News: Gay Porn Pig Site Says No to Bareback


Gay Porn Pig has announced that it has eliminated more than 500 links to bareback sex sites from its directory. All paysite and video reviews of bareback sex content were also removed, along with several dozen blog posts. “The gay online porn community needs a stronger voice to teach younger gay men how to protect themselves without sacrificing hot sex,” says Gay Porn Pig site owner and operator Michael Kealy. “Gay youth needs to get this message before it’s too late.”

Gay Porn Pig’s decision was made in hopes of steering visitors toward alternatives to bareback porn. The gay porn portal, which has been in operation for two years, has already added a resource section to its directory providing surfers with access to AIDS service organizations online. A more detailed information and resource section is planned for the site this spring.

“Many producers, like Titan Men, Hot House, Raging Stallion and Channel 1 Releasing, are producing videos showing us that condom sex is hot,” Kealy says. “But with bareback sites popping up faster than we can count—and thousands of Web masters promoting these sites—we’re losing the battle.”

Keith Webb, vice president of Titan Media, issued the following statement in support of the move: “We at Titan Media would like to personally commend and thank Michael for having the courage to do the right thing. Michael has chosen the interests and health of others in his community over his own personal self-interests. While others in the gay adult community continue to profit at the expense of the entire gay community, Michael has had the courage to stand up and say no more.”

Movie Review: Auditions, Volume 19



BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Director: Michael Lucas.
Cast: Michael Lucas, Christian Cruz, Jimmy, Trent Alexander, Danny B., Brian Bodine, Blu Kennedy, Nick Rider, Jason Ridge, Manuel Torres.

The latest entry in the Auditions series finds director Michael Lucas hosting a few big-name porn stars (Jason Ridge, Manuel Torres, Blu Kennedy) and a bunch of hopeful wannabes. When he’s not skewering the newbies for plucking their eyebrows, Lucas introduces a new bedroom set for the series. (Think 1970s paneled basement, or that Calvin Klein ad campaign that got banned for looking like kiddie porn!) The latest studs-in-training go through their paces in five tight scenes. Pale redhead Kennedy provides a lovely study in contrasts with black stud Brian Bodine. By the time these two flip-flop fuck, the sweat is dripping. New lovers Danny B. and Nick Rider (together for two whole weeks!) reveal to Lucas that they met online. When Lucas discovers that Rider is a ballet dancer, he makes him do a split in the nude. New Lucas exclusive Christian Cruz (currently making a splash in the big-budget sex comedy The Intern) debuts here, sucking off a sullen Jimmy. Sure, Jimmy is hung, but would it kill him to smile? The bubbly Cruz is a workhorse, providing excellent oral and shooting with abandon. Lucas steps before the cameras for a scene with Trent Alexander, a beefy stud from Atlanta with a shy grin and a penchant for being spanked. Lucas complies, and sucks his toes, too. He also performs his infamous “helicopter” move (look it up!), which drives Alexander wild. Porn vets Jason Ridge and Manuel Torres close out the movie by interviewing each other (sans Lucas) and then performing like the pros they are. Torres shows off his great hairy chest and Ridge displays his perfect butt, which is greatly appreciated by Torres. Eventually, both shoot big loads on Ridge. The Audition films aren’t known for their high production values (Lucas saves those for a few big-budget movies per year), but the no-frills approach (harsh lighting, traffic noise in the background) only adds to the charm. Viewers will feel lucky to have wandered into this retro basement. (Lucas Entertainment)

Sneak Peek: Jake Deckard Gives Us Jock Itch


San Francisco–based Raging Stallion Studios has announced the completion of principal photography for the latest movie in its new Screaming Eagle XXX video line. Jock Itch—a sports-themed film (with a really unfortunate title) directed by Jake Deckard and featuring Steve Cruz, Logan McCree, Scott Tanner and Tyler Saint—will be released on March 28. “I think sports gear has a broad appeal in a sexual context,” says Deckard, who also stars in the movie and is nominated for two GAYVN Awards (Best Actor for Grunts and Performer of the Year). “I love jocks, socks, cleats, pads, all that shit, and while I was busy filming this video, it’s really developed into a full-on fetish for me.”

