Director: Edward James.
Cast: Shane, Orlando, Wes, Jacob, Bobby Clark, Andrea, Rome, TJ, Gregg, Joseph, Scott.
It’s a classic setup: Sleazy pornographer lures unsuspecting model to his studio and proceeds to trick, cajole and coerce said model into posing nude. In the case of Baitbuddies, shady director Edward James gets the models to do much more than pose naked. If you buy the reality-style premise, he drags an alleged straight stud to his tacky leather sofas and makes him think that he’s going to bang some hot babes. But when the fictional bimbos don’t show, the con man director talks them into trying sex with a decoy gay, offering extra money and guaranteeing that the scene will be seen only in a foreign market. It’s all very manipulative and gross, and the real fucking is nothing compared to the mind-fucking that straight-faced liar James gives these naive dudes. The no-name cast (with the exception of a fresh-faced Bobby Clark, who proclaims himself “a titty man”) is average and perhaps they’re all in on the joke, but in our experience, porn stars aren’t this good at acting. If sexual psychodrama turns you on, then Baitbuddies might do the trick. Otherwise, you’ll find it as exploitative, boring and depressing as we did. (Pure Play Media)

It’s been a year since Micky’s in West Hollywood reopened following…you know, that famous fire. And its popular Thursday night event, Cocktails With the Stars, is still going strong. Tonight host Scotty B. celebrates its first year back in business by welcoming porn superstar Rob Romoni and other surprise guests. From 6 to 10 pm, the duo will host local gay studios, interview adult models and hand out awards and freebies. They will also be announcing the winner of this contest.
“The show will be filled with a little old and a little new,” says Scotty B. “Cocktails will be moved downstairs for this occasion and right on the street of Santa Monica Blvd., as it was years ago. We will also be giving out awards…and we know you’re curious who is going to take home the Lindsay Lohan Award, right?!” Is that for the biggest mess in gay porn or what?!
In case you can’t be in L.A. tonight, the shenanigans will be filmed for NickYoungXXX.com. Have fun, guys!

Okay, so he might be in a shit ton of trouble with the law, but twink star Damon Audigier isn’t letting that slow his burgeoning porn career. It was just a few weeks back that we wrote about his arrest on some serious charges. Now, we’re hearing that Audigier is out on bail and that the charges have been reduced. So why not get out there and plug a new movie!?
Damon’s latest release is Rumper Room from Buckshot Productions. He appears in a scene with hung and horny Mario Costa. What starts with stroking and teasing in the game room leads to the bedroom where Damon deep-throats Mario’s monster cock. Next, he bends over and takes a hard pounding before spilling his seed. Mario returns by spewing a thick stream all over Damon’s sweaty bod. Sounds like our prison fantasy!

Another gay porn star is doing the model thang for Rufskin. Following in the oversize footsteps of Leo Giamani, Johnny Hazzard and D.O., Vince Ferelli is the latest stud to model the company’s line of Sheer undies. Ferelli has appeared in numerous movies, including 5 Easy Ways to Fuck a Straight Guy and Loading Zone, and was formerly a Hot House exclusive. More recently, he has caused a stir by appearing in scenes with transsexual models, including two in which T-girl star Natassia Dreams has her way with him. According to Natassia, that is what really gets muscleman Ferelli’s panties in a bunch. Hey, whatever works!

