Sadly, the cutie that was Max Ryder
has left porn. Rebranded as George Alvin, he's planning a comeback of sorts, exploring the more mainstream world of fashion and PR, and starting a blog.
He told fans that his blog was designed to not only "allow you guys to continue to follow my journey from a world of adult entertainment I knew nothing about, and into the real world pursuing my many and changing 'dreams'; but also as a place for those of you that share my interests [in] music, fashion, and all things crazy."
He's is also writing a book with highlights from his short life.
"As some of you have heard, I am working hard at getting my memoir published - it's about my 2 years in a ruthless industry and moving into adulthood. Now some of you have asked 'why the hell are you writing a memoir? You're 21.' Well, if you know what a memoir is, it's a sort of story/journal of a specific time period in one's life in which a certain incident/set of incidents took place and there was a lot of personal growth"
We certainly hope he finds a lot of success in his new venture. Of course, for those of you finding it hard to let go, you can always check out his XXX work here

The wonderful - and hot - lads from the University of Nottingham hockey team have created this video as a way to battle homophobia in sports. They strip down as part of a "Voice Your Rights" student project.
Can we hang out with them for the day?
Facebook has released a statement that starting next year, you will be seeing fewer posts from the brands and businesses you have chosen to follow (and likely more of the ads Facebook is paid to push that you never asked for).
"Beginning in January 2015, people will see less of this type of content in their News Feed," Facebook said in a blog post. "As we’ve said before, News Feed is already a competitive place — as more people and pages are posting content, competition to appear in News Feed has increased. All of this means that pages that post promotional creative [content] should expect their organic distribution to fall significantly over time."
It said these posts are nothing more than spam. This is, of course, true, except that users can opt out of following any brand they feel is not providing value added content in their News Feed.
"What we discovered is that a lot of the content people see as too promotional is posts from pages they like, rather than ads," Facebook said in the post. "This may seem counterintuitive but it actually makes sense: News Feed has controls for the number of ads a person sees and for the quality of those ads (based on engagement, hiding ads, etc.), but those same controls haven’t been as closely monitored for promotional page posts. Now we’re bringing new volume and content controls for promotional posts, so people see more of what they want from pages."
In other words: Facebook is not making any money off of these posts.
This will make things more dofficult for adult companies who are currently not allowed to buy ad space on Facebook. Further limiting the reach of posts on the popular social networking site could mean a decrease in reaching valuable new consumers.
“EDGErank, the algorithm that affects what appears in the News Feed, is going to become even more important as pages are forced to participate in ads for increased visibility,” explained Lauren MacEwen
. “Most adult companies are not able to place an ad on Facebook, even if it is simply to drive likes to a page."
She added: “This may be limiting; however Facebook has been limiting to adult for a long time. Most adult companies are not allowed to share links to their content, or often even SFW blog posts depending on the topic of their post or the name of their site. ... I think the upcoming push for ads is going to force pages, adult and non-adult, to focus on the quality of their shared content and engagement."
So follow us on Facebook
- where we share interesting articles and pics of sexy guys - while you can. (And you wouldn't consider links to hot men fucking to be spam, would you? Of course not!)

Mason Wyler is back ... on Twitter.
The former porn star came out as HIV+ back in 2010. He flirted with a career in bareback porn because, he said, he had been blacklisted by the major gay porn studios. He shot a few videos and then just disappeared from the scene. He even stopped updating his website, WylerNation.com, in 2012.
This past weekend he reappeared with the tweet: "I have returned to you."
Then, a mere two days later, he started posting things that really pissed off a lot of people, including that "bareback sex leads to HIV and HIV leads to FREE healthcare. #Perks."
Many of his followers - and non-followers - accused him of being irresponsible, reminding him that there is still no cure for the disease that carries with it many health complications.
"Healthcare is pricey in the US," he replied. "Just trying to help my followers save money. It's a budget tip everyone can use!"
And he didn't end there ...
Perhaps he should have extended his hiatus from Twitter a little - or a lot - longer.
Bearforce 1 is hoping this song will be chosen to be Switzerland's official entry at Eurovision 2015. (After all, if a bearded drag queen can win this year's Eurovision, then four dancing bears have a good shot at taking it next year!)

