Director Statement

I had one goal for this documentary; to share the captivating life of Todd James. He invited me into his home, and like most people in his life, I never left. I have been lured by Todd’s charm and hope to pass on his story, which I guarantee is like no other. I wanted to create a raw, all-access pass in the intimate setting of his home: his “fortress of cock solitude”.

As a filmmaker, this documentary was one of the biggest challenges I’ve had to face. Not only did I tackle this project completely on my own, but I was also dealing with people who are only in Todd’s life to remain anonymous. Todd is a man who lives on his own terms, doing what he loves. There are serious issues present in the documentary, with the repercussions of anonymous unsafe sex. I hope people learn something from Todd’s life and think about the person on the other side of the hole.

The love Todd receives every day from his friends and family can only be compared to that of a kind and great man. I hope to take viewers on an eye-opening, entertaining and hilarious journey of a man whose mouth is his best feature.
