Thanks to the the generosity of the folks at HustlaBall, Dirk and I performed at KitKatClub for the annual HustlaBall Berlin event. That club is pretty amazing… it’s labyrinthine, has a great sound system, and even has a swimming pool! The HustlaBall guys were great to us, flying us there and putting us up for three days at the Axel Hotel right in Schöneberg, one of Berlin’s gay neighborhoods. (Dirk had actually flown out a week early so he could focus on writing music, which he did rather spectactularly.)
The party was a lot of fun. It started out with the HustlaBall awards, which is a major porn award ceremony for the European gay porn industry. Dirk was nominated for best top — he’s performed in a few Euro videos in the past year — but that honor went to Angel Cruz. It was very cool that Dirk was nominated, though, and NakedSword director Mr. Pam (who hosted the event) invited him up on stage to address the crowd with his deep, sexy voice:
Later in the evening, the fine folks at Barcode Berlin dressed us up in their sweet gear, then Dirk and I performed no less than three live shows, one in the VIP area and two on the main stage. We flogged each other — which was interesting, because I don’t have a lot of experience wielding a flogger — and then we fucked each other in a sling that was conveniently placed on stage. I’m hoping to having photos and video from the shows soon (waiting on the HustlaBall guys for that). And once the festivities were over, Dirk and I took a few days to explore Berlin and take in some of the sights.
Here are a few pictures from the event and from our sightseeing excursions. We hope that HustlaBall Berlin will have us back next year!