Remember where you were when you heard that Brad and Jen had broken up? Jen and Ben? Sonny and Cher!? Porn fans got a shock this week when it was announced (via our friends at TheSword.com) that Aden and Jordan Jaric were breaking up. The Falcon Studios exclusive couple has made numerous movies together since 2007, including Endless Crush, Malibu Heat and Best Men, in which they played only with each other. (They also jointly recorded a dance single and posed for the NOH8 campaign.) Aden made a statement to confirm the news, writing “Yes, it’s true. Please don’t message me asking about my personal life. I won’t reply. It’s none of anyone’s business.” While Jordan took to his Twitter account to say that he is “in a lot of pain” and “we’re still friends and still love each other, but love isn’t enough.” He also got custody of their dog, Buster. A compilation DVD of the duo’s scenes was recently released by Falcon, and they will appear in the studio’s upcoming INNtrigued. Will it be their last scene together? A Falcon representative told us this weekend that the company will release a statement about the future of the fun couple later this week. Gawd, if these two perfect specimens got tired of having sex with each other, what chance do the rest of us have!?…On another sad note, NYC party promoter and HX magazine co-founder Marc Berkley was found dead on Fire Island this weekend. He wasn’t directly involved in the porn industry, but he hired his fair share of go-go guys and porn stars to work his events for the more than 20 years he was on the club scene. Vince spotted him at the Hookies just a few weeks back. It’s rumored that he had a heart attack, but final reports are pending. He was 57.…Okay, enough with the bad news. Let’s end on an animated up note this week. Archie Comics announced last week that it’s adding an openly gay male character to its comic book. Kevin Keller is the new hunk in town and, starting in September, he will be rubbing elbows (and more?) with Riverdale residents Archie, Jughead, Veronica and Betty. “Having a gay character is a huge sign of progress,” Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater says. “The world is a huge melting pot and Riverdale is a reflection of what’s going on. It also reflects what is going on in American high schools. Kids are warmer and more accepting than ever.” Wish we had a wholesome blond twink like Kevin in our high school. Maybe Helix Studios can lure him to do a solo!?

Who knew porn stars were so telegenic? Or at least on foreign soil they are. A few industry studs were recently featured on TV broadcasts abroad. First, COLT Men supercouple Carlo Masi (above) and Adam Champ appeared on the Italian TV show Chiambretti Night. Now from what we hear, this is one of the most-watched shows in all of Italy. And from the looks of the crazy clip linked here, it’s sort of a parody of a bad variety show—a scarfed Masi holds forth from a throne with his lap dog as a pair of overweight twins (not the Peters!) in matching sweaters twiddle their thumbs and some blonde chick with bunny ears swoops in on a swing. Even though the show is in Italian (no subtitles), we figured out (Vince is Italian, after all) that the real-life boyfriends were talking about their relationship and showing how they cast their famous cocks for COLT’s line of dildos. This is what they show on TV in Italy!? To view the insanity, click here.
Meanwhile, on National Israeli Television, the newsmagazine Channel 1 filmed Lucas Entertainment president and CEO Michael Lucas and exclusive model Jonathan Agassi as they shot the Lucas smash Inside Israel. The show (again with no subtitles) features porn superstar Lucas (whose interview is in English) talking about growing up gay and how he hopes that his current films will attract queer tourists to the country. In one touching segment, Agassi is interviewed with his mother (below). “Watching the news report from Tel Aviv about my Israeli films was amazing,” Lucas says. “This channel is the main news network in the nation. The entire country was watching, and Jonathan Agassi’s mother stood proudly by her son, in full support of his career. I was moved by the love she showed, and it was so nice to see Jonathan being incredibly moved by the words of his mother.” To watch the in-depth report, click here.

Raging Stallion has announced that two of its big-name porn stars have re-signed for the 2010–11 production season. Both Austin Wilde (above) and Angelo Marconi (below) will continue to work exclusively for the San Francisco–based studio. “Austin and Angelo are my top performers,” RSS president Chris Ward says. “Both men represent what it means to be a Raging Stallion star—tall, dark, muscular and handsome! The fact that they have 16-pack abs and about 18 inches [of cock!?] between them doesn’t hurt! But seriously, these are delightful men, and I am really grateful that they both want to stay with Raging Stallion for another year.” Wilde shares the 2010 RSS Man of the Year title with fellow exclusive David Taylor. Both Wilde and Marconi are featured in the recently released Tales of the Arabian Nights and the upcoming Heat of the Moment.
And speaking of Austin Wilde, in other (much dumber) RSS news, the studio (obviously in need of a publicity stunt) offered newly out singer Ricky Martin $1 million last week to appear in a scene with the freshly re-signed exclusive. Well, we thought Ricky Should Do Porn years ago! But let’s see if we understand the reasoning behind their current offer: So now that superstar (and baby daddy to twin boys) Ricky Martin is openly gay, he’s gonna ditch it all and suddenly decide to do gay porn. Mmm hmmm. And what if he’s not into Austin? Deal’s off!? Yeah, right. Somehow, we expected better of you guys. Now back to real stories…

