Short Takes: Kurt Wild Enters Rehab…and More
Anyone who follows porn star Kurt Wild (above) on Twitter knows that he has a tendency to, er, melt down from time to time. The married father of three (or is it four by now?) has had drunken run-ins—on Twitter, that is—with the likes of Michael Lucas and various producers and movie studios. Who can keep track!? Anyway, to no one’s surprise, the star of films such as Proven Straight, Gigolo and My Brother’s Hot Friend, who also made a notorious appearance on The Tyra Banks Show with fellow straight model Aaron James and was fired from his job at Subway, has announced via his Twitter account that he is “choosing to join an alcohol rehab facility and is joining Alcoholics Anonymous.” This follows a series of incoherent tweets in which Wild claimed that his wife had him arrested for abuse and that he was in jail. (Shades of Robert Van Damme!? One more abusive gay-for-pay porn star and we’ve got a trend on our hands!) In the case of the volatile and erratic Wild, one never knows what to expect. The Missouri–based star recently turned his formerly XXX-rated blog into a nature photography site! Wild wants to assure fans that he’s not retiring from porn at this time. Just that he is “alright and choosing a good choice for myself and everyone to see. I just want my respect back.” Sounds like a plan, dude.…On a more upbeat note, veteran porn star Clay Maverick (below) is planning a comeback. The now-34-year-old star of films such as White Trash (a personal fave!), Naked Highway and Handsome Drifters (check out this gorgeous classic cover here) has launched a new site and is promising “new photos, new videos and upcoming appearances.” Maverick, who we interviewed in 2002, also says that he just “can’t stay away” and is writing an online serialized book about his, um, “explosion into the porn industry. I’ll tell you stories that will twist your mind and make your toes curl!” Hey, the guy’s got a way with words!

Now comes word from Titan Media that you or your man can finally “wrap you ass around Dean or Tony’s big tools!” The guys join the Realistic Cock line, which already features the many inches of Marco Blaze and Francois Sagat.
