9/25/15: Boy in the Sand:
b/t in Boys in the Sand – On roles in gay porn: [Peter] Fisk is darker than [Casey] Donovan and taller than Donovan and he’s bearded, while Donovan is clean-shaven. So Fisk clearly beats Donovan on masculinity points, and you’d expect Donovan to play the b role to Fisk’s t — but in fact Donovan controls the action in their scene, penetrates Fisk, comes first, and only then gets Fisk off, orally, so he’s straightforwardly the t.
