This is the first in Dominic Ford’s “Gym Fuck” series. I shared the second in the series last week, so I’m a bit out of order, but you can find them all at Dominic Ford anyway.. There are a pair of work out videos that accompany each of the sex vids, filmed by the stars in the scene. This week, Shane Frost and Parker London take us through an upper body workout. Parker shows us his routines for chest, biceps and triceps. Shane takes us through lats, pecs and shoulders.And then Shane shows us (in a very different way) how to work out his ass! It evidently involves a lot of stretching!
Cocksure Men has been consistently producing some great content lately. Between directors Jasun Mark and John Tegan and producer Jake Cruise, you’re getting some quality sexin’ on the pages of CM.
One of the best scenes to come along recently has been a threeway between one of my all-time favorite performers, Conner Habib, starring alongside Cocksure exclusive Morgan Black and beautifully built and furry Heath Jordan. Mind you, this scene debuted in February… and I’m still yankin’ my chain to it on a regular basis.
Heath is an example of the kind of performer who has one of those stacked bodies the studios love, but he eschews the “smooth muscle” image they employ as often as he can. This young man is furry, and he looks damn good when he goes au naturale and lets his pelt fly free. His body is a one-two combo for fans of muscle-worship and fur-love. It’s obvious that this fresh-faced young cub is going to age into a devilishly handsome bear.
Conner is a great example of what a man should be. Smart, fucking sexy, and completely without airs. His horny, intelligent, playful persona is no act. He’s literally just as horny in real life as he seems on camera and he’s completely owns it. But, I guess telling you that is a bit redundant. I mean, he is having sex for a living, after all. His above-average intellect is just the cherry on top of his sexual sundae.
Morgan is my image of what sex personified would be. A little rough, hairy in all the right places and with a soul and energy as warm and as passionate as the sun itself. I know I’m not the only one who picks attributes in performers and wishes we could find them in our search for partners in real life, but I don’t just want someone who emulates Morgan. I want Morgan.
All three of these men are cut from a similar cloth. Each unique in their own way, but threads of raw sexuality and genuine delight in the rugged male body bind them together.

I’ve mentioned them before, but I’m a true fan of the collective video event that has come to be known as The Black Spark. They grabbed headlines months ago when their sexual video vignettes full of trippy visuals and backed by music tracks hit the blogosphere. What they had created was not only aesthetically pleasing, but was timed perfectly for consumption. By being tailored to fit the length of a song (usually 3-4 minutes) what they had given us was far shorter than a full-feature video, but longer than a 60-second clip from some tube site featuring a cumshot. Many of the original videos they’d uploaded to XTube have been replaced or retired, but thankfully, they now have their own website from which to share their creations.
Part of what makes the videos so appealing is that there’s not a sense of outside interference in the direction. These guys are shaping the narrative exactly how they want to, others be damned. Much to the viewers’ delight, their editing skills offer a fresh take on some familiar imagery. Sure, we’ve all seen cocksucking and cumshots, but never quite like this.
The real credit to the ability of the Black Spark has been taking something universal, sexual and personal, and making it fresh to view again. It’s not that porn has become stale, but let’s face it, every once in a while, we need to be shocked out of our complacency. Porn has become a part of so many people’s routine, it’s nice to inject a fresh perspective into what we’re watching.
One of my favorites, Sun’s Gone Dim and the Sky’s Turned Black:
The unfortunate side-effect of internet fame is the detractors who want to cut that fame in half, if not outright take it away. I’m fully aware that not everyone will be a fan of this kind of erotica. If our interests were homogenized, there would be no need for creativity in the first place. I have, however, found it quite interesting that some of the loudest critics of the Black Spark’s videos have come from within the gay porn industry itself. On one hand, it’s not surprising at all; but on the other, failing to find some kind of synergy between public interest in the Black Spark and ciphering that excitement to one’s own product is a missed opportunity.
I’m not insinuating that every studio begin their own sub-par knock-off series of Black Spark-style videos, but still, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. The sheer volume of public interest proves that people are willing to try new things when it comes to porn consumption. The tried and true formula doesn’t need to be changed, but the options that are out there need to be broadened.
At a time when safe-sex awareness is at an all time high, it may seem subversive for the Black Spark videos to seemingly glorify raw sex and cum-swallowing. But this is where the comparisons to porn can get a little murky. What these guys are creating is indeed intended for public consumption and conversation, but the primary players in the videos are not being paid to do this. This is not pornography as we’ve come to define it. These are real guys, who want to show their very real sex life in a unique light. The message that guides the Black Spark is one of lust.
Whereas condoms are a staple of my own sex life, the charged eroticism of these videos does not inspire me to ditch them. If it inspires me to do anything, quite honestly, it’s just to beat my meat a little faster.
Introducing Seven Spark
I haven’t spent much time dissecting the actual players behind the masks and behind the cameras, because many other blogs have done just that. The message that prevails every time is that the videos are less about identity and more about sexuality. We, as viewers, can project onto the mask whatever we like.
The final thought I’ll leave you with is the Black Spark National Tour. It’s quite an ambitious undertaking for a movement that is still effectively in it’s infancy. However, if they manage to pull this thing off, I have a feeling that the Sparks will be more than just a flash in the pan. Cultivating a fan base like this could be huge for their future endeavors. I have no doubt the Black Spark will continue to evolve over time, but they won’t be fading from memory so long as they keep delivering these mouth-watering compilations.
