The Gay Adult Film Stars That Set The Blueprint For Gay Porn Today

With all of recent controversy surrounding OnlyFans (and what many people were saying about the company and their lack of respect and consideration for sex workers), we just wanted to make it clear… that not only do we respect sex workers and performers – but we appreciate them!

Whether you started an OnlyFans account last month or you collaborate with major studios, we appreciate you. Whether you’re the star in the scene making that money (while taking the money shot), or you’re the genius that’s producing behind the scenes, we appreciate you.

So we decided to pay respect to some of the biggest stars that have put themselves out there and have paved the way for many performers today, from both the past and present. Here’s a list of 21 Gay Porn Icons that have kept us entertained throughout the years.


COLTON FORD

This well endowed performer can easily be thrown into the debate of Daddy of all Daddies, Colton Ford (real name Glenn Soukesian) has starred in many celebrated gay films. He won the Gay Performer of the Year honor at the 2003 GayVN Awards. Ford has also ventured into an acting and singing career. He has performed in scripted television shows, on off-broadway and has released dance/club music as recently as of this summer.

BOBBY BLAKE 

This legend has appeared in more than 100 adult films. Not only did Blake (real name Edgar Gaines) dominate the industry, he dominated a lot of his costars in the bedroom (or alley, dungeon, jail cell… you get the point). Blake retired from porn in 2001 and has detailed his life in porn in his 2008 autobiography My Life in Porn: The Bobby Blake Story. Blake now resides in Atlanta, Georgia and owns a security training business.

ZEB ATLAS

This Body Building Greek God was quite the sight for sore eyes during his adult entertainment career from 2003-2012. Atlas (real name Andy Bick) has worked for major studios like Raging Stallion Studios and Falcon Studios. Clocking in at 6’3’, 225 pounds and slanging a perfect c—k, Atlas has starred in dozens of films.

BRENT EVERETT 

Brent Everett was one of the most popular adult stars in the early to mid 2000’s. As the years have gone on, Everett has went from twink to twunk to full on gym jock status. He’s been seen in scenes in just about every scenario and position. Working with major studios from 2003-2010, Everett went on to start his own website and has since joined the platform Just For Fans.

Cummings (real name Kevin Lengyel), has been deemed an All American Stud. He has been featured on multiple covers of Men Magazine and has worked with major adult studios. He still dabbles in sectors of the adult entertainment industry but now maintains a career as a personal trainer and health coach.

Chiseled jaw line, perfect cut c—k and equally dominant and submissive energy – Conrad (born in 1978 in Salt Lake City, Utah) was the it boy for quite a few years.

AL PARKER 

One of the OG’s of the game, Al Parker (real name Drew Okum) was born in1952 in Massachusetts. He achieved gay icon status throughout the 70’s and 80’s for his work. A lot of his work was inspired by his visit to Woodstock Music Festival in 1969 – where Parker had a lot of spontaneous sexual encounters, the most notable in the back of a van in which Parker re-enacted in several of his adult scenes. He starred in several movies for Colt studios before starting his own studio with his longtime partner Steve Taylor. After Taylor’s death (due to complications from AIDS), Parker began producing safe sex films. Parker shortly after died of complications from AIDS in San Francisco in 1992.

Standing at 6’6”, weighing 250 pounds and slangin’ 10 cut inches – Diesel Washington was bound to dominate the industry, as a Dom Top.

ROCCO STEELE (PRESENT)

Rocco Steele decided to leave corporate America to pursue a career in the gay porn industry in 2014 – and there has been no looking back since. Steele has had a meteoric rise to the Top (no pun intended), as he has amassed a huge following on social media and is one of the most sought after performers in the industry. I’m sure his 10”x7” endowment has had a little something to do with that popularity. Steele was born in 1964 in Ohio, he moved to New York City after he graduated college. After working in retail corporate for 14 years, Steele bulldozed his way into the gay porn industry. He has worked for renowned studios such as Lucas Entertainment, Raging Stallion, Tim Tales, Butch Dixon, Raw Fuck Club and Treasure Island Media. In the spring of 2015 he opened his own production studio, Rocco Steele Studios. He has since launched his own line of underwear, sex toys and even his own lube. You can see the majority of Steele’s latest adult scenes on his 4myFans and Just For Fans platform.

RHYHEIM SHABAZZ (PRESENT)

Rhyheim Shabazz stands at an impressive 6’3”, 185 pounds and boasts a 9” d—k. No wonder why he is one of the most popular adult stars and content creators in the industry today.

