How the Sausage Gets Made

In the past a casting like Deen’s was worth serious money for a star. Doc Johnson molds few male performers, but when the actor Jeff Stryker was casted 20 years ago, his contract guaranteed a fee of $200,000 up front plus royalties. These days that figure is closer to $20,000—the market is saturated with performers—though there are ways to bump a fee.

“Let me ask you a legitimate question,” Chad said, balancing a pen between his fingers. “Would…you…be interested in molding your ass today?”

Deen blanked.

“And I ask this for two reasons,” Chad skipped on without missing a beat. “One, it opens up a larger product line. We could do, say, an ass and cock combo.” Chad smiled encouragingly. “Two, we open up a second market—the fetish for gay men of having a straight man in bed. Would you object to that?”

A bystander in Chad’s office could think of a hundred objections off the top of his head. “I can’t think of a reason why not,” said Deen, grinning and reaching for Chad’s pen. A contract was signed and, a half hour later, a penis cast.

Dave Gardetta’s profile of father and son sex-toy moguls Chad and Ron Braverman is incredible. Would you make a cast of your genitalia for $20,000? (This is a no-brainer, people.)

@myrna.minkoff James Deen has been my (unbeknownst to him) boyfriend for a long time and I love that he’s like “sure, mold my butt!” I love him to death (and will buy his dildo!)

“… said Deen, grinning and reaching for Chad’s pen”

Whoa, “pen” is NOT what my brain read the first time around.

The Bravermans you don’t see on Parenthood.

@Sean Dailey@twitter Hah that was my first thought, too!

I’m hoping the alt text is a reference to either Spaced or John Updike.
