From the very first shot - a closeup of ample ass cheeks
being parted to reveal a buried butt-plug - you know you're
dealing with a unique pornographic imagination.
There are three coupling scenes, plus one on DVD-only, and each proceeds at a measured pace. For Buttman, sensuality can't be rushed. Encounters take on epic proportions because he the time to fully explore his obsessions.
Stagliano's camera eye is always close to the action. No pornographer conveys physicality more intensely. He zeroes in for tight close-ups of erect nipples being twisted, butt cheeks being squeezed, asses being plugged or spanked. His ECUs of open pussies somehow look deeper, pinker, juicier, than those of anyone else.
Katia Kassin, the robust German girl, gets the full treatment in her tease and masturbation scene, and she relishes it, especially the glass butt plug that suctions in and out of her anus.
Buttman introduces Kata Hilton to Manuel Ferrara. She's a beaming Hungarian brunette whose tits pop up beneath her sweater. Their mostly anal scene is like a duel between sex machines. Kata is an Amazon, highly responsive, but unfazed by Ferrara's often-rough ways. This unusual sexual challenge turns him on to the max. He doesn't just cum, he shoots a jet clear across the room. (A surefire Pre-nom for Best Cumshot if there were such a category.) "My God, John, thank you!" he gasps.
In Berlin, Buttman meets Emilia, a hard-edged but full-bodied Finnish blonde. She has big tits that squirt milk on his lens and an even bigger round butt. She's no spring chicken, but energy trumps youth here. Zenza Raggi sticks his nose in her ass, then spanks her, turning her cheeks bright red. In reverse cowgirl, her rolls of tummy flesh jiggle. The anal is followed by a tit fuck.
Katja Kassin returns for a match with Ferrara. But first she slaps Buttman's face - hard - and sits on it. "Bad boy! You like ass, you get some ass!" He seems to enjoy it. Manuel treats her to everything on his menu: ass-eating, butt-smacking, face-fucking, throat-gagging, labia pinching, climaxing with a slow, deep anal entry. He shoots another geyser, but into her mouth. She drools the excess on the camera lens, then licks it off.
The DVD bonus scene comes from Brazil, with an apology: Stagliano's camera masters were slightly damaged by the Rio heat but he wanted to put it out there anyway. Good decision. Some digital breakups are an acceptable tradeoff for the heat of lithe, tawny Gabriella doing heavy-duty anal with a big-dicked Brazilian dude. As usual, Tricia Devereaux merits praise for her savvy DVD production.
