The Peter O'Toole of porn

(Editor's Note: due to a throbbing headache last night, a draft of this was posted without being complete. Below is the edited and complete post.)


Yesterday, I got an email from my buddy, photographer Walter Kurtz, with the subject line: "You're the Peter O'Toole of porn", which made me laugh. The body of his email was only a link to Cybersocket's recent article: 40 AMAZING PORN STARS. I'm not on the list. Mr. O'Toole has the distinction of receiving the most Oscar nominations without winning. I've not even been nominated! And Peter O'Toole is a much better porn name than Bryan Slater.


I'm thrilled to see my porn buddies Mike Dreyden, Nick Moretti, Owen Hawk, Tim Kruger and Ludovic Canot on the list. Congrats, boys! (I would like to make out with each of you now, please.) But I have to say, it seems a shame not to include people like Race Cooper and Chris Porter, both of whom burst onto the porn scene in a spectacular way and were recently signed as new Raging Stallion exclusives. It's also baffling not to see super sexy Samuel Colt (um, Unzipped's Man of the Year! Hello?) on this list. Oh, well. Everyone's entitled to their opinion. Even Peter O'Toole. Therefore, I'm giving my list (in no particular order) of some people to watch. Keep your eyes on them.
  • Mike Dreyden - Cybersocket got this one right. He's fucking EVERYWHERE! Watch him. He's just getting started.
  • Aiden Shaw - We haven't seen or heard the last of this sexy and talented man.
  • Michael Brandon - Ditto! Like Aiden Shaw, he is of the Madonna School of Resilience and Reinvention. They both transcends lists. Especially this one.
  • Race Cooper - He's pushing boundaries, y'all...and he looks so adorable in his glasses!
  • Chris Porter - He's young, he's hot and he's surrounded by the best porn mentors in the business.
  • Colin Steele - Okay, try...just try to stand next to him and be noticed. You can't. He is giant hotness.
  • Tom Wolfe - Sexy, smart and a great sense of humor.
  • David Anthony - Oh. My. God.
  • Dionisio Heiderscheid - He may just end up ruling the whole industry.
Look! I didn't even make it on my own list!

Honestly, I didn't get into this industry for awards or lists. My focus is on the journey. If my journey ends up being half as interesting and colorful as Peter O'Toole's, that's an award I'll happily receive.
