This concept piece is inspired by the aesthetics seen in Western Sydney Suburbia featuring François Sagat as a third generation Middle Eastern man / woman.
The piece explores the conflicting coexistence of elements in society; modern vs. traditional, men vs. women, Middle East vs. White Australia. Remarkably though, all these elements constitute the fabric of Australian multiculturalism.
Despite the initial boundaries, may they be visual, cultural, sub-cultural, religious, ethnic, gender or sexual, our common goals and aspirations unite us despite the individual fears and stereotypes we have about the other.
In this piece François Sagat reflects on the battle of masculinity vs. femininity, traditional vs. modern society and how this transition from traditional to modern created a whole sub-culture which has (unfortunately) become a victim of discrimination by both traditional and modern sides.
This piece is not a reflection on Islam, or Muslim people in Australia. On the contrary, it is an abstract work of art interpreting battles of identity that today’s youth are fighting whilst in the process of determining who they are.
As a society it is our responsibility to accept each other, and not live by the prejudices and stereotypes of our forebears, but see beyond the veils and smoke.
We must open our eyes and see the humanity in every person we encounter and learn to accept them wholly, seeing the way they are as integral and vital in our journey together – the one that that we call life.

First apperance at TIFF Bell Lightbox Theatre part of Disconnect Fashion Film Festival 2014 in Toronto, Canada.
Thank You, The Collections and Disconnect Fashion Film Festival / Toronto International Film Festival.
Was happy and surprised to see Incubus Part 2 received 9 Grabby Awards nominations.
It was nominated for Best Movie, Best Screenplay, Best Videography, Best Box Cover and Best Art Direction.
Plus nominations for Best Group Scene (for David Anthony, Junior Stellano and me). I also got nominated for Best Director and Best Actor.
Plus one more nomination for Steamworks Fan Favorite.
Even more, there were nominations for many who worked on the movie. Brian Mills for Best Still Photography. Christopher Daniels, Trenton Ducati and Jesse Jackman all were nominated for Best Versatile Performer. Christopher Daniels was nominated for Hottest Bottom.
Hottest Cock nomination for Trenton Ducati, Jimmy Durano, Jesse Jackman and ME! lol!
Manly Man nominations to Jesse Jackman, Hunter Marx and Spencer Reed.
And finally a nomination for Titanmen is Best Studio Site.
I want to take a chance one more time to thank all of the people who worked on the movie. Bruce Cam and Keith Webb for allowing me to bring the nightmare and make it real. Brian Mills for being my mentor through the whole thing. Paul, Marty and Jasun for working night and day on the camera and sets and costumes and makeup. Slick It Up, Charlie le Mindu , and Pierre Henri Noel for costumes.
Plus all the stars Spencer Reed, Shay Michaels, Trenton Ducati, Jimmy Durano, Aymeric Deville, Hunter Marx, Jessy Ares, Jesse Jackman, Christopher Daniels, David Anthony, Junior Stellano and Casey Williams. There were so many people who helped make it all happen.

Finn who writes the Titanmen Blog sent me a link to this. I will just copy what he wrote.
Glad to see that Incubus got so many nominations. If you have not voted, vote here.
Nice to wake up to so much love and support. The TLA Gay Award nominations are out and Titanmen got a bunch of nods and so did some of our best friends in the industry.
Francois Sagat’s opus Incubus 2 got a nod in Must-Own Gay Movie of the Year. This would add to Francois’s recent win at the XBiz Awards where Incubus took home Best Gay Movie for parts 1 & 2.
Trenton Ducati was named in both Best NewComer and Best Performer categories. Trenton made his debut in Francois Sagat’s Incubus… more proof of what a fantastic movie it was.
Titanmen Exclusive Jesse Jackman was also nominated for Best NewComer. You’ll remember that he also appears in Incubus. Both in an incredible hardcore scene with Christopher Daniels that’s been called “the closest thing to Clash of the Titans porn.” He also appears in an uncredited role as Francois’s evil doppelgänger in the jaw-dropping Underwater Wrestling scene from Incubus part 1. (check out Jesse’s blog here)
Topping it all off, we at Titanmen are very proud to get nominated for Content Producer/Studio of the Year.
But that’s not all…
In the most fun category, Most Entertaining and/or prolific Twitterer category, Francois Sagat is mentioned one more time along with guys whom have appeared in a bunch of Titanmen movies like Cavin Knight, Spencer Reed and Christopher Daniels.
We were also excited to see that regular Titanmen director Joe Gage got a nomination for his movie Dad Goes To College. Congrats to everyone. It’s been a great year for porn, especially here at Titanmen.
Cast your ballots here. Your last chance to vote is March 31, 2013 at 11:59pm ET.
Canadian-Dutch Artistic Director, Choregrapher and Dancer ANDRé GINGRAS tragically lost his battle with cancer last sunday 17th of february… I had the chance and the honor to work with him for a project named “The TRADESMEN” (Les Commerçants) shot in 2008 at Centre national de la danse (CND) in Paris… here is an extract of the video …
You can watch Incubus at the Titanmen Website.
Check out the video after the jump…
Here is the Censored (grrrrr) video (the uncensored one soon), directed by Franck Glenisson, who’s also an amazing photographer and song writer …he wrote those poetic lyrics, and chose the theme of Hadès ….name of the Kingdom and God of the Underworld…
It basically speaks of death and oblivion …between those two “parallel” characters that Sylvia Gobbel and I represen; her : muse of the past and me : creature of an uncertain future …this is an ironic but very romantic and strong meaning that Franck tried to show in this video and those lyrics.
The video and imagery are also inspired and a tribute to the amazing Helmut Newton, the fashion and nude photographer who died in 2004.
The timing of the release of Hadés was actually perfect because currently a tribute exhibition to Helmut Newton’s work takes place at Paris Grand Palais…
My partner Sylvia Gobbel in this duet is known to be one of the main models and inspirations around the world of Helmut Newton.
I promise an uncensored one in a month….
