The name 'Khan Tusion' is a pun on 'contusion' (bruising). There is very
little personal information in the public domain about the elusive Tusion,
however according to
he is Mark Handel, brother of talk radio host and Nobel Peace Prize nominee
]. He does
give interviews but always under his monicker. Mr. Tusion opts to produce
his staple of rough sex forays in a wholly
fashion, using his
or pen name, a practice which is not uncommon among producers of creative
works, but a practice which sometimes invites a degree of criticism and
suspicion. During individual 'Meatholes' scenes, Tusion's face deliberately
never appears on camera.
According to published interviews with Mr. Tusion, he has been in the adult
industry since around 1992. He is widely known for also creating the 1999
'Rough Sex' franchise of videos for the 'Anabolic' production house. These
controversial films were both lauded and scorned in the adult community.

Mr. Tusion is regarded by many as a fervent
as his work often portrays female actors engaging in seemingly highly
degrading acts. Further evidence of this can be gleaned from the fact Mr.
Tusion always opts to sit behind the camera, engaging in often abusive
and offering viewers his own special brand of commentary,
often taunting the performer with unguarded yet carefully aimed tyrades of
, perhaps to subject the female performer to some degree of
Viewers hear a non-stop background track of suggestive quips from Tusion,
which can vary from anything from cynical enquiry about the performer's
childhood or adolescent sexual experience to simmering, venomous, verbal
assaults which ooze with unadulterated fury.
From behind the scenes Mr. Tusion orders and orchestrates
, his 'Meatholes' male performers almost
enthusiastically carrying out Tusion's bidding on the female performer. As
previously mentioned, Tusion often likes to press his foot, dressed in a
on the open genitals of female performers. It could be said that his foot
and lower leg feature prominently in the 'Meatholes'
but never any of his defining features. He remains anonymous throughout.
However it can be said that through anecdotal evidence that it can be
determined that he is in fact a white male in approximately his mid forties.
Mr. Tusion is said to be a wealthy real estate speculator and family man, if
this is indeed the case, then this could perhaps be posited as the catalyst
for his anonymous orientation as an artist.
Khan Tusion is widely considered one of the most extreme pornographers
producing works today, furthermore Mr. Tusion is often compared to fellow
rough sex producer
, although arguably Tusion is far more hardcore and extreme than
indeed Mr. Hardcore is.
Controversy swirls around Khan Tusion's pseudonymous guise and consequently
there is a race to 'unmask' the secret identity of porn's darkest horse. Of
particular interest is perhaps a photograph taken at a Meatholes shoot
containing a number of unidentified men, linked here:[photo

And this controversy over Mr. Tusion's anonymous stance as a producer has
been voiced by other adult industry professionals, including producers and
performers alike. These individuals question Mr. Tusion's motives for
chosing to remain anonymous, citing Mr. Tusion's massive success as a 21st
century pornographer as ample reason for him to participate in the adult
industry with a public face. They posit the runaway success of 'Meatholes',
and his previous award winning work, coupled with untold levels of
subscribership to 'Meatmembers' online consumer services ample reason for
him to finally step into the light.
Other theories on Mr. Tusion's stance could be that he fears facing being
charges by the federal government, as witnessed in the 2004
government legal pursuit of fellow ultrahardcore pornographer
. Or, Tusion may simply wish to circumvent the cult of
personality which seems to engulf other pioneering pornographers like

anonymity, but one thing is for sure, scores of interested parties are
looking for the real story behind the man behind the meat.
Several DVD compilations of Meatholes scenes have been commercially released
through production house
, creators and distributors of the highly acclaimed
series. Tusion's brand expanded in 2004 to form the "Meatmembers Network", a
subscriber based service where consumers may access other Khan Tusion
franchises such as "Pissmops" (a defunct 'Meatholes' related male on female
based series). Online subscribers can access the entire canon of 'Meatholes'
scenes, streamed in high quality WMV format. Also, on
Meatholes videos are very heavily traded. 'Meatholes', according to Google
Trends, is a runaway success also in Denmark, but was most sought after by
Britons. Figures from across the western world suggest the series is fast
becoming an adult industry giant. Tusion's 'Meatmembers Network' continues
to grow in popularity exponentially and doesn't show any sign of slowing
