Is Diesel Washington The Best Gay Porn Star Of 2016?

Posted January 5, 2017 by with 56 comments

nsv044_sc2_004-1It’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 was ChaosMen’s Gerard, the seventh was Carter Dane, the eighth was Sean Ford, and the ninth was Bruce Beckham. Today’s tenth and final nominee is none other than Diesel Washington!

dw3The most well-known performer and the truest definition of an actual “star” on this year’s list of Best Gay Porn Star nominees, Diesel Washington has ruled the gay porn world both on camera and off for over a decade. A master of fucking as must as he is a master of self-promotion, even if you haven’t had the chance to see all of Diesel Washington’s performances, you’ve likely heard about each one of them, and 2016 might’ve been his best—if not his final—year of performing ever.

dw1Diesel Washington announced his retirement recently, but that was after a series of releases from TitanMen (where he was an exclusive until a bit of controversy unfolded, naturally) and NakedSword this year.

dieselericEach scene showed off what fans have come to idolize and admire about the larger-than-life superstar: Aggressive—yet gentle and controlled, when needed—powertopping that hits just the right spot, passionate chemistry with scene partners, and creative new fuck positions that leave viewers stunned, yet impressed (i.e., “wait, Diesel just did what?!”).

bd7The only thing more beloved than Diesel Washington’s body of work (and his body) is his ability to drag— and I mean draaaggggg—the gay porn industry’s worst people, in the most public way possible. Calling out racist gay porn stars, revealing behind-the-scenes horror stories, and reading people who deserved to be read, Diesel is one of the few who says what everyone else wants to say, but doesn’t have the balls (or the brains).

d2d7 Whether you agree with him or not, Diesel Washington’s tea is the most enlightening, entertaining, and eviscerating tea you’ll ever be served.

dw6diesel2In a struggling industry, Diesel Washington is one of the last authentic gay porn stars, who will be remembered for unforgettable performances, genuine personality, and perhaps most of all, loyalty to his true friends and fans. Might he also be remembered for winning the Str8ie award and being named 2016’s Best Gay Porn Star? He’ll face off against nine other gay porn stars when voting begins in just a few hours here on Str8UpGayPorn!

      Carter or Tegan for me… Where’s their scene? I want to see Carter flip already. No Alex Mecum nomination??? He’s been good, versatile & everywhere un all types of scenes.. Plus seems like a good, smart guy

      • Badbike

        I’ve never gotten why people wanna see people in strict positions flip when it ALWAYS ends up being fucking terrible results.

    • Hereweare

      And Sean Cody’s Randy

    • R.A.M.J

      I voted for Carter.
      My top 3 choices were Carter, Tegan, and Gerard

  • Xzamilloh

    That one of him in the leather, though…. HE CAN GET THE BUSINESS ALL DAY!!!

    Zach, I love you for your outspoken and fearless journalism in gay porn and that’s why I whitelist your site on my ad blocks…

    But sometimes, I really have to ask you this, why don’t you love yourself? You deserve better and more, you know that right?

    I mean, really, Diesel?

      Why do you have SO MANY vomit gifs?!

    • DaveAtom

      Lolololol.
      Yup. And these gifs are life.

  • Tellingthetruth

    Diesel is a real porn star!!

    Well so much for ending the list on a high note!
    I would have given her my vote 10 years ago, but she’s past her prime now. For all the criticism Diesel gets for just being an aggressive top, it’s what I loved about him as a performer the most. Nothing will ever beat her Titan scenes of yore.

  • snoopyfo

    this is a hard list but diesel still got it, i think he is still hot and he still is a good performer, he is a controversial guy, but i still masturbate to his scenes and he still sexy and hot

    • GCHQ

      Sexy and hot ? No

  • Trepakprince

    If this was a Mr. Congeniality Contest then by all means he would be in the running but this is best porn star and Gringo from Thumbelina is not it.

    There are more worthy men than Diesel, I do like him especially for his candor. Still, hard no compared to the rest of the field.

    • vanfanusa

      Pretty sure he was nominated last year. There are no repeat nominees.

  • cphotee

    Sean Ford to this. Quite the range!

  • Scrapple
  • Dazzer

    OK. Diesel gets my vote.

    I’ve never actually seen one of his sex scenes. I’ve seen him naked and erect (obviously – I read this site all the time), but I’venever actually seen him have sex on camera.

    I have a weird relationship with Diesel Washington (not that we have any kind of relationship whatsoever – I don’t think we’ve even exchanged words on a site ever).

