Mr. Bryan Slater

If there are two things that I love in a porn, it's doctors and dads. As luck would have it there's a new flick for your dick that's called just that. One of the stars of "Doctors and Dads", sexy porn daddy Bryan Slater, let us examine him and his work via phone interview in anticipation of the movies release (out now).

AA: So tell us about your new film "Doctors and Dads":

JK: It's a Joe Gage movie, he directed it for Ray Dragon who's producing. And I've worked with Joe a lot. Joe and Ray, lately, have been exploring the whole upper range of ages in gay porn. Just last year Joe Gage won best director at the GayVN awards for a film called "Dad Takes a Fising Trip", and although I don't know that it was ever verified, that it's one of the few mainstream releases that has older porn actors in a movie. And he was actually nominated for best actor for his work at the GayVN, which is really kind of cool. So this is kind of continuation of that. The gist of it is, I play a doctor, and Spike plays a father who brings his son, played by Black Alexander, into my office and the father's concerned that he, the son, is maybe a little hornier than he should be and its up to me to examine him, and to convince him that there's nothing wrong. Of course I take advantage of both of them.

AA: Do you prefer doing movies where there's a little bit more plot? I ask because as viewers I know a lot of people have a preference.

BS: It depends. I've certainly done quite a bit of both and Joe Gage tends to be very scripted. And every one else...

Daddy Pride

I was 19 years old when I attended my first Pride. I had come up to New York City from Philly, with my mom's permission, and stayed with an older group of gay friends who had taken me under their wing. What I experienced that weekend was nothing short of exhilarating. Being surrounded by an entire community of likeminded individuals celebrating who they are for all the world to see is an incredible feeling. There's a euphoria that washes over you that I felt that first year and haven't lost since.

As the years have passed, I still haven't lost that excitement for my favorite time of year. Each year my pride has grown exponentially and as I've gotten older my confidence in being an out gay man has solidified. But this being Daddyhunt, I thought we could take a look at another kind of pride, that of the Daddy/Hunter variety. Because of the stigma that can be associated with being a Daddy/Hunter, I say it's high time we started showing our Daddy pride. And what better place to start than here?

I'm not ashamed of liking older men. All too often I'm given judgey looks for the kind of guys I like. Like there's something wrong with dating someone 10-20 years my senior. And I'm sure it's the same for the Daddies. Like what we're looking for in our respective older/younger partners can't be as fulfilling as being with someone our own age. And to that I say, loudly, "MY NAME IS ROB AND I LOVE OLDER MEN!" Also, "Fuck You!"

So on this month of Pride celebrations, while we celebrate the beauty of our individuality and sexuality, let's not forget to fly our...

Daddy's Feet: A Love Longevity Story

On the surface, it sounds a little far fetched that taking care of your feet can have a significant impact on your longevity and quality of life, but the connection is quite logical: Hip fractures are one of the most common routes to the off-ramp of life. And many hip-breaking falls are caused by loss of balance, which in turn is often caused by loss of sensation in the feet, which itself is frequently caused by an accumulation of calloused, dead skin on the heels and soles of the feet. Conscientious foot care = better balance = fewer falls = unbroken hips = longer, better life. I first read the connection in The Way We Age Now , A New Yorker Article I highly recommend for anyone interested in maintaining their best health as they grow older (which I hope would be all of you).

If you're a man of action more than words, than buy yourself a foot file, and get to work on those feet. There are three different styles currently on sale at Avon as part of this week's huge Buy 1, Get 1 for 99¢ FootWorks sale. While you're there, you might also pick up some of the Marine Salt...

Evolution of Marriage

I promised myself I wouldn't get my hopes up this time. After several failed attempts at bringing marriage equality to New York, I wasn't going to put myself through the elation and subsequent devastation of prospective gay marriage bills past. But here I am waiting with baited breath for Albany to make a decision one way or the other. We should have known by last week whether or not gay marriage would rain down upon the state, but now things have been delayed even further. We're just one vote shy of making history and granting marriage equality to more than 42,000 New Yorkers. And being the largest state to make it legal, this could be the beginning of something even bigger. But we've got to keep the pressure on.

That's why we're calling on all our Daddy and Hunter friends, especially those in New York state to call these senators now and ask them to vote in favor of gay marriage. Opponents of gay marriage, like asshats who would rather give up a Super Bowl win than let gay marriage pass, are out in full force and our voices of support need to be heard. With the vote taking place this week at any second, apathy just won't do. Whether you want gay marriage for yourself or not, we should all be afforded the right to choose for ourselves.

