A Not-So-Brief History of the Gay Porn Mugshot

History of the Gay Porn Mugshot

I’ve been obsessed with the gay porn star mugshot since 2004 when the gruesome details of porn star Tim Barnett’s serial rape case started to emerge. I have since been collecting and posting them chronologically in this blog entry, however gay porn stars are being arrested so frequently over the last couple of years, I’ve had a hard time keeping up. From beating an elderly couple, to smashing a woman with a toilet, to stealing credit cards from a dead man, these anything-but-sexy crimes read like a blotter of the world’s creepiest criminals (who just happen to have performed in gay porn at some point in their lives).

Gay porn’s “bad boy” really lives up to his name. The mugshot above was from an October, 2012 arrest for alleged battery, but this was in fact his 12th arrest — previous crimes include reckless driving, false imprisonment, parole violations and many more. You can see a stunning compilation of all 12 mugshots over at TheSword.

Gay porn star Addison aka Jason Andrews mugshot

Addison: May 2010

British-born gay-for-pay Jason Andrews, who performed on Sean Cody as Addison was arrested with female porn star Sunny Dae (legal name: Amanda Logue) in May, 2010 in connection to the murder of a Florida tattoo parlor owner Dennis ‘Scooter’ Abrahamsen. According to AVN:

The killing was notable for its brutality and the callousness with which the killers planned and executed the crime, including exchanging lurid text messages in the hours leading up to the attack. Logue had been hired by Abrahamson to have sex with him on camera during the party.

After bludgeoning Abrahamsen to death with a sledgehammer, they stole $6,000, his laptop, video camera, and Home Depot credit card, which the couple used and ultimately resulted in their arrest. In order to avoid the death penalty, Andrews plead guilty and was sentenced to life in prison without parole in January, 2012.

Mugshot of gay porn star Tory Mason

Sebastian Young Mugshot

Sebastian Young: June 2008

The first of a dozen mugshots of Sebastian Young to surface, this specific arrest was related to a parole violation.


Keyon (above) and Teyon (below): Feb 2008
Twins Keyontyli and Teleon Goffney were arrested in Philadelphia for trying to steal the cash out of a beauty salon’s ATM and were promptly connected with at least 35 other robberies. It took porn fans all of six days to figure out they were the gay porn twins Keyon and Teyon who did a handful of scenes and cam shows, most notably a threeway on Blackmen.net with Marc Williams, where Marc bottomed for the first time on camera.

Mugshot of Edmond Vardanyan aka gay porn star Nickolay Petrov

Nickolay Petrov: Jan 2008
Nickolay Petrov (aka Edmon Vardanyan) was arrested in Florida and charged beating and stalking a couple in their 60s. Petrov was actually hired to kill them but couldn’t quite pull it off. The (former?) Jet Set Exclusive faces up to 20 years in prison.

Tommy Saxx: June 2007

Things started to go downhill for b-list star Tommy Saxx, it seems, when he started to do bareback: It was around then he seemed to have sunk past the point of no return. Working as a hospital tech, Tommy was caught going on a shopping spree with credit cards he stole from to a man who died in the emergency room.


Mark Dalton (II): May 2007
Arrested for allegedly hitting his girlfriend (once again) Mark Dalton was released the next day. Two weeks later they realized he was in violation of his parole, so he got sent back to jail where’s he’ll stay at least until his next parole hearing in 2009. I much prefer this mugshot to his previous one — better hair, no wonky-eye and he seems to be making a real connection with the camera.


harlow cuadra joe_kerekes
Harlow Cuadra (above) & Joseph Kerekes (below): May 2007
Business partners, prostitutes and (alleged) partners in crime, the two currently are on trial for killing Cobra Video owner Brian Kocis and could face the death penalty if found guilty. Drawn by the sensational aspects of the case, “Rolling Stone” and “Out Magazine” both reported on murder.

Marcus Allen: November, 2006
When Timothy Boham — better known to gay porn fans as Marcus Allen — was arrested crossing the border into Mexico on suspicion of murdering his boss, JP Kelso, all sorts of bizarre details surrounding his life emerged, painting a portrait of a very twisted, conflicted man. Invoking a history of manic depression, in May, 2007 Boham pled insanity, claiming that Kelso’s request for “a cuddle” set off a manic episode. He still awaits trial.

