Are you gay enough to do gay porn?

By guest blogger Amy

The thing that I love about Twitter is it’s a place where you can express differing opinions in an environment full of love, support, tolerance and zero judgement. Except, of course, I really mean that it’s full of a bunch of bitches who have strong opinions about everything, especially when disagreeing with yours.

Are you gay enough to do gay porn?

The latest argument I’ve seen cropping up on Twitter over and over these days is the issue of gay porn stars who aren’t fully committed to having a dick up their asses 24/7. I suppose it’s similar to the age old outrage over Gay For Pay porn stars, though it’s extended to porn performers who are bisexual, those who choose not to disclose their sexual orientation, for whatever reason, or even performers who experimented with women before becoming card-carrying, “get your boobs out of my face, I ain’t interested.” homosexuals. Basically, anyone who isn’t currently, right at this minute, involved in a sexual act involving two or more penises will probably become a subject of intense scrutiny by the Twitter sexuality police.

I, frankly, just don’t get it. I understand that even simply by writing this post I’m pissing off the people who believe only super gay men should be doing gay porn and anyone else should try straight porn or bisexual porn or flashback porn (for when you used to be interested in women), or maybe just jump off a cliff and die, since that’s how disgusting they are (P.S. this blog welcomes comments from every side of the argument, so please don’t be afraid to disagree with me and explain your point of view below).

Porn is a fantasy

Are you gay enough to do gay porn?

I feel like a monster doing this to you, but just like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, 97% of the time these porn scenes are not real. Angel Rock is not, in fact, a real doctor, who fucked the inexplicably completely naked Sean Duranhe found on his examination table. You expect that the next time you go to the doctor, and you’re going to be a very sad, disappointed patient sitting in your paper gown with your ass hanging out.

While I’ve already destroyed your world, I also have to tell you that the Helix Academy is not actually a real school, where you can go sit in classrooms with stunning guys and study nothing but big dicks and rimming. Porn is a fantasy. We pay for the privilege of seeing uncharacteristically gorgeous people do things to each other that range from beautiful to downright filthy.

When I watch porn, I’m not watching two real people have real sex with one another; I’m watching a performance. Just like the actors on The Walking Dead, who don’t actually have to be real zombies for me to enjoy it, the actors in porn don’t have to be in love with each other for me to enjoy it either.

Just because you like fucking guys, doesn’t mean you can make good porn

Are you gay enough to do gay porn?

It doesn’t take one long to figure out that, much like any business, there are some people who are good at porn and others who just plain stink at it. We can pretend that only gay men can convincingly portray the joy found in the act of fucking another man, but then we’d be really naive and stupid. And don’t tell anyone, but I’m willing to bet that some of our favorite actors in some of our favorite scenes were not actually enjoying it as much as they led us to believe! For shame!

If you’re not a huge idiot, though, you know that good porn performers have more talents than just being interested in men. They’re confident. They’re passionate. They’re skilled actors who know what we like to see and how to give it to us. Yes, it helps if they are sexually attracted to their partner, but if you’re going to tell me that Ty Roderick is not passionate about sex in his scenes because he’s bisexual, you’re a damn fool.

It’s just none of your business

Are you gay enough to do gay porn?

This one’s fairly self-explanatory, but since when did someone’s sexual orientation become your business, even if they are porn performers? At this very moment, a few brave people in Hollywood are slowly working up the nerve to come out of the closet, and we applaud them! We’re all fighting for a world where we don’t rely on labels to define us, and where it doesn’t matter if you’re gay or straight because your success in life, even in your work performance, is not dependent upon your sexuality.

Why is porn acting the exception? I’m always excited to see pictures of Boomer Banks with his boyfriend Angel Rock, not because they’re two gay men, but because they’re in love and happy! But if Boomer Banks or anyone else doesn’t want to disclose their sexual orientation, that’s fine by me because it’s NONE OF MY BUSINESS. Stop bullying people into “coming out” — whether they are gay, straight, bi or trans — and just let them be whoever they are and do whatever they want to do! In the same regard, stop criticizing people for being open about their sexuality when it doesn’t meet the porn star standard you have conjured up in your head. In other words, get a life!

Don’t get me wrong, as far as my personal tastes go, I don’t really get off on uncomfortable straight guy porn where both parties seem super uninterested in the proceedings going on around them. I don’t even really like those porn performers who, because of their sexuality, refuse to kiss or participate in anal sex in scenes, since that feels insincere and generally means the two performers have basically zero chemistry.

Still, I think if a person is a good “performer” (and the fact that this is a performance is clearly stated in their job description), then I don’t care if he goes home at the end of the day to my 64 year old Aunt Judy, who wears elastic waist pants and still insists on perming her hair. It’s a far cry from sex with Colby Keller, but who am I to judge?

    This article was funny. You should really try watching guys that are pintó each other with no doubt. Like ameture shit and then ccompare it to this gay crap. Lol or maybe watch a little straight porn and be amazed at the animalistic way straight menos fuck their female counterparts with fire. Hell just watch jake cruise straight guy for the gay eyes to do a side by side comparism and maybe then you might understand the frustration of watch 2 men who are not 100%. No matter how good the “performace” is it Will always be just that… a performace. And i’m mad you compared porn to regular block búster móvies lol

    I prefer to knolw that the guys I am watching having gay sex are actually gay because it lends to the fact that they hopefully are enjoying it. But it is not something I dwell on unless I learn that the gay for pay guy has made some comments that are not very flattering about gay men/gay sex, which some have then I am no longer going to buy or view any of the videos they are in. What I think is also none of any porn viewers business is the HIV status of the actors. When your watching porn you're not sleeping with them so knowing their HIV status is not necessary yet on blogs about gay porn people are constantly guessing whether this guy or that guy is positive.

    @Gayporn123 Man….I think you should get laid. #justsaying

  4. So my advise all of you who love the str8 guys is keep chasing them ,and see where it will get you .No where. That comment also applies to the Bi guys who seem to only really like women .

    • @Peters25A says:

      My problem with what you're saying here is that you're making SO many generalizations. Not every gay man is obsessed with straight men and if a few are, I don't see how it should matter to you. Not every man who is seen with women is straight — they may be bi or bicurious or consider themselves gay.

      If you get off on watching porn between only gay porn stars, great. It just seems to be such an aggressive agenda of yours, and that's where I have an issue. I'm married to a man. I only formally "dated" men. I'm not straight. Do you feel more qualified than me to determine my sexuality, especially when sexuality is so fluid and something that's not black or white for many of us?

      • I was giving an example. And i did not say all i said some. And what i meant by the bi guys that seem to only like women The ones who only date women . mostly follow women porn stars ,but are not called G4P just because they attach the bi label

        Did you even read the article. He IS talking about men who watch gay porn and expect them to be gay. He did NOT state that every gay man is obsessed with straight men.

        Learn basic reading comprehension before responding. You do succeed in making yourself looking extremely ignorant.

  5. Why Why are Gay men so obsessed with Men who would rather date and fuck a women than be with a man . No matter how many Dicks you put in their ass and mouth it will never change that fact .

  6. And it is our business , When you see gay porn stars who Flirting with Female porn stars on twitter it seems a little disrespectful .

  7. This Is really funny . The fact that this is gay porn full of gay sex; therefor , sexuality dose matter on some front . As far as the people you mention as examples ;dating only women makes you basically straight even if you Identify as Bi .
