Short Takes: GAYVN Adds Categories…and More


Speaking of awards, the GAYVNs, which are set for Saturday, March 28, in San Francisco, have announced several new categories for this year’s show. Six are Web-related (Best Amateur Website, Best Twink Website, Best Bear Website, Best Web Performer of the Year and Best New Web Performer of the Year) and three are more on the “fun” side (Best Top, Best Bottom and Best Cum-shot). This brings the total number of categories to about 50. And no, despite rumors to the contrary, a bareback category was not added—at least this year.…DirtyBoyVideo.com has launched a free audio podcast giving a glimpse into the zany world of low-rent gay porn. “The public has always been fascinated with what goes on behind the scenes in porn,” says owner Andy Fair, “but it’s not all sex parties and office naps.” The weekly podcast, which is available via iTunes and at DirtyBoyVideo.com/podcast, focuses on the day-to-day struggles of “TaskMaster” Andy and his staff as they recruit models, manage photographers and generally scramble to keep their little corner of the porn world afloat.…Bel Ami superstar Lukas Ridgeston is back in a big way. Not only did he perform in Florida (along with veteran star Johan Paulik) over the holidays, but now comes word that the still-gorgeous stud is stepping behind the cameras to direct a new movie. Produced by George Duroy, Love Affairs is Ridgeston’s upcoming directorial effort, and it stars Josh Elliot, Luke Hamill, Davy Paxton, Jean-Claude Duvall, Sascha Chaykin, Jacques Briere, Todd Rosset, Mark Zebro, Kurt Diesel and Alex Orioli.
