His first scene hasn't even come out yet, but David Benjamin is already an exclusive player in the gay porn industry. Just after last week's signing of Dario Beck, Falcon and Raging Stallion have announced a new deal with the 39-year-old go-go dancer and cam model. Benjamin, who's based in Washington, D.C., first caught our attention with this yet-to-be-released scene for Hot House. Then he started creating a stir with sexy pics on Twitter (@DavidBenjaminX) and on the box cover of Channel 1 Releasing's upcoming #Leather, directed by Chi Chi LaRue. But following a meeting at the Grabby Awards last May, Falcon and RSS have swooped in and now the bearded stud is making his studio debut in Crave, the fourth title in the Falcon Edge line.
In an exclusive statement to GayDemon, Benjamin says, "The opportunity to join some of the iconic names behind Falcon and Raging Stallion products is an honor. Having the chance to work alongside established stars like Shawn Wolfe and Boomer Banks and director Steve Cruz, to name a few, is a real privilege."
From what we hear, David has already filmed two new scenes for the Monster Bang imprint, and look for Crave on September 1. For more information, visit Falcon Studios.
When Jon Galt walked away from gay porn seven years ago, he was at the top of his game. Starting in 2000, the screen stud made more than 20 films as a Titan Men exclusive and later as a model for Falcon, Hot House and other major studios. So where did this gay porn superstar disappear to? GayDemon recently had the pleasure of talking to Galt to find out. And he just happens to be resuming his career, filming two new scenes with his boyfriend and fellow porn star Vic Rocco.
In his first interview in seven years, Galt told GayDemon that his decision to leave the industry was a conscious one. "I definitely didn't want to be one of those guys in porn who people were thinking, Sweet baby Jesus, is he still making movies?" Galt says with a laugh. He adds that he made a promise to himself that when he was no longer enjoying it, he would get out of the business. "When I left it was still fun for me," he says, "but I felt I had done all that I could do. My fans always tell me that when watching me they never felt it was acting or mechanical, and I wanted to stop before it became that way for me."
Even though he wasn't making movies, Galt says that he kept "a toe in the water" by posing for nudes in erotic art books for top photographers such as Tom Bianchi, Michael Alago and Charles Thomas Rogers. But he adds that he always missed the industry while away. "There was not a day that went by that I didn't miss it," he says. "I would get especially 'home sick' when fans would come up to me, seven years later, saying how much they love my work." At age 47, Galt is still tanned, toned and muscled (as you can see in these exclusive pics from his new shoot). He's also added a few new tattoos. He says that part of his return to movies is to prove that "you don't have to be a twentysomething to have an amazing body and physique." He says that fans should get ready for "a lot of new stuff to come from the 'daddy' version of Jon Galt."
Circuit queens, get out your white jumpsuits. This weekend kicks off White Party Palm Springs, and it happens to be the 25th anniversary of the annual gay event. The four-day gala has grown over the years and now brings close to 30,000 devotees to this desert town each spring. Creator Jeffrey Sanker says to expect bigger and better this year in honor of the silver anniversary. They've even announced that Carmen Electra has been dubbed "Queen of the White Party." It sounds like she won't be "singing" this year, but according to an interview with Palm Springs Life magazine, the Baywatch star will be changing costumes a lot!
Some of this year's events include the Addicted to White Underwear Party, where Chi Chi LaRue will be spinning in the Boudoir Lounge of the Renaissance host hotel, on Friday, April 25. Then, on Saturday, April 26, teen queen Ariana Grande headlines the White Party at the Palm Springs Convention Center, which will be transformed into a "unique dance environment" especially for the occasion. (Music superstars Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga and Mary J. Blige have performed in previous years.) Providing the beats, Bent Collective featuring DJ/producers Danny Verde and Steven Redant will be making their U.S. debut. Of course, with gays being gays, there's also the Climax Afterhours party at the Renaissance Hotel following the main event.
The weekend of fun culminates on Sunday, April 27, with the Circus Icon T-Dance at White Party Park, where you can ride two Ferris wheels and enjoy 15 minutes of synchronized fireworks. Sanker is also promising a "special surprise performer." If you haven't passed out by now, there's a closing party at the Renaissance that goes till 8 am! For more information, visit JeffreySanker.com.
And be sure to check out the video above in which a bunch of go-go boys dance around in white to a remix of a Cyndi Lauper classic. Can you spot the gay porn star!? We're also hearing that superstars Trenton Ducati and Adam Killian will pop up at various events throughout the weekend.
