Yes, we know it starts Thursday and doesn’t really end til Monday, but
what do you take us for — a sixty-seven year old meth head? We need our sleep.
N.B.: We’ll update the page with links and pictures, in association with the degenerates at Fleshbot and Gay Porn Blog as the weekend goes on,
so bookmark this fool. We certainly aren’t wearing these nipple clamps
for our own amusement.
UPDATE: International Mr. Leather 2008 Day 1: Somewhere A Herd of Cows Is Shivering
Friday, May 23rd
Raging Stallion at the Shoe
The Lucky Horseshoe Bar
You might wear short shorts, but leave the Nair at home. The fur will
fly at the Raging Stallion Benefit Party in Boystown when twelve of
Raging Stallion’s hottest exclusives raffle off ass and prizes to
benefit the TPAN (HIV testing and support) network. Enjoy worry-free
your whoring while stirring your drink with the cotton swab from your
Tim and Roma Show: Grabby’s Edition
3458 N. Halstead
The inimitable Sister Roma blows a calvacade of stars, including Jesse Santana, Aaron James, Vinnie D’Angelo and, if you’re willing, you. No, seriously.
Folsom Prison Premiere Party
Hyatt Regency Chicago
Crystal Ballrooms B&C
10PM – 2AM
Don’t tase me bro! Thousands of perverts are expected to converge on
the normally staid Hyatt Regency to see Titan Media’s latest
piss-you-pants fright-fest, Folsom Prison. The hardcore trailer for the movie looks like a
Frontline special on a sex club at Abu Graib, but then again we sort of expect to see John Stossel stationed in front of the lobby of the Hyatt Regency with a camera crew and an outraged American for Truth.

Bear Bath and Beyond Sex Party
3246 N Halsted St.
It’s noon and you’re covered in last night’s dose of Deckard? Why head
back to the hotel to shower when you can head to the Chicago outpost of
the Steamwork’s bathhouse for another roll in the heyyyyyy with a
special Bear Bath and Beyond Party (part of Bear Pride’s Woofstock
IML “Pecs and Personality” Judging Contest
Hyatt Regency Chicago, Grand Ballroom
151 East Wacker Drive
Honestly, we’re always at the Grabby Awards during this second judging
event (the Opening Ceremony on Thursday initiates the process) for
Sunday’s International Mr. Leather Contest. It’s like the talent and
onstage question portions of the Miss America Pageant, except with jock
straps and very, very hairy ladies.
The Grabby Awards
322 West Armitage
Unlike other more staid award shows, the Grabby Awards are like a giant
party where the battling over awards takes second place to drunken
bathroom oral. Obviously, we’d all like to win Hottest Bottom or
Hottest Cock, but most attendees will be happy just for a chance to
feel up the winner. We’ll be ogling trophy studs Dean Flynn, Jake
Deckard and Trevor Knight (who we seem to remember retiring about this
time last year) and getting ogled by hosts Chi Chi LaRue and Honey West
— if we’re lucky.
You’ve been in Chicago for two days, have had access to the most
sexually aggressive men in the hemisphere and still haven’t gotten
laid? FOR SHAME! Luckily, Rentboy.com throws this annual military
themed dance party in Boystown. It’s twenty bucks at the door, but you
might want to bring a couple hundred more if you want something a
little more specific.

Grabby Recovery Brunch
The North End
Kim Kardashian has nothing on porn star host Cort Donovan’s rotunda,
but there’ll be plenty other thigh candy at this afternoon binge. Blake
Riley and a dozen other stars stumble in from the night before to press
your flesh (and accept the free shot you’re buying them), answer
questions and do an endless stream of exotic dances to keep you from
heading to home, or to rehab.
International Mr. Leather Contest
Hyatt Regency Chicago
East Tower Grand Ballroom
151 East Wacker Drive
Evidently Miller Lite wasn’t so scared off from the scandal that
erupted last fall over their support of Folsom Street Fair, because
their sponsoring the 30th Annual Mr. Leather Contest this weekend.
We’re not sure what we’d stick up our asses otherwise, because
Heineken’s bottleneck is really too short and stubby to be satisfying.
We may be getting a zero score in the “Leather Image” portion of the
contest, but you can’t say we ain’t got spirit!
Bear Pride Nuts-To-Butts Dance
632 N. Dearborn St.
We’re not sure the Exclalibur club, located in a Romanesque Revival
mansion in Chicago’s River North neighborhood has ever seen anything as
large and sweaty as Bear Pride’s Nuts-To-Butts Dance Party, but if any
building can handle the march of the mastodons, it’s this granite-clad
behemoth. Of course, we’re totally supposed to be on a plane by then,
but we do love a buffet …
Grabby Award Nominations 2008
It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
