Coming next week: The 40 Best BelAmi Gay Porn Stars Of All Time (20-1)

  • Clusterfuck

    ZAC ATTACK FROM THE BACK!

    Zac is destined for the top 20, maybe even top 10 with that face, that bod, that cock and the loads that cum out of it.

  • Buzzaki

    Sascha and Ariel satisfy my butt fetish.

  • Buzzaki

    Johan has not aged well.

    • McM.

      What do you think happens to all these twinks appearing in videos at 18-to-early-20s years old? They finish growing up.

      Johan Paulik was 18 or 19 when he began filming with BelAmi, and like a lot of guys that age his body was still in a state of maturation. The look these guys have when they are younger cannot be maintained when they’re in their 30s; and if it is, it’s kinda weird.

      People need to give guys a break for growing up and aging.

      • JJ

        Exactly. He had a teenage boy physique then. His last porn work was in 2000 at age 24/25.

      • WhimsyCotton

        Some beauty is too stubborn to fade.

      • WhimsyCotton

        Some beauty is too stubborn to fade. Just ask Lukas Ridgeston, now in his 40s.

        • moondoggy

          Oh jesus, why did you post that picture? You just fucked up my whole day. If given the chance, I would lick that man’s body until I needed tongue reconstructive surgery.

          This is one of the most interesting lists ever put here. I know people are rooting for guys they think are hotter like Mick or (for my taste) possibly Jack Harrer. But there are several criteria here for which only Lukas could win. Whose career was longer? Whose impact was greater (on both sides of the camera)? If I may avail myself of a line from Macbeth, that’s where the battle’s lost and won.

          He would make my list even without the 90s portion of his career. His beauty is absurd.

          • moondoggy
          • andrew

            Oh those captivating eyes.

          • WhimsyCotton

            I totally agree. From 1993 to 2013 Lukas was physically perfect. The impact of ‘Lucky Lukas’ made Bel Ami a household name in the West. Jesus, I still remember the first time I saw that movie back in 2007. My young brain couldn’t comprehend how those guys were real.

        • Jason

          I think he looks better now than he did earlier. Never got into him when he was a performer.

    • JJ

      He’s okay looking. That’s just a bad shot of him.

    • moondoggy

      I NEVER found him attractive. I never once understood his appeal.

  • Steve

    You have Sebastian ranked way too low.

    • Lee

      Sebastian and Gino are easily in their top 20. Probably top 10.

    • Russell47

      Both Sebastian & Dano Sulik belong in the top 20, IMO too

  • Maximus

    I personslly am not a fan of Bel Ami, so it only makes sense to post a comment bringing down all of those who do enjoy that studio instead of just keeping my negativity to myself… DISLIKE! INVALIDATION! SNIDE REMARKS! BITCHY GIF!

  • Texndoc

    Dano Sulik was so good on camera they made him one of their “trainers” for that series when they would pair new then-amateurs with their pros. At least he knew what he was doing and gave them a good topping. So much of BelAmi to me never gets past the “petting stage”. It’s like Lisa Simpson’s “Non-threatening porn”.

    • von schlomo

      I wanted the “Personal Trainers” series to go on forever, but I was told by someone who was also industry savvy and not as biased as I was that nothing can continue indefinitely and the product has to change in order to keep loyalists from getting bored and to snag new consumers. It just seemed to me that the very essence of the “Personal Trainers” line was pairing popular, established, experienced models with innocent, naive, cherry brand new ones in order to keep the Bel Ami train a rollin’. This formula has been in existence for decades and will continue on for decades to come. Why? Because it just makes sense.

  • Pascal

    Will Mick Lovell be #1, numero uno or Number One? I can’t wait for the exciting reveal next week…

    • Zachary Sire

      You’ll find out soon honey!

      • JJ

        Who is ranking them?

        • Zachary Sire

          me

          • JJ

            Finally you reply to me!

      • Pascal

        Ooooh is there a twist? Is Mick tied with another performer? (Or two, all Men new exclusive ~poll-like?)

  • JJ

    Oooooo laaa LAAA!!!!

    I have been in love with Sebastian Bonnet for years now. I miss him.
    Florian Nemec looks so good there. He now cam on F4F.
    Manuel and Sascha are also on F4F.
    Claude Sorel? Cute!
    Marcel? He’s gonna be one big sex tree!

