Do you remember that scene you did with Kristina Rose? Where at the end where you proceeded to flush her head down the toilet while giving her anal penatration. My question is... what was going through your head when flushing her head down a toilet?

TheRealManuelFerrara67 karma

fuck! i don't know man. those things happen on the moment, it wasn't planed, it was there. we always had great chemistry and would push each others limits

TheRealManuelFerrara49 karma

thank you all for coming tonight, i will try do this once a month. you can talk to me on twitter @manuelferrara good night

Lilspumone44 karma

I love you because you know how to love women perfectly. Women are all so different, but it seems you are in tune with each individual when you perform and know how to please her while getting pleasure yourself. I wish you would write a book of all you know about sex, so that we could teach our men, lol. Seriously...have you ever considered it?

TheRealManuelFerrara27 karma

thank you, i started a blog on tumbler which i really need to epdate btw

Lilspumone9 karma

I thoroughly enjoy reading it and look forward to hearing more from you!

TheRealManuelFerrara9 karma

thank you

jonny_nutsack32 karma

TheRealManuelFerrara50 karma

Where you really asked before James Deen to do the Farrah Abraham movie?

TheRealManuelFerrara67 karma

jorem25 karma

Manuel, Please, Julia Ann in RAW !!!

TheRealManuelFerrara21 karma

good idea

mypornoaccount27725 karma

How did that cop-themed oiled up 5-way scene feel - in particular the bit where they surrounded your head with their asses? Fun, or "I might suffocate here"?

TheRealManuelFerrara35 karma

this was probably one of my top 5 favorite scenes ever, thanks to chris streams

r_antrobus22 karma

You and James Deen get in a dick-measuring contest—who wins?

TheRealManuelFerrara61 karma

wantsumfuc20 karma

Out of the stars that you know personally, how many of them are married or have significant others? And how would you or someone bring that up to someone the first time you meet them?

TheRealManuelFerrara87 karma

i dont't know how many exactly but a lot. it's never easy bringing that up on a first date. what i can tell you is once i was on a date with a non porn girl who didn't know i was in porn and a fan came to ask me an autograph saying how much he likes evil anal

labortooth15 karma

evil anal

Manuel bloopers?

TheRealManuelFerrara27 karma


looperjoe20 karma

Any comments on the whole Duke Porn star Belle Knox situation?

Many pornstars seem to be annoyed by her on twitter.

TheRealManuelFerrara51 karma

people say she's smart others don't agree. i don't know her but what a great PR stunt. good for her

lisatorres6919 karma

Hello Manuel! What is your favorite thing about Kayden?

TheRealManuelFerrara52 karma

she is flawless, her look, her intelligence but more than anything she is a good person

jorem18 karma


TheRealManuelFerrara12 karma


pkanmag8 karma

As I guy I can honestly say I enjoy watching you or Rocco or Mandingo "act".

TheRealManuelFerrara9 karma


nafrojax17 karma

what was your first time having sex like?

TheRealManuelFerrara69 karma

very short hahaha i think i was 2 inches away from penetrating the girl when i came

wantsumfuc25 karma

Everyone has to start somewhere

TheRealManuelFerrara25 karma


hurrah_eros16 karma

What is your exercise routine like? I'm in awe of how long you seem to be able to jackhammer your costars hard without getting tired or finishing.

TheRealManuelFerrara30 karma

nowadays i only play bball

ChocolateBull16 karma

Do you still get nervous when you talk to an attractive woman for the first time/ do you have a type of woman that you're attracted to?

TheRealManuelFerrara40 karma

yes the first introduction is always hard for me

wantsumfuc14 karma

In your videos you make sex seem so intimate with whoever your fucking. How do you separate sex and making love when it come to your personal life? And have you experienced a girl faking it with you, off camera of course?

TheRealManuelFerrara43 karma

never a woman ever faked with me!!! hahaha yeah right i wish! it's not always easy to tell. i like to think that i'm good at what i do but it's not my place to say it. only the girl should. very easy to sperate both

cclmfca14 karma

I am sure you miss your friends/family in France. Do you plan on moving back there one day? Have you pondered possibly raising your kids on both continents?

TheRealManuelFerrara25 karma

i always miss them, but this is where i live now. i visit often though

Shadowhost14 karma

Who has been your favorite person to film with?

