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.

Folsom Street Fair 2008

29 September 2008 15:20

TrainerFolsom Street Fair 2008San Francisco, CA –- Yesterday marked the first anniversary of my art film debut with the release of Fear, the release of my seventh feature Folsom Undercover and the second Folsom Street Fair with my boy Derek. This entry also marks the one year anniversary of this blog which has chronicled what has proven to be a wild and unexpected adventure.

Wild is definitely the adjective I’d use to describe yesterday’s festivities at the street fair. Derek and I arrive a little after noon to work our shifts at the TitanMen/NakedSword mega booth and the streets were already crowed asshole to bellybutton with people. Titan provided headshots for all the performers to sign, calendars to give away and a large stack of my ‘trading cards’ from NakedSword for me to hand out. As soon as we got into the booth there were calls from the crowd for autographs and photo ops. Derek and I jumped right in greeting both fans and friends as they came to the booth, giving away studio swag and a gift of our own.

Derek and I brought 300 black & white checkered hankies to hand out at the booth this year (photo above). The checker hanky is the hanky code flag for safer sex and represents a commitment to responsible play. Over the past year we’ve learned of far too many of our friends and acquaintances seroconverting, witnessed a cavalier attitude toward safer sex practices grow to become nearly normative and risk behavior touted as transgressive, edgy and cool. Bull shit.

Folsom Street Fair 2008The checker hanky was introduced in the 80’s, when as a community we worked hard to advocate safer sex and get the message out. And it worked; HIV transmission rates decreased through the 80’s and 90’s. Now, as we begin the 21st century, HIV transmission rates are on the rise among men who have sex with men. Something’s gone terribly wrong.

I was lucky; I got the message early. I realized I love sex and learn at an early age that the safer I was doing it the longer I’d be around to do it. I know a couple of ‘art film’ personalities handing out checkered hankies isn’t going to make much of a difference in the grand scheme of things, but if we can encourage even a few people to stand fast in their personal commitment to sexual health and the health of their partners regardless of HIV status then perhaps the message will reach more people than 300 checkered hankies.

Last year might have been larger than life but this year was mobile. Titan had wrapped the studio’s production van with the images of several exclusives, including yours’ truly (image above). We were playing the Blu-Ray™ edition of Folsom Undercover in the back of the van, but I wasn’t in a position to see the movie. I don’t think we would have had much time to take it in anyway. Titan seemed to have everyone on hand for the event. François Sagat, Dean Flynn, Diesel Washington, Alex Baresi, Dirk Jager, Frank Philipp, Eduardo, Rich van Sant, Chad Manning, Dominic Sol and Marco Blaze were all at the booth in addition to Derek and me.

Folsom Street Fair 2008Bonus: In addition to all those beautiful men, there was one more wonderful surprise, my boy from Seattle. Jeff (photo right) had been vacationing in Hawaii and had changed his flights home to include a stopover in San Francisco to join Derek and I at the Folsom Street Fair. It was great to have him there, but I wish I had gotten a chance to spend more time with him and I’m sure the whole thing was rather bizarre for him. He was a great help throughout the day and I need to think of a way to thank him for being there… oh, wait, I’ve got a pretty good idea how I can thank him, same way I thanked him yesterday morning for coming into town.

Toward the end of the day, NakedSword ask if Derek and I would come over their booth to create a crowd. It was our pleasure to help out our friends at NakedSword. A little impromptu rope bondage and impact play seemed to do the trick quite nicely (photo below by Darwin Bell for TheSword.com). I tied Derek down in one of my favorite ties for sex, his arms and legs securely bound beneath him with his ass exposed, then proceeded to deliver a good spanking with my hands and belt. The crowed seemed both horrified by and attracted to the intensity of this spur of the moment scene, which was really quite timid by our standards. At one point I overheard someone in the throngs say, “its okay they’re partners.”

Folsom Street Fair 2008Afterward, we did a little instructional bondage work, stuck around for some photo ops/autographs and handed out the last of the hankies.

When the street fair closed down Derek, Jeff and I walked over to the Hole in the Wall’s new digs and finally got some quality time together. While many of our friends decided to go to the Real Bad party, we preferred the music and surroundings of one of our favorite dive bars. And did we have fun. There’s nothing like cutting loose after being ‘on’ all day.

This morning we sent Jeff off to the airport for his flight home. Derek and I just got back from brunch and some shopping in the Castro and are about to head out to the airport ourselves. I’m exhausted, have picked up a cold and am not looking forward to saying goodbye to my boy. Luckily we get to see each other again in a couple weeks at ILSb.

Folsom Weekend: MOD and Magnitude

28 September 2008 11:08

MineFolsom Folsom Weekend: MOD and MagnitudeSan Francisco, CA –- The last couple days have been absolutely, incredibly unbelievable. The over whelming publicity, recognition on the street, reconnecting with the Titan crew and other performers, and a harried schedule have all contributed to this whirl-wind trip to San Fran.

