What Are Today’s College Students Learning About? How to Succeed In the Gay Porn Industry

When terrible people say they don’t want gay marriage legalized because then anal sex will find its way into the classroom, they’re usually referring to elementary or high schools. But anal sex made its way into one classroom this week, when a handful of gay porn stars descended upon the University of Southern California to talk about their biz.

Tuition dollars at work people!

Among the boldface names: Randy Blue (the proprietor of RandyBlue.com) and Reese Rideout, the gay-for-play star built like a house and who overshadows the careers of actual gay porn stars, and Nicco Sky and Wolf Hudson. Who are all, like, Yeah, this is a pretty good gig! Daily Trojan:

Hudson, who identifies as straight and has been acting in gay porn for about three years, said despite what viewers might assume, the performance itself is “totally non-sexual … It’s always very mechanical.” As an actor who has worked in both gay and straight porn, Rideout noted that, while his personal relationships are straight, he prefers working in gay porn because the directors and producers are more respectful of the men. “It’s actually a more comfortable setting. You’re treated more like an actor and less like a prop,” he said.

All the actors agreed that the transition from straight to gay porn acting is not as strange as it seems. They were also adamant in clarifying that, while many actors on that side of the industry are straight, nothing is forced upon them. Blue, who owns his own gay porn production company, said it is up to the actors to decide whether or not to be in his films.

“If it’s not your thing, it doesn’t make good porn,” he said. “There are a lot of desperate people out there who will do literally anything for quick money. That’s not what we do here … Maybe one out of 100 guys backs out after we hire them. Most people want to do what they’re doing.”

Kyser, who works predominately with a style called reality porn also noted that “actors usually come with a list of dos and don’ts.”

Not that their riders are as long as, say, Mariah Carey’s, but you’ll often find kissing, receiving, and rimming are on the don’t list. Well, at least in the beginning of their careers.
