Overview

Ask anyone who the biggest name in gay porn is and they'll tell you, "Michael Lucas." Ask what he's like and you'll get the gamut of replies: He's a smart, shrewd businessman who studied law and loves the opera. A witty raconteur who doesn't drink, smoke or do drugs. A loyal son who is close to his family. Bracingly honest. Ruthless. A hot top with a killer body. Sexy. Razor-tongued and iron-fisted. Michael Lucas has been called everything on his climb from rent boy to running the most successful gay porn business in the entire world--but he's never been called boring. Now, in this no-holds-barred biography, Corey Taylor delivers a delicious portrait of gay porn's hottest maverick.

From the start, Michael Lucas challenged the stereotype of a porn star. He did not grow up in an abusive family. Instead, he was born and raised in Soviet Russia as Andrei Treyvas to a close-knit family of outspoken, intellectual Russian Jews. The shy, skinny kid grew up to be a handsome man determined to make his mark on the world--and how. From his start as an escort in Europe, to his hustling days in America, making the money he would invest in his own company, Lucas Entertainment, Michael's life is inspiring, provocative, and 100% candid--no filter.

NAKED lays bare the fascinating, often surreal life of a sexy, complex man who has set his own standards and played by his own rules. Chock full of outrageous quotes and "you've got to hear this" stories, this is one biography just like its subject: one of a kind.

Corey Taylor has a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Memphis. He has written for U.S. publications (Unzipped, Men, Artisan Northwest) as well as for publications in the UK (reFRESH) and Australia (DNA), covering celebrity features, art, fashion, and politics. Corey lives in Chicago, Illinois.

    Porn Made Boring

    The under-qualified author writes in fawning adulation of his subject 'Michael Lewis', and has produced a stream-of-consciousness work of sycophantry. The viewpoints are odd, not curious, but odd, even galling at times. For example, by virtue of the subject's husband's alumni status, the subject is given the opportunity to speak to students at a Yale Master's Tea. Afterward, the author writes that the subject 'had joined company with other greats. . . like John McCain, Oliver Stone, Meryl Streep, [&] Kurt Vonnegut. . . .' Nowhere is the subject's greatness explained or demonstrated, rather it is assumed from the outset, and extolled as a means of proving its factuality. The delusion continues as the subject declares that because he has used New York's Fire Island as a location in several films, the local residents 'should put a monument to me on Fire Island, but they are way too arrogant for that.' The author fails to cite this as an example of the subject's own arrogance, but rather appears to quote the subject in steadfast agreement. All in all, this is a poorly-edited, exhaustingly-quoted, and failed attempt at a clinical analysis of its subject, lacking objectivity or excitement. Only upon reaching the epilogue does the reader discover that the subject terminated contact with the author during the course of the project. One can only wonder if the subject saw an early draft, and pulled out as a means of damage control.
