Conner Habib was disinvited from giving a talk at a community college in upstate New York this week, on account of the fact that he’s been known to have sex on-screen. Conner’s a special case, of course — but he’s hardly alone. After the jump, six porn stars who’ve made their brains as big a draw as their bodies.

Vote for your favorite public porn intellectual?

Gus Mattox
He sings, he dances, he composes original soundtracks (Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan), he builds cabins in the woods. And when he’s not doing that, he’s an acclaimed essayist (Laid Bare) and HuffPo guest blogger.

Conner Habib
He writes and speaks about sexuality across the country. As the video sexpert for Logo, he counsels men with body dysmorphia, and helps aid the coming out process. He’s written for Salon, the Advocate and The Rumpus. He is REALLY intof anthroposophy, a philosophical system which postulates that spiritual life can be understood through use of the scientific method (I think).

Michael Lucas
The gay porn mogul and long-time Advocate columnist has elevated courting controversy to an erotic art. He’s an outspoken supporter of Israel, has toyed with becoming a gay Republican and even operated a fashion blog for a short period. His videos often start with sparring debates with his scene partners or new stars on subject ranging from New York culture to gay oppression. He’s spoken at Yale, Stanford, NYU and Oxford. He remade Fellini’s La Dolce Vita into a porno.

Colby Keller
He makes art with his penis. He may or may not be a member of the communist party. He allows hair to grow on his balls. I love him.

Jean Franko
Okay, so maybe he’s not an intellectual PER SE, but he has an amazing ass, and his name sounds an awful lot like JAMES FRANCO, who would fit here quite nicely.

Logan Stevens
He designs costumes, dabbles in performance art and plays the violin. He has a degree in anthropology. He likes to use words like marginalized and smokes cigarettes (probably Export As — very intellectual).

Bonus: Which two auditioned for I Want Your Love? Bonus bonus: am I wrong not to include I Want Your Love’s Jesse Metzger in this?

      Exactly. Since when does writing ragingly bigoted, islamophobic entries in a blog make you an intellectual?.


  2. Hector March 22nd, 2013 at 12:08 PM

    Well, Legend, prove to us you’re more of an intellectual than any of these men, will you?


    • Fitz March 23rd, 2013 at 10:28 PM

      Oh, Hector, prove that your daddy is bigger than mine!


  3. DOUG March 22nd, 2013 at 2:07 PM

    Michael Lucas is a total tool- the articles he writes for the Advocate are semi literate at best!


    • ilovedisco March 23rd, 2013 at 7:34 AM

      Can you explain why do you think that Michael is a tool (please)
      Thank you!

        Way to many hangups.


      • JeffIn760 March 23rd, 2013 at 2:39 PM

        He is a Republican, a virulent Islamaphobe, anti-Palestinian… shall we go on?


        • Kevin April 1st, 2013 at 5:25 PM

          Don’t forget a huge douchebag.


  4. James March 22nd, 2013 at 2:24 PM

    Wow guys – chill out a bit. People come here to get hard, or did you forget. The words on this blog are just foreplay.


  5. jeansb74 March 22nd, 2013 at 5:39 PM

  6. David March 22nd, 2013 at 7:19 PM

    Uh, I don’t think making art with your penis or writing for HuffPost makes you an intellectual.


  7. JeffIn760 March 22nd, 2013 at 9:58 PM

    Michael Lucas? Really? He is a total douchebag.


  8. Luke March 23rd, 2013 at 5:38 AM

    So tired of you guys telling us about intellectual porn stars just because they have a blog.
    WHo cares


  9. John N. March 23rd, 2013 at 8:27 AM

    Why does everyone have to be such a douchebag when posting on these types of blogs? Regardless of the men being featured, the movie, the subject, whatever, the cattiness just never ceases. It really makes our kind look bad.


  10. fab1 March 23rd, 2013 at 10:20 AM

    Mary, I think you forgot Johnny Rapid from the list……


  11. Richard March 23rd, 2013 at 12:21 PM

    I agree with John N. but on the other hand, being a blogger for HuffPo is the very definition of a pseudo-intellectual.


  12. Gareth March 24th, 2013 at 2:48 PM

    Awwwwww and there was I thinking Spencer Reed was going too appear on your list! darn…..


    • franklin March 24th, 2013 at 5:05 PM

      Ha ha ha … personally, I wish most of these guys would stick to fucking and sucking instead of cramming their big “intellect” down our collective throats – especially Mr. Know-it-all Habib.


  13. Sweetbread March 24th, 2013 at 5:42 PM

    Uhm, None of the Above.


  14. Kyle March 25th, 2013 at 5:36 AM

    If “Jean Franko” is an intellectual then I’m fucking Albert Einstein.
