Want to own a piece of Michael Lucas? Of course you do! Who wouldn’t!?
We’re all in luck, then, because the Russian porn mogul recently took to eBay to auction off some of his least cherished belongings. While one would think Lucas would enlist one of his male beauties to model the goods, he chose to put himself in the pictures.
Perhaps he thought his – cough – “natural” good looks would help boost sales.
ugh did you have to make a blog!? I wanted a few things and I didn’t want people to know about the auction 🙁
Um, whats with his lips? Does he really always have to look like that?
i think he’s good looking the lip looks a little past “natural” My guess is that he must have an injection or got punched in the mug.
Hey, at least he’s trying to earn some money without plastic sexbots for a change. Can you Febreeze out the Creepies, though?
I’ve been reading Queerty for quite some time now, and haven’t felt like making a comment. Today, I delurk to say one thing, and one thing only. Or rather, ask one thing. Who on earth actually jacks off to this guy? I mean, he just… he looks like Derek Zoolander, without a trace of self-deprecation. How is that attractive to anyone?
DO NOT WANT!
For a pro photographer, he takes lousy eBay pics. Doesn’t he know the highest bids go to the sellers with the best pics?
No thanks! Gross
Michael Lucas is a classy, creative guy. Too bad that you bloggers don’t have anything better to complain about than Michael Lucas recycling some of his stuff. Come on, get a life!!!!
stop being anvy at him. lucas is so hot.he make so much money.he is the real thing.no surgerys.
those lips are hot!!!!!!!
bin laden abdulla
are you surprize? he is a JEW!!!
He will sell his mom for money…
You guys can say that he is ugly as much as you want, he will still be regarded as a gay icon and one of the most stunning men alive.
He is so old,ugly,looks like holocaust surviver.
who buy is movies?
must be is rich boyfriend!!!

So sad !he has to sell his cloths for money?
the empire is falling.there is god.
What with the sunken face?????
bad plastic surgery.buy some food with the money you gonna make.lol
I applaud queerty and all of you guys who give Hell to this cheap Jew, Lucas. In fact, this guy is so cheap as I read in Michael Musto’s column (one of the other ugly Jews who keeps writing about him) that in the next 2 days he will put up more than 200 pieces of clothes (that his models wore in his films) This jew is so cheap that he wouldnt even donate it to the Salvation army. He would rather make another $10k. He is also too cheap to pay a real model or even hire a professional photographer. And that is the guy who makes millions on poor actors who he rips off and never pay royalities to. Fuckin shrewd Jew!!!
Andrew, is there any way to ban whoever is making the racist comments above? I’m all for pushing the edge & letting the sparks fly, but this is pretty clearly hate speech.
Wow, funny how the anti-semites here seem to be so miserable and jealous about money – what’s the matter, working at Abdullah’s Street Meat Hallal not paying the bills this winter? *rollseyes* Really, get a life.
Michael Lucas is known for creative cinematic masterpieces, so good for him for being business savvy and to take dead weight fashion articles and sell them so that he can bring in a new crop of designs. Anyone who doesn’t see the logic in this clearly doesn’t own their own business. I for one applaud him on that.
As for the comments on his looks – I’d love to see what some of you characters look like. The man is gorgeous for 35. Take a look around you at your 35 year old set and they probably don’t even look half as good as him.
And for what it’s worth, the man will forever be a gay icon – I totally agree with that. I am sure Michael is secretly thanking you for all the free publicity to his ebay page. That’s just more sales for him!
So much hate, yet the man is so successful. He knows how to get his name out there.
And to the anti-semetic muslims on here: why don’t you go back to raping little boys while you bring diseases home to your wive(s)…I’m sure Michael doesn’t give a flying fuck what you think.
