    • Felipe Pinafi

      Wow
      He’s really talented!

    • Joey

      Awesome gif wall.

    • I freakin Love Curtis! He is probably the best performer on Sean Cody. Idk usually not attracted to red heads, but he makes me feel some type of way!

      ~PS. I know I’m in denial with thinking Curtis is Bi Or Gay. Is he Straight? Please say no :l because if he is straight then I’m gonna think everytime he gets home from doing a scene, He goes home to his girlfriend (if he has one) and says …

      • Tim

        he has identified as bi. he is married to a woman. but then again, the joy at taking a dick or giving one to a guy for him is so apparent.

        • WhimsyCotton

          That first gif with Ashton says it all. The biting lip, the face, the arch. It’s like he’s about to explode with pleasure.

        • n24rc

          He’s never identified as bi. And if it’s on Sean Cody then it’s bullshit.

    • WhimsyCotton

      He treats each dick like it’s his last. God bless him. He must be faithful to his wife and not get any dick in his real life which would explain his amazingly dick-starved performances.

  • FieldMedic

    So much nope. In the end I had to settle on one of the hottest, drama-free stars in the list: XL

  • Maximus

    I’m sure that I sound like a broken MP3 file at this point, but I need to say this: Can we please, out of respect for ourselves and for our community, choose an openly gay man as the best porn star of the year? The fact that Colby Keller won last year is proof that we are capable of celebrating something other than the masculine heterosexual alpha male type that society tells us we should aspire to be. Let’s do it again this year.

    • Zealot

      Here, here!! I second that idea! And thank goodness there are some we can select on the list who are actually gay, and worthy of that title IMHO.

      • MC.EMC2

        Actually the vast majority of the guys in this list identify as gay or bi (except for Jared and Curtis, I guess)… It’s nice to have LGBT representation in a segment targeted to LGBT people

        • Maximus

          I’ve learned that it’s best to infer sexual orientation based on the gender(s) to which an individual is emotionally/romantically attracted. Using that operational definition, my understanding of the nominees’ sexual orientations is this:
          •Andrew Stark – Straight
          •Blake Mitchell – Gay
          •Curtis – Straight
          •Diego Sans – Gay
          •Jarec Wentworth – Straight
          •Liam Riley – Gay
          •Rocco Steele – Gay
          •Tayte Hanson – Bi
          •Tom Faulk – Straight
          •XL – Gay

          Percentage breakdown:
          •Straight: 4/10 = 40%
          •Gay: 5/10 = 50%
          •Bi: 1/10 = 10%

          • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

            I think it’s best just to take people at their word. And Curtis has always said he’s bi.
            http://www.queerclick.com/qc/2009/01/sean_cody_shane_and_curtis.php

          • Maximus

            That’s certainly the approach I take in real life, but I see two issues with that here: (1) People in the industry often vary in their defintions of sexual orientation. (2) Porn performers have an incentive to publicly identify as whichever orientation is best for their image.

            If Curtis has in fact dated—and I’m talking about candlelit dinners, long walks on the beach, love letters, cuddling, etc., not just sex—men in the past, then my impression of him would change.

            P.S. I can’t open that link for some reason. I’m not sure whether it’s faulty or whether the problem is with my device.

          • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

            The link works for me. It’s Queerclick’s Shane And Curtis update from 2009.

            I don’t understand your need for romantic inclinations to determine sexuality. No one has that definition, like no one. If you can get it up and want to for both sexes you’re bisexual.

          • Maximus

            There are plenty of people who define sexual orientation by emotional attraction. A good friend of mine can enjoy sex with both women and men but only has romantic feelings for the latter. For that reason he identifies as gay, not bi.

            If Curtis isn’t openly dating men, then he’s not any different from the G4P performers. We shouldn’t celebrate a man who plays it straight in public while enjoying sex with men in private under a fake name over openly gay/bi men. The notion that a conservative good ol’ boy who’s secretly an insatiable pig bottom should be our sexual ideal just feels like more oppressive heteronormativity.

          • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

            Nah, man. That’s just a faulty definition (and I’m not trying to be rude about this) and also a major reason why there’s so much bisexual erasing and denial in the gay community.
            http://itspronouncedmetrosexual.com/2013/01/a-comprehensive-list-of-lgbtq-term-definitions/
            Bisexual – (adj) a person emotionally, physically, and/or sexually attracted to male/men and females/women. Other individuals may use this to indicate an attraction to individuals who identify outside of the gender binary as well and may use bisexual as a way to indicate an interest in more than one gender or sex (i.e. men and genderqueer people). This attraction does not have to be equally split or indicate a level of interest that is the same across the genders or sexes an individual may be attracted to. – See more at: http://itspronouncedmetrosexual.com/2013/01/a-comprehensive-list-of-lgbtq-term-definitions/#sthash.Kn5vdP90.dpuf

          • Maximus

            It’s a difficult topic because we’re discussing socially constructed categories. We can’t point to a specific gene or concentration of chemicals and definitively say that a person’s sexual orientation is A, B, or C. There will always be different definitions because they will always involve some degree of subjectivity.

            The most appropriate paradigm for discussing sexuality is that of a spectrum (sexual preference), but our society usually insists upon defining it using one of three discrete categories and emphasizing the sentimental component of attraction (sexual orientation). The two measures aren’t entirely incompatible though, as it is possible to assign certain positions on the spectrum to each of the three categories. If we use the Kinsey Scale:
            •0, 1, 2 = Prefers opposite gender = Heterosexual = Straight = Dates opposite gender
            •3 = No preference = Bisexual = Bi = Dates both genders
            •4, 5, 6 = Prefers same sex = Homosexual = Gay = Dates same gender

            But again, that is ultimately just the subjective interpretation that makes the most sense to me personally.

            In this instance, I think that it is most appropriate to define the performers based on sexual orientation (who they date) because I believe that gay porn should seek to portray and normalize both same-sex physical attraction AND same-sex emotional attraction.

          • Tim

            it should, and it does, even if some of it is acting. I don’t know why you’d put the 2 and 4 in straight and gay categories. and it could be that someone is a 3 for sex but any other number for romance, or (though more rare, but I’ve met a girl who is thus) a 3 for romance but a 6 for sex. she really loved her previous boyfriend but there was no sexual chemistry and it caused them to break it off. then she met her first girlfriend and now they are married.

            sex and sexuality are fluid and weird things. I get so turned off by the female body that it is no question I’m gay sexually (6) but there have been women whom I’ve been fascinated with as persons, whom if sex weren’t part of romantic relationships I could have taken that plunge. few of them, but enough that by some definitions I’m bi. but then again, it is so few and far between to blur the line. which is to say, let people define themselves. based on that, Jarek is the only non-LGBT person in the bunch in his personal/internal life based on his own testimony

            and yes, they have the incentive to lie. but so do we all.

