I’m in pink heaven because a new season of Project Runway started this week on the Bravo channel and it gayer (if possible) than ever. As always there is the handsome Tim Gunn and the orange skinned Michael Kors. All the men but one are gay. You have your Super gay Christian who is 21 with hair from 80's Flock of Seagulls. Jack has a body of a superhero and wants a sugar daddy, Rami is the other hottie with chiseled face and body to match. For comic relief that have the heavy set Chris with the sharp wit. Kevin the token straight guy makes sure to tell us all that he's not gay in the first show and that the str8s are designers too (we will see). Three other moe’s Ricky with 14 siblings and Steven with the kinda geeky smile and Marlon, if you blinked you missed his screen time all; finish up the men’s gay cast. With all the weird and quirky personalities, this year looks to be filled with talent and drama. YEAH!

Gay for Pay Johnny Castle is Men’s Magazine 2007 Man of the Year taking over the crown from Zeb Atlas the 2006 winner. More than 10,000 votes from readers all over the world were tallied and Castle is the clear winner. He appears on the cover of the Men’s 2008 Calendar and was featured on the cover and inside the magazine’s March 2007 issue.
Castle began his adult career doing straight films and to date he has only appeared in solo scenes for gay adult internet sites and studios. He started touring as a featured performer in gay nightclubs early August and was “an instant hit” according to David Forest his agent.
"I'm in Pennsylvania visiting family for the holidays [right now]," Castle said. "I'm still not believing that I won. I called David [Forest] back three times just in case they had made a mistake. This has really been a great year!"
Maybe next year we will get a hot gay guy as the “Man of the Year” from the gay Men’s Magazine.

This year Folsom Street was able to raise $350,066 despite all of its controversy. The charities include AIDS Emergency Fund, Dolores Street Community Services, Frameline Center, San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Stop Aids Project just to name a few.
"We are deeply humbled by this philanthropic achievement," said Andy Copper, president of the organization's board of directors. "We are so very grateful to our sponsors, beneficiaries, beverage partners and the leather/fetish community for its growing, generous support. This is absolutely a record-breaking year, and we are already working diligently on our upcoming 25th Folsom Street Fair in 2008."
Folsom Street Events is a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency that produces four annual fetish events: Bay of Pigs, Up Your Alley, Magnitude, and Folsom Street Fair. The organization's mission is to create volunteer-driven leather events that provide the adult alternative lifestyle community with safe venues for self-expression while emphasizing freedom, fun, frolic and fetish and raising funds to benefit charity.

Treasure Island is the newest video company to expand its line with “Built to Fuck”
Silicone lubricant. With the same name as its best selling DVD line this long lasting slippery lube is perfect for long hard fucks. Ironically it is condom safe (remember that the videos are just fantasy, always play safe) and with the easy pump makes it convenient to lube up.

