Released: Triage

CagedReleased: TriageSeattle, WA – Yesterday in San Francisco, Titan Media released Triage. It’s been five months since I’ve appeared in a feature released by the studio that has become my home, but this one should be well worth the wait… especially for those of you waiting for a performance that includes some extreme fetish play (admittedly, Home Invasion is one of the two fairly vanilla performances I delivered last year). Triage represents my eighth feature released by Titan and my eleventh overall in the industry. It is also the feature directorial debut for award winning cinematographer, Paul Wilde. Paul is a player in the community, dear friend and my co-director for the new line of fetish/Sm features presented by Titan, so I’m excited to see the entirety of this particular release.

Being a director for Titan does have its privileges, however. While I haven’t yet seen the whole movie, I have seen the near final edit of my scene, the finale, with scene partner, Colton Steele. It’s a great scene and I love how the connection Colton and I developed resonates on screen. The Scene Breakdown for Triage describes our scene as follows: Read the rest of this entry »

Released: Squeeze Play

CagedReleased: Squeeze PlaySan Francisco, CA –- Just about anyone into Cock & Ball Torture (cbt) and really heavy scenes caught on DVD is most likely familiar with Roger of San Francisco and Shotgun Video. I love his work. There isn’t much out there that compares to the intensity and level of play Roger captures on screen. My boy Derek had already worked with Roger before I met him and I’d wanted to work with him since I decided to get into the industry. Last summer, the Execs at Titan granted me special permission to do just that even though I was under contract as an exclusive.

Roger let me bring Derek in for the shoot and just let us play while he documented the entire session. The feature starts off with me shaving the boy down the way we usually do on the first night of a run like Inferno and contains over two hours of brutal cbt including squeezing, punching and kicking. It was a very comfortable shoot and the results captured on screen are probably some of the best representations of the kind of play we engage in and the connection we share. We had an incredible time and I think it resonates on screen. I can’t thank Titan or Roger enough for the opportunity.

You can check out all the details here or purchase a copy of Squeeze Play for yourself. To learn more about Roger and Shotgun Video, I suggest checking out Roger of SF.

TitanMen at Harvey’s

CagedTitanMen at Harvey'sSan Francisco, CA –- Last night was the big kick off to GayVN weekend in the Castro. From early evening through the late night, studios, media organizations, performers and fans congregated at various locations around the Castro. I started my evening off at Sui Generis which was hosting Steve Cruz’s event for the How I Roll campaign. I was there not just because my boy Derek was scheduled to appear (which he was) or I consider Steve a friend (he is) but because I support the cause. Efforts to advocate safer sex, educate our communities and open dialog about the prevention of HIV and STD transmission are as important now as they ever have been and I’m happy to do my part to bring attention to these efforts.

After the event, Derek and I made our way up the Castro, stopping to chat with Steven Scarborough from Hot House, Howard from FabScout, Mr Pam, representatives from Unzipped, TLA and NakedSword, and other performers in the industry.

TitanMen at Harvey's (Bonus)We made it to Harvey’s at about nine o’clock with enough time to grab a bite to eat before kicking off the official TitanMen cocktail party at ten. This was by far my favorite part of the evening. Joining us for the event were TitanMen Exclusive Dean Flynn (photo above), director Brian Mills, my new co-director Paul Wilde, Patrick O’Conner and several others from the studio. The staff at Harvey’s were great hosts and did an awesome job managing the crowd of people.

I addition to mingling with the fans and industry folks that came by, there were plenty of photo opportunities, time for play and a raffle to help raise money for The TitanMen/Folsom Fund. The highlights for me were commanding the microphone while Dean and Derek sold raffle tickets (boots to balls style) and playing with our local boy Rico (photo left) who joined us for the event. I so love the way Rico giggles when we beat him…

Production Code: Priape/IML

1 March 2009 14:42

CagedProduction Code: Priape/IMLSan Francisco, CA –- Just a couple of days after arriving home in Seattle, I was off to San Francisco to perform in the last scene shot for the Titan/Folsom co-branded release for IML in association with Priape. Since the shoot was Thursday and Friday I flew in Wednesday evening and stayed over a couple of extra days.

When I arrived at SFO, Patrick our Production Coordinator was waiting for me in Baggage Claim with my scene partner, Will Parker. As you can tell by the photo (right by Brian Mills), this boy is quite the little hunk. Standing approximately five-feet-eight-inches, Will is a 22 year old gymnast who just graduated college on the east coast and decided do to enter the industry to ‘create something extraordinary’. He had done only one other shoot with Titan prior to being paired with me and had zero fetish/Sm experience before we shot our scene together, but that didn’t prevent him from delivering one of the most impressive performances I’ve ever witnessed either on screen or in any play space. This kid is, without a doubt, extraordinary. I know he impressed me and I would welcome any opportunity to work or play with him again and again.

