Drugs are bad, mmkay?

Adult performer Roman Todd had a near death experience on Tuesday, July 4th, when he suffered a severe drug overdose in Los Angeles International Airport. The source of his almost fatal overdose was an Oxycodone pill laced with Fentanyl. Thankfully, the porn star has made a mostly complete recovery following the ordeal. 


Sources are reporting that fellow adult performer Ricky Larkin supplied him with the drugs. However, this part of the story has not been 100% confirmed and needs to be taken with a grain of salt. There are two sides to every story, despite Todd and Cliff Jensen (“Bad Ass Bottoms”) releasing texts somewhat supporting their claims. 

Jensen also claims that had Todd overdosed in a bathroom stall and not in public in LAX, he would most likely be deceased today. Worse for everyone involved, imagine if it happened on the plane he was due to board. After five long minutes of being unresponsive, Todd was revived with a Narcan injection. 


He is currently recovering at an undisclosed location. I pray this is a learning lesson and he can get his life back on track. 

Earlier this year, Roman Todd received the Performer of the Year Award at GAYVN.

  1. This is unfortunate for him. Drugs are never the answer. It must be hard to stay clean in that business where drugs are rampant.

  2. Damn. So bummed to hear that he does drugs, but I’m probably just naïve, never having done anything other than pot (and not until it became legdl here in Canada).

    He’s one of my favourite porn actors, if not my current favourite. Such a hot guy, blessed with such a beautiful dick, and having the genes and discipline to sculpt a great body.

    Hopefully he has learned his lesson from this, and will get his life on-track. If that means quitting porn (let’s face it, the life of porn actors lends itself to drug addiction ) so be it.

    I’ll be amongst a large group who’ll miss him, but better that he stays alive and well.

  3. It seems like a lot of gay porn stars struggle with addiction, please get help. We don’t need anymore gay men to die young needlessly. I know it’s hard (10 years sober here) but I will tell you it’s worth it.
