EXCLUSIVE: BoyCrush Studio Owner Bryan Schwandt Admits To Having Sex With Model Who Accused Him Of Rape: “I Shouldn’t Have Slept With Him…It Wasn’t Very Professional”

Posted April 12, 2018 by with 34 comments

adebhIn November of last year, a trans YouTuber named Kadence Pinder (above) came forward with allegations that she had been raped by a gay porn studio owner during what she called a “casting session” with that studio. (At the time of the alleged rape, Pinder had not yet come out as a trans woman, and had not yet started transitioning.) Pinder’s story was published by GayStarNews, which did not print the name of the studio or the studio’s owner due to what they called “legal reasons.”  The alleged rape—which was preceded by the studio owner offering Pinder drugs— was described in graphic detail by Pinder and GayStarNews:

“He told me to turn around and just like do a sexy pose. So I turned around and that’s when I heard him pull down my underwear and he put his dick inside of me – and then he just started to go to town. He literally rammed it inside of me and started going. It was really painful, it hurt really bad. I wasn’t aroused, I wasn’t excited – it was so uncomfortable.”

At one stage he left Pinder unable to breathe and gagging as he forced himself on her. He called her a “slut” and “fucking bitch.” Pinder’s attacker came inside of her while fucking her bareback.

Despite GayStarNews not publishing the studio’s name, Pinder released a YouTube video two months prior to the GayStarNews article, and in that September 2017 video, she revealed that the porn studio was BoyCrush. This would mean that her alleged rapist was BoyCrush studio owner Bryan Schwandt, seen below (center) on set yesterday with models James Stirling and Austin Xanders:

DajnYpFU0AAR6FNKadence Pinder’s full YouTube video, which goes into many of the same details as the GayStarNews article, is over 15 minutes long, and here’s the part where Pinder identifies that the alleged rape happened when she was working for BoyCrush and studio owner Schwandt:

And, here’s the section of the video where Pinder recounts Schwandt offering her drugs, and then forcibly having sex with her:

Pinder’s story is making headlines again today after another model, Ethan Steele, came forward last weekend with new accusations against BoyCrush and Schwandt. Steele posted the below tweets detailing his experience with Schwandt:

ethan1 ethan2Str8UpGayPorn reached out to Schwandt for a response to Steele’s accusations that he performed “sexual favors” on him, and Schwandt replied that his use of the term “sexual favors” was “just a joke.” Schwandt went on to add that “Ethan is not attractive,” and that his complaint was likely written by “Holland House,” which is another porn studio where Steele now works. Schwandt/BoyCrush’s reply to Str8UpGayPorn, via Twitter direct message:

favors

Given the nature of Steele’s accusations, I went on to ask Schwandt about previous, similar accusations made against him, including the rape accusation from Pinder. In Schwandt’s reply to my question, which linked to Pinder’s video detailing the alleged rape, he admitted that “parts of [Pinder’s] story are true.” Schwandt also admitted, “I did sleep with him,” but he claimed that Pinder “offered that” before coming to the studio:

bc1Because there have been different models with different allegations against Schwandt, I asked him to confirm that he was talking about Kadence Pinder, and that it was Pinder whom he was admitting to having sex with. After claiming that Pinder was overweight, he again admits to having sex with Pinder, and says, “I shouldn’t have slept with him, but that’s all I did wrong”:

bc22Schwandt then told me he would be deleting all of the messages we sent to each other, because he didn’t want his daughter—who has access to the BoyCrush Twitter account—seeing the messages:

I continued questioning Bryan Schwandt today on his personal account, asking him if he had any response to the rape allegation, given that he had just admitted to having sex with Pinder earlier this week. According to Schwandt, the rape allegation against him is “not true,” and the sex he had with Pinder was “consentul” [sic]:

boycrush3

Whether or not Pinder’s accusation is true (and based on the latest, similar accusation from Ethan Steele, it might be reasonable for many to assume that it is), the owner of any company choosing to have what he views as “consensual” sex with his 18-year-old workers is unbelievably stupid, wrong, and unethical, and it only opens up that employer to being accused of doing something far worse. And although Schwandt claims he “reused the cards,” recording that sex on video without consent and the proper paperwork—which Pinder says she did not give and did not sign—is clearly illegal.

It might be 2018, but sleazy porn studio owners having sex—whether willingly or not—with their models is still tolerated by some in the porn industry, thanks in part to owners like Schwandt, who simply label their behavior as something that “wasn’t very professional.”

No performer is required or obligated to sleep with a studio owner in order to receive work or payment, and any studio owner (or anyone at any workplace who’s in a position of authority) making these kinds of demands—whether they’re explicit or implicit—of workers is committing a crime. If you’ve been a victim of Schwandt (or anyone on any porn set), contact your local authorities and/or a local rape crisis center.

  • FrenchBug

    Mentioning the supposed un-attractiveness of your purported victim as a defense against rape/sexual bullying accusations is a huge red flag for me as it sounds very very very familiar.

    • Scrapple

      This fucker looks like Jimmy Kimmel back when he was still trying to Win Ben Stein’s Money, and he’s saying someone else isn’t attractive? This is what happens when you get high off your own supply.

  • nick

    The picture on the front page, I thought she was a sex robot.

  • Scrapple

    Sooooo she didn’t look like her pictures and she was overweight. But you still fucked her. And taped it. Ethan is unattractive. But you still filmed with him. Your daughter has access to your gay twink fetish studio’s Twitter account.

    • McM.

      His daughter is probably in her twenties/thirties and is employed by the studio to handle social media and other operations.

      That in itself isn’t weird. What’s weird is Bryan Schwandt utilizing a place where family works to coerce tail from the talent.

