Mr San Diego Eagle 2010

FlagMr San Diego Eagle 201030,000 ft – This past weekend I was down in San Diego, California to serve as the head judge for the Mr San Diego Eagle contest. As you can gather from the title, this is neither a big regional event nor a huge audience draw. Rather, it is a local bar title that draws a dedicated mix of individuals from the local community. Nevertheless, I came away from the experience with some very strong impressions regarding what community means and just how powerful an impact effective leadership can have on a community. David, the new Mr San Diego Eagle, and his first runner-up, Stephen (pictured above on my right and left, respectively) are both excellent representatives of a vibrant community, and here’s why I think so… Read the rest of this entry »

Anatomy of a Scene: Impact Play

InstigatorsAnatomy of a Scene: Impact PlaySan Diego, CA – Of all the scenes we do, it is our impact play that seems to freak people out the most. Impact play is a common yet misunderstood part of the Leather-S/M scene. Whether delivered with bare hands (our personal favorite) or through a variety of implements designed or perverted to do wicked and nasty things – impact play can create strong physical, emotional and mental connections.

Released: ROUGH. Abuse of Power

DirectorReleased: ROUGH. Abuse of PowerSan Francisco, CA – This past Tuesday Titan Media released the fourth video in the Rough line of fetish/Sm features I’m co-directing with Paul Wilde. Abuse of Power is a solid feature with three sex-filled vignettes that explore three different examples of how some of us play with the exchange of power. Tristan Jaxx and I ambush and overpower Ridge Kane in the first. Erik Glock has his power taken from him at gun-point as he’s raped by Tyler Saint in the second. And Ruff Zindao surrenders to the business end of my six-foot bullwhip in a truly incredible free-standing display of self discipline and personal power in the final single-tail scene. From our darkest fantasies of abduction and rape, through brute force, gun play and pain, to the point of ecstasy and release, Abuse of Power delivers a unique glimpse into the way men play together on the edge.

Now, for a more personal take on Abuse of Power, a look at the trailer courtesy of TitanMen.com, an excerpt from the Scene Breakdown for ROUGH. Abuse of Power and more… Read the rest of this entry »

Sex Advice with an Edge (Part 1)

18 November 2009 12:54

FocusSex Advice with an Edge (Part 1)Seattle, WA – Yesterday I sat down with Dr Dick for a podcast interview as part of his Sex Advice with an Edge series. You’ll recall my boy Chris Yosef did an interview with the Doc a few months ago and I was called out to add my take on this thing of ours. In this first part of our interview we discuss: the need for a body double, or at least a cock double; the Pacific Northwest as a hotbed of perversion; my on-screen persona being the same as my off-screen persona; how I got my start in the ‘art film’ industry; workshops Derek da Silva and I present together; my mentors; my collaboration with Titan Media and the new Rough line; the challenges, opportunities and future of porn; the bareback phenomenon; and my essay A More Nuanced Position. As the summary of the podcast from Dr Dick states… Read the rest of this entry »

Associate Applicants’ Weekend 2009

17 November 2009 20:08

ReflectiveAssociate Applicants' Weekend 2009Seattle, WA – Landing in Seattle was like a return to reality. Often when I fly out to attend Chicago Hellfire Club (CHC) events, especially those with my boy Derek Da Silva, I feel as though I’ve escaped… escaped from the harsh realities of the day-to-day; escaped from the ever present judgment of those who don’t understand; escaped from every type of relationship except the type of relationship in which you would expect love and respect; escaped… I put my boy Derek in his place. We had an awesome three-way with Douggerz, his partner of more than a decade. I shared time with my brother Odie and Cousin Rob. I had a photo shoot to document my current physical state. I was pampered more than one would expect. And I ran some much over-due scenes. To give you I glimpse into all of these things… Read the rest of this entry »
