Seen: Dean Flynn at Splash Bar in NYC


Who should we spot in our travels last weekend but porn star Dean Flynn? There, hidden in the deep, dark recesses of Splash Bar on a sweaty Saturday night was the Titan Media exclusive. Flynn’s recent movies for the studio include Chainsaw and Warehouse, and you just know he’ll be sucking and fucking in a new production soon. Cute T-shirt, Dean, but if you ask us, you’d look better without it!

Web Watch: Bros TJ and Joner Jack With a Twist


Has the whole brothers-doing-it-next-to-each-other craze jumped the shark? With a rash of new scenes from Bobby and Seth Clark and these pairs of Fratmen (and don’t forget these two, not to mention the triplets), it’s certainly starting to look that way. But the guys over at straightfraternity.com have come up with a new way to keep it fresh. Somehow, somewhere, they found a pair of smooth bros who just happen to be deaf. So before TJ and Joner get down to pumping, they use sign language to chat about who has the bigger dick and how hot they are for chicks. Well, they are attractive in an odd, trailer-park kinda way—and it is definitely different. Guess Sondheim was right: You gotta have a gimmick!

News: The Return of Jonathan Vargas…


Well, to blogging anyway. For everyone who wrote in to ask about Jonathan Vargas, we had no new information—until the onetime porn star decided to start updating his Web site again. It was about a year ago that the star of Welcome to Paradise and Auditions 18 fell off the map. Now we know for sure that he found love and moved to Australia, where is still happily living in Sydney and working full-time. In recent posts, he doesn’t mention returning to porn, but from all the cozy vacation photos of him and boyfriend Christian, we wouldn’t hold our breath. Vargas may not be in front of the triple-X cameras any longer, but he sure isn’t letting himself go! For more, visit www.jvargasxxx.blogspot.com.

News: Rocky and Dean Coxx Go All the Way


In the good old days, when Rocky and Dean Coxx were modeling for the Straight College Men Web site, they weren’t exactly known for their man-on-man play. Well, how things have changed. Now that Coxx runs his own ClubDean.com site, he decided to bring back good buddy Rocky so they could go full-on hard-core together for the first time. In fact, in a new scene, both guys top and bottom for each other (between yelps and screams). “After I started doing hard-core sex scenes, this was the one I got the most requests for,” Coxx says. “People have loved watching us together for years, so I knew to make my fan base happy, I had to do whatever it takes to convince Rocky to do this with me. The result, though, is just so much hotter than I even expected. I think every fan of ours will agree it’s been well worth the wait.” To see whether he’s right, visit ClubDean.com.

Event: Equality & Justice Day


Today’s the day that gay New Yorkers schlep to Albany to make their case to state representatives in the fight for marriage equality. Empire State Pride Agenda has launched a campaign called Equality & Justice Day to mark the occasion. The New York–based group is hoping to prove that actions taken on one day, like today, can change history. In a series of photos on the Pride Agenda site, revolutionaries throughout the ages are shown making a difference in the world. The half-naked guys pictured here are supposed to be Indians from the Boston Tea Party—or something like that. Who knows? It’s still an important day to let lawmakers know that equality is important to you and yours. Remember, kids, gay rights are human rights. For more information, visit onedayequals.com.

