The Hookies—already the eighth annual—is a glitzy affair soaked in ball sweat and freshly injected testosterone, tricked out in Andrew Christian jockstraps and seemingly every leather harness ever manufactured. Held across the street from me at The Out's BPM, the ceremony was preceded by a red carpet the size of a welcome mat...but unlike with hustlers, the small size made things all the more interesting.
The first person of note I spotted was the indescribably adorable Duncan Black, who has become one of porn's most famous bottoms and who is also, apparently, a well-peopled escort based in NYC. He was wearing a black shirt and jeans with a gray vest and a studded harness and was happy to pose for photos on and off the carpet. I'm pushing for a shoot with him, but will have to tangle with Cocky Boys first. Mega-watt smile and sweet as pie. As host Leslie Jordan would note later, "Precious!"
Several too-naked-for-this-blog pixxx are at my Work Unfriendly Tumblr, including a great shot of Duncan showing off his pride and joy.
I'm Mr. Open-Minded, but it's hard to shake my Midwestern-prude DNA, because while politically I believe it's unconstitutional to make renting one's body illegal, I feel that at present, being in that line of work seems to be pretty damaging to a large percentage of those who punch that time card. So whenever I saw a guy like Duncan—again, so cute!—my judgy, or at least protective, side was thinking, "Don't do this!" But my horny side was thinking, "OMG, where is the ATM machine, because he would be worth being late on a mortgage payment or three."
Rafael Alencar made a spirited carpet appearance, showmancing with bisexual female gay-porn directrix mr. Pam, who was conducting interviews on the carpet. He wound up riding her after giving an interview, all the while grasping his giant bulge in a manner that would not pass for discreet. I was reminded of what some mothers say when their little boys can't stop holding their pee-pees: "It's not gonna fall off!" But I think Rafael clutching his family jewels was a bit like wearing an accent brooch—it definitely drew the eye southward.
Mr. Canada Eli Henry (I know...woof x 10) and Tommy Defendi
The porn version of the Wolf Pack—Austin and Tyler—cut impressive figures on the carpet, sporting tattoos, muscles and matchy-matchy basketball jerseys. Tyler happily lowered his pants for Austin to grope the wares out back as the cameras flashed. You know, just like always happens at the Tonys.
