Director: Marty Stevens.
Cast: Sebastian Bonnet, Joel D’amici, Josh Elliot, Pascal Etty, Luke Hamill, Tim Hamilton, Roman Chaykin, Davy Paxton, Bolek Polanski, Oleg Tarkowski, Marc Vidal.
The Bel Ami guys are busy jetting around the world, shooting movies and having fun. Sometimes, though, they need to kick back, relax and have some recreational sex. Undressed Rehearsals, Part One takes viewers behind the scenes of a few movies that were shot three or four years ago. We travel to South Africa, Greece and Brazil with the crew and discover in six scenes what really went on when the cameras stopped rolling (and a different set of cameras started!). Roman Chaykin and Oleg Tarkowski were filming Out of Africa in 2004 when they met up for their lighthearted session with director Marty Stevens. They tease and play, suck and fuck. Roman even jumps up to pee in the middle of it all. Guess that’s what makes it a “private affair,” as the box promises. Tim Hamilton and Luke Hamill sunbathe at the beach then retire to a plush sofa so Hamill can “experience live” what he has already seen Hamilton do onscreen. Josh Elliot and Marc Vidal tell the cameraman they have something “interesting” to show him, and they deliver with some great 69 action. Vidal rides Elliot like a cowboy until they both explode. Bolek Polanski and Davy Paxton hit the showers for a sexy massage, while Hamill returns for a sweet wrestling match with Pascal Etty. Finally, Sebastian Bonnet flashes his gorgeous smile for Joel D’amici in a hot tub romp that leads to a sunlit shower BJ and more. Beautiful models and photography abound here, as usual. Nice sets and glamorous locales only add to the overall high quality. The picture looks great, and every foreskin and freckle are lovingly captured. Director Stevens, along with producer George Duroy, know how to put on a show, even when the players are supposedly off the clock—and cock! (Bel Ami)

Specialty Publications, the Los Angeles–based producer of Unzipped, Men, Freshmen and  magazines, is being put on the block by its owner. PlanetOut Inc. announced today that it is considering putting the adult division up for sale. In a statement to investors, executives from PlanetOut, which also owns mainstream gay publications Out and The Advocate, said that the possible sale was due to the fact that Specialty’s titles did not fit the ad-revenue-driven model of the other PlanetOut businesses. But they also stressed that the division was a “highly separable business and an excellent acquisition opportunity.” For more information on the publisher, visit www.specpub.com.
In a related story, the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that PlanetOut Inc. is now fighting for survival. The San Francisco owner of the media company disclosed this week that it will run out of money before the end of the year without a major infusion of cash. The dire situation is a consequence of PlanetOut’s declining subscriptions for personal ads, a shortfall in advertising revenue and trouble booking passengers on its gay-oriented cruises. A dismal first-quarter earnings report on Wednesday hammered home the reality.
“This is deeply disappointing and concerning to me and the rest of the management team,” Karen Magee, PlanetOut’s chief executive officer, said in a conference call with analysts Wednesday. “We’ve got major work to do at PlanetOut to generate the healthy revenue growth and solid earnings performance that I believe this company is capable of producing.”
Gay company Paladin has agreed to distribute Jim Steel’s Beach House Diaries, the first release from the newly relaunched Men of Odyssey.
“There was never a doubt who I wanted for this production,” says Bob East of Odyssey. “From the day we first talked about starting up, I said, ‘We need a top-notch distributor that specializes in gay material behind this line.’ Paladin was the immediate choice based on our previous track record with them.”
Paladin was the exclusive distributor for Men of Odyssey in its first incarnation, only ending its association when the company closed in 2003. During that time, it distributed hits such as Idol in the Sky, Ryker’s Revenge and The Journey Back. Paladin also released the award-winning Echoes and Carnal Intentions.
Jim Steel’s Beach House Diaries stars Jesse Santana, Luca Alexander and Brad Benton (pictured, above), in addition to Christian Owen, Tory Mason, Barrett Long, Cole Ryan, John Wright and Romario. It is scheduled for release in July. For more information, visit www.menofogv.com.

Following his outing on Page Six of the New York Post, Raging Stallion exclusive Roman Ragazzi has issued a statement through the studio. In a press release, the company says that Ragazzi was “unshaken by the news” of his resignation from the Israeli consulate in New York City and is “eager to get fully behind” his new career in porn.
His first film is Collin O’Neal’s Miami, due out on May 11. His second feature, and first for Raging Stallion, is Michael Brandon’s Tailpipes, which is scheduled for a June 15 release. Ragazzi will also star in Chris Ward’s military epic, Grunts, which is set for filming this summer. Ragazzi is also slated to appear at IML in Chicago later this month and at San Francisco’s Gay Pride in June.
“Roman is really in the hot seat right now,” says Ward, president of Raging Stallion Studios. “He is getting lots of mainstream media exposure, which is almost all negative. There is a great deal of pornophobia and homophobia in the reporting. I am proud of Roman for standing up for his own sexual identity. He is a proud, sex-positive gay man who has earned my respect and admiration. On the upside for Roman, he will make a lot more money working for us than he did for the consulate!”

Director: Dink Flamingo.
Cast: Cliff, Damien, Cole, Brennan.
Active Duty founder Dink Flamingo and his military men are back in Action. The third installment in the series finds hottie Cliff and a few other “straight” guys doing their thing for the persuasive director. In fact, Cliff, a husky man with ample nipples and a certain bucktooth charm, appears in all three scenes. First, he jacks for Flamingo’s camera, revealing that he doesn’t like being labeled and his previous job is no longer “an obstacle” to him appearing on camera. (Based on the casts of Flamingo’s previous productions, we can only guess his former career.) Dink seems thrilled to have Cliff in his bed, and he guides the tattooed hunk through a long, sometimes boring solo session. Next, Cliff returns to initiate thin newbie Damien, who nervously watches porn before sucking some cock. These two couldn’t look more uncomfortable if they tried. They awkwardly trade BJs, and Cliff pounds Damien’s sweet butt in many positions. In the end, Dink and the models agree that Damien has been successfully “corrupted.” Cliff is back for the final scene, but supercute Cole steals the movie in an extended threeway with Cliff and shy Southern guy Brennan. This dude trio hang out and drink beer before Flamingo coaxes them into the shower. It’s there that Cole reveals his toned physique and oversize cock. Although he says he is straight, Cole leads the oral and anal action when the group moves to the bedroom. Brennan, also straight, bottoms for both guys and takes their loads on his worked-out body. The excitement level in this scene wanes early on, but studly Cole does his best to keep things interesting. Picture quality is good, sound quality is dodgy, and the amateur camera work is shaky at times. But that is part of the appeal of these movies—that, and watching these nongay cocksuckers hone their skills. Practice makes perfect, guys! (Pink Bird Media/Active Duty)
