Caution: Explicit

A long and unintentionally humorous interview. Sanchez claims "I've had one wife and two fiancees." He claims to never have been gay but says it was no problem maintaining an erection while having sex with other males. Opposes the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. Says he gay porn acting was a "summer job," and claims to have acted in straight porn but refuses to provide title names.


SIGNORILE: I know you lived in Quebec when you made "Montreal Men" in 1993.

SANCHEZ: Which is a film that’s rarely … um, 1992.

SIGNORILE: O.K., so There’s a lot … again, the dates. The dates become an issue. Like, "When was this film made?"

SIGNORILE: Well you’ve said …

SANCHEZ: It was a summer job.

SIGNORILE: … this was all 15 years ago

SANCHEZ: Uh, yeah. The films were … no. The films were 1992 through ’93, but they were in two summers. You have to understand how you … And anyone who’s been in this industry, or that industry, knows how you pop these things out. You do a couple of the scenes and then they can reuse then. So if you tell me, for instance, that I was in such a film, "Touched By Whatever" …

SIGNORILE: "Touched by an Anal."

SANCHEZ: "Touched by an Anal," for instance. And it’s interesting that they …

SIGNORILE: Because I have a list here, and it’s ’94 was Bi Conflict, ’94, Beatoff Frenzy …

SANCHEZ: See ...

SIGNORILE: … ’95, Built Tough, ’95, Jawbreaker …

SANCHEZ: Jawbreaker is a name I …

SIGNORILE: Touched By An Anal, 1997, and there’s Buttcrack Mountain, which is 2006. Now that’s a compilation.

SANCHEZ: It’s funny, it’s funny, it’s interesting that you’re using all these funny terms that describe homosexuality in order to almost try to berate me or ...

SIGNORILE: No, those are the names of the films.

SANCHEZ: I understand that. But it’s funny you didn’t mention Montreal Men or Town …

SIGNORILE: I said Montreal Men. It’s the first one I said.

SANCHEZ: Or Town and Country. But those are the films you …

SIGNORILE: Well there was Idol Country.

SANCHEZ: Idol Country. If you told me I was in this film, I wouldn’t know. Frankly, I really wouldn’t know. In 2006, you can look at the film and I assure you it was filmed sometime in either ninety …

SIGNORILE: Right. Are you saying all of these were done before ’93 and …

SANCHEZ: Yes.

SIGNORILE: And they’re just reusing stuff …

SANCHEZ: And now somebody out there is going to go and find the people. Everything I say and I put something out there, and you have 200 faceless bloggers scanning the Net and looking for this information. It’s not like I was in a haze. I’m not trying to hide anything, that’s why I came here. Um, but, what I want to say is I did … but getting back to your original question, I know people are trying to prove me a hypocrite as I speak, but getting back to your original question is I did this films, and looking back I realize I wouldn’t want to do those films again. And anyone who’s participated in that industry knows that.

SIGNORILE: There are many people who are perfectly happy in that industry …

SANCHEZ: Sure …

SIGNORILE: … and living well ...

SANCHEZ: … and more power to them. I have a hard time believing that, but more power to them. Look, in my case, as a person, as an individual ...

SIGNORILE: You didn’t …

SANCHEZ: As a human being, I will tell you right now that the porn industry is a pernicious industry.

SIGNORILE: You’ve said you’ve done straight porn but I can’t find the names of any of those films.

SANCHEZ: I’m sure if you put some bloggers on there ...

SIGNORILE: No …

SANCHEZ: How many gay men are into straight porn? Maybe some.

SIGNORILE: You’ve also kind of evolved. You talk about progression …

SANCHEZ: Yeah I’ve progressed …

SIGNORILE: … in calling yourself gay or not. In one blog I see you say ...

SANCHEZ: Yes, in that 1998 Kirstin Bjorn …

SIGNORILE: … you say you were not good at being gay. This was a few days ago, but then …

SANCHEZ: Yes, yes.

SIGNORILE: Then you told Alan Colmes, you’re absolutely not gay.

SANCHEZ: That was being facetious. I said I’m not good at being gay. I’ve had one wife, two fiancees …

SIGNORILE: Are you gay?

SANCHEZ: … and zero … And the answer is no. And now I’m going to get all these people on the blogs, and probably someone who’s going to call …

SIGNORILE: So why were you being facetious with that … you were being serious when you said absolutely not

SANCHEZ: Well I mean if you look at my reading … if you rather look at my writing, I do a lot of word play. I mean I didn’t mean to just say no. He said, "Oh, expand on these answers," and I understand that for you, it’s important with identity politics to say, "Oh, this person’s gay. This person’s straight" …
 
SIGNORILE: No, no. If you’re bisexual, that’s perfectly fine.

