Sebastian Young Shock: “Monster” Michael Lucas Sexually Harassed Me, Then Begged Me To Fuck An HIV-Positive Model Bareback

Posted April 20, 2015 by with 96 comments

sebmichaelThe horror stories from people who have worked for Michael Lucas and Lucas Entertainment are endless. Just look at the “2014 Michael Lucas Year In Review” if you need a reminder. And it’s hard to believe, but none of those 2014 entries can compare to what gay porn star Sebastian Young is coming forward with today.

Over the weekend, Sebastian Young approached Str8UpGayPorn to apologize for his hostile tweets last week, and he also wanted to share what happened to him while working on a recent Michael Lucas bareback movie in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From sexual harassment and bizarre behavior to non-payment and pairing of serodiscordant models in bareback scenes, what Michael Lucas and his increasingly troubled studio did to Sebastian Young, if true, isn’t just a horror story, it’s potentially illegal.

What follows is a slightly edited (for grammar and clarity) transcript of Str8UpGayPorn’s chat with Sebastian Young yesterday.

Str8UpGayPorn: Hi Sebastian. Why don’t you start from the beginning. You were hired to perform in a movie for Michael Lucas and Lucas Entertainment in Florida, right?
Sebastian Young: Yes, I recently filmed for him in Fort Lauderdale. We worked out a price, and since it’s my home state, I decided to drive, and he agreed to pay for my travel expenses.

What was the scene rate?
I can’t get into that for legal reasons and his contracts, but before I left to drive down there he asked the most stupid question ever. He asked, “Will you film with a positive model?” Of course I declined, but he was so persistent about this. Nothing against positive people, but it’s not a chance I want to take.

Michael Lucas routinely tries to pair positive and negative models together in bareback scenes, even when they don’t want to. So what happened next?
I drove down there and met up with him, and then had to indulge him and his whole make-believe life. I listened to his boring stories, his lame opinions, and I fought hard to keep my mouth shut. The more I listened to him, I soon found out that he was pairing models with different statuses for this movie.

But I thought you had already told him you preferred to work with a negative model? What were you thinking or feeling at this point?
How do you think I was feeling about this idiot I had to deal with? I was fighting so hard to hold it all back, because I had a lot riding on this trip, and I invested so much time and money. I didn’t want to mess it up. Michael Lucas made broken promises to other models to get them to sign on for the movie, and they fell for it. But my scene partner was negative. I saw his test results for myself, and they were up to date.

You had tweeted earlier that Michael Lucas tried his “damnedest” to “get his way.” What did you mean?
The first night of my arrival, Michael had me stay at this dirt bag house where he was staying, too. I tried to do my own thing that night and keep to myself, and he knew I was not into him at all, but he was really pushing himself on me.

Physically?
Yeah, Michael tried to fuck me. I wasn’t having it, but he kept trying over and over, and so finally I just let him jack off. I felt like a victim of harassment. He actually wanted me to tuck my cock between my legs and repeatedly yell the words, “Fuck my pussy!” Gay or not, that was weird. It ended with him cumming all over himself. And then after, he kept sneaking back into my room acting like he forgot something. He is a real creep.

Was that all that happened that night?
He was still really trying to convince me that I couldn’t contract HIV from topping or bottoming bareback. That’s bullshit! He really wanted me to believe it though.

And then the next day you did your scene?
Yeah, I completed my scene as usual and requested my payment. But he didn’t even have checks to pay his models. He said, “The check will be in the mail.” As an old school model, I know it doesn’t work like that. Eventually he agreed to pay me while I was in town, but later that night he pulled me to the side and asked if he could pay me some now, then mail me the rest. I felt bad for him. The way he approached me was like a sad puppy. I gave in and asked for a small amount to travel back home with, and I’d wait on the check.

Did the check come?
He really made me bug him about over emails, but finally a check came in the mail. And just as I thought, I was shorted the money for my travels, which he had promised to pay.

So, I take it you won’t be working for Michael Lucas and Lucas Entertainment again?
Being in the industry for almost 11 years, I have encountered a lot of different souls. Never in my life have I encountered a creature like Michael Lucas. He is a a narcissist who has sold his soul to the Devil. And the reason I am writing this is to save as many people as possible from this MONSTER.

