Sean Cody’s “Noel”—And His Mom!—Speak Out Against High School Suspension

Posted January 21, 2014 by with 67 comments

seancody_noel_suspendedAs you probably heard over the weekend, a Florida high school student was alleged to have been suspended after students and administrators discovered his off-campus work as a Sean Cody model (watch all his movie trailers here). I had no plans to cover the story until or unless it could be confirmed by Sean Cody’s “Noel” himself (up until yesterday, the only source was an anonymous poster on Reddit), but now he’s come forward to local media in Florida, with his mom!

Noel/Robert quite obviously did nothing wrong, and hopefully with all the coverage this story is now getting, the school will reverse its decision. [UPDATE: The school has lifted the suspension and allowed Robert to return to class.]

[Sean Cody: Noel]

I don’t think I need to point out how hot he is, do I?

131719For me, Noel was the highlight in Sean Cody’s recent “Mountain Getaway” bareback orgy. And now knowing that he did it all for mom brings a tear to my eye!

    How are “credible allegations” even defined in the first place if Noel was sent home from school, missing classes pending an investigation? Why didn’t they do their investigation first and then act upon the facts discovered? This is simply a case of uneducated educators responding to their own misguided homophobia and personal societal judgements.

    • zach

      Yeah, but on the bright side, at least they realized what they did was wrong and are letting him back.

      • JoshChicago

        Yup. at least.

    • robirob

      It’s the typical ‘shoot first ask questions later’.

      I read some of the judgemental posts on sites like queerty and Datalounge that ‘Noel’ pretty much deserved the suspension for doing porn and not thinking about the moral consequences and his poor judgement gives society no other choice but to cast him out. And I was. like, WTF? He did gay porn (and as it turns out to help out financially at home – and now posters judge the mother for allegedly pimping out her son!) not murder someone or vote against gay people’s rights!

      And I cannot help but think that some of these posts come from people who rub their dicks raw while watching his porn clips.

    • Aramis

      What investigations were necessary in a case like this ? They had their opinions about porn, gay porn, bareback gay porn…They don’t clap hands for it so they acted, Is your opinion the only one that worth to be called that way: ‘ Opinion ‘? Are the opinion of others ( Do you know them to call them ‘ uneducated ‘? ) really misguided homofobia ( Are you sure? ) and personal societal judgements. The last one is a very wise concept: If you, me, all human beings are alive we make ‘ personal societal judgements ‘. I can’t accept that only because someone has 18 y. o. he is already made as an adult. This is a story of a 18y. o. that was through prostitution with the ‘ help ‘ of SC…I ask all of you to watch his SC’s vídeos to see what ‘work’ a 18 y.o. do there and them make your own ” personal societal judgement “.

      • Aramis

        * then

        • ICumToNoel

          There are like 20 grammatical errors in your post, Aramis, lol. What the actual fuck.

      • JoshChicago

        When someones personal opinions of other people allow them to remove kids from school and force them to miss classes and fall behind other students while they are away, before any type of investigation is actioned to determine the facts – Then that needs to change. And if you support or condone such behavior – then shame on you.

  • NG212

    I’ve been following this story from the beginning and I’m thrilled at the way it’s reconciling. How wonderful many of his peers were for supporting him–making room for outside pressure. Best of luck to Robert (there’s a rumor he’s going to Army basic training this summer). And best of luck to Noel, who hopefully still has a bright career at Sean Cody. They should give this guy a bonus. Everyone on Gawker and Reddit were going to SC, and many had never heard of it before. Wouldn’t be surprised if they got new customers out of this.

    • Estelle

      Army basic training may not be an option for him now. If his claims are true that he was doing porn to help out his family, I doubt you will see him back and frankly I hope he doesn’t come back since it wasn’t exactly on good terms that he went in. He will be asked questions about this for the many years to come, and perhaps the rest of his life as it will be the top thing that comes up on a search engine when his name is plugged in. Sorry but it’s very seedy to shoot a kid that is still in high school. There may not be a legal issue with it , but there is IMO an ethical issue with it and Sean Cody at the very least should have held off on shooting him until after he graduated.
      Surprisingly some companies are starting to initiate a 21 and over policy to shoot talent.

