It’s the last post of the year, so let’s end it with double the cuteness. Sean Cody has found what may be the discovery of the year…and just in the nick of time! Gorgeous Jeff and John are identical twins who just turned 19. “I’ve known many sets of twins,” Cody says, “but I don’t think I’ve ever seen any as connected as these two.” Connected indeed! Just take a look at their hot j/o scene at seancody.com. (We know, the whole incest thing is kinda freaky, but what if your bro looked like this!?) Jeff (longer hair) and John (shorter hair) both identify as straight and say that they haven’t done anything sexual together (we guess jacking doesn’t count). Fun fact: Although the twins are identical, their cocks are not. “Jeff’s is longer and curves to his right, while John’s is shorter and straighter,” Cody reveals. Good to know! We’d also like to know where he finds cuties like these—and may we all be so blessed in 2009. Happy new year, guys!
QueerClick has picked its guy. The editorial board of the fab gay site has named hunky Leo Giamani (above) as its Man of the Year, saying that “no one captivated our hearts and cocks in 2008” like him. Giamani is a former cop (or fireman, depending which source you believe) from Philadelphia who first appeared on the gay porn scene with Internet work for Randy Blue, Jake Cruise and Mighty Men. The big stud recently relocated to Los Angeles, which is a good sign for porn fans. For more of handsome Leo, visit QC’s Fan Club page at QueerClick.com.

Directrix Chi Chi LaRue opened her eponymous adult boutique in West Hollywood last week and attracted the porn chic elite for the opening-night party. Seen (from top): supercute Channel 1 exclusive Blake Riley; a suddenly hirsute Barrett Long, taking a break from his new xxxAmateurHour.com site; porn stud Tyler Saint, who helped serve some très gay pink champagne; exclusive Johnny Hazzard with Big Brother vet Marcellas Reynolds; shopkeeper LaRue herself, dressed to match her vibrantly colored store, with bloggers Perez Hilton and Jason Sechrest of JasonCurious.com. Looks like a good time was had by all—now where’s the dildo section?

Porn cutie Kirk Cummings (above) has a past…as an American Idol reject! The Sword has learned that the newbie auditioned for the show a couple of seasons back, sporting an androgynous hair-don’t and belting an old Whitney Houston hit. Guess he got his revenge on judges Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul by starring in movies for Channel 1, Falcon and Hot House, and by appearing on the cover of Freshmen mag. But the twink hasn’t given up on his musical aspirations and has now released a single titled “Badass.” Sing out, Louise!…Just what the world needs—another blog! Directrix Chi Chi LaRue has announced the return of her Hot Tracker, where for the past three years she has shared online her life, travels, celebrity encounters and the happenings of her friends, fans and Channel 1 exclusives. LaRue jokes, “Alright, bitches, my blog is back and better than ever, because now all you nasty bloggers who like to leave rude comments and industry insiders who like to post under anonymous names…can!�” No way! Someone leaving a nasty comment on a blog!? For more, visit www.C1R.com.…Porn star Luke Hass (below) has left the building…or at least his home at Raging Stallion Studios. The onetime exclusive, who has appeared in films such as Grunts and Savage, has announced on his blog that it’s now time to “turn this page and embrace new things.” He says he has decided to “fly solo” and that he wants to “experience the industry, work for other companies, with other models and also do porn in a different way.” Hass says he has no gripes with RSS but hints that some of the “fire” died when company partner Michael Brandon dropped out of sight and left the fold to deal with his recent troubles.

It’s that time of year again, guys—when we take a much-needed break from the glitz and glamour of gay porn. We will be posting on and off until the new year hits, so keep checking back. Oh, and we are happy to announce that we have a winner in our “Dead Guys” calendar contest. Jason LaRue (no relation to Chi Chi) of Hillsville, Virginia, is the reader who amused us the most with his ideas for a crazy-ass sequel to Raging Stallion’s To the Last Man epic in which the ghosts of the murdered guys come back to haunt their killers—or something like that! Anyway, congrats to Jason. We’d also like to give a shoutout to our loyal readers, who visit on a daily basis and continue to support VincentLambert.com as we enter our second year. Stick with us, studs. And hey, we’ve got a new president on the way, so 2009 can only be better, yes? Happy holidays!

