DirectorReleased: ROUGH. Shock TreatmentSeattle, WA – This has been an exciting day. Today, Titan Media lauched our new ROUGH line of fetish/Sm features with the release of Shock Treatment. Shock Treatment represents my directorial debut as a co-director with GayVN award winning videographer Paul Wilde Wilde for Titan Media.

Shock Treatment also represents the beginning of a unique series of documentary-style features that will bring extremely heavy yet responsible BDSM play to the screen and a broader audience of current and potential players. Those with an inclination to watch Shock Treatment will find some of the most electrifying examples of the kinds of scenes engaged in by the most experienced and heaviest players in the international fetish and Sm scene. They will also discover a vivid portrayal of the passions and connections shared by the players that engage in these intense extremes on the edge of pain and pleasure.

Before I continue on to all the pictures, clips and information I can share with you, I’d like to acknowledge and thank a few people. First and foremost, my personal appreciation goes out to the players that gave us a glimpse into thier moments of intimacy. My boy Derek da Silva, our pup Element from Portland together with Mitch Colby, Adam Knox and Andreas Cavalli delivered exceptional performances that truly capture the essence of this thing of ours. My thanks also go out to my friend and colleague, Paul Wilde. His technical knowledge and creative contributions have been instrumental to the production of this new line and I am grateful to be partnered with him. I am also indebted to the skill and dedication of the entire Titan team, from production crews through the editing and art departments. The talent of the individuals on these teams brought the production quality of Shock Treatment to unprecedented levels for features of this type. My deepest appreciation goes to Brian Mills for his mentorship. I can’t thank Brian enough for his encouragement, guidance and friendship. Finally, I want to express my gratitude to Keith Webb and Bruce Cam for giving me this opportunity to help create this new line of fetish/Sm features. Without their support, ROUGH would not be possible.

Who’s a Good Puppy?

Smokin'Who's a Good Puppy?Chicago, IL – The Titan crew spent its Sunday working and playing at the Titan/Priapebooth in the IML Leather Market. Now don’t get me wrong, working a booth in the market is work. For me, it meant answering a lot of questions about our IML release Folsom Flesh (“No, that’s not makeup on his ass. Those are blood blisters from the paddle”) and the new Rough line of fetish/Sm features I’m co-directing with Paul Wilde for Titan (“Copper wire wrapped around each nut and hooked to a crank generator [Giggle]”). It also meant stealing away brief moments to visit with friends from around the world and recruit players.

Honestly, I love performing but I get a little uncomfortable in large crowds. I don’t generally like people I don’t know getting in my space or touching me. It makes me irritable [read: dangerous]. That’s one of the reasons I like to play. A scene is kind of like theater; an invisible fourth wall exists allowing the audience to witness while providing an understood barrier. At least until someone from se-cu-ri-ty comes to shut you down.

Luckily, I had plenty of volunteers willing to help create a scene. Since we brought in our pup Element, who appears in Shock Treatment, the soon-to-be-released second feature of the new Rough line, I figured a little Sunday afternoon puppy play was in order. Director Brian Mills (pictured above) got into the action. Now, for a clip of some of the fun we had courtesy of Titan MediaRead the rest of this entry »

Rough Schedule and Buff’s Boys

20 May 2009 18:02

DsRough Schedule and Buff's BoysChicago, IL –- As I sit here contemplating the myriad of events lined up for this Memorial Day weekend, I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed and amazed. Memorial Day weekend is of course, IML Weekend in Chicago. It is also the weekend of ShibariCon, the Grabbys, play parties at the Chicago Hellfire Club and now the Pantheon of Leather Awards. With a line up like that, you’d figure Chicago would be the place you’d find me this weekend but I’m not sure I can really express just how queer this coming weekend feels to me… it’s kind of surreal…

You know, I’m still not really sure how all of this came to present itself, but somehow over the course the past year and a half, I not only became an adult video performer, but a leading player within the fetish/Sm scene both on screen and in play spaces and forums across the US and Canada. This weekend, for sure, is a long way from my roots as an activist once content acting in his local community. Read the rest of this entry »
