LOS ANGELES — Gay adult superstars Erik Rhodes and François Sagat appear for the first time together on the September issue of Unzipped magazine. They are also paired in the Falcon Studios sexpic "Ringside."

The fan-favorite performers "interview each other about their experiences on the set of 'Ringside' — including their famous fisting scene, an epic clip not included in the movie that has already received tons of attention online," a magazine publicist said.

"Getting Erik and François together was an unexpected aligning of stars and planets — we didn't think it would ever happen," said Troy Prickett, director of promotions for Falcon Studios.

"The pairing of the two has to be one of porn's best this year; they are absolutely dynamite together."

The September '09 issue of Unzipped is themed "Sex and Travel" and spotlights gay adult actors "from around the globe," the rep said.

Features include travel spotlights on Las Vegas and Berlin. The mag also includes "new, top-level international advertisers" such as the Berlin Tourism Board and Axel Hotels.

Unzipped magazine recently made news for its August edition pairing adult performer Ricky Sinz with comedian Margaret Cho, the first woman and the first celebrity to appear on the cover.

"Last month's cover was a bit of a departure for us, and we're continuing that trend by covering sexy travel destinations," said Rick Andreoli Unzipped Media executive editor.

"Add to that our cover story on Falcon's sensational pairing of François Sagat and Erik Rhodes, plus our feature on the hottest international porn stars, and I think you'll find an issue that's exciting, informative, and entertaining."
