I got a bunch of fan mail recently. Fan mail? For me? Whatever. Suddenly I’m Ann Landers and Heidi Fleiss all in one. They want “advice” but what they really want (and may not even realize it) is for me to deliver their favorite pornstar to their doorstep.

I will try my best to answer the burning questions, and hopefully they are not all from “creepy stalkers”.

Dear GayPornBlog:

hi, i just discovered your gaypornblog today (courtesy of Gawker), and i was just wondering if you have any information on adorable, blond porn star Troy Michaels. i don’t watch a lot of porn, actually, but randomly rented one a couple of months ago starring mr. michaels, and immediately was smitten. i’ve now started renting all of his movies I can get my hands
on, but can’t seem to find out anything about him on the internet. i can’t even hardly find any pictures??

i’m not a creepy stalker or anything, but I would be very curious to learn more about him, and whether or not he has an agent. i also happen to be an independent filmmaker in austin, and should i ever have the means, would love to see if troy is interested in ever doing any non-pornographic work.

anyway, that’s all for now. thanks!

Dear Gentle Reader:

Check out the movie “Inside Porn” from Sports and Rec. I also forwarded your letter to Drew Warner at GayPornStudio.com and ask more info and got this reply:

“Troy Michaels is in Sports & Recreation Video’s High Desert and Poolside… available at www.gaypornstudio.com in the online store. Troy’s most extensive photo gallerys anywhere of individual shots and hardcore shots are in the www.gaypornstudio.com� XXX Members area using ManCheck to access… enjoy!”

Thanks Mark… and I’ll see you next week if I am in town still!

xoxo,
Drew

I would suggest signing up for his membership site for more on Troy Michaels.

Dear GayPornBlog.com:
Hey I had written you a while back about getting in touch with Justin Slater.
Since I can’t find an email address for him, I was wondering if you could pass this on.
Thanks!

Hey Justin:
�
What’s up Stud?� I have been a fan of your work since I saw you in one of the Schoolmate videos.� And my favorite scene is the one in Young Directors where you blow yer load all over the bathroom door.� I could watch that over and over.� Very hot.
�
Hey, I was wondering if you would be up for doing me a favor.� That meaty cock of yours is quite a gift.� I have admired you and it on video.� Assuming that I’m probably not going to get you to come over to my house and fuck me with it, I was gonna see if you’d be into making a copy.� I’ve had good luck with those “Make Your Own Dildo” kits and if I got one and sent it to ya, would you be willing to slide your big fat one into the mold and make us a Justin Slater dildo?� It sure would be fun to play with.
�
Might seem like an odd request, but doesn’t hurt to ask. I’m not a fatty or freak or stalker or anything – just a normal slim sometimes horny guy who likes big fat dicks.
�
Let me know stud.
Hope you’re doing well and hope to see you in some more vids sometime soon.

Dear Gentle Reader:

I forwarded your email to Justin Slater twice, and I never heard from him either. Unfortunately, professional ethics (ahem) prevent me from sharing any porn star’s private email addresses with strangers. But if you haven’t heard from him, he may not be interested. Sorry, he probably thinks you are a “fatty”.

Dear GayPornBlog.com:

I WAS SURFING THE NET AND FOUND THIS ARTICLE – IT WAS WRITTEN A FEW YEARS AGO – BUT IM WONDRING IF T HIS IS STILL A PHENOMENOM OF WHITE COLLAR GAY PROFESSIONALS DOING GAY PORN ON WEEKENDS AND FOR FUN, FOR ATTENTION, FOR THEIR 15 MIN OF CELEB (THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN BEFORE THE REALITY TV CRAZE SO MAYBE NOW THEY GO ON SURVIVOR OR SOMETHING) – JUST CURIOUS AS IT HAS BEEN SOMETHING ON MY MIND AND IVE BEEN OFFERED OPPORTUNITIES AND HAVE A PHOTOGRAPHER WANTING TO PHOTOGRAPH ME FOR A MAGAZINE OR HIS WEBSITE AS A START – IM NOT GETTING ANY YOUNGER BUT HAVE ALWAYS WORRIED BOUT THIS COMING BACK TO HAUNT ME OR FOR DOING IT FOR THE WRONG REASON ESP SINCE I SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION AND SOMETIMES TEND TO HAVE LOW SELF ESTEEM EVEN THOUGH EVERYONE TELLS ME I SHOULDNT –

