Curiously there is a disproportionate percentage of men working in gay porn who identify as straight. Why would a straight man do gay porn? What motivates him to try this or make a career of it? Why is there such keen interest and debate into the sexuality and personal lives of these men?And what does it say about us, the viewer that so much of gay porn is dominated by images of straight men?Are there shades of internalized homophobia emerging? Why might we be turned off if the man on screen looks, sounds, or behaves in a way that is identifiably queer?To try answer some of these questions we interviewed men from some of the most popular and prolific studios which fetishize straight men. We spoke with gay stars about their experiences working with straight guys. And we hit the streets to test the curiosity, and opinions of the public.