Cody Cash: March, 2005
The rough-hewn Beantown dreamboat checked out of Wet Palms and into LA County Jail for cocaine possession. Since his much-hyped release from prison some 20 months later in September 2007, he’s since only filmed one scene (topping Braxton Bond on GetYourFixxx) and no one’s heard from him since.


Mark Dalton (I): October 2004
What started as an anonymous tip from a disgruntled client quickly turned into sad fact: the massively muscled not-quite-gay star ended up spending 14 months in prison for domestic abuse, where he would clearly NOT learn his lesson.


Tim Barnett: July 2004
Tim Barnett (aka Bradford Thomas Wagner), prolific 90s porn gay star who starred in Falcon’s rape-themed classic The Abduction 2: The Conflict was arrested as mounting DNA evidence suggested he was a serial rapist (of women) in the Aspen, CO area. The story took an even more sordid turn a year later when he hung himself in his jail cell awaiting trial.

    What the hell? Nickolay Petrov is a hired assasin? He has serious problems or something. How did he even get in porn he isn’t even hot. I guess all you need is a sixpack to get into gay porn these days.


  2. chriso February 27th, 2008 at 4:16 PM

    Now I’m trying to figure out who will be the next gay porn criminal. Maybe all those weird black leotard-y outfits Francois Sagat keeps posing in on his blog are an indication of his future as a cat burglar?

    Oh, also, I won’t name names but isn’t it technically a crime when a porn performer/director doesn’t show up for work for several weeks and his boyfriend disappears with the company truck for just as long?


  3. Baeowulf February 27th, 2008 at 5:17 PM

    Man…I always wondered what happened to Tommy Saxx.

    He used to make the best fuck faces and damn was he fucking hot. Then he just dropped off the face of the planet :(

    Shame to see him sink like that.


  4. God February 27th, 2008 at 9:00 PM

    You Americans are so dum, you don’t even know it.


  5. DRoseDARs February 29th, 2008 at 3:32 AM

    “Dumb” is spelled with a “b” you dumbfuck.


  6. BzFly2 March 27th, 2008 at 6:39 PM

    I remember reading about Tim Barnett on GayPornBlog. I was shocked because he was one of my favorite porn stars. His performance with Devon Foster in Limited Entry and with Steve Marks ( I can’t remember the title of the video) were two of the hottest sex scenes I remember! Ashame he was such a horrible man.


  7. Mark Smith April 14th, 2008 at 5:07 AM



    • RuggerSF August 10th, 2013 at 7:52 PM

      Says the tweaked out freak reading gaypornblog.com. LOL


    • Anonymous August 11th, 2013 at 1:59 AM

      oh goody; an expert…, and how is your sex life, dearie – if any?


    • peter August 11th, 2013 at 10:00 AM

      Mr. Smith, first this ain’t a ‘gay’ phenomenon, it’s a porn one, and the stuff today is no more extreme than the stuff I’ve seen in so-called ‘classic’ porn from the 70s-80s. When Robert Mapplethorpe photographed it, they called it ‘art’.


  8. n June 27th, 2008 at 4:37 PM

    wow…..hormonal much?


  9. Austrev July 9th, 2008 at 2:29 AM

    Dear Mr.. Smith If you are looki’n for love on GAY PORN VIDEO-DVD you are sadly misguided perhaps a visit to your local preacher is in order… he might be able to provide you with all the “LOVE” you so dearrly need.. GROW A BRAIN…. PORN PORN PORN —get it yet —-RACKOFF! BORE!


    • Aramis August 10th, 2013 at 7:42 PM

      He, Mr. Smith is entitled to have his opinion and I think he’s a reasonable view about gay life and porn. He is right. All gay related things are soacked with sex as if sex was the only value that matters for a gay guy.


      • BlokeToys August 15th, 2013 at 9:51 AM

        You ignore gay literature, gay cinema, gay characters on TV… you think this is all "we" are? Then you are conveniently choosing to ignore all the great aspects of gay culture in a spiteful attempt to draw others into your self loathing.The gay porn business is no different to the straight porn business. There's the same content out there in both. There are a lot of other cultural aspects out there too, that have no connection to gay sex.Go and read some romance novels, watch Brokeback Mountain, read up on gay history… if you think gay culture revolves around the porn we watch you have a very warped view of the world.