          • OneOfTheManyChris

            There is some indication that it’s different for men and women (as a group, individuals vary obviously). In the “last three people on earth” scenario, the subject is given the choice of hooking up with a butch woman or a fem man. The straight women are more attracted to the butch woman, the straight men are also more attracted to the butch woman. You could make the case that the straight woman is “sorta bi” or you could make the exact opposite case, that the man is “sorta bi.”

          • Tim

            the only thing I’ve learned from life about sex and romance is a person likes what they like, and you should believe them when they tell you. it is too complicated a dance to dance if you don’t.

          • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

            yep. i’m pretty much in the same boat.

          • Maximus

            That’s how Kinsey and many contemporary social scientists categortize them.
            0 = Exclusively hetero
            1 = Incidentally homo
            2 = More than incidentally homo
            3 = Equally hetero and homo
            4 = More than incidentally hetero
            5 = Incidentally hetero
            6 = Exclusively homo

            You’re right that it’s a flawed paradigm, as any attempt to simplify such a complex matter is bound to be. A lot of it comes down to semantics and opinion. For instance, I define deep affection without sexual attraction as platonic or familial love, whereas I define deep affection with sexual attraction as romantic love. I know that many people would agree with that view, but I also know that many people would disagree with it.

            Let people define themselves? But that would require me to set aside my general cynicism…

          • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

            I think the Kinsey scale is useful here as well. However, I do think that you’re conflating sexual attraction and romantic attraction. The problem with the Kinsey scale is it does not allow for people who are aromantic (like me) but highly sexual (and identify as gay) or people who are demisexuals (must need an emotional connection first for sexual attraction to occur) and can identify in a myriad of ways. These are socially constructed identities for sure, but I don’t think its useful to connection romance and sexuality for these very reasons.

          • Maximus

            I agree with and relate to a lot of that. You’re right that love and lust are two different physiological processes. Love (positive affect) primarily involves the limbic system, whereas lust (sexual arousal) primarily involves the endocrine system. The reason we associate the two is that they are often active simultaneously, thus reinforcing each other. I just think that the more we support and normalize gay romantic relationships—for those others among us who do want them—the less internal and external homophobia there will be.

          • n24rc

            The Kinsey scale doesn’t have merit. Their tactics of gathering information has been refuted and considered bad.

          • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

            yes, we know. they added a second dimension: http://www.mic.com/articles/126346/what-s-your-true-sexual-orientation-the-purple-red-scale-is-here-to-help-you-find-out#.vLch2puCE

            that said, i don’t want to continue a conversation with you since you firebomb every thread you’re in.

          • n24rc

            What are you talking about? Porn can’t normalize anything. The viewers aren’t broad audiences, it’s niche for a group of people.

          • Maximus

            Porn is a billion dollar global industry. Given the failings of the American public school system, it serves as sex-ed for a lot of our youth. Gays in particular have to rely upon porn for information seeing as there are hardly any portrayals of homosexual intimacy in mainstream culture. Entertainment media plays a huge role in shaping attitudes and behaviors.

          • n24rc

            Think about it this way: It’s cable tv, dude, not everyone is watching the same channel.

          • Maximus

            Yes, but we know that certain channels such as ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX have huge audiences. The same is true of the big name porn studios.

          • n24rc

            Oh, you don’t know what your saying. The ratings are lowered not only because of cable, but because of internet access as well.

            Not everyone is viewing the same thing. It’s a niche market, it’s broadband not broadcasting anymore.

          • Maximus

            SC, CF, CM, RB, BA, GH, CB, FratX, GISP, etc. are popular enough and viewed by enough individuals to be influential, especially now that models are also actively involved in daily life and culture thanks to social media.

          • Tim

            my impression is that Curtis is bi–but has been dating/married to the same woman most if not all his porn career. to ask a guy who has been with a person he loves for years and years to break up with her to date another guy to prove his bi-ness (presuming that is how he defines it himself) is a bit too much.

          • Maximus

            I never asked him to?… It would actually be enough for me to know that he’s open to his friends and family about being bi. However, given his Southern drawl and batshit conservative political ideology, I doubt that is the case. I welcome any information to the contrary though.

          • Two Cents

            You said it in that first paragraph. I have several female friends just like that. They like to get down with women but have no feelings for them other than the orgasm. I dont know what to call it so I go with what they say when they say their straight.

          • Odetofear

            I agree and I think Andrew Stark has also said he’s bi. I can understand where Maximus is coming from. There’s more to sexuality than what turns you on.

          • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

            I understand where he’s coming from as well. I just think its a common conflation to make between sexual and romantic attraction and those things don’t have to intersect at all. You can be aromantic and bisexual, gay or straight. These are two distinct phenomenons that sometimes intersect in some people.

          • sxg

            The industry and porn fans have taken these performers at their word before, and it’s failed miserably. Rocco Reed claimed he was bisexual when he started doing gay porn. Right before leaving, he stated he was never bisexual and was always straight. With such a limp dick, it was pretty obvious.

            Not too long ago there was a guy at RB cam who claimed he was mostly straight but has had some gay experiences in the past. He started duo camming with this hot former pornstar and they both said they were just good friends, even said it when they cammed solo. I ran into their personal twitter accounts and sure enough, they have been dating for almost a year when I discovered it. And all their pics together show there’s not a straight bone in their bodies!

            So usually when I hear a pornstar call themselves bisexual, or something more ridiculous like “I don’t like labels,” then I take that with a grain of salt. Action speak louder than words for me. But either way, for me sexuality in porn does not matter, what matters is that they give their best damn performances as often as they can.

          • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

            Sure. But that’s precisely why I just take them at their word. People have their own reasons for the labels they put on their own sexuality. We all did it before we came out, too. Hell, to this day and depending on where I am in the world I might have to say still ‘No, I don’t have a GIRLfriend’ to keep up appearances. With porn stars, if its not as they advertised it doesn’t really hurt me so I don’t give a shit. I don’t see much need (personally) for investigating these guys’ personal dating lives (scandals are something I’m glad Zach does), so stories like the RB guy don’t much interest me.

