VOTE: Who Is Your Favorite Gay Porn Star Of 2017?

Posted December 26, 2017 by with 137 comments

vtoe(Previous winners of Str8UpGayPorn’s Best Gay Porn Star: Carter Dane, Diego Sans, Colby Keller, and Connor Kline.)

UPDATE: Unlimited voting is now underway until tomorrow at 11:59 pm EST, November 27th! After that, the poll will be closed and the winners will be announced later this week! Scroll down to cast your votes.

***

It’s that time again! Every year, Str8UpGayPorn unveils its list of 10 gay porn stars worthy of being voted by Str8Up readers as Best Gay Porn Star, and as we revealed last week, things have been changed this year to give readers complete control over all the nominations, and both of the ultimate winners. As previously announced, there will be two Best Gay Porn Star winners this year, so the two performers who receive the most votes in the poll below will both be named Best Gay Porn Star Of 2017!

Readers and fans named their favorite nominees in the comments last week, and I’m now happy to announce all 11 of the nominees who received the most comments. Yes, there are 11 nominees, not 10. Why 11? There was a four-way tie for the last two spots on the list, and rather than eliminate two of them based on the time their nominations were left (which had been the original plan), I’ve decided to just put all of them onto the final list. Obviously, this means that Str8UpGayPorn has declined to place its own favorite nominee on the list (which had also been the original plan), given that we’re now up to 11 nominees. Long story short, it’s better to just defer to all of you, since you’re the ones who’ll ultimately be voting in the poll and deciding the two winners.

And so, without further ado, here in alphabetical order are the 11 nominees for Best Gay Porn Star Of 2017. Click any name to see some of their work as covered here on Str8UpGayPorn.

Congratulations to Ashton, Austin, Blake, Cliff, Cooper, Jack, Jason, Joey, Randy, Sean, and Wesley!

Voting in the below poll will run until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, December 27th, 2017, and the Best Gay Porn Star winners will then be revealed here on December 29th. Whichever two receive the most votes, these 11 nominees have all done great work in 2017, and they are no doubt grateful for receiving so much love from their fans.

gggggYou may cast one vote per day in the below poll, so don’t forget to come back every 24 hours to vote for your favorite again. AND: On December 27th, this poll will be opened up so that you can vote AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT on that final day of voting. Note that this polling software requires a “cooling off” period once you’ve cast more than 25 votes per hour, and you’ll need to wait approximately one hour before you can resume voting again.

VOTE:


  • Sean Ford got my vote. Wish he would have stayed at Helix though. I miss him in bareback scenes.

    • peter

      His stuff at CB has been uniformly disappointing, especially that Madrid Bruce LaBruce hot mess!

      • GayhawkAZ

        He’s a trainwreck. Here’s hoping he goes the way of Levi Michaels and becomes obscure.

  • Daddy Sommelier

    I voted for Wesley solely because he dragged Colby Keller for filth this year. Social justice dick is my favorite kind of dick

  • James Johnson III

    Neither of the boys that I originally nominated are on this list. However, three of my absolute favorites are on this list so, as long as I’m able to vote for them, I’ll be happy

  • CamCam

    I sure wish Pheonix Fellington was in this list because he deserves it.

    With that said, i see a few people nominated that i like so I’m still happy but Pheonix would’ve fit wonderfully with this list.

  • Jose

    Cliff Jensen? Seriously? He’s old news. If he’s in the list, then so does Brent Corrigan.

    • Nate

      Totally agree

  • Loveless
    • peter

      With the favorite scene being Parks and Mills “We Stole Go Karts!” Joey has a big hickey! I love when Cameron says, as they’re in the booze section “this is a bad aisle for us!”

  • sxg

    Damn, Kurtis Wolfe didn’t make the cut!

    At least Randy, Jason Vario and Austin Wilde made the cut so I can throw my votes to them. The rest I really don’t give a shit about.

