arpad-miklos-str8-sg4geOnline studio Jake Cruise Media is touting a web-exclusive vignette featuring popular gay adult performer Arpad Miklos in his first “straight for pay” sex scene. The vignette is part of the company’s fourth-anniversary celebration and is currently streaming on their pro/am website Straight Guys for Gay Eyes (SG4GE.com). “I’ve always loved to push boundaries and press buttons with my work. And when Arpad suggested he would be interested in doing one straight scene in his career, I knew we had a winning idea,” said company principal Jake Cruise. “Seeing that big, hot, masculine gay man exploring straight sex is hot enough. But the performance that he gave was one of the best we’ve ever shot in our four years.” Miklos is among gay adult’s stalwart performers. He has dozens of films under his belt stretching back to 1995. The straight-porn scene, his first condomless erotic vignette, was shot opposite blond starlet Holly Heart. “I need to assure everybody that I am gay, love cock, love hairy men,” Miklos said. “I didn’t turn straight with this scene. I enjoy sex generally and a girl could bring me pleasure as a guy can. Of course, it was very different. But fun is fun.” Cruise said SG4GE.com is straight porn designed for a gay male audience. The footage “focuses on the men’s bodies, their facial expressions, the fun they’re having while fucking a girl.” For additional details, visit JakeCruiseMedia.com. [Cross-posted to XBIZ…]

    I could watch Arpad in anything so I think if the focus was on him as JC’s story says, then I could probably get through this. Love those guns!!

  2. jesus_mary on August 10, 2009 8:02 pm

    What an ab… solutely asinine whatever the eff that was. Not funny, nor sexy. Just stupid.

  3. EdWoody on August 10, 2009 8:31 pm

    I could care less about Arpad fucking whatever he wants to fuck, I don’t give a shit.

    What I am quite upset over though is the continued double standard of using condoms for gay scenes but not for straight scenes. Corbin Fisher does it too, and it pisses me off. It’s insulting to both gay men and straight women – what, women don’t deserve the same protection? or only gay men have diseases? yeah great.

  4. MMDD on August 10, 2009 9:21 pm

    It doesn’t take a genius to figure out this was a pretty poor move, one that will likely cost Arpad a significant chunk of his gay fan base. I imagine he knows this and figures “what the hell” at this point in his career. Doing a scene with Jake Cruise turned some folks off, but this takes it to a whole new level.

    I think the most laughable part is how Jasun Mark (the director) and several other sites are going out of their way to promote this clip whilst touting how Arpad is “100% gay.” This, of course, is just promotional porn star bullshit, as a truly “100% gay” man wouldn’t have any genuine interest in fucking a chick, even if he used to during his early coming out days. I’ve come to realize that with very few exceptions, gay porn performers have more fluid sexualities and are basically all bisexual to a greater or lesser degree.

    Arpad has absolutely every right to “push boundaries” for the sake of “fun,” but there’s NO excuse in him not wearing a condom, especially since he always wears one with guys. Out of curiosity I saw the clip today, and he not only barebacks her but gets off while fucking her. He doesn’t cum inside her, but he pulls out just as he starts to cum and shoots all over her back. Sorta blows that whole “100% gay” illusion right outta the water, ya know?

    Anyway, I hope it was some good pussy and it was worth it for him, ’cause I think it’s really gonna cost him in the long run.

    I’ve said before that I have trouble understanding the whole SG4GE concept. I mean I’ve seen 80% of the ‘str8′ guys on that site doing gay porn, why would I wanna watch them do str8 porn?? But asking a ‘gay audience’ to watch a ‘gay man’ have str8 sex goes beyond even that!! It’s like booking Rush Limbaugh to be the keynote speaker at the Democratic Convention!!!