Short Takes: AMG Revamps Sites…and More


Athletic Model Guild (AMG) has announced the relaunch of the company’s two membership sites, AthleticModelGuild.com and AMGBrasil.com. The new sites will be updated multiple times weekly and include thousands of images, hundreds of video scenes (complete with HD and full-screen capabilities) and historical memorabilia from the studio’s past, including Bob Mizer’s magazine, Physique Pictorial. “The brand-new interface will allow us to showcase our 65 years of historical images and movies with the most up-to-date technology possible,” says AMG president Dennis Bell. “In addition to our hard-core Brazilian line, AMG Classics has a vintage library of 3,000 films, 2,500 videos and about a million gallery images.” That’s a lot of porn! The studio also provides access to a video-on-demand page; a blog; the AMG Web store; a podcast (downloadable in the iTunes store); and an AMG Twitter. “We realize that technology is constantly in flux, and we are ready to adapt to the ever-changing atmosphere of the Web,” Bell adds. “No one can say AMG is a relic of the past. AMG is a studio of the future.”…Porn star Kurt Wild has taken to his blog to let fans know that he has amicably parted ways with AngelSlutGarden.com and ASG Entertainment, which had recently signed him to star in and direct porn. “For me to continue as a team with ASG, in my opinion, would not help me with fulfilling my dreams as a model and director,” Wild says, “because I have always done better as a soloist. I am very much a people person, but when it comes to goals and working, I tend to be a real perfectionist.” The married father of three (anyone know whether his wife has popped out the fourth yet?) who made a splash on The Tyra Banks Show goes on to say that he will remain friends with company owners Angel Skye and Brad Star but will focus on building his own ClubKurtWild site. Meanwhile, the AngelSlutGarden site is down amid rumors that Skye has quit the business and that he and Star are no longer a couple. We smell some gay porn drama!…Is porn star Chad Manning (below) in or out? No, not of the closet—the porn biz! After announcing on his blog that he was retiring from the wonderful world of porn, the former Titan Media exclusive changed his mind and decided to stay—all on the same day. In an updated statement, Manning says, “I had some personal issues that led me to make a rash decision and things got out of hand.” It seems that working with director Steve Cruz on his new Green Door flick for Mustang had something to do with his choice. “I’m shooting for Steve Cruz right now and he has helped me realize that all porn isn’t bad! I’ve had an amazing time and I wouldn’t give it up for anything.” Okay, now we know about his career, but what about Manning’s supposed breakup with fellow screen stud Damian Rios?

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!

Event: The Line of Fashion Exhibition



We indulged our artistic side again last week with a visit to the Society of Illustrators on the Upper East Side. That’s the current home of a fabulous exhibition we had seen in an earlier incarnation at the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation. The Line of Fashion celebrates the wonderful world of illustration by showcasing more than 100 years of amazing work.

Designer Yves Saint Laurent once bemoaned the loss of the medium, saying, “It is a pity but today there are no more fashion illustrators. For however much I admire photographers, I have to admit their work is done to the detriment of the design. It is often the background that takes pride of the place.” It was in the early 1960s that photography started taking the place of illustration in the country’s top fashion magazines. Now this show, curated by Robert W. Richards (who was also part of The Painted Boy exhibition we wrote about here), pays tribute to the numerous artists, including Kenneth Paul Block, René Bouché, Antonio, Eric, Joe Eula and many others, who made fashion illustration so relevant. The work of two of our favorites are shown here: Nick Backes (above) and Steven Broadway (below). This ain’t gay porn, guys, but these drawings are beautiful and hawt! The show runs through May 2. For more information, visit www.societyillustrators.org.

Event: Cocktails Returns to Micky’s in Weho


It seems like only yesterday that Micky’s burned to the ground, dashing a million gay porn dreams. Now, almost two years later, like a phoenix rising from its ashes (or Cher in Vegas), the popular West Hollywood club is back and better than ever. And along with the all-new-and-improved Micky’s, the long-running Cocktails With the Stars event will be returning too. Starting tonight, Thursday, April 23, at 6 pm, co-hosts Scotty B and Angel Benton will be welcoming the hottest gay porn stars and introduce them to fans and promote their latest films. Cockyboys.com exclusive Bobby Clark (also the star of Buckshot’s Boy Country) is slated to be their first guest. (Hmmm, wonder whether his bro Seth will show!) Studly Robert Van Damme follows next week.

“I’m ecstatic that Micky’s and Cocktails are returning,” Scotty B says. “The wait has seemed like forever! I can’t wait to start inviting the Internet studios and some of the new up-and-coming porn stars.”

The original show, which was famously hosted by both Will Clark and Jason Sechrest in years past, is being updated and will even have a Webcast tie-in now. Cocktails has teamed with NickYoungXXX.com to air the event online weekly for the first time. “Broadcasting the show has been a work in progress even while the bar was still in rubble,” Scotty B says, “we just needed a reliable company to help, and with me already interviewing/working for Nick Young, the choice was obvious.” For more information, visit mickys.com.

News: Raging Stallion Signs David Taylor


Raging Stallion Studios has signed David Taylor to a long-term exclusive modeling contract to appear in films and print media. Taylor, who has previously done soft-core work on the straight side and appeared in online scenes for both Randy Blue and Jake Cruise, has also been selected to be the spokesperson for the RealTouch sex toy, which will be launched by AEBN soon. He debuts for Raging Stallion in the movie Menace.

