Director's Note from Jake Jaxson: Today I'm proud to release The Banker, part one of the five part miniseries Answered Prayers. Part one stars the stand-out CockyBoys exclusive performers Jake Bass and Ricky Roman, with a delicious cameo by Max Carter-- don't worry, you'll be seeing a lot more of Max in the upcoming films!
I was recently asked what Answered Prayers is about. My answer was simple: Fear... Fear's destructive power and what it takes to beat it.
It's a highly personal project for me. Earlier this year, when I was experiencing my own feeling of success and triumph, I still had these little voices inside my head whispering and trying to seduce me into actions based on fear, upset, and anger.
At night, sometimes I'd lull myself to sleep devising more and more intricate ways to "get even" or exact revenge on someone that's wronged me-- come on, we've all done it! You know: those devilish daydreams involving a co-worker, an over-zealous dance mom, your parent or sibling. Have you ever wondered where those little voice in your head come from? The ones that have the power keep us OUT of trouble and so often get us INTO trouble? Oh, these voices-- how they dance around inside our heads and whisper sweet nothings in our ear. They encourage and justify our every move, playing on our best hopes and fears like a harp from hell.
Answered Prayers is my response to those emotions-- those feelings that can bring out the ugliest sides of ourselves. Each of the five films are based on a human archetype:
Intertwined in each of the films is a family feud between two brothers, Jinks (Jake Bass) and Malic (Max Carter), ancient beings, each fighting for the hearts and minds of mankind-- HYPOCRISY, manipulation, fear, loathing, revenge, secrets, luck, and love, all highlight an epic struggle. A war for the Ages!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!
Let me also take this time to thank all of YOU, our members, friends, fans, affiliates-- Men & Women from around the world-- without your support of our films and performers, we wouldn't have the luxury to produce and experiment with films like this. Truly, thank you! And if you like what we are doing, please help spread the word so we can continue making our own brand of highly sexual entertainment!
Also, a big hats off to all of my performers! They've all gone over and beyond in their dedication to their work. Â Please be sure to thank them for their efforts! Like most other actors they rarely get to hear the applause.
Finally: Benny and RJ, one down and four more to go!!! LOL! All my love and thank you for everything! To my staff and crew -- don't kill me -- I will be sane again. I promise (I hope!). Cilantro (our film editor), I worship you! Thank you for getting inside my head and making it all work on screen. And Chris (Gogo) Harder-- if not for you I'd still be pinning ideas to my inspiration board-- you earned your Producer's Stripes and my lasting admiration. Thank you.
That's all folks. All my love!
Film One: The Banker From sea to sea, the earth is plagued with brilliant natural disasters, Acts of God, economic collapse, and bumbling political drones -- all broadcast on various forms of media at all hours of the day for the hungry and panic-stricken public eye.
But an Orwellian post-apocalyptic future this is not. It's the tail end of 2013, and drug-addled banker (Ricky Roman) finds himself at the center of a financial meltdown. Haunted by thoughts of suicide, a mysterious and unusual entity named Jinks (Jake Bass) appears to him with a pair of scissors, a mirror, a series of questions, and the hottest sexual encounter he's ever had.
Jinks carefully inspects the banker... dissecting, inspecting, studying... we wonder-- was Jinks satisfied or dissatisfied with what he saw? Jinks then starts shearing off the banker's suit-- meticulously, but at some moments brutally. The banker is left there to stand naked with nothing but his vulnerability... and fear. Jinks forces the banker to hold a mirror, to discover and analyze himself, as Jinks begins to discover the banker-- with his mouth.
What follows is an intensely sexual journey for Jinks and the Banker-- a transcendent experience for both characters.
Film Two: The Healer After transforming The Banker (played by Ricky Roman), the ever-mysterious entity known as Jinks (Jake Bass) faces an even bigger challenge: his bitter rival and brother Moloch (Max Carter). While Jinks lives and thrives on possibility and hope for mankind, Moloch gorges on the fear of man, growing more powerful in the process. Weary from his task, Jinks asks his three sons, Luck, Puck, and Abel (Levi Karter, Dillon Rossi, and Bravo Delta) to help him in his quest to save another soul from Moloch's powerful grip!
Once again, the inner workings of the human mind is the battlefield for our warring demigods, as we see a brief but powerful interaction between The Healer (Diesel Washington) and an over-zealous manipulative political pundit (Chris Harder). The Pundit is a man who finds no shame in abusing the generosity of his personal masseur and spiritual healer. But something has pushed The Healer past his limits, and we see the inner workings of his mind as he deals with a struggle within himself.