    Oh well, Jake set out to ‘shock’ us and, no doubt he’s happy he succeeded… Maybe Michael Lucas can call him out for it and they can generate some more headlines if that’s what thrills them. As for Jake, he got some of my $$ for his non-SG4GE sites, but that’s the LAST cent he’ll get from this unhappy gay camper! :(

  6. Sinu' on August 11, 2009 8:44 am

    Perhaps as he reaches middle-aged next month, he needs the money!

  7. Tre Xavier on August 11, 2009 12:29 pm

    I agree with most of the comments so far. The only one that says nothing of substance to me is from PornFan, but everyone else I am in agreement with. Especially MMDD. As often as I have tackled the issue of gay-for-pay, I’m sure you saw such a reaction from me coming.

    What’s even more sad is the fact that at Arpad’s age he insist on calling himself “100% gay”. Does he ever plan on growing up? Because making such a statement while doing a scene for SG4GE shows that he, like the gay-for-pay actors in their 20s, insist on denying being some degree bisexual.

  8. Mike on August 11, 2009 4:21 pm

    He is GROSS..wheather in Gay or Straight Movies..he’s like 50..no?lol

  9. Douglas on August 11, 2009 6:11 pm

    “Mike” said…
    “He is GROSS..wheather in Gay or Straight Movies..he’s like 50..no?lol”

    I don’t know what you are LOLing about, jerk. Think you’ll never be 50? Arpad is hotter at 50 than most men EVER are! Speaking as someone soon to be 60, I have a surprise for you: we all age, and we still want sex after 50, and YOU will never be as hot as Arpad is at 50, even on the best day of your life!!

    Now to business:
    SAY IT AIN’T SO, ARPAD!!!!!

    Look, I don’t care if a man in a porn film is gay-for-pay, or straight for pay, as long as the scene works and is hot. The problem with a lot of GFP guys is that their boredom, or worse, their repulsion, shows. However, there are some who make you believe they must be gay.

    Arpad is a special case in porn. 14 years as a supreme porn stud. Over 70 videos. Hotter at 50 than most 25 years olds, a total top and an icon of manly hairy hotness, and a gentleman, free of temperament and unearned ego. I have never tired of watching him, and have bought many, many of his DVDs, probably more than of any other stud.

    But I do not want to watch him screwing pussy. Ew. Why would I want to watch a scene where I have to avert my gaze from part of the screen to avoid revulsion, when I have dozens of scenes of him screwing hot (and sometimes less-than-hot) men?

    But to say, as MMDD does, that this “will likely cost Arpad a significant chunk of his gay fan base,” is just silly and delusional. My attraction to Arpad will not be sullied just because he had to wash the stench of a woman off of his beloved dick, as long as I don’t have to watch that scene.

    My guess? To get his come shot, they had to have a very hairy naked man just off camera for Arpad to admire, just as he has had hairy men pose where he could see them to get him to shoot for the cameras in gay porn (as seen in the delightful Mr. Pam documentary “Exposed”). Note that the woman in the photo is up doggie style, where Arpad doesn’t have to see her gruesome snatch and her hairless tits, but can look at his preferred target, butt.

    Tempest in a teapot. Arpad can screw whoever he wants. I’ll still love him.

    (And announcing that a man being able to perform sexually with a woman means “He’s not gay” or “not 100% gay” requires a very naive and shallow understanding of the mystery that is sexual orientation. Honey, read your Freud. We’re all bisexual to varying degrees, and I speak as a man who hasn’t screwed a woman in 30 years.)

  10. MMDD on August 11, 2009 7:26 pm

    To Tre:

    I appreciate your comment. Just to clarify, from what I understand Arpad is not the one who called himself “100% gay.” It’s sites and blogs that are marketing this video, including the sg4ge site itself, that are saying that. Of course, the whole concept is pretty fucked up anyway. Why go to “Straight Guys for Gay Eyes” to see a “100% gay” man in the first place? Unless he actually IS straight but has only marketed himself as gay all these years. As I said, it’s pretty fucked up and confusing; and confusion isn’t very erotic.