          • n24rc

            Rocco Reed was attempting to make a lot of cash before leaving porn(he needed to do gay porn for it).

          • sxg

            Most guys in porn, gay or straight, do. They do it mostly for the money, so no that isn’t solely a g4p/bi thing. Some gay guys definitely do it for the “experience” or even as a marketing tool for their escorting. But let’s face it most people go into porn because it’s easy money, and guys like Leo Giamani and Jimmy Durano have continued to exist in porn despite how terrible they are.

          • Two Cents

            “But either way, for me sexuality in porn does not matter, what matters
            is that they give their best damn performances as often as they can.”

            That is how porn should be taken.

          • sxg

            Exactly, or cunts spend eternity trying to make arguments on gay porn blog where no one wins when they can use that time more wisely masturbating to porn, which is what its intended purpose is supposed to be and not spur on discussions about sexuality.

          • Maximus

            Are you feeling alright, sxg? You’re usually more than happy to discuss matters beyond the superficial.

          • sxg

            Oh I am, but not when it’s a topic that has been discussed to death with nothing resolved and no one’s mind changed and across every gay porn blog extensively.

          • n24rc

            Curtis isn’t bi. He is a redneck straight boy with anti gay leanings. But is too poor and stupid to work in normal jobs.

          • OneOfTheManyChris

            There are different ways to identify one’s orientation, and the idea that it should be based one’s attraction is actually fairly new. For millennia men married women and fucked whatever they could get their hands on, and women’s sexuality was a man’s property so women-women sex wasn’t even considered real sex.

            It seems to me that gay porn work would attract exactly the sort of guy that wants to have relationships with women but likes cock in his bed. So I would say you’re being unfair to some of these guys. They’re not responsible for the whole straight guy fetish in the industry.

            You mention that performers often lie about their preferences, which is true. But there are also cases of gay men claiming to be straight so that they can get work on the endless pile of straight boy sites.

          • Maximus

            I didn’t mean to imply that these performers purposefully and consciously set out to oppress or take advantage of gay men. They as individuals aren’t the root cause of the issue, but they do play a part in it.

            I don’t know anything about “straight for pay,” so there’s nothing I can say on that topic.

          • n24rc

            There is no such thing as Straight for Pay. A majority of Women don’t need or want to pay for sex. They can get it easily and freely because all men want it, and they don’t need to worry about finding someone unlike men.

            A lot more men pay for sex, then a few women.

          • Zealot

            That was a very thoughtful comment. And if I may add a few thoughts to that, given the gay vs. gay4pay, vs. bi, vs. straight, vs. sexually fluid…etc. debate seems to eat up a lot of road on a lot of sites that cover gay porn. Not that I believe there is any one “right” way to look at this. I, as part of the viewing/consuming porn public have my own attractions and ancillary considerations which (for me, anyway) are important and CAN affect how I see, view and enjoy gay (and sometimes even straight/bi porn). I believe what you say is true and human sexuality is both complex and very hard to quantify. And in this age where you more often than not hear “Oh, I HATE labels” (which sometimes seems like a convenient way for someone to avoid admitting their true desires IMHO). Yet we, the porn-viewing public seem to continue to find identifying one’s sexual orientation important (for which I’d include myself). Gay porn for me has always been a way of seeing in others what I feel in my own inner desires and using that as a justification or validation of my own sexual identity. For younger men, that may not be so important as public mores about sexuality are changing and evolving rapidly. Therefore, I’ve come to this place: I think it’s okay to identify yourself however one believes is necessary for your own personal reasons. I tend to take most of those self-identifications with a grain of salt. If you’re engaging in gay porn for whatever reason, I’m going to judge you on how enthusiastic you are at it, how much you seem to like it, and if you denigrate it in public when asked. If you’re going to claim you’re straight in the media and otherwise hate the experience, then I have no interest in buying product you appear in. Don’t care how hot, muscular, butch, etc. you are. You lose me at that point. If you keep your mouth shut about your private preferences and otherwise seem to enjoy your work, then I’m going to enjoy it too and leave the rest to your own conscience. But the upper echelon of performers for me will always be the out gay men who lead openly gay lives and do their porn work well. Wow. That went much longer than I intended. Happy New Year all! OXOXOXOXOX

          • Maximus

            Well said!

          • n24rc

            Sex is not complex. Or a mystery.

            It’s only complex because people lie about it all the time.

          • Zealot

            I should clarify. For some, sex is not a complicated issue, or a mystery. But having worked in the field for almost 20 years, and talking to a lot of young people and adults (and doing a lot of research)– coming to terms with who you are (even figuring out who you are) sexually, isn’t that simple or easy. There are a lot of social norms, familial expectations, and religious considerations which go into how we express ourselves as sexual beings. But I agree, lying to ourselves is a commonly seen practice but the reasons why people do that are not so cut and dry.

          • n24rc

            So my point stands true.

          • Zealot

            If you mean, do you have a point? Yes. Is it accurate? Somewhat. Is it true? No. No-one does anything all the time.

          • stephen

            Blake Mitchell is Bi

          • Maximus

            Really?

          • stephen

            yeah, openly – he did camshows with girls as well as guys before he did “porn” officially iirc

          • Maximus

            Damn. At least he dates dudes.

          • n24rc

            Who cares.

          • snoopyfo

            Tayte Hanson started to say he maybe was attracted to girls sometimes when he realized the amount of fangirls from tumblr he had and how they were sending him gifts and buying stuff from his wishlist
            but i guess he now discover that he is bi, good for him i guess

          • Kiwini

            Cockyboys has a weirdly strange huge female audience… You can see it on social media

          • snoopyfo

            i think is because of the slash, yaoi fans, the guys are usually young, slim and muscular, they use cockyboys scenes and gifs for their fanfiction, becuase the cockyboys guys fit that description.. most of the do look like the guys on manga not going to lie lol

          • Maximus

            Those stories and graphic novels should come with warning labels: “WARNING! FEMALE AUTHOR! This media may contain wildly inaccurate portrayals of dialogue, sexual intercourse, and romantic relationships between two or more men. Proceed with caution when making inferrences about the real world based on this work of fantasy.”

          • snoopyfo

            that is the world os yaoi and slash fanfiction lol, im not going to lie it is my guilty pleasure

          • Rain Carrington

            I’m a female m/m author. I try very hard to portray true gay relationships. Don’t generalize. It’s insulting

          • n24rc

            You know nothing.

