Year In Review: Here Are The 100 Most Searched-For Gay Porn Stars Of 2018

Posted December 29, 2018 by with 27 comments

gayporn2018Who was the most popular gay porn star of 2018? It’s time to find out!

When I checked these stats at the end of 2017, Alex Mecum came in at #1. And when I checked them during the mid-year report back in June, Alex Mecum was still king, coming in at #1 again. Did Alex hold on to the top spot for all of 2018, or did a new gay porn star end his reign? You’ll find out below.

As always, this list is based on internal stats and Google Analytics showing which gay porn star names generated the most page views referred from search engines. The higher a name appears on the list, the more people are searching for him online.

Fun facts: The studio with the most stars on the list is Sean Cody, with a whopping 16 among the top 100, and the legendary Stu ranking the highest. Despite retiring over five years ago, Mick Lovell is still in the top 10. In fact, many retired and deceased stars are on the list, including Kyle Dean, who died earlier this year. As usual, several gay porn stars currently in prison made the list, including Jarec Wentworth and Sebastian Young (whose case is still pending, with a trial scheduled for next year). Social media star turned gay porn star and comedian Chris Crocker is making his first appearance on the list, and he’s made a grand entrance by landing in the top 10. And finally, one of the biggest movers on the list is Boomer Banks, who came in at #73 last year, but has skyrocketed into the top 10 this year.

The number in parentheses next to a performer’s name is where they were one year ago on the 2017 ranking, so you can see whether they’ve moved up or down. (If there’s no number in parentheses, that performer wasn’t on the list in 2017.)

While Blake Mitchell ranked #1 on the mid-year report in 2017, this is the first time he’s hit the top spot on the year-end list. Congratulations to Blake on being the new #1 for all of 2018, and congratulations to all of the top 100!

  • Julio Grandeur

    Lol at the picture used for Arad

    • B.C.

      Sadly or ironically that got him in top 50, but more alarming is Davey Wavey’s foot entering top 10. Troy Accola who received Davey’s ministrations didn’t even make the cut, like so many other beautiful and solid performers.

      • AlohaMar

        The list isn’t about the best, or even who folks want to watch perform—it’s about who generated press, good or bad. And a lot of times that means controversy, gossip, etc. People hear rumors about so and so, and come here to look it up. Davey is likely on the list for his new studio, Boomer shot up because he created his bareback studio BoomBoxxx. The Helix boys generated personal drama as per usual and that was covered extensively on this site. A few are just really popular with people who come to this site because of their work (like Alex Mecum), but this list is mostly not about that. Troy kept his head down and just performed well. No drama, no controversy. No articles about anything other than his work. With the huge number of models out there, it’s hard to make a list like this just doing that.

        • B.C.

          Yeah, I know. It’s mostly controversy and press coverage. Nevertheless, one strange ass list. Angel Rivera (one-half of the Helixgate) lands on the list, while his other (ex)half Ben Masters doesn’t make it.

          • AlohaMar

            Ehhh… the site and its twitter feed has a lot of Helix. I would bet it’s got a lot of Helix fans who frequent the site and use it to search their fav Helix models. It could be those folks used Angel’s name rather than Ben’s name to look up the controversy. And Angel has that extra “interview” with Cameron (and Joey). Plus, Angel & Joey are now some kind of “power couple” I guess. So I’m not surprised at all he made the list while Ben didn’t.

          • Dave Netherton

            Helix gets a lot of press on this site alone. More than any other website. So, not shocked that Blake (for good or bad) is #1. Speaking of which Zach maybe you can tell the fellas at Helix that they missed their regular posting night last night. They post new material on Tuesday & Friday nights. They still drunk or hung over from the holidays??? LOL

          • Sed

            Remember Ben did an extensive interview with a new site about what happened during the scandal but unlike that Angel’s interview he answered real questions and had plenty of receipts. But it didn’t get promoted here.

        • James Johnson III

          I completely agree with your assessment. That’s why I’m so glad that Blake hit #1. He mostly was all about promoting and working, whether it’s his fabulous scene work (‘Mine’ is, in my opinion, one of the hottest scenes Helix has ever done) or promoting the book based on his life journey and being a face for the Bisexual community. I’m so happy he made #1 for the most part with no drama.

  • Burkeman

    We have the homophobic, the biphobic, the straight-for-pay, the gay-for-pay, the arrested, the convicted criminals, the long ago retired, the dead, and the Wishlist and GoFundMe profiteers- while the other half are openly proud either gay or bisexual guys.

    It is, in my opinion, a mostly wonderful and friendly group of guys. It is a great industry.

    All the best for the new year everybody.

  • Al Johnson

    Searches for Arad must have been generated in Iran — the local people are concerned about what the ‘gay’ fugitive is doing in the United States. Now they already know :)

  • McM.

    I’m just happy I was able to scroll through the post and see fine ass Calvin.

    • No_No_No_Yes

      This. I bet he is the most searched gay porn model in history.

      • Eclipse

        Low-key obsessed with his perfect everything all these years later. My favorite pornstar of all time.

  • Joel

    I, maybe, only looked for 5-6 of these people throughout the year.

  • No_No_No_Yes

    I bloody HATE that Davey Wavey even made this list. I totally blame you Zach.

    As for the rest of this list – it isn’t really that big a wonder, most of the SC models in the list are featured in old pop ads on virtually every tube site known to modern man – that goes for Alex Mecum and Blake as well. It’s only natural people will go looking, so I consider the “meaning” of these results more than a little skewed, and certainly no accurate reflection of ACTUAL popularity.

    I had no idea Sebastian was in jail again – he is becoming a pass around bottom the hard way. I wonder when Jarek is getting out – bet his bottoming skills have been put to good use lol.

    • Sed

      I agree. Blake Mitchell being the number 1 most searched for model makes no sense unless you put in in proper context. Goo gobs of promotion not only on this site and Helix but also mainstream sites like Davey Wavey.

    • Jc

      Thank you he aint no porn star.

  • Mike

    I think I am responsible for Darius Ferdynand going from 80 to 24!

  • Hush-ins

    That fact that Carter Dane still makes it to top 20 despite the long absence is something to rejoice.

  • Benton Fraser

    I like that Mr Big and Thick, aka Colby Jansen, is still in the top 100 (despite only using Only Fans) as his primary outlet.

  • Mister Sterious

    Chris Crocker #6? Is it 2007?

  • sxg

    Wait, Cunt Keller didn’t have a ranking last year? Didn’t realize his Trumptardedness knocked him out of last year’s top 100, if anything I thought that would increase his ranking due to it being a scandal along the lines of a porn death or in jail.

    I am pleased his batshit apologist, messy otter Tegan is dropping in rank. Also pleased another notorious Trumptard Sergeant Miles didn’t even rank, unless he was purposely left out of it lol. And glad to see Republican boyfriend beating Ryan Rose is nearly off the list. I’d say goodbye forever, but the cunt will be back.

  • Aldo Alexander

    I thought Alam Wernik was about to be on the list :(

    • Anon

      That’s a shocker. Alam is definitely more popular than (probably) half of the people listed in here.

  • Tyler Bren

    i swear I’m that one person who constantly look up for stu and made him to the list even though he’s already retired. he’s my forever crush uggghh poor me he’s not coming back

  • Jc

    Omggg my randy desrves better. Also damn alec was so close to number one. Dont see the appeal of blake mitchell. And also elian deserves better too.

  • Jc

    Also davey wavey ewwww.
