ff

thanks Rod!

Hmmmm...

Now I LOVE porn, but I am concerned. At least from the video I saw, it appeared that Jason was the only model who was completely naked. It was a little "slave auction" to me. Realizing of course that this was ultimately part of a porn shoot, it was still raised a little flag.

blkarkitect - i had the same thought. wouldn't surprise me if michael lucas had no sensitivity about the historical objectification of black bodies, lucas being russian-born (and a self-declared multiculturalist) and all. still, tho, jason was the *only one*...?

Oh man, that video just ruined Jason as a fantasy guy. He came off as not only extremely effeminate, but as somewhat flighty and bitchy. He went from seeming like Taye Diggs' little brother to being RuPaul. Talking about killing a fantasy.

ff

out of all the models, which one would you prefer to see nude? Jason would have been my first, second and third choices.

and i missed the "bitchy" part of Jason. a little effeminate? sure. a whole lotta PHYNE?! no doubt.

Hearing him talk ruined any possibility of fantasy in the future. He actually comes off like a high school girl.

And people wonder why so many dudes watch the guys in straight porn? Too many of the guys in gay porn lack the masculinity in real life to sustain the fantasy and ruin it for us when we see them out of character.

so what if he's not uber butch? i hate gay men who try to hard to outbutch hetero guys. jason was masculine enough for me, and he's still hot as hell.

It's somewhat ridiculous to attempt to deconstruct Jason Tiya's final runway walk in the fashion show scene of "La Dolce Vita" through a racial-historical prism because it's a porn movie. A high concept production, but still, explicitly pornographic and in a strictly theoretical sense, all of the models are being "objectified." However, in that particular scene--as previously reported here--Jason and the models began fully clothed and gradually stripped.

Also, it's unfortunate that some of you are upset that Jason's real-life persona failed to meet the "fantasy" that you constructed from watching porn movies. But that sounds more like internalized homophobia, low self-esteem, and, stereotypical concepts of black masculinity.

Not sure why random posts about porn and shirtless men tend to bring out so much "historical" analysis. There are more pressing issues which many people routinely choose not to comment upon, such as HIV, homophobia, politics and the courts.

Rod, I'm glad that you came in to co-sign "FF" and "Michael" and make a statement about these silly comments. Why do so many gay men act bitchy themselves but are so darn quick to say they find any sign of effeminancy (sp?) a turn-off or any man who is not uber-masculine? Enough already, let's enjoy all types of gay men, not silly fantasies based on porn movies.

Hey guys, I work for Lucas- about the race thing- we WISH more hot black guys would audition! That's the problem, my guess is that there is more homophobia in the black community so less black guys are out or willing to come in for auditions ... really I don't know ... but that's the case. Please send the sexy guys over if you know them! casting@lucasentertainment.com is where they have to email.