TheRealManuelFerrara40 karma

by far Kayden Kross

Farn13 karma

She's the one who did an AMA a while ago, mentioning you had a kid together, correct?

EDIT: Just checked, and yes she was.

TheRealManuelFerrara24 karma


Shadowhost9 karma

Wow, She is pretty cute. In terms of co-workers where does Eva Angelina rank (she is freaking stunning)

TheRealManuelFerrara19 karma

she was always one of the top ones

labortooth3 karma

With your skills, you've got the pick of the litter, man

TheRealManuelFerrara14 karma


UrbanPattinson13 karma

So, Kayden says she has quit porn, cause of your jealousy? Will you ever quit porn for her?

TheRealManuelFerrara24 karma

did she say that? when?

bigdaddy032913 karma

As a straight male I thank you for doing it right.

My question is, what's a hobbyist basketball player? And off that, do you have a day job?

TheRealManuelFerrara58 karma

it means basket ball is my hobby. my day job is to have sex with women, lots of them

bigdaddy032913 karma

That's awesome, you're my closet hero ( I'd never admit to anyone irl that you are)

TheRealManuelFerrara12 karma


HamSete12 karma

What do you do to last so long? It seems like you've come a long way from your comment about your 'first time'.

TheRealManuelFerrara29 karma

it's like working out, the more you do the better you get at it. i still have days where i'm more sensitive than others and really have a hard time holding it

benderser12 karma

Do you ever try to recruit girls for porn?

TheRealManuelFerrara37 karma

no, i feel weird about it.

looperjoe12 karma

Juding by your twitter you are a big UFC fan, have you ever been to any UFC events? Who are your favourite fighters? Any favourite fights?

TheRealManuelFerrara46 karma

huge UFC fan. favorite all time of course anderson silva. favorite fight... too many good ones, probably the one where dan henderson shut michael bisping's mouth

littleladylovelylo10 karma

How do explain your work to your children? How will you react if they grow up and want to do porn as well?

TheRealManuelFerrara25 karma

they are young so i have time before i have to. it will be hard parents always want better for their kids than what they have. porn brought o my life so many things i wouldn't have dreamed of when i was young. if you do it in an healthy way and are good in your head, why not

nafrojax10 karma

What attracts you sexually to a particular woman?

TheRealManuelFerrara17 karma

it can be so different from one woman to another

shadymm9 karma


TheRealManuelFerrara24 karma

it should be more open, but most directors, including me don't want to gamble on a new guy. i respect rocco siffredi for trying a lot of new guys, he took a chance with me and look at me now

Soniiacupcake9 karma

What do you like the must, the butt or the boobies?

TheRealManuelFerrara16 karma

it all depends on the girl. that's what i love women are all so different

Datgarchomptho8 karma

What's the weirdest porno you've ever done?

TheRealManuelFerrara25 karma

anything i did next to steve holmes

looperjoe8 karma

I think the best performers working today are Pierre Woodman, James Deen, Rocco Siffredi and you.

You are awesome. My question is, do you have sex with other girls off set besides your girlfriend Kayden Kross?

TheRealManuelFerrara20 karma

thank you. no we are not swingers plus when you work as much as i do no need to

bamballin7 karma

What's in your diet that helps you "Cum Buckets"?

TheRealManuelFerrara15 karma

nothing in particular. i don't think it's related

mrsgillock7 karma

Have you ever seriously considered retirement -- and if so, what do you envision your life to be like after porn? Wait a sec -- is there life after porn?

TheRealManuelFerrara17 karma

i will probably just retire in the old porn stars cementary. nah, i will keep on directing my movies.

RandomChick1237 karma

Any big difference between the way American girls and the way French girls perform?

TheRealManuelFerrara9 karma

i really don't think so, there is good and bad ones in both

wantsumfuc6 karma

Was there anything in particular that made you want to start acting or was there just an opportunity and you capitalized on it?

TheRealManuelFerrara22 karma

like millions of others i was a big time porn fan jerking off 15 times day. i think i was meant to do it.

wantsumfuc9 karma

In that case who should I talk to, so I can end up on one of those couches. Lol

TheRealManuelFerrara14 karma

now agencies are the best way to start

MainMan1236 karma

Thoughts on Jada Fire? How was she to shoot with?