Thanks for coming forward.
Thank you for taking the time to listen. And to all my fans, thank you for being loyal.

 

If you’ve been a victim of sexual harassment involving Michael Lucas, or if you’d like to share what your experience was like working with Lucas Entertainment, please get in touch.

 

  • Bob Bilbert

    What’s more shocking than ML’s treatment of his model’s is Sebastian Young’s HIV neg status.

    That aside…He was in two movies… Christopher Daniels’ Bareback Premiere and Lucas Barebackers.. So…several of the ones in LB must be poz…

  • Alan Keddie

    Oh, please. Another day, another horrific gay porn scandal. But dat ass! Check out dat bubble butt!

  • Alex Norman

    Rocco Steele, who is publicly positive, did a scene with Tomas Brand. And the latter also did a scene with Michael Lucas.

    • Pearl Clutcher

      http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/basics/prep.html

      It’s called PrEP. Welcome to it.

      • Sorry Pearl Clutcher, but every tablet of Truvada on earth isn’t enough for me to consider BB with a poz guy. It’s 2015 and for some people undetectable still means HIV+.

        • Pearl Clutcher

          Oh, of course. Some ppl can’t live w/taking a 1% or 8% chance of contracting HIV. I get it.

          • Why would I (or anyone negative) take even the slightest chance of getting HIV?

          • Pearl Clutcher

            Bc sex feels good. Bc we want to connect with someone we love. Bc with new therapies it now possible to Bb with relatively low risk – about the same risk as using condoms.

          • I’ll pass. Blowjobs feel great. So does sex with condoms. So do Fleshlights. So does jacking off. I’m not taking pills so I can fuck poz dudes raw. I’m not taking any advice about HIV prevention that includes unsafe sex with poz guys. And if a poz dude wanted me to fuck him raw, he’d get a first class ticket to as far the fuck away from me as possible. Someone who truly loved me wouldn’t take a 1 – 8% chance of infecting me. The fact that we’re even discussing this is lunacy. I’m happy Prep is an option for guys that choose to take it. But as a neg guy that wants to remain so, I’m going to use other prevention methods.

          • Pearl Clutcher

            Good for you! Meanwhile others choose differently. I’m glad there are porn actors out there willing to deal w/the relatively low risk that they’ll contract HIV during a porn shoot – as long as what they do is hot!

          • Are you a troll? I’m starting to fell like I’m being trolled. Low risk is still risk and how fucked in the head does someone have to be to have such a cavalier attitude about HIV transmission. I don’t know your status, but being glad porn stars put themselves at risk by shooting magnetic scenes because they’re on Prep is sick. You and Paul Morris should hang out.

          • Seaguy

            No one is trolling you, you are just being completely judgemental and shaming those who do not hold your same views regarding HIV and sex with HIV+ partners.

          • WhimsyCotton

            As opposed to trivializing the seriousness of HIV? Oh psha “it’s JUST a 1-8% chance with PrEP” Are you fucking kidding me? Those odds are ridiculously high and not something that is merely dismissed as if it were a cold the way Pearl Clutcher makes it sound.
            People who are so desperate for raw sex that they dismiss such rates as non issues deserve to be not only shamed but ridiculed for their short sighted stupidity. That and their willingness to be lab rats for the pharmaceutical industry is something that must be truly inspirational for their stockholders.

          • Pearl Clutcher

            But…using condoms there’s still a 5-10% risk of contracting HIV. And I’m sure you don’t judge ppl who choose to use condoms when having serodiscordant sex, right? LOL

          • False. Reread my posts. I said I’m happy Prep is a tool for those that choose to take it. My only view regarding HIV is I don’t want it. My only view regarding sex with poz guys is condoms will be used every time, period. What others do to remain neg is up to them. Abstinence, sero-sorting, oral only, condoms only and Prep are just a few tools available to us to use and each individual get to choose his/her tools based on his/her comfort level. There was no shaming in my post. And is shaming the new bullying? It’s overuse is becoming yawn inducing and it’s being misused here. My issue with PC was his taking issue with Sebastian Young not wanting to do a BB scene with a poz guy. Sorry, for some of us Prep isn’t an excuse to BB Poz dudes. Kudos to those that will, but those of us that won’t aren’t sex negative or shaming anyone. And before you tell me I need to educate myself, I’M STILL NEGATIVE. Maybe I should be doing the educating. A poz guy telling me that it’s OK to BB him because he’s undetectable is like a tweeker telling me meth isn’t that dangerous and there’s only an 1-8% chance I’ll get addicted.

