Sean Cody’s 10 Biggest History-Making Moments

Posted April 14, 2017 by with 78 comments

sc hstoryIn 2001, an unknown director/producer and his San Diego-based amateur gay porn studio went online, changing gay porn forever. That studio, Sean Cody, redesigned the way gay porn was cast, filmed, edited, released, and viewed by consumers. From gay-for-pay “straight guys” having sex with other men for the first time, to the rise of internet porn, to the mainstreaming of bareback, and to creating simply the best gay porn scenes, Sean Cody led the industry for nearly 15 years, always one step ahead of their competitors (many of whom had been around years before the actual “Sean Cody” even thought of launching a studio). Sean Cody’s iconic trailblazing days are behind us now, but in honor of their legacy, here’s a look back at Sean Cody’s 10 Biggest History-Making Moments.

(Note: While some are mentioned here, this is not a list of the “best” Sean Cody scenes or models. For those types of lists, view the Top 73 Sean Cody Scenes or the Top 20 Sean Cody Models.)

sean-cody-allen-is-igor-kolomiyets10. Igor Kolomiyets
Str8Up’s story on fashion model Igor Kolomiyets becoming a Sean Cody model named Allen was published over three years ago, but his name still comes up on the most-searched list here every year, as he continues his modeling career. High profile fashion model and big-dicked gay porn star? Who says you can’t have it all.

9. The Twins: Jeff & John
It’s the one and only time Sean Cody featured siblings in the same gay porn scene, and while these hot as fuck real-life brothers didn’t go as far with each other as other gay porn twins (all they do is jerk off and cum next to each other on a couch), it was still a memorable moment, and something relatively (pun intended!) shocking for Sean Cody, back in 2008.

twins jessSide note: Uhhh, looking at Jeff and John now, they almost look like they could be related to current Sean Cody model Jess?

8. Mountain Getaway Orgy
Not just the best gay porn scene of 2013, and not just one of the best Sean Cody scenes ever, but one of the greatest gay porn orgies of all time. The 10-minute finale alone—in which gangbang bottom Bryce is pumped full of five consecutive creampies—is one of the best things ever captured on film. From casting to directing to editing, the production of Mountain Getaway Orgy is pure gay porn perfection.

Screen-Shot-2015-11-27-at-10.52.23-PM7. Brandon’s Bottoming Debut
On the flip side, “Brandon’s Bottoming Debut” is arguably the worst scene ever released by Sean Cody. Adding to the video’s overall awfulness (a limp-dicked Brandon practically falls asleep while the otherwise excellent Tanner lazily sticks the tip of his dick into Brandon’s butt) was the fact that the studio went into overdrive promoting and teasing the “bottoming debut” as a must-see event. Instead, the scene was obliterated by critics and left fans outraged, making it an epic flop.

146_026. “Gang Bang Girl
The notorious “Gang Bang Girl” is one of the few women to ever appear on Sean Cody (Tina was another female performer featured on the site, but I think that’s it), and she’s the only woman with her own model profile page on the site. Gang Bang Girl had a very brief Sean Cody career, starring in just one scene (a gang bang, obviously) in 2002. But, her impact lives on forever.

maxresdefault5. Sean on MTV’s True Life
A source inside Sean Cody once told me that they’d been approached by reality TV show producers all the time, asking for a peek inside the legendary studio. Mr. Cody smartly never gave in, keeping the allure of his models fully intact. But, when Mindgeek purchased Sean Cody in 2014, that changed. The PR and advertising departments were taken over by a corporate conglomerate, and MTV was allowed to film crew members and models for an episode of their ongoing “documentary” series, True Life.

That episode, “I’m A Gay-For-Pay Porn Star,” featured Sean Cody’s Sean (as well as Forrest), and was no doubt fun for MTV viewers who knew nothing about gay porn. But for fans of Sean Cody and haters of gay-for-pay models, it was a mess. Unless you’re deliberately trying to undermine your own brand, why put a model on TV to tell people that “fucking a guy is like fucking a watermelon”?

