On my X Blog, an illustrated piece on gay men offering their bodies for anal intercourse — mostly as bottoms, but sometimes as tops. Thoroughly X-rated.

An image posted by actor/director Chris Pratt on his Facebook page:
The initialistic abbreviation BJ stands for Beijing here, but of course blowjob will come first to many people’s minds — even though then the t-shirt should go
And there are more possibilities; it’s in the nature of abbreviations to be multiply ambiguoua.
Another “out of the corner of the eye” misreading, from the front page of the NYT yesterday (July 1st). What I thought I saw was the teaser head
A Love Tested by Catamites
As I tried to imagine how the story went, I focused more carefully on the page, and saw the head
A Love Tested by Calamities
And then I wondered about the history of catamite.
(Warning: about gay porn, with frank discussion of men’s bodies and man-man sex; the X-rated images are on AZBlogX, but a couple of the ones here skirt the line. In any case, not for the kiddies or the sexually modest.)
On my X Blog, in “Wrapping themselves in the rainbow flag”, a Gay Pride sale at Channel 1 Releasing (well, an excuse to advertise four of their most recent releases). For whatever reason, all four of the images there have the men as receptors rather than insertors — as phallophages in a general sense, two per os and two per ano.
The actors: in #1 (from Daddy Issues), Kyle Kash as a Boy (admittedly, hairy and muscular, but definitely a Boy) in a Daddy-Boy scene; in #2 (from “Chokin’ on Cock”), Joe Parker in an absurd multi-suck scene (three at a time!); in #3 (from “Folsom Flesh”), Joe Steele, in a harness and a sling, getting porked by a leather dude; and in #4 (from “My New Step Brother”), Austin Jordan fellating in the family.
I’m interested, in general, in how pornstars are presented in these movies, how their fantasy relationships are framed (everything from raw, context-less sex to bonding for love), how the encounters are structured, and how language is used in these encounters. You can get only a bit of this from still shots, and it’s gotten harder than it used to be to get information about the actors and the films; the field is crowded with low-grade professional porn and enormous amounts of amateur porn.
Here I’ll focus on Kyle Kash, who leads off the ad and is in fact wrapped in a rainbow flag for the season (the rest merely have rainbow PRIDE! insignia on the images).
In the AZBlogX shot, Kash is displaying his muscular hairy ass (plus some dangling testicles), glancing back over his shoulder at the viewer, in a shot that screams BOTTOM. And indeed, though he’s a relative newcomer to the porn flick world, he’s been around the bottom block a whole lot of times already: in Daddy Issues, with Scotty Rage — in a cropped photo:
Taking Dmitri Kane in a different sexual position (mounted on him), in Before a Shower (also cropped):
(With open-mouthed ecstatic pleasure in both shots.)
And bottoming for at least the following men in other films: Brenner Bolton, Trenton Ducati, John Foster, Kip Ryker.
Then there’s his rentboy in L.A. site, which features his ass in the first photo of the set and emphasizes its virtues in the text:
Very open-minded and non-judgmental guy here looking to fulfill your fantasies and take you on an adventure. I have a tight, muscular, defined body (workout 7x a week), a large 7.5″ cock and an amazing ass.
I’m available for dinners, companionship, events, etc. I’m very chill, discreet, sweet, and caring. I will treat you like the amazing person that you are. I know how to have a great time and would love for you to join me.
(It’s all about the dinner conversation.)
On the other three actors, very briefly. Three different types:
Joe Parker: billed as gay-for-pay, mostly a top – lean and ruggedly masculine
Colin Steele: raunchy, leather muscle pig, into barebacking, and usually a top
Jordan Austin: framed as a young straight boy who discovers gay sex together with his new stepbrother
Something for everybody at Pride Time.
(Warning: this is a posting, often in very plain language, about gay porn flicks, the actors in them, their bodies, and the sex acts the pornstars engage in. Visually not X-rated — those images are on AZBlogX — but far from innocent. Not for the kiddies or the sexually modest. There’s a fair amount about language in there, but there’s a lot to offend the sensitive.)
Unearthed on my desktop, this playful cock-tease photo of the engaging Christopher Ash (a.k.a. Tony Bendanza and Tony Bandanza):
A word about how the photo got onto my desktop and why I’m posting about it now.
Then about Ash, body types, and sociotypes, and the porn flick Guys in Heat.
(Warning: some frank talk about sex here.)
In the NYT on the 13th, a news brief from Washington, “F.D.A. Proposal Would End Ban on Blood Donation” by Sabrina Tavernise. In its entirety, with the crucial phrase boldfaced:
The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday released its proposal for scrapping a decades-old lifetime ban on blood donation by gay and bisexual men. The proposal was criticized when it was first announced, in December, because men who have had sex with men in the last 12 months would still not be allowed to give blood. The limited prohibition is comparable to rules in many European countries, but critics said it did not take into account modern diagnostic tools that can detect H.I.V. infection as early as nine to 11 days after exposure. The contested part of the proposal remains unchanged in Tuesday’s version, which details the policy and is open to public comment for 60 days before a final decision. In a nod to transgender Americans, the proposal allows donors to report their gender; under current policy, eligibility is determined strictly based on a donor’s sex at birth.
My comments here are not about the substance of the policy (for the record, I agree with the critics of the new “limited” prohibition), but about the interpretation of “men who have sex with men”: what, exactly, do people who use this expression mean by “have sex with”, and how do those who hear it or read it understand it?
It turns out that the interview protocol the FDA uses doesn’t ask about “having sex with” another man but about “having sexual contact” with another man — but without explaining what that expression means.
I’ve been in this territory on this blog before, about “having sex with” versus “having sexual relations with” someone in questionnaires.

Oh my: the verb pork, the verb pull, the verb rub, all available with sexual senses.
(Some frank talk about (gay) sex, but no X-rated images. Not a lot about language, but some.)
Over on AZBlogX, I’ve just posted on cumshots (images of ejaculation) and (gay) cumfaces (photos of men with ejaculate on their faces). The last of the photos showed a happy cumfaced Dirk Caber (a gay pornstar), and I threw in a full-frontal picture of Caber as a bonus. Now for some non-X material about the man.