Derek and I arrived at the Oakland airport Friday morning and were immediately inundated by friends and fans. It was kind of unnerving. After checking in with Roger at Shotgun, where we were staying for the weekend, we ventured out to the Castro to get some food and were literally stopped on the street five times by people we knew or knew of us. And that doesn’t count the knowing looks, pointing and candid photos taken by strangers from a distance. It was, well, a little strange. After lunch Derek and I ran into Julian from NakedSword and he showed us my Dream Team trading card and the two-page spread in Gloss magazine. I was really happy to see they had used the image of me standing in my leathers rather than the stills from Breakers for both. After getting back to Shotgun, Derek pointed out the Bay Area Reporter’s Arts & Entertainment section front page with my image from Folsom Prison to me. Well that explained a few things.

Folsom Folsom Weekend: MOD and MagnitudeSide Bar: Derek has done several Shotgun videos over the few years he’s been doing art films and I got to meet Roger a couple years ago at a leather/Sm run up in Washington State. I immediately fell in love with Roger. That’s him photographed above, beating my nuts during a demo this past summer. That same week Derek and I shot a video for Shotgun under Roger’s direction with permission from Titan. I had wanted to do a video with Roger and Derek since I first started in the industry and I am extremely grateful to Titan for loaning me out under contract to do the video. Roger says Squeeze Play is being edited now, so I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.

Friday night Derek and I had dinner with Brian Mills from Titan then went to the Men of Discipline Play Party at the Citadel. We were both pretty exhausted after travelling and settling in, but that didn’t stop us from playing. I decided to work out some new rigging; a horizontal side suspension. I hadn’t attempted this in the past so it was fun to just experiment and play around with it and my favorite stunt bottom. It wasn’t a heavy scene or anywhere over the top but a great way for the two of us to connect. I’ll be perfecting the rigging when Derek is in Seattle at the end of October and will post a gallery then.

Yesterday we had rehearsals, diner with the Titan performers and studio execs then the big performance at Magnitude. The rehearsal went well. We finalized the blocking, ran through the choreography and corrected some equipment and lighting issues. The dinner with Brian Mills, Keith Webb, Bruce Cam and all the Titan performers that were brought in for the weekend was really enjoyable. Our performance at Magnitude, however, has become the most memorable experience of the trip thus far.

The Titan Men did four separate performances for Magnitude, the official dance event of the Folsom Street Fair. Dean Flynn, Eduardo and Markus Ram recreated the imagery of the Magnitude poster for the opening set. Dean and a new Titan performer, Marco Blaze had the second set with live sex. The third set featured an elaborate abduction and water sports fantasy with Diesel Washington and a new kid who’s name escapes me. Derek and I had the final performance.

Our performance began behind a scrim, our shadows cast to the audience. A dance remix of Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood plays. As I stood apparently leaning against a wall, Derek walks up to caress my chest. I push his hand away but when he persists and goes for it again I push him to the side. Walking pass him, I emerge from behind the scrim and onto the second riser in front of the audience. Derek follows and touches my shoulder. I turn toward him with rope in hand. He goes to caress my chest again. I grab his wrist, place a slip knot around it and proceed to immobilize his upper body with a quick arm binder. As the music builds, I push him up against a St Andrew’s cross and secure him to it then begin flogging his front side. Derek is naked and hard as a rock while I hit him with the flogger on his thighs, chest, mid-section, cock and balls.

We build to frenzy then stop. I turn while securing the flogger back to my belt and remove the four foot signal whip from my torso. A break in the music occurs and I crack it several times over the audience before turning back to Derek.

Folsom Folsom Weekend: MOD and MagnitudeI begin to strike his mid-section with the whip. Crack. Crack. Topping my first front side single tail scene. Crack. Crack. The first full cut. Crack. Crack. The second cut and third. The blood comes to the surface as the music comes to its final crescendo. I draw close to my boy and caress him. As the music begins to fall away I rip off my codpiece to reveal my ragging hard-on, put the codpiece in his mouth, untie him from the cross and lead him from stage still bound.

Back stage we were totally wired, amped on the adrenaline and sexual tension. We wanted to fuck… hard. I asked the producer if we could do another set and fifteen minutes later I lead Derek back on stage. I bent him over the second riser, spit on his ass, sheathed my cock and plunged it into his ass. He writhed and pulled away. I looped the whip around his neck and pulled him back on my cock. We fucked for the audience.

I pulled out, moved to the front of the riser and sat down. Derek followed and mounted my cock, riding it up and down, all the way in and all the way out. Again and again, the crowd goes wild. I push him off, stand up on the riser and fuck him there until satisfied. I pull out and remove the condom, shave my cock down his throat and tie the condom to his collar. Then as the music dies, I replace my cock in his mouth with the checker hanky from my back pocket and lead him off stage once again.

There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as fucking your boy in front of a couple thousand people.
