R.I.P. Peter de Rome, The ‘Grandfather of Gay Porn’
"De Rome was  responsible for inventing at least two elements that became gay porn staples. An often audacious film-maker, he used secretly filmed footage of a famously reclusive movie star, and men having real sex on the New York subway, in his productions. But although his work was superior to that of almost all his porn contemporaries, de Rome was only briefly a “name”. His stature as an erotic artist was recognised as he neared the end of his life."

Too many to list here. Go back through my Tumblr and you’ll see examples.

No clue.  Maybe just left the industry?

As far as I can tell… yes!

A late gay porn star has stunned Hollywood with allegations he bedded “Superman" star Christopher Reeve. Cal Culver gave up the sordid details in an interview before he died in 1987 and now the lost chat has been unearthed and included in new book Hollywood Babylon Strikes Again. Culver, who died of an AIDS-related illness, told the unnamed interviewer he met Reeve when both were auditioning for the same Broadway role in the mid-1970s. In the chat, the porn star says, “Christopher was a great lover and I think I liberated him sexually. I didn’t think he was gay but he seemed willing to try anything once. He was curious.” In the book extract, obtained by the Globe, Culver calls Reeve “the man of my dreams” and reveals the two men had a passionate affair that lasted for two months - until the future Superman learned his partner was a gay porn star, who performed under the name Casey Donovan. Reeve died of heart failure in 2004, almost a decade after he was paralysed in a horse fall.Source

Anonymous said: is lance gear dead? And why do you think gay porn stars kill themselves so often what a sad thing for them to do when million of men love them.

I think it’s a mixture of reasons why they kill themselves: mental illness that goes untreated, drugs, sexual illness… but, then again, many don’t kill themselves - they just move on to other careers. 

Eventually, someone’s going to do a more indepth study on this and answer this question better than me!

Haven’t heard anything on either of them being dead. What made you think they had passed away?
