Vest2015 Grabby Award NominationsSeattle, WA – A couple days ago the 2015 Grabby Award Nominations were posted to the Grabby’s website. Although I began my hiatus from the industry in January of 2014, the content and features produced toward the end of 2013 didn’t street (or get released) until after the beginning of 2014 thereby making them eligible for this year’s Grabbys. Among the four-hundred-thirty-plus nominees in twenty-nine categories, our cast and crew at FetishForce earned three nominations. In addition to FetishForce.com being nominated for Best Fetish Site, both Sounding #9 and Warehouse Kinks were nominated in the Best Fetish Movie Category.

Sounding #9Sounding #9, with two scenes directed by Chris Ward and four scenes directed by me, was released in June 2014. Starring Armond Rizzo, Boomer Banks, Boygravy, Brian Bonds, Element and Kyle Wood, this ninth edition in the Sounding series by Raging Stallion Studios (under the FetishForce line) once again explores the uniquely stimulating practice of urethral sounding and dilatation. Given the fact that my initial experience with Raging Stallion when I first began performing in the adult industry back in 2007 included a sounding scene with Derek de Silva (my collared boy at the time) that launched the series with Sounding #1. I find it a little strange and slightly amusing that now, seven years later, this title is nominated for Best Fetish Movie, this time with me in the director’s chair.

Warehouse KinksIt’s also wonderful to see the primary product of my last production run with Falcon / Raging Stallion Studios, Warehouse Kinks, nominated in the Best Fetish Movie category. Shot in September 2013 and released in January 2014, Warehouse Kinks features some of the best fetish players in the industry at the time, including Boomer Banks, Christopher Daniels, Shane Frost, Draven Torres, Preston Steel, Jimmy Fanz, Chase Young, and me (for the last time in over a year). While not extreme by my own measure, Warehouse Kinks still captures the essence of contemporary play in the men’s fetish community with a raunchy and edgy exploration of male sexuality. From foot domination and face-sitting that crosses the line into breath-control through control bondage, spanking and CBT to face fucking, electro stim, and merciless edging, Warehouse Kinks truly delivers the kind of hardcore, man-on-man sex that plays out in the back rooms and dungeons around the world. I’m proud of the feature and happy it has received this recognition.

I’m also pleased to see FetishForce.com nominated for Best Fetish Site. It gives me this opportunity to recognize and thank the many performers, crew members and studio staff that helped create the original content under my tenure as Director of Fetish Production with the studio. If were not for the performances of go-to players like Doc Benway, Brian Bonds, Boyhous, Jessie Colter, Race Cooper, Alessio Romero, Preston Steel, Draven Torres, Dirk Caber, Drake Jaden, Sebastian Keys, Angelo Marconi, Byron Saint and Zack Taylor, the scenes would never have resonated so deeply with the viewers. If it were not for the contributions made by Leo Forte, Element Eclipse and Kyle Wood, both in front of and behind the camera, the content would not have been as rich or dynamic. The involvement of these individuals combined with the stellar photography of Ken Taylor, Edward Scott and Mike Graves, the skills of our graphic arts department, the mentorship of my fellow directors and the support of the studio staff all contributed to an extraordinary experience and the production of exceptional fetish content. For that I am truly grateful.

To the Grabbys, I offer my heartfelt gratitude for the recognitions you’ve bestowed upon us this year. My congratulations go out to all of this year’s nominees (the full list can be found here), especially my friends and colleagues: Boomer Banks, Bruno Bond, Brian Bonds, Dirk Caber, Race Cooper, Steve Cruz, Tony Dimarco, Jimmy Fanz, Leo Forte, Gio, Doug Jefferies, Chi Chi LaRue, Derek Pain, mr. Pam, Kent Taylor, and Kristofer Weston. If I make the trek to Chicago for IML/Grabbys weekend this year, I hope to see you all at the awards ceremony.
