YouTube Round Up: [Censored] Celebrity Skin Edition
Fiddlesticks! I knew it was too good to be true. Just 24 hours after posting Vol. 2 of the celebrity skin round-up, Veoh decides to change their terms of service and stop letting users post porn clips.
In light of this lameness, below is the revised (and depressingly truncated) round up:
1. Eating Out Double Full Frontal
The much talked about clip from last year's indie gay sleeper (snoozer, perhaps...) "Eating Out" features "Desperate Housewife" pinup Ryan Carnes getting busy with the also-hot Scott Lunsford. It's a long clip (and I have no idea what's up with the Chinese subtitles) but you see Scott's cock at 7:44 and Ryan's at 8:15.

Clay Aiken Semi-Nude Webcam Pics?
Clay Aiken naked: The mere thought sends shivers down my spine. Whereas I've nothing against a ginger kid (Blu Kennedy, call me!), something about Clay Aiken's flavor of fetal-face vagina rock really makes my dick shrivel. Which is why I get a somewhat sadistic thrill re-posting this scan of ALLEGED webcam shots of Clay, printed in this week's tabloids and then scanned and posted by Perez Hilton.
Is this really Clay Aiken? The top right picture does look like him but the other not so much. If that is, in fact, his body, I see full well why John Paulus couldn't get the slightest whiff of a hard-on while getting pounded bareback by him for an hour and a half, as he purports. OK, I just threw up a little in my mouth.
I'm leaving the comment on for this post -- don't be shy, let us know how you really feel.

Clay Aiken Lover Films First Sex Scene
It's really something out of a fairy tale. Ex-Green Beret meets young crooner and, after a flurry of romantic letters -- er, IMs -- meets with him in a North Carolina hotel room. While it sounds like a recipe for true love, John Paulus (right, on right) certainly found his experience with American Idol loser Clay Aiken sorely lacking. And not just cause Clay reputedly wanted to fist him. Despite letting Clay fuck him without a condom, Paulus couldn't get the guy to return his phone calls.
Of course, there is an upside sordid tryst -- complete with a DNA-soiled rag waiting to be entered into evidence -- John Paulus is now a Lucas Entertainment exclusive. Yesterday, he filmed his first scene with Wilson Vasquez (of Fire Island Cruising fame). Porn impersario Michael Lucas confirms that Paulus' scene with Vasquez went smoothly and, unlike when he was with Aiken, Paulus was able to stay erect. Happy Valentine's Day.
P.S. For more info on John Paulus, Michael Lucas and Clay Aiken, check out LucasBlog.com for exhaustive coverage of the tawdry affair.

Gay Porn Bits and Bites
Quite a week in world of gay porn. I don't quite know where to start. Actually, I know exactly where I'll start: With the biggest story of the year (so far). It was just announced that Wash West won Sundance. "Quinceanera", which he directed and wrote with his partner, Richard Glatzer, snagged both the dramatic jury grand prize and the audience award. It's an amazing feat in and of itself, but even more mind-blowing when taken in to account that it's the same Wash who directed Animus, Gluttony, Technical Ecstasy as well as The Hole for Jet Set. Nick Boyas and Avi Raccah, owners of Marina Pacific (who distribute Wet Palms) are listed as Executive Producers of "Quinceanera" alongside Todd Haynes.
Meanwhile, over at Fleshbot, their super sleuth editor Jonno has figured out that the Web site currently causing an Army investigation is actually Dink Flamingo's ActiveDuty.com (home of Cole, seen left. It's so weird that the Army would think that fucking your barracks buddy bareback would disqualify you for "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".Continue reading "Gay Porn Bits and Bites"

Requisite Grainy Colin Farrell Cock Shots
I just assumed that everyone had seen these but the requests keep trickling in (and Hector, devoted GayPornBlog reader, was nice enough to send these), so here you are (for those who can't get enough, or continue to get a thrill out of seeing real celebrity boner): a few of the more interesting, vagina-free seconds from "Dirty Colin".
Sadly, he's not as big as rumors had us to believe, but we wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers.Continue reading "Requisite Grainy Colin Farrell Cock Shots"

