    What a horrible way to end a young adult lifeicon_sad.gif This guy must have been under intense pressure to produce more than he could possibly handle or he just became so depressed over his purpose in life being nothing more than a sex object. These stars also had a horrible habit of abusing themselves with countless drugs along with a poor diet and constantly being in a rat race situation. The porn business is a cold hearted, greedy, fussy enterprise. Once you start to show signs of tiring out or slowing down, you are out the door with nothing to show for it.

    So very sad. Parents should not have to bury their children, especially as young as this kid.

    Sad. And his family was supportive. Drugs. For some, I think genetics just instantly sends you down a disasterous path. Others seem able to waltz right through. Russian roulette. Watch your friends closely. We all need all the help we can get.

    So young! I have never had the slightest desire to try drugs, and don't understand why some are so eager to embrace them. This is a tragic and senseless loss.

    If the studio was smart, they hopefully got one last scene from him before full decomposition set in.

    Horribly sad but true.icon_sad.gif The bright lights, big money, instant recognition continue to lure countless young adults into the dangerous rat race known as the porn star business. Parents don't let your boys grow up to be porn stars.

    I'm very sorry this kid ended his life, but why is it gay men seem to have more sympathy for porn stars than anyone else? Every time a porn star dies, you can count on a thread being made about them here and what a great loss it is.

    If you really care about all these guys, stop supporting prostitution. Every time someone here talks about selling their bodies for cash, 90% of you are there to cheer him on. And anytime someone tries to warn them of the mental/emotional consequences, you quickly bash them into shutting up.

    Unfortunately, it is not unusual for porn stars to die young. Often they become involved with drugs and begin a downhill spiral.

    Even if they remain healthy, they eventually reach a point at which they can no longer be employed as porn actors. Then, unless they have saved enough money to retire on, they are likely to have employment problems. There are not many jobs for which experience as a porn actor would be helpful. Besides, what are they to put on their resumes? Accounting for the years between completing school and applying for a conventional job would be difficult.

    Considering the affect that working as porn actors has on people, one must consider whether buying pornography tends to destroy porn actors.

    I agree with this as well. Gay men do put porn stars on a pedestal. If you are so saddened by results of the porn industry, why support it? I have seen gay bars advertised porn stars like Cher is going to be there or something.

    Not all 20 year olds are meant for college. So saying that they all belong in college is dead wrong. They do need to find gainful employment. Even working in fast food is more gainful than being a porn star. Anything is better than being a porn star.

    Where is it reported he had anything to do with prostitution? I fail to see the connection with porn videos.

    Lol! It's true though...a 20 year old who knows little about life gets into the sex industry...and voila..
    I think to get into the porn business and to prosper
    (if that's the correct word),one needs to have VERY
    thick skin. What a shame. But it was his choice.

    Helloooo porn is prostitution in a way because you are being paid to have sex with a guy not to wash his windows.
    I think 80-90% escort on the side too.

    Dead kid. That is always a sad story. But this is 2015. Life in porn is a choice and not always a good one. Fast money and fast lifestyle. Not always a great choice.

    A loss of human life is ALWAYS tragic.

    A loss of a young life is even more tragic.

    But we also must recognize the realities of the world we live in.

    A 20 year old man is an adult. It is his life, and ONLY he is entitled to call the shots. If he chooses NOT to flip the burgers at $9.00 per hour but to typically count thousands or at least hundreds of dollars after a day's work than it is his decision, and we have to both accept it and respect it, too.

    Vilifying the porn industry or even worse, the porn consumers for the tragic deaths and destinies of the porn actors is simply wrong. The consumers want it. The industry and businesses provide for whatever the consumers want within the law. Yet, no one is out there with guns, forcing anyone NOT to go around cleaning the windows but to perform sex acts before rolling cameras against payment.

    Freedom always comes with responsibility.

    And, yes, Paulflexes is right:

    Every large corporation is a cold hearted, greedy, fussy enterprise. ...

    Whenever someone comes along and offers to pay you hundreds of dollars per hour while your buddies are toiling away at say, $10.00 per hour, there has to be some hitch somewhere. Even a smart 12 year old knows this...

    Where is it reported that all mechanics have grease under their fingernails? icon_confused.gif

    I know a lot about the porn business but I won't say how as that would be divulging information about another person. But first of all, the very act of being paid to have sex on camera is prostitution. These guys very rarely get any say about who they're going to be having sex with. They can request another porn star to be on camera with but it rarely goes their way. And something most gay men will be shocked to find out is porn stars make very little money. And the more films you make, the less money you make. They're always looking for the new fresh meat, so no matter how many videos you sell, your time is very limited. And after you're been in several films, you'd make better money working at McDonalds.

    But.....once you have a name in the business, gay bars will fly you in from all over the country to dance on their bars. That's where they make their money. And a large number of people stuffing money into your g-string will simultaneously be whispering offers into your ear. Even guys who never dreamed of being a prostitute suddenly find themselves selling their ass for cash. There are some very rich gay men who frequent these places and they offer these guys ridiculous amounts of money just to allow them to suck their dicks. And any guy who just had sex on camera for chump-change isn't going to turn down several hundred bucks to lay back and get a blowjob. Almost 100% of gay porn actors are also prostitutes. And no I can't quote where I get my numbers from but I can tell you that's the truth.