“David Taylor is every man’s dream!” says RSS president Chris Ward. “He is a delightful guy, and he performs very well on camera. David is the kind of guy who comes along very rarely in gay erotica—smokin’ hot with a look to die for! We have huge plans for him over the coming months.”

Taylor was born in Southern California and raised in the Midwest. He played Division 1 athletics in college before spending time in the Marine Corps. The all-American jock has modeled for Abercrombie & Fitch and Exercise Magazine and acted on the soaps Passions and General Hospital before landing gigs on prime-time shows such as CSI: Miami, Las Vegas and Alias.

Brett Drysdale, who heads up marketing for RealTouch, met Taylor at the recent GAYVN Awards in San Francisco and knew he had found the new face for his product. “We are extremely excited to have David as our exclusive spokesman,” Drysdale says. “Beyond his obvious good looks and sex appeal, David is charming and has a definite magnetism that will be a great asset.”

Seen: Mason Wyler at the Phoenix Forum


PHOTO COURTESY JACK SHAMAMA/GAYPORNBLOG.COM

God only knows what controversial porn star Mason Wyler is up to these days. After a strange bit of radio silence (which we probably wouldn’t have noticed if the guys over at Unzipped.net weren’t obsessed with him and so kindly pointed it out!), the usually overexposed stud was spotted at the Phoenix Forum in Tempe, Arizona, a couple of weeks back. The annual event, which was celebrating its 10th anniversary, played host to the usual adult-industry bigwigs, and according to our spies, one of the highlights of the three days of parties, seminars and lectures was DominicFord.com’s 3-D gay porn demo. That’s where Wyler, Jake Cruise and others could be found trying out this new cutting-edge technology. “The response was overwhelming and very exciting for us,” founder Dominic Ford says. “Seeing the movers and shakers in the industry getting all jazzed about what we are doing meant the world to me.” Is this the future of gay porn? Well, we haven’t tried it ourselves yet, but from what we hear, it’s the next best thing to being there. Now they just need to get Mason to do a scene!

News: David Forest Announces New Column


Everybody wants to write about gay porn gossip these days! Veteran talent manager (now retired) David Forest is throwing his hat in the crowded ring with the Sunday Serenade, a new weekly Web column. “I couldn’t sit back any longer,” says Forest, who dropped out after a stint in rehab last year. Now at age 60, he runs the ForestMeetings service but finds himself with enough free time to share his personal news and views on the porn biz. “I’ll draw on my 40-plus years of relationships and experience in both mainstream and adult entertainment show business to offer up a fun, critical (sometimes cynical) weekly column,” Forest says. Hmmm, maybe that means he’ll share some of those great Stevie Nicks war stories from the ’70s. To read Forest’s musings, visit www.forestmeetings.com.

News: Bobby Clark and Bro Seth Pull Together


Okay, it’s officially a trend! They may not be twins or triplets, but Bobby Clark and sibling Seth Clark are proving once again that brothers are doing it for themselves. In a new scene for Cockyboys.com, the two straighters jerk off while watching (straight?) porn. “I figured it was time I catch the Clark brothers together on film,” Cockyboys producer Kyle Majors says. “I took Seth Clark out for drinks, and he let it slip that he and his brother used to kick back on the couch, watch straight porn and share war stories while they squeeze one out together. That’s when I had the idea.”

The clips starts off with the guys joking around while naked and watching porn on TV. They trade stories about the girls they’ve been with, and soon it’s impossible for them to ignore their boners. They start jacking off with complete concentration, grunting and breathing harder as the tension builds between them. It doesn’t take long before the bros are pumping poles and moaning to let each other know they were getting closer. It’s like their bodies are in tune as they work toward their inevitable pop shots. Hey, as Majors points out, the family that sprays together, stays together! For more information, visit www.cockyboys.com.