Raging Stallion Studios is the exclusive distributor of Screaming Eagle XXX, and the two companies have a close working relationship that allows Raging Stallion’s exclusive models to perform in Deckard’s productions. Jock Itch stars Cruz and McCree are both Raging Stallion exclusives.

“Jake has become one of the key players in the gay adult biz in just a few short years,” says Raging Stallion president Chris Ward. “He is our top actor at Raging Stallion, and his first film, Ink Storm, is one of the biggest hits of the year. He has that rare gift of really knowing what makes good erotica.”

Jock Itch will premiere during Black Party week in New York City. For more information, visit www.ragingstallion.com.

News: Vincent Lambert to Pen New XBIZ Column


VincentLambert.com site owner and operator Vincent Lambert is pleased to announce that, starting this month, he will be writing a new column for XBIZ magazine. The monthly column will be titled Dueling Divas With Spencer and Lambert and will be co-written with Jeremy Spencer, a longtime associate of Lambert’s and the new GLBT editor for XBIZ. Lambert, who has written extensively about the porn industry since 1996, has contributed to GAYVN, Unzipped and Manshots, among numerous other publications, and served as a judge for the GAYVN Awards for 10 years. Spencer worked as the gay editor for GAYVN magazine for four years and co-founded Adonis Pictures in 2004. He was also inducted to Gay Chicago’s prestigious Grabby Wall of Fame in 2005. Together, they will review new releases on a monthly basis in a freewheeling style reminiscent of renowned movie critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert.

“I’ve been reviewing movies for so long,” Lambert says, “that it will be fun and different to write with my old friend Jeremy and for us to bounce our thoughts and opinions off each other.” Spencer adds, “I’ve been wanting to do a column like this for a while, so when I landed my new position at XBIZ, it seemed like the perfect time and Vince seemed like the perfect person to write it with. So far, we’ve been all sunshine and lollipops with our reviews, but I can’t wait until we start going for each other’s jugulars!” “That’s right,” Lambert says, “readers will have to check out which of us draws first blood!”

XBIZ is a monthly magazine and daily news site that caters to the business side of the adult entertainment industry. The first installment of Dueling Divas With Spencer and Lambert will spotlight Men of Odyssey’s Beach House Diaries. Jerry Douglas’ Brotherhood will follow in February, and Jet Set Men’s Chris Steele/Chad Donovan extravaganza On Fire! will get the treatment in March.

Movie Review: Sleaze



BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Diredtor: John Bruno.
Cast: Dak Ramsey, Andrew Justice, Alexy Tyler, Justin Riddick, Derrick Hanson, Marco Paris, Marc Williams, Vin Nolan, Kamrun Assher, Ryann Wood.

Mustang Studios takes a walk on the sleazy side with its latest release. Four scenes run the gamut as an assortment of Mustang studs check into a seedy motel. Businessman Ryann Wood transforms from a suit guy to a collared leather daddy who first fucks himself with a big dildo then gets pounded by cowboy Andrew Justice. Marc Williams brings latest boy toy Derrick Hanson to a room for the enjoyment of pimp Vin Nolan. They all end up having a threeway in which Hanson takes on both men. Kamrun Assher is blackmailing a major action star (Marco Paris) with compromising photos in the next scene. Paris offers payment by sucking cock and topping the black stud. But the best scene doesn’t take place in a tacky room. Mustang exclusive Dak Ramsey (pictured, above) works the front desk as the tattooed night clerk. When hotties Alexy Tyler and Justin Riddick can’t afford a room, Ramsey allows them to take over the lobby for their tryst. Tyler sucks with glee and gets Ramsey so turned on that he starts to jack. Soon the hairy muscle hunk, who has a very sexy real-man quality, is topping Tyler himself (after Riddick cums and goes, that is). This scene and Ramsey—along with Hanson’s standout performance in his threeway—are highlights of Sleaze. Picture quality is fine, although lighting is harsh at times. One caveat: The final scene reloops at least two pieces of footage, leading us to believe that it might not have been as much sleazy fun as it looks. (Mustang Studios)

