Okay, den!

Hmmm. Kayden Keller.

As someone who was a long-time fan of BGEast before going to work for them, both in front of the cameras and behind the scenes, one of the things I’ve always found interesting is generational change of wrestling talent; the kind of thing that can be described as, for example, “waves” (as one would call it in publishing) or “ages” (comic books: Golden Age, Silver Age, etc.). I was in the same wave with Alexi Adamov and Mitch Colby and Jobe Zander and Rafe Sanchez, to merely name a few; we came after the Josh Goodman/Cole Cassidy/Kieran Dunn/Aryx Quinn/Justin Pierce wave. There is sometimes crossover between waves, and it is difficult sometimes to classify which wave of new wrestlers someone belongs to, since the videos aren’t released in order of filming and sometimes, as is the case with my own match with Mitch Colby, are held back in the vaults for years. This makes the only way to do it by release; the only people who can truly define each wave are the Boss and everyone in the office, since they know when the wrestler first worked and when the matches were taped.

I’m always interested to see the new talent; to see how they match up against the wrestlers of the past and those who are still active but have been around for awhile. I am always curious which ones will be more at home on mats or in the gazebo or in the ring; which ones look best in which kind of gear, and which ones will go how far with nudity and eroticism and so forth. I often wonder where they came from, what they do in their day to day life, what drew them to wrestling on camera for the erotic enjoyment of fans whose names and faces they will never know. (The release of my match with Powergunz recently has made me philosophize about all of this.)

I’ve not really thought much about when the most recent wave debuted, and they’ve probably been around longer than I am thinking…but included in this wave (in my mind) were Ty Alexander, Drake Marcos, Colton Haynes and numerous others…and a young heel with gorgeous eyes who took the ring name Kayden Keller.

That is my favorite portrait shot of young Kayden; those are also my all-time favorite trunks I ever wore for the cameras myself–and I still am pissed at myself for not stealing them. Remember this?

Kayden even has the kind of facial hair I find most attractive.

Great smile, too. I also like that he doesn’t remove his body hair. Granted, he’s also not a yeti like I can be if I don’t at least trim on occasion, but I do like some body hair.

And that devilish smile! The twinkle in his eyes as he looks at the camera! Like he knows what he’s about to do to his foe and relishes it.

One has to love a heel who loves what he does.

Probably the only regrets I have about BGEast and my time there was missing certain wrestlers I would have liked to have worked with because, of course, they were before my time or after.

Methinks Kayden and I would have had a great time in the ring together.

And it would have been a classic.

Who doesn’t love gear?

I know I do. As RuPaul said, “we’re all born naked and everything else is just drag.” Part of the fun and eroticism of wrestling is the thrill of the gear; even if it’s just a thong or a speedo, if it’s the boots and pro trunks and pads and the whole ball of wax.

These were the first–and only–pro trunks I had made specifically for me. Both sets of trunks are actually mine; and those black boots were the first pair of actual pro boots I ever owned. Lacing them up the first time was a huge turn-on for me; almost as big of a turn-on as climbing into a ring for the first time. Here I am, wearing them for the first time:

The vast majority of my gear was purchased on-line, either from eBay or at various wrestling gear sites, like Highspots.

I loved gear, and I loved buying gear; I loved trying it on for the first time. And some of my gear wound up being worn by other wrestlers at BGEast–because I always brought my big bag o’gear with me every time I went to a taping.

Of course, BGEast has the most amazing collection of gear. Sometimes I wore theirs instead of mine. This was my  absolute favorite pair, which also looks fucking amazing on Kayden Keller:

I fucking love those red trunks. I should have stolen them, but then if I had, we wouldn’t have the treat of seeing sexy Kayden wearing them. Damn, he is a sexy boy, isn’t he?

And here’s Rees Wells and I wearing the same pair of trunks. How on earth we could fit into the same pair of trunks is beyond me–the kid is lean and trim.

Speaking of Rees, here we are in the same white speedo.

They don’t exactly fit us the same way, do they?

Likewise, these USA bikini trunks don’t look quite the same on me as they do on Bobby Horton:

It’s also amazing how different you can look in the same gear, at different times, based on facial and body hair.

Okay, I’m also a little leaner on the left. But it also has a lot to do with lighting and poses, too.

You can also look dramatically different from one video shoot to another on the same day. Believe it or not, both of these portraits were taken on the same weekend:

Pretty amazing, huh?

One last shot for you before I am done for today:

Have a good one, bitches.
