Pierce Paris Tells Fans That He’s “Not An Escort” Because He’s Not “Desperate For Money”

Posted November 19, 2018 by with 48 comments

main-1-860x550_cGay porn star Pierce Paris took to Twitter today to remind fans that while he is a gay porn star who has sex on film, he doesn’t do it because he’s “desperate for money.” And because he’s not “desperate for money,” he says he has no reason to be an escort:


The way that’s worded, it sounds like Pierce Paris sees escorts as “desperate for money,” and therefore somehow inferior to porn stars who don’t escort? That’s of course not true, as an escort is no more desperate for money than a porn star, a fireman, a cop, a stripper, a teacher, a garbage man, a blogger, or anyone working at any job who has to put food on their table and a roof over their head. Hopefully he just phrased it the wrong way, and he doesn’t think of himself as better than someone else simply because of the work he does or doesn’t do.

There was pushback on Pierce Paris’ tweet, both from fans and from fellow sex worker Sean Zevran:

    Basically, porn money is somehow superior to whoring money…gotta love a guy with integrity.

    • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

      The only difference between the two is if there’s a camera present.

      • MXD

        And the person you’re fucking is likely to be “more attractive”

        • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

          That’s not really the case, there are quite a few Jack Cruise like sites out there.

            I was just about to mention Daddy Mugs!

  • Scrapple

    Someone watched The Elephant Man the night before and felt inspired. That or he was hanging out with Brandon Cody.

    What’s funny is these same sentiments about porn work versus escort work used to take place in the debates of condomed porn versus bareback porn. Yeah, what Pierce said is all the way fucked up and snobbish, made even more so by the fact that he’s a guy who may or may not actually identify as non-hetero in his real life. But lets not pretend porn escorts don’t also look down their dicks at people who sell their bodies on actual corners. Tell Sean Zevran he does the same job as a street walker and see how fast he gets in his feelings to counter that shit.

    Every time I watch SVU I wonder about a parody with Pierce Paris as that ADA.

    What I took from Pierce’s statements is this. I will assume someone thought that since he is a performer (sex worker). They asked if he was an escort ( sex worker). In fact I’m sure several people have asked him for a few reasons. So to clear the air for himself he stated that even as a porn performer he is not an escort. That porn performance is a part time job for him. Because some porn performers state that porn is their part time job and escorting is their full time job. Using porn as an advertisement. At anytime did I think he was putting down anyone. No. Is there someone stirring the pot on here yes. Is this a site for rumors and drama, yes. Take from what I have said anyway you want. But stop and read everything especially between the lines.

    • No_No_No_Yes

      LOL but that’s the thing, I think he was genuinely taken aback at the notion someone thought he was “that kind” of boy. He could have simply said “No.” But he had to add a distinction and failed terribly.

      Baby, housewives and hookers have been pointing fingers at each other for years. But let me ask you this.

      Housewife “A” Sleeps with her man, in return he pays her bills, buys her nice things once in a while if she is lucky, and if she begs he will take out her garbage. In exchange she scrubs his dirty drawers, mops his floors, cooks and possibly tends his brats. If she is really lucky, he scores her a trip to Disneyland – she will fly “economy” fight everyone’s luggage, groupon meals, and economize like a bandit, she will herd his kids around for 3 days and 4 nights – then go home and start the rat race all over again.

      Hooker “B” Sleeps with her man, collects his money, accepts his lofty gifts, shoves him and his dirty drawers out the door, and pays someone else to do all that shit for her with zero argument, no snot nosed kids, and no droopy boobs and no stretch marks.He will fly her first class to elegant destinations, dine in the finest places, and rub her supple body with the finest oils. The stewards will load her bags, she will fly back the way she came and resume her life of leisure.

      You tell me who got the better deal.

      • Stuart

        Where do I sign up to be Hooker B?

        • No_No_No_Yes

    Pierce Paris may have worded the message badly and meant no offense, though offense can be inferred no matter how its delivered. If you do not escort it is easy enough to reply you don’t and leave it at that.

    “No I don’t escort. But if you’d like to see more of my work [insert short highlight of upcoming scene/movie but not your fucking only fans here].”

  • Tempest

    I thought you could make more money on escorting/cam shows rather than actual porn clips-movies? So if anything, it’s the other way around.

  • Hush-ins

    Words after the “I don’t do escort” could have been omitted or replaced with something less judging.
    This kind of reminds me of that MEN’s series about escort.

  • Tim

    This is probably a bit of an overreading of his intent. Pierce has some unusual red lines, at least to an outsider to the industry. He won’t perform with poz-undetectable performers but does a huge amount of bareback work for instance.

    All of which is his right. He can define his sexuality how he wants and i think he should be given agency to call his work what he pleases too. Fundamentally that is about his own well being and self definition.

