NakedSword.com has named gay adult star Owen Hawk 2006 NakedSwordsman.
Hawk – who has made films for Falcon, Buckshot, Titan, Hot House, and Lucas Entertainment – was named Performer of the Year during the 2005 Grabby Awards. He has founded his own production company, Dark Alley Media, during the same year.
“Owen Hawk isn’t an ordinary porn star,” says Tim Valenti, president of NakedSword. “Not only has he worked with the top studios in the business, he had the ambition, talent, and drive to make his own production company a success. We’re proud to name this sexy mogul our 2006 NakedSwordsman.”
Mutiny, the first video released by Dark Alley Media, debuted on NakedSword.com in July 2005 and has remained a consistent favorite among members. Dark Alley Media’s follow-up video, Owen Hawk: Unleashed has performed similarly well. Even with its limited number of releases, the small production company managed to score five GAyVN nominations, including Best All-Sex Video and Best Leather Video for Unleashed and Best Specialty Release (Extreme) for Mutiny.
Owen Hawk is the third NakedSwordsman in the company’s history, joining previous titleholders Ben Jakks (2005) and Marcus Iron (2004). NakedSword chooses its NakedSwordsman from 12 porn stars chosen (one each month) for the site’s Dream Team during the preceding year. The NakedSwordsman is selected based on breadth of work, physical appeal, critical acclaim, and contributions to the gay adult industry.
