Review by John Woole, November 16, 2018

Summary

Offical website of the big dick legend. Gonzo hardcore with porn stars, with lots of anal, deep throating and ass to mouth. Now in 4K.

Pros

  • Nice library, lots of long scenes
  • First class gonzo hardcore with A-list porn stars
  • Great quality, over 100 scenes in 4K UHD, the rest 1080P Full HD
  • Full access to Jules Jordan

Cons

  • Most new scenes come in 4K, but not all
  • The older scenes were previously available on JulesJordan too
  • Online pic viewer needs to be improved (top of the pic cut off, can't choose resolution)
  • On mobile only the lower video resolutions are offered (workaround in the review)

Manuel Ferrara is a French legend. His big dick has been inside hundreds of porn stars, and he has won many porn industry awards. Manuel started as a peformer, but he started directing as well later on.

This is a gonzo porn site. Gonzo flicks are all-action hardcore porn flicks without a storyline. The girl appears in skimpy clothes, maybe dances for the camera a bit. Then it's all hard sucking and fucking.

The new official website is run by the professional crew of JulesJordan, and it includes 4K UHD quality movies. Joining Manuel Ferrara also gives access to the Jules Jordan paysite. That's great news for the fans of the genre—it is one of the highest rated gonzo sites on x3guide.

I was happy to see that new Manuel Ferrara opened with a big library. Everything is available in at least 1080P Full HD quality. The oldest scenes are Full HD scenes from 2010. The new updates are from new flicks, mostly available in 4K UHD too.
I should mention that these scenes are also available on DVD/Bluray/VOD, usually released a few months before the website debut. It doesn't matter to most of us who stopped buying physical discs long ago. That said, it's nice that you can also browse the scenes grouped by the retail movie's title. Just click the 'Movies' menu in the members area.

The movies look amazing. The 4K ones are gorgeous, but the Full HD scenes are super sharp and beautiful too. Only a small number of the oldest movies are not as sharp, but even those are pretty decent quality. All of the porn here is top notch, with great camera work and great action. As I said this is gonzo porn, there are no stories, except for a few scenes.

Manuel Ferrara is a passionate, hard lover. He definitely dominates the girls, fucks them hard, and wants them to do all kinds of dirty stuff. But he's also great at turning on the girls. He kisses them, licks their pussies, and drives them wild by being gentle and hard at the same time. He doesn't humiliate them, but he's a dominant lover.

The girls are happy to do all kinds of kinky acts with Manuel. There are sloppy blowjobs, deep throating, anal, ass to mouth, ass licking (both ways), cumming into the mouth, cum in the pussy, and cum in the ass.

The library is full of hot popular porn stars from the US. They have Riley Reid, Kissa Sins, Alexis Texas, Abella Danger, Jill Kassidy, Megan Rain, Keisha Grey, Jillian Janson, Jada Stevens, just to name a few. There's also new talent, young sexy girls who've recently turned 18 and are just starting out in porn.
As for the male lead, pretty much all movies have Manuel starring. There are about 30 threesome scenes, mainly MMF (two guys one girl). Many of those have double penetration, and three of them have double anal even.

I've discussed the videos so far, they are the main thing here. Each update has a photo gallery as well though. The content varies, some photo galleries are short solo posing with nudes. Most of them have hardcore sex to though, and a good amount ot pics. The photos are generally sharp and great looking. Most galleries are available in up to 1600px. A nice resolution for most people, but they should add a higher option for the real photo fans with big screens. The pics can be both viewed online, and the complete galleries can be downloaded in ZIP files. I recommend the ZIP option, as their online photo viewer is not perfect.

The members area is pretty standard. There is nothing special about it, but it works well and has all the important features. You can download all movies as well as watch them online, in various resolutions. I got nice download speeds. The streaming player plays the movies smoothly too. If you choose the highest streaming quality, fast forwarding may take 1-2 secs, then it will play smoothly. Fast forwarding is faster on some sites, but it's not too bad here either.
You can browse the library by scenes, movies (scenes grouped by the retail disc's title), and porn stars. The sorting options are by date, by popularity, and by name. There is also a text search function and an advanced search page. You can find them by clicking the magnifying glass icon at the top. The advanced search page is useful, as it has a full list of categories/keywords that you can search by.

I also tested the site on my mobile phone. The site is easy to browse, and the video playback and downloads work well. The pics viewer also has a small usability issue like on the computers, but you can also opt for the ZIP downloads.
I should mention that on mobile they only offer the two smallest video resolutions. They look good and they'll be good for most people. Still, website operators need to understand that many people now want the highest possible quality on mobile too. Of course there is an easy workaround: in Chrome Mobile's menu you can toggle "Desktop site". Some links will be smaller, but you'll get to choose from all quality options. One more thing that's missing in mobile mode is the link to the advanced search page.

The updates come on random days, but you can expect 2 new scenes every week on average. Each scene includes a movie, a real photo set, and screen caps from the movie.

My conclusion is that ManuelFerrara is a solid site. The design and the interface could be more polished, but the core is strong. A big library of world class gonzo hardcore, great quality, and regular updates.
If you've been a member of Jules Jordan before, most of the older content here should be familiar. The new updates are brand new pornos though. You don't have to choose between Jules Jordan and Manuel Ferrara, as the two websites give full access to each other. The discounted price is a good deal in my opinion, and you can even pay by PayPal through Epoch.
