Perhaps no one other than Ron Jeremy has had such an interesting and varied history within the porn world as Nick Manning. In the 1990s, Manning was one of the first male porn performers who was actually handsome when that attribute wasn’t really a requirement. Without getting less easy on the eyes, however, Manning in the intervening years has become an intriguing, conflicted, and often self-deprecating character.
It’s not something you expect when you are watching a “Barely Legal.” And can you think of any other porn star who has a catchphrase? Nick Manning invented “Dropping Loads.”
As all porn veterans must diversify or die, Manning is now part owner, spokesman, and vice president of ElectronicBling, a company that will pimp your phone.
“I was dropping off my video autobiography, “Dropping Loads: The Legend of Nick Manning” to my agent, and he says, ‘I want to introduce you to a guy who saved my life in a kayaking accident.’ I said, ‘OK.'”
“Things like that just happen to you all the time,” I observe.
“Yes they do, Gram,” Manning says.
That man was Dr. Brian Ruby, CEO of Electronic Bling. Manning says the company does “what McLaren and Saleen do for cars, except Electronic Bling does it for your iPhone and iPad.” Manning will also be the spokesmodel for the company.

Manning comment: Electronicbling.com is a perfect example of the type of company that I desire to lend my image to and to represent. In the dual role of spokesmodel and Vice President/General Manager I have the ability to impact the success of Electronicbling.com in a myriad of ways. One of my initial assignments will be to select a female model to shoot the advertising campaign with me. We are also discussing the possibility of an infomercial. I will tweet company developments @mrnickmanning.
