Our second stop in Europe was in Berlin, Germany!
Out of all places I have visited, I have to say that Berlin was filled with the most culture. From being able to drink beers on the street, to the bratwurst, the super exclusive underground clubs, to the music, Berlin has definitely made my top 3 favorite places I’ve visited list.
So if you don’t know yet, I am currently on a book signing tour for JJ’s & RJ’s book ‘A Thing of Beauty’ alongside my boys Jake Bass and Ling-Ling Karter, and our second out of the 3 countries to take over was Germany! I spent the first night reuniting with 2 of my good german friends that I had met about a year ago while they did an Au Pair program in the city. Seriously it’s incredible that my job as Max Ryder allows me opportunities such as being able to make and visit friends all around the world, and I’m extremely lucky. I sometimes forget that I’m not living the life of a normal 21 year old and sometimes I need to take a second and just take it all in.
Last Saturday I finally managed to hang out with my good friend and talented fashion photographer Sean P. Watters. He managed to capture me like never before in these artistic nude shots. These are only 2 of the many photos that will soon be out… the others are actually for a Fashion Story we put together so stay tuned ;)
Thanks for the support and love during my transition into the real world and the rebranding of my image- and special thanks to Sean!
See below the full set:
Hey guys! Where my European fraands at? I’m super excited to say I’ll be apart of Jake Jaxson’s European book tour. I’ll be doing appearances alongside the original Road Strip cast, with Jake Bass & Levi Karter. The tour is a promotional tour to promote the success of Rj Sebastion’s new coffee table book ‘A Thing of Beauty’ and Road Strip in which is now out on a special edition blue-ray edition set! It’s crazy how many successes we achieved in just a course of two years, so this is a big celebration for us all! It’s also the first time in almost 6 months that we all will be reunited! Especially with Jake and I, so we are excited to see all of our international fans! It’s going to be kind of an extensive 10 days of non-stop traveling and appearances, ALSO, it’s Jake Jaxsons birthday our first night in Europe — as well as his and RJ SEBASTIAN’S 15 years ANNIVERSARY which I personally think is the biggest success of the trip!!! So we have A LOT to celebrate! We start kick-off our European Tour this Friday in the heart of NYC, you can see below how to RSVP. Make sure if we are in your area you come out and celebrate with us!! The duration of the trip is from April 16th-26th, 3 countries, 3 cities! I’ll also be making the last of my trip in Amsterdam to visit some friends and just hang out before I come home to an exciting new job (More Info Soon)!
Below is a detailed list by city, location, dates and times! If we are in your area make sure you come out and say hi!
So this year was my first ever ULTRA MUSICAL FESTIVAL… Sorry I didn’t post about this sooner but to be honest I was still recovering from my 3 days there in Miami haha. Literally think I aged 2-3 years in a matter of two days o.O Okay I’m just being dramatic, but I haven’t had that much fun or lack of sleep in a while!! I just recently turned 21, and oddly enough I decide the year I’m finally legal, to do a detox ha. Pretty ironic eh? So Miami was my last big pow-wow before returning back to a sober life for a little while. So far I’m doing good, temptations are everywhere though!
Anyways, so I got a last minute invite from actually some of my first friends in the city, who are also the ones responsible for exposing me to the world of House and EDM djs. So going there with them, I was given the ultimate first impression and was definitely in GREAT hands. They had at least 4 parties scheduled a day from pool parties, to label parties, to parties that went into the next day’s pool party. So sleeping was close to none haha, but worth every second. Seeing djs from Richi Hawtin to Showtek, to Bassjackers to riding on boats with a great group of people made the last minute trip totally worth it. The world of EDM is absolutely like no other and I give props for those to even involved of the process of delivering any of it to us. That was deep… Anyways, I didn’t stay the whole Ultra sadly, I got there for the ending of WMC on Thursday, and left late Saturday. But, what other place would you go before a month of sobriety ;)
Below are some videos and cool photos over the course of my Miami Trip:
You know I’ve always been a fan of exposing some good music I’ve gained from traveling or came across, and recently I’ve been posting my spotify playlists on my twitter for you guys to check out! So below are some songs I’m currently digging! Check em out maybe you’ll find something you like!
Make sure you’re following me on SPOTIFY —-> http://open.spotify.com/user/1236641723
1. F For You- Disclosure Ft. Mary J Blige
Originally I was dancing to music in my headphones, but me dancing around where you can’t hear it will just make me look TOTALLY insane so i added one of my favorite songs off of LORDE’s new album and it worked surprisingly well..
