I really wish Marc would shave and get a haircut. He looks too much like a Disney villain!

Has anyone seen the Kansas City trailer???
What pairings are we expecting??
I saw the Rhett video. He has a nice cock, but he could have come on his stomach, I find that way hotter than just throwing it somewhere away. And he shaves his pubes. Fool, I could have liked him.
Evan and Marc look hot hot hot, I am looking forward to see this one
- Connor/Colt/Again and it's a goddam POV thingy
Sorry for the quality of the caps but the trailer is encoded real low and it was edited by Pete, so lots (and lots) of genitalia close-ups and Final Cut effects layered on top...
Double dose of Again and his lovely bendable toes, I couldn't help myself
To me this looks like the Pete-directed part of the shoot: sex in uncomfortable places (kitchen and cold showers), weird positions and the director getting a well-deserved rest by having the models multi-task while having porn sex...
It looks like the b-roll will be mostly travelogue, not the models having (staged) fun. I understand when travelling abroad but in KC?
So how much do you figure it'll go for? $25 reduced to $20 for subscribers?

^^ I would agree with your four scenes, and your review. Just a few more caps that I found interesting.
Awkward Kiss #1 (Or is it just me? The hands and faces are fine, but the lip positions?)
Awkward Kiss #2 (camera person gets an "E" for effort in trying to manage a closeup of Colt's equipment and a kiss in the same shot)
I can't decide whether to title this "feeding the kids" or "the boys choir", but in either event it's Colt and Brayden, eyes and mouths wide open, waiting for a squirt of Connor's cum.
In comparison, Zeb doesn't look at all happy about a similar situation
"Zeb and Kennedy practicing their new dance step - the Kansas City Tango"
In spite of the above caps, it looks like that there are some good shots (they even used a mirror in one) in this video. And With Brayden and Connor in this collection I'll buy it.
What a weird directorial choice of an ending money shot for a Connor scene!
The very blue lighting in the bathroom of the Zeb/Kennedy paso doble is another Pete special: "Who needs lighting? I don't have time for this crap! My Sex On The Beach is getting warm. Chop chop."
My conclusion is that Connor doesn't generate a lot of cum in most cf videos. Maybe that's a side effect of having a gf/wife that he goes home to every night, unlike the other models that have been saving up for a shoot (some pun intended). At the same time imo Connor has one of the best looking/performing cocks in the industry. He regularly fucks large quantities of cum out of his scene partners. By the time he's ready to cum I'm exhausted anyway.

Zeb, Colt, Kennedy, Brayden, and Connor, huh? Ok, they are vets, more or less, and can perform in difficult circumstances; but it's hard to imagine a really hot pairing from any combination of these five.
Edit: I'd love to be proven wrong, but that would require a major lifestyle change on the part of a couple of these guys.

I said this because there seems to be a pattern among some of CF's 'straight' guys. They start work at CF and discover that, once they are over any psychological hangups, gay sex is actually quite hot and at the peak of this discovery period they are able to portray genuine pleasure and connection with their partners in doing it. (Connor, Harper, Lucas, Dawson, etc. have unquestionably made some very hot scenes.) Then, once the surprise and novelty is over, the passion fades and their performances become more mechanical and calculated. The length of this trajectory varies with the model, of course.
I think Corbin (or somebody at CF) used to be quite good at discerning this tipping point and letting even very popular models go before their performances deteriorated markedly. Others, maybe CF hung onto for too long. I think a few too many of these 'others' went to Kansas City.
^^ I would suggest that it might be "a pattern among most (not just some) of Cf's....", or at least most of the guys that hang around at all. Also, do you think that this only applies to the 'straight' guys? I guess the problem with 'gay' guys is that I can't think of any of them that stayed around long enough to observe this pattern.
I would suggest that the "letting even very popular models go" may be part of the overall race to the bottom (no pun intended) to lower the pay for models in the gay porn industry. It's probably easier to hire new guys at a lower rate than it is to lower the rate of a current model. Historically, the shelf life of models may have been short enough that this wasn't a problem, but post the economic downturn some models may be more motivated to hang around longer.

