Audio/Video Quality: Raw 17 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 17, the movie coming out later this month for those keeping track. Having watched the series from the beginning (I may have missed one volume 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 curvy Amy Anderssen to adorable Mia Rose, multi-award winning Remy LaCroix, and Summer Brielle Taylor, 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: “French-American director/stud Manuel Ferrara goes right to the meat of sexual relationships in his intimate "Raw" series, in which he brings his camera on private dates with the adult industry's most lustful girls. Stripped of all porn pretense, the behind-the-scenes-style "Raw 17" is like a voyeur's eye-view of action that's real as fuck! Manuel's been jacking off all week to the videos of outrageously voluptuous Amy Anderssen, and with this black-haired sex doll in his hotel room, he gets to squeeze his meat between her enormous globes. Amy rides the director's giant cock and gets her heaving chest splattered with sperm. Adorable, all-natural, young princess Remy LaCroix treats Manuel to another hotel encounter, slurping the director's huge boner and getting her pretty cunt filled with throbbing cock meat. After he showers Remy's tiny frame with hot jism, she sucks out the last drops. Buxom blonde Summer Brielle worships Manuel's enormous member with her mouth and pussy, and he fingers the big-lipped bombshell to a juicy, squirting orgasm. Finally, Manuel visits one of his favorite sex partners, Mia Rose, at her house. The two enjoy a nasty reunion after over three years. Mia takes a relentless banging and a hot load of sperm right in her pretty face. "Raw 17" is pure sex and unfiltered emotion for fans that prefer real fucking over porn pretense.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:


Scene One: Amy Anderssen, the incredibly curvy young brunette featured on the front cover, was up first as she walked into the motel room in a skin tight blue outfit. Manuel Ferrara was taken aback by how ginormous her tits and ass were, Amy posing before they bantered back and forth verbally. To say she left an impression on him would not go far enough, Manuel wanting to take some stills of her in what rarely happens in the series, the man admitting he had been jerking off to her scenes for some time. She posed on the bed and slowly took off her clothing, her boobs looking too out there for my tastes but that ass was to die for. Manuel started working her over by stuffing his face between her ass cheeks, her ripe rump causing the growing bulge in his pants to become a turgid pecker in record time, Amy aurally encouraging him to gobble her gash and eat her ass as he nestled between her legs both front and back. This led to her providing him with an energetic blowjob, some itty fucking and rubbing driving him crazy as she licked his shaft and slobbed the knob seductively. There was some hand to gland friction included along the way but her eye contact was really strong and she knew how to tease him using her ass cheeks to rub his erection ever so slowly. The vaginal penetration showed both of them to actively participate, more oral and titty play keeping him on edge to explode as she rode his cock really hard. There were numerous times I thought he’d lose his genetic juice early but he held out valiantly until the ending wave of pleasure forced his balls to unleash his baby batter all over her torso.


Scene Two: Remy LaCroix, a powerhouse performer in gonzo that has evolved of late to become a solid actress in features, was up next as she discussed various things with Manuel Ferrara. She was wearing some colorful stretch pants and a loose crop top, the gal shaking her ample ass as Manuel started to paw it. They reminisced about their past together, their first scene directed to be rough though it pushed her limits too far, their mutual adoration society pointing fingers at a certain female director resulting in the disclosure that Manuel has made her cry twice in scenes together (or because of them at least). That brought them full circle and they were really wanting to go at it, Manuel setting the camera down in order to take some time and fully experience all there is to Remy, the gal seemingly doing likewise as they kissed and caressed at a snail’s pace with mutual respect and appreciation. Her pants came down to reveal a sexy blue thong riding up her sweet ass cheeks, Manuel positioning on top of her to go down on her at length, her pubic mound offering as much hair as his sporting beard as they went out of their way to be gentle to one another. It was a really nice change of pace too, her blowjob showing a similar dynamic as she sucked his head and stroked the shaft gingerly, a lot of great eye contact with those dreamy eyes of hers leading to some very active vaginal riding. There was more oral by both of them and she looked smoking hot in doggy when she spread her legs wide apart as he boned her, the resolution of the picture not the best due to low lighting but their chemistry undeniable (and leading to her bent over the desk for more). The intensity of the tryst built with time too and he had her jerk him off all over her body, the streams of population pudding gracing her from head to lower pelvic region, Remy slowly sucking out the remaining spunk as she knelt before him. GFS! (Great Fucking Scene!)


Scene Three: Summer Brielle Taylor, a curvy blond with a yummy sized ass, was up next in the hotel room bed, Manuel Ferrara complimenting her as she posed for him briefly. He set the camera down to kiss her and just as her thong rode into her ass crack, her eyes betrayed her appreciation of his talented mannerisms. He set the camera down to continue kissing her, his hands roaming her body as both of them started ditching their attire, Manuel making her laugh out loud as he struggled to peel off her pants the rest of the way. As he nestled between her legs while they kissed, he moved downward to savor her juices, her curvy tits stopping him momentarily but not for too long as he wanted to get her off. He then picked the camera back up as she went down on him, her eyes, mouth, and hands working in unison to give him a polished performance orally. There was a lot of stroking taking place and she throated most of his member briefly, the gal going nasty to lick his taint as she jerked him off with her tongue presumably tossing his salad the way she looked at him. From there she mounted him with her bald beaver, power riding his cock as she got off repeatedly, her juices flowing so freely that he drenched the room with his hand at one point, Manuel choking her and otherwise catering to her kinky desires just as she had done for him. By the end of the scene, she was completely spent and she earned every drop of the splooge he glazed her with, both of them needing breaks to maintain their energy levels before it was over.


Scene Four: Mia Rose, a curvy lady with beautiful eyes and an every increasingly hot ass, was up last with Manuel Ferrara, the couple having had a great many intense scenes together over the years. There are a handful of women who have really shined under his watch like few others, Mia always welcome as far as I’m concerned given the strength of their mutual chemistry and way they click so tightly in their scenes together. They pointed out how their first scene together was when she was a mere 18 years old, the years having been extremely kind to her genetically as she truly looks better every year. Whether Mia has a Dorian Grey styled secret lying about or not, she looked forward to pairing up with Manuel as much as he did with her, the sparks flying as he set down the camera to kiss and caress her. Mia did likewise with him, enjoying the manner in which he literally worshipped her fleshy ass in adoring fashion, some rough stuff like pulling hair or love taps encouraged as both provided some friendly oral. This was the lengthiest scene of the bunch too, giving them the needed time to top previous performances, or at very least match them, the couple taking breaks as needed to last longer and enjoy the moment to the fullest. Some posing for stills led to her doing more booty clapping, Mia certainly a talented young lady willing to enhance the experience for her fans 8 years later. By the time Manuel unleashed his spooge all over her face, the ball batter took her by surprise, the man admitting that he tried to last much longer with her but just couldn’t (a huge compliment).

Summary: Raw 17 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel had great 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, hard 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. Sparks flew between Manuel and Remy LaCroix, there was a great deal of chemistry with Mia Rose, Summer Brielle Taylor proved to be as enthusiastic to work with him as ever, and Amy really cranked it up to deliver a very strokable tryst. In short then, Raw 17, 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 previous 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.
