EXCLUSIVE: MagicJack™ Millionaire Donald Burns Sought “Private Meetings” With Sean Cody Models—With Alleged Extortionist Jarec Wentworth’s Help

Earlier this month, Str8UpGayPorn was tipped to several photos of legendary Sean Cody performer Ashton canoodling with multiple old, wealthy, white men at various high society charity events in Florida, New York, and California. The most newsworthy aspect of those photos (at the time) was that Ashton was photographed with Kip Forbes, the publishing magnate and brother to Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes. Turns out, it’s Ashton’s other old, wealthy, white male companion who’s a much more interesting fellow: Donald Burns.

IMG_0318-MacKinzie-Amadon,-Kip-Forbes,-Donald-BurnsThat’s Ashton on the left (obviously) and Forbes in the center, and the man on the far right is named Donald Burns. Ashton and Donald Burns’ close friendship hasn’t been a secret, as the two have traveled the world together and made public appearances at several high profile events over the last two years. Here’s Ashton and Donald Burns at a charity gala in Florida, a trip to the Louvre in Paris, and a Grammys party in Los Angeles:

mackinzie donSo, who is Donald Burns? In addition to being a very close friend of Ashton’s, Donald Burns is a political activist, telecommunications executive, and multimillionaire who, with $25 million dollars, co-founded the VoIP and internet phone service magicJack. (You’ve no doubt seen their annoying commercials running over and over again during late night TV.) Before starting magicJack (where he is currently the Chairman of the Board), Donald Burns served as CEO and/or co-founded several other telecom companies, per his Bloomberg profile:

magicJackMr. Donald A. Burns, also known as Don, served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of VocalTec Communications Ltd. and was responsible for its day-to-day operations, leadership, and the financial integrity. Mr. Burns began his telecommunications career at ATX Communications, Inc. at its founding in 1985. Mr. Burns co-founded Telco Communications Group, Inc. in July 1993 and served as its Chief Executive Officer since April 1996, President since July 1993 and Secretary from July 1993 to April 1996. He has been the Chairman of magicJack VocalTec Ltd. since January 1, 2013. He served as Vice Chairman of Telco since April 1996 and has been its Director since July 1993. He has been a Director of magicJack VocalTec Ltd. since December 21, 2010.

Throughout his tenure as Chairman of the Board of Directors at magicJack, Donald Burns hasn’t just used his wealth and influence to befriend Sean Cody models like Ashton; he’s also donated thousands of dollars to political candidates, including John McCain, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Ralph Nader, as revealed in a 2008 Tampa Bay Times article:

When it comes to Republicans, he’s given to both Rudy Giuliani and Sen. John McCain. He’s a past supporter of President George W. Bush, former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley and Sen. Mel Martinez. In the 2004 presidential campaign, he contributed $1,000 to the Swift Boat group that attacked Democratic nominee Sen. John Kerry.

But that same year, Burns gave $2,000 each to Democrat John Edwards and Ralph Nader. He’s given $2,300 to Sen. Barack Obama. And back in 2005, he gave $5,000 to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, which funds openly gay political candidates.

Burns is a former chief executive of publicly traded Telco Communication Group, a discount long-distance service provider. It was sold in 1997 for $1.2-billion. In the decade since then, he’s launched the Donald A. Burns Foundation, a Palm Beach charitable foundation to “promote educational and social institutions.” Tax records show assets of $10.7-million in 2006.

Burns also owns the New York building where actor Heath Ledger died this year.

While Donald Burns clearly has diverse taste in his politicians, he’s fairly vanilla when it comes to his taste in men, as they all come from Sean Cody. In addition to his relationship with Sean Cody’s Ashton, Str8UpGayPorn can exclusively confirm that Donald Burns was also seeking to arrange “private meetings” with several of Sean Cody’s most popular models, including Jamie, Curtis, and Randy, as seen below:

jamie curtis randy sean cody

Str8UpGayPorn has verified that all of the below text messages were sent from Donald Burns’ mobile phone, and these first two were received by Sean Cody gay porn star Curtis (referred to below as “Nicholas”):

burns34

Maybe Donald Burns was referring to this 12/24/14 post about Curtis’ Christmas creampie?

