Overview

Who Is Wax Williams?

Ted Romling: Wax is the ne plus ultra--the ultimate, nothing beyond him, nothing greater. His loss will affect the porn industry in myriad ways. He brought people into the stores.

Renee Salmon: People always ask me if Wax Williams was the love of my life. I tell them that he was the love of this life for me. And maybe he was the love of a past life, too. The older I get, the more I realize that everything I do is guided by my past lives. We are born and born again. Sex is the connector.

Lyle Mammon: I am not a thief. I'm a man who met up with a boy with a tremendous cock, and I rode that cock to the bank.

Ty Boyce: I am Lyle Mammon's amanuensis. He hired me to transcribe dirty dictation. Plus I have some ideas of my own. Over the years I have developed some expertise at the double entendre. And I am a tireless pursuer of the koan-like single entendre.

Todd Insulin: Wax's stardom in the world of adult films coincided with porn's largest growth spurt in public consumption.

Wax Williams: People are always so critical of porno actors. We might not be good actors, but the truth is nobody knows how to act before they have sex--or after.

Interweaving traditional narrative with consumer profiles, faux interviews, court depositions, and a film script, Without Wax is a fictional biography that provides an intriguing glimpse into the adult entertainment industry.

Rain Taxi Review of Books
Without Wax is full of the electric, the taboo, the sadly bizarre.
