It’s that time of year again: For the second year in a row, Str8UpGayPorn presents the 2nd Annual Str8ie Awards for 2014′s Best Gay Porn Star!

Last year’s winner was Connor Kline (who immediately retired right after winning—I hope this award isn’t cursed!), so who will take home the gay porn industry’s most prestigious trophy this year? It’s 100% up to you. Like last year, the Str8ie winner will be determined solely by fan voting, and like last year, there will be 10 nominees. Also like last year? One of the 10 nominees this year is Falcon exclusive Ryan Rose.

Ryan Rose is the first nominee in the Str8ie Awards contest for 2014’s Best Gay Porn Star, but stay tuned, because nine more gay porn star nominees will be unveiled as we head towards the end of the year. Then, all 10 will face off in one round of fan voting to determine 2014’s Best Gay Porn Star.

Here is a look back at nominee #1, Ryan Rose, in some of his best Falcon scenes from 2014, concluding with his latest, Easy Inn, where he gives Chris Bines the fuck of his life. Before that, Ryan Rose flip-fucked with Landon Conrad, made Nick Sterling spontaneously cum while fucking him, and proved to be the most versatile performer of the year in both a Str8Up poll and at the Grabbys, where he actually won the Best Versatile award.

Ryan Rose’s flawless body of work (and flawless body) made him an obvious Str8ie Award nominee, but is Ryan Rose 2014’s Best Gay Porn Star?

  • Hi Presley

    Give it to him. Let a str8 guy win for once

    • zach

      Huh?

      • n24rc

        well, considering his views, he could easily be confused for straight. lolz

        • Mihcael Davies

          How? Isn’t he gay but slightly bi. When did he ever call himself straight??

        • andrew

          Not all gays are left wing democrats like me. We don’t all think alike or act alike.

    • Ex-Porner

      Not the least bit straight.

    • http://twitter.com/seaguy11 Seaguy

      Are you striaght or ashamed of being gay or something?

      • Hi Presley

        It’s a joke. Some comments should not be taken literally

  • moondoggy

    Ryan Rose, no. Pierce, yes.

    • GN

      Agreed–Same goes for Jarek/Jarec Wentworth.

  • Todd

    I’m scared that if I say no, Ryan will beat the shit out of me !!!

    • andrew

      Let it go. Have you ever done something bad?

  • sxg

    I definitely think the nomination is well deserved. He’s a handsome guy and he is versatile. TBH I can’t remember a scene from him that really stood out this year. I know I’ve jerked off to him, but that’s as far as my memory of his year in porn goes. So for now, he’s not the best. I have an idea of some of the people you will nominate, and I definitely think there has been better out there.

  • DeanD

    At first while I was scrolling through this post I said “He’s got a great body but I don’t think I’ve ever seen any of his scenes,” then I got to the Nick Sterling/Rose pics and remembered, yes, I have seen his work and that scene was sleep inducing. I don’t blame that on Ryan though because I’ve watched a few Sterling scenes and, is he G4P? That’s the only thing I can think of because his scenes are so bland. Enough to get the job done, I guess, but not hot, which is a shame because he too has a great body. As far as Ryan Rose, he makes for a strong contender off looks alone.

    • sxg

      Nick Sterling’s best work so far is all at Randy Blue. I’m not sure what’s up with him these days. I know towards the last half at RB when he cammed he always came across as moody and/or depressed. This “woe is me” character got bland really fast.

      And if you have ever seen the BTS of him from his first solo scene to the last one filmed at RB, it came across on there as well. I’m not sure if they’re available to see on YouTube anymore. Their newer YT account was deleted for I guess adult content, which was crazy because those BTS never showed nudity. Their older one is still around, but I don’t believe any of Nick’s BTS is on that account.

      • n24rc

        He is/was an English major. Not a lot of job prospects out there for that. Unfortunately, our education system is too expensive, and he has no job prospects except sex work. It is terrible to be young nowadays, because there are no jobs out there for people.

        • BlogZilla

          English majors get jobs as English teachers, right? And he can teach English abroad.

  • DC

    Ick. This guy is the worst. He gets way too much attention on this blog.

