COMING AT YOU

Francois Sagat Says Adieu To Porn

François Sagat is a Frenchman of few words. The popular adult film star announced his retirement from porn in a video shot at the Magic Kingdom. Standing in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle, Sagat turns to face the camera and breaks hearts the news with a short and sweet message: “Hello, I’m François Sagat and from this day forward I’ve retired from porn.”

Thirteen little words.

In a note posted on his site Sagat, whose last porn film was 2011’s Incubus 2, says he has many more projects on the way, but doesn’t offer further elaboration.

What do you think is next for the performer?

    His first project should be to get a different hairstyle. I would have enjoyed his films more if I hadn’t been so put off by that weirdly shaven head.

  • BritAus

    You know I don’t think I’ve seen one of his films. A clip in a compilation maybe but that’s it.

  • ted72

    @avesraggiana: I couldn’t agree with you more!

    @BritAus, you’re not missing much. He was never all that attractive and that tattooed “hair” of his is so distracting that you tend to forget you’re watching porn, instead, you spend more time focusing on that silliness and wonder to yourself, “What the heck is that?! Who does this?! Why would one do this?!” At which point, you would’ve lost interest in the porn in itself. Then laugh to yourself that that happened…

  • yaoming

    @avesraggiana: “Hairstyle”? I assumed this guy was bald and that’s why he tattooed “hair” on his head.

  • manmachine

    Sorry but that queen is having a moment. He’s at Disney World wishing he could start a family and had a moment where he decided probably a 1/2 hour beforehand that she’s done. The next day (or week) later he’ll wake up, realize he misses the attention way too much and she’ll be back to her old porn shenanigans!

  • NateB79

    @avesraggiana: I have always wondered what in the hell he was thinking with that head thing too. I’ve only ever seen clips of him also, because that creepy tattooed hat is an instant boner antidote.

  • Rbs

    Wow didn’t take long for all you bottom feeding queens to post bitchy comments did it? LOL
    Super sexy guy, will definitely be missed in porn

  • viveutvivas

    At least he didn’t denounce his whole career and the industry while retiring and finding religion. Pretty dignified in comparison to some other recent retirements.

  • Taliaferro

    I would say his future contains oblivion and a disappearance from public view. The porn industry attracts hundreds of fit, hung young men and their career life is very short – a few years. There will always be more candidates coming on the scene even and the older, less talented ones fade away. The only real success stories are those who make the movies – the studios – Men at Play, Raging Stallion, Chi Chi La Rue and Michael Lucas.

  • twoguysbrooklyn

    I’m LOLing about the comments on his tattooed hair… “distracting”, “boner antidote.” Yeah, I’m sure if you woke up beside him you’d run screaming from the room. Bottom feeding queens? Absolutely.

    As to what happens next, I hope he moves in next door to me.

  • viveutvivas

    @ted and nate, once you guys have made a small fortune based on your looks, then come back and criticize.

  • avesraggiana

    @yaoming:

    You’re right. It had been so long since I’d actually looked closely at him that I’d forgotten that he hadn’t shaved his head, he had actually tattooed his shaved head. He probably, really is bald. Anything would be an improvement, even removing his whole head tattoo, which I understand, is a long and arduous process. A pity really, he’s so handsome otherwise.

  • dvlaries

    The guy I miss is Dean Flynn.

  • DarkZephyr

    When I first saw his face while the main page was loading, I was worried it would be an article saying that he had committed suicide. Thank goodness this is not the case. Though to be honest, I guess I thought he had already retired seeing as he has volumes of “Best Of” DVDs. That seems to usually mean they have retired. Anyway, I have always liked him.

  • NateB79

    @viveutvivas: Look, he didn’t make his money off that head tattoo. I can think it’s odd looking and how it’s not something that I personally find attractive, and my looks shouldn’t enter into the equation. I’m not a person in the public eye. I’m glad you remembered to take your nasty bitch pills this morning.

  • Niall

    Never saw the big deal about him, watched about two of his vids and I barely enjoyed them. Good luck to him in whatever he decides to do next, won’t be missed at all.