      • Viva La Bambi

        It was obviously legal, but it does feel unethical, as he was in a vulnerable situation making the decision. And I don’t like the idea of jerking off to high schoolers. Was the kid doing homework on his way to the shoot? Oh well, I guess it’s daddies for me from now on.

        • Face Palm

          I’m sure he at least needed mom to sign a permission slip for the Mountain Getaway.

          • Jay

            And I’m just as sure sure he didn’t.

        • Jay

          Such half-baked thinking.

          You carry on as though Noel was an employee of SeanCody.com, who worked there M-F 9-5 and drove to the Sean Cody’s office daily.

          No. Noel was not commuting to the shoots. Sean Cody films in San Diego. Noel lives in Florida!

          Nor was Noel an employee of Sean Cody. He was an independent contractor, who chose to perform in 4 Sean Cody videos released between Oct. 9, 2013 and Dec. 10, 2013. No one twisted Noel’s arm. And if you watch his vids, he clearly enjoyed doing them! Noel could have stopped after the 1st video (for which he was paid $1900), or the 2nd (for which he was paid $3000), or the 3rd (for which he was paid $3500). But no, he went on to do a 4th (for which he was paid $4000). For about 5 days work, he was paid over $12,000.

          What jobs pay as much is so little time to someone without a college degree or high school diploma?

          What difference does it make that Noel was in high school when he did these vids? Many of the guys that do porn are enrolled in school! Some use their porn earnings to pay their school expenses. But according to your melodramatic way of thinking, anyone who does porn while enrolled in school is “in a vulnerable situation,” and therefore should not be allowed to do porn.

          • Estelle

            I’m still loling about what you think he got paid and the fact that you just know he was obviously enjoying it. Hours and hours of editing.

          • Jay

            Miss Thing, Noel’s pleasure is evident from his comments during interviews. And I’m still “loling” (such childish Internet jargon) that you “just know” that this was “obviously” the result of editing. I suppose you think they edited out the parts where he said he hated it. Per a former SC model, the (non-negotiable) pay schedule for SC performers is: $1500 for solo, $400 exclusivity, $3000 for 1st duo, $3500 for 2nd duo, $4000 for 3rd duo, $4500 for 4th duo; $5000 for each subsequent duo.

  • pangelboy

    Glad everything turned out ok for Robert.

  • Ale Lisboa

    that is resolved well. I’m happy for him!

    He’s a charming, I am an active member of SC for some time, this guy is one of the new models that I love.

  • Doktor Avalanche

    Zach….I love your sense of humor in general, but your comment at the end of the post was really not funny and was unworthy of you. These people comes across as truly honorable people, and neither you nor I know the financial realities of their household. I don’t believe that “Noel” was in any way an unwilling participant and certainly he seemed to really be enjoying himself (as he should have been!). But it’s unfair to suggest that a significant source of the motivation was because his family needed the money and he in fact did do it also to help his mom out–while also enjoying what he was doing. I give a total salute to these people, because they are completely in the right and none of this should be happening to any of them. And rather than slithering away “embarrassed,” they’re standing up saying, HELL NO! How can gay people, of anyone in the world, not respect people for standing up for being themselves?

    • zach

      Huh? Please don’t comment if you don’t know what you’re talking about, or I’ll have to delete your posts in the future. The mom says that he did porn to help the family.

      • Doktor Avalanche

        It’s funny how the accidental omission of a single word can completely change the meaning of what one is trying to say. What I was TRYING to say (and I’ll highlight the omitted word in caps) is this: “But it’s unfair to suggest that a significant source of the motivation was NOT because his family needed the money…” Your comment, which I thought was really not coming from the best part of your self, was: “And now knowing that he did it all for mom brings a tear to my eye!” My guess is, in fact, they needed the money badly, and he thought of a way to get the family the money they needed while also doing something that he wanted to do. His mother’s comments on the news report were beyond moving to me. I think it’s great that he’s standing up for himself and not being “shamed” in the body of “public morals” in their community. Good for him–and her! And I think our publicly supporting them is the kind and right thing to do. That was my only point. On a purely human level, there’s no need to kick people when they’re down and struggling to get up. That was what I was trying to say.

        • zach

          Uhhh, ok. But no one here is kicking anyone while they’re down. Weird.

          • pup striker

            I didn’t see anything wrong with the comment. Almost anybody doing porn is doing it because they enjoy it. The money that comes with it is not the only reason anyone does it.