What does "omnisexual" mean to you? And is it a good thing? In the case of new Channel 1 Releasing exclusive Jason Phoenix, we'd say it's a very good thing. "Omnisexual" is how the studio is selling its latest hunky model. If you pay attention to Twitter, you've already seen numerous naked pictures of this handsome and hairy stud. But now Jason is making it official with several debut scenes.
C1R says that the 6-foot-3 (former?) Marine was discovered by industry icon Dirk Yates and will be appearing in his Frontal Assault 2 and Present Arms. Director Chi Chi LaRue is also in on the act, featuring this rising Phoenix in the next installment of her jail-themed Punished and Sucked Off in Weird Places. (Love the title! Who hasn't been!?) Yates says, "In the tradition of some of my finest discoveries, Glen Swan, Axel Garret and Dean Phoenix, Jason ranks among the best!" And this veteran knows talent!
So, what else can we expect from the tattooed all-American Phoenix? Again, if you're devoted to Twitter (follow him @MrJasonPhoenix), you recently saw some shots of Jason on set with another legend of the biz, Johnny Hazzard. So look for even more sex on film from this superstar-in-the-making! For more information, visit C1R.com.
Any time handsome Johnny Hazzard does a new scene...well, that's a good reason to write about him! British studio Men at Play has brought the American gay porn superstar back in a hot duo titled "Graffiti." In it, a formally dressed Johnny returns home to find a sexy street tough (Patrik) spray-painting the walls in his apartment building. Kids today! It only gets worse as the bearded tagger also paints Johnny's gorgeous suit and tie. Johnny winds up pinned against the wall as the vandal tells him that he did it all for the "attention." Once Hazzard hears that, he's happy to kiss and offer his cock to Patrik. He also eats his ass right there in the hallway. This leads to the kind of topping that only an industry veteran like Hazzard can deliver. It's always fun to watch Johnny work, especially in a role that goes against type. Remember, when he debuted eight years ago in Chi Chi LaRue's Wrong Side of the Tracks, he was the one playing the tattooed bad boy. Now he's all grown-up and looking better than ever. For more information, visit Men at Play.
There have been rumblings in recent weeks that Nick Capra was considering a return to the industry. Now GayDemon has learned exclusively that the Italian stud just shot two new scenes. We haven't heard much lately from Capra, who debuted in Chi Chi LaRue's Finish Me Off in 2002 and went on to appear in more than 60 films for most major studios and directors. But after four years away, the sexy superstar is ready to jump back in and has signed with Trenton Ducati's new modeling and talent agency. (The newlywed So You Think You Can Fuck contestant is also repping dreamy Mike DeMarko and Billy Santoro.) In addition, Nick is writing a book about his life. "I figured it's definitely more of a perk to read a cautionary autobiography about a current adult film star rather than a has-been," Capra tells us. "Wouldn't you say?"
Nick will mark his return to gay porn with a scene for Jake Cruise's Hot Dads Hot Lads site (which he says is fitting because Cruise was the last director he worked with before his retirement) and another for Mile High Media (a predominantly straight Canadian studio that is venturing into gay waters). "My co-star for the first scene was absolutely adorable," Capra says. "I can't even tell you the kid's stage name, but he's only 20 years old and his somewhat protective boyfriend came with him to the shoot. So that was a bit awkward!" (The model is pictured below on set with Nick.) The second scene is with veteran Jessie Colter, who Capra calls "a sweet guy with a hot delicious ass. Yum!" He adds that their duo wasn't "raunchy or dirty, but more passionate and intense."
Both scenes will be out shortly. In the meantime, Nick is working on that book, which he hopes will speak to fans, old and new. "I'm interested in reaching out to gay men who are suffering from relationship challenges, dad issues, body dysmorphia and addiction," Capra says. "Many gay men are dying from these issues and don't see a way out. I want them to know they're not alone, and hopefully inspire them with my own personal story." Nick says that story includes his "not-so-normal family environment, my coming out as a gay man, the drug world, how I became Nick Capra, many of my adventures as a gay porn star and international escort, my sobriety and enduring the suicide of the love of my life. You'll get all the darkness and all the light."
