Hi PUPS! I hope y'all are enjoying RoadStrip as much as we have enjoyed making it. I am so grateful and thankful for all the wonderful comments and positive reactions to the project. This week we bring you Episode 3: The BangOver.
Like any journey in life or on the road, you will not be the same person you were when you started-- especially if the road is taken with possibility and no expectations in mind.
The same can be said for our Max & Jake. Today I would not recognize the same boys I first signed to exclusive contracts almost 2 years ago. Both have become confident, smart young men who work hard every day to not live in fear, but rather in possibility-- men who understand that their actions have consequences, who now try to live in their word and in gratitude.
Their experience on the road to becoming "porn stars," and what they've become now-- two well known personalities-- is what RoadStrip is meant to represent. When watching this episode, you can see that Jake & Max are not the same lil' pups that could barely drive the RV in episode one.
The insanity that is thrown at these boys, and many others, when they first began to shine in the adult business is beyond your imagination. One day you're a kid from Connecticut-- trying to survive in the Big City and trying get into your favorite NYC night club-- and the next day you are Max Ryder, headlining and hosting at the biggest dance club in the city. One day you're Jake Bass, flying around the world with lines at clubs for your appearances, and the next day your mom is yelling at you to feed the dogs and take out the trash.
Being a porn star can be intoxicating, and some boys get too drunk and loose sight of what they want. They forget to be grateful for they have in the NOW, they take comments to heart, and they forget the best part about them is not always their body.
Max & Jake have taken an amazing journey, and I can proudly say both have grown, matured, and developed into proud young men. They acknowledge their struggles, they fight for their goals, they express their gratitude, and work every day to make that one better than the last.
Also, because of them, I must acknowledge my own journey. This project developed from behind-the-scenes tapings and turned into what you see now, and it allowed me to tap into a creativity that I had long ago put aside. It is their willingness, their drive and curiosity, that allows my team and I to create these fun, touching, and sexy films.
And as always, thank you for watching and supporting our work!
Love Always & Be Nice,
Max Ryder and Jake Bass have finally made it to their (final?) destination, Hollywood! With several events lined up for them to
attend, "Jax" are a hot commodity in the land of celebrities and spray
tans... but to them, they're just regular guys excited to see where
this crazy adventure takes them.
Even arriving at their hotel is a treat to Max and Jake -- they no
longer have to worry about being crammed in an RV and washing their
hair in the sink! But they can't rest for long because they're
expected to be at the Cybersocket Web Awards, they're first-ever porn
event where Max is nominated for Best Sex Scene and Jake is nominated
for Best Newcomer. Whether they win or lose, they're completely
awe-struck at the event where they're immediately recognized
everywhere they go.
The next afternoon is spent recovering and exploring their favorite
Hollywood landmarks before they head over to West Hollywood where
they're hosting Cocktails with the Stars. And it's here where they
meet Aiden and JD -- two hot guys that are just what Max and Jake need
after the chaotic past two days. There's dancing, partying, and even
Pepto-Bismol involved, all creating a night they'll never forget... if
only they could remember what exactly happened! Thankfully with our
film crews and photographers, Max and Jake are able to somewhat piece
their lives together during quite possibly the most hard-hitting
"bangovers" they've ever had!