4. Bailey’s Fuck Buddy
“Bailey’s Fuck Buddy” has arguably gone down as one of the greatest (if not the greatest) Sean Cody scenes of all time, according to many longtime fans. As those fans have noted, the first-time fucking between straight performer Bailey and his real-life straight best friend from high school is intense, passionate, and best of all, 100% authentic. That high school BFF, Jess, only appeared in the one scene, and he never returned to the site again.

seancody_noel_suspended3. High School Student Noel
As unfair as what Noel had to go through at his Florida high school, a Sean Cody model making national news after not doing something illegal (see item #2 below) was at least a breath of fresh air. Luckily, the high school lifted Noel’s suspension (which was originally ordered after classmates told school administrators that Noel was a gay porn star) and he was allowed to finish his senior year without further interruption. Best of all? The big-dicked, versatile star returned to Sean Cody following the scandal and starred in one of the best scenes ever, when he and Curtis fucked each other simultaneously.

js22. Bad Boys: Jarek, Jason, Francisco, Brooks, et al.
In addition to recruiting hot models, Sean Cody is known for recruiting hot criminals. After hundreds of national news headlines involving extortion, theft, murder, and even naked, cocaine-fueled mental breakdowns in front of a Cracker Barrel, it’s clear that Sean Cody has a thing for bad boys. Eventually, there will probably be a post here ranking the Top 10 Sean Cody Models In Jail, but until then, revisit Brooks, Francisco, Robert, Marshall, and Addison’s crimes using the links. And, keep up with Str8Up’s exhaustive timeline of Jarec Wentworth’s extortion trial/conviction and appeal here.

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 4.06.47 PM1. “Brandon & Pierce Unwrapped” Ushers In New Era Of Bareback Gay Porn
While bareback gay porn was everywhere throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s, condom porn quickly became the new standard by the early 1990’s, in the wake of the AIDS epidemic. A handful of niche, underground studios started making bareback porn a decade or so later, but the majority of studios stuck to condoms. Then, on Christmas morning in 2011, everything changed when Sean Cody released “Brandon & Pierce: Unwrapped.

The studio made sure to point out both in the scene’s text description and the video itself that both Brandon and Pierce (a.k.a. Ryan Rose) underwent “strict testing protocols.” The text, of course, quickly pivots from STD talk and gets back to the hot bareback action, with Pierce admitting, “There was no friction at all. I could really feel him inside me!” The praise, outrage, and—most importantly—sales came in droves, and every other gay porn studio recognized that the game had been changed. Sean Cody made barebacking great again!

36Within a couple of years, most studios ditched their condoms, too, and headlines popped up with the same two words every time: “bareback debut!” Randy Blue, NextDoor, and several other studios wanting their piece of the bareback pie joined in, and brand new bareback studios like Bromo and Sketchy Sex came into the mix, too. While a handful of studios continue to succeed with condom porn today, the majority have now made the switch to raw.

To be sure, bareback gay porn would’ve undoubtedly come into the mainstream eventually on its own, but as usual, Sean Cody did it first.

For the record, while “Brandon & Pierce” was the studio’s first bareback scene, it’s not their best, and it’s not my personal fave. That would be 2015’s “Curtis & Randy” (trailer above), which happens to be the last flawless gay porn scene Sean Cody released. In over two years, they haven’t made anything as good.

    Sean Cody sucks at porn now, maybe they should focus on getting a A&E or Lifetime tv show about the behind the scenes drama involving the FBI. Or they can quit doing the porn and just do an entire 3 seasons of “Where Are They Now?” Brandon can host and travel to various prisons in Florida to interview past Sean Cody models.

    Or we can just give Sean Cody a Pepsi and hope for the best.

            Whenever I hear people say this with all seriousness, I put on my most passive aggressive voice to remind them that the award was viewers’ choice, and if they felt she should have won they should have voted. But I guess you could say that to a lot of people nowadays.

            Now while I love Bey’s music I know never to take my side-eye off her. Not after all that I’ve observed during the DC era. So any time the hive misses out on some honey, I’m lowkey happy. The buzzing makes for a fabulous white noise machine come bedtime.

  • Sebastian S

    This us a great oral (and anal) history of SC. It’s had a great run. I remember being do enamored with the likes of Patrick, Billy

  • pangelboy

    The impact SC has made on the industry is unparalleled. Sooner or later James Franco is going to make a movie about the studio’s history. The only way I’ll watch it is if Dave Franco stars and does some method acting.

    • sxg

      He’d be perfect for it. It’s not like he hasn’t had any practice for such a role.

        No, no man should have that much power. Let go of these destructive feelings.
        *deep breath*
        Must remain calm. He’s celebrating a culture. That’s it; that’s all it is. Just stay positive and look on the bright side. Which is…

          Hmmmm…… Well, lets bait him! See if he reacts or goes into full panic mode and starts posting here.

          Here goes:

          James! If you’re reading this, I’m friends with some of the faculty at Columbia. Funny thing is, they don’t recall ever reading your MFA thesis… It’s like you just enrolled in a couple classes and collected committee signatures…Balls in your court, come at me bitch.

        I’m sure he’s trolling for some good ol’ gay cultural appropriation at the moment. Wouldn’t surprise me.

