Please Come to Boston

Im not sure why this is the case, but there’s something about that distinctive Boston accent that I find incredibly sexy; maybe it’s all the JFK speeches I’ve watched over the years, but I’ve never quite figured it out. But all I have to hear is someone say pahk da cah and there you go. Back in my single days I used to love flying up to Boston and going to gay bars and so forth; it was one of my favorite places, and I hooked up with any number of hot guys.

Given that the northern BGEast compound is located just outside of Boston, there are a lot of Boston accents that appear in their matches…and Tommy Tara had one of the thickest. I almost immediately became a HUGE fan.

That flawless body also didn’t hurt. The Boss wisely had Tommy also wrestle in white underwear–even in the ring (see above)–which also has been a driving hot-button for me since the first time I noticed how sexy boys in their tighty-whities were, back when I was a freshman in high school.

Tommy not only had a thick Boston accent, a flawless body, but also had another Bostonish thing going for him–for some reason, to me he kind of looked like a Kennedy; with the gorgeous perfect white teeth and the thick brow ridge above his eyes.

And given the spectacular physique, the fact that I even noticed his accent and that Kennedy-like look (to me) is saying something.

Fucking LOOK at those abs.

Yes, tighty-whities were definitely the right look for him…but actual pro gear also looked good on him; I can’t imagine what wouldn’t, in all honesty.

Another thing I enjoyed about Tommy was his tough-boy attitude; which again, is something I always associate with Boston. Even when he was being tortured by an opponent, even as he was in agony in a hold or writhing on the mat, he was still defiant–he literally had to be beaten into the ground to have the attitude silenced–and usually, not even then. Case in point, the match in which I first discovered him, fighting long-haired stud Rolando in the mat room on Undagear 7.

Outweighed and over-matched, Tommy didn’t go down easily, and was defiant until the very end when he finally, bitterly, grudgingly conceded defeat. And after Rolando’s triumphant posing and taunting ended with his exit from the room, Tommy’s anger at being bested was on full display as he swore and pounded on the mat in frustration.

I FUCKING LOVED THAT.

He fought hard, won some and lost others…and I wish he would have taped more matches.

Thanks, Tommy, for your time putting your body on the line for us fans.

I Will Remember You

I’ve been a fan of BGEast for nearly thirty years…which is pretty remarkable.

One of the great things about BGEast is the history there. They’ve been producing amazing wrestling videos of all kinds of matches with all different body types and match-styles from the very beginning; there is literally something there for everyone. Oh, sure, I occasionally commit adultery and buy a match from another company–but overall the quality isn’t as consistent.

And periodically, there’s a sale on the Arena that reminds me of a match I loved and haven’t watched in an eternity.

Case in point: Fantasymen 22, with the ring battle between Antonio and Sean Ribeiro.

Fucking hot bodies, amirite?

Professional wrestling–and to a lesser degree, boxing–was like porn to me when I was a kid trying to come to grips with my sexuality. Wrestling was always a major turn-on for me; so much so that I was afraid to actually go out for the wrestling team (when I was in a high school that had one) because I was always afraid I’d pop a massive boner in my singlet. ( I am now aware that’s a common occurrence; young men and body contact, of course it’s going to happen) It stands to reason that professional wrestling produced for the gay eye would, therefore, be the best thing that ever happened for me.

Alas, while sometimes ring matches for BGEast involve nudity and some erotic content, they don’t always…but even when they don’t, the song-and-dance of the match usually pushes every button I have and I have the desired physical reaction.

Initially, I purchased Fantasymen 22 for long-haired wrestler Rolando, who has a fantastic underwear match with Tommy Tara on Undagear 7 (a match I also need to revisit), and as always discovered some incredibly hot wrestlers that were new to me–including Justin Pierce and Nick Archer.

But the first match on this tape, the Antonio-Sean Ribeiro match, really caught my dick’s attention.

The minute Antonio came into camera range I was sold. There’s something about him that’s just ruggedly masculine; the thing that turns my crank. He was also wearing leather chaps and a cowboy hat; he was working that cowboy gimmick like nobody’s business…and I’ve always had a thing for cowboys.

It was also a ring match…and all he had on was a thong that emphasized just how perfectly shaped his hot ass was.

(Aside: I vote for more ring matches in thongs, jocks, underwear….pro gear is fine, I love it and its also a turn-on trigger for me, but other gear in the ring gives it a more, I don’t know, underground just two guys getting together for a good time feel….I loved the Hard Pros series, but that’s a subject for another time.)

Sean was no slouch in the body department, either–but in his peach square cuts (which I assumed correctly would come off during the match, also revealing a thong) his trash talk didn’t seem as meant; more like kidding around, but when Antonio yelled WHOO and said “Im going to kick your ass” I absolutely, positively believed it.

And Sean–and his equally fine ass–had some great moments in the match; it wasn’t even remotely as one-sided as I thought it would be. But Antonio’s holds were just a bit nastier, meaner, more vicious and designed to wear a foe down to defeat…whereas Sean, while inflicting pain and seeming to enjoy it, didn’t go that extra inch or so to make it even more nasty and brutal.

I mean…

Both men, when on the receiving end, suffer beautifully, believably, and sell the hell out of this match.

And there’s even a brief while where it looks as though Antonio’s taunting words from the start of the match might wind up biting him in the ass.

There are so many stellar moments in this fight that it’s hard to pick highlights.

Yeah, this one is definitely a classic.

Sean, alas, never appeared again in a match for BGEast; Antonio only made one other match (in release, anyway), Hunkbash 8, which I’ve not seen.

It’s a pity. He was one hell of a hot cowboy heel.