Falcon Entertainment has announced that directors Steve Cruz and Leif Gobo have begun production on Red Light, the second installment of their “Color Box” trilogy for Mustang Studios. While their first film, Blue Movie, paid homage to porn flicks of the 1970s and ’80s, Red Light will examine the world of sex for hire. Four scenarios will feature Josh West and Jake Dakota as two street hustlers who have hot back-alley sex; Leo Giamani picking up hooker Vince Ferelli (above) for a down-and-dirty backseat romp; pimp Diesel Washington teaching his protégé how to work hard for the money; and executive Bruno Bond hiring Tyler Saint to dominate him. Red Light is set for a February 2009 Web and DVD release. For more information, visit www.falconstudios.com.

The alleged rape case of porn star Mason Wyler has been dropped. The Dallas Voice is reporting that no charges will be filed in the incident that supposedly took place last fall. Local police told the gay publication that the case was closed because “the complainant is not wanting to participate in the investigation…therefore, we cannot prove that any of this really occurred.” Wyler, who has appeared in many movies, including Just Add Water, Cock Tease and The Porne Ultimatum, caused a stir among the press when he posted on his blog details of an alleged attack that involved him and his boyfriend being drugged and abused at gunpoint by a military officer and his friends. Now, Wyler has apparently decided that he doesn’t want to cooperate with detectives, so the case is officially closed. But have we heard the last of it?
Black Scorpion Video exclusive performer D.O. (above) will be the centerpiece of a new advertising campaign by edgy fashion label Rufskin. The lean and ripped stud can be seen in a series of print ads modeling Rufskin Swimwear, Rufskin Denim and Rufskin Sport. On the porn side, D.O. has been nominated for a 2009 XBIZ Award as GLBT Performer of the Year. His official blog can be found at www.dionisioheiderscheid.blogspot.com.…The landmark Castro Theatre will once again house the GAYVN Awards. The show will return to the historic theater on Saturday, March 28, 2009. The 11th-Annual GAYVN Awards will be presented by NakedSword and feature three days of events, all culminating with the show known as the Oscars of Gay Porn. Harker Jones, editor-in-chief of GAYVN magazine, says, “Returning to the Castro marks a triumphant return to the venue where we put on what is considered one of our best shows ever—the 2007 GAYVNs, hosted by Emmy winner and Grammy nominee Kathy Griffin.” For more information, visit gayvnawards.avn.com.…It seems that director Tony Dimarco’s first solo effort for Raging Stallion, The Drifter, has produced more than a great film. We’re hearing that co-stars Logan McCree and Vinnie D’Angelo (below), who met while shooting the very Brokeback Mountain love story, have been dating for several months and are successfully maintaining a long-distance relationship (tattooed love boy McCree lives in Germany and Vinnie is based in Chicago). Awww, now isn’t that sweet. Who said love only happens in the movies? For more on The Drifter, visit ragingstallion.com.

The Big Penis Book had its New York launch on Wednesday at the Leslie/Lohman Gallery in Soho. Cover model Chad Hunt was there to autograph the weighty tome from Taschen, along with featured photographer Charles Hovland of Chuckpixxx.com. Hunt is back in New York following a stint in Los Angeles and will soon be busy promoting his bottoming debut (and possibly last film!) in Dirty Bird Pictures new release Endgame. Stay tuned for our exclusive interview with superstar Chad and hear what it was really like for him to take on three hot tops! Also seen: Jason Crew (above with Hunt and model Rusty, left), who isn’t in the book but deserves to be, if you know what we mean; model Obsession, who barely fits on a page of the oversize coffee table book; and porn star-artist Spike, who posed with one of the paintings from his Cybererotic series, also on display at the gallery. Who knew dick could be so artistic?

