Short Takes: Jesse Santana Is Back…and More


Is it already Season 2 of Golden Gate?! Naked Sword is ramping up the heat factor for the second episode of the second season of its online series by bringing adorable Jesse Santana (above) back to our computers for a new scene with Sage Daniels. Last we heard of Jesse, he was working for Cockyboys and dating fellow porn star Guy Parker. (If anyone knows how that all ended up, leave a comment!) Well, now he’s back and showing off his banging bod in an episode titled “Unreal Estate,” which features a hot flip-flop fuck. And while we recall that Santana had at least one pierced nipple, the young stud now sports two and a Prince Albert. Sweet! The five-episode second season of Golden Gate also stars Riley Price, Tony Buff, Colby Keller, Ashley Ryder, Marcus Mojo (aka Landon Mycles), Jake Lyons, Tommy Defendi and Chris Porter (returning from Season 1). For more info, visit NakedSword.com.…Speaking of online series, Dominic Ford’s special four-episode Sports month is drawing to a close with an all-new encounter between Parker London and Topher DiMaggio. In the 3-D scene, the models are seen chilling out after their photo shoot. “We gave them some flavored lube and let them go to town!” director Dom says. “Topher kept his football shoulder pads on for most of the scene.” In case you forgot, this series prominently features the products of Swiss Navy and if you order by March 1, you can still get a free sample of its lubes and condoms. To learn more, go to DominicFord.com.…Boycrush Studios cutie Andy Kay (below) has been working on a project for several years, and he’s now ready to unleash it on the world! The multitalented model-writer-director of inventive works such as Twinkblood and A Nightmare on Twink Street says that Andy Kay’s Boycrush Tryouts was “almost solely created from fan input and requests. The scenes included in this DVD are with popular Boycrush models before they started their porn careers, so you get nothing but pure, hot sex.” The film features Felix Russo, Ashton Cody, Dean Holland, Seth Serenity (seriously!?) and Kyler Moss as they fuck for their lives—or at least a part in a Boycrush production. Tryouts ships this week. To view a NSFW trailer, click here. For more, visit store.boycrush.com.

Fresh Face: Billy Heights


Jet Set Men has been making a fuss about a new model lately. You know, mysterious tweets about picking him up at the airport for some secret shoot. Well, now we see what they were getting excited about! That’s 23-year-old Billy Heights you see above (and below), and the New York City native (how did we miss him!?) has already filmed two scenes for the studio. According to Jet Set PR maven Rob Romoni, Heights has a background in “auto racing and all contact sports.” The tattooed cutie will be making his screen debut for Jet Set in early spring in a scene with Chaz Riley and then perform in another with exclusive Angel Rock. Although Heights attended a recent L.A. “awards” show, he’ll make his first official public appearance at Cocktails With the Stars at Micky’s in West Hollywood on March 17. For more information, visit JetSetMen.com.

First Look: Muscle Gods Celebration


We teased you last week with news of a new scene from porn superstar Robert Van Damme in director Gino Colbert’s latest release, Perverts, in which he’s paired with sexy Emilio Sands. Now we have reports of a whole new movie starring the Czech hunk who has weathered some tough times. Muscle Gods Celebration is basically a best-of compilation and features a slew of Van Damme’s finest erotic offerings and some of his beefiest co-stars, including Tyler Saint, Matthew Rush, Rob Romoni, Skye Woods, Coby Mitchell, Drake Jayden and Rick Hammersmith. “I believe this will catch the attention of every muscle fan,” Van Damme exclusively tells VincentLambert.com. His only bottoming scene (with Saint from the Private Party finale) is even on here. “I am not saying no to doing another bottoming scene,” Robert adds, “but it must be for a good reason. I am currently in talks with Adam Killian about doing a flip-flop scene, but it’s far from realization.” Well, we can always hope! In the meantime, Muscle Gods Celebration and all of Van Damme’s scenes and films, including this one, are available at RobertVanDamme.net and can be viewed for one low monthly fee. Welcome back, big guy!

