We’re less than a week away from the Jarec Wentworth trial, and Str8UpGayPorn has just learned who the prosecution plans to call to testify against the alleged extortionist and embattled gay porn star.

The prosecution’s witness list—which the defense has responded to below—includes FBI agents, Donald Burns, Justin Griggs (a.k.a. Sean Cody’s Taylor, a.k.a. CockyBoys’ Justin Matthews), and one mystery “cooperating witness.”

witnesses

As you’ll recall, Jarec Wentworth and Sean Cody’s Taylor (Griggs) both “worked” for Donald Burns in Palm Beach late last year:

And as Donald Burns revealed during an FBI interview, he would regularly send Taylor/Justin Griggs money, under a “helping hand context”:

griggs

Given the “monetary support” Burns provided Griggs, it isn’t exactly a surprise that’s he now willing to testify for the prosecution (i.e., Donald Burns).

And here, for the first time ever, is video proof of Donald Burns with one of his paid companions, obtained exclusively by Str8UpGayPorn. The September, 2013 video unfortunately(?) features nothing sexual, but you will see Donald Burns dining with a group of his boys, as Justin Griggs narrates. If anyone can ID the other people in this video, please contact me.

UPDATE: After watching the video about a thousand times, I think I can safely ID the second person (after “Stuart”) Griggs calls out: Hayden! Look at “Hayden” closely, and you’ll see that it’s Sean Cody’s Willis. OMG.

hayden willisIf I’m correct (and I’m 99.9% certain that I am) we can now identify Willis as the NINTH Sean Cody model who Donald Burns paid (or attempted to pay) to fuck. Willis follows previously identified models Jarek, Randy, Curtis, Taylor, Jamie, Ashton, Arthur, and Aidan. And remember, the FBI has stated there were ELEVEN Don Burns escorts in total, so there are still two left to be identified.

Jarec Wentworth can’t be pleased to know that his former friend, fellow Donald Burns escort, and Sean Cody co-star is about to testify against him. Remember when Taylor and Jarek had a bareback three-way on Sean Cody with Brent? If Jarek thought Taylor was fucking him here, just wait until next week…

    Wow, that is quite the find.

  • stephen

    say it with me now

    • 1234

      The FOL gif really dates me. I vaguely remember the episode.

  • sxg

    If you’re not the cooperating witness I think I’ll be pissed because you should be in that courtroom! lol

    At the very least, are you allowed to sit in during trial???

    • Zachary Sire

      Yes, I’ll be there to cover it.

      • NG212

        Make sure you buy and wear one of those spy cameras shaped like a pen or tie clip.

        Kudos on the great reporting on this story. Looking forward to more.

        • n24rc

          Make sure you take pictures of Teo’s face when the guilty verdict comes back. I hope the bitch cries, I’ll cum to his cry face. LMAO

      • steve adams

        So glad to hear you will be there! I almost considered taking time off to attend.

      • robirob

        Are you sure you’ll be allowed to enter? At this point I’d guess Don Burns has a restraining order against you to come anywhere near him or this case.

        • loyalty888

          lol on what grounds? writing about him online?

      • sxg

        You should bring a sketch artist with you to draw out what’s going on in the courtroom! If not, just draw us stick figures we’ll get the idea!

      • Scrapple

        I’m grape jelly. This trial is everywhere I want to be.

        • Mike Julius

          Then you’re Visa, not just jelly.

      • Zealot

        I’m so excited, I can’t stand it…

      • MimiB

        Absolutely can hardly wait for your coverage of the porn trial of the century! Maybe Brent/Sean will cum back to porn acting roles once he reads your outstanding coverage.

        Of course you’ll need to interject him into this somehow since he thinks the world and everything in it is all about him. Perhaps he’s one of the two, as yet, unidentified escorts! Madame Forest will not be too pleased.

      • 1234

        Wow, so dedicated…

  • Kevin

    That’s definitely Willis/Hayden. Why is D.B. not prosecuted and why are Justin and Hayden willing to justify against Teofil, are they being pressured or paid? Maybe stupid questions but know very little about how the law works in the U.S.

