My Oral (Wink) History Of PLAYGIRL Is Finally Here! Comments (0)

It was a massive undertaking a year in the making, but my oral history of the sort of late (it could still publish, still has a site), often great Playgirl Magazine is here — it pubbed today at Esquire.com, a wonderful placement for me.

It would mean a lot to me if you would click here and visit the story and comment positively if you like it.

I did about 70 interviews, so the amount necessarily left out is staggering — let's just say this long piece is actually only the tip of the penis.

I especially loved the stories of the star models, like Lorenzo Lamas and Christopher Atkins and the fabulous George Maharis, who I bet is still hot as he approaches 90, as well as the stories of the non-famous men, who didn't necessarily know what they were getting into back in the day.

Thanks in advance for reading and sharing.

 
Deep Inside The 1st Annual Str8UpGayPorn Awards! Comments (0)

As I blogged some time ago, I was honored to be asked to participate as one of the judges in the first-ever Str8UpGayPorn Awards.

Complete List of Winners Here! (Work Unfriendly)

I consume porn at least as much as the next gay man, but I had not watched a full gay-porn movie since, oh ... Big Guns? I took my job very seriously and watched every nominated movie and performance, and was pleasantly surprised that most of the nominees for which or whom I voted won.

The event was not without controversy. Some in the porn industry complain that Str8UpGayPorn.com's editor, IMG_5813_newthe outspoken Zachary Sire (pictured, showing his own legit surprise at who we judges chose), is doing more harm than good. I think that while I am not aware of the truth behind every spat, Sire is simply extremely well-informed, not afraid to shine a spotlight on things some performers would rather he didn't (Twitter feuds, arrests) and has a taste level that demands porn productions look good and accomplish what they should without cheating the viewers.

A mini-controversy from the Michael Lucas camp didn't work, so the announced hostess, Sandra Bernhard, showed up as promised, as did a healthy number of faces from porn's who's who.

I arrived early to cover the carpet, watching porn vet Bruce Beckham and the delightful mr. Pam interview the X-rated glitterati before the photogs, including myself, would line them up for posed pics.

Most of the guys in gay porn (the gay ones!) are sweet, friendly, bubbly types who enjoy attention, which makes for great subjects and very few unpleasant exchanges. I was maybe a little too excited to see some of my favorites in the flesh, not least of which a generous helping of Bel Ami boys (including too-stunning-for-words Hoyt Kogan), enough Helix boys to fill a playground (why is Kyle Ross so adorable?), a flock of Cocky Boys (Carter Dane, Taylor Reign, possibly others who rhyme) and porn legends like Chi Chi LaRue, Diesel Washington and Brent Corrigan with beau JJ Knight.

One thing I found charming was how worried the Bel Ami boys — in prom-style tuxes — were about looking sweaty on the red carpet. I did some party shots they vastly preferred, which was hard to take seriously considering they look like this:

IMG_5793_newI love to Hoyt you ...

IMG_5772_newWill Wikle is one big brother!

IMG_5788_newColby Keller was not letting go.

All the models were only to happy to pose again and again. The only NO, PLEASE! I got all nice was when I mistook a caiter waiter for a porn god, which, if we're being honest, is not a hard mistake to make.

IMG_5801_newLiam Riley & friend till the end

The show started a little late, but went off without any serious glitches. Bernhard was a hoot, completely unruffled by any missed cues or other minor bumps in the road. This was kind of her attitude:

GiphyLet's not take this too seriously, kids!

She was professional, gave a funny opening monologue, was totally game and also gave a great pep talk about how people who do porn are at the forefront of living free and authentic lives. She called Shangela Shan-GELLA, like Frank Langella, but she also happily posed for pictures off to the side of the stage and shared a great story about how, in the '70s, she was in love with a famous drag queen. “She was my boyfriend,” she cracked.

As controversial a site as Str8UpGayPorn.com is, the show was fairly drama-free. Diesel Washington, saved for the end, did point out that the room was very white, but he also did it in a way that was both firm and yet not accusatory, and he still participated. Not just participated — he wore a crazy outfit and brought his mom! 

All that, and he's super nice and accomodating with the fans.

Check out more snippets from the ceremony here, including the double-Helix makeout sesh:

After the awards (gorgeous, crystal trophies) were all handed out, I was able to chat up some of the boys and congratulate them before my date and I headed up to the after-party on the roof. It was steamy good fun for all with no nudity.

Hey — they gave at the office.

Really, Zach should be proud of how well his event came off, and it will likely only get better over the years. I know already from talking with them that the winners were duly psyched to have been chosen.

Circus Of Books: The Final Chapter Comments (0)

The famous, infamous, charmingly smutty Circus of Books (formerly Book Circus) on the corner of Santa Cowboyblueboy2 Monica and La Jolla in WeHo is closing after 57 years in business.

The adult bookstore had something for everything, if by something we're talking about porn, and if by everyone we're talking about gay guys. (There's straight porn, too.)

I love this place, which will apparently stay open for one more Christmas before it vanishes.

One of the owners, Barry Mason — who owns the place with his wife, Karen — told WeHo Times:

“Book Circus and Universal News on Las Palmas and Hollywood Boulevard each took 600 copies of the gay Blueboy magazine when it first came out,” said Mr. Mason. “I would load my truck for these two stops. Guys would be waiting for us at the door. They’d come out and help me bring them in. They’d rip open the box and buy them fresh out of the box. I wouldn’t even do done unloading them and they were already sold. Blueboy was the first mainstream gay magazine. It was slick. The guys loved it.”

If you're under 30, he's talking about printed magazines of pornography for which people paid money.

RIP, Circus of Books!

Pride Month: What Was A Nice Boy Like Jack Wrangler Doing? Comments (0)

JACK-WRANGLERJack was what Harvey Levin and  Ryan Seacrest's baby would grow up to look like.

Jack Wrangler aka John Robert Stillman (1946-2009) was one blond adonis in the gay-porn Scan (and straight-porn!) industry about whom a lot is known, primarily because he survived long enough to leave the industry and move into other fields, partly because he was a self-promoting entertainer and partly because he actually published a tell-all autobiography, The Jack Wrangler Story, or What's a Nice Boy Like You Doing? (St. Martin's, 1984).

The at-least-bisexual if not actually gay Wrangler also moved into a much-gossiped-about relationship with legendary chanteuse Margaret Whiting (1924-2011), who was 20 years older than he and, well, a dame. The latter fact was confusing to Wrangler's fans, who were used to seeing him in the act with men in loops and X-rated movies.

This Post From My All-Time Most Popular Post: History's 125 Hottest Gay-Porn Stars: My List

Born into an entertainment family in Beverly Hills, Wrangler was a child actor in an early TV series, Jackwbut by young adulthood had transitioned into other forms of entertainment: he was a go-go dancer and a stage actor all too eager to strip naked as the part required. This led to his being recruited into guy/guy movies in 1970, when making it was not something desperate straight boys commonly did for easy money, but was also a political statement. He went on to make dozens of gay and straight hardcore flicks — maybe his most famous being Kansas City Trucking Co. (1976), though I always liked a dirty mag I found showing him as a bottoming cowboy — before retiring and working with his life partner, Whiting, on her own career. He created Dream (1997), a Johnny Mercer (1909-1976) revue, just for Whiting.

The best way to learn more about Wrangler is to see the 2008 documentary Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon. I saw it and loved it and will always regret that by then he'd already become too ill to attend. He had a Marlboro Man machismo and, as has been said before, Jack Wrangler had one of the industry's best-ever danglers. More seriously, he was the most mainstream gay-porn actor for decades, making him seem far ahead of his time.
