I am Manuel Ferrara, adult film star and hobbyist basket ball player AMA!
Was born in france in 1975. started porn in 1997 in Paris, France. Moved to LA in 2002, and won AVN male performer of the year 5 times. pic.twitter.com/g0a7SDnRJw
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
thank you all for coming tonight, i will try do this once a month. you can talk to me on twitter @manuelferrara good night
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?
thank you, i started a blog on tumbler which i really need to epdate btw
I thoroughly enjoy reading it and look forward to hearing more from you!
I'm a dude and I like you way better than James deen. That guy is a tool!
hahaha he's actually a nice kid. we all have different taste. thank you for the compliment
Anyways... Do you still roll jits?
i haven't lately but i really miss it
Where you really asked before James Deen to do the Farrah Abraham movie?
yes i was, im glad james did it
Manuel, Please, Julia Ann in RAW !!!
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"?
this was probably one of my top 5 favorite scenes ever, thanks to chris streams
You and James Deen get in a dick-measuring contest—who wins?
i do ;-) hahaha
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?
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
Any comments on the whole Duke Porn star Belle Knox situation?
Many pornstars seem to be annoyed by her on twitter.
people say she's smart others don't agree. i don't know her but what a great PR stunt. good for her
Hello Manuel! What is your favorite thing about Kayden?
she is flawless, her look, her intelligence but more than anything she is a good person
As I guy I can honestly say I enjoy watching you or Rocco or Mandingo "act".
what was your first time having sex like?
very short hahaha i think i was 2 inches away from penetrating the girl when i came
Everyone has to start somewhere
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.
nowadays i only play bball
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?
yes the first introduction is always hard for me
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?
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
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?
i always miss them, but this is where i live now. i visit often though
Who has been your favorite person to film with?
by far Kayden Kross
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.
Wow, She is pretty cute. In terms of co-workers where does Eva Angelina rank (she is freaking stunning)
she was always one of the top ones
With your skills, you've got the pick of the litter, man
So, Kayden says she has quit porn, cause of your jealousy? Will you ever quit porn for her?
did she say that? when?
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?
it means basket ball is my hobby. my day job is to have sex with women, lots of them
That's awesome, you're my closet hero ( I'd never admit to anyone irl that you are)
What do you do to last so long? It seems like you've come a long way from your comment about your 'first time'.
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
Do you ever try to recruit girls for porn?
no, i feel weird about it.
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?
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
How do explain your work to your children? How will you react if they grow up and want to do porn as well?
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
What attracts you sexually to a particular woman?
it can be so different from one woman to another
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
What do you like the must, the butt or the boobies?
it all depends on the girl. that's what i love women are all so different
What's the weirdest porno you've ever done?
anything i did next to steve holmes
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?
thank you. no we are not swingers plus when you work as much as i do no need to
What's in your diet that helps you "Cum Buckets"?
nothing in particular. i don't think it's related
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?
i will probably just retire in the old porn stars cementary. nah, i will keep on directing my movies.
Any big difference between the way American girls and the way French girls perform?
i really don't think so, there is good and bad ones in both
Was there anything in particular that made you want to start acting or was there just an opportunity and you capitalized on it?
like millions of others i was a big time porn fan jerking off 15 times day. i think i was meant to do it.
In that case who should I talk to, so I can end up on one of those couches. Lol
now agencies are the best way to start
Thoughts on Jada Fire? How was she to shoot with?
great woman, great fuck, always one of my favorite
Una pregunta en Español, Cuando te Casaras con tu amada kayden?
Bien por ustedes, y felicidades por su bebe.
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.
we are actually working on it :-) help us find a name for it
The Cumblast podcast.
I got nothing.
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.
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.
no i don't lol where did you read that?
Has it ever been weird having your ex-wife as your director sometimes?
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
What are your vices (besides lots of sex)?
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
How did you get started in the industry?
i did a casting in france. i wrote a blog on tumbler where you can get all the details of it if you want
porn? all the buttman, rocco's, christoph clark's, john leslie's... old school evil angel
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
i play at healthclub 360, great people there. let's just say i'm doing good. thank you
Will you ever work with Kristina Rose again?
she doesnt do guys anymore
How many time week you have sex for work now?