Porn star Ryan Raz is the latest model to exit the big biz. Raz, who has appeared in more than 20 films, took to his blog last week to say that his “attitude toward working in front of the camera has been changing. What was once exciting and thrilling has been changing into something that seems like a chore.” Therefore, the star of movies such as Return to Fire Island, Cock Stalker and Focus/Refocus, has decided that it is “no longer in my best interest to continue filming in the adult industry. But this does not mean that I wish to completely wash my hands of the industry. I will continue to travel and stay very actively involved in the industry.” Raz says that he will honor his commitment to present at the Grabby Awards next month in Chicago, where he is a nominee. To read his full statement, click here.…Falcon Entertainment and Next Door Entertainment have announced a strategic partnership between the two companies. The agreement joins Falcon’s production of gay adult content with the online marketing expertise and reach of Next Door and its affiliate platform, Next Door Buddy Profits. The partnership will include Falcon continuing to produce original content while Next Door will become the provider of membership sites, online marketing and affiliate program management. “This partnership agreement marks the beginning of a focused strategy to greatly enhance Falcon’s online presence.” Falcon president Steve Johnson says. “Our priority is to consistently deliver the Falcon brand experience across every digital channel.” Members of falconxxx.com and other membership sites within the Falcon brand can expect to see a series of site upgrades over the next few months. Stay tuned.…Hey, look! Pretty colors! Not only did Fleshjack launch a new campaign last week to find three gay porn stars to hawk their latest line of sex toys, but the company also put out the ads you see below to plug Jack’s Soda Boys. Those are models Cameron Marshall, Carter Nash and Andrew Blue shilling for Jack’s Sex in a Can (available in three flavors). Tasty! For more information, visit Fleshjack.com.

It looks like someone has taken Jersey Shore’s GTL mantra to heart! Porn superstar Mark Dalton is shown here posing in his first bodybuilding competition. The Getting Levi’s Johnson star won first place in both the Novice Heavyweight and Overall categories (beating more than 60 novices) and third place in Light Heavyweight at the Ronnie Coleman Classic (named after the onetime Mr. Olympia champ) on Saturday, April 10, in Mesquite, Texas. Competing under the name Jeremy Sons, Dalton received an “excellent” rating on each judge’s critique sheet.
In an exclusive interview with VincentLambert.com, Dalton says that the competition was “the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” The 30-year-old Texas native spent the past three months prepping for the contest and sums up the process as “no fun. Getting ready for a show is like nothing else. You have to totally focus on your training and diet. And to get to zero body fat, which is what you see in the pictures from that night, you have to suck everything out of your body, including the water. You’re just skin and muscle!”
But Dalton says that all the hard work paid off. “It was a great feeling,” he says. “Taking first place made it all worthwhile.” And having his three-year-old daughter in the audience made his victory that much sweeter. “She was there cheering me on. Afterward she told me that she wanted a small trophy for herself, and I told her, ‘Daddy is only winning big trophies!’”
Following the contest, Dalton took a few days off but is now back to serious training for his next event, the Europa Super Show in Dallas this August. Although he is currently fielding offers for photo shoots and porn movies, his heart is in bodybuilding for the moment. “I am 100 percent committed to getting ready for this next show,” he says. “But my previous experience in porn probably helps my performance here, just from being onstage and using my charisma to relate to the audience.”
Dalton adds that he assumes the judges know of his porn work, but it doesn’t matter. “Look, I can’t do anything about what I’ve done in the past,” he says. “All I can do is make today as good as I can. I’ve always been about being different. Who knows? Maybe my tattoos will work against me. Or they might make me stand out. My one fear is being the same as everyone else.”
So, what does Dalton think of his comeback scene in Jet Set Men’s just released Levi movie? “To be honest, I haven’t seen it yet,” he says. “I just do what I do and hope the fans like it. I am sure some won’t be happy with my latest move. But I say, bring on the haters! Hey, if nobody is hating you, then you’ve lost your touch!”

