That Gay Porn Star Has Covered Up His Racist Confederate Flag Tattoo

Posted March 21, 2018 by with 99 comments

confedAfter appearing in several gay porn scenes over the last two months for multiple gay porn studios (who either didn’t notice or didn’t have a problem with putting a racist symbol on display in their product), performer Brian Michaels has covered up the racist Confederate Flag tattoo on his hand by having another tattoo drawn over it. Good:

Someone who purposefully had a racist and hateful symbol permanently painted onto his body complaining about being “bashed” and receiving “hate and judgemental comments” over that very hateful symbol is the kind of unintentional irony that only a gay-for-pay ex-convict could deliver, so I’m going to have to save my sympathy for someone else. Thanks.

Trying to spin condemnation of the racist Confederate Flag tattoo as an unfair “attack” on Brian Michaels—as Michaels and his delusional supporters have done—is completely absurd and completely misses the point, and it’s part of the reason why racism in gay porn is allowed to thrive. As pointed out multiple times here, the question over Brian Michaels’ racist tattoo was never about whether or not Brian Michaels was a racist (there are, unfortunately, many racist performers working in porn who don’t have any racist symbols tattooed on their body, so even if Brian Michaels were a racist, this would be nothing new for the porn industry)—the question was why multiple studios were choosing to make a racist symbol part of their entertainment. People with racist tattoos that perpetuate and normalize racist imagery don’t belong in media, and racist symbols like the Confederate Flag don’t belong on display in porn—or on display anywhere.

Everyone who spoke out against the studios and Brian Michaels’ racist Confederate Flag tattoo can be glad that their speaking out led to the removal of the hateful symbol. If no one had called it out (and Michaels has been receiving questions about it for months on social media—long before it was brought up here), he might not have ever had it removed, and clueless studios would be more prone to make the same offensive mistake again. So (and it’s ludicrous to even have to say this), calling out racism loudly and directly is exactly the right thing to do, and we should all be ready to do it again the next time it inevitably happens.

    if he’s really a changed men, then i look forward to his bottoming scene with a black top!

      you can fuck black dudes and still be racist

      • c_find

        Misogynist fuck women. Never got the whole I fuck [insert ethnicity] so I can’t be racist. Ethnic fetishization is a form of racism.

      • Entropyguy

        Exactly. *Milo* uses his preference for “BBC” as a defense against charges of racism.

  • italianboi69

    Hi Brian – thats great u got your tattoo removed, we appreciate the effort. id just like to encourage u to have more ownership of your mistakes. i get it, admitting u hurt people is hard and it sucks but it goes a long way in helping people who struggle with being discriminated against. being a white man affords you a lot of privilege which is why not many people have called you out in the past for having a racist tattoo. thanks again

  • Tim

    look, give the guy a chance. we should stand up against the symbols, sure. and Zach’s point is valid. but now that he has bothered to get the tattoo removed, enjoy or not his scenes based upon the quality of them as such unless and until he does or says something else that deserves censure.

    • Zachary Sire

      Again, as pointed out multiple times here,
      the question over Brian Michaels’ racist tattoo was never about whether
      or not Brian Michaels was a racist (there are, unfortunately, many
      racist performers working in porn who don’t have any racist symbols
      tattooed on their body, so even if Brian Michaels were a racist, this
      would be nothing new for the porn industry)—the question was why
      multiple studios were choosing to make a racist symbol part of their
      entertainment. People with racist tattoos that perpetuate and normalize
      racist imagery don’t belong in media, and racist symbols like the
      Confederate Flag don’t belong on display in porn—or on display anywhere.

      • Tim

        I don’t disagree with you Zach. I just think things like this give the rest of us regular joes a chance to actually be a bit better than the guys and institutions that make such dumb moves. It can be both true that the Confederate flag is a racist and abhorrent symbol and that he never should have got work with it displayed and that, having taken a concrete step to fix the problem, under pressure or not, that it does us all a bit of good as humans to give the guy and the studios that hire him the benefit of the doubt going forward, again, barring some other sign that there is something deeper going on here.