          • Pearl Clutcher

            I’d totally hang w/Paul Morris. Especially if he’s buying!

        • BLACKjackHAMMER

          Abaca there is NO one in my life right now that I would even remotely consider BB with !

        • Seaguy

          Well you’re entitled to be that way but not everyone is. Some have educated themselves on the risk involved when it comes to having bb sex with a poz guy who is undetectable and are willing to take that risk.

          • Kalib Butler

            Some people are just stupid…

      • Guest

        Duh. It’s 2015. I’m gay and sexually active. Of course I’m well aware of PrEP and the concept of viral loads.

        But can you honestly say that, even with the poz having an undetectable VL and the neg being on PrEP, there’s zero chance of HIV transmission? Undetectable VL doesn’t mean you’re neg. You’re still infectious since the virus is still in your body. And PrEP doesn’t guarantee 100% protection. That’s why Michael Lucas’ serodiscordant pairing made the headline.

        • Pearl Clutcher

          There’s a 1% to 8% chance of transmission of HIV in that situation.

          • Alex Norman

            So you admitted there’s a chance, albeit a small one, of contracting HIV. What exactly are we arguing about here?

            My problem is not with barebacking. I’m not gonna claim that condoms are better when it comes to preventing HIV transmission. They do have a failure rate. But in condom porns, actors aren’t required to be screened for their statuses (I think). Nobody really knows who’s got the virus. This is different cos you know full well who’s poz and who’s neg. By pairing them up like this, you’re deliberately making the negs play Russian roulette. I’m sorry but I’m just not ok with that.

          • Pearl Clutcher

            Are they? Playing RR? Where there is a 1% to 8% chance they will contract a manageable disease that is unlikely to be terminal? RR? Lol. Again, it’s 2015 not 1985 or even 1995.

            Btw, I brought this up bc of your original reply where you were confused about undetectable actor Rocco barebacking with a neg actor. In 2015 that’s not “confusing” to ppl like us who understand the low risk of transmission in that circumstance. So of course I assume you were trolling as this blog tends to when it comes to unreasonable and unnecessary HIV panic.

          • Alex Norman

            Unnecessary HIV panic? It stays with you for life. You have to stay on top of your health at the cost of extra medical bills. And even then, complications can still occur. The drugs come with potentially dangerous side effects. You’ll sometimes be denied jobs. And in this day and age, HIV is still heavily stigmatized. People react a lot differently when they hear “I have HIV” than “I have type 2 diabetes.”

            Yes, the life expectancy is much higher. But why would anyone trade all those lifelong burdens for a stupid bareback sex? There are absolutely no pros. Just short-lived sexual gratification and a lot of permanent cons. 1-8% is not worth taking the risk. And it’s reasonable and necessary to be panicked about.

          • Pearl Clutcher

            LOL. And I don’t give a shit about any of that when I watch porn. Like, at all. If these dudes decide to take on the relatively low risk of contracting a manageable chronic disease I don’t care. If they were contracting HIV on screen I don’t care. That’s their choice. As long as their performance is hot that’s all that matters. And no, their adult decisions that are beyond my control are not worth any amount of panic.

          • Alex Norman

            Oh…

            Alrighty then. Thanks for clearing things up.

          • Eric D

            LOL? You are the problem! You are a vile, useless, scourge among gay men. Your selfish, as long as I get off attitude will be your demise. I hope you have long life as a bitter, lonely, depraved, queen!!!!!!

          • Pearl Clutcher

            Thanks, Eric! I will do my best, pal.

      • Alex Norman

        It’s 2015. I’m gay and sexually active. Of course I’m well aware of PrEP and the concept of viral loads.

        But can you honestly say that, even with the poz having an undetectable VL and the neg being on PrEP, there’s zero chance of HIV transmission? Undetectable VL doesn’t mean you’re neg.

  • BoomPow

    With all the horror stories surrounding Michael Lucas, I don’t understand why anybody would even consider working with him. It’s like making a deal with the devil. I’ve never had a high opinion of Sebastian Young, but he earned a few points with me for stepping forward and speaking out. It’s risky to speak out against the studios when you rely on them to earn a living. Sometimes, enough is enough, and the shady practices the talent is being subjected to needs to be exposed in order to prevent it from happening in the future.