  • JJ

    I would love to know more about Gino Mosca. Where did he learn to speak English?

    • von schlomo

      Have you checked out his earliest work with William Higgins? AFAIK, that was his start in the business. He was Karel Ceman for WH back in 2010-11. According to the GEVI, he only did 5 scenes, 2 of which were the obligatory solo and video of the still photography, “Session Stills”. The others were a massage video, probably with an anonymous “mature” guy, a wrestling video with Ivan Vladik and an “Airport Security” scene with Honza Franzl & Ruda Dlouhan. The last two scenes are apparently available on WH’s Str8hell site. The Airport scene is good because he speaks in English with an American accent thru the whole thing while the other two guys are speaking Czech. I think the story is supposed to be how an American traveller was detained by two Czech airport security guards. The bad part is the two Czech guys are NOT at all attractive, IMO.

      I, too, am interested in how he learned American English and became so exceptionally proficient. A great idea would be for Bel Ami to use him to clean up their often times atrocious English subtitles in all their videos.

      • JJ

        Nope. Haven’t seen his non BA work. Didn’t even know he started somewhere else first.

        Yes. I am curious about his proficiency as well. I wonder whether he lived in an English-speaking country for some time to achieve it.

        Atrocious subtitles? I thought the subs were very good.

        • von schlomo

          Do you speak Czech or Slavic or Hungarian? I don’t. The style, tone and meter of the subtitles are unfortunately not how anyone speaks English. Also, ever notice how with the interviews in the solo’s the boys either speak in gender neutral “partner” or they just simply use male pronouns. It’s not really plausible than none of them ever talk about girls. The guys remarks are obviously edited.

          Gino Mosca was Alf Luganis in his Bel Ami initial solo’s. He also not only speaks fluent English, but with an American accent. Most of them who get really good at English sound British.

          • JJ

            Nope. I don’t speak Hungarian nor Slavic languages.

            “The style, tone and meter of the subtitles are unfortunately not how anyone speaks English.”

            What? Not how anyone speaks it or not how one would expect a BA boy to speak? Is it because the subs are too perfect?

            “ever notice how with the interviews in the solo’s the boys either speak in gender neutral “partner” or they just simply use male pronouns. It’s not really plausible than none of them ever talk about girls. The guys remarks are obviously edited.”

            I’m pretty sure they are. The vast majority of these BA boys are not gay so yeah I’m sure most of their sex have been with chicks. I think they just don’t want to ruin the fantasy of being “available” to their predominantly gay market.
            You know, I happen to know Sebastian Bonnet’s real given name and I even heard his real name being used to call him in one of his scenes while they were speaking in Czechoslovak.

            Re: Gino Mosca.

            Yes, he has an American sounding accent. I first noticed it watching him in one of Davey Wavey’s videos. His accent stood out to me. I wonder what his background is.

          • von schlomo

            Usually when one interprets the language of another one doesn’t use a strictly literal interpret but rather how a native speaker would say it. So, you don’t end up with strange or awkward phrasing. Many of the BA boys speak a bit of English and it sometimes shows up in the videos but the subtitles shouldn’t sound like they do.

          • JJ

            “but the subtitles shouldn’t sound like they do.”

            That’s pretty obvious. That’s how translation is. You often can’t translate stuff verbatim as there is often no equivalent way of saying something of your language in another. So of course what they say has been edited, refined to help English speakers understand it(of course not completely).

            But I have to say that many of them who have taken some English lessons are quite fluent. I chat to a few BA boys on Flirt4Free and you can understand them pretty well and they you as well(some more than others). Adam Archuleta and Jean Daniel have a pretty good command of the language. Jean told me that he took English lessons in South Africa for 3 month(5 days per week) with other BA boys.

          • von schlomo

            Sorry, it seemed like you didn’t understand my point.

            My point is, BA’s subtitles are never refined, mostly awkward and if Gino Mosca did them they wouldn’t be.

            I have never chatted with any of them so my impression of their command of the English language is solely based on the videos. I’m not imminently familiar with learning another language but if being fluent in another language means you don’t have a thick accent, the only one I’ve heard fluent is Gino. It seems to me that being 100% familiar with another language is one thing and being familiar with the pronunciation, so you don’t have a thick accent, is another. For example, there are foreign born professors that teach at US universities who have larger vocabularies than I have but still don’t know or don’t bother pronouncing things like we do and have a thick accent.