        • Kasnar July 29th, 2014 at 4:22 PM

          Very well said…..


  10. Jon April 10th, 2009 at 1:31 AM

    Why are some of these guys hotter in their mugshots than in their porn pics? What went so wrong in porn production in the past few years???


    • BlogZilla August 16th, 2013 at 1:23 PM

      LOL! I was thinking the same thing. Especially Mark Dalton- woof.. If that’s not a sexy mug shot, I don’t know what is. We are just perverts and prefer the scruffy rough look, perhaps.


  11. Steve B July 24th, 2009 at 10:03 AM

    Austrev…Sorry to disagree with you. Sex is supposed to be about making love. All this weirdness that has been popularized by the porn industry such as leather fetishes, fisting, pissing, etc. diminishes the true pleasure of hot sex. And dont tell me that I need to grow a brain or see a preacher. lol.


    • peter August 11th, 2013 at 9:55 AM

      Steve B, I actually think Iago had it right when he said ‘love’ was ‘a fire in the blood and permission of the will’. When I was 19 I was at a party and being a [brat]. Some older, bigger guy literally pushed me into a room. What happened next was just this side of rape and goddamn was it hot! Total hate-fuck — no love whatsoever.

      I’ve also had beautiful, loving encounters with guys whose names I didn’t know. In fact once I asked a guy what his name was when he was already balls-deep in me. He replied “does it really matter?” I laughed because he was right!

      When I hook up, I usually use fictitious names depending on what I happen to be up for. “Tommy” is a cum-pig who likes to get wet. “Dylan” is verse and like kissy-cuddly romantic encounters. “Peter” just loves gettin’ his butt pounded, etc. Get the idea? It makes hooking up a real adventure!


      • peter August 11th, 2013 at 9:56 AM

        does this site edit t w i n k?


        • Mike August 11th, 2013 at 1:20 PM

          We try not to make a habit of it, due to Google regs.


      • Kasnar July 29th, 2014 at 4:30 PM

        Oddly, even that little verbal exchange during sex “What’s your name?….Does it really matter?”, made it seem a lot more personal,intimate and and consequently sexier. What the imagination can do!!


  12. dj December 24th, 2009 at 7:13 AM

    besides the rampant racism in white vs. thug porn and hardcore porn to extremes of unsafe violent sex …not to mention the discrimination that goes on within the gay community. I watched my very best gay friend whom was overweight drink and drug himself in meth and alcohol because he didnt live up to the porn “type” look. I always get bitched at when I dont go drink the cool aid and rally for gay politics or marriage just to support the lawyers, salvitating for all those legal scandles they will love to rank in on when the divorces start to fly faster then a Tiger golfball. Imagine how the gossip blogs oogle over the what, 10 or maybe 20 women Tiger played with… Hell thats all in a months work for a gay. Before the “gays” get clout they must first fix their own family before making demands of others.
    I’m a man and in this era of internet I find it harder to find good erotica. It all is just getting faster, harder, grosser, extremer, to fill the desensentized minds of all us lil piggies. I’m clicking on thru more then ever and find myself (when alone)I end up just hauling my old porn out..sans the gapes, the creme pies, the dps…. good old fashion fuck suck kiss …. eh maybe its just me. a lil ol fashioned. i can’t imagine what will be the norm post 2020


    • BlogZilla August 16th, 2013 at 1:31 PM

      I’m glad someone raised this issue. USA gay Porn is so unemotional, and most of it turns me off even though I can get porn free these days, I just pass most of it by. Why? It’s insensitive, violent, gross, unemotional, degrading.

      All of these fetishes such as pissing (what’s next vomit and shitting?), fisting, bondage, s and m, only serve to dehumanize and desensitize the fact that a human being is behind all this, with nerve endings

      Most USA gay porn made today is like watching two steroided robots trying to get it on. And they expect people to pay to see that?

