We fondly remember Keith Griffith (on Facebook), a friend of the AEBN family, who passed away on Tuesday at age 53.
Keith cemented his place in gay culture after launching a free website called Cruisingforsex.com in 1995. This website changed gay men’s sex lives and the gay porn industry forever. The site was a portal to help men find each other for hookups anywhere, from bath houses and parks to their own bedrooms. Users of the site and many gay men all over the world came to know Keith as the Cruisemaster. Even mainstream media called on Keith’s unique expertise after the gay sex scandal involving former Idaho Senator Larry Craig broke. Keith’s Cruisingforsex.com influenced countless gay hookup sites and smartphone apps that came after it.
Over time Keith’s website expanded to include a studio, the long-running Cruisingforsex.com, which became one of AEBN’s first gay affiliates. Video on demand viewers loved such titles as twink orgy title Double Dick the Twinks and piggy group fuck Double Dick the Studs (a collaboration between Cruisingforsex.com and AEBN). AEBN also supported the titles Cum Soakers 1 & 2, Gloryhole Initiation of Adam Burr, More Gloryhole Initiation of Adam Burr, and All About the Hole.
AEBN’s Chris Baker holds good memories of his first times working on set with a studio, which were alongside Keith for Double Dick the Twinks and Gloryhole Initiation of Adam Burr. “I had the pleasure to get to know personally,” says Baker. “We first met on the set for Double Dick the Twinks in NYC and I really had a great time with him. He taught me a lot about the inside workings of a porn shoot. I’m going to truly miss him. He was a dear friend and I am glad that I was able to get to know him in the little time that we knew each other.”
We extend our sincere condolences to Keith Griffith’s family, friends, and loved ones.