  • Scrapple

    So many viable options. And a bit of diversity too. Well done. And good on Cliff. From convict to award worthy nominee in such a short period of time. Who says crime doesn’t pay?

  • Alex

    Meh….

  • Pascal Stretch

    Balke Mitchell, only because Corbin Colby and Michael DelRay are not in this list…

    • Stacy

      Michael DelRay……yummm……

    • King

      Michael DelRay, totally. He is like the boy in high school that we all secretly wanted.

  • Izzy

    She’s not my favorite but Logan Cross did have an exceptional year taking some exceptional dicks.

    Austin Wilde’s site has completely changed my porn watching habits. we just don’t see enough of him.

    Is BM still doing porn?

  • ViktorTausk

    Seriously?

  • seanbaxter

    Yummy, hella sexy Ashton Summers all the way.

  • nick

    I voted for Jason Vario’s smile and ass in that right hand picture.

  • beefcupcake

    Since Wesley seems to be the most dedicated porn star out of the bunch, I have voted for him.

  • aquisr

    Really? Austin WIlde?? The guy that told that girl to take a cyanid pill and then she killed herself……really?
    And W. Woods? I won’t vote for him based on all the political bullshit he spews everywhere.

  • Julian

    Ashton!! <33

  • RockBottom

    I ❤ Jason..he’s beautiful!

  • Votan

    Austin all the way

  • Eclipse

    Ashton Summers is one of the most flawless and gorgeous human beings I have ever seen. He’s also really nice, charming, and has an awesome personality in every way. My vote is for him because he honestly deserves this.

    • Furqan

      Same here

    • WhimsyCotton

      Ashton would be a good candidate for a BelAmi x Helix crossover. Tanned, dark-haired, big dick, big ass, toned. It’s all there. Have Peter Annaud and Joel Birkin toss him around. Then, he can have a flip-flop scene with Dylan Maguire. Finally, he can top Justin Saradon and/or Nino Valens. FIN.

  • B.C.

    Can I vote one day for Ashton and other for Mr Hunter? I wish Calvin Banks was in the mix, he did have sizzling ? scenes with both men. Perhaps a threesome in the future…make it happen CockyBoys!

  • Eiger

    My favorite is Randy, the super stud. He has the perfect cock and he is versatile, too. Go, Randy!!!

    • peter

      After over four years and 48 action scenes, I may be getting just a touch burned-out on Randy.

      I’m happy that Jayden, who’s been around even longer but whose (fewer) scenes have been more evenly distributed, is finally getting the recognition he deserves.

      • Devin Davidson

        If you’re getting a touch burned out on any porn star then you probably should choose another activity besides. I mean you know how many years and number of scenes? Seems on the verge of obsession or stalking. I think Randy comes across as genuine BUT this is porn and acting is what they should be doing regardless. The performers who do what is required thus getting the audience to notice them generates more business. Most guys in porn also escort and that requires you to be the type/behavior of the one paying.

        • peter

          Hmmm . . . Stalking? Let’s see. I went to this site, seancody, looked up the model ‘Randy’, saw the date of his first performance, counted the number of pages containing his action scenes (4), multiplied that by 12 and . . . viola! Took me less than a minute!

          If you don’t know how to do that, you’re really kind of slow . . .

          The old Sean Cody used to cap-out even their best models (Harley, Kurt, Jamie, Calvin, Jarek) at 20-25 scenes. I suspect they did this so they wouldn’t get stale (or seem like Corbin Fisher). Sean Cody customers seemed to prefer fresh-faces to familiarity. MindGeek seems to have dropped that policy.

        • von schlomo

          Ask your friends or the public at large and see how many of them who watch porn also visit porn blogs AND take the time to post comments. Everyone here is arguably obsessed with porn, especially the ones who have posted dozens or hundreds of comments for years. And stalking? Let me help you out, merely watching every porn scene a given performer is in and looking online for other commercially available pictures can not be stalking. Hell, since all these performers also maintain a huge social media presence to further their porn careers, it’s hard to even say people who follow all that crap are stalking. Stalking would be learning the performers real name, looking for stuff online using that name, visiting them in person and following them around in public, at the very least.

