Controversial Porn: Part 2

I see that my previous post provoked quite a few passionate and thoughtful reactions (as I suspected it might ). I want to thank those of you who took the time to respond, and for keeping the conversation at an intelligent, thought-provoking but respectful level.

I don't want to digress TOO much into a serious intellectual debate....this is still a PORN BLOG after all ! But I would like to elaborate on my previous post and try to explain in a little more depth who I am and why I'm making the types of videos that I am (something I will continue doing through this blog in the weeks and months to come). Some of this will echo what's already been expressed by others.

Let me begin with the obvious: I LOVE BLACK GUYS !!!

Young, MASCULINE black guys in particular. I've been sexually attracted to black males for as long as I can remember.

Unlike a lot of white guys with similar attractions, I'm not a "size queen" with a fetish for "big black cocks." 

My interest in interracial sex is not motivated by any sense of racial inferiority OR superiority.

I'm not seeking out the thrill of breaking a social taboo just for the sake of doing so.

It's not even primarily an "opposites attract" kind of thing, an interest in something "exotic" or "different," although I do enjoy the physical contrasts between black guys and white guys (hair texture, skin complexions, lips, asses, noses, etc.), and I don't think there's anything wrong with acknowledging or enjoying those differences in an erotic context.

I realize that nobody's sexual desires can be attributed to ONE cause, but I do think the origin of my attraction is fairly simple and "innocent." I grew up as one of the only white kids in predominantly black neighborhoods, so by the time I started to figure out at a pretty young age that I liked boys more than girls, most of those same-sex desires were directed at my black friends in school, church, and the neighborhood, sort of by default.

We can probably all agree that sexual desires formed in one's childhood and adolescence are almost impossible to change later in life. It just makes sense that my original objects of lust (and in some cases, LOVE) continue to attract me well into adulthood.

As I started to explain in my previous post, I've also been obsessed with straight males for as long as I can remember, and a variety of related erotic themes including seduction/corruption, prostitution, economic coercion, resistance/reluctance, etc.

I'm also really turned on by themes of domination and submission. I've never gotten into the "S&M" or "leather" scenes. In fact, what I consider "domination" and "submission" is usually comically (some might say PATHETICALLY) tame in comparison .

It's basically just me being, for the most part, a "Top"....in terms of my sexual attractions and preferences, at least. (I like to joke that I was born with the desires of a "top" but the dick of a "bottom," LOL!).

I love getting head and I love fucking ass. Few things excite me more than looking down at a cute boy giving me head, or lying with my naked body smashed against a hot young stud on his stomach as I thrust my dick deep (okay, as deep as I'm able, LOL) in his butt. I love finger- or dildo-fucking a tight young ass, and I love "nutting" on a hot guy's face. I even like getting a little "rough" from time to time. By that I just mean grabbing a guy's head while fucking his face, maybe slapping his ass while fucking him, nothing terribly kinky or imaginative I'm afraid . I'm actually embarrassingly awful at "dirty talk," however....some of you might already have noticed this in my videos .

[Of course I also have a submissive side, and I've enjoyed that dynamic in interracial sex many times as well, moreso in the past than recently however. I *DO* suck dick in most of my scenes, although I don't think I'm particularly good at it!]

There is NOT, however, any kind of exclusive or causal relationship between my attraction to black males and my interest in these themes. All of the "turn-ons" described above are just as much a part of my erotic fantasies/desires involving white boys, Latino and Hispanic boys, Thai boys, Japanese boys, and just about any race/ethnicity you can think of. I chose to focus on black boys (and hopefully a few Latino/Hispanic boys) primarily for two reasons:

First, they're probably my preference (mostly for the reason I explained earlier).

Second, I thought I could bring something at least a tiny bit original to the world of amateur black porn. For example, most all-black scenes, even the more "amateurish" ones, don't take their time and let you get to know the models. And obviously gay interracial scenes featuring white "tops" with black "bottoms" are incredibly rare (although I feel like this has been slowly changing over the past couple years). ESPECIALLY where the black "bottom" is a MASCULINE gay or bisexual boy, or a straight guy going "gay for pay!"  

I can understand how the imagery in some of my videos might disturb or offend some people, black guys in particular. If you fit into that category, all I can do is encourage you to avoid my videos for the sake of your own mental and emotional peace. Or better yet, ignore the stuff that turns you off but stick around for the hot all-black content I still plan on producing!

