A deluxe two-disc set, Manuel Ferrara’s Raw showcases a more intimate side of the French superman’s approach to porn. In five basic, one-on-one scenarios, Manuel takes us into his private (and a few public) places, using only his roving camera, his hypersexual imagination and his massive schlong. Keeping the videography simple and direct enables the viewer to really focus on these sexy ladies and the incandescent erotic energy they bring. Mixing POV and voyeur-style shooting, Manuel strips away all the fancy video work and phony setups, leaving nothing but real, nasty, unspoiled fucking ... pure and raw.
Manuel Ferrara foregoes sets and glamour-girl trappings for gritty reality porn. Each scene was shot in a hotel room — three in L.A., two in Paris — and all the women show up in street clothes and every-day makeup. There’s anal in each long scene and most of it is very hot.
The most interesting sequence is with sex animal Cecilia Vega, who masturbates in a taxi en route to the Eiffel Tower where she flashes her naked body in a crowd of clueless tourists. Back at the hotel she writhes in ecstasy as Manuel slams his huge cock into her gaping ass.
