joeindallas saidIsn't Matthew Rush's BF also in the Business?
Gregg (Matthew Rush) was dating a Bowling Green State University (Ohio) cheerleader named Jim, who also did porn for Falcon under the name of Tyler Gunn.
As far as the whole topic goes, i can throw some insight from the other side for you. When I was 19, I paid for my college by doing porn videos for Citiboyz Video under the name of Ethan Masters. I did 7 videos for them in 4 years. It wasn't my life, it didn't change me in a negative way, if nothing else, it opened my eyes to the world outside of the cornfields of Ohio. I have traveled the world for conventions and shoots and have met some absolutely amazing people, who have the same interests, personalities, likes, and desires as anyone with any other hobby or profession.
As someone who used to do porn, I can't even count how many times I have been turned down as a dating prospective because of my history in porn. People used to label me as a slut, whore, tramp, etc because of the job I used to have. But in all reality, that is all it is... a job. When you are on the scene of a video shoot, it is not sex, it is a designed setup with actors performing a sequence of events for a job. Every few seconds there is a shift in lighting, angle, position, etc. Your entire focus is on where the camera is as to not block the shot, and all secondary focus goes into realism of the scene. Hell, we even stopped from time to time to have a cigarette break or grab a drink. The average action scene in porn is anywhere from 10 minutes to 25 minutes in length on the standard DVD. Many of those take over 4 hours to actually film. We go through the motions and act out the scene, we portray what people want to see. At the end of the shoot, I signed my paperwork, received my check, and went home to my boyfriend who was more than happy to see me, because he knew that he was the one in my heart, the one I loved. Being in porn is certainly not for everyone and dating someone with that on their file is not for everyone either. My current boyfriend had a big deal with it at first until he got to know me. He assumed that I was some sex-crazed pervert that was only interested in getting in his pants. On the contrary when he got to know me, he learned that I had several degrees, played several musical instruments, ran 3 different youth camps, had seen more countries than most people can even pronounce and on top of it all, he learned that I was a very relationship oriented, loving and affectionate guy who wanted nothing more from life than to be happy with the guy I love.
So the original question of possessing the ability to date a porn star is completely a variable syntax from person to person. I could easily date a porn star because I know that they are coming home to me every night because they want to, not because they are getting a check to. Others can't separate the job from the love and they would be the ones who can't find comfort in accepting their past or even present.
By the way, 90% of the models you find in the adult industry are very easy going, real, genuine guys. They are not genetically engineered to fuck for 4 hours without breaking a sweat, they are boys and guys who grew up in houses just like everyone else and loved and laughed and lived their lives just like what some would call the "normal" people. On the downside, with any statistic with a positive side, there are those that bring down the average, and hopefully none of you will have to deal with the drama, games or delusion that any of them would exhibit.
