XL gay porn star

It’s that time of year again: Str8UpGayPorn is proud to present the 3nd Annual Str8ie Awards for 2015′s Best Gay Porn Star! Last year’s winner was gay porn icon Colby Keller, so who will take home the gay porn industry’s most prestigious trophy this year? It’s 100% up to you. Like last year, the Str8ie winner will be determined solely by fan voting, and like last year, there will be 10 nominees.

Reminder: To be eligible for 2015’s Best Gay Porn Star, the gay porn star must have appeared in at least five gay porn scenes in 2015. Also: Gay porn stars who were nominated for this award in previous years are NOT eligible this year.

The nominees revealed so far are Rocco Steele, Liam Riley, Tom Faulk, Andrew Stark, and Diego Sans. Today, Str8UpGayPorn can announce the sixth nominee for 2015’s Best Gay Porn Star: XL!

xl-4Easily one of the most lusted-after performers of 2015, XL has turned in one great performance after another. He has some of the most loyal fans in gay porn, and for good reason. Just look at him.

tumblr_nu5tb5Mswf1s6iuu4o5_1280Maybe one of the best things about a new XL scene coming out is that you never know which role he’ll be in: Top? Bottom? A flip-fuck? Regardless of the position, you can never go wrong watching XL fuck.

One of XL’s best topping performances was with Brandon Jones for NextDoor:

XL can take it just as hard as he gives it, as evidenced by the intense pounding he took from Bam Bam:

XL’s insights into the gay porn industry, as revealed during his Str8UpGayPorn interview in February, prove that he’s much more than just a pretty face (and a giant cock, and a perfect ass), so hopefully we’ll hear and see a lot more from him in 2016. Before then, XL faces off against nine other gay porn stars when voting for 2015’s Best Gay Porn Star begins on December 31st.

  • Todd
  • sxg

    He’s better than the majority on this list, but no. Definitely NOT better than Diego Sans!

    • Mike Julius

      XL is sexier. Therefore, this opinion is invalid.

      • sxg

        XL is indeed sexy, but Diego is by far the overall better performer, even if he’s just topped. And also, there is no comparison to Diego’s beyond ridiculously insane body!

        • Xzamilloh

          You better stop with those Damon Wayans, Jr. gifs because I will legit fuck my laptop and break my penis on that man’s gorgeous face!!!

          But, I disagree… XL is by far the better performer as he seems to enjoy any position and any kind of sex. Even the peeing shit that gay R. Kelly would love, but grosses me the fuck out. But, Diego does have the better body and keeps it tight… XL just does it for me, regardless of the pouch that’s surfaced on his belly.

        • Mike Julius

          He’s more ripped, sure, but that’s all Diego has on him.

          Diego is hot and all, but XL is fine as fuck. Fine as fuck is better than hot.

          Face, performance, overall sexiness means I’m right and you’re wrong.

          So

        • Iain Gardener

          The obvious resolution to this question is for Diego and XL to do a flip scene so we can all make up our minds

  • Tim

    of the current 6, he would be 3rd for me (behind Stark and Sans) but a good pick.

  • sam my

    I’d say yeah. Everyone else on the list are pretty boring and forgettable.

  • FrenchBug

    I’d make a comment about how underwhelming the nominees are so far but I realize it would sound like bitching at you when the issue is the current state of porn.

    XL is a good-looking guy, decent performer but a star? No. Neither were the others.

    At this point being the “best gay porn star of 2015” is like being the smartest one on “The View”.

    • Dazzer

      I don’t know.

      At this point, I feel that the estimable Sire is going left field to such an extent that he’s making a point.

      Obviously, Diego Sans and Liam Riley are the most obvious winners, with Rocco Steele coming in as a close third.But that’s just based on a stereotype of what a ‘gay porn star’ should look like and behave.

      I really like Zach’s choices this year because he makes you stop and think.

      I was utterly Team Faulk, but now I’m thinking Team XL. I’m also considering Team Stark – because none of them are conventional. What they bring to the screen is their unconventional beauty (in gay porn terms only) but also masses of personality. For me, I like the quirks of men as much as I do basic physical attractiveness.

      And this year, Zachary has included men who are interesting just as much as they’re physically beautiful.

