Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame and was generally a bit below average for recent Buttman releases. This is due primarily to the source material (the show is over 4 years old and in porn terms, that's a long time) but it was never terrible. Some grain and lighting issues were the main problem but that is partly by design since it lends an air of spontaneity to the movie too. The audio was clear.
Body of Review: Buttman is the nickname of John Stagliano, ass lover extraordinaire and head of the top notch Evil Angel company. Over the years, his vision of porn has elevated the industry from some of the lousy techniques that were employed in the 80's when the video boom took over, to a highly copied form of gonzo production. Whereas some companies have focused on higher end production values, using better lighting and camera angles, Buttman has centered his efforts more on the actual heat and entertainment aspects of porn. Depending on what your tastes are, you'll probably like his approach a lot if you're into anal sex. In Buttman's Intimate Exposure, John takes the crew on a journey of exploration using a number of European regulars (from the cast list, you'd recognize many of them as having starred in movies by Private Pictures). There are no condoms being used and here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: Laura, a Buttman regular with a kicking body and an appetite for pleasing men, Frank, David, and Leslie, all had a scene inside on a couch. She did the oral, pussy, and anal with DP very energetically and it's hard to deny her appeal in hardcore scenes. Even her minor blemishes didn't detract from the heat here as she performed like a champ. Her ass was so appealing to John that he even gave her a bit of rimming before the guys went to work.
Scene Two: Julia and Lola, two gals with hot bodies themselves, and Christoph, had a scene that started in a small gym. The picture was pretty weak there so I was thankful when the tease footage ended (I love the tease footage) and they all took the show to the hotel room. The sex included lots of what you'd expect and the scene was very warm with plenty of energy to spare. Is it any wonder that Private hired Julia so many times after this was initially released?
Scene Three: Krisztina, not my favorite here but a very skilled gal in porn that knows how to please, Frank and David, had a scene on a back lawn on a blanket. Now this is the kind of picnic I'd like to have! Oral, straight, anal, DP and lots of fun besides. Not as extreme as some companies have these days but other than the gape, I really liked it.
Summary: If you like ass play and worship, along with very skilled gals who seem to enjoy it, you'd be missing out to skip the Buttman series of films. While they do have some technical limitations, mostly in terms of lighting and grain, they are a lot of fun to watch and have great replay value. In essence, the term "fuck for your buck" is very important considering the cost of the series. In short, this was one I can Highly Recommend.
