Event: HX Gay Erotic Expo 2008


While Madonna trotted out her Sticky and Sweet tour at Madison Square Garden, the sixth-annual HX Gay Erotic Expo unfolded across the street in the Grand Ballroom of the Manhattan Center. Exhibitors at this year’s two-day event included Cybersocket.com, Unzipped Media, Pjur Lubricants, Rentboy.com, JustUsBoys.com and TLA Video, among many others. Drag queen Sherry Vine hosted live shows throughout the weekend featuring porn stars, exotic dancers and fetish fashions. Seen (from top): Barrett Long promoting his new dildo (available at LongToy.com) and sharing plans to launch his own production company in 2009; Brad Benton and Johnny Hazzard talking up their here! cable TV show The Lair. Luckily Benton was his usual gregarious self because Hazzard was playing the part of reticent porn star and only uttered a single word (“No”) during their on-stage “patter”; always cute and fun Jason Crew, who’s been shooting for Lucas Entertainment lately; studly Vinnie D’Angelo; newly named Raging Stallion Man of the Year Ricky Sinz; hot couple Angel Skye and Brad Star plugging their AngelSlutGarden.com site; Jake Cruise with his posse, including handsome Zack Cook (far right), announcing the debut of his new CockSureMen.com site, which will feature a mix of old and new material with some fetish stuff thrown in for good measure; model Colton with the vivacious Jackson Wild (right), who told us that he’s relocating to Manhattan from his native Chicago in December. Watch out, NYC!; and sexy Mike Dreyden, who was seen everywhere this weekend because the hirsute hunk was the poster boy for the Erotic Expo. Mike revealed to us that he just finished shooting his first movie for Raging Stallion and was directed by the award-winning Tony Dimarco in a scene with tattooed hottie Logan McCree. Sounds like this local go-go god is on his way!

Nice pics! I was on the fence about going this year, then something came up and I couldn't anyway. How was it? Looks like some good performers but was it a bit tame? The year at, I forget the clubs name now, was WILD!