      Much as I usually agree with you, Frenchbug, this year I think you’ve got it wrong.

      In his usual cuntish fashion, the Child Sire is saying make a decision about men, rather than a porn stereotype. It’s a fascinating list.

      Obviously, Sans or Riley will win, but I love the decisions the infant Zachary has forced us to make this year

      • sxg

        Just Diego. lolno on Liam Riley.

        • Dazzer

          Oh sxg, you gorgeous boy. You know the look I’m giving you right now…. :-)

      • Stacy

        Well thought out – I agree – times change and as the Tower of Power song went “What is Hip” constantly changes. I am thrilled that someone like Reilly can be considered (and employed) in the porn world. Zach has assembled a terrific bunch thus far and not a bunch of SC carbon cookies. And XL continues this thought-provoking, drool inducing list. Now if only XL and Liam would have a scene!

    • Norminah

      No I’d tug on Zach’s weave a bit, ‘cuz there’s plenty of better or equally handsome porn stars that..emerged…this year that he didn’t choose to nominate. Cutlerx, Sean Costin, Sean Cody’s Randy or Sean, Alex Mecum, Sebastian Kross, Antonio Miracle, Dylan James…

      • nodoubtfan

        “Like last year, the Str8ie winner will be determined solely by fan voting, and like last year, there will be 10 nominees.”

        There are still four more nominees to go, so some of the people you mentioned might be nominated as well.

  • Zealot

    PREACH!

  • Okosan

    So far Andrew Diego and XL are in my vote
    1.Diego
    2.XL
    3.Andrew
    4.Rocco
    5.Tom
    6.Liam

    • sxg

      I am in agreement on this placement so far.

      • jackson803

        Flip Tom and Rocco’s position in that list, and you have it right. The only thing exciting about Rocco is his huge tool. Beyond that, all of his performances are lackluster. Most of his bottoms are the real star in all of his scenes (the ones who actually enjoy taking that cock, that is).

        • sxg

          No changes and no substitutes!!!

  • Stephen

    The issue with XL is his NAME. I try searching XL gay or something similar and it takes me to XL-sized cocks, not to his social media or vids. It is VERY difficult finding his material online if you don’t know which specific black-dominated studios he’s working for. I have a feeling this affects him greatly.

    • asby

      I don’t understand why African American models have these odd names?…Were they strippers before porn and just kept the name?….It really can’t help him on social media

      • sxg

        I don’t understand why XL of all things and it actually surprises me that Raging Falcon House even let it slide. The same goes with King B.

      • nick

        It’s like the guys on BiLatinMen, they have some really laughable porn names.

      • BjorkNut

        Well to not delve to deeply into racial politics, my theory on why ethnic performers get ridiculous names is due in part that they are seen as modern day minstrels by those that hire them. Additionally, most of those studios also pander to base stereotypes by associating them to thugs, or wrong side of the tracks kind a people. Very few ethnic porn actors make it into the predominant mainstream porn market and those that due tend to have the ability to “pass” and/or have anglicized names. But that’s just my thought. Great to see some diversity creeping in!

  • Mike Julius
  • Xio Mai

    He is cute for a black guy but I dont want him to bottom. It is the first time to know this guy and I like him and Diogo Sans

  • Xzamilloh

    Yes!! Yes!! Yes all fucking day!!! Not even up for discussion… if anyone says different

    http://www.reactiongifs.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/i-will-find-you-and-i-will-kill-you-gif.gif

  • Norminah

    This is for me Zach’s first legit nom. XL’s had some great memorable scene this year, both condom and non, Interracial as well as black. For me both he and Rocco Steele are my favourites to win, with maybe Diego are the ‘vanilla’ vote.

  • sxg

    If we’re going to have just one black model for this list, then I think you should have gone with Bam Bam! Seeing that gif of him really drilling into XL makes me remember how fucking amazing he’s been this year. Not only is he an incredibly amazing top, he bottoms like a pro as well!

    • Mike Julius

      Now I know for sure you need a taste calibration. (You have to take it in to your dealer. That is, pray for better taste.)

      Bam Bam over XL? Absurd, sir! Absurd!

