Industry people had kept Michael’s personal drug habits away from public knowledge, but the secret spilled when an SF Weekly reporter recognized the genitally-gifted porn star in a courthouse: “‘I’m scared,’ [Michael] whispered. He was shaking.”
That was a year ago. In the meantime, while waiting for Michael’s comeback, I’ve been watching him deliver a steaming load of cum to his scene partner’s mouth in Guys Who Eat Cum. Below, Michael talks ankle bracelets and coke on porn sets. Read the full interview here (it’s on page 82.)
Gloss Magazine: I love your court-issued ankle bracelet.
Michael Brandon: Thanks! It goes with everything. [Laughs.] It actually comes off tomorrow, thank God! I am so relieved to have this all finally behind me.
GM: So what the fuck happened to you?! Last time I saw you I thought you were holding it together.
MB: I relapsed again. And it got really ugly. By the end of it, I was holed up in a dirty hotel room a few blocks from my house, too fucked up to even find the door knob. It was a dark time for me. I needed help and I got it – from the men in blue!
GM: You kept getting busted for drugs, but you kept doing it — Why?
MB: I got hooked. At that time, when I was shooting porn, there would be lines of cocaine out and waiting on set. It was easy and available and encouraged. I was young. And I was lonely I think.
GM: Are you reluctant to go back to porn now?
MB: I am not going to be in front of the camera again. I’ve promised my partner that. But I would like to take the brand and move it forward in a new direction — maybe producing or directing…
GM: Any advice to guys thinking about doing porn?
MB: Treat it like a business, not as a trick. sobriety is sexy.
More Than a Porn Star (Gloss Magazine, page 82)
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.