  • DarthKitsune

    @avesraggiana:

    That’s a Tattoo he got because he was going prematurely bald. And he’s sexy as fuuuuuuck,

  • viveutvivas

    That’s rich coming from the one who posted a nasty bitch comment regarding Sagat.

  • Beachman

    @twoguysbrooklyn: Brooklyn…you can have him! And his boring films. I have to admit I thought I was the only one who found his self-mutilation ‘tatts’ such a turnoff. Glad to see I am not.

    And bottom feeding queen? I don’t think so…more like power daddy top to you Mrs. Twoqueensbrooklyn.

  • NateB79

    @viveutvivas: I read my comment and I don’t think it was nasty. It was a joke about a tattoo. Why you interpreted that as an attack that you needed to defend a total stranger for is a matter for you and your therapist. I was making a joke. You shouldn’t take everything you read on the internet so seriously.

  • twoguysbrooklyn

    The anonymous queens can’t stop themselves, I guess. Makes me laugh all the more.

  • Fitz

    You jealous bitches are jealous bitches. He is incredibly hot.
    Short, muscular,hung, nasty, intense.
    If he is leaving porn cuz he wants to, then far out.
    I, for one, will always be willing to look at his work.

  • Scribe38

    I have only seen a few movies of him, but I really enjoyed how he bottomed like a man. I like the whole package, the tats, muscles, attitude. He’s MY perfect bottom. Whether he is getting married, or moving on to main stream movies, I really wish him the best.

  • Darrellx

    No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Scott Johansen

    I enjoyed his movies. He was passionate in his scenes, and if I’m paying for porn, I want the stars to look like they are into it and he always seemed to be having fun. If he is giving it up well good luck to him in his future. And if he’s not, well he has plenty of fans.

    His films were HOT though. Intense sensuality

  • Cobalt Blue

    What is next to him?
    The answer is: Work with fashion, fitness or as a hairstyler, a bartender, a DJ…or more porn and prostitution and maybe sell drugs.

  • Polaro

    He is a type – love him or hate him, he is very memorable and good at what he did. I sure hope he finds success in his next career.

  • kennetho9322

    In 2007 he won a “Grabby” for Best Bottom. If that’s the highlight of your career… ya, it’s time to retire.

  • Rbs

    Love him or hate him, 908 people have already posted this to their Facebook accounts… That says to me he’s going to be missed

  • MMDD

    Hands down, he has arguably the best ass EVER of anyone in the porn biz. And I’ve always kinda liked the head tattoo. It makes him unique.

    I’ve never understood why these guys make these “I’m retiring from porn” announcements though. I think it would be much more accurate to make an “I’m getting older and my porn opportunities are drying up and I basically don’t have any other skills so I have no idea what I’m going to do to survive” announcement.

  • Gigi Gee

    Ah. Now I remember why I stopped reading the comments on Queerty. Yawn.

  • BRAINSAGAIN

    So he announced that he is retiring from porn, and will begin his ESCORT BUSINESS very shortly!

    So what!

  • Cam

    Weird for somebody who hasn’t worked in 2 years to announce their retirement.

  • avesraggiana

    @BRAINSAGAIN:

    Just like Tom Chase and Chase Hunter before him. Although I don’t think Chase Hunter has actually retired
    What’ s with then name, “Chase” and porn stars?

  • Kangol

    Such a beautiful little man. I hope he pursues more non-porn art films like Homme au bain. He was incandescent in that.

  • Spike

    @BRAINSAGAIN: More like retiring from pron, definitely not quitting escorting, pays more A LOT MORE.

  • Spike

    @Rbs: And that would be because there is a shortage of super sexy guys interested in doing gay porn? Who knew.

  • Martin

    Who care’s , Lets face it,He will be back in a few years when every other new project fails, Gay porn stars do nothing for equality or gay rights, get a decent job, instead of selling your bottom.

  • dvsBTM

    I had the biggest crush of my life on Sagat. He’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a man. I bid him farewell and hope that he finds whatever he is looking for…