ARMOND RIZZO (PRESENT)

Good things come in small packages. I guess that saying can be applied to the 4’11” (mostly bottom) adult performer Armond Rizzo. Born in 1990 in Aurora, Illinois – Rizzo served in the United States Navy before entering the adult entertainment industry. He made his debut in a scene for Randy Blue in 2013 and moved onto Raging Stallion studios from there. Rizzo has won a GayVN and a Grabby award for his work and is one of the most searched entertainers on the adult site Pornhub. Rizzo continues to do professional shoots but also produces his own content for his Just For Fans.

MAX KONNOR (PRESENT)

Max Konnor was born in 1986 in Maryland but grew up in Georgia. Possessing a muscular build at only 5’6”, Konnor’s 10” d—k has made him one of the most popular performers of the last decade. He started his career in 2009 and since has become a multiple award winning performer. Konnor has worked for major studios, starring in dozens of films. He continues to work professionally and produce his content for his amateur channels. He also started a boutique management company for diverse adult performers in the adult entertainment industry.

TIM KRUGER (PRESENT)

This endowed German Ginger is one of the most successful men in the industry. Born in 1981 in Dusseldorf, Germany – Tim Kruger started his career in 2007. Early in his career, he worked for a number of studios like Lucas Entertainment and Hot House before starting his own company, Tim Tales. Kruger still acts in scenes, where he dominates bottoms with his massive 10” uncut c—k, but he mainly focuses on producing and directing. Tim Tales has employed many performers in it’s unscripted productions (a handful of them have even been mentioned on this very list). With nearly half a million Twitter followers, Kruger’s popularity continues to grow globally.

These ICONS are not ranked in any particular order, they are simply worthy of a mention on this list of notable talent. With that said, there are many names that could’ve easily been placed on this list. What gay porn entertainer(s) would you add to our list of icons?

 

20 thoughts on “The Gay Adult Film Stars That Set The Blueprint For Gay Porn Today”

  1. Sad that this list reaches a mass audience since it is so off point. There are at least 5 D-listers on here for sure. Any list that leaves off Joey Stefano and Ryan Idol is questionable, but there is one omission that is truly glaring. There is only one gay porn star so iconic that a movie was made about his life by the likes of James Franco, Christian Slater, Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone, and that would be Brent Corrigan. Leaving Corrigan off the list nullifies it by itself.

  2. Why so many black guys?

    List has no merit, its just guys the writer thinks is hot (must like black guys)…he thinks they are it, great, but they’re not the blueprint…how could they when most were born after 1995 and the “golden era” of porn was late 70s and 80s

    Al Parker was the blueprint for 80s porn.

    The list should have included
    Joey Stefano
    Rick Donovan
    Danny Brown
    Chris Lord
    Lee Ryder
    David Ashfield
    Rod Garetto
    Keith Ardent
    Ryan Idol
    Donnie Russo
    Hank Hightower
    Steve Cannon
    Chris Burns
    Les Stine
    Joe Simmons
    Jason Branch
    Chad Hunt
    Joe Magnum
    Zak Spears
    Steve Hurley
    Jordan Garrison
    Lance Gear

    Ones from more recent porn

    Recent/current
    Colby Jansen
    Colby Keller
    CJ Parker
    Steve Parker
    Girth Brooks
    Ricky Sinz
    Bo Sinn

    Each one of these guys brought something different or unique aspect to the screen.

    Lance Gear, muscle bald guy, Cole Tucker tatted daddy, Danny Brown cute guy next door, Wolf Hudson verbal and well acted, even Bo Sinn, the kink tatted and rough guy.. Chad Hunt, huge dick but not the typical porn look.

    • Whoa! Your statement/criticism of the author’s addition of several black porn actors, says a lot about you. I mean, you can’t pretend that you aren’t racist. No one wants to hear the predictable excuses or attempts to paint yourself as a victim of cancel culture or the assault against free-speech. You should probably peel back those layers of why you have an issue with ‘black men’ porn actors, and why they aren’t valid enough to list. Who are you and why is your opinion more important than someone else’s?

  3. Al Parker was my contact to get in Porn when I first moved back to California. He didn’t initially have work for me but he did send me to an Agent who did. A few years later Al Parker was the director of what I had planned to be my last porn role. This scene didn’t work for me for a variety of reasons, one being Al had decided we needed to use condoms for sucking and none of could get it up. Plus what had been myself with another pornstar had turned a 3 way. I wasn’t into it. Again none of us could maintain an erection and after 20 minutes I decided I wanted out. Let’s tear up the contract. Al Parker was great. Very understanding. One cameraman was pissed but Al Parker treated me with respect. He always did.