I’m very confused by the homo Muslims who’ve commented above. Unrepressed enough to let the ‘mo flag fly and yet still primitive enough to be total haters. Clearly, they need to lick some matzo balls and suck deep and hard on a nice long piece of gefilte fish to chill out on the racism. Call me, Muslim homos, and I’d love to introduce you to the pleasures of a nice smooth circumcized Semitic slab of brisket.
how do you think of his zction.i am sure i have seen him when i visit gaysinglehunt.com.maybe we should share our thoughts ,he is always on the spotlight on that website
He is only 35????????????????????????
Look at the comments above: I have not faced such ugly anti-Semitism since Soviet Russia! I am sorry to say but this web site attracts the worst of the gay community.
I do not know the reason why Queerty readers are so anti-Semitic: It might be my strong and vocal support for Israel that Queerty criticized on so many occasions. In fact, they did it so often, that their readership does not even realize that the owner and the writer of the site are Jews themselves (not my kind of Jews, but still Jews).
It is one thing to to keep pointing out in every and each post that I am possibly the ugliest man alive and that my lips are full of Silicon and that my cheekbones are implanted and that I am too old and that I am either too fat or too skinny — but another thing to blame all my supposedly horrible qualities on my ethnic background.
Dear editors of Queerty: Maybe with your constant bashing of my Zionism and my strong views on Islam you got yourself the most anti-Semitic readership on the gay web.
And if someone thinks that in America anti-Semitism doesn’t exist, he/she should just visit Queerty!
You need to get over yourself. Our coverage of you has nothing to do with how our readers perceive you – they have their own minds.
Sure, some of them may be closed, but they’re autonomous.
You just want drama to keep yourself relevant.
Check out the new issue of Gloss Magazine San Francisco. Michael Lucas is on the cover with an interview inside. You can download the entire issue by clicking on “Current Issue” and a PDF of the magazine will download onto your desk top. There is also an interview with Kathy Griffin!
Check It Out!
Queerty: I would encourage you to check the origins of the anti-Semitic comments. Mr. Lucas is so virulently anti-Muslim, to the point where he has written atrocious, racist comments that go far beyond even the already atrocious comments here regarding Jews, that I would not be surprised if he or those around him were not injecting the anti-Semitism so he could (as he did) point it out and play the victim. The gay community has plenty of anti-Semites, some outspoken, some a little more closeted, but I think most gay people like or dislike Mr. Lucas based on other factors, such as his demeanor in the press, love/hate of his films, his looks, etc. Sorry, separate anti-Semitic comments from commenters using Muslim names (and even “bin laden abdulla!”) sound totally phony to me.
Sorry Here is the web Site:
I have no problem with your particular post, my problem is with your ongoing criticism of Israeli policy and my views on it. That has obviously brought to your website hordes of anti-semites. I am sure your readers have their own mind, but any mind can be triggered and pushed into a wrong direction, and that’s what you’ve successfully achieved. I do not create drama, I care about community and it’s shocking to me to see Americans and the world at large become so incredibly anti-semitic. I believe it should be alerting for you as well. And if you think I am so irrelevant, then why do you dedicate so many posts to me? It doesn’t make any sense Mr. Belonsky. In fact nothing what you or the majority of your readers make any sense. It was always tacky and nasty, but now it’s shaping into a different form – a form which even you would not want to see. The form that David Hauslaib, the owner of this website, probably doesn’t want to see.
Dear Mr. Rettenmund,
I rarely engage in answering blog comments. I believe I did it only once my whole life. But this is an issue of importance, so I would like to respond to you.
Yes, it is true that I hate Islam, as I believe it suppresses any progressive thought and has tarnished humanity for already 1400 years. By the way, I never spoke badly about Arabs… they are nothing more but victims of Islam.
I agree with you on one point: people who left their anti-Semetic comments on this site are not Muslims. Muslims usually don’t read gay websites.
Jewish men like me who care so much about Israel and his people would never post such garbage.
The people who are doing it are the same people who comment about me all the time on this blog. I am sure that Mr. Belonsky can tell you after writing about me for years who the commentators are: the same five jealous haters posting under different names.