        In other words, will I watch the scenes where he has the Confederate flag tattoo? no. do I think getting it was ever justified? no. But sure, if his work going forward is good and he doesn’t go on some racist twitter diatribe or the like, then sure I’ll enjoy his work going forward. people grow and change and make stupid choices. those can and do have consequences, but I tend to the side of mercy and leniency on such things. far better to actually keep pressuring the studios to hire more models of color, to do more interracial scenes without fetishizing that aspect all the time, and to keep calling out the actual bigots

        • Devin

          Why should the studios that hire him give him the benefit of the doubt? I work in corporate America and if I walked into an interview with a racist tattoo visible anywhere on my body I’m sure I would be shown the door or not called back. Why does this not apply in the Gay Porn Industry where it is actually filmed to be put on display for public viewing? Like, what? Huh???? Smh

          • Tim

            if you had it presently, sure. If you had something that had once been that but you felt enough shame and/or pressure to undo it? then it becomes a non-factor. at least in my mind. I tend to think we should let a person’s history become history unless and until it resurfaces to the present.

          • Edward

            Not unless you walked into the Westboro Baptist Church, the White House, Trump University, shall I go on…

  • Targareyn

    Honestly, as an African-American I have zero tolerance for intolerance. However, if he is genuinely sorry and attempting to move on with his life absent bigotry then I say let him be. Racists/bigots can and have reformed. It’s possible. I give him some credit for having the tattoo removed, because if we’re being honest with ourselves it’s not like that tattoo would’ve prevented him from getting work in this industry. I mean with all of the MAGA themed content out there it might have helped him thrive to keep (regurgitates).

    • Zachary Sire

      Once again, as pointed out multiple times here, the question over Brian Michaels’ racist tattoo was never about whether or not Brian Michaels was a racist (there are, unfortunately, many racist performers working in porn who don’t have any racist symbols tattooed on their body, so even if Brian Michaels were a racist, this would be nothing new for the porn industry) or whether or not he’s sorry now—the question was why multiple studios were choosing to make a racist symbol part of their entertainment. People with racist tattoos that perpetuate and normalize racist imagery don’t belong in media, and racist symbols like the Confederate Flag don’t belong on display in porn—or on display anywhere.

      • Nordschleife

        Zach thank you for simply replying with the same verbiage in the article itself in both instances. It makes no difference if he is racist or a reformed racist or if people forgive him or not. As you stated, I place blame on the studios and only see all this back and forth from fellow commentaries as an emotional response and not sticking to the facts.

    • Izzy

      Sunken Place…

      • Targareyn

        Sunken Place? Why, because I said he might have reformed and if so then should be allowed to move on? I don’t support his work, nor had I even heard of him before this blog brought him to my attention. You say sunken place, but HENNY I don’t think you know what that fuck that means.

    • Devin

      One of my black friends told me that Black people are very forgiving. She didn’t lie. I’m over here looking at your comment like wtf is wrong with you? First of all he didn’t have his tattoo removed. He had it covered. There’s a difference! The tattoo is still there and that is symbolic to me because I feel like once a bigot always a bigot. So, the tattoo is still there and he’s still a scumbag. You can’t erase the harm you’ve done to people. It can’t be undone. Rape someone once and you are a rapist. Kill someone once and you’re a murderer. Get it? It’s easy to try to sweep shit under the rug when you’re not directly affected by it, but if it was your mom who he spat on and called a Nigger bitch during his “dark time” I bet you’d be singing a different tune. You wouldn’t be so quick to “let him be” as you say. I’m sorry to use the N word, but I think people need to get real here. I hope Zach doesn’t remove my comment. I am really sorry and don’t want to offend anyone, but I’m all about putting things into perspective quickly instead of beating around the bush waiting for people to come to their senses.

      The porn studios also need to be addressed and I see Zach having to break it down for you guys over and over like you guys just don’t get it and it’s not that hard to get Lol

      • Xzamilloh

        That is such static narrow-minded bullshit, and I wanted to avoid this but after reading your nonsense and thinking YOU can tell a black person something is wrong with them because you think having a black friend gives you the green light? Let me tell you something: Racism is a mentality that is nothing like rape or murder because those are ACTIONS. A racist can be driven to murder or rape because of their racism, but one can easily overcome such ignorant held beliefs with education, empathy and general rationality. You can’t unrape someone or unmurder them but you can change your beliefs. That’s like saying I as an atheist am always a Christian because I was once a Christian. I am so damn tired of you white fucking liberals acting like you have to be double woke and speak to us as black people like retarded little monkeys who have no autonomy and need to be pitied ad nauseum because you feel the need to impose your white guilt on the rest of us.

        Don’t you ever fix your mouth to tell a black person how they should respond as if we’re a monolith, and fuck your black homegirl while you’re at it because the bitch doesn’t speak for anyone but herself!!

