Gay wrestler Dave Marshall is making headlines for a great cause (with a NSFW twist).
We’ve heard of making porn for profit, but porn for charity? That’s exactly what wrestler Dave Marshall, who works with the Southern Hemisphere Wrestling Alliance, is doing and he’s getting a lot of attention for it.
The 29-year-old wrestler from Perth, Australia and his boyfriend have been recording their intimate bedroom time and making them semi-public. Though, anyone who wants to see these adult scenes will have to throw their money at a paywall.
Marshall has created an OnlyFans page and become an indie porn producer, but told GayStarNews that it’s not out of vanity. Instead, Marshall says he hopes to do something good with (some of) the profits.
“After some thought, I did start it up with part [of the] proceeds going to Beyond Blue – a suicide prevention charity,” he explained.
Marshall later elaborated on an Instagram post, where he said:
“The reason the money I raise from my OnlyFans goes towards Beyond Blue is seeing everyday how big depression and anxiety has become in society and almost overlooked.
[It’s my] first time saying this but my father took his life last year.
Older men have a “Harden the fuck up” mentality they were brought up with.
Stats on LGBT in this area are quite scary too so I hope I can in some way, give back to my community. Positivity is everything.”
So far, Marshall has raised over $3,500 for Beyond Blue.