Director: Jim Steel.
Cast: Trevor Knight, Kurt Wild, Jude Collin, Lucas Knowles, Brant Moore, Dempsey Stearns, Jayden Holloway, Riley Burke, Sebastian Rivers, Braxton Bond, Enrique Currero.
Five scenes from veteran director Jim Steel center around the fantasy of guys lusting after their brother’s best friend. Jude Collin sends his bro on a wild goose chase so he can spy on Lucas Knowles as he showers. Soon they are jacking together and trading oral. This scene is short, but Collin is an impressive top. Brant Moore also hits the shower before a rehearsal dinner for his brother’s wedding with Dempsey Stearns, who gets a major blowjob. These two cuties never get around to anal, but they do share juicy cum shots on each other. The sibling theme gets stretched a bit for the threeway among Jayden Holloway, Riley Burke and Sebastian Rivers, but who cares? When the guys can’t pay their bar tab, their friendly bartender lets them take it out in trade. Rivers, sporting a sexy shaved head, gets his ass eaten big-time while Riley Burke bangs blond buddy Holloway (who needs to lose that red bandanna). Braxton Bond nurses buddy Enrique Currero after he gets injured during a game, and they both end up on the bottom when they flip-flop fuck. Bond and Currero have good chemistry and deliver splashy pop shots.
But cover models Trevor Knight and Kurt Wild steal the movie with their pairing. Knight is on the receiving end of a long, wet knob job from Wild, who looks just innocent enough to be surprised when Knight gets verbal with him and slaps his fine ass. The inspired dirty talk leads to Knight having Wild recite the alphabet with his dick in his mouth. Genius! There are some abrupt edits here, but the energetic sex makes up for it. The sight of Wild squirming as Knight rides his young butt is almost as hot as their nearly simultaneous cum shots. This scene is surely a keeper, and Knight and Wild deserve an award. (Suite 703)

We’ve written about the book, and we’ve written about the L.A. party last summer. Now, New York City is getting its chance to celebrate oversized cock! Publisher TASCHEN and the Leslie/Lohman Art Foundation are hosting a book signing with featured photographers Charles Hovland (of Chuckpixxx.com) and James Bidgood tonight, Wednesday, December 17, from 6 to 8pm at the Leslie/Lohman Gallery (26 Wooster Street). Numerous hung porn stars are included on the pages of this gorgeous coffee-table book (and superstar Chad Hunt graces the cover), so we wouldn’t be surprised to see him and a few other hotties mingling here. Fans should feel free to come on down and rub…elbows with them. See you there, NYC readers! For more, visit www.taschen.com.
Another day, another calendar—but this one wasn’t made for the masses. In an attempt to promote its big year-end release To the Last Man, Raging Stallion Studios has created a limited-edition calendar titled “They Died With Their Boots On.” The grisly piece features the cast of the Western epic (including Jimmy Tripps, above, and Antonio Biaggi, below) in their bloody death photos (although, did anyone notice that lifetime exclusive Ricky Sinz goes unscatched?). Fans have been referring to it as the “dead porn star calendar,” but RSS president Chris Ward says that it was intended to be used only as a private marketing tool and was never meant to be put on sale for the general public. “We sent it out to reviewers and people in the industry,” Ward explains. “It’s a rather horrific calendar—not something you would want to look at every day. It was a limited run, numbered and signed by photographer Geof Teague, so if there are any left over after our marketing needs, we can decide if we want to offer them to our customers.”
Well, VincentLambert.com received one (number 139 out of 500!) and because we don’t want to look at it every day either, we’re going to offer it to one of our lucky readers! Just write to us at VincentLambertNYC@gmail.com and tell us why you would want this rare collectible (be creative) and the best answer (decided by us) wins. (Sorry, guys, we only got one calendar, so there can only be one winner.) Deadline is Friday, December 19, at midnight. Yes, we are extending to give readers two more days to tell us why they want to look at “deceased” porn stars in 2009. And no, the winner won’t be Last Man director Tony Dimarco, who wrote in to jokingly say that he deserves the calendar because he “sweated blood to make this film…and I was there!” Better luck next time, Tony!

