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.

Yes, I think so.

by Anonymousreply 104/13/2013

Yes.

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!

No, that's Simon Halls.

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?

by Anonymousreply 704/13/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 804/13/2013

Who is he?

"Let me get this straight: so you're saying he's cold and obsessed with power, but he's NOT sociopathic."

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.

Watch his scene with a drugged out Richie Fine

That's basically what it is, R10...

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

Those are not mutually exclusive things.

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

by Anonymousreply 1704/14/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 1804/14/2013

No, OP.

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

by Anonymousreply 1904/14/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2104/14/2013

He's also a huge Ann Coulter fan.

by Anonymousreply 2204/14/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2304/14/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2404/14/2013

Douche with a capital D... Huge victim complex, called for boycott of Fire Island because they wouldn't let him film one pf his boring porns there.. Said he "made" FI happen... called for boycott of LGBT center when a pro Palestinian author spoke there... wrote in his blog that he can't walk his dog in peace... hates when people talk to him... MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR douche

I can't believe people think so poorly of Michael Lucas; he seems to be the epitome of success, glamor and sophistication. I smell jealousy!

by Anonymousreply 2604/14/2013

I love his lips.

He could dial a rotary telephone with them through a picket fence.

Huh? He looks like a young Leona Helmsley.

by Anonymousreply 2804/14/2013

Just another loser who found a successful business niche. Anti-semitic, too.

by Anonymousreply 2904/14/2013

And not even hold a pencil in his mouth to do it, R27.

by Anonymousreply 3004/14/2013

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.

So, what's the scoop on Rafael Alencar? Does he like to rape guys in real life, too?

by Anonymousreply 3304/14/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3404/14/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 3504/14/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3604/14/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3704/14/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3804/14/2013

Which fire island video is the one of the boy getting raped for real?

by Anonymousreply 3904/14/2013

Michael Lucas devoted an entire video to farting.

by Anonymousreply 4004/14/2013

R40, too bad all the models were fuggo. I was hoping that ML himself would fart, but he just fucked the models.

Lucas??! He's Jewish, and wants all the Arabs murdered in order to defend Israel.

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.

by Anonymousreply 4504/15/2013

Yeah, R43 there is a notorious Fire Island Cruising film where some guy allegedly got raped and they kept filming it.

by Anonymousreply 4604/16/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4704/16/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4804/16/2013

R48, here is the NSFW scene and the details of the DVD. Notice how Lucas highlight's Fine's "wimpering" in the description.

by Anonymousreply 4904/16/2013

You have to join Lucas Entertainment to look at what's behind the link in R49.

by Anonymousreply 5004/16/2013

Yes, and R48 asked "which one" and the link clearly indicates it is Fire Island Cruising 2.

by Anonymousreply 5104/16/2013

Is he Russian or Chechnyen?
