UK artist James Richards was exhibiting a video last year titled Not Blacking Out, Just Turning the Lights Off (2011). It includes footage from my video BAD INFLUENCE (2008). From what I can see online, the scene he has borrowed from is Tommy Haine’s hypnosis session. Does anybody have a contact for James? I’m curious to see the rest of his video.
This is an email I received about SLAMMED. “Dear Liam, When I saw the trailer for SLAMMED, I felt a shock–TIM advocating shooting meth in a sex tape? (Although the meth was more implied than seen.)

His message, “Would love to see your blog with my ass pic in it.” Happy to oblige.

This is an email I received about SLAMMED.
When I saw the trailer for SLAMMED, I felt a shock–TIM advocating shooting meth in a sex tape? (Although the meth was more implied than seen.) My brain made little disapproving “cluck-cluck” noises, and I added it to the list of TIM videos I would not be buying.
Later when I was buying other titles, I figured I’d throw in Slammed–after all, your sex videos ARE hot, and surely, the meth-slamming, if it even happened, would be a minor and ignorable portion of the action.
Jon Phelps is hot! But–when I saw his arm stretched out, palm up, in the “shoot-up” position, my heart skipped a beat, and my brain said, “stop this shit. Don’t glorify meth.” My partner’s ex ruined himself, and several other people’s lives, slamming meth. Problem: my cock got stiff and started oozing, at the thought!
As I watched Keiran fuck Jon, the shock wore off, and I really dug the raw chemistry between the two. (No puns intended.) Keiran is really hot, in an animal sort of way. That cock is beautiful. And Keiran knows what I learned a long time ago–eating a thoroughly-fucked, wide-open asshole is a real pleasure.
When the needle came back out, my heart sank. “Oh, no, not more of that, please.” But when Keiran asked Jon if he was feeling the meth rush, and he replied, “I feel nasty,” I nearly shot my wad. Right then and there. My cock stayed rock hard and leaking for the rest of the video. I stopped fast-forwarding at all, since I was digging the frequent comments.
When the group thinned out (exactly how many guys fucked Jon that evening, anyway?) and became a foursome, I was still loving it. When Jon said, after downing some sort of drink, “if I pass out, don’t worry, just fuck me,” well, my cock throbbed and leaked in appreciation. The only reason I hadn’t had an orgasm so far is because I had just jerked off a few hours before putting on the video, and I really didn’t expect to cum again. But when Jon sat his cummy hole down on somebody’s mouth, well, I shot a huge load onto my face, my mustache and beard. Wow. When is the last time that happened? Plus, I kept on watching–another testament to your skill. I NEVER finish a DVD right after I shoot. But it was so nice seeing the hung, commanding top Keiran get fucked. It was nice seeing him get fucked while watching his “boy” Jon get fucked at the same time. And, it was nice seeing the four guys spending so much time kissing while they fuck. Not enough of that in any porn these days.
So: what do I think? That depends on whether you ask my brain or my dick. My dick says, hey, if meth can produce a fuck-crazed boy like Jon and a hot video like Slammed, who the fuck cares? My brain is pissed off. My brain can’t manage the disagreement between my intellect and my libido. My brain says, Fuck you, Liam! My cock says, thanks!
(By the way, the last time I faced this kind of dissonance was when I finally admitted to myself that I really dig the idea of a man sucking off a horse. I went from being terrified of the thought, and my attraction to it, to actually admitting I was really into it. Here’s my favorite example, in case you’re curious. Not great detail, though. You and Paul wouldn’t want to make some high-quality horse-porn, would you? The genre could use improving (evil grin) )”

I was going to write about SLAMMED, but it’s not released until next week (Sept 5) so I’ll wait until people have seen before sharing my notes. Instead, here are some thoughts on the trailer. It went online August 18th and the feedback is split between wild praise (thanks) and thundering chastisements (sorry)
Those in favor say: the men are hot and the sex is awesome.
Those against say: drugs are dangerous and ruin lives.
Obviously, both are right. The sex is hot and drugs are dangerous. What to do? Part of growing up is learning to negotiate life’s complex pleasures. How to do that is up to you, and it’s usually pointless to bitch at others for not making the same choices.
This is why I’m not waging a flame war on the “haters” who say SLAMMED is irresponsible and I should be ashamed of it. I can’t resist reading what they write, even though I never get around to giving a fuck. None of these people have seen the video yet. However, some have made very detailed study of the trailer, and I love that.
For example: one genius at TheSword states that SLAMMED is a video, “in which young men have bareback sex after shooting up crystal meth”. I won’t confirm or deny that, because I hate spoilers. The point is, he makes his (speculative) claim based purely on watching the trailer closely. Very closely, given porn’s supposedly throw-away superficiality.
His post contains an image from the SLAMMED trailer, showing a muscular man holding a hypodermic. He must have gone through frame-by-frame to get this. It’s on-screen for less than one-thirtieth of a second and is barely perceptible at normal speed. Probably I should be angry that he’s making un-substantiated accusations about the guys in SLAMMED, but they’re big lads and not easily offended. Personally, I’m just stoked that someone is intrigued enough by my trailer to forensically dissect it. Maybe because I’m a fan of The Conversation and Blow Up (look them up, youngsters).
Let’s indulge in more trailer analysis.
THE AUDIO: If your wife and kids are in the next room and you’re watching on mute, here’s what you’re missing:
Keiran: “I’m going to do fucked up things with you”
Jon Phelps: “Mm-hm?”
Keiran: “Yeah boy.”
Jon Phelps: “Yeah? … Arrgh … Ohhh fah -”
Unidentified gang-bang guy: “- slammed him –“
(this is the only time the word “slammed” is spoken in the trailer or video)
Various rumbling noises which remind me of the blood rushing in my ears.
Keiran: “Aw, I feel that now.”
Me: “What, the fullness?”
Keiran: “No, the … drugs.”
Clearly this is unscripted. I could never write anything as sexy or funny as Keiran simply being his hot fuckin’ self.
THE VISUAL: 99% of the trailer is intense sweaty fuelled sex between nice-looking genuinely horny men. That accurately reflects the content of the video.
Don’t be fooled by rumours, SLAMMED is not a video guide to getting high. It’s a sex tape. Okay, at 00:17 of the trailer you see Jon chugging something and washing it down with Coke, but it’s not explained and you’re never going to know for sure whether that’s G, a vodka shot, or a nice mineral water. When you see what he does next, you’re not going to care.
