What Happened To CocksureMen.com?

CocksureMen.com is a mixed condom/bareback studio that used to feature A-list gay porn stars like Leo Giamani, Zeb Atlas, Dean Monroe, Marcus Mojo, Topher DiMaggio, David Taylor, Brady Jensen, and Trenton Ducati, to name just a few. For the last six months, the site has been featuring models named John Parker, Marty Loket, Paul Fresh, Grek Baldwin, Bruce Ford, and Mark Lopez. Who?

Nearly all of the site’s recent updates have been random bareback scenes featuring even more random gay porn stars from eastern Europe (scenes that site owner Jake Cruise obviously purchased from a third party producer), which tells me that CocksureMen is likely out of content and/or no longer filming. Earlier this year at the Phoenix Forum, there was a rumor going around that JakeCruise/CocksureMen had been raided by Cal/OSHA for violating L.A.’s mandatory condom law, so maybe they’re moving production out of Los Angeles county?

Whatever’s going on, their huge catalog of good scenes might be enough to tide members over for now…but it won’t last forever, especially when they’re releasing bargain-basement clips that most people wouldn’t even watch for free on a tube site. Here are five recent CocksureMen scenes, all featuring people you’ve never heard of.

7Who could forget when Chris Hollander and Bobby Gest had bareback gay sex next to a potted plant?

8Fan favorites Luke and Marty Loket fucked bareback, too.

11Membership sales to CocksureMen undoubtedly skyrocketed when gay porn legend Mark Brown barebacked Jack Dobris on a purple blanket.

12Everyone will remember where they were and what they were doing when Reyn Story barebacked Thomas Grott on a couch on a roof.

14John Parker and Karl Rossi having bareback sex on a wooden table sent shockwaves through the gay porn industry.

AND:

Here’s a reminder of what made CocksureMen so good just a few years ago—the epic engagement party orgy featuring Brady Jensen, Kevin Crows, and Kevin Crows’ cum shot:

    They haven’t been doing well for a long time. Around the time you reported about them moving out of the “ranch” was when they cut their updates, let staff go and shut down production on their straight site. Also around that time the miss California stuff came out. I think they got screwed financially with their “exclusives” that almost all came from Pacific Blue Models. Some were moonlighting with other companies and a few more quit before their contracts were up. I can’t imagine that they have much of a membership base now. All of their good content is on the tube sites for free, and they don’t have the money to sue.

      The same can be said of all the other web-based studios as far as pirating goes. If they’re not on tube sites, scenes from Randy Blue, Corbin Fisher, Sean Cody, ChaosMen, GayHoopla, etc. are readily available to download in all available forms on so many sites. There’s no telling who is really suffering from it and who’s not by content alone. Sean Cody still is bringing some insanely hot guys with insanely good scenes. Randy Blue I know suffers from it. They make no profit from their paid memberships for their downloadable content, but they haven’t cut back on the performers fees and some of the added bonuses that the models get while being there to film a scene. They manage to stay afloat all through the webcam side of Randy Blue.

        Also, most of their better content is 4-7 years old, which in disposable porn years is a lifetime. Buying cheap content also eliminates having to pay travel and lodging for talent, not to mention their scene rate. The Big Daddy cluster of websites did that as well. Before they were flying in talent to South Florida to shoot a group of scenes in a short period of time. Now they outsource and eliminated the extra expense. The one website Jake Cruise is trying to keep up with (Hot Dads and Lads) mostly uses cheap, L.A. based talent, and only updates a week to 10 days. If you look at what they have put out in the last year, you will only find a handful of “bigger” names. Most of the models they use pop up on lower level bareback sites week after week.
        Off topic but notice how most of what Pacific Blue models gets involved in turns to crap. From the Jake Cruise exclusives, to the Bel Ami flops, and the pile of shit known as Dylan Lucas. Almost all of the models came from Pacific Blue.

    • They must not have the money to hire that company that combs that web looking for pirated content of its clients and when it finds said content it demands it be removed like takedownpiracy.com I know a few big gay studios use them and you don’t see their stuff on torrent sites.

