Anderson Cooper doesn’t just rip up Pat Robertson, he makes him the butthead of the joke.

In defense of Pat Robertson, even a few gay people who should know better. I once had a bar patron tell me I should use rubber gloves when cleaning my bar at the end of the night (back in the 90s when I was a bartender) that if someone had spit or bled on the Formica bar, no amount of cleaning it would kill it and “years later you can burn it back up through the surface and it’ll kill you.”

Some people are so dense.

Anyway… while Pat Robertson isn’t worried about Ebola, he’s quite worried about catching AIDS from towels and bacterial infections from ice when traveling “over seas.”

Anderson Cooper… wasn’t having it.

Francois Sagat Returns…

Today Porn Ultra-Star François Sagat posted to his blog about his return to porn.

Anyone who’s read my blog here knows that Francois is a huge fixture here… I’ve posted many of my favorite BTS clips of his last movie Incubus (here, here, here and here).

He abruptly left porn back in 2012 after the release of his self-directed movie Incubus 2.

And while he’s been active on his blog, in music, in performance art, in dance, in movies… he didn’t make a porn until this year’s DREAM FUCKERS for (out June 24)

People have asked me why he chose in Europe over coming to America… in his own words, “We’ve been talking about my comeback with Titan in California, which is still a Dream. I do hope that will happen… Right now I do not want to travel that far to America. “

It seems very reasonable that anyone would be less than willing to travel here to America in our current political climate… so let’s just hope that things change and we get to see him again. He’s still family here at Titan.

And in his words, “I’m not exclusive with anyone … and may wanna shoot again, it went well … I’m still confident.”

We look forward to seeing what he has up his sleeve next.

Target’s Star Wars Dildos.

Ok no… they’re not dildos…. but they sure look them.

Yes, this is real BUT it was just… an innocent accident.

Over Facebook, Target explained:

Occasionally, we carry merchandise that some guests may find objectionable, as was your experience. We never want to offend anyone and have shared this with our Merchandise team for review.

Oddly enough, the woman who first caught it wasn’t “offended” at all… she thought it was as funny as we all did.

I’ve never not burst into tears watching this scene.

From the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood.

I know I have a dirty mind and all…

…but the best/most disturbing thing so far today has been seeing entertainment section headlines reading “Wonder Woman tops Tom Cruise.”

This is literally the most terrifying thing you’ll see all day

Remember how back in about 1998 someone figured out that if you removed the audio from The Wizard of Oz and replaced it with Pink Floyd’s epic Dark Side Of The Moon, it all lined up and turned an already terrifying children’s movie into a mortifying Gen-X movie of hopelessness? Well… someone’s kinda vamped on that. (if you haven’t seen that, by the way, watch it after the jump…)

If you’re a technophobe who has to work in the digital world (such as myself), this will probably keep you up at night (like it will with me).

This is an ad for Goole Assistant but it’s cut with the audio from the Blade Runner 2049 audio.

It takes a cute advertisement about a small machine that listens to you non-stop 24 hours a day (and then shares that info to a central data cloud and predicts what you’ll say/do/like/buy) and makes it seem like that would be a bad thing.

10 years ago, but this is still accurate.

Kayden Gray is HIV+ and That Changes Absolutely Nothing.

Working in Sexual Health, Kayden finally bit the bullet and came out publicly as HIV+.

And good for him. Coming out as positive could affect his porn career and his work as an escort. But other than that… it doesn’t affect the way that we here at Dick Harden feel about him. He’s still a handsome, hot and top-notch performer and we’re happy to blog about his scenes.

Watch the video.. it’s rather beautifully unguarded and bluntly honest… and he’s right… being HIV+ doesn’t make you a “whore” nor does it mean anything about you at all. As I’ve told friends, family and strangers for over 25 years… the virus doesn’t care who you are or what you’re like… it’s not a judgment. It just is what it is.

We debated linking to a scene that he’s in on this post because we didn’t want to come across like we were trying to profit from such a serious video but we decided that NOT linking to his new scene would further the stigma that HIV+ men “shouldn’t be having sex.” And that’s just not true.

Besides, his new scene from Naked Sword’s Kiss And Tel Aviv is hot and we were going to be blogging about it, anyway. So.. here’s a few stills… check out the whole scene at Naked Sword.

Whoopie Goldberg meets a Porn Star

Last week Michael Musto tweeted out this picture of himself having lunch with Whoopie Goldberg “and others” having lunch. I couldn’t help but notice that one of the “others” was famously huge-dicked gay porn star Rocco Steele. Musto called the day “stimulating.”

I’ll bet.
