Manara has always been acutely aware of social and technological developments, and of their influence on how they interact with people’s erotic fantasies. By the late 1990s sex had started to go online in a big way as the internet made it possible to visit chatrooms and experience virtual intimate encounters. Never one to miss a good erotic storyline, in www Manara explores paid-for online sex and the limits of exploitation and sexual humiliation it can encourage. From the standpoint of two decades later many of the issues it raises are all too pertinent.

www was published by NMB/Eurotica, and has long been out of print. We have included the first 16 of its 48 pages, as far as Wanda’s public humiliation by the highly dangerous and enigmatic Vlad. You will be glad to hear that eventually there is appropriate payback.
