JESSE SANTANA WINS GAY ESCORT OF THE YEAR AT RENTBOY’S HOOKIES
Jesse Santana won International Escort of the Year last night at the Hookies, which might make him the Woody Allen of the gay porn escort industry. Find out why, and what a dollar buys, after the jump …
After all, it was only a few years ago that Jesse denounced escorting, roaring that making porn was not escorting, and that while he was a porn star, he’s no escort. Let alone interested in getting an award for being one. At the time, I didn’t really care — Jesse was a hairless twink living in a cave and wearing a loin cloth.
Wrote Jesse in an open letter to the industry in 2008:
Some may argue that both parties are paid for sex, but consider this: porn stars choose how to express themselves, whereas escorts are at the mercy of their clients desires. Porn stars are selling a finished product, a scene or a DVD. An escort’s product is his/her own body or time. Adult film is completely legal and an honest form of acting, or entertainment rather. The hard truth is that the core of most every escort’s business is prostitution, which is illegal in all but two states in the United States. Porn models are paid by check by legitimate companies, whereas escorts are usually paid in cold hard cash by free-standing individuals. It’s a free country, do what you choose, but many porn stars would rather not be directly categorized with illegal jobs and situations, such as prostitution.
To be honest, Jesse Santana never was shaming sex workers (he suggested that if they did escort, they do so with pride). Jesse was just letting people know that he didn’t appreciate being treated like a Target sale bin every time he walked into a gay bar.
Now, he’s my hairy-balled dream top and I’m cursing that I didn’t put my name down before the line got too long. Not only is his dance card full, his price just shot up to $400 (outcalls only). I guess it’s back to watching Indiscretion. (BTW, Naked Sword is giving away three-day memberships this weekend if you’re interested in screening a Jesse Santana retrospective.)
