“Michael Lucas is known as a porn mogul and a polarizing figure in today’s gay culture. I find this hard to believe sometimes as I know Michael as a wickedly funny, diva-obsessed, fashion victim (in the good way) full of good nature and strong opinions. He does not mince words, which is a rarity for people in or out of the spotlight. With Michael you get what you see. That’s remarkable. Most people don’t have the balls to say what’s on their mind all the time. As his films prove he has the balls and so much more.”
Bradford Shellhammer, Founding Editor, Queerty.com

He is personally dragging gay adult entertainment out of the shadows of peep-show booths and into the limelight, and he isn’t asking for permission, either. Hate to love him, or love to hate him, here he is.”

His films pay homage to some of the most classic images in cinematic history while capturing the raw sexuality of men.”

The epitome of cool, it is his wit, work ethic, focus and drive that may just conspire to make the 15 minutes he says will never end, last a lifetime.”
Genre Magazine

“You really left people in awe, me included. In my mind what you did was nothing less than laying down the laws of objective image making. One of my friends was proposing that every film school in the world would benefit by inviting you to lecture. Your confidence, honesty, and humor made the performance so accessible, in spite of its extreme subject. It was truly excellent.”
Matthew Barney, Artist
