Bloggers to Dish, Dissect Decade of Gay XXX

Bloggers to Dish, Dissect Decade of Gay XXX
JC Adams
CYBERSPACE — Thirteen gay adult industry journalists and bloggers are set to take part in a first-of-its-kind, multi-site "group-blogging" effort that will dish and dissect the past decade — the years 2000-2009 — in gay erotica.

The project was conceived by this author with a longtime industry editor and reviewer who goes by the handle Onan the Vulgarian at XXFactor.com. They saw a need for self-examination as the industry undergoes a period of retrenchment, and in particular as the current calendar year brings the decade to a close.

"Because it's 'only porn,' too much of this critical component of gay history is lost," Onan said. "This blogging project will help to provide a cultural and erotic perspective on where we were and whence we've come in the past 10 years, written by the people who have been paying the most attention."

Participants may discuss the decade's top performers or films, its most notable moments or significant trends. No limits have been set on format. Each blogger will then link to the websites of the other participants in order to stimulate discussion and drive traffic.

In addition to this author and Onan the Vulgarian, the participants are set to include veteran industry reviewers Mark Adams, Butch Harris, Vincent Lambert and Mickey Skee.

Additional participants include gossip columnist Billy Masters, promoter Jason Sechrest, performer-webmaster Nick Young, and webmaster Mark Kliem as well as the editors of Fleshbot.com, GayPornBlog.com and TheSword.com.
