Seymore Butts (* 18th March 1964 in New York City as Adam Glasser ) is an American porn star and porn film director.


Butts has directed, produced and sometimes acted in porn films. Overall, he was involved in the creation of hundreds of Gonzo-style porn films and is considered one of the most outstanding personalities in the industry. His career began with supporting roles in the late 1980s, including a film in the "Buttman" series by John Stagliano , hence Glasser's stage name Seymore Butts . In the early 1990s he began producing his own films.

Since 2003 his own life, as well as the life of his relatives working for him, has been the subject of a reality TV show called Family Business . The show also shows u. a. his mother Lila Glasser and his nephew Stevie Glasser , both employed in the said "family business". Glasser uses his real name on the show, and the camera also rotates when he B. has to give his son the meal. His mother Taylor Hayes does not appear regularly.

Glasser is known for sometimes having women in his films with whom he also interacts outside of the film: u. a. Shane (his former fiancée, who is currently producing her own gonzo porn series Shane's World ), Alisha Klass , Taylor Hayes, and Mari Possa . He got to know the latter in front of the Family Business cameras . In February 2006, he confirmed on the message board on his website that he and Mari Possa were going their separate ways and that he was not currently in serious romantic love with anyone.

In 2004, Seymore Butts was portrayed as one of 30 well-known porn stars by American photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders in his book XXX: 30 Porn-Star Portraits and his HBO documentary Thinking XXX .

Court cases

From 2001 to 2002 there was an obscenity legal case against Glasser ( People of the State of California v. Adam Glasser, et al. ). It was about one of his 1999 films called Tampa Tushy Fest , which also included fisting . This direction, which already existed in European pornography, was still taboo in America. Glasser pleaded not to be guilty of and not against California's criminal law articles 311.2 (a) (" production, distribution or exhibition of obscene matter ") or 311.5 (" advertising or promoting matter represented to be obscene ", better known as " pandering obscenity " ) ") To have violated.

Glasser met before the trial a deal with the Justice of California and paid 1,000 US dollars penance after his operation, agreed to not object to the charge of " creating public nuisance " ( public nuisance ) raise. In return, all other profanity allegations were dropped. In Family Business , he spoke about the court case and used it as a stepping stone to raise money for his free speech campaign.