JUST CURIOUS IF THIS IS STILL A MAJOR TREND IN THE INDUSTRY –

Dear Gentle Reader who doesn’t know how to start or end sentences and has a broken Caps Lock on his keyboard:

Models are paid $500 – $1000 per shoot, and only the very best looking models are offered that much money. Amateur shoots only pay $100-200. Even at the top rate, you’d need to shoot at least 50 movies a year to actually make a decent living. Unfortunately, by the 20th movie, the public will be tired of your sorry ass, no matter how cute it is. Your rate will go down to zero and you’ll have to get a real job.

There is a misconception that the gay porn industry is just like the old Hollywood studio system of the 30’s and 40’s with contract players. The real world of gay porn is more similar to migrant farm workers getting paid by piece work. The latest trend is toward outsourcing jobs oversees. Corporate jobs like programming, data entry and telemarketing are being outsourced to India, and gay porn jobs are being outsourced to Eastern Europe and Brazil.

My advice it to go ahead and do a few movies, but go into it with the attitude of it being just for fun. When you’re old and grey you’ll be able to show your grandkids that gramps was quite a hottie in his day.

Dear GayPornBlog.com:

Hello. Do you know of a cross-referenced database of gay porn? That is, one where I could put in a name and get out a filmography, or vis-versa? It’d be better if it included information about the different movies (year, studio, how it rates, etc). Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,

Dear Gentle Reader:

I wish that database existed, it would make my job a lot easier! I have seen a few attempts at building such a site, but it probably got too big to manage and it went away or hasn’t been updated in years.

You may be living under the same misconception I spoke about above that gay porn is like the old Hollywood studio system. Thank god consumers believe the all hype, otherwise gay porn Hollywood would not be the (wet) Dream Factory that it is.

If a good free site like this exists, someone please let me know!

First off, great site. Love reading the gaypornblog… Great job.

Just wondering, with all your porn expertise, if you have any info on
whatever happened to two 1980s porn stars. The first is Todd Baron, who
appeared in one of Falcon’s first videos, titled “Style”. It was his only
film as far as I know. Co-starred with Ron Pearson, Leo Ford and Tim
Kramer. Al Parker directed. Todd is on the boxcover. I remember thinking
he was just the hottest sexiest thing I’d ever seen when I was a teenager.
Got off on him over and over again.

The second “whatever happened to” is Shawn Michaels, who appeared in “Getting It”, a valley boys tale about a party in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley
in the mid-80s. A Bijou/Jocks video directed by Philip St. John, with Jim
Bentley, Rick Donovan, Jon King and Matt Ramsey, among others. I think the
film was remade as “Getting It At The Rave”, though Shawn Michaels was not
in the remake.

Just wondering if you know the scoop. Hope they’re both living high on the
hog with the man of their dreams somewhere.

Again, great site.

Thanks.

EDWARD

Dear Gentle Reader:

Again, I suggest re-reading my earlier analogy about migrant farm workers. (I once wrote to Safeway and asked who picked a tomato I ate in 1984, but for some reason they didn’t have that information. It was delicious, though!)

There was a time I had a big crush on Shawn Micheals, too. The opening scene of Getting It with the sytlized dream effects of smoke and slow motion is a porn classic that I’ve seen dozens of times. I asked Phil St. John about him, but he had no info either.

A good source for “what ever happened to” (WEHT) questions is the discussion forums at Atkol. Post your question and the porn obsessed faithful that frequent the site often has some answers.