Okay, the time for hype is over. Levi has arrived! We’ve been writing about Jet Set Men’s latest parody, Getting Levi’s Johnson, for a while. Now the star-studded satire is out and ready to bring the LOLs. This erotic spin on the real-life drama surrounding studly Levi Johnston and his awful almost-mother-in-law, notorious quitter/loser Sarah Palin, features superstars Mark Dalton (in his comeback solo), Brent Corrigan (in a rare major-studio appearance), Jesse Santana (on loan from his online deal with Cockyboys), Diesel Washington (a recent Hookies winner), not to mention Jet Set exclusive Landon Mycles, Dallas Reeves, Luke Marcum, Tommy G. (as young Levi) and newcomer Casey Monroe (making his debut as modern-day Levi). Plus busty Lisa Ann reprises her role as Serra Paylin from the straight XXX satire Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?
Director Chris Steele has brought together this top-notch cast for a five-scene, fun-filled, action-packed take on the actual baby daddy’s misadventures in the media spotlight, from his early years as a hockey player in Alaska to his infamous (and unrevealing) Playgirl photo shoot. Big-mouth talk show host Joy Behar even asked Levi about this very movie when he recently guested on her cable show. You can’t buy better publicity than that! Getting Levi’s Johnson is available now via video-on-demand and on DVD. To get your copy of this instant classic, visit JetSetMen.com.

Before our girl Brit Brit showed up at the White Party in Palm Springs last weekend to check out “Release Me” singer Agnes, the news from the gay circuit event where Chi Chi LaRue made her DJ comeback was mostly about scantily clad porn stars lounging poolside (such as XXXPOSED reality star Steven Daigle and Morning Wood newcomer Landon Conrad, above) and getting painted to dance onstage with that “Blah” gal Ke$ha (like Falcon fun couple Aden and Jordan Jaric, below). Of course Twitter was abuzz with who was coming, who was going, who was drunk, who was puking—you know, exciting stuff. But did everyone agree that Real Housewives of Atlanta “singer” Kim Zolciak sucked? We thought so.

When did this happen!? We know that our guy Dean Phoenix has done a couple of online scenes for Jet Set Men’s Straight Edge site recently. But hasn’t Zack Randall been MIA, following a breakup (or not) with that popular model…um, what was his name? Anyway, turns out that Dean and Zack have hooked up for a new installment of the “Porn School” series at Jake Cruise’s Cocksure Men site. And from the looks of these pics, both studs seem as happy as a clam. Just look at ’em, giggling and kissing. It’s enough to make you gag!
Their scene is titled “Topping 101,” and for those in the audience who need to pick up a few pointers, there are few swordsmen in the big biz who do it better than porn superstar Mr. Phoenix. According to the press release, beefy Dean and twinky Zack got together to “help you answer that age-old conundrum: What should I do with this hard cock?” Some of the finer points of their duo include: how to put on a condom; how to use lube (and lots of it!); and, most important, how to find a hole and fuck it! What would gay porn fans do without this visual instruction manual? Find out at CocksureMen.com.
Ps. Didn’t anyone teach Zack Rule No. 1? Remove your glasses when getting pounded!