          • Rain Carrington

            Really? I’ve had gay friends all my life, have listened to their stories, have cried, laughed and been there. I have friends right now in and out of relationships. I have posted friends fighting for life. I have friends fighting to stay together. YOU know nothing

          • n24rc

            So you are a tourist, I should applaud your efforts? You are fetishist. Idealizing and fantasizing about gays because you can’t deal with the fact you have a pussy.

          • WhimsyCotton

            Does that mean that Caucasian men that are attracted to African Americans are fetishists as well? Areally they idolizing and fantasizing about dark skinned individuals because they have pale skin?

          • Maximus

            Oh yes, fiction based on secondhand information about events that a writer can never personally experience is always so reliably accurate. I’m sure that your status as a soon-to-be legendary master of prose makes the material all the more realistic and poignant.

            Fifty Shades of Grey is evidence that a novel’s popularity isn’t necessarily indicative of its quality.

            I must say that I am shocked to learn that you profit from your writing. Here I had you pegged as a benevolent altruist seeking to promote greater societal acceptance of gay men by sharing their stories. I never imagined that your appropriation and objectification of a minority group to which you do not belong could be driven by selfish motives. Utterly bewildering, is what it is.

            Also, you misspelled “gay”……

          • Rain Carrington

            Actually that was my phone. And if my efforts at writing about the beauty of men loving men makes me the big bucks annoys you so much, then maybe you should do it. I have amazing gay male friends who write and they are my heroes. Do it! We don’t feel in competition, we are friends. Maybe you should get some.

          • WhimsyCotton

            What do you have against the movie, music, TV, and literary industries?

          • Maximus
          • WhimsyCotton

            You write about whatever the hell you want to write about. Don’t let ridiculous buzz words like “appropriation” make you doubt your passion.

            If your work is selling then clearly there’s an audience for it. And if you have even ONE gay fan then there is nothing wrong with your work.

          • WhimsyCotton

            I thought our moniker when fighting for marriage equality was “Love is Love.” Are you suggesting that a heterosexual woman doesn’t know what love is? Or is the love between two men different than the love between a man a woman?

          • Maximus

            Men and women often interpret situations differently. For example, men who are in love typically exhibit more activity in the primary visual cortex, whereas women who are in love typically exhibit more activity in the hippocampus (memory). There are also gender differences in helping behavior, degree of importance placed on interpersonal relationships, aggressive tactics, societal expectations, and many other aspects of life relevant to sex and romance. Furthermore, a straight woman isn’t going to fully understand the finer points of being a gay man because she can never fully empathize. Accurate, poignant fiction is based on lived experience (unless it’s the historical fiction or fantasy genre).

          • WhimsyCotton

            Perhaps she’s a woman writing M/M romantic fiction and mainly markets it towards women and (more emotional) gay men? It doesn’t have to be accurate as long as its readers are enjoying it.

          • Maximus

            I feel like that type of fiction sets real relationships up for disappointment and failure, just like rom-coms do for straight people.

          • WhimsyCotton

            That’s the fault of a simple mind not the writer. People should know better than to expect fairy tale romances to be the norm in real life.

          • Maximus

            Those people are called adolescents, and there’s nothing we can do to make them any less simple-minded. Our only option is to refrain from inundating them with so much bullshit. A little bit is fine, but all “love at first sight” and no reality is a recipe for disillusionment.

            Unless they release their login information and user data, there is NOTHING to substantiate your claim.

            Also, you know that studios lure straights to gay porn because they lie about the numbers of viewership all the time; just to inflate their performers ego to protect their insecurity about doing “gay stuff.” It’s less gay if women somehow were watching it.

            Besides most women, who are into gay stuff, are usually watching lesbian porn or two women together because they are bisexual.

          • Odetofear

            of course it would. They’re mostly hairless “edgy” boys. Their idea to do a One Direction parady isn’t a far stretch as say the models from Men or Randyblue

          • Daddycub

            Andrew Stark has mentioned multiple times that he dates both men and women and often has a boyfriend and girlfriend simultaneously. As someone who follows his Twitter feed, he’s never been shy about this.

          • Maximus

            That’s awesome! The consensus on the post nominating him for this award seemed to be that he was G4P. No one mentioned his Twitter feed. Thanks for the info. I’ll change my original post.

          • n24rc

            Well, not exactly. He gets offended by people complaining about G4P. So it’s more like he is on the fence about what he wants.

            He considers himself “open minded” but that signals he has some issues with gayness or being identified as bisexual. It’s all very weird, and he is making it complicated than it actually is because he struggles with it.

          • Ben

            Didn’t someone here say Curtis once said he’s bi?

          • Ed Woody

            Quoted from Curtis’s own post on a Waybig thread:

            “I’m Bisexual.I said it many times on film. I don’t find men romantically attractive, only sexually. I like what is below the neck so to speak.”

            “Its not hard to be straight and do gay sex.I think it feels amazing and overtime can convert you half way between the two worlds the way it did me.”

            “I wouldn’t mind if Curtis is in every update for now on. Like the SC permanent bottom, and just rotate the tops through.”

            https://disqus.com/home/discussion/waybigcom/seancody_curtis_dean_bareback_flip_flop/#comment-2290290099

          • n24rc

            Is there such a thing as “romantically attractive”? I’ve heard of heterenormative bias, but not romantically attractive.

            If he wants to play “house” to placate some need for vindication he should go right ahead, but the stats of divorce are high even for traditional couples…so he has a higher probability of failure based on those numbers. I’m sure for his spouse, she accommodates as much as she can to maintain her self esteem of being wife.

            He votes republican and despises everything liberalism, he hates gays. There is no way around it.

          • WhimsyCotton

            Trump is a Republican and he’s never has issues with gays. Not everything is black and white.

          • Ed Woody

            “This comment was deleted”

            May I ask why?

          • n24rc

            It really should be this:

            •Andrew Stark – Bi
            •Blake Mitchell – Bi
            •Curtis – Pathetic
            •Diego Sans – Gay
            •Jarec Wentworth – Pathetic
            •Liam Riley – Gay
            •Rocco Steele – Gay
            •Tayte Hanson – Bi
            •Tom Faulk – Pathetic
            •XL – Gay

            Percentage breakdown:
            •Pathetic: 3/10 = 30%
            •Gay: 4/10 = 40%
            •Bi: 3/10 = 30%

          • Alann6

            Tayte Hanson says he’s gay 99% of the time= 1% straight.