Frequent visitors to this site know that we tend to shy away from gratuitous innuendo-filled paparazzi shots of non-gay porn celebrities and their bulges, but everyone else is posting it, and it's been a slow week (OK, OK, I'm the slow one this week,) so here you go ... here's the pictures posted on every other gay blog in the universe:

Filip Trojovsky/Tommy Hansen Woes Continue
Turns out that Tommy Hansen / Filip Trojovsky's gotten around quite a bit -- not just as a pass-around party bottom in the group scene of Bel Ami's Jullian.
He was also in a German yogurt commercial ("Der joghurt mit der ecke!") from Mueller a German dairy company.
When "ultra conservative" Mueller caught wind of his gay porn confession on Big Brother they quickly pulled the spot off the air. German tabloids are, in turn, foaming at the mouth over this. I can't blame them.
My German Deepthroat, Koki, sent me some stills from the commercial, where he plays an "akrobat". No one ever doubted his ability to bend over.

Tommy Hanson Ousted From Big Brother
The Czech Republic has spoken. They don't want gay porn stars on their reality TV shows. Filip Trojovsky, AKA
Bel Ami's Tommy Hanson, was voted off the CZ version of the international hit reality show Big Brother, roughly two weeks after he admitted to sitting on the occasional cock for college koruna. He's the second contestant voted off this season.

Gay Pride 2005 Day 2: An Ode To Mr. Pam
Still fuzzy from the Friday night festivites, as Saturday rolled along I forgot to bring my camera with me. Each Saturday before the big Parade, the million or so gay tourists (give or take 250,000) descend upon the intersection of 18th and Castro and flood the streets with unabashed faggotry. It's like a scene out of a zombie movie: the climactic finale where the walking dead take over the city and really is the last place I can deal with when hung over.
Yet it was the premiere of Colt's eXposed at the film festival, and I wasn't about to miss it for the world. It's a behind-the-scenes feature of Buckleroos and was shot and edited by the one and only Mr. Pam.Continue reading "Gay Pride 2005 Day 2: An Ode To Mr. Pam"

Top Model, Gay Porn Star
Just when you thought the staff of America's Next Top Model couldn't get any gayer, witness Bertini (far right). The would-be South African dancer got a little TOO into a spicy shoot on the niche hit reality show. Of course, we saw him first ... when he auditioned for gay porn soap Wet Palms.
Bad-touch Bertini was accused by a crocodile-teared Keenya of brushing, moaning and otherwise acting sexy on last night's episode. I thought I recognized his crazy green eyes, but it wasn't until I saw him in a leopard skin thong that I made the gay porn connection.Continue reading "Top Model, Gay Porn Star"

American Idol Gay Porn Scandal
Gay-ish American Idol host Ryan Seacrest is busting a nut over American Porn Star host Jason Sechrest ... and he's taken the case to the court of Celebrity Justice! Jet Set Production's hugely popular American Porn Star recently walked away with the GayVN Award for Best Renting Title (that means cash money, folks), but the case against it is hardly new. American Porn Star producer Brett Drysdale assured Gay Porn Blog that any issue of copyright infringement was settled more than a year ago -- after an infamous gay porn "popcorn summit" with Fox and the producers of American Idol.Continue reading "American Idol Gay Porn Scandal"

Celebrity Enema Porn
I love a good blog, but one that posts nudie shots of reality TV stars in gay-ish quasi-pornish sexual situations really makes me pay attenion. Jake Bronstein may hold the dubious honor of being the only Real World/Road Rules alumni who's ever been able to climb out from under the shadow of the show and move beyond "Reality TV Star". The Steve-O look-a-like is an accomplished writer / photographer with an excellently compelling web site and Blog where he posts more-than-enough self-indulgent nude photos (including this delicious photo of his fat cock after he "accidentally" used shimmer body lotion to whack off) and a delightfully homoerotic romp he caught on film between fellow RR/RW alums Eric Nies and Laterrian giving themselves pool-filter enemas. Does this count as gay porn? Someone call Hot HouseContinue reading "Celebrity Enema Porn"