TheRealManuelFerrara13 karma

great woman, great fuck, always one of my favorite

jorem6 karma

Una pregunta en Español, Cuando te Casaras con tu amada kayden?

TheRealManuelFerrara9 karma


jorem7 karma

Bien por ustedes, y felicidades por su bebe.

TheRealManuelFerrara5 karma

muchas gracias

erik26905 karma

Just wanted to say RAW is great. I know you are busy, but any chance of a podcast or something with you and Kayden? I remember it being mentioned a while back.

TheRealManuelFerrara11 karma

we are actually working on it :-) help us find a name for it



The Cumblast podcast.

I got nothing.

TheRealManuelFerrara7 karma


MyPenLeaksFire5 karma


TheRealManuelFerrara29 karma

porn is pretty fucking clean man. we get tested every 14 days. all the latest hiv cases were blown up by the media but those people go it outside of porn and were put in quarantine before anyone else got it.

more_pron5 karma

I read somewhere you have phimosis, what's that like and have you tried to correct it? I heard steroid creams can help fix it.

TheRealManuelFerrara20 karma

no i don't lol where did you read that?

CAJoekickass5 karma

Has it ever been weird having your ex-wife as your director sometimes?

TheRealManuelFerrara8 karma

we are very good friends and also a great director, it's an honor for me to be directed by anyone that has this much passion for porn, which is rare these days

tastone5 karma

What are your vices (besides lots of sex)?

TheRealManuelFerrara14 karma

i dont have any (cough cough) i have a very addictive personnality, i do everything i like with excess. so no drugs or alcohol for me but food and sport

slipperybooth5 karma

How did you get started in the industry?

TheRealManuelFerrara8 karma

i did a casting in france. i wrote a blog on tumbler where you can get all the details of it if you want

achirin005 karma

Favorite movie?

TheRealManuelFerrara8 karma

porn? all the buttman, rocco's, christoph clark's, john leslie's... old school evil angel

battierpeeler5 karma

where do you ball at? i'm a casual player at the LA fitnesses in LA area. you might have heard of me. (you definitely haven't heard of me)

do you have enough saved up to retire with no worries if you wanted to? (not asking for specifics. just wondering if you are saving or blowing through it)

thanks for being you and doing what you do.

bonus: this was cool https://twitter.com/manuelferrara/status/195386604087545856

TheRealManuelFerrara5 karma

i play at healthclub 360, great people there. let's just say i'm doing good. thank you

cclmfca4 karma

Will you ever work with Kristina Rose again?

TheRealManuelFerrara9 karma

she doesnt do guys anymore

Soniiacupcake4 karma

How many time week you have sex for work now?

TheRealManuelFerrara7 karma

every day

Soniiacupcake5 karma

Omg how can you? Its crazy!

TheRealManuelFerrara11 karma

it's a good life

rburkett26324 karma

Another question- Where do you think the industry is headed in the next couple of years. With all the issues of piracy which have been well publicized and measure B further inconveniencing production. do you see the industry leaving the valley/radically changing the way people consume porn?

TheRealManuelFerrara11 karma

it's very hard to tell right now, hopefully it will turn for the better. what i can tell you is dvd is seeing its last days and only the ones that adapt to the new technology will survive

blindado94 karma

Do you ever get jealous watching Kayden get nailed by another man? Does she ever get jealous watching you with other women? If not, how do you separate your relationship from the business of porn?

TheRealManuelFerrara13 karma

of course we do, so the less we know the better

wantsumfuc4 karma

What is the weirdest thing a fan has done for or to you?

TheRealManuelFerrara17 karma

tatooed my name on her chest

MainMan1233 karma

Btw Raw 6 is one of your best overall.

Do you enjoy working with Jynx Maze? Her anal skills are amazing.

Also, Valentina Nappi is cool.

TheRealManuelFerrara3 karma

thank you, yes both amazing girls

thisnewday3 karma

I don't know what to say to you, but... I'm so glad you're here! <3

TheRealManuelFerrara7 karma

you too

rburkett26323 karma

Hey Manuel, thanks for doing this AMA. I have always been curious since you've been in the industry for so long if there are any performers who surprised you. Did anyone come on set all shy and then turn out to be a sexual animal and vice versa? Is there anyone that sticks out in your mind?

