Manuel Ferrara was born to a Spanish mother and French father in Gagny, a French suburb outside of Paris. He is the youngest of three children and competed nationally in the Judo circuit from the time he was young until he entered college, where he studied physical education and began teaching Judo. During college, he also joined the military in the firefighter division. It was during this time that Manuel attended an adult casting call on a dare. He was promiscuous, popular with women, and a dedicated porn fan. His friends thought he would be perfect for the job. At the casting call, Manuel was chosen from among dozens of other contenders and, along with five other hopefuls, asked to perform in a scene on the spot. He was the only one of the five who could do the job. After that, he took regular calls for adult film jobs in the local French amateur circuit while he continued to finish his college coursework. His plan was to quit working in porn films once he graduated, but in the months leading up to his graduation, Manuel was discovered by Rocco Siffredi, who was then, and remains, the most successful male adult film star in the industry’s history. Rocco wanted to bring Manuel from amateur films to pro films. After some debate, Manuel shelved his plans in physical education and decided to jump full time into pursuing a career in porn. The same month he graduated college, Manuel flew to Prague for the first time to begin working as Rocco’s protégé. It was there that Rocco suggested the stage name “Ferrara,” because Manuel looked like a boxer named Stephane Ferrara. Manuel Ferrara’s name rose quickly and it wasn’t long before American companies heard of Manuel. In 2002, John Stagliano flew Manuel to Los Angeles to work on Fashionistas, a movie that would come to develop a cult following. The following year, Manuel won Best Foreign Male Performer at the AVN awards, and in the years since he’s taken home a total of 5 Best Male Performer awards from AVN, among dozens of others for his scene and directorial work. His style on camera has influenced the performances of a generation of performers who came after him, and he remains a favorite among female performers and porn viewers alike.

2.16. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
Practice makes perfect – it might take time to get used to the feel and functionality of the FleshPump, so please take time to read affiliated instruction manuals and allow yourself patience to experiment and see how FleshPump can work best with your body. Practice the technique of creating and maintaining your erection before attempting sexual intercourse with another person.
CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN OR MEDICAL CARE PROFESSIONAL IF ANY COMPLICATIONS OCCUR. DISCONTINUE USE OF THE FLESHPUMP IF ANY COMPLICATIONS PERSIST.
Interactive Life Forms, LLC (“ILF”) and its affiliates are dedicated to limiting the spread of diseases from sharing or using another person’s products. Once this product is opened, it is non-returnable.
The FleshPump is designed to assist men in obtaining an erection before intercourse.
The FleshPump is made from body-safe polycarbonate/TPE and is generally safe for personal body contact. Putting the FleshPump in contact with another person’s body and/or uids is not advised due to the possibility of spreading communicable diseases.
The following precautionary measures are advised when using the FleshPump:
The FleshPump may not be safe for men who do not feel pain on the penis and its surrounding area. As the FleshPump may cause sexual arousal with increased heart and respiration rates, persons should consult their physician or medical professional before using the FleshPump and/or if you su er from any of the following: heart or lung disease; high blood pressure; stroke, epilepsy or convulsive disorder; genital or urinary disorder (e.g. kidney, bladder, testicular or penile problems or issues); diabetes or if you take anti-coagulants, large quantities of aspirin or other blood thinners; if you have sickle cell disease, bleeding disorders or leukemia; or you have a history of prolonged erections.
It is possible that using the FleshPump may bruise or break blood vessels either immediately below the skin or deep within the penis shaft or scrotum. Internal bleeding, bruising or petechiae (small purplish spots on a body surface, such as the skin or mucous membrane, caused by a minute hemorrhage), hemorrhage or the formation of a hematoma (a localized swelling with blood that results from a break in a blood vessel) in the penis or scrotum may result.
Inferences or actions you may make or take based on the content found in this manual are made and/or taken at your own risk. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your physician or medical professional immediately and/or visit an emergency room or urgent care facility.
The information contained in this manual is not intended to be nor should be considered as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. You should speak with a physician or medical professional to advise and/or assess your personal medical condition. Only you and/or such physician or medical professional can assess the appropriateness of products intended for your personal use.
Vacuum therapy is easy to use. However, there are some risks associated with vacuum therapy. It is important that you understand these risks.
Do not use any electrically-powered vacuum pump in or near water. Severe bruising or damage to your penis may result if you do not wait at least 60 minutes between uses of the FleshPump.
If you use too much vacuum pressure, harm to your penis may result, including without limitation bruising or injury to your penis or scrotum. Apply only the minimum of vacuum pressure necessary to achieve an erection.
It is possible that vacuum therapy may cause a small blood blister on the head of your penis.
This is normal and should not be harmful.
Use of the FleshPump may aggravate pre-existing conditions such as priapism (a persistent, generally painful erection as a consequence of disease and not related to sexual arousal); Peyronie’s disease (the formation of hardened tissue in the penis that causes pain, curvature, and/or distortion, usually during an erection); and urethral strictures (an area of hardened tissue, which narrows the urethra sometimes making it difficult to urinate).
Use of the FleshPump may mask an underlying cause of your impotence. These causes may include: diabetes, multiple sclerosis, chronic kidney failure, cirrhosis of the liver, or alcoholism. You should talk to your physician or medical professional before using this product.
