Is Carter Dane The Best Gay Porn Star Of 2016?

Posted January 2, 2017 by with 55 comments

7-1It’s that time of year again: Str8UpGayPorn is proud to present the 4th Annual Str8ie Awards for 2016′s Best Gay Porn Star!

Last year’s winner was Diego Sans, 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. To be eligible for 2016’s Best Gay Porn Star, the gay porn star must have appeared in at least five gay porn scenes in 2016. All of the gay porn stars who were nominated for this award in previous years (2013, 2014, 2015) are NOT eligible this year.

Str8UpGayPorn’s first nominee for 2016’s Best Gay Porn Star was Justin Owen, the second was JJ Knight, the third was Tegan Zayne, the fourth was Calvin Banks, the fifth was Sean Cody’s Randy, the sixth nominee was ChaosMen’s Gerard, and today’s seventh nominee is Carter Dane!

cd5Like so many of the Str8ie nominees, the only thing rivaling Carter Dane’s movie star good looks and incredible physique is his genuinely kind and charmingly sweet personality. A true gentleman in every regard, Carter Dane was quite possibly the most dreamed about man of 2016, and he just makes gay porn—not to mention the whole world—a better place.

img_9385Wherever he appeared in 2016—his scenes at Men.com and MenAtPlay, his scenes at CockyBoys (where he became an exclusive), his Instagram, his Twitter—Carter Dane always made jaws drop and dicks rise. One of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do is limit the number of Carter Dane photos in this article. Selfies, studio pics, gifs, in clothes, out of clothes…there is no image of Carter Dane that’s not worth posting.

cater1 cd3 cxex0umxgaakxtk cd7cg1A former ballet dancer, Carter Dane’s body is obviously perfection. His surreal bubble butt, in particular, has been responsible for making every one of his scene partners practically lose their minds and shoot uncontrollably huge loads. If you’re a gay porn star who’s lucky enough to be paired in a scene with Carter Dane, please prepare accordingly. Once you see his ass (or his face), you won’t last long.

img_9712colbycarterdustincarterdiegocumCarter Dane’s popularity skyrocketed in 2016, bringing in more search results and page views than any other performer on Str8UpGayPorn. Then, his scene with Adam Ramzi was ranked as one of the three best gay porn scenes of 2016. Can Carter Dane keep his winning streak going by being named 2016’s Best Gay Porn Star? He’ll face off against nine other gay porn stars when fan voting begins on January 5th.

(Note: Fan voting for Str8UpGayPorn’s Best Gay Porn Star award was set to begin last week, but due to extended holiday weekends and scheduling conflicts, voting will now begin this week, on January 5th, after all 10 nominees have been announced.)

  • Tim

    well, here we have probably the best bottom in the industry. So, that has to count for something, certainly.

    • Bill

      Saw a few pics of Carter Dane on a gay website recently. He’s gorgeous, needless to say. Hearing all the negative about him gets old. These comments no doubt come from old, jealous, unattractive and out of shape guys who don’t take care of themselves and have a lot of insecurities. He appears cut but he’s UNCUT and he’s got a short FORESKIN, (yum, yum) and this is a plus in my book, too many ‘butchered’ (cut) guys in gay porn.

  • Mike

    I was lucky enough to meet him this past year, and not only is he incredibly hot, but he’s also a genuinely nice guy! Definitely gets my vote!

    • GrownFury

      OMG I love Steven Universe! That show’s everything. Perfect pic too! LOL

      • Joey

        Lol thanks! Yeah, it’s an awesome show and great for reactions shots/gifs too.

  • Marik Ishtar

    Other than the whole lying about his dying sister thing, there isn’t much reason to scratch this guy off.

    • Henrique Alves

      Tell me more about this lying stuff D:

  • sxg

    Well, fuck. You do realize you pretty much destroyed any chance of anyone else winning? And what’s worse, now JJ Knight, Tegan Zayne and Randy are no longer elgible for next year. Here’s praying there’s somme top quality guys coming later this year, because the list of 2017 nominees is looking bleak already!

  • nandes
  • pangelboy

    He’s attractive, seems like a solid performer, stays out of controversy, and is an out gay man.

  • Ben

    Physically, he’s flawless. But there’s something about him that I just don’t look for in a porn star. Too perfect?

    • Two Cents

      I’m not into him like that. He’s handsome and all but doesn’t turn me on for nothing. He is like Darius Ferdinand for me – too pretty or missing something for me to get into him.

      • Xzamilloh

        I thought I was the only one for a second. Try as I might, he just does not do it for me. But that body is snatched.

        • Two Cents

          No you aren’t the only one man. He just doesn’t do it for a lot of men to be honest. He got a nice little body, no doubt, and a handsome face, but his performance and his whole whatever it may be is just not a turn on.

    • Junya

      Completely feeeling same here. He’s really hot and beautiful, but to be honest, that’s it.
      Watching just one video of him is enough. He doesn’t act so every work he does is the same. just boring.

  • AussieB

    I’d like to see him at least attempt a flip. He’s one of those models that I wonder why he isn’t doing mainstream modeling and acting instead of porn. He’s just beautiful. If you’re not sure your man is gay, show him some nude pics & video of Carter & see how his dick reacts. His interactions on social media make him seem like a smart, sensitive, kind man – —- someone who goes a long way to combat those negative stereotypes of porn performers. He seems too good to be true. Not that porn isn’t a valid choice but I sometimes wonder what a person’s like this real life circumstances are that lead him to porn. Good Canadian import

    • realitytvIV

      It’s easier and quicker to earn money in porn than to slowly attempt to build up a career in the movie or modelling industry unless you have connections or money, of course.

