Web Watch: The Engagement, Parts 1 and 2


Who cares about the Royal Wedding when we’ve got these guys!? Jake Cruise’s Cocksure Men invites viewers to enjoy six of its hottest exclusive models (Brady Jensen, Kevin Crows, Morgan Black, Mitch Vaughn, Guy Jones and Robert Axel) in the two-part The Engagement. In Part 1, Jensen and Crows announce their plans to marry and their buds celebrate by having one helluva cocksucking orgy. Part 2 opens with the studs showering off, which naturally leads to one massive sixway. Brady and Kevin take four loads as an early gift. Who said that hunky grooms shouldn’t share with their well-hung wedding party?! Both parts of The Engagement (plus behind-the-scenes footage) will be released on DVD later this spring. For more information, visit CocksureMen.com.

News: Superstar Ken Ryker to “Hang Out”


Anyone remember Ken Ryker? You know, big guy with a big dick? Hasn’t made a movie in years? Well, the Premiere Artists agency has just announced that Big Ken will be making his first-ever live appearances at Micky’s in West Hollywood next month as part of the Ryker Hangs Out tour. The porn superstar, now 39, is set to “hang out” with fans. He’ll sign autographs, pose for pictures and do a Q&A session with host Scotty B. But there will be “no stripping, no jacking off.” No way! (Hooker lovers, take note: Ken is also available for “private meetings.”)

Talent manager David Forest tells us that “response from gay clubs nationwide, in just the first few days, has been overwhelming.” And additional dates for Ken to hang out will be announced as they are confirmed. That’s good because GAYVN Hall of Famer Ryker will be kicking off a month of Forest-fueled events at Micky’s Cocktails With the Stars in May. Following Ryker’s appearance on May 5, muscle hunk Zeb Atlas is set for May 19 (to plug his new self-produced Zeb Atlas Is the Boyfriend film) and sexy Jason Crew is scheduled for May 26 (to celebrate his 10-year anniversary in the big biz).

New Release: Cock Cruisin


Jet Set Men’s latest release is Cock Cruisin, and it claims to be a “realistic exploration of manhunting where cocksure men take on some cocky boys.” Sounds like competing-studio synergy to us! Anyway, this new film from director John Bruno takes its sexy cast to the rough-and-tumble streets of Los Angeles (Weho? ha!), where “hot guys are looking for some hard, quick action and it doesn’t matter where it happens.” M-kay. Among the happening studs are megahung Samuel O’Toole (above) and cute Jet Set exclusive Angel Rock (below). Also featured in the five high-def scenes are Jason Michaels, James Jamesson, Mick Gibson, Derek Chambers, Perry Perice, Conner MaGuire and Brandon Wilde. For more information, visit JetSetMen.com.

Short Takes: Brodie’s Back…and More


For those who might have forgotten, porn star Brodie Sinclair (above) has a storied past in the big biz. First, he signed with Raging Stallion back in 2007 (and appeared in the award-winning Grunts and Savage), then he trashed the very same studio later that year. Then he signed with FPG Entertainment (who!?) in 2008 before moving on to Cockyboys on the Web the following month. What happened next? The notorious gay-for-pay top disappeared without a trace, of course! Well, now Cockyboys is bringing back the bad boy, and Sinclair has just wrapped several new scenes for the online studio. Btw, the Cockyboys.com site will be relaunching next month (with all-new scenes, layout, HD-quality content and a brand-new members area), and Brodie’s scenes will be timed accordingly. We hear that former Cockyboys exclusives Phenix Saint and Andrew Blue (wasn’t he a Jet Set Men exclusive, too?) have also filmed new material that will debut in April. For more information, visit Cockyboys.com.…Bijou Video continues to bring us the best of yesteryear’s gay porn. The company recently rereleased a classic that has been out of print for a decade. Bijou has restored Roger Earl and Terry LeGrand’s Like Moths to a Flame, which is the second installment in the Dungeon of Europe trilogy. Shot in Amsterdam, the film features some heavy-duty S&M, bondage and piercing. (Co-director LeGrand is now the host of LA Talk Radio’s The Alternative—a talk show on which Vince was a guest last fall.) Bijou has also unearthed four Nova Productions movies from the mid-1970s that were previously available only on 8mm film (not VHS or DVD): Voyeur Boys (featuring the late and great Jack Wrangler), Tricking, Kyd Stuff and Jocks. Watch and learn, kids. To see more, visit BijouVideo.com.…Back to the present: Cocksure Men exclusive Riley Price (below, left) has just made his debut on the site in a hot duo with fellow ginger Rick McCoy. “Rick and I were like two fireworks lighting each other up and exploding all over each other,” Price says. “I think we look like a couple of little sex devils in the scene!” The red terrors kiss, suck and rim each other, then Riley bangs Rick into tomorrow. To check out Price’s premier scene for the site, visit CocksureMen.com.

