Tom Judson, Formerly Known As Gay Porn Star Gus Mattox, Hits New York's 54 Below With 'Nature Boy'
As fulfilling as the gay porn industry was for “Gus Mattox” (who nabbed a 2006 GayVN Award as “Performer of the Year,” shortly before his retirement), Judson couldn’t be kept away from tickling the ivories for too long. In 2009, he premiered “Canned Ham,” an acclaimed “theatrical memoir” which paired personal anecdotes with colorful musical numbers and then some.
Video at the piano:
Miss Thing performs her cabaret act in a tank top? Attention whore much?
He's a textbook narcissist.
So, he was already positive when he started his condom only Falcon Studios porn career?
If he had any talent he wouldn't have done porn. The only people interested in seeing him are ancient porn addicts with a large VHS collection.
He's a nice guy, and a mediocre vocal talent. Broadway? Um, no.
It's like with actors or models (like Benjamin Godfre) who think they may not have a chance at making it big in their original profession so they make the best of the current sitation where they look hot enough for gay porn.
I met a theatre actress who did a porn film out of financial desperation. Then felt such self loathing, she couldn't have sex with her boyfriend for months.

Very average endowment. I saw him in P-Town with Varla. He was alright. Good luck to him.
[quote]Music, he says, was undoubtedly his first love;
But getting his cock sucked on camera for money, sure was a close second!
20 years ago was also when he hit his peak looks wise.
I find guys like Tom with his giant perma-grin, and worked-at breeziness obvious loons. Happy, confidant people do NOT go into gay porn, they just don't. Plus, the constant strip-teasey, semi-nude costume schemes of his shows belies a desperate need to be sexually objectified. Damaged goods, for sure.
Nothing more boring than a retired porn star who isn't buff of hot anymore.
His real talents are with playing the piano: he actually wrote part of the score to Whit Stillman's film "Metropolitan."
Who would go to this show, though? It's not like he was a major porn star like Ken Ryker or Tom Chase; and he retired seven years ago.
He was always a superficial, opportunistic ass. I knew him back in the 80s. He was a joke.

"Next week, on SMASH..."
More, r21! Give us details.
Thanks for the tip R19. Just got his book from Amazon.
One of the fun things about Datalounge. Discovering things you didn't even know existed.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
