Adding Black Performers to White Washed Gay Porn Site: Great Business Idea

Crunching the traffic (but not revenue) numbers for the very, very white amateur gay porn site SeanCody.com, Aymar Jean Christian finds that throwing in some darker hotties is good for business. Lots of speculation here, from SeanCody.com’s reason for casting a wider net to website visitor figures, but it’s a neat conversation about how diversifying your product line, when your product line is naked men, can mean more cash.

    That article you quote is pure speculation and ignores other major facts. Ummm, did they look at the models that were also released at the same time? Sean Cody had some very, very hot models released at the same time.

    It would be like if I speculated that the, ummm, well, torrent sites that I glance at (just glance) were used as a tool to judge how popular something is. I notice that Sean Cody and Corbin Fishers more ethnic pics are always downloaded a lot less by people who utilize such sites.

    There are some SERIOUSLY hot bruthas out there. Get them on those sites and do it quick!

    @Mike: “I notice that Sean Cody and Corbin Fishers more ethnic pics are always downloaded a lot less by people who utilize such sites.”

    Somehow, that isn’t shocking news.

  • terrwill

    @fredo777: Maybe that’s because they look and act like you : ugly and an idiot.

    I find many of these guys to be HOT! It is nice to see men of color who are normal guys (albeit HOT) rather than the thugs and knuckle draggers shown on other sites. There are hot men in all ethnicities. Nice to see SC diversifying.

    Now get me a Hot Latino Frat Guy or an Egyptian, Turkish, Romanian or Kurdish Frat Guy. Is there a hung Pakistani or Indian guy out there looking for some camera time? Don’t get me wrong, I love white guys. But it is healthy to keep lots of color in our lives.

    @terrwill: To the scumbag who lifted my screen name: WHAT A PATHETIC LOSER YOU ARE, HOW SHALLOW MUST YOU LIFE BE THAT YOU NEED TO “GET BACK” AT ME FOR SOME IMAGINED SLIGHT BY LIFTING MY NAME AND POSTING UNDER MY NAME??? SHOWS HOW TRULY SICK AND DEMENTED YOU TRULY ARE, THAT IS HOW YOU GET YOUR JOLLIES, SITTING YOUR FAT ASS BEHIND A FILTHY KEYBOARD AND POSTING UNDER SOMEONE ELSES NAME YOU ARE A VILE, DISGUSTING, SCUMBAG

    And maybe you are not too familiar with how these internets work. Your IP address is viewable to Queerty for any post under any name on any thread. I am hoping that Queerts does the right thing and makes your IP address banned permanetly from the site…….

    Finally. White guys can get really borning, if it’s the same thing all the time. Need to mix it up. Just a few days ago I saw this little cute white twink getting fucked silly by a big, hot black guy. Now that’s prime jerk material right there.

  • Mike

    Traffic is down for most sites and that is due to the recession.

    Look, hot is hot. And quite frankly most of these websites have a formula that works for them. I’m all for the introduction of ethnic models whenever possible, but they gotta be hot.

    But, if they change their formula out of desperation then they risk losing a more loyal membership. I mean, should they suddenly start doing bondage or bareback just to get a few more members? No, because they would lose their core audience.

    Plus, with the increase in internet speed and the explosion of share sites, and the drying up of excess funds by the consumer, is it any shock traffic is down?

  • ousslander

    I like it when they mix up the ethnicities. I’m with Tangelo on the Turk, Indian and Romanina line up.

    How come when everyone talks about diversifying these sites, it’s only the white dominateed sites that need too?

    Citebeur, is pretty hot.

    WOW — a posting where I actually agree with your opinion!

    Variety is an amazing spice for fun sex. I’ve always been an equal opportunity slut and that has provided me with opportunity after opportunity of fun sex with black guys, Asians, Hispanics, American Indians — and a few super fun times with some of all ethnic groups. I’m not a typical white guy — quarter each Dutch, Hindu, Welsh and Hungarian — an olio myself enjoying an olio sex life.

    Per the article, the linked article disses itself that it is based on assumptions and not actual data. The porn industry is in major shake-up mode due in part by the Sean Cody’s of the industry now being shaken-up just as they shook-up Treasure Islands of the industry just as they shook-up the Falcon Video world.

