New Release Desk: Let’s kick off 2017 with a quick look at a couple of recent skinflicks. First up is HIS HOT BROTHER IN LAW from Icon Male and Nica Noelle. Newcomer Calvin Banks — puppyishly adorable with brown curly locks — steals the show with a sweaty romp costarring Billy Santoro, although Griffin Barrows is one to watch. CLICK HERE to read the review. Then there’s WILD WEEKEND 2 from Falcon Studios and Tony Demarco. All four match-ups are sizzlers. But Ryan Rose and Wesley Woods (crushing hard on this guy) practically devour each other. As I note in the review, “It doesn’t get much more gloriously gay than two handsome, shirtless studs passionately kissing with a billowing pride flag and the famed Castro Theatre in the background.” CLICK HERE for the full review.

Have you ever been more glad to see the back end of a year like goddamn 2016? Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya. And Happy New Year to every single Constant Reader. Here’s to a brighter, more prosperous 2017.

screen-shot-2016-11-27-at-7-22-32-amDept. of Self-Promotion: If you follow GPTimes on the Twitter machine, you know I’ve been crowing a bit about Gay Porn Heroes: 100 Most Famous Porn Stars becoming an Amazon bestseller five years after its publication (the sub-category chart was “Study of Pornography”). Thank you most sincerely for that. It rose as high as no. 3 and it’s been bouncing around the Top 100 ever since. We cracked the Top 10 a second time at no. 10 and it would be a kick to top — no pun intended — that chart and kick out, however briefly, the anti-porn tomes that regularly park in the top slot. If you’ve got some holiday bucks or gift cards burning a hole in your pocket, Gay Porn Heroes is on sale for under ten bucks (and the e-book version of Filthy Remarks has been marked down to under one measly buck). Thank you!

New Release Desk: This morning, two recent blue movie reviews for XBIZ. First up, FRESHMEN 3: THE HUNGARIAN EDITION from BelAmi and featuring Jean-Luc Bisset, Raphael Nyon and Nino Valens; the latter’s sexplay with Adam Archuleta culminates in a gusher of a cumshot and Archuletta’s confident assessment that young buck Valens needs no further instruction. CLICK HERE to read that review. Then we have FOOTBALL HERO 2 from Icon Male and director Nica Noelle. No real exploration of football gear, unfortunately, but strong older/younger guy sexplay and cover stud Ethan Slade is eye-catching. CLICK HERE for that write-up.