      • Scrapple

        Nah, turning porn into a family affair is weird. Especially when that porn apparently caters to adults who have a teenager fetish.

        The other thing is more unethical and criminal than weird.

      • Zachary Sire

        That’s what I’ve been told–the daughter works for the studio in various ways.

        • Estelle

          The daughter does porn and posted a tweet about fake sexual harassment allegations.

          Also a lovely pic of her getting fucked with a PS4 game controller.

          • zit_remedy

            oh god, gross. and i *was* gonna settle in for a cosy, rainy night of playing dishonored 2 on ps4. instead i’ll boot up the pc for some good ol’ fallout 4, i guess. much less nauseating… :/

  • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

    Poor guys, the way those twinks are holding him he’s probably having orgies with them. No wonder so many of them are hooked on drugs.

    • Hereweare

      Yes, poor them. Being forced into that career choice. Those poor things should only get paid mega-bucks for having sex with their own personal fantasies.

      Although a model committing suicide is a genuine tragedy, please wake the fuck up with the rest of that bullshit.

      • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

        Porn isn’t a career. Doing porn for money shouldn’t involve having to fuck the grotesque owner. I’m aware of how many people use a position of power to make guys sleep with them. It’s a problem in all facets of entertainment.

        • nick

          “Doing porn for money shouldn’t involve having to fuck the grotesque owner” – said everyone who ever worked for Maverick Men

          • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

            The Maverick Men pair is doable. Not hot, but they are not repulsive like Bryan Schwandt, Jake Cruise and that guy that runs the halfway house site.

          • FrenchBug

            I concur with that. I will say, just because I want to point it out even if it is irrelevant, that Cocksuremen had some decent scenes and some great pairings. If he hadn’t insisted on getting involved and turning everyone off, JC could have created something pretty nice.
            The others VERY CLEARLY do not put any thought or care into the directing part and their porn is quite obviously an excuse to fuck guys hotter than they normally would score.
            Ethan Steele’s comment that Schwandt was too busy jerking off to properly film the scenes will not surprise anyone who tried to watch any Boycrush scene.

          • zit_remedy

            agreed. i’d do them, but then i’d also know without a doubt that, with maverick men, that’s part of the deal. it seems like kadence believed it would be a bona fide, professional audition with a producer!

            (and slamming the appearance of one’s rape-accusers? not a good look, scumbag!)

          • nick

            I think we will have to agree to disagree, the way the maverick men pair appear to treat their “trade” is a total turn off for me personally

          • FrenchBug

            Oh absolutely but I think Justin’s point is that, by looks alone, it is true that they are reasonably attractive, at least in comparison with the Jake Cruise or Daddy Mugs of the world.
            That their porn is vile crap, that they look like terrible fucks and that it all turns you off of them is absolutely fair and accurate but not mutually exclusive.

          • nick

            Fair point.

        • zit_remedy

          agreed!! so they say “no” – then what? no job, no chance, no career. i get that this is a very sexualized industry (obviously), but you still shouldn’t have to sleep with your gross boss to have a chance at a job!

          • McDonald’s and other similar establishments are always hiring sol the gay porn was my only job option excuse doesn’t work with me.

        • Seanumich

          The looks of the owner should not matter.
          Though there is a off distinction in porn on a lot of this stuff. Colby Chambers and Mickey Knox own a studio and has sex with their models. Brent Corrigan did it. Jason Sparks, Jake Cruise, Michael Lucas all have as well.
          It is very difficult to be in the porn indiustry and then claim sexual harrassment because sexual performance IS a BFOQ. It would be like saying you are filming a non-porn-movie and after hiring the actor he says he won’t kiss the other performer, then him claiming he is being sexually harrassed. A stripper can’t take a job as a stipper and then say she wants to get paid even though she doesnt want to take off any clothes.

  • Maximus

    Another disgusting piece of human garbage. Rapists are vile and depraved. They all deserve life in prison without the possibility of parole.

  • Hereweare

    This shit again.

    Some guy, who is really a woman, but not then, because he hadn’t said so yet
    Auditioned for porn, then “heard” the director pull down his underwear (because you would never feel that)
    And then started to have sex, which is so unexpected at a porn audition
    Then called him dirty names, which was so offensive because the cameras weren’t rolling

    I had to stop reading there, and move on to a more credible story, like a Trump tweet.

    • Francis Mastro

      When you get raped, you’ll tell me what’s credible or not! Idiot!!!!

      • zit_remedy

        thank you!!

    • James

      ROTFLOL, it made me smile

      • zit_remedy

        okay, so sex-by-coersion by a potential employer upon a potential employee makes you smile. good to know.

        • James

          LOL “employee” does she do windows?

        • Seanumich

          There isa bit of a distinction in porn that you are equating to other jobs. It can easily be argued that having sex isa BFOQ for porn. Imagine an actress goes to film a movie, the producer and director have her audition and say she needs to have a passionate kiss with Leo DiCaprio. Can Kate WInslett or any woman who auditioned for Titanic say they were sexually harrassed by being forced to kiss Leo? Does it change if the actor is less attractive, say Ernest Borgnine or Abe Vigoda?

  • Sed

    Bryan’s daughter also does straight porn under the name of Callie Klein.

  • Javier Smith

    I’m pretty sure that having sex as part of a job interview is sexual harassment regardless of whether it is consensual or not.

  • The fact that Pinder is smirking and seems to be almost laughing as she retells the incident in the videos seems rather odd to me. It does not show someone who was traumatized by the events, at least that is not how she comes across in the videos.

  • I can’t help but think of Brian Kocis when I read this story.