          • sxg

            lol no. The majority of G4P/”bi” performers definitely go into the industry for the money. They may enjoy doing it after time goes on, but to them it’s just another job that they go in, do their work, get paid, and leave.

            Gay pornstars that are gay, however, are just as likely to get into it for the money, but they also get in it for the curiosity of doing it, and enjoy it and eat up the gay porn lifestyle.

          • pup striker

            I never said they don’t do it for the Money. Just said “the money that comes with it is not the only reason”. Personally I do it because I enjoy it and use the money as extra incentive.

          • Dean

            Okay, you’re not “almost anybody”.

          • Jay

            If you watch Noel’s vids on SeanCody.com, he clearly enjoyed doing them. And he’s already been paid over $12,000 for the 4 vids released between Oct. 2013 and Dec. 2013. I estimate that it was about 5 days work. He was paid very well for a job that he enjoyed. How many people can say that?

  • Jordi Lim33

    If he’s not gay, then there wasn’t any points to talk about this issue.

    • zach

      This is your last warning. One more and you’re banned.

      • Jordi Lim33

        are you crazy there wasnt anything wrong in what I’ve said? It’s my opinion ok. Parang bayaran ka na rin.

  • sxg

    Noel is the highlight of the orgy??? I actually thought the whole Mountain Getaway series was fine the way it was, and didn’t understand the need for him to come in halfway to the end. He’s got a nice little body but definitely nothing special, and I found all the other guys WAY hotter than him!

    • zach

      Yes! He has the biggest dick of all of them and was the best top who really got into it–especially in the orgy.

      • sxg

        Agree to disagree on this one buddy!

  • sxg

    As far as this whole incident goes, I put more blame on Sean Cody than Robert/Noel. Yes Noel was completely of age to pursue a career in porn, HOWEVER I think SC should have passed on hiring him because he was still a student in grade school. I’m guessing that SC might have just made an exception due to Noel’s need an reason for the money. I think getting into porn to help out his mother is a very noble cause and not one that we hear too often about. Chris Rockway is another pornstar that got into porn to financially help his mother as well. I may not be fond of his performances he’s done the last few years, but I will always have respect for him for doing that for his mother.

    • Aramis

      Chris Rockway was a protagonist of a campaing to rise money for an allegedly surgery. He even said/wrote:’ I may not walk again ‘ ( or something…) to encourage people to donate. This story/campaing had an odd end. No one knows nothing about that said surgery… ( I never saw the scar… or how was the postoperative time ). The donation campaing was closed quickly after blogs commented about it ). Should we believe he went to porn to help his mom too?

      • sxg

        I saw the scars he showed them to us on cam. They were pretty healed, but you noticed that there was a whole mess back there. I think he did egg on the surgery a bit for that gofundme or whatever the site was, but I think it was genuine.

        I just personally think with all the money he made doing porn he could have at least set some aside for emergency cases such as this one.

        BTW Marco Rubi is about to have a back surgery that sounds similar to Chris Rockway’s this week. He’ll be out for 6 months.

        • Aramis

          Well, if you saw the scar…I also remember people speculating in those days about his move from Oklahoma (?) to L.A. and saying the money would be used to keep him in L.A. but if the scar was in his back, he went to surgery for sure,

          • J2

            I did wonder about it. He had that kickstarter page, people said it was hogwash, then he abruptly closed it and said he’d got the money elsewhere and posted a photo of himself in a hospital gown. He didn’t look very grey around the gills for someone who’d just had an operation and I thought it would be easy to take a photo like that if he knew someone who worked in a hospital.

            But if there were scars, there were scars. They weren’t stick-on joke shop ones I assume.

          • sxg

            He took the kickstarter page because of the negative feedback he received. I remember saying some pretty harsh things myself too which I slightly regret. Still, if he was making so much from porn that he could help his mom out financially and himself as well, I would think that it would be a smart choice to get health insurance.

          • The Mouse

            Most porn stars either snort their earnings or spend it on hookers (either male or female), so why would you think they’d get health insurance?! I like porn but let’s face it: sane people don’t go into porn.

    • J2

      Jason Crystal got into porn to help with his mom’s imaginary cancer.

      • sxg

        lol oh him. He was a shady fucker who apparently stole from the studios he was working with, on top of whatever he got paid to do a terrible performance of course.