Gay Porn Stars Get Elton's Oscar
Elton John's not coming to the GayVN gay porn awards, but that didn't stop him from climbing aboard (or was that under) the gay porn train. Evidently the Bel Ami boys -- Lucas Ridgeston, Sebastian Bonnet and Johan Paulik -- were in full effect at Elton John's post-Oscar Bash, along with gay porn lovin' Scissor Sisters, juicing up an otherwise dull night at the Kodak. Did Elton commission his own private "Enchanted Forest" or was the Rocket Man forced to burn his fuse alone?
Oh, the humanity! Remember when only attractive, well-hung made sex vids? If David Furnish pops up on the internet, I quit.

Gay Porn Marine in White House?
Politi-blogger Daily Kos (*warning ... link contains no porn whatsoever*) is running a story showing that conservative mud-slinger "reporter" Jeff Gannon aka Jim Guckert (who's got a rep for playing dirty with Dems in press conferences), really maybe likes to play dirty with other Marines. He's got quite a few domain names registered to him, including MilitaryEscortsm4m.com, HotMilitaryStud.com and the too-titilationg-for-words ExposeJesseJackson.com. They've also managed to unearth an I'm too-sexy-for-my-shrit AOL profile. Nice work, Markos!

Gay Porn Dispatch: Hardcore Sex at Sundance!
I just got back from an Ugg-studded Park City and while Wet Palms won't be competing this year, the 2005 Sundance Film Festival has more sucking and fucking on its hallowed film screens this week alone than in the entire history of Utah.
On Friday night, directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato premiered their penetrating look at Linda Lovelace et al. with Inside Deep Throat. The doc interviews everyone from Hugh Hefner and Helen Gurley Brown to Gore Vidal and Harry Reems (the wacky doctor who discovers that Linda Lovelace's clitoris is at the base of her throat). Unlike so many porn docs, the Brian Grazer-produced film lets the original Deep Throat speak for itself, with an explicit and funny shot of Linda going down on Reems, taking the cock like a pro. While one audience member did express dismay that this was not a documentary about Watergate, the rest seemed prepared to accept the sex-cess.Continue reading "Gay Porn Dispatch: Hardcore Sex at Sundance!"

NakedSword.com, Gay Porn Blog Sweep Awards
I know, I know -- you think we're a bunch of delinquents for not getting all the photos and gossip up from Internext and the 5th Annual Cybersocket Awards. I'm sure you're all looking for new porn for gherkin' jerkin', too. But being a award-winning porn celebrity is tiring chilluns. And, of course, we're still trying to recover all the entries from November and December. But that shouldn't stop us from tooting a few horns.
The Cybersocket Awards, held at the Gipsy in Las Vegas, was filled with porn stars and sub-lebrities like us (Tim Valenti from NakedSword.com, Lisa Bang from Gay.com, Mark from Lavender Lounge, Rod Barry from my dreams), all hankering for a piece of bronze-plated glory. Directrix Chi Chi LaRue hosted the festivities, her arms dripping with sweet honeys like Johnny Hazzard.
NakedSword.com won so many awards I could hardly keep count -- Best Pay-Per-View Site, most notably, as well as collecting an award for the (now) award-winning Wet Palms site. And humble little us beat off, er, out the competition for Best Blog Site. Whoo-hoo! Thanks to all of you who voted for us -- we wouldn't be able to do it without you!

Actually, Who Hasn't Fucked Alec Baldwin in His Ass?
Since it's all over Page Six and the other gossip rags, why shouldn't we jump on the bandwagon? Especially since we were in LA with the Fleshbot editors when they broke the story last week.
Dessarae Bradford wrote a book called, "I Fu*ked Alec Baldwin in His A*s" (sometimes called "I F***** Alec Baldwin in His A**" and sometimes called "My S/M Romp with Alec Baldwin".) And although we find the idea rather repellant, this interview on FB is a hoot ... especially when Dessarae is all, "I am not a trannie!"

