This unusual story took a bit of research and appears to be authentic. Emanuel Cini, a resident of Cospicua on the island of Malta, is nearly a week into a hunger strike in protest of the country’s prime minister and other government officials. “Malta must come in line with other European democracies because so far it is not, and no one is accountable for anything,” he told a reporter. Mr. Cini is better known to fans of all-male adult as Manu Maltes. He has nine or ten DVDs on his c.v. for such companies as Lucas Entertainment, Men at Play and Catalina Video, filmed between 2005 and ’08. Shortly after his hunger strike made the local news, he was outed as a porn actor by a local blogger. The newspaper report notes he is “disabled following a condition that affected his brain three years ago” and is confined to his home due to inadequate public transportation. He is “living on liquids only. He drinks sparkling water and a glass of light cola every day.” Malta’s prime minister apparently contacted him to “try and persuade him to stop his actions. An individual has also offered Mr. Cini transportation by means of a van, but he has declined the offer explaining he does not want to be arrogant because he knew there are many other people like him.” He has struggled to regain his health over the past several years. If his conditions are not met, he will maintain his hunger strike. “If I am to die, I will die, even though I enjoy life,” he said.

    Folks — My apologies, but some kind of WordPress bug wiped out a month’s worth of comments. We’re trying to figure out what happened. Sorry about that.

    This is distressing. Manu was one of my absolute favorites…so completely and perfectly sexy and HAWT. I hope he will be okay. Bless you, Mr. Cini, please take care of yourself. DON’T DIE!

    Robert — Your questions were answered in previous comments that got wiped out by WordPress for unknown reasons.

    In any case, Manu’s lover was Edu Boxer. They are apparently no longer together. Manu’s last films were in 2008, so he’s been out of touch with the industry for some time.