Another type of straight performer would be Stu from SC. He comes to mind but I'm sure there are similar profiles at CF. His first scenes were good and fun to watch. Maybe it is because he started very young, at an age where one doesn't know oneself so well, but at the beginning you could feel that he was somehow excited, whether it was from the discovery of a new experience, the prospect of testing his limits or maybe the idea of breaking a taboo, with probably somewhere in his head the tantalizing (and frightening, and titillating) question "Will I like it?". It lasted four or five scenes. Then the novelty faded, he made up his mind that gay sex was definitely not for him, and has been a very boring performer ever since.
How far from Connor's meatus are Colt and Brayden positioned from? 4-5 inches? Have you ever seen Connor catch that much air?
I suppose that during the KC shoot, Connor's reproductive organs were as much as called upon as when he is at home, so is he supposed to produce a lot more?
And propel it with sufficient acceleration that the visuals produced match what was in Pete's mind when devising the shot?
The suspense is killing me. I can't wait for Texansfan's caps.
"If" Connor shoots a load that gets both Brayden and Colt in the face, I might think visually "enhanced". Besides they have happy faces because they know they are safe from getting cum in their eyes....
Zeb - Why do they insist on giving him cum in the mouth when he clearly hates it? His eyes are glued shut and he has such a bitter face. Anybody think he will actually swallow any or will it be quickly spit out?
Kennedy - Will he be "hard" in his scenes or will he have Dixon-Wood?
Colt, IMO, is the one I want to see. Is he going to be in "porn mode". Will he attempt to choke Connor?
And Brayden being speared by Connor... The toes should be curled through the whole video..
ER (not to be confused w/HMQ), I think the phenomenon you describe holds true for all adult performers, regardless of orientation or even sex. I suspect the exhibitionism is the real taboo element, and not the sex of the partner. Like all things, it becomes a job after a bit.
Connor's always been a low-volume guy. As an adult industry professional I think he knows to lay off for a couple of days prior to a shoot. I'm guessing him and his bride will be visiting a fertility clinic when the time comes.
Travis was definitely the big-volume champ -- he must have a huge prostate-seminal vesicle (which might explain his enthusiasm for catching). Kenny's another one who impresses with his volume, and he's a real shooter too! Brayden cums a fair amount. Colby's shot in his solo lasted something like 20 seconds!
I wish the KC BTS would include a trip to a swimmin' hole. The best though would be a fishing trip on Lucas' boat -- a day on one of those huge reservoirs going after crappies and bass.

Does anyone know? Has Josh hung up his hat?
Kennedy Takes Zeb's Load Born & Bred in Kansas City. Part 1 of a 4 part series.
This update is 19 minutes in length including b-roll.
B-roll consists of different pictures of Kansas City and the guys walking down a sidewalk and the group posing in different settings. No talking just various poses to music.
Really happy faces.....
Much better picture
I'll sum up the scene in 5 words: Sex in a confined space.
The update starts with Zeb and Kennedy in the shower where they make out and share blow jobs.
They share a kiss after blowing each other and then Zeb walks out of the shower. The camera switches and we have Kennedy standing in front of a mirror applying lotion to his face wearing a towel and Zeb walks in dressed in his underwear. Talk about blowing the flow of the scene. Zeb starts making out with Kennedy again.
The fucking starts
CF's tribute to the Kansas City 2-Step
What is Kennedy laying on?
First thing I thought of when getting this grab is "who farted?"
I give this scene 3.5 stars because of filming in a confined space and the return of porn talk from Kennedy. It isn't bad but he lost me when he used Colt's line of "fuck my tight little ass".
Connor Feeds Brayden & Colt - Born and Bred In Kansas City. Scene 2.
This is a POV scene. IMHO the POV is HORRIBLE. It is all shot close up and is dizzying. Imagine holding a camera and fucking full speed! Get the idea? I did not include any of the fucking POV in my pics.
Pete is manning the other camera used in the shoot. The video is 23:49 in length.
The b-roll is again a few shots of a fountain, a canal, the skyline, and more pics of all the guys set to music.