Donald Burns is nothing if not persistent, as he continued to solicit Curtis with “opportunities” just last month. In this next message, Burns sweetens the deal by offering to pay Curtis (referred to below as “Nick”) an extra $2,500 “referral fee” if he can convince his horse-hung Sean Cody co-star Randy to join them (perhaps not coincidentally, Curtis and Randy’s bareback fuckfest was released on February 7th, just one day before Burns sent this message):

IMG_2350

While the above messages don’t reveal how Donald Burns was put into contact with Curtis, the below messages leave little doubt as to who was assisting him. In this string of text messages from last November, Donald Burns attempts to arrange a meeting with former Sean Cody model Jamie (referred to below as “Kyle”). According to Donald Burns, the person who suggested that Jamie would be “up for a trip” is none other than Teo (a.k.a. Teofil Brank, a.k.a. Jarec Wentworth, a.k.a. Jarek, Jamie’s former co-star):

JFF8hoGR

As of post time, Str8UpGayPorn can’t confirm whether these “private meetings” did occur, but Donald Burns’ public relationship with Ashton does indicate that the multimillionaire magicJack Chairman has been extremely successful at spending time with Sean Cody models in the past.

Donald Burns’ apparent liaison to Jamie, Jarec Wentworth/Teofil Brank, was not available for comment on this story, as he remains in federal custody awaiting trial for allegedly attempting to extort $1,000,000 from an unnamed victim. According to the Grand Jury indictment filed in federal court last week, that victim’s initials are “D.B.”

  • I’m starting to feel less and less sympathetic to Teo.

    • Face Palm

      There was sympathy to be had before?

      • According to half of his co-stars on Twitter, poor Jarec was the victim in this case. Looks like men.com is the Precogs of gay porn.

        • n24rc

          Isn’t Jarec an adult, and had the mental capacity to cut ties when this went south? Didn’t have the idea of not bothering first before extortion. He should go to jail.

  • And what the fuck was Ashton wearing to the charity gala?

    • John

      Zach, how do you find this shit out!!!! The dirt!!!!! I’m sure this is the blackmailed guy. He was lucky to get to bed any SC stud. I wonder what the max amount paid for a male call boy was?

  • stephen

    I wonder if “Jamie” accepted the offer….l wouldn’t have expected his name in the mix based on his post SC life

    • andrew

      Didn’t Jamie join the military?

      • stephen

        his fiance was navy, I don’t remember what he was in

  • Only she can save u b-atch

  • Diogenes Veritas

    I’m sure the initials of the victim and Mr. Burns’s fan-fueled interest in the Sean Cody boys is merely a coincidence. Besides vanilla is a perfectly legitimate flavor choice

    • andrew

      If Jamie is vanilla, I sure do LOVE vanilla.

  • WillG

    Well this pretty well establishes that Donald Burns is Brank’s victim. We have the connection to “Teo” in the text messages, who is acting as a pimp, I mean FACILITATOR FOR PRIVATE MEETINGS, which was also hinted at in Brank’s own text messages. And then we have the heretofore redacted “victim D.B.” in the indictment.

    Not sure what prompted Zach to unredact that, particularly since in the indictment post he said he would not be “publishing anything about the identity of the victim,” though that was ” subject to change depending on how this case plays out publicly.” I don’t really see how gaining access to these private text messages constitutes any change in the case’s public posture, so color me confused.

    It’s also clear that the alleged extortion was not based on a threat to out Burns as gay, since he’s not in the closet, so we can now speculate on just what it was Brank was threatening to expose.

    • Benjam

      The pics could be graphic or he could have an embarrassing fetish. He mentions “we” in the text so other guys who maybe arent out might be involved too.

      • Loki

        I think the “we” he’s referring to is him and “Jamie”/Kyle exchanging emails in the past.

      • BK

        I wonder how many pictures there are of him getting spit roasted by SC models? >.> Dick pig realness.

          How’s the Mariah Carey song go…?

          Surely, he can’t have been that sloppy…

          • robirob

            Maybe he’s a hopeless romantic or watched Pretty Woman way too many times?

        • John Marc

          I for one can’t imagine ever being able to get it up for an old out of shape geezer like him. It’s just..no. No. Gross.

          • Todd

            I would also pass on this Mr. Burns as well ….

            Viagra…if that doesn’t work, Cialis. And if that doesn’t work, Caverject. Then bimax, trimax, and quadmax. Seriously I think some of those things must work–they get you hard no matter what’s going on in your brain, assuming you’ve got normal genitals otherwise. Those things are meant for guys with serious health issues.

            Also, I’m sure some of his dates were straight, which sort of makes his looks moot.