          • WhimsyCotton

            Wow someone has a chip on his shoulder. I can understand Jarec, but what did Curtis and Tom (especially) ever do to you?

    • steve adams

      Why does it matter how the person identifies as long as he is a good representative/advocate for this community? Why is it acceptable to discriminate against straight/bi allies? Andrew Stark seems to be a stand-up guy all the way, and supportive for this community.

      http://cdn.meme.am/instances/500x/58028187.jpg

      • Maximus

        Because men who openly pursue other men as sexual and romantic partners make up enough of the population to warrant representation in entertainment media. Little gay boys deserve to have good role models. Straight allies are great, but they aren’t relatable.

        When porn producers flood the market with pictures and videos of certain types of men, they are helping to shape cultural attitudes and standards about which traits are most desirable. In this way, the G4P phenomenon propagates invalidating messages about homosexual sex: that it’s something men do because they are being payed, not because they enjoy it; that it’s something to hide and be ashamed of; that it’s unnatural; that even when men are able enjoy the physical experience, there’s never an emotional component. Those messages are damaging to any group, but gay/bi men are particularly vulnerable given the plethora of additional social factors working against us. Just look at the ridiculous rates of mental illness and victimization in our demographic.

        We’ve been so socialized to believe that “straight” = “masc” = “desirable” that we’ve developed this homophobic delusion that removing straight men from gay porn will over-saturate the market with twinky, queeny, fem, limp-wristed faggots. That notion is just so flawed. There are plenty of gay men who are traditionally masculine, but some of us refuse to believe it. Also, there’s nothing wrong with being a twinky, queeny, fem, limp-wristed faggot or being attracted to twinky, queeny, fem, limp-wristed faggots. Both types of gay men can and should be portrayed in gay porn.

        We deserve at least one type of safe-haven from heteronormativity, one domain in which we aren’t the freaks, the odd men out, the ones standing on the periphery as we look in on a world to which we cannot belong unless we deny a part of who we are. One would think that gay porn would offer that escape, but no, straight people feel the need to impose themselves upon us there as well.

        • OneOfTheManyChris

          Okay, but you think Colby Keller is a limp wristed type?

          • Maximus

            No, I see him as proof that there are gay men who are as traditionally masculine as any straight man.

          • CA

            Right, which is why he wins the big gay awards.

            What you aren’t going to see, is overwhelming adoration for effeminate men in porn. Gay men are obsessed with proving masculine gay men exist to fit a societal norm of how men should act, regardless of orientation.

            The societal norm is: masculine male, heterosexual, of European decent white, Christian. Anything other than that, you check the other box: female, muslim, black, an effeminate male, etc.

            Those who fit the norm closest–in the order listed–reap the rewards of that demographic more than those who do not. We see each minority group who checks “other” struggling to prove and match their groups norm to the societal norm i identified above.

            Colby Keller checks all of the boxes but one–and he is hailed as an ideal archetype in the gay community; Masculine gay man.

            XL who garners much attention on blogs checks all of these but race and orientation. As a black man, his facial attributes are aligned to that of someone from European decent–meaning he looks white other than his actual skin color. Black men who have more European facial features, win far more favor in society than those black men who look farther from that norm.

            I write all of this I guess to just question why we worry about straight men in porn, when the issue is that even if they are all removed, we would still look to saturate the market with Colby Keller’s an XL’s who are successful for the reason that they are similar enough to the world norms that they are actually just mirrors of what the gay community wants to be, as close to a masculine male, heterosexual, of European decent white, Christian as possible.

          • Maximus

            I think you’ve identified an additional and equally important issue within the gay porn industry and Western culture in general.

          • n24rc

            I don’t think Colby has that much notoriety to be considered an archetype. Not only that, peoples’ varieties of tastes to what kind of men they are attracted to sways their opinion.

            In both your and Maximus’ cases you find Colby attractive because of his “masculine traits” because you have some insecurities about your masculinity.

            I used to find him attractive because he was slutty, but now he is pretensions enough to turn me off. Like you and Maximus, you should find that stuff hot so go ahead, but don’t conflate your estimations of porn performers, and who is “hot” or masculine, with everyone else. People are different from each other and drawn to others for different reasons.

            Some men love G4P because they are self loathing and need to feel vindicated by their earlier obsessions or infatuation with some straight they couldn’t have.

          • CA

            Could you cease writing to me and telling me what I like and don’t like–you read a few posts that I place on a blog and presume to know me.

            I used Colby Keller as my example because he was selected as porn star of the year last year, so clearly the majority of blog readers here agree with my use of him, not because he fits some archetype of who and what I find attractive.

            It’s like you want to pick a fight to prove your point and if you actually thought about what I wrote, I am likely aligned with your opinions on this topic.

          • n24rc

            Take your own advice about presumption, you’ve written three or four posts about something you assume to be gospel.

            You’ve taken your own perspective about the world and people in it, and assume it’s the same as others.

          • CA

            There are some universal truths that do not need to be nor should be up for debate–as they are supported but the overwhelming majority of people.

            For example, there is little assumption and very few people who would dispute the fact that effeminate men are often teased and ridiculed by not only the larger society, but our own people.

            Based on your repetitive comments and attacks on posters, I believe we share the same opinion on this topic. Again, you seem to be looking to fight or debate something unnecessarily…and you’re not good at it.

          • Xavier Westenra

            He dosent look white. There are billions of Africans from west Africa and the Sahel who have features like them, every time someone sees good looking black dude who dosent look like the stereotypical and physically one dimensional definition of a “negro”, someone has to go and say he’s looks white

          • CA

            He most certainly has features similar to Europeans–that is not said to ignore his own racial identity. I do not think he looks bi-racial if that is what you mean.

          • n24rc

            Sounds like you have a problem with effeminate men.

            So far I would say there are no clear winners there!

          • Maximus

            I would argue that Liam Riley is a good role model. He’s comfortable and confident about who he is and subverts traditional expectations that people have of him based on his stature and mannerisms. He stays out of trouble, seems intelligent, and isn’t doing porn because of some financial desperation. His sexuality and porn career aren’t shameful secrets that he keeps from friends and family. That all sounds like a winner to me, which is why I voted for him.