    Michael Lucas is single handedly ruining porn for me. Anybody that goes to work for him instantly loses their appeal with me and I’m permanently turned off by anybody that lets him fuck them. (Vomit.). There’s a long list of guys that I once thought were hot and are now dead to me. I’m looking at you Dato Foland.

    • Drakken

      This happens to me too, I don’t know how he does it, but he makes hot guys lookboring, and the camerawork is sub-par at best.

  • DrunkEnough

    It’s hard to believe a guy that was just issuing veiled death threats against you suddenly has your interests at heart and is telling you the truth. I can’t stand Duckface and wouldn’t put a thing past him, but based on what I’ve read of Young, Ima wait and see if the stuff he says to you actually holds water.

    • AlexK12

      Yeah, I’m with you there. I mean, a week ago the guy was crazy and unstable and now with this allegation his words are valid?

      Curiouser, and curiouser.

    • Agreed DrunkEnough…Sebastian needed a venue to tell his story and you Zach were it…

      • dickhead

        Even if this is all made up, Michael Lucas has over a decade of these types of stories to paint him as exactly the type of person Sebastian said he was. So, like Bill Cosby, either everyone else is crazy or there’s truth to the accusations.

  • Casey Scott

    Did he not have any stories about Dallas Reeves being scummy, too?

  • Nick

    Get Dato’s ass out of that studio and then burn it all down.

    • Kevin

      I don’t think Dato is filming porn anymore, his website is offline and he doesn’t tweet anymore. He’s supposed to be married to Abraham Al Malek but if you take a look at his IG he seems to be dating Willie Gomez, who’s a model and a dancer for Britney Spears.

      • Nick

        Honestly wouldn’t mind it if he doesn’t go back to porn (for any studio) so long as he’s not with LE. I’m good with that I guess. And this goes out to all of em bunch who got duped into working there. So we can move on to the burning part, yes?

      • sxg

        Dato is probably a green card dater. Isn’t he formally from Russia? That could be the reason he married Abraham Al Malek, to gain residency in Spain or all of the EU since Russia is not a part of all that. And now he’s making his way to the states.

        • Kevin

          His twitter page says he’s Georgian but born and raised in Russia. I always thought that marriage was a scam, there are hardly or no pictures of them together. I wouldn’t be surprised if his new boyfriend doesn’t want him to do porn.

          • sxg

            Yea huge difference in “relationship” between him and Abraham and him and Damien. There were tons of pics for a couple of months on Damien’s IG account with Dato. Then they disappeared. A month later, Dato is married and since those wedding pics there’s been no sign of their relationship.

          • Kevin

            I’m sure that if Dato and Willie were to make their relationship official the authorities would become suspicious. Don’t you need a visum if your going to spend a lot of time in the U.S.A.?

          • sxg

            Anything more than 6 months and you have to file for an extension and a reason for your extension. As a pornstar though he is at risk of being turned back though if he comes here to work without a proper work visa, more likely after his second attempt to return. It happened to Rogan Richards and after a couple of days he was sent back to Europe I think. Also Austin Wolf was turned away from Australia after they found out he escorted.

        • Nick

          He’s still pretty though haha. Don’t exactly know everything about why they called it quits but was there any nasty stuff thrown at Dato by Abraham himself? I really can’t remember anything. This either means (1) Abraham was in on it because he’s a genuinely nice person; (2) he wasn’t in on it but decided to keep mum about a deeply personal matter, how very gracious of him; (3) oooor I’m spot on with my disclaimer haha

        • drumblair

          lol.

  • Stanlee

    Red flags all over this story. As always with Young, there are half truths in his spin. I agree that Lucas and his brand of business management are on no way desirable. I also know for a fact that DallasReeves owes Young money and that is partially the reason for their fall out. I also know that Young and Baileey did have sex outside of filming and the stories of his status persist today.
    I am left wondering if he lied about those issues, what else has been spun if not t totally fabricated.

    • Kevin

      Who’s Baileey?

      • Stanlee

        Co- owner and agent of Dallasreeves. This studio has been under fire from it’s treatment of models and none payment ironically just like Lucas Entertainment.

