Google Doodle for March 13, 2017

Holi Festival 2017
Today, the Google letters are taking on a fresh set of colors in honor of the Holi Festival. Coinciding with the arrival of spring, the vibrant celebration looks a lot like the Doodle: people run around happily covering each other in a rainbow of powdery hues.

Amid the cloud of red, blue, yellow, green, and everything in between, festival-goers can often be found laughing, singing, and dancing in the streets. The joyous event, which takes place in India, Nepal, and other countries around the world, traditionally marks the triumph of good over evil. It also gives family and friends a chance to simply come together, enjoying a spirited “Festival of Colors” that undoubtedly lives up to its name.

History's 125 Hottest Gay-Porn Stars:

He is big, it's the dirty pictures that got small
Chad Hunt 

You don't have to hunt too hard for Chad's calling card, which at 11" might as well just be slung over his shoulder or thrown around his neck and worn like a scarf. He did dozens of movies in the '90s as a daunting top before bottoming in 2008, the same year he left the biz. In person, he's completely nice and not at all intimidating. He's a single dad, too, something we often forget about our porn stars—their money shots sometimes hit the jackpot.

Nash - Fratmen

"When Fratmen Nash decided on a whim to do a jack-off video for Fratmen he was a proud Nebraska Cornhusker wrestling champ. Little did he know the impact he would have on Fratmen, his college wrestling career or the college sports community as a whole. If you haven't seen the coverage of Paul Donahoe on ESPN, then you will enjoy him for who he really is: an extremely handsome, muscular, well-endowed natural athlete with a killer smile. Amazing sexual stamina, too!" -- Fratmen

Porn Studio GayPatrol Features White Police Raping Black Men Labeled “Spear Chuckers” And “Darkies”

From: Str8Up Gay Porn
With the proliferation of so-called “fetish” porn and all the sub-genres of adult content online, it’s unfortunately not a surprise that there is yet another gay porn studio using racial slurs and stereotypes to depict a minority group. But the amount of racism disguised as “fetish” porn featured on new site GayPatrol is still insane, almost making all the “thug” porn studios look complimentary of black men.
GayPatrol.com—a studio based entirely on the premise of racist white police officers arresting and then raping black men—appears to have launched late last year, and a reader recently emailed to point out one of the studio’s latest scene write-ups. In it, the black character is referred to as a “spearchucker,” a “bald black motherfucker,” a “blackie,” and a “stupid darkie”:
If you’re black and reading this, do us in law enforcement a favor – DON’T FUCKING RUN! Just because Jesse Owens could out run the white man doesn’t mean you can. Is your life really worth risking over a $16.99 t-shirt for some bitch your fucking? No, but this spearchucker today thought so. How stupid can you be? Someone called the cops about a bald black motherfucker shoplifting. When we approached you, you ran. When we searched you, you had girls clothing tucked inside your hoodie. Come on bro, not even the Trump administration is that stupid. So we busted this bald blackie and took him back to one of our secret spots.  We used our cracka cocks to convince him that stealing dumb shit is a dumb idea. Thank god the darkies ain’t all stupid and know that the easy way, is always the better option for all involved.

In another update, the black performer is labeled a “black son of a bitch,” a “coco puff,” and a “delicious piece of chocolate” who speaks using “oogie boogie talk.” At least they called him “delicious.”
Dumb, criminal activity, in the middle of the day – oh you better believe some black son of a bitch was doing it. Sure enough, we pull up and a delicious piece of chocolate is behind the wheel driving recklessly. Enjoy your face time with the concrete coco puff. This criminal, in particular, had quite the mouth on him. “Fuck the cops”, “cracka ass”, oh it was salty chocolate at first. Now, these types of criminals always talk a big game. They hard, they gangsta. Well those gangsta dicks get nice and hard when given the opportunity to take the easy way out by letting some white chocolate have a little fun with them. All that aggressive oogie boogie talk goes silent when that big black dick is deep in cracka cop ass. I hope our little darkie friend learned his lesson, but something tells me we’re going to have another meeting with this black snowflake who does whatever he wants.
“Black snowflake”? Who knew Tomi Lahren was writing these scene descriptions. Trailer, which also features the slur “chocolate bitch”:

Someone will probably argue that all of this could be considered satire, but satirizing something this horrific can unintentionally normalize it (just look at how our current president was elected after being made fun of on late night comedy television shows for years), and this studio normalizing racism in the form of “fetish” porn shouldn’t be tolerated, especially by an industry that’s supposedly about inclusion and equality (even though it’s actually not, of course). And, for what it’s worth, I don’t think this is satire, which usually requires some amount of irony. It’s just eroticizing racism, which is as lazy as it is wrong.

The inclusion of police violence and rape is obviously another issue. With white police brutality and the literal murder of unarmed, innocent black men making real-life headlines every day, who is supposed to feel good about jerking off to this?

There’s a niche and a market for everything, and studios know that the more offensive you are, the more attention you get (as evidenced by this post). But there’s a much shorter lifespan for trash like this than there used to be, and today’s gay porn viewers (especially younger, more socially aware gay porn viewers) will not accept it, let alone pay for any of it.

GayPatrol is run by a production company based in New Jersey called SkywireCash, which operates several other gay and straight studios glamorizing racism, including “Arabs Exposed” and “Fuck You Cracker.”

Photographs that Pick Apart Gay Archetypes of the 1970s

A current show of Hal Fischer’s photography at Project Native Informant confirms a renewed interest in gay life in the 1970s.

