In 2010, Manuel Ferrara spent lots of time working on and releasing his Raw series, which is a highly evolving series where Manuel Ferrara compiles previously unreleased footage, raw and unaltered footage from his personal files where he spends intimate time with many porn starlets amid vacations, business trips and free time. I had no idea this series would have continued like this and I thought the first Raw would have been the end-all-be-all. I really enjoy browsing through the personal works of many artists and sometimes, they turn out to be the artists greatest accomplishments (I.E. John Woo’s Bullet in the Head was his greatest achievement, though it was a box office flop amid it’s 1990 release). Manuel Ferrara is a good pornographer and a much better performer (I still feel the first Raw is his number one greatest video, on top of the third and sixth installment of the series, Evil Anal 8 & Phat Bottom Girls 3). I also didn’t feel as if I’d be seeing anymore videos like this, but after the constant 5-star reviews X-Critic had given most of the series and seeing the females he’d cast, I decided to give it a shot.
After creating a forum discussion about the series here at ADT asking which volumes in the series are perfect in everyone’s individual opinion, one forum member brought me to my senses: It depends on the kind of women you enjoy (Raw 4 seems to have a cast of feisty BBWs, including Phoenix Marie and Samantha 38 G, an Internet model who I became friends with on Flickr and when I heard she’d be in a Manuel Ferrara video, I said to myself “Wow!” and another member said the downside of Raw 5 was Charley Chase unconsciously sporting a booger in her nose, which is an absolute turn off and will spoil any video entirely). The ladies love Manuel Ferrara and even those who aren’t avid porn watchers are familiar with him. I don’t think I’m wrong when I say this, but it seems like Manuel has the total package as a man due to (what seems to me) his ability to be a gentleman, a bedroom monster and an absolute explorer of the female psyche (he gets psychological with them as he fucks them). I sincerely hope that (even though my constant porn viewing is over) there may become a possibility of Ashli Orion, Dana DeArmond, Francesca Le, Monica Santhiago and even his wife Dana Vespoli to star together in the next Raw. I won’t be reviewing much more adult videos (I know I’ve said this too many times in the past, but porn can easily suck a person back in, even if they’re a single man whose love for porn is potent like skunk spray), but I may wind up checking out Raw 2 very soon and reviewing it. Released in 2010, a year when the series grew larger and increased with four volumes, Raw 3 stars legendary starlets Asa Akira (an Asian beauty) and Bobbi Starr (the smarty pants white girl with a big juicy booty and overly-dramatic orgasms). Plus, there are underrated stars such as Lorelei Lee (a Doublemint twin for Adrianna Nicole) and Shana Spirit. The first is forever immaculate, but unlike it, the third series is more immaculate thanks to a lack of filler scenes and boredom (Lou Charmelle’s scene in the series debut was severely bland, but not enough to bring the rating down for the entire video).
The video starts off with Asa Akira’s scene, which lasted well over 60 minutes. The first 25 minutes deals with Asa Akira acting as if she’s making a video diary, riding throughout NYC and LA, masturbating under a see-through skirt in a restroom, showering, pouring lotion on her body, playing with her iPhone, prancing around buttnaked and dolling herself up. Not to mention, she masturbates several times before she even meets Manuel in a hotel room. This woman laughs a lot, she’s insanely orgasmic, comes a lot like there’s no tomorrow and talks shit like “Beat my pussy up!” There’s no anal for her. This is my very first time seeing Asa Akira in a sex scene and she is really someone to watch out for. I believe 2011 will be a great year for her, even considering her starring in a Mike Adriano video. The second scene is another scorching moment Lorelei Lee brings to the table (adding to her stable of miraculous scenes from Fuck Slaves 2, Fuck Slaves 3 and Rocco’s Power Slave). Now, no pun intended when I say this, but Lorelei is a cutie, but at times, she resembles a crack whore and if she ever was one, she’d be the best crack whore you’d ever lay eyes on! Manuel picks her up from a strip mall somewhere in California in a Bentley, she’s been shopping a lot and in one of her bags, you discover that she’s bought a season of HBO’s True Blood series on DVD. Parking in an underground alley, Lorelei gives Manuel a blowjob, she bends over and he checks out her ass, she masturbates and comes hard. Lorelei Lee comes tough as nails on chalkboard, every fucking time, screaming like a lamb in despair. In the hotel, Manuel fucks the living shit out of her, in her pussy and ass and, at one point, knocking over the hotel furniture. She turns pink and red while being fucked, screaming like hell and can easily wake a baby from her loud-ass orgasmic cries. Manuel slaps her in the face a lot, covers her mouth and chokes her super-hard at points, making her mascara drip from her face and looking as if she’s been abused. She takes a shower afterwards, washing come from her hair and discussing her love for anal fucking.
