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!
A legend returns...to Channel 1 Releasing, anyway! The studio and director Chi Chi LaRue have announced that superstar Johnny Hazzard is back in the C1R family. Hazzard, who previously appeared in scenes for Titan Media, Butch Dixon and Randy Blue after starting his career as a C1R exclusive in 2003, has taken a brief break from the big biz but is now expected to headline several titles for his home studio. "I've been away too long," Hazzard says. "I've learned a lot of new tricks that I can't wait to share with my fans." Hazzard recently lensed London Spunked in (where else!?) London with co-stars Issac Jones, Harley Everett, Marco Sessions, JP Dubois, Sam Barclay and newbies Taylor Scott and Leo Momenico. "Johnny is the perfect model," says LaRue (pictured below in man drag with Hazzard). "Not only is he a great performer, but he's a great friend and a pleasure to be around." Look for an early 2013 release. For more information, visit C1R.com.
Does newcomer Doug Acre look familiar to you? Channel 1 Releasing is taking credit for introducing the hung young buck to the world, but we've seen him before. In fact, he appeared in this film for Jet Set Men last summer. He's also done online work for College Dudes, Jake Cruise, Men.com and the defunct (?) AustinZane. But the studio still says that Doug is making his "adult feature debut" in Chi Chi LaRue's incestuous saga Fucked By Our Dads. They add that he is "reminiscent of classic Catalina Video performers like Kevin Williams and John Davenport." Anyone remember them either!? Oh well, who cares!? Acre is part of a five-man orgy in the Catalina release that is said to be "one of the hottest scenes in an already over-the-top film." He's described as "clean-cut with striking good looks and a super-nasty, filthy-talking dirty attitude with complete star quality." Well, the hung part is true anyway! Dads also features Brian Davilla, Mike DeMarko, Shay Michaels, Spencer Reed, Rex Roddick, Adam Russo, Alex Slater, Collin Stone and Mitch Vaughn. For more information, visit C1R.com.
Lord knows that there are plenty of ways to get your gay porn gossip these days (besides GayDemon, of course). But now, when you get tired of reading disreputable bloggers who simply write about their porn star friends, there's a new weekly show you can watch! Studly Eddie Stone has been knocking around the big biz for years. He debuted as a model in 2003, working for director Chi Chi LaRue in numerous movies as a Rascal Video exclusive (who can forget his scorching turn in When in Rome!?). After winning awards and being molded for his own dildo, Eddie returned to his native Canada, where he married well and got his own radio show in Toronto.
Now, 35-year-old Stone is back, hosting a weekly gay porn gossip show that gives his humorous and unique take on an industry he knows quite well. Each episode offers the inside scoop on that week's hottest news and gossip, whether it's a publicity-hungry porn star couple releasing an alleged sex tape together, the launch of a new surfer dude Web site or a compilation DVD from an overexposed reality star. Eddie even pokes fun at one of his old films (The Stone Age, which FabScout's Howard Andrew calls "the worst movie ever made!"). The best part is that we get to see Eddie's handsome mug before the cameras once again. Who knows? Maybe he'll do a future episode shirtless! You can find This Week in Porn on Eddie Stone's YouTube channel or watch the latest installment by clicking above.
Those CockyBoys are at it again! As if having a hot new movie coming out isn't enough (Project GoGoBoy looks like a crazy mashup of gay porn and reality TV that will either be really great or really annoying. Watch the trailer here and decide for yourself!), the twink superstars worked NYC Gay Pride and its numerous events for all they were worth.
Besides appearances at XL Nightclub's Boi Party (where they hung with wannabe porn star Chris Crocker) and Eastern Bloc (directrix Chi Chi LaRue spun the tunes) and a photo shoot with JD Ferguson, the models pressed the flesh at the online studio's booth (with TLA Video) at the PrideFest street fair. That's where we caught up with (feuding?!) porn stars Max Ryder and Jake Bass. Max was wearing some scary blue contacts (he told GayDemon they didn't hurt, but they sure looked painful!), and Jake was wearing a moody pout (top photo). New exclusive and old-timer Pierre Fitch was also on hand (second photo), though much more clothed. Seth Knight, Stephen Forest, Kennedy Carter, Bravo Delta and other porn stars rotated in and out of the booth throughout the afternoon, and at times, they even busted a move (below), all the while signing autographs and posing with starstruck fans.

