Cybersocket-Web-Awards-logo-artDept. of Self-Promotion: As Constant Readers know, GPTimes has been on something of an extended hiatus. This site began life as The Adams Report by JC Adams in January 1998 (!!) and took on various forms, and in various outlets, until it morphed into GPTimes in 2007; I just needed a break while I reassessed how to manage what I’ve built in a rapidly evolving industry. In any case, we’ve had an upsurge in traffic lately, which I attribute to a recent Cybersocket Web Awards nomination, our eighth consecutive citation. Mazel to those who voted for us. If you’re new to this page, I invite you to check out my second book Filthy Remarks: 444 Sex Quotes—physical stocks are dwindling but the Kindle version, for example, is always available and Amazon is now offering it for a mere $8.99—or my first tome Gay Porn Heroes: 100 Most Famous Porn Stars (more expensive, but well worth it). In the meantime, I’m active on the Twitter machine (see the link at left). CLICK HERE to vote in the Cybersocket awards and to check out the full spread of nominees. Faversham.

CockyBoys-Hanson-Matthews-kiss-horizCockyBoys-Hanson-Matthews-kissCockyBoys-Hanson-Matthews-water-absCute Boys Kissing: We resume this popular feature with Tayte Hanson, whom the camera just eats up, and adorable Justin Matthews via CockyBoys. “Both Tayte and Justin identify as mostly tops, however Tayte did mention in another CockyBoys scene that he would love to do a scene with boy-next-door Justin,” notes the promo text. ” ‘I know he’s a top,’ Tayte said in the interview. ‘But we’ll figure it out!’ And figure it out they did, because three months later the guys met in New York for the first time and hit it off immediately. Neither Tayte nor Justin has ever bottomed on camera before, so they thought it appropriate to break each other in with an equal-opportunity flip-fuck.” It’s nice to see people cooperating.

CockyBoys-Black-Santoro-sex-1Hot Links: News, gossip and other related items of interest from the far-flung corners of GayPornLand and beyond:
* Queerty gathered together stories of how Steven Daigle, Jesse Jackman, Michael Lucas and Christian Wilde came out as porn actors to their families. The story was spurred by Broke Straight Boys performer Paul Canon videotaping his own coming-out to his family, which went semi-viral this month after the studio posted it to their YouTube page. [Queerty]
* Yet another mainstream-media story clucking over the fact that women enjoy watching gay porn. It’s as perennial as the turning of the leaves. This one comes from the Telegraph in the U.K. and they actually admit that it’s not a new phenomenon. CockyBoys founder Jake Jaxson and director-cameraperson mr. Pam are quoted. “Many of the women I spoke to for this feature, told me that the pleasure of watching gay porn was both voyeuristic and educational, as well as learning what turns them on, it teaches them about men’s sexual desires,” notes the story. “If straight porn wants to appeal to the majority of women, it might do well to look at the gay adult industry.” Indeed. [The Telegraph]
* Comedian Jimmy Kimmel has a popular segment on his late-night talk show featuring celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves. Men.com has put their own spin on it by corralling my longtime crush Gabriel Clark plus Dirk Caber, Jimmy Fanz, Tom Faulk, Dato Foland, Colby Keller and Paddy O’Brian to read mean tweets. Mr. Keller good-naturedly laughs it off, but I think Mr. O’Brian’s reactions are the funniest (although I rather love Mr. Clark’s reaction to a tweet deriding him as a “cum dumpster”: “Thanks. That’s what I was going for.”) [Men.com: YouTube]

CockyBoys-Ricky-Roman-Felix-Warner-abs-kissCockyBoys-Ricky-Roman-Felix-Warner-sexHot Links: News, gossip and other related items of interest from the far-flung corners of GayPornLand and beyond:
* In case you missed the announcement, director-producer Steven Scarborough—a protege of Chuck Holmes—has retired from the industry after a storied 27-year run. His Hot House Entertainment label, founded in 1993, was absorbed into the Falcon Studios-Raging Stallion Studios fold, forming the largest all-male adult studio in the industry. The parent company is AEBN, for whom they, and VOD membership site NakedSword, form the gay division. [Hot House blog]
* The aforementioned Falcon-Raging Stallion-Hot House triad—a somewhat unwieldy title—has been reformed as Falcon Studios Group under the stewardship of Chris Ward. “Since Falcon has the most content, the most established brand and iconic name recognition, we thought it only fitting to call it the Falcon Studios Group,” said Mr. Ward. “Even then, fans and retailers can rest assured that each site, video line and brand will remain distinct and continue releasing the style and quality of content they expect from each individual entity within the Falcon Studios Group.” [XBIZ]
* Soon after the formation of the Falcon Studios Group came the news that Titan Media and Raging Stallion would share popular skin studs Hunter Marx and Shawn Wolfe as co-exclusives. This unique arrangement allows more opportunity for work and exposure than a single-studio contract could offer at this point. “While the concept of co-exclusives is something new, it makes perfect sense in the new business environment. We can ensure the very best performers in the industry work with the very best condom-only studios,” said Titan Media Vice President Keith Webb. “It’s a win-win for both the performers and the studios.” [Falcon Studios blog]
* Performer, mogul and activist Michael Lucas has been vocal in his support of Israel during the current Palestinian conflict. His advocacy continues to help him shatter the glass ceiling for porn performers. It’s fascinating to observe how his views supersede any squickiness the media might feel over his profession. The latest is an interview with YNet News and a laudatory profile in The Times of Israel (“A Zionist porn star shows his solidarity,” is the headline.) Mr. Lucas made a point of traveling to Israel as a tourist now, during the conflict. “Why? Partly to be with my people during a difficult period for them. But also because I want to help show that Israel is still a completely viable and enjoyable travel destination, even during times of conflict,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “Everyday life there goes on. I was in Israel during the Lebanon war. It was safe. And I know that I will be safe this week, even while the Israel Defense Forces are bravely fighting terrorists in Gaza.” [YNetNews and Times of Israel]
* Constant Readers are aware of my longstanding crush on Colby Keller—I’m certainly not alone in my admiration—and you may be aware our shaggy-haired, adorably bearish and artistically minded free-spirit successfully raised the funds to finance Big Shoe Adventure 1: Colby Does America… and Canada, too. He raised more than $45,000 via Indiegogo and nearly 1500 backers. Follow the link for this ambitious independent art-porn project. [Indiegogo]
* The Washington Post, no less, has weighed in on AB1576, a bill before the California State Senate that would legally mandate condoms in all porn production in the state. The article is titled, “How making actors wear condoms could kill California’s porn business.” As the article notes, voters approved a similar measure for Los Angeles County two years ago and the powers-that-be are still trying to figure out how to pay for it and enforce it. [WaPo online].