Seen: Canned Ham Star Gus Mattox in NYC


PHOTO BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Actually, his name is Tom Judson now, but most of our readers know him as porn superstar Gus Mattox. That doesn’t mean he’s not also a multitalented singer, actor, writer, pianist—and dancer, despite what he claims in his hit one-man show, which is currently playing at Dixon Place (161A Chrystie Street) in New York City. Canned Ham has been on the road for a bit (it played in Provincetown last summer), and now it’s finally in tip-top shape (like Tom himself). The play, written by the star and directed by Kevin Malony, tells the story of how Judson went from playing on Broadway and in road companies of Cabaret and 42nd Street to become the star of porn films such as this and this. In between, he falls in love, loses his partner to AIDS and finds the courage to build a new life. It’s all very uplifting and inspirational for the gays, but it’s also funny (tales of fellow porn stars Pierre Fitch and Francois Sagat had the audience roaring), warm (Chi Chi LaRue, who discovered Judson many years ago on a cold night in Minneapolis, is fondly recognized) and touching (the finality of scattering the ashes of his dead lover). And how can you deny the many talents of a gorgeous guy who parades around in a jockstrap (at age 50!) and plays 12 different musical instruments throughout the 80-minute show? Hey, whatever Judson lacks in dancing skills, he makes up with sheer charm. Canned Ham (named after the rebuilt camper in which Judson tours the country) closes out its run tonight through Saturday. Don’t miss it! For more information, visit DixonPlace.org.

PHOTOS BY BRUCILLA X

We’ve got more from BPX: The Black Party Expo and the 2011 International Escort Awards (aka the Hookies) last weekend in NYC. Here are some of the beautiful and famous faces we spotted among the throng at Roseland. Seen (from top): 2010’s Escort of the Year winner Gio, who this year took Best Live Performer (and asked the crowd for a moment of silence for the people of Japan. Political porn stars! We love it!); Lucas Entertainment exclusive Avi Dar; porn veteran Jay Black; just a few of the modest twinks working the JustUsBoys.com booth; retired porn superstar Gus Mattox, plugging his Canned Ham show (more on that tomorrow); classic screen stud Chase Hunter, who won Best Daddy; DJ Chi Chi LaRue rocking the decks; and Hookies host Leslie Jordan in gay heaven with numerous porn hunks.

Seen: Porn Stars at BPX and Hookies in NYC


PHOTOS BY BRUCILLA X

Okay, so it looks like we survived another year of the Black Party. No reported overdoses or fatalities…yet! (Death by fisting!? Ouch!). Last weekend’s events kicked off with BPX: The Black Party Expo at Roseland in NYC. The usual assortment of pornsters and fans turned out to peruse the booths and perhaps pick up a dildo or buttplug on sale.

As the evening unfolded, so did the 2011 International Escort Awards (aka the Hookies). This fifth-annual celebration of the guys who rent (by the hour) got off to a fun start with a sexy dance number by the Daisy Spurs troupe and an onstage mooning from the men of Lucas Entertainment. It was during this portion of the show that porn star Rafael Alencar got up close and personal with one thirsty audience member (and fan, we hope!) by pissing in his mouth. Yuck! Yum! By the time diminutive Leslie Jordan came out to host, the crowd was thirsty for some awards. Jordan proclaimed himself the perfect host for the event because he had hired his first hooker at the age of 14!

