Collin Simpson is stepping away from the adult film world (and maybe forever).
Collin Simpson is the most popular adult performer on the site Gayhoopla, and its straight/sister site Hot Guys F***, but it looks like his flourishing career at the site was also his downfall.
The adult film star recently posted to Twitter to share that after a 3-year-run, he will be stepping away from the business. Part of the reason is that he’s shot too many videos with the Gayhoopla. Simpson has appeared in over 40 scenes for the site and shares that they have 30 more unreleased scenes. This doesn’t include the scenes he’s recorded for the sister site.
But, overproducing wasn’t the only issue. The other part of Simpson’s problem is a much darker reason.
“I have been struggling with addiction for the last few months, affecting the quality of my work,” wrote the adult film star.
“I’ve never spent any money from my fans on illicit substances,” he explained further. “Because of my battle with addiction, Gayhoopla no longer wants to honor our contract and won’t allow me the monthly rent allowance for fear of enabling my addiction even though that money goes straight to rent and nothing else.”
Collin Simpson then shared that he’s also having other monetary issues such as dealing with a faulty car.
“My car that I just scraped up enough money to buy took a sh*t and died. The engine seized due to lack of oil. The oil light didn’t come on, and even though I had checked the oil this morning and it was fine, over the course of driving it leaked out.”
“So this may be my farewell, unless I can get work with another company.”
Simpson later shared that he’s seeking help for his drug addiction.
“Because of these things my porn career may be coming to an end,” he wrote. “I’m currently in the process of getting help, but it’s too little too late. Sorry I let you all down, I’ll do my best to come back better than ever.”
So, it looks like Collin Simpson’s time with GayHoopla is over. But, he isn’t necessarily retiring from adult films. He’s just hoping someone else will wish to work with him.
This is the second big announcement that Simpson has made within the past year or so. The other one was when Simpson came out as bisexual. Back then, he wrote:
“I don’t like to label myself, however if I had to say for certain, I’m bisexual with a preference for women. I am sexually attracted to men, but I have yet to experience love for another man like I have had for a woman…. This could just as easily happen to me with a man, and I’m very curious to see what, the real aspect of having a male partner is like.”
But he then explained, “That being said, I HAVE had relations with a man outside of work and, in fact, am searching for my next partner. I prefer a high level of muscularity; clean cut with tasteful tattoos and a huge c*ck!”
We here at Instinct Magazine wish Simpson the best in his rehabilitation and recovery from drug addiction. And if anyone out there is dealing with similar drug issues, know that you can find him. One place to start is by calling SAMHSA’s National Hotline.
