Hard Friction’s Hot & Hard Good Times

This week, the Raging Stallion membership site posted another scene from Temptation, the 32nd movie release from the studio’s highly successful Hard Friction line. Featuring Mickey Taylor and Damien Michaels the scene is a very good representation of what co-directors Steve Cruz and Bruno Bond have done at Hard Friction since it was first launched as […]

Our Top Blog Posts of 2013

   What were the most visited blog posts at Jack Manly in 2013? Every year we take a look back and find more than a few surprises among the names, movies, sites, and studios that seem to garner the most interest. There are older posts from previous years that continue to generate traffic and we’ll mention them at the end but here we’re looking at the most visited posts of 2013. 

 1. JOCKS: Mountain Tops Part 2 . Our preview of the last JOCKS brand movie to be released (for now at least) was visited the most in 2013. Likely one of the stars of the movie with a big following re-tweeted the post about this. Still, it would be interesting to know if sales on this last of the JOCKS movies reflected its ranking here.

 2. Cocky Boys’ RoadStrip Episode 3: The Bangover We knew that posts about Cocky Boys were popular but it was always interesting to see WHICH posts brought readers to the blog. RoadStrip was another of the studio’s many hits and creative successes and this particular episode was surely among the highlights.

 3. GuysInSweatpants.com Is Coming! Our first post about what has been another of 2013’s successes was a short and sweet teaser about the site. As the year went on the site continued to be one that generated interest here and elsewhere.

 4. Dad Gets Into Trouble!  As you can see our preview post about the summer release of legendary director Joe Gage’s movie shows that he is still going strong creatively and in popularity.

 5. Grabbys Awards 2013 Winners
 6.
Grabbys 2013: The Recap..and Photos!  There are  people may be a little vocally cynical about gay porn awards, but it doesn’t hide the fact that the Grabbys still hold interest for many–as seen in these two posts.

Best of 2012: The Newcomers Pt 2

Best of 2012: The Newcomers Pt 2

  In part two of our look at the newcomers of  2012 we find another diverse group of hot guys, some of whom many of you are just getting your first looks at. As with the first group there’s no telling how many of these guys are going to be breakaway stars –if they aren’t already– 2013.

 Brayden Forrester. This hairy chested & versatile stud (top, left)with rugged good looks made his debut in a Naked Sword Originals series “Truck” and we expect much more from him in 2013.
  
 Caleb Colton. Handsome, hung & tattooed versatile star (top. middle) whose work in 2012 drew our attention and warranted a spotlight a few months ago. Like many stars who make it Caleb fits into a variety of roles and genres and really gives it his all.

 Collin Stone. This darkly sexy NYer prides himself as an exhibitionist (top, right) and was certainly one of the year’s more intriguing new stars.


                  Connor Patricks                                          Danny Palick                                               Genesis Luna 

 Connor Patricks. This handsome jock from the South has done a variety of roles on websites and movies ad was one of several new talents to get a boost from roles with Falcon.

 Danny Palick. This tall young jock from the Midwest looks serious and intense but describes himself as laid back. Like many of the hot new talents of the past few years is active on Twitter so it’s easy to keep up with him.

Best of 2012: The Newcomers Pt 1
Jan 03 2013

Best of 2012: The Newcomers Pt 1

 Our look back at 2012 continues with a spotlight on the many performers who started out or did the most of their earliest work during the past year. Many have already become outright stars and others are on their way.

  Alex Graham. This hot & muscular young man (top, left) also had a career under a different name (he was Joel at Corbin Fisher) but like Duncan Black, Alex looks different than he did before he made his debut in 2012. Don’t be surprised if you see even more physical changes in this versatile young star.
 
 Charlie Harding. Big & muscular tattooed star (top, middle) who also started as a Raging Stallion exclusive and has also gone freelance. This rugged star also flexed his acting muscles in 2012 establishing he’s not just a mountain of sexy muscles.

 Dale Cooper. Many have already proclaimed him (top, right) one of the stars of 2013 and for good reason. Just about a year ago he was being featured in several productions but it would be several months before the buzz on this sexy new star started. Key appearances on websites and in movies like The Woods and Men In The Sand guaranteed he was a star to watch.

The Most Popular Blog Posts of 2012

 Which were the blog posts that got the most hits and/or generated the most interest in 2012? Sometimes the reason is just the inclusion of a particular name or site, and/or referred links. We don’t know if any of the following entries were actually read by all those visited the posts but we’d like to believe people took the time. Also, as in previous years there are still some blog entries pre-2012 that are still generating traffic….You’ll find those mentioned after the Top 20 list for 2012.

  Justin Monroe’s Mad World Video. Far and away the most visited post of the year. A video featuring the photography of the talented artist whose subjects are often porn stars in surreal settings.  Beautiful men as beautiful art is always a traffic generator.

  Rocco Reed Signs With MEN.com! The jury is still out on his work with MEN.com but the award-winning straight porn star’s foray into gay porn was a big story in 2012 and was met with both interest and curiosity.

  Landon Conrad Goes Freelance!: The Exclusive Interview. One of gay porn’s most popular stars became a free agent in 2012 and he granted us this special interview. If he indeed wraps up his career in 2013 he’s surely going out on top.

  The Peters Twins Retire!. The controversial identical twins from Europe had been a big deal and were among Bel Ami’s hottest stars when it was announced they were quitting the biz. And unlike several stars they actually DID retire!

  Paddy O’Brian Powers Up. You either love him or don’t get the appeal but this cockney straight stud has been one of the year’s most sought-after stars. In this post from February he was still appearing at English Lads and going all the way with other guys.
 
  And MORE Cocky Boys News… The website that continues to be a major force in porn has generated lots of interest this past year but this spring news update during production of Project GoGo Boy was the most popular.

 Jake Deckard’s Men In The Sand Teaser. One of porn’s hottest stars returned in 2012 and in addition to many noteworthy appearances directed a tribute to classic gay porn which has to be one of the best of the year.

  English Lads: Paddy O’Brian, Power Top. A month after Paddy’s most popular post was this one in which he scene as a top made its debut.

  Jake Deckard Returns!. One of the first posts of the year announced the return of the award-winning star and as we found ANY post that featured him or his movies was sure to generate interest.

  Men In The Sand FULL Trailer. Lo & behold when the full trailer of his movie was released,  interest was high and it confirmed that Jake Deckard has staying power as a star. 

  Hookies Awards Winners! Oddly enough the awards show that most people (and stars) wanted to see the results was from the International Male Escort Awards.