I think NO 26 has an interesting point. The anit-semitic comments all seem to come from the same poster … but so do some of the pro-Lucas ones (same misspellings, same grammatical mistakes, same use of RANDOM capitals and multiple exclamation marks !!!). Andrew, can you check the IP, see if this guy isn’t pulling a Tawana Brawley?
Whether you like or dislike Michael Lucas is one thing. Attack and hatred are another. We live in a world where children lack health care and education, where society steps over homeless people saying they have no money only to enter a Starbucks and spend five dollars on a cup of coffee. The gay community has more than enough scrutiny from the outside world. There are enough people ready to extinguish us for our mere existence – but from the posts here, they need not worry – we hate enough within our own community to satisfy anyone. Let’s talk about real issues – like the meth epidemic. I’ve had two friends die in the last few months, and a friend of a dozen years (half using) now with 150 days sober…
It’s 2008. It’s time to step up, outside of, and look to a world of acceptance and tolerence – one filled with compassion. It all begins with each and every one of us. Is Michal perfect? No. Has he made a contribution? Yes. Does he have passion? Yes. Does his persona amuse me as much as bemuse me? Absolutely. But porn, mainstream or not, I respect his right to express himself, and he’s been a great example of what can be accomplished in American business. No one can predict the future, but my hope is that Lucas continues to evolve and contribute, and some day in the future, if you have faith, only God will be left to make judgement.
What’s with all the anti-semitic comments on here? I find it very alarming. I don’t think these types of hateful comments should be allowed. They should be moderated out. A post about an ebay auction selling items from a well-known celebrity isn’t the place for a bunch of vicious religious and political rhetoric, even if it earns the site a few extra hits for a day or two.
I cannot agree with any of the anti-semitic comments made on this website, while I am not Jewish, I abhor discrimination based on religion (this includes you Michael Lucas and your -blatant- anti Islamic agenda) as much as every gay man detests being discriminated against based on their sexuality.
I personally find Mr. Lucas to be a deplorable human being not so much for his choice of career (the beauty of an open market is anyone can do whatever they want to make a buck, and more power to them, though admittedly when they make it on the backs of cheap labor, be that Malaysian children or hot eastern European 18 year olds it becomes slightly less applaudable) more so for his politics.
I do not have to be anti-semitic or for that matter a zionist to realize that unilaterally supporting any single faction in an ongoing blood feud (and lets not mince words here) where both sides have committed atrocities of both the pen and the sword will only lead to further blood and a further embedding of hatred within both cultures. Before I go into a full on treatise on the issues plaguing Israeli Palestinian relations I’ll stop myself, this is queerty after all, and I find it somewhat odd that someone who seemingly has such deeply entrenched hatred in his heart (that would be you Mr. Lucas) for one group, would be surprised to find such hatred returned back upon you (though perhaps admittedly in a different form)
While I do not always agree with the editorial staff at this magazine on a great many matters, both trite and important, I wholeheartedly agree with their verdict that you need to get over yourself. Celebrity has not, should not, and with any luck will continue to not be an acceptable enough reason to spout off personal views on anything other than your chosen profession.
Mr. Lucas if you want to speak about the art of properly lighting a penis as it is inserted into an us so that there is a minimum of camera glare, by all means knock yourself out, but just because you are a millionaire (and kudos for you for getting there) porn star does not mean that you get to shovel your hate filled propaganda down our throats, and expect us to be greatful for it. Further I find it deplorable that we as gay men are so easily brought into such low minded discourse as to use such hate speech towards one another.
I rarely respond on Queerty, but I would have felt remiss if I did not say something.
p.s. you look trashy in those jeans.
Michael is an industrious business man, not a miserly Shylock by any stretch of the imagination. These anti-Jewish comments are deplorable and set the hatred cauldron in this country to boil.
Lucas Entertainment Staff
To the “editor” Andrew Belonsky,
A few points about all of this ugly and disturbing discussion that is going on your site.