Then it was on to the presentations, and multi-hyphenate porn stars/escorts were well represented: Samuel Colt won Best Porn Star; Alessio Romero was awarded Best Tattoos (which he explained were in honor of his sobriety); Ben Andrews was named Biggest Cock (no surprise there); Logan Stevens took Best Newcomer (though in his speech he seemed to think he was winning for Best B.O.); and adorable Jayden Grey was named Best Boyfriend Fantasy (huh?). Presenters included Chi Chi LaRue (who also spun); Michael Lucas; Robin Byrd; Michael Musto; Derek Hartley; and a bizarre Sarah Palin impersonator.

Seen (from top): Jayden Grey; Samuel Colt with boyfriend Chris Porter (and his love bite); Alessio Romero; the always subtle Rafael Alencar and his banana; oversize winner Ben Andrews; porn couple Phillip Aubrey and Spencer Reed with Adam Killian; porn veteran Michael Brandon, who hosted one of his Inappropriate Behavior bashes over the weekend; and host Leslie Jordan getting a boost from Arpad Miklos. More pics on the way, guys!

Short Takes: TitanMen’s New Guy…and More


Titan Media has a new model to brag about. Handsome Scotch Inkom (above) has signed a multi-year contract with the SF-based studio. The 40-year-old stud will make his TitanMen debut in the upcoming film Intuition. “Signing with TitanMen is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for me,” Inkom says, “and I feel lucky to work for the best company in the industry.” The Canada native, who is versatile, has spent years as a physique and fashion model and dancer. It shows! “Scotch has completed five scenes with us since we first worked with him last year in Palm Springs,” director Brian Mills says. “He’s a very handsome man.

The film features numerous oversize superstars of the studio, including exclusives D.O., Logan McCree, Aybars and Rusty Stevens (below with Marcus Mojo). Cheers!

Friday’s event will also be part of the preparty for this year’s Hookies International Escort Awards (perhaps you remember last year’s show…we don’t!), where pint-size comic Leslie Jordan will host and DJ Chi Chi LaRue will spin. (Also scheduled to appear at the Hookies are porn stars Spencer Reed, Michael Lucas, Adam Killian, Arpad Miklos, Rafael Alencar and Gus Mattox.) For more information, visit blackpartyexpo.com.

News: Jesse Santana Signs With RSS


We had a feeling he was poised for a comeback. After a brief hiatus from the gay porn spotlight, Jesse Santana has joined the Raging Stallion Studios family of exclusives. Under the new deal, the now-manly 25-year-old Texas native will perform in productions for both RSS and Falcon Studios (now merged) over the next year. “I’m back and couldn’t be more thrilled!” Santana says. “At some point during my break from the cameras, I started to miss it all.” Jesse has previously worked for Jet Set Men and Cockyboys. (He also dated fellow porn star Guy Parker and wanted everyone to know he was not a hooker.) Santana recently filmed a scene for Naked Sword’s Golden Gate online series. Following the shoot, he says, “I then hear from [RSS president] Chris Ward himself, that he wants me to be a part of his stable of stars.” Jesse joins numerous RSS exclusives, including Kennedy Carter, Chris Porter, D.O. and Logan Scott. “Are you kidding?” Santana asks. “I most certainly couldn’t say no to that! A company that loves my tats and piercings, and encourages my personal sexual style and preferences. This experience is going to be a whole lot of fun.”

Ward agrees: “We are very excited about bringing Jesse into our family of performers. He is a showstopper of an actor—stunningly handsome and with the kind of charisma that makes a star a star. We have great plans for Jesse…and I think he will be one of the top stars of the next year!”

Santana is currently enrolled in the School of Culinary Arts in Los Angeles. For more information, visit RagingStallion.com.