  • Maximus

    Carter definitely has the best ass in gay porn. I’m also quite fond of his hairstyle.

    http://www.fuse.tv/image/5509f915062a4e4611000009/816/545/undefined.gif

    That’s exacty how I would do my hair if I had the patience to fastidiously gel and quaff it.

    • Scrapple

      You already knoooowwww!

      • Two Cents

        I already know that the best booty in the game this year was Chino Blac – real talk.

        • Scrapple

          I’ll allow it.

      • moondoggy

        That’s what they said to her when she asked if living in subsidized housing constituted fraud.

          I am on here laughing my black behind off right now over your comment. You a straight up fool for that man, straight up fool!

        • Two Cents

          I keep comin back to this just to laugh. I cant even type straight laughin so hard at this. Watch, Im be having sex tonight and think about this and whoever Im with is going be like WTH is wrong with you. ROTFLMBO!

    • Two Cents

      No sir, the best booty in the biz this year goes to Chino Blac. Too bad this site doesn’t cover more ethnic performers bc everyone would’ve been like “what a** on Carter Dane” if they saw Chino Blac. Check out his scene with Dee-Lite and you’ll find out…do it on mute though – lol!

  • yeah yeah

    YASSSSSSSSS!

  • sans

    Just when the list wasn’t hard to choose already you made it even more tough!

  • Zealot

    Oh Carter Dane

    Oh Carter Dane
    Oh Carter Dane
    My peen is so inspired

  • FieldMedic

    “Is Carter Dane The Best Gay Porn Star Of 2016?” Yes x 1,000,000. I don’t know what we, or the industry, did right to deserve him?!

  • Scrapple

    Carter Dane stays serving Count of Monte Cristo Aristocratic Realness.

  • Sebastian S

    Never even a question that he’s my winner. In addition to everything stated, he’s an incredible performer who also has not been overexposed. It’s been ages since a performer has had my attention like him. That scene with Colby was incredible, and the combined hotness of his MAP scenes with Dato and Klein was off the charts. I could stare at his torso for days.

    I mean I am complete lust with Tegan and JJ is the classic choice, but number one is the great Dane.

  • Steve

    #1. He’s gay. #2. That ass. #3. The body. #4. Despite the haters, his interview was sweet. But JJ is my pick because he’s done bb, high end studios, is versatile and that dick!

  • DrunkEnough

    Rockin’ body, of course, but it seems like in half his scenes, he’s checking himself out in a mirror while he’s getting fucked, and that level of vanity spoils it all for me. We’re supposed to be ogling HIM. But he does it to himself. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3175c252c2b43487ec516dde967031b0158fcad67f2bed2e6c231f12b4c8c39d.gif

  • snoopyfo

    this year nominees are really solid and very good choices, im very excited but also its going to be really hard to just pick one when time to vote comes

  • gaysiantwink

    Yes, he didn’t have any competition at all this year. Best bottom I’ve seen in porn yet.

  • SteadyNUnremitting

    Carter Dane is everything! He was the it bottom of 2016. I wonder if he will show his versatile side this year. Plus he represents for the Canadian hot boys.

  • BLACKjHAMMER

    I love Carter his ass is the BEST no need 2 see the REST !

  • DaveAtom

    Absolutely he is so dreamy and his body is arguably the best in porn, no mention he’s a great peformer…
    Ok, ok, yes, def. in my top three, but I still think Tegan is the best so far

  • Two Cents

    I know everybody trippin off of his butt and I’m not gonna hate bc it’s shapely. But his arch game makes it more than what it is. The real booty of the year belongs to Chino Blac. If you don’t know look him up and see what I mean.

  • Pertinax

    Handsome ! His body is beautiful, his chest ( …and nipples ) above all. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0377ed22367a8f232e3107a2a37f78013b1e13c1877dc0a49f3dd18b37d42e66.jpg

  • goosegui
  • Chris Pringle

    No

  • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    He’s the PERFECT BOTTOM.
    a bigger dick & he’d be perfect

  • tarddy

    No.

  • Al

    He’s gorgeous no doubt. But my vote goes to a man that proves he’s as good as a bottom as he is a top. Carter has yet to prove that.

  • Joseph Thomas

    The first time I saw him on camera my mouth dropped. Beautiful body, and so incredibly handsome. As the sex progressed, and his suit was ripped off his body while his bf got revenge for his snide remarks (I can see that happening in real life) I didn’t find him sexual. Completely hairless on his body and even his ass, it made me think at any time there would be a stop in production so the Macy’s girl could reapply his makeup and a hairstylist would make sure ever lock was in place. Look he is beautiful and he knows it. I wonder who has the job of making sure there is not a single hair in that anal area – I am sure there would be multiple applicants for that job. Would I want to be on top of him, no. I know perfection would be looking at me in the eye. Would I want him inside me, no. Why? He would be staring off in a mirror rather then concentrating on getting off. I would love to see him a raunchy video by a company we all know (and secretly like) and have about 5 tops defile him – and NOT allow him to check his hair, his makeup or anything. Treat him like the bottom he truly is – fuck his brains out but this time let the tops have some fun making the “pretty boy” a little uncomfortable. I still love you Carter Dane, you have the best hair in porn, but please let up on the attitude. Good luck to Carter!

    • Bill

      Carter Dane doesn’t appear to have attitude. Again, jealousy rears its ugly head. I live in San Francisco and a lot of men here could take personality lessons from him: being classy, nice and respectful, things that many of the men in San Francisco seem to lack, and having lived here for some time, I’m a bit of an expert!, Too many arrogant, rude and aloof gay guys here in San Francisco that seem to think they’re everything: the world revolves around them, their SHIT don’t stink and it’s all about them!

  • BLACKjHAMMER

    Carter ass is noble prize material
