Caged2010 Grabby NominationsSeattle, WA – A couple days ago, the 19th annual Grabby Award Nominations were announced. Apparently the Grabbys have honored me with three individual nominations and two scene nods. The scene nominations include Best Rimming with Adam Knox in Folsom Maneuvers and Best Duo with Will Parker in Folsom Flesh. The individual nominations include Hottest Cock (LOL), Best Supporting Actor for my role in Battle Creek Breakdown directed by Joe Gage and Performer of the Year.

Folsom Flesh also earned nominations for Best Leather Movie, Best Box Cover and Best Fetish Movie. In the Best Extreme Fetish category, both Rough. Shock Treatment and Triage earned nominations. While I’m always pleased to see projects I was involved in receiving recognition, I am particularly happy to see Shock Treatment‘s nomination for Best Extreme Fetish because it represents the first time a video I directed (co-credited with Paul Wilde) has received a Grabby nod.

Best of: the Blog

Smokin'Best of: the BlogPortland, OR – On September 29th of 2007 I posted my first entry to this blog. It was a quick and not-so-dirty little post coinciding with the release of Fear and my public foray into the adult industry. The Blog has evolved over the past couple years. It is at times promotional; documenting shoots, current projects and the latest releases. At other times my blog is more reflective and personal. My blog has also served as a forum for my essays and thoughts on community and what I like to call this thing of ours meaning queer leather/fetish and BDSM. On December 30th, Unzipped awarded an Unzippy to my blog as Most Informational (while still being hot) Blog. After learning of the award I got to thinking about the past year and decided to indentify ten entries that I believe best represent my contributions to the blogosphere. Now, for my “best of: the Blog’ list for 2009… Read the rest of this entry »

Why the Fuck am I Doing This?

ReflectiveWhy the Fuck am I Doing This?Portland, OR – This is going to be a far more personal and reflective entry than most of those that I have written before. A couple weeks ago XBIZ, the adult industry association, announced their nominations for 2010 awards. Among nominations ranging from Toy Manufacture of the Year to GLBT Company of the year to Transsexual Performer of the Year, there are the nominations for Gay Director of the Year. Among the individuals I know and respect nominated for Gay Director of the Year are Brian Mills, Chi Chi LaRue, Chris Ward, Kristofer Weston, Mr. Pam (with Michael Lucas), Steve Cruz & Leif Gobo, Steven Scarborough, and Paul Wilde (who is co-nominated with me for our work on the Rough line). Wow! I definitely didn’t expect this kind of recognition when I first got into the industry.

To understand why I do what I have done and what motivates me toward the future, I offer my initial attractions, my proclivity toward rough trade, what it’s like getting caught in the act and how I’m cruising for more… Read the rest of this entry »

Tonight at the Cuff

RiggingTonight at the CuffSeattle, WA – The first M4MKink.com‘s Gear party is tonight at the Cuff Complex. This will be a regular occurrence on the third Saturday of each month. To help kick it off, I’ve recruited my scene partner from Folsom Maneuvers, Adam Knox (pictured right) and some friends to perform a little rope bondage and rigging demonstrations. After all, the rope kit I’ve put together does contain my Gear of choice. The demos will start off the evening from 9 pm through 10 pm, when DJ Mattstands will begin spinning the beats you’ll be dancing to throughout the night. Now, for all the details, access to a VIP card and chance to win an autographed copy of Folsom ManeuversRead the rest of this entry »

Folsom & the Aftermath

15 October 2009 23:14

PersonalFolsom & the AftermathSeattle, WA – Folsom was a challenge this year. It was a full working week, plus. Between flying in on Monday and then out again the following Monday, we shot three scenes for the Rough line, attended several Folsom related parties, had brunch with Brian Mills, who heads Titan’s production department, and dinner with the studio executives, performed at Magnitude, appeared at the Titan booth at the Folsom Street Fair and conducted a series of meetings relating to the Rough line. In the middle of all of this, Folsom Maneuvers was released, and, as I mentioned in my previous entry, my local boy here in Seattle was rushed to the hospital with a serious infection. While at times it may have felt a little overwhelming, I was in good company the entire time. Our Titan crew for Folsom included (pictured from left to right): Will Parker, JR Matthews, Chris Yosef, myself, Derek da Silva and Francois Sagat. Read the rest of this entry »

Released: Folsom Maneuvers

CagedReleased: Folsom ManeuversSeattle, WA – This past weekend, in conjunction with Folsom Street Fair events, Titan Media released Folsom Maneuvers. Folsom Maneuvers is the seventh in the studio’s co-branded Folsom line of features following Folsom Filth, Folsom Leather, Fear, Folsom Prison, Folsom Undercover, and Folsom Flesh. It is also the fifth consecutive Folsom project that I’ve had the honor of being cast in as a performer. In Folsom Maneuvers‘ opening scene I’m paired with Adam Knox, who first appeared on screen in ROUGH: Shock Treatment which I co-directed with Paul Wilde. The chemistry between Knox and me had been growing since we first met here in Seattle, and my only regret regarding his performance in ROUGH: Shock Treatment was that I wasn’t fucking his sweet ass in that project, so I was eager to bring our connection to the screen. The weather couldn’t have been better at Titan ranch when we shot the scene which helped heighten the aggressive yet playful action. The scene is best described as dirty and wet.

Now, for a look behind the scenes of Folsom Maneuvers courtesy of TitanMen.com, an excerpt from the Scene Breakdown for Folsom Maneuvers and more… Read the rest of this entry »
