      1) because they are bi, not straight
      2) because it pays more than straight porn

      This really isn’t rocket science, gay porn pays about 3-4 times more than straight porn on average, simples.
      As to why gays love it, well a lot of gay guys have a weird fetishization of straight guys, like it’s the ultimate case of wanting what you can’t have.

      Because men make more money in gay porn than they do in straight porn.

      Nasty anti-gay pro-hetero propaganda from 1950s. No such thing as “gay for pay”. Denial is not just a river in Egypt.

      Let’s start off a bit unintellectual:

      Bullshit.

      There is no such thing as gay for pay. What there is such a thing as is bisexuality and double standards. This is an incredibly easy and obvious conclusion, yet it seems this documentary (and post) ignores this idea. Does this doc ask the question as to why so many female porn stars identify as bisexual and do scenes with other women, and this is wholly accepted? Because it all stems from a common source.

      What all of this goes back to is appealing to the comfort of heterosexual identified (both truthfully and non-truthfully) men. In a society that still routinely objectifies women, two women engaging sexually is something that has mass appeal to heterosexual and bisexual men. This is image as a (sexually) positive thing is then fed into the culture, particularly the porn culture, while the opposite – two men, is denied, because it does not stimulate the heterosexual identified male mind.

      Why do we not see lesbians who are straight for pay? Because, for the most part, it would deny privilege. And that’s what gay for pay is. Appealing to and preserving privilege. By having a well working system that says “you’re not gay or bi, you’re doing it for the money”, the men who participate can safely still identify as straight, regardless of if actions indicate otherwise.

      Please note I’m not saying these men are totally gay – as a bisexual man myself, I have no doubt many of them do have girlfriends and love women. But this fact is not proof of their straightness – instead, it is proof of bisexual erasure, both by the gay and bisexual (identified) men who buy into these sites, and by the bisexual men who participate.

      These men are unwilling to identify as bisexual because they conflate bisexuality with meaning they must also date and routinely fuck and seek out sex with other men as well as women – which is a mistake. There’s huge variance. Many of these men may be at an 70% to 30% straight/gay ratio or higher (to put things in simpler terms). But that’s still bisexuality.

      Further, they are unwilling to identify as bisexual because the culture – that same girl on girl porn culture – has told them that that is the ideal, but the other is nonexistent, thus it is not a viable identity. There have in fact been a number of instances of gay for pay stars initially identifying as bi to some degree, but then switching to straight as their profile rose (Cliff Jensen, Matt Hughes), and others who have somewhat gone back on being “straight” in the most vague of terms (Barrett Long, Zeb Atlas), with lines like “I’m just me.” (note that there are a few who’ve been openly bisexual; Samuel O’Toole, Titof – but it’s rare, it’s either gay or straight, unsurprisingly.)

      It’s an incredibly vicious cycle, and one that only serves to oppress gay, bisexual, and otherwise queer identified men, as well as women of all sexualities. And it only serves to promote and sustain heterosexual superiority and privilege, in addition to aiding mindless consumer capitalism. The gay for pay porn system is something that needs to be completely re-examined and eventually abolished, but I’m afraid things won’t change so long as the root systems of oppression continue to thrive.

      Until then, I’ll continue to enjoy the occasional video of a “Straight” guy with a big dick fucking or jerking, because this culture’s gotten to me too.

      In closing: Fuck this noise.

      Of course there’s gay for pay. People have always done things for money they wouldn’t otherwise do. Do people think most female prostitutes would sleep with the gross men they do if they weren’t paid?

      Real gay for pay porn (i.e., not gay guys pretending to be straight) is awful. They’re obviously not into it. Who wants to watch a flaccid bottom who can’t wait for it to be over?

      The documentary should be about bisexuals who work in the porn industry. Not straight guys.

      Sure they have girlfriends… bi dudes are attracted to women, so honestly if you could go that way it’s just easier living your life and being out in the open with a partner of the opposite gender.

      But they are still bi, hence they have other needs as well. You get to have your girlfriend, you get to screw dudes on the side… they’re practically having their cake and eating it too. (Plus as others have mentioned gay porn pays exponentially more for men than straight porn does).

      All of this should be a no-brainer.

      @enlightenone: They are on the straighter side of the spectrum because they feel more attracted to the female form than to the male form. That is according to them. Sexuality is a continuum, like Prof. Kinsey proposed a long time ago. People may be MORE attracted to one side than to the other.

      Sexuality is never as cut and dried as most people would like to believe and money is a very powerful motivator for people to do things that they ordinarily would never do.Sex for pay is relatively easy and fast. There are plenty of people making straight porn who are gay or bi,and lots of those women in straight porn have no problem doing girl on girl scenes.Gay men fantasize about all men and ogling a straight man only makes it more challenging and therefore more tantalizing

      I knew a lesbian who turned tricks with men (just as I’ve known straight boys who turned tricks with men as well). Granted, that was as a runaway living on the streets rather than in the porn industry but I do know people have sex for money even when it’s against their sexuality (just as many find other means to get by than turning tricks) so it doesn’t seem that hard to imagine, especially if many doing porn have a history of turning tricks before.