The video starts with Pete calling out: "CALLING ALL POWER BOTTOMS, PLEASE REPORT (long pause) PLEASE REPORT TO WORK IMMEDIATELY".
Colt and Brayden start upstairs. Colt is texting somebody at the same time. Safety minded Pete tells Colt not to text and walk up stairs at the same time.
Connor is naked on the bed waiting for his prey.
Connor orders both of them to strip
After having the guys kiss each other, he tells Brayden to suck his cock and Colt to play with Brayden's ass
POV view of Brayden
Connor fucks Brayden first
He then goes back and forth
Colt shoots while ridding Connor. The second view is a POV and too close
Brayden's turn to shoot his load while being fucked
Curled toes shot for Jules!
That's pretty much all of it.
With the POV I give this 3-stars, the parts without the POV I give 4 stars. I'm guessing Connor is supposed to be playing Bossy Connor. If so, he did well. If he's not, then to me, he's a dick with a camera.
To clarify my comment "a dick with a camera". To me, Connor concentrated more on working the hand-held than he did on concentrating on his two partners who were clearly enjoying themselves. And I would like to add that Colt was very quiet in this scene. I guess he finally got a cock in him that was satisfying to him.
^^ Maybe that's one of the problems that cfs faces. By the time cf allows a model on a cfs scene, the spark is starting to fade, at least for some of guys?
Oops! In typical American centered fashion I left out one of the best examples of the sites I described above and that is Bel Ami though BA is slightly different in that it was originally a traditional porn video production company that transitioned to a more online company. Sorry for the memory lapse. Bel Ami was really the first major gay porn production that really focused on the guys just having a good time while having sex, just guys having fun. Keeping it light and having stunningly attractive models obviously worked.
Also, let me make it clear that transition described above is not the only one. Clearly for some their experience in gay porn turns on something that perhaps they were not fully aware of and that is that they redefine themselves as more clearly bisexual (and by that I mean that they will continue pursuing same sex activity in their private life, not the narrow "I've had sex with a guy, therefore I must be bisexual even if I was paid to do it" mentality) or even sometime gay. Watching all this has been fascinating.
Zeb Seeds Colt Scene 3 of Born & Bred In Kansas City
A short video at 15:45 in total including b-roll.
B-roll consists of various shots of Kansas City and more pictures of all the guys using time-lapsed photography.
This is another video shot in a confined space.
A rehashed position from the first scene
Stuff I learned from the 250th Pete’s Attic (because obviously I’m not about to watch the ‘Pete special’ from CFS)
So after taking two weeks off, they supersized this week’s PA and had Connor, Colt, Corbin and Brian on for 35 min. This being CF, they only had one mic for Pete and the rest of the interviewees were completely under-miked. So there might be some more interesting stuff that was said that I didn’t catch because you could hear Corbin’s dog scratching at Pete’s crotch better than Colt most of the time:
- If you submitted a question, you get to receive an autographed Connor compilation DVD and a 2015 calendar. So I suppose no Non-US subscribers submitted anything…
- Pete threatened Colt with a DP, explaining that they weren’t going to take him out of the country if he didn’t do one first. Brian was strangely muted during all this (or just too far from the mic).
- Brayden made lots of jokes when passers-by were asking why they were shooting shirtless guys in KC. He pretended they were a new boy-band called the “4 Skins” for instance.
- Connor and Colt skating in their bts was improvised so they had to borrow or bum skates from people they knew in KC. Colt grazed himself.
- They were very very excited because Colt gaped during at one point in the video. Okay…
- Corbin tried to pretend that they shot the scene using the hotel room’s natural lighting. I don’t know if this was done to appease Pete but that just wasn’t true.
- They were allusions to Connor’s new marital status.
- Brian assured everyone that they were still working on new stuff for the site. He mentioned it costing money (Corbin audibly bristled so I guess it’s true).
- Connor called KC a “shit hole” but covered it pretty quick.
- Corbin mentioned potentially going back to Florida or Down On The Farm again (do not go back to the farm Corbin. If I get to see those ultra cramped wood-paneled rooms again… Or if you do, you have to do shoot all of the scenes outside. With supplementary lighting.)
