Well, maybe not exactly, but he is one of the retro pornstars that BUTT Magazine picked for the porn stash that will be available in ACE Hotel rooms. Their selection is like a crash course in porn history!
Joining Jack Wrangler will be other old stars like the original clone Al Parker and Rick Donovan. Also represented are new stars like Michael Lucas, Buck Angel, Blu Kennedy, and Fleshbot Crush Object Hall of Fame Inductee Arpad Miklos. Of course, those boys at BUTT picked some great films that show everything from S&M to 3D porn. BUTT will be unveiling the selection and holding some porn movie screenings at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club Palm Springs the weekend of November 6 to coincide with their pride weekend.
That means the ACE Hotels, which are in Palm Springs and New York (for now) will be the perfect place for the lonely gay traveler. Why wait to see some humping on Skinemax or try to rub one out with a complimentary bottle of lotion and a $20 straight porn movie when you can get off and get an education. The full list of movies and BUTT’s explanations, are below. If you haven’t seen all of them, well, then you know nothing about porn.
Born To Raise Hell (1975)
Described by legendary filmmaker Fred Halsted as ‘the best S&M film I’ve ever seen,’ this legendary gay S&M film by Roger Earl set the bar high for every leather daddy, ass-beating porn film that followed. According to one commenter on IMDB, ‘If you are a gay man who gets off on S&M and you have a choice between owning a copy of Born to Raise Hell or everything else that was ever produced in gay S&M porn, get Born to Raise Hell. You won’t regret it!’ The film stars Val Martin as a sadistic psychopath who picks up a young stud and takes him back to his sex dungeon. Martin then tortures his victim (and many others) with copious amounts of spanking, shaving, CBT, bondage, and pissing. Super sick and super hot, Born to Raise Hell is one of the few gay porn films that made it into the Museum of Modern Art film collection. Not for the faint of heart.
A Night At the Adonis (1978)
When Jack Wrangler wants something, he gets it. Except for his super-hunky, porn-stached co-worker Roger, who refuses Jack’s sexual advances and his invitation to go check out the latest Fassbinder movie. WTF? Luckily the Adonis gay porn theater on 42nd St. in New York has just opened its doors, and that’s where Jack and Roger both end up along with a horny bunch of trench coat pervs, suit-and-tie queens, hustlers, kept boys, and a foxy new manager who swears he’s just there to learn the ropes of managing the theater… This one has everything you could want in a classic gay porn – it’s fun, well-paced, charming, romantic, Jack Wrangler’s cock and cum loads are incredible, and there’s great ’70s period music including an amazing mirror image sequence with Big Bill Eld set to Isaac Hayes. The film was directed by the master of narrative gay porn films, Jack Deveau, and filmed on location at The Adonis, one of the most famous Times Square gay porn theaters (sadly demolished in 1990).
Al Parker’s Inches (1979)
BUTT has long been obsessed with legendary ’80s porn star Al Parker, whose gorgeous bearded face, girthy cock, and ferociously sexual appetite were unmatched in the history of gay porn. Inches is one of Al’s best films, with a simple and logical narrative: Al is happy in his long-term relationship, even though his partner prefers jerking off in the shower while Al beats one out in the bedroom. When Al’s boyfriend breaks up with him, Al goes out to play the field and make up for lost time. The hottest scene has to be the one where Al picks up a hitchhiking Buck Stevens and the two pull off to the side of the road for some hearty cocksucking. Al’s cumshot is truly breathtaking.
The Bigger The Better (1984)
This is probably the best selling gay porn film of all time. Rick Donovan, a Joe Dallesandro look alike with a huge, thick, meaty cock, just can’t help jerking off when he’s actually meant to be studying under his teacher’s watchful eye. When the teacher catches him, Rick bends him over the desk and fucks him every which way he can.
The next day, Rick, hungry for more, winds up in the college bathroom, jerking and blowing guys through a glory hole, one by one. It’s one of the most iconic films in the history of porn. Truly ravishing!
The Pizza Boy: He Delivers (1986)
‘One of William Higgins’ absolute masterpieces. I love the blow-dried hair and the tennis boy looks. The film has a very fresh look overall but also some super hot, downright dirty scenes. My favorite part is a crazily exciting ass-fuck scene on the kitchen counter between one very hairy client and one very smooth pizza delivery boy. In general I think it’s important that the people who have sex in porn don’t look like each other, because if they do look like each other, as seems to be in a lot of gay porn, they tend to merge into one person and then it becomes masturbation and thus pretty boring. The more different the better, I say.’ – Gert Jonkers, editor, BUTT Magazine
A Young Man From Nantucket (1998) and Solosexual (2003)
‘There was a young man from Nantucket, whose dick was so long he could suck it…’ So begins the not-quite authentic limerick that inspired the title of underground porn filmmaker and auto-fellatio godfather Al Eingang’s first feature. Al’s story is a classic rags to riches tale: back in 1988, Al was just a horny but mild-mannered gay guy who liked conceptual art and had one very special talent: he could suck his own dick. He made a film to showcase his talent and sent a copy to Honcho magazine, which gave him a worshipful review. Al’s been making solo-suck porn videos ever since. His most recent feature, Solosexual, is one of his best sellers and it contains a lot more ass-play to go along with the self-suck action. If you’re into watching guys suck their own dick, this is the film to beat. But caution: don’t try this at home…at least not without a spotter.
