Michael Lucas Accused of Retaliation Following Claims of Unsafe Porn Shoots

Michael Lucas—the Islamophobic porn empresario of Lucas Entertainment who was recently accused of defiling an AirBNB house with poo and pee—has reportedly told rival porn studios not to work with Josh Moore (aka. Josh Ryder), a porn actor who quit Lucas Entertainment last November amid claims of health risks at his studio.

The gay porn gossip site str8upgayporn claims that Lucas retaliated against Moore by e-mailing other major gay porn studios in America and Europe, telling them that Moore cannot perform elsewhere as he remains under an exclusive contract with Lucas Entertainment. The gossip site noted that other studios are not legally obliged to honor Lucas’ non-compete clause, adding that Moore’s contract may well be invalid because of a numerical error in its date of signing. Regardless, Moore has already filmed scenes with a U.K.-based studio.

While Moore didn’t mention specific health risks in his allegations last year, he was the most recent of several performers to make similar accusations. In February 2014, porn performer Billy Santoro accused Lucas’ studio of not properly testing its performers for STDs, claiming his porn star husband Seth had contracted chlamydia while shooting a scene for Lucas Entertainment. A handful of other performers made similar claims against the studio just a few months prior.

It’s an interesting turn of events, especially considering bareback porn continues to dominate the mainstream gay porn market. As porn studios in California recently defeated a law requiring condoms in all porn shoots, the imperative to ensure performer health rests heavily upon studio owners like Lucas.