      And it’s conceivable to me that a lesbian could be comfortable with another lesbian having sex with guys as she wouldn’t feel threatened by that as she would if with other women (though lesbian porn made by men for men is so messed up that the only real fear should be that it inspires her to adopt celibacy).

      Plenty of gays and lesbians have gotten into unhappy relationships to please family, society, and/or God and have children from such so some aren’t even doing it for the money.

      I read an interesting article ref G4P, which basically suggested that many ‘straight’ men in gay porn, that whilst they saw themselves as primarily straight in their personal lives, gay porn enabled them to explore same sex interests in a way that allowed them to keep their sexuality intact. Given that most studies suggest that bi-sexuality is far more prevalent then commonly recognised, I would suggest that most G4P performers are to a greater or lesser extent bi-sexual, then the issue is with a culture and society that stipulates a binary construction of sexuality.
      We need to recognise that Bi-sexuality is commonplace, and that bi shaming is one reason why many people feel unable to open themselves to their desires.

      Have to chuckle with some of the thoughts. If a man can stick his dick into another man he must be gay. Gay men would never stick their dick into a woman. Shows a very narrow perception of sexuality and human nature. Reminds me of when I came out after divorce 5 years ago, the majority of gay acquaintances decided I could not be gay having three sons. There are so many other factors involved than just libido. Society pressure, peer pressure, family expectations, plus just being young and horny can make an erection to stick into anything, yes? Personally, being gay is not determined by where my dick goes, my sexuality is evidenced by whom I genuinely want to touch, to connect with, and for me that has always been a man. Gay for pay, having talked with a number of performers as Phoenix Pride, I understand and see it for what it is. Men getting paid to entertain and have an orgasm, that’s it, all the rest is fantasy for the rest of us.

      I loath genuine gay for pay because I prefer porn where both men are totally into it and are having a great time. The fake moans and flacid penises are a turn off. I do believe that SOME gay for pay stars are really gay or bi tho. Mason Wyler initially pretended to be straight and that boy is very much a gay man, he’s not even bi but completely gay. And men like Chris Rockway, Reese Rideout and Paddy O’Brian REALLY do a good job of acting like they are massively into it.

      I respect the ones like Samuel and retired star Tommy D who openly identify as what they are. Bisexual.

      Both men being gay does not in any way mean that the two performers are both into it and having a great time.
      Porn is performance. Two gay men can bave bad sex with each other just as much as any other two people if they aren’t compatible or attracted to each other and not all gay men are attracted to each other.

      Porn is work, it’s a job, they are performing on a set with cameramen and directors and makeup people and lights and stopping and starting and repositioning. It’s artificial. It’s not real.

      Any two men who are GOOD performers can give the appearance of having the time of their life while they are engaged in a sexual situation for the camera.

      The job of a porn actor isn’t just to go into a room and have some good sex while you watch.

      The job of a porn actor is to create a fantasy where no matter what he things or feels you BELIEVE he is having good sex. Whether the performers are gay or straight they are acting. That is what they are paid to do.

      Just because actual sex is happening in a porn scene doesn’t mean it isn’t as much of a performance as any sex with two actors on it.

      And the degree to which the viewers are engaged and taken in with the fantasy and believe what they are viewing in the moment is the degree to which the director and performers have created good porn.

      If you are watching a porn scene and you feel like the performers are not into it or they are uncomfortable then you are watching BAD porn with BAD peformers who are not doing their job whether they are gay or straight.

      There is some kind of bizarre discourse in the gay community lately that “No straight man would ever put a dick in his mouth or get fucked with a dick ever, ever, no way for no amount of money”

      To me that just reeks of some kind of believe that sex with a man is dirty or wrong or bad so much so that no straight man who didn’t like it (and was therefore closeted, not straight) would ever do it even for a ton of money.

      I think that point of view is not born out in the real wold and is linked to some deep rooted self-hatred or feelings of inadequacy in our community.

      Human beings will do nearly ANYTHING for money. Like, literally anything if they need money badly enough.

      It’s interesting that folks can believe that a man would kill another man for money but definitely NOT have sex with one.