    The other thing being marketed is that Holly (the girl he fucks) wasn’t told he was gay before the shoot. Obviously they both agreed to do the scene without condoms beforehand, but I have to wonder if she might have thought differently had she known he was gay and had been having sex with men for years. Though statistically speaking raw vaginal sex isn’t as risky as raw ass sex, Arpad is uncut, which means the risk of transmission is higher than it would be if he were cut.

    To Douglas:

    I respect your opinions, and you make some very good points. I wholeheartedly agree with you that physically speaking Arpad is one of the hottest guys ever in porn. I would much rather see someone his age, handsome, fantastic shape, hairy, and (the cherry on top of the sundae for me) uncut than some pre-pubescent-looking, hairless twink who barely looks like he’s out of high school. I think many men get hotter with age, and Arpad is a perfect example of that.

    As for me being delusional about this affecting his fan base, facts are facts: This same “straight for pay” scenario significantly damaged Blake Riley’s career. Whereas you may be able to put Arpad’s pussy-soaked adventure out of your mind, other viewers won’t be able to do the same. I’m no prophet, but history is usually a very reliable source.

    Oh, and regardless of what Freud said, I don’t subscribe to the “everyone’s really bisexual” way of thinking, porn performers aside. Believe it or not, I’m actually one of those “100% gays” we’re talking about. And I speak as a man who has NEVER screwed a woman–and never will either.

  11. Alan on August 11, 2009 8:55 pm

    Ah Douglas, with all due respect to your valiant defense of Arpad’s ‘looks’, I agree with much of what your say (his actions, however, are another matter). But you might want to rethink the phrase: “Arpad is hotter at 50 than most men EVER are!” or at hang on to it for another decade before using it again…

    That’s because IMDB lists Arpad’s DOB as 9/11/67, which makes him 40 – not 50! ;)

  12. Douglas on August 12, 2009 8:08 am

    Well it’s nice to know that something wonderful once happened on 9-11!

    Between one poster saying Arpad was about to hit middle-age (“Middle-age” begins at 41? I view 40 as the prime of life, not middle-age) and another asking if he was 50, I thought he was hitting 50.

    And the IMDb can be very unreliable. It took me two years to convince them that I was not two different people, and get the twin listings for myself combined into one.

    And of course, Arpad being 40 only makes those going “Ew! He’s so old!” even bigger douches!

    MMDD, we agree about hot men versus boring twinks. And oh how I loathe “manscaping.” When I see someone whose furry tits have inspired lustful thoughts in me suddenly show up “smooth,” I get furious at them for defacing their beauty. This is not to say I have anything against NATURALLY smooth men. I had a lover for 8 years who hadn’t a strand of hair between his scalp and his pubes. Since he was a great guy, a hung, horny, total top, and looked like the child of Richard Gere and Dean Phoenix, I overlooked his sadly hairless physique.

    I am indifferent either way as to cut or uncut, but speaking as an uncut man myself, I have learned to steer clear of guys who are “into” foreskin. They inevitably want to tug on it, pull it, stretch it, and try to shove the head of their dicks into it – docking. I HATE all of that crap! Leave it alone! That HURTS, you dips!! There’s nothing like pulling or stretching on my foreskin to get me to suddenly remember I have to be somewhere else RIGHT NOW. And if, after I’ve said, “Don’t DO that!” they did it again anyway, I have indeed kicked them out.

    But in theory, I am in favor of not mutilating dicks. It’s a barabaic act of child mutilation. I can’t think why it isn’t illegal. And of course, the cockhead that has lived protected by its foreskin is vastly more sensitive than that of uncut dicks, delivering its owner more intense pleasure. It was this fact alone that motivated my former best friend to try and sue his parents for having his dick mutilated as an infant. He couldn’t get past the lesser level of pleasure it condemned him to. He resented them for it to the day he died.

