Surprise: HIV-Phobic Gay-For-Payer Ricky Larkin Unretires After Trashing Gay Porn Industry In 2013

Posted October 1, 2015 by with 52 comments

Ricky-Larkin-butt-ass-hairy-hole-High-Performance-Men-first-gay-toy-dildo-16Gay-for-pay porn star Ricky Larkin was a third-tier, unmemorable performer who lazily fucked his way through several gay porn scenes a few years ago before quite memorably retiring in 2013 with a “Dear John” letter trashing his co-stars, directors, agents, and the gay porn industry as a whole.

Now, two years after taking a dump on all of the gay men paying his bills, Ricky Larkin has announced his return to an industry he previously described as “dark,” “morally self-destructive,” “vicious,” and “sick.” Makes sense.

Ricky Larkin’s new Twitter account, announcing his return:

ricky1It’s October 1st and the rent is due. Will Ricky Larkin’s scene today at MyFriendsFeet be enough to cover it?

Here are some of the “best” parts of Ricky Larkin’s retirement letter posted to RealPornWikiLeaks in September, 2013, titled “Walking Away – Happy, Healthy, and Humble.”

Ricky Larkin on people in the industry, and why he became a gay-for-pay actor:

Although I have met a few great people in the adult industry with a lot of quality behind their character, unfortunately the majority have been egomaniacs, “bad apples,” and fakes. Having quickly recognized this, I never looked at the porn lifestyle as glamorous. I became a gay performer out of financial necessity; not because I thought it was cool or it boosted my ego.

Ricky Larkin on how gay porn is like “the war” (he doesn’t specify which one) in the Middle East:

In fact, like many performers I’ve suffered permanent psychological damage from my years in the sex trade.  Porn almost always leads its young performers down a path of prostitution and moral self-destruction. I view the sex trade as similar to the war in the Middle East: a bunch of young,  ignorant to-the-facts men and women being used as pawns for corporate gain. Big dollars are being made at the physical, mental and emotional expense of men and women who more often than not turn to drugs and alcohol to mask their hatred of themselves and what they’re doing.

And, best of all, Ricky Larkin on people with HIV, whom he says are “using” privacy laws to infiltrate the gay porn industry:

I find it outrageous and disturbing to see the number of HIV+ gay porn performers who, by using privacy laws designed to protect against social and workplace discrimination, avoid disclosing their HIV status to their sex scene partners. Yes porn is a “workplace” too, but it’s a workplace that involves having sex, so your partners are entitled to know if you are putting them at risk for a life-threatening disease.

If I had a common cold, before you shook my hand I would tell you that there’s a chance I could pass the cold to you –  just as there’s a chance you won’t catch the cold at all. When I hear numbers like “70-80% of gay porn performers are HIV+” but they don’t have to reveal their status to their scene partner, it horrifies me.

I see gay performers tweet daily that HIV is “nothing to be ashamed of,” but if that’s the case why conceal your status from your scene partner?

The philosopher Plato said that “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” So even though I won’t be in front of the camera anymore, I will continue to use my voice to push for condoms and testing in adult films because it’s the right thing to do.

And finally, Ricky Larkin on how gay porn has ruined his life forever:

Unless having sex on camera is something you truly enjoy doing, either don’t do it, or get out NOW, before its ill effects descend on you and crush your spirit. I’m haunted by memories of how I sold myself short so many times, and risked my life for no gain other than a mediocre-at-best paycheck. Not to mention the fact that I’m viewed as a gay-for-pay” prostitute by my entire family and hometown. My power-lifter friends wouldn’t be so friendly if they knew about my double life, but more than likely they’ll eventually find out, too. My career in porn is not going to go away because I’m retired; the movies I made will be available for years to come. This is something I will struggle with both internally and in my community for the rest of my life.

Given the melodramatic language, the pretentious, college sophomore-level writing style, and the absurd references (Plato, anyone?), most people believed that Ricky Larkin’s 2013 letter wasn’t actually written by Ricky Larkin at all, and was instead ghostwritten (or at least heavily edited) by his girlfriend at the time. For those who forgot, Larkin’s girlfriend was…wait for it…Nica Noelle.

Here’s the happy couple at an ice skating rink in 2013:

For those of you worried that gay porn studios might be reluctant to hire Ricky Larkin—given that he accused them of using him for corporate gain and causing him permanent psychological damage—don’t be!

cantwait According to Larkin’s tweets, Men.com and Raging Hot Falcon have already set up shoots for the performer who, two years ago, was “horrified” while shooting gay porn. Hopefully he won’t be paired with someone who’s HIV-positive.