          • n24rc

            Yes, I think it’s sad that he was ridiculed in the beginning. And he lost his job as a cheerleader trainer, all that “scandal” over a bunch of nothing. It’s so silly, and he seems to be okay.

  • hotdickcum

    I think Will Braun should be in the list. It was his year… Started in men on February and been exclusive top, then had his bottom debut, then turned into a bottom whore. He also had a personal drama during Thanksgiving. And his nerdy look is really like able.

    • Tim

      if he keeps it up, I’ll agree with you next year, but nothing of his stood out. he wasn’t in the way in any of them, but he wasn’t excellent either.

    • Ben

      Why not? It’s not like we’re trying to award them Gay person of the year. we’re voting for GAY PORN star of the year. As long as they give good performances, why should we care about their sexuality?

      • This is just simply MY opinion! :) I know a lot of gay porn viewers love ‘Gay4Pay’ Porn stars as long as they perform well. I agree to an extent But to me you can tell when it’s a scene where it’s 2 guys who are actually enjoying the sex. Js…

        • Ben

          No, I totally understand that your opinion. I just dont understand the logic behind it. and it’s not just you. I’ve seen a lot of people here who been posting the same thing. I just don’t see the problem. I could not care less if they’re straight or bi or gay or what their personal beliefs are. If they can convince me on screen they are doing a great job fucking/getting fucked a guy, then I’m fine with them.

          • I know. I have been a big fan of past gay4pay porn stars. Such as Brady Jensen, Jeremy Bilding for example. Just In my opinion the one’s out right now, I can not connect with. And don’t feel they have performed as well as other ‘Gay porn stars’ that are gay or bi.

            May I remind you SeanCody’s ‘Brandon’ Disaster Debut bottom scene?

          • Ben

            I don’t know why you’re bringing up Brandon here lol. I’m a fan of his. Again, as I said, if they give good performances on screen. That’s what should matter, since this is a gay porn after all. Brandon is not a good performer IMO. he was an average top at best and his bottom scene was awful that it shouldn’t even be put on the site.

            Curtis is far more superior bottom and top IMO compared to other “nominees”. as he’s a crazy republican but who cares. He can deepthroat like no other. He can fuck too.

            and SMH for voting XL because he’s gay. He’s a boring performer.

          • Mihcael Davies

            XL is not boring, what scenes of his have you looked at exactly? He’s passionate, versatile and always present in his scenes. Curtis being a dickpig doesn’t make him a better performer

So much plastic surgery. first Picture on the left- Her in 2000 second Pic on the right- Now her in 2015/2016. She was a teenager in the pic inserted, now she’s 38. If That’s someone who’s F’d their face up on plastic surgery then idk what a good plastic surgery outcome is.

      • Lol… Used a picture from the 90’s when she was teenager and then a photoshopped picture. Oh And btw I as a bi man. I guess i would apply to his statement. I am not clamoring on to “this bitch” because she’s a “diva” and “she’s ratchet” I’ve been of a fan of the Braxtons since I was a kid. I’m 19 now and a big fan of Tamar. She’s not a “bitch”

      Yes, yes, yes

  • Pascal

    Zach made it easy for you this year people: just go to the last line, click that box and you’re done. No confusing reading or looking at tube sites to refresh your memory: just click the last choice and a porn angel gets his wings and buttfucked.

    The last line you hear. (praying that Zach doesn’t start randomizing the list)

  • JonnyM

    Curtis

  • Stephen

    Tayte Hanson. Not because he’s the hottest, but because his scenes were the most prolific and his social media was on point. I personally think the hottest guy is XL, but he’s unable to really build as much momentum. I don’t think it’s because of his race (which it could be), but a) his stage name, which makes him hard to market and b) the studios he works for. I really hope XL can have a great run in the future because he has all the goods.

  • Spongey

    I voted for Diego Sans but XL was a very, very close second. Just can’t help my attraction to Diego.

    • andrew

      Yep. Diego has morphed into a porn god.

  • atlas

    i voted jarec all the way. but fingers crossed for rocco :3
    i think the rest of the comments have made their voices clear though…

  • Eric AS

    I appreciate how discussions regarding gay porn stars’ performances invariably deteriorate into who’s gay, who’s faking it for dough, and who’s just a part time gay boy. Tenacious journalists rarely dig up as much ancient history when grilling political scapegoats, as the commentators of this blog. Being that this competition isn’t for gay man of the year, or pornstar who is gay, I suggest the fellow voting public investigate the performers based on the criteria of the award. Were their performances jizz worthy? Did their moves make you rethink a studio, themselves as well as a scene partner? Have you gone looking for all their appearances after a standout fuck this year?
    Or you can continue to debate gender theory with strangers online about a bunch of pretty boys. The odds are, you haven’t gotten the chance to ask any of them their orientation (and my bet is you’d ask any for 30 minutes in the supply closet instead). But just be aware, you’re engaging in intellectual self gratification on a site known for informing the physical kind.

    • Swifty

      Oh ok :) Vote for XL once you’re done :)

      • WhimsyCotton

        How does one vote? I don’t see a poll anywhere.

    • Binary Busting Boo Boo Kitty

      Or you can continue to be a shallow jackass who makes lengthy comments complaining that other people can, in fact, debate gender theory. hey, you know what? maybe people think about their porn differently than you? gee, what a concept. fucktard.

        • Ben

          Have you been tp a gay bar recently? Guys like him are dime a dozen. Short, overly muscled, blonde and white.

          • Benton Fraser

            He’s a hot number! Sadly, the bars in my area are a tad, short, on lovely eye candy.

      • andrew

        It’s 2016 and you still use the insulting and offensive term “midget”.

        • Ben

          *rolls eyes* okay SJW.

          • andrew

            Nope. Just a guy who doesn’t understand why a gay person, in particular, would use such an offensive and degrading term.

          • Ben

            It’s 2016. Stop getting so offended by every little thing. Words can only hurt by your own perception of those words.

          • andrew

            Instead of attempting to justify your use of the derogatory and offensive word, why not join decent people and delete the “M” word from your vocabulary? In this the 21st century, most decent people have deleted many offensive and derogatory terms that were once in common usage.

          • Ben

            Okay. Cool. Wear your SJW title on your forehead, Mr. Perfect.

          • andrew

            I’m far from “Mr. Perfect” and not an “SJW”. I was just pointing out to you that the “M” word is derogatory and offensive and perhaps you, who may thoughtlessly use the word, will delete it from your vocabulary.