News: COLT Refutes Masi/Champ Statement


A few days ago we reported that porn stars Carlo Masi and Adam Champ would not be renewing their contracts with COLT Studio Group. This information was based on a press release the couple sent out themselves. Now, CEO John Rutherford and COLT are calling that into question with their own release. “We are in ‘normal’ negotiations with both Carlo and Adam,” it reads, “and we never officially received any press release from them, but others have sent it to us. Both Carlo and Adam’s contracts have not expired as of yet and both have a few months remaining. No matter the turnout, COLT has been around for over 40 years and expects to be around for another 40 years and beyond. COLT is a brand, a lifestyle and does not rely on any one person’s image or persona to make it iconic. History and the production of all the COLT Men over time keeps the name COLT as the most trusted name in erotic products.” Rutherford added, “If there’s one thing that is consistent in this business, it’s the inconsistency of this business.” Guess that means the buff bodybuilders aren’t as free to share their hot bods as they thought. Stay tuned!

News: Gladiator Militia Signs Endorsement Deal


We recently wrote about Alex “Militia” Castro, who currently appears on NBC’s hit show American Gladiators and has previously posed for COLT photographer Jim French using the name Elian Cortez. Now, The New York Post’s Page Six is reporting that the muscle hunk with the smooth dome has landed an endorsement deal. He is allegedly being paid $35,000 by HeadBlade to be the spokesperson for the company that produces head-care and men’s products. “Militia will play an important role enhancing our lifestyle brand across multiple media platforms as he continues to redefine the modern-era gladiator competition,” says HeadBlade president Todd Greene. Yup, bald is beautiful, baby!

Seen: Roman Heart, the Jarics and Shane at AEE


The pictures keep coming in from the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas last week. Porn actress Shane was signing across from the booth of www.sunshinedvd.com (the official site for the Men of Odyssey titles, including Beach House Diaries), and the queen of gonzo just couldn’t resist the gorgeous gay porn stars surrounding her. Among the studs she posed with: Falcon’s Roman Heart (um, what color is she?) and Aden and Jorden Jaric (above), Titan Media’s Dean Flynn and Diesel Washington, and Raging Stallion’s Jake Deckard. “This show was a blast!” Shane said. “I mean these guys were so hot, how could I stay away? If I do another one of these shows, I hope our booth is near the gay section. They’re way more fun than straight guys!”

Should Do Porn: Alan Ritchson


Who is this guy? He’s gorgeous, right? His name is Alan Ritchson, and he’s probably best known for playing Aquaman on the TV show Smallville. He started out as an Abercrombie & Fitch model. Can you tell? Alan is also a singer and appeared on Season 3 of American Idol, where he did some sort of striptease in a lame attempt to woo koo-koo judge Paula Abdul. But we’ll forgive him that, and all Alan has to do is one little thing: Should Do Porn!

News: Sam Dixon to Retire From Porn Industry



TOP PHOTO BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Former porn star Sam Dixon has announced that he is leaving the industry. Dixon, who is the founder and owner of Boiling Point Productions, Tipo Sesso, 1 Distribution and Carnaval Films, will also sell off his porn assets. In a press release, Dixon stated that “my business partner [former porn star Austin, pictured above with Dixon in 1998] and I have agreed that the time has come for us to go our separate ways and explore other ventures on our own outside of the adult industry.”

Dixon started as a model in the mid-’90s, after leaving his career as a police officer in his hometown in Maine. He appeared in such films as Four Men, Plugged In and No Way Out. He also dated porn star Jordan Young. In 1998, Dixon formed Boiling Point and started producing films, including Young Men on the Pleasure Trail.

