Fisting. It’s one of our more controversial pastimes. Some are addicted to it, others can’t stand the sight of it. Over the past half a century, it’s carved its own niche in gay identity, spawning a subculture all of its own – one with its own social networks and its own rules. For many of its devotees, it’s an almost spiritual experience, while others love it for the pure, down n’ dirty, bad-boy sleaziness of it.
He’s a gear-fetish idol, self-professed kinkster, a sci-fi geek and, according to, ‘a professional badass’. When it comes to fisting, he gives and takes in equal measure. Plus he was recently awarded the coveted title of Best British Daddy – at the ripe old age of 42.
Mysubscription ran out about a week ago. Luckily, before it did, I took the chance to raid their back catalogue and watch as many suit-sex videos as I could cram into my poor, porn-saturated brain.
I’ve always loved the way Men at Play manage to make their photography look like an upmarket fashion brand. It’s a clever idea and it still looks fresh after more than 10 years of doing the same thing. It’s like a dry spoof on the fantasy corporate world presented by men’s fashion ads, with its immaculately styled execs and imaginary board meetings.
This isn’t strictly a top 10 – more a list of 10 good ones. I’ve tried to pick from an even spread of years, singling out their most distinctive ideas. But if there’s one thing they’ve got in common, it’s that they’re all hot ones.
He’s got Latin looks, rock-hard abs, a spectacular bubble butt and a thick, juicy, uncut cock. Brazilian-born power top Jimmy Durano made his mainstream porn debut in Chi Chi LaRue’s Steven Daigle: XXXPosed, after a series of appearances on amateur site– and his star has been rocketing ever since.
Race Cooper first exploded onto our screens in XXX, Steve Cruz’s adrenaline-charged third feature for Mustang Studios in 2009. His electric scene with Scott Alexander was an instant hit. It launched the former TV producer into a career in porn that would see him headline for the likes of Raging Stallion, Men at Play, Kink.com and Cazzo. He’s since established his own paysite,, and his own wrestling fundraiser night at San Francisco’s . All that, and he’s an accomplished blogger too; reveals a perceptive, humorous, sometimes challenging perspective on porn, the media, gay life and… well, race.
Plus, of course, he’s an unapologetic lover of kink, often describing himself as a sexual ‘freak’. His work with Tony Buff for Fetish Force bears him out: we’ve seen him do fisting, sounding and bondage, lapping it all up with boundless energy.
We’ve been seeing a lot of Landon Conrad lately. The square-jawed 5’9 blond has come a long way since he made his porn debut in 2008, appearing in Falcon’s Str8Men series. The following year he was back, featuring inalonside Chi Chi LaRue’s for Channel 1. And since then, we’ve seen him in titles by the likes of Hot House, Raging Stallion and Naked Sword. This weekend he makes his sixth appearance on Men at Play, in a sizzling corporate encounter with ripped Russian Dato Foland.