Everybody is on the search for the reportedly elephantine full-frontal shots of the intact Mr. Farrell in the new movie At Home At the End of the World. I love Colin too, and I am glad to hear he's avoided the Irish Curse but until I see proof ...
I've seen enough large cocks in my life, in and out of porn, to leave the process of tracking Colin's commendable corn-holer down to Jonno at FleshBot. I'm sure he'll be the first to know. I'll be too busy humping Jared Leto.

Just when I was about to crown Penelope Cruz "Beard of the Year,"* I came across this rara avis -- a mutton-chopped Mormon missionary! The scruffy lad is forced to carry a "beard card" (available by prescription only, I kid you not!) when on the BYU campus.

Jake Gyllenhaal's gay disclosure
I always got a sort of faggy vibe from Jake Gyllenhaal, but maybe my gaydar's not so rusty after all. Discussing his role as a man-loving cowboy in the upcoming "
Bareback Brokeback Mountain", he said, "every man goes through a period of thinking they're attracted to another guy."
Maybe he meant to say every gay man? Maybe I'm just fantasizing.
Or maybe I should just watch Mardi Gras Cowboy again and pretend Jim Buck is pounding Jake's ass.

Pitt's Porn Pic
I'm sure everyone is going to spend their weekend on that lensful of nude Brad Pitt called Troy. Variety calls it out:
What's really going on ... is the cinematic fetishizing of an actor on a virtually unequaled level. Appearing almost impossibly buffed, bronzed and chiseled, Pitt is lavished with elaborate photographic attention by [director Wolfgang] Petersen and lenser Roger Pratt, in the way Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich -- but very few men -- have been.
And yet, in this day and age, you can't whack off in a theater. Go figure. FREE DAN RENZI!
In honor of Mr. Pitt's fine piece of ass, I offer this bounty of Trojan-stylie gay pornography.
Brad Pitt's multiple nude scenes are there if only to offset Troy's reported quarter-billion dollar price tag. Besides, I got my fill of big budget historical flops from last year's Marc Anthony anyway.
If you ask me, it's a shame you don't see Eric Bana's ass. Not that he ever was a beanpole, but he's hulked up so much for this movie, I wouldn't be surprised if Blue Blake comes a knockin'.
Brad Pitt nude is so ten years ago.

Two Celebrity Outings
I love celebrity gossip, and I'm constantly looking for hints about who is gay. When a famous person actually comes out, it's big news! Many times you have to read between the lines, like why was Kevin Spacey REALLY walking his dog at 4 AM in cruisy park in London. Hmm. But now we have the juice on a famous jazz musician and the foster son of a Bible thumper.
Jamiel Terry, 24, got paid to write his coming out story for OUT Magazine. In his own words, "’It's hard to point to one moment when you begin to come out to yourself, but if I had to, I’d go back to a night seven years ago, when I was 17. I was home from boarding school in my old bedroom at my parents’ house in Windsor, N.Y., where my friend “Johnny” and I had just finished fooling around. Suddenly he asked me, “Do you think we are bisexual or gay?” The question so stunned me, I didn’t know how to respond. I mean, we had been having sex for ages, but I’d always believed I couldn’t be gay: I was the son of Randall Terry, a major leader of the Christian right’s antiabortion movement and now a leader in the fight against marriage for same-sex couples. I’m 24 now and I’m still figuring out my own story."
Randall Terry is one of those anti-abortion nutcases that caused abortion clinic workers to fear for their lives. His rallies featured giant photos of aborted fetuses in coffins. When the courts forced him to stop, he turned his attention to demonstrating at gay parades and preventing gay marriages from happening in Hawaii. Read the father's response to the coming out story, and you'll understand why the kid is in trouble. The father claims the kid still wants to on a "three month retreat to be delivered from homosexuality", even after the article was published. Or watch this movie with a similar theme.
The other celebrity outing has less drama and essentially a happy ending. Smooth jazz saxophonist, Dave Koz has come out in Advocate. He'd been living a completely out lifestyle in his personal life, but it was just never mentioned in his professional life. The occasion to say "I'm gay" just never came up - no potential for blackmail, no skeletons to hide, the people who were important already knew.
I'm familiar with his name, and aware that he is highly respected in his work. Prior to this, when ever his name was mentioned on one of the "Quiet Storm" radio stations (I think there's one in every city), what comes to mind is, "Oh, he's the cute one."
If there was any doubt to his being gay, check the photos from his birthday party. It reminds me of the line from Roseanne, "Thank god for gay men. Otherwise, fat girls would have no one to dance with."
I'm trying to think of a porn movie that involves a saxophone, but came up with nothing. I can only think of one gay porn movie that involves musicians, but it's a sucky punk rock band. And by that I mean sucky in a good way.
There are no more undiscovered fetishes, so where are the gay saxophone fetish movies?