 In a scene of William Friedkin’s movie Cruising (1980) Al Pacino, who plays a straight New York officer who is under cover to investigate a series of murders linked to the gay S&M scene, goes in a sex shop. Puzzled by a display of colored handkerchiefs, he asks a sales assistant what they are for. The obviously bored reply is a very detailed one: “A light blue hanky in your left back pocket means you want a blow job; right pocket means you give one. The green one: left side says you’re a hustler; right side you’re a buyer. The yellow one: left side means you give golden shower; right side you receive.”

The hanky code discovered by this fictional officer was in a fact widely used in the US during the 1970s by gay men looking for casual sex. Men with colored hankies in their jeans pockets could be spotted in numerous gay clubs and in the streets of major urban areas.

Around that time, Hal Fischer, who had moved from Chicago to San Francisco to study photography and was getting involved in art criticism, was experiencing the vibrant gay community of the Castro and Haight-Ashbury districts. In February 1977, Fisher started to work on a series of black and white photographs documenting the “signaling devices found in the gay community”, as he later described his research. Combining images with text and captions printed into the photographs, Fisher consciously employed semiotics (the study of signs and symbols) to deconstruct some of the codes used by the San Francisco gay community to find and select sexual partners:

Traditionally western societies have utilized signifiers for non-accessibility. The wedding ring, engagement ring, lavaliere, or pin are signifiers for non-availability which are always attached to women. Signs for availability simply do not exist. In gay culture, the reverse is true. Signifiers exist for accessibility.

The resulting series of photographs is often witty, with a subtle irony coming from the contrast between the erotically charged nature of the pictures and the clinical style of the captions, reminiscent of a medical book.

After describing in great detail the meaning of a red handkerchief, the author feels the need to warn his readers that “red handkerchiefs are also employed in the treatment of nasal discharge and in some cases may have no significance in regard to sexual contact.”

 Fischer’s self-described “Jewish humor” involves a good dose of self-criticism, and critique of the very methodologies of semiotics itself, which by the late 1970s, had been well embraced by artists and academics.

Fischer’s pictures were first exhibited in San Francisco’s Lawson de Celle Gallery in 1977, and then published by Los Angeles’s Cherry and Martin the following year, in a book titled Gay Semiotics. The publication was successful and had a wide circulation back then, but once it went out of print, it became a rarity, until a second edition was released in 2015. In the meantime, the pictures had been included in exhibitions at MOCA, Los Angeles, and SFMOMA, San Francisco.

The current show of Fischer’s photography at Project Native Informant, in London, includes different bodies of works from that period and confirms a renewed interest in gay life in the 1970s, the hedonistic pre–AIDS crisis era characterized by sexual freedom. A further sign of a resurgence of interest in Fischer’s work is the recent music video for the song House of Air by Australian musician Brendan Maclean, which went viral on YouTube before it got removed. The clip unapologetically borrows Fischer’s aesthetics, adding color — both literally and metaphorically — to it.

A series of portraits of men exemplifying what Fischer calls “archetypal gay images” is also included in the show. In this series, the photographer identifies five basic archetypes, derived from the erotic imagery established in gay magazines, connecting them with specific elements of American culture. If the origins of some of these are almost clichΓ©, like the “cowboy prototype,” some others are less immediate. For instance, Fischer links a “natural prototype,” illustrated by an attractive naked man surrounded by conifer, with the American folk tradition. In particular, he mentions the 19th century idea of a virile individual in communion with nature that is expressed in literature by Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, and Mark Twain, and in figurative art by Thomas Eakins.

 Following a similar intention, some pictures illustrate the gay street fashion of men hanging out in Castro, revealing a great deal about gay subculture. While these portraits today may remind one of the street style photography of fashion blogs or American Apparel ads, their main source of inspiration is, quite evidently, August Sander’s ambitious project People of the 20th Century. Adopting the rigorous documentary approach of the New Objectivity, the German photographer famously spent decades, from the early 1920s to his death in 1964, taking an exhaustive visual record of German people, from beggars to industrialists. People of the 20th Century became an invaluable document of pre-Nazi Germany, its portraits divided into categories meticulously showing, in the words of its creator, “all the characteristics of the universally human.” With little textual information — the only indications about the people portrayed are in the titles which name their profession — the photographer invites one to read the images through the clothes and poses of his models.

In the same way Sander travelled around Germany looking for human archetypes, Fischer went out in the street looking at his friends, identifying different types coded through clothes, from the “forties funk” to the “hippie” and the “uniform man.”

(1977, printed 2014),
 carbon pigment print, 24 prints in handmade case with denim covering, each print:

 Fischer is very generous in labelling every prominent element in the look of these types: the satin gym shorts of the “jock,” the boots of the “leather,” and the Levis jeans of the “basic gay,” which all contribute to shape the different characters. Poses are also telling: there couldn’t be more difference between the flirty attitude of the “jock” and the hyper-masculine posture of the “leather.” Keeping a levity that never fails to make the work enjoyable, sexual identities and desires are thus collected, anatomized, and classified.

Gay Semiotics never intended to be a complete catalog of gay archetypes. It is, rather, a celebration of a delimited group of people acting in a particular time and space.

Fischer gave up photography in the early 1980s and although he has been asked to revisit his project, he has refused. Documents are pertinent only if they relate to a defined experience. Yet, it is the nature of signs to shift in significance.

Approaching today’s gay communities — anywhere in the world — with intentions similar to Fischer’s would be a fascinating exercise. The expanse of meaning always waits to be unfolded.
