The Larue Interview (sort of)
Earlier this week and I tried to engage Chi Chi Larue in a conversation on Twitter because I had a few serious questions for the gender bender, weight dropping, porn impresario. The fact that I received any reply at all was surprising as my willingness to tell the truth in a sassy, no holds bar way, seems to have landed me in the similar position as Rachel Maddow of MSNBC. (Everyone knows that republicans are afraid to go on her show because they know she’s a formidable opponent, they think ignoring her will make her go away)… I thought I would post that interview on my website so that people can see what his responses are:
Chase Coxxx: “‘Black Meat White Heat’ makes me want to snatch your dirty dishwater blonde wig every time I come across that title. but as long as it makes money who cares if it perpetuates a stale stereotype of blk men as sexual savage objects 4 white men?”
Chi Chi Larue: “You hate it!?”
Chase Coxxx: “It’s no different than thug porn except it’s blk on wht instead of blk on blk. We need a new narrative. We can be sensual too”
Chi Chi Larue: “total, i dont know if you have seen all my interracial movies but really i’m all over the board. ask anyone that has worked”
Chase Coxxx:“The title. I just think there are better ways to showcase the sexuality of gay black men outside of blk on wht gangbangs. you are creative and you can do better. Show other sides of black men besides that Black Balled crap.”
Chi Chi Larue: “that is not a gang bang movie it’s a love story. My Blackballeds are Gang Bangs….very Hot i might ad xxxo. my characters are never savages honey just horney fuckers!!”
Chase Coxxx: “You should check out the blogs that cater to men of color (not MOC’s blog) & you’ll see how most black gays feel about it.”
Chi Chi Larue: “It’s one of the great porn debates Diesel and I have had many a talk about it!”
Chase Coxxx: “Diesel is part of the problem as he readily accepts the job offers & willingly perpetuates the “blk sexual savage” caricature. I also wanted to know how effective you think your PSA will be in the black and Latin gay communities which have much higher numbers of infections than the tanned, waxed, sometimes roided up boys of WeHo??? Do you really think those two communities which need to hear your message more than ever these days will pay attention to what is said by a bunch of men they don’t identify with? What guy from Inglewood is listening to what Steven Daigle or Jeremy Bilding has to say about safe sex? How many Mexican fags from East LA will your PSA reach? Perhaps you should’ve pulled out the roster from your Black Balled series so you could call those men and ask them to make a PSA. Doing a safe sex PSA using performers that attract a mostly white audience while whites are infected at a far lower rate than people of color, seems like a waste of time. It’s like spending money to build a community center for rich kids who have nannies and big backyards instead of better using your money, time and efforts by building that same community center in a place that truly needs it the most. Any safe sex PSA should be supported, but honestly, take that argument from the choir and go out into the community already. Can you imagine if a thug porn studio head made a PSA using guys like Corn Bread, Slim Thug, Thugzilla, Jovannie, Freakzilla Diego, and Carlito with the goal of reaching the WeHo-ish crowd that you cater to? How effective would it be? Please Reply.“
I’m still waiting on a response to my last set of questions. I know that Chi Chi has received them because he started to follow my Twitter account after my initial question. I retweeted the question a short while later, it seems like the one question that couldn’t be answered in a tongue in cheek way was totally ignored. How shocking being that Chi Chi has sooo much passion for the advocacy of safer sex, so much so that he is known to throw bitchfits and other people’s microphones in public settings over the highly debated subject. I’m sure that most people by now have seen Chi Chi’s PSA campaign ‘Shut Your Hole’, but some of you may not be aware that most of the men in the PSA have current or past bareback careers, are HIV poz and/or have online profiles where they openly seek out bareback sex. Seems like the condom diva would be against employing anyone who doesn’t agree with or practice her policies. WeHo is a small area, it’s not hard to keep up with what these models are doing. Anyone with a laptop, some objectivity, motivation and at least one working eye can keep track of what’s going on.
If you take a look at the performers that Chi Chi hires, you will see that a good number have barebacking past and/or are currently moonlighting on the bareback scene. Long gone are the days when being in bareback movies was a scarlet letter of shame that prevented models from getting mainstream work. I myself just shot a condom scene during Folsom Fair weekend. Still, a lot (NOT ALL) of pornstars are fake, phony bitches who say one thing in public and do another in private. Some may say that what’s done in private is of no one else’s business and I agree with this, but if you subscribe to the narrative that making bareback movies influences small town folk, young people and others who are sexually ignorant, then you should be concerned with the off screen activities as the risk and danger is still the same.
