Vatican City: Pope Benedict XVI Blesses Porn Actors
Gay Star News reports that Ill Papa recently blessed two gay porn actors who appeared at the Vatican in priest drag.
The Pope has been tricked into blessing two porn actors and a video of the moment is set to be included in a new Bel Ami gay movie. That’s according to famous gay porn producer and Bel Ami founder George Duroy who annouced the news on an online forum. The new film, Scandal in Vatican, is going to be released in September. It is the story of a couple of young priests, dressed as Catholic clerical students, who enjoy their sex experiences in the little country in the heart of Italy’s capital, Rome. [snip] Scandal in Vatican will also see a football match in piazza San Pietro, the Vatican’s main square. The Italian press think that the Vatican could sue the company and ask for compensation. And the Italian pink press writes that the Bel Ami actors could become the new Pussy Riot, the pro-gay Russian punk rock band who were recently jailed for a anti-Putin protest in a church.
Gay Star News notes that photos with the Pope appear on one of the actor’s Facebook page, but those images appear to have been removed.
Bel Ami Sues RSVP Vacations For Cruise Incident With Models In Tunisia
RSVP Vacations is being sued by Bel Ami and several of its models for hiring them for a cruise and then dumping them in godforsaken Tunisia.
According to court documents filed in California, nearly a dozen Slavic Bel Ami porn stars were hired by RSVP to “mix and mingle” with passengers on a gay cruise through the Mediterranean. Bel Ami maintains the models were told to keep the fact RSVP hired them on the down-low, “suggesting that the young men should lie and say the cruise was a ‘reward from Bel Ami for their hard work’ if anyone asked.” In exchange for providing the talent, RSVP told Bel Ami it could film the models frolicking non-sexually around the ship.
But rumors started circling before the boat even left port and, when the boys attracted too much attention, RSVP allegedly kicked them off the Nieuw Amsterdam, stranding them in Tunisia.
At the time, Tunisia was in the aftermath of the tumultuous civil uprising that became known as the Arab Spring; an uprising so powerful that it led to the removal of long-time President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. The protests constituted the most dramatic wave of social and political unrest in Tunisia in three decades and resulted in scores of deaths and injuries.
With RSVP supposedly holding their passports and belongings hostage, the models had no choice but to comply. Ironically, the Nieuw Amsterdam was just one day away from Italy, an EU member nation that would have allowed them to easily return home to Hungary and the Czech Republic.
Instead they spent a sleepless night in Tunisia, with no contacts, no resources and unable to speak the language.
Bel Ami and the models are suing RSVP and Holland America cruise line for breach of contract, fraud, intentional interference with contract, negligence, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
This isn’t the first trouble RSVP has had in the Muslim world: Just a few weeks ago, a planned excursion to Morocco was canceled for reasons that remain unclear.
Industry insiders are reporting across Twitter that famed gay porn star Erik Rhodes died of a heart attack this morning at the age of 30. Rhodes was a prolific blogger and frequently wrote of his heavy usage of both club drugs and bodybuilding steroids. With a chilling coda, Rhodes’ final Tumblr post cited his most recent steroid cycle.
Gay porn actor Dror Barak, 38, was found dead of an apparent suicide in his Manhattan home earlier this week. A former member of the Israeli military and once an employee at the United Nations, Barak, who performed under the name Roman Ragazzi, was outed as a porn performer by a New York City tabloid in 2007. I wrote at the time:
In a seemingly pointless move, the New York Post’s Page Six gossip column has outed an employee of the Israeli consulate at the United Nations as a gay porn actor, after tricking administrative worker Dror Barak into revealing his sideline career as a “model” and budding porn actor. Although Barak specified that he did not escort, he did solicit a plane ticket from Page Six’s source. Page Six then called Barak at the U.N., asking to speak to “Roman Ragazzi”, Barak’s porn handle. Barak immediately resigned his position with the Israeli consulate. Page Six published the exchange today, including revealing Barak’s BigMuscle.com profile name.
Former Sean Cody Porn Star, Jason Andrews (aka Addison), Pleads Guilty To Murder
The Advocate reports:
A former porn star has pleaded guilty to murder and been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. AVN reports that in order to avoid the death penalty Jason Andrews, 28, admitted to his part in the brutal stabbing and bludgeoning murder of 41-year-old tattoo shop owner Dennis “Scooter” Abrahamsen following a sex party in May 2010. Andrews’s alleged accomplice, 28-year-old adult film performer Amanda Logue, had reportedly been hired by the victim to have sex with him on camera. Police in Florida say the pair killed Abrahamsen and took off with $6,000 cash, his credit cards, and a video camera. They were first arrested for trying to use Abrahamsen’s credit card at a Florida Home Depot on May 18, 2010. Authorities didn’t have enough evidence to connect them to the killing, and they were released. Andrews appeared as a gay-for-pay model on SeanCody.com in 2008 under the nom de porn Addison. Logue will be tried on murder charges in May. Read more here.
His videos (NSFW) remain available for viewing despite this. (Not that I’m complaining).
Anderson Cooper Show: Famous Porn Star Sperm-Donor Is Also A 36 Year-Old-Virgin
We weren’t the only ones simultaneously grossed out by and fascinated with human DNA factory Trent Arsenault—the prolific DIY sperm donor who happens to be a prolific amateur porn star. He’s going to be on Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show tomorrow, where he’ll admit to being a 36-year-old virgin with more than a dozen kids. In this preview clip, Arsenault, who’s been under fire from the FDA to shut down his one-man sperm bank, reiterates that he’s a “donorsexual”—that is, all his sexual energy is devoted to donating sperm (and populating his Xtube site with videos of himself masturbating into a cup). “I don’t have other activity outside of that,” he said. “I will probably be the 40 year-old virgin but I will have 15-plus kids.” Don’t you love science? ABC is really milking (ahem) this Trent Arsenault thing. Last week they published his special blueberry “fertility smoothie” recipe in honor of a 20/20 appearance. Maybe next week they’ll give him a cooking show.