          • John Marc

            They get you hard but I still wouldn’t be able to wipe off the look of disgust off my face…and even worse, what if it’s bareback?! no….I just cant. Not with him.

          • robirob

            Some johns love the look of disgust in their hustler’s eyes. It makes them feel powerful that they can do something to him he clearly doesn’t enjoy.

      • La Bambi

        I’m having a flashback to the ‘ass-to-ass’ scene from Requiem for a Dream. Two Sean Cody queens, a double-sided dildo, and the Orange County Log Cabin Republicans committee.

      • Jarjar26

        The pic where Amadon is wearing the costume – maybe he was into elaborate role play?

    • Dazzer

      Donald Burns’ name had been prominently mentioned on other blogs.

      This is Zach’s story. He owns it.

      And I know that people try to pass of the infant Sire as nothing ‘more’ than a ‘porn bloger’, people seem to forget that he’s also a journalist in good repute in terms of his ethics. And yes, I’m saying that as a professional journalist who has worked at the very highest levels of politics and entertainment in my own country.

      (And for God’s sake, I worked on the News of the World when I was younger – I had a ringside seat to what happens when journalistic ethics get fucked up. And that’s why I never took the Murdoch money and earned a lot less in my professional life – but was always able to sleep at night.)

      So the estimable Mr Sire either has to keep on owning this story or he has to sacrifice the professional and ethical grounds to other porn journalists.

      And as someone who has taught journalistic ethics, I think he made the right decision.

      I am entirely on board with the people that say you should never shame the victim in a blackmailing plot.

      But once other people start naming the victim, Zach had no option but to take control of the story again – and present it according to his ethical lights.

      And please note – anyone who wants to pile on against Sire/Shire/FiarZach or whatever you want to re-name him, all he’s done is present the information here. He’s kept the editorialising to a minimum.

      Other people can make value judgments. The incredibly hunky Zachary isn’t. He’s just putting the information out there.

      And, for the record, I came out of this information with a damn sight more respect for Donald Burns than I ever thought I would before I knew his name.

      The man might have been screwing younger, more attractive men, but with the exception of Teo Brank, he appears to have adhered to Dustin Lance Black’s campfire rules of ‘do no harm’. And older, more wealthy men have been screwing younger, more attractive members of the human race for thousands of years.

      Burns might have been fallible, but he was also – inescapably – homo sapiens.

      As a side note, Burns reminds me of a British guy called Max Moseley. Moseley’s father was a leading British Fascist in WWII. Max Mosely went on to earn a tremendous amount of aclaim (without a single Fascist tint to his reputation) as a leader of Formula One racing in Europe.

      He also liked having lightly BDSM orgies with ‘ladies of the night’ – one of whom sold him out to the Sun newspaper. This Murdoch sewer rat of a piece of garbage thn characterised Moseley as enacting ‘prison camp/Holocaust’ sex fantasies.

      It was a complete and utter lie.

      And Moseley called the right-wing media’s bluff on it. He went to court, he won his case and then he went full-faced into public life again to argue that media-style ‘blackmail’ needed public figures to oppose it.

      And the boy Burns seems – at the moment – to have that kind of integrity.

      Public shaming only goes so far – at some stage, you have to stand up for principles, no matter how embarrassing that might appear to be in the short term.

      (And, OH GOD AGAIN, why is the second gay porn blog that has had to make think about hard things like statistics and ethics than other places like TheGuardian or HufingtonPost or TheEconomist. The world has turned upside down and no mistake.)

      • Pearl Clutcher

        LOL.

  • GN

    I think the hazy picture is becoming more and more clear. Mr MagicJack has a taste for SeanCody models, and not just Teo in particular. Teo was willing to oblige him, but eventually realized that if MagicJack was gonna be plugging into any available USB port, he would eventually have no use for Teo, and his meal ticket would be revoked. Teo, (having made it clear that he’s sweet as pie until you cross him) felt threatened by the monster he created–and, voila. The user is now the used.
    I can literally picture Teo sitting there gritting his teeth at Magicjack as he groped various guys from the SeanCody roster, with Teo thinking, “he wouldnt even know them if it wasn’t for me, and now he’s letting them drive MY Audi” And THAT is when shit got real. Teo felt slighted. If you’re gonna treat me like a hustler du jour then I’ll show you what a hustler I can really be. Now you owe me or I’m gonna call you out. And it’s not even about the Audi. It’s about the fact that a 20-something pretty boy feels that a middle-aged man with a lot of money but not a lot of looks should need Teo more than he needs him. People who try to control relationships with either money or sex, will eventually find themselves lonely and wanting. Emotions seep in, even into superficial arrangement such as this. Real affection is something that cannot be bargained for, I pity them both, and have no sympathy for them at the same time. Make sense?