          • JJ

            Awkward? It doesn’t seem that to me.

            No, you can be fluent in another language yet still retain a strong accent. Have you heard of writers like Elif Safak and Ayn Rand? Both fluent non native English speakers who write in English(although English became Ayn’s first language and Elif is still a native Turkish speaker) yet they still have an accent. So yes, being familiar with the accent is another thing.

            Have you read Johan Paulik’s diary at johansjournal.com? His writing and vocabulary is impressive yet he still has a strong. Same Lukas Ridgeston(check out a video message he made on Bel Ami’s YouTube page).

  • Izzy

    Adam is perfect. The End

  • Jax

    I think Ariel Vanean at least deserved a spot in the top 20.

  • sxg

    No doubt a goodlooking bunch, but beyond boring as far as performers go, with a few exceptions.

  • Okosan

    They all look the same tbh not much diversity.

    • kungalv

      Blue eyes, brown eyes, green eyes gray eyes, hazel eyes,, blonde hair, platinum blonde, ash blonde, brunette, red hair, czechs, slovaks, hungarians, russians, poles, ukrainians, germans, a few Americans, gay, straight, bi – yes there is diversity and I LOVE IT 😀

      • Erik

        Very well expressed! I agree very much. A sidenote comment – I don´t think BelAmi has had any german models, but I could be wrong.

    • WhimsyCotton

      That’s racist. You wouldn’t say all Asians look alike would you? The Eastern European region is home to many different ethnic groups. It may not be a continent or even a very large region, but the people there probably don’t think they look alike at all.

      • Ithaphithin

        You can’t call someone racist for pointing out racism. How many non-white models have worked with Bel Ami?

        • kungalv

          Honey, customers are always right. 100% of BelAmi subscribers wanna watch ethnic czechs, slovaks, ukrainians, russians and poles having sex on camera. Talking about European diversity! That’s so hot

          • Erik

            European diversity – good expression!

        • lordgabux

          Seriously? there are porn sites specifically black. Why don’t you go there and demand to have white actors in there videos? Do you go to the Japanese sites and demand to have other races there? So obnoxious.

        • WhimsyCotton

          You can’t hire Black models if they don’t exist (and the few that do aren’t up to Bel Ami standards, trust me I’ve seen the few Black models in Czech porn). We’re talking about the Czech Republic and Hungary. It might be a different story if Bel Ami were located in France or Germany.

          Also, generalizing all Bel Ami models as “White” is like saying all Hispanics are Caucasian. Sure, if you get down to bare bones classifications Eastern Europeans are probably mainly Caucasoids, but there are dozens of ethnic groups intermixed that make them more than just White. Just like there are various ethnic groups (and races) that make Hispanics more than just Caucasian.

        • Bel Ami models are mostly from Eastern European countries, that’s why you won’t find non white boys among them.

      • kungalv

        Agree, I could say the same about gay porn sites that only employ black models. “They all look the same tbh not much diversity. WHERE ARE THE WHITE GUYS? FUCKING RACIST” Let’s get real here. BelAmi subcribers want white models. George Duroy (the owner) is giving them want they want. That is white models.

      • kungalv

        Don’t worry, he’s a minority here. Everyone talks about this wonderful list, not about the lack of diversity.

        • lordgabux

          there is always some obnoxious person that has to bring the race card to the freaking porn lists (or anything else for the matter) Geez, get a grip, grlz. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and those not found beautiful by that holder shouldn’t be offended. Lord have mercy on these obnoxious people…

      • Okosan

        I Meant Body Structure Not Race And Most Look Very Young.

  • Tellingthetruth

    These are the hottest models in the business hands down.

  • CK

    I’m curious to see if Mick Lovell makes the top 20, because I really can’t cherry pick any qualities that would put him above Gino, Adam and most of the other models. Looks aside, he’s a terrible performer, even by BelAmi’s standard.

    • Erik

      I totally disagree. TheSword mentioned Mick this spring as “the BelAmi model of the decade” and I do agree. Powerbottom, amazing at deepthroating, good kisser, relaxed and handsome as hell! Very tall (6,3/1,91m) and muscular. Yes, there has been some average scenes (and average minus) with Mick, but I mostly blame his costars (acting moaning for example).

