Mid-Year Report: Here Are The Most-Searched Gay Porn Stars Of 2017

Posted June 30, 2017 by with 54 comments

2017 gay pornAs we do every June, it’s time to check in on the most-searched gay porn stars, with Str8UpGayPorn’s biannual list of the Top 50 Most-Searched Gay Porn Stars, for the first half of 2017.

This list is based on internal stats and Google analytics showing which gay porn star names generated the most page views on Str8UpGayPorn, as referred by search engines. This list is one reliable measurement of popular online searches, but remember that other sites doing their own rankings should have slightly varying results, depending on the gay porn stars and news stories they regularly cover.

Several retired gay porn stars continue to rank high on the list, proving that their hotness (or, in a few cases, news of their arrests) lives on forever. And, congratulations to Johnny Rapid and Cliff Jensen, each of whom had fallen down the list at the end of the last year, but have now jumped back into the top 10.

At the end of 2016, Carter Dane ranked #1 on this list (click here to view 2016’s top 100 gay porn stars). Was the Str8UpGayPorn Award-winner of Best Performer able to hold onto the crown, or did another gay porn star take the top spot? Find out below.

Here are the Top 50 Most-Searched Gay Porn Stars for the first half of 2017. (Click any linked name to watch one of that gay porn star’s movie clips.)

Note: At #3 and #2, Alex and Carter have flip-flopped spots with each other over the last year. And, coincidentally, they are a real-life couple!

Finally, coming in at #1…

bm34Title-in-Notes-Corbin-Colby-and-Blake-Mitchell-049-1024x683bmd1bm351. Blake Mitchell

For the first time in over a year, there is obviously a new number one: Blake Mitchell. He’s the most-searched performer of 2017 so far, and he’s made the largest leap of any performer, having skyrocketed from #29 on the previous list to #1 today.

 

  • AbsolutelyFabulous

    Brooks having appeared on this list despite not being in a scene in years proves how absolutely I-C-O-N-I-C he is.

    • John

      He is one of the hottest guys ever in porn and he breeds internally with his monster cock in almost every seen. He was so gorgeous with his endlessly long lean body that goes with his almost 10″ cock. I was so disappointed that he only did maybe 4 or 5 scenes. I think his cock was too big for most people to take. Colt Rivers said that it hurt but he endured it for what he imagined would be thee hotness of the end product.

      • Zachary Sire

        I agree. He’s one of the best ever, and one of my all-time faves. And only 5 videos (including his solo)!

    • J.D.

      All his scenes at SC are iconic and left all the other boys there SHAKING. Shame that he never get to perform with Peter because the two of them would’ve shattered the industry.

    • Sebastian S

      Brooks was amazing. The interesting thing about guys like him on this list is that it must be his existing fans searching for him over and over. I’d think that most would not know him by name like “Austin Wilde” for example.

  • Sebastian S

    How is Leo Giamani still so high? He was hot to look at years ago but was never an iconic performer.

  • My gawd. I shot Leo Giamani’s first bottoming scene nearly a decade ago (before anyone knew his name). Wow. It’s a good list. Surprised to see Kris Evans so low position. Austin Wilde is still one of my fantasy guys. So sexy.

  • nbtx27

    Wow, of the Top 50, I only know of and like Stu and Noel, 2 great guys from the past top site Sean Cody, (Unfortunately, it’s now a very poor site.)

  • John

    The only reason I can figure out why Jack Hunter, the sex god, is not higher on the list is that he is gay and most people like gay for pay. Maybe the fact that he is not higher accounts for why so little porn really inspires me today.

    • Tim

      same with JJ Knight. I mean, really?

      Then again, Alex Mecum and Carter Dane are 2 and 3, and they are a couple. so you never know.

    • Tktai Kamilla

      I agree with you, so I do not agree with the number one of the list. Blake Mitchell is fine, but for guys who like twinks, most gay men on the internet are looking for real MEN that are usually G4P. Like Sean Cody or Corbin.

  • John

    Four of the top eight are Men. Am I the only person who doesn’t watch their vanilla condom offerings that are dominating the ads for porn on the net.

  • planetwingnuttia

    Interesting Colby Keller’s not in this list unless i missed him…that Trump vote def hurt him…BIGLY.

    • a b

      Sad!

  • DumDumBonerMaker

    (comment self-removed by commenter)

  • Tim

    my three favorite active porn stars are 42, 38 and unranked (Wesley Woods). I guess that says something about my tastes vis a vis everyone else.

    • dqh257

      Wesley Woods is fine….. agree~!

      • Tim

        the thing with all my favs, that I can tell, and this is over all time, is that they are all or almost all gay or bi and decent human beings as well as being sexy. there are a couple of straight SC models and Phenix Saint that aren’t gay as such, but they are probably not in my top 10. So, like many other commenters, I think that says something of my tastes. we really should have a discussion post on this site at some point where people can list their favorites or something in an open poll forum and compare, Zach.