      I’m a gay man and it is hard for me to believe that any str8 guy would do the ‘low’ with another guy, even for pay! I ‘ve been around for quite a few years and have many str8 friends and all they have on their minds as far as sex is concerned is ‘pussy’ tits and ass’! I have to laugh when the writer assumes that just because these so-called str8 guys have girlfriends, ergo they are str8! (Where the hell has he been all his life, in a bubble?) To enlighten him if he were to go into any gay bar he would probably find at least half of the denizens to have had some sexual relations with females (SO’s, married, divorced, etc) and not least, experimented in having sex with them! I like the response of one hunk (actor) who was accused of being gay: “I am bi, but in truth, I prefer sex with men, they satisfy me sexually more than a female.”

      As many have pointed out, many open-minded straight men do gay porn simply because it pays more. A lot more. And in the past, straight actors made more money than gay actors in gay porn — especially if they were willing to bottom or swallow. These days, bottoming and swallowing are almost requirements for any actor on Corbin Fisher and Sean Cody, regardless of orientation. My best friend is a very open-minded straight molecular biologist and he nearly worked for Corbin Fisher to pay for grad school. He’s thankful now that it never happened because he’s somewhat recognizable in his field. Another straight acquaintance of mine was approached by a female scout from Sean Cody (or was it Corbin?). Cody often used female scouts to recruit straight models. My then girlfriend also downloaded a form for me but I chickened out. Good thing since I am now an HIV/sexuality researcher with many gay colleagues (and patients) who watch online porn. Not good for the career. And please note that Corbin Fisher may very well have rejected me, which would definitely be the case today. Back then, the studio was aiming for the boy-next-door swimmer’s build. The men are much beefier today.

      As an aside, Corbin Fisher (and probably Sean Cody) not only pays well, but long time and fulltime employees also get health insurance with full benefits. That’s why many ex-models, both gay/bi and straight, now work behind the camera.

      People who claim that there’s no gay-for-pay are simply ignorant of the industry and sexuality in general. All men, regardless of orientation, can feel the same physical sensations of topping or bottoming. But only gay and bisexual men feel the emotional component. In other words, straight men can do gay porn. And it’s silly to equate male sexuality with the more fluid female sexuality as someone did above.

      If you rather not wait for the above documentary, HBO’s Pornocopia had an entire episode on same-sex porn. Interviewees included director, Chi Chi, LaRue who tells why s/he prefers straight actors. We also see some butch Latin actor topping, with his girlfriend critiquing him behind the cameras. Fascinating stuff. I uploaded the show to my YouTube channel, fully expecting it to be flagged nudity. Unfortunately, it was taken down on copyright violation instead.

      Finally, some lesbians actually differentiate between gay/lesbian porn and same-sex porn, preferring to call same-sex porn aimed at straight men, “girl-on-girl” porn. I’ve seen some lesbian porn and it’s definitely different from typical girl-on-girl porn. For one thing, at least one woman is generally butcher, and body hair isn’t such a big issue.

      @Bryguyf69: Homosexuality is the desire/attraction/pleasured by “same-Sex” sexuality AND/OR emotional attraction/fulfillment! This would be consistent with Kinsey and others to date.

      @enlightenone: First, I’m not sure what your point is because your fist sentence makes no logical sense. What for example, does “desire…by ‘same-Sex’ sexuality” mean?

      Second, I’m not sure why you’re even bringing up Kinsey since his methods and categorizations have long been been replaced. For example, he relied solely on self-reporting, which is wholly unreliable, especially at a time when Human Sexuality was generally unspoken. And his landmark study dealt exclusively with physical reaction, with NO emotional component — which any modern researcher would immediately discredit. Finally, his scale is never used anymore in modern research. Not only are the categories simplistic, but researchers generally prefer something multidimensional like the 2-dimension Klein Grid, where amplitude is also reflected,

      When I was doing graduate work in sexuality, one of the things I pointed out that the Kinsey Scale would show that Anti-gay “Reparative” Therapy — especially AVERSION therapy — is successful! But something more sophisticated like the Klein Grid would immediately show why it’s NOT successful. That’s because aversion is quite successful in making one lose gay attraction — BUT IT DOES NOT INCREASE ATTRACTION FOR THE OPPOSITE SEX. So essentially what you end up with is a traumatized individual who had NO libido at all (and often suicidal). That’s hardly a conversion to heterosexuality. Yet the Kinsey Scale has no way to reflect this, and would actually show one moving from a Kinsey 6 (exclusively gay) toward Kinsey 0 (exclusively hetero) — in other words, a successful conversion. The Klein Grid, and other more modern scales, do capture other dimensions, showing that a loss of gay activities or desire does NOT mean an increase toward anything heterosexual.

      In short, the fact that you even mention Kinsey shows that you don’t know research “to date.” The bottom line is that what I wrote is indeed what contemporary research reflects, namely, that homosexuality/bisexuality/heterosexuality NECESSARILY has an emotional component. If the sex is merely physical — whether for money, self-protection or just an orgasm — then it’s not homosexuality. Just as masturbation is neither gay nor straight. Sexologists and agencies like the CDC have labeled those men, “Men Who Have Sex with Men” or “MSM.” Look it up. That’s to differentiate them from true homosexuals, who have an emotional attraction to men.