Don’t take life too seriously! Surround yourself with people that make you laugh, love you incredibly, and did I say don’t take life too seriously?! especially when you’re young!! It’s the only time you can really live.
have fun, live day by day and smile a lot! it’s the best medicine.
*dedicated to my sister Carrissa who’s going thru a tough time and needed a smile! i love you!*
After a whirl wind of events from Hustlaball Las Vegas to Cybersockets in LA, I must say my favorite of them all was being Jake Jaxsons date to this years XBiz Awards at Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.
This years awards was hosted by none other than porn legend herself Jenna Jameson! Within in minutes of being there I saw porn legends from James Deen (Who recently starred in a film alongside Lindsay Lohan) to Asa Akira, and Lexi Belle! Let me just talk about the red carpet for a second… it was no joke. The carpet literally looked as if it was the Oscars. I was actually for the first time nervous to do a red carpet event!!
Anyways, the awards were mainly straight based having at least 80 categories from best girl on girl scene, to best sex toy, to best transsexual actress etc etc. It was basically everyone in the Adult Entertainment industry coming together to support one thing we all had in common, and that’s all things SEX!! It was such great energy and once again I’m happy I went.
You know something crazy, This march marks my exact 2 years being in this industry. It’s honestly crazy how quick 2 years of my life blinked before my eyes. I have seen many things, been many places, and met many people that I’ll surely never forget.
I’ve recently attended an industry based event in Las Vegas called Hustlaball. I had an overall great night just hanging out and supporting my boys Ricky and Levi while they danced part of the event.
It was an overall amazing night with all my CB family, but I witnessed something that night that absolutely was not okay and to be honest was down right fucking mortifying. I haven’t took the time in a while to express some of the things that have been on my mind, but I feel that I need to talk about this and see if I’m the only one that feels this way.
Ok so the whole world is talking about either Beyonce surprisingly dropping a new self-titled album or Dylan Sprouse’s nudes.
Personally I have time for both, but i just needed to get out that Beyonce doesn’t fuck around. That’s insane. 14 tracks. 17 music videos. Where does this bitch have the time… i barely have time. if you don’t count the 15hours that i’m either drunk, sleeping, or jerking off. i mean she just really is talented and now bitch has my resPect. my favorite videos are Blow, Mine, Partition… whoever styled her was on point.
So last Wednesday I hosted a party alongside my boys Levi Karter & Benny Morecock in part of a KICKSTARTER for raising money for my new favorite BK based web series ‘The 3 Bits’!
The 3 Bits is a BK based queer web series that surrounds three siblings Henry, Roman, and Madison Bits and their journey through life, sex, drugs, and well sex. The things those guys get mixed up in is not only relatable, but soooOoo hilarious.
Anyways, the reason we have teamed up with creators Max Freeman and Margaret Singer, is to raise money for their upcoming season! If we raise enough money not only will ‘The 3 Bits’ be back with another crazy new season, but a season if we make enough money, will also allow me to make a cameo as well!
The first time I ever traveled to Amsterdam, I was exposed to many things from culture, to a new language, to even a new lifestyle. But, one of the thing’s that I left with that is now apart of my everyday life was their music style. It was something I’ve never been to exposed to here in the US, although now it has quickly began to make it’s presence amongst the brooklyn natives, hippies, and underground clubkids.
Try to think of the perfect sunny day driving your bicycle around Soho with some of your closest friends. This type of music, that the site refers to in 3 categories: Vibe, Relax, and Deep, uses various remixes and perfected electronic instrumentals to create the perfect feel good tunes for any mood and anytime of day. The dutch would say the music is gezellig. Locals and foreigners alike will tell you that it’s a word that can’t really be translated, but it’s meaning refers from everything to cozy to friendly, from comfortable to relaxing, to just overall enjoyable or as I said above a good time!
“Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” – Mean Girls
When I first heard that I was like shit that’s kinda true haha and well that applies to all gay boys as well… I mean for the ones that aren’t already equipped with deep V-Necks and Daisy Duke Duke denim shorts, cause then, well, you’re already a slut and you should just dress up as yourself. Just kidding… But seriously. Halloween isn’t just an opportunity for girls to show off their best ASSets, but for us guys as well. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, although it does kinda suck now that I’m too old to walk around my parents neighborhood getting candy from strangers :/ Anyways, I’ve decided to come up with a couple tips that I personally think could help you with deciding on what or who to dress up as this year!
