On Kristen Bjorn
"In his maturity as a director", writes Onan the Vulgarian, "he has become the master of his domain, a prime mover, and a grand architect". I've always thought of Kristen Bjorn as the sculptor of gay porn: his inspiration is predominantly 'plastic', as much as George Duroy's is often lyric. However I find Onan's review more euristically fertile than mine: indeed Kristen 'sculpts' the male form with the vigor of a Michelangelo. But he also composes the naked bodies in relation to the space they inhabit --like an architect would. Not a 'decorative' relation, but a deeper, more meaningful, sexually charged relation.
