Michael Lucas’ latest movie in Europe, “Paris…
For January, I want you, for February…
Yesterday bought us a list of the Top 15 16 Bearded Pornstars … and because one good list deserves another (and because we love big dicks), you may as well have a go at this amusingly annotated list of the Top Ten Huge Dicks In Gay Porn as well, especially since it not-so-coincidentally happens…
One of the things we like to daydream about when we think of Fleshbot Crush Object™ Ben Andrews is spending a quiet evening at home with him watching America’s Next Top Model and sharing a whole pint of Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk together. (Why not?) However, Ben lives way too far away from us to make that dream a reality—not that he returns our phone calls anyway—and we really don’t need to be eating any Ben & Jerry’s products if we’re going to fit into that tiny silver spandex number when the White Party rolls around next year. So what’s a lonely and besotted porn fan to do?

Other than “Can’t Stop The Music” and “Miami Vice”, I’d never seen a gay film before. (I don’t count “Brokeback Mountain” as a gay film because if you can’t get it through your head that that film is Just About Love then there’s no saving you.) So upon receiving a copy of heartwarming gay porn insta-classic “The Intern”, I had some hard questions for producer/star Michael Lucas and writer/director Tony DiMarco, primarily about how the movie was supposed to make me feel.
Read our conversation after the gap.
Perhaps to make up for the fact that we had to wait until “The Intern” was half over before we got to see him take his clothes off, the adorkable Ben Andrews sits down with our resident videographer to discuss his recent comedic star turn and how the whole idea for the movie came about after we and a couple of other blogs noticed how sexy he looked in the glasses he wears when not on the porn set: “I just said it jokingly to (“Intern” director) Tony that we should do a movie called ‘Ugly Benny’ because everyone likes my glasses and it evolved from there.” Given Lucas Entertainment’s recent legal squabbles, we can understand why they changed the title somewhere along the way—but we’re eternally grateful to Ben for keeping his specs on for us during at least one of his sex scenes in “The Intern”. After all, it’s always nice to see a porn star actually listen to use when we tell them what we want to see more of, no matter how twisted and dorky it might be.
We might as well go ahead and admit it: We tend to have problems when porn tries to be something else besides just porn, and with porn comedies in particular. Most porn manages to be funny enough without any additional effort on a scriptwriter’s part, and besides, if we’re in the mood to laugh we’ll pop in, say, a French and Saunders DVD instead of a dirty movie.
But unless you have a fetish for overweight British commediennes (and we are so not judging you if you do), it’s hard to jerk off to a French and Saunders DVD. So where does this leave Lucas Entertainment’s much-ballyhooed “The Intern”, billed for months now as “an intentional porn comedy”? Read our review after the jump.
It’s a good thing that Lucas Entertainment keeps reminding us in its press materials that “The Intern” is an intentional sex comedy; otherwise, we might have thought that Michael Lucas really does act like a demanding over-the-top diva all the time. Good thing it’s only a movie!
What do you get when you put together a bunch of drag queens and half-naked go-go boys (including pornstars Ben Andrews and Aaron King), load them into a 1990 Chevy Schoolbus, and take them on the road? The mind reels at the possibilities, but we have a feeling we’re all going to find out.

We just can’t get enough of Official Fleshbot Crush Object™ Ben Andrews, so it’s a good thing that after swooning over his sexy-nerdy charms (and other talents) on the set of “The Intern” a few weeks back, we stumbled across two virtual Ben sightings this weekend.
After his blink-and-you-missed-it appearance in “Michael Lucas’ La Dolce Vita” and a turn in the otherwise negligible “The Bigger The Better”, we’re glad that Lucas Entertainment is finally giving Official Fleshbot Crush Object™ Ben Andrews the star vehicle he deserves.
Given the recent legal brouhaha regarding his pornified update of “La Dolce Vita”, you’d have thought that Michael Lucas could have come up with an original title for his latest big dick extravaganza instead of
ripping it off borrowing it from one of the most popular and best-selling gay porn titles of all time. Still, there’s not much risk in confusing “Michael Lucas’ The Bigger The Better” with the dearly departed Matt Sterling‘s classic 1984 feature of the same name: where Sterling’s film has earned its staying power over the years through a series of truly hot and memorable fantasy scenarios, Lucas’ “TBTB” ends up being fairly standard porn fare featuring a handful of decent if not especially memorable scenes, maybe because they look like they were all shot in the same apartment. But the several yards of monster cock on display (including a welcome return to the blue screen by 90s porn legend Johnny Hanson) will still go a long way towards satisfying even the most voracious size queens out there—even if we have to admit that it’s the adorably scraggly new chinstrap beard sported by Fleshbot Crush Object™ and new Loehmann’s model Ben Andrews that really left us wanting more. It’s almost cute enough to make us forget to drool over his beefed-up bod and that slab of meat hanging between his legs. Almost.