Yes, technically it is still autumn, but you know winter is around the corner. Some of us have even had snow!
So we thought it would be good idea to remind you that winter is not all about shivering in the cold. It can actually be quite hot!
This is so much better than a winter sweater!
With little funding for sequins, US figure skaters will now compete without costumes.
This is what happens when you go cruising in a blizzard!
"My board is so much bigger than yours!"
Just a bunch of ski bums.
"Gloves. Toque. Hot coffee. Now why do I still feel cold?"
Jeff is a big cummer. This picture was taken on one of the hottest days in July!
Now that the children's show is hitting middle age, it's time for its characters to do the responsible thing.

Queer performer Perfume Genius is taking Eminem with him on his current tour. That is, he's selling shirts with Eminem's face on them. And to make a point, it's Eminem - or Feminem - in drag.
He tweeted: "I am selling t-shirts that feature an emasculated Eminem on this tour. Just a fuckin reminder."
And: "Pretty sure I could destroy him with Just a Look, someone put us in a room together and watch Eminem slowly wither from my witch glance."
Eminem, who has claimed he supports gay rights, continues to drop anti-gay slurs in his raps. His most recent freestyle rap, to support his upcoming release, uses the word "dyke" repeatedly and refers to Anderson Cooper taking a "tube up his pooper."

Once again, People magazine is planning its annual “Sexiest Man Alive” issue. According to an insider, the two front-runners are Chris Pratt and Neil Patrick Harris.
"Guardians of the Galaxy was a huge movie and it is still fresh in people’s minds. The film made Chris Pratt a star and overhauled his image from that cute guy on Parks and Recreation to a buff heartthrob,” the magazine insider said. “If he can make blockbuster money, he can sell a ton of magazines is the thinking. What The Hangover did for Bradley Cooper this film did for Chris. It’s his year.”
But he has some strong competition. Harris is also being considered.
“People has never had an openly gay ‘Sexiest Man’ before. It would certainly make news and generate buzz for the magazine,” said the insider. “Plus, Neil is going to be hosting the Oscars. He’s in Gone Girl, he was just on Broadway. He’s also happily married with kids. He is having an amazing year."

David Bowie is back with a new single. It's called “Sue (Or In a Season of Crime).” We think it'll take a special kind of listener (maybe a deaf one) to warm up to it. Just saying.
Anyway, Bowie is interesting in terms of his sexuality. He admitted to being bisexual way back in a 1976 interview with Playboy, He said: "It's true—I am a bisexual. But I can't deny that I've used that fact very well. I suppose it's the best thing that ever happened to me."
However, aside from his rumored relationship with Mick Jagger, his many sexual conquests have been with women. And in a 1983 interview with Rolling Stone, Bowie changed his tune and declared, "I was always a closet heterosexual." His earlier bisexuality was, he explained, "a compulsion to flout moral codes than a real biological and psychological state of being."
Is he? Isn't he? We guess it ultimately doesn't matter since none of us will be bedding the pop star any time soon.

Fans of Brent Corrigan - also known as Sean Paul Lockhart - can check out his non-porn acting skills in the upcoming release, The Dark Place.
According to producers: "The Dark Place is a thrill ride, with handsome men and mysterious circumstances that unfolds step by perilous step. And our hero, Keegan Dark, is a modern-day Sherlock Holmes — just add gay. The story digs deep into what love and family means to us all. If there’s a bit of blood and carnage along the way, so be it!"

This is interesting: a 21-year-old man at the Church of God in Christ’s 107th Holy Convocation in St. Louis, Missouri declared himself "delivered" from homosexuality.
"I'm not gay no more," he proclaimed. "I am delivered! I don't like mens no more. I said I like women. Women women women women! I said women! I'm not gay! I would not date a man! I would not carry a purse! I would not put on make-up! I will, I will love a women."
The pastor then rewarded the man with $100, because God told him to.
The video went viral. Here's a cute remix. (Just don't be surprised when this straight boy ends up on Grindr in a week.)