TheRealManuelFerrara7 karma

yes it always happens which is very nice. yesterday i did a scene with a girl and she was allergic to prtty much everything which made the scene interesting and a little weird. ( couldnt use certain lube, or baby wipes...)

rburkett26322 karma

I guess I hadn't really thought of that. Are you allergic to anything yourself? I know some people can develop allergies over time. Are you ever concerned you'll become intolerant of some kinds of material?

TheRealManuelFerrara6 karma

no allergies for me

benderser3 karma

Whats the chances of getting Angie Everhart in one of your movies?

TheRealManuelFerrara6 karma

hahaha none, but her and her boyfriend are fans and really cool people

tastone3 karma

How many languages do you speak? How did you learn English so quickly?

TheRealManuelFerrara5 karma

3 french, english, spanish. use to be ok with italian and german but a lack of practice made me lose a lot

pointblankperiod3 karma

Good evening! Thanks for doing this!

When anticipating coming into work for the day or doing a scene do you feel particularly "aroused/excited" at the thought, before even getting there or getting started? or is just like getting ready to clock in, I.e.no pre-arousal?

TheRealManuelFerrara11 karma

its not like clocking in but after 17 years youre use to it and still happy to be there

CookieCrispWizard3 karma

Hello Mr. Ferrara, I have two questions. I am interested in the producing/directing fields, so..

1. How does one get started in the adult film industry in those two fields?

2 Is it possible that you can get me a date/ skype chat with Kennedy Leigh or Riley Reid? http://i.imgur.com/8CXMeHv.jpg

TheRealManuelFerrara17 karma

to produce you need money. and no i can't get you a date with those girls but good try

Ambassador_throwaway3 karma

What is one sex parody of an actual film/TV series you would love to direct and/or star in?

TheRealManuelFerrara13 karma

no parodies for me i leave that to axel braun and brazzers

erik26909 karma

Over the years Manuel has made it clear he dislikes porn parodies quite a bit.

TheRealManuelFerrara19 karma

that's for sure

Bromidy3 karma

What is your favorite dirty talk to say to a girl when you are having sex with her?

TheRealManuelFerrara25 karma

probably what a good little whore she is. the weird thing is i could never say that to a woman else where than while im fucking... ...or driving

xDIRTYDALEx3 karma

If there was ever a female movie star that crossed over into the adult film business, who would you want it to be so you could work with them? Personally, I'd love to see you doing girls like Keira Knightley, Kate Beckinsale and Milla Jovovich but of course that would never actually happen unfortunately.

TheRealManuelFerrara23 karma

all good ones thanks, maybe scarlet johanson would be a good one too, but so many of them really

guitarnoir3 karma

Have you worked with Trinty Saint Claire, yet. If so is she as nice as her screen persona?

TheRealManuelFerrara5 karma

yes and she's a great performer and really cool chick

looperjoe3 karma

How do you choose the girls for your RAW series? It seems like a lot of porn girls who request to be in the series on twitter are ignored.

LOVE the RAW series btw. Please do it more often.

TheRealManuelFerrara9 karma

well i can only book so many, but i always keep in mind the ones that answer. mostly i book them because i worked with them in the passed, or because they were recommanded by people in the industry or fans, and also the ones i jerked off to

pointblankperiod3 karma

What do you look for in a woman? However you feeling like answering;looks?, personality?, sexuality? etc. ... & do you think you do better scenes with the ones that are more your type?

TheRealManuelFerrara6 karma

i always do better scenes with girls who are real. no phony sex, regardless on how she looks like

Yuuuppp3 karma

Thanks for being here! My boyfriend and I thank you for broadening our sexual horizons. :) Love the RAW series! Keep up the good work.

What was your favorite thing to do as a kid? Also, when I go to Paris, what should I do... besides the typical touristy stuff?

TheRealManuelFerrara6 karma

thank you guys. i grew up doing judo, as a kid that was a real passion for me. there is so many good places and restaurants in paris it's hard to tell. the sacred heart neiborhood ( montmartre) is very nice, there is a tiny salvator dali museum there that i love.

Yuuuppp3 karma

Thank you! I will definitely check out the museum. Big fan of Dali... I have Lincoln in Dalivision in my living room.

