MARINA DEL REY, Calif.—An interview with prolific adult director Paul Thomas will air tonight at 7:30 p.m. EST on WNYU, 89.1 FM the campus radio station for New York University.
During a recent visit to New York, Thomas was invited to the station to discuss everything from his mainstream career to his new, independent adult studio, Paul Thomas Presents and upcoming DVD release, Pervert.
The recorded interview airs tonight and then will be archived on the station’s website and blog.
WNYU Citywide hosts Zoe Rosenberg and Luke Green said, “We asked Paul Thomas to be a guest on Citywide because we wanted to provide our listeners with insight into a field we don't often discuss on-air. We were excited to do a show that challenged us, as well as our listeners, into stepping out of constructed comfort zones. It's encouraging to see an artist bring such positive sophistication to one of the largest and simultaneously most subaltern aspects of today's media culture.”
The WNYU interview with Paul Thomas will stream live online at WNYU.org.
The interview will be archived on the site, as well as the Citywide blog, CitywideWNYU.Wordpress.com.
“I was honored to do an interview with NYU radio, as it is one of the leading film schools in the country,” Thomas said. “Zoe and Luke had some great questions about pornography, and it was a pleasure busting many of the misconceptions. My goal was not to corrupt NYU’s film program, but to let people know about the existing alternatives to the Hollywood machine. Adult movies allow a creative freedom unique to the entertainment industry. My movies like Pervert are intense examinations of sexuality, a subject which should never be censored, but often is.”
Pervert is the second feature from Paul Thomas Presents and distributed by LFP Video. Releasing on DVD Nov. 2, the movie stars Bobbi Starr, Samantha Ryan, Lily LaBeau, Krissy Lynn, Sarah Shevon, Otto Bauer, Eric Swiss, Anthony Rosano and Derrick Pierce. The movie is an intelligent and sexually extreme vision of the deviant behaviors lurking in the back of even the most normal minds.