    • pangelboy

      >Teo, (having made it clear that he’s sweet as pie until you cross him) felt threatened by the monster he created…

      So, when are you going to be finished writing the screenplay for the Lifetime movie adaptation?

      • GN

        I didnt write it, Teo and MagicJack wrote it, I’m just the commentator.

      • La Bambi

        Who would play Teo? And for Don, is Nathan Lane available?

        • sxg

          I would have picked the guy who played Mr. Belding from Saved By The Bell for DB!

          • RPDX80

            Mr. Belding!!!!! Perfect!!! LMFAO!!!!!

          • Trey LEone

            Omg these comments are cracking me up!!!

    • DPS

      This is more than just a plausible scenario. It has weight and volume. Excellent job for focusing on the core trouble for those involved.

    • andrew

      You tell an interesting story. How close it is to the truth is open to question.

    • Luca

      I think it’s actually much simpler.

      The guy has occasionally enjoyed the company of some Sean Cody models (I suppose if you have some contacts in the circuit it’s not that difficult to get names and phone contact), then he enjoys Teo for a bit in exchange of good money.
      Teo however has a game on his own and starts becoming the contact himself; in the meanwhile he starts accumulating blackmailing evidence against the guy and at a certain point he starts using it, perhaps also in exchange for the continuation of his services as intermediary (which must have been successful then). At first he succeeds then he becomes greedy, and that’s history.

      • Kevin

        We only know of Burns relationship with Ashton. There is no proof of him hooking up with other models, only proof he contacted other models.

        • Luca

          well, the story still stands even if Teo was the first SC model he hooked up with. It actually gains in simplicity.

          • Kevin

            Ok, we know of two models Burns had met up with. We don’t know what they did, call me naive but maybe Ashton and Teo were just armcandy for Burns to show of and he never had sex with them. What bothers me is that a lot of people assume that because they do porn then they must also work as escorts. SC’s starting rate is 2000 which i think is a lot for just a jerk off scene so if they decide to return and do more scenes they can make a lot of money, probably a years salary. I think i read on the Sword some time ago that one of their models claimed to have made 40.000 dollars.

          • Jarjar26

            Pretty sure Amadon had sec with Burns. You’re not taking someone to Paris and Aspen just to have them around. I bet Mackinzie was the bottom with Burns. And then there are the group scenes…

          • Kevin

            I pretty sure they had sex as well, i think Jarec was probably nothing more than armcandy.

          • DumbA$$

            They’ve had sex, trust me

          • Trey LEone

            bitch how u know???
            where u there?

    • DumbA$$

      you’re probably the dumbest person I know. Teo is not like that.

  • pangelboy

    Wow.

    Where are you getting this from? Frickin’ Angela Lansbury of gay porn.

      I fucking love that gif, and I miss him. Thank you.

    …but how’d you get the texts tho?

  • John

    Well I will say this, the man has great taste….I would have Jamie on my top 5 call list if I had millions of dollars for sure….still not sure what the old man had to hide to be extorted, considering he was out and about with his SC boys, its not like people are going to find something he was hiding….hell he took them out in public…if he is only worth 10 million extorting him for a million plus a 6 figure car is too high of a price, he had to turn him him he didn’t have that kinda a jack to give up….

    • Todd

      Uhhhhh ………..not so much …….. the purported victim bought a California mansion in 2012 ………..for $ 14 million (original asking price was $ 45 million)

      Oh yea ….the article mentioned that the mansion OVERLOOKS A NUDE BEACH …. but that Mr. Burns was unaware of that when he bought it.

      http://stream1.gifsoup.com/webroot/animatedgifs/1005680_o.gif

    • La Bambi

      He is worth far more than $10 million, it’s quoted his foundation has assets of $10 mil. That means he felt like declaring $10 mil of tax write-offs. Imagine what your tax return is worth to you, and that’s what the foundation is worth to him.

      • BoomPow

        Burns co-founded and served as CEO of Telco Communications which sold for 1.2 billion dollars in 1997. He invested 25 million in start up Magicjack and has made another shit load of money currently serving as chairman of the board.

