Damien Moreau waits to catch a train in the cold when he spots fellow traveller Ryan Patrix across the platform. While exiting the train Ryan drops his hanky, provoking Damien to act out his voyeuristic perversions. The hanky becomes the conduit for Damien’s imagined desires, as he slips in and out of fantasy induced by the mysterious passenger.

Kelly Lovemonster
:

 “Pornography is the black sheep of entertainment. We all enjoy keeping tabs on the antics of our odd cousin porn, but no one really wants to be seen hanging out with porn. Intellect and adult entertainer Conner Habib’s recent essay “What I Want to Know Is Why You Hate Porn Stars” begins to explore the complex sentiments of desire and disgust our culture has in regards to pornography and the individuals who star in it.”
Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 7.37.15 PM
“Habib’s essay also challenges the idea that porn stars are victims. He writes that they should instead be regarded as artists who actively and consciously use their bodies to create work that they truly enjoy. I know, what a revolutionary and feminist idea. Enter conceptual queer performer and self proclaimed “ginger fantasy” Damien Moreau. Moreau is an artist and budding porn star who has performed in several BDSM films for kinkmen.com. In Moreau, one finds the perfect example of Habib’s porn star, one who uses sex as his artistic medium of choice.”
Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 7.37.37 PM

“Moreau and I chatted via La Internet about his journey into pornography, sex as art and his newest erotic short Kangourou. In it, Moreau blurs the lines between fantasy and reality manifesting a scene we’ve all played out in our mind’s eye. The short stars Ryan Patrix, Moreau, and one lucky hanky.”

“You are always so good at sharing your incredible place, thought I would share mine with you……… this was just in the Chicago READER, a weekly ‘alternative’ newspaper…. a different feel than your place, but think we have the same general ‘need’ for more, and an interest in mixing it all together so it makes sense (well to us anyway)……….always enjoy checking out your site…….”

best, keith

So I got that email from a Sissydude follower Keith recently and fell in love with clever Keith and his awesome space. So here are some images and a video from CHICAGO READER.
THANKS KEITH!

HOTARIOUS!!! IT’S STAR MAIDENS, BITCHES!!!

sm8

WIKI: The series presents a “battle of the sexes” and role reversal scenario in which two male domestics escape from the female-ruled planet Medusa and, arriving on Earth, are pursued by the Medusan security forces. When the Medusans fail to re-capture the two men, they bring two human hostages—a man and a woman—back with them to their home planet. The series’ 13 episodes concern the two groups’ attempts to adapt to life on the different planets while brokering an exchange for the hostages.

Speculum Orum-M. Lamar from M. Lamar on Vimeo.

Video artist, sculptor, countertenor, and composer M. Lamar, will be opening the fall season at PARTICIPANT INC with his first New York solo exhibition, NEGROGOTHIC, a Manifesto: The Aesthetics of M. Lamar. Most known for his music and performance-based work, this physical installation cross-references romanticism, surrealism, horror, pornography, gospel, metal, and early silent film to propose radical potentialities of blackness.

“I think this project comes at a particularly important moment, in which prevailing cinematic depictions offer only narrow historical accounts of subjugation.”Lia Gangitano recently said of M. Lamar’s work in Vogue IT

PERFECT SUMMERTIME VIEWING: ANTONIO DA SILVA’S CARIOCAS

cariocas_by_antonio_da_silva_23

CARIOCAS non-explicit trailer from Antonio Da Silva Films on Vimeo.

CARIOCAS by Antonio Da Silva

This is a voyeuristic hunt during my trip to Rio de Janeiro with lots of sea, sun, sweat and sexual encounters. Brazilian men care about their physique and they freely allow admiration of their sculpted bodies. The sensuality of those men creates blurry sexual identities.

cariocas_by_antonio_da_silva_17

An outdoors gym in the Arpoador area unveiled to me the vibrancy of the country and the diversity of men. Just behind the gym there is a gay cruising park. The gym crowd training during the day is very different from the one training at night. The film is a portrait of this shift while adding more Brazilian testosterone to this Summer’s football excitement in the country!

FABULOUS NOBODIES- SISSYDUDE talks to JOHN SIMONE about his AWESOME NYC Party Photos! (via Daily Xtra)

_itTwins-at-Copacabana_1988

_johnSex-and-Friends-at-Hairspray-Premiere-Party_1988

Sissydude: Photographer John Simone has two photo retrospectives happening during Toronto’s World Pride. The shows feature New York club culture icons from 1987- 1990. They include Rupaul, Kenny Kenny, Leigh Bowery, John Sex, Quentin Crisp, James St. James, Divine, The It Twins and of course “Party Monster” Michael Alig. Even Cher, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Sandra Bernhard pop up!

_leighBowery-at-Copacabana-Club-with-KennyKenny-and-charlesAtlas-in-background_1988

Simone left Toronto for New York in 1986 and immediately started working for Club-18 (The Roxy), Details Magazine (including Details’ influential nightlife column by Stephen Saban), Vanity Fair and The Village Voice. Of course the magic really started happening for him when friend Michael Alig appointed Simone chief photographer for his Project X Magazine.

_Lypsinka-at-MK-Club_1989

_michaelMusto-and-johnSimone-at-Tunnel-Club-for-jamesStJames-birthday_1987

I recently went to visit the very excitable and engaging Simone (above, pictured on the right, with Michael Musto) in his studio apartment in Toronto to get a glimpse of his gorgeous photos and talk, talk, talk about his subjects and his very interesting life during that time. Of course the magnificent creatures in the photos are what really gets him going…