    • Mike Julius

      You also have to consider that arresting and prosecuting Burns would
      scare anyone else being extorted into compliance with the blackmailer
      and the authorities would never know until maybe it escalated to
      violence.

      • Kevin

        But i don’t think that everybody who’s being extorted had done something illegal.

        • Mike Julius

          Well what dirt do you think most extortionists have? Much of what someone would blackmail someone else with is illegal.

          • Kevin

            Maybe a family secret that the person being extorted doesn’t want to get public.

  • NG212

    I said it on Twitter already, but I think Donald Burns helped destroy Sean Cody’s golden era by giving hot performers other income streams.

    The studio claims it didn’t know what was happening. It was undermined at every turn by a greedy superfan using his superior resources to poach their talent.

    In the end, it’s we who lost–the subscribers. We paid, we pined, we waited, and we wondered. We didn’t know Willis was fucking a log cabin queen as we pressed reload at midnight, and prayed for penis and paradise.

    • Kevin

      I just retweeted that.

    • steve adams

      When did the studio claim they didn’t know it was happening? I don’t remember reading that anywhere?

      • 1234

        A lot of us have to go on ‘educated’ guesses since all parties involved are being somewhat evasive.

    • n24rc

      Um. It isn’t rare for porn performers to get astronomical offers from wealthy people interested in fucking them. Both locally and internationally. Let’s face it – Don Burns wouldn’t be getting the ass he has without the money behind him.

      Excluding the bait and switch routine with certain “agents”… Special requests happens all the time. Randy Blue, Falcon, etc…all have talent that over the years were behind the scenes doing “special requests” on behalf of wealthier people who had resources to track them down. It is the norm. Sean Cody probably was under intense pressure to sale from the conglomerate that owns tube sites that pirate their videos. Also, over the years working and worring about a studio is taxing the owner probably was ready to retire.

    • Bob Bilbert

      Willis was actually on planetjockboy for a while. maybe that’s how DB got in contact with him.
      D.B. deserves to go to jail just as much as the other dudes do. And if SC was funneling these guys…….

    • Zachary Sire

      “The studio claims it didn’t know what was happening.”

      It’s a little more complicated than that. From what I understand, they did NOT know, at first. But, they eventually found out, and there was little they could do about it. Burns was a sort of “thorn in their side,” for lack of a better phrase. Obviously, they did want this old guy seducing their models away from them with more money. Eventually, all they could do was fire the performers who were helping Burns poach away the models. So yeah, it’s safe to assume that Burns was the reason why Willis, Aidan, Taylor, and Jarek, were all sent packing.

      • Bob Bilbert

        It’s possible that Willis just popped up on the site to get these offers. SC models get tons of exposure- even only doing a solo…

        • 1234

          Good observation. It never crossed my mind until you mentioned it (even for solos)

          • Benjam

            Yeah I think a lot of escorts who do porn think of it that way. Paid advertising.

          • 1234

            Come to think of it, SC’s Ryan (SC Fuller’s scene partner in 2009) mentioned something along those lines. Thanks.

        • erexshawn

          Willis did have a Rentboy profile for a while, so I imagine that his SC work was paid advertising, with SC paying him to advertise. he does have a very impressive dick….

        • Sask

          A type of free advertising, yes. Did anyone see the interview that Duckface recorded in which he asked each of the models of a group scene if they had done the scene for advertising their wares for their escorting activities? Most agreed this was the reason they were in the scene. The scene was recorded back in the days when scenes were only on DVDs and before any Duck “work” had been done and had that very popular boyish looking guy with the hairy chest who has since retired (can’t remember his name).

      • NG212

        Wow. I never before heard that the studio purged Burns-associated performers. That’s a ballsy move. Looking back, for the studio, it was a bit like amputating the leg to save the body. They got rid of those performers to regain control, but they’ve limped along ever since.

        As you know, tomorrow’s update will have Forrest fucking Blake. I like both of those guys, but they’re in heavy rotation and it’s tiresome. I know I’d rather have a Willis-Ashton pairing.

        • Kevin

          I’m so not looking forward to the next update, i want Jack back!

