To say that Jack Lawrence has a lot going on would be making an understatement. The 5 time AVN Award Nominee and best supporting actor nominee for his role in SexZ Picture's ''The Real Boogie Nights'' also has a new DVD out on his Liquid Lust label.
Lawrence is the subject of a recent Playgirl Magazine spread, as well as a spread in Inches Magazine. Jack is an avid saltwater reefkeeper and is even getting back into cycling again. ''The cardio I have gained in the last 6 weeks of cycling has made a night and day difference in my scenes, I am not the same performer!''
Jack is a native San Franciscan, having grown up in the Castro District of the City. He claims that is the root cause of his ability to accept new things at an early age. Subsequently he took turns first as a cook in the U.S. Army reserves, a peace officer, a professional cyclist for 8 years and as an escort.
It was during his stint as an escort that Porn Legend Keisha suggested that he pursue a career on camera. She brought him to an interview with World Modeling’s Jim South and Jack never looked back. Lawrence does say that he had a lot of fun escorting and would still be doing that were it not for his success as an adult performer.
Jack brings a very unique perspective to his work, particularly for a man. His interest is in ''extremely high production values'' and increasing sensitivity toward the natural progression of eroticism in adult entertainment. To hear Lawrence explain it, most males learn how to have sex from watching porn, and most porn is geared not toward teaching the viewer how to be a good lover but rather toward creating a consumer of additional works of porn.
Most adult productions stop a shoot for one reason or another, then typically call for a return to shooting at ''full intensity'' which is incompatible with the female model's physical and sexual responses. This is something Jack want to see change. ''If you give a good performer a few moments to actually get a woman’s engine running again, you have a great scene. As soon as you say ''back to intensity'' you’ve basically said fake the scene. The consumer can see it in the woman’s eyes...at that point it’s fake. Consumers are more savvy than Directors give them credit for.''
Lawrence certainly walks the walk in terms of sensual, woman centered sex. The reader of over 40 books on sex and the author of his own book, ''Extended Female Orgasm'' (copyright 2000) Jack has taught classes at the Learning Annex on sex and cunnilingus. ''Women will trash a $200 set of of sheets with their fingernails for a good orgasm'' according to Jack, adding that most women experience a mere ten percent of the orgasm that they are capable of. He advocates a site called The-Clitoris.com...''every man should go to that site.''
The latest achievement in Lawrence’s career is the four DVD instructional series ''Breaking Into Porn.'' Inspired by numerous requests for advice on the difficult task of breaking into the adult film business as a male performer BIP is brilliant, imparting an amazing amount of information to anyone considering this as a career. At over eight and one half hours long the details are extensive and honest regarding what a man can expect from the Industry, and how he can build a career while being a good costar and a more mentally prepared performer.
Breaking into Porn recently received the accolades it deserves from AVN magazine, garnering a AAAA spotlight pick in ratings, and can be ordered wholesale and retail as well as streaming online at www.BreakingIntoPorn.com
Meanwhile, Jack is making a part time return to motor sports in his 1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe’ in Regional SCCA Road Racing. The car is also available for mainstream and adult work, as well as car shows.
Lawrence continues to work on his official website www.JackLawrenceXXX.com which features 30-58 live webcam shows per month and over 50 sex scenes with over 19,000 photographs. It’s great to have fine men like Jack Lawrence out there.
