San Francisco's king of kink exposed
He's former Wall Streeter Peter Acworth, who's built the nation's most successful fetish porn producer, Kink.com, the New York Times says today. The San Francisco company commands a fast-growing suite of 10 S-and-M and bondage sites, though they all look pretty straight to me. Launched 10 years ago, Kink joins the growing number of gay porn outfits that have moved to San Francisco or opened here from scratch. They include Colt, Falcon, Titan, Raging Stallion, Hot House, Treasure Island and smaller pop-and-pop outfits like Factory Video. FOOTNOTED: I auditioned at Factory Video about four years ago after seeing an open-call ad in the B.A.R. One of the owners was all set to cast me in an upcoming flick. But boy, oh, boy, the pay was low: $300. And I wasn't even going to get to play opposite Collin O'Neal, pictured (above) on top of Johnny Hazzard.
