Built to thrill
by John F. Karr
The godlike bodybuilder Von Legend explains why he made a pair of movies for filmmaker Ron Lloyd's Body Image Productions in the candid and gracious interview section of a recently issued DVD, which is Volume 2 of the company's Signature Series. The congenial hunk felt he'd fulfilled his goals and was at his peak. I'll second that emotion – he's phenomenal. What he doesn't explain is what impelled him to go whole hog, from posing and flexing his muscles to pounding and five-fingering his member. Not that I mind; I just wonder.
There's no indication that he's gay, although he does talk candidly about cock size in relation to body mass (and practically blushes). He seems oblivious to the double entendre when he says, "Look at the telephone pole across the street, and it looks small. But when you get on it, it's really gigantic." Well, you know you gotta have a big one for it not to be diminished when it hangs on a body like Legend's.
And that's the wonder. Legend, who has entered competition under the name Matt Davis, is 6'5" and carries 270 lbs. with single-digit body fat. Incredible. He's a reserved performer, posing smoothly with quiet confidence. The first movie on the DVD concentrates more on musculature than masturbation, though it does deliver the latter. The way I see it, you can only watch a guy fan out those latissmus dorsi so many times in a row, no matter how extraordinary he looks. I'm always impatient to get to the meat. But you know me – it's all about the bone. Fortunately, Legend reverses the formula in the second film, and delivers the best orgasm of the pair, a projectile gusher.
Legend promises at the end of his interview that there'll be more. But the rest has been silence. Googling reveals precious little info. With such a slim historical record, Von Legend might truly become legendary.
The very well-known Zeb Atlas has not been silent at all since filming his career-launching scene for Body Image in 2002. That and another solo episode are collected in Volume 1 of the Signature Series, along with an interview. Like Legend, he's str8, yet already feeling the call of gay money when he admits in his interview that he found "playing" in front of the camera "expansive." And he's been so comfortably and ever-more expansively gay-for-pay ever since. He, too, promises more in the future. And he's delivered, hasn't he? These Signature Series scenes show how hard work has already transformed his body (though he's certainly not as big as he's become). I find even more impressive the gift with which he was born – you can't do repetitions at the gym to build up a cock like Zeb's, with its thick girth and appreciable length, fulsome head and broadly flaring corona. These scenes, particularly the second, lord upon this most excellent cock from every angle, so you see for sure that it doesn't short you. The video does, however, clocking in at 40 minutes (29 of those constituting pose-n-play).
Neither minutes nor cock are shorted in Legend Men 1, a continuation of the company's Body Solo series. A little over two hours, it presents eight engrossing men in nine solo scenes. Boyish stud Braun Drek deservedly gets two scenes – he certainly triumphs over his unfortunate last name. Micah Alexis – pale blue eyes, fit-n-trim body, very long cock, and a copious cummer – returns for the movie's 10th and last scene, sucking and fucking with husky friend Eli. Since I'd wanted to suck most every one of the fine cocks Legend Men 1 presents, it was nice of Lloyd to satisfy that desire (at least at second-hand) by providing this capper scene of penetrative sex. I thought its cocksucking and rimming were juicy, and was taken aback by its barebacking. I just didn't expect it – although Micah's cock is so fine it's nice to watch it at work unsheathed.
Lloyd's men are handsome, high-quality guys; their handsome cocks are mostly cut, and classically shaped; size is not as important to Lloyd as quality. Lloyd's men are composed; he provides an environment that's a safe haven for their crescendo of sex. There's no faked excitement here, and no stumbling film craft. Lloyd's well-made movies are the epitome of what a sexographer's work should be. His website, though, is confusing to navigate. Persevere.
