The winners voted 2017’s Best Gay Porn Stars are: Ashton Summers and Blake Mitchell!

All 11 nominees for Str8UpGayPorn’s Best Gay Porn Star award—Ashton, Austin Wilde, Blake, Cliff Jensen, Cooper Dang, Jack Hunter, Jason Vario, Joey Mills, Sean Cody’s Randy, Sean Ford, Wesley Woods—represent the very best of the industry. They also represent who the fans here love the best, and who viewers enjoy watching the most. Since they were the top two vote-getters, winners Blake and Ashton each carry the title of Best Gay Porn Star for the entire next year, and Str8UpGayPorn is honored to celebrate two of the greatest performers not just of 2017 or 2018, but of all time.

24555hx121_scene2_010hx118_scene27_006Given that both Blake Mitchell and Ashton Summers are Helix exclusives, their wins are another high point for what has already been a hugely successful and award-winning year for that studio. And, the amount of total votes that Ashton and Blake received (nearly 10,000 combined) is a testament to the power of their passionately devoted and fervently loyal fans.

hx121_scene2_018Congratulations again to Best Gay Porn Star Ashton Summers, whose stunning good looks and performance skills will no doubt continue throughout 2018. Ashton appeared in CockyBoys scenes earlier this year before becoming a Helix exclusive, and 2017 was quite obviously his best year yet.

0v8a1287 DNL9TNrUEAAMjwm DPpku-zW4AEOPsX hx120_scene99_039DMhKcJwVwAA6wFEAnd, congratulations to Best Gay Porn Star Blake Mitchell, whose brains, beauty, and body have helped to transform the appeal and reach of Helix Studios over the last three years. Here’s to the next three years and beyond, and everything Blake Mitchell has in store for us!

    i mean, I know going into this with this being the site it is that these two were likely to win, even if they are the exact opposite of my type. oh well, congrats.

  • CamCam

    Not surprising at all. I didn’t vote for them but the way this website promoted them since i joined earlier this year, it’s no surprise that they won. With that said, they make porn that i enjoy and do things sexually that i love so I’m not pissed by the results. Let’s see what 2018 brings.

    • Hari Kalyan

      Right lol a Helix article is posted here every week it seems… Honestly I think the real winner is Cooper Dang for simply getting nominated.

  • Jamie

    I’m proud to say that I said it here yesterday. Thrilled that my top two picks won. The only reason that I’m bragging is that I predicted that Hillary Clinton would win and I’ve been wrong on everything else that followed til now. Couldn’t be happier and more thrilled that Blake and Ashton are the well deserved and inspiring winners. Hey guys —check out my comment from yesterday.
    Happy New Year and thanks Zach for everything.
    Love – Jamie T. ?

  • peter

    Results only remind me that the Peoples’ Choice Awards ain’t the Oscars.

  • The Avatar

    Okay…..so who really won?

  • sxg
    • peter

      But that isn’t what this poll was: it was a fan-based ‘People’s Choice’. The people who voted chose them.

  • B.C.

    Well, Ashton was my favourite. But I mourn for his CB phase. Sex scenes with Jack Hunter and Calvin Banks were his best work by far.
    Blake… I just don’t get it.

  • James South

    Best is a superlative. You can’t have two best.

  • FieldMedic

    I see the bottom queen voting segment ruled the day, lol.

    • James Johnson III

      What do you mean by this comment?

      • peter

        I don’t know either, since Blake Mitchell has only bottomed twice that I am aware of (Sean Ford, Corbin Colby)

    • Jc

      Definitely a manly top hunk of a man shouldve won like randy.

  • badgamer1967

    well I suppose if you like teen boys its a win….as for me I like somthing well past puberty https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1ae51dcf96e69d5bca4fdfa71f8d1f7ba192873483f156cfbf3b00957500d3f.gif

  • WorkBitch
  • Jbj

    I personally had Blake and jack hunter at the top of my list, but Ashton is absolutely gorgeous as well. Congrats, guys! ??

  • Sed

    I like Blake and everything but he didn’t really do much in 2017.

    • peter

      No, he didn’t.

      My nominee was Quinn, who after 70+ good-to-great scenes deserves a Lifetime Achievement Award at the very least. He’s great at making the strait(ish) bros who comprise the core of CF’s models seem not so straight after all, especially when he tops them.

      Of the finalist, my choice was Jack Hunter, who worked for a variety of sites in very different kinds of scenes. Some of them looked great (ColbyKnox) and others — Young Perps(?!) However you can’t accuse him of being type-cast!

  • Devin

    Ashton is boring. He’s kind of like Joey Pele. Hot, but boring. None of his scenes are noteworthy. When Ashton was at Lucas he was still boring. Best Gay Porn Star? What a joke. Oh wait, this must be that new Ethnic thing I heard about. Is it the Ethnic category? ???

    • J. M.

      You’re an idiot and a racist. Congratulations

      • Devin

        Sorry, but not sorry the joke went over your head.

  • Scrapple

    Although I miss the CockyBoys era Ashton who used to bottom regularly, I still like the guy. And I’m happy Blake snatched a co-win before his possible retirement. Or more importantly, before he possibly shoots a bi scene. Because you know if that happens people are coming for his scalp and his retinas.

    • B.C.

      Ashton was magical in CB. Sure it helped that his partners were also my favourites. Not that he isn’t doing a great job with Helix twinks, but he should offer that exquisite behind once in a while…Josh Brady comes first to mind.
      I don’t give a mungo’s ass what will be Blake’s next career move, but isn’t it usually the other way around for homo curious, gay4payers and otherwise sexually inquisitive? They start with straight/bi scenes and then progress to m/m. Definitely a salto mortale if he goes there.

      • Scrapple

        Josh would have so much fun in that ass.