- Colt mentioned twice that it was difficult to shoot with Truman. NO SH!T SHERLOCK.
- Connor reminisced about Cain a lot. Everybody remembered it was difficult to penetrate Cameron.
- Pete ended it with “My liver is parched”. Tell us something we don’t know, Pete.
So if you caught anything else that was interesting, please don’t hesitate to add it.

Connor Slams Kennedy the fourth and final installment of Born & Bred In Kansas City.
The title lives up to the action. CF saved the best for last! Well shot on a bed! Kennedy got slammed pretty good and appeared to like it. I say that because he had decent wood through out the scene.
Some random caps from the Bead & Breakfast in Kansas City CF Select collection care of Texansfan:
Connor being very possessive of Brayden
Did Colt bring any top that actually fit him on this trip? (re. the oversized shirt he's stripping out of in front of Connor)
For once liquids are being projected in his vicinity and yet Zeb manages to look relaxed
Looking smarmy for the camera
CF models as pretty up close as they are from afar
As always the whole sordid affair can be seen on Texansfan's tumblr. (<- - - click there and prepare to be amazed).
Texasfan, you are a gentleman and a scholar for all your hard work.
I will say, though, that despite your excellent caps, the vids don't look terribly appealing. Some great shots of the guys in their underwear (Zeb in a pair of Calvins. *whistles* Have mercy), but yeah.
Poor KC. Getting no love from Connor.
I don't mind the look of the Connor/Kennedy scene. That's probably the only one I'd be tempted to buy (and they're all on CFS at the moment, aren't they?). On the other hand, this?
Cameron difficult to penetrate? His last scene was with Chandler, for Christ's sake!
I hope that wasn't why he was discontinued. Cam was quite the trooper at the end, not only getting penetrated but taking loads, eating cum. It was hot watching him get corrupted!
Cameron had the singularly most fuckable ass on the site! And edible! He still gives my tongue a boner! The problem with porn, CF included, is that producers don't appreciated that there's more to sex than fucking. Imagine a scene where three or four guys took turns eating him and when he was super-horned up fuck him! I think he'd have enjoyed penetration a lot more under those circumstances.
I loved Cameron's personality. He could be douchy, but as a component of his cockiness, which I found very hot. He was very funny. I wish he'd come back
The only other vaguely interesting thing that I can remember hearing is Connor commented that he enjoyed seeing first-time bottoms discover that anal sex was pleasurable.
txFan - thanks for all the great caps. Question, how long is scene 4?
Thx TXXF, for all of of those gr8 caps.
JMG, "NO SHIT SHERLOCK" Priceless!
Maybe I should give up on him. Or I could take the Donald Rumsfeld approach and tell myself, "Even though Kennedy has been a disappointment with a series of spectacular guys, with MY direction he would have folks begging for more."
Kellan fucks Kellan was actually very good
I gotta agree with EasyRory, actually. Aside from the brief (heh) appearance of Kellan's ridiculously-sexy Adidas briefs, the Kennedy/Kellan scene left me a bit cold. Like, it was filmed well, and both guys seemed to have a good time, but it wasn't scorchingly hot (and Kellan flat on his stomach should've been one of the main positions, not the after-thought at the end), IMHO.
Any one remember Gabe from many year back? IMO he was the hottest guy on CF.
Back in LV and on Peteís twitter I see that you are
Ridiculing Truman and his second rate scenes you pretty soon will be
Again was your nickname though it wasnít your fault
Your whimpers, your toes and your halted voice delivery (when you cum)
Donít skimp on them, theyíre your pepper and salt
Even if WB still disagrees, Iíll always find you as cute as can be
No need for restraining orders, this time Iíll only admire from afar
I'll be here all week. Don't forget to try the shrimp
Looking at these pics, all kinds of people showed up this week.