If you can’t get enough of Rob Romoni and his hysterical tweets on Twitter, now the veteran porn superstar has his very own Web site. “Rob Romoni: Truth and Game” has just launched, and in an exclusive interview with VincentLambert.com, comeback kid Romoni says that the new project is simply the result of supply and demand. “I have been asked by many fans to start a blog,” Rob says, “so they can always have a central location to comment and follow my career and life. I thought it was about time to begin one for them and for myself, so I can express my thoughts on the industry and my personal life.” The blog will feature entries about Romoni’s numerous films, live appearances and upcoming events. There will also be news (such as his recent decision to sign with FabScout Entertainment), photos, music, his notorious Twitter updates, a chat room and video. “Since my return to the industry, I have worked with Falcon Studios, RVD Films, Massive Studios, Suite 703 and Channel 1 Releasing,” he adds, “so there will be much to discuss and comment on when these projects are all out.” We can’t wait to hear what he’ll say next! To check out Rob’s new site, click here.…Speaking of veteran stars, Los Angeles–based gay porn star management company DV8 Casting has announced that Doug Jeffries is joining as the company’s director of live appearances. Jeffries, who has appeared in many movies as a model, is now an award-winning director whose films include Little Big League, Bringing Out Brother and Chosen. “Doug has been booking the biggest names in the business at the biggest clubs in the world for so long now,” DV8 owner Jason Sechrest says, “he’s the best that there is. It’s exciting too because the DV8 Casting boys will be promoting their work with Channel 1 Releasing at these events worldwide, so it’s a great synergy for both companies.” For a look at DV8’s roster of models, visit DV8Casting.com.…Well, it took three years, but Lucas Entertainment is in the clear following a court battle over one of its films. In February 2007, International Media Films (IMF) filed a lawsuit against Lucas alleging that its film Michael Lucas’ La Dolce Vita violated IMF’s claimed copyright of Federico Fellini’s movie and associated trademarks. IMF subsequently sought an injunction against distribution of Lucas’ award-winning version, but the court ruled against IMF, allowing Lucas to continue distribution and sales of its film. Now a judge has dismissed IMF’s entire lawsuit, concluding that the “plaintiff has failed to show that it has sufficient admissible evidence from which a reasonable fact finder could conclude that it was the copyright owner of the Fellini film.” Lucas Entertainment president and CEO Michael Lucas says, “I’m proud that my company won a case of such magnitude. We believed strongly that we hadn’t done anything wrong even before we learned, through the meticulous, extensive and expensive fieldwork of our lawyers, that IMF doesn’t even own the movie it went to court over.” For more, visit LucasEntertainment.com.

We’re ending the week with one more interview to plug Raging Stallion’s new Tales of the Arabian Nights. In recent weeks, we’ve run posts about this Arabesque sequel, which features newcomers Aybars and Derrek Diamond. Now, how can we resist showcasing their co-star Damien Crosse? Just look at him! Here, the gorgeous Stag Homme co-founder shares his thoughts on his favorite bodily fluid, his ultimate fantasy and his equally sexy hubby.
Your diet seems to be mainly cum. What is it about the flavor of cum that makes you drink so much?
I don’t know, but it is very addictive! LOL
I have never seen so much cum on any single face as your big orgy scene in Focus/Refocus. What was it like to shoot that scene with so many talented men (Francesco D’Macho, Wilfred Knight, Steve Cruz, Angelo Marconi)? That is kind of “porn royalty.”
My face was fucking nasty, wasn’t it? I love it! How can I not love all that cum on my face from such fucking beautiful men? There’s nothing hotter for me than Francesco’s fat load hitting the back of my throat, but getting three more loads in my face from these hot superstar fuckers is just beyond!
So what is it like sharing life with Francesco D’Macho?
My jaw hurts from too much smiling. Life couldn’t be better.
Who are the favorite stars you have worked with?
My favorite star I’ve worked with is of course my baby, Francesco D’Macho, the sexiest man ever without a doubt!
How was your scene with Wilfried Knight (below)?
Wilfried has got to be one of the sexiest fuckers in the industry! My scene with him was too fucking tasty! It’s a really hot scene with lots of slow, sweet and passionate fucking. I do have to admit though that I had to stop Wilfried from fucking me a few times so I wouldn’t blow my cum shot too early in the scene. That man is pure sensuality! So grateful I got to guzzle down all his cum.
What is your ultimate porn fantasy, a scene you would love to star in?
How about a 10-man bukkake scene all over my face? Yummy!
Tales of the Arabian Nights is available now. RSS is offering the six-disc, 16-scene special-edition version of the film at an introductory price of $99.99. Customers get the original Arabesque as a bonus when they purchase Tales. To order, visit RagingStallion.com.

Well, Big Brother reality star Steven Daigle certainly isn’t wasting any time. Shortly after making his gay porn film debut in Steven Daigle: XXXPOSED, the former rodeo star is back and taking a wild ride on the dirty side. Channel 1 Releasing has just announced the online release of his latest movie, Steven Daigle: Stalked. Chi Chi LaRue directs as a sweaty Steven embarks on a dark journey that starts when he’s followed in an alley and led to an L.A. sex club where he fulfills some seriously naughty desires. First, he and Adam Killian (below) trade hot fucks, then Leo Giamani joins in for a steamy threeway. Next, Daigle services the rest of the large-and-in-charge cast, including Drew Cutler, Tommy Defendi, Rod Daily, Tyler Saint and our Twitter buddy Alessio Romero (shown hitting a high note with Daigle in the bottom pic).
Steven Daigle: Stalked is the second in a proposed trilogy that Daigle will star in for C1R before moving on to a scene with Erik Rhodes for Falcon Studios. It’s available now on VOD at C1R.com, and the DVD is set for an April 20 release. L.A. readers will want to take note of the release party on April 23 at MJ’s in Silver Lake. There are sure to be numerous stalkers!