Black Scorpion Entertainment, might be the new kid on the block, but comes out with a huge BANG in gay porn with “Dreams of Rafael and “Obsession of D.O.”. Both were hot selling DVDs (D.O. has a lot to do with that) so you know that “Hunger” has big shoes (you know what they say about big shoe) to fill and it does just that. Shot entirely on location in New York City, "Hunger" takes viewers on a culinary thrill ride that explores the magical, sexual mystery of what happens when fine food and sexual desire collide — from waiters and bartenders to sous chefs and luxury bathroom attendants, according to a representative.
A 2-disc set filled with four steaming sex scenes along with the climactic signature of Black Scorpion with a 11 man orgy. Also has behind the scenes footage with Rafael Alencar as our guide with bonus music CD with original composition from Dardo and remixed by Damegoodz. This really is a must have in any porn collection!
Joe Romero lost his fight with Cancer on Oct 30th and will be missed by many. Romero was one of the first gay Latin male stars and starred in more that 650 movies. He was also a songwriter and director. He released two CDs on his Motorock Records label and promoted himself as the “Shock Rock Porn Star” He retired from the adult industry in September 2006 with a career spanning more than 14 year due to cancer. According to friends, Romero's real legacy will be his generosity and humor. He volunteered for Paws LA, Tom of Finland Foundation and APLA and the last year of his life worked at a hospital spending his spare time as chairman for Manchester Aids Project. Gino Colbert who worked with Romero says” "He was truly one of the great actors: an enormously strong screen presence, masculine and very, very hot - and a hell of a nice guy. It was always a pleasure to work with him. I don't think he ever gave a bad performance. He loved being in movies, and the camera loved him.”
Falcons newest Exclusive was discovered dancing as a go-go boy at Faces nightclub in Sacramento during the Rainbow Festival. His first appearance will be in “Rough Play” from John Bruno due for release late Jan 08.
"I have wanted to work in erotica ever since I can remember, and I've always wanted to work for Falcon," Hawke said enthusiastically. "I'm going to bring the same energy to my sex scenes that I exude when I dance and hopefully do some amazing work. I knew I'd eventually be doing this sort of work, and I'm excited that I finally have the chance to do it!"
Falcon’s director of promotions Troy Prickett says "The minute I met TJ and saw him dance, I knew he'd be an amazing adult performer. His debut scene is incredibly hot, and he uses his big, eight-inch dick to literally smack Tyler Riggz down in a scene that will definitely have men talking about him in 2008."
Damn this boy is smokin’ hot and cant wait to see him in action!
He’s at it again; you love him or throw ice cubes at him. Lucas released a letter to the gay adult entertainment last week where he alleges that Raging Stallion Studios have given information out about his lawsuit over 2006 release Michael Lucas’ La Dolce Vita. Lucas original letter from last week is as follows:
This is a letter for friends and colleagues, for those who know me well and not so well, for those who agree with me on many issues and those who do not, for both supporters and opponents of mine.
It's been nearly a year since this baseless, pointless, frivolous lawsuit has been torturing me and my employees. Demanding hundreds of thousands of dollars, my accusers have on numerous occasions claimed that they know that my film made millions of dollars for me, citing a "very reliable source," that knows the industry from within. I viewed this as mere gossip, but my accusers chose to believe it, despite my repeated offers to let my accusers' accountants review our books and see the earnings of my films for themselves.
Under pressure from my lawyers, the "very reliable source" was revealed. This mysterious "source" that supposedly knows my business so well turns out to be none other than Raging Stallion. The relevant documentation can not yet be made public. But I knew anyway from other sources that Raging Stallion is inaccurately and maliciously representing that I am making millions of dollars in sales, including foreign sales, and accusing me of illegally duplicating Fellini's film in China. They are advising the party suing me not to trust me. The list of lies is long.
It was bad enough that, boiling from jealousy and hate, Raging Stallion, including its co-owner G.C. Slader, threw ice cubes at me while I was receiving my best picture award in 2006. But it was worse when Raging Stallion co-owner Chris Ward posted a nasty piece on his blog, analyzing the law suit against me in detail, predicting it would close my company. (Mr. Big Mouth's aims were clear to me when I read that). But maliciously to lie about my company's income to a third party that is suing me! To mislead the prosecution by lying about sales figures!
Let's face it; we in this business all know very well that one can not make millions with a safe-sex film with a foreign title, no matter how many awards the film might receive. We all know that these awards are not the Oscars! God, we know! We all know all of that so well, with the limited media coverage we receive for the awards and the little clubs/theaters in which the award ceremonies are held. They are important for the industry and for the industry only!
Of these "brave" boys of Raging Stallion I ask; why are you so consistently going after me? Is your business not keeping you happy? Are your finances that bad? Are your shameless, pathetically written press releases that useless? Or are you motivated to these petty, malicious actions by having lost the damned awards? Did it get to you so bad that you've made the most-nominated film in history into the most unprofitable one? With the money I have had to spend on the legal defense in this year alone, I could have made parts 3, 4 and 5.