Today’s the day! Chi Chi LaRue’s, West Hollywood’s newest and only gay-owned and -operated adult boutique, will open for business. The store, located at 8932 Santa Monica Boulevard, will feature 2,000-plus titles from the Channel 1 Releasing catalog, including the entire Rascal, All Worlds, Catalina and Dirk Yates libraries. It will also offer DVDs, novelties, lubricants, condoms, apparel, cards, photo books, calendars and performance enhancers. “Everyone at Channel 1 has been working so hard to make this place a reality,” directrix/C1R partner LaRue says. “I just know this place is going to be a big hit!”…Falcon Entertainment has appointed Bruno Gmünder Publishing and Distribution as its exclusive partner for European distribution and public relations. Starting this month, Bruno Gmünder will distribute all new releases from Falcon Studios, Mustang Studios, the Jocks Roadtrip series, Massive Studio, Falcon Str8men as well as a large inventory of classic catalog titles. Both companies plan further partnerships in Web, sex-toy offerings and high-quality photo books.…We’re hearing that two gay porn stars are taking a turn toward the straight (but not the narrow). Studly Diesel Washington (below) has revealed on his blog that he has some projects coming up that “involve women.” The onetime Titan Media exclusive writes, “I have always been bi, [but] all my work has been with men, so I’m happy to report that I will be doing straight porn. This is a major turning point for me. Hopefully I won’t lose my gay fan base, but I want to gain a bigger fan base.” Similarly, Raging Stallion lifetime exclusive Ricky Sinz has bought out a former partner in HoleAndAHeartbeat.com, a straight amateur site he started three years ago that caters to hard-core tattooed men having raunchy sex with women. Sinz says he will continue to share his gay side exclusively for RSS. Good luck with the ladies, guys. Better you than us!

Falcon Entertainment has announced the re-signing of both Roman Heart and TJ Hawke as exclusive models. Heart (above) has appeared in 22 films since being introduced by Falcon in 2004 and won Best Newcomer at both the GAYVN and Grabby Awards in 2006. This year he has starred in six Falcon films, including Overtime, Roman’s Holiday and the newly released Malibu Heat.
Hawke (below) will enter into his second year with Falcon after appearances in films such as Rough Play, Fleet Week, Afterparty and Best Men, Part 2. He also criss-crossed the country on Manhunt’s 7 Sexy Sins club tour earlier this year. Hawke’s latest film, Asylum, will be released in late January.
“It’s rare for one studio to have as many superstars as Falcon does,“ says Troy Prickett, Falcon’s director of promotion. “With a stable of men that includes Heart, Hawke, Matthew Rush, Erik Rhodes, Aden and Jordan Jaric, Tony Capucci and up-and-comer Ty Colt, I don’t think we could have a stronger roster of talent. They are all superstars in their own unique ways, but they also all have that unmistakable iconic Falcon look.”

SF Weekly has printed an update to its great story about the trials and tribulations of gay porn star Michael Brandon. Now, writer Ashley Harrell reports that the man who made “Monster” a household name (in gay households anyway) has entered a supervised rehab recovery program. Brandon, who has admitted his addiction to crystal meth and currently faces drug charges, says that there is a chance he could still avoid prison and be back before the porn cameras sometime next year.
The paper says that since Brandon (pictured left with boyfriend Marcos Monzon) entered treatment, which included a 45-day detox, he has gained 32 pounds and found a new Narcotics Anonymous sponsor. His next court date is December 22.
Brandon, who did the bulk of his work for Raging Stallion Studios as an exclusive model, director and part owner, wants his fans to know, “I’m not leaving the industry. Hell, no. I spent the better part of 10 years creating my name, and I love my fans.”
He may have recently signed with Channel 1 Releasing as an exclusive, but that doesn’t mean Jeremy Bilding can’t be king of the Mountain. The handsome stud stars for Jet Set Men in John Tegan’s directorial debut, Muscle Mountain, the story of nine built and well-hung young hunks—including Jet Set exclusives Derec Stone, Marcus Steele and David Dakota—who take advantage of one another and their surroundings at an isolated ranch high atop a mountain. Bilding appears in a threeway with Stone and Chris Thomas in which he sucks both guys and tops Thomas. For more information, visit www.jetsetmen.com.

