WATCH: Video of Colton Ford’s single ‘Let Me Live Again’

Colton-FordIn this week’s edition, we have a story about adult film actor Colton Ford and his efforts, at 50, to establish a music career. We say we really like the album. And actually, you can make a decision about it yourself. After the jump, watch the video. It’s catchy and edgy and leather-daddyish … perfect for a Wednesday morning.

Concert Notice: Perfume Genius at Dan’s March 26

I recently posted Perfume Genius’ provocative video for “Hood,” which featured him being dolled up by a hunky porn star. It’s pretty hot, but also fascinating. Although I doubt adult film star Arpad Miklos will be joining, PG will bring his elegant indie pop to North Texas this spring. Perfume Genius (nee Mike Hadreas) is set to play in Denton at Dan’s Silverleaf March 26. Tickets are $10 in advance and $13 at the door. The show is presented by Spune.

In this video, he delivers a quiet performance of his 2010 song “Lookout, Lookout.” This should give you an idea of his live show.

Good news for those who really, really like adult film star Mason Wyler

Mason Wyler may have quit doing adult films full time, but he still knows how to give a good tease. And for just $50 a month, he’ll back it up. Wyler tweeted today that if you’d like to talk to him on the phone or even hang out, that now you can! On his website, he’s posted all the information you need to get started to make him your new BFF, but with a price tag. It’s a pretty innovative way to make some extra cash and we only figure it’s to help pay his tuition as he heads back to school at UNT per our conversation this past June.

When you join his Members Club for $49.99 a month, you’ll be privy to all of his new services, which are shown after the jump. And although there are no pic after the jump, I’d play it safe as NSFW.

BEEFCAKE WEEKEND: Porn stars to pack ‘em in

Samuel Colt, left, and Chris Porter
Ricky Sinz

Maybe you could call it ironic that the weekend before Fat Tuesday, Dallas is being inundated with lots of muscle. It also gives those gays who head down to Cedar Springs something to repent during Lent: Lustful feelings will be top on the list.

Over at The Tin Room, Men magazine’s Man of the Year for 2010, Samuel Colt, pictured top right, joins real-life boyfriend and fellow adult film star Chris Porter, below right, for two nights of booty-shaking deliciousness. They will make a joint appearance starting at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Also on Saturday, hot star and multiple GayVN Award winner Ricky Sinz, pictured below, will make his Dallas bow with an appearance at TMC: The Mining Company. You can get your photo taken with the sexy hunk beginning at 11:30 p.m

Samuel Colt and Chris Porter at the Tin Room, 2514 Hudnall St. March 4 and 5, 11 p.m.—2 a.m.

Ricky Sinz at TMC: The Mining Company, 3903 Cedar Springs Road. March 5, 11:30 p.m.