    • Jay

      What difference does it make why Noel did porn? Why does he have to justify it with a noble motive? He doesn’t need your respect.

      Noel wasn’t an employee of Sean Cody. He was an independent contractor, who chose to perform in 4 Sean Cody videos released between Oct. 9, 2013 and Dec. 10, 2013. No one twisted Noel’s arm. And if you watch his vids, he clearly enjoyed doing them! Noel could have stopped after the 1st video (for which he was paid $1900), or the 2nd (for which he was
      paid $3000), or the 3rd (for which he was paid $3500). But no, he went on to do a 4th (for which he was paid $4000). For about 5 days work, he was paid over $12,000. (And I already told you where I got the pay schedule, so don’t ask again.)

  • GN

    Ugh I would love to pound him senseless…That scene where SC’s Jordan was balls deep inside of him, that’s one of the hottest things I’ve seen in ages.

  • NG212

    Obviously everyone has different views on the decision Robert made, and Sean Cody’s decision to hire him, but hopefully we all agree Robert should not be penalized for the decision. I get people being a bit squeamish about the fact he’s still in high school, and perhaps it’s because some of you are in a different generation, so it makes him sound like a baby. But I’m in my early 20s, so he’s in my age range. I’m more disturbed when I see a 19 year old chick working as a “model” and banging a 40 year old movie star. I’m looking at you, Bradley Cooper (although Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black could also work). I just think, a few years ago, the young person was a kid, and the older one was still middle-aged.

    My point: Robert is old enough to vote, he’s old enough to die for his country in battle, he’s old enough to have sex with any adult he chooses to, and he’s old enough to perform in porn. I have never before heard a serious argument that all porn actors should be over the age of 18. In fact, Sean Cody has hired 18 year old models in the past. There was no uproar. Why should Robert’s education status matter? Would anyone care if he was exactly the same age, but dropped out of high school last year, and worked at a Shellfish Shack?

    • Estelle

      You also don’t have to face the consequences that he does. Most 18 year olds don’t think that far ahead as far as what consequences doing porn might have on their future. Nor do many 18 year olds think about what getting your leg blown off at 18 and being on meds for PTSD for the rest of your life after a tour of duty. That argument doesn’t fly. A 28 year old and an 18 year old are legally both adults, but the 28 year old will most likely make better choices and be able to have perspective that a kid who didn’t even have a drivers license 3 years before didn’t.

      That 19 year old model is 22, has a pile of money in the bank, can fuck and do what she wants, and grew up in privilege . Tom Daley has the world at his feet and has unlimited opportunity. The flaw in using these people to boost your argument is that they have almost unlimited choices. This kid didn’t and may have even less now.

      • NG212

        What you’re arguing is that 18 year olds aren’t mature enough to make well-reasoned decisions for themselves. If that’s how you feel, there’s nothing wrong with that. But it does beg a larger question. That is, if 18 year olds are not sufficiently mature to give their consent to military service or legal sex work, what are they mature enough to decide? Should 18 year olds be allowed to drive? Should they be allowed to vote for representation through government? Should they be able to legally buy cigarettes? In this country, one must be 21 to purchase alcohol or gamble. But science suggests that one’s brain does not finish developing until one is in his mid-20s. Should one not be allowed to make any of these consequential decisions until one’s brain finishes developing?

        In legal matters, consent affirms the intellectual maturity of an individual to make one’s own decisions. Adults should be able to make consequential decisions about their lives. Hopefully both of us can agree on that. So this all brings up a larger question–when does adulthood begin? If it doesn’t begin at 18, when does it begin? 21? 25? 30? If this is your issue–that you believe 18 year olds are legally adults but intellectually childish, then your problem isn’t with me. Your problem is with the federal government of the United States of America. I hope you contact your district’s Representative in the House, and both Senators representing your state. Tell them at once that the age of legal adulthood should be raised.

        Good luck lobbying Congress. While you’re on hold, I suggest you consider that 18 year olds are not a monolith. Not every 18 year old is created equally. As with persons of all ages, some people are smarter than others.

