News: Mark Dalton Back Behind Bars

According to talent agent David Forest, his star client Mark Dalton is being held in custody tonight by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice due to an “altercation” he had on May 31. No decision has been made yet on his future parole status. Forest says that they temporarily “stopped” Dalton’s parole because he had a “run-in” with police that involved two misdemeanors (rumored to be assault/family violence and interference with a 911 call). However, at this time, he has not been charged with anything but is incarcerated at the Denton County Jail.

“There’s really no telling how long he’ll have to wait to see if charges are going to be filed,” says Forest. “If they are, then he’ll stay behind bars until the case is completed. Then he’ll go before the parole board and they’ll decide whether he’ll be charged with a parole violation (and be returned to prison) or be continued on parole (and not put back in prison).”

Forest adds that Dalton was looking forward to this Saturday’s appearances in Houston with his Texas Two-Step co-star Zeb Atlas at the Pride Parade and South Beach Nightclub.

Movie Review: How to Seduce a Straight Man


Director: Jett Blakk.
Cast: Jordan Vaughn, RC Ryan, Adam Faust, Zackary Pierce, Brett Mathews, Christian Owen, Nick Capra, Aaron Archer.

Red Devil Entertainment and Jett Blakk give lessons to those who are interested in How to Seduce a Straight Man. In four clever scenes, the writer/director offers such helpful tips as: “Tell them stories to get them horny.” Which is exactly the premise of “The Hot Tub,” the first scene in the movie. Beefy Nick Capra entices newcomer Aaron Archer with the tale of a horny bellhop. This seems to do the trick, because Archer is soon diving deep to suck his first cock. Some good underwater photography (by Drew Warner) is the highlight of this scene. Eventually Capra tops the supposedly straight but very willing Archer, who jacks to completion. In “Six Beers,” RC Ryan gets dumped by his girlfriend and Adam Faust is only too happy to comfort him—with a blowjob. Ryan is just drunk enough to pound the bearded Faust and spew on his balls. “The Drive-in” features muscular cover model Jordan Vaughn, who is duped by a superblond Christian Owen into trading oral and then fucking. (Owens also pulls a sly Justin Timberlake–esque dick-in-the-popcorn-box gag. Tasty!) But the final scene, “The Hitchhiker,” has the best setup and delivery. Hairy Brett Mathews picks up Carson Daly look-alike Zackary Pierce on a country road and somehow winds up doing the tango with him on a beach at sunset. This is a charming scene (the DVD extras show us the cuties as they rehearse), and dancer Mathews even choreographed their sexy moves. Once in bed, the guys shyly start to play and Blakk builds the sexual tension between them. By the time Pierce tentatively tries out Mathews’ piece, you’ll be cheering for the pink team. The lighting is moody and sensual, and the performances are both believable and hot. Picture quality is good throughout, and the whole effort will entertain viewers—and maybe even teach them a thing or two. (Red Devil Entertainment)

Should Do Porn: Real World’s Johnny Bananas

When MTV headed to Florida a couple of years back for The Real World: Key West, it offered up more of the usual: drinking, partying, hooking up, in-house fighting, drama (hurricanes!) and one especially vile homo “character” (the ridiculous Tyler Duckworth, who was an embarrassment to the gay community, if not the entire human race). Among the wasted youth was lovable John (aka Johnny Bananas), a hunky frat boy who could always be counted on to hit the streets of sleepy Key West to pound some beers with his buds. Later, he would take a dip in the pool, showing off his manly physique and boyish charms. A quick search reveals that John is from Fullerton, California, and a recent grad of Penn State. So what’s a former reality star to do when the Inferno burns out? Come on, Johnny B: Should Do Porn!

Movie Review: In His Dreams


Chi Chi LaRue.
Cast: Johnny Hazzard, Chad Savage, Jan Fischer, Luca Di Corso, Trent Atkins, Eddie Diaz, Tory Mason, Emilio Sands, T.J. Young.

Dreamy Johnny Hazzard is taking a nap, and we get to watch. It’s a very long nap, about two hours. But In His Dreams is more exciting than it sounds. Mostly because we don’t get stuck watching the handsome Rascal exclusive drool and snore; instead we get to see his sexy (and surprisingly arty) dreams. First, Hazzard conjures a hairy (but trimmed) Luca Di Corso having some fun with lithe Eddie Diaz. This pair is beautifully photographed on a cool austere set—and the sex is good too. They suck and fuck and shoot on each other. But Johnny continues his REM cycle and brings together twink T.J. Young (creative name, guys!) and All Worlds exclusive Chad Savage on a lovely green sofa. Savage is gorgeous and built and seems to enjoy topping newbie Young, who manages to produce a gravity-defying cum shot for his debut. Nice job! Next, a trio of studs work it out in a very red room. Dark and wiry Emilio Sands and cute blondie Tory Mason play a game of dueling six-packs and Rascal exclusive Jan Fischer gets to lick them both. These young guys have lots of energy and take turns switching off. Johnny finally gets himself in on the action in the last scene. A beefy Trent Atkins crawls under Hazzard’s sheets for some deep-throating. Johnny eats ass and pounds Atkins before delivering an amazing pop shot. Hey, you don’t get on box covers for nothing! Hazzard and his Dreams are expertly lit and shot. The music is moody and just right. Director Chi Chi LaRue (who is seen in boy drag in a Behind the Scenes DVD extra) achieves a sleek high-tech feel without sacrificing the grit and pure emotion of real sex. Great picture quality only adds to the package. This one’s a dream! (Channel 1 Releasing/Rascal Video)

News: Mark Meets Zeb Released

Marina Pacific has released the much-anticipated Mark Meets Zeb: The Texas Two-Step, and it is now being sold exclusively through TLA Video. According to agent David Forest, “Everyone needs to get a copy of the movie, then do a critique of what you see. If things do as well as I think they’re going to—and the sales are strong on this first one—I think Zeb Atlas and Mark Dalton will step things up and go to the next level of XXX action in a second one (just my honest feeling, there are no set-in-stone plans). The guys wanted to see how folks responded, sales-wise, to this debut project.” The movie is currently No. 1 on the TLA sales charts.

A rep for Marina Pacific, which signed a three-picture deal with Atlas earlier this year, tells VincentLambert.com that there is “touching“ between the models and a sexy shower scene. The bodybuilding icons also pump up and pose for each other and do lots of muscle-worshipping. But the only sex is solo…for this movie anyway. Stay tuned, guys.

Event: Spike’s Art Exhibition


Porn star Spike shared an intimate side of himself last night at Posh. No, not that side! The star of films such as Gangbang Café and Serviced showed off his talent as a painter with an exhibition of his artwork at the Midtown lounge. On display was a series of 17 paintings, all focused on the theme of martinis. “I just came up with the idea and then did them all in about three weeks,” says Spike, who has painted sets for mainstream Hollywood movies. But don’t worry, guys—he plans a return to porn later this year. Bottom’s up!