Please call and voice your support:
Senator Gregory R. Ball of Putnam County (845) 279-3773

Celebrating Dad's Day at Folsom Street East

We were excited to celebrate Dad's Day at the 15th Annual Folsom Street East Festival, the largest outdoor fetish street festival on the east coast. Along with our partners Mark Nelson Events and Asbury Park Events, we got the chance to meet tons of hot daddies and hunters geared up in leather, rubber, and anything and everything you can imagine.

Folsom has become a tradition to meet other fetishists, feed your curiosity, see (and experience) something new, or simply have fun with friends and enjoy a beer. We also got a chance to meet some Daddyhunt members (some who brought along their partners that they met on our site!). Below is a pic of two guys who met on Daddyhunt four years ago.

Big Ol' Boy

When John March came up with the idea of a new brand of apparel line for bigger boys, he was prepared to face an uphill battle. These days, coming up with an idea that hasn't been thought of already, or for that matter a url that hasn't been taken, is hard to come by. But buoyed by encouragement from seasoned professionals and friends alike, John created Big Ol Boy. As it turns out the more he researched, the more he found that there was a huge, no pun intended, market for this kind of clothing line. A graphic designer of over 30 years, and a member of Daddyhunt, he brings a mix of playful and macho to his designs, which include t-shirts, baseballs caps, and long sleeve.

When I asked John what it meant to be a Big Ol' Boy, something they affectionately called larger guys in Southern Oklahoma where he grew up, he said that it was really more of state of mind more than anything. Whether you're big or heavy set, beary, tall, muscular, or a regular size guy with, shall we say, some other big asset, the Big Ol' Boy has got you covered. Big Ol' Boy plans to roll out more and more pieces every season so the site never gets stale and keeps people coming back for a visit. Keep an eye out for some new summer apparel, including tank tops, and some winter wear in the fall and winter.

And now on the the contest fun: we're giving away 5 sets of the Big Ol' Boy tees and hats in the above picture this week. Just let us know in the comments what makes you a Big Ol' Boy and you could win big. Winners will be selected on Monday and...

Daddy and Relationships 101: A Study Guide

I always hear guys say their relationship is the most important thing in their lives, that relationships are hard work, and that communication is the key to a good relationship. But most of us have only our families of origin and Hollywood providing blueprints for how relationships are supposed to work. We go to school for years to advance our careers, take lessons for sports and musical instruments, we even study for a driver’s license. Yet for our relationships, we’re just winging it with a little help from Dr. Phil. Make sense to you? Me neither.

My last relationship lasted almost 12 years, and when it started falling apart, I researched the top-rated relationship self-help books, bought a dozen of them and started studying. These three offered the best insight and actionable advice - even for an older gay daddy with good emotional intelligence. Think of them as Relationship 101.

Extra Credit: What are your recommendations for nurturing a relationship?

The Dance of Connection - Harriet Lerner writes primarily for women, but her focus on emotional communication skills is incredibly helpful. Putting her advice to work improved all of my relationships, not just the one with my lover.

Folsom East

It may not be as big Folsom West, but the wicked leather street fair of the East, makes for an incredibly kinky fun Sunday. Now in it's 15th year, Folsom East is back this weekend for all kinds of fun and debauchery. You'd think with all the bondage displays, beer and pie-eating-out-of-people's-asses contests that the party would be hedonism at it's best. And you'd be right. But very few people realize that all the proceeds go to gay charities like past recipients The LGBT Community Center and The Anti-Violence Project. So you can have your ass cake and eat it too!

The great thing about Folsom East is how casual it is. It's a place where kink and vanilla co-exist on one judgement free block. At one end of the street you're hanging out with your friends at the beer truck, while just down the line, you can hear the painfully pleasurable screams of Daddy whipping his man. And there's plenty of hot Daddies and Hunters on display in various states of undress, which can be the real draw of the day.

Help me out though, should I bring back my Black Party attire? To harness or not to harness. That is the question.

Folsom East takes place from 2 PM to 7 PM this Sunday, June 19th on 28th Street between 10th and 11th. $10 Entry. Keep an eye out for us, as Daddyhunt will be representing with lots of swag!