TheRealManuelFerrara5 karma

really cool stuff

fortunato072 karma

Congrats to you and Kayden on your new addition. I'm a huge fan of Michelle Wild. I know she retired nearly 10 years ago but it appears you worked with her one time in "Euro Girls Never Say No" with Steve Holmes. I know it was many years and many a woman ago, but can you tell me anything about Michelle as a performer and a person? I can't get enough of this girl.

TheRealManuelFerrara4 karma

she was such a great person to meet. she was real and really enjoy fucking, which for eastern european girls is not always the case.

nafrojax2 karma

How would a girl get your attention? before you were engaged/married..

TheRealManuelFerrara7 karma

just by talking to me

filthy_dwarf2 karma

Is there any times that you say i'm not in mood for sex but you have to do it because is your job?

TheRealManuelFerrara3 karma

nope i couldn't do it if it was the case

nafrojax2 karma

What kind of girls did you date or just hook up with before you were in porn?

TheRealManuelFerrara10 karma

pretty much any kind of girl i could have sex with lol

nafrojax2 karma

What makes a woman a great fuck for you?

TheRealManuelFerrara11 karma

they just have to be real, i also love the contact, to be as close as possible to that person. sometimes it can't never be close enough

sardove12 karma

What is considered cheating for you in a relationship, considering you have sex for a living?

TheRealManuelFerrara11 karma

anything i would lie about or hide.

TheDorkKnight892 karma

how many pornos do you shoot in a typical day? Like do you have to cum for five (or more) different scenes?

TheRealManuelFerrara3 karma

i don't do multiple scenes in a day anymore. one scene a day is what i do, so they're all the best i can give. i use to do 2 sometimes 3 a day

xTrevelyan2 karma

Hi Manuel , have you ever cheated on someone?

TheRealManuelFerrara11 karma

yes i did

MainMan1232 karma

Do you remember this girl Toni Sweets? You had her in one of your movies, Phat Bottom Girls?

Man, her body was insane!

TheRealManuelFerrara4 karma

yes super hot

pfelon2 karma

What are your thoughts on the Prop B condom legislation and its effect on Los Angeles area adult industry?

TheRealManuelFerrara7 karma

i can't agree with anything that's forced upon people, that said i did my three first years in the industry condom only. this would not change anything for me

nafrojax1 karma

How can someone stay mentally stimulated/challenged as a porn actor/actress?

TheRealManuelFerrara1 karma

you change parteners every day, what is not stimulating about that? also your sexually changes through the years

tipsjt1 karma

when you are in a relationship with someone how do they fell about you doing porn ?

TheRealManuelFerrara4 karma

it can go so many different ways. i'm lucky now to be with someone who really understand me.

tipsjt1 karma

have you had any bad experiences making porn ?

TheRealManuelFerrara4 karma

of course not everything always goes according to the plan, but overal such a great business to be in

MainMan1231 karma

Are there any girls you haven't had a chance to work with as of yet and you want to? Who are they?

TheRealManuelFerrara3 karma

being a huge fan of porn, i wish i could bring back the ones i was fan of ( dragixa, julia chanel, dalila, tracy adams... so many others)

Soniiacupcake1 karma

As-tu deja visiter le canada? en partie le quebec? Y tourner serait bien non?

corneliusofdark1 karma

Just wondering what are your favorite movies (not porn-related) as of the moment?

And do you like comic books? Have you read Le Transperceneige a.k.a Snowpiercer by Jacques Lob?

TheRealManuelFerrara4 karma

NoCookies4U1 karma

What makes you feel alive, Manuel Ferrara? And I am not talking "Ohh I like to hang out with friends derp," I mean ALIVE, man!

I pick badass music and the rare fantastic story, usually involving people connecting at some meaningful level beyond the derp.

TheRealManuelFerrara5 karma

believe it or not, since i'm in a relationship with kayden kross i've never felt more alive and in tune with anyone else ever

NoCookies4U2 karma

that's pretty awesome, and congrats!

TheRealManuelFerrara2 karma

thank you

corneliusofdark1 karma

Good day! I was wondering if you are involved in any independent film that is not porno?

TheRealManuelFerrara5 karma

there is a great movie called "starlet" you can watch it on netflix

rheethink1 karma

What is your favorite part about being a new father? Any interesting challenges and/or joys?

TheRealManuelFerrara4 karma

how about loving a being more that you could love yourself? nothing better than this feeling, you come home and you forget about everything else in the world