          • Mihcael Davies

            Is Jack done or nah? He hasn’t showed up in quite some time

          • Kevin

            I hope not.

          • 1234

            I wasn’t a big fan of Jack, but in all honesty, he may not be that interested in making porn. Could be as simple as that

        • Mike Julius

          Forrest and Blake? They’re gonna need two more if they plan to call the corners.

          • kkdd1

            It’s a old gay custom called PRAYING for dicks !

        • n24rc

          I think they should have sued the performers for giving up trade secrets to some outsider. I think giving your number to someone with good faith that they wouldn’t do anything to use it other than to call you, expecting discretion, is perfectly reasonable and commonplace.

      • NG212

        Anyway, thanks for the tea. It’s delicious.

        And this is exactly why there needs to be a recap post that outlines the sequence of events from as far back as possible. Maybe the trial will help you further flesh out the details.

        • Luca

          I’m sure Zach will make a grand post that summarizes all the facts and speculations one day or two before the trial.

      • sxg

        Yup! Clearly Jarek didn’t “run his course” in scenes it’s obvious he got let go because he got tangled up in this shit among other things I’m sure.

      • Benjam

        To be honest, if I had the money, I’d do the same thing as Burns. Not too much different than straight actors who constantly have fashion models on their arms or rockstars who fuck groupies. Yeah, yeah escorting is illegal, but its between 2 consenting adults. Blackmail/extortion is something else. #proharem lol

        • n24rc

          I think it is troubling that in essence the idea behind “porn” names is that they keep anonymity and protect the performers from predators. Clearly, it hasn’t worked in this instance when the performers trade numbers and information.

          • Myko

            Money talks though. Lets face it if you were a porn performer earned circa $700 a scene and some rich guy came along and offered your $1000 for a couple of hours of chit chat and a fuck, plus extra cash , dinners, presents etc etc – you wouldn’t turn it down.

          • n24rc

            You misunderstand what I’m saying: I could see this ONLY if they were to just blow you – that would have been a steal for the performers, and NOT hours at a time, more like 45 minutes. I wouldn’t stand to be around people like that for long. And if I wasn’t expected to give up INFO on other UNSUSPECTING people.

            However, this was something else – that they were strung along with gifts to stay around until either: a. they gave the information they had on other stars(WHICH MY POINT IS INHERENTLY WRONG and should be punishable by lawsuit), b. they bottomed(stupid fucks) and expected more “gifts” for doing so.

          • Mike Julius

            Especially considering your performance with moneybags wouldn’t be online forever whereas each scene you do for that 700 would be. The downside is, moneybags is old and probably smells like Fritos™ on a good day. The problem is, he also smells like 300 more per encounter and seems to support people even when he’s not having sex with them.

          • Myko

            The first bit is so true. I know an escort back in London, we worked for the same company together years ago, he has always turned down doing porn because he said escorting isn’t recorded anywhere , unlike porn which is recorded for a lifetime.

            I am pretty sure DB can afford a good aftershave 😉
            If i was an escort I would be happy to have DB as a regular – at least you know what you are getting plus the perks must be good.

            Turning up to a strangers house not knowing what the fuck is gonna happen each time – give me a regular rich client any day.

            As other escort friend said “Escorting isn’t easy money but its fast money”

          • Marcus Collack

            um no. One I could use my popularity and body to get plenty of legit work, that would pay 1,000 or more and not have to have my hole stretched, hell, what about stripping, modeling, with a fan base it wouldn’t be that hard.

          • 1234

            What a disaster, to say the least. I’m very certain none of these performers ever dreamt of SO much negative publicity.

      • n24rc

        what a bunch of “straight” whores.

      • Zealot

        URGH! One more reason to finish that Don Burns voodoo doll.

      • Luca

        I suppose Sean Cody was just ONE of the reservoirs of young boys that Burns had access to. I wonder how the connection actually started: just one model that got lucky and managed to have the contact of Burns, or if there was a “mole” within the technical team of the studio that begun the whole thing.

        And I am VERY curious about the identity of that Cooperating Witness, why he/she is so important to have the name withdrawn.

