DSC_4As always, I’m thankful for my fans. And, a special thank you to the many GuysInSweatpants members who have been members since the very beginning!

The things I’m most thankful for this year are having an amazing family that has supported me throughout my entire journey in this career, and also being able to work for a studio that can provide me with so many amazing opportunities. —Joey Mills

This year I was given amazing opportunities. I’m thankful for all of the people at Helix Studios like Casey Roman and Keith Miller who have believed in me not only as a model, but for taking me onto their production staff. Secondly, the fans. I never thought I’d have a wall covered in fan art and pages long of handwritten letters! The fans are the ones who make me excited to create new content and they are the best the porn industry has ever seen. I look forward to our futures as a family and the amazing performances to come. —Cameron Parks

liamI’m thankful for my amazing family and friends who inspire me everyday. I’m thankful for the opportunities I’ve gotten in life and the places I’ve gotten to go. Lastly, I’m thankful to be alive, healthy, and happy. —Liam Riley

dieselThe things I’m thankful for: Waking up to a hard dick at my old age. After 13 years of gay porn and escorting, still HIV negative. Being in the industry for 13 years and not having a bottoming or bareback “debut” to stay relevant. Not being a thirsty cum rag doing booty bumps and having “load count weekends.” I’m thankful for having the loving support of my family, friends, and supporters who inspire me to be better everyday. And, I’m thankful for my personalized cock pic from Blake Mitchell. He’s a sweet young man that I’d like to fuck hard and deep. —Diesel Washington

DHHS7Q8U0AAyPaMI am very thankful for Helix Studios for giving me a porn career and making me who I am today. And I’m thankful for Casey Roman and Alex Roman for not only being the best directors I’ve worked with, but being my first gay friends I ever made. Thankful for all the encouragement that all fans have given me for my college education, and for finding new work opportunities outside of porn. Also want to thank you, Str8UpGayPorn, for all your amazing reviews and your honest opinion! —Logan Cross

co2a6594Today, November 23rd, marks my one year anniversary of being in the industry, so I’m super thankful. I’m thankful for the acceptance, warm welcome, and amount of success I’ve received in the industry thus far. Last year while everyone was preparing the stuffing, I was getting stuffed! Boomer Banks and I were filming our scene with CockyBoys and that’s where it all started. I’m thankful to have such a friend, mentor, and positive role model in Boomer, who has been so helpful in helping me develop myself and always being there whenever I need him. The same with Calvin Banks, I love him to death! I’m thankful to have had the chance to work with some of the top studios, including Cockyboys, Men, and with my Falcon Studios Group family who’ve helped me grow tremendously. My ass thanks you for the good angles and lighting. Last but not least, where would I be without my fans. I’m nothing without them and they’re the ones that make it happen. Thank you to all those who have supported me and continue to support this industry. I love you all, Happy Thanksgiving. —Beaux Banks

What I am thankful for: 1. My bad ass fans–I love you guys #baconbits 2. My porn family–CockyBoys  and RJ Sebastian, I’m #humbled 3. My new Adventures! Stay tuned…#grateful —Boomer Banks

DNgZdf_UIAAxeqoThankful for my family that support me no matter what I do. I am thankful for my fans without them I wouldn’t be here. As well as Helix for giving me a platform. I am thankful that I have people in my life that love me for who I am. —Tyler Hill

Alex Mecum and Carter Dane

DOepomqUMAAVhLaI’m thankful for love, sex, and the beauty that surrounds us all. I’m also thankful for all the strong women, living and dead, that give me my own strength. And I’m thankful for the resistance. I would probably say more but my phone is about to die in northwest Arkansas with no charger! —Sean Ford

What am I thankful for? Well, there is a plethora of things that I am thankful for this year! The first thing that I am extremely thankful for is the people that I call my fans. The amount of love and support that I receive could brighten up the darkest day. Second, I am thankful for everyone at Helix Studios for not only being incredible co-workers, but for being like a second family to me. Last but certainly not least, I am incredibly thankful to have such a phenomenal man to carry out my days with. I could honestly go on, but my ass will never shut up if I do. I can’t complain about how this year has gone. —Corbin Colby