          • peter

            Thanks. I definitely agree that it’s important to maintain a China Wall between the porn model and the real person. It bothers the hell out of me when people post personal stuff about these guys. Zach’s really good about protecting models’ privacy. Other boards, not so much.

  • Jc

    Randy randy randy. I mean look at that hunk of a man.

  • Xzamilloh

    Austin Wilde…because he’s the only one who owns a viable studio and performs like he’s a regular cock-hungry model

  • ANTSLC

    Randy for sure. He’s going to be my husband afterall….

  • WorkBitch

    What an accurate reflection of the state of gay porn in 2017.

  • Sean Ford

  • C A

    I went with Austin because he Dick Wispered Dante aka Ryder and Clark aka Sebastian from CF. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/771348b847120d55d53a208cfd0eaa1356b02af18bf1b1968ce2e85a805270d1.gif

  • Phresh

    I voted Austin Wilde. He’s been producing the best porn content, from a GAY man POV. The best versatility, in terms of race and sex preference. He actually hires GAY models, instead of a bunch of G4P models. Not to mention GISP is the best Gay porn Website of the yr.

    Plus, I love that he speaks his mind, and also very intelligent.

    Doesn’t hurt that he’s very attractive, nice dick and great ass as well.

    • tst tst

      Didn’t he hire “Miss G4P 2017” Clark Parker aka Sebastian?

      • peter

        Who’s she?

      • Ceecee

        For some reason I’m willing to give Clark Parker a pass just because of that smile.
        He seems to actually have fun with his work, so I put my G4P hate on pause.

        • tst tst

          He’s a depressed homophobic boring g4p. He deserves no symphaty.

          • ATungNUBoy

            For the record mental illness is not a joke. Point me towards anything that shows Clark Parker is homophobic.

          • tst tst

            Threatening gay people and saying he will smash “queen faces” on asphalt is not a joke either

          • ATungNUBoy

            Source?

          • tst tst

            He deleted his comments on MenOfPorn

          • ATungNUBoy

            I’m guessing no one bothered to grab a screen cap of said comments.

          • tst tst

            I didn’t but can ask guys on Waybig, maybe they have some

          • ATungNUBoy

            Screen caps are a good thing to have to show when someone deletes their comments. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/81b5f3458b6e2b157800735c46b7ab5015d9b009f7812c03d89d1bb6cf410827.png

          • squash4dave

            I read an interview right here where he said that he has had sex with other guys off set. So, that doesn’t sound too homophobic to me. He could be lying, but without any evidence showing that he has actually made anti-gay remarks, I have to accept him at his word. Besides, he could be in that process of coming out. Before I fully came out, I was repulsed by effeminate gay men. When you’re struggling with your identity, it’s not unusual to displace anger toward those who most remind you of who or what you’re struggling against.

  • Nate

    Pretty boring selection :(

  • DumDumBonerMaker

    Let’s be honest.
    Nobody here would recognize Blake Mitchell without his glasses.
    Sure, he’s a personable performer but without the glasses would he be so-noticed in that twaggle of twinks at Helix?
    And good for him, by the way, – he gets noticed by using “one simple trick” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a6cd2a2292a899de7583e989682236a51cfe18553f9db74cb7be90cb9398f606.jpg

  • gaysiantwink

    How did the list narrow down to these…

  • VncntDL

    The fact that Colby Keller won this award a few years ago throws a dubious light on the whole proceedings. Don’t care if this was before the Trump BS. His porn work was never good enough for him to be named Favorite Gay Porn Star. Sorry. No.

  • DaveAtom

    Bunch of hot huys, but come on, there is no contest when Austin Wilde is in it. He should be in contention for Best Gay Porn Star of the decade.

  • Parker Lewis
  • Hari Kalyan

    Like him or hate him, Cliff definitely had the comeback of the year. But i think Ashton is the most deserving, Shout out to Cooper. I didn’t know he had such a strong fanbase.

