Special Announcement

I want to get this week started off with a special announcement of a project that has been in the works for the last month.  On August 1 Spades Magazine will launch a sister blog - Jack of Spades Magazine.





Since we launched Spades Magazine nearly 2 months ago, our Twitter page has acquired over 1,700 followers and the blog has reached over 30,000 views.  The reviews for Spades Magazine have been amazing.  But there is a fast growing niche in the lifestyle that has been asking us to produce something for them too and that is how Jack of Spades Magazine was born.

A Jack of Spades is defined by Urban Dictionary as "bi or gay white men only date black men. It's the bi/ gay white male's version of the queen of spades. They both represent how white women and white men exclusively date only black men."  We have also included CD/TV/TG in our definition as well.

We encourage you to read both blogs and expect the same level content as you are used to receiving on Spades Magazine.  Also if you are on Twitter follow the Jack of Spades Magazine Twitter page here.  Jack of Spades Magazine will be available for viewing on August 1 and will have new content posted every Wednesday and Friday.  Please spread the word about this new chapter in our development.

What Spades Magazine Is All About

Dear Readers,


Nearly 2 months ago I launched Spades Magazine with a desire to present the world a blog that showcases the IR swinging world that I have been involved in for the last 8 years and the awesome people who participate in it.  While there are many facets to the lifestyle I chose to focus my efforts and attention on the black man/white woman aspect of the lifestyle.

In the nearly 2 months since its launch, Spades Magazine has already exceeded my wildest expectations for it by this point.  Its Twitter page has over 1,700 followers and the blog itself has had over 30,000 views.  It has loyal readers from around the globe who regularly email me positive feedback and so far almost no one has refused our request to be featured in the magazine or interviewed for it . . . . almost no one.

About a month ago I experienced the first of three events that served as the catalyst for this post.  A couple of the black male Twitter followers that we have contacted me about featuring a particular Queen of Spades with a extensive Twitter following and her own website.  I won't be mentioning names in this post because it isn't necessary.  This post isn't meant to put anyone down, just clarify the positions of Spades Magazine on some issues.  Meanwhile I contacted this Queen of Spades hoping to set up a feature post or an interview with her at a later date.  She responded by asking if Spades Magazine would be featuring certain popular Queens of Spades on our blog. She went to say that she viewed these particular women as fake Queens of Spades because they were married to white men and, in her view, using black men simply for sex.  Believing that honesty is always the best policy I responded to her that Spades Magazine had contacted the women in question and had every intention of featuring them on our blog.  She responded by saying that she could have nothing to do with the blog if we insisted on featuring "fake QOS".

Now I have no problem with someone disagreeing with Spades Magazine and our content and her comments and sentiments would have been totally acceptable . . . . had she simply left it at that.  Over the next several days, I received several messages from black men on Twitter and through email telling me that I should change the content and scope of Spades Magazine to conform with this particular Queen of Spades definition of what a Queen of Spades should be.  The messages where mostly belligerent, hateful and rude and quite honestly I was bewildered as to what was provoking such sentiments and how a private conversation between myself and her had become public knowledge.  About two days later I received a message from a mutual fan of both Spades Magazine and this particular Queen of Spades.  He informed me that she has was ranting on her Twitter feed about people and blogs who "have no integrity" and were promoting "fake QOS". While Spades Magazine was never explicitly mentioned in any of her tweets I am told that Spades Magazine was identified as the offending blog in several DMs and the emails and Twitter messages I subsequently received would seem to indicate that is the case.  Some of the tweets that I saw take issue with the use of the word "Mandingo" and seem to imply that a "real Black man" would not publish or read a blog like Spades Magazine.  She also stated that she is a "true QOS" because she is exclusive to Black men only.

So now that you the reader have some background on this first issue, allow me a moment to clarify.  The definition for a Queen of Spades that Spades Magazine subscribes to is simply this: A Queen of Spades is simply any white woman, married or single, who pursues sexual pleasure and gratification from Black men. I don't personally care if she is married to a White man, Black man, Asian man or Latino.  I also don't care if she is exclusively for Black men.  Most people who participate in this lifestyle, myself included, are not in this lifestyle to find love or a serious committed relationship. In most most cases it is simply about sex and sometimes friendship.  I have met women and couples who I never know beyond our trysts and their names and there other women and couples who have become great friends and I know what they do for a living, where they live and take their vacations, and what's going in their family lives.  I don't feel like I am used by them because quite frankly that's all I want from them.