    • n24rc

      Some of it isn’t good attention, considering his repub views and racist antics.

  • Porn Star

    From a behind the scenes perspective, Ryan is one of the most professional, do what it takes performer. He follows direction better than most and really sets out to put on a show. He deserves it.

    • Iain Gardener

      I think that is an overlooked aspect of a performers work, are they professional, and do they give an A+ performance, I really appreciate your input Porn Star

    • andrew

      Thanks for that behind the scenes look at Ryan.

  • n24rc

    I guess Zach and Ryan kissed and made up.

  • https://twitter.com/ElitistEvan Elitist

    I only want him to win if the curse is real and it’s 100% guaranteed that he’ll retire afterwards.

  • Alan Keddie

    Hubba hubba! Hummina hummina hummina!! Shaawiing!!!

  • mtxb2010

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO and NO

    • mtxb2010

      so I vote no, no he is not… no

      no

    • andrew

      SORRY: YES IS THE CORRECT ANSWER.

  • Alan

    It’s always so difficult to evaluate a model who has only worked with one or two companies, especially if I don’t find said studio’s scenes appealing. I quite liked ‘Pierce’ at Sean Cody, but for the last several years, I’ve found that when I watch a Falcon scene, I’m yawning within the first minute, Ryan’s scenes not excluded… It would be helpful if Ryan’s recently-filmed scene(s) with Naked Sword will be out before we can vote, but otherwise Ryan’s big downside in my book is that he is a Falcon exclusive!

    • BlogZilla

      They were, are a big yawn because they are too vanilla and homogenous

  • Alan Keddie

    Ryan’s ass is transcendent. Groin grabbingly transcendent. A men! That gif of him (he?) and Landon is quite brilliant.

  • Sashenka Sasha

    I really like his body…but his face is like…mmm NO

    • BlogZilla

      He looks way better with a beard

  • This Me

    Let’s ask Bobby Hart.

  • A.C.

    I was not aware of who Ryan Rose was until the news of the unfortunate circumstances surrounding his relationship to his former boyfriend surfaced. Despite the disgust I had for his behavior and the concern I had for his boyfriend’s welfare, after a year I decided to revisit his body of work. I grant that the work that he did pre-Falcon was entertaining but I have to admit that his Falcon Studios work has been altogether disappointing. His scenes are terribly lackluster and the take away is that he is “working” at having sex. At least his pre-Falcon work showed him uninhibited, as if he enjoyed the experience despite the fact that he was performing. He strikes me as the type that enjoys having sex, certainly, but not someone who is necessarily apt to “performing” the act. That could be a function of Falcon’s “cinematic” approach as well. Falcon’s work is often highly stylized; relying too often on the perfected look of the performer than eliciting a truly entertaining performance. In that regard I can hardly blame Ryan Rose for his performances.

    Though I visit Papithugz, Dawgpound, Taggaz, (and sites of the like) almost exclusively (though I wish we could see more Arab and non-white Latinos in the business. I so enjoy Dale Cooper Arad and Mr. Habib but they cannot be the only ones), because they show case the men that I find appealing, Ryan Rose is on a very short list of performers not affiliated with those sites (or sites of the like) that I find undeniably appealing. On performance alone though he should not win, unfortunately.

    • Odetofear

      Taggaz showcases the most beautiful Black men i’ve ever seen and they’re videos are so damn hot. I can’t understand why bigger studios haven’t contacted some of their models. I wonder if they’re like SC models, where they like to exclusively working for one site and don’t promote themselves in the porn industry thereby keeping porn work on the dl?

      • A.C.

        Yes, the black men on that site are well, in a word, AMEN!

    • BlogZilla

      Duh, these are people who get paid to have sex constantly. Don’t you think you’d get tired of it after awhile? Unless you’re a hypersexed uber slut like Blake Harper

      • A.C.

