handjob and blowjob, she took a considerable amount of his cock in her mouth, spending some time savoring his balls with her tongue and offering some dirty talk, Manuel repeatedly getting lost in her awesome tits before going down on her to her liking. I had no doubt he got her off more than once by his oral efforts and he was soon pounding her pussy like crazy, her solid eye contact and their mutual chemistry obvious (and the contrast of her dark skin with his lighter flesh tone even addressed by Manuel as he pushed further inside of her wonderfully wet slit). Both gave more head in energetic fashion and he did make her squirt, her pussy already so juicy from their efforts that I wanted some myself, the active vaginal riding and titty fucking leading to Manuel nutting hard on the second round of titty play. Layton then licked her tits to enjoy his juices and the scene closed out. The company website described the scene like this: “Manuel Ferrara gets to taste the chocolate goodness that is buxom Layton Benton. This amazing babe is built for fucking and if anyone is going to properly pound her tight little holes, it's Manuel. He takes his time feeling every inch of her, including her massive booty that he can't wait to sink his teeth into. This cutie likes being spanked and asks for her tiny little pussy to be stretched out. It's impossible to say no to that and Layton lays her beautiful mouth onto his massive pole to warm it up and wet it down. These two have a hell of a time and Manuel is sure to return the oral favors when he buries his face and fingers into her itty bitty hole. Ready for the real deal, Layton gets her brains fucked out and those natural tits bounce like crazy and she pushes those pups together a few times, just the way he likes. The load he delivers between those perfect jugs was well earned and Layton is proud of her gooey prize.”
Scene Four: Teanna Trump, the increasingly adorable young lady featured on the center of the front cover in pink lingerie, was up last with Manuel Ferrara, the fetching young lass showing off outside by the pool as she shook her thighs and ass cheeks to distraction. Her nipples poked through the fabric of her outfit and her thigh high stockings added to her appeal as much as her lengthy tongue licking her lips, some lens flare bugging me from poor placement of the camera in relation to the sun as the wonderful cutie showed her yummy snatch and landing strip, everything about the lady standing out as a next generation name to be reckoned with. The playful verbal banter between the couple in POV led to her quickly running into the house to find a striped glass dildo on the luxurious white recliner (built for two), her moist pussy tightly wrapping around the toy as she warmed up and tasted her own juices adding to the tease. While her heart shaped ass was not as thick as Layton’s, it was very inviting and curvy for such a lean gal, her continued tease with the dildo leading her around the living room until her solo masturbation efforts led to naked Manuel joining her. She gave him a passionate hummer with a double handed meat beater hand job included, the delighted look in her eyes as she savored his turgid boner a plus as was her full service oral, Teanna dropping down to do more than just suck his balls but to toss his salad as well, Manuel reciprocating orally before they actively fucked like they were on fire. Teanna is always best with certain high quality men and Manuel sure fit the bill here, the athletic lady spreading her legs over her head and their standing fuck impressive to say the least. That she continued working him to the bone added to the replay value for me, just like all the others strutting their stuff so powerfully for personal best scenes, Teanna ramped up her act a great deal to enjoy herself as she climaxed. In the end, she knelt and took several heavy streams of sperm to her eyes, her face looking like a glazed donut before she gave some post coital head and swallowed some of his seed in a rousing finishing scene to appreciate.
Summary: Special Dark by director Manuel Ferrara for Jules Jordan Video was a great idea in how it combined the industry’s top male performer, Manuel Ferrara, with some top quality black ladies that do not often get the kind of appreciation they deserve. The ladies included anal enthusiasts Ana Foxxx and Kira Noir as well as sexy little Teanna Trump and curvy hotty Layton Benton to earn a rating of Highly Recommended, the replay value and strokability in great quantities to say the least. In short, Special Dark was a decent set of four high quality gonzo scenes centering on Manuel having interracial sex, enough of a change of pace to merit giving this one a look if you are into the cast or not, the interracial aspect not the sole selling point by any means.
