Ryan Rose Announces Gay Porn Retirement: “It’s Time To Find My Place In This Big, Beautiful World”

Posted May 17, 2018 by with 74 comments

rysrwWay back in 2011, Ryan Rose made his gay porn debut on Sean Cody using a different name, “Pierce,” where he made history as the studio’s first model to perform in a bareback scene. After 14 Sean Cody scenes, more than 60 scenes as a Falcon Studios exclusive, multiple industry awards, and seven years of performing, Ryan Rose has announced his retirement from gay porn. The news comes after Rose filmed a co-production in Europe with BelAmi, and the announcement was posted to his Twitter earlier today:

ryroretireWhile some might disagree with Ryan Rose calling himself “maybe the last real” porn star, I think there’s a great deal of truth to that. His flawless physique, movie star good looks, and performance skills made him the kind of total package we don’t see very much anymore. And, he’s one of the few performers to have had such a lengthy, loyal career while remaining exclusive at just two studios (Sean Cody and Falcon).

Ryan Rose in 2011 vs. Ryan Rose in 2017:

rro2Adding to his “larger than life” persona was, of course, Ryan Rose’s bad boy image. He’s made controversial headlines over the years for arrests, break-ups, numerous Twitter wars, and even speaking out against Donald Trump. But, unlike some of his contemporaries, Rose was able to overcome his troubles, offered sincere apologies for his mistakes, and continued to turn in award-winning performances, including his recent Best Actor win at the Str8UpGayPorn Awards. And, he’ll be going out on the highest of highs with the BelAmi co-production, which will be released by NakedSword in September.

Ryan Rose (a.k.a. Pierce) with Sean Cody’s Brandon in 2011, and then again last year at the Str8UpGayPorn Awards:

branryRyan Rose will undoubtedly be missed by his fans and his peers (and probably his detractors, too), both for his performances and his personality, but his work will obviously live on forever. While we await his final scenes, here’s a clip from Ryan Rose’s very first scene released in 2011, as Sean Cody’s Pierce:

    Goddamn.
    I know lots of people didn’t think he was attractive (my boyfriend makes fun of me for jerking off to him) but I thought RR was crazy fuckin’ handsome.
    He’ll be missed for sure.

    • jviia

      agree, that ass is divine!

      • Ceecee

        I also kinda lived for his hammy acting.

        For being this big macho marine boy you can bet miss Rose did some highschool acting or whatever.

    • TheSagaOf

      Ditto. Only got hotter as time went on, in my opinion.

    • Maximus

      Why do you watch porn if you have a boyfriend? Isn’t that one of the benefits of having a boyfriend?

      • Ceecee

        Isn’t watching porn together kinda normal for gay couples?

        ALSO we just have different body clocks so he’s asleep like hours before I am. So, ya know.

        • Maximus

          Is it? I completely lose interest in all other men when I’m in a relationship.

          Sounds like you two need to pull out your respective calendars and schedule a time to pull out your respective dicks!

          • john a

            Most get bored of sex with one guy only after a while. So porn is definitely one of the resources available to keep them from going completely depressed and bitter till breaking up.

          • Maximus

            That’s……really sad.

  • peter

    Well, Calvin makes anyone look good so that’s not fair. Also Pierce got to tap Jamie in his only bareback scene, which may be even better.

    • Default_User

      Jamie was so damn adorable.

      • peter

        He still gives me palpitations! The accent. In the BTS walking around on his hands.

        I believe in his AskFM Ryan described Jamie as a ‘Sean Cody legend’. I also recall he said that Calvin was a super-sweet guy but straight :(

        • emercycrite

          Calvin is straight.

  • sxg

    I’d say I’m so glad this boyfriend-beating Republican has finally fucked off from the industry, but we all know he doesn’t have any worthwhile skill sets outside of porn so he’ll be back, even if it’s in some sadass desperate form of porn like Onlyfans/Justforfans.

    • von schlomo

      I can’t get past the “movie star” good looks. He’s a butter face. You’d guess he was on the Spectrum. Maybe he is.