        • Devin

          We will have to simply agree to disagree. I’m not going to play a game of semantics with you. I don’t care if the word Racism isn’t an action. You want to play a game of nouns vs. verbs and I’m not going to play with you. I’m going to focus on important issues. I knew that some would be triggered by my comment and lose focus. Think what you want. Forgive racist people if you want. Sleep with them if you want. That’s your business, but I’m still going to call it out! I’m sorry about the way you feel. One thing I won’t allow you to do is silence me, though. I never told anyone how they should respond, either. Oh, and my “black homegirl” is so beautiful inside and out. She’s super intelligent and respectful. I don’t know why you would say “fuck your black homegirl.”

          • Xzamilloh

            You mean you’re not going to acknowledge the flawed logic in your narrow minded view of the world. Who wants to sleep with Brian Michaels? Who said that? I didn’t… T didn’t… so is this your subtle way of saying I’m cooning for white dick? You’re on a porn blog talking about “focusing on important issues”… bitch, please. We’re here to see hot dudes get fucked in previews and gifs, and kiki in the comment section… you can literally go anywhere else if your focus is “important issues” (no offense, Zach, because you do have political info on here)

            “Oh, and my ‘black homegirl’ is so beautiful inside and out. She’s super intelligent and respectful. I don’t know why you would say “fuck your black homegirl.'”

            I shouldn’t have said that, because I don’t even know if this mythical black homegirl even exists, and even if she does, she’s not the one twisting her words into a negative light, you are. It’s not about being “forgiving”, it’s about choosing your battles, and frankly, I don’t need non-black people telling other black people that something is wrong with them for not immediately wanting blood.

          • Devin

            Actually, this is not just a porn blog and if you’ve been on other porn blogs you would know that this site is different. Zach doesn’t only post porn video updates. He posts non-porn related updates on the homepage as well. He also provides his own views about important things going on in the porn industry and if you’ve been around a while or paid attention you can tell what sort of things he feels strongly about. I’ve been following Zach since before Str8UpGayPorn even existed. Anyway, important issues come up anywhere and everywhere. We discuss them. We jerk off. We fuck. End of story.

          • Xzamilloh

            Hence the use of the parentheses statement, but way to ignore everything else, you disingenuous cretin, just to go off on an ass kissing tangent.

            Zach, I would never discount what you do, because I’ve seen countless other gay blogs and sites referencing you so you obviously know your shit, so I’ll just leave this story alone.

          • Devin

            Parentheses don’t matter. You told me I can go elsewhere to focus on important issues. Why can’t I stay right here and focus on the important issue currently being discussed by many?

          • Xzamilloh

            Well, since you suddenly feel like responding, why don’t you answer how one cannot stop being a racist because like a murderer is always a murderer, a racist is always a racist?

          • Devin

            Yes. Just like a crackhead is ALWAYS a crackhead! Ask Judge Mathis

          • Xzamilloh

            Just as I thought. Like I said, don’t fix your mouth to ever tell a black person how they should feel or that something is wrong with them, when you can’t even explain your own piss poor logic. So NOW it’s comparing beliefs to addiction and recovery? You have nothing

          • Devin

            At this point I’m having fun with you. Most people laugh at that Judge Mathis reference. You must be uncrackable

          • Xzamilloh

            Most people can back up what they say… and since you can’t, we’re done here

            And crack is nothing to joke about… Whitney has been sober for over 6 years.

            This is better than Lipton.

          • Scrapple

            And Laura Bush killed someone with her car. As did Matthew Broderick. Perfectly good White examples you could’ve used. But instead you chose to throw out an example about Judge Mathis. A Black man who used to be a drug addict. To respond to an issue about racism with another Black man. After already presenting your Black friend as the ambassador and spokesperson for all Black people. And after you saw fit to drop a fully spelled racial slur into casual conversation.

            I’m not sure what you thought you were trying to prove, but you’ve proved something else. You are definitely not the person who should be schooling anyone on race relations. Everything about your original post was fucked up. Your responses are fucked up. You’ve shown your ass and that ass has a virtual Confederate Flag. In many ways you’re worse than Brian. Because at least he’s not attacking someone else for being racist while slinging disgusting slurs, perpetuating an idea of the “Black Hive Mind” and waiting for an opportunity to throw one Black person’s troubled past into the face of another Black person. Get your life all the way together before you start telling other people where their lives went wrong.

