Born in a small town in Southern California, Paul Morris began making porn when he was around 10, at which time he was saving his allowance and the money from his paper route to pay neighborhood boys to let him draw and take Polaroids of them naked. At the age of 12 he left home with a 20 year old man named Jim who drove a dark-blue musclecar. With Jim, Paul got an introduction to serious cock-worship.
Paul ended up back home. He barely made it through high school, but as equipment manager for the baseball team he amassed a collection of dirty jock straps by issuing clean ones and taking the turn-ins home. In his Senior year, with an older buddy named Ken, he experimented with drugs, including peyote. While on peyote he spent time photographing Ken, a straight boy, nude.
After graduation, he drifted around the Southwest, hustling, working as a janitor, and stealing his first video camera in LA. He read a lot and he got into some trouble.
When he was 19 he enlisted in the Navy, hoping that it could give his life some structure or purpose. He served for nearly three years and was considering making it a career. But he ended up in the brig, having been caught on base at a gloryhole (that he had made). He was given a dishonorable discharge, ending what he had hoped would have been a lifetime supply of young men to service and videotape.
He moved to New York, hustling and making private tapes. He moved to San Francisco, hustling and making private tapes. A relative died, leaving him some money. So Paul decided to try Art School to study videomaking. He was tossed out for setting up a gloryhole in the performance gallery and taping hustler buddies sucking each other off.
He drifted for a while, using up the money he’d inherited. He lived in beach towns. He wrote some; he tried school again. Eventually he moved back to San Francisco where he met Bob Jones and other professional pornmakers. They encouraged him and taught him the basics of the business. Paul started Treasure Island Media, naming the business after his favorite childhood book. In 1998 he made RAUNCH LUNCH, his first commercial porn video.

Worst writing piece I’ve ever seen.
Hi Paul, I have liked your videos for many years. You will probably not read this but I will try to write anyway. Your videos are good but would it be possible to make a video with real leather. Not just guys wearing harness but with guys in chaps and cockring. I only found 2 or 3 videos on the net with that kind of sex that is bareback also. One of them was from darkalley way back and it was hot. When i go on blog from leather community, it is always about the same porn made 20 years ago. They were good but we need something new. I can give you a few titles to let you know what i am talking about. There is a big leather community outthere and I am surprise I am the first one asking. I know you can make that possible. Please stop the half leather and go full leather with chaps. You will be a big success. Always available to discuss my point of view if you wish. A big fan of your video. Marc
I am super fascinated by Paul Morris and remember chatting with him over “IRC”, which is an archaic form of instant messaging over the computer. This must’ve been shortly after the release of “What I can’t See”, because Paul sent me a signed copy which unfortunately got burned during a move. However, ‘What I can’t See” remains in my TOP-3 porns of all time. My question: Is there a way to reach Paul Morris directly via email?? I’m not a psycho-stalker and actually have questions for him as a potential future pornographer myself. =) -Miguel Angel
translate: It seems like you’ve led an interesting life. What strikes me most is that you met the sex at 10. I discovered it later, at 13. I have almost never used a condom until I have accumulated several diseases. Right now apart from HIV I have contracted a viral strain of HPV, which causes me a beginning of rectal cancer, and for a couple of years I stopped having sex without a condom. You see, I write because I have a curiosity. Someone like me? With a start of contagious cancer by HPV can be elected to porn actor in your company?
Original: parece que has llevado una vida interesante. lo que más me llama la atención es que conociste el sexo a los 10. yo lo descubrí mas tarde, a los 13. casi nunca he usado condón hasta que he acumulado varias enfermedades. ahora mismo aparte del VIH he contraido una cepa vírica cancerígena de PVH, lo cual me provoca un principio de cancer de recto, y llevo un par de años que dejé de hacer sexo sin condón. Verás, te escribo porque tengo una curiosidad. Alguien como yo? con un comienzo de cancer contagioso por PVH puede ser electo para actor porno en tu compañia?
