BILLY WATSON: The Professor of Desire
Once upon a time, Billy Watson was on the tenure track at a college in the Southwestern US, teaching English Lit. and dedicating his life to the artistic betterment of America's youth. But academe was too confining for a man of Mr. Watson's expansive imagination and, through a sequence of circumstances he found himself working as a pornographer. Soon enough, he was seduced into a seething netherworld of barely legal naked babes, black men with horse cocks, simulated prison sex and websites with names like "No Way Am I Gay!" The dude abides. A popular and erudite blogger (IShootPorn.com) and prolfiic lensman, Watson talks about his experiences shooting web content, getting set up in his new LA studios, his wacky early days advertising for models in the back of alternative weeklies, his favorite rock band (Wilco!), and the always weird world of gonzo.