            And your attitude is why we have people like the trumps in the White House

            the attitude of
            “Well he didn’t call me a nigger or faggot to my face and he doesn’t act or say hes in the KKK
            so he might not be all bad

            “well he said the(falsely accused ) central park five should be hanged but he really didn’t mean it”

          • Xzamilloh

            No, the electoral college is why we have the Trumps in the White House, coupled with Hillary managing to shoot herself in the foot at every turn and lose a presidency that was practically gift wrapped for her.

            Who are you arguing with? What are these “n*gger/ f*ggot” strawmen you’re throwing out?

            “Racism is an action.” Is that why it’s listed as a noun and not a verb? Oh, wait… no that’s wrong. Racism is a mentality that can drive actions. By the way, Trump held on to that stupid belief that the Central Park Five were guilty even after it was proven that they weren’t, so I’m not sure what you’re getting at by bringing that up… other than you’re stupid and think I’m a Trumper or some shit

You do it by keeping secrets and stepping on people to get to the top

      • Targareyn

        “I’m really sorry and don’t want to offend anyone, BUT”…you know I once read somewhere that everything someone says before the word but is bullshit, and how they actually feel is said thereafter. You said you don’t wanna wait for me to “come to my senses?” Well I would prefer that you first gain some semblance of basic reasoning because comparing some of the most horrific acts known to mankind (rape, murder), to an irrational form of bigotry (racism) is nothing short of asinine. Unless a racist/bigot has performed a horrific act like murder because of their bigotry, then there is no reason to compare the two whatsoever. “Rape someone once and you are a rapist. Kill someone and you’re a murderer. Get it?” Oh no I get it. I get, as the user Xzamilloh already pointed out, that you decided to hop up on your fucking soap box and to teach my black ass about how I should feel, because apparently I don’t know any better. Racism, and any other form of bigotry, is not inherent to anyone. You’re not born hating another person based on their race, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic class. Hatred is taught/learned, and just as someone can be taught to hate a group of people, they can be taught to be loving, empathetic, and tolerant of others. So if someone, say a porn star with a problematic tattoo decided they wanted to change, why would I turn that person away? Why would I shun them?

        “Once a racist always a racist”. No, actually that is something that can be changed. People can change. Saying someone will always be racist is the equivalent of saying someone will always be ignorant. Racism is an inherently flawed set of ideals, not actions like rape or murder, but it can conceivably lead to such actions.

          Thank you. I’m sure if you would’ve dragged Brian in a full circle that one would’ve called you out for that. Anything to be on the opposing side of a Black person, all while pretending he’s down for the cause. Fucking joke.

    I find it hard to believe Brian didn’t expect there to be negativity surrounding his tat. It would be one thing if he was “Schillingered” while in prison, but it sounds like he was of sound mind and body when he got the tat. Whatever, people do crazy things to survive. But if it was something he was so against, correcting it should’ve been one of the first things he did after getting back on his feet. Beyond the tat though, It’s a little disturbing that at no point in filming that Hunting Beaux scene did Marc, Beaux or even Diego stop and think this wasn’t a good idea. Dude was fingering Beaux’s ass with his flag hand and nobody had the sense to say it was in poor taste? Especially Beaux, given his interaction with Jake over the Black Panther discussion. The whole thing was just weird and sloppy.

    At least Brian put some effort into his Apology Tour. He was eating Beaux’s ass like he was trying to make reparations with his tongue. Send Jason to knock those walls out and then maybe we can discuss the long hoe road to healing.

      Bitch I was just watching this last night. The fact that Rupaul’s name was Rachel Tension. Lol I can’t.

      • C A

        Yeah, why you said. Looking at his twitter he has so many POC’s complimenting him is disgusting. When is that change supposed to some again?

  • sam my

    Like I said before, Im sure Brian Michaels is now the biggest, sweet hearted, loving, respectful, caring, Alllivesmatter, tatted up teddy bear in the world, and he probably does regret getting the tattoo, but the issue was never who he was as a person, but why did he still have it ? That’s the biggest issue, why did he still have it on his hand? Showing it off for many to see. It’s not like you didn’t or dont know or notice its there ?

    • Devin

      So, when people get dragged on social media they tend to take some sort of corrective action. Especially, when it may hurt their pockets. That’s all

    • Edward

      He can have the tattoo. It’s his body. Do with it as he sees fit just like people can own as many Confederate flags as they want. Free speech protects hate speech. It doesn’t protect you from the consequences of your actions. He’s not my cup of tea (tattoo or nah), but I’m sure he’s someone else’s. La-di-da.