  • NeverEclipsed81

    boring! totally had my hopes up thinking it was be a super hot totally closeted celebrity. moving on. who did Jarek think he was kidding? ooh the CEO of magic jack might be outed, twitter has never seen such shock. *rolls eyes*

  • Todd

    Mr. MagicJack ….. meet Fleshjack ….
    Could’ve saved yourself $ 500K+ …. and a car …. and ALOT of embarrassment

    • NeverEclipsed81

      lmao i agree except with sean cody models i get why they’re a little better than fleshjacks..

    • Luca

      frankly, I prefer SeanCody models, so I completely agree with DB’s choices! 😀
      His problem is that he trusted the wrong guy at a certain point. Not clever.

    damn that dude is totally going to kill himself

    • Todd

      Doubtful. He must’ve realized that odds were not on his side that he’d be revealed in public ……….
      Now …….if those pictures/videos get released ?? I’ll have to reconsider my answer.

  • John Marc

    I wish I was a rich con-man.

  • McM.

    The rumors about Sean Cody being a catalog for wealthy johns:

    • Rick Tan

      If those rumors were true, Don wouldn’t need Jarec to hook him up with other models. Unless of course he’s trying to cheat madam sean cody’s expensive brothel dues.

    • Luca

      I think every porn site is potentially a catalog for wealthy johns. With the willing involvement of the guys themselves, which don’t mind for sure to make some extra money (after all they make porn, I can see that for several of them there’s not much difference between being paid a money to have sex on film and maybe double the money for a rich client).
      Actually, many pornstars are even escorts, so the game is completely transparent.

      • Kevin

        If and if SC was basically run like a glorified escort service then i assume Mindgeek would make sure that would not happen again because they don’t want any legal troubles.

        • Luca

          Well, escort service -is- legal.
          This is why all this discussion that seems SC is leading a prostitution ring sounds fake to me.
          Unless it comes out that SC was actively looking for johns to propose his boys to as in a sort of catalog and getting a percentage of their prostitution activities, there’s nothing really that bad.

          • Kevin

            It’s a juicy rumour but i don’t believe it either. But i would like to know how Burns got in contact with SC boys (Ashton) before Teofil got in the picture.

  • McM.
    • Luca

      do you really think it’s just Sean Cody?

      • McM.

        Absolutely not. However, Sean Cody has exclusive rights to the image of models under contract, especially when it comes to sexual promotion. They’ve relaxed on some past restrictions, but up until a year ago you never a saw a Sean Cody performer on social media and you definitely didn’t see them fucking at other studios. Before Coleman, you couldn’t find performers with a pre-existing or concurrent online presence outside of the studio, and it was by design.

        Like everyone else here, I enjoy watching porn, and I also understand there are practical reasons beyond the commonly accepted explanations of “I just love fucking” and “I thought it’d be fun to try out and I ended up really liking it” as to why guys end up in front of the camera. Those feel-good responses may apply to a few, but for a majority of the industry money is a motivating factor.

        I never see the guys fucking on film as being desperate, to me they’re smart. Porn is an excellent way to advertise other services. It increases exposure and popularity, which allows a guy to charge more for private bookings and appearances. It is rather expected porn stars work in other areas of the sex industry, like escorting and/or stripping.

        And that is where the disconnect is with Sean Cody. Here we have a huge roster of dude-bros presumably gainfully employed in other areas, who take time out of their busy schedules to be repeatedly flown into another state to work through 15-20 other active guys at the time, and have their assholes reamed out and filled with cum. Because it’s fun!

        http://media.tumblr.com/2ebb9b651a95b72f6ba9743d61c49c2c/tumblr_inline_moe1xojpy11qz4rgp.jpg

        Sean Cody models are making money for the same reasons and just like every other guy with a rentboy profile. They’re just allowing the studio to do all the footwork, and the approach nets them more money. Again, smart.

        • Kevin

          Call me naive but i honestly think the majority of their models only have sex with men when they are shooting scenes and that some hook up with each other privately. They enjoy the sex and make some good money but i just can’t see them as escorts. Some like Brandon take advantage of their popularity and ask for things but i haven’t seen any proof of active SC models escorting. In this instance we only have proof of Burns contacting two models with the help of Jarec but we don’t know if they replied. Just because they can make extra money by escorting doesn’t mean they would actually do it. Not everybody is a money hungry whore.

