I eagerly waited for the series to begin. There was a lot of hype on the series on several gay porn sites, and Here TV (gay cable channel that runs on cable)does have quality programing. The first 2 episodes appeared on the Here TV's "On Demand" section.

 

I wondered what others thought of the episodes. Frankly, I am disappointed in the first 2. I wonder if the videographer wanted to make the models look unattractive. None of the models were shot in favorable lighting or in flattering positions. Also, I was surprised at the choices for the models. I consider myself well acquainted with gay porn, and read reviews, interviews, etc. It seemed to me I only knew a few of the stars chosen. I wonder if more popular stars were approached.

 

What did the rest of you who watched think? Is this series worth following?

Plus they've been trained to avoid looking directly at the camera and it appears that the cameraman is asking the questions so that there's too little eye contact. And then there's the all too frequent disclosure of dysfunctional family backgrounds like sexual abuse, rape etc. Only few (Benton, Hazzard, maybe Piston and one other) seem to be intelligent or interesting enough to want to get to know as anything other than porn stars. Benton went to law school? Unless the guys get more interesting, they'll have to provide more dirt on how the industry functions to keep my interest.

If I'm not mistaken, they've chatted with/interviewed everyone that's in the show intro, except for Harlow Cuadra. I'm presuming at some point he will be included in the series, and I'm interested in hearing what he has to say.

 

I've not seen much of Bret Wolfe's work, but I was surprised at how feminine he was.

 

And I've always been a fan of Johnny Hazzard and Nick Capra and now having seen a bit more of their "real" personality, I'm even more attracted than I was before.

 

Other than that, I was hoping for "more" from this documentary series. And I do agree the lighting is HORRIBLE. Not sure why they would purposely choose to using lighting in that manner.

LOL! Been doing porn here for a few years... had that pre porn acadamia career prior to doing the porn. Having been in Construction, Stone Masonry, Done cancer and immunology research, worked in hospitals, corporations, (worked anywhere from 80 to 95 hours a week to afford school while attending), and now in Porn and Escorting... I can tell you that the same crazy crap drama that happens in the porn industry happens pretty much anywhere else~ (Dysfuntional Families and relationships, drugs, emotional issues, life joy, death whatever~)

Now if some of these more educated and intersting porn guys would use their talents and brains to make some major changes in the world the show might be more intersting.

Escorts actually do more beyond their own interst to change things in the world. The show should have been about them.

There are a few Porn guys that really have moved to make a difference in the world. Will Clark for example. GREAT guy who really deserves some kind of award for all of the money he has made and donated to the Gay community outreach programs. He's done Porn Bingo, Bad Boys parties and more. This guy's relaxation time is fund raising to better the gay community~ He is truely AMAZING!!!!

I am wondering if they might be using the porn guy thing as a point of departure and then will create the Hollywood writing craft into it somehow to make things more entertaining?

It would be my hope that the show does not focus too much on the general dysfuntional qualities that happen in most any faction of life but more so on the contributions and positive attributes the industry provides. There are many of those as well as the drama. I kind of want to see something that defines us as worthy and valid individuals as opposed to tragic downtroddens.

It;s just the begining of the show though so maybe they just want to show how people view them as the sterotype and will work to change that perception over time.