Short Takes: Robbie Angel Is Back…and More


Another day, another porn star comeback. Last week, it was Jason Adonis, now former Channel 1 Releasing exclusive Robbie Angel is returning to the jizz biz and has signed with Jason Sechrest’s new DV8 Casting management firm for all print, video, online and live appearance bookings. Now 26, Angel appeared in just three movies (Starting Young, Little Big League and In the Can) when he was 19 before taking a powder. Guess he needs to buy a new couch!…When Phil ST John was inducted into the GAYVN Hall of Fame last month, he was seen in San Francisco with a camera crew in tow. Now we know that the famed director was filming what he is calling a “mock-u-doc-u-cock-u-mentary.” This will be a feature-length film that pokes fun at his oversize persona and celebrates his long porn career, including how he basically invented the double-penetration scene with Below the Belt in the ’80s and created the skateboard punk genre in the late ’90s. And Pacific Sun Entertainment is saying that ST John’s next project for the company will “stretch the physical limits” of his models and that his chosen star will be taking sex “beyond the limits of nature.” Hmmm, hot monkey love!?…Jack Wrangler just left the building, now another porn legend has passed away: Behind the Green Door star Marilyn Chambers was found dead in her home last week. The cause of death was not known. Chambers’ daughter, McKenna Taylor, has announced that a public memorial service will be held in Los Angeles this Wednesday, April 22, which would have been the actress’s 57th birthday.…Old Reliable photographer David Hurles was hospitalized last October after suffering a massive stroke. Now, a group of his friends and fans have launched the Old Reliable Fund to bring his iconic photographs of California street trade (prime example below—love the plaid!) to a new audience online. Hurles, 64, was a porn pioneer in the 1970s, and artist Rex in the book Speeding called his models “the detritus of the American dream: dropouts, drug addicts, ex-cons and schemers. Hurles documented their courage and bravado.” Recently, some of his classic pictures were resurrected in The Big Penis Book. “It’s really important that we get his work back out there,” says Christopher Trout, a partner in the Old Reliable Fund. “Not only is it some of the sexiest, most confrontational work I’ve ever seen, but it also carries some significant historical weight.” The Fund will operate a blog and Web store at www.OldReliableFund.blogspot.com.

Movie Review: Pedro


BY VINCENT LAMBERT

MTV took a break from its usual spate of crap programming on April 1 to air a surprisingly sensitive and touching movie about the life and death of Real World star Pedro Zamora. With an introduction by President Bill Clinton, who contended that Zamora gave a face to the AIDS epidemic in the early ’90s, the film follows him from his Cuban roots to making a life in Miami, where he eventually decided to try out for the fledging MTV reality show and become its first openly gay and HIV-positive roommate. Once cast, Zamora came up against adversity in the form of Puck, the gnarly bike messenger (played by a spot-on Matt Barr), but also found love with activist Sean Sasser (DaJuan Johnson). Milk Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black wrote the moving screenplay, and Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (who directed some of gay porn’s finest films before moving to the mainstream with The Fluffer and Quinceañera) produced.

First-time director Nick Oceano occasionally succumbs to TV-movie-of-the-week melodrama, but a mostly fine cast, especially Alex Loynaz as Pedro (whose only fault might be that he is too attractive, even in the deathbed sequences!) and Justina Machado (you’ll recognize her as Rico’s wife on Six Feet Under) as his devoted sister, Mily, elevates the material. There is a tenderness in the scenes they share that makes the inevitable finale all the more heart-wrenching. Pedro offers a sobering look at a young person (Zamora was diagnosed with HIV at age 17 and died in 1994 at 22) who stood up for himself in a long-ago time and place, but its safer-sex message is still frighteningly pertinent today.

Short Takes: Rod Barry Reveals Former Roomie


Has anyone watched the “interrogation” of Rod Barry by director Michael Lucas from Lucas Entertainment’s Return to Fire Island? The clip is currently up on Lucas’s blog, and in it, one of our favorite porn stars ever talks about how at one time he and fellow screen stud Nick Capra were roommates. Barry, who is currently taking a break from porn while staying clean and sober at a facility outside New York, calls Capra “the craziest motherfucker I ever lived with in my life.” He says that when he and Capra shared a place, Capra cut up Barry’s clothes, dressed in drag as a black woman named Twyla and broke into Barry’s locked room with a knife to use his computer. Good times! To watch the entire interview, visit www.lucasblog.com.

Guy Candy: Two Sets of Twin Fratmen



First it was gay porn triplets, then it was gay porn twin bandits. Now the guys over at Fratmen.tv have found a way to double your pleasure times two. They’re serving up not one but two sets of twins posing and showing off for one another. Dustin and Darren meet Jesse and Joshua then stroke and hit the showers together. Well, isn’t that convenient?