  • Silver64

    He may have covered up his Tat, but his Twitter feed is still the same. The hashtags still say it all. I still can’t get over the #blackmail one.

    You can put lipstick on a Pig, or in this case, cover up a Tat, but it’s still a Pig.

  • NickDC

    Yes, the studios that made the decision to feature a symbol of hate [on a performer] in their films are scumbags and, as Zach wrote they made the decision to “perpetuate and normalize racist imagery” even after it was brought to their attention numerous times.

    As far as Brian Michaels goes, I can accept his explanation that he made a very poor decision at a dark time in his life and took action to correct it. Perhaps he could not afford to have it removed [tattoo removal is incredibly expensive] and took the much cheaper alternative of having it covered up with another tattoo — I don’t know. That being said, while I don’t in any way view him as a victim, I accept his apology and hope that he does not do anything to make myself or others who accept his apology regret doing so.

    Thanks to Zach for holding accountable “multiple studios were choosing to make a racist symbol part of their entertainment.”

    • Devin

      BS! Tattoos are expensive. So, what’s the difference? Save up your tattoo money and instead of getting more tattoos get that racist crap removed. Some will actually remove your racist tattoos for free. Sorry, but you need to be resourceful in this life. No excuses. This is not 1960s

      • AsherStClaire

        Tattoo removal isn’t a one and done solution. They require multiple sessions and are apparently really painful. And while there are resources that’ll remove them free of charge, a) they’re not very common which mean’s he’d likely have to travel out of state to get them done which means time away from working and b) they’d still require multiple trips to get the tattoo completely removed. It’s a lot more cost effective to simply get the thing covered up in one sitting than traveling multiple times to get it removed. Stop being so fucking obtuse.

          Any other job in the world is going to tell you to get them lasered off before or don’t even bother coming in for an interview

          • AsherStClaire

            I mean, you’re being incredibly hyperbolic. Given that a lot, A LOT of people try and live in a nebulous mindset where the Confederate Flag is more about history and culture” than racism and give the flag a pass on those grounds. I live in the south and have met and seen plenty of them in my day. If the tattoo was of something more egregious like a swastika or a an SS symbol I’d be more inclined to believe you.

      My thing is, that if he wasn’t in the same place(Head Space) and knew it was vile, why not do it before filming? Before, he started Amazon Wishlists and such. Before, asking where his “Slavesz’ where to pay to fly his dog somewhere or send him money for doing nothing.

      Also, as pointed out Men dot com is a sleazy ass studio for hiring someone like Brian and filming that scene. Beaux has almost and credibility on issue of race and/or race in the Adult Industry for me personally. Is showed he doesn’t a have a clear idea of what the hell he was talking about. He wants to talk about the contributions of POC’s contributions being diminished, yet he clearly doesn’t know or taking anything Diesel Washington has been sYing these last several years. Diesel stood up and continues to stand up, Beaux, bent over arched his back and took it like a real fool. If Diesel was presented with Brian on a set, shit would have gotten real and those jacked up teeth Brian has would probably be gone.

      We all know that men don’t care about the low life’s they hire, shame on me thinking Diego Sans or his hubby, Marc would say something about this or have anything with it. Wife, beaters, Child Molesters, drug addicts, white supremasist super fucked couple Paul Cannon and Damien Kyle….I could go on, but just fuck these studios who seek the rope and turn the other way, so they can say we’re not like that and we don’t string up – insert ethnicity here- bullshit.

      • Xzamilloh

        I agree, but I still see the “slavez” thing as in context to fetishism and not racially motivated, although the combination of the tat isn’t doing him any favors, and Zach is right that the studios should have known better than to have that featured prominently. But, another point of contention I have is the balls to wall reaction to Brian Michaels’ tattoo, and yet nothing in regards to Beaux Banks agreeing to work with him. The way I see it, if you’re going to call out one, call out the other.

        • C A

          Agreed. I’m surprised at the whole slave/findom fetishization becoming more and more popular these days. The two together definitely had me do a double take.

          Yes. Yes, Beaux needs to be called out. He needs to explain how he could be so obtuse about this whole thing. How do you miss a tattoo like that, working so closely with someone for hours? That’s exactly, why both of them don’t get a pass.

      • NickDC

        Thanks for sharing this information. I honestly knew none of this — I don’t follow him on social media and was completely unaware of any of this. Thank you.

