Whose Israel Trip Will Score Better Yelp Reviews?: Josh Wood v. Michael Lucas

Back in January we noted how two gay powerhouses were facing off for your Israeli travel dollars: Both porn proprietor Michael Lucas and nightlife producer Josh Wood are organizing gay-themed trips to the Holy Land. But would it have made sense for the twosome to work together?

It sounds like they tried.

“We spoke with Michael last fall about developing a film component to our trip,” Wood says. “I guess he thought it was such a good idea that he decided to do his own.” Zing!

Uhm … not so much, retorts Lucas, whose pre-porn career included a stint as a travel agent back in Russia. Once Men of Israel began generating buzz—including a shout-out on Chelsea Lately, an L.A. Times write-up and endless blog-bursts—Lucas says that guest-starring in Wood’s Israel production didn’t really make sense. “Once I did the numbers, I just realized they needed me more than I needed them.”

“I love that Josh is doing a trip,” Lucas adds. “My goal is to show as many people as possible Israel’s other side, the non-propaganda side.”

Ahem. Non-propaganda?

  • hardmannyc

    Well, Josh is certainly hotter.

    What exactly consists of the non propaganda side? The continuing settlements? 2nd class treatment of Palestinians? Which side exactly?

    Israel = apartheid state.

    Lucas = most repellent creature in Chelsea, and that’s saying something.

  • Dmitriy


    whether there is an apartheid system in the west bank is unquestionable, but to say that it is a state built upon a apartheid policies is false: there is no apartheid in Israel proper.

    I used to do door for Josh and he’s not only super cute but super nice too.

    Is Michael Lucas still alive? He wears more make-up than a corpse prepared by a mortician. Send him back to Putin.

    I resent porn types cashing in on the “gay” concept. Gay doesn’t mean porn. Please keep porn out of the gay concept. Porn is porn, not gay.


    Oh God Jason just sniff some poppers, troll a bookstore back room and shut the fuck up already.

    You are the biggest douche nozzle ever.

    Michael Lucas should try marching in one of the Israeli gay Pride parades that keeps getting canceled or flooded with cops shutting it down religious controlled country.
