A Tampa federal jury that watched more than eight hours of graphic and violent pornography in court decided that the movies violated community standards for decency.
Jurors on Thursday convicted the producer, Paul Little, of 10 counts of selling obscene material on the Internet and 10 counts of shipping it to Tampa in the mail.
The 51-year-old Little _ who calls himself Max Hardcore _ produced and starred in the films. They included scenes of urinating, vomiting and violently dominating women.
Little's attorneys argued that the films were covered by the First Amendment. They vowed to appeal.
Critics of obscenity cases question the federal government's decision to file these charges, especially considering the defining case law is 35 years old and was on shaky legal ground to begin with.
Federal obscenity law requires jurors to determine whether the material is patently offensive to the average person based on community standards. In the age of the Internet, however, a community's standards have become more difficult, if not impossible, to define.
The conference, called "Love Won Out" and sponsored by the conservative Colorado-based Christian organization Focus on the Family, has sparked controversy and outrage with several billboards in Orlando and other cities that host the traveling event. The billboards declare: "I Questioned Homosexuality and discovered love won out." The group's message is that change is possible.
"For gays, this is the same as saying you don't have to be black, you don't have to be Jewish," said Wayne Besen, executive director of TruthWinsOut.org, a Brooklyn-based gay advocacy group. "They represent us as broken and incomplete people."
Protesters, organized by Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians and Gays, will meet outside First Presbyterian Church in Orlando, where organizers say the conference is expected to draw about 500 participants. The conference coincides with Gay Days, which annually attracts thousands of gays to Orlando and Disney World.
Make sure to fight back this week and be proud of gayness and let it all hang out. You Go Girllll... snap!
Gage Weston and Ricky Parks from Colt Studio to perform live and nightspot Club Universe for Gay Pride Festivities at Club Universe. The party begins at 9:30 p.m. PT June 28.

This morning, gay production company Raging Stallion Studios filed suit against Drake's for nonpayment of bills some more than a year old.
“This is becoming a more and more common problem as economic times worsen. We at Raging Stallion, however, will not be left holding the bag,” Chris Ward Owner of Raging Stallion continued. “We intend to collect each and every dollar owed to us and stores will quickly learn that by refusing to pay they will incur significant legal debt and still have to pay us in the end anyway. The choice is theirs. As for Drakes, we will aggressively pursue them until our debt is satisfied, even if it means seizing assets."
Looks like the Economical slow down is going to hit all kinds of business.

Long before Craig became a household word, the website CruisingForSex.com established itself as a mainstay of the online cruising scene. When the Craig scandal broke, mainstream media couldn't get enough interview time with the site's founder, Keith Griffith. (Craig, by the way, continues to maintain he is not now, nor has he ever been, gay, despite a subsequent rush of alleged past liaisons into the limelight to declare their relationships with the senator.)
To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Craig's "coming out party," CruisingForSex All Boys Distribution have released the first in a new video line also called Cruising for Sex. Entitled Cruisemaster Road Trip 1. This 80-minute video, is the first in a projected series of tributes to public sex venues across America. In the first half hour, Joe Raven and Brent Zima meet on a trail in the District of Columbia's Rock Creek Park, suck and fuck in the woods, and repair to a hotel room for a capably directed sexual workout. The middle twenty minutes, shot amid the glory holes of an unnamed L.A. sex club, in a bedroom, and in a bathroom. In "Fuckin' Buffet," the third and best segment, two conventioneers in coats and ties pick up Tony Serrano in front of Philadelphia's City Center Gym and take him back to their hotel.
Well… I don’t know if it taste like candy, but the all natural shake mix safely and effectively neutralized the salty bitter taste of semen. Semenex was featured on Playboys Radio’s “Night Calls” with host Christy Canyon and Vanessa Blue. Topco Sales executives explained how they first conceived the product and how Topco became the exclusive manufacturer by utilizing its FDA registered facility to take Semenx to the next level.
Topco Sales’ Liz Plascencia said that Semenx sales have surpassed expectations.
“We're seeing more and more distributors stocking up to keep up with demand,” Plascencia said. “At this rate, Semenex could become one of Topco Sales' best sellers before long."
Who knew that so many men like asparagus and had “funky spunky”

Patty Sheehan, an Orlando city commissioner, is also a member of the gay community. She said what started in 1991 as a one-day event at Walt Disney World has come a long way.
"I do here proclaim the week of June 2, 2008, as Gay Days in the city of Orlando,” said Sheehan. "I can remember as a young person looking out on the crowd of red shirts, like the one I'm wearing now, and feeling so incredibly empowered, so I think that's really what the message is about."
Although there are fewer protests than in the past, this year's event will not go unopposed. The Evangelical group called Love Won Out plans to preach the anti-gay message at a conference in Orlando on Saturday.
"We want them to know there's hope. Change is possible. You're not born gay," said a member of the evangelical group.
More than 50 events are planned throughout the week. This includes a film festival and free HIV testing. Saturday is the official Gay Day at Disney's Magic Kingdom.

"California Secretary of State Debra Bowen says a random check of signatures submitted by the measure's sponsors showed that they had gathered enough for it to be put to voters. The measure would amend the state constitution to define marriage as a union 'between a man and a woman.' If it is approved by a majority of voters on Nov. 4, it would overturn the recent California Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in the state."
California will begin issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples on June 17th so even if the ban goes in effect their could be thousands of married couples that will be legally married and in legal limbo. It is unclear whether they would be nullified if or as some legal scholars have said the Supreme Court might get called on again to settle that question. So it looks like the fight has just begun.
"They didn't want us in it at all," member Mitch Sylvester told 'Local Today's 6 News.' "I don't know if they let us in to relieve some pressure that they got put on them by media and other influences last year."
Last year, the committee banned them from participating at all, saying they wanted the parade to show the conservative, religious and family values of the area. Some said committee members were even circling around; making sure their float met the committee's standards.
The float participated in the parade without incident. Maybe next year they can ad some Drag Queens after all, Gay’s know their parades!

We all know the ad with the goofy “Smiling Bob” selling the male enhancement product Enzyte. He may not be smiling so much these days. Berkeley Premium Natraceuticals, the company that distributes the product, is considering massive changes in the wake of its founder's conviction on charges the company bilked consumers out of $100 million by employing misleading ads, manipulating credit card transactions and refusing to cancel orders or accept returns.
The six-week trial - which saw founder and president Steve Warshak and several other BPN executives, including Warshak's mother, fall on charges that included conspiracy, bank fraud and money laundering - ended in February. The guilty parties are scheduled to be sentenced in August.In the meantime, BPN says it's looking for a new image. Changes may include a new name for the company and new concepts for its pitches. "Smiling Bob" may have to go."With innovative marketing, customer loyalty and demand, and the continued commitment of its employees, vendors and retail partners, Berkeley will get back to the $200-million-per-year company it used to be," the company said in a statement released last week.
As for Warshak and the other defendants, they have forfeited more than $33 million in assets so far. In addition, Warshak faces as many as 20 years in prison.
Athletic Model Guild, the longest continuously operating gay porn studio in the world, announced the release of two new wrestling titles from their archives today.

From off camera, the voice of the studio’s founder, Bob Mizer, can be heard directing and cheering on the boys.
