A pantheon of porn stars, as expected, were out in force. The parties kicked off with Falcon’s event at Qbar, where we hung out with Erik Rhodes and his bf Anthony, the Jarics, Roman Heart and bf Benjamin Bradley, T.J. Hawke and his girlfriend, and drag superstar DJ Juanita MORE!, along with special guest Michael Lucas. Steve Cruz had an event for his website HowIRoll.com at local designer/consignment shop Sui Generis.
The men of Titan packed them in at Harvey’s while the men of Raging Stallion partied hard at The Edge, with an all-star To the Last Man DVD signing next door at Does Your Mother Know?, while Barrett Long signed his signature dildos at Auto Erotica and got shitfaced with pal Diesel Washington at Moby Dick’s. Over at 440, the Bel Ami boys got edged out to the street by all the bears, but fans crowded around them for DVD and autograph signings.
The men of Jet Set, including Chris Steele, hung out with drag queens Jules and Motha Chucka at The Mix, while the Porn Team boys with Pierre Fitch got messy across the street at the Midnight Sun. Dirty Boy Video brought in fans at Twin Peaks with the help of a little Latino boy who bounced on a trampoline outside in his undies. And Elite Male brought the Visconti Triplets for their first taste of America at Lime, along with King of the Bottoms Mason Wyler.
Finally at the Lookout, the men of Hot House (including Ty LeBoeuf, Kyle King and Ethan Wolfe) brought in big crowds at the end of the evening, and Brent Corrigan took pics with fans at the back bar–where he told us he really doesn’t appreciate our work here at The Sword and made us promise never to call him a cumbucket again. Below, our complete album of pics.

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.