        Blake has always been openly bi, so he doesn’t really fit that porn trajectory.

        • B.C.

          So is Ashton, bisexual I mean. At least that’s what is written on his Helix profile. Though I think on Kinsey scale Blake is dead centre, while Ash is leaning towards 5.

          • peter

            I don’t know how dead-center Blake is. While he says he has an on-again-off-again high-school girlfriend, he shacked-up with Casey Tanner and then fell bigtime for Sean Ford.

  • Hereweare

    Randy, Randy, Randy……….I did what I could.
    I’m now going to single-handedly think about what might have been……..

    • peter

      I think Randy is better than either of the winners, if that’s any consolation. Like Quinn, he definitely merits a Lifetime Achievement award. His failure here may be a reflection of how crappy Sean Cody has become.

      • Jc

        Definitely i cant believe he lost to these two untalented twinks. Randy is a hunk of a man ans his cock alone brings these two winners to shame.

      • Hereweare

        Randy is a MAN, wine-bottle dick & all! The twinks who won are lovely, but Randy works up an honest sweat.

    • Jc

      Definitely randy is hotter and better in bed than both of these twinks. I also need randy to get gang banged soon.

  • Paul J

    Nice to see the spirit of Christmas, peace and goodwill to all men, is thriving amongst these comments. My personal favourite didn’t even make the list, but gratz to the winners! Hey Zach, are we going to get the actual number of votes or at least a rundown of the top 5?

  • emercycrite

    Ashton really is beautiful but I miss his LE days.

  • nodoubtfan

    So what do they win? I mean, besides the title and the general ridicule from the comment section.

  • Philip Broad

    It occurs to me that we’ve not seen much of Blake Mitchell lately. Last scene was in early October. Has he left Helix?

  • ANTSLC

    I honestly don’t understand the appeal of Blake Mitchell. He’s so bland, and those shtick glasses – :/

    • sxg

      Have you seen him without the glasses? Trust me, you want the glasses on him!

    • realitytvIV

      And douchey. He’s so anonying. Always going on and on and on about how into women he is. Like, no one cares, dude.

  • James Johnson III

    I can’t hate Blake getting a nod. No matter what he does, to me, he looks incredibly hot doing it…though I wish someone more prolific this year had won (like Austin Wilde)

  • brock
    • DaveAtom

      And mine too.

      Don’t get me wrong, I think Ashton is pretty hot and Blake well, he’s there, but those guys can’t be compared with the physique and hotness of Mr. Austin Wilde and his overall career (in front and behind cameras). He is an actual star and legend.

      • brock

        Exactly! He is 1) objectively a very attractive person, 2) a very versatile performer, with a great dick, great ass, and fantastic topping and bottoming skills, 3) has starred in and produced a lot of fantastic scenes, and perhaps most importantly 4) seems like he’s genuinely having fun with what he does.

  • meduel

    two twinks????? jejeje oh my god….this is end of the world!

  • Deviancy Behavir
    • Hari Kalyan

      Its really about who voted repeatedly for their faves though, so dont worry. But I personally love Ashton and think he was definitely a strong contender. Blake, on the other hand, was basically nominated off of credit for years past. He scenes this year weren’t all that great IMO so not really worthy.

      • Deviancy Behavir

        It’s cool. This is one of the reasons why I generally don’t watch this mainstream porn and watch more smaller studios or amateur. It’s almost always hotter with more guys that aren’t just twinks.

  • Alex

    Best porn stars?
    Better than Calvin Banks, Colby Keller, Jess, etc etc?
    Weird nominees list and even weirder winners.

    • peter

      Kolby Keldeshian?!?!

      • Alex

        Huh?

  • beefcupcake

    I mean if the top studio is Helix here, you can’t really expect any other result.

  • AJ’s Black Widow
  • Hot Twink

    Well, neither are my picks, but congrats to them anyway. It is nice to see someone with eyewear win. Never would have thought that would happen.

  • S .

    Sounds like someone is on the Helix payroll…

  • Maximus
  • Daddy Sommelier

    I was actually hoping that it’d be Colby Keller. I mean, have you seen anyone fuck over people of color, the disabled, the lbgtq communities and other marginalized peoples to only then fuck over their own career? Honestly, its iconic. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fa658318352af53d288b6bd30ba14b8adaf63536bb4eed4b0198acb1d913631c.gif

    • Mike Julius

      What movie are you watching? Colby is going to be just fine; most gay porn consumers don’t seem to have any respect for themselves let alone people of color.

  • WhimsyCotton

    With the power of endless Twitter and Tumblr fangirls that Helix has behind it, this result is everything but surprising. A porn star without social media backing them is a lost cause in a voting contest. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0ca87d405b9525cb865f3d4c5c83249b3bca27f75df56c15a6b250e843ca0ece.gif

  • badgamer1967

    comment removed for the second time someone’s in a bad mood today, third time lucky so here we go I find these winners a tad too young looking, not my cup of tea….hows that?

  • Blake is hot, but…. wearing glasses doesn’t necessarily mean the guy has brain…

  • Cheshire

    Blake is hot, love the glasses, but Dave from CF is my King of 2017.

  • waynejesse

    Can anyone answer this question for me? Why has Blake Mitchell not been in a scene for months. Has he retired?+

  • Ty Huber

    I like ’em both, but really adore Ashton. I wish more would be made of his dancing ability. Several references here to his CB days, but what about the amazing bareback work he did for Lucas Entertainment? Back then, he truly was a twink. He’s all growed up now.

  • såklart äg

    Who the fxxk is voting for Blake??
    probably only his agent…

  • Hot Twink

    lol … kind of funny that he follows him. Wonder if he ever looks at his postings…

  • Jon

    Did a bunch of tumblr girls spam votes or something? It’s the only explanation I can think of.
