Short Takes: Tony Buff to Head Raging Stallion Fetish Line…and More
Raging Stallion has added a new performer to its bag of fetish tricks. Porn star and director Tony Buff (above) has joined the San Francisco–based studio to helm FetishForce.com. This is RSS’s new production line and video-on-demand distribution point for BDSM and fetish content. Buff has previously worked for Titan Media, had his penis molded and won multiple awards, including Performer of the Year at last year’s Grabbys in Chicago. “We’ve had our eyes on Buff for years,” Falcon/Raging Stallion president Chris Ward says. “The man has a wicked skill set and a mastery of BDSM that is unsurpassed by anyone performing in the industry today.” Buff will now serve as the principal director for the Internet-based line. “When I started in the industry a little over three years ago,” Tony says, “I never would have imagined I would be given such an amazing opportunity to serve my community. I look forward to working with the stable of talent at Raging Stallion to continue bringing edgy yet responsible BDSM play to the screen.” For more information, visit FetishForce.com…Speaking of Chicago, the Windy City’s Bijou Theater (1349 North Wells Street) is having a birthday. The renowned gay theater will celebrate its 40th anniversary this Saturday, January 22, with the Staying Hard event. The Bijou has operated as a 24-hour adult-entertainment venue since 1970. It has been affiliated with vintage gay supplier Bijou Video since then. “A gay porn theater and sex club in business 40 years—impossible, unheard of,” Bijou founder Steven Toushin told XBIZ magazine. “Most businesses don’t last half as long. I’m so very proud that Bijou has serviced, given sexual satisfaction to about five-and-a-half-million gay men in its 40 years.” To learn more, go to BijouWorld.com. Congrats, guys!…Jet Set Men is at it again with another cum-worthy compilation DVD. Last time, it was Hayden Stephens. Now, blue-eyed all-American stud Landon Mycles (below) is getting the retrospective treatment with So Blond It Hurts. Mycles has been filming with Jet Set since he signed an exclusive contract in 2009, and this DVD includes some of his best moments, including his memorable bottoming debut in CarJackers with…Hayden Stephens! “It was a perfect match that Jet Set Men signed Landon Mycles,” director of casting Rob Romoni says. “He is soon to become everyone’s jock fantasy.” This collector’s edition includes nine scenes and runs more than three hours. That’s a lot of cock and ass! It features Mycles and his numerous scene partners, including Adam Campbell, Dakota Rivers, Jason Adonis, Tommy G, Josh Griffin, Chad Manning, James Gates and Spencer Whitman.
