The Playboy Mansion used to have the Mid Summer Night’s Dream Annual Party, full of current-day celebrities and scantily clothed women. Pride would be the gay equivalent and if you weren’t aware, the Black and Latino community has BLATINO Oasis: The end of summer, California men's desert oasis retreat getaway, that takes place September 14-17, 2023 in Palm Springs, CA. This is after all, “America's sexy queer men of color getaway in the legendary Hollywood getaway to the stars.”

Now I haven’t been to BLATINO Oasis and shame on me. I live in LA, 2 hours away from the desert getaway, and being Latino myself, there is no excuse. Being a porn aficionado as well, I grew up watching content from Dawg Pound USA, Bi Latin Men, Papi Thugz, Breed it Raw, Macho Fucker and so many other sites that featured our Black and Latino brethren. Also, I came to find out that many of the muscular hot men I loved from these sites made guest appearances at BLATINO Oasis!

Recently, the website hosted a fan voting site for this year's BLATINO Oasis Erotic Award show and it seems like 1,500 votes were received, myself putting in a vote. This may after all be one of the reasons why these gay porn celebrities make it out there and at this time, the event already has winners selected for Best Adult Content Creator, Best Top, Best Verse, Best Bottom, and Best New Cummer. List and photos below!

Best Adult Content Creator: @RhyheimX
Best Top: @MichaelPrivi
Best Verse: @ElijahZayneXXX
Best Bottom: @PorfiMax
Best New Cummer: @RomeoGotD

Winners are invited to accept their awards on Saturday, September 16, (1 pm-6 pm) at their annual Blatino Erotica Pool Party at the Canyon Club Hotel in Palm Springs. Will this end up with a star filled orgy?

King Noire, the artist and sex educator will also be performing live music! Who knows if I may be able to make it this year, but if you want to make it, online pass sales are available and end at the end of this month, August 31st.

BLATINO Oasis in 2007, as a gay and bisexual men of color retreat, far from urban life, yet filled with all of the amenities a man could need from numerous luxury hotels to clothing-optional resorts. In 2011, the Mayor of Palm Springs presented BLATINO Oasis with a proclamation of recognition! Over the years, BLATINO Oasis has become California's largest gay/bi men of color annual getaway, attracting over a thousand men from around the world.