As for the charge of promoting fake QOS, I must plead not guilty.  Every Queen of Spades interviewed or featured on the blog, in the past and in the future, will have met the definition of a Queen of Spades that I articulated above.  I also refuse to discontinue my usage of the word "Mandingo" or "Queen of Spades".  As a black man, I understand the history of those words and the connotations that they have to some people but this a POSITIVE blog that puts POSITIVE meaning to every word we use.  None of the words used on this blog are used to demean or stereotype people and I mean no offense by using them.  But I also reserve my right to use them and anyone who feels otherwise about their usage can simply start their own blog as I have and present the lifestyle in the way that is comfortable to them.

The second issue that I want to address regards a well-known white woman who has had her own website for over 15 years, has a very well established presence and has had considerable success fucking black men on her site and other network sites.  I contacted her to let her know that I was naming her the Celebrity Queen of Spades for the month of July (I have since then selected another person).  Her response was that she refused to be associated with a magazine that used a racist term in its name (Spades).  While I can understand anyone's reticence because of the name of the magazine and the history of that word, I was instantly struck by the hypocrisy of this particular person.  She portrayed herself as a paragon of virtue and proclaimed to me, with no sense of irony, that she is not a racist.  Now while I don't know her personally and I don't think she is personally a racist it should noted she has made the bulk of her career appearing in racist films for major porn networks that depict black men as lecherous, thuggish criminals who are unable to articulate themselves beyond "Yo White bitch, give me dat pussy".  She even participated in filming for a website that used the N word in its domain name.  When presented with the facts of her hypocrisy her response was that she and the male performers were simply doing the films for the money and were disgusted by the dialogue and stereotypes (which they performed with apparent gusto).  Once again I was stunned at the hypocrisy of this woman.  I know for a fact that she and her husband own a very lucrative and successful business plus that the fact that they also own her website which has been one of the most successful and lucrative amateur porn sites on the web since the late 1990s.  She isn't hurting for cash yet somehow she feels no guilt in peddling vicious and nasty racial stereotypes for monetary gain.  She asked me that none of her images or video appear anywhere on this blog and I promised her that all content specifically licensed to her and her site would never appear on this blog.  If someone has a problem with the name of this blog by all means please start your own that exhibits your views but don't put us down as you make money from perpetuating the worst and most vicious stereotypes out there.  We do not engage in stereotypes or racism on this blog.  All portrayals are positive portrayals of the variety of people who make this lifestyle.

Th third and final issue to address is this - if someone uses language that you deem offensive or racist, please don't ask me to publicly or privately call them out for what they put on THEIR Twitter page.  I only have responsibility for the Twitter pages that I created and operate.  It is not my job to police what every one of my Twitter followers say or do nor do I care too.  A word of advice - if you don't like what someone says or does, then do what I do that has saved me a lot of time and unwarranted stress - UNFOLLOW AND/OR BLOCK THEM. 

Once again this post is not meant to degrade anyone or publicly call out anyone.  It is meant to clarify what Spades Magazine is about and clarify some of the issues that have arisen in the last two months.  It also not meant to tell you to stop sending your feedback because I love to hear it. I only ask that you be courteous and respectable when sharing your opinions and I will promise you that I will do the same.

Mandingo Interview for the Month of June

Spades Magazine is pleased to present to you our Mandingo interview for the month of June.  This month's interview is with Mr. Nuttz.  If you watch amateur IR porn on the tube sites then I am sure that you have come across his work and he is one of the best in the biz.  If you aren't familiar with him then read on. Enjoy and please comment.



Q: Thanks for agreeing to an interview, Mr. Nuttz.  Glad to have you in Spades Magazine.  Tell our readers about you. 



 A: My pleasure, glad to be a part of what you are doing as you spread the word about the lifestyle. I live in MOTOWN, yes sir, Detroit city. Not the ideal place for the amateur lifestyle but I make it work. I am in my mid 40's, 5'11', 198lbs. I am divorced but have a significant partner that knows my lifestyle.

Q: We have a few size queens who read Spades Magazine and I am sure they want to know how big are you? 

A: My size is just over 9 1/2 in length & just over 5 in girth. When a lady asks I just say, 'I am average!'



