Director's Note: When I first introduced A Thing of Beauty, I stated, "It's my hope that these short films are a candle in the dark for anyone who doubts that the love between two men is anything but a thing of beauty."
But as the project progressed and took on a life of its own, it connected me with the idea of "life" and the things that make it beautiful.
For years, I had compartmentalized many parts of my "life"-- work, family, being gay, sex, and the list goes on. Often, I'd find myself exhausted from just the management and reconciliation of all my states of mind-- being something or acting some way I thought was expected of me. I finally realized I was just another hamster on the hamster wheel of life. ENOUGH!
Every day, I work hard to free myself from a way of being that caused me to live in an inauthentic state. The first thing I do every morning is speak out loud the things I am grateful for. It's a powerful inoculation to the negativity that seems to overtake our daily thoughts.
When RJ, Benny and I set out to make A Thing of Beauty, the key ingredient was Gabriel Clark. Having worked with him for the last three years has been an inspiration, a joy and a blessing. And in this film, "The Gift", you will see why.
Description: "The Gift" is the third iteration of the A Thing of Beauty series. These short films have been a continuous exploration and tribute to the beauty within our lives -- whether it's poetry, music, nature, or the love between two men -- A Thing of Beauty explores the connections we have with the world and one another.
While the previous two installments expressed sexual intimacy through poetry, music, and imagery, "The Gift" begins with an interview with Gabriel Clark in which he talks about the scar on his head and the near-death experience that caused it. This episode evokes not just an appreciation for the things within our lives, but an appreciation for the gift of life itself. With Gabriel sharing a rare and vulnerable side to him, we're able to connect to him in a personal way that digs far deeper than just his amazing body and sexual prowess.
Starring in this episode alongside Gabriel are Colby Keller and JD Phoenix. Gabriel and Colby together make incredible sexual partners, but with JD Phoenix joining them later, the passion blurs into new territory as the three men re-appropriate the way they work together. Culminating in a sweltering double-penetration scene (a first for Colby Keller), "The Gift" showcases one of the most hardcore sexual acts in perhaps the most erotic way ever captured on film. After it's over, you might find yourself looking at all the intricacies of sex not as disposable porn scenes, but as visual documentation of gifts we all accept and implement in our day-to-day lives.
Cast: Colby Keller, Gabriel Clark, JD Phoenix

My life is still compartmental, so for me this was truly athing of beauty. Everyday is a work in my progress to be free of so much that hinders me. Thaank you for this and all you all do. -niner
This is actually a dream coming true. OMG! I always wanted to see a DP - scene with CockyBoys and this was even better than my imagination. Amazing chemistry between all three of them and all those moans and groans... just freaking hot. Loved the interview part with Gabriel because I always wondered where the scar came from and what actually happened. Thank you for bringing this in. This part truly deserves the name "The gift" because of many reasons. Not only the gift of life, but also love, passion, emotions and many many more. Thank you for this! :) -Noda_Flake
This was an amazingly perfect scene from beginning to end. It would be impossible to choose a favorite part because EVERY second counted in this one. Colby Keller, Gabriel Clark and JD Phoenix are all beautiful men with perfect bodies and sun-kissed shoulders. You can actually see the anticipation they feel for things to come, in particular the DP scene. Being the sexual person he is, JD’s desperation is so close to the surface. God I love him. When Colby let’s his smile loose, you know something good is happening to him. Gabriel is completely into this scene and having a great time too. He also has that continuous smile going. At 28:15 during the DP scene, when Colby is holding JD against his body, it captures the genuineness and trust these three have with each other. It makes you look back and appreciate the great body of work these men have. For the first time while watching a cockyboys scene, I couldn’t tell you what color the walls were, the bedding, the room accessories. My focus was solely on these beautiful men. The ending was perfect with happy smile and pats of congratulations. A good time was had by all (including me). -VivianTNJ
This was simply, amazingly Gorgeous! I've never seen any more beautiful than that. These three men are so clearly wonderful people as well as gorgeous and talented. The respect they have for each other is just as hot as the scene. I just Love this! It truly is a Gift. Thank you for making such a wonderful, beautiful film. -wow MMmmmmm
I'm just sitting here speechless. What are words?! The gorgeous scenery, the water, the music, Gabriel (oh god let me love you Gabriel <3) and then JD (a personal favourite)and his damn face.... it was almost too much for me to handle!! And then the DP. JD seemed overwhelmed at some points and Colby holding him, soothing him....OMG I cannot express how wonderful this whole thing was. I am so blown away again and again by Cockyboys vision and artistry. And how you keep topping yourself in terms of just getting better & better. This was amazing. So much realness, passion, TRUST between Colby,Gabriel, and JD. Just beautiful. -Zoodlemouse13
