Paul’s Scathing Commentary to a BAR Reporter about AB 1576

Paul’s Scathing Commentary to a BAR Reporter about AB 1576

John Karr  of the Bay Area Reporter recently emailed Paul Morris asking “What is the impact of AB 1576 on TIM?”
Paul’s Response:
The cowardice of companies like BAR in refusing to acknowledge the realities of sex among men
has saddened me for a long while. As a writer for BAR you’ve been complicit in this truly shameful
and damaging censorship. You’ve behaved like …

RISK AND UTOPIA A Dialogue on Pornography

RISK AND UTOPIA A Dialogue on Pornography

RISK AND UTOPIA A Dialogue on Pornography
Paul Morris and Susanna Paasonen
In his 1977 essay “Entertainment and Utopia,” the film scholar Richard Dyer maps the utopian sensibilities of entertainment. For Dyer, the point of entertain- ment is to present “what utopia would feel like” and to provide solutions to social tensions, inadequacies, and absences experienced in everyday life.1 The utopian promise …

Paul’s Notes || 2nd E-mail Interview, Unedited with Toby McCasker

Read the 1st  interview here.

Hi Paul. I’m sorry I couldn’t pose nude for you. The tyranny of distance. You mentioned a studio in San Fran? Can you give me a brief rundown of both yourself and your involvement in Treasure Island Media?
I’ve been making porn since I was a little boy. I’d save my earnings from my paper route and …

Paul’s Photos || Gus

21 years old, charming, innocence seemingly intact. He was born and raised—and still lives–in a very small town a few hours north of San Francisco.

He wants to be an actor, but living in a small town there are really no opportunities. Ambition, even in the innocent, answers any call though. He said “I realized that I’m got something in my …

The main thing I’m interested in is simplicity and directness.  I don’t seem to have any inclination to become a master of the techniques and mechanics of photography.  No interest in props, in equipment, in anything other than having men remove their clothes and stand in front of me.  The camera is nothing more than an excuse, and when I …

Paul’s Photos || Jason

I’ve been reading the Iliad lately. And even in Homer, laced within all the battling and rage and death, the beauty of men is constantly celebrated.

From the beginning of this shoot, Jason felt like a warrior. He was formal, distant, confident.

He’s 20 and carries his inherent pride without arrogance. I asked him about the tattoo on his chest and he …

PAUL’S PHOTOS || Hugo

There’s a particular feeling to the men who pose nude because they’re exploring themselves. They have a creative willingness that’s playful and refreshing. They’re challenged but not afraid. Hugo is 22. He comes from one of the flat suburban towns of the Bay Area. His father is German, his mother Italian.

I’d been to the Palace of the Legion of Honor a …

PAUL’S PHOTOS || Morten

PAUL’S PHOTOS || Morten

32, straight but “sexually adventurous”. He lives in one of the small coastal towns south of San Francisco. He is an artisan who specializes in stone-work. He seemed to be more at ease nude than with clothes on. He naturally sprawled and relaxed.

He was born in Norway although he added (almost sheepishly) that he had a “good amount of Swedish …

PAUL’S PHOTOS || Soroush

Work had been utterly chaotic, in good part because I’d made the decision to hire an insane–but very nice–young man as an assistant. He was 21 and had disappeared in a flurry of guns, drugs and disaster.
The photo shoot with Soroush was like a tranquil island of absolute peace in comparison.
I was amazed to learn that Soroush is 22.  Compared …