I’m thankful for my amazing husband, Casey, the best boss in the world, Keith, and the fans—cause without them, there’s nothing! —Alex Roman

wesleyI’m thankful to have such an amazing, supportive, loving family and group of friends who have always been team Wesley, way before there was “Wesley.” I’m thankful to work in porn—it has changed my life. And I am thankful to have the opportunity to transform the standard stereotype of what a porn star represents. —Wesley Woods

9kRQamlq.jpg_largeI am thankful for all of the new people I have had the opportunity to meet and become friends with this past year. I am also thankful for all the dick and ass that was presented before me this past year—I can’t wait for next year’s smorgasbord! I’m also extremely thankful for all my people that love to creep, jack off and fuck themselves to me. Love you all! Yeah…even you Grinder Catfishes! Cheers, this load’s for you! —Pierce Paris

I’m thankful for my everlastingly painful hemorrhoid so I don’t have to bottom, every single race besides Caucasian (because fuck white people), and most importantly Jodie Foster. —Wes Campbell

cooperThanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it gives me time to marvel on the journey that I have taken in my life thus far. This year I am most thankful for the ordinary. It is our ordinary life that catapults us into extraordinary situations, and it is also our ordinary days that we tend to take for granted. These days I am so grateful for days that pass where I don’t have to call family members from the hospital telling them I just experienced a seizure. And, grateful for days which have become so routine that they become a blur. So, as I grow older, I have come to realize to be thankful for these ordinary days which have made up my life. —Cooper Dang

DKeKkT2XoAEw_6QI don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, so this is all a bit new to me, but I certainly have so much to be thankful for this year. I’m very thankful to be shown so much love and kindness, and to be cared for so deeply by my boyfriend. I’m so lucky and thankful every day for that. Also, I’m very thankful to CockyBoys, to RJ, and to Jake Jackson for being so wonderful to me, and taking a chance on me when nobody else would. I’m so grateful to have played a part of in All Saints—the huge new production coming up from them—it’s going to be amazing! Lastly I’m thankful to America for being such a gracious host to me these last six months. It’s been a whirlwind and I’ve loved every minute of it, and I’ve met some of the most amazing people. —Josh Moore

I’m thankful for all the dick I’ve gotten in my lifetime. I’m also thankful for my fans, family, and friends! What I’m really thankful for is my Wilde Future ahead. —Brandon Wilde

DHxOxEiXcAEXJbeI am thankful for our three monster children Janet, Prince, and Sheila. I’m thankful for my beautiful partner, and his more beautiful soul. I am also thankful we haven’t had to have sex in front of any of our family members, friends, or appetizers. —Marc MacNamara

awolfThis year has been amazing and it’s because of the fans. All of you keep me traveling, shooting, booking, and busy as all-hell! It’s been a great ride, and seems to just be getting better. I’m thankful for each and every one of you. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone, and a safe holiday. —Austin Wolf

christI am thankful for all of my friends and family! I’m thankful for my health and happiness. And I am thankful for everyone that follows me, and especially all of the people that interact with me on a daily basis! —Christian Bay

IMG_0850I’m thankful for the freedom the adult industry has given me. Working in nightlife and F&B for 20 years, I was a prisoner to a demanding schedule, with no weekends or holidays off. The adult industry has given me back the ability to spend holidays with the people I love, and I’ve made such great friends in co-workers, and genuinely kind fans who have become part of my personal holiday joy. Oh, and did I mention I’m thankful for big D? (Cough…Jason Vario, Austin Wilde, Kris Evans). Because yeah…that too. —Bruce Beckham

Happy Thanksgiving, Cock Lovers! I’m thankful for my amazing life, and that I’m fortunate enough to get paid to do what I love…make gay porn! I’m thankful for all the hot man sex in front of my camera and that I’ve had the honor to film so many amazing and beautiful men for over a decade. I’m thankful for my loving and supportive mom, and that my hair hasn’t fallen out from too much bleach. Gobble Gobble! —mr. Pam

