Seattle, WA – FetishForce is rallying in Chicago Memorial Day Weekend for IML and the Grabby Awards. This message summarizes and outlines our plan of action for Chicago, Thu 26 through Tue 31 May 2011. Since IML is a major event for our community, FetishForce has chosen the IML host hotel as our base of operations for the weekend. This will facilitate each of us enjoying the festivities of IML while visiting with our friends in the community in addition to engaging in our promotional efforts at the various Grabby events. As you all know this all co-insides with our DVD release of Industrial Encounters and my co-hosting of the 2011 Grabbys. I am thrilled by the crew I will have with me to ‘Represent’ our community of family and friends at these huge events. I know we are going to have an outstanding time.

Seattle, WA – Recent medical research has raised hope of a possible new HIV prevention tool: Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). The CDC has issued guidance telling doctors how to prescribe HIV antiretroviral medication to negative gay men. On Wednesday, April 27th, Aleksa Manila and I will be co-hosting a community forum presented by Gay City Health Project examining this issue. Our featured panelists will include: Dr Jared Baeten from the University of Washington School of Public Health; Jim Pickett from the AIDS Foundation of Chicago; Michael Weinstein of AIDS Healthcare Foundation; Austin Anderson from the Center for Multicultural Health; Fred Swanson representing Gay City Health Project; and Darren Augenstein from SeattleMeds Pharmacy. The forum starts at 7pm in the Erickson Theater off Broadway (1524 Harvard Ave) and is free to attend. You can get more information at the Gay City website, watch a promotional clip and participate in an online survey of attitudes surrounding this issue. This will undoubtedly be a lively and informative forum. I do hope you’ll join us if you’re in Seattle.

Seattle, WA – Well, it’s been nearly three months since I updated this blog, but it has been an extremely busy and productive three months. The project that has most consumed me during this period has been a movie entitled Industrial Encounters, my first feature directing for the Falcon / Raging Stallion family of studios and my solo directorial debut. I’m happy to report that I put the film to bed yesterday. Although I also wrote, performed in and edited this movie, I didn’t do it alone. I was blessed with the help and support of many talented individuals through the process, reminding me that film making is a collaborative art. Now, for some much deserved recognitions, information regarding the upcoming release of Industrial Encounters and sneak peek at the trailer… Read the rest of this entry »

Seattle, WA – With the release of Invasive Procedures, the tenth and my final feature under contract with Titan Media for the Rough line, comes the announcement I have left the production house that has been my home for the past three years to assume a full time position as the Director of Fetish Production with the Falcon / Raging Stallion family of studios. I will also be serving as the Managing Director of FetishForce.com, the studio’s production line and VOD distribution point for BDSM and fetish content. My heartfelt thanks and appreciation go out to Titan Media for the tremendous opportunities that they have given to me over the years. Our work together, especially with the Folsom and Rough lines, has been a labor of love for me and a benefit to not just the fetish genre but also my community of family and friends. Had it not been for my experience at Titan, I would not be in a position to lead my own production team at FetishForce for Falcon / Raging Stallion. Read the rest of this entry »

Seattle, WA – “Brothers & Sisters… To silence our egos, we press the mute button and call upon the Light to speak on our behalf, especially on this occasion of Thanksgiving, so that our every word elevates our collective soul and all existence, as we gather together with grateful hearts to sing our appreciations for all the universe has given us… the passions that ignite our spirits, the challenges that have spurred our growth, the opportunities before us and the communities of family and friends that feed our souls through it all… And as we meditate upon our personal blessings, we offer our thanks to Mother Earth for nurturing our journey and Father Time for granting the cycles that give us perspective and hope… May we embrace each other as Family, with open hearts and minds, through this dinner, this holiday season and the year to come in Love and Light… Amen.” ~ Tony Buff as Chaplain for the Dragon Clan this day of Thanksgiving

Seattle, WA – There have been a few personal, professional and family issues which have demanded my attention over the course of the past several weeks that have prevented regular updates to this blog, but the time has come to catch you all up, starting with our latest release in the Rough line from Titan Media last month. As the name implies, the central theme for Kennel Master is Puppy Play, and no contemporary survey of BDSM play within the men’s community could be complete without this unique form of Animal Role-Play. While there are many forms of Animal Role-Play in the vast world of BDSM, including canine, feline and equine, pup play is particularly prevalent in our current gay Leather scene. For a closer look at our documentation of this phenomenon… Read the rest of this entry »

Seattle, WA – A couple weeks ago, Titan Media released the eighth installment in the Rough line of fetish/Sm features Paul Wilde and I are directing for the studio. When Paul and I discovered that our fifth in the Rough series, Pierced, would probably never be released on DVD (more on that when I write the book, lol), we were once again determined to capture what is essentially the rollercoaster ride created when a skilled top manipulates the hormonal responses in his or her bottom to create heightening waves of intense euphoria that build to a moment of catharsis. It’s not an easy task… and it is as far from what is generally captured on screen in relation to BDSM as is genuine sexual connection between the performers in most pornography. Thanks to the incredible performances delivered by fellow TitanMen exclusive Tiber Wolfe, Cullen Cable, Adam Russo and Spencer Reed, BFF: Bound Flogged Fisted accomplishes that task with extreme ass-play, an intense impact scene, bondage, torment and the kind of aggressive fucking that is best described as rough sex.

Seattle, WA – Each year over the Labor Day weekend, Generic Leather Productions of Washington (GLPW), in conjunction with our sponsors and many volunteers, produces the Northwest Leather Weekend in Seattle. The highlight of this weekend is the Northwest Leather Sir/boy and Community Boot Black (NWLSb/CBB) competition, a feeder contest to the International Leather Sir/boy and International Community Boot Black (ILSb/ICBB) titles. Known as the “Players Titles” among BDSM practitioners, these contests, along with the other regional competitions, bring members of our community together from throughout those regions and across the continent. And with so many Dragons based in the Pacific Northwest, it should come as no surprise to learn that our local event is a major attraction to many of the brothers and sisters who comprise my leather family (photographed right courtesy of Malixe). Helping to host this event has always been a source of joy for me personally, but this year I was overwhelmed by a sense of pride inspired by my pup Element as he ran for Northwest Leather boy.

Seattle, WA — Known in the industry as the ‘Oscars of gay porn’, the GayVN Awards are dedicated to recognizing outstanding movies and talented individuals within the gay adult entertainment industry. Its broad-based, nationwide panel of judges, predominantly gay press-affiliated, has been awarding trophies for 24 years, making the GayVNs the most respected and recognized awards in gay adult entertainment history. A few weeks ago the 2010 GayVN Award nominees were announced. This year I have been honored with three individual nominations (Performer of the Year, Best Duo Sex Scene and Best Top) and several of the features I’ve contributed to have been recognized.
