Raging Stallion Re-launches Fetish Production with the Highly Anticipated Release of “Industrial Encounters”
Timed to appear shortly before the annual International Mr. Leather (IML) festivities and appropriately released on Friday the 13th, Industrial Encounters features a cast of star players that includes Buff, Cameron Adams, Leo Forte, Drew Cutler and Doc Benway.
Buff's first directing gig for Raging Stallion represents a new direction for the performer turned director. "Industrial Encountersis a clear demonstration of why we brought Tony Buff onboard," said Chris Ward, President of Falcon / Raging Stallion Studios. "Buff doesn't just have an eye for fetish content, he has a unique ability to capture the trust and deep connection at the heart of fetish and BDSM play."
Set in an industrial warehouse space, Industrial Encounters plays out with the suspense of a thriller. Through the course of three interlaced vignettes exceptionally filmed with cinematography by Tony Dimarco, Buff weaves a story arc as dynamic as the cast of players. The film opens with Buff holding boyish Cameron Adams at knife point, seducing him into full suspension shibari from the rafters of a freight elevator shaft where the young man is left dangling helplessly from the five story height of The Shaft.
After Buff passes through the Electrical Room to instruct Leo Forte to cut the power to the elevator, Forte is distracted by Drew Cutler who wants to play, resulting in some improvisational bondage, foot worshiping and electro torture all highlighting the playful intensity between these off-camera partners. The intensity builds in Wet Storage when Buff runs into Doc Benway, who is lured into some heavy impact play, piss and brutal fucking. Finally, Buff returns to Adams in The Shaft, releases him from his bounds and rewards him with some of the most passionate love making ever captured in a fetish film.
All of this action is underscored by an original motion picture soundtrack composed by Maxi for Remixlabs. From the sultry almost foreboding sounds for The Shaft through the raunchy rhythms forElectrical Room and animalistic weight of the beats for Wet Storage to the tender yet haunting composition for the final scene, Maxi's score punctuates and enhances the entire film. Industrial Encounters: The Soundtrack, a 12-track audio cd has been released separately, and is available now for download through 100 online music sites, including Amazon.com and iTunes.
The first scene of Industrial Encounters will premiere on demand via FetishForce.com today, with subsequent scenes running weekly through Friday Jun 17th. The entire feature, plus bonus scenes, is also available on DVD on ragingstallion.com.
NakedSword’s "Golden Gate: The Perfect 10" Second Season Of Popular Series Returns to the Land of Impulse and Desire
San Francisco, the land of carnal desire, serves as the perfect backdrop for these scripted, sexually charged tales of the impulsive city. Originally released on NakedSword.com’s membership site, Golden Gate: The Perfect 10 is now available on DVD from Raging Stallion Releasing.
The all-star, grade-A cast of NakedSword’s Golden Gate: The Perfect 10 features NakedSword Exclusive Chris Porter and Raging Stallion Exclusives Tommy Defendi, Jesse Santana and Tony Buff, as well as Sage Daniels, Ashley Ryder, Colby Keller, Marcus Mojo, Jake Lyons and Riley Price.
Executive Produced by Tim Valenti, and directed, videoed and edited by world-class director Tony Dimarco, each episode of Golden Gate is a well-crafted vignette that brings together two disparate elements of the “city by the bay.” Penned by Dimarco and Jack Shamama, Golden Gate is an exploration of the sex lives of gay men living in San Francisco.
The 2-disc set is jam-packed with over six hours of hardcore content. Disc 1 contains all five episodes from Golden Gate Season Two and clocks in at over two-and-a-half hours of hardcore content. Disc 2 is packed with over two hours of solos, interviews, trailers, and behind-the-scenes footage!
“After getting such an incredibly positive response for our first effort, we really wanted to push the envelope with Season Two. The situations are grittier, raunchier, and more real, and I think audiences will really approve”, said Tim Valenti, NakedSword CEO and Executive Producer of the series.
“The second season of Golden Gate is spectacular. The script, the stars, the locations have taken the series to the next level, and I’m proud to have worked on it,” states director and Falcon Studios & Raging Stallion Studios president, Chris Ward. “The team at NakedSword is first-class and the quality of the series is a testament to their talent.”

Chris Ward and Steve Cruz recently filmed a two part movie entitled Giants. Part Two is now hitting the store shelves, following the huge success of Part One earlier this year. We sat down with this powerhouse director team to find out more about this landmark project.
Q. There are some very big names in this movie--including the directors! Giants Part Two stars Damien Cross, D.O., Angelo Marconi, Tommy Defendi, Donny Wright, Logan McCree, Francesco D'Macho, Rusty Stevens, and more. This is about as all-star as you can get. How did you go about selecting the cast?
Chris Ward: When Steve Cruz and I were planning this movie, we wanted to make a movie filled with superstars, so we got men from around the world who, to us, were the greatest stars of our industry. Each of these men is not only beautiful, but they have that special "It" factor that makes them compelling to watch – especially with their pants down! We decided to rent a villa up in the California wine country and invite a cast of superstars to come for a week and fuck. This was a few months before we merged with Falcon Studios, but in the back of my mind I thought let’s make a Raging Stallion, hairy, tattooed version of a Falcon movie. So this is Falcon with Raging Stallion type guys!
Steve Cruz: Yeah, if you combine the casts of part one and part two, you have forty or fifty GayVN Awards amongst them all! No other movie has ever brought this many superstars together for one project. Viewers should know that this is very good porn.
Q. Chris, can you tell me about each of these guys and why they are superstars?
Damien Crosse is not only hot; he is a filthy sex pig. His eager energy comes across full blast and in your face--and his body is prime time, with a nice dusting of dark hair that accentuates the curves of his muscles. His Cuban heritage shines thru and he is as sexy as fuck.