Short Takes: Hazzard on Blue Side…and More


Porn superstar Johnny Hazzard (above) has flown the coop—the Channel 1 Releasing coop, that is. Following many years as a C1R exclusive, the tattooed screen stud has joined the Randy Blue crew online. Hazzard, who made his debut in 2003, has appeared in about 40 films, including his award-winning role in Wrong Side of the Tracks, In His Dreams and Hazzard Zone. He has also done mainstream acting on here! TV’s The Lair, modeled for Boy George and designed his own fashion line. “Always one to try new things, Johnny has signed on with Randy Blue and is ready to start banging his way through our roster of naked gay muscle hunks and horny college guys,” a Randy Blue rep confirms. Hazzard’s first scene on the site is a solo. For more information, visit RandyBlue.com.…While we’re on the subject of exclusives, another online studio has announced a new one, but we haven’t seen his face yet! To celebrate its two-year anniversary, DominicFord.com has divulged the signing of a new model named Bryce Evans. (His perfect torso is pictured below.) Anyone heard of this guy? Evans will be featured in a series of ad campaigns and weekly updates throughout April. But we’ll have to wait until spring, when his first hard-core scenes are released, to see the rest of him. “Bryce has never been seen on film before, is completely new to the industry and is the total package,” director Dom Ford says. “I can’t wait to share him with the world.” We can’t wait either!.…Awards season will soon be upon us (didn’t it just end!?), so it’s only fitting that we mention the upcoming Grabby Awards (set for May 28 in Chicago). We just found out that porn star Shane Frost has been picked to be one of the co-hosts this year. The Boston native will join perennial hosts Chi Chi LaRue and Honey West, plus British stud Dean Monroe and kinkster Tony Buff. Frost follows in the footsteps of fan-voted favorites such as Wolf Hudson, Jeremy Bilding and Roman Heart. Tickets for the big show go on sale April 4. To learn more, visit Grabbys.com.

New Release: Gentlemen Vol. 1, Men in Suits


We love a man in a uniform—and what uniform is sexier than a tailored business suit? Lucas Entertainment is hoping to turn on all the suit fetishists out there with a new series of films that will feature manly men of power and intrigue dressed in power suits, ties and dress shoes. Titled Gentlemen, the series will launch with the appropriately named Men in Suits. “I think there is nothing sexier than men dressed in classic suits,” Lucas Entertainment president and CEO Michael Lucas says. “The Gentlemen line will be an incredible success as already shown by our orders from customers and distributors alike.” The Russian director has made news and won awards before with highly stylized films such as Michael Lucas’ La Dolce Vita and Encounters and the more recent Trapped in the Game and After Hours. Men in Suits stars Jeremy Bilding, John Magnum, Steven Daigle, Adam Killian, Alessio Romero, Arpad Miklos, RJ Alexander, Cavin Knight, Connor Habib and Ryan Patrick. Suit up!

Web Watch: On the Hunt Site Revamped


Okay, Manhunters, we know you’ve been eagerly awaiting the rebranding of Manhunt’s sister site (brother site?), On the Hunt. (Because guys who spank it to online porn are keenly aware of branding and rebranding!) Anyway, this is the site that debuted about two years ago (with certain porn stars starring and directing) where supposedly amateur members are paired with other alleged amateur members for sex. And we get to watch! According to the good guys at Manhunt (though we’re still mad at them because the beta version of Chat never works!), the latest incarnation of the site features “a more dynamic, modern and sleek design” that shows off the hottest members in all their glory. And to prove that, the big comeback scene features underwear-clad Manhunt cuties Michael and Lucas (no relation to the Russian porn superstar), who hooked up in Miami. To see more, visit OntheHunt.com.