Good luck to all the studios that hire Ricky Larkin over the next few months (until he makes a couple thousand dollars and retires again). I’m sure it’ll be worth it. Hey, anyone who dated Nica Noelle has to be a sane and reasonable person, right?

 

  • Alan

    Kinda late out of the starting block on this one, Zach, as My Friend’s Feet has already released almost a dozen videos with Ricky in them over the past year or so…

    • Zachary Sire

      Kinda not. He announced his return and opened the Twitter yesterday.

      • Klaus

        Sorry Zach, but Alan is right. Ricky starred in 11 videos and assisted with tickling and worshipping in numerous more on My Friend’s Feet. One of the videos I found is dated Dec 09, 2014, others are from April and June 2015. He did scenes with Connor Maguire, Billy Santoro, Johnny Hazzard, Lance Hart, Johnny V & Joey D and many others…

      • walcott

        actually, Alan is right. Ricky never fully left. he actually has been making scenes for the foot fetish site since his alleged “retiring” from gay porn. they may not involve sex in the conventional sense, but he’s been making a steady amount of videos with that studio this entire time.

  • Alan Keddie

    Who dat?

    • TheSagaOf

      I’unno.

    Nothing to see here, most people leave a job and bash it and some come back with their tale between their legs because everything else they tried to do sucked even worst….he gets a pass in my book and it has has nothing to do with how hot he looks getting fucked….which he does….

  • John

    Nothing to see here, most people have left a job before and bashed it and some come back with their tail between their legs after finding out everything else sucked worse…..he gets a pass and its not because he looks great getting fucked, even though he does…that boy should only bottom from now on….

  • Stephen

    Yes, no one pays for porn…that’s why models make 2-5k a scene and company owners are millionaires…

    • andrew

      What models make 2-5k a scene? Damn few, if any.

      • I think Sean Cody, Corbin Fisher & Men pay that per scene. They might be it.

    • Alan. P. (Hansen)

      I also call BS on company owners being millionaires.

  • Knightgee

    I mean, if wanting to know if your scene partners might have HIV or other STIs in an industry where bareback sex has increasingly become the standard for multiple mainstream studios makes you HIV-phobic, then I’d be HIV-phobic too.

    • You should never work for Lucas Entettainment then.

  • Then don’t work for Lucas Entertainment.

    • loyalty888

      If it was so bad, why come back? I think you’re right in that there is truth to what he says and most performers are aware of this. What get’s me is if it was so bad, why come back and tweet that you’re looking forward to you’re looking forward to shooting your next scene.

  • Scrapple

    “Ain’t nothin’ goin’ on but the rent.”

  • prestes_antony

    I love porn, I really do! But I can’t deny anything he said. He has a point. I mean, I’m not ¨HIV-phobic”, whatever that means, but I’m 100% against the HIV cult that seems to be going on the LGBT community lately. You can live a normal life being positive, sure, but that doesn’t mean you life isn’t gonna change… Stay healthy, kids, don’t jeopardize your well-being for a hook up.

  • Mark-E-Mark

    A lot of times the truth comes out. The fact that he is getting re-hired after that amazes me. Usually when you bad mouth a studio you are pretty much blackballed. Ahhh the times they are a changing. (P,S,- Maybe he’s doing everything right this time?) They must serve bitter tea at the Old Gay Sunshine Retirement Home.

    • loyalty888

      lol @ “bitter tea”

  • TalkDirtyToMe

    Nothing he said is untrue or hateful for that matter. I think you are sensationalizing this for no other reason than to start some verbal war.

    • Martin Hasani

      exactly!

  • Spongey

    Isn’t this the same guy that went missing and then reappeared? I remember Fabscout Howard putting a tweet that his family/friends were worried about him after he didn’t turn up for a shoot. I’m sure six months later he’ll be pulling a Jason Adonis and quit the biz. No me gusta.

  • andrew

    There is a lot of truth and food for thought in what Ricky has posted.

    • Zachary Sire

      Apparently you completely missed the point that everything “he” supposedly said is 100% meaningless since he’s now coming back to gay porn.

      • andrew

        Just because he goes back to a job he hates, because he needs the money, doesn’t negate some of the points he made about the industry and some of the people in it.

        • loyalty888

          Except when you say that job ruined your life and how you’ve regretted it. Surely he can find other ways to make money that won’t “risk [his] life for no gain other than a mediocre-at-best paycheck” as he says.

      • Alan. P. (Hansen)

        No one missed the point – except you (yet again). People sometimes are forced to return to types of work that they hate. What he wrote still stands as accurate.

