Last week, female porn director Nica Noelle had yet another public meltdown and another public feud with another one of her former performers (this time it was Brent Corrigan; previously it’s been Seth Santoro, Jessie Colter, Billy Santoro, etc.). I covered the story here, and while there’s no question that Nica Noelle has no place in gay porn, the larger “issue” of female gay porn directors in general came up in the comments. Specifically, some of you decided to use the Nica Noelle situation to criticize female gay porn director mr. Pam, which is almost as crazy as Nica Noelle herself. To be clear: There is no comparison between Nica Noelle and mr. Pam.

mr. Pam wrote a lengthy response in the comments on that post, but I didn’t want it to get buried, so I’m re-posting it here in its entirety.

mr. Pam:

oh gawd – so tell me…what do you really think?
I wasn’t going to chime in but this discussion is going in so many different directions…. I just can’t help myself.

First of all, thanks for giving me compliments on my personality. Yes, I’m extremely bubbly – some people love it – some hate it. Oh well… would you rather be around someone melancholy or someone who pretty much loves life and likes to laugh??

I truly LOVE my career – yes, directing, filming, photographing, editing gay male porn. I LOVE gay men and I love sex and expressions of sexuality – so I just happened to land myself a perfect career. I’m extremely lucky that I have been so successful in this male-dominated industry and actually just celebrated my 10 year working full-time in gay porn. Its been an awesome ride and I’m truly blessed to have met all the men I have filmed and gotten to travel to so many exotic places. And yes, even I am shocked sometimes… how the hell did a Catholic school girl end up an award-winning gay porn director? yeah, that’s funny! lol!

I am very proud of the movies I have worked on over career – especially the last 3 years when I headed up the original production film department for NakedSword. We have produced some kick ass movies that vary from hardcore sex loops (Addict) to political movies commenting on gay marriage (The Mix), SF’s nudity ban (Golden Gate 5: The Cover Up), to… yeah, you boys are going to cringe… but autobiographical stories like “Cheaters” and “Stalker”. Most companies these days just throw 2 dudes in a room with a handycam… how much creativity does that take? (especially if they’re not into eachother?!?) We have large scripts, film permits to stage fake ‘rallies’, shoot live scenes with audiences plus I do extensive interviews to try to find GAY GUYS who LOVE SEX and will be fun to film fucking on camera. I go above and beyond to not produce boring porn, but instead making something that’s epic, that the gay community can be proud of and most importantly, gets you guys off!

I put so much passion and love into every movie I shoot, every scene I direct….and yeah, I’ll admit, sometimes they suck. Sometimes the models aren’t into each other, or there’s some issue on the set – like when a model found out his mom had cancer right before we’re shooting him getting pounded. This is the stuff that’s not so ‘sexy’ that we never mention, but its shit that all us porn directors have to deal with and try to get a hot scene. I try to encourage the guys to always do their best – fuck their hardest and put on the best show they can. Whatever you do in life, you should do to the best of your ability… (not to mention because some anonymous commenter on some blog is going to rip them to shreds. See above & below. 😉

I LIVE the gay boy culture… it doesn’t stop for me the minute I put my camera down. I live in the Castro, I’m very involved in my gay community, all my best friends are gay boys, I go to gay sex clubs and photograph gay events, speak on panels and help with benefits. I officially identify as bisexual but more accurately, a gay man because of my community and sex preferences. All that and I just started doing drag – I love it. I love hanging out watching guys fuck & suck each other in the dirty leather bars in San Francisco…and all over the world. I’m not judgemental – I LOVE hearing stories from my slutty friends which more often than not, end up scenarios in my films.

I truly love what I do and I hope the love comes out in my work.
I’d love to chime in more but we have a huge movie coming out tomorrow – NakedSword’s “A Wicked Game” & I have some hot porn to make. I hope you guys watch the movie and I can’t wait to hear what you think.

big hugs… happy humping…
mr. Pam

I worked with mr. Pam at NakedSword for nearly two years and have known her for almost five years. She is professional, passionate, obviously talented, and beloved by her performers. From what I’ve seen as both a fan and a co-worker, mr. Pam’s gender has played zero role in her ability to produce quality work. Have I liked all of it? Of course not. But the fact that she’s a she has had nothing to do with my criticisms, and unless you’re a bigot, it shouldn’t have anything to do with yours either.