        • Estelle

          Way too many hyperboles in your post to take you seriously. An 18 year old high school senior that is doing porn to help out his financially struggling mother isn’t making a well-reasoned or thought out decision, more likely that he is thinking in the short term and not thinking about what the consequences are going to be for his future. Someone who is 28 and has some life experience can process that much better than an a 18 year old can. You aren’t going to find very many people who were teen parents who can truly say they were glad that they had a kid at 18 and glad that they didn’t wait. Getting a drivers license, buying cigarettes, and voting doesn’t have the life changing effects that being in hardcore pornography does. I really hope you understand that. If what was written on reddit was correct, he didn’t want this publicized initially, but now his name and image will be connected to porn forever, and will limit his choices, including joining the military.
          I know you have to do some mental gymnastics so you can continue to beat off to him, but something that many of learned and know is this-just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Just because Sean Cody can shoot a high school student doesn’t mean they should. Axel Braun who is the top director in straight porn, will no longer shoot anyone under 21 in his movies. Sean Cody will profit off of this story, this kid and his movies forever. The kid, however, has more than likely spent the money he made. Having a moral compass isn’t bad, even with porn.
          Informed life decisions and choices are much better to make and that is something most 18 year old kids don’t do.

          • NG212

            This conversation is getting old. But I did just want to spell out to anyone who didn’t follow how getting a driver’s license, voting, and buying cigarettes are enormously consequential decisions for an individual.

            Getting a license means being allowed to drive a car. Car crashes are one of the leading causes of death for young Americans. More of us die in car crashes than on the battlefield. It’s a legitimate concern.

            Contrary to popular belief, voting is quite important. Congress (and increasingly the President) has the authority to declare war. If one or both of these two branches declare war against a country with moderate to advanced military capabilities, this could mean direct attacks on the American homeland. Even if the United States is at war with a country without Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, Congress still has the authority to reinstitute the draft for military conscription. That could be the difference between life and death for thousands of young Americans. Voting is just as important as whom one votes for. If the wrong candidate wins, that could spell disaster. And this is not hyperbole. Need I mention the historical precedents? Need I mention Vietnam?

            Finally, there is the matter of ability to purchase cigarettes. I feel silly having to even lay this out for you. Cigarettes contain nicotine. Nicotine is addictive. Cigarettes also contain loads of other chemicals and carcinogens that basically kill you. It’s not just lung cancer or emphysema, either. Smoking is also connected to many heart conditions. New research suggests that being a smoker means one is more likely to develop cancers outside of the lungs. The research on just how bad smoking is for the human body isn’t done. It’s still piling up higher and higher.

            So yeah, being 18 allows one to make all sorts of dangerous decisions. And when death is a real possibility, shame just doesn’t seem like such a big deal. After all, 18 year olds also have the legal authority to change any part of their name. If Robert takes his grandmother’s maiden name, suddenly Google doesn’t recognize him.

          • Estelle

            A simple background check would easily reveal Roberts past life something that most companies do. You obviously aren’t well versed in employment law, nor do you appear to know much about at will employment laws.

            Are you really this dense. God I think you are. Voting, buying a pack of cigarettes, and driving a car aren’t things that will alter your future in the way that doing porn does genius.

            Anyone with half a brain and adequate comprehension skills would understand that everything you just listed is irrelevant and has zilch to do with his decision to do porn and the consequences he will have to deal with. Buying a pack of cigarettes at 18 won’t get you fired from a job at 28. Voting in an election won’t get you booted out of the military. You will not have to answer questions about why

          • Estelle

            You will not be asked why you choose to drive a car at 18 when you are 50 but he will be asked why he fucked on film for the rest of his life.

            Get it now? A popular Sean Cody model’s porn past was found out right before he joined the military and he was told he couldn’t.

            In a perfect world, pornographers would tell models what they may face when they choose to go into this industry. They obviously don’t. Sean Cody will make money off this kid for many years to come, Robert, however doesn’t have that luxury. Nor does he have the luxury to fade back into anonim

          • Jay

            And when a car dealer sells an auto to an 18-year-old, he should warn him that, even if he drives carefully, he could have a terrible auto accident that could leave him crippled, maimed or disfigured for the rest of his life. But no such warning would be needed if he were 19 or older.

            I doubt that there’s a military policy against inducting men with a “porn past.” Had there been such a policy in wartime, young men would have been signing up in droves to do porn in order to escape the draft.

