“I’m going to a galaxy far, far away,” Lupita told me with a laugh as the announcement was made in early June. As a child watching Star Wars for the first time, Lupita was intrigued by R2-D2 and C-3PO. “They just resonated with me,” she says. “Being able to convey emotions with just a few digital sounds—it speaks of good storytelling.” That storytelling is still holding her in thrall. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to be working in these fantastical realms,” she says. “They’re worlds away from 12 Years a Slave, that’s for sure—but that kind of diversity is what dreams are made of.”
FABULOUS NOBODIES- SISSYDUDE talks to JOHN SIMONE about his AWESOME NYC Party Photos! (via Daily Xtra)
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!
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.
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…

CHAOSMEN: Layton reminds me so much of Bay and Kristopher. Dirty Boy vibe, lots of tatts, and just oozing raw sex energy. Layton is 27 and has the calm confidence of someone who has tried all kinds of things. He identifies as straight, but it sounds like he has messed around with guys. I can’t say for sure, but it sounded like there might have been a couple drunken buddy moments. He does have a wide variety of friends, and seems to know a little something about everything under the sun. A great to have a conversation with.
Of course, you don’t just want to talk with Layton. There is that hot body to pay attention to as well! He actually shaved-off his pubes days before this shoot. After I had spent weeks verifying, with photo evidence, that he had his pubes pretty much intact. Grrrrr! Layton loves the camera, and his solo is definitely in the Elite category! photos via Scallyguy
HARD KINKS: Edu Boxer returns to porn after 9 years in his most extreme session with Martin Mazza. When the Police’s Supervisor receives a detainee he don’t expect any sign of defiance. When it happens it’s time to apply a strong corrective. WATCH PREVIEW HERE!

ALPHA MALES: Few tings feel better than an afternoon shower, the hot water washing away any tiredness, the lather mixing with your chest hair, the hand sliding all over your body… all very arousing. And what’s better than top a hot shower with a hot wank? Tom’s muscular hairy body is now dry and he’s back on his bed. He lays down and pick up where he left off in the shower. His hand runs up and down his chest, pulling on the hair covering it, his cock stiff if the other one. He plays with his whole body, lost in his own touch, squeezing his throbbing cock with both his hands till the urge of exploding takes over and he straddles the pillow, surely imagining, wishing there was a man under him, ready, waiting for him to deliver his sweet load. He works his shaft till he can’t hold no more and collapses back on the bed, exhausted.
UK NAKED MEN: Gio has an amazing physique. Lean and muscled, and naturally smooth. That is apart from his thighs and his butt, which is mouth watering hairy! His masculine dark latin looks shoulder with Bad Boy, and when you see that massive steel rod of a cock in action you instantly know why!
STARGAYZING: Barbara Cartland’s Album of Love Songs, Sung Especially For You is a thrillingly awful recording from 1978 that combines several things I love very much: bad prose, the singing voice of an elderly woman, orchestral music, and non-singers with big egos leveraging success in other mediums to create a vanity album, especially for you! In the case of this record, we have an eighty-year old English romance novelist whose tentative, tremulous soprano quivers and chirps like a small, wounded bird through some of the finest standards ever written. When she attempts to soar you can hear the panicked flapping of a single wing—”ascend, I say!” Throughout, Miss Cartland’s anemic vocals are ably supported by the massive Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, who were undoubtedly well-compensated for this recording. A voice this tentative backed by the Royal Philharmonic is the musical equivalent of using a pen light to guide an ocean liner and, indeed, half the fun of this record is the ever-present risk of icebergs!
