Stearns, who became popular on the site Boyride.com , impressed veteran director Jim Steel with his enthusiastic work ethic and voracious sexual appetite.
"I have been doing this for so long," director Steel told XBIZ. "When I first saw Dempsey, the first thing I thought was that he wasn't your 'traditional' porn star. But for all my years in this industry, I still like to think that I know what's hot. When Matthew Rush appeared on the scene many years ago, he had a different, fresh look that helped shape the industry. I believe that Dempsey has that 'something new' about him.
"He's very now," Steel said.
Behind the camera, Suite 703 announced the hiring of popular blogger/personality Angel Benton to work in its marketing department.
“I am so excited about this great opportunity,” Benton said. “Especially since Jim Steel and Sharon Kane are people that I idolize in this industry. To be working so closely with them is like a dream come true.”
Benton will be writing and managing the blog for the Suite 703 site, as well as operating as moderator on their recently launched fan forums. He will be “the ear to the gay adult industry” for Suite 703 and its registered affiliates. He will also represent Suite 703 and its sites at various gay events around the country.
Both Benton and Stearns made appearances at Rentboy.com’s second International Male Escort Awards , where they presented an award together. The Escort Awards were held on March 22 at Rage Nightclub in West Hollywood.