    • Kevin

      I don’t believe for a second that nobody at SC new about D.B. or that their models were escorting, i think that as long as the models did the escorting on the down low SC was fine with it. Austin Wilde tweeted on March 2 that he saw Tanner at a gay bar. On March 4 someone tweeted to him “those SC models are never going to talk to you and he replied “If you see them/SC models escorting at a gay bar like i did the other night they will”. It’s not all D.B.’s fault, Aidan is the one who put Jarek and Willis in to contact with the log cabin queen.

      • NG212

        Well, Zach outlined the sequence very well above.

    • 1234

      At the rate Sir Log Cabin was going, he could have opened his own porn studio.

    • CA

      Oh, I knew, many knew. I live in DC and NYC and I see “Willis” all about town at events with mature wealthy men. I think I mentioned on WB a few times that Willis was fully employed by several men I know.

      Follow the gay power players on IG and you will find the tightly connected web of SC and the escort crowd that bounces between the two.

  • NG212

    Am I the only one who thinks Stuart looks familiar?

    This “helping hand” situation is very informative. No wonder Ricky Decker/SC Arthur extolled Burns’s generosity. He financially supported his harem even when they weren’t actively fucking him.

    • Kevin

      It’s kinda sad that he had to pay them to spend any time with him, apart from the sex.

      • NG212

        I figure at this point, he’s used to paying for things. He’s probably too rich to care.

        • 1234

          Too rich…and most likely amoral

        • Dazzer

          The wisdom of multi-millionaires is: ‘If it floats, flies or fucks, hire it’.

          You never, ever buy an expensive commodity outright unless it will gain in value.

      • JohnnyVooDoo

        How is that sad…You honestly believe he could have won these hot ‘straight’ white guys over simply with personality and conversation…Of course it was going to take money. Look at how old this dude is. They probably wouldn’t even looks his way let alone talk to him without it.

    • DPS

      He looks too familiar not to be a part of the industry at least at that time. Searching for similar models on SC but so far nothing. He sort of looks like fitness model Rusty Joiner but that would not fit to the name in the video (Stuart).

    • 1234

      I need to get my eyes checked. Do you mean Stuart from SC 2011? Please tell me @what sequence in the video. Thanks

  • Bob Bilbert

    NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! NOT HAYDEN!!!!!!! WHY HAYDEN? WHY?!
    Fucking D.B. what a troll.

    • Bob Bilbert

      I wonder if they fucked him bareback… so gross, the thought of it- his saggy ass..

      • Odetofear

        it doesn’t matter when you’re a whore.

        • Bob Bilbert

          No….it does not.
          Yet another reason why I would be a terrible whore.

          • Odetofear

            I know. I think i’d be an ok whore. I like older guys, a bit of sag and fat doesn’t bother me. Burns’ face though…lights out situation

      • Luca

        Actually Burns is most probably the top

        • Bob Bilbert

          lol………………………………………………………………………………

          • Mike Julius

            Yeah, I mean, think about it. You yourself pointed out the sag situation. Imagine having to get it up and maintain it to give that a hot beef injection. Meanwhile, Burns can pop a pill and…

          • Luca

            unbelievable is it?!? and yet he seems to have reached those Sean Cody guys that are famous as bottoms for the site (with some exception as Jarek, who anyway told Burns tried to rape him, so it fits the story).

    • NG212

      I concur.

    • 1234

      It’s meaningless at this point, but Hayden P may have bottomed. According to another website, Willis had an old escort profile which stated that he prefered bottoming (this was when he lived in NY). That would be worse than HP having to fuck DB’s gaping hole.

  • Benjam

    Damn, where have I been; I didn’t know “Justin Matthews” worked for SeanCody before CockyBoys.

    Also, damn Jarec Wentworth knows how to fuck! I’ve never seen his work before, but I’m definitely about to educate myself……..excuse me. :)

    • NG212

      Yes, he was Taylor at SC. And I used to beg him (in absentia) to bottom. And he refused.

      He eventually ended up at CockyBoys, and now regularly bottoms–but it’s condom-only. He says he realized it feels better than he thought. I wonder if Burns was a teacher.

      • Zachary Sire

        ..

        • 1234

          I miss my Saved by the bell (and Tiffani)!

