WITH A PISS PORN PRODUCER
by noah masterson
knew JJ (full name withheld by request) as my brothers
classy friend. He drove a Mercedes, wore nice clothes, carried
a gun, and somehow assimilated effortlessly into my brothers
social circle of drunk rednecks. He was the kind of guy who
could talk to anyone, which is probably how, after getting
a law degree, he convinced girls to pee on camera for money.
Can you give me a synopsis of the videos you produced? What
were the titles?
The two titles were: Wet Hot With Niki Newman and Stacy The
Wet Island Princess. There was not a whole lot of storyline;
it was more a voyeuristic fantasy of watching these two sexy
chicks doing something private. Both movies had six different
scenes, all involving either the talent urinating and/or female
self-gratification. The scenes were all shot at my partners
family summer house in a rural area of central Florida. The
house [was] on a lake, the girls performed on the wooden deck,
on the kitchen floor, in the bathtub, in the woods. All easy
places to clean up afterwards.
How did you get involved with this? Why?
Why, is easy, its all about the Benjamins! How, my partner
in my law practice had a friend in publishing fetish magazines,
and he told us how cheap and profitable these films could
be. Producing films without intercourse also is easier; you
dont have to have AIDS tests, no worries about other
STDs or even pregnancy. Also legally, mixing fetish stuff
with intercourse has been found to be illegal in certain communities.
Being a lawyer is good and bad; sometimes I think I would
have been better off if I didnt know all the legal pitfalls.
Especially in this type of industry, I think you need to throw
caution to the wind and do it.
How did you recruit actors? Were they just friends, or
were they already in the Industry?
We got the actors through ads in New Times, a small, local,
free newspaper. It was a very surreal scene having these girls
show up at my office to apply for the role; picture a stuffy
law office conference room with 19th century French furniture,
and girls lined up outside waiting to get naked. It was an
adolescent fantasy come true!
What were they paid?
The girls got $500 each. Sounds crazy, but that was more than
the industry standard at the time.
Who cleans up the mess after each shoot?
Like I said, we chose scene locations that were easy to clean,
by hose or mop. Should have done an S&M videothat
way some guy could have licked it up and that would have been
more film footage. [Laughs]
I think you told me once that you could shoot pissing in Florida,
but not sex. What are the legal issues in producing pissing
Porn is not a matter of where you film it, but rather where
you sell it. We as Americans are very proud of our freedom
of speech, but it is not as free as most think. One area of
speech that is regulated is pornography; there is a Supreme
Court case that established a multi-pronged test that gives
each community the ability to determine, by their own standards,
what is pornographic and illegal. If you think it would interest
your readers, I could elaborate on the history of the 1st
Amendment. Kind of funny central Florida is on the "dont-sell-to
list" for most mail order porn distributors, and here
we were filming in their backyard.
Is there a lot of demand for pissing videos? How many copies
did you sell?
I think that it was a hot niche, but we caught the tail end.
I think that when Penthouse started showing girls peeing it
lost its naughtiness. Once something becomes acceptable by
the mainstreamI dont meant to imply that there
is not still a market for pee videos, its just that
when we sold our tapes they were $59 each. Now you can get
pee videos for under $20. We sold around two thousand tapes
total. I guess most readers would be surprised to learn how
much the advertising costs are. The big name porn magazines
get hundreds of thousands of dollars for ad space, so obviously
we were limited to smaller fetish oriented magazines and a
few real small ads in some of the big boys. Considering that
the production costs were so minimal, even with the advertising
costs, it was a lucrative venture.
Did you consider shitting videos?
Yes, I considered it. I think that the industry calls that
"scatting." I got bored real quick with the pissing
videos, I think because it is not something that I find sexy.
If I were to get involved again in porn, I would want to make
videos that were arousing to me. It may sound corny but there
is an artistic side to porn, and to do a good job you have
to love what you do.
Whats next, since youre no longer producing piss
I am looking for projects to get involved in. I think that
considering current events, Catholic Church spoof kind of
stuff would make for some interesting videosobviously
not involving children. A few horny priests and sexy nuns
After eight years of Catholic school, I dont know if
I could jump on that bandwagon.
