We had adult film legend and “Godfather of Gonzo” Adam Glasser (aka Seymore Butts) on the Frotcast back in February, and it quickly became our most-listened episode. Mr. Glasser answered even our most idiotic questions, regaling us with stories about newbie porn stars drinking their enemas and explaining why people are always spitting in butts (“well what else are you gonna do with a gaping butt?”).
Believe it or not, we still didn’t get to ask everything we wanted to, so we’re having him back on tonight to answer EVEN MORE OF OUR DUMB QUESTIONS! YAY! So how about it, FilmDrunkards and Frotthusiasts? Anything on your mind that we failed to cover the first time around? Ask away in the comments.
I’ll attach Seymore’s bio below just in case you aren’t familiar with porno– HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Did you see that? I almost typed that with a straight face.
Adam Glasser was born in Bronx, New York in 1965. After establishing young Adam’s East Coast roots, the Glasser family moved to Southern California in the mid-70s. Glasser graduated Santa Monica High School in 1982 and began working a series of “odd jobs” including retail sales, apparel production, and as a personal trainer soon after. Life was interesting, but Adam’s outgoing and inquisitive nature would eventually prompt him to seek a more unconventional path.
Glasser began working as an adult performer and supporting actor during the early 1990s; however, his energetic personality and creative capacity quickly compelled him to try his hand at directing. In 1991, Adam Glasser borrowed a camera, shot and edited his first production, and found a distributor at an adult film convention in Las Vegas, NV. He summarily created an alter-ego for himself, a name that was both easy to remember and an homage to his favorite part of the female anatomy. In 1992, Seymore Butts and Seymore, Inc. were born.
Adam Glasser went on to create some of the decade’s most innovative and respected adult content, winning AVN Awards for “Best Gonzo Series” in 1999 and 2000. He was inducted into the X-Rated Critics Organization’s (XRCO) Hall of Fame in 2004 and into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2005. To date, Glasser has amassed over 300 adult producer, director, and performer credits, and his content is distributed in over 20 different countries around the world. Glasser has been featured and/or interviewed by Playboy, Salon.com, AskMen.com, Detour Magazine, Stuff Magazine, and US News & World Report Magazine (among many others). He has also served a two year term as an elected member of the Board of Directors for the adult industry trade organization, Free Speech Coalition (FSC).
Beginning in 2003, Glasser’s life was the focus of Showtime’s popular reality program “Family Business.” Appearing with him were his mother, Lila Glasser, and his older cousin, Stevie Glasser (a.k.a. “Cousin Stevie”), both of whom help Glasser run the family business – Seymore, Inc. The series also focused on the absurdities of Glasser’s daily life, the challenges of being a single father, and his difficulties finding a meaningful romantic relationship. It ran with great success for four seasons.
Since “Family Business,” Glasser’s career has continued to diversify and grow. His first book, Rock Her World: the Sex Guide for the Modern Man, was published by Gotham Books in 2009. He is currently putting the finishing touches on a second text, How to Survive a Reality Show, that addresses challenges reality television face. Whatsmore, in late 2011, Glasser announced the continuation of Seymore, Inc.’s partnership with leading adult distributor, Pure Play Media. Among other exciting developments (including access to an extensive back catalogue), new Seymore Butts content will be distributed exclusively by Pure Play.