          I’m waiting for him to come out as gay black woman.

          • Marik Ishtar

            No no no, if he did that he would give up several privileges. Better for him to give a long speech about his internal energy is a prism of ethnicity and how intellectually he feels embraced by all cultures. He will be on the cover of US Weekly wearing a dashiki, turban, and authentic Native American moccasins with the caption “Child Of Earth.”

          • sanfv

            In that same scene, he’ll be handing a can of Pepsi to ISIS and the victims of police brutality. A two birds- one stone kinda thing.

          • Scrapple

            “Prism of Ethnicity.”

            Clocked. Stolen. Soon to be stenciled on an off-the-shoulder sweatshirt for a Flashdance costume. Now I’m off to continue my search for the perfect Jennifer Beals wig. It has been torture scouring the Earth for a curly Black Irish lacefront.

          • pangelboy

            Haven’t gay black women suffered enough?

            As an aside, he really has all the downsides of the G4P phenomenon (a huge cock tease, faux-sexuality), but none of the upsides (i.e. a dick in his ass/mouth). Let the straight white men keep ’em.

  • JCub

    Brandon & Pierce isn’t actually their first bareback scene. Sean Cody himself fucked this guy named Nick in one of the very, very early videos that have since been removed from the site. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/90ccc21aaf33d41bee9d32796e0c3aa63637d88fed32d7a9afe4789ed26139ed.jpg

    • Zachary Sire

      I remember that scene but don’t think it was bb? Will have to go back onto an old computer where it’s stored.

      • JCub

        I could almost swear that it was. It was kind of an impromptu thing where the model seduced him. That said, I can’t find my copy right now, so I might be wrong. That picture is pretty much all I can find online.

      • McM.

        The fucking is bareback, but I don’t think of it in the same category of planned and promoted bb scenes. It was something Sean Cody (the director) did on the spur of the moment; at 9m49s there’s a bumber that says “I just couldn’t resist…”

        If your old SC vids are in order, before “Nick” was removed form the site it’s video id was “0002” or “2”. The video before “Michael Brandon (vid 1)” and the one shortly after was “Michael Brandon’s Sex Party (vid 4)”, and presumably Nick and Lance (vid 3) were the hosts.

        • DaveAtom

          Oh Michael Brandon. I miss him and that scene was HOT!

        • sxg

          Wait, THE Michael Brandon did some SC scenes??? Well that’s surprising that I didn’t hear about this sooner.

    • sxg

      Is that Sean Cody himself in that pic?

  • Marik Ishtar

    As I look at the list and remember Sean Cody, it brings me back to a time in my youth. All those straight men consummating brought a tear to my eye as I saw so many parallels between them and my experiences. It touched into my very soul and I believe their expression on film is what womanhood is all about. The kindness of every thrust and and the harmony of each cream pie made me feel at home in a world alone for a girl with a dream. These awe inspiring actions is what gave me the conviction to give myself to performance art. If it were not for these brave men throwing away their ambitions, I would have stayed in solitude never embracing the gentle nature of a smile. Even now when sing I recollect how each man moaned with exuberant breath and salute them with all hymns of my spirit. I so wished to thank them during my Academy Awards speech, but alas, felt shy. How could a girl standing before an audience asking them to like her, say that she owed her life to a union of two names? Looking back, I admit that fear is not what got me this far and to never let it happen again.

    Thank you both Sean and Cody for evolving me into the Goddess I am today.
    Lots of Love,
    Anne Hathaway

    “When my Michael explained to me that the reason he had spent so much
    time researching Sean Cody online was because it is the largest
    employer of underemployed youths in North America and he wanted to be
    sure to support them every hour he has available I was proud of the man I
    call my husband. After he gets through with each online video
    conference, he holds privately in his office, he comes out unrestrained
    and smiling. He says he gets whet watching those young men sweat from
    good back work. I asked him why we don’t invite them to The White House
    as special guests and show the public how involved you are with this
    program. He clarified that because most of the youths have criminal
    pasts the public may not be as understanding as he is. I appreciated his
    sincerity and encouraged him to be the man theses boys need in their
    lives. He smiled at me and admitted that he was already planning on
    spending some one-on-one time with them at least twice a month.Thank You again Sean Cody for encouraging my husband to be the man I always knew he was.”

    What prompted this nostalgia-fest, Zach?

    • Zachary Sire

      The studio is basically dead and no longer capable of releasing good scenes, so consider this a sort of eulogy.

