Kenneth Connin is living proof that dreams really can come true.
The 27-year-old became a quadriplegic nine years ago after suffering a traumatic spinal cord injury during a competitive cheerleading event.
“Just because I’m injured and I have certain limitations, [it] doesn’t mean that I don’t still enjoy pleasure and I don’t still enjoy touch,” he tells Davey Wavey in a new interview.

Hi Friends. I wanted to share a project that I have been apart of and am very proud of. You may have seen my quick IG story yesterday and some may be “shocked”. I have worked with a company called himeros.tv (adult content) to help get a conversation going around sex and disability. Yes, it is a very sexual video but it is also so much more. There is such a stigma around sex and disability that has been prevalent for decades. I found it very empowering to be seen as just a sexual being and not confined to someone else’s thought of my sex life. I hope that it brings other people an open mind, that just because someone isn’t just like you they most likely desire similar things. If this makes you uncomfortable, feel free to not follow me. I’m very proud of the message that is intertwined in the scene. (Don’t worry close friends, I won’t start posting all my “bits”, I still respect everyone’s comfort level ?) • • • ?: @jamesniklaus (Thank you for always taking random Instagram pictures, I really appreciate it) • @officialdaveywavey Thanks again for the opportunity • • • • #Himeros #gay #gayboy #disabled #bodypositive #breakthestigma #spinalcordinjury #portland #portlandoregon #pnw #positive
Connin, who lives in Portland, has long dreamed of doing gay porn. Now, that dream has finally been realized. He just filmed his first x-rated scene with veteran adult film star Pierce Paris for Davey Wavey’s adult film studio Himeros.
“Outside of my wheelchair, I’m just like everybody else,” Connin says.
The 16-minute scene, titled “Facef*ck Me”, premiered on the platform this week. It’s official description reads:
This is a video about two men with a hot, intimate connection. Kenneth enjoys when guys kiss, touch and tease his neck, face and ears. But what he really loves is a deep, hard, aggressive facef*cking. And today, that’s exactly what he’ll get. This video features Kenneth Connin and Pierce Paris. It was created with consultation by Andrew Gurza.
Connin says he couldn’t be happier with how the scene turned out.
“It was totally what I wanted,” he gushes. “What I expected was to feel a little more awkward and a little more out of place but everyone here has done a great job at making sure I feel just like anyone else.”
Asked why he didn’t use a pseudonym like so many other adult film performers, Connin replied: “I’m proud of what I’m doing and who I am and I think everyone else should be too.”
We can’t argue with that!
He adds, “I hope that people understand from watching my scene [that] it’s OK to have sex whether you’re disabled or whether you’re not disabled. I want able-bodied people to know that just because someone has a disability, that doesn’t mean they no longer have a sex life.”
Can’t say is I want to watch it but good for him. More power to you brother.
His life his choice. Good for him.
We don’t want to see you either D-bag.
I hope he fu*ks everyday for the rest of his life. I want him to be happy. But why film it? I don’t find it sexy for other people and for myself, because I will always have the thought, back in my mind, that he has a problem. It is not aesthetically pleasing as a regular video.
It’s not a regular video. It’s a statement piece.
My sympathies go out to this guy what a tragic misfortune. This is basically a fetish video and exploitative he could have gotten the same point across without going the porn route. Not surprised Davey is behind it he’d film his own grandma going at it for clicks!
Give me a break. The guy wants to show that he’s a sexual being. That’s the whole point of his being filmed. You all sound like straights criticizing our community for being “too sexual” and “shoving our sexuality” down their throats. Give this guy his 15 minutes of being a sex symbol. Don’t watch it if you don’t like it, but don’t trash a member of our community because he’s different.
Maybe you shouldn’t read the comments??? Kinda like your telling people not to watch the video??? Just a thought seeetie!
As Iamru said, it is indeed totally exploitative and sensationalist. Davey Wavey is a horrible individual. I am sorry this poor fella decided to do this grotesque act and serve as a puppet to increase the visits to Daviey Wavey’s website. This stuff is HORRIBLE.
So is there such a thing as a, Power Face?
I am staunchly anti porn but after watching his video, I am persuaded that adult films that caters to the disabled and any groups that are socially disadvantaged can have a positive impact on their lives, their self esteem and their sexual well-being. I am more than willing to cut some slack for people who are less fortunate and who have little voice in the gay community.
Wait, you’re anti-porn but have a subscription to Himeros? Do tell…
I have no idea what subscription you are talking about. I just watched his interview video where he talked about why he had decided to perform in the adult film.
Your opinion doesn’t matter. At all.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
Good for him, if he wants to show a disabled guy can still have urges. Feel bad that he probably has no way to be able to come….
I don’t have a problem with it but don’t understand why appearing in porn is needed for validation.
He did it because he wanted to. It’s not about validation.
I say GOOD FOR HIM. Few people get to live out their dreams. Fewer get to live out their fantasies. I don’t get all the negative reactions from bitchy queens.
Your calling people who are giving an opinion other than your bitchy queens, sorry but you sound kind of bitchy to me, maybe you don’t see the irony.
Good on him. He’s making his own choices (Davey Wavey didn’t blackmail or threaten him…sheesh) Plus he’s cute. And yeah, mean people here.
I saw the PG-rated trailer. The kissing is quite hot.
wonder what his porn name would have been, had he chosen one?
Even quadriplegics can be narcissists!
Keep on! I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and am very happy for you. I wish you the best, always.
