GAY PORN NEWS: Roman Ragazzi Scandal Unfolds

Posted May 7, 2007 2:49 AM by with 0 comments

It’s obviously naive to think if you do porn there won’t be certain consequences; if you’re, say, an elementary school teacher or (in the case of Roman Ragazzi, in politics), you are going to lose your job if and when people find out you fuck men on camera for money.

What I found bizarre about Roman’s story appearing in the NY Post is that it seemed as if the paper was somehow behind Roman’s resignation form the Israeli consulate. After a swarm of text messages, phone calls and emails from Collin O’Neal this past weekend (Collin is traveling through China at the moment) it turns out that there may be more than meets the eye and the scandal may be the work of a stalker/con-man with some majorly cruel intentions.

Roman has been friends with Collin for about three years. Their passion for (and differing views on) Mideast politics ignited their relationship from the start. When Roman asked Collin his advice about doing porn for another studio, Collin teamed up with Raging Stallion and they offered him a co-exclusive deal with RSS and his own production company, which Roman accepted.

The scandal began to unfold when a man calling himself Sean Michael Kirkham (claiming to be a diamond dealer and party promoter) offered Roman and two other models a trip Cannes and Hungary where they were to be hosts of parties Kirkham claimed to be throwing, according to O’Neal.

Collin said he started doing some research on Kirkham and got suspicious when he found an entry on a myspace blog with a similar story, and some phony press releases boasting how wealthy and influential he was.

Despite his warning, Roman seemed to trust Kirkham after several lengthy phone conversations with him, and in the end he confided in him his full name and where he worked. Two weeks later O’Neal received a message from Roman informing him that Kirkham apparently had sent an email to his employer informing them of his porn career and he was subsequently fired.

Over the next few days Roman started getting calls from various media outlets about his side of the story. It would seem that Kirkham wasn’t happy with just getting him fired; he allegedly wanted the story in the international press. Neither Roman nor Collin believed that the mainstream media would pick up the story, but — to their shock — the story got picked up by The NY Post and then several Israeli papers followed suit.

At the moment Roman is now trying to figure out how to deal with the delicate issue of his family that have sent him several e-mails after seeing the headlines in the Israeli press.

Despite all this, Roman’s porn career seems to be going pretty strong, at least. He’s filmed two scenes for Collin O’Neal Productions, and a couple for Raging Stallion. Roman’s first scene — which was filmed in Miami on a boat and will feature Roman in a three-some with Mason Wyler and CJ Madison — will be released May 15th.

    I have had a long passion to do porn, even know a bunch of friends in the biz and even some studio owners, but I work at a university and I know theres no way I could get away with it. A few years ago after I came out I had a big muscle profile for about a year, then this couple that became pissed off at me because I wasn’t into them e-mailed my profile link to the University, it was pretty bad but I still kept my job and those were just a few naked pics. One of the first things I always want to know is do the families and friends of these guys know, some blush and say OH NO LOL and I wonder if they realize how close they could be to some pissed off friend

    Look, it’s a shame that anyone has to suffer for being outed before he or she is ready, HOWEVER, if you fuck ON CAMERA you have to be slightly retarded to think that part of your life will just stay compartmentalized and tidy.

    Give me a break!

    I wish Roman all the best and I hope the premature outing isn’t too traumatic for him.

    He’s very attractive and I look forward to seeing his films.

    wow this is very sad. I hope that Roman can get some justice against this stupid kirkham guy and he goes to jail!

    Goto Jail? get real! for what? From what I read this guy Kirkham only outted Roman and thats not a crime. Besides this story looks as if it was written and edited by Collin O’Neal himself. What a sick piece of self-promotion (including recent happy pic from Tibet) Is this how he is helping ther passionate friendship?

    Hornynoc –

    What exactly did “this stupid kirkham guy” do that would warrant sending him to jail? I don’t agree with what Kirkham did, but it’s not a criminal offense.

    Roman is a budding porn star. Sooner or later it was going to come out. The fact that Roman hadn’t prepared for any fallout and the fact that he put his trust in Kirkham even though Collin O’Neal warned him about the guy makes this problem his and his alone. Roman told Kirkham his real name and what he does for a living. He’s responsible for his own outing.

    I can’t get over all the whining on here about his being treated unfairly. What the fuck?! As far as I’ve read, he was filmed secretly, nor did he lose his job at the UN while several straight male porn stars kept theirs. So – again – what the fuck?! The man is a hooker of sorts and he was called on it.

    It’s too bad that hookers and porn performers aren’t accepted as bankers, leaders and captains of industry but they’re not.

    It’s a bad thing that happened to him obviously. But he should have known better, if you are going to have such a public persona such as a porn star you really need to watch who has access to that kind of information. When you live a double life like he was it gets very tricky to keep things a secret. But you can’t blame him for wanting to do porn, he has got a great body,and a huge cock. I sure he will land on his feet.

    Roman deserves more respect as a human, he’s got the right to be happy, whatever the choice he makes…….

    Actually, I know who Sean Kirkham is. I remember he ripped me off by writing me a bogus cheque for some work I did for him, he then fled the country (or so he would have me believe). He actually caused me a lot of hardship.
    I also remember he was fired from a job at a call centre for stealing peoples credit card numbers. Watch out for this guy, he really is a con-artist.