Well for those of you that care I figured I’d give you little 411 on what I have been up too lately. As you can see, I haven’t blogged in a little over a month and I’m kind of very upset that I haven’t been more persistent with my site.
The past 2 weeks have been kind of crazy somewhat for me with traveling and all, had to drive all the way to Montreal to go get Jakes dog Romeo and ran into a little trouble there, and now randomly jumping on a flight halfway across the world to Amsterdam for a couple weeks to just relax and meet up and spend time with some old friends. & things so far are going great. I’m spending my time here at his parents beautiful house north of Amsterdam where I’m learning how to golf, working on myself, enjoying some fresh air and well now revamping my site! I even got to meet up with a couple of old friends from NYC that now live here! So I really have no complains other than I need to get my priorities together… So first things first, some new content for my site, and for my fans here in Amsterdam I’ll even be doing a couple of appearances while here at a couple clubs! I’ll keep you posted with that a little later! Anyways here’s a couple pics of what I’ve been up too while here, ENJOY!
…And no I am not talking about those guys in sombreros that trim the bushes of your front yard. Instead I’m talking about what URBAN DICTIONARY defined as “The act of shaving or trimming a mens balls or cock.”
So this a topic that at one point or another both STRAIGHT and GAY men seem to come across and has actually become more and more important in the bedroom. I mean it should be obvious that no ones like a mouth full of pubes when someones trying to give you a blowjob, especially if it’s their first one… talk about a scarring experience aye? But then again it should be obvious that shaving your cock to look like a 12 year old girls ALSO isn’t that great of an idea. But, HEY, we all have to learn somehow and like you I haven’t always been well trained in the art of MANSCAPING.
Very well written essay by Jake Jaxson on his relationships with us models….
“I mentioned in my essay, I Am Jake Jaxson, I was proud of what I do, but I’m also proud of all the people I work with. One of the reasons I chose to come out from the shadows and eventually bring myself into my work — literally showing my face — was because my partner, Benny, had done so as the Creative Director and blogger of CockyBoys, and because my performers do so every day. How could I ask them to put themselves out there if I couldn’t do the same?
This Saturday, CockyBoys’ Road Strip will be having its feature-length world premiere at the Philadelphia QFest. I hope to sit next to Jake, Max, and their moms as they watch with pride the hard work and possibilities their sons have created for their lives.
Dude. Seriously whether you hate it or love, this song is definitely Summer 2013′s anthem.
It’s like a big fuck you to everyone, everything, every person that’s tried to hold you back! Now back from what? Who the fuckk cares, it’s just nice to remind today’s society that our generation is a force to be reckoned with! My friend Veronica—> VEESAIDSHESAID described it as “The perfect chill summer song for smoking and light dancing.” Besides that the fashion in it is insane, Miley’s new makeover is pretty much everything. Hannah Montana who? I actually hated this song at first, but after the first 10 times having to listen to it all around me it has definitely took a toll with me. Check it out above!
WEeeeeeeE cannn’tt SttooooOoop, andd weeE woooOn’t sToooOp!
Make sure you buy your tickets to watch ROADSTRIP on the BIG SCREEN with us on Saturday July 20th at 9:30PM! You can get your movie tickets here —-> TICKETS FOR ROADSTRIP !
“Two of last year’s most-talked about special event guests make a triumphant return to QFest – this time as the subjects of a very special world premiere event. RoadStrip follows CockyBoys models Max Ryder and Jake Bass as they travel across this great land of ours from New York to Palm Springs in a rented RV. We soon see what happens when cameras are on them 24/7 and the line between reality and fantasy becomes increasingly blurred. It also heralds an entirely new genre in gay filmmaking. Having just launched their careers, the two adorable young ‘uns had barely shaken the eggshells from their tender shoulders when their prior film Project Gogo Boytook the gay adult world by storm, racking up a mountain of awards and instantly catapulting both models and studio to the forefront of the industry. This time you’ll see not only the two in so-hot-it-hurts sexcapades, you’ll be witness to interpersonal relationships flowering and unraveling, highly personal interviews, and one of the most revealing – and sidesplitting – desert “trips” ever taken. In RoadStrip, CockyBoys writer/director Jake Jaxson, along with his partners-in-business-and-in-life Benny Morecock, and R.J. Sebastian (who also lensed), creatively fuses gay pornography along with experimental art, cinema verite and raunchy reality, and have fashioned one of the season’s most visually arresting and exciting (s)experiences. – Erik Schut
Attending this very special world premiere event in person for a Q&A will be CockyBoys models Max Ryder, Jake Bass, Levi Karter and Ricky Roman, along with studio owners Jaxson, Sebastian and Morecock. Moderating the entire panel will be PAPER Magazine Editorial Director, fashion icon and well-known lover of all things gay porny Mickey Boardman.
