Drew Sebastian Meets His Match in Dolf Dietrich

We’ve just received word that the rumors are true: resident TIM bad boy stud Drew Sebastian has a new beau! Who, you ask? None other than 6’5″ tattooed muscle porn star  Dolf Dietrich. Could this pairing be any taller, more built, or more hung? We don’t think so.
Apparently the two men met on set for a couple weeks ago and have …

The highly controversial and poorly written “condom bill” that’s now working its way through the California legislature, known as AB 1576, has inspired a ton of reaction on the straight side of the porn industry, where condom use has been all but non-existent in the last few decades. But gay performers definitely need …

Straight porn blogger and shit-stirrer Mike South published a “guest editorial” today that is basically a vicious screed against homosexuality. And it’s inspired by Treasure Island’s recent poz-cum-fetishizing work Viral Loads.
Remember it’s that movie where Blue Bailey is the bottom in a 20-man gang-bang and they whip out a turkey baster and a …

Overseen on HBO: Do the Silicon Valley Boys Have Something To Admit?

HBO launched it’s fictional account of six young men who founded a startup company in Silicon Valley this year. The series is such a hit that it has already been picked up for a second season that will follow it’s supposedly straight characters further as they attempt to make it big in the tech capital of the United States (about half an hour from TIM’s headquarters in San Francisco). We couldn’t help but notice the nod to Treasure Island Media in this scene where geeky Erlich Bachman is emerging from the shower in his robe.

Why I Don’t Want Condoms: A Porn Performer’s Perspective

My decision to do porn wasn’t an easy one. I spent months debating and talking to people: girls, agents, directors, my parents, my boyfriend at the time. I made many pros-and-cons lists.

Adult performers are a highly stigmatized population, and there may be a concern relying that on Truvada and testing alone is an irresponsible choice compared to using condoms.
