Nicholas T. Boyias, who "distributes his adult films through his Marina Pacific Distributors" and "got his filmmaking start in porn" [1], is currently treasurer (2006) and recently served as president (2005) of the Free Speech Coalition.

"Boyias, who serves as a Quinceañera executive producer along with adult film colleague Avi Raccah, says he was intentionally vague about his background because he feared Quinceañera, which Sony Pictures Classics [released August 4, 2006], would be attacked by anti-pornography critics, thus hurting its ticket sales.

"'There are groups out there who will peg us all as people who have no concern for mainstream family values,' says Boyias, who describes himself as a Republican, NRA-supporting, churchgoing parent of four." [2]

After a childhood in Laeger, West Virginia and adolescence in Athens, Greece, Nick attended Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan for two years, and then moved to Los Angeles in 1970.

Marina Pacific Distributors

"Marina Pacific specializes in gay product, but distributes a wide range of gay and straight lines, offering everything from bisexual to transsexual, specialty to fetish. 'We had another record breaking year — we just keep expanding and growing. It seems like almost every other week we're adding another vendor,' notes owner Nick Boyias. 'We decided it was time to bring the logo into the digital age, so to speak, and come up with a more modern looking logo, more appropriately reflecting advancements and changes in technology'," Bradley Jansen wrote for GayVN.com in 2006.

"Marina Pacific also has three production companies of its own: Jet Set Productions, a top gay line; Marina Pacific International, which mostly buys gay foreign product; and Matrock Adventures, a straight male/ female hardcore wrestling line that has won an AVN Best Specialty Release award." [13]

Boyias' Marina Pacific Distributors is the distributor for "Wet Palms" (2004), "The Tender Age 2" (2001), "Prime Cut Video Magazine: Vol. 3 (2001), "Cock Tail Gang Bang" (2000), "The Spank Club" (2000), and "Summer, the First Time" (1996). [14]