  • wdeee

    I don’t think I’ve ever watched a scene of his in full…

    Gimme 3 suggestions.

    • Zachary Sire

      The two that were mentioned in the post.

      Also, the one with Carter Dane was good.

      • B.C.

        Every scene featuring Carter Dane is good, but I really warmed up to Ryan last couple of years. I wish him luck.

      • Sebastian S

        One of Ryan’s better scenes, but also my least favorite Carter Dane scene, oddly.

  • czer

    Bye Felicia.

  • Jbj

    I always appreciated Ryan’s sexy looks and consistently awesome performances…he’ll be missed! 🙌

  • Scrapple

    Ryan may have had a consistently flawless body, but he was also a consistently puffy asshole. Not just mean and spiteful, he was hateful. Especially when other models got a little bit of shine. Pierce was cool. He was laid back, kind of shy and didn’t take himself seriously. Ryan was an egotistical douchebag, a shitty friend, a shitty boyfriend and a shitty caretaker of hundred dollar bills. Ryan, it has been…something.

    • peter

      Thank you for pointing out the Jekyll and Hyde Pierce/Ryan Rose dichotomy!

    • sxg

      Actually you can kind of tell what an asshole he was during his SC days if you saw the way he spoke to some of the models in the BTS segments. It was only a handful of moments but enough to go back to watch and realize he was never really a good person to begin with.

    • Maximus
      • Scrapple

        She makes it so easy!

        • Maximus

          She does. She really, really does.

    • Dean67

      It’s heartbreaking, or maybe just stiffy deflating, that nature pairs such a gorgeous exterior with a shite personality. There’s got to be some lovely non-looker out there who would have made the world a better place if he’d got blessed with that bod.

  • PARKERC

    Hopefully it’s for good. While he’s at it he take Johnny V and Austin Wolf with him. All have been overused by Falcon for the last four years. Falcon is going to do the same for Alam Wernik and Dave Slick. Both will be in every other release for the coming years.

    • von schlomo

      All three just miserable. Johnny V signs his own death warrant before he even takes his clothes off as his mouth runs incessantly. Austin Wolf in his OnlyFans was wearing his OnlyCockring. I mean, if you can’t get hard with a hot piece of ass in your bedroom with just a camera sitting idly on a tripod, what the fuck is the problem? Porn is for the virile!

    • James Johnson III

      I’m with you on Johnny V. I absolutely don’t understand how he is so popular

    • sporty1

      Johnny V. Is a flipping moronic wannabe scam douche who has no business in porn…Sucking Yuck is Johnny V!…😷

  • c_find
  • Dana Rimons

    Best news all week! Good riddance.

  • Trepakprince

    I hope his excel skills are just as good as his talent for trolling people on Twitter.

    • Scrapple

      Well at least with Excel there’s no temptation to create cunty spreadsheets slamming someone who works at the same company…and then that person later commits suicide.

      • Drunky McDrunkerson

        wha?

  • buffy2004
  • Carrel

    Scene where he fucked Connor Kline was hot. I like watching Kline’s faux-tough rapist face convulse when he’s fucked

  • peter

    I’d forgotten that Pierce said he was bisexual. Has he backed off that since?

    Pierce showed-up at SC in the same general time-frame as that other sorta bi ex-Leatherneck, Ashton. I wonder if they knew each other from the Corps? Which also makes me wonder why he was never mentioned as a guest at a Republican-of-a-certain-age size-queen’s house parties?

    There at least a couple of other marines in that period. It seemed like SC was poaching on AD. Stunning Chase was one. I can’t recall if Peter was.

    • Joey

      Pretty sure David was one too, no? He had a dog tag tat and made a vague passing mention in one of the scenes I think.

      San Diego is a USMC hub so I wouldn’t be surprised if SC casting tried to scoop up as many as possible.

      • peter

        David, Dorian, DJ, Bryan, Conrad!

