Mid-Year Report: Here Are The Top 50 Most-Searched For Gay Porn Stars Of 2018 So Far

Posted June 21, 2018 by with 56 comments

gr1qAs we do every June, it’s time to check in on the most-searched gay porn stars, with Str8UpGayPorn’s biannual list of the Top 50 Most-Searched Gay Porn Stars for the first half of 2018. This list is based on internal stats and Google analytics showing which gay porn star names generated the most page views on Str8UpGayPorn, as referred by search engines.

In terms of how today’s mid-year ranking compares to the year-end top 100 ranking released in December of 2017, here are a few notes: Leo Giamani, Sean Cody’s Stu, Corbin Fisher’s Connor, Kris Evans, and Mick Lovell all managed to stay in the top 10, despite retiring from gay porn several years ago. Also, there are two new names in the top 10: Ashton Summers and Angel Rivera. Ashton makes a giant leap on the list, skyrocketing from #94 all the way to #5. And Angel (who’s never ranked anywhere on the list before) only started doing gay porn in January, so in addition to this being his first appearance on the list, he also sets a record as the performer with the highest-ranking debut in the history of these lists.

At the end of 2017, Alex Mecum ranked #1 on this list (click here to view 2017’s top 100 gay porn stars). Was Alex able to hold onto the crown, or did another gay porn star take the top spot on this mid-year report? Find out below.

Here are the Top 50 Most-Searched Gay Porn Stars for the first half of 2018. (Click any linked name to learn more about that star or watch his movies.)

Congratulations to Alex Mecum, who retains his spot at the top of the list!

  • pje821

    Alex deserves to be No. 1. He’s handsome, has an incredible body, a sexy, hairy chest, a big dick, is a big shooter and has no tattoos — so in my book he’s perfect. What’s not to love?

    • nick

      He is totally dreamy

    • Xzamilloh

      And he’s GAY!!! Actually gay. Imagine that being a plus for a gay porn star in this day and age.

      • pje821

        Excellent point.

      • smart

        But he works for MEN which is a straight worshiping site.

  • Xzamilloh

    Literally only clicked on this because I saw Austin Wilde sitting there insulting me by not having his penis in my mouth.

    • NTNT

      AMEN!!!!

  • Link Nla

    luuuuuuuuuuuuuv Angel Rivera omg he’s so bae!

  • Alena Conte

    Ashton… my god that man is gorgeous.

  • peter

    Stu’s staying power is remarkable! Connor, too.

    Kyle Dean?!?!

    • Al

      That’s what I was thinking. Stu hasn’t done SC since 2014.

      • peter

        I think Kyle Dean is even more remarkable since he wasn’t around all that long and seems to have disappeared.

        • Al

          I had to go back and check the list. I don’t event remember who Kyle Dean was. So yeah pretty impressive.

          • peter

            It wasn’t that I didn’t remember him but rather that I was shocked to see him. More notorious for his off-screen antics than memorable for his shitty performances. Go away!

          • pje821

            I think he worked for GayHoopla and Corbin Fisher.

  • peter

    Personal favorites: Jack, Brooks,Tyler, Beau, Calvin, Jess, Noel, Joey, Sean Zevran, Sean Ford, Phoenix, Austin, Stu, Blake, Alex.

    My favorite remains Calvin, which isn’t likely to ever change. Brooks is a close second.

  • peter

    What would be interesting to know is which porn model had the most popular search under his real name.

  • Norig

    Surprised no Hoyt Kogan :(

    • Rob36

      he’s so handsome

  • B.C.

    Jack Hunter only at No 50 while Davey Wavey who doesn’t actually do porn/fuck is No 25?! Where are CF’s young guns and total hotties Elian and Max? Lots of G4payers (as usual) which is, at least to me, uncomprehending and insulting. Some of my other favourites ( Angel, Ashton, Carter Dane and Calvin) have decent rankings. Overall, another disappointing list.

    • peter

      Jack’s pretty fucking amazing. Not just looks and dick but he comes across as such an awesome guy!

    • Tim

      I have no problem with G4P performers, as long as they aren’t, well, Sgt. Miles about it. I agree that Jack is too good to be this low on a list like this. He turns out a steady stream of very good work from a variety of studios from cheap to niche to movie-quality. My only beef is directors don’t have him top as often as I’d like. He is 50/50 vers by all accounts but he bottoms so much more often.

      I’m surprised by Carter’s high ranking, not that he isn’t great, but he hasn’t done that much work and took all of 2017 off. Part of it has to be quality, part of it has to be that he’s working for Cockyboys and they are well loved, and part of it is probably that he’s dating Alex.

      • smart

        G4P is trash.

  • Drew Espinosa

    He could still be in the top 100.

    • Kevin Wright

      compared to other years he would have been there but then people are tired of Trump and the people who put him where he is.

  • Cake

    Come on. How popular do you think the kid would be if he didn’t have Ben boosting his popularity from the beginning with their very public relationship and dramatic ending? Of fucking course people searched him. And will someone please introduce him to Clear Eyes? I had no idea people were into the red-eyed-dopey stoner look that much. Not saying he’s not a cutie but….well, he’s no Blake Mitchell. But who is, amirite?!

