Short Takes: Levi Poulter Is the Man…and More

There’s a new man at MenatPlay.com. The British online studio has named a winner in its model search, and the lucky guy is Levi Poulter (above). (Or are we the lucky ones because we get to see him naked!?) The 34-year-old stud (aka Miami Levi) beat 10 other finalists to take the prize. Poulter modeled in Abercrombie & Fitch and Ralph Lauren fashion ads before deciding to whip out his tool for porn work. “With his modeling background, Levi will be the ultimate addition to MenatPlay and the perfect way to launch this new era for us,” says Adrian Wilkie, a spokesperson for the Web site. Buffed blond Levi is currently in London doing the first photo shoots as part of his exclusive one-year contract. MenatPlay.com is being relaunched next month with high-resolution stream and an expanded community section with member video sharing.…The first-annual FlavaMen Blatino Awards has announced its premier group of nominees. The erotic award for and by men of color, which is sponsored by FlavaMen Magazine, allows fans to pick their favorite porn star, studio, film, Web site, club and more. But we’re hearing that everyone isn’t exactly thrilled with the choices. New York–based Pitbull Productions has declined its nominations, saying that it has a history of legal issues with the show’s producer. (Pitbull was nominated in two categories: Best Studio and Best Latin DVD.) Oh well, the show will still go on. Deadline for voting is August 10, and awards will be handed out at a ceremony during Atlanta Black Pride Celebration on Labor Day weekend in Atlanta. To cast your vote, visit BlatinoAwards.com.…Two more porn stars may be on the comeback trail. Veteran stud Michael Vincenzo (below) is the latest model to throw his hat back in the ring. Vincenzo has signed with DV8 Casting in a bid to work again. The onetime Titan Media and Raging Stallion Studios exclusive currently resides in Orlando, Florida, but is planning a trip to Los Angeles and is open to offers from any takers. There are also rumblings that Brandon Lee, who recently moved back to West Hollywood (good sign!), might be making a return to on-screen sex. Lee, a former military man, is one of the rare Asian models in the biz and has starred in several movies, including [2] for the Taking, Bolt and Wicked. He hasn’t performed in gay porn in three years while pursuing a culinary career. Welcome back, guys!
