Gay for Pay: A Fans View; Nothing More, Nothing Less

Hello everyone,

As you might have noticed the title is a subject that will interest everyone. As a gay man, I’m also a consumer of gay porn. Sometimes some of the actors are not gay, nor bi, they are straight; yes you read correctly, I said straight.

There’s lots of contradictions about those guys amongst the industry and fans. Myself, I will not discriminate against any of the performers, of course I’m also disappointed when I see two performers in a scene and only one is getting serviced, it insults me. Don’t take me wrong, the scenes are still hot; I just prefer seeing both performers pleasuring each other.

I understand that those beautiful men that are there on camera have made sacrifices and are basically living a double life from time to time. It’s also a money game, it’s not always their first choice of performance or they’ve been scouted by scouts from online sites and major studios.

I’m lucky to be friends on here with many of those beautiful male performers; I have good conversations with them and if you’re thinking that the conversations are about sex, take your mind out of the gutter, we have simple conversations about life and their dreams and aspirations for the future. I love and respect all of them; each and every one of you should all do the same. Instead of judging them for what they do, talk to them get to know them, also read up on their stories and appreciate the work that they do for all of us.

To all of the magnificent porn stars, Gay, Bi or straight, thank you for keeping us entertained and dreaming. Keep up the good work and don’t let anyone step on your toes. You’re all amazing in your own way.

Thanks for reading.

A fan

Alphonse Cyr
