For Mothers Day

(Talk about mansex in street language, so not for kids or the sexually modest — or, for that matter, Facebook the Prudish.)

From the TitanMen gay porn studio, for Mothers Day this year:

(#1) Cropped ad; the full ad can be viewed on AZBlogX, in the 5/12 posting “Mothers / Muthuhs Day 2018”

That’s Dirk Caber and Daymin Voss in New Rules: two hot muthas, and muthas — a variant of the vulgar slang mothers, a clipping of the vulgar slang motherfuckers, an epithet that can be either deprecatory or (as here) celebratory — is the link to Mothers Day.

So we end up with gay porn for Mothers Day — a holiday I’m now tickled to think of, alternatively, as Motherfuckers Day. Or, possibly, Samuel L. Jackson Day, for the great cinematic motherfucker-wielder.

As a bonus, half the men in the cast of New Rules are not only mothers / muthuhs, but also daddies, in one of the gay senses of daddy:attractive older gay man’. In fact, they’re muscle daddies.

The front cover of the DVD of New Rules, without dicks, but just barely:

(#2) Back cover, production details, and ad copy on AZBlogX

Caber and Rivers are experienced porn actors, Knowles and Voss are younger and newer. All are muscle hunks, but Voss (black, hairy, and inked) is a truly huge bodybuilder type.

From AZBlogX:

In New Rules, all four men are hot muthuhs (for Mothers Day), but Caber and Rivers are also (muscle) daddies — not in daddy – boy relationships, but older, more experienced men paired with younger men (Priapus with Apollo). The scenes in New Rules run through all the combinations: the younger men (Knowles and Voss) together, then Caber with Voss and Rivers with Knowles, then the older men (Caber and Rivers) together.

The motherfucker family. The very short story, from NOAD:

noun motherfuckerNorth American vulgar slang 1 a despicable or very unpleasant person or thing. 2 a person or thing of a specified kind, especially one that is formidable, remarkable, or impressive in some way: that cover photo proves he is one talented motherfucker | it’s a scorching, swooping, diving, all-out motherfucker of a record.

noun mother: 2 North American vulgar slang short for motherfucker.

A bit more detail from GDoS:

noun mother 5 (also motha, mothah, mudder, mutha [also muthah, muthuh]) as abbr. of var. senses of motherfucker n. (a) a derog. term for a person. [1955 on] … (c) an unspecified object or situation. [1961 on] (d) something exceptional. [1968 on] (e) (US black) an affectionate [address] term used between men.

And then from Wikipedia, with more historical and cultural context:

Motherfucker (sometimes abbreviated as mofo, mf, or mf’er) is an English-language vulgarism. While the word is usually considered highly offensive, it is rarely used in the literal sense of one who engages in sexual activity with another person’s mother, or his or her own mother. Rather, it refers to a mean, despicable, or vicious person, or any particularly difficult or frustrating situation. Alternatively, it can be a term of admiration, as in the phrase “bad ass motherfucker”, meaning a fearless and confident person.

… The word dates back at least to the late 19th century. In an 1889 Texas murder case, a witness testified that the victim had called the defendant a “God damned mother-f–king, bastardly son-of-a-bitch” shortly before his death. A later Texas court opinion from 1897 prints the word “mother-fucking” in full. and in 1917 a black U.S. soldier called his draft board “You low-down Mother Fuckers…” in a letter.

In literature, Norman Mailer, in his 1948 novel The Naked and the Dead uses it occasionally, disguised as motherfugger, and used it in full in his 1967 novel Why Are We in Vietnam?. It appears twice in James Purdy’s 1956 novella 63: Dream Palace. In Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Slaughterhouse-Five the word is used by one of the soldiers in the story – leading to the novel being often challenged in libraries and schools. Vonnegut joked in a speech, published in the collection Fates Worse Than Death, that “Ever since that word was published, way back in 1969, children have been attempting to have intercourse with their mothers. When it will stop no one knows.”

(This entry us worth it just for the Vonnegut quote.)

A highlight in motherfucker history, from Wikipedia:


Up Against the Wall Motherfucker, often shortened as The Motherfuckers or UAW/MF, was an anarchist affinity group based in New York City. This “street gang with analysis” was famous for its Lower East Side direct action and is said to have inspired members of the Weather Underground and the Yippies.

The Motherfuckers grew out of a Dada-influenced art group called Black Mask with some additional people involved with the anti-Vietnam War Angry Arts week, held in January 1967. Formed in 1966 by painter Ben Morea and the poet Dan Georgakas, Black Mask produced a broadside of the same name and declared that revolutionary art should be “an integral part of life, as in primitive society, and not an appendage to wealth”. In May 1968, Black Mask changed its name and went underground. Their new name, Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers, came from a poem by Amiri Baraka.

And then a notable example of black-affiliative motherfucker (GDoS 5(e)), from Jamie Foxx:


On Foxx, from Wikipedia:

(#5) The versatile Foxx, still physically fabulous in his 40s, here shirtless and unzipped

Eric Marlon Bishop (born December 13, 1967), better known by his stage name Jamie Foxx, is an American actor, musician, singer, songwriter, producer and comedian. He won an Academy Award for Best Actor [and other awards] for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 biographical film Ray.

Lots of movies and music beyond that.

#4 is at the positive end of motherfucker‘s affect scale. The master of the negative end, hands down, is Samuel L. Jackson, whose movies are peppered with the epithet used scornfully. As from Pulp Fiction here:


From Wikipedia:

Samuel Leroy Jackson (born December 21, 1948) is an American actor and film producer [and civil rights activist]. He achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with films such as Goodfellas (1990), Jungle Fever (1991), Patriot Games (1992), Amos & Andrew (1993), True Romance (1993), Jurassic Park (1993) and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino including Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Django Unchained (2012), and The Hateful Eight (2015). He is a highly prolific actor, having appeared in over 100 films…

… During childhood, he had a stuttering problem. While he eventually learned to “pretend to be other people who didn’t stutter” and use the curse word motherfucker as an affirmation word, he still has days where he stutters.

The daddy bonus. Back in New Rules — remember the porn flick we started with? —  all four pornstars are hot muthuhs, but Dirk Caber and Dakota Rivers are also (muscle) daddies: muscle daddy = muscle-hunk + daddy ‘older man (esp. an attractive one)’. Some discussion in the 3/15/18 posting “Cumshots from muscle daddies”.

I’ll take up the uses of daddy in the gay male social world in another posting. But, briefly, there’s the use above, to refer to a category of gay men; and then there are uses to refer to one side of a daddy / boy relationship (see this Page on this blog); and there are relationships between older and younger men that lie entirely outside of daddy / boy practices: these turn on the pairing of adult experience (Priapus) with youthful enthusiasm (Apollo) in a generally egalitarian relationship.

Daddy / boy practices, in contrast, place responsibility on the daddy to care for the boy (or boi, to clarify that children are not involved) and often to supply other benefits to him (material or status rewards), in exchange for companionship, submission or obedience, or specific services (including sexual services). So there’s a range of tones in such relationships, going from something like concerned friendship through a kind of guardianship to a type of master / slave relationship or a form of male prostitution.

More to come.
