Gay Porn Portal

(Mostly about gay porn resources, with some plain language but no actually X-rated images (though the images flirt with the rating). And there are several linguistic points.)

Yesterday I stumbled across a Gay Porn Site (as it labels itself) called “cocksuckers guide” (how crude is that?). The name cocksucker here is not used more or less literally, as ‘fellator’ (esp. a male fellator), and it certainly is not used as in this NOAD2 entry for the word:

vulgar slang, chiefly N. Amer.  a contemptible person (used as a generalized term of abuse)

Instead, it’s used in a sense that’s historically intermediate between those two senses, as ‘gay man, queer’: though what gay men actually share is a sexual attraction to other men, fellating other men is the characteristic sexual act of a gay man, so it was natural to extend cocksucker to refer to gay men in general; but then distaste for gay men and their sexual activities contaminated the term cocksucker, and it became a slur, a term of abuse, at first used of gay men and then generalized, ultimately even to inanimate objects: (said of a recalcitrant corkscrew) This cocksucker [or: this cocksucking corkscrew] doesn’t work!

Now, in the real world, not all gay men are, or have been, sexually active, and the ones who are don’t all suck cock — some give but don’t take, and some engage in other sexual activities (frottage, masturbation with other men, anal intercourse) but not cocksucking (and, of course, not all cocksuckers are men). Cocksucker is a label for gay men, not a definition — but most gay men suck cock (or have sucked cock or hope to suck cock), so cocksucker is not at all a bad label.

On to the gay porn site. It has four sections, named CockSucker Videos (free videos), Adult Site Directory, Porn Star Directory, and Straight Porn Studs for Gay Guys. I’ll take these up one by one.

CockSucker Videos (free videos): as far as I can tell, these are almost all clips from videos or trailers for them; they’re designed to get you to subscribe to on-line video services.

Adult Site Directory: takes you to sites offering on-line videos or DVDs. But not to gay blogs; the sites of gay artists; gay publications; service sites like Commercial Closet, the LGBT Historical Society of San Francisco, etc.; gay goods providers, including homo-oriented underwear and jockstrap sites; organizations like Blow Buddies; and so on

Porn Star Directory: a huge (nearly 9,000-man) directory of gay pornstars, helpfully indexed by first and last names, with photos and lists of their films, and sometimes with informative write-ups about their careers. Diverse “types”, races and ethnicities, nationalities. The source of the three photos I’ll post below.

Straight Porn Studs for Gay Guys. At first I thought straight porn studs was parsed

[ straight ]  [ porn studs ]

and that this section was offering links to sites with (ostensibly) straight guys doing gay porn, either as amateurs or as pros — that is, to gay-for-pay (G4P) guys. There are a lot of them, and there’s a huge market for their work, thanks to many guys’ belief that straight men are inherently more masculine, and (if you are gay) therefore more desirable, than frankly gay men.

But no: the intended parsing is

[ straight porn ]  [ studs ]

that is, guys who act in straight porn. The links are to material that might be of interest to gay viewers for one reason or another — mostly, it seems, because these straight pornstars are working with guys in drag.

Like guys who do gay porn, these guys have wonderful names, emphasizing masculinity, aggressiveness, power, and the like:

Mike Panic, Will Havoc, Jimmy Bullet, Max Thrust, Slate Steele, Max Steele, Bobby Bull, Luke Hotrod, Brandon Bronco, Johnny Rocket, …

Bonus feature: three porn actors (two not at all well known, one a genuine pornstar), of three different body types. First, slender, cute twink Christian Connor, doing a cock-tease with his briefs:

(#1)

Then athletic, male-model type Petr Herman, doing a cock-tease with his jeans unbuttoned and pulled down:

(#2)

And finally, one of the truly huge, veteran pornstar Billy Herrington, exhibiting his massive musculature:

(#3)
