News: Roman Ragazzi Passes Away

We’re sad to say that reports of porn star Roman Ragazzi’s death are true. Details are still unknown, but the onetime Raging Stallion exclusive was found dead in his NYC home over the weekend. He was 38. Ragazzi was known for performing in films such as Tailpipes, Grunts, Playback and Savage in 2007 and 2008. He was also named RSS’s Man of the Year and won a GAYVN Award for Best Sex Scene (with Ricky Sinz) in 2008. In the early days of this site, we covered him extensively, including the controversy surrounding the high-profile job he quit after being outed in The New York Post.

Israeli-born Ragazzi went on to start his own business and become a personal trainer. He recently modeled in a swimwear photo shoot in the February issue of Out magazine, but he mostly distanced himself from the industry. Director and friend Michael Lucas tells VincentLambert.com: “Roman was a true Israeli, tough outside yet gentle inside. I feel terrible and guilty that I was not there for him more. My deep condolences to his family and friends.” We knew Roman a bit over the years and always found him to be a sweet and smart man. And if you’ve ever seen his movies, you know how beautiful he was. Thankfully, his work lives on. RIP, RR.

New Release: Tosh.Hole

The queen (studio) of gay porn parodies is back. Jet Set Men, producer of smash hits such as Anthony’s Weener, To Fuck a Predator, Jersey Score 1 and 2, has returned with its latest send-up, Tosh.Hole. This takeoff on Comedy Central’s clip-driven TV show with the cute host, Tosh.0, is the studio’s first gay porn parody release of 2012. Inventive director Chris Steele uses bits from previous Jet Set films, adds in a laugh track and some hilarious outtakes to create hot new scenarios. Think Punk’d without the overbearing emcee.

Tosh.Hole stars Ryan Lynch (top pic) as the hoodied host of a Soup-esque clip show who loves dick but isn’t gay. During a tranny segment, he gets so hard that he ends up topping adorable Alex Andrews. Besides appearing in a flip-flop scene with Dustin Fitch, military man Mick Gibson wrote and performs his own Tosh.Hole tribute song. When Jessie Colter’s favorite video console is stolen, what else is there to do but throw a hissy fit and fuck himself with the remote control?! Luckily his “brother” Drake Wild enters to provide some real meat. And for fans of prison rape fantasies, muscle hunks Tyler Saint James and Derek Fox (second pic) provide an eye-popping example.

“Watching Tosh.Hole could be the first time you laugh out loud while jerking off,” Jet Set Men VP of casting and marketing Rob Romoni says. “Colter’s performance left everyone on the set in tears and covered in sweat.” And Twitter superstar Romoni knows funny!

Seen: AustinZane Studs at Cocktails in LA

It was another scorchy night at Cocktails With the Stars at Micky’s in West Hollywood last week. That’s when Austin Andrews and Zane Michaels of the AustinZane Web site appeared. The guys did the usual sit and chat with host Scotty B, but from the looks of these pics (courtesy Photos by Larry), the notoriously hetero buds got funky and somewhat naked for the crowd. The pair, who first made their mark as amateurs on StraightCollegeMen, recently shot a bromantic Valentine’s Day scene for their site. The bearded Andrews is also nominated to co-host the 2012 Grabby Awards, set for Saturday, May 26, in Chicago. Good times for straight dudes!

News: Former Kink Star Opens Gym in FL

We’ve written about hunky Mike Verdugo before. First, back in 2008 when his porn past was revealed after he was a contestant on HGTV’s Design Star. And again when he was suspended from his job as a police officer due to that porn past. Now, The Miami Herald is reporting that the 37-year-old fitness trainer has opened a gym in Davie, Florida. Verdugo told the newspaper that he made the kink film Rope Rituals for director Tom McGurk in 1996 at age 22 for $700. He says that he appeared naked but didn’t engage in any hard-core sex. (As we recall from the VHS copy we had back in the day, he was tied up.) The Hollywood Police Department claims it fired Verdugo for not disclosing his previous work. “One door closed and a few opened,” a philosophical Verdugo says. His new Bodytek Fitness is averaging 300 customers a week and he plans to open another in Wilton Manors. So there is life after gay porn. Amen!

News: RSS Signs Newcomer Derek Parker

Manly Derek Parker is the latest stud to sign a long-term exclusive contract with Raging Stallion Studios. The furry, bearded and tattooed newbie was recently discovered and signed after he shot his first scene, which will appear in the soon-to-be-released Fucked Up. Parker was part of a six-man orgy directed by company president Chris Ward. “Derek is the embodiment of Raging Stallion—beefy, edgy and rugged,” Ward says. “He fits the bill exactly—great body, handsome face and just the right amount of roughness and toughness. On top of that, he’s a versatile and intense performer who will charm the pants off our fans, literally. We’re excited to get him scheduled for more upcoming projects.”

Derek appears in two scenes in Fucked Up (due out March 30) and has shot two more that will be seen in currently untitled RSS productions. “When I started considering doing porn, I only wanted to work with a major studio,” Parker says. “A friend of mine who has worked with Raging Stallion helped me get a meeting there, and everything fell into place. They are working with a lot of guys that I find really hot, and the whole team made me feel welcome and excited, especially Chris Ward and Steve Cruz, who made me feel right at home and helped me deliver my best.” For more information, visit RagingStallion.com.

News: Twins Are Still In!

Twins are hot! And most of the time they’re gay, right!? But are they hot having sex together? Or in the same room/scene at least? The gays seem to be split on this one. Incest is still one of the few surviving taboos, no? In our recent gay porn past, bros Fernando and Fabrizio Mangiatti got together for Lucas Entertainment in 2007. Milo and Elijah Peters got censored in the United Kingdom in 2009 for this scene they did for Bel Ami. Channel 1 Releasing scored major hits with twin sets such as Luca and Liam Rosso (Chi Chi LaRue directs them in the new sex thriller Spitting Image: Twin Trouble) and Adam and Konrad Richter (director William Higgins put them through their paces in Double Czech: Twins in Lust), but some viewers still got a bit squeamish at these overt displays of brotherly love. (There’s also the Visconti Triplets, but we won’t go there!)

IstanBoys is now joining in to double your fun. The premier site for Turkish and Arab twinks is currently featuring twin brothers Erdem and Adem (above), who end up fucking each other. Lord save us all! IstanBoys also features photos, videos, discussion forums, personals, chat, escort ads and Istanbul gay travel guide. And you get a subscription to the popular Maximo Latino site when you join. Sounds like a must for lovers of ethnic men—and now, fans of twincest! For more, visit IstanBoys.com.

News: Cockyboys Signs Newbie Jake Bass

There’s a new Cockyboy in town. Yes, another! Supercute Jake Bass is the latest in a long line of exclusives to sign with the NYC-based online studio. Bass, who has previously worked for VideoBoys, will soon be seen in a new scene with Tommy Defendi in which the versatile newcomer tops. “Jake has ‘Cockyboy’ written all over him,” a press release says. “He’s a total show-off and charismatic charmer who oozes confidence with his deceptively innocent smile and a tight, smooth, inked-up body that will be an integral part of our original programming in the months ahead.” The studio adds that Jake is part street kid, part skater boy with a punk rock attitude. Good combo! This tattooed free spirit has already filmed a solo and two scenes (with fellow exclusives Gabriel Clark and Mason Star), which are available now.
