Porn pup Christian Owen has launched the Children’s Christmas Shoe Drive once again, with the help of Micky’s Bar in WeHo, and MaleMatch.net is helping out. Together the group is collecting new shoes to distribute to charities.
The effort has special meaning to Owen, who recalled that getting a pair of shoes as a child was always a highlight for him. This year, charities are particularly hurting, he said, so at the public appearances and guest dee-jaying he’s scheduled to perform over the next week, he’ll be encouraging people to drop off shoes or gift certificates at Micky’s on Santa Monica Boulevard.
My old friend and past GAYVN Awards judge Mark Kliem recently launched a project that he’s been passionate about for years: His personal collection of porn magazines and memorabilia is online now in its entirety at VintageBareback.com. The site gives fans a chance to see some of the really, really old stuff from magazines that no longer exist and porn stars long gone, created at a time when safe sex wasn’t an issue.
Kliem is a photographer and the founder of Lavender Lounge Studios. He owns about 400 porn loops on Super 8 and 8mm. Many of those are hosted on the site as well, or will be soon.
He says he took a projector and a film called Sex Salad to a party recently just to see the reaction, and guests laughed uproariously while watching three performers go at it with food. One sucked a cock wrapped in banana peels, and another received a blow job through a tomato. A clip from the flick is on the blog that previews VintageBareback.com.
- Cybersocket’s Morgan Sommer is teaming with Maleflixxx to promote February’s Barcelona Summit. The companies plan to encourage a lot of gay events for “focused businesses and open-minded partying.” In conjunction with the world’s largest mobile technology show, Jalif Studios will host its Infamous Live party at Barcelona’s leading gay venue and attendees will be invited to attend the Gay Carnival Parade and more.
- The snowstorm on the East Coast canceled the holiday party scheduled to occur last weekend at porn director Robert Prion’s house in New Jersey. Prion and Jay were willing to have their stable of guys hang around for the duration of the storm, but they decided the weather was just too dangerous for guests to travel through.
Bad weather or not, we’re sure the East Coast porn crowd is celebrating in one way or another. We hope the rest of the country is, too. Happy Holidays to all!
