Man of the Year

 In 2007 Francois Sagat had what it took to be the hottest man in the world. The Gallic porn sensation had the body – of course – but also, more unexpectedly, the charm, the wit and the sheer charisma to transcend the genre of gay sex flicks, and become an all-round icon. Sure he was hot – but he could also be cool, and funny as hell; the thinking man’s porn star. He “got it”. He was it. And the whole (gay) world wanted more.

By the end of the year he had inspired not only random horny dudes everywhere, but  illustrators, designers, and at least one comic book writer who were eager to explore his charms. He blogged articulately on his website, and appeared on youtube brushing his teeth and singing along to Britney Spears, with a wink to the camera.

 And even better, he worked his fashion connections ( pre-porn, he had worked as a stylist assistant at uber-cool fash mag “V”) by modeling for Bernard Willhelm in a sensational collection of pictures showcasing the hilarious gay-superhero-themed mens’ collection by the avant garde designer (his other curent muse : Bjork).

In one pic he appeared having sex with a Renault (through the tailpipe). And on his blog he posted …”but I’d rather do it with a Ferrari”.

Next year, he takes to the road on his 2008 “Erotico World Tour”. What exactly a porn star does “on tour” is an interesting question. But an even more pertinent one might be “will he stop by Tokyo..?”