This one goes out to all the twink lovers in the audience. The good folks at 8teenboy/Helix Studios are prepping the upcoming Twink Pool Party. Creative titling, no? Pictured above from left (in case anyone can tell the difference) are Xander Dais, Tristan Sommers, Skyelr Bleu (not a typo!), Cody Cachet, Max Morgan, Gabriel Valentino and Keith Conner. Personally, we still fondly recall this release from Helix. And while we’re thinking of it, what the hell ever happened to Mason Coxx!? Now he was a yummy little twunk. Anyway, this film is set for an April 20 release, so mark your calendars, twink fans! For more information, visit helixstudios.net.

Porn star Trevor Knight has been working in the big biz for a dog’s age. In fact, let’s call him porn superstar Trevor Knight. He deserves it after appearing in tons of films, including Overtime, Big Dick Society and Dante. After a brief flirtation with retirement (due to family reasons), the big-dicked stud is back and better than ever. His latest scene is for Suite 703, the first in a new series titled I’m a Married Man, which also features Rusty Stevens, Brad Benton (back to the porn once again, Mr. Vox!?), Emilio Sands and Twitter typist Rob Romoni. Knight has previously done scenes for the My Brother’s Hot Friend and Hot Jocks, Nice Cocks series for the online studio.
But the scene that is causing a minor ruckus for Knight is one he just did for OnTheHunt.com (the porn leg of Manhunt, not that we would know anything about that site) in which he bottoms. The duo, which co-stars Jayden Grey (pictured above), was directed by Canadian porn star Jeremy Hall and is being promoted as Knight’s on-screen bottoming debut. Don’t these people know that everyone knows everything nowadays? Astute porn fans have uncovered that Knight had previously gone bottoms up in a couple of Studio 2000 productions—Camp Out, paired with our old buddy DC Chandler (Trev looks so young and cute on the cover below!), and The Seeker, with current inmate Marcus Allen, both from 2004. Knight also flip-flopped with Shane Rollins in 2006’s Justice for hothouse.com. Oh well, maybe the good men of OnTheHunt meant that it was his online bottoming debut. Whatever! As long as Trevor is having hot sex on-screen, who cares whether he’s giving or receiving!?

While other studios are downsizing, Bel Ami is going all out for its latest shoot. The company has just completed a big-budget three-week production in Cape Town, South Africa, featuring 27 Bel Ami models, including Dolph Lambert, Luke Hamill, Brandon Manilow and those controversial Peters Twins. During that time, about 100 pieces of original programming were filmed, including documentary footage, photo shoots and interviews with the guys (who also squeezed in some pics for Aussie Bum underwear). “We just wrapped on what is likely the biggest and most expensive production in gay porn history or certainly in the past couple of decades,” Bel Ami founder George Duroy says. “BelAmiOnline had a record year of growth last year, so I wanted to put even more money into production this year and give our loyal customers some extra-special groundbreaking content.” The price tag for the mega shoot? A reported $400,000! We’ll find out whether that all ends up on-screen when the scenes start going live in May. For more information, visit BelAmiOnline.com.…Another porn star is behind bars. Last week, newcomer Damon Audigier was arrested in El Reno, Oklahoma, and charged in the stabbing death of a local teenager. Audigier, who has done work for Channel 1 Releasing and Falcon’s Jocks Studios in addition to Web studios Suite 703 and Bait Buddies, faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and malicious injury to property. He is repped by Florida-based FabScout Entertainment, which said he was set to film a new scene this week. Guess he’ll be otherwise occupied.…We recently told you that Gus Mattox is mounting a one-man show and hitting the road in his camper. Now the former porn star, who starred in films such as Through the Woods, Dangerous Liaisons and Big Rig, and current talented writer-actor (now going by the name Tom Judson) has announced the latest leg of his tour. At the end of this month, he’ll begin a three-week run of his Canned Ham show at the Cavern Club Theater in Los Angeles. And we’re hearing that none other than Chi Chi LaRue, who had a hand in discovering Mattox back in 2003, will be hosting an opening-night party on April 28. Then he’ll be spending the summer in Provincetown (one of our favorite places, btw), where he’ll perform at the Art Theater. Mattox will be alternating nights with gay-porn-friendly drag star Varla Jean Merman, besides serving as her accompanist. Yes, he plays piano—and accordion, see below—too. Well, what a nice treat this will be for our annual visit to P-town. See you there, Gus! For more information, visit cannedhamcamper.blogspot.com.