Seen: Blu Kennedy at Jet Set Men Offices


We are loving Twitter (you can follow us at VinceLambertNYC)! How else would we know that porn star Blu Kennedy was at the Jet Set Men offices in North Hollywood today signing autographs of his excellent movie, Code Violators (which just happens to be directed by our bud Andrew Rosen, whose move to San Francisco we just wrote about)? Who can forget Blu’s amazing kitchen fuck with former exclusive Nickolay Petrov? But he has made several movies since this one, including shooting a 3-D scene with hairy Arpad Miklos for DominicFord.com, and we just reviewed a brand-new scene Blu did and the redheaded stud is looking (and performing) better than ever. Go, Blu! For more information, visit www.jetsetmen.com.

News: Cockyboys Signs Skyler Caine


Cockyboys.com has announced the signing of Skyler Caine as an exclusive performer. Caine, 21, says that he approached Cockyboys because he was “just looking for sex.” We’re guessing he found it! “I thought the guys were so hot,” he adds, “I just wanted to meet them.” Cockyboys founder Kyle Majors was happy to help Caine with his quest for cock. “I knew right away that Skyler was Cockyboys material,” Majors says. “He was really innocent but extremely sexual and not hesitant about doing anything on camera. Let’s say we didn’t have to nurture his exhibitionist side.” Caine’s scenes begin rolling out this week at the online studio, and while we’re sure he is being compensated, Caine did let slip, “I shouldn’t say this, but I would’ve done this for free. This is the best sex I’ve ever had!” Probably not the smartest thing to say in tough economic times, but hey, at least he’s pretty. For more information, visit Cockyboys.com.

News: Porn Star Steve Pierce Passes Away


Popular porn model Steve Pierce is dead. Gayporntimes.com was the first to report that the 44-year-old star of films such as The Chosen, Stick It In!, Flesh & Blood and Glory Holes of LA, was found in Palm Springs on Sunday. The cause of death was not immediately known. Industry veteran Gino Colbert, who directed Pierce in the 1997 classic movie Johnny Hormone, told VincentLambert.com, “Steve was a professional and a real trooper, the type any director would welcome on a set, because he took the business seriously and cared about giving his best.” Pierce worked for numerous studios, including Raging Stallion, Falcon and Titan Media. He appeared in several leather, bondage and fetish films and in total made about 40 movies from 1995 to 2004. Recently he was focusing on his writing career, penning his first novel, a sci-fi thriller titled World Without Winter. Pierce is survived by his partner of 20 years, Thomas Miller. For more on the book and his porn work, visit www.StevePierce.com.

Short Takes: Jason Adonis Returns…and More


It turns out that all the talk is true: Porn superstar Jason Adonis (above) has filmed a comeback scene for COLT Studio Group. Director John Rutherford announced on his blog last week that Adonis has shot a solo for the Minute Man Series line that will be available online next month at COLTstudiogroup.com and then on DVD this summer. Adonis has previously appeared in movies such as Wet Palms, Through the Woods and Wash West’s classic The Hole and famously bottomed for Erik Rhodes in The Farmer’s Son. He has been absent from gay porn for a couple of years, but fans will be happy to know that he is still looking good!…Hot on the heels of the GAYVN Awards last month and before the Grabbys unspool in May, our blog buddy Marc Wynter has announced his very own COP Blog Awards recognizing the best in gay adult entertainment. Fans can vote in 14 categories created by Marc, including fun ones like Most Convincing Bottom, Most Creative Top, Best Hairy Performer (coughRJ Danvers!) and Best Photogenic Cock and Balls. There will also be a COP Blog Hall of Fame, which honors those performers who have made an outstanding contribution to the industry and still have broad fan appeal. Marc will make a donation in the winners’ names to the Trevor Project. “I decided instead of doling out trophies that I would do something different,” he says, “which could allow me to give back to the community and at the same time support a worthy LGBT service that has helped save so many of our youth’s lives in times of crisis.” Voting runs from now until April 30 at www.chroniclesofporniablog.com.…We’re hearing from our friend Andrew Rosen (below) that after many years he is ditching Los Angeles for a new gig. The award-winning editor and director of films such as The F Word and Code Violators—who has also appeared on-screen as his alter ego, porn star Andrew Addams, in numerous movies, including Trepass and Nasty Nasty—is moving to San Francisco to work for Raging Stallion. He will serve as an exclusive editor and director for the studio. “I’m looking forward to all the new experiences in San Francisco and to working with such a prestigious company,” Andrew told us this weekend. With RSS upping its production schedule, it sounds like a perfect match!

