Pop goes the zipper was off the chain




The chant was don't be tardy for the party. They were right when I got there at around 10PM the place was seriously jumping and the boys were humping to the beat of course.Rob Romoni was working the red carpet and doing color commentary. DJ Chi Chi Larue was throwing down the beats and the crowd was loving it. When I got inside there were Rocco Giovanni and Josh Griffin both working it out on the dancer stage to the beats.
Chi Chi threw on some old school Michael Jackson and guess who jumped on the floor and busted his best MJ moves. None other than Wolf Hudson. Yes he can dance really really well. The king of kink might just be the king of the dance floor too and I even jumped out there too. Wolf is such a sweetheart when I introduced my self he gave me a big hug and thanked me for the kind and funny tweets I made to him.

There were so many people that I recognized that it felt surreal. All of the hottest guys in the gay porn industry were there. Lex Sabre, Adam Killian, Francois Sagat, Eddie Diaz, Ryan Raz, Austin Wilde, David Taylor, Jeremey Bilding, RJ Danvers, Paul Wagner, Scott Tanner and TJ Hawke and plenty more who I saw but did not get a chance to talk too.























The models were all stunning and Sister Roma is a total sweetheart. I meet so many models and director Steven Scarborough from hot house and Jack Shamama and Paul Bookstaber from the sword and Mr Pam is a gas. I also saw Tim Valente too. I met several models who I have tweeted with and they could not have been nicer. I also got to meet two of the coolest guys on twitter PornoBobbie and Jimyvr. They are to much fun to hang out with. All in all it was a great night of boy watching and chatting with some fun people.
I also want to give Jason Seacrest props for his invaluable assistance with this post. I posted all of the Pictures that I took so enjoy. I must also thank the Sisters of Perpetual indulgence for all of the great work that they do for the LBGT community. They were there during the darkest hours and the brightest as well. Thank you Sisters



This is my favorite picture with Jeremy bilding and Jimyvr. Jimyvr was babysitting a slightly overserved Jeremy and I took this picture and Jimmy is the one who looks drunk but in fact it was Jeremy who minutes ealier had his head between his legs. Go figure that Jeremy could be loaded and he looks like this. Don't you just hate him for being so gorgeous

I am so jealous of Rob Romoni that he got to hump Austin Wilde that I could just spit, well I actually I did spit. I apologized for that to the guy standing next to me. I kind of spit on him and he got off on it. Who knew that some guys like getting spit on


















I want to thank Raging Stallion Man of the year Austin Wilde for this picture of Ryan Raz making a deposit at BofA. I wonder how many guys are jealous of that ATM right now. By the way DNA experts are swabbing it right now to find out who left that sticky mess.


















I had a good laugh with Tim Valenti about the I beam club he used to manage and his home decorating that I helped with by helping with the lighting for it. I had a real nice conversation with R.J. Danvers who is such a sweetheart that he just makes you want to take him home with you.
David Taylor is like oh my god hot and a total sweet heart for posing for a second picture after I screwed up the first one. I also want to thank all of the fabulous looking models for being so nice to allow me to chat and take their pictures. I am no photographer by any stretch of the imagination and the fact that all of these pictures came out so good is a true testament to all of the subjects unnatural beauty. Chi Chi's picture is courtesy of Marques Daniel's photos
I also must congratulate David Taylor and Austin Wilde on being voted Raging Stallion's men of the year. Both of them are known for making other things rage besides Stallions if you get my drift.

"AN OPEN LETTER REGARDING TESTING AND CONDOM USAGE"

AN OPEN LETTER REGARDING TESTING AND CONDOM USAGE

I have said all along what my opinion on bareback porn is and if there was some sort of way to protect the model I would not have a issue with it. Yet the industry thinks that just because they advocate the use of a condom that they are not promoting unsafe sex paractices. The real truth is they are, don't be fooled a condom will protect you to a degree but the knowledge of knowing your viral status will protect you and your partner. So get tested and know you are truly safe. this open letter was Posted and then removed. I wonder why, could it be that it slaps the gay porn industry in they're collective mouth with the truth of the hypocrisy that they use?

Posted on 17. Sep, 2009 by Kyle Majors in Blogroll, Gay Porn Updates

As you may know, California is the porn production capital of the world. Recently, Cal OSHA and the California Legislature have begun to take a serious look at porn producers’ practices regarding STD testing and mandatory condom usage.
Yesterday a major gay porn blog posted an article claiming that the gay adult industry is rallying to “wage war” to stop the California government from requiring STD testing on porn sets. The article suggested that the industry is united on this, and that such a requirement would cripple bareback production and drive everyone’s production costs through the roof. I replied to the article suggesting that it was one-sided, pointing out that CockyBoys.com requires AIM testing AND condom usage, and suggesting that anything less is unacceptable.


The blog pulled the original article, stating that a revised article is forthcoming. The blog also removed my commentary. The gay adult industry is absolutely not united in opposition to AIM testing and condom usage. Having been silent in the public debate, and having had my post removed yesterday, I decided to go on the record in my own blog and other blogs who find the topic of interest.

CockyBoys has been AIM testing almost since we started AND requiring condom usage. We pay for the AIM tests, not the models. And, we are not alone. Many web-based studios have required testing and condom usage for a long time. Bait Bus, Randyblue, NextDoorMale and Suite 703 require AIM testing. Sean Cody and Collegedudes247 require HIV testing.
Testing is NOT prohibitively expensive, except maybe for studios that pay models crap to begin with. It’s especially a meaningless cost if you are shooting the model in more than one scene and amortize the cost across those scenes. The AIM folks will work with you to find local testing centers near the models so out-of-state models don’t have to come to California to be tested. The problem is that there is a general sense that profits come before models. My God we have an obligation to models – to protect them – not expose them to unnecessary risks. If a studio really can’t afford testing, they probably shouldn’t be in the business.