Hung stud Marcelo Mastro (above) has been named 2008 AMG Brasilian of the Year. The studio bestowed the award on Mastro following the release of Rio, his third film for AMG. In the past year, the 25-year-old Rio de Janeiro native has also appeared in numerous magazines, including Freshmen, Latin Inches and XXX Showcase. “Every year there’s one performer that really stands out in our films,” AMG president Dennis Bell says, “and this year it was Marcelo.” In response to winning the honor, Mastro commented, “Everyone always told me I had a nice cock, but I never thought it would take me this far.”…Pacific Sun Entertainment has announced that amateur/muscle label Sharpshooter Studios will join its roster. “Sharpshooter videos have always been packed with detailed and ample nudity of the most handsome, well-defined and masculine men from around the world,” the studio says. The first release, Muscle Explosion, Volume 5, is out today. For more information, visit gaymagix.com.…Has anyone been following the gay porn subplot on Desperate Housewives? Do the Gays even watch that show anymore? It turns out that actor Todd Grinnell (we remember him from the Four Kings sitcom a few years back) has turned up as the boyfriend of Bree’s son. Last night it was revealed that his character has a gay porn past, starring in a film called Rear Deployment, which Bree kindly tracks down for her baby boy. Sorry, no clips were shown, but at least sexy Todd (below) is back in prime time!

Directrix Chi Chi LaRue held her annual birthday event last week at Here Lounge in West Hollywood, and what kind of exclusives would her company, Channel 1 Releasing, have if they didn’t show up to wish the big gurl well on her big day? Superstar exclusives Blake Riley and Johnny Hazzard (above) were in attendance, looking hot and being supportive. Wonder whether we’ll ever see these two cuties in a scene together!

COLT Studio Group has released its renowned calendars for 2009, and they are as hot as always, featuring numerous exclusive screen studs, including Mitch Branson (whose excellent Groove Compass CD might make a good gift for your favorite dancing queen) and Ricky Parks. The studio is also offering a line of greeting cards this year for the sexy men in your own life. They come in a set of four, and you can find them at COLTstudiostore.com.
Jet Set Men and CollegeDudes247.com have announced the signing of smooth muscle stud Adam Campbell to a dual exclusive contract with both companies. “There’s a new dark-haired, ice-blue-eyed superstar-in-the-making by the name of Adam Campbell, and Jet Set and CollegeDudes247 have got him!” Jet Set head Chris Steele says. CollegeDudes247’s Aaron Sherman adds: “When Adam came in to do his recent scene with Titus Gallen, we all knew right away that he was a star in the making that we absolutely had to sign!”
Campbell is a Midwest native who just turned 19 in September. He got into gay porn at a friend’s suggestion, doing his first scene a few months ago for CollegeDudes247, in which he topped Gallen. Campbell is expected to begin filming his first Jet Set film soon, and it will be available in early 2009. He will also continue to do scenes for CollegeDudes247.

Raging Stallion Studios has joined forces with 10% Productions for the second year in a row to produce not one but two great new calendars. Stallions features a lineup of RSS’s classic hunks, including Steve Cruz (above), Roman Ragazzi, Brodie Sinclair, Max Schutler, Ricky Sinz and Barrett Long. Grunts is a series of images taken on the set of the award-winning military epic that took most of the major awards earlier this year. Featured models include Jake Deckard (below), RJ Danvers, Luke Hass, Justin Christopher, Antonio Biaggi and Rafael Alencar. Both calendars are shot by Raging Stallion’s lead photographer Kent Taylor (who is also the creator of the studio’s excellent new picture book Magnum—more on that soon) and are available at local gay bookstores and on amazon.com and 10percent.com. Hey, it’ll be 2009 before you know it, guys, so why not plan to spend it with an RSS stud? For more information, visit www.ragingstallion.com.
