John Stagliano Interview

Below is a video of an interview with John Stagliano regarding his obscenity prosecution. I’m not sure how old it is (the interview was done in April), but If you’re seriously interested in this case or obscenity law in general, this is a pretty in-depth discussion of the topic. If you’re more interested in John Stagliano’s life and the history of porn, start the video about halfway through.

My Conversation with John Stagliano

John StaglianoI spent the last 4 days in Florida at the Internext Miami trade show. One of the most interesting meetings I attended was with the legendary actor/director John Stagliano. As it turns out, in addition to being the father of gonzo porn, he’s a really nice guy. I was showing him the VideoBox site and I figured he might be interested in your suggestions for porn directors.

He didn’t have time to read all the comments, but I think he got the gist. Since one of the major gripes about porn is that the women never finish the guys off, I asked John why he thought that was. His answer was interesting.

One of his theories is that so many guys in the industry use pills or injections to get an erection. Because they have a hard dick, they can perform, but an erection doesn’t ensure an orgasm. John thinks that they’re hard, but not turned on, so it’s really difficult to ejaculate. Hence the furious jerking off that takes all day.

The other theory John had was that guys in porn are trained to fuck for a long time and that mentality makes it hard to finally come. Additionally, with all of the distractions on a porn set – people standing around, director telling you what to do, etc. – it can be hard to concentrate.

Before we changed subjects, he said that when he was performing, he always tried to have the girl finish him off. He thought it was not only more pleasurable, but makes for hotter, more realistic porn. So I may have been preaching to the converted, but he seemed even more resolute in his belief that it was what fans want by the end of the conversation.

It was kind of serendipitous that I got to show your list to John Stagliano and I have no idea whether I’ll ever have a chance like that again. But he was really impressed by the passion and enthusiasm of VideoBox members and I just wanted you guys to know.
