James Franco and Straight People Making Gay Films: King Kobra

Update: Brent Corrigan commented on the film and gave a few thoughts on Facebook with a public announcement. As usual, he did it well. 

I don’t know how else to title this part of the post. In this case what I did use is clearly not my best clickbait, however, also in this case…it is what it is.

Gay content/dramatization is big this year and some straight people are taking full advantage of it.  

The recently announced Christian Slater/Molly Ringwald film King Cobra, though it also plans to dramatize a piece of gay history, will likely offer no such inspiration.

That’s because it will tell the story of gay porn studio Cobra Video owner Bryan Kocis’ murder by two of his stars, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes (pictured above right), in 2007. Naturally, James Franco is involved, taking a producing and acting credit.


But there are a few names I haven’t heard since God was a proverbial boy… good old Molly Ringwald and Christian Slater.

They have a Disney twink playing the Brent Corrigan part.

Kocis’ involvement and subsequent legal battle with a then-underage Brent Corrigan, aka Sean Lockhart, added an unhealthy dose of scandal to the already-insane story.

You can read the rest here. 

I think we’ll be hearing more about this and I am curious to know what Brent Corrigan thinks. I follow him on Twitter and he’s a very nice, quiet guy who seems to be an avid equestrian. I hope someone interviews him.

Nude Locker Room Life

On a much lighter note, here’s a video about how the NFL Network aired a nude locker room scene.

Albert Breer’s NFL Network interview with Adam Jones after the Bengals’ win over Buffalo today was… interesting.

All you really need to know is that the NFL GameDay Live staff couldn’t stop laughing about it afterward. Butts and dicks herein. 

I guess if the NFL Network aired this it’s SFW. You can check that out here.  

Guys and Their Relationships to Porn

I love that Queerty continues to post these meme articles. I think they sum fascinating topics up so well they could be used as exercises in blogging for the more verbose bloggers out there.

This one is about how guys often both embrace and scorn adult entertainment.

Here’s one…

I’m gay but I’m really grossed out by gay porn. Does that mean subconsciously I hate myself? Ugh…

Here’s another…

As a gay guy I hate that I’m so immune to porn that I have to look for more taboo stuff.

You can read the rest of them here. It’s a really good example of how various guys feel about adult entertainment and I would imagine it’s basically the same for straight people…men and women.
