A closer look at the ‘gay for pay’ porn industry

Curious enough to check out another version of reality TV (as you follow these “broke straight boys” rehearsing scenes in the studio, discussing their perspectives on life, money, and the justifications for doing gay for pay on film)? Check out BrokeStraightBoys.TV.

Two (or more) hetero-identifying guys going at it to make you have fun is the premise of the “gay for pay” porn industry. Now – whether you believe this to be true or not – is entirely up to you.

But BluMedia, an independent media production company, released an eight-episode reality show called “BrokeStraightBoys.TV“, which is made available for free online to give everyone a glimpse on straight men who create gay adult films and the multi-million dollar company that provides the platform.

No, there’s no nudity or sexual acts are shown in the series; instead, it aims to be more… intellectual and provide a “true character study” to bring the viewer into “a world they may not have known existed and will surely never forget.”

Spotlighting the various people involved in this taboo and unconventional lifestyle, the show examines the dynamic relationships between Mark Erickson, owner of BluMedia, his staff, and the models. Every month, Erickson houses a number of these straight young men in his multi-million dollar mansion while they do scenes at a nearby studio.

The industry is shrouded in controversy, but Erickson believes people are unfairly judging his creation. “There are a lot of people who have a negative view of the entire gay for pay business, but these are grown adults who are capable of making their own decisions. There are plenty of positives that I believe the show will help showcase. We have brought guys off the streets. We have models that were homeless and this helped them get back on their feet,” he said.

There are a lot of assumptions regarding the “gay for pay” adult genre. Many critics believe it is nothing more than a marketing tactic. Critics argue that these boys are really just conflicted gay men who are packaged to fulfill the “unattainable” straight boy fantasy. The new reality show attempts to delve into the subject to answer these questions.

“Critics often don’t believe that we’re straight, but in certain circumstances, a lot of us need the money so bad that you do what you have to. It becomes less of an issue about sexuality and more about survival. When you have no money… can’t buy diapers for your kid… you’ll do what it takes to provide for your family,” said performer Jimmy Johnson. “I’m supporting my family and that’s what a real man does. It would take me months at a fast food restaurant to make what I do in a weekend.”

“We’re just like one big dysfunctional family, except that we have sex with each other,” said performer Kaden Alexander. “‘Broke Straight Boys’ is like my second family.”