Short Takes: Hard Choices are Made…and More


What do we need to brighten up a dreary February? More porn awards! Although we were less than high on some recent presentations, this week’s 17th-annual Hard Choice Awards actually have some street cred. Mostly because they are chosen by longtime porn columnist and expert Onan the Vulgarian, who always tells it like it is. And why shouldn’t he? He doesn’t secretly work for a studio! He and associate Harley Shadow, who is also our Twitter buddy (follow us @VinceLambertNYC), picked their personal faves with “no party, no fanfare, no shindig, no porn stars, no statuettes. Just the year’s best in all-male porn.” Sounds like a dream come true! Anyway, even though Onan writes that much of the past year’s porn work left him feeling “uninspired,” he and the Shadow managed to find numerous films and models to honor. Those include: Jonathan Agassi (above) for Performer of the Year; Angelo Marconi for Best Actor in Raging Stallion’s Brutal (which also deservedly took Best Art Direction); Andrew Justice for Best Supporting Actor in Joe Gage’s Dad Takes a Fishing Trip (Gage was named Best Director for the same film); Chris Porter for Best New Kid on the Block; and Lucas Entertainment’s underappreciated Spanish Seductions for Best Film (USA). To see the entire list of winners, visit xxfactor.com.…On the publishing side of the big biz (because we all love to read about gay porn), there are a few new print projects on the horizon. First, Mavety Media Group has announced the comeback of some of its formerly defunct gay porn magazines. Mandate is set to return this month, along with Playguy and one other. Popular classic titles, including Honcho, Inches, Black Inches and Latin Inches, were folded by Mavety almost two years ago. Time will tell whether anyone still wants gay porn in a nonelectronic format. In books, German publisher Taschen has decided to join the 3-D craze and rerelease its Big Penis Book from a couple of years back. The oversize volume includes the work of Bob Mizer, David Hurles and our old buddy Chuck. It also features porn superstar Chad Hunt on the cover—well, his basket anyway—now in 3-D! Finally, publisher Bruno Gmünder is readying a pretty picture book about the history of all-male adult entertainment. Titled Porn: From Andy Warhol to X-Tube (below), the book explores how porn has influenced both art and pop culture through the decades. It’s edited by Kevin Clarke and will be available next month. Happy reading, smart guys!

News: Director Gino Colbert Pervs Out


One of gay porn’s premier auteurs is back! Not that he’s really been gone. It was announced last week that award-winning director Gino Colbert is helming the first release for straight production house Devil’s Film new gay imprint, Devil’s Male. The film is titled Perverts, and it consists of four short vignettes that were written and directed by Colbert. “I have been sort of semiretired,” Colbert exclusively tells VincentLambert.com, “but I agreed to get the ball rolling for Devil’s Film because its general manager, Eric Mann, and I are old buddies. We worked together at Leisure Time, a straight company where I produced John Wayne Bobbitt: Uncut. That movie went on to become one of the highest-grossing in straight porn history.”

That’s an impressive track record, and it sounds like Devil’s Film is happy with the results of the reunion. “It was only fitting that we create a quality gay line shot here by a great director like Gino,” Devil’s Film national sales manager Steve Volponi told AVN. (Devil’s Male plans to release at least six titles per year.)

Perverts stars another industry fave who has been MIA for a bit: Robert Van Damme! It also features Adam Russo, Gianni Luca, Troy Michaels, Tristan Matthews, Jared Michaels, Emilio Sands, John Marcus and Lex Sabre. “I think there’s opportunity in the gay market for us if it’s quality enough,” Volponi added. “Gino turns in a great product. He did a really good job. If you’re gonna do it, you might as well come out swinging.” 

Perverts will street next week.

Short Takes: Vintage Poole on DVD…and More


One of gay porn’s renowned directors is getting the star treatment. Gorilla Factory Productions is releasing two movies from Boys in the Sand creator Wakefield Poole. The first, Moving!, is the director’s fourth film and is presented uncut for the first time on DVD (it was one of the first gay films to feature fisting​). It stars classic screen studs Casey Donovan (above), Val Martin and Peter Fisk. The second, One, Two, Three…, is Poole’s final movie and features JD Slater, Steve Kaye and Dave Connors (whose untimely suicide caused the film to be pulled from theaters). The DVD includes outtakes from the movies and excerpts from the upcoming feature-length documentary Dirty Poole, also being produced by Gorilla Factory. For more information, visit gf-productions.com.…In case you haven’t noticed, it’s awards season in Hollywood, so why shouldn’t gay porn get in on the act? Hey, if these guys weren’t busy slapping one another on the back, what else would they be slapping!? Anyway, while some awards shows last week were rampant with wasted porn stars, dubious outcomes and general chaos (and no nominations for us…cough), the ninth-annual XBIZ Awards were held at the Hollywood Palladium and honored some the big biz’s best and brightest. Although geared mostly toward the straight side of the industry, the XBIZ show did manage to sneak in a few gay categories, including: Superstud Spencer Reed (below) was named Gay Performer of the Year (btw, TheSword.com reported yesterday that Reed will be working solely with boyfriend Phillip Aubrey from now on—sob!); industry vet Joe Gage took Gay Director; Raging Stallion Studio’s Brutal (directed by Tony Dimarco) was named Gay Movie; Gay Studio went to Titan Media (for the fourth year in a row); and Lucas Entertainment was recognized as Gay Web Company. Congrats to all!

Guy Candy: Chris Evans for Gucci


We all know he’s gonna kill as Captain America this summer at the movies. But first, studly Chris Evans is bringing his superhero powers to a new ad campaign for Gucci. The scent is Gucci Guilty Pour Homme (a spicy mix of lavender, citrus and pink pepper), and it launches abroad next month and stateside in April. Besides the scintillating print ads you see here, Chris also filmed an online marketing campaign with actress Evan Rachel Wood. To view the futuristic clip, click here. And keep your eyes peeled for more ads, commercials (we hear the next one casts Evans as a modern-day cowboy)—and hopefully, more of his yummy (and hairy!) flesh.