      These themes have become popular because of the increasing dopamine challenged public – the same reason why music stars can no longer just stand there and sing and play their instruments, they have to have pyrotechnics, fires, vocoding, cirque de soleil type dancers, etc…


    • Johannes Bols May 3rd, 2015 at 11:35 AM

      “Rampant raciscm”? Against which race, darling? And if you’re trying to fly the “Black Discrimination” Flag might I remind you that the Emancipation Proclamation was signed in 1865? Can you say “Affirmative Action”? And you’ve pulled every tired, passive-aggressive chestnut out of the fire, haven’t you?
      Nobody cares about your whining and complaining. No one! We have REAL issues, not heated over namby pamby baseless vague crocodile tear-esque rant that, c’mon, even YOU don’t believe. …or ARE you that poorly endowed in the upper story? Sheesh… some people’s kids…


  13. Tony July 20th, 2010 at 12:01 AM

    You guys forgot about Addison from Sean Cody. Where is his mugshot.


    • Shamama August 11th, 2013 at 2:17 PM

      Thanks, Tony — I added him.


  14. DomPaul May 16th, 2011 at 12:18 AM

    FUK YA!!! LOL awesome! ;D


  15. pastol July 16th, 2013 at 7:57 AM

    I think, but I have no proof, just my own idea, that a lot of this is due to the huge number of “amateurs” swarming into the business today. There is a place for any guy who want to show his dick. There is no respect for the trade. No sense of pride in their work for a lot of them. Sure, most of them are great and behave, but when the flood gates are opened to anyone you get the bones with the fish. Porn is the number one business on the World Wide Web and is no where near the saturation point yet. Personally I love it. So a few of them screw up, oh well. I love the “guy next door” aspect of a lot of the porn. You can bet there are a ton of more that are just the “little guys” that have not achieved name recognition yet. Personally, I wouldn’t mind being in prison with a few of them. HA!


    • rdw July 29th, 2013 at 10:49 AM

      But you have to admit, porn attracts a lot of shady characters. Some of these dudes are just fucked up to begin with.


  16. boyzzboy August 9th, 2013 at 2:01 PM

    Yes kids, this is a great career to get into . . . spawns all kinds of positive role models and people doing good things for the community. Feels like a great idea at the time when you’re being lusted after . . . not so sure of the long term effects (these we usually don’t hear about, right?) But who are we to judge? The truth will defend itself. lol


  17. Amy Racecar August 9th, 2013 at 2:33 PM

    Whither Ryan Idol? Oh, here: http://gaypornlive.wpengine.com/gay-porn-news-ryan-idol-convicted-of-attempted-murder.html


    • Shamama August 9th, 2013 at 3:57 PM

      Oops — thanks, I added him. I’m sure I’ve left out others, too …


  18. Casey August 10th, 2013 at 9:46 AM

    Has anyone ever found Tim Lowe or Jon King’s mugshots?


  19. peter August 10th, 2013 at 1:43 PM

    Both the Rosso twins have been arrested, “Luca” (Jared Fetterolf) last November for attacking “Liam” (Jacob Fetterolf) and Liam/Jacob this past May for sexual assault. He’ll be in for a while. Bet he looks cute in orange. He’ll be the belle of the ball!

    They’d have been better off going to Prague and filming a twincest four-way with the Peters twins.


    • Ben September 1st, 2013 at 9:34 AM

      omg just looked him up and you are right!


  20. emma August 10th, 2013 at 5:07 PM

    John Waters said it best “Everyone looks better under arrest.”


  21. kay August 12th, 2013 at 8:05 AM

    straights are obessed with sex as well , many ads i see on tv involve a lot of women in revealing clothes.
    but gays are less subtle about it


  22. Chris August 13th, 2013 at 5:01 PM

    You forgot AJ Monroe. He’s been arrested like 8 times. I also think twinky Micah Andrews was arrested for killing a homeless man.


  23. stranded September 8th, 2013 at 9:30 AM

    Interesting fact, Jason Andrews aka Sean Cody’s Addison. Isn’t British at all. His story was on some Lifetime show about women who commit murder. His whole british thing was an act, he confessed to cops he’s been living this lie for years. Even the girlfriend didn’t know.


  24. Robert September 12th, 2013 at 12:08 AM

    Cliff Jensen aka Adam Ranski has been arrested again on the same charge as posted above. There is not a new mugshot posted yet but he has been in custody of LA County Jail since last week. According to the LA Sheriff Inmate search his next court date is the 16th at 8:30 am. Who knows if he will be released or not but I will keep an eye out for a new mugshot for your collection Ha


  25. ken October 13th, 2013 at 2:48 AM

    Surprised you missed David Cody.

    Many films as Tim Lowe
