We warned you ahead of time about Folsom Street East street fair, which took place on Sunday and helped to kick off New York City’s Pride Week events.
If you’re the kind of person who likes rummaging through other people’s stuff or throwing money at eBay auctions where you aren’t entirely sure what you’re bidding on, then you’ll be excited about the return of the MIX Festival’s Celebrity Camera Auction.
In keeping with the theme of this weekend’s Folsom Street East in New York City, our friends over at Nasty Pig have all the dirty gear you need (and yes, you need those chaps with red piping), as well as some really cute butch bikinis.
Heralding itself as New York City’s only “S/M-Leather-Fetish block party” (obviously they haven’t been to our 4th of July BBQ), Folsom Street East is back this Sunday, June 17, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., for its eleventh anniversary.
“Real Urban Stories” is the second production from Real Urban Men, the newish line by New York’s Latino Fan Club, and includes much more full-on hardcore action than their usual offerings.
Many people think of Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” as a perpetually glamorous twilight world populated by rich ne’er-do-wells wearing dark sunglasses and diamond tiaras while they jump into fountains and chase each other around in expensive Italian sportscars. But it’s often forgotten that there’s an equal dose of bitter that goes with all that sweetness: the nights might be all about picking up prostitutes in your convertible and darting paparazzi and fountain jumping, but it’s that pervading sense of desperate melancholy that lingers once the sun comes up.
It’s a credit, then, to directors Michael Lucas and Tony Dimarco that their version of “La Dolce Vita” manages to capture that melancholy while adhering loosely to many of the plot details of the original. In fact, this may be one of the saddest porn movies you’ve ever seen. (And that’s meant as a compliment.)
According to the folks at New York Straight Men, Richie is a grad student at NYU who’s about to turn 25 on Christmas Day … and as an early present to himself us he decided to let NYSM’s Timmy suck him off for the camera.
Now that the downtown glitterati have dispersed following Michael Lucas’s ber-spectacular premiere earlier this week, it’s time to turn our attention to the less hyped (but equally splashy) 5th Annual Gay Sex Expo this weekend in downtown Manhattan.
From Pitbull Productions come two new DVDs to satisfy your mocha and cocoa cravings this season in case all that candy stuffing your stocking isn’t enough: in “Papi Got Flava,” lean, mean and tattoed Dillon returns (all eleven inches of him) to wear out the ever-game Jason Tiya.
A big, splashy,
massively hyped porn production requires a big, splashy New York City premiere—and that’s exactly what the crowd of downtown demimondaines and gay porn glitterati got last night at the premiere of Michael Lucas’ “La Dolce Vita” at the Soho Playhouse. We sent our own paparazzo Nikola Tamindzic to photograph all the pretty people (since we know you can’t get enough of looking at porn stars when they’re fully dressed) and professional party person and bon vivant Bradford Shellhammer contributed an exclusive party report. In the meantime, watch for our in-depth review of “La Dolce Vita”, which we’re working on as you read this and which we’ll post by the weekend; we would’ve had it sooner, but being the cinematic connoisseurs that we are we needed a little extra time to give at least two or three scenes a little, uh, closer scrutiny.
Gag on the bold faced names after the jump.
Hardcore bodybuilding groupies in New York are probably still bummed about the closure of the famous Johnny Lats Gym on 17th Street, formerly home to many of New York City’s top amateur bodybuilders, fitness models, and more than a few porn stars—but while the sweat-stained memories might be…