Immediately following the Q&A you’re invited to come to Voyeur Nightclub for RoadStripping with the CockyBoys – a night of debauchery certain to go down in party infamy. Admission is a mere $10 for Voyeur members and $15 for guests. Come get loose with fabulous drink specials from 10pm to midnight and watch in slack-jawed awe as the CockyBoys get cocky right before your eyes – all under the deeply delicious and sleek swirling beats of Philly’s very own DJ Carl Michaels. Voyeur is located at 1221 St. James Street (between 12th & 13th and Walnut & Locust Streets).

These guys never fail to disappoint. They’re different, foreign, talented, and are 420 friendly… Nothing’s better than that in my book. I recently was shown their new music video for ‘Cookie Thumper’ and I’m obsessed. The fashion, creative approach, basically everything is what makes it my Music Video of the week! Enjoyy.

Recently I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michael Kleinmann, Editor-In-Chief of one of my favorite sites THE UNDERWEAR EXPERT. A site where you get the inside scoop on:
It’s a site that both straight and gay guys should have bookmarked on their Macbooks or Iphones. Below is a recent shoot I’ve did with them wearing this summer’s hottest underwear and sportswear. Also above is a recent interview I’ve did with them! Enjoy!

“We’ve been a fan of Max Ryder since we first saw a photo of him on Tumblr about a year ago. We then found out at the time he was the latest exclusive model for Cockyboys—the Brooklyn based arty porn company. We finally got to chat with Max and take a couple of pics. It’s often weird meeting porn stars in person, there’s a level of visual intimacy that is absolutely one sided and can lead to all parties feeling a bit awkward. However Max is so shy and polite and sweet that you can’t help but like him—he has no ego and put everyone at ease. He’s also super cute and unfailingly forthcoming as you’ll see from our conversation.”
As a lot of you know, recently I took a break from social media… it was the hardest thing to do, but I needed to get my mind back to being realistic. I love my job, and I love my fans… without having your support I wouldn’t be where I am today, so having a guy have the power to take me away from those who care most for 11 days was stupid. I had a very scary reality check over something and someone that I shouldn’t have. I’m sharing this with you, so you can hopefully learn from my mistakes, and unfortunately I can’t say this will keep you from experiencing your own, but hopefully provide a better way to deal and cope!
Most of you probably don’t know that I have been in a relationship for the past 9 months. These past months have been some of the best days of my life, but also some of the worst. I was in a relationship with someone who didn’t have integrity or honor their WORD. Now I bet you’re like wtf does that mean? Well, your WORD is all a person really has at the end of the day. So, keeping promises, or being honest are examples of honoring your word. Now, my ex was not a bad guy, just incredibly flawed. I loved him more than anyone I’ve ever dated my whole life, and at the same time I felt like he loved me more than anyone in my life ever did. But, he could never keep any of his promises, and would lie over the stupidest things. This break of trust and dishonesty caused me to be very on edge in the relationship & It caused me to become a very negative person. Always assuming the worse, always trying to JUSTIFY when he was wrong or lied etc etc. It killed me inside, and I started to live in a world of FEAR. The Fear of not knowing what his intentions were, or Fear if he was being honest… It really killed me. But, I stayed in the relationship even though each day I was becoming more unhappy and less positive. I wanted to trust him. But he just could never be honest with me. To me being honest is not that hard of a thing to do and quite frankly there is no excuse good enough for when you lie. For him there was always a reason good enough. & blinded by his “love” I always believed him. Even when he was wrong or did get caught in a lie, he would deny it and basically make me prove it to him EVEN THOUGH he was well aware of what he did. He basically made me feel like I was always wrong and crazy, & I hated it. My mind became my own worst enemy.