        • Kevin

          Thank you, i just found a picture of him and i think Young could do better. Maybe a stupid question but why would Young sleep with him outside of filming, isn’t he straight?

          • Stanlee

            No

          • Kevin

            He’s not straight? I thought he had a wive/girlfriend and a daughter.

          • Stanlee

            Young is a self described bisexual. He has admitted to having past relationships with men and has had sex with owner’s and models from shoots outside of filming.

          • RedScarab

            that poor poor woman…he beats the shit out of her on a regular basis AND he likes fucking dudes?

          • DAYUM!

      • NickDC

        Bailey is the gentleman on the left (the one who is not O.J. Simpson or Johnnie Cochran):

  • Alias74

    Oh man….does that mean Bryce Evans got taken for a ride too?????

  • C A

    Ihave noticed in his scenes that he tells the models to tell him to “Fuck My Pussy”. I think it is a way to emasculate the G4P models. Having them refer to their asses as pussies. That’s some shit right there.

    • TreasureTrail

      Bottoms are playing the female role so it doesn’t surprise me, along with mangina, manc–t, etc. It’s not like these are normal people anyway. I don’t think a woman would appreciate her man calling her clitoris a penis or her breasts pecs.

  • loyalty888

    I don’t doubt that ML is a shitty guy. What boggles me is how he’s still able to get so many gay porn stars to go bb (Dato Foland, Thomas Brand, Bryce Evans, Sean Duran) and other hot guys in general when he’s so irresponsible with their health.

    • sxg

      I think a lot of it has to do with beginner’s “luck” for him. It isn’t until after a few scenes that he starts fucking up his relationship with his models. duckface it seems tries to see how far he can push his limits on his models until they get up and leave, quietly or otherwise.

    • TreasureTrail

      $$$$$

    • Dutch Courage

      That’s because many gay porn models don’t read this blog, are desperate for money, erronously think that Lucas Entertainment is a “top studio”, are already HIV+ and don’t care who they fuck etc. etc. etc.

    • BLACKjackHAMMER

      Loyality I agree in what you are saying but I think the guys that are willing to BB for DUCK FACE Lucas ( or any studio for that matter ) are even more irresponsible for their health than he is !!

  • GN

    ….

  • Anders

    This wreaks of the same shit you pulled at TheSword that got you canned. Someone threatened to kick your ass for being human garbage factory, and suddenly you make nice with them so long as they have something derogatory to say about Lucas? Hmm.

  • NickDC

    Shocking that the same Michael Lucas who in Gay Times issue 394, page 48 states
    “bareback porn is essentially pushing young men to suicide” has changed his views so dramatically…

  • Texas Top

    “he asked the most stupid question ever. He asked, “Will you film with a positive model?” Of course I declined.”

    The most stupid question ever is asking you to have sex with an HIV+ guy?

    What. A. Dick.

    • Andre

      If he’s doing bareback porn and is negative, why is he a dick for not wanting to bareback with a poz performer?

    • Entropyguy

      Undetectable HIV+ people are pretty safe to have bareback sex with, but I can’t blame someone for not wanting to roll the dice on an unfamiliar partner.

      • You would have to rely on their word that they are “undetectable”. A person serious about protecting their health wouldn’t do this.

  • sxg

    I kind of wish this interview started with apologies just like your interview with Billy Santoro after your fallout, it would make Sebastian far more believable. If he makes his way to the Grabbys, please take a pic with him to ensure you cunts are on good terms! 😉

    Now onto what he said: I believe there are some truths to this, and the character assessment of duckface goes along with what so many others have mentioned before. But I do wish this came from a more credible and socially responsible pornstar. This isn’t the first time he’s worked with a controversial studio, and after Brenner Bolton’s interview it’s hard not to take into account that whatever fallout he had with duckface is partially due to him and his attitude. But…

  • TreasureTrail

    “He is a a narcissist who has sold his soul to the Devil.” That applies to all people working in porn. Sebastian(or whatever your name is), you should file charges, although being in porn so long you’ve seen and done mostly everything, so it’s going to be rather difficult to prove anything you deem pervy. Michael Lucas is one of those loons who doesn’t have HIV but takes Truvada anyway. The idea behind it is Truvada+condoms but the condom part isn’t really happening.

