nothing like a healthy porn star feud to take your mind of unemployment, mishandled bailout money, jamaica, that wench who ran for vice president recently or lovely daughter biden and her hard to please cocaine demands....
Never shy to discuss topics he considers himself an expert on, Michael Lucas stoked the race fire earlier this month with a few words on why, in his view, there aren't enough black men in gay porn. Simply put: Homophobia. The black community hates "the gay lifestyle" too much to put black penises in black butts. Or something. Like much of what Lucas writes or does online, his missive drew its critics. Including black porn stars.
Like Diesel Washington, who Lucas dubs "THE PORN STAR WHO GOT IT ALL WRONG."
Washington responded to Lucas' comments (in tw33n sp3@k) and Lucas responded to Washington with his own in-line response (in bold), because THIS IS HOW INTERNET DIALOGUE WORKS:
Now lets talk about the whole M.L. thing, I read his blog about the Homophobia in the Black Community….BULLSHIT…… M.L. knows nothing about the situation… (Really? Do I not read newspapers, watch TV, or listen to rap?) He really needs to stop opening his mouth about subjects he knows nothing about…. He really should stick to talking about what he knows best…..The Russian Jew thing!!! I don't care if he employs Black Models in his movies or what not… U cant speak about things that U know nothing about…. I had to check M.L. a few times at the Gay Porn Summit in 2008 for making comments that he knew nothing about (what the hell is he talking about?). Its all Hype and Bullshit and he is taking things too far…. I'm here to give him a reality check… STOP TALKING ABOUT THINGS THAT DON'T EFFECT YA!!! (Actually, it does affect me very much, as it affects any gay man, no matter what color he is). Ur not Black, or ever will be Black, (It's very insightful. I will never be black, but I see no problem talking about any issue that any community of the world has) so stop talking on the behalf of the Black Community… (Actually, I never did talk on behalf of the black community)
And bless our controversy-loving hearts, Lucas didn't end there:
Diesel Washington is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and he decided to make an Anti-Semitic comment, where he basically said that I should shut up and only talk about the "Jewish thing." This points out the Anti-Semitism in the African-American community, which I believe goes back to the 1960s (Check out articles here and here). I don't take Anti-Semitism lightly, so I left a message for Keith Webb at Titan. I haven't heard back from him yet. But I wanted to bring it to the industry's attention. Lots of industry professionals are Jews, and I don't think that such comments should be tolerated.
On a sidenote, I'd like to point out Diesel Washington's confusion. Diesel is saying that in order to comment on the black community, one should be black. WRONG! One doesn't have to be black in order to comment about African Americans, just like one doesn't have to be white to talk about the white community.
PS: Please don't get me wrong. I am very friendly with the guys at Titan Media. I collaborated with them on projects and the comments by Diesel Washington does not reflect at all on Titan Media, though I believe that Titan should take appropriate actions.
In order to comment on the porn industry, do we need to be in porn?
this might be one of my most graphic and vulgar and instigating an arguement type, editorials i've ever written...i apologize...i'm gonna go wash my fingers and keyboard out with soap afterward hehe
now i'm not really sure what i think of all this unnecessary quarrelling but i have some ideas about it and i feel like expressin them hehe
first of all...i don't know what prompted mr. lucas to say all that he did but if he did any research or paid attention to any other porn company or penis other than his own, he would know there are quite the lot of black, latino and blatino porn companies and sites out there...all the way up to barebacking and every other taboo and cliche so it's definitely not a new genre by any means...and he wasn't making a groundbreaking statement by alluding to the fact that there is a strong force of homophobia in the african american community as there is in just about every other boxed in nationality, stereotype and religious group, but to attempt to correlate the two together made for some irresponsible pseudo-reporting/editorializing as far as i'm concerned. the debate could go on for hours about this whole scenario and i think that diesel's retaliation was geniusly calculated to sit on the verge of being a big mistake and misconstrued as ignorant.
it seems diesel might actually be one of the sharper knives in the drawer and senor lucas should stick to what he knows best...methodical watersports 'bonus' scenes and nauseatingly narcissistic attempts at 'serious' porn film making with...storylines. that's like putting horseradish into your cheesecake recipe and passing it off as a tiramisu. (how's that for the most ridiculously forced, non cliched analogy ever! haha). if you want to make a film with a storyline and construct it with actual characters with emotional archs and a full blown script...then do it...and leave the graphic sex scenes for the blue store on eighth avenue. plain and simple, nobody wants anything other than hot men having hot sex with maybe a little sprinkle of a tongue in cheek 'awkward' situation to be the scenario behind the filmed 'encounter'. now i've met michael lucas and was definitely impressed with the brief conversation we had one summer afternoon in chelsea when i ran into him hanging out with my friend steven aka hedda lettuce. i don't remember much about the conversation but it was obvious mr. lucas had more to offer than his dick and good looks.
