Talent agent and male madame David Forest’s legendary press releases have been introducing, re-introducing, re-re-introducing, and re-re-re-introducing gay porn stars to the world for decades, but it’s the press release re-re-re-re-introducing gay-for-pay gay porn mega legend (and doting father of two!) Jason Adonis that has earned Madame Forest the 2012 Swordie for Press Release of the Year.
For those who haven’t been closely following the Jason Adonis saga, he has retired and unretired and retired from gay porn 689689235790 times since his first movie in 2002, and even Forest himself has called Adonis “difficult” in one of his previous unretirement press releases.
Here’s David Forest announcing Jason Adonis’ most recent retirement, in 2011:
Mr. Adonis has abruptly ended his long career in the adult entertainment business. Unfortunately, I’ve dealt with [Adonis] since late 2002, when I first approached him about being available for some MEET THE STARS private meetings AND a few LIVE appearances. He ended up aborting the first 2 LIVE bookings…I had to eat the airfare money AND got no commissions. The story began then…ending with tonight’s Micky’s cancellation. One of the worst things was his initial Falcon Studios deal, which I initiated … in mid-December of 2003. […] He didn’t last more than 6 months with them.
He has actually had his phones disconnected and isn’t returning any emails. How dramatic. What an uncool way to go out. […] Oh well he never should have asked me to “bring him back” (early June). I knew he was DONE last December. Over the years he screwed me up with many cancelled LIVE appearances and he messed up several studios. He will go down in gay porn history as one of the hottest, could have been huge, bitter, screw ‘em but they still want him back, flaky, strange characters the adult world will ever have known. He was married, with a child, over the entire aprox. 10 years of his adult ent. career. AND, in the end he asked me to get him the Micky’s gig and he didn’t even have the courtesy to call or email me and tell me he wasn’t doing it. I should have known, from the first time he cancelled a live gig 8 years ago that he wasn’t an honorable person.
And, here’s the Swordie award-winning press release from this weekend announcing the return of Jason Adonis. Congratulations, David Forest!:
Good-looking in a way that gay men swoon over, gay adult superstar Jason Adonis was a natural for porn and fit right in when he made his first movie in 2002. Now, after ten years (10), JASON ADONIS has worked for every top studio including COLT, Falcon, AMG, Blue Blake and last year, Raging Stallion Studios put him in a scene for Tony Dimarco’s “Brutal,” the studio’s big porn blockbuster movie for 2010. The reaction was great … he then did scenes in RS’s “Animus” and “Demascus.”
Jason is a total star that didn’t get comfortable with being an adult icon AND a straight Midwest father until NOW.
Finally…after ten years! Is this the moment you’ve been waiting for?
He finally realizes that he loves doing the movies … he loves the attention he gets. He’s a sensational LIVE performer and gets off pleasing crowds, yet, has really only done shows in Chicago, NY/Boston and a few cities in Florida. He needs to make up for lost time. He wants to do club gigs all the time. AND …his private meetings are always successful and he enjoys meeting his fans that way. He’s overcome the paranoia that clients are all out to get him.
And to help him keep everything positive, coordinate his movies, live shows and private meetings so he makes the most money possible, having the best fun … but being concerned, always, about quality, customer satisfaction and fan and industry approval. Forest does these same chores for ZEB ATLAS and new star, CHASE STEVENS. The Forest management operation is called: www.ThePremiereArtists.com. The Private Meetings are booked by www.MeetTheXXXStars.com.
Jason will continue living in the Midwest with his growing family (2nd child is a pure delight). He’s available, immediately, for ALL areas of adult work. The LIVE shows he’s been doing in NYC and Chicago will continue. The clubs he hasn’t worked should contact us for November, December & January dates. Jason packs them in wherever he appears. AND … his price is always reasonable. Private clients have been waiting, patiently, for Jason to be ready to enjoy “fan appreciation meetings.” And, now he does. Contact me TODAY!
