Unlikely porn stars



Another truly fabulous night at Polari last night - who would have thought that such a collection of smut and sleaze could turn out to be so entertaining (hee hee)? Wearing my T-shirt in tribute to the legendary gay porn director JD Cadinot (RIP), I wasn't sure what to expect...



Eric Karl Anderson's reading was a salutary tale of a prissy queen who harbours some very dark fantasies indeed - ending with stalking a porn star, who turns out to be much more sensible than just a fantasy sex object... His story Breathe appears in the compilation Between Men 2.

The lovely Rupert Smith aka award-winning gay porn smutmeister James Lear gave us a whole new insight into the joys of playing "hide-and-seek" with your hostess's hunky boyfriend... An excellent and entertaining reader as always, Rupert certainly knows how to get an audience "warmed up". His book The Back Passage is currently top of several best seller lists, and is also available on Amazon.

Our host Paul Burston almost resisted the temptation this time to take all his clothes off, and instead opted for teeny tiny denim shorts and a leather "easy-wipe" waistcoat for his reading, a particularly erotic extract from his bestseller The Gay Divorcee.



Then it was the turn of our star author, former porn star turned director Blue Blake, whose account of how excruciating filming a gay porn film in the Mexican desert can be was hilarious - complete with marauding dogs, snakes and "gay-for-pay" actors with unfortunate haemorrhoids! His reading from his memoirs Out of the Blue: Confessions of an Unlikely Porn Star was so brilliant and entertaining I had to buy a copy!

Possibly one of the best Polari evenings I have been to, this was also the last to be held at Freedom Bar, as a bigger and brighter future awaits this "peerless gay literary salon" in September, as we move to the South Bank Centre. I can't wait!