Press: Details Profiles Gay Porn Bandit Twins


The April issue of Details (with Alex Rodriguez on the cover and that bizarre ode-to-narcissism photo shoot in which he is making out with himself on the inside) features a revealing piece about porn star brothers Keyon and Taleon Goffney. In a story titled “The Curious Case of the Gay-Porn-Star Identical Twins,” writer Richard Rys takes an in-depth look at the siblings who were arrested last year. “Gorgeous twins partnering up for Mission: Impossible–style heists may sound like the premise of a Hollywood action thriller,” Rys writes, “but the Goffney brothers’ tale is more the stuff of David Lynch.” He goes on to recount how Keyon was about to get his big break as a legit model when he was arrested, along with his brother Taleon, for an alleged rooftop burglary in Philadelphia.

Originally from the mean streets of Camden, New Jersey, the brothers had previously worked in the porn industry before the supposed string of break-ins in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. Keyon got his start doing hard-core scenes for Flava Works in Chicago and eventually brought his brother (who identifies as straight) into the fold to work for a specialty Web site that caters to “Pure Black Male Beauty.” Together, they shot five scenes, including a threeway with Marc Williams in Las Vegas, which Rys reports was “just short of incest.” Keeping it all in the family, when Keyon was arrested for the Philly job, he also implicated the twins’ mother, Towana, saying she was in on the scheme (police reports indicate that she was seen leaving the crime scene).

The piece ends with Taleon (who declined to be interviewed by Details) in prison, having already been sentenced for up to eight years. Keyon is due to be tried this spring on burglary and other charges related to the break-in. Rys does a great job of weaving the brothers’ twisted tale, adding layers to a story that gets more and more complicated. He even envisions a future for Keyon, who admits to having cosmetic dental work and pec implants, in Los Angeles as a fluffy reality-TV star. But in the end, it is the brothers’ unique bond that makes this story so compelling: “The queer brother introduces the straight brother to gay pornography; the crooked twin shows his law-abiding brother a life of crime; yin follows yang.”

Hey, wasn’t that the premise of Brothers Should Do It?

Details magazine is on newsstands now.

Movie Review: Men Hard at Work, Volume 2


BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Director:
Jim Steel.
Cast: Rod Daily, Jason Talon, Dempsey Stearns, Jude Collin, Cort Donovan, Nickolas Lockwood, Kevin Gotti, Wolf Hudson, Antonio Madiera, JT Ross, Lucas Knowles.

The cast of Men Hard at Work certainly know how to make the best of another ho-hum day at the office. In five sexy scenes, a bunch of studs, handsomely attired in shirts and ties, get nasty on their desks and in the lunchroom. Klutzy Dempsey Stearns gets the fun started by spilling coffee on hot boss Jude Collin—must be all that shaggy hair in his eyes! Collin takes it well, especially when Stearns starts dabbing at his crotch. This leads to some intense deep-throating by Stearns and some even deeper topping by Collin, who wears a grin throughout. Nice work if you can get it! Cuties Rod Daily and Jason Talon meet at lunchtime and bemoan their lack of time off, so they decide to use their break by going at it right there on the table. Talon munches on Daily’s smooth butt before topping it. Cort Donovan and Nickolas Lockwood also find fun things to do in their cubicles besides filing. After some solid 69 action at their desks, Donovan fingers and fucks Lockwood, who moans, grits his teeth and maintains a dreamy faraway look in his eyes as he takes it all in. Donovan’s dramatic orgasm is a highlight here.

Kevin Gotti and Wolf Hudson do a run-of-the-mill mailboy scenario, but the final scene, in which Antonio Madiera and JT Ross cruise deliveryman Lucas Knowles, is the real standout. It starts with some innocent flirting, which leads to Madiera sucking both guys and taking their cocks in his sweet mouth. This double dicking incites such a strong reaction from Madiera—moaning, whimpering, cursing, crying, spitting, you name it—that by the time the fucking begins, viewers will be as primed as Antonio. And he doesn’t disappoint as a bottom either, screaming so loud that at one point Knowles sticks his cock in Madiera’s mouth just to shut him up! Production values are average, but this threeway will make you want to do some overtime with your DVD player. (Suite 703)