Nick currently lives in San Diego, where he attended classes for holistic studies and recently got his MT certification. He says that he's been living a mostly quiet, "normal life" and is now "more comfortable in his skin" than ever before. As for shifts in the big biz during his break, Capra says that he's "just catching up with the digital age" via Twitter and that the current popularity of barebacking is "not my deal. I think it's my responsibility to promote safe sex. You'll never see me in a penetration BB video." Read Nick's personal diary at PornStudBlog.com and find him on Twitter @nickcapra.
Directix Chi Chi LaRue is joining forces with GayHotMovies.com for an ambitious new online series. Sentenced is set to be presented in 12 exclusive webisodes and stars hairy hunk Mike DeMarko (above). "This has been one of my favorite projects to date," LaRue says. "The cast, sets and sex are stellar!" Well, with a group of sexy newcomers and porn star favorites including Alessandro Del Toro, Trenton Ducati and Billy Santoro, what would you expect? The series has an edgy, almost ethereal vibe to it, but the big selling point here is DeMarko's meaty horse cock. Too bad he only bottoms in two of the scenes we've watched. The first three episodes, "Cruising & Boozing," "Undressed & Undercover" and "Intense Interrogation," are live now and can be streamed on both C1R and GayHotMovies. The complete 12-episode series will be packaged into Rascal's three-part Sentenced, Punished and Released series. Stay tuned!
Sad news about porn star Bobby Williams has now been confirmed. The former Falcon exclusive was killed in a car accident on Sunday morning. A story on the Mass Live Web site reports that Williams was driving in his hometown of Holyoke, Massachusetts, when his car went off the road and hit a tree. Police say that Williams, who was ejected from the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was 31.
From 2003-2007, Williams starred in more than 30 films for numerous studios, including Raging Stallion, Titan Media and Studio 2000. Following his debut in Falcon's Drenched, he appeared in many hit titles, including In Too Deep, Through the Woods, Kept and Link, which was directed by Chi Chi LaRue, who tweeted, "It's so sad to hear when a person from your past that was your friend passes! RIP Bobby Williams! Sweet Dreams!"
The incident remains under investigation, and according to the Associated Press, an autopsy has been scheduled to determine the cause of the crash. Our condolences go out to Bobby's family and friends.
The fur really flies in the latest from Rascal Video and legendary director Chi Chi LaRue. Teddy Bear: A Hairy Tale features a group of especially hirsute models (though a couple barely pass with a few straggly chest hairs, but we're going to overlook that because they're hot!). Christopher Daniels leads the all-star cast as a single loser who cuddles up to his teddy bear one night after a disappointing blind date. The stuffed animal manages to turn him on in a bizarre opening solo. Meanwhile, Daniels' hot roomie Dirk Caber is getting pounded by beefy Alessandro Del Toro's uncut piece right next door. Neighbor Brad Kalvo gets into hair worship with cutie Trey Turner. And Channel 1 Releasing superstar Johnny Hazzard is so distracted by pool boy Josh Long (who has a major bath mat of torso fur!) that he bends over.
In the final scene, Christopher gets a plushy surprise when his teddy bear comes to life (!) in the form of CJ Madison in a red cap. Together they share an intense flip-flop fuck. This scene is a highlight for Daniels, who somehow manages to keep a straight face for his moments with the stuffed bear. But this is no joke: Teddy Bear is a must-see for serious fur fetishists.

Gay porn power couples may come and go, but Trenton Ducati and Tate Ryder are here to stay! The sexy duo, pictured above at the Golden Probe Awards in West Hollywood this week (photo courtesy @the_real_tball), recently sat down with Rod Steely of New York's Next Magazine to talk about the ups and downs (ins and outs!?) of their careers and relationship. The fun couple, who met on a shoot for Lucas Entertainment last year, told Steely that they enjoy their on-screen jobs, but Ryder adds, there are some things "that we leave out because if we give it all away to the audience, what do we have when we're at home?" Though Trent and Tate are open about their work together, which includes this scene for Hot House, go-go dancing and even escorting together, they say that they often trade off positions in real life. "I'm more versatile at home," Ryder says. "It's whoever's in the mood." But one thing they know is how the fans want to see Ducati, and that's on the bottom! "I'm cool that they like it," says Ducati, who is a former Titan Men exclusive. "I don't like to limit myself. I'm big and it shows that there's a gateway for someone taller and bigger to bottom." But in the end, the guys say that one of the secrets to their success came in the form of some advice from director and friend Chi Chi LaRue. She told them that it all comes down to maturity. Thankfully, these two pros have some!