  • Anders

    The amount of comments you’ve deleted on this post is very telling.

  • John

    Seriously???? Just look at that ass and tell me how you can blame Lucas for wanting to fuck that? I mean you have to ask at least 3-4 times before you apologize and say your sorry and how unprofessional it was for you to do that….but damn I would have followed that up with can I just have a lick then?????/

  • Scrapple

    There’s probably some truths sprinkled in there, but I find it hard to believe Sebastian would be so diplomatic about all of these shenanigans. Zach asks a question about Dallas Reeves, and Bash is ready to ring the alarm. Lucas keeps him in a crappy house, tries to sample the merchandise, tries to pair him with a positive model, gave him a partial payment and then doesn’t send the agreed upon sum, and Sebastian took all this in stride? Did Sebastian find Jesus?

    • Stanlee

      You make a great point. If this incident happened over a week ago, why the drama as late as last night? Young is not known for his patience.

    • Kalib Butler

      He might have actually took a moment to think and realize that the usual response was not the way to go. It happens…

  • Zealot

    Church Lady speculating on Michael Lucas’ major influences….

  • BLACKjackHAMMER

    I cannot stand DUCK FACE Lucas and NOTHING about this pathetic excuse of a human being surprises me however Sebastian Young is no poster boy for doing the right thing Maybe I am wrong but I cannot help from thinking of that old saying that birds of feather flock / FUCK together .!!!

  • Pearl Clutcher

    Is this info supposed to make Lucas movies less hot?

  • Eric D

    First and foremost a porn model who for (small amount of money) have bareback sex with anyone positive or not speaks volumes about the model. Clearly, you DO NOT GIVE a shit about your health and well being so why act surprise that your pimp Michael Lucas, does not give a shit if you live or die! As gay men we seriously have to change the narrative to self-love, preservation of health and well being, which are far more important than 5 minutes of pleasure and an extremely small amount of money.

  • shidinja .

    How can you look at that picture and not immediately forgive that gorgeous man for those silly threats? Poor poor Sebastian, it must have been horrible being harassed by that disgusting Michael Lucas. It’s frightening that I’m not sure if I’m being sarcastic about the first sentence or not. Beauty is too powerful a tool.

  • allen

    There is absolutely no doubt that the professionalism of Lucas Entertainment and Dallasreeves has been repeatedly called onto question in regards to the HIV statuses of it’s performers. Why the hell would Young continue to put his wife’s health ay risk?

    • allen

      Thanks Nicole. I get it. The wife must be out of the picture or cheated on because he is on FB I assume to arrange IM hookups. Sorry about your friend.

  • Seaguy

    Michael Lucas should have gotten in touch with Dallas Reeves while he was in Florida it sounds like they would be great business partners.

  • I have worked for Michael Lucas recently and he is a professional, honest, kind person. he always payed me (never heard about missed payements from any of the other models i’ve worked with) and filming for his studio is such a pleasure. i have never been forced do to anything i didn’t want to do. on the contrary, for my experience, models are always respected and treated the best way in a Lucas production.. before, during and after the work. this is it.

  • Michael Gomez

    I tend to side with Sebastian allegations, as I have nothing but disdain for Michael Lucas, as he “literally” stole a once in my life modeling opportunity back in 2006 to appear on TWT Magazine. It’s been (7) I still haven’t forgot about what he did, and never came back from that disappointment. This is not the first time someone else has complained about him

  • n24rc

    I wonder if Vito Gallo will return. His exclusive contract should be up by now with Lucas Studios. He should be free to do work with condom based productions like Titan.

    Test results were negative and, ahem — up-to-date??? Okay — let’s go there, Sebastian — the day after your scene partner gave blood for testing, he was topped by a positive man and is now himself positive. Of course, he was tested recently, and he blithely assumes he is negative and can ‘safely’ engage in negative-negative partner, bareback sex. Get my point, dude? If you’re going to engage in bareback sex, top or bottom, you decrease your chances of contracting HIV via PreP (the antiviral Truvada). Lucas recently extolled the virtues of PreP, hence his decision to take his company bareback. HOWEVER, As for the effectiveness of Truvada — the belief that it is “99% effective” preventing HIV transmission between positive-negative partners is dubious, as researched and reported in a NYTimes article in 2014. Seems to me that Lucas and you are equally moronic.