    But I can not believe that there is any significant percentage of gay porn viewers who get turned off when they know a guy they’re watching in a gay porn video has had sex with a woman at sometime or another. Last time I notced (a couple weeks ago) Blake Riley’s career was doing just fine. And when I was young, I enjoyed seducing married men, for the sexual victory over their women. (I outgrew this behavior) How could I revel in his preferring my ass to pussy if he’s never had pussy?

    And that you don’t accept the fact that there’s really no such thing as 100% gay doesn’t make it untrue. The popes told Galleleo he was wrong, but it was they who were wrong.

    And taking the position that a person who is only, let’s say 90% gay, ISN’T GAY, well that’s ridiculous, and yes, delusional. If you really can’t enjoy the sexual performance of a performer who isn’t as rigid about whom he fucks as you are, that’s a lack in you, not them. Did you quiz every lover you’ve ever had as to whether they had ever had sex with a woman? And if they had, did you kick them out of bed, to take their pussy-defiled dicks away? I find this attitude peculiar at best, egocentric at worst. “Anyone who is less gay than I am isn’t really gay” is an intolerant, egotistical, absurd position. The world isn’t your mirror.

    The truest thing about sexuality I ever heard was that there are as many different sexual preferences as there are people alive. Everyone’s place on the Kinsey scale is unique to them.

  13. Douglas on August 12, 2009 8:15 am

    My sentence “the cockhead that has lived protected by its foreskin is vastly more sensitive than that of uncut dicks,” should of course read “the cockhead that has lived protected by its foreskin is vastly more sensitive than that of cut dicks.”

  14. rabbit on the moon on August 12, 2009 10:58 am

    I think some people are being too hard on Arpad. From the “50 year old” remark to the “He needs grow up” comment coming from someone who’s immature enough to start multiple online arguments is ludicrous. But I’m not going to debate the subject because I don’t have time for that. I’ll just say that I’ve been a fan of Arpad Miklos for years. This scene has not changed my opinion of him. And anyone who no longer wants to support him over something like this probably weren’t true fans to begin with.

  15. Neil-Anblomi on August 12, 2009 12:39 pm

    I have never been a fan of Fake Cruise.
    Why, oh why did Arpad want to appear on his site?
    If he feels his age is showing. I would have preferred he chose DILF (Dads I like to Fuck)

    My question to Arpad is, Why didn’t he wear condoms when putting it in the ?(ewe)

  16. alanalt on August 12, 2009 2:52 pm

    rabbit, if your definition of a ‘true fan’ is someone who has to fully support/accept every single action of their object of affection without question, then I pity all ‘true fans’ for being mind-wiped zombies… ;) Sure, Arpad has every right to f*ck a gal on camera for money, other people have every right to dislike him for doing that and express their dislike/anger. Freedom for one, freedom for all…

    As for Arpad, I confess I’ve never been a fan (and it’s NOT an age thing, I really like the look of newly-signed Titan model – David Anthony, 41; I also really liked Colton Ford who’s also similarly built to Arpad). I’m not going to apologize for not liking Arpad, because it’s nowhere written that I have to like every model or even every gay model in gay porn land. What I object to is the whole CONCEPT of paying a ‘gay’ guy to have str8 sex and then MARKETING it to a ‘gay audience’. In other words, it’s the idea I find rather bizarre (and quite frankly, revolting) and I’d be unhappy with ANY model who chose to participate in it and be equally inclined to be less supportive of their future work as a consequence. And that’s MY right as a ‘picky’ consumer! ;)

    PS – I’ve just noticed another ‘Alan’ has now started commenting on GPT, so I’m changing my moniker to alanalt.

  17. Douglas on August 12, 2009 5:48 pm

    Rabbit on the moon, I must be on that moon with you (hopefully Arpad’s hairy moon), because I agree with every word you posted.