    • Eric AS

      Who said we’re only being offered one black porn star this year? Harlem has a fun personality and is a recent breakout star. I also don’t remember if Sean Zevran was nominated last year. If not he would be as worthy as twink butt, I mean Liam Riley.

      • sxg

        IF, bitch, IF!!!

        And Sean Zevran was nominated last year, sadly. he honestly would have had a great shot of winning this year’s as well he never disappoints.

  • Odetofear

    He’s a good contender, but i just wish he showed more facial enthusiasm He’s just a little bit to expressionless during his scenes. But damn he is beautiful. So far:
    Andrew Stark
    XL
    Diego Sans
    Liam Riley
    Rocco Steele
    Tom Faulk

  • slipperyslope

    He gives me all the right feels in all the right places. Yes, yes. YES!

  • john

    Whoa!!

  • nick

    Gets my vote.

  • BjorkNut

    Would be great if he was, but, I imagine the title will go to the white guy.

  • XL’s got my vote!!!!

  • I enjoyed his scene with Logan Moore, but I think that is because of Logan Moore. Mmmmmmmm Logan Moore. *drool

  • robirob

    I like the picture of him smiling the best. Also the first one in the second row. Given the sad state of gay porn right now I kind of hope that he will remain a hidden treasure before Men.com, well, men.com-ifies him.

    • sxg

      I love his smile, his whole face lights up. I don’t understand why he doesn’t do it more often. In the rest of the pics he looks downright bored and like he’d rather be anywhere else but there.

      • Mike Julius

        Those looks read more like concentration/smolder to me. Maybe why he and Diego are reversed in our respective lists.

    • Mimi B

      XL’s smile is like a laser beam pointed right at my twat! It rejuvenates & gives the hottest sensation to my erect clit…

  • Okosan

    The real question is who is better Andrew Stark Diego Sans or XL ?

  • FieldMedic

    YES!!! Can fuck, can be fucked and do both looking good!

  • Maximus
  • Tim

    I didn’t believe a lot of you when you said that it would be hard to find his vids. but it sure is. his name really gets in the way.

  • nodoubtfan

    An emphatic HELL YES to XL! Fine as hell, great performer, smart and thoughtful (according to his Twitter, at least), and a nice guy. I just got his 2016 calendar too, so I’ll have some XL in my house all year ’round!

    http://reactiongifs.me/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/happy-carlton-banks-excited-the-fresh-prince-of-bel-air.gif

  • yeah yeah

    Hell YES! I stroked my meat to a few of his scenes recently. He is sexy, handsome and a great performer.

  • FooFight

    I have no idea who this guy is, but when I saw that wiener, I sure did perk up.

  • FooFight

    I have no idea who this guy is, but when I saw that big ol’ wiener, I sure did perk up.

  • DPS

    He is fuckin handsome as can be but always so subdued. Diego is still my fav of the pack so far because he connects in his scenes so well and when that body ripples when moving, well… Enough said. When XL gets more engaged he can “thrust into porn stardom” and I hope he does!

  • Bossy Boy

    XL…Buh-bye curious! I’m Out!

    • Mike Julius

      Glad you know the way out.

      • Marcus Collack

        Right, it’s like: “Can I help you find the door quicker?”

  • Marcus Collack

    OH MY DAMN!! YES JESUS OF GOOD GOD, HOT DAMN HALLELUJAH!!

    • Mike Julius

      lol yes

  • bo69

    He is absolutely amazing and loves, absolutely loves, to eat cum. Gets my vote.

  • Yup. Hands down…

  • Handsome guy, sexy body and oh yeah down low!

  • Pascal

    XL is beyond perfect. Give my sincerest apologies the other nine losers.

  • Casey Scott

    I like XL a lot as a performer and a person, but…I just wish he could stay hard while bottoming. If he could do that, he’d be perfect and an easy contender for Best Porn Star of 2015. He does everything else very well!

  • pennessee
  • CarlA

    XL ALL day Baby!!!

  • Caleb Exhem

    Can we just end this and give it to him ? Because he is a sexy ass brother :)

  • kkdd1

    I think XL could be a break out star but unfortunately they continue to use in niche roles denying him of becoming the break out star that I think he can be . other than that I do not think there where any break out stars of 2015 !