Event: Robert W. Richards Shares His Life


ILLUSTRATION BY GLEN HANSON

One of our favorite artists is going the tell-all route. Or at least he’s putting down his drawing pencil long enough to share some of his wondrous world! Robert W. Richards presents Chapters in an Improbable Life tonight, Wednesday, February 9, at Dixon Place (161A Chrystie Street) in NYC at 7:30 pm. Robert is back with an updated retrospective of a freewheeling NYC gay life that now lives only in memory. Hmmm, wonder whether he recalls his amazing exhibitions, such as this one and this one. And his gorgeous porn star portraits that appeared in HX magazine in the ’90s. The show will also include a live performance by big-lunged lady singer Baby Jane Dexter and a poetry reading from the archives of infamous hustler and porn model Roy Garrett by Brandon Ruckdashel.

Seen: Porn Stars at Micky’s in Weho


Okay, for all you bitchy queens who were hoping for World War IV at Micky’s in West Hollywood last Thursday night, we’re sorry happy to report that the weekly Cocktails With the Stars event went off without a hitch. In fact, from what we hear, superagent David Forest (now of The Premiere Artists) reunited with Howard Andrew (of FabScout Entertainment, and the guy who purchased David’s company when he “retired” a couple of years back), and everyone was too busy ogling the hot porn models in attendance to notice! Seen: Jayden Grey (above from left), James Jamesson, John Magnum, Trent Diesel, Trevor Knight (newly retired…again?), Dylan Roberts and Ari Sylvio. Also spotted: directors Chi Chi LaRue and Jake Cruise. During the show, Forest’s latest client Jamesson revealed to host Scotty B that he and Roberts have known each other for 10 years and are old buds from middle school. Small (porn) world!

Short Takes: Sports Month in 3-D…and More


Listen up, gay Super Bowl viewers and dedicated jocks. (Anyone still reading!?) 3-D maven Dominic Ford has joined forces with Swiss Navy for a new online promotion this month. The “Sports” series of scenes and photos (some will be included in an upcoming book from Ford) is available throughout the month of February and is viewable in both 2-D and 3-D. The first sports-inspired scene was released last week and is a threesome starring Steven Daigle (in his 3-D debut!), John Magnum and Shane Frost. Additional athletic episodes will feature Dylan Roberts (above), Topher DiMaggio and Parker London and, of course, Swiss Navy products, including its many lubes and masturbation creams (what ever happened to spit!?). For more information, visit DominicFord.com. Oh, and anyone who signs up for a membership will receive free Swiss Navy samples and condoms. Score!…Bel Ami is joining the video-on-demand club with the launch of BelAmiTV.com. The all-new state-of-the-art VOD platform features about 125 movies from the company’s catalog, including classic titles from the past as well as new releases from hunky Lukas Ridgeston (now a director). “While Bel Ami’s membership site, BelAmiOnline, is thriving at a record pace,” a company rep says, “we recognize some fans still want the option to watch full-length DVDs on a pay-per-minute basis. This platform is perfect for them and features Bel Ami’s most successful and memorable titles. Both new and classic fans will go crazy over them!” For more, visit BelAmiTV.com.…Speaking of innovations, New York–based Lucas Entertainment announced last week that its flagship site is now available for the iPad. “Technology is constantly shifting boundaries,” says Lucas Entertainment president and CEO Michael Lucas (below). “We are at the forefront of accessibility and strive to deliver our product in every way possible. On the iPad, our Web site delivers the full-screen convenience of getting off wherever you are because you never know when the mood will strike: on an airplane, at the beach, during family visits. Everyone needs a porn break.” (On a plane!? Hope your seatmate is a fan!) The Lucas Entertainment site on the iPad streams top-quality video-on-demand movies (more than 150 titles) on an HTML5 player that works with the tablet’s Safari Web browser, plus model and action photo galleries and individual scenes (two new scenes added weekly). Take a tour at lucasentertainment.com/tour2. NYC readers, take note: Lucas Entertainment is looking for a few good men to appear as nonsexual extras in a scene for an upcoming film that is shooting on Tuesday, February 15, from 10 am to 4:30 pm. All you have to do is sit at a bar, sip a cocktail and watch Adam Killian strip. If you’re interested, write to chris@lucasentertainment.com. Nice work if you can get it!

News: Mitch Branson Returns With New Movie and Music


Zeb Atlas isn’t the only porn star making music these days. In fact, studly Mitch Branson released this album of original material two years ago. Well, now the renowned COLT man is back with a new song (no, it’s not a Diana Ross remake, but we like it!). The hirsute hunk is also in a new movie titled Man Tricks, his first in six months. “It was great to be with the team again,” Branson writes on his blog. “I had the pleasure of working with Kristian Alverez and damn, did his cock feel good inside of me.” As for the music, Mitch wrote, composed, produced and engineered the dance-friendly “Should I Fall In Love Again.” The four-track EP features DJ Pornstar and singer Kestral (she ain’t no Pearly Gates, but the gurl does have a certain Madonna-esque quality to her voice) and is available now on iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, Zune and others. For more information, visit MitchBranson.com.
