Sean Cody Model Smith Has Been Removed From Sean Cody

Posted August 1, 2017 by with 84 comments

smithrwHis solo was released less than two weeks ago, on July 23rd, but Sean Cody newcomer Smith has been completely erased from Sean Cody’s site as of today, August 1st. Any guess as to why?

DSC06409While it could be a technical issue on Sean Cody’s website, in my nearly 10 years of covering Sean Cody, that’s never happened. In fact, over the last decade, there’s never been a single instance of a Sean Cody model being removed from the site (with the exception of Sean Cody’s owner removing his own old videos, which were filmed during the studio’s first few years).

DSC06290Given that there are literally convicted murderers and sex offenders with multiple videos on Sean Cody, it’s unlikely that Smith’s profile was pulled because of a crime he committed. The cached version of Sean Cody (showing what was visible on July 30th, just two days ago) shows Smith’s scene as it was released on July 23rd, in between Dean & Manny and Robbie & Frankie:

seccahed

The current version now, with Smith’s profile removed:

sce2If there were legal or extreme circumstances surrounding Smith’s removal, Sean Cody presumably would’ve emailed porn blogs asking them to remove his promo material (even though there’s no way to erase something like this from the entire internet after it’s released), but that hasn’t happened. I’ve reached out to Sean Cody for comment as to why Smith’s video was removed, and will update this post when and if they respond.

In the meantime, here’s the Smith trailer:

Thoughts?

    More than likely a technical issue. As you said there hasn’t been a crime heinous enough to remove a model’s content from this site. If it is just a technical issue, then…

    MindGeek tossed the old SC rule book out the window when they took over.

    Performers are allowed on social media, can move over to associated studios/brands without waiting a year, and the traditional video catalog system are now random numbers. Smith’s traditional video ID is 2309, but according to MG it’s 1936072. That messes with my sense of order.

    • peter

      Unlike the Helix boys, who have a gift for self-promotion, I doubt the legitimacy of the Sean Cody model twitter accounts.

  • Marik Ishtar

    I wonder if there’s some Angelea Preston shenanigans going on. Maybe he fucked the producer’s wife or is the long lost son of some Mind Geek tycoon and this was his way of saying “Notice me Daddy!” Have you rewatched the video and picked up any hidden signals? Maybe every stroke of his dick was Morse code, sending cum signals warning us of impeding doom.

    Be vigilant Zach, we only have a finite amount of white, gay-for-pay actors and we can’t afford for any one of them to disappear!

      LOL. They didn’t care when KKL’s son Nick was all “Notice me Mommy!” so we can probably scratch that one off the list.

      RIP Lynne Thigpen. I feel like I should be singing an a cappella version of “Lean on Me” in your honor.

          And he was super cute! Wish he had stuck around, but it’s probably better he didn’t.

          • GayhawkAZ

            I still wonder what the conversations were like on the set of B&B when the news came out that KKL’s son was doing porn.

          • Scrapple

            I’m sure the tea being spilled was Bold & Beautiful.

          • GayhawkAZ

            When all that news came down, all I could think of was Susan Flannery sitting in her dressing room silently judging KKL. And probably laughing her ass off, too.

          • Scrapple

            With the spirit of Darlene Conley.

          • GayhawkAZ

            My god, YES!

            As much as I love Patrika Darbo (and I do, she helped me win on a game show) they should have never chosen her to play Sally. They should have never brought Sally back, period. Darlene Conley was one of a kind.

          • Scrapple

            That’s funny about the game show. Yeah, Patrika is feisty, but it’s more cutesy feisty. Not really the best choice. I guess they wanted honor Darlene’s character, but it’s such an odd choice. They almost always have an iconic character pass away when his/her portrayer dies. How tack would it be if DooL kept referring to Alice Horton convalescing in a nursing home offscreen?

          • GayhawkAZ

            I completely agree. I can think of countless numbers of veteran soap actors who passed away and in every case, the show found a way to have the character exit the show. Mostly it was death, maybe it was traveling the world, which, if I recall correctly, that was supposed to be what Sally was doing. One thing is for certain, this idea of having Patrika Darbo play Sally would have never worked if Susan Flannery had still been there. I recall that she and Darlene were very close friends off camera as well and I’m certain she would have found the idea of bringing Sally back as a irredeemable character (as she was in the beginning of B&B) reprehensible.