But you know what??? For every guy who tells me that my videos are racist, exploitative, offensive, etc., I hear from at least ten others (including MANY black guys!) who think they're hot as hell and say they can't wait to see more!

At the end of the day, porn is almost always going to involve some degree of objectification and "exploitation." That's even a big part of its appeal, the idea that beautiful young men (of ALL races) are willing to show off their bodies and perform sexual acts (with varying degrees of enthusiasm) in exchange for a financial reward.

I also think that porn is one place where it's OKAY to be a little "politically incorrect." If you really think about it, porn (both gay AND straight) is all ABOUT stereotyping, racial and otherwise! It's a medium that sort of demands such simplification in order to grab the viewer's attention with a basic but powerful fantasy. 

Burly firefighters, dumb blonde twinks, horny frat-boys, submissive Asians, lusty Italians, the list goes on and on. And yes, it also includes the "dangerous," super-hung black thug from the "hood."

In my everyday non-porn life, I can take my "political correctness" to extremes that annoy even my most liberal friends. But I feel like porn is one arena where we should all relax a little bit and enjoy the enormous erotic potential of character types and social stereotypes (as well as "twists" on those stereotypes ).

Dragon is a hell of a lot more than a "schoolboy," and Shyne (or Cortez, for that matter) certainly doesn't fit neatly or consistently into the "thug" category. But my title isn't meant as an insult to their complexity as human beings! Rather, it's a fun and catchy way to understand and enjoy their video!

Similarly, domination and submission has always been a big part of both straight AND gay sexuality, and certainly it's always been part of what makes a lot of straight and gay porn so hot. Seduction, conquest, sexual domination, rough sex....they're present in just about every type of porn I've seen, including straight porn (interracial and non-interracial), lesbian porn, all-black gay porn, non-black gay porn, etc., etc.

Granted, there's a wide spectrum ranging all the way from cutesy-cuddly-boyfriend-porn, to ultra-violent S&M torture-porn. But there's almost ALWAYS at least a common theme where one or more participants is seduced, conquered, enjoyed, used, dominated, etc., and the other participants get to seduce, conquer, enjoy, use, dominate, etc. the submissive partner.

This is why things like gangbangs, double-penetration, face-fucking, and "facials" are such popular and predictable elements in porn. I don't believe that gay sexuality is ALWAYS like this, or that it SHOULD always be like this, but in PORN it usually is. And I'm fine with that!

But as I see it, one either has to be fine with the dominant/submissive, top/bottom dynamic ACROSS THE BOARD, or oppose it altogether. You can't pick and choose.

It can't be "okay" for an aggressive black top like Thugzilla to verbally humiliate and fuck the shit out of submissive white bottoms and then NOT be "okay" for an aggressive WHITE top to do the same with black guys.

It can't be acceptable for studios to pay straight young WHITE boys to go "gay for pay" in the enormously popular "frat boy" and "military" genres, but "racist" and offensive for studios to do the same thing with straight young BLACK guys.

One shouldn't assume racist or otherwise suspicious motives every time a white guy "tops" a black guy any more than one should assume that all black guys who top white guys are anti-white, or black men who fuck other black men want to demean and humiliate their own race, or straight male porn-stars who fuck (and even dominate) women are misogynists.

I hope this better explains where I'm coming from!

And don't worry, I'll be back with more PORN tomorrow !

    Let's put it this way: if you were not CONSTANTLY putting your models in subservient, some would say demeaning, and most specifically positions that are demeaning such as feeling their faces and shoving your hands into their mouths as if you were inspecting them like a prospective slave buyer or doing that whole "Look at me! I'm a white guy pulling these fake thugs asses apart" thing that you do that have nothing to do with "topping" as a sexual position, then your furious blizzard of words above might hold more weight.

    You compare yourself to other studios, but this is as PERSONAL to you as much as it is a business.

    I'm even tempted to give you the benefit of the doubt that YOU don't believe that you are engaging in racially informed/offensive behavior (despite your upbringing) but then your whole business is racially informed, is it not?

    You have your fans who will defend you, including your models. Nothing new there. But seriously, you need to objectively stand back and look at how you actually behave in your videos. I'm not asking you to stop making videos. Only to more closely examine that heartfelt self-justification you made.

    I don't expect this to be published on the site. But then it doesn't to be.
