Event: Lucas Virgin Megastore Signing


Michael Lucas is at it again—breaking down doors and taking New York’s gay-porn industry places it has never been. On Wednesday, June 21, 2006, Lucas, president and CEO of Lucas Entertainment, and 10 of his top models invaded Manhattan’s Virgin Megastore for a first-ever in-store signing and Q&A session. At the height of Manhattan’s Gay Pride week festivities, the group drew a crowd of more than 100 eager fans. “We are the first gay adult entertainment company to do something like this in New York,” Lucas said. “It is a breakthrough for the industry.”

The event, hosted by drag queen Hedda Lettuce, featured exclusives such as Chad Hunt (whose 11-year-old son, Aaron, cheered him on from the audience), Wilson Vasquez (pictured above), Ben Andrews, Jack MacCarthy, Tony Ryder, Corey Cade, J., Lorenzo, Jack Bond and Harold Pitt. The screen studs greeted the public and signed recent Lucas releases, including Encounters: The Point of No Return, Auditions Volume 9: Chad Hunt and GAYVN’s 2005 Best Picture winner, Michael Lucas’ Dangerous Liaisons.

Questions ranged from the predictable (How did you get into porn?) to the personal (Have you ever fallen in love with a costar?) to the serious (How has the Internet affected DVD sales?). Lucas chided J. into showing his chiseled abs, and one fan request prompted a few of the models to make out onstage. As usual, the controversial director caused the biggest commotion, initiating a cockfight between Hunt and Andrews over who is packing the most meat. With more than nine inches apiece, these guys have nothing to worry about!

“We are very happy with the turnout,” Lucas said. “I hear that when Tommy Lee was here he had only about 20 people show up! Virgin Megastore is very happy too; they told us that they sold hundreds of Lucas videos over the past few days.”

Movie Review: Mansize: Jailhouse Cock, Part 1


Director: Csaba Borbely.
Cast: Helmut Müller, Lucio Maverick, Julio Carillo, Kristoff Caine, Alfredo Castaldo, Evan Rochelle, Glenn Santoro, Claudio Antonelli, Kevin Cage, Andreas Harris, Ken Spencer, Antonio Carrigan, Ettore Valentino, Fredy Costa.

Director Csaba Borbely is back with another episode of Mansize. This time, it’s Jailhouse Cock, Part 1, the tale of five horny prisoners who arrive at a penal colony where crooked guards and a corrupt warden make their lives hell—or is it heaven? Based on the amount of hot sex these guys have, it seems to be the latter. Five drawn-out scenes tell the story, as the cast of hung and uncut foreign studs do their thing. The first scene is a fourgy in which Kevin Cage shows off his great pecs and big dick. There’s lots of deep sucking and fucking. There’s also that annoying nonstop moaning and bad fake-orgasm acting. But if you can overlook that and the mind-numbing soundtrack, this scene is a keeper. Next, Antonio Carrigan acts out a typical prisoner/guard scenario on a flight of stairs. If you ask us, supercute Julio Carillo deserves to be in jail because he steals the next scene. This solo jacker has a stunning body and mouthwatering abs. Oh yeah, three other guys also perform a difficult threeway train fuck, but it’s Carillo who made off with our hearts! In the next predictable scene, a guard trades some cigarettes for cock. Finally, one prisoner (or is he actually an undercover cop?) overthrows the horny warden, who has been spying on the fun via cam all along. This story will be continued in the next installment, if anyone understands enough of the heavily accented dialogue to care! Borbely falls into his usual rut of long, tedious scenes featuring perfect but passionless models; picture quality is excellent, though, and the cool prison location adds a nice touch of reality.