Omg how can you? Its crazy!
it's a good life
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?
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
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?
of course we do, so the less we know the better
What is the weirdest thing a fan has done for or to you?
tatooed my name on her chest
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.
thank you, yes both amazing girls
I don't know what to say to you, but... I'm so glad you're here! <3
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?
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...)
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?
no allergies for me
Whats the chances of getting Angie Everhart in one of your movies?
hahaha none, but her and her boyfriend are fans and really cool people
How many languages do you speak? How did you learn English so quickly?
3 french, english, spanish. use to be ok with italian and german but a lack of practice made me lose a lot
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?
its not like clocking in but after 17 years youre use to it and still happy to be there
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
to produce you need money. and no i can't get you a date with those girls but good try
What is one sex parody of an actual film/TV series you would love to direct and/or star in?
no parodies for me i leave that to axel braun and brazzers
Over the years Manuel has made it clear he dislikes porn parodies quite a bit.
that's for sure
What is your favorite dirty talk to say to a girl when you are having sex with her?
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
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.
all good ones thanks, maybe scarlet johanson would be a good one too, but so many of them really
Have you worked with Trinty Saint Claire, yet. If so is she as nice as her screen persona?
yes and she's a great performer and really cool chick
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.
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
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?
i always do better scenes with girls who are real. no phony sex, regardless on how she looks like
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?
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.
Thank you! I will definitely check out the museum. Big fan of Dali... I have Lincoln in Dalivision in my living room.
really cool stuff
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.
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.
How would a girl get your attention? before you were engaged/married..
just by talking to me
Is there any times that you say i'm not in mood for sex but you have to do it because is your job?
nope i couldn't do it if it was the case
What kind of girls did you date or just hook up with before you were in porn?
pretty much any kind of girl i could have sex with lol
What makes a woman a great fuck for you?
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
What is considered cheating for you in a relationship, considering you have sex for a living?
anything i would lie about or hide.
how many pornos do you shoot in a typical day? Like do you have to cum for five (or more) different scenes?
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
Hi Manuel , have you ever cheated on someone?
yes i did
Do you remember this girl Toni Sweets? You had her in one of your movies, Phat Bottom Girls?
Man, her body was insane!
yes super hot
What are your thoughts on the Prop B condom legislation and its effect on Los Angeles area adult industry?
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
How can someone stay mentally stimulated/challenged as a porn actor/actress?
you change parteners every day, what is not stimulating about that? also your sexually changes through the years
when you are in a relationship with someone how do they fell about you doing porn ?
it can go so many different ways. i'm lucky now to be with someone who really understand me.
have you had any bad experiences making porn ?
of course not everything always goes according to the plan, but overal such a great business to be in
Are there any girls you haven't had a chance to work with as of yet and you want to? Who are they?
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)
As-tu deja visiter le canada? en partie le quebec? Y tourner serait bien non?
non, mais c'est dans mes plans.
Je t'aime, Manuel!!! What's one thing you think the adult film industry is missing right now?
merci ;-) good male performers
With the exception of Kayden, do you have a favorite (or 2) Raw scene?
wow, so many good scenes. the concept itself makes it good pretty much with all of them
Hello Manuel. I'm a fan of you and Kayden :) What was the last movie you've done together?
it was for my serie raw
Have you ever found yourself having any off screen hookups bc the passion was undeniable when the cameras were rolling?
yes of course, best example with kayden kross
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?
i have a lot of favorite movies. i'm a big fan of jean pierre jeunet (amelie, delicatessen...) but also love corean movie like " i saw the devil", "old boy"... and other genre
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.
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
that's pretty awesome, and congrats!
Good day! I was wondering if you are involved in any independent film that is not porno?
there is a great movie called "starlet" you can watch it on netflix
What is your favorite part about being a new father? Any interesting challenges and/or joys?
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
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?