  • Kanaka

    Wow. He has chicken legs in that first pic. Props then, for he def worked them and the rest of that bod. I ran hot and cool with Ryan. Who here hasn’t acted up while young much less in the spotlight. I wish him nothing but the best. Good luck!

    • Hereweare

      Best post on here. Agreed!

  • Hereweare

    I once witnessed in person him having a total bitchfest at the table next to mine at the restaurant at Parliament House in Orlando, FL.
    Reading his twitter rants are nothing next to the up-close view.
    Thank you Ryan, for that moment of gay porn legend realness.
    Your ridiculousness will be truly missed!

    • peter

      Best remembered as Pierce

  • nerfherder1989

    How long until we see a picture of him floating around outside of someones pickup truck being a mess and high on meth ?

  • OverKill

    Goodbye, didn’t care for any of your scenes or your rancid personality.

  • n24rc

    he will back. bet on it.

  • n24rc

    Any formal retirement announcement, I’m skeptical about.

  • rcdcr

    Great body, but a face only his mother could love. If she was blind.

    • von schlomo

      There is no accounting for taste but there’s a gulf between fugly and everyone else here’s seeing “sexy” and “movie star” looks. I also didn’t see anyone point out his lackluster dick, especially when his undoctored Sean Cody pic is right next to his Falcon’s where they photoshop the fuck out of every model’s dick. So, now we’re just left with body and performance with dick and face being average, at best.

      • peter

        Jeez you’re right about the photoshopping!!!

    • peter

      Those pictures of him next to Felix Fellington, Brandon, and Carter Dane don’t help his cause

  • James Johnson III

    He had one of the biggest egos in porn but his performances were rarely less than stellar. His scene with Christian Wilde was the porn equivalent to Clash of the Titans for me. I’m grateful that we got to see his rise to fame and see him go out on top. So few porn stars do

  • peter

    He’s retiring just like Brysen did

  • PaulieP

    lets hope it is a CLEAN break.

  • Hari Kalyan

    Meh not so much movie star good looks more like “hearthrob extra #2” on a Ryan Murphy tv production

  • Robert Michael Todd

    finally.

  • Ninja0980

    I quit watching Ryan when he beat the shit out of his ex-boyfriend.
    Vile human being whom I won’t miss one bit.

  • John

    Lots of porn stars are Republican because most of them are from the South and Midwest…. where Republicans are from. Ryan was great at Sean Cody. Probably a good performer at Falcon, but I don’t watch condom porn. What Ryan gave you, besides being a gorgeous 10 , was good porn gossip. I’m all for that.

  • 2345

    I hope he stays away for good!

  • emercycrite

    The last real gay porn star? Bitch please. Sit down.

  • pilot101

    Never been fan of his face but he has an amazing body

  • pilot101

    The last big lost in porn was Tex Davidson. He’s a beast on bed. I didn’t know he retired till yesterday. wtf. :(

    • GayhawkAZ

      Please give me recommendations on scenes with this donkey dicked fellow!

  • Jc

    Damn perfect white hole and cock total package hell be missed :).

  • YandyDandy

    New career as a barman ? DJ? Personal Trainer ? Real Estate ? **insert other standard retired porn performers new careers**

    • B.C.

      Or is he sugar to some rich daddy? That would be nice retirement plan.

  • GayhawkAZ

    When Chi Chi LaRue revealed a Falcon poster for the Grabbys, I pointed out that Ryan’s star had fallen drastically, given his position on the poster, in the back row on the far left. LaRue said I was being mean. Bitch, please. You could tell the status of Rose, Wolff, and Johnny V because they were at the back of the poster and the new blood like Dave Slick and Alam Wernick were right front and center.

    That graphic designer knew what was up!

  • sporty1

    Will Johnny V. please go bye-bye…👋

    • Drunky McDrunkerson

      Don’t worry, he snorts enough coke on the reg that mixed with the roids will probably give her a stroke or heart attack in no time.

  • R.A.M.J

    I totally forgot about him.
