The “rumors” floating around about abominably ratchet gay porn studio DallasReeves.com aren’t really just rumors anymore, as several gay porn stars have now confirmed and spoken out publicly about the studio’s horrific business practices. In the past year alone, Rare Cargo’s Dallas Reeves and studio co-owner Baileey have been accused of pairing untested models in surprise bareback shoots, filmed a model who was under contract at another studio, misrepresented condom-only porn stars as bareback porn stars, allegedly engaged in tax fraud, and have even been called “shady” by Vadim Black. And these are just the things that people have been willing to talk about publicly.

Dallas Reeves helps a model do cocaine on a south Florida gay pride float in 2012

But out of all the complaints against this shitshow of a studio in south Florida, the most common one has to do with performers and employees not being paid. One model has revealed to Str8UpGayPorn that he was forced to film “extra” scenes before he could receive a paycheck for his first scene. Even worse, Dallas Reeves and Baileey refused to buy the performer his plane ticket home until he filmed those extra scenes. Today, Str8UpGayPorn can share the story of yet another performer who’s owed thousands of dollars for work performed at DallasReeves.com. He’s asked not to be identified, but I have confirmed his past employment with DallasReeves.com.

Here’s the model in his own words:

So as you may be aware, I was working for Dallas and Baileey for about five months as a model and production assistant. I can confirm a lot of the rumors that you may or may not have heard about them. The one I am primarily looking to address is the not paying their models part. Occasionally, waiting a few days to pay for a scene could be acceptable, but I can confirm that I was not paid for seven scenes, website design work, and office/production work. After parting ways with Dallas Reeves and Baileey, I sent them an invoice for almost $4,000. I would be lying to you if I said that I expect to ever see those funds.

The model went on to tell me that most of his work was performed in September, meaning he’s now been owed the $4,000 for nearly five months.

Inexplicably, DallasReeves.com was given two trophies last week at the Cybersocket Awards (one for Best Affiliate Program and one for Best New Company—both were determined by Cybersocket and not fan votes), and Cybersocket should be embarrassed for awarding a company that’s so obviously corrupt and so universally hated. Also, blogs like QueerMeNow should be similarly ashamed and embarrassed for continuing to promote a studio that treats its performers this way. But I guess as long as DallasReeves.com keeps paying affiliate commissions instead of performer wages, who cares?

How much time do Dallas Reeves and Baileey have left? When will the Florida health department come knocking on their door? Do Dallas Reeves and Baileey owe you money? Send me an email. As always, anonymity guaranteed.

    Dallas Reeves better watch his back ……… not a smart idea to make too many enemies ………

  • NG212

    This is some nasty shit.

    And the worst part — their porn sucks.

    Out of all the businesses and accounts that I would love to hack into, I think the #1 on my list would have to be Zachary Sire’s email accounts, text messages and phone conversations. The stories he has bottled up and evidence must be amazing!!! 😉

    I feel sorry for the guys who aren’t getting paid for the work they do and I totally understand why they wish to remain anonymous… but the sad reality is that until someone steps forward and starts making some waves publicly this kind of crappy behaviour will likely continue. And without a face, a voice and a name for people to pick up on, most of the rest of the gay porn world will feel free to pretend it isn’t happening.

    ………

  • Drew Barrymore

    Another sad reality showed by the photo: many models won’t complain because porn studios own them with their drug addiction.

    • Not all pornstars are drug addicts.

  • EJ

    South Floridian here who a few years ago considered doing porn.

    Talked to Baileey a bit about shooting something. Wasn’t getting good vibes, but maybe not more than anyone else I had talked to the possibility about.

    He couldn’t give me any definitive answer other than “show up this Saturday.” Even when it came to position he was like, “Probably bottoming.” No idea who I’d be working with, what kind of sex it would have been, etc. Couldn’t even tell me what *type* of guy it would have been.

    They all act like they’re doing you a big favor to let you get fucked on camera in the back of a van or a sex shop by a stranger for $400, and that asking any questions or for definite answers is the most annoying thing. Like, I’m a nice smart kid who is thinking about making a very stupid, future threatening decision because I’ve got some self esteem issues and an exhibisionist side. I was well aware I wasn’t the worlds next porn superstar, but jeez.

    With Baileey the particularly shady moment was when he brought up the idea of me having a threesome with him and Dallas. I would have been into. My sexual morals at the time were like “Sure, I’ll have sex with someone gross like Baileey to get a chance at Dallas” and I probably still would have thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. But after me having asked a lot of about the on-set sex being safe and tested, he insisted the private sex would be bareback. So I was just like, “Actually bro, nah to all of this.”

    I know there’s more professional studios out there, but it never occurred to me to talk to anyone outside (plus a few of the producers had contacted me off a4a and Grindr).

        • dave1984

      • Colorful Kent

        WTF. I didn’t defend DR. You must be one of those self-haters who loves Hoopla. Calling me a troll and supporting the name calling of Lucas. Your a dick!

  • Zealot

    Suggested new logo for Dallas Reeves.com….

  • GN

    It’s those damn ObamaCare insurance mandates that are putting a strain on many business owners…

  • Where there is smoke there is fire and it is getting to be an inferno in Florida.

  • robirob

    It’s the shady dark side of (gay) porn.

    I know it’s very much a stereotype but all businesses that sell products and services with appealing looking people (model industry, porn industry, TV and movie shows, etc.) it’s all about exploiting pretty people for profit. And what is exploitation? When one party gets more out of the deal than the other party or parties (usually by screwing the other or others over by not keeping their promises).

  • Yeah Zach. Keep attacking you look best when you’re on the attack. 😛
