Raging Stallion star Taurus Dean makes his directorial debut with a thrilling fuckfest set in a carpentry shop, where the tops sprout wood the size of two by fours and the bottoms get their holes hammered.
Like an expert furniture restorer stripping away layers of paint from a cabinet, Tough as Nails strips away some of the recent excesses of gay porn leaving nearly three hours of brilliantly photographed, hot, hard, hairy, hung men fucking each other senseless. Thereâ€™s plenty of great cock-sucking, rimming, and even two solo sequences, but at its core Tough as Nails is a fuck flick – and one of the best in a long time.
It opens with French Hercules FranÃ§ois Sagat sanding down a butcherâ€™s block. This video may be set in a wood shop but those shoulders are definitely granite. Heâ€™s ripped, hairy and intriguingly tattooed with an inked skullcap. In comes the much leaner Rick Gonzales, and you assume heâ€™s going to get fucked – the bigger guy usually tops the smaller. But then the pants come off, and while Sagat has nothing to be ashamed of, with a sturdy cock that curves upward, Gonzales is fucking huge.
Sagat does an admirable job getting half of that Latin monster down his throat, and Gonzales sucks him off in return before he lubes up Sagatâ€™s hole and puts on his rubber. (Note: Major props to Taurus. Raging Stallion has bred controversy for simulating barebacking, so this salute of safer sex is very gratifying.) But then comes the fuck, and trust me – youâ€™re not going to get any farther past Tough as Nails in your first viewing. Itâ€™s incredible. Most of it is positioned with Sagat bent over, and with the camera behind and below them, filming in gaspingly, excruciatingly, (porno)graphically detailed close-up. Periodically the camera switches to facial reaction shots and the look on Sagatâ€™s face is unforgettable. Forget your chafed cock – your asshole will hurt from watching this scene.
After such a spectacular beginning, Taurus changes the pace with a scintillating solo scene. Michael Vincenzo is a luscious young man who you will eat alive with your eyes as he oils himself up, plays with his cock, fingers his ass and finally shoots all over himself.
The heat ratchets way up with a threeway thatâ€™s heaven for hairy-chest lovers. J.D. Kollin, Randy Manroot and Steve John are working over their stations, but they would rather work over each other. Thereâ€™s much more emphasis on oral here, with John doing most of the sucking, then Manroot, and then Kollin whoâ€™s usually standing above them both, talking a blue streak the whole scene long. In fact, itâ€™s at least ten minutes before we actually see Johnâ€™s cock, and itâ€™s worth the wait: long, thick, and heavily veined. The sucking has its effect, as both John and Kollin cum – Kollin hands-free.
When the fucking does begin, again, the older, beefier guy is the bottom of the scene, in three fucking-sucking positions. First John gets on his hands and knees, taking Manroot down the throat and Kollin up the ass. Then he sits down on Manroot and chows down on Kollin. Finally, for another neat twist, the fucker is also the sucker, as John lies back and lifts his very hairy legs up for Manroot to fuck him while he â€“ Manroot – sucks Kollin. All three shoot copious loads over Johnâ€™s chest. Semen must be a wonderful hair tonic.
Huessein and Sean Harris make a perfect pairing. If Sagat was a French Hercules, Huessein is an Arabian Samson covered in a Persian rug of thick silky black hair. Harris is no slouch in the beef section and heâ€™s got a nice chest mat, but otherwise, heâ€™s much smoother, and his skin is much lighter. So when Huessein shoves him over a lathe and lifts one leg up for a scene that is basically one long fuck from behind, itâ€™s a great visual study in contrasts. Also, theyâ€™re both powers, as in power top and power bottom. The way Huessein pile-drives an ass would make any other man faint, but Harris only begs for more. At one point he reaches back and stretches his hole so wide it looks like he could take Huessein and Kollin and Gonzales simultaneously. If there had only been a fist around…
Sagat returns for another solo scene, and it gives the camera a better chance to show us this incredibly beautiful man. His body is near perfect, and his Gallic facial features and thick lips will send you over the edge. This man has no inhibitions. Sagat squats down wide to give the camera ample exposure to a very ample hole. A gay wag once praised the asshole as the “rose window” of the male body. This sight will have you singing “Hail Mary!”
For all the hot sex thatâ€™s come so far in Tough as Nails, everything has built up to the final scene with Manuel Torres and Taurus, directing himself. If it doesnâ€™t get a Best Sex Scene nod, get out the lawyers! Taurus plays the shopâ€™s Human Resources director who finds Torres sleeping. Torres needs to keep his job, so he lets the boss blow him. Hey, its happened before, but then Torres starts rimming the boss, thatâ€™s taking things a bit far for job security.
But why let the boss fuck you when you can fuck the boss? And so begins what can only be described as an anal event of near epic proportions. It lasts through seven different positions and multiple camera angles, including some even Iâ€™ve never seen before. No matter what Torres gives Taurus, he takes more. Several times Taurus the director pulls the camera back to show their faces, and itâ€™s clear theyâ€™re enjoying themselves and each other, smiling and kissing as theyâ€™re furiously fucking. Both cum at the end but by that time it’s almost anti-climactic. Youâ€™ll have shot your wad long ago.
Tough as Nails ends with a strong safe sex message from Taurus himself (more props) and DVD extras are limited to hardcore previews of Manifesto, Pokin’ in the Boys Room and Party in the Rear. There are a few sound synch problems here and there, as guys say “fuck me” without their lips moving, but youâ€™re not buying Tough as Nails for that stuff. Youâ€™re buying it for the sizzling performances by a cast of hot, masculine men, the incredibly shot, up-close videography by Ben Leon and the stunning direction by rookie Taurus Dean, who clearly has a new career ahead of him.
