Some pornographic art is so blatant I actually find it hard to look at. Manning's illustrations are exquisite, detailed mazes of limbs and chains. His pictures need to be decoded to figure out who is doing what to whom which forces me to get past any embarrassment I might feel and enjoy his painstaking devotion to detail. I am especially fond of his tattoos and designs, probably some of the best I've ever seen.