Porn Star Baseball Player Pt. 2
UPDATE 01/29/04: VIDEO HAS BEEN FOUND! CLICK HERE FOR SCREENSHOTS!
So when will we get to see the gangbang video of Kazuhito Tadano, Paris Hilton, Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee? Maybe never, but in the meantime, here are some possible baseball related titles that already exist:
Indians pitcher asks forgiveness for role in gay porno video
TOM WITHERS, AP Sports Writer
Tuesday, January 27, 2004
(01-27) 18:08 PST CLEVELAND (AP) --
Indians minor leaguer Kazuhito Tadano is asking for forgiveness for what he called a one-time mistake -- his appearance in a gay porn video in which he engaged in a homosexual act.
Tadano took part in the video three years ago when he was a college student. Sitting in the Cleveland clubhouse Tuesday, the pitcher said he hoped to put his actions in the past.
"All of us have made mistakes in our lives," Tadano said, reading a statement in English. "Hopefully, you learn from them and move on."
Shunned by Japanese baseball teams, the 23-year-old Tadano signed with the Indians last March. They think he can make their club this spring.
Tadano gave few details about the video, which he made after his sophomore year at Rikkyo University.
"I did participate in a video and I regret it very much," he said. "It was a one-time incident that showed bad judgment and will never be repeated. I was young, playing baseball, and going to college and my teammates and I needed money.
"Frankly, if I were more mature and had really thought about the implications of what I did, it never would have happened."
Through an interpreter, Tadano added: "I'm not gay. I'd like to clear that fact up right now."
The Indians set up the press session after getting many requests from reporters to speak with Tadano. The team wanted to address the issue before spring training starts next month.
Tadano's admission will certainly draw attention to homosexuality in baseball, a sensitive issue that most players prefer to not even discuss.
In 2002, All-Star catcher Mike Piazza felt the need to hold a press conference to profess his heterosexuality after a newspaper gossip columnist suggested that one of the New York Mets' top players was gay.
There are no openly gay players in the big leagues today. The same is true in the NFL, NHL and NBA.
Tadano was one of Japan's top college pitchers and expected to be a high first-round pick in 2002. But after a Japanese tabloid published photos of him in the video a month before the draft, pro teams in Japan did not select him.
"The commissioner of Japanese baseball came out and said, 'You will not draft Tadano,"' asserted the pitcher's agent, Alan Nero. "But this kid didn't assault anybody. He didn't commit murder. If anything, he is guilty of being naive."
Twice in the minor leagues last season, Tadano stood before his teammates and confessed to his participation in the video, which Nero said can only be obtained on the black market in Japan.
Tadano received overwhelming support from players at Kinston, N.C., where he started the season and later at Akron, the Indians' Double-A affiliate.
"I wanted to tell the truth to my teammates," he said.
A former starter, he pitched in all three levels of the minors last season, going 6-2 with a 1.55 ERA and three saves. At Akron, he didn't allow a run in his first 28 innings and struck out 78 in 72 2-3 innings.
Outfielder Grady Sizemore said Tadano's speech last year was well received in the clubhouse.
"You could tell he was nervous," said Sizemore, a top prospect who lived with Tadano this winter. "But I don't think it changed anybody's opinion of him. After it was said and done, nobody thought anything more of it. He's a great guy and a great pitcher."
If he pitches well during spring training, Tadano could win a spot in Cleveland's bullpen. Whenever he joins the Indians, pitcher C.C. Sabathia says Tadano will be welcomed.
"This is the right team and the right organization for him," Sabathia said. "We have good guys here. Everybody has done something that they regret in their lives. He's a person just like everyone else."
Tadano tried out for several major league teams last spring in Arizona. Coming off an elbow injury, he didn't get any offers. Nero said some teams were turned off by what he called "the scandal."
"He didn't pitch well enough for them to ignore it," Nero said. "I also think they were afraid of the baggage that would come with it."
Not the Indians. They liked Tadano enough to invite him to work out at their spring training facility in Winter Haven, Fla. Eventually, they signed him to a minor league contract that included a $67,500 bonus.
General manager Mark Shapiro said the team decided to sign Tadano despite knowing there could be backlash.
"We thought the upside was well worth the risk, energy and time to support him," Shapiro said.
Tadano knows he may face fan abuse in major league parks such as Yankee Stadium, where heckling the visitors is part of the pageantry.
He joked that he's ready for it.
"I don't understand English, so it doesn't really matter," he said.

