Issue 11.2 : Blogging


Starrfucker
By Tom Terranova

    New gay porn blogs debut almost daily, but very few ever succeed in building an audience as wide and loyal as the one that follows  Jeremy Lucido's StarrFucker blog. With readers in over a dozen countries, Jeremy has emerged as one of gay porn's most popular commentators.
    Despite his blog's success, it has never been more than a side project for Lucido. Before launching Starrfucker, he had already established himself as a respected portrait photographer and pornographer – first as owner of a portrait studio and now as a member of the Randy Blue team.
    With so much of his life now shared online, it can sometimes be easy for Jeremy’s fans to feel like they actually know him. But even though his life may occasionally seem like an open book, the real Jeremy Lucido remains safely hidden somewhere between the lines (probably snuggled up cozily with his partner Nick Leoni.) Like his photography, Jeremy's public life is a charming and provocative mix of sincere truth and playful misdirection. That said, the only way to discover the real Jeremy Lucido is to go straight to the source.
    After a recent holiday trip to his hometown of St. Louis, Jeremy took some time to field questions about blogging, photography, life, and love.

HOW DID YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY CAREER DEVELOP – AND HOW DID IT LEAD TO ADULT WORK?
I started working when I was still in school at the Otis College of Art and Design. Being in L.A., the easiest thing to do was headshots. I did that for a few years and had a headshot studio in Hollywood after college. My first adult-related job was taking press photos for Michael Brandon. On the side, I ran a small escort web directory called Joey and Carlo. Through that I started meeting and photographing escorts and porn stars. I soon moved on, but the friends and connections I made led to the adult work.

HOW DID YOUR JOB AT RANDY BLUE COME ABOUT?
I was working as a Studio Manager at a space Randy had rented for some shoots. I heard he was looking for a video editor and a full-time creative job sounded very appealing. The team at RandyBlue is a great, tight-knit group, so we're all friends, too.

DO YOU FIND CREATIVE SATISFACTION IN CREATING GOOD PORN?
That didn't really come until I had moved to video camera work and photography – when I began deciding what to shoot and creating scenerios. It always feels good to see your ideas come together into something that others enjoy, whether it's porn or art.

WHEN DID YOU GET THE IDEA FOR STARRFUCKER?
I decided to start StarrFucker in 2005 while I was still assisting Randy on shoots. I had all these great behind-the-scenes photos and I wanted a place to post them. I've never felt that I've worked on it enough, though. There never seems to be enough time in a day.

HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR BOYFRIEND, NICK LEONI? YOU JUST CELEBRATED YOUR ONE  YEAR ANNIVERSARY, SO WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE KEY TO A LASTING RELATIONSHIP?
We actually met on Dlist. I don't know if I'm the best person to answer this question. I wasn't looking for a boyfriend at the time. If I was going to have one, he had to be perfect for me. I wouldn't settle for anything less. Nick loves me as-is. He and I share a common interest in photography, creativity, and bettering ourselves.

WHAT’S LIFE LIKE IN THE LUCIDO/LEONI HOUSEHOLD?
We spend a lot of time together. I'll be posting to StarrFucker on the desktop as he's making a post from the laptop. We watch TiVO and go out with friends a lot. I even added a sissy bar to my motorcycle for him! Now that's real love.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE PORN BLOGS AND ADULT SITES?
One longtime favorite is Gay Porn Blog. I also like Fleshbot, Queer Me Now, and DudeTube. All of those have influenced StarrFucker in some way. Some of my newer faves include Naked Straight Guys and Lurid Digs.

IF YOU AND NICK WERE STRANDED ON AN ISLAND FOR 10 YEARS AND YOU COULD EACH BRING THREE FRIENDS, WHO MIGHT YOUR THREE CHOICES BE – AND WHY?
My friend Erika Jones, because we're the most alike and she can make any situation fun. Brian Yau, because he's fun, easy-going, and likes to party. And then one of my hot friends, so that Nick and I could have a threesome every once in a while!

In addition to the Starrfucker blog (where Nick now posts, too) there are a number of different places online where you can learn more about Jeremy. For his photography work, try Jeremy Lucido, Model Mayhem, and Flickr. Serious stalkers will want to scrutinize his profiles on both MySpace and Facebook. There's even a Jeremy Lucido Twitter account for those who demand hourly updates. And don't forget YouTube, where Jeremy's vaudeville side ocasionally comes out to play.

This is indeed what “Big Brother” might look like if CBS were to suddenly nix its nudity prohibitions. It's heavy on shower scenes, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Especially when the men prove to be such beautiful exhibitionists. These European hunks proudly salute their invisible admirers with their beefy, uncut cocks. Not much of the content is explicitly sexual, but there are occasional exceptions such as when Euro stud Frenki bangs his girlfriend and then cleans off his soiled hardware. Because you gotta keep your moneymaker clean!


Four dedicated, gay men – including a designer, an architect, a photographer, and a stylist – prowl the net to find the most scintillating images of the most ravishing men. With categories such as Popular Trophy Guys and Daily Dose of Imagery, Homo Trophy overflows with ways to appreciate the constant influx of pretty new faces. One of the featured models is brunette looker Chad – and believe us, nothing comes between Chad and his Calvins!


The creator of this naughty shrine to Priapus is on a determined quest to track down perfect wood. Mrs. Candy even has her own unique criteria to help identify these ideal phalluses. Many of the featured knobs are laudable – such as the 1970s Playgirl centerfold Jim Lampier – and Mrs. Candy frequently fills us in about the vital statistics of our favorite male celebrities. In a spirit of democracy, all interested models may submit boners for consideration.


It's CNN meets Logo, balancing topical gay news (such as the scandal over Barack Obama's choice of Reverend Rick Warren for the inaugural address) and handpicked beefcake shots. The site has updates almost hourly, bringing you both relevant and titillating material. Recent updates included news about porn star Mason Wyler's rape case and HBO's upcoming Hung series, music videos, random jocks, and the latest celebrity nude scenes. There's also gossip about gay icons such as Madonna and Lance Bass. All in all, a very nice package.