i've actually enjoyed reading his little 'essays' towards the back of hx magazine once in a while where he would rant with a strong helping of sassiness about a current controversial topic ruffled up with sharp injections of intelligent wit and sarcasm...several of those elements that have gone and dried up years ago in that formerly 'politically incorrect' publication and all that remains is a glossy, super homogenized and photoshopped shell of a magazine that gives awards each year to the bar that buys the most ads and offers all the advice it can to be the perfect, zombie stereotype of what a faggot is supposed to be to get by in this world. at least mr. lucas was offering some punch and power with his words.
i certainly agree with him when he said that you don't have to be black to have an opinion about the black community, but like i said earlier...there is really no relevance to the points that he made about black men and their 'absence' in the porn industry when they are certainly well represented in my opinion from the most 'ghetto' thug pulled straight from the streets of harlem at his lowest point, submitting to jerking off on camera (disgusted in knowing its for a bunch of creepy, old white faggots to jerk off to) to the uber polished, david bartonized, eyebrows tweezed/goatee penciled in, lispy boy from nebraska who just happens to be black (but has wished he was white all his life) screaming like a girl while he gets double penetrated for the first time on camera and everything in between. when it comes to porn...the word fetish or taste or type comes to mind...certain bodies look better in leather...some better in fatigues...others in a jock strap and people are hired only for the equation of their endowments, their willingness, their attractiveness and threshold for pain...but first and foremost as a commodity, a selling point, whether they convey what the person making the film wants them to convey or at least get close to it after hours and hours of filming and hours and hours of editing. eventually, real amateur porn started to take the reigns because there were only so many pizza delivery guys that got a different kind of tip storylines, patron who stayed until the bar closed and made googly eyes at the bartender scenarios and coaches that 'accidentally' walked in on their newest team member masturbating in his jock incidences before people got bored. thanks to xtube, voyeurism exploded into a whole new universe of possibility. porn is about its viewers idolizing, fantasizing, watching, closeted or not and the visuals and actions they want to pay for are as specific as they are broad.
calling diesel "THE PORN STAR WHO GOT IT ALL WRONG" is ludicrous...especially coming from someone that has been in the business for years. i would definitely like to hear his elaboration on that statement because i've met mr. washington and i would have to brutishly disagree with that lucasism. diesel is a sight to be seen in any of the films i've seen him in. a giant in stature, he towers over most if not all of the actors he shares the screen with. he comes in carrying a frame of muscles built upon muscles, a thick, dark and meaty manhood that he certainly knows how to use and a naturally devious unsmile that pushes his intimidation factor well over the edge. would it make sense if he were cast as an emotional lover, cooking pancakes for his honey while intermittenly squeezing fresh orange juice before his boyfriend finally wakes up and enters the kitchen with his boxer shorts tenting and eventually forcing diesel on his knees to service him. no. no. no. it would be ridiculous. diesel saw his market and thrusted straight head on into it and worked it to his advantage. the best part about it is that diesel has the warmest smile on that ruggedly handsome face, is extremely friendly and sensual and a pleasure to work with. he has made appearances at the eagle and gay erotic expo in nyc when i've been djing and he quickly and easily destroys any semi-prejudiced misconception you had of this 'tall, black, slightly thuggish' superman that walks into the room. the thing is...diesel is a wild, animalistic, relentless top in the movies...so far playing the 'angry black man' role pounding the hell out of mostly clean cut, little white boys who have no idea what they signed up for. is he like that all the time? not sure. is he like that once in a while when he is with someone he is really into and wants to lose control? not sure. doesn't matter. it is none of our business. diesel is doing his job and doing it well. he's also pretty new on the scene in relation to the seasoned career of the czar. in mr. lucas' extensive career, i think the only role he's ever played was that of a selfish top with a big dick and a full bladder. i don't recall ever seeing or hearing about him managing to give up control enough to let himself be filmed being a bottom for the camera. would that make him less of a man? could there possibly be a little homophobia action beneath michael lucas' perfect skin that is sneaking out in the form of a big whitehead of misplaced agression?
does he not think that there are quite a freakin lot of people that would pay big bucks to see his tight, 'russian jew' ass get ripped to shreds by a well hung stud while his perpetually puckered lips are pierced by another fat cock and his eyes water with tears as he chokes on it?
i have a solution that will be the lucas film/titan media blockbuster collaboration of the year.
have 'the porn star who got it all wrong' diesel washington, mandingo extraordinaire, star in a volume of 'auditions' where he pretends to be straight and then freaks out and rapes the hell out of michael lucas and takes a big leak right on those big, juicy pout for all of both of their fans to see. i know i would certainly illegally download that scene! wouldn't you?
no hard feelings guys...kiss and make up. it sounds like you have been taking tips from 50 cent and kanye west and are trying to drum up some attention with a controversial feud to beef up sales. we really don't care if you guys hate each other...we just want to see you fuck! haha
(i promise the next post will feature butterflies and dolphins and a way different type of fairy)