          • Scrapple

            It’s probably laziness on the part of the writers. It’s easier to keep a character with a rich history and glom from that rather than create someone new.

          • GayhawkAZ

            Oh, undoubtedly. I’m disappointed in Bradley Bell for succumbing to a retread. His father would have been much more creative.

        • Stacy

          What is this story???? Do you have a link?

      • Sebastian S

        If you sing it, you have to do that shoulder shimmy she does at the end.

      • Devin

        I thought you were saying the lady in the photo passed. I was like oh no. I love her. Then I Googled Lynn Thigpen. Nooooooooooooooooo….not Miss Barrett!! RIP I love when she was like “we’ll just have to vote your Black ass out” or something like that to Morgan Freeman Lol

        • Scrapple

          Lol. I get how that could’ve been confusing. The a cappella comment was to tie-in the song with Marik’s Carmen Sandiego gif. I loved that show.

          I haven’t seen Lean on Me in years. I’ll have to watch it sometime soon. That movie inspired Tiffany Pollard to popularize the term “HBIC.”

          • Devin

            omg I gotta watch that again…I forgot about the whole “HNIC” thing. I love that movie and the big Black lady who was on stage singing is so sweet…..I want to hug her. I had to laugh because my friend’s mom looks like Lynn Thigpen. We should be friends. I love New York. I was just watching that clip the other day where she told Laura stand in your blackness in all SHADESSSSSS lmao

          • Scrapple

            Tiffany is on that E show Famously Single or something like that. She also has a cameo in the next Sharknado movie, which I think premieres this weekend.

          you’re just on all the threads, aren’t ya? you go with your fulfilling, comment-rife life! and yes, i get the irony of my comment, but i do not spend life behind my keyboard.i only scrolled down by accident and found the rockapella and b&b and church-tested wig tangents to be hysterical. and yes, i know i’m blocked because you’re so above it all :). hurry everyone, run to his defense and rip me to shreds, oh-kurrrrrr?!?!!!!

  • Jace

    Corbin Fisher removed the entire oeuvre of Blake because he was fucking the site owner (and assume he still is, because his videos are still not available and he made a lot of them). Maybe Smith got lucky and his sugar daddy wants him all for himself.

  • TonyLA

    There are actually quite a few videos and models removed from the site from the early years. The order of those early videos has been changed around too. The first model on SC was porn star Michael Brandon and he also appeared in the 4th scene “Michael Brandon’s Sex Party”. The earliest surviving video is #6, a one-timer named Ken. Probably about the time you started covering SC there was another guy removed because he was younger than he claimed (.i.e, underage). That may be the reason that early models have been removed. Maybe they didn’t ID on file and SC didn’t want to be non-compliant with 2257 laws

    • cc this c

      I remember a guy from about 10 years ago that vanished. He had obviously dyed his hair black as though he were trying to disguise himself. Even the write-up said something like he kept laughing uncomfortably. I always guessed that he regretted giving the Internet a show and handed back the check in return for being erased.

    • JCub

      Which one was underage?

    • peter
    • Pinko of the Grange

      Or they found out it was fake. Even if he is of majority, a fake Id can cause problems that aren’t worth the effort.

    • musicaltheatergeek79

      I discovered SC in 2003, and I recall around the time that I joined, there was a high school teacher that Sean met while dropping off videos at Blockbuster (per the description). He went by the name ‘Richard.’ It was to be just a solo, but back in the day, Sean couldn’t help himself and eventually ended up giving the guy a BJ. I was a broke college student and couldn’t afford a membership, so I never got to see it. Then it was removed shortly thereafter. Bummer.

  • skye3245

    But Emmett ignorant ass along with Jarec and those murderers are still on there…oh well. I’m curious whats so bad that he could have done

  • Maximus
  • Adam

    Maybe a release wasn’t signed or signed using a fake name and the model changed his mind.

  • Sailor_V90

    What does Sean Cody look like?

    • JCub
      • Sailor_V90

        I’ve been curious.
        Thanks

        • JCub

          Kinda cute, in a pale, nerdy sort of way. I always enjoyed watching him interact with the models.

          • Sailor_V90

            Oh most definitely nerdy cute.
            Hmm, I wonder why he stopped interacting with the models?