          • DumbA$$

            Shut the F up. We both know they escorted for more money.

          • Kevin

            You shut the fuck up! How do you know all these models are escorts, do you have proof?

          • andrew

            “they escorted for more money” Who? Name names. Show some evidence.

          • n24rc

            it is a screenshot at the top of the page – you have one model entertaining the idea of meeting D.B.

          • andrew

            Stop trying to introduce a calm reasonable and questioning attitude into the flights of fantasy some of our brother porn voyeurs are engaging in.

      • robirob

        Zach should do one of his lists of studios that pimp their models out to wealthy johns

        Michael Lucas? Well, most of their models are well known escorts already,

        BelAmi? Duh (see: Dolph Lambert with Elton John and reports of Tim Hamilton with Austria’s now dead former extreme right wing political leader Jörg Haider – not sure though, if that happened while he was with BelAmi or after)

        What about Dallas Reeves?

          I’m pretty sure if they could get away with it, Dallas Reeves and Baileey would sell their models into white slavery.

          • robirob

            Slaves usually don’t have easy access to internet and phones to call for help. So nobody could alert Zach or others about Dallas’ and Baileey’s shady business anymore.

          • andrew

            “Slaves” ? Flights of fantasy abound.

          • Secret GOP connected gay porn slavery ring busted in South Florida. Story at 11….

          • One would hope that not all their models are brainless idiots who could be sold like that.

          • daniel harcourt

            who says they haven’t? ;-p

        • Luca

          I also must say, I don’t find anything reproachable about it in itself (I mean for young guys willing to do that). It’s basically a win-win situation.
          And it’s not like the studios “pimp” them I believe. I don’t think the studios have nowadays that much power to “force” their exclusives (something that doesn’t have much meaning nowadays, besides) to prostitute themselves against their own will.

          At least I hope.

          • robirob

            Of course there is no force behind it. It’s just a studio doing what David Forest did for ages with his “Meet the Stars” program. It sure helps to cover some of the losses caused by illegal file sharing.

        • zach

          There’s no way Sean Cody is involved in the “pimping” of their models. They are trying to run a studio, film scenes, and keep their models “in line.” The last thing Sean Cody needs are a bunch of old men offering the models MORE money to go have sex with them off camera and pull them away from their work. If a model could make three or four times more money fucking one person in private, why would they bother “working” in front of the camera for less money and more time? Sean Cody and all the gay porn studios want to keep their models close and creating good content for THEM–not being poached away by random old men.

          • robirob

            I wouldn’t underestimate the temptation of having access to guys with money and, sometimes more importantly, influence (protection, insider trading, etc.).

            “The last thing Sean Cody needs are a bunch of old men offering the
            models MORE money to go have sex with them off camera and pull them away
            from their work. ”

            The Sean Cody site has more than enough models who appeared in a solo clip (and never came back for more) or who retired. No problem with a schedule conflict there.

            I am not insisting that the Sean Cody site is an online whorehouse, but I do believe that A-Gays get what they want and no site or studio says no to them when they come knocking.

          • andrew

            Just because you believe something, doesn’t mean it’s true.

          • n24rc

            Yep. They have a stringent contract, which includes clauses to prevent them leaving once they were recruited after becoming attractions to the site.

          • lordgabux

            I totally agree with you Zach. There is no logic in being fucked on camera (unless you get off on it) when you can do it in private and get 3 or 4 times more money. The studios do their best to keep their ‘ass’ets in line and that’s the way it should stay.

          • SuckAndFuck4CashAndPrizes

            Aren’t the porn scenes pretty much just advertisements for the models’ sexual skills? You know, something they to do to secure private customers?

        • One thing you can say about Treasure Island is they don’t pimp their guys out. lol

      • topher smith

        If Sean Cody was pimping the talent then why go to Brank?, the fact that he was was collecting substantial referral fees supports the argument that Sean Cody was not pliable to requests to share the talent,

        • n24rc

          SC wasn’t pimping the talent, I don’t think directly at all. There maybe a few who were legitimate escorts because of the sheer numbers of performers that went through the company.

          I think the guys who came through, were recruits from SD local bars and some from model mayhem. I wouldn’t be surprised “all kinds” of guys were recruited from chance alone. I do think a few were actually subscribers beforehand, and then decided to model for them because they wanted to meet some of the guys on the site. I know that some get into it because their girlfriends at the time are in porn themselves and convince them to.