Pete's tweet 2014-07-18 "Kennedy's birthday"
(it looks like flip flops are the offical dress code for cf staff)
Pete's tweet 2014-07-19 "Kennedy's birthday"
(and they made Kennedy wait for the picture before blowing out his candle)
Pete's tweet 2014-07-20 "Sunday dinner" (Jules' desert is in the lower left corner)
I'm glad to see Jacob in today's scene. (now if he could be seen, but heard a little less. )
Heh @ Harper copping a feel of Kennedy as the guys all lift him up .
Kennedy fucks Jacob today's ACM update.
Good to see Jacob back at the campus and his legs up in the air!
I could watch Jacob's balls roll back and forth while being fucked for hours!
In the last PA, Brian bragged that CF downloads are faster. Well, yeah, 14 minute scenes (Kennedy/Jacob) are definitely going to download faster than the old 20+ minute ones.
Jacob and Kennedy looked great in their brief scene; they seemed really into each other such that I could believe they both actually came inside of 14 minutes. It was a very noisy scene, however, with one inanely inappropriate ass-slap. The scene should have been a flip-flop to make up for its brevity and also so we could see more Jacob. His body is so breathtaking who could care about his hair. Kennedy was greatly improved also over his last couple of scenes.
Just as Evan/Marc made me want to see Marc/Evan; now I want to see Jacob top Kennedy with Ashley directing.
Kennedy's never lived up to the potential which that scene
I wonder when the Birthday really was? Can't tell if that's the renegade Taylor-Brayden or Tyler. But I think both are gone. The Jacob scene was likely taped before the NJ Pride go-go boy gig

Reading QMN this morning, I think I finally figured out why Corbin had been doing all those gay events around LV (and promoting them loudly - if belatedly - on TT and the campus).
LV never seemed like a US gay capital so did not make much business sense to me but it turns out that all the pro gay porn outfits are fleeing California for Nevada because of AB 1576 (Kink, now Falcon/Raging Stallion/Hot House/whatever dying pro studio AEBN hasn't purchased just yet, ...): Corbin was trying to mark his territory and get some "good working relationships" going.
So that's why there is going to be an upcoming in-depth interview of both Corbin and Connor in QVegas: Corbin was a big gay fish in a little pond and that's not going to be the case for very much longer it seems.
In "it's a new week so I can get on Pete's tits some more" rants, Pete obviously thought that the underwater parts of CRII were a success (the thread was not as impressed if I remember correctly) so he's back at it again if this tweet is to be believed:
Pete, it wasn't erotic when Chi Chi Larue did it in the 90's. It wasn't impressive when Peter Jackson did with GoPros and dwarves right in the middle of The Hobbit Part II. So, why try it again?
I know that it probably stems from a desire to keep cool in hot weather more than anything else but couldn't you get Blake to apply a ziploc bag with some ice cubes on you heinie and be done with it?
In other "Pete awakens from his drunken stupor and realizes maybe he shouldn't have" news, Vine announced last March, 6th that they were banning pornographic content. Many blogs and porn stars commented on it at the time.
So last week, on July 17th, more than 4 months later, Pete uploaded a very graphic close-up (what else?) on Vine and got his account promptly terminated (he still seemed somewhat surprised during the PA).
I thought that Harper would be in charge of social media by now so did he encourage Pete to publicly stumble in the hopes of scooping some more responsibilities from Pete? Is Brian so terminally bored that he instigated some drama?
Possible inter-office intrigue, I like it. Pete, your new co-workers are young and ruthless, beware.
Re Pete's vine account: Remember when the cf model profiles got kicked off of youtube. They complained about that in a PA as well.
Is Pete wearing a snorkel or is that just a beer bong accessory?
I have no complaints about cf doing some appearances in LV. If the models don't mind it, it seems like a good move. cf was always so closeted (private) in FL; it's nice to see them let their hair down a little. It's also good for LV. It could stand to be a little gayer. Most of LV acts like there aren't any gay folks in LV.
JMG, I hope Pete re-watches the masterpiece "Showgirls" in these strange times at CF. I would hate to hear Harper pushed him down the stairs or Brian throw marble like beads in Pete's path while he is enjoying his wine.
P.S. If I found Connor splayed out on my bed like that I would be a happy man. Congrats to his wife.
