ManCrush: Paul Stag
I caught up with Paul Stag for a behind-the-scenes look at his online life.
“As a model, I’ve been on every type of set – including being on location for a whole month with only two sex scenes to record, and where there were loads of guys on set, cameras as big as a TV, sound and script guys…” says Paul.
“Over the last decade, the customers have moved heavily towards realism, real sex in real-time – hence the demise of staged studios like Titanmen and Cazzo, and the rise of fan-sites and homemade porn.”
“We use two small cameras, a basic light set-up, and no one else present. So, the models arrive, relax, and do their IDs and paperwork. Then, when they’re ready, we just roll. Once everyone is happily de-spunked and the man-seed has been played with and passed around as much as possible, we call cut.”
“Most scenes we film are done in under two hours. The more experienced porn stars really like it as it feels as near to off-camera sex as possible. Once you’ve done those long, drawn-out 8-hour shifts with an injected cock for that fake boner look, guys seem to greatly appreciate plain natural sweaty real-time un-faked ass shagging.”
“As a performer, I was always top and extremely verbal, so I just can’t keep my mouth shut…” explains Paul, describing his directing style. “I’m ex-military and an ex-cop, so I come from very masculine environments where i learned how to fuck – there’s an awful lot of macho encouragement for a top when a group of men in a macho environment like a Rugby Club are drilling a guy, So, that’s become my style.”
“I like to drive my tops on, encourage them to go all out and fuck their subs up. I appreciate that sometimes it breaks the ‘fourth wall’ when the crew get involved, which may put off some viewers, but I think that all studios and directors need a style or identity as there’s just so much bland interchangeable porn in the middle-ground.”
“We could call it gonzo directing, military directing, or whatever, but my promise to viewers is that they will never be bored.”
“Guys watch porn in so many different ways. I know that we have fans who watch around two hours of gay fucking every night, and others who just watch a couple of minutes in their washrooms during a lunch-break while they bust a quick nut out. The industry average time that a porn viewer watches for is eight minutes. So, as pornographers, we may wish for people to start at the beginning, watch all the way through and don’t fast forward or jump through bits of our art, but this is the real world.”
“Some porn directors think that they’re Scorsese or Christopher Nolan, but we’re happy if the customer empties his sack satisfactorily or if we help a gay couple get into the right head-space, and that they want to come back another time when their groin begins to get that urge. We will always be there when your cock or hole needs us – we have no loftier objectives than that.”