      • Kevin

        For some reason i think Don usually bottoms and he probably got spit roasted by the models.

        • Luca

          considering the models he tried to hire from Sean Cody are almost all famous for their bottoming scenes, I’d say the opposite, even if of course there must have been exceptions.

        • kevin

          after all the hamsters that have been up that hole, he can only feel big dicks!

      • GMan

        I wonder what Cockyboys has to say about this since one of their guys is involved in this now. Taylor/Justin is proving that money can buy anything by testifying on behalf of the “NEW DONALD”. Jerec has a serious hill to climb as with most cases involving people with deep pockets the one with the most money wins.

        • Benjam

          Taylor just did a cam for cockyboys and was part of the cockyboys group that attended the nyc pride parade, so either CB doesn’t know or doesn’t care.

          • Kevin

            They probably don’t care, studio’s usually don’t care what their models do in their private time.

          • robirob

            Would the Cockyboys be too edgy for Donald Burns (with their piercings and tattoos, and more slender body frames)? You’d think Jaxson would be quite paranoid after what happened with Jett Black when it comes to potentially disloyal employees / model.

          • Kevin

            Cockyboys released a scene with Justin today, i don’t think that’s a coincidence now that Justin is in the news.

          • kevin

            is justin gay or gay4pay? he seems gay imho

          • Benjam

            I think gay for pay, which I’ve never had a problem with.

  • Kevin

    How long will the trial last?

    • Zachary Sire

      4 or 5 days.

      • sxg

        Are you gonna run out of the courtroom with the verdict like the interns do when a verdict is reached by the Supreme Court?

  • beariac

    surely the ‘co-operating witness’ is Etienne Yim, who according to courthousenews.com: “Brank’s associate Etienne Yim was waiting in the parking lot in a Ford hatchback after Brank’s arrest, prosecutors say. He allegedly told agents that Brank had asked him to bring a gun to the meeting for protection. Agents found a Colt Magnum revolver, six rounds of ammunition and the Samsung smartphone Brank had used to make the alleged extortion demands, the affidavit states.”

    He’d have to be a key part of the government’s case, particularly because of the firearm and phone, and ‘co-operating’ because he got some sort of plea/immunity/’anonymity’ deal for his testimony.

    I’m still not ruling out a late plea deal as a likely outcome, however.

    • Mike Julius

      That is exactly what I was thinking! I think it’s Etienne.

      He’s been mentioned nowhere else in court filings yet he was involved at the bust. No way is he not testifying for someone.

  • Todd

    Zach (with scarf) in the courtroom.
    I really hope you get to write a book about this whole story. You’ve certainly put in the time.

  • James

    He just had a lot of friends that’s all.

  • James

    Oh and it must be nice to be able to run to the FBI after hiring all of those hookers(I mean escorts) without a single legal repercussion considered against you.

  • FooFight

    I bet that was quite the after dinner party with Willis in the mix.

  • Estelle
    • Kandel

      Talk about being under-dressed and out of place… Like, if the jon is well off enough to pay to buy you, he could at least rent you a fuckin’ suit, some slacks, or something… what is that like $100? Christ.

      • 1234

        At the bare minimum, he needed a button down shirt (judging from other people in pics)

      • robirob

        “Like, if the jon is well off enough to pay to buy you, he could at least rent you a fuckin’ suit, some slacks, or something…”

        Oh, that Jon (Snow), he knows nothing.

    • robirob

      Ah, newyorksocialdiary. The good ol’ Datalounge message board dedicated threads after threads and vicious commentary to each and every new newyorksocialdiary post a very long time ago. Looking at the linked page, wow, times have changed. Most of the older women (and some of the men) no longer look like their faces are melting and more hot guys attend he events.

      Will looks like a barback helping out at the party (behind the scenes) and getting asked to pose in a group shot. So random.

    • Mike Julius

      That Bobby Steinsdorfer guy is pretty hot.

