Is Michael Lucas a sociopath?
In his "Auditions" videos he's always asking his models questions that seem intended to make them squirm or comfortable. And in the films he writes, he'll frequently have narrators say things like, "New York is just about one thing... POWER... who has it, and who is crushed beneath them..."
He also has a really creepy affect in his films--he never engages with other people as human beings.

Why are some people so surprised that sociopaths/psychopaths exist?

I know Michael slightly. He's not warm and fuzzy and he is indeed about power; but I wouldn't call him a sociopath. We get along fine, as long as we avoid politics.

At least he has good taste in men!

The New Yorker did an article about him several years ago...he comes off as a total douche. He even belittles the very performers he exploits to make his money. Does anyone know the real reason he dropped Bruce Beckham ? He was signed as an exclusive by ML, and touted as the next big thing, then disappeared overnight due to some falling out.

Let me get this straight: so you're saying he's cold and obsessed with power, but he's NOT sociopathic.
Sociopaths are people who are incapable of empathy and who see the world in terms of how they can manipulate others. How does he not fit the definition then?

Based on what I've heard about him I wouldn't be surprised.

I think you need to look up the definition of a sociopath, it is not merely being a cold person who lacks empathy. If that were the case there would be a hell of lot of sociopaths.

I think so, along with R. Alencar.

He is NOT a sociopath; he is a Jew who is very dedicated to the preservation of the State of Israel.

No, that's basically it: a sociopath is someone who lacks all empathy.

He can't be that much of a Jew if he won't get circumcised.

He just has a big ego like most of the bitches on this site.

Considering the fact that he's called for the extermination of Arabs, and has called for us to support Republicans, a party that is vehemently anti-gay, because they support Israel, and Israel isn't anti-gay, yeah, I'd call him a sociopath, AND an ignorant moron.

[quote]Psychopathy is a popular term often used to refer to a person characterized by reduced fear, a lack of empathy, coldheartedness, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity, criminality, antisocial behavior, a lack of remorse, and a parasitic lifestyle.
"Sociopath" directs you here on wikipedia: the article also notes that "sociopath" and "psychopath" are used pretty much interchangeably.

He's also a huge Ann Coulter fan.

He's a major turnoff. And I haven't paid him enough attention to say if he is a [italic]sociopath[/italic]. I think he's a bore.

I've seen him out at parties over the years. He ALWAYS makes the same silly Zoolander pouty face. It is laughable. So I formed a bad impression of him from that. This was before I was aware of his right wing leanings. I'm really not very familiar with his work, since I'm not a big consumer of mainstream porn.

MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR douche

Give him another ten, fifteen years. Then he'll have the plastic surgery done. It'll permanently plaster that pained rictus expression and duck lips on his face.

I served him once, in a restaurant. I asked "Can I get you something to drink?" And he totally freaked out on me saying "I don't drink." (Like I knew.) Then he proceeded to eat the free chips and not order anything. What a douche-bag.

Wow, R12, he seemed deaf to Richie's discomfort, who was practically in tears.

Andre Treivas, or "Michael Lucas" as he calls himself, does come off as a complete douche. He has a major superiority complex.
But does anyone else in NYC remember when he was whoring himself out in the back of HX years ago? I always tell the sordid tale of the one time I hired him back in 1997.
Maybe he has gotten colder since he turned 40 last year. Who knows.

Has ML ever shown hole? In the videos I've seen he's been the dominant one, prying someone else's hole open or fucking the living daylights out of them. I would like to see his hole.

I also remember listing to Blu Kennedy talk about how he likes to blow air into a porn actors ass to get him to fart. Weird. Blue said he wanted to be swallowed by a hole in the mattress when Michael made him fart on camera he was so embarrassed.

I saw him at the opera once, and he was wearing that same face. I think there were hints of "why doesn't anyone recognize me?" going on as well.

Yeah, R43 there is a notorious Fire Island Cruising film where some guy allegedly got raped and they kept filming it.
|by Anonymous||reply 46||04/15/2013|
No, it was not RAPE-RAPE, otherwise the cops would have been involved at some point. It was an obviously high porn star who kept saying no - and then yes - and then giggling - despite the fact he was paid to be there and was paid to have sex. Richie acted very unprofessionally.

r46, do you know which one? I googled this, and there's no mention of a rape. The story sounds interesting, sort of like Brent Corrigan doing porn underage. Scandalous.