      • CK

        I disagree. If Mick Lovell is a powerbottom, then everyone is a power bottom. He’s handsome as hell, of course, but he pretty much stands/lays lifelessly there in all his scene regardless of whether he is topping or bottoming and his cocksucking skills are average at best. I have a ton of his scenes, because he’s beautiful, but if I were to take performance into account, I probably wouldn’t pay him any mind.

        • Erik

          I would recommend Mick´s scenes with Manuel Rios, Dolph Lambert/Alex Waters and Vadim for example. They are really great. Mick is very agile and open to do new things. For example – he has done a train fuck (being in the middle) and received a “cum-in-mouth” with Philippe Gaudin in South Africa. Not many porn stars do that. His deep throating capabilities are shown in many scenes. If you want a example of his very good cock sucking skills – watch the scene where he blows Dolph Lambert. As I said there are also average scenes like Mick´s scenes with Claude Sorel, Johnny Bloom and Todd Rosset.

          • CK

            I’ve seen them. I’ve actually seen all his scenes and because I <3 Dolph Lambert/Alex Waters that particular scene is one of my faves. I like the guy more than it probably shows in my critiques. I just don't think in an ranking system that judges the Bel Ami models on more than just attractiveness that he would be anywhere near the top 20 or place above Gino Mosca, Sascha Chaykin, or Adam Archuleta. They've all done what he does, but they've been much better at it.

          • Erik

            Thanks for replying. I like Gino and Adam too. And Dolph and Sascha are among my top favorites. But I think Mick is better than those four guys except Dolph. But I´m fully aware that this is my opinion. Glad to hear that you said you like Mick more than it shows in the text. You have obviously seen all his scenes. But what annoys me is that some judge Mick from his bad/average scenes. Lastly – another reason I got “hooked” on Mick was his BelAmiMick-twitter. Funny (witty), personal and kind/warm. Mick is also often (but not always) relaxed, playful and happy in the Belami docus.

  • S .

    It’s going to be one of those inevitable Kevin-Jack-Lukas-Kris showdowns, huh?

  • keldommage

    I hope THE MAJESTIC yves carradine, ethan clarke and claude cocteau all make their rightful appearance in the top 20, if not the top 10.

    • Rick Tan

      Yves Carradine is a vision.

    • von schlomo

      Often times, the problem with these greatest lists of all time is most people’s appraisals are skewed toward the more recent.

      • keldommage

        you’re right and there is just no comparison between the golden era of belami when the boys were cream of the crop, male-model breathtaking like lukas, yves, claude, ethan, sebastian, tim h. but particularly yves.

  • Rick Tan

    You better not forget about Ion Davidov, one of the hottest men I’ve ever seen in porn.

  • Rick Tan

    Bitch are you on crack? By what Criteria is Ariel Vanean behind Jean-Daniel?

  • ansonsf

    Would you say that some on the list would have been higher if they had been at Bel Ami longer? I expect that Joel Birkin, Adam, Andre and Ariel will rank higher later in their careers. That said, I am a big Bel Ami fan and all the boys are beautiful. My vote for #1 – The American, Mick Lovell.

    • Erik

      Agree very much on Mick Lovell as #1.

    • WhimsyCotton

      Adam, Andre, and Ariel have been with Bel Ami for like 5+ years now haven’t they?

  • C3xxx

    Not in any particular order; Alan Connery, Jason Paradis, Tommy Hansen, Ion Davidov, Julian Armanis, Marc Vidal, and Jim Kerouac.

  • elle

    Bullshit. No. No & fuck no. Did you throw darts to decide? vanean, bonnet, saradon & sulik all out of top 20….puh-lease. Try Again

  • Erik

    At first – thanks to Zach for doing this list. As a long-time BelAmi fan it´s great fun to read. When you are creating such a list you have to deal with a problem. Should you rate the model´s looks or his performing skills? Or both?

    Anyway – of course everybody has different opinions about which guys should be in this list. I would like to move up the following guys to the list 20-1: Marcel Gassion (one of the best bottoms at BA), Sascha Chaykin (one of BA´s best bodies), Manuel Rios (Natural bottom), Sebastian Bonnet (one of my biggest faves!), Andre Boleyn (totally at ease when he bottoms) and lastly – the Peters twins (a little goofy faces but good performers with amazing bodies).