Arnold's Porn Connections? Pt.2
In the Ocotber 30th issue of the Bay Area Reporter, sports writer Jim Provenzano has dug even further into Schwarzenegger's porn connections. The article is not found online yet, but Prevenzano's website is sportscomplex.org. I will share some of the quotes:
Every message he sends has all the consistency of Janus, the two-faced creature of Greek mythology.
His presidential fitness program come froma man who posed stogie-chomping on the cover of "Cigar Aficionado". He claims vast business knowledge, while his failed Planet Hollywood restaraunts have gone bankrupt. His adherents claim he's "gay friendly" while he's vowed to keep marriage a straight-only deal.... Still, some gay people think that, having posed nude a few times, Arnold likes us, he really, really likes us.
Recent pictures oa Arnold posing with cast members of the sadly canceled show "Battle Dome" prove that Arnie's at least friendly with a few model/acotr types with a porn past they'd rather forget: Christian Boeving and Chad Ullery.
Boeving, of fitness magazine, B-grade movie, and (clothed) Playgirl fame, is also a one-time porn cast member in the saucy Posing Strap (1994 Director Chi Chi LaRue, ed.). As Lance Bronson, he gets a little extra fluffing in a faux-vintage photo shoot.
Much speculation in online forums debate whether it is Boeving, but porn actor supreme Zak Spears has confirmed that his tongue did indeed delve deep into Boeving's less-defined, yet well-muscled, posterior.
Ullery, who has graced the pages of Colt and Playgirl, and bottomed in a few porn video, including "Behind the Barn Door", is currently in the state of California, and denial. He recently acquired a lawyer, who, after a few insistent and annnoying phone calls to this publication's offices, made it clear that he did not perform in said videos and was allegedly the victim of a sexed up doppelganger.
I refused to recant my column about Ullery's diverse career, as it was based on lots of factual research... Denial like that of Ullery's is part and parcel of an allegedly gay-friendly fitness behemoth of Schwarzenegger's fame.
When prolific author Jack Fritscher tried to sell Arnold memorabilia a few weeks ago, eBay promptly censored his listings, alleging that Fritscher's political statements on his online storefront were "inappropriate".
Fritscher is the author of "Some Dance to Remember", a massively passionate novel of bodybuilders. Also a former lover of Robert Mapplethorpe, his personalized biography is only part of the Mapplethorpe legacy. Fritscher's recently sold archival items include photos of Schwarzenegger considered even more risque than the frontal nude published in Spy magazine years ago.
The Mapplethorpe foundation is apparently keeping the naughty pics under wraps, proving that the Gropinator's censorious tentacles reach beyond the state line.
Meanwhile, the glut of auctions for another frontal pic resource, old copies of After Dark featuring Arnold, are going cheap.
But wait! There's more!
Remember Paul Baressi of the "I slept with John Travolta. Oops, no I didn't" fame?
Baressi, long a performer in the erotic and prostitutional arts, wiht a diverse resume of straight, gay, and bi porn magazines, is also a director of spanking films and cigar kink videos. A Vietnam vet and state wrestling champion, Baressi has suceeded in spanning the realms of diverse career choices, from private investigator to star of "My Dad Beats My Ass", and "Men of The Midway".
Less known on his curriculum vitae is that of one-time bodyguard to Arnold and his wife, the frighteningly thin Maria Shriver.
One wonders what other sort of personal services the randy and always ready Baressi might have provided during employment for the once and future Fuhrer.
This interesting association inspires a dredging (or Drudgeing?) of some other even more confusingly porny remnants of "Aw-node's" not too distant past.
Even his workout books have a closer relationship to the adult section of your local video store. (see photos)
Take "Arnold's Bodybuilding for Men", one of the scads of large-format exercise books with lots of black and white images of handsome men stretching and flexing in shorts about three sizes too small....But a more interesting model is the mustached gent that may be familiar to fans of Joe Gage's classic 1977 porn film, "El Paso Wrecking Corp."
Mike Morris, whose erotic career wastoo shortlived (Pieces of Eight, California Fox and a Colt photo spread), shows how he got so flexible in Arnold's book, where he's clothed, but still quite sexy.
Morris's role in El Paso is as a father who greatly enjoys himself as he watches Fred Halsted fellate his son (Jared Benson). will this be part of Arnold's "GOP Family Values" platform?...
A politician's proximity to sex workers and porn does not ensure political sexual freedoms, nor does his former peak physical condition assure us of a healthy state.
What it does ensure is duplicity, mendacity, and a raging wildfire of absurdity yet to come.