    Can I just say that I cannot believe Josh Brady is not on that list. That kid’s cock is a gahdamn beauty. And he takes it like a fucking dream. Holy fuck….. a scene with him and Blake?? *SWOON* Yassssssss please!!!

  • Cake

    And ummmm people only searched Davey Wavey to get a glimpse of Blake having a full body orgasm. Ok? Ok. I’m saying cuz I totally did that. Regrets. *sigh* I am judging myself so hard right now.

  • Hari Kalyan

    do the results just mean there are a lot of posts about these models on this blog? e.g. Angel Rivera’s twitter drama coverage, he’s a cute and all but minus the drama i doubt he’s be on this list at all

    • Hush-ins

      Twitter drama and this site’s constant coverage both of it and his scenes definitely help. While the way he handles the whole thing make him look nasty to me personality-wise, I have to admit he’s still cute albeit a tad boring performer.
      Davey Wavey is the weirdest one. He doesn’t do hardcore scenes but is still on the list. I bet it’s his Youtube Channel.

    • McM.

      Yes. Name and relevance repetition across multiple articles help with search results in outside engines.

  • John

    I can’t believe Jack Hunter is last of the list and Mason Wyler, who hasn’t done porn in at least 6 years is in the middle of the pack!!!!! Jack is so gorgeous, such a great performer , has one of the biggest dicks in porn, and so versatile. Is it because he is gay and not gay4pay? Mason was gay . I just don’t get it. Jack does real well in award shows.

  • Hush-ins

    Carter Dane’s popularity drops massively. I’m surprised and not surprised at the same time.

  • C3xxx

    Bryan Silva?? That thing still walks the earth? Jesus

    • Rob36

      he loves the tatatatatatatassss

  • BoomPow

    So the guy that recently announced his retirement & claimed he was the last real porn star didn’t even make the list. HaaaHaaaaHaaa! Haaaaa!

  • SaintMike

    Davey Wavey?

  • Tim

    i hope next time you do the list that Cliff Jensen drops off the list. he has been so one-note for so long, and more power to him, but I’d have thought people would lose interest in a guy who only plays the jerky, semihard, totaltop.

  • Edward

    No one from Active Duty? Quentin Gainz? Ryan Jordan? Mathias? Princeton Price? Ivan???

  • CamCam

    Alex Mecum deserves this title. He’s the man and i hope he stays #1 at the end of the year.

  • sxg

    Equally glad that Ryan Rose isn’t either. He loves to call himself the face of Falcon Studios and the only reason people know who they are but judging by this list no one even knows who the fuck she is.

    • GayhawkAZ

      Her star keeps falling. 🍵

      • pje821

        Ryan supposedly just retired, but Colby is still working. In my book he should be in the Top 10.

        • GayhawkAZ

          When I was in Tucson one evening, I was logged into Adam4Adam and there was a profile on there that allegedly was Colby. All these pictures, and a screen name of “Colby Cellar.” Anybody know where he’s actually staying these days? I know he filmed a segment for Colby Does America down in Tucson, but he couldn’t actually be there…could he?

  • Marcus Collack

    Leo Giamani is #7? They have a fave and are sticking to it, even if he hasn’t made porn in years…or has he?

  • Marcus Collack

    Leo Giamani is #7, and Stu is #4? I guess people have their faves and are sticking to em, even if they haven’t made porn in years…or have they? No wonders sales are down, do the 90’s babies of Gay porn exist? Will no other gay porn compare for them? Will the gay porn industry start doing remakes? Have they already? Would I practically sprain my fingers to get access to the nearest internet enabled device if Calvin ever Returned…

  • Carrel

    Kyle Dean: demented but amusing

  • Miss Tea

    Who the fuck even is bryan silva lol

    • Donald Horn

      He was on Tosh a few years ago and did a scene with Hunter Page at Next Door.

    • Hereweare

      Don’t google. Enjoy your life of not knowing.

  • perigrine

    I love that Alex Mecum is finally getting the attention I think he deserved all the way back to his first CB scene, I wish the Awards circuit would be kinder to him. I also find him to be one of the most charming, talented, and intelligent actors out there; I believe that sooner or later a porn actor will make it to mainstream media (no shade to BC/SPL) and I hope it is him. Also agreed that Jack Hunter should be higher on the list.

    I wonder if SUGP monitored which articles garnered the most clicks in this analysis. I almost never seach for many of the names listed through a search engine, but often click in SUGP articles and embeded clips.

  • Hereweare

    Sad to see Brent Corrigan at 45. To me, he keeps getting sexier with age.

  • peter

    One astonishing omission is Pierce Paris (?!)

    • Zachary Sire

      Not an “omission,” but yes, definitely a surprise. (He’s in the top 100, just not top 50.) Sometimes the way the search engines work and how they interact/crawl the posts here can be weird.

      • peter

        I’ve heard Pierce’ bareback flip with Alex is really great!

  • NickDC

    I’m STUNNED that Brent Corrigan is #45 — Is this the lowest he has ever been or has he ever not made the top 50?

  • GayhawkAZ

    How the fuck is human waste-in-a-meatsuit Bryan Silva #21?!?!?!