      @pscheck2: Why? It’s easy money. And with the bad economy, there are often no better alternatives. A good example was high school senior, Robert Marucci, who did gay porn to save his mother’s home from foreclosure. He worked for Sean Cody as “Noel.” And it wasn’t just solo stuff; he bottomed like a pro. He was later suspended, just months from graduation. His mom said that officials told her that it was a result of his porn work. Marucci received wide support from his classmates, in no small part due to his motives for doing gay porn. So yes, if my home was about to be foreclosed and there is no other source of money — and I’m much more attractive — I’d consider gay porn. Others like Dakota Cochrane did gay porn to pay for college. According to published reports, he earned about $90,000.

      @enlightenone: Actually no. In most modern studies on male sexual orientation, it is recognized that uncomfortable nervousness alone can cause an erection. That’s why nervousness was controlled for in Adams et al’s landmark study showing homophobes often have latent homosexual tendencies. As for an orgasm, that can be a purely physiological reaction. My partner has seen more than a few unintentional orgasms/ejaculations while performing rectal exams. One gay patient even warned her before the exam. Since he was gay, he clearly wasn’t sexually aroused by her.

      I won’t begin to argue the points you bring up because it is backed up by awesome research! However, since I am intellectually ‘challenged’ I will rely on my own empirical experiences. To say that str8 guys do gay porn because it pays more, is a weak defense of their so-called str8’ness. I must be living in another world because all the str8 guys I have known would be repulsed by any attempt of another guy (str8) wanting to have sex with him!My contention is that these so-called str8 porn actors have a latent desire to have sex with a man to appease that part of his persona that can be classified as homosexual. Also, it seems that some of the posters are going along with the idea that they have to be str8 because they have gf’s, SO, and are married or are engaged.Ha! I have had and do now, have gay friends who have had str8 relationships at some time in their lives, but at some point, decided they were happiest when they owned up to the fact that they are gay! So, these gay porn , str8 having gfs means nothing!

      @Bryguyf69: I didn’t choose to do a “cut and paste” and I tend to engage in this activity late in the night! First statement was a bit of a typo. Should have read: Homosexuality is the desire/attraction/ “pleasure” with the “same-sex” AND/OR emotional attraction/fulfillment with the same-sex! This would be consistent with Kinsey and OTHERS to date. I only mention Kinsey because many still do, just as Freud gets many props though his work is the result of disturbed subjects and the societal times. Given what we know today, I would put both in a time capsule with the Bible! MSM is an umbrella category like Transgender.

      A male having sex with another male to orgasm is NOT the same as masturbating! There are psychological “hurdles” a heterosexual male process pre, during, and post sexual encounter/engagement.

      My knowledge of sexuality, particularly male sexuality in all its expressions is based on my research during and post-graduate school for my master’s thesis, being a licensed therapist for the past 10 years, and as an adjunct professor teaching master’s-level psychology with an emphasis in Gender and Sexual Orientation Studies.

      Some of my personal experiences that inform my expertise comes from raising a transgender child who is now a well-adjusted, successful adult, as well as presenting workshops and trainings to professional psychological associations and colleges and universities throughout Southern California.

      @pscheck2: Humble is good, but your “empirical” knowledge is on point!

      @Bryguyf69: “Actually no,” to what? Interesting research that certainly has value for those who are posting comments; but I would suggest, if I may, you have gotten away from the subject at hand: gay4pay porn. This is not about nervousness, an involuntary erection during an exam, etc. Most of us can relate!

      @Bryguyf69: Porn “stars” do not say it’s easy money. Perhaps some of your research will bear this out. So you may want to reconsider even if you were better looking. There are other alternatives for monetary gains w/o a “video” mark on your life!

      Cutting to the chase of your post are you saying that a str8 guy can have sex with another guy as long as he does not get any gratification from the act and does not experience an emotional response, either? If so, I musst be , at times,str8 because I have had zilche gratification and certainly, no emotional response with some of my tricks!(obviously, I’m being scarcastic ).

      @Bryguyf69: You know it’s commendable that a young man (virile, I assume)saved his homestead from foreclosure doing the ‘dirty’ in gay porn. To me that’s a stretch beyond comprehension for there are jobs in str8 porn open to him, even if it doesn’t pay as well! Being a resourceful sort, there are other jobs available that he could have secured w/o dipping his toes in gay porn! You can’t convince me that any young hunk who claims to be str8 would expose himself to the pejorative job choice of gay porn without repercussions from his peer group! I think that you and some others are trying to validate his choice of gay porn because of necessity and no other choices were open to him! How about the hundreds of other teens taking on jobs that are main stream and yet are able to support their families? In short BS!!