    Alanalt, that’s an interesting rhetorical ploy. You defined what someone else said to mean what you decided it means (“if your definition of a ‘true fan’ is someone who has to…”), and then refute your own definition. You can always win an argument when you’re having it with yourself.

    But by then stating “As for Arpad, I confess I’ve never been a fan” and then going on to get all snitty about Arpad having sex you don’t approve of merely PROVED yourself to be exactly what Rabbit was talking about, thus confirming, not refuting, what he wrote. You lost an argument with yourself.

  18. MMDD on August 12, 2009 8:01 pm

    To Douglas:

    First of all, good grief…and I thought I was long winded! A suggestion: Start drinking decaf.

    Secondly, you’re obviously behind on the times re: Blake Riley. He retired from the biz in July, stating he was “over the whole porn thing” or something to that effect. The straight for pay controversy that erupted last year did affect his career. Before it happened, he was extremely popular; afterward, his popularity significantly dropped. Do some research and you’ll see what I’m saying is true. I don’t know anything about videos sales or anything like that, but his Web popularity pretty much crashed and burned.

    Thirdly, as for the whole 100% thing, you’ve put a WHOLE lot of words in my mouth that I never said. Stop doing that, please. :-) I’m not going to argue back and forth with you about whether there are or aren’t 100% gay men in the world because we could do that till doomsday, but my point was that this is the wording they’re using in the promotion of this video. I never said a gay man couldn’t perform with a woman; what I said was that if he truly were “100% gay” (which I interpret as meaning no sexual interest in women at all), then he wouldn’t have expressed any interest in doing it in the first place. If you go by Arpad’s own account, he fucked women for at least 12 years of his life (even after he started making gay porn), plus he watches straight porn almost exclusively in his private life to get off. And according to Fleshbot, there was no “hairy man” or gay porn off camera during the shoot. He didn’t need didn’t need any visual aid whatsoever to get hard and get off.

    As an aside, tell me, since you don’t believe in the 100% thing, then please describe for me the kind of woman you’d like to fuck. Considering the terms you’ve used to describe female parts in this thread, which personally I find quite offensive and bigoted, you can’t expect me to believe that there’s even a small part of you (or percentage, if we’re going to talk numbers) that genuinely wants to dip your stick into some labia.

    Fourthly, you’re damn right I would want to know the sexual history of anyone I’m about to sleep with.

    And lastly, I’m one of those fellows who is very much “into” foreskin. However, I have an uncut lover of over 14 years, and I never treat his cock or foreskin the way you’ve described. I’ve learned over the years exactly how to pleasure him, and considering the thousands of orgasms he’s experienced thanks to my skills, I’d say I’m pretty damn good at handling an uncut cock. ;-)

  19. Tre Xavier on August 12, 2009 10:01 pm

    Rabbit,

    Arpad does need to grow up, and I stand behind that statement. And the “multiple arguments that I start online”, as you put it are about matters that things like yourself are either too ignorant and such cowards over facing that you turn a blind eye to them. I bring REAL matters to the surface. I’ve seen your blog and it’s mostly fluff, and I respect how fluff has it’s place. If yourself had the maturity that you claim I lack, then you would respect my place in the blogsphere as I respect yours. Instead, you seem to have always been bothered by something about me. My degree of depth, perhaps?. Well, when you mentally mature and are ready to face the real world, where we must face bad messages being sent out, then try insulting the many stands I take.

  20. alanalt on August 13, 2009 12:59 am

    Douglas,

    First, it wasn’t my intention to ‘argue’ with anyone, I was just offering a couple of observations/opinions. If you’re unhappy with them, that’s YOUR problem, not mine. Second, it IS possible to make 2 separate points in the same post you know.

    My first comment was a observation on rabbit’s apparent expectation that ‘true fans’ of Arpad should be expected to ‘support’ him whatever he does… Now maybe rabbit meant something completely different, but that’s how I read his assertion and I chose to express a different view.