Hooked on Hispanics (1990)
‘I found this movie in a New York City trashcan in 1996. I was young and gay but had nothing to jerk off to, so I treasured this movie and shot loads to it for the next three years before I gathering the courage to buy my own porno. If you like Latino guys with massive uncut cocks, and if you’re into campy porno plots and setups, you will be very happy with this selection. The film starts with real TV footage of drug busts in late ’80s New York, and then introduces us to a young man whose crack addiction is tearing his family apart. Luckily for everyone, there’s a brand new drug rehab facility in town: L.I.C.K.I.T. (Latinos In Crisis Keeping It Together.) The facility is packed with gorgeous Hispanic men who love oral and foreskin chewing. In terms of production values this might not be the most well done porno, but it holds a special place in my heart, and captures the look of a certain type of ’90s porno guy I used to love. It’s also one of the earliest films from the amazing NYC porn studio Latino Fan Club and spawned many sequels.’ – Adam Baran, contributing editor, BUTT Magazine
Skin Gang (1999)
Skin Gang brings together two of BUTT’s favorite contributors: legendary art/porn director Bruce LaBruce, (the man behind the queercore movement and films such as Hustler White and No Skin off My Ass) and Slava Mogutin, the Russian poet, photographer, and porn star who entered the US as the first person ever admitted for asylum based on homosexual persecution. This film was pretty controversial when it was released, due to the fact that it’s about a gang of skinheads (one of whom is played by Slava) who all like to fuck each other’s brains out. The opening shot featuring a skinhead jerking off onto Hitler’s Mein Kampf had many in the adult film industry saying it was in bad taste – which is always high praise in our book. The scene where Slava bottoms for the Nazi skingang is something you won’t want to miss.
BUTT Magazine Selects: Lucas Entertainment Favorites
There’s nobody more controversial in the gay porn industry than Michael Lucas. Fiercely driven, he went from hustler to impresario of one of Lucas Entertainment, one of the most successful gay porn companies in history. We don’t always love his films – in fact, we had a spirited debate about them during his interview in BUTT 18 – but he can be very good at getting hot guys to do new and interesting things. The first scene from Gigolo (2007) features two of the hottest porn stars working today: Hungarian Arpad Miklos (photographed for BUTT 24) and Zack Randall, a boyish deaf cutie. It’s seldom that you see two people in a porn connect with as much passion and creativity as Zack and Arpad. The second scene from Wall Street (2009) features Ben Andrews, who Lucas claims has the biggest dick in gay porn. Ben takes a subway ride and ends up swapping blowjobs on a late night train, filmed completely undercover. Shocking! Next up is a bonus watersports scene between Zack Randall and Michael Lucas from The Intern (2007). The set up is simple: Randall starts pissing on himself, then Lucas drinks from the piss stream, then he spits it back into Randall’s mouth, and then Lucas pisses into his own mouth and spits it back into Randall’s. Yum!
Men’s Room: Bakersfield Station (2004)
Who says all the good sex happens on the internet? This film is set in a spacious truck stop men’s room where truckers stop to drain their veins and then chow down on each other’s sausages. An adorable nerd peeping tom and other hot tearoom types come to join in the wild group action. 30 years after he became the most well-known and influential gay porn director in the world for directing classics like El Paso Trucking Company, Heatstroke, and L.A. Tool and Die, director Joe Gage (interviewed in BUTT 19) has created the film version of many people’s wildest sex dream.
Take Em Down (2004)
Take Em Down stars Tiger Tyson, the hottest Blatino star in the thugporn genre. Tiger’s pairing with the massively endowed Supreme (11.5 inches) and bottom Boi Pusee helped make this film one of the best selling ‘ethnic’ gay porn films ever made. There’s not much of a plot to speak of, just a series of setups between hot, horny, down-low thugs. Tiger Tyson smiles with the eagerness of a horny schoolboy every time he’s about to get naked with one of his boys. He also always makes putting on a condom seem incredibly sexy (Tyson is a vocal safe-sex advocate). He also rescues pit bulls, raises finches, races cars, and claims to be bisexual in his personal life.
Buck Off! (2006)
Buck Angel was fast on his way to becoming a big time female supermodel when he decided to change his sex and became a hot cigar smoking daddy. He describes himself as ‘the man with the pussy’ and by his reckoning, he’s the only female-to-male transsexual porn star in the business. He actually looks so much more like a rough and mean daddy top than most ‘macho’ porn stars, despite the fact that he has a fully functioning vagina. In this film Buck eagerly takes on four men of different body types, races, and ages. Featuring a soundtrack from L.A. performance sensation Jer Ber Jones. Check out BUTT 19 at buttmagazine.com to read our interview with Buck from 2007.
Essentially a porno movie version of Donatien Veissman’s Homopunk.com webzine, Homopunx features hot French and German guys having sex while wearing bunny ears, makeup, dresses, strange masks, and other funny costumes. Somehow the movie pulls this off by being very refreshing, sexy, funny, and not at all pretentious. Brice Peter stars as a hot French visitor who moves into an apartment where horny Deutsche boys make cookies by pressing dough into their anuses – a recipe for trouble if there ever was one. The end of the film has all the guys gathered after a shoot, getting messy with cakes and other treats. It’s definitely nuts, but it’s also one of the few films in a long time that make you perk up and take note that someone is trying to do something a little different and smart – and hot at the same time.
