Greetings From Granada

I admit, Granada is not the most obvious city to choose for your long saved-up for gay holiday. It’s, in Southern Andalusia, a typical example of a provincial town. That sounds a lot less swinging than Madrid and Barcelona, or party island Ibiza. But, like Maastricht in Holland is a great location for a few days’ visit, Grenada is too. And the gay facilities are decent.

Porn DVD Review - White Buttboy Captured By Horny Brazilian Indians

Whoever’s focused a little bit on the porn industry will have noticed that more and more American producers choose to produce part of their films in Brazil and with Brazilians. This is not something that just happened overnight though, because someone like Kristen Bjorn had discovered this location years ago. This also goes for an admirer of his work, the pornographer Alexander, who’s originally from Russia, lives in San Diego and works largely in Brazil.

In Memoriam - Paul Wierks

‘Now I Disappear From The Screen...’
Passing Away Of Paul Wierks Marks The End Of An Era

In the first half of the eighties I got to know Paul Wierks, at first just as a barkeeper but after a few years more personally as well. I had discovered the Warmoesstraat and after visits to the Cockring and the Argos I also found the Eagle, which had a wilder, hornier reputation than the Argos where S&M in those days often seemed to stand for “Stand and Model.”

Letter from Brussels - 198 Casualties of Anti-Gay Violence

Dear Northern Neighbors,

The message was in one of our Flemish newspaper at the beginning of this year. Last year 198 people in Brazil died of homophobe aggression. 198 casualties. Just fewer than 200, as if that makes a difference. Figures from our country are not known. Statistics rather focus on something else instead on homophobe violence. Belgian statistics on anti-gay aggression vary, depending on the source.

The US Navy has relieved an aircraft carrier captain of his command over the production of lewd videos on the ship. The videos featuring Capt Owen Honors were apparently made in 2006 and 2007.

Coffeeshop Downtown now also closed

From the first of January 2011 Coffeeshop Downtown closed its doors.

This was the smallest and last of the total range of gay businesses that brought the Reguliersdwarsstraat fame for decades. Downtown never had anything to do with selling marihuana, it has always been a classic coffeeshop and lunchroom.
