Homophobic vice president elect Mike Pence was the subject of a widespread rumour earlier this week on Twitter when an image circulated that appeared to suggest that he was a gay pornstar when he was younger.
However, as revealed in Pink News, the photo was actually of former gay porn star Brad Patton. Pence is also an advocate of conversion therapy, and one wonders why people are not as worried about him as they are of Donald Trump.
Still, let’s hope he saw this circulating on Twitter and it put him off his dinner or something. Small victories.
Even as someone who only reviews gay porn sites occasionally, all of the points they make here are very recognisable indeed, and I think it’s an article that should be read and absorbed by everyone, not just those in porn.
And good on them for writing in particular on ‘gay for pay’ – a subject that I think is worthy of far wider discussion than it currently gets.
A former Fox News and CBS News anchor who was ditched by bosses in 2013 after being told he was “unlikeable” has forged ahead with a new career – in gay porn.
Jim Walker has now become Dallas Steele, in the process becoming one of the most sought after stars in gay porn, as revealed in Pink News.
It’s certainly an interesting change of career – I wonder just how much coverage Fox News will give to his change of career? Probably very little. And that’s for the best, we don’t want Bill O’Reilly getting any ideas, do we? :/
Despite a distinctly downbeat reaction to the movie’s trailer and mixed reviews to the movie on the festival circuit, James Franco is pushing on with a heavy publicity drive for his controversial King Cobra.
I must say that he’s not necessarily courting controversy on the run-up to its release, but he is courting being openly mocked by claiming to be a “little bit gay” and “gay on screen but straight in my private life” in various interviews he has given.
I am sort of starting to see why the guy has such a lengthy trail of detractors and haters who follow him wherever he goes. Nonetheless, it should still be an interesting film, but expect more nonsense like this in the coming weeks.
Interestingly the article doesn’t come to any conclusions as to why this might be, only suggesting that it’s because a great deal of heterosexual men like to hook up with other men. Which, surely, would mean they are not straight!
Of greater interest is the fact that over half the gay men surveyed watch non-gay porn on a regular basis, quite often due to their attraction to the straight men performing in it.
Interesting information and if the porn industry had any sense, it would actually bear it in mind when making future porn and sites.
James Franco’s biopic about the legendary gay porn actor Brent Corrigan has received its first trailer, which you can see above – and it’s fair to say that the response to it has been mixed.
Corrigan had already openly disassociated himself from the movie several months ago, and now the trailer has received a poor response YouTube with almost half of the ratings giving a thumbs down.
Franco seems to be a somewhat polarising figure amongst many people, causing outright hatred with many. I don’t think I’ve been exposed to him or his work enough to understand why this is the case – but this trailer? It’s…. not the best, let’s just say.
The pioneering gay porn site Naked Sword, and its recent new production arm Naked Sword Film Works, has been profiled in an excellent and in-depth article in Vice.
As well as being regarded as ‘the Netflix of gay porn’, the company set up its offshoot arm to concentrate on projects and productions that did not just focus on porn content but also on boundary blurring short films and documentaries.
The reception of such content has been very positive and represents a major step forward for both the porn industry as a whole and the gay porn industry especially.
I’ve seen a couple of movies by these guys and they really impressive on a cinematic level as well as when it comes to porn. They are worth looking out for.
The subject of newly released movie King Cobra, which has received rave reviews after its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, has lambasted the film and claims that it “bastardises” his life.
Brent Corrigan also claimed that the filmmakers were not interested in his take on the story and were only interested in presenting their own version of his life.
I always find this a difficult subject and I think in the case, with the film being made with a largely straight crew and cast, it’s especially so. I wouldn’t ever expect a Hollywood film like this to tell much of the truth and would always go into such a film only expecting a piece of entertainment.
Even so, I can understand Corrigan’s frustration, perhaps more so in the light of James Franco’s comments that he regards himself as a “gay cock tease”. Idiot.
After his production company produced the documentary Kink, about the porn studio of the same name, he then joined the cast of The Deuce, David Simon’s pending drama about the porn industry in 1970s New York.
Franco is a polarising figure with many people but he is at the centre of a number of respectable projects about porn, and as such he has my respect right off the bat!
