Singer/songwriter Matt Gold has released his new single 'Appreciated,' and it's pretty catchy.
The openly gay artist made a name for himself playing original compositions at college campuses and small venues before releasing his first album, Drown Before You Swim, in 2012. 'Appreciated' is the first single off his new EP Let It Out.
Dirty Tony has a knack for getting sexy and natural looking amateurs age 18-35 to do solos, duos and groups for him. Cumshots from two angles and creamy facials are a specialty, but there is still no HD content.

Artist Tom of Finland
, known for his homoerotic images, is being honored with a series of stamps created by the Finnish Postal Service, Itella. His three stamps will be released in September, along with 29 others celebrating Finnish culture.
Tom of Finland, born Touko Laaksonen, was born in 1920. Many of his images focused on extremely well hung men in leather, jeans and military gear He created more than 3,500 illustrations before he passed away in 1991.
“His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion. In his works, Tom of Finland utilized the self-irony and humor typical of subcultures,” Itella explained.
“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual,” Tom of Finland said in one of his earlier interviews.
So when is the US Postal Service going to release a set of Mapplethorpe stamps?
Porn star and producer Michael Lucas
is not at all happy that the president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has likened Truvada to party drugs.
Truvada is the drug individuals take daily as a preventative measure against contracting HIV. The measure is often referred to as Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP for short.
Michael Weinstein, president of the AHF, isn't a fan. "Let’s be honest: It’s a party drug,” he told the Associated Press, claiming men are using it to justify unprotected sex.
He also told ABC News: “I think it will be a catastrophe for HIV prevention in this country,”
Lucas countered, in an editorial for OUT
, "It would be one thing if this were a talking point of a crackpot on The 700 Club," "Hell, Mr. Weinstein’s words could be adapted nicely for a poster for the Westboro Baptist Church. But this man, who earns, according the LA Times, around $390,000 per year, leads an organization that’s the largest provider of HIV/AIDS services in the United States. Yet his views are so out of line with scientific reality that, before approving PrEP, the head of the Centers for Disease Control refused to even meet with him."
Lucas then pointed to research that indicated the program is at least 90 percent effective, with no reported cases of someone becoming HIV+ while on PrEP. "We need to take Mr. Weinstein and his radical rhetoric out of the national conversation," Lucas suggested. "He needs to be removed from his post at the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. Immediately."
Weinstein is somewhat of a drama queen and should, at the very least, approach Truvada with a more tempered skepticism. Lucas, of course, has his own bias as a user of the PrEP method. It's a new drug and it always takes time to see what the real effects, medically and socially, will be.
