Male Performer of The Year 2009 Manuel Ferrara
Okay, unlike females, there are only a handful of males in porn worthy of consideration for the top male spot of the year. Some critics or fans use cock size or race as their sole criteria for selection while others choose based on a handful of select performances in big name movies or even acting abilities in features of sitcum parodies. Here at Xcritic, we go a step further by combining all sorts of factors and then going the extra mile by consulting with industry insiders that work with the men to arrive at the best overall performer. In 2009, the choice was more clear-cut than usual as Manuel Ferrara took the top spot from guys like Erik Everhard, Evan Stone, James Deen, Lexington Steele, and a few others.
Manuel is not only a competent director, making some of the best fuck flicks of the year with Raw 2, but also has all the prerequisites to earn the top spot from his peers with his large cock, boyish sense of charm, seductive abilities, and the ease at which he puts his female playmates in such a variety of situations. As pointed out during the recent 2010 AEE porn convention by publisher Chris Thorne, Manuel is also the most requested male talent in porn, all the big companies having him on speed dial for those precious few days each month when the guy is not already booked up. Our reviewing staff routinely points out (as they have for years) that Manuel brings out the best in the ladies in virtually every scene he is in, the chemistry enhanced and the small screen sizzling as a result of the pairing but he also shows a keen sense of humor in his own flicks not to mention the times he is given a chance by others to show his acting chops, elevating his stature beyond his peers that work strictly in gonzo with non-speaking roles.
One popular contract starlet came forth and suggested that you can compare guys in porn with cars, some of them meriting Yugo status (broken down on the side of the road Yugo status at that!) while Manuel is like a finely tuned Ferrari that handles like a dream, the man even able to get women to do their "first" anal scenes with him despite his hefty package. In all of this though, Manuel has always proven to be a gentleman that caters his experience to what his ladies want, giving them the romantic loving they desire when needed but ready to give them a rough and tumble experience as called for, the guy able to get into all forms of sexual contact as asked for from a straightforward scene to a hair-pulling, throat grabbing slam fest where he exhausts both parties until they orgasm repeatedly unlike what most of us expect from the majority of his peers.
So, whether you're new to performing in the industry and are looking for the most ultra-plus experience or if you're just one of the millions of observers that only care about the men when you are expecting them to deliver the goods anonymously, Manuel Ferrara is the premium ride that gets the best action out of his ladies, one that can act when called for but isn't prone to issues with his wood. Here are a few of Manuel's most recent titles, a few of them readily standing out from the pack given his many hundreds of scenes over the years: Raw 2, Kristina Rose is Slutwoman, Phat Bottom Girls 2, Battle of the Sluts 3, Evalutionary, Evil Anal 10, and Slutty and Sluttier 10.