          • Mike Julius

            On camera, you mean? Probably insecurity. You know how vicious gay porn audiences can be. I mean, I think he was good, but I’m sure there was more than one negative comment about his looks, the “poor, hot” models, and money.

          • 2345

            I don’t think WB or too mny other blogs were around when Sean appeared in the early 2000s

          • Mike Julius

            Forums were. And producers checked them to see how their product was being received and if it was being pirated.

          • OneOfTheManyChris

            He doesn’t fit the Sean Cody look–maybe it was branding as much as negative feedback.

          • peter

            Sean ‘Cody’ didn’t fit the look of Sean Cody?!?! I think he intentionally sought out younger versions of himself, physically at least. There was that one tripod, Zack (who also did solos for Fratmen) who looked like he could have been a hot LDS missionary.

          • peter

            Probably because he didn’t want to be compared to Jake Cruise

            He continued to do interviews. One solo, Mack, really had him going.

      • peter

        Cute in an adorkable MBA or CPA on ‘Business Casual Day’ kind of way.

        Big dick. Thick.

        I wish they hadn’t pulled his scenes. He looked so cute with cum in his hair and on his pastel LaCoste shirts.

      • imaxly

        is he still the owner? i cannot find anything about him on google.

    • Josh in OR

      Picture Ted Schmidt in Season 2 of Queer as Folk. When he ran the porn studio…hmm…

  • mtxb2010

    Cuz his dick is most unsexy…

    • peter

      Pin-dick

  • Zealot
  • peter

    Way back Corbin Fisher had CollegeDudes pull Brody Grant’s scenes until (I guess) his non-compete clause expired.

    Remember when Bobby showed up on Corbin Fisher as Jacob the week after his solo was released. Thank God they released his scene with Jayden afterward, which was the best thing he ever did.

    • nbtx27

      Fantastic performer for a straight guy. One of CF’s top guys EVER.

  • Scrapple

    There was that one model a few years back who had his solo pulled after he showed up on GH soon after. I think his name was Clark something on GH. But I can’t remember if his solo was actual posted on the site or if they had only released a preview and then replaced his solo with another when they found out he had lied.

    As for Smith, it could be a mental health issue. Like when CF pulled all of Clay’s scenes after his suicide.

    • 2345

      Clark Bates from early 2016. It’s on WB under a dramatic title- Clark 3 Banned Scene.

      If Smith has mental health issues, bottoming may be his cure ;-|

    • CA

      Yeah, I remember the Clark scandal, his scene was never posted.

      • Scrapple

        And we see where that integrity stance has put them.

  • danny

    Some of my favorite scenes for which I signed up at SC were no longer there. Other scenes with the performers were still on the site so I don’t get why they’re gone.

  • Marcus Collack

    Well…they did remove the original lane. He was tall, adorkable, had massive pecs, a big dick, and came a lot. He was the first seancody model to go missing way back when, but he had asked sean to take it down and he did, but you know that didn’t stop tube sites.

    • PreludeToA

      SEND NUDES

  • 2345

    I wouldn’t have objected if a dick accidentally slid into Smith’s ass. I hope it’s just a technical issue and not a “panic attack” from the model

  • nbtx27

    There are plenty of much worse studios, but when you compare the SC of today with what it was prior to the purchase by MG, you see how bad it’s become in comparison.
    Absolutely 2017 is the worst year ever by SC, though 2016 and 2015 wern’t very good either.
    MG totally ruined the site.
    Still worth joining for a month — only to watch the old scenes.

    • Dale Bergman

      I think 2015 was a very good year for Sean Cody. I have so many scenes downloaded. The Randy/Curtis scene is truly classic. 2016 was a good year. This year has been very, very disappointing.

  • peter

    Bromo? RealityDudes? IconMale? LucasEntertainment?

    I’d add GayHoopla, but they’ve never had any pretense for being professional. Bad camera work is as much a part of their ambiance as it is for SketchySex

    • Dale Bergman

      I’m not really familiar with any of those studios. Did they have a year when almost all of their scenes were technically botched and poorly directed?

  • CA

    Jason doesn’t like the really attractive ones.

  • DJ

    Is it possible they found out he was under age??
    It seems like that would be the only reason to completely erase him.

    • Zachary Sire

      That is not possible, as affiliates/blogs would be notified to remove the promo content.

      • DLK

        QueerClick removed their post.