But it's not until Jinks summons his offspring, "The Sons of Chaos", does The Healer, hearing their siren song, begin to take a stand. With Luck, Puck, and Abel now coming together for greater purpose, an extreme power shift occurs and the healer full-on hatefucks The Pundit (literally) into oblivion.
When The Healer finally decides to give The Pundit the fuck of his life nothing could have prepared The Pundit for what he was about to experience. This is pure raw aggression that turns into an electrifying fuck between two men who hold nothing back. After about an hour of some of the most impressive deep-throating ever caught on camera it was time for The Healer to show The Pundit's hole what "eating ass" is all about. The Healer made The Pundit spread his legs wide open and dived into his hole with full force as if he had been waiting to do that his whole life. The Pundit was finally starting to get it - he had no control over his body and there was no doubt that The Healer was in charge now. The moment The Pundit realized that he had no other choice but to take The Healer's big dick in his holes any way that he decided to give it to him was the moment The Pundit got owned! Having accepted that fact, The Pundit was ready to experience the fuck of his life. And that's just what The Healer was waiting for! Throwing him from one position into another, The Healer showed The Pundit NO mercy whatsoever! And as is fucking him endlessly in every imaginable position wasn't enough, The Healer had to mark his property by covering The Pundit's entire face with his cum! They say it's a time for miracles and the fact that The Pundit survived (and actually enjoyed) what The Healer put him through is nothing short of a miracle indeed! Merry Christmas, everybody!
Film Three: The Bully Sebastian Caine has been living a double life -- by day he is a tightly wound TV pundit preaching anti-gay conservative rhetoric, and by night he's doing booty bumps and sucking cock with his personal masseur. If there was only one word to describe Sebastian Caine, it would be "hypocrite."
Unbeknownst to him, he is also the next pawn in an epic rivalry between the mysterious demigods and brothers Jinks and Moloch. Caine's pointed remarks on a news broadcast help feed the fear mongering that gives Moloch so much of his power, while the well-meaning Jinks grows weaker as hope and possibility start to fade from the hearts of man... until he summons his three sons, the Sons of Chaos, all in hopes of fighting another battle.
Puck, Luck, and Abel are en eccentric trio of brothers -- playful in spirit, mischievous in nature, and wild at heart. They at times lack discipline, but when focused, their power is unmistakeable. And Sebastian Caine's double life, hypocrisy, and manipulation have now gotten him a one-way ticket to their reality. They use Caine's sexual lust and desires (which include rope, tape, and even saran wrap) for greater purpose, all the while exposing him as a master of lies. But whether or not Caine will continue to live a lie is a decision only he can make once the Sons of Chaos are through with him.
Beautifully shot and edited, The Bully is the third part of Jake Jaxson's six-part miniseries Answered Prayers, a 21st century morality play that explores the inner workings of everyday human archetypes and the fears that haunt them.
Director's Note from Jake Jaxson: Have you ever found yourself yelling at your TV screen (or computer), "Liar? Asshole? Hypocrite?" when you see that political or public figure up at the mics trying to defend the seemingly indefensible?
It's that moment when the lie comes out of his or her mouth, and EVERYONE else knows the truth except the poor sad sap on camera.
Lest we forget Ted Haggard, the wealthy televangelist caught booty-bumping meth with a male escort. Or Larry Craig, the right-wing senator who plead guilty to cruising in an airport bathroom. Or George Alan Rekers, the southern baptist minister who hired a rentboy to help him "carry his luggage."
The list goes on and on, but what these men have in common is that they actively preached and worked particularly against gay rights and advancement -- the classic case of "do as I say not as I do." This is why their falls were so swift and yes... delicious to watch.
I admit -- I have a very dark place in my mind that holds the keys to my ideas of the perfect revenge? And yes, I have cooked them up time and again in my mind like a chef with his secret recipes.
When I see these guys up on the stage, on TV -- with their holier-than-thou smug faces, moralizing for profit and ambition -- my mind races and wanders and I daydream, wishing that a sex tape depicting exactly what they are preaching against would fall out of the sky and magically broadcast itself uncensored on Fox News? Sadly, that never happens. But time and time again, these "moralizers for profit" face disgrace -- for it is always the hubris of a hypocrite that will do them in.
Yet before you think I'm now some demoralizing asshole doing the same, know this -- I am also a hypocrite. I am a liar. I am selfish. I moralize. I live in fear. I am jealous. I am impatient. I am all of this and more.
Many believe the characters portrayed in ANSWERED PRAYERS are based on people I dislike, and in fact they are. They are based on the worst parts of me -- struggling every day to become better, more loving, stronger, and most importantly, at peace with myself.
This project -- like the mirrors seen throughout the story -- are a constant reminder to myself: Look. See. And be.