Okay, it’s time to run our annual drool-worthy picture of Rusty Joiner. Trusty Rusty was here when we turned one and two. Now the Icon Men hunk is back to celebrate the third anniversary of VincentLambert.com! Yes, kids, another year has passed and we continue to blog about gay porn in its many incarnations. This year, the industry kept evolving (or devolving, depending on who you asked), and we did our best to keep up and keep y’all informed. We went on porn cruises, attended erotic art fairs and watched as they handed out awards to hookers (yes, they give awards for that!). We interviewed famous directors and photographed veteran ones. We traveled to L.A. and made it to Industry (before it went kaput) and even had Cocktails With the Stars. And of course there were the models, young and, er, classic: We ate lunch with Simon Dexter and dinner with Jeremy Feist (young); we played bingo with Robert Van Damme and hit the road with Mark Dalton (definitely classic). But it was old-timer Dean Phoenix and newcomer Robert Gonzalez who really got us going.
At the movies, we joined in the Best of the Decade group blogging event (here’s Part 1 and Part 2) with numerous other industry writers, spotted trends (twins!), called out a lame documentary and actually found something watchable on MTV! We continued the Should Do Porn posts that first put us on the map (Mr. Joiner was one of the premier subjects), held our annual calendar contest (thanks, Raging Stallion!) and even wrote about video games (we hear the kids like ’em). Although we’ve never been nominated or won an award (hint), sometime in the past year we landed on the Starrfucker.net Top 10 Blog list. Vince showed up as a “porn expert” on The Derek and Romaine Show on Sirius Radio and continued to write for Unzipped, Men, Freshmen and GAYVN, until they folded or downsized! We also did lots of Tweeting over the past 12 months (follow us @VinceLambertNYC)—or at least as much as time (and our scintillating workout schedule) allowed.
So it was a year. It might not sound like much, but we did our best to bring you all the latest gay porn news, gossip and information—or at least the stories that we found interesting and/or amusing. After all, if you can’t get a good giggle from this crazy biz, then what’s the point? Thanks to all the readers who visit on a daily basis (are we really approaching 1.5 million unique visitors!?) and to all the other sites and bloggers who offer links, support and encouragement. Oh, and the studios and porn stars too, who make much of our content possible. And props to anyone who can figure out the origins of our obscure headline today (courtesy of one of our fave ’80s bands). Keep reading, writing in and commenting, guys. The rest is yet to come!

The twincest controversy continues! BelAmiOnline and Cockyboys have announced the release of an online scene featuring the Peters Twins getting intimate with Cockyboys exclusive Bobby Clark. In the past, Milo and Elijah Peters made headlines with a certain episode that was censored in the United Kingdom, and Clark is certainly no stranger to fraternal sex (or at least he’s jacked next to his brother. Does that count?). In the new scene, the Peters are more interested in showing Clark a good time than each other. How refreshing! It was filmed in Amsterdam and is available now at BelAmiOnline.com and Cockyboys.com.
In other Bel Ami news, the studio will be partnering with EuroMedia Distribution to release two new DVDs, including the much-hyped Taboo. This Lukas Ridgeston production was an online smash and shows the Peters twins once again doing numerous “things” to each other. The film also features Bel Ami stars Brandon Manilow, Dolph Lambert, Manuel Rios and Trevor Yates. Oh, brother?!