Dixon assures fans that “there will be no variance in the day-to-day operations of any of these companies while seeking a suitable buyer. Customers can continue to be assured of the same high-quality service they have come to expect.”

News: Masi and Champ to Leave COLT Studios


Porn stars Carlo Masi and Adam Champ announced today that they would not be renewing their contracts with COLT Studio Group. In an e-mail sent out to press, the bodybuilder couple, who have appeared in such COLT productions as Hawaii and Waterbucks 2, said that the main reason for the split was that they “couldn’t find a money agreement that made both parties happy.” They also wanted more control over their images, blogs and Web sites. Masi and Champ say they made the decision only a few days ago, so they were still reviewing their options and setting up future work. They have already scheduled a number of events in Spain, Italy and Argentina for January and February. After that, Masi says, “The future for both Adam and me is a big book of empty pages, all waiting to be filled with new and exciting adventures.“ Their new Web sites will be www.Carlo-Masi.com and www.Adam-Champ.com.

Guy Candy: New COLT Man Ricky Parks


COLT Studio Group head John Rutherford has announced the signing of the latest COLT Man, Ricky Parks, who will make his debut in a new movie soon. “Ricky’s fun, personable and extremely sexy,” Rutherford says. “He’s got the cutest, boyish COLT Man looks, and we’re very excited to have him in our COLT Man stable of men.” We are, too!

New Release: Hungry 4 Sex 2


“Asian Sex Machine” Eric Hung returns for award-winning director Gino Colbert and his Gino Pictures in Hungry 4 Sex 2. The mega-hung Hung is paired with both Robert Van Damme (as a personal trainer who gets a great workout from Eric) and Nick Capra (as a hungry guy who orders take-out food and ends up feeding Eric) in this sequel to Hungry 4 Sex. In the final fourgy scene, Hung heads to the boxing ring where he is tied up and pleasured by Kevin Armstrong, Damon Phoenix and Jason Crew. He proceeds to impressively top all three studs with his massive mushroom head.

“I have never worked with an actor who manages to keep a total erection from start to finish in the sex scenes,” says Colbert of Hung. “This guy is amazing! Even though the edited boxing scene will be less than 30 minutes, it took us over three hours to shoot. Hung was tied to the side of the boxing gym the whole time and his cock never wavered. Even during our several 20-minute breaks, Eric just watched everyone and smiled with his ultra-thick cock standing straight up in the air.”

Seen: Branson and Phoenix at Hustlaball


Along with half the gay-porn industry, COLT Man Mitch Branson was spotted at Hustlaball in Las Vegas last weekend. The hairy hunk hung out in the VIP lounge at Krave nightclub, representing COLT and its VOD partners MaleFlixxx.tv. And who should Branson happen to run into? None other than porn superstar Dean Phoenix, who was also appearing at the event with his On Fire! cast mates. Yes, a hot time was had by all!

News: Aaron James Signs With Jet Set Men


Jet Set Men has announced the signing of its latest exclusive model, Aaron James, who will make his debut in the soon-to-be released Chris Steele/Chad Donovan film On Fire! He will also appear in director Andrew Rosen’s upcoming Hollywood Sex Club.

“We are thrilled to have Aaron James join the Jet Set Men family,” says Jet Set head of production Chris Steele. “He’s a class act who performs like a champ. He also symbolizes the porn industry’s continued crossover appeal to a younger generation. And he’s also amazingly hot.”

Besides his burgeoning film career, James will also appear on the small screen as the subject of MTV’s True Life documentary series. His segment, titled “I Work in the Sex Industry,” is expected to air in early 2008. For more information, visit www.jetsetmen.com.

Movie Review: Afternoon Delights


BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Director:
Ben Leon.
Cast: RC Ryan, Mario Cruz, Marcos Pirelli, Marc LaSalle, Brendan Austen, Luc Bonay, Fred Faurtin, Dominic Pacifico.

