Short Takes: Titan Media Gets Rough…and More

Like it rough? If so, Titan Media has launched a new hard-core fetish line called Rough that will be right up your alley. So far two movies have been shot and released that showcase documentary-style footage with real-life fetish players. The first, Shock Treatment, features Titan exclusive and co-director Tony Buff and takes viewers behind the scenes of the BDSM world (Paul Wilde co-directs). The second, Fist and Piss, promises an extreme ride soaked in spit, piss, lube and cum. Sounds soggy! For more information, visit www.titanmen.com. You can also see the box covers and more there since we had to sort through a slew of pics in order to find just one image that we could show on a family-friendly gay porn site like ours. And no, that is not beer flowing into his mask in the pic above!…Director Chi Chi LaRue and her eponymous West Hollywood emporium have been nominated for the StorErotica Independent Store of the Year Award. This is an annual award that honors the best in the erotic retail industry and is presented by StorErotica Magazine. Who knew? “I’m overjoyed at this news,” LaRue says. “My entire company and I are so honored and thankful that our store is so well received by the public and industry alike.” On our recent L.A. trip, we checked out the new shop on Santa Monica Blvd. and were impressed with the extensive back catalog of product from the Channel 1 Releasing family, not to mention the display of Chi Chi’s awards and the various books, lubes, boas and other products that porn fans can pick up there. The StorErotica Awards will be held at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on September 21.…It was just last week that we mentioned seeing veteran director Jerry Douglas at the Bigger Than Life book event. What we didn’t mention was that Jerry excitedly told us about his planned return to the theater this fall. Now we can share that Douglas will be directing a new play by David Bertolino titled The Deep Throat Sex Scandal. The off-Broadway play, which will open at the Ha! Theater on West 46th Street in September, will delve into the controversial tale of how a hairdresser from the Bronx made a porn movie that went on to gross more than $600 million and helped ignite the sexual revolution in the early 1970s. (It was just last year that the life of deceased Deep Throat star Linda Lovelace was turned into a rock opera in Los Angeles.) Sounds like a perfect match!