DLECa5zUEAAWzF9As always, I’m very thankful for all the love and support from all my fans and followers, especially those that have been there since the beginning of my career. I’m also very thankful for the awards I’ve won over the last two years, and I hope to win more. But I think I’m probably most thankful for my best friend, Artemis. Without him I’d just be a lonely weirdo without a cat.😻 —Jack Hunter

sistThings I’m thankful for this year: I’m thankful (and a little bit surprised) that no one has come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against me—yet. I’m thankful for being blue-check certified on Twitter! I know it doesn’t really mean anything except that I am more relevant, more important and just all around better than almost everyone else. I’m thankful Donald Trump has Twitter, because if he didn’t, the headlines would all be about war, world hunger, healthcare, human rights, the environment, and all of that other depressing crap that is so unimportant by comparison to “witch hunts,” “fake news,” and the mysterious “covfefe.” But most of all, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, I’m thankful that orgasms are free, quick, easy, and you can get one all by yourself. —Sister Roma

c_users_pabbi_pictures_fat-man-at-computerI’m thankful to have pulled off the Str8UpGayPorn Awards back in June, which was the most grueling, insane, and actually fun thing I’ve done over the last 10 years in this business. Str8Up co-founder Davyd and I had been planning the show since 2015, and we’re both so grateful to have been able to bring people together and celebrate some of the best work from all the nominees and winners. Thank you to everyone who came to the show, and to everyone who helped produce and present at the show—without you guys, I’d be nothing. Speaking of which, thank you to Sandra Bernhard for being the ultimate dream-come-true host! Finally, thank you to everyone for coming to this website— whether you love it or hate it—every single day. Also, like Diesel, I’m thankful for Blake Mitchell, and as a stan, I will obviously use any excuse to post gifs of him.  —Str8UpGayPorn

  • Dana Rimons

    Happy Thanksgiving Zach! Continued success with everything.

  • Ceecee

    K the video message from Alex Mecum and Carter Dane was INSANELY cute.
    Those two are adorable.

    • Scrapple

      As cute as they are I couldn’t help but think “Carter, after you finish giving your pageant answer you need to say you’re thankful for your boyfriend, because he’s clearly hoping you will.” Alas, Carter didn’t pick up on that.

      • Ceecee

        Alas, my people are not good at getting to the point sometimes.

  • James Johnson III

    Happy Thanksgiving to Zach and the crew behind the best porn blog on the web!

  • Joey

    This is all nice and well and it’s great to be grateful and give thanks.
    BUUUUUT
    when Diesel eventually gets to fuck the ever-living shit outta Blake Mitchell, we’re definitely having a front row seat, right?? Because I absolutely need to see THAT.

    Pierce, that horndog, he knows what’s up. Also, Bruce seems like one of those rare few who’s legitimately thankful and overjoyed to be working in this industry.

  • nick

    Cooper Dang would get it.

    • Hari Kalyan

      he’s so cute

  • Schnitzel

    I’ve had a few beers after being with family so I’ll speak my current state of reality… I am thankful for ZS always presenting the good, bad and ugly. You never shy from shocking, shaming or sharing all that makes this herd flock here for the latest shares. Not to mention all of the clever minds that post some of the best comments on any blog. More ass licking around Christmas for y’all 😉

  • Maximus

    I’m thankful for the shade that some of these hos threw (hey Ms. Diesel), I’m thankful for Sister Roma’s eye makeup (which I will be mopping), and I’m thankful for Zach creating/managing a space where I can challenge myself intellectually, express myself creatively, and be a hypercritical cunt.

    • Sister Roma

      😘😘😘

      • Marik Ishtar

        Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!

  • Paul

    i am wrong? or for diesel washing said is a problem for him to do bottom or bare?

  • Star69Me
    • Scrapple

      I’m mad he said he was thankful for Jodie and not his obvious spirit animal, Drew Barrymore.

      • Star69Me

        True!!

  • Buzzaki

    I’m thankful that Corbin Colby knows words like “plethora”.

  • Scrapple

    The entire time I was enjoying my slice of Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie with my family I was trying so hard not to laugh at the image in my head of a naked Corbin booty popping while singing from Miss Patti’s catalogue. Well, trying not to laugh and trying not to get hard.