First, you are saying that Michael Lucas is irrelevant, yet your search engine will show that, you sir, made over 80 postings about Michael Lucas in just 2 years!!! Always hateful and nasty, but no less, there are over 80 postings about the man you call irrelevant. You sir, are a hypocrite. A classic hypocrite, and if anything, you are obsessed with Michael Lucas, just as a few of your readers, who keep posting the same comments about his looks using different aliases. So it is not Michael Lucas who should get over himself, it is you who should get over Michael Lucas.
Today you emailed directly to “irrelevant” Michael Lucas at least four times, you called him a â€œhommieâ€(!) and accused him of making grammar mistakes in his comments. You are well aware that Michael Lucas came to this country ten years ago without any English skills, so I believe he is doing well for himself. Michael speaks three languages. How many languages can you manage, Mr. Belonsky? And let’s not even start talking about your writing; it’s poor at best. And that is quite embarrassing for someone who had a privilege to be born and educated in this country. You should stop trying to be Perez Hilton, You have neither the imagination nor the knowledge for such success.
Michael came to this country with nothing and built the biggest adult company on the east coast. He is on the covers of hundreds magazines all over the world, and the press cannot get enough of him. He lectures in the most prestigious American universities. He is invited to all the most glamorous events. He has great friends from all fields of life, from famous actors to writers to fashion designers, and from lawyers to doctorsâ€¦ the list is long. He brought his entire family to the United States and gave them a great life. This is what is called the American dream.
Now, what did you achieve? To be the editor of a tacky online blog? A blog that before you took over was smart and entertaining and now is labeled as “toxic to the gay community” by magazines like V and has lost all its advertisers and readership since? What are your accomplishments? What do you have to offer other than these hateful postings that you accumulate throughout the day? You should be truly embarrassed of yourself, your blog, and your “career.â€ In comparison to Michael, you are nothing but a loser.
Letâ€™s not mention the anti-Semites that youâ€™ve attracted to this site. You are a magnet for the worst kind.
PS – It’s funny that Michael Lucas seems to be the only one who generates any kind of dicussion on your website. Always over 30 comments compared to the average 2-3 for your other postings.
There is a big danger that #33 (Ryan) is crazy. So Michael Lucas can only talk about dick? He has no right to talk about anything else than sex? So Angelina Jolie can not talk about poverty in Africa? And Barbara Streisand can not support Bill Clinton? And Oprah can not endorse Obama? And Sean Penn&Co can not talk against the war in Iraq? And Marlene Dietrich should have not spoken against Nazism? The power of celebrity can not be underestimated. And if you don’t understand this simple reality, then it’s probably you who should not comment on any issues except your job. So don’t comment on Michael Lucas. OK?
I agree with Mr. Lucas, actually, both that the comments on this site are consistently bitter and decidely unimaginative and unfunny, and that the lack of reaction to plainly anti-semetic comments is unfortunate. I just wonder if there is any connection between this story and Meg Whitman’s resignation from EBay. Cause you just know they got a letter from Michael complaining in detail about the user experience and hassles of accepting PayPal…
Celebrity is not an exscuse to mouth vehemence, nor should we accept the words or advice of anyone simply because they are a celebrity, over the advice of any other human being. I do not speak to the fact that we should not listen to celebrities but only recognize that what they are famous for may have no connection with what they are preaching about.
Whom would you trust a lecture on the theory of advance quantum physics? Stephen Hawking or Madonna? Who would you rather discuss the sociological mating rituals of the great apes with Jane Goodall or Michael Jackson?
I am not saying that Celebrities cannot voice their opinions only that we should take them with a grain of salt, if at all in particular when they use their celebrity to voice beliefs that have nothing to do with what they are famous for. For every good case (Bono) there is a bad one (Tom Cruise).
I personally don’t think that propagating a zionist and self admittedly hateful agenda qualifies as a good one.
call me crazy. (oh you already did)
Oh – be nice to Andre. It is very hard to be so young, rich and beautiful with a naturally pouty expression.
Maybe Richard cut his allowance and he can’t really afford all those Alexander McQueen togs that he flounces up and down 23rd Street.