    Mark Brown = Damian Dickey = Mirek Ceslar: this hot guy has been in the gay porn business since 2008. Excellent performer, always a hard dick. This is something that can not be said of many American gay porn models.
    Karl Rossi = Ivan Mraz. This hot model is the new guy on the block. Excellent body, great performer. This is something that can not be said of many American gay porn models.
    Chris Hollander = Libor Bores. This twunk really likes GAY sex. This is something that can not be said of many American gay porn models.

    Some people like to equate East European porn with cheap content. Even if they haven’t watched the scenes in question. Some are good, some are mediocre, some are bad. But if you think that Leo Gamiani is a great performer I guess you can’t be helped ….

      Every Eastern European gay porn model seems to have like 7 different names. Oh and the vast majority of the scenes are terrible. I used to subscribe to rubhim. When it got bought by bigdaddy the new scenes all looked hilariously bad. They barely move but moan loudly when you can clearly see the head is barely in. I usually wonder if I’m the only one that sees this.

      • Dutch Courage

        I agree that there are several problems with the BigDaddy scenes. First of all they want to have a conversation in English while 95% of the Czech models doesn’t speak decent English. It would be much better to do this in Czech but Americans hate subtitles and everything has to be translated. Second, they use only one camera to film with. Third, a model is contracted to do scenes for the different labels of BigDaddy in too short a time which results in a lousy scenes (with fake cum). For me BigDaddy is amateurish and that’s mainly because of the set up of the scenes and sometimes because of the models used. But if we look at the models Ivan Mraz or Damian Dickey that were in the Jake Cruise scenes: these guys are excellent performers. If they were American they could easily have worked for studios like Sean Cody or Corbin Fisher.

    • Luca

      I don’t think he mentioned Leo Giamani because he likes him, but because he was a star-level name that worked for Cocksuremen, that now features only names of no appeal.
      It’s to show the decline of the studio.

      • Dutch Courage

        How stupid of me not to think of that!!! My point was: you can have a big name but if you are a horrible performer you shouldn’t do ‘action’ scenes.

    At last, someone is talking about the mystery that is Cocksuremen. To me, this is the second CSM recession. The first one was more like a Great Depression. If you look at 2008, CSM was releasing scenes that were so hot, it rivals anything out right now. Summer Orgy is to me one of the greatest scenes in the modern era, even with the obvious performance limitations of Leo G (which were far less noticeable in that scene). That scene and nearly all the others on the site were bareback.

    Then look at 2010. Except for the Gay Coach series (which I adored, but not everyone would put Bo Dean on the same level as the guys from 2008), the quality of the models dropped noticeably. And from January to November (again, not counting Gay Coach), they released exactly two bareback scenes, both with Hayden Russo. There was no explanation for why Bo Dean, Park Wiley, and all these other models who had barebacked prolifically before were now wrapping.

    2011 was even more extreme — Kyle King and Morgan Black are very sexy men, but imagine if they turned up on Sean Cody without explanation, having only condom sex, and Spencer, Abe, and all the others just vanished? 2011 on CSM saw not a single bareback scene until August. I understand that not everyone cares about that, but if you launch your site with Park Wiley taking loads from a dozen of the hottest “frat” guys in the industry, and suddenly you’ve switched to middle-aged men like Dylan Now and Mitch Vaughn having only condom sex, you have an obligation to acknowledge that you’ve changed your business model.

    It’s not the first site to go to shit after producing/offering nothing but european models.

  • ThatsEnoughGravy

    But where is the photo of Grek Baldwin? Grek Baldwin, y’all!

    There have been a lot of scenes shot on that bedroom set that I thought were super hot. Nick Capra getting fucked by Vinnie D’Angelo, and Bo Dean and Devin Draz (maybe DD’s hottest scene; he was totally into Bo) are two that spring to mind. That Summer Orgy one Moondoggy mentioned is hot, though there are some duds with more or less the same cast from around that same time (the carwash one).

    But I never liked watching Jake Cruise himself. He always reminded me of Pepe Le Pew, and the model the poor cat, like a drooling letch pawing a model you could almost see thinking aloud: Think about the check, just think about the check. (Have you ever seen the ones where he has sex with someone in front of his employees, men and women? Poor Tristan Baldwin…) That model Michael von Steel was hot, but I felt sorry for him.

    I don’t think I have a point, just random comments.

    And, yes, several years ago, he was one of the most vigilant about piracy; even threatening people selling what he perceived as copies on eBay (no idea if they were or not).