It's not only money that the pooping horses at Raging Stallion have pushed me to waste. Hundreds of hours wasted in discoveries, attorney conference calls, depositions, court appearances; 2 of my office employees and I have been deposed for hours on end. That is not to mention the sleepless nights caused me by this, and the depression over the precious time that Raging Stallion has robbed me of spending with my mother who is dying of cancer.
I am apologizing in advance to industry journalists, company heads, accountants, sales people, distributors and others for the eventuality of my having to subpoena you in this regard in the future. But if that becomes necessary, the fault for it being necessary will rest squarely on Raging Stallion. It is Raging Stallion that has maliciously convinced a third party with no knowledge of our industry that in 2007 one can make millions of dollars with a porn film. I had no plans whatsoever for seeking such subpoenas before I gained knowledge of this shameful communication between Raging Stallion and the company suing me.
As for the law suit itself; there was no wrong doing on my part. Under the Constitution, I have a right to create a parody, and I had a right to call my film Michael Lucas's La Dolce Vita. But aided and abetted by Raging Stallion, the entity suing me is bringing a frivolous law suit against me. In my opinion this was the lowest of the low, even for Raging Stallion, but I do want to know your opinion. I thank you in advance for your support, as I believe there is a point in time when keeping silent becomes a fault and each of you can be stabbed in the back just like I was.
Raging Stallion had a response just about 4 hours later.
Michael Lucas, a New York pornographer, sent a general letter to the industry today blaming Raging Stallion Studios for a lawsuit between his company and the Fellini estate, the owner of La Dolce Vita. Lucas seems to think that Raging Stallion is somehow behind, or in some way supports, the party suing him for copyright violations. In rather vicious tone he lays the blame for his legal trouble at our feet. This is our clear, unambiguous, and final statement on these ludicrous charges: Raging Stallion has never provided any information to any attorneys for the Fellini estate. Raging Stallion has had no contact whatsoever with the Fellini estate or its representatives. Raging Stallion, its partners, and its employees do not even know the name of any attorney for the Fellini estate nor do we know who owns the Fellini estate. We do not know anyone connected in any way with the Fellini estate. We do not know how to contact them, nor do we desire to contact them on this or any other matter. The studio, its representatives, its employees, and its shareholders have never had any contact whatsoever with the Fellini estate on this or on any other matter. It is our hope that going forward Michael Lucas will keep his ongoing drama to himself and leave us out of it. We have nothing to do with it and all of us are baffled by the mention of our name in connection to this case.
It keeps going with Michael Lucas sending following rebuttal to the RSS press release that same night.
In response to Raging Stallion's lies: That is right, Raging Stallion did not contact the Fellini estate. No need for them to, as I never was sued by the Fellini estate. For Christ's sake, I never mentioned anything about the Fellini estate in my email earlier today. This is Raging Stallion's invention in order to find "legitimate" grounds for their lies. Let's make it clear once and for all: I am being sued by International Media Films, the company that claims to own the rights to the Fellini film. And that is the company which Raging Stallion had their communication with. A communication that I have. A communication that at this point is attorney-client privileged only. I promise I will make it public as soon as this pointless law suit is over. And this law suit wil be over soon, as the whole mess is heading straight to trail. Enough bullshit, Raging Stallion, you snitches. Your continuous lying to the entire industry is ridiculous and disrespectful, to say the least. Do you think everyone is that stupid? One thing is when Chris Ward lies that his new movie has real airplane crashes in it, or shit like that, but how naive is it to lie about documents that will be available for everyone to see?
Raging Stallion Released the following statement regarding Lucas’ rebuttal:
Raging Stallion has never had any contact with International Media
Films, or any party to this lawsuit whatsoever. In fact, when I wrote
my press release I did not even know who was suing Lucas Entertainment,
hence my use of the term "Fellini Estate." No one here at this
studio or anyone associated with our studio has had any communication
whatsoever with any party to the La Dolce Vita legal drama. I don't
know how much more clear I can be. Michael Lucas has no "secret"
communication because one does not exist.

What’s more surprising than a third season of Janice Dickinson Reality show is that it will feature Gay Porn Star Rodrigo De Carli. He worked for Chi Chi Larue under the name Claudio Martin and starred in Deceived, Raw Footage and Shot for Shot. According to LaRue, "We released him from his contract because he wanted to pursue his modeling career. He was fantastic [in adult performances]. "He's a beautiful man; he's stunning. He kind of looks like Ricky Martin." Dickinson show will begin to air Dec 4 on the Oxygen Channel.