  • Pertinax

    Hard to believe, because if you compare #1 with Carter Dane, Alex Mecum, Bruce Backham, Jack Hunter, Paddy O’Brian, Will Winkle, Sen Zevran and others in this list its easy to realise that the guy is absolutely ” basic ” and it keeps you thinking that there are a bunch of teens that identifies his figure ( young and cute ” perv – nerd ” next door ) with theirs or worst, grown men with a penchant for ” twink – twunks “: Put a pair of glasses on a schlong and you’ll have this Blake Mitchell. Add to this the allure of a new toy … And to think that Armanda Jizzo and Johnny are in this list too…

    • Sebastian S

      I’m surprised because I had no idea Blake Mitchell was that overall popular, but I’m not surprised that his teen/twink looks are high up. Rapid and Corrigan have been among the most popular porn stars of all time because of that youth appeal that many men love. (Give me #2-3, and Beckham any day).

      • Alison Smith

        I think just cos you’re the most searched on this site doesn’t mean you’re the most popular – lots of people maybe didn’t know who he is and had to search for info! I prefer my porn stars to look like men and not college geeks but I know who Blake is from the constant Helix promo on here so I’m surprised he was still searched so much – I don’t take this kind of article seriously though!

  • Dreadmau5

    Johnny Rapid is still a thing?

    • nick

      he’s a rough tough bad boy man stud now apparently

      • Pertinax

        He’s a rough tough bad boy man stud with an iron bunghole.

    • doodlebug

      Disappear for 7 months and I guess some people come looking for you.

  • Joleil Ashwind

    Thankfully this is just for the year 2017 and not for all time

    • nick

      “of all time” would be a totally different list and probably none of these guys would be in it

  • Zavier

    Brodie from Sean Cody isnt on this list ?….wow

    • Green4clover

      Brodie is my fave! Hasn’t come out with any new scenes so he maybe done 😢

      • Zavier

        He’s so goddamn cute i almost can’t stand it. And hes an amazing love maker. I saw him on the gay4pay porn doctumentary by Charlie David… Brodie is definitely a hyper-masculine douche. but he sure is nice to look at.

        • Green4clover

          What is this documentary called? Seems like I should watch it.

        • sxg

          Yes please do share us the title of the documentary!

  • Villaintina

    Which scene is that Jarec Wentworth gif in?

  • Pertinax

    Johnny has such a bad concept with me that every time I see a photo of him it seems as if a stench was coming from it. The same occurs with Armanda Jizzo whose imaginary fedentine seems to poison the pic.

  • Eric from Sweden

    Only three Bel Ami models on this list? And only one them among the top 5? :(
    But I haven’t seen any of Blake Mitchell’s scenes, so maybe I shouldn’t say anything.

    • Sebastian S

      Makes since to me. I’d imagine more people would casually search for “Bel Ami” than Andrei Karenin or Hoyt.

  • Sed

    Blake hasn’t been in a scene for awhile and he’s very popular. So it makes sense that he would be more searched for than he was in the past. Most searched for does not necessarily mean most popular. Not to take anything away from Blake. He’s great.

  • beefcupcake

    People are just so boring…

  • AJ’s Black Widow

    It sucks that Sebastian Kross retired, he was definantly one of my favorites.

  • Maximus

    Dear goddess. Armond Rizzo is going to need a sphincter transplant pretty soon.

    I’m going to pretend that Carter Dane stayed at #1. In fact, this whole article probably should have just been all about Carter. He’s dreamy.

  • Jbj

    Whoa…didn’t know Alex mecum and Carter Dane are a couple…soooo much hotness! 😍

  • hyperkind

    Howsabout the 3 people I am personally glad are NOT on this list: Paul Canon, Damien Kyle, and Vadim Black. After their PR train wrecks (whether it was their “preferences” or other dumbass comments), it’s good to know people are giving them something of the cold shoulder.

  • Michael Regan

    I’ve not searched for anyone on this list, I’ve looked up the happenings of Zeb Atlas, Vince Ferelli, Carlo Masi and Matthew Rush to see how he’s doing after his dropped conviction

  • EatingRaoul

    Is it possible that Cody Cummings spends his days doing nothing except googling himself? Otherwise, WTF?

    • Pertinax

      It was reported that he has a large women’s fan club whose members even lost their time doing collages with his pics …

  • The Porn Emperor

    There’s a difference between bi-annual and semi-annual, you know.
    Oh wait–I guess you DON’T know.

  • Hari Kalyan

    so does this just mean the porn star with the most articles that mention their name on this site?

  • Baradude

    Armond honey noooooo your insides aren’t supposed to be on the outside! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/86cf80b9b84d3d6e34ac960128b7044cdc5ad140ec15a43e436fbe8a20869bf5.jpg