          • sora

            Hi Ben. I do not appreciate the use of the “M” word in much the same way as I do not appreciate the use of the “N” word and the “F” word. While some may adopt the stance that words only have power if you give them, it is really hurtful when you are called the “M” word to your face on a regular basis and other people around you may find nothing wrong with it. It is demeaning and exasperating, especially given the word’s connotation. I am not a “midget.” I am a dwarf. The man you are describing is not a dwarf.

          • Ben

            You might wanna get off the internet if words like Midget or Faggot hurt you. It’s because people like you these words are “hurtful”. They don’t have to be but you choose to. and last you can only speak for yourself, not for every little/gay person out there. I will use the word faggot or midget as I please because I can. I have not and won’t use the word “N” because I’m not African American and I am not part of that community to reclaim that word.

          • andrew

            If you don’t use the “N” word because “I am not an African American and I am not part of that community to reclaim that word.” Why do you use the “M” word unless you are a dwarf?

          • Ben

            What part of that post did you not get? Do I have to spell it out for you, dumbo? I am, what some people, would call Midget, little person, dwarf.

            Happy? Do I need send you a picture of myself holding a today’s newspaper too?

            Fuckin’ moron.

          • Ben

            I did many times. What the fuck else do you want to say. I’ll use the word faggot and midget as much as I like. You don’t get to re-claim those words for me. I know many other little people/gay people who refer themselves as midgets/faggots. You wanna be a SJW on the internet, That’s your business. You wanna be sensitive little bitch who gets offended by everything, that’s your privilege. But you don’t get to reclaim those words for me, so there.

          • andrew

            I’m not interested in “reclaiming” those vulgar insensitive words, that you so freely throw around. I and a whole lot of other people want to assign them to the trash bin of bigoted history where they belong. Your participation in keeping them alive is what is pathetic.

          • Ben

            Cool. that is your opinion. You do you. I do me. Me and many other people I know are not as uptight as you are. Please keep your hippie opinion to yourself. I am not interested in it. I’ll use the word faggot/midget as much as I like.

          • andrew

            I’m “uptight” and a “hippie”. LOL

          • sora

            While that may be your point of view, other people think differently.

          • Ben

            I never said it wasnt. Im saying you say what you say. I say what i say. I dont tell you what to say at the same dont tell me what not to say. You have your opinion. I have mine

          • Ben

            this is my last answer to your endless questions and constant need to be “explained” and apparently you’re a bit “slow” since you need everything to be spelled out for you. I’ve told you many times already you don’t get to reclaim those words for me. to me midget = short = dwarf. and darius is short, I call every short person a midget. Same with the word faggot. Faggot = gay. If these words mean differently to you, that’s your business. I’m not trying for you to change your definitions of these words. You shouldn’t try to change mine either.

            So, go back to your little internet corner and be the SJW you wanna be.

          • andrew

            The ignorant and insensitive words that you use to label people have real world meanings. They don’t get their meanings from you or me. You might benefit from a little introspection. Ask yourself why you have a need to put other people down. You respond to people’s admiration of Darius Ferdynand’s physical beauty with “guys like him are a dime a dozen”. That’s clearly not the case. You have the need to refer to me as “dumbo”. “moron” and “slow” when that is also clearly not the case. Maybe if you developed more self confidence, your need to put others down would lessen or even disappear.

          • Ben

            LOL at your lame attempt from the word midget to “now I have issues with the dime a dozen” comment.

            I don’t need to put other down. This is a GAY PORN forum. PEOPLE have opinions. People have preferences who they want to see in their porn. It’s not offensive to say Darius is dime a dozen.

            Have you not been reading other comments in this thread? or this site? Even Zach has preferences and have expressed his disapproval towards certain scenes. What did you expect here? everyone to worship every gay porn star and be all happy and hippie and sing kumbaya? This is a gay porn site. One of my fav porn stars is Peter from SC but I have read some people dislike his face and say his dick is ugly. Did I go ballistic over it? No.

            MAYBE, just maybe, if you understand that other people’s opinions are just as valid as yours (how different they are might be) then, only then you can get off your high horse.

            This has nothing to do with my self confidence, I have called you all those things because you are of those things …. because you kept asking the same questions over and overagain and feel the need to put your hippie perspective of how people should interact onto me.

            Did you also write a letter to RuPaul or Logo because they use the word Cunt on the show? Tranny? How about the N word being spoken by Louis CK on his stand up? or the word faggot being thrown around on social media.. How sad your life must be.

            Seriously, you live in your little box and expect everyone to “understand” “accept” and “follow” your POV but guess what? Maybe you’re the one who needs to develop some self confidence, get out a little bit more and see the world and realize that you are not the only one who lives on this earth.

          • andrew

            I clearly struck a nerve with my comment that a lack of self worth might be the cause of you’re needing to put other people down. Think about it.

          • Ben

            Lol. Okay, cool.

          • Ben

            nice try at diverting my comments and questions and turning them into something else.

          • andrew

            Not diverting at all. Just pointing out that your need to label people with what are, universally considered, offensive labels may come from your own lack of real self worth.

          • Ben

            Okay. I am done with this conversation. You’re right. I’m wrong. I have low/no self esteem at all. I am tired of arguing with attention seeking SJW.

          • andrew

            While you’re at it, drop the “SJW” comment. It’s lame, overused and doesn’t apply. If you think that you are tired of arguing with me, just think how I feel arguing with a “moron” like you. LOL

          • Ben

            and also you called me an asshole. Did I go cry about it? please don’t act like you’re a virgin mary. It’s pathetic.

          • andrew

            Unfortunately I responded to you calling me “dumbo” and “moron” by calling you an asshole. That’s out of character for me and I’ll see that it doesn’t happen again. Why not try the introspection that I suggested. I think that if you had a better opinion of yourself, you might not need to put other people down.

    Can we stop supporting dudes who favor a straight life over gay people. Why are we even still supporting these people ? Where is your self respect gay dudes ? Clearly these “str8/bi/g4p” people have no respect for us. let’s leave them in the dust.

    • n24rc

      I think that’s a matter of debate about married men in porn(with women)… I think you can have sex with whomever you want, but just be honest about it.

      Frankly, with porn, there seems to be a lack of integrity and honesty about it. It’s sad in a way because most gay men are looking for a way to channel their sexuality because they are in hostile regions or areas and can’t get access to others, and the only outlet is porn.That’s what I like about some porn stars, who get this.

