On Lukas Ridgeston

So writes JC Adams about Lukas Ridgeston: "Lukas’ eyes shimmer with the warmth of the Mediterranean. I’ve met all kinds of skin stars at all levels of fame but very few possess that kind of bewitching aura. Kevin Williams had it; so did Drew Andrews. I only met Joey Stefano once, but you could feel that erotic mojo around him like a force field. You realize it’s not just beauty that makes a porn performer into a porn star, but something ineffably magnetic, an “It” factor that cements their legend"

I was lucky: I met Joey more than once. I met Kevin more than once. In fact, I worked with Joey twice. And that 'erotic mojo' was so strong I can't forget about it some 16 years later. Ditto for Lukas: so magnetic, so charismatic, I inevitably turn into a shy school girl whenever I'm around him (photo ©

Roberto Giorgio & Giorgio Salieri

Blast from the past: Roberto Giorgio (from Hungary) and Giorgio Salieri (from the Czech Republic) were engaged to their girlfriends at the time. And yet they hit it off: both would openly admit to having discovered their 'bi-sexual' identity. Then again, why this obsession about 'labels'? If there's one thing I've learnt in the porn biz is that one's sexuality isn't just black and white. 'nough said about the many web properties offering 'straight' dudes (broke, drunk, or simply... available). Hmm...

Video Piracy

The Free Speech Coalition uploaded this timely, informative PSA. It is, however, an uphill battle. Consider the first immediate, idiotic comments:

"I use linux OS's all i know is free, and even if the big businesses go under, theres always amateur." And: "How are people without credit cards supposed to get porn? Steal their parent's credit card? Porn is a very important part of teenage development. Tube sites help that happen". This is what we are up against: a whole new generation that believes porn 'comes from tube sites'. Is everything online for free? What about these people's online checking accounts? Are they free also? May I withdraw $$ as I please? And so the question stands: how do we change the public discourse @ copyright and piracy (without preaching to the choir)?

A morning with Jean Franko

Early in the morning with Jean Franko. A glimpse at the real man behind the porn star

Jean Franko

It's here: a brand new photo set (and a candid behind the scenes) of your favorite Latin hunk. Pictures were taken in Puglia (Southern Italy) this past October.

Happy birthday, Max Veneziano

Happy birthday Max. This muscle god made quite a splash back in 2001-2003: after an impressive solo debut in Maspalomas , he went on to star in Mykonos , Backstage and The Innkeeper. Kristen Bjorn took notice and signed him to an exclusive contract: Max was indeed the stereotypical Bjorn model: muscular, well endowed, confident --we couldn't be happier. Too bad his porn career didn't last long: more and more tattoos covered his body, from one picture to the next. He retired a few years later, but is sorely missed and is counted --to this very day-- amongst our most popular models

XXX Castings: Jacopo

A look at Jacopo. This hunk, 28, hails from Rome and works as a stripper. Which explains his 'relaxed' attitude towards sexual orientation (Jacopo admits to being 'straight', but not 'narrow'). Here at lucaskazan we've often exposed the hypocrisy of Italian culture (of most latin cultures, in fact): everyone defines himself as straight by day, everyone fools around with the boys (or the trannies) by night.

Ettore Tosi

Here's a sneak peek at Ettore's new photo set. Shot at the San Vicente Inn (WeHo) some 10 years after the one he did for photographer Mick Hicks and his book ("Snaps"). Ettore trained hard in the last couple of months and I dare say he looks hotter today than 10 years ago. Stay tuned