I sincerely hope he graces us with his presence of Fire Island this summer, it has never been the same without him.
I long for the days of a played out, fashionably dressed, cracked out, porn star lying face down in the sand after falling off the boardwalk half naked.
New member here, so looking forward to seeing some fun new pieces. But I just landed on a page that you must certainly have published on April Fool’s Day: the Michael Lucas page in which you describe his eBay items. All of that is fine, but what repels me—deeply so—is the tenor and savagery of the remarks your (now, my) fellow blog readers have posted about Michael. First, who is Author #17 (Marcus)? As a Mixed Martial Artist, I would be honored to stand face to face with him and have him repeat his stunningly anti-Semitic comments to me about Mr. Lucas. Whether you like or loathe Lucas—or Rupert Murdoch, or Janice Dickinson—he is a force to be reckoned with and has made a huge success of a career that began with nothing, and has earned money with actors who signed contracts willingly and knowingly (so, if there are no royalty payments, the actors knew that in advance). But the “cheap Jew” and “fuckin’ shrewd Jew” (with the cowboy’s “fuckin'”)??? Where does this hatred come from, but more important, why are you permitting it on your site? I hope you’ll agree that censureship is anti-American and that we have a right to say what we’re thinking, but we also have protection against hate crimess—a felony in the USA—and your blog is, technically and legally, a forum for veiled, implied, and explicitly articulated hate crimes. We are brothers, white and black and asian and latino, and have genuine strength together. Lucas’s movies generate income within our market; he employs hundreds of people; I would imagiine he pays huge taxes; and, moreover, would never dream of calling a Christian (like myself) a “fuckin’ Christ lover.” You need to vet your postings very carefully, because you are at risk, effective immediately, for being reported (by me, by others) of tolerating, promoting, and encouraging hate crimes and hate language. You also appear to be stalking Mr. Lucas, another federal crime. Regardless of your corporate structure, these felonies pierce the corporate veil and can land you in prison, regardless of and INC. or LLC after your company name. My family owns one of the largest online t-shirt companiess and we, too, have postings on our blog site. We vet the postings for hate language, physical threats, and so on, but encourage open and free comments about our designs, our talents or ineptitudes, etc. We would notify writers such as #17 that he is out of line with all sense of respect and fairness toward others, and if he pestered us, we would report him to law-enforcement authorities, which you are in jeopardy of being yourself. Do think about this, please, since as a new subscriber, I’d love to engage in good, healthy, productive conversations—-but about “a cheap Jew?” Marcus, you can go fuck yourself (we permit “fuck” on our own web site and Mr. Lucas permits fucking in his videos). Grab the closest mirror, look at your filthy, vile, rodent face, and confess to your Almighty Lord, whoever that unlucky entity may be, and beg forgiveness, because you are about to be knocked in the face by law enforcement.

I don’t understand all of this contempt for Michael Lucas. You may not think he is handsome (I do) but he does a lot to be admired. He came to America from another country and is living the American Dream, more so than most of us. He is hard working and built a company from the ground up. Isn’t this something to be admired? He us unashamedly out and isn’t scared to say so. He is political and is an advocate for safe-sex and drug-free living. He has bought ads in magazines like the Advocate, not to sell his videos, but to urge our community to take better care of ourselves by having safe sex.
He is smart, political, creative and involved in the community. As a filmmaker he doesn’t exploit us, he IS us.
Sure, he’s not perfect. But who is. But what is his crime? Selling clothes on eBay? Living in a country absolutely corrupt leadership, it is hard for me to muster up any kind of venom towards a man like Michael Lucas. To the contrary, I see him as a sex-positive and fearless member of our community. I wish we had more like him.
What’s all the drama here?
At one point, Lucas himself is vehemently anti-Muslim and has spoken out atrocious, racist and vile garbage about Muslims. Yet when he receives the same treatment based on his background, he has to come out and play the victim card.
I only have this to say: Pot MEET kettle.