D.O. has been with Raging Stallion and Falcon for almost two years now, coming to us after a great career at Black Scorpion. This man is fashion-model hot--he looks like a runway model (he actually has done some runway work). His body is perfect and his cock in enormous. But what makes D.O. a star is his focus on sex. He loves ass--he likes to eat it, to watch it, and to fuck it.
Angelo Marconi is one of my favorite performers--I just shot him in Other Side of Aspen VI. Angelo is a trainer in LA, so he works his body every day and he is very, very developed. He is not, however, a giant muscle head--his frame is narrow and he films like a million bucks. And what a smile!
Tommy Defendi is one of the year's brightest stars. He is a bit younger than the usual RSS actor, but we had him stop trimming his body hair and we asked him to grow some facial hair--Voila! Suddenly Tommy was a real Raging Stallion Stud! Tommy also has one of the best dicks in the business, which he knows how to use. He is a delightful guy and we hope to be working with him for many years to come.
Donny Wright just joined our company as an exclusive. He is quiet and reserved, but man what a beauty! He is exactly my type of guy--thin, tall, dark, and handsome. He is wonderfully proportioned and a delight to work with. Donny loves sex, and that passion takes him to the top level of porn stardom.
Francesco D'Macho is another world-class actor. An Italian by birth, Francesco has had a long career, working at Hot House with Steven Scarborough before coming over to Raging Stallion. He now has his own company (together with partner Damien Cross) called Stag Homme. Like Damien, Francesco is really, really into sex, so being a porn star is natural for him.
Rusty Stevens worked with us for several months and made some of our best movies. His hairy chest, gym build, and classic face make him one of my ideals in terms of what a hot man should look like. I very, very much enjoyed filming him and his scenes will always be some of my favorites.
Q. Steve, give us a little insight into your experience filming Giants 2.
Steve Cruz: Shooting Giants 2 was so far one of the highlights of my career. The setting was tranquil and beautiful and we were blessed with ideal weather. Plus, the cast of top-notch professionals made the film one of the best experiences a director could ask for.
Q. Okay, so you had a great location, amazing shooting conditions and an all-star cast. Can you give us a little behind-the-scenes scoop on what happened when you put it all together?
Logan McCree and D.O. ignited sparks when they hit the set. Every minute was filled with dynamic chemistry between the two. I will never forget their perfect bodies entwined in the moonlight and how they were so present with each other building to sex so electric that the contact heat blew a light on set. Seriously!
Chris Ward's sex banquet came to life on the sunny porch of the ranch house property. He wanted to present a feast for the guys, and let that transition to a feast of sex. I love big dicks, so I was happy to go there with power fuckers Damien Crosse, Tommy Defendi and our new exclusive Donny Wright! Each of these guys has a special quality that I love to film. The scene is high impact sex; they literally stuff their faces at the 'table'!
Audiences will rave about the Francesco D'Macho and Rusty Stevens. They both brought that star power to their scene. They thought it would be nice to go out into the vineyard and have a special set up for their excursion on the grass – a naked lunch. Going with their input was a winner, because it gave the scene a natural hot build that fans won’t want to miss.
The moonlight was really spectacular when we filmed Angelo Marconi and hairy fucker Aybars! In my opinion, Angelo can do no wrong when he is on set, and he brings out the best in every scene partner. Aybars was no exception, and, in turn, he brought out the best in Angelo. The moonlight inspired the sexual animal in them both!
Francesco D’Macho and David V enjoy a glass of vino on the sun porch. Looking at them, you think they are so opposite. I was thinking, how’s this going to play out? Well, the old adage, opposites attract, proved true once again. Muscled, inked and hairy Francesco and slim, smooth and athletic David combined spectacularly, both taking it as they give it! Fans of foreskin will love this one, because that is one thing they do share in common – hot hooded cock!

Giants is a remarkable film which for the first time pulls together the industry’s biggest superstars into one major motion picture. Stars such as GayVN performers of the year Wilfried Knight and Logan McCree, join award winners Marcus Mojo, Damien Crosse, Francesco D’Macho, D. O., Rusty Stevens, Tommy Defendi, and Angelo Marconi in the all-star cast. Both directors, Chris Ward and Steve Cruz, have won numerous awards as well.
“We decided to do an all-star movie this year,” commented company president and Giants director Chris Ward. “Basically we found a beautiful estate and brought in the world’s top stars to fuck each other. Working with this high caliber of men is a real joy—one can hardly call it work. Working with Steve Cruz as my co-director was fun and rewarding as well. We have worked together for years, but this was the first, full-on director collaboration I have done with him. We think very much alike in terms of filming sex—I can barely tell the difference between the scenes I directed and the ones he directed.”
“Co-directing with my mentor Chris Ward on this project was a milestone moment in my career,” recalls director and videographer Steve Cruz. “Everything seemed to flow creatively, especially between this cast of amazing men. The sex was so electric between Logan McCree and D.O. that they caused a light to blow on set, I’m not kidding! Francesco D’Macho brought something extra to his scenes. A naked lunch on the grass becomes an energetic fuck fest! A big dick banquet between Damien Crosse, newcomer Donny Wright and Tommy Defendi satisfied my hunger for extra inches! At an elegantly set table they forget the please and thank yous- and stuff their faces and asses with all they got! Good times! This project, this caliber of cast is a young director’s dream.”
RearStable.com is the ever-growing membership site for Raging Stallion Studios. With over 500 scenes on line, the site has become one of the top porn destinations on the web. Gunzblazing head Brian Randall was excited about putting up Giants Part One on the site. “This is very high quality erotica and we think it’s just about the best content on the web. We are really pleased to be rolling out this blockbuster movie for our members during the month of May. It’s a great film and guys are going to go nuts over it!”