Short Takes: Aspen’s Sexy Side…and More


The title The Other Side of Aspen brings chills (and hard-ons) to porn fans of a certain age. After all, who can forget superstar Johnny Hanson’s sizzling scenes with Cliff Parker in Part III and Chad Knight in Part IV? Even though it’s been 10 years since the last edition (directed by John Rutherford) in the popular and best-selling series from Falcon Studios, a whole new generation of online jackers is about to experience the joys of the snowy saga. The sixth installment just wrapped filming on location in Colorado California (not Aspen) with Chris Ward at the helm. It’s his first assignment for Falcon since the merging of the venerable studio with Raging Stallion. The cast includes Landon Conrad, Tony Buff, Roman Heart (above from left), Adam Killian, Shane Frost, Brandon Bangs and Gavin Waters. We don’t have the release date for Aspen 6 yet, but we do know that porn star Steve Cruz is serving as cameraman for the sex scenes and award-winning director Tony Dimarco is shooting the behind-the-scenes and bonus footage. Oh, and it took three days to film the big eight-man orgy. Tough work! For more newsy news on the shoot, visit SteveCruzBlog.com…While we’re on the subject of classic porn, Canadian cable channel HardTV just launched a month of programming that features some of Bijou Video’s most famous releases. Hosted by Richard Ryder, Saturday Nights at the Bijou will broadcast two movies a week in March, including legendary titles such as Wanted (starring Al Parker), The Bigger, the Better (with Rick Donovan), A Night at the Adonis (featuring Jack Wrangler) and A Few Good Men.

Fresh-faced porn star Vince Ryan (below on right) is taking it like a man in a new scene with Dean Coxx for the Club Dean site. It all starts with an innocent game of Truth or Dare that soon evolves into kissing, rimming and flip-flop fucking. “Vince Ryan really exceeded my expectations,” Coxx says. “It’s one of the best scenes, if not the best scene, we’ve shot so far. He’s so uninhibited and just plain fun to work with!” Ryan also takes a face full of jizz. To view the frivolity, visit ClubDean.com.

Seen: Ralph Woods at NYC Club Debut


Anyone remember Ralph Woods? He’s the onetime Bel Ami and Falcon model who appeared in films such as French Kiss (for which he won a GAYVN Award), Big Dick Club and Some Like It Big. (Oh, and didn’t he have a publicity stunt relationship with this fellow porn star!?) Well, it’s about time the industry veteran made his NYC debut, which he did this week at Le Boyz’s All-Male Cabaret in Midtown. We hear that Woods danced to three songs and then was “nice, friendly and adorable” as he mingled with his still faithful fans. Good to hear that the sexy twink is as sweet (and thin!) as he seems in movies.

Event: Lucky Daniels at Boxers in NYC


Look who’s back in town! It wasn’t so long ago that Lucky Daniels was poised to be gay porn’s next big thing. Sadly, a family tragedy blindsided the superstar-in-waiting and he turned his focus away from movies (such as this and this), photo shoots and club dates. Well, now he’s back and NYC has got him—for one night anyway! Daniels will be taking the stage at the opening night of Spring Training Thursday at Boxers (37 West 20th Street) tonight, March 3. The popular Chelsea sports bar will host Lucky and other go-go gods, all dancing to the music of DJ Aaron Elvis. Sports-themed porn will play on the big-screen TVs, and if you’re already thinking ahead to summer on Fire Island, you can join the Boxers Banging Beach Body Club, a competition in which you get weighed in weekly and win prizes if you achieve your goals. Sounds like fun, though not as much fun as a box of Trader Joe’s new Peanut Butter Goodies cookies! For more on Lucky at Boxers, visit DanielNardicio.com.

Web Watch: C1R Starts New Dirk Yates Site

Channel 1 Releasing is giving fans of veteran director Dirk Yates complete access to his sizable catalog of military men for the first time via a new Web site. The legendary Yates has worked in the industry for nearly three decades, overseeing the popular Private Collection video series and directing numerous movies. He went on to found All Worlds Video and had a hand in discovering many studs, including our personal faves Dean Phoenix and Rod Barry. Thanks, Dirk! (He also launched this Palm Springs resort, where we were guests.) Acquired by Channel 1 in 2006, All Worlds was folded into the company co-owned by Chi Chi LaRue, where the venerable Dirk Yates brand lives on. Now, the new Dirk Yates Web site gives members a chance to view all his classic military porn from the C1R archives at a low monthly fee. The site offers full-length feature films, amateur video collections, live show archives and some never-before-seen footage. The content is also compatible with the iPad, iPhone and Android.