Event: The Painted Boy Gay Erotic Art Fair



PHOTOS BY VINCENT LAMBERT

After a long and exhausting week reporting on GAYVN drama (and we weren’t even there!), we decided to soothe our soul by looking at some artwork…of porn stars. The Painted Boy Gay Erotic Art Fair unspooled at the LGBT Center in the Village last weekend and featured more than 70 talented artists and appearances by Tiger Tyson and Manuel Torres. We sipped the free wine (but resisted the Blimpie sub) and browsed the aisles, stopping to chat up our bud Chuck from Chuckpixxx.com, who was showing off his Big Penis book, and photographer WilsonModels.com to compare notes on Black Party fatalities (none this year, but we did hear that überhottie Mr. HX Doug Repetti killed when he paid homage to our girl Brit Brit by dancing around with a snake). Among the many works, we spotted an evocative painting of classic ’70s screen stud Al Parker by artist George Towne and a dreamy drawing of Chad Douglas (oh, that mustache!) by Robert W. Richards. Also represented were newer models such as Ryan Raz (rumored to be a RSS exclusive) and a certain Russian director who was at the center of much awards angst. And no, Michael Lucas wasn’t in attendance. He hightailed it out of town posthaste to his mother country following the awards show debacle. Maybe his soul needed soothing too.

News: Screen Legend Jack Wrangler Dead


A porn legend is dead. Screen stud Jack Wrangler died today due to complications from lung disease. He was 62. Wrangler, who was recently the subject of the documentary Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon, which won a GAYVN Award last week for Best Alternative Release, appeared in more than 85 adult movies, including Kansas City Trucking Company, A Night at the Adonis and Heavy Equipment, both on the gay and straight side. He went on to have a successful career as an actor, writer, director and producer in the legit theater world, conceiving and co-producing the 1997 Broadway show Dream: The Johnny Mercer Musical. Wrangler is survived by his wife of 14 years, singer Margaret Whiting.

Sneak Peek: Jesse Santana in Tackle


Porn star Jesse Santana is returning to the Jet Set Men fold. The twink star, who flew the Jet Set coop last year to work exclusively online for Cockyboys.com, has been announced as one of the stars of director Chris Steele’s new film, Tackle. The football-themed movie, which centers around three college quarterbacks who are vying to start in the next game, also stars Benjamin Bradley, along with Jet Set exclusives Adam Campbell, David Dakota and Marcus Steele, Josh Griffin, Luke Cassidy, Conner O’Riley (making his first made-for-DVD appearance) and Blu Kennedy. “Benjamin Bradley is amazing from beginning to end,” Steele says, “starting off the movie by flip-fucking with Jesse Santana and ending it by topping Adam Campbell, who bottoms for the first time on DVD.” Tackle is expected to be released in September.

Short Takes: Viscontis Go Fleshjack…and More


As we hinted last week, the Visconti triplets (above) will be partnering with Fleshlight for a promotional campaign to launch a series of new Fleshjack products, including both a mouth and butt Fleshjack and a Fleshjack dildo. The novelty company made the announcement last weekend before the GAYVN Awards in San Francisco, where the three brothers were nominated for two awards. “We are thrilled to affiliate ourselves with the one-of-a-kind Visconti triplets,” Fleshlight CEO Steve Shubin says. “This gives us the ability to offer our customers a fantasy experience like they have never imagined.” Jason, Jimmy and Joey, 20, are Elite Male exclusives and will now be dubbed as the first official Fleshjack Boys. The new line, which was created from exact molds of the siblings, will be available in early summer. In the meantime, we’re hearing that twinkster Tory Mason just bottomed for all three—for a movie, of course!…To the Last Man and one of its co-directors Ben Leon won big at the GAYVNs last week, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be shipped off to Argentina! Raging Stallion Studios has announced that Leon will head a new division that will produce gay porn in Buenos Aires. He and RSS photographer Kent Taylor traveled there in February to shoot the first in a series of movies. RSS president Chris Ward says that the goal is to film between four and six features each year at the Buenos Aires studio as part of a major increase in the RSS release schedule for this year and next. The first is titled Erección and stars Pedro Andreas, Daniel Marvin and Max Schutler. “I look forward to expanding my reach as a director and bringing the heat and sexuality of South America to the rest of the world,” Leon says. “Not to mention brushing up on my Spanish.”…There’s only one more day until the May issue of Unzipped featuring cute intern Beau Breedlove on the cover is unleashed on the world. And for those who can’t wait, Unzipped Media has joined with Undercovermags.com to offer the issue digitally. “The subject already has created tremendous buzz online,” says David Kalmansohn, editorial director of Unzipped Media, “and now readers can download the digital edition and draw their own conclusions about Mr. Breedlove’s interview and pictorial.” Lucky for us an advance copy arrived in our mailbox. We are happy to say that writer Sean Carnage does an excellent job bringing context and depth to a challenging subject, and the pictures are supersexy in an innocent sort of way, but we are sad, sad, sad to report that Beau does not go full monty. Price of admission is good for some nutsack and one butt shot only. Disappointed face here.