  • Zealot

    When preparing to be the shocking surprise witness at a highly-publicized trial, dame fashion states– “A suit and large statement hat (preferably with a veil) is DE RIGUEUR”.

      cute

  • Sask

    Congratulations to Zach for being the super sleuth in this tragic saga of lust and money. “Justin Taylor” apparently bottomed for Alex Mecum in Alex’s debut M/M action scene at CockyBoys according to the blogs. A bit of a step up from DB. Will Alex be approached by the super Troll. Love the gifs.

  • Myko

    Winner winner Chicken (well lobster) dinner !

    You have to give DB a round of applause. He was able to get some hot guys, and a regular conveyor belt of fresh talent. .

    Didnt SC ban their performers from escorting? I doubt the performers were intelligent enough to hide their sudden increase in “wealth” SC must have realised when their performers were turning up in nice clothes, expensive watches etc.

    Perhaps it was part of DB’s plans to set up a porn company – picking off the best performers is a sure fire way to make a porn company successful and attract other hot guys.

    DB looked pretty hot in that video.. just saying.

    Zach can we have a pre trial post with a complete timeline/guide to the case ? Thanking you in advance :-)

    • Mike Julius

      They probably put the ban in place after DB started poisoning their talent pool. So other Johns can probably blame him for lack of availability.

  • andrew

    No wonder DB was into Jarek. Check out that first pic of Jarek with hands behind his head: great face, guns, pits, abs and cock. Smokin hot!

  • It really does beg the question why they aren’t slinging Mr Burns in jail for solicitation? Ok, it’s not as bad as extortion, but it feels like the rich white guy is coated in Teflon at this point. Quelle Surprise!

    • Mike Julius

      You also have to consider that arresting and prosecuting Burns would scare anyone else being extorted into compliance with the blackmailer and the authorities would never know until maybe it escalated to violence.

  • kkdd1

    Why is FUCK FACE Burns getting a free ride in all this SHIT? when he should be getting locked up like in other GAY john

    • steve adams

      Wouldn’t say he is getting a free ride, his name an reputation has been ruined as a result of this. Also it takes two to tango — what about charging all the SC models who participated? Also based on the large number of posters who said they would do the same is they had the dough, why criminalize him for this? I know he is a Repugnican but that’s beside the point.

      • John Iii

        Agreed and the reality is that extortion of the sums being talked about here is in a far different class of criminal activity. Generally that’s a misdemeanor vs a hard core felloney charge. It’s extremely normal in a situation like this that the lesser crime is overlooked for corporation to prosecute the alleged felon. He’s not getting particularly special treatment in that regard.

        I have no issue with his party affiliation and I believe that he is a prime example of that old saying MONEY talks and BULLSHITTER go to jail !!!

    • Mike Julius

      You have to consider that arresting and prosecuting Burns would
      scare anyone else being extorted into compliance with the blackmailer
      and the authorities would never know until maybe it escalated to
      violence.

        Do you not think that FUCK FACE Burns did not use his money to get these guys to do what they probably would not have done ? Do you think that he did not BLACKMAIL these guys with expensive gifts ? I have no doubt in my mind that Jerec is a BLACKMAILER as I have know doubt in my mind that one BLACKMAILER just got done in by another like I stated ( in response to Steve Adams ) Money talks and BULLSHITTER aka Jarec Wentworth just go to jail

          Don’t use words you don’t know the meaning of. That is not blackmail. What you are describing is bribery. What Teofil did is blackmail.

    Wonder if this thing with Donald got to do with the decision of ‘Sean Cody’ to sell his site to MEN? Probably he is somewhere somehow involved or this thing we are seeing is just tip of the iceberg and much worse is going to be revealed of which ‘Sean Cody’ don’t want to be involved.

    Ir’s never been a big secret that at least half ( probably well more than that) use porn as a way to further their escorting business. It just goes with the territory. Got the cash you can make your fantasy come true with most of the dudes you lust after on SC

    I’ve said this before and I’ll probably say this again.

    As a professional journalist, I truly love the way Zach has kept on top of this story.

    I know people diminish Sire because he works in porn, but this is really beautiful journalism.

    He knows what the story is, he knows the facts he needs and he never releases a post until he can back it up with documentation.

    This is journalism 101 excellence.