      Tonight’s scene, for example, is another mess. I think they think they fixed their 4k camera debacle by just putting an Earlybird Instgram filter on everything. Really sad. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0b082665ac98475b772ec9c04ff5a7e262e6d217bab06f5b1ad4344f60fe5275.png

        We’re having a funeral, and you’re only just telling me now?! How am I supposed to get my “We Are Gathered Here Today to Remember” realness look together with so little advance notice?!

      • kctx

        Sadly, your first sentence is mostly true. I think the latest scene in one of the best in memor, that is how far SC has fallen. I hope it is the beginning of an improvement, but it still can’t compare to pre 2015 scenes.

  • R.A.M.J

    I still have the Gang Bang girl scene I downloaded off of kazaa (wow) I had know Idea that was a sean cody scene. didn’t care it was a hot chick getting pounded by 5 hot guys. Bi porn heaven.

  • moondoggy

    I buy most of this list, but for me, either Mitch’s scenes with Chaosmen or Dawson Fucks Cody counts as ushering in the bb porn era for me. Granted there was a LONG gap between Dawson’s first raw scene and his second, so I see what’s wrong with that suggestion. But it was in heavy rotation for me that entire time. Chaosmen is the one I would argue for more because once they started doing raw scenes, they kept doing them. And I’m just not willing to give Brandon and Pierce more credit than Eli, Nash, and Long Dong Vander.

    • Joey

      Doesn’t CF’s raw release of Lucas and Dawson Down Under predate the Pierce and Brandon scene? Because that was the one that I remember making waves as a bareback release of a studio previously condom-only. Even tho very few people actually had it before it leaked.

      • Zachary Sire

        It was like a year prior, so technically, yes. But, that was a special scene released on DVD only, not on Corbin Fisher’s site. (It’s probably on the CF site by now, of course.)

  • Jason Lord
  • Hunter O’Porn

    Wasn’t the first bareback scene the one with SeanCody himself? It’s no longer online but I saw a clip of Sean fucking a video on Tumblr. He was kind of hot.

    • Matt

      I remember that!

  • WhimsyCotton

    Kind of sad. The only reason I check for them is because of the occasional Lane and Blake scene. When they decide to leave I can’t see myself bothering with SC anymore. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d283f1bb09f2f09978ca4700b36ae22612c14bb7028a56ab6fddae6237c30b98.gif

  • W Murphy

    Personally, I think Sean Cody ruined gay porn. Their scenes always looked so bland and amateurish, other than the few occasions they took the action outside, everything was uninspired. So many studios have copied their “aesthetic” for the worst. I guess part of my porn fantasy is watching hot guys fucking in great locations. It was quite boring to watch these guys fuck in the same way and in the same scuzzy looking room again and again. Many studios are following this same formula and they think because it’s “bareback” it will sell.

  • Scrapple

    I remember Gang Bang girl! And Bewigged Tina! And that no name who fucked Andrew. Ladies, thanks for the mammaries memories.

    At one point “Bailey” was friends with Patrick Bateman. I remember them traveling out of the country for a vacation. Naturally everyone assumed it was a hooker/drug vacation.

    I recall one of those twins being very infatuated with his bro’s penis. Almost like he wanted to reach out and grab it.

    Didn’t at least two models get arrested for some sort of sex crime? I remember something about the one guy doing scenes after he had been arrested and put on the registry. Not Dennis.

    This is like opening a whore’s time capsule and reliving all the funny, hot and tragically sad moments. And then you cry at the end when you realize your whorefriend is dead and is never coming back.

    Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the holes I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human.

    The writer could be more accurate and say In over two years, they haven’t made anything good !
    SC has become a mess since the purchase by MG.

  • Jon

    I still have never gotten the actual story on that scene?

    Was it actual porn i.e. a video that was shot for a site? Or was it homemade porn that got leaked?

    • moondoggy

      No one knows the full story! You would think omen of them would have come out for their fifteen minutes of fame but as far as I know, they haven’t. My eBay seller actually spelled “no condum” with a U, so you can imagine how little I was expecting when I bought the tape. But I figured it didn’t cost any more than an issue of Advocate Men, so it was worth a gamble. I could not BELIEVE how hot that’s video was, though the production values on most of it were challenging. It’s a pretty safe bet this was not a professional scene. Lots of websites identified them as brothers, but no one offered any proof, and it seemed obvious to me that was just someone’s bullshit fantasy. They looked to me like a normal couple with a jarring amount of sex appeal and chemistry, especially when they got a little angry with each other midfuck.

    • Duder

      That old coot tapped Sebastian, Liev, Johnny R and Jamie? Shit, I’m fucking jealous…

  • zmkw

    Great list, but I’m pretty sure Bel Ami was releasing bareback scenes on its site in 2010, at least a year or so before SC.