      • Pascal

        I don’t think you initially highlighted enough the fact that he didn’t say anything, he was just being used as a sock puppet for Crazy Nica, the rat lady.

      • John Rocher

        This statement is fallacious, specifically an Ad hominem of the tu quoque variety. Attack the argument, not the person. He may be a hypocrite for going against what he preaches but that does not invalidate the argument at all.

  • OverKill

    Some truth to what he said but why go back to an industry that haunted him so much and in his words mediocre paycheck. Do a normal job then, Parker London is, he’s working at a bar. He loses some credibility here because he’s coming back to the place where his weight lifting buddies won’t look kindly on it and his family calling him a gay for pay prostitute. So I guess it doesn’t mean anything now when you need the money from gay studios. Why not do straight porn, paychecks are mediocre for male performers who do straight porn.

  • lemein

    Blech! to me he is bloody hedious but let’s not be hypocritical,because he mostly speaks the truth.

  • Todd

    Well, dating Nica Noelle was your first clue ….

    Why can’t you just let him be …… It’s his prerogative ….. he can do what he wants to do (to pay the rent) ….http://images.rapgenius.com/3109ea32946b2d5d78c8e461736b2b31.400x280x15.gif

  • Super Marco Manuel

    Ricky is back to cockland.But or course,we all know that its temporary.

    Ricky represent everything i hate about gay porn.Which means gay for pay.If only gay porn would be gay again.Just like in the golden era of gay porn.

    Ricky comeback in gay porn is like any other gay for pay combacks in gay porn.Which means when they needs money.Can anybody say Jason Adonis,Cody Cumming,ect…

    Anybody remember the so called comeback of Leo Giamani? He only made a jerk off video for Paragon Men and dissapearded of gay porn once again.Its so obvious that Leo was desparate for money.Gay for pay men are the biggest prostitutes in gay porn.

    Gay for pay men coming back in gay porn only for money is very common.You can expect lots of gay for pay men comeback in gay porn.

    Gay for pay men.Its seems like theres no way to get rid of them out of gay porn.It sucks.

    Once Ricky gets enough money for his steroids needs,he will go back to vaginaland.

  • *Star*Bryte*

    of course he’d be back, he knows where he can make the most money, and it aint’ in str8 porn.

  • GoGo

    Of course MEN will end up hiring him they already have two pedophiles on their roster….sure let’s hire the guy who completely shitted on the gay porn industry.

  • Zealot

    • loyalty888

      Ah, I remember that sexy nut case fondly

  • Maximus

    What?! Hypocrisy in the gay porn industry?! No! EVERYTHING THAT I THOUGHT I KNEW IS A LIE!

  • He’s not even hot.

  • Myko

    YeeeeeHaaaa – the RENT is due for sure.
    BTW who the fuck is he ??

  • Caleb Exhem

    ? Who is this again ? Because I don’t really seem to think he is relevant at all.

  • Marsha Lewis

    Didn’t know who this nobody was so I went and look and saw one of his scene of him getting fucked and sucking dick btw, scene was directed by his girlfriends. WTF… there is no such thing as gay4pay because no straight man is going to suck dick and get fucked on camera. Anyway, He is nothing to look at wouldn’t give him a second look if I saw him on the street.

  • Orlando Chan

    Isn’t someone allowed to change their minds????

  • luvpolitics .

    Got dang it, why do hateful faggots, like the one screaming about Ricky in this rant, always have to run off or blacklist every decent looking performer in the industry? Everything the man said about the industry is probably true or worst and yet you crucify the man and go after his livelihood (his adult work) for speaking his opinion? Unless you are a current or past performer that has had to your life, dignity and health out in the open or on the line to perform in the gay porn industry, then I’d recommend you shut your mouth. I personally did not appreciate the “pay for pay” mantra or the fact that Ricky identified as heterosexual in personal life in total disregard for homosexual activity but did not let that affect the fact that he is one of the few performers in gay porn who actually performs well in their scenes. To boot, he is tall, masculine, hairy, has big beautiful brown eyes, a big dick, a handsome Mediterranean face and a irresistibly fat man ass. If you prefer gorgeous, Mediterranean looking twinks, with big dicks, thin frames and bubble butts then his earlier work before he buffed up will appease you as well. Reminding everyone of something that happened three years ago serves no one but the bitter trolls stealing clinging on to the fact that the porn industry greatly impacts the lives of people brave enough to perform in it. Get that chip off your shoulder blogger. Life is too short to not enjoy seeing that hot ass of Larkin’s pounded into submission.

  • Robert McDealer

    I read what he posted and know guys in the porn industry… nothing he said was untrue… it is not a glamorous life and there are some very unsavory characters in it…
