When it comes to priests and gay porn, it's hard to beat Mike Donner's 1996 classic Our Trespasses. Who can forget the cover image of sexy Drew Andrews in his priest's collar clutching his rosary beads and hunky Scott Baldwin? But writer-director Nica Noelle is undaunted as she takes on the gay clergy taboo in her first film for the new Icon Male studio. Forgive Me Father gives viewers a look inside the confessional booth, where naughty guys confess their gay sex secrets.
Comeback kid Nick Capra stars as a guilt-ridden teacher who falls in love with his younger (and shorter) student (Armond Rizzo, both pictured above and after the jump). "I'm honored to be in any project with Nica Noelle's name attached to it," Capra tells GayDemon exclusively. "I have respect for her aesthetics. And she's the only director I've worked with in 12 years in the industry who allows the performers to direct their own sex. This makes the work much more passionate and much less formulaic."
Also on board for Forgive Me Father is big-name (and big-dicked) talent such as Tommy Defendi, Trenton Ducati, Casey Tanner, Ty Roderick, Seth Santoro and Lance Hart (as a former priest). "I grew up very Catholic," Nica reveals in a statement, "and I've been to confession quite a bit, so I make it as authentic as possible." Noelle, who previously directed for Rock Candy Films, calls her Icon Male releases "some of my best work to date."
Montreal-based Icon Male is a subsidiary of Mile High Online, which predominantly produces straight product. The studio is calling Icon Male its "gay romance line," and upcoming titles include Forbidden Encounters (out now, starring Ty Roderick and Adam Russo), a World War II period piece titled Prisoners of War and Men Seeking Men.
