Audio/Video Quality: Raw 25 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 recently released single disc Raw 25, the movie living up to the series in terms of selecting attractive women for the lead to work with. This time, Manuel served up four scenes with a stunning array of attractive ladies, each one of them the kind that could be showcased on their own but added to the overall quality of action, from experienced beauties like Kendra Lust and Mercedes Carrera to busty blond bombshells like Summer Brielle, to the fresh newcomer almsot certain to garner more press than her peers for all the right reasons with Blair Williams. 

The company website described the show like this: “Manuel Ferrara’s private sex life would never be believed if there were no video cameras to document it! In “Raw 25,” the French-American director/stud takes us on a tour of his latest conquests — stunning porn babes eager to sample Manuel’s famously huge, uncircumcised cock. Tall blonde beauty Blair Williams meets the director in his hotel room. The young slut gets ruthlessly pounded, and Manuel spurts hot cum into her mouth. A gorgeous, big-assed Latina MILF, seductive Mercedes Carrera works her talented mouth and tongue over the director’s gigantic prick. The raven-haired babe rides his shaft, her phat booty bouncing, and slurps up a load of creamy cum. Curvy MILF brunette Kendra Lust gets fucked, and she even rims Manuel’s butthole. She squeezes her knockers around his meat, sucking until it erupts. Voluptuous blonde doll Summer Brielle and her gigantic hooters enjoy a passionate fucking, and Summer gobbles his messy wad of jism. Manuel’s “Raw” series is “reality porn,” offering a “voyeur’s eye view” without conventional X-rated fakery.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:



Scene One: Blair Williams, the adorable blond featured on the upper left corner of the front cover (with the pretty eyes), was up first with Manuel Ferrara, the man picking her up for the longest scene of the movie with all the trimmings, some verbal bantering included as they set out to make what I considered to be her best scene yet, a more personalized version of their recent encounter from “Manuel’s Fucking POV 5” I liked so much. Manuel was driving around expounding about meeting Blair at the AVN nomination party late last year, introduced by Alexis Texas, the man clearly thinking very highly of her. They were in a familiar hotel room overlooking the valley where she entered with a black dress on, the two kissing right away with the kind of energy and mutual attraction that set the stage for a great scene. Facially, she looked a little like a hotter version of a mainstream Hollywood A-lister, the fit young lady truly looking smoking hot as she smiled a broad smile while sitting down on the hotel couch in the room, Manuel revealing some flattering details of their encounter and follow up (Blair doing likewise). He set the camera down and they began kissing again, both into the action as she mounted his lap and pulled up her dress with his help. He gobbled gash and she slobbed knob, some hand to gland friction included as they whispered to each other, the long camera shot including everything as they explored each other’s bodies in a passionate bout of boning. They ended up in bed to continue after a short break, her neatly shaven pussy and fresh looking slit as delicious as her juicy ass, her labia getting puffy as they kept going at it. She eventually provided him some full service oral, tossing his salad and nuzzling his nuts, maintaining her wonderful eye contact as they moved about the room for more, taking full advantage of the scene to get their first fuck out of the way and calm their built up sexual tension down for all the times in the future I hope to see them. While this wasn’t an anal scene, both of them played with her perfect pucker a little and in the end she drained his dragon of sperm well enough that they seemed to really have the “fun factor” missing in weaker scenes, to a level that it stood out even for Manuel, her intense oral showing her swallow it all. The company website described the scene like this: “Legendary porn stud Manuel Ferrara meets tall blonde beauty Blair Williams in his hotel room for their first date. After a little kissing and conversation, Blair straddles the older man's lap, peeling off her skintight black dress. Soon she's sucking Manuel's enormous cock and sitting on his face in a lewd 69 position. The soft young slut rims his butthole; the lucky director fucks Blair from behind, fingering her tight anus, and finally spurts hot cum into her eager mouth.”



Scene Two: Mercedes Carrera, a curvy Latina brunette that stands out as a personal favorite of Manuel Ferrara, was up next in a scene comparable to any of their other scenes together (surpassing them for the most part) though they got right down to business without some of the establishing footage I would have liked. I was surprised that she was not featured on the front cover, the finely curved young lady certainly as desirable as most of her peers here but the important thing was the quality of her scene to me. The scene started with the camera zoomed in on a close up of her yummy ass with a red thong nestled deep inside her ass crack in bed, some modest verbal bantering and light caressing showing a kind of physical connection between them of an established pair of lovers, his finger easily sliding into her bald beaver given how wet she was for him. He was scruffy from lack of shaving but they kissed passionately, Manuel sucking her tit before she eased down to tease his turgid pecker, licking it and inhaling the shaft as she gave seductive looks in the POV hummer portion of the scene. That sultry look of hers was in stark contrast to the wholesome appeal of Blair in the first scene, Mercedes spending extra time tossing his salad as part of the initial blowjob rather than wait until the scene was well underway. Manuel then reciprocated by nestling between her spread legs to devour her pussy and ass, driving Mercedes wild before he stood up to slid his raging boner inside her pussy, the gal initially enjoying him doing all the work but soon becoming an active vaginal rider too, pushing back to meet his thrusts so well that I again questioned why she wasn’t featured on the front cover (because she earned it big time!). The lighting got a little strong at the end of the scene to wash her fleshtones out a bit but she remained enthusiastic as she blew him to completion, milking his balls dry of semen while she gingerly gave some post coital head. The company website described the scene like this: “A gorgeous, big-assed Latina MILF, seductive Mercedes Carrera shares her hotel bed with legendary French porn stud Manuel Ferrara. He shoots the busty beauty POV-style as Mercedes eagerly works her talented mouth and tongue over the director's gigantic, uncircumcised prick. The voluptuous, raven-haired babe rides his shaft, her phat booty bouncing, and slurps her own pussy juice from his throbbing tool. Before long, Manuel is spewing a load of hot lava into Mercedes' hungry mouth.”



