cockyboys-karter-aradHot Links: News and gossip from the far-flung corners of GayPornLand:
* Here are the nominees for the 2017 XBIZ Awards. The best-picture nominated studios are BelAmi, Men.com, Raging Stallion Studios and multi-nominated CockyBoys (twice), NakedSword Originals (twice) and TitanMen (three times): (XBIZ).
* A ’90s-era photo of Brad Patton went viral when people confused him with — ugh — Mike Pence (Queerty)
* Silly click-bait listicle about “absurd precedents” set by gay porn. Same-old, same-old, if you don’t want to click the link (gay-for-pay is fake, porn sex isn’t real-life sex, etc. etc.): (Gay Star News).
* “Considering the incredibly low-budget look of their Pokémon Go parody, Men.com seems to have actually invested some money into Star Trek‘s costumes, set, and even special effects — they certainly didn’t invest any into acting or audio equipment.” (Unicorn Booty)

dvd-out-titan-jackmandvd-x-men-men-com-keller-obrienNew Release Desk: Voting continues until December 1st for the Cybersocket Web Awards, where we are among the nominees for Best Porn Blog or Review Site. Towards that end, here’s a recent review as well as a corker you may have missed from earlier this summer. OUT! is a well-produced and quite erotic winner from director Jasun Mark and Titan Media. That’s Jesse Jackman, who also co-wrote the script, on the DVD insert. His sexplay with the gorgeous, rugged Dallas Steele is a real keeper: CLICK HERE to read the review. Then there’s X-MEN: A GAY XXX PARODY via Men.com, which doesn’t satirize anything, but it does feature a very well-cast Colby Keller as Wolverine and a sinewy, glowering Paddy O’Brian as a horned-up Magneto. CLICK HERE for that review.

dvd-falcon-between-sheets-krossdvd-nakedsword-berkeleyNew Release Desk: Voting is underway — ugh, it’s painful to talk about voting right now — for another few weeks for the Cybersocket Web Awards, where we are among a large group of 31 contenders for Best Porn Blog or Review Site. Along those lines, let’s catch up on some reviews I never got around to posting. How about that cover of BETWEEN THE SHEETS for Falcon Studios? Man, the face on Sebastian Kross! His fuck session with Andrea Suarez is quite good; another scorcher is Sean Zevran with Zander Cole. Rising star Jack Hunter also makes another notable appearance. This is a good one if you’re into fit guys in tight white briefs. CLICK HERE for that review. Then we have BERKELEY via NakedSword Originals and mr. Pam, with some of the best sex of the year, including a deeply passionate, multi-climax and romantic pairing between singly named Elijah, who is Jewish, and his new Palestinian roommate, Ty Royal. There’s also another terrific Brenner Bolton appearance (a flipp-fuck shot on location at Steamworks opposite Mike Maverick). CLICK HERE for that review.

dvd-awv-florida-erection-2000Election Day Sexpic: Anyone else remember this Election Day-themed sexpic from Wash West (using his sometime moniker “Bud Light“)? FLORIDA ERECTION from All Worlds Video with handsome slab of beefcake Rick Ritter (as “Al Bore”!) alongside Ryan Chandler, Anthony Cox, Tanner Hayes, Jason Nichols, Brandon James, Tuck Johnson (whatever happened to him, anyway?), Dillon Pierce, Enrico Vega. That was all the way back in 2000. Gah. That “Nobody Likes Bush!” tagline is one for the ages.

dvd-titan-taxman-cumeth-benjamin-ramzidvd-nakedsword-infamous-rose-diggsNew Release Desk: As you know, we are a Cybersocket Web Awards nominee for Best Porn Blog or Review Site. Here’s a peek at several recent reviews for XBIZ (click the “New Release Desk” tag at left for more). There’s the cleverly titled TAXMAN CUMETH via TitanMen and director Jasun Mark (I’m really crushing on David Benjamin right now): CLICK HERE. And FUCK YOU, I’M INFAMOUS from NakedSword Originals and director mr. Pam. While all of the sexplay is quite good, the intense hammer-and-tongs fuck session between Ryan Rose and Draven Torres is fantastic. CLICK HERE for that review.

dvd-titan-blueprint-beckhamdvd-channel-one-buff-scruffNew Release Desk: Voting is underway for the 17th Annual Cybersocket Web Awards, where GPTimes is in contention for Best Porn Blog or Review Site. Along those lines, here are links to some recent reviews for XBIZ. First is BLUEPRINT from TitanMen and director Jasun Mark, who has been on a roll lately. This one also features more of the brawny, beautiful Bruce Beckham in his return to the biz, as well as my longtime crush Dirk Caber (paired with dreamy Adam Ramzi): CLICK HERE to read it. Then we have BUFF & SCRUFF via Chi Chi LaRue and Channel 1 Releasing, which also features Mr. Beckham (with an exceedingly turned-on Wesley Woods), a humdinger of a match-up with sexy ginger Bennett Anthony and Spencer Whitman and the underrated Brendan Patrick sucking off (among other things) thick-cocked Tex Davidson. Good stuff. Really a pleasure to watch guys who are truly enjoying each other and not just going through the motions. CLICK HERE to read that review.
