(WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- Acclaimed actor Esai Morales, of ABC Television's "NYPD Blue" fame, sat down with host Jason Sechrest for a chat on KSEXradio's live sex talk radio program, the Young & the Curious, last Friday evening. Morales, whose final episode of "NYPD Blue" airs tonight, took the opportunity to open up to Sechrest on a gamut of controversial topics. The evening's featured porn star guests -- AVN Hall of Famer Shayla LaVeaux, and gay XXX newcomer, Cody Cash -- were left with jaws dropped at how forthcoming the mainstream star was about the following issues.
On whether or not he's ever come close to having a gay sex experience... "This is the kind of thing you regret [saying] because later on, on the Internet, one day, you said... But I'm not ashamed of it. I'm very secure of my sexuality. But when you're a young boy, pre-teen, whatever, and you're with your friends, it's not even sexual. It's more athletic if anything. It's like look at the straw I drew. I think you got to be comfortable with your sexuality to be comfortable with other people's. That's the root of the right wing fear and repression. Everyone should be married to the one they love."
On ABC's decision to cut to black during his briefly nude scene last week: "You can show a man getting his head blown off on TV, but you can't show a man getting blown. There ought to be a law. It's so sad that, instead of building our infrastructure, instead of figuring out how to get more books into kids' minds, or teaching children how to learn for themselves, we're having fights about Janet Jackson's breasts."
On the size of his penis: "When you do jumping jacks in the nude and you start hitting yourself in the face..."
On being an AIDS Dissident: "There are things that would blow your mind and move all of us into conspiracy theory. People should take the time to realize where their money is going and how it is being spent, and how many victims there really are and how many times the definition of AIDS has been redefined. And with each redefinition the numbers go magically up. If you broaden the net wider and wider you're going to make it appear like there's an epidemic. But if you take the original estimates, this thing peaked in 86-87. In 1993, with the last redefinition, the numbers doubled overnight. Now all of a sudden people who were not sick are being told you're going to get sick. You're going to die based on tests the FDA has never approved to be used as a diagnostic tool. Because so many people have people they love associated with [this subject], immediately, emotions are thrown in and then politics and then money, the bedrock of it all. What you wind up with is people in a hysterical state pushing for protections and laws and we need more money. But if you stand back and look at it in a sober way, you'll realize that this epidemic is not really an epidemic by most accounts. More people die of car accidents every year. Or of breast cancer, far more but that gets the lion's share of attention and money. Over $120 billion has been invested in the last ten or twenty years with no real results Except... A lot more drugs! The truth is that while there is obviously something that we have all agreed to call AIDS, what it is comprised of and how it actually functions is something that very few of us have any understanding about."
The show was written up in this morning's edition of the New York Daily News. (Read the story online at: NYDailyNews.com/entertainment/ent_radio/story/171571p-149704c.html)
Sechrest had mentioned in a statement on Friday afternoon that Morales would be the first of a few mainstream stars he has slated for his program in the near future. Fans can hear the live broadcast of 'the Young & the Curious' every Friday at 6:00 pm (PT) Free at KSEXradio.com, while members of KSEX or Sechrest's straight and gay megasite JasonCurious.com can view all of the hot action on the in-studio cams. The show then rebroadcasts every six hours throughout the weekend.
Jason Sechrest has been an active part of the adult entertainment community for over five years as a print/broadcast journalist, public relations representative, gossip columnist, movie reviewer, sex talk radio host, and more. He's most known for his innovative and groundbreaking adult web site, JasonCurious.com, wherein he allows the regular Joe and Jane to live vicariously through a himself, a twenty-three year old boy who knows every porn star you've ever wanted to sleep with -- straight, gay, male, or female! The site is the only one on the web to cover both genres of the adult entertainment world and, in an age where reality-based entertainment rules, has been highly successful in giving the viewer a taste of the wild rollercoaster that is Sechrest's erotic life. He's slept with Jenna (or next to her, at least!) and has thrown Snoop Dogg out of his posh Vegas parties, making mainstream headlines. Sechrest and his site has been covered by everyone from Rolling Stone magazine to MTV News, the most recent mainstream recognition coming from Arena magazine, who listed him on their "50 Most Powerful People in Porn" list along with the likes of Larry Flynt and Hugh Hefner. Sechrest currently pens columns for Club International and Badpuppy magazines and hosts a weekly sex talk radio show "The Young & the Curious" at KSEXradio.com. He also recently made a turn to mainstream acting, making his Los Angeles stage debut in "Waiting for Godot" September 2003, along with his first major supporting role in a mainstream movie "Final Exam," directed by Roger Corman, pending an early 2004 release.