        I am not sure that your presumption is as much a foregone conclusion as you would like to think. They have sex relatively frequently, not constantly or even consistently, but as demand dictates. I believe that what wears on them is the mechanics of pornography and not sex itself. Having to contort themselves into positions that are often unnatural of foreign to them, performing with performers who are attractive to their respective fans but often not attractive to them, and having to dramatize another person’s vision of sex, can, I am sure, lead to a bit of career fatigue to put it mildly. Left to spontaneously develop their own scenes I am sure that they would be regularly enthusiastic and fulfilled in their careers. I do not know who Blake Harper is so I will not comment on his sexual appetites. I am fairly certain though that Ryan Rose has a healthy libido, he just has not found an outfit that is capable of helping him to create a great scene. That said, he is still viciously stunning.

        • BlogZilla

          I’ve been a porn actor, and it’s feels no different than making a movie. You’ve got 15 people standing around you whether it’s the boom operator, director, light operator, camera man, caterer. And they’re all waiting for lunch. The fluffer notion is a myth. They don’t need fluffers. They fluff themselves. You are expected to get an erection on command, and many of those directors and photographers are arrogant assholes

          I guess what I’m trying to say, is it’s work! The only sex that feels like sex while you’re making porn is the stuff that goes on behind the scenes that the camera doesn’t record.

  • http://gaypornrecaps.blogspot.com Porn Pup

    I don’t know who this is and I don’t respond to him.

    • BlogZilla

      I don’t get it either. I guess he’s just not my type. I don’t like men with such bulky frames. They just look too exaggerated and unnatural. Steroids anyone?

  • Ex-Porner

    I’ve always had a hard time reconciling the “two different Ryan Rose’s.” I always hear horrible things (Phoenix Forum, etc.), but he’s always as pleasant as can be in person, even when drinking.

    • n24rc

      It’s because he is a bitter person. How can you be cheery all the time, when you do sex work? Yea, it leads to good sex, but that is apparently rare.

      To his credit, whatever cash he scrapes by, he does invest it in a future…which is good. But he gets territorial over it and becomes a raging loony when someone mentions taxes. God forbid he ends up on welfare or social security himself, because he gets sick.

      • BlogZilla

        I get looney over taxes too. It’s nothing but legalized highway robbery

  • andrew

    He would be at or near the top of my list. He is a beautiful guy with tons of muscles, a plump ass and a big cock. He is a great performer as a top or bottom. Yep, LOVE RYAN.

  • http://twitter.com/seaguy11 Seaguy

    Ryan’s hot and all but I would not call him the best porn star of 2014. Where’s all the haters going after him like they do Sebastian Young he beat up Bobby Hart pretty badly at the Phoenix forum a couple years ago. He seems to get a free pass on that. Double standard?

    • andrew

      “a couple of years ago” Let it go, unless you have evidence that he is a serial abuser. Double Standard? Are you saying that we criticize the Gay4pay guy and give the Gay guy a pass?

      • http://twitter.com/seaguy11 Seaguy

        Kinda hard to let domestic violence go when I see the pics of Bobby looking like he has the shit beat out of him. And yes I was saying that in regards to the double standard. Anytime something about Sebastian Young is posted his years ago incidents are brought up incessantly, and no pictures of the victim have ever surfaced to my knowledge. But with Ryan we had pics which is evidence of the severity of the incident. Yet not a peep about his domestic violence from the past. I am not even caring if they are straight, gay4pay, or gay it is domestic violence and as someone who witnessed it growing up I find it very disturbing so when I see one guy getting it rubbed in his face as often as the haters can but another get’s a pass I find that kind of hypocritical of the haters. And if Ryan get’s the pass because he is gay that is even worse because gay domestic violence occurs but is not often talked about and does not get the attention it should, leaving victims feeling helpless.

  • BlogZilla

    Looks like Claudio Antonelli

  • theo

    The porn equivalent of Chris Brown being nominated for a Grammy.

  • Alan Keddie

    Well I’d say that the search is over… But that would be a lie. Ry-Ro is hot tho.

  • Casey Scott

    No. According to my calculations, he has done 2 great scenes this year. Not even in the top 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 porn stars of this year.

  • Ricky

    Definitely Ryan Rose – he is very handsome and is unique – even porn star Diesel Washington likes him, and that bitch hates everybody!

  • pepper young

    Ryan Rose is amazing, gorgeous, riveting, smart, hard-working and a little bit scary. He gets my vote.