SANCHEZ: I didn’t say that either. But I do want to make that point, and this is … with the hypocrite issue this is what bothers people. And all the hate mail I’ve gotten …

SIGNORILE: Look … the Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell policy isn’t about identity politics, it is about men screwing men up the butt. Now, you have screwed men up the butt. You have screwed with men up the butt? Correct? So let’s get out of the terms. Let’s talk about behavior. You have had anal sex. Let’s just … that’s a yes.

SANCHEZ: It’s on film.

SIGNORILE: Of course. That’s what people point to as you were part of this community of people who engage in sexual activity that it outside the norm, that the military attacks, and says is not allowed, and people who engage in that are not allowed. I hope you understand that.

SANCHEZ: No, Michael I think what the problem is, and again it’s interesting how you use those terms. If you define yourself through sexuality, it’s interesting that you’d use the term butt and all these really blatant terms to describe something …

SIGNORILE: Why?

SANCHEZ: Because for a lot of reasons, but I think it’s mostly because …

SIGNORILE: Let me put it this way ..

SANCHEZ: ... But I have no problem with it.

SIGNORILE: Well do you believe that that is bad activity? Do you believe …

SANCHEZ: Michael, you have a bigger problem with it than the military does.

SIGNORILE: So do you believe the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy is a good thing?

SANCHEZ: Michael, you’re training is what, as a lawyer? Or …

SIGNORILE: Are you going to answer the questions or not? Are you going to keep asking me a question back?

SANCHEZ: No, I’m saying that you have a bigger problem with this than the military does

SIGNORILE: Okay … I asked you a question. Do you approve of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy?

SANCHEZ: No. I don’t. And I’ve said that as well. I’ve said it’s sloppy …

SIGNORILE: Do you feel homosexuality is a bad thing? ‘Cause you’ve said you got out of porn, and porn is pernicious and … but is homosexuality bad for people?

SANCHEZ: Michael, look at these analogies you’re making. Is pornography homosexuality? I mean yes, I was in gay porn …

SIGNORILE: No, I’m asking you about homosexuality, and then I’m going to move on to something else.

SANCHEZ: Yes. For me, homosexuality, yes, was a bad thing.

SIGNORILE: Was a bad thing?

SANCHEZ: From what I see. Yeah, for my opinion, yeah.

SIGNORILE: And …

SANCHEZ: The lifestyle to me is bad. Sorry, ladies and gentlemen.

SIGNORILE: So you would call yourself ex-gay? But you weren’t gay?

SANCHEZ: No

SIGNORILE: Even though you engaged in anal sex and …

SANCHEZ: On TV, and men, and for pay … and other factors ...

SIGNORILE: How do you keep your penis erect while it’s inside another man’s anus. What do you think about?

SANCHEZ: It’s mostLy mental. A lot of people can’t even keep their penis erect when they …

SIGNORILE: Because this is pre-Viagra ...

SANCHEZ: Yeah. Yeah, it’s mostly mental. I think most people have said sex is in the mind. It’s really not that difficult.

SIGNORILE: Really!

SANCHEZ: Michael, have you been on a porn set?

SIGNORILE: Yeah

SANCHEZ: Okay. It’s very difficult. The scene with, um …

SIGNORILE: I’m admittedly gay and I could not be on a set with people watching me and stay erect. I don’t know how someone who’s sort of quasi-gay can do that ...

SANCHEZ: Now I’m quasi-gay

SIGNORILE: Well, whatever you are ...

SANCHEZ: … despite everything I’ve just said. I just told you what I was and you don’t have …

SIGNORILE: No you didn't.

SANCHEZ: Yeah I did.

SIGNORILE: Are you bisexual? I’ve already been there.

SANCHEZ: Didn’t I just say what I was?

OFF-SET: Are you straight?

SANCHEZ: Yes.

SIGNORILE: Are you heterosexual?

SANCHEZ: Yes. How’s that?

SIGNORILE: So how does a heterosexual stay hard inside another man’s anus?

SANCHEZ: Michael, the same way he does it inside a woman’s vagina.

SIGNORILE: No, because that is a woman’s vagina ...

SANCHEZ: According to you it’s a woman’s … you can have sex with someone, believe me, who you don’t find attractive. People out there listening to the sound of my voice know that. And I think it. I don’t even know where you’re coming from. Haven’t you ever had sex with someone you weren’t attracted to?