        That being said, if he is serious about his desire to change he will have to prove it and his actions will speak louder than any words he might say to try to imply change.

        Again, thank you for enlightening me about this.

  • Devin

    This changes absolutely NOTHING. Let’s talk about the dark time in his life that he mentioned in the video What did he do during that dark time? Did he bully or physically hurt anyone based on their ethnicity during his “dark time”? Who did he hurt? Let’s talk about it because I’m sure the people he hurt don’t give a damn about him getting his tattoo covered up. Let’s talk about why these porn studios had no problem hiring him. At the very least they could have covered his tattoo with makeup, but they didn’t. They simply didn’t give af. Something is wrong here people!

    • Edward

      Devin girl, you in trouble. TROUBLE!!

    • Xzamilloh

      Okay those are all good points.

  • whodunit?

    Great post. And there are some surprisingly thoughtful responses. Glad he covered it up but that doesn’t change his heart or mind. Shame on the studios for promoting hatred. People makes mistakes in life and hopefully can be better moving forward. Racism, hate, intolerance is disgusting to see it still be so prevalent. We need to move forward, not backward.

  • Cubankid

    Okay, he fixed the tattoo now what about the teeth?

    • sam my

      You and this pettiness, go have to stop. Lol

      • Cubankid

        Anybody defending this ex con is a piece of shit along with him.

  • Julio Grandeur

    Now he can focus on those teeth!

    • C A

      He’s gonna need to sell some asson PoysHalfWayHpuse or RaunchyBastards for that.

  • smart

    G4P, sexually fluid men who prefers women but use men for sex and money and racist are the trashes being promoted in gay porn. I just love how piracy is ruining this pathetic industry full of self-loathers.

  • Marcus Collack

    the question was why multiple studios were choosing to make a racist symbol part of their entertainment. People with racist tattoos that perpetuate and normalize racist imagery don’t belong in media, and
    racist symbols like the Confederate Flag don’t belong on display in porn—or on display anywhere. – That Part

    So (and it’s ludicrous to even have to say this), calling out racism loudly and directly is exactly the right thing to do, and we should all be ready to do it again the next time it inevitably happens. – That Part

    Dude looks like a damn druggie why even acknowledge him.

    At least the cook covered his up he might have had some humility about it

    Someone who has it all out and proudly
    is just saying to you
    i believe in this stuff and IDGAF if you like it or not

    there is no excuse for someone under the age of 20 30 or 40 trying to play the naive victim
    saying i dont know what it meant or i got in with some bad folks

  • pangelboy

    It is disappointing that MEN didn’t care enough to cover up a symbol of hate in their product and that his mixed co-star decided to rush to defend his choice to do porn with a Confederate flag tattoo.

    That said…he ain’t even cute. Does gay porn even have standards anymore?

  • Bastian

    Well guys, we paid for it!

  • BLACKjHAMMER

    He has a VERY RACIST symbol tattooed on his hand and than he complains about being judge really ??? If ones has a big piece of SHIT on their hand and someone said they smell like SHIT would U categorized that as judgemental or someone calling it like they see or should I say SMELL it !!;

  • ManFromKingston

    I disagree with Zach on this one. From the pictures I saw, both the studio and the actor PROMINENTLY displayed the confederate flag in their marketing and promotional materials. These are posed photos. Actor and Studio knew it was there and they knew what they were doing.
    To believe this version of events, you would have to:
    1. Ignore the fact that the same effort to cover up or fix the Pro-Slavery Flag could have been done BEFORE the pictures and vids were made/published.
    2. Believe that you are looking at a jailhouse tattoo, and not part of a sleeve that cost hundreds of dollars over weeks or months to be professionally done
    3. Pretend you don’t know MEN has enough business acumen to also own SEANCODY, PORNHUB, REDTUBE and many others, but just randomly chooses candid photos for their massive ad campaigns that show up everywhere

    I will NEVER spend a dime at men again. But most of you will. Shame on you all.

    • Zachary Sire

      I don’t understand what you disagree with me on.

      • ManFromKingston

        I thought you bought his “explanation”.
        But re-reading your 2nd paragraph, I realize you didn’t say that, you were just reporting on his response as a good journalist should.

        More importantly, I understood you loud and clear that the studios put this out there despite knowing what a Confederate Flag is and what it means.

        Most guys do not pay for porn, but I do. And I will not be supporting MEN dot COM or COLLEGEDUDES