The second disc starts with Shana Spirit, wearing stockings up to her butt cheeks, laying in bed on her stomach at a Best Western hotel, awaiting Manuel to hit it. Manuel spreads her cheeks open, looking in her ass a lot, playing in her rectum while she masturbates her pussy. Manuel fucks her in the ass a lot, then her pussy. It starts out as a quiet scene, but Shana gets orgasmic towards the end. Shana Spirit is another to watch out for. It turns out to be the shortest scene in the video lasting for 51 minutes. Now, here’s another big event: Manuel Ferrara arrives on the set of a Jake Malone scene (I’m assuming a scene he shot for Fuck Slaves 5, which stars Bobbi Starr, Andy San Dimas-It’s a shame the quality of Jake Malone’s work has declined since the releases of Fuck Slaves 3 and Bitchcraft 6). Bobbi Starr, looking amazing as always, discusses her attraction to Fairuza Balk while her and Andy San Dimas (fine as Moscato) change in outfits for the scene, showing their buttocks a lot and Bobbi Starr plays with her big booty a lot, making it clap and spreading her ass. There’s lots of time focused on Jake Malone conversing with the women as they change in various outfits and there’s loads of butt shots. They discuss religion being forced into the psyches of children, how old they were when they lost their “innocence” (a la virginity), there’s a photo shoot and footage for the scene. Manuel disappears for a while. It isn’t until 45 minutes later when we exit from what looks like BTS footage for a Jake Malone video. Bobbi goes in a hotel room and, oooh weee! Her jeans peel off of her thick white ass, Manuel looks in her asshole and hairy cooch and it’s pleasurable. I had high hopes for this scene and those hopes became real. First of all, that overly-dramatic ass acting she does is nonexistent and that is what prevents her from being a great performer at times (though it worked in Fuck Slaves 2, because it was a portrayal of a rape scene). Manuel fucks her with delight and fucks her ass up. The sex isn’t energetic at first, but gets fast and rough towards the end. I’m thinking “NOW, you can be dramatic, Bobbi!” Shit… All in all, this is probably Bobbi Starr’s best scene next to her scene with Lorelei Lee Fuck Slaves 3 and especially her scene with Rocco in Rocco Ravishes L.A..
The extras on this DVD are a bit on the light side as there’s a photo gallery, cumshot recaps and filmographies, but there’s only six trailers (why not three more trailers added?). Fortunately, this 2-DVD set isn’t as light and janky as the extras in the Evil Anal 8 2-DVD set. Shot in anamorphic widescreen, the a/v quality is spectacular.
Of my ten years of recurring and extensive porn viewing (most notably from 2005 to 2010), this series is one of the best series ever created in porn history that consistently cranks out brilliance, volume after volume, along with series like Gapeman, Buttman’s Stretch Class, Furious Fuckers, Ass Everywhere and even Belladonna’s Dark Meat series. To ask a question like which one in the series is better would be a suitable question for those who are new to the series and/or obsessed with finding “the perfect video”. And with a series like this, the concept, undercurrent and sexuality is all the same. It just depends on the kind of women you enjoy (although Raw 4 seems like possibly the weakest in the series). With that said and even with my intense admiration for this series, I doubt if there would ever be one bad video in the series, unless it contained a crappy female cast. This time, Manuel did not take the women out to eat in restaurants and if he did, it was not shown on this video. While one spent 25 minutes playing with his camera, another went shopping at a strip mall and there’s BTS footage from a Jake Malone sex scene intertwined with his own sex scene. Fabulous enough. The only negatives in this installment is how slow Shana’s scene was and the overextended footage of Bobbi Starr, Andy San Dimas and the Latino guys at the set of Jake Malone’s scene for Fuck Slaves 5. The only negative about the series is when Manuel sits his camera on a dresser and it sits still for long lengths of time. Otherwise, his constant movement of the camera as he holds it amid fucking the women is fabulous (though I don’t care for his POV style, it works for a series like this). Here’s yet another adult video one can watch thoroughly without skipping scenes or doing a lot of fast-forwarding.