Q: How long have you been in the IR swinging scene? How and why did you get involved?

A:was introduced to the lifestyle during a softball tournament in Cleveland, OH., in the mid 90's. A couple cheered every move I made for a day & invited me back to their hotel room. I had no idea what was going on & the ol' G's had to tell me what was going on.






Q: What is a Queen of Spades to you? Why do you like them?

A: The 'Queen Of Spades' to me means the future... I enjoy them so much, because they are uninhibited. For the most part, the husband is aware or even part of the scenario, so the wife can be free & open. Nothing to hide & no one to hide it from. This also allows for the submissive side to evolve.



Q: What is the sexiest, hottest, nastiest, freakiest thing that a Queen of Spades has done for you or to you?

A: Well, I don't want you to lose your FCC license, so I will give you the B answer. But a husband was celebrating his last alimony payment to his ex wife, so he decided to throw a swinger's party. Seven couples were invited & they all were to invite one black bull to attend. Out of seven, I was the only one to show, so I had to service 7 wives in one night. I would rate that the hottest.




Q: What has been your best IR swinging experience?

A: Best IR swinging encounter was actually a cuckold couple that I was involved with. I had keys to the home for access at any time. The wife actually did some amateur video work & can still be seen on any tube site to date.



Q: What is one fantasy that you haven't fulfilled yet?

A: Unfulfilled fantasy? After 18 yrs. of this, I have done all that I can think of. 

Q: What do you look for in a playmate in the lifestyle? What's a women's most attractive feature to you? 



A: I look for curves... The more the merrier. I am also into submissive females. And there is something special about a redhead.

Q: You make your own IR movies and they are the some of the best on the amateur circuit in my humble opinion. How long have you been doing that and how did you get started?




A: THANK YOU! Especially since my material is sometimes on the 'darker side'. I have been making amateur/homemade videos since 1996. It became official in 2008 when I opened up my own studio. I got started when a girlfriend & I, along with a few couples decided to post a video each on a site to see who would get the most comments. The other couples got cold feet & our video received 100 comments in 24 hours. So I just connected the dots.

Q: Who have you shot with in the biz? How do you find women to shot with?

A: I have filmed with dozens, but I have to recognize the ladies that are in my network. They are the ones that put in all the hard work & labor with me & most of the time only the 'big name' gets recognized. 'Subrina Spurts', 'Eden Blows', 'Adena Paige', 'Christie Wett'. These are the ladies I cherish in the lifestyle. How do I find them? lol, they find me now... A brother has built up enough credit. LMAO


Mr. Nuttz and Christie Wett

Q: Who is your favorite person to shoot with?

A: My favorite to shoot with was 'Bambi Birch' but, unfortunately, she had to leave the lifestyle.

Q: Who haven't you filmed with that you would love to film a scene with?

A: Harmoni Kalifornia. We met a few months ago & was scheduled to shoot together, but due to circumstances we were not able to make it happen. We did take a pic together and it surfaced on twitter. I received about a dozen emails asking me when will the video be available? So in due time I would love to work with her. 


Mr. Nuttz and Harmoni Kalifornia

Q: OK, so I've read your answers and checked out your pics, where can I find your movies?

A: My Website/Clips4Sale Store since October 2008 this has been the place to check out my material. In the near future I will have some new projects available with my network, TEAM VP, so be on the lookout for that as my partner 'G, TheVP_08' is putting things in motion.

Q: You are stuck on a deserted island and you can only bring one QoS with you. Who is it?and Why?



A: I have to give you the politically correct answer here. So that would be my porn wife 'Christie Wett'. She has been with me for the longest & a true friendship has formed. And the marriage is complete with real arguments, so it will be just like being at home.

Q: Thanks for the great interview.  Where can we keep with you at? 

A: I am ol' skool, so I struggle to try to keep up on the social medias, but you can find me on Twitter, or email me at mrnuttz2012@yahoo.com.

I couldn't complete this interview without shouting out to two cats that showed me big love back in the day & have paved the way for so many others. First, I would like to acknowledge 'DFW Knight'. When someone 1st compared me to him I was really blown away. He's the 'Godfather' of the game. The 2nd one is my man up in NYC Big Max, love talking to Max & he shared a lot of knowledge with me. When cats like this share the knowledge with you, it's hard to go wrong.


Mr. Nuttz and Sean Michael