    I will await the 20-1 list with great interest. seems a long time to next week. :)

  • Sebastian S

    I always have mixed feelings about Bel Ami. On the one hand they have the most striking collection of young men: flawless bodies, unreal cocks, cumshots like whoa and at one time I was determined to marry Sebastien Bonnet. But on the other hand, a little of their action goes a long way. I hate the exaggerated moaning or the boyish “antics” that set up some of their scenes. I can’t quite put my finger on it; they make good movies but overall I think I prefer the men of a site like, say, MenatPlay if I really need to get off. Bel Ami is like the appetizer when I’m looking for some films to enjoy.

  • andrew

    What an awesome collection of male beauty. My favorites are Sascha Chaykin, Marc Ruffalo, Manuel Rios, Rhys Jagger, Sebastian Bonnet and Adam Archuleta. Can’t wait to see the next group. My favorite for #1 is the Magyar god Kris Evans.

  • John

    I used to be obsessed with Bel Ami but became disillusioned in an interview with Manuel Rios, who escorts now, that he doesn’t do some of the activities he does on screen because he didn’t enjoy them in his personal life. I won’t say more on that. Certainly they have the most attractive cast of models of any company. Some are among the most beautiful young men on the planet. In their defense, I will say they are not all about the twinks as some say. Kris Evans, Luke, Manuel, Sascha and Florian have all performed into their upper twenties. I also say that Bel Ami appears to treat their models very well apparently and they are among the best paid in the business Georges Duroy says the main models make several times the average income for their country.. Most of their big stars drive very expensive European cars like Audi and BMW, so they must be doing well. Also a high number stay working with the company after they end their modeling career. All speaks volumes. All of their models are bisexual and have girlfriends and appears to be part of their culture to be bi and accepted.

    • lordgabux

      Yep, the problem with the word “twink” is that its original meaning has been confused to mean “any young person”
      Originally you had to be young looking and skinny to be a twink, now you see that word everywhere and no skinnies around hahahahha.

    • Erik

      Interesting posting. Where did you see the interview with Manuel?

      • John

        Daddysreviews.com in the Escort Forum. Actually it was a reply he gave to a member of the forum who asked him a question but you should find it under his name or Bel Ami

        • Erik

          Thanks for replying. Didn´t find him on Daddysreviews. So I suppose he escorts under another name than his Belami-name.

        • John

          Not reviewed with the reviews. You must search the escort FORUMS. This has been a while back that I read this post about someone corresponding to him.

  • WhimsyCotton

    It’s a crime against porn not to have the perfect and extremely impish Adam Archuleta as well as Ariel Vanean in the top 20. How could you Zach? You could still fit Mick, Ion, Lukas, Johan, Kris, Jim, Jack, Kevin, and whatever other 10 performers you had in mind while keeping Adam and Ariel in. I am disappointed. I’ll still tune in to see who you place at number 2 though.

  • Fyrestone

    Good heavens! How can a CUT AMERICAN even make the shortlist? He’s exactly everything Bel Ami isn’t. If Mick Lovell is no.1 then the whole list is a sham.

    • Erik

      Don´t agree! Mick is in my opinion a very big star.

  • moondoggy

    Love this. Hard to react until I see the whole list.

    I know the twins are somewhat flawed. But there is something really fucked up (in a good way) about a pair of brothers who are built like ballet dancers and who will fuck and cum in each other whether we want to watch or not. They’re probably trading (identical!!) DNA right now.

  • Jason

    Sebastian Bonnet (as well as Ariel, Dano and Danny) THAT low on the list? You’re kidding, right?
    #1 better not be bloody Lukas R or Kris. Performers like Sebastian, Dano and Danny MADE that studio in its earlier days and without them there would be no Mick Lovell or any of the flash-in-the-pan models that are there today.Sebastian is the epitome of the studio (from performer to hot as hell trainer to director) and needed to be top 3.

  • DaveAtom

    I just know that the best BA guy is JULIAN FUCKING ARMANIS!!!!! The hottest man that ever lived on this Earth.

  • Sebastian is one of my all time favourite.

  • Sebastian S

    Where’s 20-1?

  • Spongey

    Ah hell to the No! Where’s Ion Davidov, the sexiest Romanian evah! He deserves to be on this list!!

  • fran

    Ariel Vanean has to be in the top 10

  • e jerry powell

    Wait, aren’t the Peters twins at least partially incest porn at Bel Ami?