          • The Mouse

            Goes to show you most gay men are depraved which feeds the Christian Right with more ammunition against us; that we are recruiting young boys, because he is still technically a teen. I am all for porn, and sexuality, but 18 is very young, esp. if he is in high school, but most gay porn studios are all about the money and could care less whose lives they f*ck up. That mother is one sick person. I’d be embarrassed if my kid was doing porn and getting gang banged.

    • Jay

      It seems that the so-called “argument”–it’s really just a strongly held opinion, not a reasoned argument–that some are advancing is that Robert should not have been hired because he was still earning his high school diploma, not because he was 18. But, as the “argument” goes, it would have been ok to hire him had he been 18 and earning his college degree, as are many of the guys who do porn. And of course, when you have a high school diploma and do porn vids under a pseudonym, and those vids are released on the Internet, there’s no way word of it could ever reach your friends, schoolmates, family or co-workers. Right?

      • NG212

        The difference between Robert and every other 18 year old in gay porn is largely cosmetic. If someone is critical of his choice, they should be critical of the choices made by all the adolescents in porn before him. And if someone is concerned his future will be negatively impacted, I say that applies to all porn actors. All of them. Sean Cody wrote in a scene description years ago that he tells his models, ‘it’s not a matter of if someone in your life finds out, it’s a matter of when.’ Of course I wish Robert the best in all of his endeavors, but he sounds thicker-skinned than some of the folks defending his ‘lost innocence.’ For all I know, Robert could be a victim of a lot in his life. But I don’t think doing porn is necessarily one of them–especially since neither he nor his mother believe that’s the case. I’ll take it from the horse’s mouth and ignore those so consumed with sentiment that they forget the inherent hypocrisy of their argument–other than the press attention, there’s little that distinguishes Robert’s story from those of other 18 year old (male and female) porn actors. He was desperate for money and he took up sex work. Maybe he didn’t think it through, maybe he’ll regret it one day. But it was his choice to make, he made it, his family supports him for it, and he’ll be able to finish his education. Whether you like it or not, it happens all the time in gay porn–at studios large and small.

        • Jay

          Some older people are so desperate for money that they are forced take a minimum-wage job in fast food. But if they had youth and looks, I think they might prefer to work in porn. For the four porn vids that Robert performed in–less than 7 days work–he earned over $12,000–about 10-months wages for a fast food worker. And Robert–who, BTW, is gay–enjoyed his work. And I doubt that he did it out of desperation for money. Had he been “desperate for money,” he could have worked in the retail or fast food industry–they’re always hiring. Just because he took a job doing porn to make money does not make him “desperate for money.”

            I didn’t know he’s gay. That’s pretty cool. That explains the serious intimacy and passion in his video with Joshua, who has long seemed less G4P and more heteroflexible (since he initially identified as straight, and had a girlfriend).

            Ummmmm, lots of goodlooking, modelesque people don’t do porn and have worked in retail or flipping burgers. Try again.

    Why don’t they interview the principal and school admins? they’re the ones needed to say everything…

    Sometimes, people do what they have to do to make ends meet or help keep a family together. We need an education in order to make a living in this society but are becoming so judgmental, bigoted and self righteous. This young man’s life is forever change by all involved including us bloggers. He did what he thought he needed to do to help his family, maybe his mother didn’t know all the facts about what he was doing or did, but she supported him in his right to be a man, and is still supporting him. Sean Cody is a business, and as all business; they followed the rules and guidelines of the business, talked with this young man, asked him, did he know what he was getting into, etc. Or maybe not, just looking for the next new thing, as we the bloggers who relish in porn, look for the next new guy who comes along. When we looked at him coupling with guys on film, did we wonder what his age was? No we didn’t; we lusted, commented, and wonder when he would return. Some as the others that we don’t know anything about.
    Education, is a tricky thing now. Leaders are ever more self serving, judges, who look out for number one. The media now is a tricky thing, but we don’t have to play into it. We can turn thing around, if we just think about what’s really going on here.
    Noel ( and I’ll just call him just that, his performer name) was a character that got hired by a studio, that well watched by a lot of gay men. Was not thought about after the thrill was over by us all, until this news story came about, now we are judging the studio, the mother, and the man himself.
    What he did was probably a tough decision in the first place, but he made the best of it, could of when to prostitution, drugs, robbery and the list goes on; yet he chose a safer route, he thought. Now that this story is out; education has lead this young man on a road to nowhere, helping out what he did in his past, as well as whoever leaked what he did to the school, the bullier, and now, us.
    I truly hopes his future gets better, his family gets pass the damage they everyone has cause them, and he becomes a healthy, productive citizen.

