Running Time: 117 min.

Production Date: 9 / 15 / 1993

Director: Patrick Collins and Parker Schurman

Cast: Angela, Bionca, Debi Diamond, Eva, Kitty Yung, Lara Lambkin, Tiffany Mynx, Alex Sanders, John Stagliano, Mike Deni, Rick, Randy “Leatherface” West, and Brockton O’Toole and Patrick Collins (listed here as Roscoe Bowltree) in non-sex roles

Initial Expectations: I’ve heard mixed things about the Sodomania series, but John Stagliano is enough to give me hope for almost any feature.

Initial Reaction: It’s a well done vignette feature that has some extremely hot sex, as well as one that lacks.

Who Should Watch It : Fans of anal sex and vignette style porn

Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants to clearly see all the action

Audio /Video Quality: Sodomania 5 is was made almost ten years ago now, and hasn’t aged well, especially if you compare it to how Dick Clark’s aged in that time. The technical aspects aren’t even quite up to average VHS levels here, especially for the video. The video is extremely grainy, and at times I couldn’t even tell what holes were being plugged. The lighting is okay, but with this kind of grain I’m not sure if you could see the shadows or not. As usual with Elegant Angel’s releases, the picture isn’t clear out to the edge and there’s a discolored band along all the edges.

Music: There’s a little music that rests nicely in the background for the most part, but there are a few places where it’s the only audio in the scene. The music also doesn’t appear in every scene, or isn’t there for the full scene.

Menus: The main menu is fairly plain, but does have a little clip from the feature that in the same style as many of Elegant Angel’s other main menus. The chapter menu is pretty standard, offering a small clip from the scene to help you choose.

The Feature: Sodomania is a long running vignette series that often features different directors, but as far as I know has always been hosted by Brockton O’Toole, who introduces each scene. The only thing that ties the scenes together is they all contain anal sex. The vignettes are also treated as mini-movies, with the stars and director given for each scene, which gives the feeling that Elegant Angel cares quite a bit about Sodomania and the people who watch it.

Lara Lambkin, an average looking brunette with a very nice body, Angela, a blonde with a nicely natural body, and Rick, an older guy who looks like he should be due for AARP membership any day now, start things out in The Bookworm, directed by Patrick Collins. The girls tease each other a bit on an open stairwell before heading down the street to a bookstore. They head in separately so as to not arouse suspicion, and masturbate for each other fairly vocally for each other in the loft above the storekeeper, who appears to be wondering what’s taking them so long up there. They work each other over with tongues and toys, but are soon interrupted by Rick, who threatens to call the police after watching them a little. He resists a bit while the girls undress him, but finally submits to their will when they start sucking his cock. After getting Rick warmed up, the girls take turns watching as Rick fucks their partner while masturbating a little. Lara finishes things off nicely by fingering her pussy vigorously while Angela runs a silver dildo in and out of her ass and directs Rick’s jerk-off juice onto Lara’s gaping asshole. It’s an okay scene that has a fun feel, but it’s held back quite a bit by the technical aspects. The ending also gives the entire scene a very fun finish by Rick going to the phone, and when the girls ask if he’s calling the police after they’ve given him some hush-honey, he tells them he’s calling the paramedics instead.

In Maid for Each Other, directed by Parker Schurman, Kitty Yung does what she can to satisfy the desires of her mistress Tiffany Mynx. Tiffany has Kitty clean a spot off her skirt, and then spanks her ass and has Kitty polish her shoes with her wet panties. Tiffany starts working Kitty over with her feet, and plays with Kitty’s pussy while having Kitty suck her toes after having Kitty remove her stockings. Kitty is instructed to draw her mistress a bath next, and washes her all over before drying her off. Later, Tiffany slides the handle of a feather duster into Kitty’s ass and has her dust one of her rooms before blindfolding her and leaving her bent over a table, still holding the duster, until Tiffany returns. Tiffany leaves to find gardener Randy West, and after sucking his cock and teasing him, brings him back to fuck Kitty. Tiffany works Kitty over a bit more while Randy watches and strokes himself and then has Kitty start to lick Randy’s balls. Tiffany finally rewards Kitty by letting Randy fuck each of her holes as she has Kitty lick her pussy. The great thing about being in control is that you control things, so Tiffany gets to have her ass fucked as Kitty eats her pussy. Randy ends things with a nice ball blast on Tiffany’s great ass, which Kitty licks off as it drips down onto Tiffany’s pussy. This is a great scene and one of the hottest I’ve seen in a long time. The last scene I remember this hot was in Joey Silvera’s Let’s Get Fucked Please!. Tiffany does a great job of driving the scene as the dom, while Kitty plays the sub to near perfection. They do a great job of building the heat fairly quickly, and keep it going throughout the entire scene. You might want to break out a clean change of underwear before watching this scene.

In One for the Money, directed by Patrick Collins and starring Eva, an average looking brunette with a great body, who starts out giving Mike Deni a dance. She strips down for him and then puts on a show with a dildo before sucking Mike’s cock. He returns the favor by using both hands to work over her pussy before climbing on for a ride that Montana sheep know only too well. They move into the customary reverse cowgirl before Eva takes Mike’s spooge stream on her face. I’d like to say that this was one of those short but sweet scenes, but I don’t really think it was either. It clocked in at about fifteen minutes, but the scene seemed kind of by the numbers and had me wondering where my remote was a few times. On the plus side, if you enjoy this scene with a good beer, you’ll have more time to spend with your beer, even though I can’t say that it did for me.