    But back in the day, when Zach was doing his stuff for Naked Sword, he posted a link to Diesel pontifcating about condom porn and HIV and being truthful about yourself as a human creature.

    And that’s when I fell in love with him.

    At that link he might have been half-baked or he might have been fully baked (I don’t do mary-juana -it gives me a filthy headache – but I have no problems with anyone else using it), but the man was talking solid common sense, intelligence and wit.As a result of that, I dip into his ramblings on a regular basis And I’ve never thought he short-changed me in terms of making me think or understand or fight to understand something that was outside of my comfort zone.

    We all know that ‘Diesel Washington’ isn’t going to win this poll.

    I’m British and my first concept about Americans is that you can’t speak English properly. I’m also white.

    If I ever said the stuff to Diesel Washington about him being black in my country that’s said to hm in America, he could hit me in the face and no jury would convict him. It’s one of those things I don’t ‘get’ about America. Why on earth do people look at his skin colour before that look at what he says as a man?

    Anyway, I’m going to continuusly vote for Diesel Washington.,

    Given the comments that have been made about him here and elsewhere, he’s not going to win.

    But I’m still going to vote the fuck out of him.

    Hell no! Erik Rhodes was the best porn star.

    • sxg

      Oh god I miss him, especially when he was just starting his fisting phase! I’ve been blowing loads over and over for his scenes with Trent Bloom and Billy Berlin! I know he did one with Colin Black and Francois Sagat, but they fall short from the previous two I mentioned.

  • Marik Ishtar

    Diesel, I enjoy the filling yet bitter taste of fresh tea like any other patriarch of the Windsor house, but best of year you are not. Tweets do not grant awards no matter how sharp the flavor.

    I sense some Academy Awards “This may be our last chance to give him an award”-vibe going on. He worked hard for this industry but didn’t leave on top. If you want to celebrate his legacy Zach, then give him a lifetime achievement or charisma award. Don’t put him next to his successors and expect him to shine.

    Best of luck out there Terrance, never turn back.

  • Tim

    nope

  • vanfanusa

    You have to be trolling us with this! I haven’t even read the post. I came straight to the comments.

  • Porn Star
  • Dave

    Say what now? Shouldn’t a performer of the year at least have a decent body of work for said year? Diesel is a good performer but doesn’t come close to best of the year.

  • Lady Macbeth
  • Chris Lawson
  • sans

    Diesel is my kind of man.
    Trashy
    Outspoken
    Gives no shit
    Roasts people
    Vulgar
    Drama
    What’s more to love from him?

    • ToxicBrew

      I love it when he remains quiet and doesn’t respond to every post with a hint of criticism with the words “You got slayed” Ugh! I need to go vomit.

  • DaveAtom

    No way.
    Well, since my man Hector de Silva is not here (I wonder why?), I think Tegan is by far the best of the nominees, he has the whole package!

  • Badbike

    Probably one of the saddest things as a fan of GOOD porn was his retirement announcement. Long time fan of his. Always had the sexist scenes no matter the director or editor in charge. His scenes always seemed unreal (I personally think porn should have a level of quality that seem almost impossible to reach because it is a fantasy after all). He is out and proud which is something that everyone screams for and I also personally love a table shaker cuz he brings bullshit to the light which is needed for it to end.

    He still escorts right? Never tried it before but fuck if he is ever available in my city I’d let him have these pale cakes.

  • Bradster

    Hottest – not even close
    Biggest nutjob – without a doubt.

  • SteadyNUnremitting

    Not a huge fan of his, but i respect his body of work. He might not be drop dead gorgeous, but he’s definitely iconic, and one of the last few gay porn titans.

  • ToxicBrew

    Stop it! lol

  • ToxicBrew
  • Maximus

    I love Diesel’s scathing comments, but I’ve never seen any of his porn.

    Excuse me while I go develop a scoring metric in order to choose between JJ, Tegan, and Carter.

    Dick Wash is beyond annoying at this point. He’s turned into the Azealia Banks of the porn industry and it’s hilarious to read the Twitter comments about him “returning back to porn.” So tired of her and her antics. Let’s hope he doesn’t have closet with dead chicken guts that need to be cleaned out

  • tjf1306

    Maybe is she could stay hard and didn’t smell like a farm animal

  • Steve

    I appreciate his candor.

  • Jason

    No

  • R.A.M.J

    HELL NO!!!!!

  • IdeasforSale

    No.

  • WyattTF
  • Sed

    Diesel is right now skull dragging Helix Studios for not hiring black twinks.