News: We’re Turning Two!


Why are they called the terrible twos? Yes, it’s been two years of gay porn news, gossip and information from VincentLambert.com. And don’t forget the movies reviews, new releases and porn star interviews! It’s hard to believe that we’ve written almost a thousand posts and are poised to welcome our millionth unique visitor (!). Time flies in gay porn land, and the past year has been one of transition and change for the industry. We did our best to cover it and bring you the stories that we thought were the most interesting and essential. Although we never know what will strike your fancy. When former porn star Jordan Young got a major promotion in the nonporn world, our decade-old interview with him got picked up by Defamer.com and other major outlets and became one of our most-read posts of the year. (Btw, we took that pic too!)

We also learned that we’re huge in Japan—or at least Billy Herrington is, thanks to a new action figure (below), so we got tons of traffic from Asia due to our coverage of that veteran bodybuilding stud. We branched out into music reviews (Mitch Branson and Colton Ford), reality TV (Big Brother, The Bachelorette, The Real World, True Life), books (The Great Cock Hunt) and documentaries (Wrangler). We covered parties about penis, erotic expos and alleged rapes (not on the same night). We ran into porn stars at signings and even rode on a boat with some. We interviewed a famous porn couple and visited the set of Lucas Entertainment’s Cock Stalker. And a bunch of dead porn stars inspired our first contest. Vince’s writing continued to appear in GAYVN, Unzipped, Freshmen and elsewhere. We even started tweeting the latest news updates on Twitter (follow us @ VinceLambertNYC)! As always, we’d love to get more comments (Ass Freak, you rock!) and feedback. Thanks to all the faithful readers who visit on a daily basis and tell us what you think. Personally, we still think Rusty Joiner (above) Should Do Porn. And we’re gonna keep writing until he does!

Seen: Hall of Famer Chris Steele at GAYVNS


Director Gino Colbert inducted a new batch of Hall of Famers at the GAYVN Awards in San Francisco last weekend. Among them was Chris Steele, who started in the industry a decade ago as a performer (Uncle Jack, anyone?) and is now the head honcho at Jet Set Men. “It’s a blast to be singled out,” Steele said in an exclusive interview with VincentLambert.com, “and very cool to go to an award show knowing you’re getting a statue. The Hall of Fame Award is the only one with your name on it. It’s really fucking cool to have one and to be on a list with so many of my friends and colleagues.” Steele (pictured above with Jet Set exclusive Adam Campbell) won over the audience with his acceptance speech in which he reminisced about taking over for Chi Chi LaRue to direct his first movie for Falcon Studios and how his mom, beaming in the audience, wrote the script. Now those are our kind of family values! For more information, visit www.jetsetmen.com.

News: 3-D Gay Porn Comes to Your Computer


Last week it was CGI gay porn, now 3-D gay porn is rocking the jizz biz. DominicFord.com is offering several hot solo and duo scenes featuring some of gay porn’s top models, including Arpad Miklos and Blu Kennedy (below). (Ford says that this is the first time Arpad and Blu worked together and they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. “I actually had to say, ‘Save it for the camera!’” Ford reveals.) Real-life boyfriends Manuel Torres and Vin Costes have also filmed a scene in 3-D for the site. And Vinnie D’Angelo (showing off a sexy new tattoo) and Antton Harri have gone the 3-D route for a scene that debuts today. When you order, you will receive a pair of special 3-D glasses—and let the fun begin. And also the headaches as we recall from our experience with that revival of Heavy Equipment! But still, gotta give these guys credit for innovation. For more information, visit DominicFord.com.