Arnold's Porn Connections?
This juicy item is from the Herald Sun in Australia, but there are more stories developing about Arnold's connections to porn. Stay tuned.
Schwarzenegger election to become porn film
WASN'T it just bound to happen? The story of the race to become the governor of California is being turned into a porn movie, Ananova.com reports.
One of the candidates in the race, adult actress Mary Carey, will soon begin shooting a sexy behind-the-scenes view of the campaign.
The two-hour picture will co-star porn veteran Ron Jeremy as California's current deputy governor, Cruz Bustamante, and muscle-bound X-rated actor Lee Stone as Arnold Schwarzenegger. Carey, 23, will play herself.
"It's kind of, like, satirical," said Mark Kulkis, president of Kick Ass Pictures, which is producing the film. "I think that Mr. Bustamante and Mr. Schwarzenegger will take it in the fun spirit in which it's intended because we're not being mean-spirited at all with this."
Don't bet on it.

Colin Farrell and the Gay Porn Star
Doesn't Colin Farrell look a lot like gay porn star Eric Hansen? Check out his starring role in Wash West's "Gluttony", an All Worlds Video.
This item comes from the SF Chronicle's Daily Dish:
Hollywood hellraiser Colin Farrell is being tipped to play sexy oil tycoon Bobby Ewing in the upcoming film version of soap opera "Dallas."
The hunky actor has reportedly been approached by the movie's producers, who are desperate to sign him up as the mild-mannered Texan, previously played by Patrick Duffy.
Now insiders are predicting that if the role of J.R. Ewing goes to Colin's "Hart's War" co-star Bruce Willis, Farrell will sign on too.
However, action man Willis faces stiff competition from fellow "A" lister John Travolta who is also keen to don Larry Hagman's famous Stetson -- and Colin may face outrage from fans of the show, who won't appreciate an Irishman playing the beloved Texan character.
