Gay Porn Stars Come Out Against Meth

Posted January 19, 2007 10:40 AM by with 0 comments, the tell-it-like-it-is San Francisco-based anti-crystal meth concern unveiled their ad latest campaign featuring gay porn stars Parker Williams, Matt Cole, Matthew Rush, Michael Brandon, Derrick Hanson, Jay Black and Tom Lazzari.

But they’re not the only ones to take a stand against meth. Spencer Quest released a statement via email last week from rehab, where he has 9 weeks left on a 90-day program to treat his crystal habit.

“I finally accepted, the week before Christmas, that my meth use had become out-of-control. And while I’ve struggled with various addictions all my life and have been able to handle them, even stop them in their tracks, crystal meth got the best of me. And I nearly killed myself. Intentionally.” And of course the meth epidemic is by no means limited to just gay porn stars. The gay community at large — with our early adopting ways — have been stupidly doing it for years. You can’t throw a rock in any gay ghetto without hitting a tweaker in the head, (but he’ll probably be too busy scratching at the imaginary bugs burrowed in his skin to notice.)

gay_porn_danny_pintauro.jpgCase in point? Who’s The Boss‘s Danny Pintaro. Fleshseeker uncovered the former child star’s chem friendly Manhunt profile, complete with pictures of the once-adorable now 30-something looking majorly dessicated and spun, half-covering his crystal-limp cock, proudly bragging that he’s into “pnpiggy fucking.”

Ugh. Can’t we just leave the crystal to be done by the white trash?

    Okay, I’m sort of out of the loop. What does “pnpiggy fucking” mean?

    Is there a higher resolution picture of the poster :-/

    I checked out their site and couldn’t find anything.

    Never have done the drug thing not into it. With that being said since doing meth is only done by ‘white trash’ what does that make the soon to be released from rehab Spencer Quest ???
    And i am pretty sure he is not the only porn star who dabbles into the drug scene.

    Good. I’ve always thought that it was wierd how the gay/ gay porn community went about talking about safe sex and healthy lifestyles while on the same hand overlooking the substance abuse problem that seem to be so prevalent among gay men. I think this is good as some of these drugs are just as life threatening as any STD, and can infact impair one’s judgement so much that it leads to further risky behaviour.
    Its nice that these porn stars have come together to spread a positive message. I dont see why it had to really take a group of shirtless guys to get this point across.

    I have never done drugs and I am thankful that I never went down that road. Do I think I am better than those who have? No. I just simply feel I made the right choice.

    I think substance abuse is a terrible thing. Its hard enough being gay in this country without having a substance abuse problem. I used to be addicted, but have finally come clean with the help of my boyfriend. It is so awesome to be free of drugs. I wish the gay community would have offered me more support when I quit heroin cold turkey.

    I am so glad to hear that Spencer Quest is getting help with his addiction. I have lost to many good friends and favorite Co-Stars to that drug.

    i just hope this “outing” of danny doesn’t destroy him. many of us have been in the same position, and until he is ready to walk the straight and narrow again, i wish him well.

    I saw Spencer at a gallery opening in early December and I was shocked at how thin and drawn he looked. I’m relieved to read that the problem is something treatable instead of what I feared.

    I wish him all the best on his recovery.

    We love you, Spencer!

    Sorry, I know there’s a case of you not posting, but this statement:

    “Ugh. Can’t we just leave the crystal to be done by the white trash?”

    Made my hackles raised.

    And I ain’t even white!

    Perhaps a discussion about classism within the gay community…

    Dude: SHAME.


  12. Tank January 27th, 2007 at 2:28 PM

    The classism? Hey, that’s great! So we can stop calling “trade” trade, and a spade a spade. Let’s all keep the truth to ourselves, because that’s what this community needs–more denial. And what will that accomplish? Um, watering down the issue, thus making it more difficult to address. Meth is a trashy drug for trashy people. A lot of those people happen to be white trash. OhHHHH!!!!! Let’s not hurt their feelings and offend their delicate sensibilites. Fuck them. They’re wonderbread. Let’s deal with meth abuse, and then, perhaps, make everyone feel better about themselves.
