Leave it to Michael Lucas to be the one to shoot the first porno on this infamous gay resort since the early '80s. Shot entirely on location, Fire Island Cruising fittingly captures the Island's sexually-charged energy against it's remarkably unique landscape. And with a star-making debut by Chad Hunt and the GayVN Award-winning return to the screen by Michael Lucas, what more could you ask for to seal-the-deal on this franchise-spawning hit!
2-disc set, re-edited and remastered with tons of previously unreleased footage
Anthony Ferrat was another of our earlier Exclusive models. Now he's keeping busy bartending at a famous NYC bar and is pursuing other endeavors.
Besides his obvious physical attribute for which he's famous, Chad Hunt is possibly the most organized and professional model out there, and he has always been a pleasure to work with. So imagine our delight when, after a year-long hiatus, Chad decided he wanted to return to the world of gay porn, and he wanted to return as a Lucas Entertainment exclusive! His triumphant comeback (featuring a hot nature fuck in the woods) was in Fire Island Cruising Parts 7 & 8, and he made his directorial debut in Auditions 9. In 2006, the industry cockfight of the year ignited with a now-famous threesome for Encounters 3: Flash Point with Chad and new Lucas Entertainment exclusives Ben Andrews (who's also enormously hung) and Sal. Chad then took a dramatic turn for us in a pivotal role in Michael Lucas' La Dolce Vita, followed by a memorable football-themed pairing with hottie Brad Star for Encounters 4: On The Job. He and Ben paired up again for Michael Lucas' The Bigger The Better, Lucas Entertainment's first mainline feature of 2007.
What is there to say about Michael Lucas? A good place to start is the beginning: Lucas Entertainment founder and president Michael Lucas was born in Moscow, Russia, on March 10, 1972. He was raised in Moscow and attended college there, graduating with a degree in law. In 1995, Michael Lucas moved to Germany, then to France, where he began modeling and appearing on several European television programs and covers of many European magazines. In 1998, Lucas opened his own production company, Lucas Entertainment, in New York City. Later that year, he made his directorial debut with the well-received Back in the Saddle. This first production sparked the Michael Lucas "renegade" vision that is indelibly New York. Additionally, basing his company in New York City, as opposed to the more traditional Los Angeles, enabled Lucas to showcase the diversity of types and ethnicities found nowhere else. MIchael Lucas started Lucas Distribution, Inc. in 2004 and LucasBlog.com in 2005. Both are pioneering ventures in the competitive realms of adult video distribution and online media, respectively. In the summer of 2005 he released GayVN's Best Picture of the year, a high-budget adult film remake of Dangerous Liaisons, featuring celebrity cameos from RuPaul, Boy George, Graham Norton, Bruce Vilanch, and Michael Musto. In 2006, filming began on his most buzzed about film ever, Michael Lucas' La Dolce Vita. The production included a big-budget fashion show, a sextra-filled club orgy scene, a headline-making fountain scene with Vivid star Savanna Samson. On November 12, 2004, Michael Lucas was proudly sworn in as an American citizen.
Discovered by Michael Lucas in 1998, Mitch Ryder immediately proved to be a total sweetheart and great to work with on the set, so you'll likely be seeing this versatile performer again in future productions of ours. He's also a New York City local and is a manager of a restaurant here.
Nico Arroyo had originally come to New York on a vacation from his job in construction in Columbia, to visit a friend of his that lived here. While here, however, this masculine top-man decided that shooting a porno was on his list of things to do while in the city, so he did it. Unfortunately, Nico didn't speak a word of English (which created many on-set challenges for producer / director Michael Lucas), so his dialog scenes were cut to a minimum.
The original Fire Island Cruising was a troubled shoot from the beginning, but the ultra-sexy Fillipe Siren endured â€” and turned out a great performance â€” despite having an extremely difficult partner. With his big tattoo, beautiful smile, glowing personality, and that insatiable, uncut, pierced cock, we'd love to work with him again, but, alas, he has a successful career as a hairstylist, and he doesn't want to do any more movies.