      Even some of the “straight” ones who live in the grey area of sexuality, they’ve openly champion gay sexuality and say they enjoy for the reasons it helps deprived people.

      But then you get some guys who are just total douchebags and self loathing closet cases. They are the most common, and it’s sad to see them in this industry which I’m sure on some level helps gays. Or ideally, could help gays, but can’t because people lose their way with the fame and drugs that goes to there head. I assume it’s like any other industry there is a seedy underbelly that discards people and uses them for short term gains.

      • Xavier Westenra

        I see what you’re saying but the fact still stands that we cannot expect to have ultimate GAY pride when we are constantly lifting bisexuals and closet cases and deeming them as “sex gods”. Time and time again they prove how they have no respect for gays. I know not all bisexuals are like this, but its definitely more than a few, probably more than half. I also dont pay any attention to the tilte gayforpay. Clearly any man who defines himself as g4p is simply a bisexual who refuses to except his homoness. For instance with someone like Tom Faulk who claims gays are only good enough for him to fuck but not to date… there is no excuse why someone like that should still be supported by gay men or have ANY standing with us at all. While I know its “just porn” and most people would wonder why we would make such a fuss out of what a PORNSTAR ( regardless of his sexual orientation ) would say. The fact of the matter is Gay culture is a culture based on sexuality and for us these things actually matter. Everything we do and say is political regardless of it seeming petty.

        • WhimsyCotton

          Don’t speak for all of us please and thank you. I’m not a biphobe, and I have no issue who a bisexual fucks, dates, or marries in his private life because I’m aware of what a bisexual is and that not all of them come in a 50/50 version.

          • Xavier Westenra

            I’m not concerned with whether or not they’re 50/50 sexually. Biphobia is a made up concept for bisexuals and social justice warriors to avoid taking responsibility for the shitty things they do. It’s easier to not take responsibility for comments like “Fucking a gay man is like fucking a watermelon” ” I’d never marry a gay man but i’ll marry a woman, I only like to fuck gay guys but that’s all”, when you can just say its “biphobic” to criticize them for it. It’s a known fact that bisexuals tend to remain in straight relationships on a MUCH greater ratio then they remain in gays. Bisexuals also come out of the closet at a much lower rate than full fledged Gays. If it wern’t for Gays and Trans people paving the way and refusing to back down for injustice, bisexuals would STILL be cowering in the closet with their wives while simultaneously fucking gay men on the side…. oh wait, they still do ! They also rarely come out to their girlfriends/hetero counterparts because they know that most straight women will not have anything to do with it. On the other hand they are brazen when they deal with Gay men because they know when they enter the gay community they’ll be hailed as the sexiest, closest to straight, therefore the most desirable in the eyes of many gay men, hence why the producers of Sean Cody tried to make Devon Hunter ( and countless other i’m sure) say he was bisexual. I’m not saying that bisexauls should start favoring Gays if they dont want to. It’s fine, let them leave, but WE shouldn’t be supporting them either. It shows that Gays have a lack of self respect when we continuously endorse these type of men.

          • WhimsyCotton

            Why should they care about our feelings lol? No one owes you anything part from your Constitutional rights.

            In that giant wall of text you basically addressed your own issues. Bisexuals tend to stay in heterosexual relationships because much of the gay community criticizes them for existing. If they’re in a gay relationship, then they were gay all along and were just pretending to be bi. If they’re in a straight relationship, they’re attacked for being liars who aren’t really part of the LGBT. And that’s just the gay community. To the straight community they’re just sex-crazed homosexuals who want to infect women with STIs. So, no shit, bisexuals tend to stay in the closet; it’s far easier than putting up with bullshit from both sides of the pond.

            I’m also quite curious where the ridiculous notion of gay men being “obsessed with straight men” comes from. I see it mentioned endlessly, but I’ve yet to ever see someone comment about how they prefer seeing straight men in their gay porn. All I ever hear is how straight men are ruining the gay porn industry.

          • Xavier Westenra

            Saying I addressed my own issues and then coming up with reasons all pertaining to the gay community as to’why bisexuals stay in the closet’ is both hypocritical and ridiculous. First of all Bisexuals are not remaining in the closet because they are so afraid and hurt by Gay people. If that was the case then they wouldn’t be with straight people as much as they are because most straight people wont even give bisexuals a chance in dating whereas in the Gay community you can make a MINT off of Gay people as a Bisexual ! Gays are much more likely to give bisexuals a chance than a straight person because when a straight person encounters a bisexual they have to deal with becoming apart of something taboo which for many straight people is just not something they are willing to even consider. My purpose in this post is not to start a discussion about bi erasure and to be honest… who gives a shit if people dont believe bisexuals are actually “bi” ? Bisexuals love to make a big deal out of nothing with that. Gay people deal with a lot of the same accusations bisexuals claim they are constantly accused of ( accusations of sluttyness, lack of commitment, etcetra ) the difference is Gay people arent running around lying about it. Everyone knows the gay community is fulled with slut culture, but only when you say it about bisexuals then all of a sudden they have an emotional breakdown. When I came out as gay i had people tell me they didn’t “believe” me too and guess what …. I didn’t give a shit whether or not they believed it, I didn’t turn into a crybaby and whine “homophobia” or “homophobia erasure”. I simply kept it moving and dated who I wanted that wanted me back… simple. At this point I’m not interested in debating and questioning Bisexuals on why they prefer and respect straight people more. What matters to me Is that we encourage GAY pride for GAY people and not support bisexuals who dont support gays and self proclaimed g4pers or any other str8 wannabes both in and outside of porn.

            As far as Gay men being obsessed with straight men, of course they are. The producers that tried to make Devon Hunter say he was bisexual said it would sell better, and whether i like it or not they are right ! Gay people are fixated with this Idea of having a man that is as close to being as straight as it gets. Obviously none of the men in gay porn calling themselves straight are actually STRAIGHT, but they know Gay men are stupid and Str8-thirsty enough to sit and ponder and get hot and bothered and horny over a “straight man” having gay sex. The reason is because Gay people are stereotyped as being feminine, and truthfully yes there are alot of fem gays. However a feminine male is rarely ( if ever ) seen as attractive, even by other gay men. Masculinity is considered a preferred trait, a straight male is seen as the pinnacle of masculinity so basically it breaks down like this

            Hot = Masculine
            Masculine = Straight
