pornography wasn't sex but fantasies of an impossibly hospitable world

Strange that even though I know many posters here are big fans of Mason (aka. Sam No) that she doesn't have an appreciation thread. So I thought I'd start one.
I'm a features guy in the main, usually the classics, but when I started posting here and exploring modern gonzo porn I discovered Mason/Sam No's films and they immediately stuck out for the naturalism of the performances, the intelligent choice of angles to present the sex in the most attractive way and the sense of pacing to the scenes that made it possible for me to watch them right through without any of the standard Fast-Forwarding.
Her two films with Annette Schwarz are remarkable, some of the best gonzo porn I've ever seen. Her Massive Asses series is the best big butt material out there and her work with Kristina Rose in Slave Dolls, Dirty Girl, etc is excellent as well.
I've been looking into her earlier work recently as well: Riot Sluts, Mason's Sexual Disorder, etc. I wish some of it was more available.
She seems to keep the Mason name for her rougher material and use Sam No for the big butt and less extreme stuff.
I know that she's into boxing, and there's a shot of her up on iafd. She doesn't produce at the rate of most directors but that may be the reason for the general high quality of her material. She gets my vote for best pornographer working today.
What say the rest of you?

I've never seen a Mason title. I don't watch very many non IR titles. Can someone suggest one of her titles to check out. I only ones I know are Massive Boobs and Massive Facials.

Mason is one of the few directing geniuses out there. She does an amazing job and always sets a high standard.
As far as reccommendations of her movies. I would say just go to Elegant Angels website and search her name. Anything that comes up will be well worth your time. But to name a few here:
Kristina Rose:Dirty Girl
Buttwoman(Any)
Slutwoman (Any)
Any of the Massive titles(Boobs,Asses,Facials)
Pornstar Workout(isn't out yet, but there is a great thread on it in Press Release)

Depends on what you like Royal Tee, but to start I'd recommend the first Massive Asses, you'll recognize a number of the girls from IR titles since they have big asses. The Georgia Peach scene in there is the best thing she ever did, I loved Georgia but never thought she was shot right. Sunny Lane's scene is an epic. Something that should be shown to prove that just straight-up sex can sometimes (almost) be art.
For the rougher stuff you can't go wrong with Annette Schwarz is Slutwoman, a masterpiece, probably.

I see Massive Asses has Carmen Kinsley too. I always wanted to see some of her scenes, I might have to check this one out. Massive Boobs looks good too. Thanks.

Mason is amazing. I truly appreciate the female sensibility for ultra hardcore and Mason delivers like no other, save Belladonna. Always hot, envelope pushing sex that NEVER seems forced or creepy. Edgy, for sure, but that comes with the chemistry of the cast and the vision everyone on the set must share - beginning with Mason's. I love her work!

I became aware of Mason through ADT. I fully appreciate everything she shoots, whether it turns me on or not. Her insight into female sexuality is unique, even if I find it offensive. Every woman is special, and Mason always tries to express that. She works in partnership with her female performers, and no matter how degrading one might perceive any particular act, one always walks away with the sense that it was consensual. I've learned more about the broad gamut of female sexuality from Mason than I have from any other pornographer.

I love and greatly appreciate everything that I have ever seen by Mason, and I enjoy the directions that she takes in fleshing out the deeper, more sordid side of darker, sublimated female desires. Often even the ones that never get vocaliszed out loud. I remember how utterly terrified I was to watch the Julie Night scene in Dirty Trixxx 2, having never been comfortable with violent rape fantasies portrayed on film. That doesn't mean, however, that I haven't had them in my head when I'm jerking off, and somehow, the way that scene played out and as intense as it was, it filled in the gaps of my own fantasy so neatly, so perfectly, I felt as if only a woman could direct this scene for other women, and understand completely (plus the audio commentary with Mason and Julie proved how obvious it was that they were all having fun).
Mason has a way with atmosphere, which for a lot of women is an even bigger turn on than a scene involving just the simple, naked act. She has a way of making even a DVD of basically nothing but blowjobs (like Lady Fellatio) exciting for me, because of the way she sets the mood.

I agree with everyone here - she definitely has a way with performers, and with atmosphere. My first movie of hers was Riot Sluts 2, and I remember being really worried that it was going to upset me (the opening is rather foreboding). Little did I know that it would be a life-changing film experience. The opening scene with Katrina Craven and Kimberley Kane (and Mason, vocally) is simply amazing.

Mason is a rare breed in my eye. She's definitely at the top of my favorites. I've been fortunate enough to have contact with Mason in person, as well as electronically (email and chat and stuff). This is one of the most complex and unique individuals I know. Thus far, I have yet to see something I don't like by here, but I'll be honest in saying her rougher stuff (Platinum X days), is what I enjoy more.
To me, this thread is one of, if not the, best of the "Appreciation" threads.

One of the best adult directors working today.
I don't mind if she dosen't direct but once every 6 months, as long as the quality remains high.
Both Slutwoman movies with Annette Schwarz and Kristina Rose is Dirty Girl were 2 of the best films last year, in my opinion.
Keep up the great work, Mason!

Definitely a long overdue thread. Been a fan since her first time round with Elegant Angel, Dirty Trixxx 2 was the first DVD I ever bought. Missed her when she had that long sabbatical because theres no-one like her. Some of my favourite ever scenes are hers,
Judy Star in Internally Yours 3
Ariana Jollee in Riot Sluts 1 (recommended for Royal Tee)
Jessica Darlin in Sexual Disorder
Any scene with Annette Schwarz or Julie Night.
Melpster and Gore Gore Girl are spot on with the atmosphere thing and also Mason just seems to have this connection with the performers that so few directors have. I'm a big fan of other directors but Mason is the only must-buy.