    • Scrapple

      Seeing the Cooper love made me smile. I’m hoping Men has enough sense to pair him with Jordan Levine again. Their Randy Blue scene still gets mentions. And rightfully so.

      • sxg

        Fuck no. That scene was boring as hell. Jordan is an amazing top, but even he couldn’t fuck some life into Cooper.

        • Scrapple

          Whatever. The BTS with them kissing all over each other proves otherwise. Staged or not, they sold that shit.

  • AJ’s Black Widow

    Wesley, his scenes are the best of the bunch imo.

  • Louis Leonardo

    I can’t believe Teddy Torres is not here…

  • Daniel Ulibarri

    Wesley. No-brainer. So fine, so passionate… The hole of his generation!!

  • Al

    I’m a bit disappointed that Teddy Torres didn’t make the cut. As much as I have it weak for Randy, my vote goes to Austin Wilde. Randy had better years in the past.

    • c_find

      I agree but he’s too Bearish/cubbish for this blog

  • WhimsyCotton

    As I am a spiteful bitch, I shan’t be voting. No one worked a dick harder than Lane this year or last year. Gay or G4P. NO ONE! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/75f8c5f54c16f8aebe5a0886e6281f386eaa2bcdc0455b1b8c7ab286cb175370.gif

    • Hereweare

      Lane is G4P?? Oh……never mind this contest. On to the Oscars for that boy!

  • jack_H

    Ashton Summers of course

  • The Foxy Mistress ?

    I voted for Ashton Summers as his work with Helix this year has been outstanding ❤️?❤️

  • Jaycee Cash

    Voted for Blake. I hope he makes a comeback soon!

  • Joel

    Where’s the vote for “None,” because that’s where my vote is going!

  • Maximus

    Had to vote for my good Judy, Ms. Austin.

  • J a w s
    • GayhawkAZ

      You’re heavily biased. I’ve seen your Twitter, it’s a fucking shrine to Blake. 😉

  • Eric Jordan

    I voted for Ashton he is such a dream

  • Al

    Randy and Austin Wilde just need to do a scene together to cap off 2017. I would love to see that scene.

  • Tim

    I love several of these and don’t see the attraction of several more. very happy to see Jack and Wesley made it. Randy is always a good choice too.

  • Edward

    RANDY

  • Daniel Ulibarri

    Wesley by a mile and a half. He’s passionate, innovative, transformative and doesn’t do status-quo. Amazing performer, funny, smart, hot as fuck and blowing up the industry like the Michael Bay of porn! ???

  • Ricky

    Ashton, Blake or Jack for me. I think Blake should get it just for being on Anthony Scaramucci’s radar.

  • Curious

    joey mills for sure

  • BKNewEyes

    Zaddy Ashton all day everyday

  • PaulieP

    Can i write in Bo Sinn for Bromo? Please!

  • Michael Regan

    to many scrawny little fuckers, this yearly vote needs some beef

  • awkward34

    Hopefully Josh Brady will be nominated next year.

  • KP

    I love Austin WIlde but the static camera angles and lack of close ups really make his stuff look amateurish. I can tell he’s having a good time I wish I was too

  • c_find

    Condolences to Blake Mitchell for his loss, maybe winning might cheer him up ;-(

    • peter

      His series of very personal series of tweets really left a bad taste in my mouth. He comes from a cohort that doesn’t seem to get that some things are best left private. Quite honestly I feel like he was seizing upon the opportunity presented by misfortune to advertise he ‘bisexual’ creds.

      • c_find

        Honestly I don’t follow him on Twiter and I don’t really find him attractive but having a miscarriage is a really tough thing to go though, so that is why I offer my condolences.

  • David Delray

    Clif Jensen that cock, his smirk.. the body .. he fucks like crazy lol 😛 Love that man!!