It happens every year: The nominations for Chicago's own Grabby Awards have been announced! Even though it seems like everyone in the big biz is nominated (18 models are up for Performer of the Year!), the only nom we really care about is...ours! Yes, GayDemon is honored to join nine other highly esteemed industry sites to fight it out for Best Porn Blog. Cheers! Thanks a lot!
For those fans not familiar with the Grabbys, this is like the Golden Globes of gay porn. It's a chance for your favorite stars to get trashed, fall down (some fellow bloggers--ahem--do that too!) and accept an award here and there in between. There are 34 categories this year, including a couple of new ones, such as Manly Man and Best Cum Scene (what's that!?). Sponsored by Grab Magazine, the Grabby Awards are set for Saturday, May 28, at the Park West Theater in Chicago as part of the International Mr. Leather weekend. To view the complete list of nominees (including us!), click here.
It doesn't happen often, but once in a blue moon porn superstar Brent Everett bottoms. So that would make the latest film from director Chi Chi LaRue and her Rascal Video (via Channel 1 Releasing), Some Things Cum Up!, somewhat of an event for gay porn fans. The 28-year-old Canadian cutie has worked in the industry since 2003. After a short break, Everett returned in 2006 and has recently been an exclusive for C1R (mostly as a top in movies such as this). He also married his hot husband, Steve Peña, in 2008. And now, big-dicked Brent is taking one for the team from tattooed stud Dante Escobar. But besides this must-see scene, Cum Up! also features a poolside duo with an underwater double pop shot and a four-man orgy (watch for the runaway train fuck!). Also starring AJ Banks, Eddie Blake, Chad Davis, Cole Harvey, Connor Maguire and Mike Rivers. For more information, visit C1R.com. And to check out all things Brent, visit BrentEverett.com.
Think porn stars never read books? Well, this one wrote one! Porn superstar Gus Mattox, now retired and living as his literary alter ego, Tom Judson, has just released a collection of stories titled Laid Bare: Essays and Observations. The book focuses on the actor's rise from Broadway star (Cabaret, 42nd Street) to porn star (discovered by director Chi Chi LaRue one cold night in Minneapolis). In between, the multitalented singer, dancer and pianist writes music (for the mainstream movie Metropolitan), hustles at the Waldorf-Astoria, performs his autobiographical one-man show (Canned Ham) in New York, Los Angeles, Provincetown and across the country and even marries well (the "Moon River" essay tells a lovely tale of Tom and his late husband, Bruce). Judson retired Mattox in 2006 at age 45 (!), but only after appearing in numerous hit films, including COLT's Big Rig, Falcon's Through the Woods and Lucas Entertainment's award-winning Dangerous Liaisons, and taking GAYVN's coveted Performer of the Year award. Who said porn stars can't do it all!? A version of Laid Bare is available for the Kindle for only $2.99 via Amazon.com. For more information, visit TomJudson.com.
Sex clubs as a motif in porn films are kinda tired, but Channel 1 Releasing and director Chi Chi LaRue somehow make everything old new again in Cock Trap. The film follows smooth newcomer Russ Ryan (top photo) as he ventures into a highly stylized world of hot men and animalistic passion. The sex club and guys are adorned in striking red and/or black (there's even a red dildo and urinal!), making for visually appealing eye candy as cutie Ryan explores and discovers new things along the way. One thing he finds is C1R exclusive Brent Everett, who plugs hard-working Riley Price in a sweaty duo (below). Also featuring Cameron Marshall (second pic), Connor Maguire, Cameron Adams and Brant Dickson. This is glossy, arty gay porn that delivers all the grit and glamour that are a LaRue trademark. Cock Trap is available on DVD and VOD at C1R.com.
