Is It Offensive To Release New Scenes With Dead Gay Porn Stars?

This weekend, MenAtPlay is releasing a brand new scene, “The Game,” featuring the long-since retired and mentally ill Jake Genesis, Samuel Colt, Issac Jones, Morgan Black, and deceased gay porn star Wilfried Knight. As you’ll recall, Knight hanged himself in March, 2013.

TheGame20MenAtPlay waited nearly a year to release the content, which was obviously done out of respect for Knight. But how soon is “too soon” to release footage of dead gay porn stars having sex? Is there never an appropriate time? Or, should porn featuring dead actors be treated no differently than mainstream movies featuring dead actors? After all, The Dark Knight was released just six months after Heath Ledger’s death, and he went on to win an Oscar posthumously.

Will you watch MenAtPlay’s “The Game,” or is Wilfried Knight’s suicide still too fresh in your mind?

    no, nothing wrong with it. If he had been a mainstream performer, actor, musician or other, it would be done. Same should be true for adult performers

    I agree with Bull in the mainstream industry it would have been done, And in the case of them dying in the middle of a scene, they would have been replaced, if not reworked. When Aaliyah died, her scenes in Matrix 2 were re-shot. When Heath Ledger died, there were 2 other actors that played his character in place of him rather than cut him out in that one weird movie The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus. It would be interesting to see what Fast 7 does.

    Let’s face it, there are still scenes from Joey Stefano to Arpad & Eric Rhodes still out there. Why should MAP be any different?

      I’m curious how many Erik Rhodes scenes there are out there, considering that Raging Stallion usually has a delay of up to 6 months on releasing scenes.

  • If someone is dead it doesn’t matter, it was video owned prior to and they did respectful enough giving it some time.

    I thought his compenion hanged himself to save the pills to Knight. I didn’t know that Jake Genesis was ‘mentally ill’…

    I only find it offensive when they pretend as if the guy is still alive or the studio claims it’s new, when everyone knows it’s not. I remember when Jake Cruise tried to do that years ago with the model “NIck”.
