      So in San Francisco he’s made to feel bad for being a straight white dude? (Really). Did I read this right… No one can make a grown adult feel anything. Least of all for being male,straight and white.

      Being STR8 is a “fucking” choice—no one can make you feel bad about being STR8, dude pull your head out of you azz… If you want to be “GAY,” then by all means be “GAY,” just cut the B@llsh*t!

      Try therapy. You may be “straight” but something is definitely going on in that head of yours.

      I can honestly say that the only thing going on in this heard (or any other head) is how to maintain my composure when dealing with people like you. Every time I log on this site- I learn a little more about the “GAY” community. Fortunately or unfortunately, a lot of what I lean comes from people such as you.

      I agree with his statement that you can engage in sexual activity with a member of the same sex without being gay. Being gay is more than just about sex. However, after making this valid point, he runs completely off the rails into self-pity and lunacy.

      He does a lot of work with kink.com, a set of people that do a lot of gay videos and also make work from a queer theory background. So maybe he takes some ribbing from the queers and the gay guys. He’s being self-deprecating — everyone lighten up.

      What’s with the backlash? Why are you all looking into it so seriously? I doubt he feels “guilt.” Perhaps he didn’t express his thoughts concretely, but I don’t think he meant any harm. Lighten up.

      Could this be the classic case of””[He] doth protest too much?” It annoys me to read where all of these guys who play a gay character, in a movie, always make the point they are str8 but they took the part because it was a challenge! I think he is trying to be clever using the ‘story’ about his straightness? so as to distance himself from the gay label and not marginalize himself in the public eye.Maybe a couple years from now he will do what Zach Quinto did (he too protested too much!) and come ‘out!’

      So i read the whole interview on Gawker and now i find myself wondering WHY Queerty even picked up this story? Ok, so he kissed a guy on the movie. Ok, so he’s a str8 porn actor doing a project with an alcoholic (Lohan)….ok. And?

      This guy is a hedonist. Fine. He’s doing some mainstream acting. Fine. He feels str8 guys who like things up their butt dosn’t make them gay. Ok. He feels 2 str8 guys DP’ing a str8 woman isn’t gay. I agree.

      The only thing that’s go me scratching my head are his comments about how the people in San Fran make him feel bad about being str8. Um, which people? Please tell me Mr. Deen that you are talking about the “assumption” that because you do str8 porn, that gay men openly wish you’d do gay porn – that THAT makes you feel “bad?”

      I still don’t think this is a Queerty-worthy article.

      Uhhhm, I’m sorry, but I’ve seen A LOT of his videos and there is no way this guy can say he doesn’t engage in gay sex. He’s a regular bottom. You only have to look at his patulous hole to see that he’s a regular. No joke. He’s putting something up there on a regular basis.

      Personally I like him (and I’ve never seen any of his porn stuff) He comes across a lot different if you SEE an interview with him, the sly grins and shrugs, the energy and humor. And of course he’s right about the distinction between attraction and action–I’d assumed that question was definitively answered with the invention of prisons and English boarding schools.

      He’s obviously trying to merge into mainstream acting. I look forward to his next Gawker article about how he loses sleep because of global warming.

      @DuMaurier: I agree about him. Bummer there are so many spiteful, negative beyotches posting on here. JD has a fascinating life story, and I don’t care where he sticks it (or wishes he could LOL), he’s an okay stud muffin in my book. PS: Offer I posted in Comment #21 still stands, Mr. D.

      James Deen is correct about the porn industry being conservative. In most movies that contain both men and women, male-male interactions are strictly prohibited but female-female interactions are encouraged. There’s a bisexual double standard.

      A lot of female performers are very homophobic towards male-male sexuality.

      Dear Mr. Deen:

      You can always move to Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, etc., and you’ll feel very, very comfortable being a “straight white dude.” You might have to get a bit of old time Christian religion going, but you’ll feel very, very comfortable.

      BTW, are you any relation to that charming Hausfrau Paula Dean? She seems really comfortable with “straight white dudes” too! She’s in Georgia in case you’re not sure where to find her.

      In straight porn, men sometimes engage in penis-penis contact during group scenes but this is a form of male-male bonding and camaraderie. The rules of straight porn are very strict and conservative. Only women are allowed to be sexual with each other. Under no circumstances are men allowed to be sexual with each other in the way women are.

      I don’t know who this kid is but it seems he is bisexual if he’s bottoming for guys. A lot of men try to say they are straight, but are bottoming for other men. He may not be gay, but he isn’t straight either.

      Of course straight porn is “strict and conservative” with very little interaction between the male actors. it is STRAIGHT porn aimed at STRAIGHT men. STRAIGHT men are not looking for interaction between the guys. They are focused on the WOMEN and their interaction. It is not a double standard. It is called creating a product for your core customer. If you want the men interacting with each other, buy bi or gay porn.

      When I was a teenager and tried to do the necking etc. with a girl, my appendage drooped even more. When I was around an attractive guy, my appendage snapped to attention. I came out when I was 19 and in the Navy. When I was 20 I sorted through all of the information I had learned which required some deep thinking. I tossed out everything I was taught about being a heterosexual and kept all of the other good values including know who you are and be that person. Once I decided to be who I am, a gay guy, I was able to get on with my life.

      Most straight people I have talked to never had to go through this process. Some gay guys got married for whatever reason and even had children. They divorced later because they finally realized they were gay.

      Good luck!

      I thought his statement is a rather professional one, if you ask me. Deen gave an honest answer and I don’t begrudge him. Having read this article, I have more respect for him now than I did before. Good for him.

      Hmm. I think this is a simple guilt by association thing. He feels bad because he doesn’t mind gay people, but his line of work is extremely homophobic. Moreover,he apparently visited a predominantly LBGT populated community which seems to affirm, in his mind, that there this nothing wrong with us gays. I’m assuming he feels bad because, as a straight guy, he’s somehow tainted by the wrong-doings of his peers.

      That’s not true, I think. The association just because he’s straight thing, I mean.

      I’m pretty sure that’s what he meant to say. But apparently some of you couldn’t figure that out.

      I think people need to calm down. Everyone feels guilty about something. Many gay people feel guilty for being gay and I know many straight people who feel guilty for being straight. They feel guilty about it, not because they are straight but because sometimes it is hard to understand the rise in LGBT rights, they have to hear homophobic things sometimes and they feel guilty mostly because they know we struggle for many of our rights.

      I’m surprised sometimes with how some and other times many LGBT community members approach problems. Yes, we have been around for a very very long time but change can’t happen in the blink of an eye. We hope but we all know the reality is different.

      From many straight men I have talked to about homophobia and in my opinion, probably one of the biggest problems, is lack of understanding. Most people are afraid of new things and change. It’s is hard to understand other people’s lives sometimes. They stick to what they know and base everything from that perspective. Is that wrong? No. We know what we know and we can’t be ashamed of that. But in saying this, we have to stop being so angry, bitter and so pushy. Yes, let’s push for a better cause, I am all for it but push for understanding. Who are we really to judge others when all human beings are flawed? We all hurt, we all feel pain, we all suffer something and we all struggle.

      There are many wrong things in the world and of course that must stop and we must make clear what is offensive and not. But considering we live in North America, probably one of the freest places in the world, we’re lucky. Majority of the world is intolerant of so much and have to keep on fighting and keep going. We are not weak people, we are not less worthy or less deserving. We can be as angry and criticize as much as we want but anger is negative and also is criticism in a judgmental fashion. Lets strive for patience, persistence, understanding and love. If we are just as harsh as everyone else, are we truly any better? Is fighting insult with insult really going to achieve anything?