Further, many “condom only” studios like to pretend that they have no responsibility because condoms are used. A lot of condom studios give models a false sense of security spreading myths about the level of safety on their sets. Condoms break and have a statistical percentage of failure. One studio boasts that it not only uses condoms, but also inspects models before a shoot for any visible signs of STDs. What a crock of bull – as if the naked eye can detect STDs.
There is also the issue of “facials” where one model cums in another’s mouth. Although less risky than bareback sex, oral cum shots pose certain risks. A number of studios who use condoms, but don’t test, then turn around and shoot oral cum shots. They usually give the model some line about how saliva is acidic and oral sex is safe. That’s simply not true. If the ejaculating model is infected with an STD, the receiving model’s mouth is potentially vulnerable. This is especially true if the ejaculating model has a cut on his penis, has blood in his semen, or has a high viral count, or the receiving model has a cut in his mouth, a bleeding or receding gum line, recently brushed his teeth, or is “deepthroating.” Even with testing oral cum shots raise certain moral questions for me, but without testing they are clearly irresponsible and unsafe.


I am sick and tired of the DVD and bareback guys whining over this issue. This is a situation where the industry should have banded together and self-regulated. There might have been some means of establishing “truly informed consent” that could co-exist with testing. That didn’t happen. Now the only state in the Union where producing porn is clearly legal is considering government regulation – it’s policing an area where the industry failed to police itself. CockyBoys approached a couple of the pro-condom DVD studios a year or so ago about creating an industry trade association and we were privately told to “not rock the boat” over bareback content. Now the government is stepping in, and frankly, it’s about time.
Condoms are a “must.” Bareback has no place at all in legalized porn production in my opinion. In an insightful piece written for TheSword.com entitled, “Pornstars to Producers: Condoms Not Enough,” the author highlights models’ genuine concerns over the risks and the general lack of communication by studios regarding potential STD exposures. The article states that 30% of gay adult models are HIV positive. I suspect that number may be higher viewed on a studio-by-studio basis. In that light, bareback studios are downright irresponsible. There is NO REASON to permit bareback production. It presents an unacceptable degree of risk rising to a level of reckless endangerment in my view.


I recently read a quote from a bareback producer stating two models could cost three hundred dollars or more to get tested. The producer said most models don’t have the money so they’re not going to pay for it. Are you kidding me? The producer should pay for it. $150 per model is what we are talking about? So let’s say “fuck it,” not pay the $150, have them shoot bareback and roll the dice? Interestingly enough if you google the same producer you find claims from a model that the producer pressured the model to do bareback work (even though the producer also shoots condom scenes).

With power comes responsibility. Models do porn principally because they need the money. I can pull out my check book, and if the number is big enough I can make just about anyone do just about anything. Could I give our models a bunch of bullshit about how testing minimizes the risks, write them a check, and get them to do bareback? Yes, I probably could for many. But they wouldn’t be doing it because they wanted to, or because they really feel comfortable, they would be doing it because they need the money.


Here’s where the “free will” people chime in. It’s suddenly all about models’ rights and the models’ ability to make their own decisions. This is probably the only time you will hear studios advocate models’ rights, so listen up. The idea is that models are at least 18 years of age, and are informed adults. They have the right to make their own decisions regarding their health. They have the right to control their own bodies. This is America damn it – who is the government to regulate what we can do with our bodies? Well this argument is so silly it only merits addressing because so many people toss it about. The fact is that the government regulates what we can do with our bodies all the time, principally in an effort to stop us from doing something stupid in the name of money. Selling blood and semen is legal in most states. Selling kidneys isn’t. Prostitution is legal in Nevada on a county by county basis. Most states think prostitution is a bad idea. There are tons of examples where the government protects us from doing something potentially dangerous for money. If you can’t sell a kidney or a lung for money, it seems to me you shouldn’t be able to engage in unsafe sex for money either. The model is not only endangering his health, but the model in question almost certainly is without health insurance. When he gets sick he’ll probably be a burden on the state as well.


There are at least two primary reasons to oppose bareback porn: the health risks, and the message it sends. I’ve already discussed the obvious health risks to models. The “message” point is more subtle. Bareback porn arguably sends a message that bareback sex is “ok” or “safe.” The idea is that bareback porn encourages others to engage in unsafe sex. This argument not only indicts bareback producers, but also distributors of bareback content and “pre-condom” content. That’s right; if you find the “social message” argument compelling, you have to condemn the “pre-condom” companies too. It’s not about when the content was produced, it’s about the social message it sends. Personally I’m less moved by this argument, as model safety is my primary motivating factor. However, the argument is not without merit.


Finally there’s the argument that if California adopts regulations on porn producers, production companies will move to another state and California will lose hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue. Producers informed on the law governing adult entertainment production know that California has more favorable laws than any other state. However, if California’s actions pose a real risk of state flight by producers, then it’s an argument for regulation at the federal level. As opposed to allowing producers to “state shop” for states that don’t regulate, perhaps the federal government should adopt national regulations. Instead of devoting so much energy to 2257, maybe the feds should take a close look at bareback porn and the benefits of condoms and testing.


The bottom line is this. Neither condoms nor testing is enough. Condoms break, and HIV exposure takes 9 to 11 days to show up even in AIM HIV tests. Testing combined with latex is the only morally acceptable solution. We are asking guys to have sex on camera for money. The least we can do is foot the bill (less than the cost of a decent dinner) to test. As for condom usage, well if you don’t see the health benefits of that by this point….nothing I say in closing will convince you. This is one area where the models have to come before profits. If it takes the government stepping in to force the matter, then so be it.
Thanks for listening. Be well.
