jasperJust weeks after the deaths of gay adult film performers Dimitri Kane, 20, and Zac Stevens, 25, comes news that Jasper Robinson has died at age 21. Robinson had performed in dozens of scenes for gay porn studios such as Boy Crush, CockyBoys, Helix Studios and NextDoorStudios during the past three years. Last October he announced he was retiring from performing.

    Why are all these porn stars dying all of the sudden. Seems like one a week

  • JerseyMike

    His friend was right. He did touch a lot of people. RIP

  • Sweetie Pie

    Another one bites the dust…

  • Manny Yoko

    Gone too soon. RIP ??

  • Cory M. Warren

    Drug abuse, transmitted diseases, domestic abuse… All things common in the porn industry.

  • Captain proton

    suicide, drugs, heart conditions. myriad reasons.

  • AxelDC

    Twenty-one is ridiculously young to die. Gay porn stars seem to burn bright and fast. A 21 year old is barely out of adolescence.

  • Ben Stimpson

    Porn attracts a mix crowd of people. Not all are gay, many are straight… some are raising money to go through college some are trying to feed addiction problems. Some die because of other things in their lives like mental health concerns. Look at how many porn stars recently have been arrested for robbery or murder or what have you. The article says it may have been related to a heart condition. Either way, my thoughts go out to his family and friends.

    Jesus take the wheel. Geezz…I’m always thinking that next slice of cake or cheese burger is what’s gonna do me in. If it was drugs, I have to say a food addiction isn’t much different.

    Addiction is addiction. God bless his family.

    21 = early middle age… re gay porn star life expectancy

  • Desert Boy

    It seems like each week there is a report of a gay porn star who died young.

  • BigG

    He had a heart condition apparently, and when you don’t eat, that makes it worse.

  • moldisdelicious

    @JerseyMike:

    Just got that. Lol. Rip.

  • CWM85

    Gay porn equal early death… yikes…

  • KerryB

    Kind of playing fast and loose with the term “star”, aren’t we? He was ugly and anorexic.

  • J.r. Graff

    Of all of these porn star deaths how many of them died because they were on drugs and if that’s the case, the gay media just so happens to conveniently not mention that. Just dust it under the rug like the gay community has done with HIV…….

  • Doughosier

    Sad to die so young. He was cute. It’s usually drugs that are the problem.

  • Chris

    I’m going to take a guess that he had a heart condition in the same way that the singer, Andy Gibb who died at the age of 30, did. Cocaine (ab)use is known to cause heart problems.

  • Joey Okowitz

    This is going to make for an awkward fap.

  • John Vick

    A great loss.

  • B.J. DeLorenzo

    Why is there a dead gay porn star on a weekly basis?

  • alphacentauri

    Very sad. Rest in peace.

  • Brian

    Pornography is the filmed version of prostitution. It is sordid.

    You’d be better avoiding it. If you are desperate for money, there are millions of other things you can do with your life.

    Bad choices in life lead to bad consequences. It’s sad what happened to this poor young man but it is not entirely unexpected for performers in the profession.

  • Kal Andrews

    Life in the fast lane?

  • Derrode Louis Rowe

    And straight pornstars are dropping left, right, & just as much.

  • Dan Knapper

    should prolly lay off drugs. :/

  • Realitycheck

    @J.r. Graff: R.I.P.

  • Prinny

    If this continues we’ll lose all porn stars.Something must be in the air if they’re kicking the bucket so often.

  • Evji108

    @Brian: Thanks for the moralizing and shaming of porn performers, we will all be ashamed and mark it with 30 seconds of silence next time we jack off to porn. We feel sure you are Above all of That as you have made Superior life choices. Congratulations.

  • Phillip Bernal

    and yet pages like this one, glorify this life as if it’s the ultimate lifestyle. They are nothing more than costly hookers who share their fate just in designer jeans…

  • scotshot

    @J.r. Graff: Actually there’s no truth in your statement, the reality is the opposite. Thanks for the Troll’s opinion.

  • scotshot

    @Brian: It’s rather sordid when a closet case comes to this site and makes denigrating statements all the while masturbating. smh

  • Giancarlo85

    Brian isn’t a closet case. He’s heterosexual. He’s here to harass gay people with his stupid remarks and hates women. He hates women because they always reject him. And gay men wouldn’t want to get with a phony like him.

    Sympathies to Mr. Robinson’s family and friends at his death and in their grief at their loss of a guy close to them. Questions and speculations about his death and drugs seem
    to be the concern by some who have commented here.

    Death at a young age from heart could be caused by imbalance in cardiac muscle of potassium or calcium which could be caused by use of other drugs; or, one could be a person with a family and/or genetic history of high cholesterol (some of the thinnest people can have high cholesterol) and a blockage could have occurred. Besides the pleasure and entertainment Mr. Robinson gave that many enjoyed, from his death people could be looking at their own heart health and having a conversation with their physician and/or cardiologist.

    I give thanks for Mr. Robinson, and I hold those for whom I know and care much closer.

  • Stephen Blanchard

    Why are you people so concerned about how he died, so sad what we have become, my thoughts and prayers goes out to all the family, so young, may you rest in peace

  • seaguy

    Funny how everyone becomes a know it all blaming drugs, HIV, or other reasons for a porn stars death when they don’t know shit.

  • BlogShag

    @Chris: , Really, your silly assumption is that it must of been drugs?? The pathetic standard of the USA diet can cause heart problems in a flash. It’s the number one killer. That being said, he looks anorexic and pale like a meth or heroin addict
