opens with this really wonderful song )Rage was a musician). The song is great, but hold on, the video opens with someone reaching his hands into his ass and pulling out a greasy piece of paper. This is art. I mean, this is porn at its best. Once the greasy paper is open, there we see the typewritten credits for the film. This is simple genius.
You're in for a treat.
I won't even try to tell you who's who, but it opens with a blonde playing with his hole on a sofa. He inserts a dildo. And I love the music. In the background you can hear horns blowing, and that's real. I love it. Next thing you know, Blondie is sucking this really handsome man. I love the feel and energy of these older videos. The scene goes back to the dildo insertion. And who out there doesn't love a toy? Every home should have a few. This DVD is just great. The feel the grit of it is superb. The close-ups on Blondie's hole winking is hot and [he] starts pushing love beads in his ass and it's, like, wow. Next we see Blondie sucking the same guy. I love the silence. All you can hear are the two of them, and that's hot. Blondie talks to the camera.
The scene switches, and a lubed fist appears and plunges in to a hole, wrist deep. The background music is amazing. Actually, it's perfect for fisting. The fist in this scene is punched back in. The fistee sits calmly, taking it in. Next Blondie is sucking again. C'mon Blondie, put some snap in it. You can get him off again, can't you? It's not like it's a huge cock ... oops, my bad, there I go talking to the TV again. Rage breaks from that scene, and we're honored to see Bosch Wagner for the first time. He's so hot to me. He sucks a cock like his very life depends on it. He's thin, he's tall, he's lean, he has that wonderful moustache, he's beautiful to look at and he has those damn thin thighs that make me weak. His mouth under that moustache is all sloppy and spit is stringy and is there a better blowjob? I think not. He offers his ass to the top and the cock just sinks in. The Top makes Wagner sit on his cock and grabs him by waist. It's wonderful. Pay attention to Wagner's hole. Sorry, but I just know it's the gateway to heaven. I just know it. And Wagner has the longest, most wonderful balls ever.
The music changes, and a bearded gentleman is sucking a man with a wonderful fuzzy stomach. I can tell from the ring on this hand that he's the same man who was getting fisted earlier. The bearded one rides while his nipples are being played with. Bearded one is fine. The scene switches, and Blondie is riding the man he was sucking earlier. Great shot of the nipple-chewing. More fucking follows. After a bit, Wagner is on the floor, balls a-swinging. On the floor is lots of cut-up plastic. Those balls of Wagner's send me. Against those thin thighs of his. It's magic. Wagner plays with his talented hole, Love, love a bottom that loves to do that! I could name names, but I don't kiss and tell. Wagner is beautiful as he combs his rosebud with his fingers. He lifts his leg and lubes those mammoth balls, and with some work, he sticks them in his ass. Hot! He even has beautiful hands. He pushes them out of his ass just by using his muscles. You got to see that shit.
The bearded one returns and another handsome man is entering him with a huge dildo. Bearded one has that nice man ass. All hairy and shit. Watch how the Top forces the toy. And guess what? It fits. The bearded one is rock hard. If that's not enough, a second, smaller dildo is introduced, and it fits right beside the other. These are bottoms y'all. A fist goes in alongside the dildo. Then a single fist. Hot. Next, Wagner is back and fists himself solo. Look for the balls swinging. I love solo fisting. Rik Jammer and Hernando are masters. It's sexy to me because it has that "wow" aspect to it. Wagner pats his hole to say to himself, "good job." Next he gets two dildoes in him. The arching of the back and him fucking himself is hot. It's the look in his eyes once again that's haunting. What a performer – and he's versatile, too. He gets his turn to Top with the bearded one as his bottom. The bearded one, I think, is Rage himself. Whoever he is, he has great teeth. And most of the men who performed in the old videos were versatile. I love that. They were real men having real sex, and they weren't hung up on roles. That's gone today. Pity. The fisting 69 was incredible. I loved the can of Crisco sitting on the bed. Nice touch. Blondie is back and he's getting fucked hard. He’s just a-moaning and -groaning. It's real, though, and he and his performer have great chemistry. The one fucking Blondie cums, and it's repeated like four times and that bugged me.
Next, Wagner is lying on his back. He has one leg in Maui and one leg in Manhattan. With him are six hands, and they explore his body and hole. And lube is everywhere. Wagner has his bottle of poppers on his chest, and his balls are stretched and pulled and so is his hole. He's in the zone. He just lies there with nothing but the devil in his eyes. Great shot. He's hot. Two fists penetrate his hole at once. The two hands slowly enter; Wagner reaches over his balls and tries to stick his hand in there, too. Love it. The six hands just stretch him, and he's in pig heaven. I was in pig heaven just watching this time machine take me back in time. It's times like this that I love being a gay man.
The scene switches again, and there are little snaps of nipples and people cumming. Blondie has on tit clamps and he's like mumbling something to the camera. The greasy piece of paper reappears in a pair of greasy hands. The holder of the credits shoves it back in his hole and the film ends.
"Starring Bosch Wagner (the first great fisting star who paved the way for men such as Corey Jay), Manholes presents graphic fisting and handball action that remains unmatched in gay erotica. This film more than any other captured the decadence of the New York underground sexcape of the early 1980s. It was a time of rampant pleasure and uninhibited sex--and it was all caught on film in Manholes. Graphic, unsafe at times, and totally hot, Manholes is THE CLASSIC FISTING VIDEO of the 20th Century." – Chris Ward, Raging Stallion Studios

"What’s really important about Manholes as a historical document was that Rage presented alternative forms of sexuality in his films – with an "indie" film spin. Sort of like a porn film that would have played Sundance. The actors are not your stereotypical clones of that time period. In fact, there are a lot of natural bodies, some with fur, others smooth and filmed with a gritty edge. Would this qualify as Dogme 95 filmmaking? Thank god no, because the sexual energy is fast and furious with various men fucking, sucking, and fisting with wild abandon. I love the opening credits, which were written on a crumpled up piece of paper that are slowly removed from an anonymous self-fisted butthole. You won’t see that kind of creativity in Bend it Like Beckham, that’s for sure. And the New Wave theme song will have you doing your best Molly Ringwald dance." – Cubby Britches, TLA Video