    +++++++++++

    “Hot” is in the eye of the beholder. More beholders should bring in more business; perhaps for Sean Cody it is just that simple.

  • fredo777

    @terrwill: Oh, I know it’s a fake terrwill. It’s the same person who pretended to be “innane” (or whatever that username was) who posted on the Chad Noel article.

  • Lady Ga-Gasp

    What is more racist? Boy-next-door sites that feature clean cut, hot models without an emphasis on racial stereotypes? Or “thug” sites that offer only racial stereotypes?

    What’s more hypocritical? Berating the boy-next-door sites for a lack of diversity or ignoring all the thug sites that play on racial stereotypes?

  • terrwill

    @terrwill: IP addresses can easily be hidden or faked, thanks to the wonders of modern technology. So good luck with that! Oh, btw, you are the fake one.

  • Chitown Kev

    When SeanCody first started, they did use black and Latino models. They got away from it and that they’re coming back is great news.

    As long as the black/Latino guys they aren’t “thugs” for the time being; there’s plenty of that type of porn out there.

  • terrwill

    @fredo777: It was not a fake terrwill. And you are the most gullible person on this site :)

  • terrwill

    @fredo777: There are a few possiblilties who really have zero lives that they actually take the time to register someone elses name and post under a false name trying to stir up shit……..Am hoping Queerty freezes out the scumbags IP address……….

  • terrwill

    @fredo777: Btw, you’re still ugly and an idiot!

  • terrwill

    @terrwill: Stop talking to yourself!

  • fredo777

    @Lady Ga-Gasp: Two different topics. If asked directly about the “thug stereotype” sites, we’d weigh in on them. Personally, I dislike them.

  • terrwill

    @fredo777: Then don’t log onto them, idiot!

  • terrwill

    @terrwill: Not going to play your asshole game any longer, you are simply a pathetic asshole with absolutley no life. Think how pathetic your are, you actually get joy out of lifting a screen name on an anoymous site, to try and harrass someone you have never met, has never harmed you in any way. Yet in your sick twisted demented little mind, you need to “seek revenge” and are jealous of me for some reason…….Get some help, you desparetly need it…….

  • terrwill

    @terrwill: Now, now, fake terrwill, calm yourself.

  • Jack

    @terrwill: Lol, this is fun! Can you guys wrestle in jello or something?

  • delurker again

    @Lady Ga-Gasp: Isn’t the boy-next-door clean cut “all-American” (yech, i hate that term as it implies something ugly and un-American) a stereotype in itself?

  • DEREK WASHINGTON

    Hot is hot money is money.

    And I’m inclined to vote for Oil wrestling between the two angry Fags! I don’t have a cam, please post pics.

    I’m getting the popcorn!

  • Hilarious

    Is it weird to anyone else that everyone who isn’t white is always referred to as “ethnic”? What the hell is that about?

    We’re all human beings with different skin colors. Why the separate verbiage over something so minute?

  • Dave

    LOL. If you don’t hear it from the lion’s mouth…take all online blogs and ideas of why companies do things as opinions and assumptions. SeanCody is actually doing quite well.

  • CONVERSATION CHAMBER

    It’s good to see the more mainstream companies diversifying, but the double standards are obvious. “Thug porn” is a subgenre…no different from “frat porn” or the “redneck porn” Gemini Men does. It plays up to an audience who likes *that* type of guy.

  • james_cambridge

    Terrwill: I didn’t know two people can log on with the same name….is that possible here? If it is, Queerty needs to fix it. Other sites don’t allow it…and I do also think you should jello wrestle the other guy for the name :)

    As for this particular topic, who cares? I’m mixed race, like my Black & Puerto Rican porn as well as some interracial porn and god knows there’s a million of them out there…who gives a fuck about Sean Cody? His guys are so vanilla (including the Black ones) I find them about as arousing as John McCain. Bleech!!!

    And even if you like the guys on there, why are any of you paying for porn? I mean, it is 2010…it’s all free boys. Free :) Even the Sean Cody type stuff…

  • alan brickman

    people are hijacking this site to talk about themselves..so sad….black porn guys are very hawt…
