Last week, SFGN reported on David Forest and his “Meet the Stars” and “Knights and Squires” connection services. Through his websites, Forest promises to connect anyone (willing to pay a fee) with any gay porn star or escort that they want.

He never guarantees that the selected star will ever met his clients though, because Forest doesn’t actually represent them.

For example, in the April 2 SFGN piece “Cashing In on Gay Porn Fantasies,” porn star Rod Daily said he’s never known or met Forest, though he’s prominently featured on Forest’s site. Forest responded to the article by faxing and emailing a letter to the SFGN offices claiming an “invasion of privacy,” and asked SFGN to remove the article. SFGN denied that request.

The veteran agent has made some changes to his website and what he is offering after SFGN inquired about the validity of his services.

Initially, Forest’s rates were $395 per connection. Big spenders could drop $1,000 a year for an unlimited amount of connections on Knights and Squires. Now, one meeting costs $150, and the one-year fee went down to $600. Meet the Stars has a new spring special running: A client can have unlimited connections for one year for $395. Still, clients willing to dish out the money are not guaranteed the star or escort in California will ever agree to meet with them.

Forest was also offering a “first of its kind” meet-and-greet with what he promised were the hottest guys Southern California has to offer. That offer has since been dropped from his website after SFGN asked the resort that was advertised if they knew what Forest was advertising.

Cera Lockhart, marketing outreach coordinator for the Terranea Resort, said the resort was never contacted by Forest or anyone claiming to be with his company.

“We just saw your article and apologize for our delay,” Lockhart wrote in an email to SFGN after the first article was published online. “We have contacted David Forest and he has removed all Terranea content from his website and will not be hosting any sort of event at the property.”

Forest then started to advertise this same gathering at the Parker Resort in Palm Springs. Director of Public Relations for the hotel Marisa Zafran first thought it was a joke when SFGN called, and refused to go on the record with a statement. Forest has since removed the Parker ad as well.

SFGN emailed Zafran and asked if Forest was asked to remove the Parker from his website. Zafran simply responded, “Yes.”

For his part, Forest told SFGN he was no longer advertising his “conclave,” because of “unfavorable room rates” and said he might be moving it to a friend’s huge desert estate for a “more private conclave.” He also said SFGN should “stop thinking that reporting on something that has massive world-wide appeal,” and went on to call SFGN’s first article “nasty.”

“It’s a very specialized area and I think you’re barking up the wrong tree if you’re trying to find some huge ‘scandal’ with my ‘connection’ business, now in its 32nd year … beginning in summer of 1981 with ‘Brad’s Buddies’,” Forest wrote in an email.

Forest denied any problems with the Parker Resort, too, and accused SFGN of fabricating a scandal.

“Just suffice it to say that The Parker ended up NOT being workable for our budget plans,” Forest wrote.   “No one's money was taken so there's nothing to talk about.   Stop trying to ‘create’ silly stories out of NOTHING.”

Several hours later Forest sent another email trying to further explain the removal of the Parker.

Forest, saying this reporter was “wasting his time” and asked SFGN to “STOP your fucking interrogation about this” because “NO ONE CARES.”

“The travel agent friend that I was dealing with had not officially cleared the rates,” Forest continued. “He just assumed things would be OK. But, it matters not. No one was asked for any money and before it went further we dropped the location.”

Forest still maintains that there is “NO STORY to all of this.”