          Some return to model mayhem and update their profiles to say no nudes and porn once they do this and realize they aren’t legit jobs. It’s all about the contract they sign when they first agree to be an SC model, they cannot fight it as it is an ironclad agreement to make them do what they ask once the money is accepted. In these cases, they aren’t exactly bright people to begin with. I’m assuming that they would take any kind of “logic” to rationalize them into doing gay porn if they were in fact straight.

    • For sure…Sean Cody has definitely pimped out those young men…how else could the studio afford to pay upwards of $5000.00 a scene…in addition to solidifying itself as a studio that hires “straight guys”…the studio became a wealthy man’s paradise…

    • I love and miss Community…

  • Str8upgaypornlover

    My question is this one of the reasons why sean Cody sold his site. He didn’t want to be implicated in the blow back/fallout of all this fucker!!

    • robirob

      They still could be, because they were the owners during that time period. And they have to save correspondance files and such for quite a while, right? So they’d have to hand over all kinds of correspondance where Burns (and other rich men?) contacted the site to receive private contact details of the site’s models or asked to be set up with a particular model of their choice.

      Of course, they could claim all the files got lost due to some unforseen accident (backup drive got destroyed during a move or something like that).

    • n24rc

      WOW. Makes you wonder given the last year of bad PR that Sean Cody got from his shoot with a high school student – and then this, no wonder he decided to sale to men.com; which is ironic because their major player Jarek is an exclusive with them now.

    I want to know who your source is, one of the SC models? Can’t your source confirm if these “meetings” actually took place. I could totally see Curtis agreeing to “meet” up with Mr. Burns, they probably hold some of the same views but not Randy, he seems so innocent and shy. I know have all these sordid images in my mind of my Favorite SC models “meeting” up with these rich old white men.

      Why do people like Curtis? I was really surprised when i found out he had a large fan base.

      • RPDX80

        Uhh… because he’s hot as fuck?

        • Rick Tan

          So I’m told. But he looks like an average guy. A teacher, accountant, etc. I would notice him if he was in public walking by.

  • GuyN90068

    I have a suspicion as to how these texts appeared. During the trial setting conference the prosecutor stated the victim and Teofil had a business (Teofil getting paid for ??) from late 2013 thru early 2015. During that time the victim paid Teofil Banks referral fees of between $1200 and $2000 for getting guys. The prosecutor states that the initial extortion (the $500K plus car) happened when one of the referrals, someone from Boston, cancelled or reneged and the victim wanted the referral fee back from Banks.

    Unfortunately the prosecutor paraphrased Bank’s texts and said “boys” instead of guys/men/people and Judge Walker jumped on it. The victims attorney, who was in court as the time, supplied “To our knowledge your Honor all the men were over 18”. Judge Walker asked the prosecutor if they were checking to verify the ages of the men and if found to be underage were they going to take action. The prosecutor said they would check on the ages.

    Here’s the rub. All these guys (the prosecutor, when asked the number by Judge Walker, said it was “under 10”) are now going/have gotten visits from the F.B.I. to verify their ages. They are now in Federal records as having been male for male escorts.

    The great majority of Sean Cody models self identify as straight, get paid a lot of money to do their scenes, pay off bills or whatever and don’t consider escorting. When enough money is waived at them they do it for one guy and then get a visit by the F.B.I……wouldn’t you be ticked and release the texts to shame the guy?

      “When it comes to Republicans, he’s given to both Rudy Giuliani and
      Sen. John McCain. He’s a past supporter of President George W. Bush,
      former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley and Sen. Mel Martinez. In the 2004
      presidential campaign, he contributed $1,000 to the Swift Boat group
      that attacked Democratic nominee Sen. John Kerry.

      But that same year, Burns gave $2,000 each to Democrat John Edwards and Ralph Nader. He’s given $2,300 to Sen. Barack Obama. And back in 2005, he gave $5,000
      to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, which funds openly gay political
      candidates.”

      That’ s interesting. Did he lead more than just one double life where he was supporting conservatives in public while supporting liberal causes and democratic political candidates in private? For some reason that makes me actually like this guy a bit (more – c’mon that guy managed to hook up with some hot Sean Cody guys even when he paid for it).

      • BoomPow

        It’s common for people with money to contribute to politicians from both sides of the aisle. It’s not an indication of who or what party they actually support. They spread their money around to curry political favors from whoever they can in an I’ll scratch your back, you scratch my back kind of way. It’s just another business expense.

        • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          so glad someone here understand the concept of business expenses. Political contributions seldom reflect one’s stance on gay-related issue whatsoever.

        • daniel harcourt

          correct and a rich man buying escorts or politicians is really no different most could care less about political views its all about BUYING TIME, Face time access. I have always believed the true whores are American politicians who are for sale to the highest bidder. Very few politicos care WHO gives them money.

      • disqus_9xayOTnP13

        Business people always give to both sides to hedge the bet.
        But dropping $5k to the Gay PAC isn’t hiding very well.

    • DN1002

      This clarifies the defendant’s tweet to the victim on 2/16/15, quoted in the FBI affidavit:
      “I guess findin you boys is out of the picture.”

      I assume you mean that the victim paid the defendant $1200 to $2000 per referral, not a total of $1200 to $2000 in referral fees for the entire period from late 2013 to early 2015.

      BTW, the defendant’s surname is Brank, not Banks or Bank, and the adjective “federal” is not capitalized :) (I’m reading a novel where the author has the annoying habit of capitalizing every occurrence of the adjectives “state” and “federal.”)

      An “escort” is simply someone who accompanies another at a social event. lol

      Shame which guy? The victim? We don’t know that any of the men referred to the victim were hired to escort the victim.

      • GuyN90068

        The conference was a lot more than just setting the date.

        The referral fees were per encounter; not for the entire period. And from what the prosecutor said about this whole thing starting when the victim wanted the referral fee back from Teofil when an encounter didn’t happen, I assume that they were only paid when the person referred came through.

        Yesterday was a long day writing new policies and I really wasn’t checking by typing.

          “And from what the prosecutor said about this whole thing starting when the victim wanted the referral fee back from Teofil when an encounter didn’t happen, I assume that they were only paid when the person referred came through.”

          Wow, Burns could have avoided all of this by not demanding, what, 2,500 USD (max) back? I guess Burns downfall was his ego. He should have just let it go and never contact Teo again (by then he should have met enough Sean Cody models who know other Sean Cody models …).

      I think Ashton has moved on thanks to using sugar daddy’s access to rich people and scored himself some gigs (like that liquor spokesperson job).

    So did he lead another double life where he supported conservative causes and candidates in public while supporting liberal causes and democratic candidates in private or is that usually done in those rich circles?

    What was Mackinzie’s role in all of this? Was Ashton cheated on?

    • robirob

      Maybe Teo felt Burns “cheated” on him with Ashton by taking / showing him around at official parties and events (where he felt that Burns should have raised his social profile instead of Ashton’s)? When did the events and parties take place where Burns and Ashton were seen and photographed together (was it before or after Teo’s first blackmail attempt where he got the Audi8 and half a million)?

  • steve adams

    Wow AMAZING reporting here, and thanks for being brave enough to post this. I hope there is not any negative repercussion for doing so.

    My question is now what? Now that the cat is out of the bag, Brank has lost his bargaining power it would seem. Previously, he could promise to remain quiet for a plea, but now it seems that it would be in the best interest of the “victim” to let him rot in the clink.

  • Omg Zach, you cracked the case!

  • Yuck. I’m not sure why I was expecting a celebrity, but it does beg the question why Jarek “allegedly” was trying to extort this warlock. No body knows or cares if this old queen uses escorts or not. Silly old fool deserves everything he gets for handing this trick anything.

  • Another closet case Republican ass hole. The money he gave to democrats was probably just keep his closet door nice and secure. Hope his dirty laundry comes out in trial that he’s been hiring gay escorts.

  • Estelle

    Wannabe Porn hookers take note. More likely then not this is what you will be rimming. Not a hot 22 year old. Sex parties with men that look like jake cruise and this wax face are what you have to look forward to.

  • Sorry, but except for a little hypocrisy for Burns’ supporting – mostly – Republican candidates, so what? This article feels like the 1980’s, outing well-known people. And he’s not all that well-known, just rich. On the other hand, is it really news that many porn stars make income escorting? Or that their producer might be involved? Big deal.

Fourth: Why in the world did Teo/Jarec try to get greedy after pulling a Candace Young, (Have and Have nots) when he already got $500,000 and a car. The things people do. (well he probably did it because he was greedy, and the guy just kept using him to try to bang Sean cody models, figuring he just keeps digging himself deeper.)