Finally, John “Buttman” Stagliano tries to help out Patrick Collins in Buttman Comes First. Patrick calls Buttman on the phone to get him to help out with Sodomania 5. Luckily Debi Diamond and Bionca are at Buttman’s house. The only problem that John can see is that Debi’s getting too skinny and doesn’t have a big enough butt, so he brings them out some chocolate cake. Debi eats a little, but the girls have more fun spreading it on Debi and letting Bionca eat it off. John gets the garden hose to clean the girls up, and Debi responds by showing that she can take a blast almost anywhere. John lends the girls his tongue to help work them over, and Bionca breaks out some fruit to put all over Debi as well. The girls continue to work each other over, and after watching them while jerking off, John comes over to help the girls out. He’s a little too close, however, so instead of fucking either of them he gives Debi’s fruit a creamy topping that both of the girls eat. When John goes away, the girls get back to work with a little oil and a lot of fingers. Bionca gets eight of her fingers into Debi’s pussy as well as her thumb in Debi’s ass before working Debi’s ass up to three fingers followed by a little dildo action for each of her holes. Debi and Bionca catch gardener Alex Sanders watching them, and come out to punish him with a little ass licking and by making him have sex with them, which males me wonder how to find where Bionca and Debi like to hang out. Alex fucks both Bionca and Debi, but only fucks Bionca’s ass. Alex finishes things by shooting his cum gun all over Debi’s face, and Bionca coming up to share some of the fruits of Alex’s labor. This is a great scene to end things with. It has John Stagliano’s customary Buttman gonzo style, and starts off as a great parody of Buttman with Patrick Collins making fun of John. It nicely moves back to the standard gonzo style to finish things up. It makes for a nice blend of styles, and a great scene to finish the feature with.

If this is a typical Sodomania, sign me up. The sex is nicely varied while still keeping a little anal in each scene, and they all have some decent chemistry as well. The second scene with Tiffany Mynx, Kitty Yung, and Randy West is easily the best of the bunch here, but the final scene with John “Buttman” Stagliano isn’t too far behind. The biggest problems with Sodomania 5 is the technical aspects make it very hard to watch at times since there’s so much grain. It’s too bad, since some people might turn off the feature before getting to some of the great stuff inside.

Extras: Trailers are included for Sugarwalls 30, Wet’n Wylde Weekend 2, Hardcore Innocence 2, Just Jill, and Filthy First Timers 28. The standard web links are also included, and as usual with Elegant Angel’s recent releases, several photo galleries are included. There’s both hardcore and softcore galleries, but unlike many other galleries, the photos come from the entire library of Elegant Angel photos. I’m not really a fan of this type of photo gallery, but I will give Elegant Angel a lot of credit for identifying which feature almost every photo does come from. It’s a great touch that lets the viewer possibly find another feature they might enjoy. There’s also a very long animated photo gallery from Patrick Collins’ trip to Europe, which has a nice selection of girls that look great, as well as being nicely organized and identified. Finally, there’s William H. Nutsack’s Twisted Pics, which is a completely subjective photo gallery as Mr. Nutsack has a lot of fun with the photos in a way that will be to some people’s liking and turn off others.

The most unique extra, however, is the bonus scene of Behind the Scenes at Elegant Angel plus The Virginal Deflowering of Pearson Butts. After a small intro by a “janitor”, it moves quickly into the deflowering of another winner from the Elegant Angel website, starting with BellaDonna and Monica Mayhem giving the lucky winner a strip show. Alexandra Quinn comes out, gives a short tease, and then drops down to start sucking his Ed Powers sized mini-cock. As soon as Alexandra starts to slide her pussy over his cock he blows his wad. Alexandra goes back a little later for more, and he lasts much better the second time. It’s not a great scene with the exception of Alexandra Quinn, since the guy is kind of dazed. Alexandra comes across as very real and like she’s have a lot of fun with the entire thing, which makes the scene fun to watch. The behind the scenes footage is quite a bit of fun, and includes the Jordan brothers, Dion Giarrusso, a great duet between Kelsey (formerly Kelsey Heart) and a balladeer, some of the other girls, and Patrick Collins and Jewel and Kitty Marie. It’s a fun look behind the scenes at Elegant Angel that never takes itself too seriously. It also makes for a very nice extra, which is an area Elegant Angel suffered in for quite a long time.

Themes: Straight, masturbation, lesbian, toys, voyeurism, group, anal, B&D, toe-ing, rimming (female > female, male > female, and female > male), food fun, and swallowing

Raincoat Factor: Very high

Overall: Currently, Sodomania 5 can be found online for between $18 and $23 with several stores offering it for under $20. Rent this one first before you shell out the big bucks, even if you’ve seen the feature before on VHS. The transfer pretty much sucks here and I think a lot of people are going to be turned off on that alone, and might not give the actual feature a chance. It’s too bad, since the second scene alone is worth the price. There’s also some nice extras here, although you might have seen them on other Elegant Angel releases.

Note to Elegant Angel: It’s great that you’re bringing out your older releases on DVD, but it’d be a lot better if they were easier to watch. I also like that you’ve been able to keep your prices down for retailers to sell them cheaper, but I’m sure most people would be more than willing to shell out a few more bucks to actually see the feature. You’ve made a lot of advances in your extras over the last year or so, now that you’ve learned about that, please turn a little attention towards the transfer.