As always, I’m not going to comment in any detail on the content of the scene Will and I just completed, but I can provide you with the following observations to give you a frame of reference. While I probably get more than my fair share of boys seeking an introduction to this thing of ours and whose limits I then help them to explore and push, very rarely do I get an opportunity to push a boy quite so far and to such an extreme as was done in this introductory scene with Will. Watching it, you would almost swear this kid was an experienced Player, except there are those moments of pure and brutal honesty that reveal his innocence lost in the scene, captured by the cameras. It’s fucking beautiful.

Moreover, Will is an even more exceptional young man off camera. I had the distinct pleasure of spending some social time with him over the course of the shoot and what I discovered gave me an even higher regard for him. He is observant, articulate, inquisitive and intelligent. Very few people that I have met in this industry, especially among the performers, left me with as positive an impression. Never have I been so impressed by a man so young. Will has great potential and I would very much like to help him cultivate it as a mentor and friend.

Priape is the official fetterer for this Titan/Folsom co-branded feature scheduled for release over IML. All most all the gear you’ll see in the movie was supplied by Priape. They provided the custom leather apron (designed by Stéphane) that I’m wearing in the picture above, a full body leather suspension harness used in the scene, and leather shackles for Will. The quality of the gear was excellent. I especially love the apron (and I don’t generally get into gearing up). The body harness facilitated a great suspension scene and we sent the fetters home with the boy. He earned them.

I can’t wait to see our scene on screen, and hopefully more of Will and the guys from Priape in Chicago at the end of May.

Production Code: Priape/IMLBefore heading down for the shoot, my co-director of the new fetish/Sm line, Paul Wilde informed me that the 15 Association was having its annual dinner while I was going to be in town and offered me an invitation. Paul is a Player in the community and a member of the 15 in addition to being a friend so I was happy to accept the invitation. I asked my San Francisco boy, Rico, to attend with me and to my delight he jumped at the opportunity. I had him in a scene collar for the event and we played quite a bit before (and through) dinner. I simply love the way Rico laughs when I hurt him; it really is rather delightful. After dinner we did a suspension scene in the play space. It was a great time.

Saturday night, I met Rico at Chaps II and then spent the night with him again. At some point during the evening we were chatting with friends about MAL back in January. This of course included some good natured ribbing directed at me because of Ben’s (the kid) posting about the weekend. As those of you that follow his blog know, the kid called me out as being a ‘cuddler’, identifying it as the reason he slept on the floor of the suite I had with Derek one night that weekend. In my own defense, however, I will point out that only a kinky little boy like Ben would categorize a night-long rear naked choke hold as ‘cuddling’. At any rate, the entire thing is giving my dear friends endless amusement. Rico even found the story entertaining enough to motivate him to snap and forward the picture above to me while I slept Sunday morning. I just had to include it in this post because it is just too cute and funny not too.

First Shoot with Joe Oppedisano

1 February 2009 19:55

CagedtonyBuff_e_20081201_6559aSeattle, WA –- Remember how I mentioned that my boy Derek introduces me to some of the most interesting people? Well you might recall one of those people has been Joe Oppedisanno and that Derek and I did a photo shoot with the world renowned photographer in New York City a couple months ago. Early this morning I received the images from the shoot. They are all so incredible I had a hard time choosing the one to use for this post. Each one of the eight images is uniquely Joe and I can’t even begin to describe my appreciation. The pictures speak for themselves. I’ve posted them to a gallery, so you can check out all the photos.

My understanding is that seven of the images (all except the Global Warming PSA shot with the plastic bag) will be running in an upcoming issue of a French magazine and possibly a queer ‘zine here in the states as a series entitled ‘Derek loves Tony’. Isn’t that sweet? I certainly hope we get a chance to do another photo shoot with Joe.

Tony Buff Isn’t Role Playing – An Interview

CagedTony Buff Isn’t Role Playing - An InterviewSeattle, WA — Thom Seck, the editor of French gay bimonthly magazines dedicated to X rated gay world, Gay Video Star and Gay Video International interviewed me for an upcoming article in his magazine. In the interview transcript that follows I share how I define my relationship with Derek, views on the SM community and my upcoming directorial venture with Titan for a new line of fetish movies in the works. Since I get many of the same questions in messages from my readers here, I thought I post the interview…

As far as I know, you have been acting for 4 gay studios including TitanMen (Fear, Breakers, Chainsaw, Folsom Prison, Folsom Undercover, Funhouse and Home Invasion). You even have an exclusive contract with TitanMen. Why did you decide to play in adult films? Read the rest of this entry »