Scene Three: Kendra Lust, the experienced hotty featured on the right side of the front cover, was up next with Manuel Ferrara, their previous works together speaking for themselves as did this scene where the two boned like horned up teenagers on prom night. I’ll say up front that I adore Kendra and even at her worst she is better than a great many in the industry when it comes to her sexual skills and allure, the attractive brunette spreading her perfect pussy on the white sofa bed rather than be given any build up or extensive dialog. She casually masturbated and showed off her lean hardbody for the camera too, her heart shaped ass as glorious as ever while she stood up to finger herself. The gal being built for comfort over speed was a given, her enhanced chest as well done as you will find and just a slight landing strip of pubic hair observed as she put on a show for the director, the man joining her to kiss and warm her up though she was already willing to jump his bones like crazy. She eased on top of him as the rest of their coverings fell off, her active riding showing her pump her ass and hips at an increasing pace before the fuck fest moved to a POV session showing her give him a full service oral treatment, his balls and ass given a great deal of love before she mounted him yet again for more vaginal fun. There was even a titty fuck before she used both hands to push him over the edge in a final blowjob, one jerking him off as the other stimulated his balls (maybe more, it was hard to tell given the camera angle), until he exploded in her mouth with a frothy reward of liquid lunch. The company website described the scene like this: “Mature, impossibly curvy brunette Kendra Lust is on a private date with director Manuel Ferrara. Fully nude, reclining on a futon, Kendra seductively strokes her pussy for the camera; the well-hung stud can't resist joining the busty slut and shoving his gigantic tool inside. Kendra rides him and slurps her juices from his schlong; she tongues Manuel's balls and even rims his butthole. After a passionate fucking, Kendra squeezes her knockers around the director's meat, sucking until his dick erupts with spunk.”



Scene Four: Summer Brielle Taylor, the luxuriously fleshy blond bombshell featured on the lower left corner of the front cover, was surprisingly the only replay of the cast to bump uglies with Manuel Ferrara this time, the pretty young babe memorable from their tryst together in “Raw 17”. She exuded more self confidence this time and quickly established she was more than just a glorious ass in their bed bound boning session, her superior eye contact and overall friendliness with the director exceeding my expectations as she pushed herself to new limits of chemistry with him. This was another case where she was already in bed and barely dressed, her gigantic boobs barely wrapped in a pink stripped bra about two sizes too small and matching panties, her brilliant eyes I always blab about adding to her facial beauty as she gave him knowing looks. He set the camera down for a long shot and jumped in bed to appreciate all she had to offer, her thong riding in her wonderful ass and their kissing leading to some awfully slow underwear removal, Summer straddling his lap and slowly grinding as he sucked her tits and they kissed some more. They both gave excellent head and yes, she did toss his salad as advertised, her superior eye contact adding to the effect as some POV camera work was added in, a myriad of penetrative positions eventually causing him to plaster her mug with his seed for her to enjoy in yet another fine example of why some guys are better than others in the industry. The company website described the scene like this: “Voluptuous blonde bimbo Summer Brielle brings her gigantic hooters along on an intimate, private date in director Manuel Ferrara's bedroom. While kissing, Summer straddles him, removing her pink bra so Manuel can worship her enormous, round jugs. She eagerly sucks his massive member and even rims his asshole! Manuel stuffs his famously huge, uncut cock inside her shaved cunt and gives the curvaceous knockout a passionate fucking. Summer eagerly gobbles his messy, creamy load.”


Summary: Raw 25 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel had solid levels of fuck for the buck thanks to the chemistry between the performers, all of the four sexual trysts strokable with the kind of replay value I appreciate. Going into the movie, I heavily favored Kendra as the top performer given her cover placement but Blair stood out really well, Mercedes was a wonderful piece of ass, and Summer seemed so into Manuel that each scene stood on its own. The overall energy and fun factor quotient assisted in meriting a rating of Highly Recommended, only some missing set up footage and extras keeping me from rating it our highest rating, no wonder the series is so well liked. In short then, Raw 25 had ample samples to deliver the goods consistently in a way that only Manuel and a really small number of his peers can, the ladies all hand picked to bring out the best in him so check it out.