    Non-journalists won’t understand this, but by this stage in writing anything, Sire will have to re-read so many notes to understand both the story and the legality of anything he writes. It’s gone beyond the level where he can keep everything in his head and just write whatever he wants.

    At this stage – even with First Amendment considerations – the Prosecution or Defense can come after him with subpoenas to see what he knows. I don’t think either case would win (going on what far more informed American lawyers have written), but they could make his life really difficult (and expensive).

    One of my jobs is teaching journalism ethics in London, and if this weren’t a gay porn blog, I’d be using Str8upgayporn as a masterclass in how one reacts to a story as an ethical journalist.

    I know some people think I’m a toady to Sire who will love anything he does. But that’s not the case. Thirty years ago people would have had to pay to pick up a newspaper to read this kind of quality investigation and writing. These days we get it for free on the internet.

    The reason I’m writing this is because I still hold a grudge against all those mini-dicked inadequacies who attacked Sire over the whole QueerMeNow story.

    To all those people: FUCK YOU AND FUCK YOU BADLY

    You’re not horrified by any ethical lapse or moral wrong-doing, you’re scared rigid that a proper journalist might look at you with a critical eye.

    And that’s why I’ve said something similar in the past – and will continue to make the point in the future.

    Zachary Sire is a better investigative journalist than you’re going to find on WashPo or the NYT.

    And, as consumers of gay porn, we’re incredibly lucky to have him.

      Wow that’s a glowing review, and I can’t say that I disagree!

    • Benjam

      Jeez, how did Zach manage to take a shit this morning with you being so far up his ass and all. LOL j/k, j/k :)

      • Dazzer

        I got the joke and I laughed. Also, I’m going to steal it and use it elsewhere because it’s a damn funny line (I’ll give the credit to you, though, obvs…).

        Sask (above) made me think and you made me laugh. Both are proper responses when my verbose pomposity gets the better of me.

        So thank you Benjamin and thank you Sask. (Also Mike Julius and Steve Adams).

        I deserved those comments and am grateful that you made them.

        • Benjam

          Welcome. No harm intended, just some nice ribbing. Glad you took it the way you did.

    • Sask

      Give the guy a break! If he’s that good he should have passed Journalism 501 and be graduated.

      I tend to agree with you (but it doesn’t matter because I’m not a journalist) and I wrote a post about the peculiar timing of the so-called Free Speech Coalition bleating about protecting the identities of people in the porn industry, even though such people accept awards publicly, put up pictures of themselves in the Book of Faces, and tweet shit regularly.

  • John

    I hope Jarek has a competent lawyer and takes it to that slimy DB…fucking republican that pays for sex with gay boys….bunch of fucking hypocrites

    • John Iii

      J got himself in the mess being too greedy so i don’t feel sorry for him a bit.

      • John

        No i dont feel sorry for him, I just see their are two slim balls in this mess and not fair for only one to have to pay….J was stupid for being greedy but Burns was clearly exploiting him

    • Sask

      Doesn’t TeoJ claim to be str8 with a GF who has featured in some of these posts? The so-called G4Payers just got caught out doin somthin unnatcherel. Who is the hypocrite?

      • John

        Burns is the hypocrite for giving money to guys who hate gays….J is just making a buck

        • John Iii

          John you need to get over it. It’s not hard to understand that there is a huge difference between making a buck and trying to extort large amounts of money. The reality here is the evidence is pretty air tight ihere if they won’t even issue bail release. Burns is a jerk i won’t dispute that for a second. But that does not change the fact of greed went to extortion here.

        • kevin

          From what I can tell Burns is trying to change things within his party, to get it out of the hands of religious whackos.

  • steve adams

    Does the trial start on Monday… I can’t remember. When Zack reported on it it seemed so far off!

  • John Iii

    Well he’s got the versatile gay sex thing down obviously, so he should be quite popular in the slammer. He was one of my Fav’s on SC. He may be a crook but the dude is great at sex. Bad boys usually are for some reason.

  • kevin

    If I were Teo’s lawyer, I’d advise pleading out for a few years and then agree to be deported back to whatever Eastern Block cesspool he crawled out of as an undesirable alien. He’ll end up fighting for Putin in Eastern Ukraine.