  • jersey

    i would have chosen sean ford but since he left helix for cockyboys we hardly see him anymore and even the fe scenes he did there weren’t that hot i think his talent
    is being wasted right now

  • Robert Michael Todd

    none of them.

  • BF8

    Sean Ford has basically disappeared since leaving Helix… what a shame

  • Sattawut Wongwiangjunt

    Blake Mitchell always turns me on. His nerdy and hunky looks gorgeous. I’ll hug and kiss him if I meet him in person. Super hot, Blake. I’ll always support you.

  • Jc

    Randy who else lol.

  • Judge Judy

    Wesley woods screams genital warts. His hole just looks stank. Vile queen.

  • peter

    My nominee, Quinn, didn’t make the cut :( Just think of all those ‘straight studs’, starting with Kent, who aren’t quite so straight anymore.

    Of the remaining nominees, I voted for Jack both because of his scene with Mickey (who should also be up there) and because of his incredible range.

  • peter

    Laurel and Hardy, Abbot and Costello, Hope and Crosby, Mills and Clark!

  • badgamer1967

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e750c14d0d6b84932cee0d4da0da09a6adcd4330a4fbaa9e3f88188e38ee16b5.gif
    what a crap group, but Wesley Woods because of Trumptard Colby Keller

  • Jc

    Randy :).

  • Shayden

    Am I the only one who thinks that Joey Mills is the cutest, hottest, sexiest porn star in the game right now? If so, I’m totaaly cool with that.

    • Rob36

      Maybe not the only one, but one of a small number for sure.

  • Ed Woody

    Having once touched a boob and then run away giggling does not make one ‘straight’.

  • Hot Twink

    I voted Wesley Woods. Austin a close second for me, wish I could vote for both…

  • robertdude

    I voted for Jason Vario because i think his dick is too big for me to take which means after he pounded me i’d die happy…

  • Bill Nelson

    Ashton summers!!

  • Jbj

    Wow – had no idea lane is straight. He seems like such an eager bottom that loves cock. Oh well, very convincing. :)

  • Michael Regan

    Their all pretty boring tbh, Austin Wilde probably the only one I find hot enough, but that’s just on looks, not on performance

  • Hereweare

    Sad to not see Brent Corrigan make it. His scenes are still mega-hot after all these years.

  • HornyBrightonGuy 18+

    Blake Mitchell because he is as hot as fuck and I loved seeing him bottom this year

  • magenta5

    Who plugs their Amazon wishlist the least?

    • ilovebakedgoods

      Sean Ford never plugs his but I don’t pay attention to anyone else’s.

    • BKNewEyes

      Ashton doesn’t even have an amazon wishlist lol

  • Jamie

    Blake Mitchell FORFUCKINGEVER!!! Ashton Summers is a very very close second but Blake does it for me. It’s the way he rolls more than anything else.

  • john

    Went to vote for Cliff Jensen and accidentally click on Cooper by mistake.

    Dang.

  • R.A.M.J

    Cliff all the way

  • Anderson Neo

    It was hard to choose one of the Helix boys, but Ashton is handsome and hot, a mix of Joey and Sean.

  • Bastian

    I always restrict my votes to gay dudes only, so I crossed out Blake, Cliff, Jack & Randy right away, and the choice was still difficult. It’s great that there are so many gays in the list to choose from.

  • john

    Cliff Jensen rules!

  • Bastian

    I always restrict my votes to gay dudes only, so I crossed out Blake, Cliff, Jack & Randy right away, and the choice was still difficult. It’s great that there are so many gays in the list to choose from. Anyway, I chose Austin, although I hate him for using g4payer on his site, I can’t resist his dick! It’s like fucking Kaa from The Jungle Book that hypnotizes you. https://media.giphy.com/media/8Xr3wfissLDna/giphy.gif

  • Jax

    Well I’ve done it. I’ve voted for Cooper Dang every hour of today. Now I can finally sleep lmao

  • Shane Blumenthal

    My vote goes to Joey Mills. cute twink.