If I had to pick one porn scene to put in a 21st century time capsule, it would be the Manuel Ferrara /Sunny Lane scene from Massive Asses.
This scene really has it all. First off, the idea of starting at the end is great. Sunny and Manuel are lounging on the couch, post coitus. It is like they themselves are coming to terms with what just happened. Then, we are back at the start and we the viewers get to experience voyeurism at its finest.
I really don’t have the writing skills to do this scene justice, so I won’t even try. Suffice to say, there isn’t a single frame of video in this scene that doesn’t belong there. And the finale!
When Manuel rests his huge organ between Sunny’s butt cheeks and start to erupt like Mount Vesuvius, it slays me every time. The picture is framed beautifully and when Sunny looks back, opens her mouth and actually starts to catch Manuel’s semen with her tongue as it flies through the air you know you are viewing sex at an Olympic athlete level.
The true icing on the cake for me is that Manuel is one of the few male stars my Wife enjoys watching and I think the fact that Mason/Sam, a woman is behind the lens puts her even more at ease as she watches. One might think that a couple would be intimidated watching such professionals, but the chemistry between Manuel and Sunny, flawlessly captured by Mason, is truly inspiring.
So Mason, if you are out there, thanks from the bottom of my heart.
Fidelio!

I think that all of the latest Sam No stuff is shot so well -- flawlessly? -- that it's beginning to eclipse my love of older Mason stuff. I think I like Sam No more now, due to movies like Kristina Rose Dirty Girl (one of my favourites).
Much love.

Huuummmm. I know I've been living under a rock for a while but how did I miss this thread?
Mason and Sam No. rulesss school. It's no secret that she's like two of my top three favorite directors ever!!! I always have so much fun with her and to this day nothing has yet to top the time I spent shooting Dirty Girl with her. I feel like I owe a lot of my current success to her. She rocks and she got Manuel for me the very first time and now I get to work with him on a regular basis and we all know how much I loooove that.

^ All the Rose girls seem to love Manuel. Damn him! *shaking fist angrily* It must be the accent. Anyways I agree with you. Mason is a genius director and now all of her accolades can be expressed here. The whole Elegant team is great and they always treat the girls with high reverence.

She's a great director. Good angles and gets good chemistry out of the girls. The Slutwoman movies and the Massive Asses series are my favorites. The Kristina Rose/Kelly Divine/Manuel Ferrera scene in the latest MA is definitely one of the best scenes i've seen lately.

Dr. Nasty, It's not the accent. I'm not usually a sucker for an accent like some girls, although I must say his is kinda cute. For me it's like he lives in my little pervert mind and knows exactly what I need him to do and want him to do. He's yummy.
V_H_, I think I would like to be in a movie that is directed by Mason where I can fuck Manu in every scene and add in a girl or guy here and there. Best movie ever!!!
Haaa, haaa.

I finally watched Kristina Rose: Dirty Girl this week, and I was *not* disappointed. Kristina, you're amazing, and once again Sam No does an astounding job. Her framing is unbeatable. Can't wait for Slutwoman...

Just watched annette is slutwoman again.The thing I like best about Mason is how she eggs the preformer on telling her how nasty she is and kinda making you think she'd like to be doing it but just cant bring herself to.

Should this be moved to Star Crossed or is it ok in Porn Pool? I'm drawing a blank right now.

^ Are directors "stars" according to Star Crossed criteria? I'm not sure.
Either way, I've said before, but I'll say it again, Mason is awesome. For those of you want to read a really interesting book chapter she wrote, check out Naked Ambition: Women Who are Changing Pornography, edited by Carly Milne. The whole book is really interesting actually.

Idk. that's why I was kinda drawing a blank on it. haha. I think you could consider them stars but it's a subjective name I guess. Not all directors are stars but some have the loyal following and fanbase of stars. Mason seems to be one of those type directors. I was just curious.

Awesome! I think you will enjoy it a lot - a lot of very interesting people contributed, and it's not "agenda" driven in the sense that they all say it's bad, or all candy-coat porn (I hate books that do that - and they're the majority, up until very recently). Mason's chapter is stand-out. She is a smart cookie.

Thus begins my long winded post about the lovely Mason...
I'm Tori Black, as many of you know, but I'm also another girl whom you are unfamiliar with. I grew up in a very small town where there weren't many people as open with their sexuality as I have always been. When developing, it's important to find someone whom you can relate to, open up to, and pursue freedom with. However, I was never so fortunate to find someone with a true heart to help me down my own path. Even my best of friends turned away from me as they learned more and more about who I am and the way my mind works.
Time lapsed and I remained lonely in my quest for true sexuality.
Down the line, in pornoland, several people held smartbuydisc.rus for me to express myself in any way I so desired. However, none of them opened their hearts to me quite like Mason.
Now for the rest of you, this might seem trivial, but for me it was quite a momentous experience for me. I'd met Mason before, and had an inkling, but never expected what followed on the set of Tori Black is Pretty Filthy.
I was given freedom and two hands to help me up. Someone who'd felt trapped like me before and someone who wanted to help me, simply to help me. No strings attached.
Mason helped me free myself of my own fears from my past and seemed to feel the rapture just as I did when my barriers were broken down. What she has done for me personally far exceeds anything I ever expected. What we produced together was just that, a combination of both of our hearts and aspirations and I will never forget the wonderful experiences I had on set with her those very few days. The impact will never cease.
Mason, you are a true friend. You mean the world to me, and somehow it all happened so quickly.
xoxo

Can't wait for the next pairing of Tori Black & Mason. I'm thinking it will only be better.

To my knowledge she was the first Gonzo director to do a commentary for their movie. Very interesting commentary I might add.