San Francisco is the setting for the latest release from hometown studio, Raging Stallion. A group of their standard-issue manly men get together for a series of daytime trysts, which begin with all-American jock RC Ryan gazing provocatively at Mario Cruz from across a rooftop. Soon, they are making time on a plush couch. Cruz sucks Ryan, Ryan sucks Cruz, Ryan tops Cruz, which leads to Cruz receiving a mouthful of cum. Sound hot? It should be, but the lack of chemistry disappoints as Ryan and Cruz seem almost robotic in their mechanical moves. Ryan fares better on his own, in a solo shower/jack scene. Watching this big beautiful man milk his sweet stiffie is much more entertaining and exciting. Maybe he just plays better alone? Marcos Pirelli and Marc LaSalle do a better job of creating some duo heat in their pairing. With the SF skyline behind them, they kiss passionately before Pirelli rams deep (some great videography by director Ben Leon here). Next, Brendan Austen spies Luc Bonay from his window and decides to take a break from painting his apartment to show off his juicy pecs and to top Bonay with his uncut piece. In the final scene, Fred Faurtin is lifting weights at the gym when he spots Dominic Pacifico. Before you know it, they’re sharing a midday cardio session. Again, there are superior shots of the anal action and excellent picture quality, as there is throughout. Afternoon Delights offers (mostly) hot sex and top-notch production values. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon. (Raging Stallion Studios)

News: Porn Star Stonie Makes a Switch



It’s not often that you’ll see tits on VincentLambert.com…well, female ones anyway. But just for today, we’ll make an exception so we can report that porn star Stonie has undergone partial gender-reassignment surgery. According to talent manager David Forest, Stonie, who has worked in gay porn since 1998 and appeared in more than 60 films, including Caesar’s Hardhat Gang Bang, Cadets in Arms and Tall Tails, has been involved in the “sex-change process” over the past year. He was renowned in the industry for his amazing posterior, and he became even more famous in the mainstream world for his cameo in the film Borat (in which he played Borat’s well-hung son). Now, using the name Brittany Coxxx, Stonie plans to continue to do porn and will be Forest’s first male-to-female client. (Forest already reps female-to-male performer Buck Angel.)

“I’m excited to begin working as Brittany Coxxx in adult films,” says the porn star formerly known as Stonie. “I think it will be even hotter than before.”

Forest adds: “I think Brittany will be a huge hit in the straight XXX business, even more so than she was as Stonie in the gay world.”

Time will tell, but from the looks of the photo above, Brit-Brit will be offering fans the best of both worlds!

New Release: Gunnery Sgt. McCool




Studly Vinnie D’Angelo plays the title role in Titan Media’s new Gunnery Sgt. McCool. Director Joe Gage recruits 14 rugged military men in this tale of the horniest and most twisted sergeant on the base. Tony Masala and Andrew Justice discover this firsthand when McCool orders a full servicing. Then Tyler Saint convinces Jason Ridge to jack off for him and his video camera. Off the base, two old military buddies (Scott Tanner and Brandon Monroe) share some drinks and more when Tanner’s college-age son (Justin Burkshire) can’t resist Monroe’s cock. (Hey, did anyone notice that Brandon Monroe (below) looks exactly like former Lucas exclusive Jack MacCarthy? That’s because it’s him. And we would know—we directed him in a scene!) The seven-man orgy finale starts with cover model Dean Flynn at a lab giving a urine sample and ends at a sperm bank. This extended sequence must be seen to be believed! Starring TitanMen exclusive Dean Flynn, Vinnie D’Angelo, Andrew Justice, Scott Tanner, Tyler Saint, Kai Grant, Tyler Kane, Jean Paul Roccard, Erik Hall, Jason Reynolds, Tony Masala, Brandon Monroe, Justin Burkshire and Jason Ridge.
