Belami says: Claude Sorel is Johnny Bloom’s best buddy. He’s named after Julien Sorel, from Stendhal’s The Red and the Black. When Johnny arrived, somewhat afraid of his own shadow and not really sure of his decision to shoot porn, he brought Claude Sorel with him for moral support. Eventually, Claude decided that he wanted to join as well. Both boys now shoot regularly and are currently on exclusive contracts. From what we’ve seen so far from both of these guys, they are doing very well.