    • peter

      He works for Men. Since they’re a condom site and (I understand) don’t test, he may very well have worked with Poz models.

      • Zachary Sire

        It’s my understanding that MEN tests for all their scenes produced in the U.S.

        • Tim

          ask them on twitter, they will certainly tell you that you have to pass all the screening tests and can’t come back as anything. if you believe them, Zach, well, you’d be in a better position than me to know.

          • Cosmic

            Studios can say a lot of things but I wouldn’t take just their word on something that important.

  • No_No_No_Yes

    I think it’s pretty clear Pierce didn’t think this through much before posting. The idea you think selling your ass to thousands at once is less “seedy” than what transpires between 2 consenting adults behind closed doors is comical.

    • peter

      Sometimes you give somebody the benefit of the doubt for an unfortunate choice of words. Others, it seems more like they’re tipping their hand. This sounds like the latter to me.

      • No_No_No_Yes

        Entirely possible, but I’d say his eyes are now opened. It certainly isn’t the first time someone acted a fool on Twitter and it certainly won’t be the last. It’s like the social pariah game that keeps on giving.

  • sanfv

    I live in San Francisco, the place where everyone is disabled, pansexual, a writer, homeless, polyamorous, woke, a sex worker, and amateur porn model. Pierce, bby, come here and be confused like everyone else.

    I think the word she is looking for is Heaux, but if I say that will Sean Zevran hit up my venmo asking for money for accountability because I wasn’t intersectional?

    “To defeat hegemony and capitalism, we must all be spot on in our critique of the patriarchy that illegitimatizes our profession of sucking dick for cashmoney.” -Sean “Woke” Zevran.

  • Galaxy_Scribe

    I’ve seen plenty of guys who don’t advertise that they escort, do it if you approach them. If you don’t do it, just say so.

    But acting like getting fucked on camera is any different than fucking in a hotel room…eye roll.

  • peter

    No two ways about it, she’s drawing an equivalency between escorting and desperation.

    For a long time I was a fan, but then all of a sudden he lost his allure. Maybe I finally took my eyes off the waist and looked upward.

    If she had to rely on escorting exclusively, she’d starve:



  • Pinko of the Grange

    Near all of us are prostitutes in some form or another. So most of us don’t have the moral high ground.

  • Xzamilloh

    Boy, Sean Zevran sure does love being on a soapbox, huh?

    • Scrapple

      It’s easier to see the wallet and crotch bulges when you’re that high up.

    • Hari Kalyan

      Refresh my memory…why does Sean get hate on here? (I’ve seen it a few times here where people throw collateral shade on him any time he chimes in)

      • Xzamilloh

        I can’t speak for anyone else. I just find him pretentious and fake woke. Like one of those types to try to call out someone else’s perceived tone deafness on social issues not in a manner to educate but to be superior.

  • SaintMike

    I would think the money is better in escorting? The clientele is probably ….

  • GayhawkAZ

    The porn historian in me is reminded that in the Golden Age of Porn (late 70s-mid 80s), Jeff Converse even said in an interview with Manshots magazine that he did porn strictly as a hobby and for the thrill of it. The man had a fantastically well-paying job that earned him six figures annually in 1984(? – I’d have to locate the issue of Manshots again). He did porn because he WANTED to do porn.

  • n24rc

    Kind of a “no win” scenario, he can put down his peers who do escort or put down the fans by saying the actual reasons why he doesn’t want to fuck them: No fats, Fems, or Asains. LMAO. Peirce works out and takes care of his body, so I can imagine he wants his sexual partners to match that effort in appearance…which is fair considering the effort he puts into it.

    Pierce doesn’t like the label of being an “escort” AKA, “hooker” or “prostitute,” yet porn is the legal version of prostitution…just the transaction of money is in a different order than the street scenario. So I’m not sure what the hangup is about that – but he’s human and entitled to some sexual hangups like the rest of humankind. So I’ll give him a pass.

    By the way, at this point, Pierce should just say he just wants to fuck other models because they are hot, and did this career on a lark to further his exploits, which are valid reasons too…not everything in the world revolves around money. Contrary to popular belief there are people who enjoy working at their jobs too.

    I like his work and don’t mind his intentions – I don’t think they were harmful. People should learn to cut some others slack on stuff. We’re not perfect.

  • Cosmic

    You fuck on film for money Mr. Paris, whether you want to think of yourself otherwise to most people…you a ho!

  • rcdcr

    The difference between escoprts and porn persormers is that one has sex for money and the other has sex for money.

    The difference between escorts and porn performers is that one has sex for money and the other has sex for money.

  • Maximus

    All consensual sex is transactional.