      “This young man’s life is forever change…blah, blah, blah…boo, hoo, hoo.” Such grand melodrama.

      What difference does it make why Noel did porn? Why does he have to justify it with a noble motive?

      Sean Cody has no duty whatsoever to question that motives of guys who want to perform in his videos. Noel was 18. Not 8. He obviously had some idea what he getting into. Why else do you think he did these vids under a pseudonym instead his legal name?

      “What he did was probably a tough decision in the first place,..” Really? Noel chose to perform in 4 Sean Cody
      videos released between Oct. 9, 2013 and Dec. 10, 2013. No one twisted his arm. And if you watch his vids, HE CLEARLY ENJOYED DOING THEM. Noel could have stopped after the 1st video (for which he was paid $1900), or the 2nd (for which he was paid $3000), or the 3rd (for which he was paid $3500). But no, he went on to do a 4th (for which he was paid $4000). For about 5 days work, he was paid over $12,000.

      Noel is not the only guy who did porn while enrolled in school. Many of the guys who do porn do so while enrolled in school.

      “Whoever leaked…”? The identity of a porn actor is not a state secret. When someone does porn vids that are released over the Internet, sooner or later, word of it will reach his friends, family, co-workers or schoolmates. He can’t hide behind a stage name.

          What is your point, Miss Thing?

        Correct and true to form. He is eighteen, a man, and it should be nobodies business what this man did, and as all porn performers who get us off, in the privacy of our own enjoyment. And not talked about to others who are not of our taste, class or seedy liking. ; )

    I just wonder – if a computer savy tech went into the school’s admin offices and ran browser histories on the dozens of teachers and admin personnel’s computers – would they find any visits to NSFW porn sites? I’ll bet the answer is probably more likely than not.

    An open letter to the Gay Porn Industry,

    Recently, a story broke about a
    SeanCody.com performer called “Noel” and how his high school kicked him out for
    doing porn. I think this event should
    give us, the gay community (and all though gay4pay attachments), some pause. Everyone is an uproar about how wrong the
    school was, but few questioned whether Sean Cody did anything wrong. In fact, he probably profited off the
    controversy significantly. Did anyone question the porn industry’s
    standards? How close to child porn do we
    come, before we set some boundaries.

    I am big porn fan. I am also a high
    school teacher. If this situation would
    have arisen at my school, it would have put me as a gay man in a very delicate
    position. We teachers are under tremendous
    scrutiny these days. If we so much as
    speak to a child in a questionable way, we could lose our jobs and ruin our
    careers. Just the knowledge of one my
    students having done gay porn, would make me uncomfortable, constantly
    questioning every word I say to the student, every gesture, all contact in any
    way. If I were a coach who might find
    himself in the locker room with such a student it would even be worse.

    You may see “Noel” as an adult, but
    those of us in the education community and most parents see all students in
    high school as kids until they graduate, regardless if they are 18 or not. We must treat them the same as always. Otherwise, the privileges they gain when
    becoming legal can be counterproductive to keeping them in school and on track
    to graduating.

    Not to forget either what it look
    like to the non-gay community and to parents. “See we told you. Those gays just want to recruit our kids.” It’s
    bad enough that we appear to be constantly trying to convert straight men, but
    now we are going after high school kids?

    I would even accept shooting the
    scenes while in high school, but the releasing of them should have been held
    until he was graduated and all college admissions offerings were secure. We must be the adults. High school students think they are
    invincible and are blind to the consequences of their behavior. Sean Cody should have known that Noel’s
    secret was going to come out inevitably and that he would suffer abuse from fellow
    students, at the least.

    It’s time that the gay porn
    industry takes a stand on something other than fighting over condoms. There needs to be a promise to all of us educators
    and parents, that you will keep porn out of high school.

    Sincerely,

    Gay Teacher

    Ok, i am as liberal as they come (no pun intended) but for the mother to be proud of her son for supporting her financially this way? I mean, so many other types of work to do. Why porn? That is not something to be proud of in one’s 18 year old son… watching him getting gang banged. I think she is sick in the head. Sorry just my two cents.
