News: Best of Decade Blog Event Announced

Last year, we were invited to a Blog Circle Jerk. Now we’ve been asked by a group of highly esteemed journalists to take part in an exciting new project. In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, 12 top adult industry journalists, bloggers and Web sites (including VincentLambert.com) are preparing to launch a group blog that will discuss, dish and celebrate the past decade in gay porn.

The idea for a group blog sprang up during a conversation between journalists JC Adams (of GayPornTimes) and Onan the Vulgarian (of XXFactor) when Onan mentioned that he wanted to update his 1998 list of the all-time best gay porn films. As we approach the end of the 2000s, the guys felt that it was a good time to look back at the past 10 years in gay porn and commemorate the highlights—and maybe even some of the lowlights! So they asked us and several other top names in the big biz to weigh in with our faves.

“The adult industry is undergoing a period of retrenchment right now,” Adams says, “and at times like these it’s useful to examine the past as we try to [look into] the future.” Onan adds, “This blogging project will help to provide a cultural and erotic perspective on where we were and whence we’ve come in the past 10 years, written by the people who have been paying the most attention.”

Besides Adams, Onan (and us!), the other participants are Mark Adams of VidioView; the editors of Fleshbot, TheSword and GayPornBlog; Butch Harris of ManNet; Mark Kliem of Lavender Lounge; Jason Sechrest of JasonCurious; Mickey Skee of Adult Video News; and Nick Young of NickYoungXXX. Each blogger will use his own blog, Web site or other media outlet to present his list in his own way, shape or form. There is no predetermined format or content. Blogging is set to begin on Friday, May 1.

So, what films will make our list? Feel free to send us your suggestions, readers, and stay tuned. It’s going to be interesting!