    The 2nd (and separate) point was why ‘I’ objected to the scene and how it was irrelevant WHO the performer was and whether I am a ‘fan’ (by rabbit’s or any other definition) of said performer’s or not.

    Now if I was really trying to ‘argue’ with you, I’d be trying to explain why MY position is somehow ‘superior’ or ‘preferable’ to yours. I’m NOT saying that. I’m only saying that my position works for me and it’s every bit as ‘valid’ a position as yours is for you!

  21. rabbit on the moon on August 13, 2009 6:02 am

    alanalt, if you didn’t understand what I meant in my original comment, you should’ve asked instead of putting words in my mouth and making assumptions. I never said that Arpad’s true fans had to agree with every little thing he does. I just don’t think his real fans would turn their backs on him just because he did something that didn’t affect them. If someone wants to withdraw their support and stop purchasing his movies just because he fucked a woman on camera, then so be it. I happen to think that’s a stupid reason for disliking someone, but that’s their choice. The man is human just like the rest of us. He’s not perfect and he’s going to make mistakes just like anyone else (not that I think this new video of his is a mistake). Arpad’s decision to do this kind of scene is his business and I think it’s sad how people are criticizing him for doing what he wants with his life. He’s not hurting anyone so I don’t see the big deal. All he did was explore another side of his sexuality and happened to get paid for it. Heterosexual females explore their sexuality all the time in straight porn when they do lesbian scenes. But does anyone ever condemn them for it? No. So why is it a betrayal when a gay man does it? That’s bullshit.

  22. rabbit on the moon on August 13, 2009 6:09 am

    Tre, the reason I’m bothered by you is because you are a bully. You have proven yourself to be a rude, nasty, hateful, and obnoxious person. God forbid anyone express an opinion different from yours. They are automatically an idiot, an asshole, or someone who deserves to die. I’ve witnessed you say those things to people, which in my opinion is childlike behavior. That’s why you of all people are in no position to advise others on needing to grow up since you have some growing of your own to do. When you start acting like a civilized adult who doesn’t go around demeaning another person’s character just because they don’t share your point of view, that’s when I’ll start respecting what you have to say. Since we’re on the subject of respect, you claimed to have shown it to me. Either you’re full of shit or have a warped sense of what that word means. Not only have you referred to me as being a coward who’s ignorant, you also made fun of my blog, and don’t think I didn’t spot that little remark you made about me on your site in the past. You have never been respectful towards me. So don’t piss on my head and tell me it’s raining. And let’s get one thing straight. I don’t give a damn what you think about my blog because I didn’t create it to impress you or cater to your interests. I made it for my own enjoyment and to market my art. Go ahead make fun of my site all you want. And while you’re at it, you can also make fun of the fact that I’m earning money from it as well. You know what, I am officially done with you. You are an unreasonable human being and I’m tired of dealing with you. Finish this argument by yourself because I’m gone.

  23. T-Bird on August 13, 2009 9:11 am

    Wow, nothing sparks debate like porn. I am not a fan of Arpad, has nothing to do with his age, who he works for etc just not my preference.
    I will say that I am no longer surprised at what Jake Cruise puts up on his site. From paying some of the hottest men in porn to having sex with you to this…..

  24. MMDD on August 13, 2009 11:15 am

    Since Jasun Mark directed this and is ranting on his own blog about why he doesn’t understand why so many folks are making a fuss over this, I’m going to quote something he said last year back when the whole Blake Riley/straight for pay controversy was raging:

    “I think he’s maybe learned the hard way that your fans can feel betrayed if you change your public image even if to just promote a single movie. With so many gay porn stars being (or at least claiming to be) straight, the honest gay ones are going to have some die-hard fans who are happy to have a gay one who’s actually gay. If Madonna suddenly supported Prop 8, she’d also feel the wrath of her fans…. Anyone in the industry knows that fans can take porn VERY seriously and I’ll defend them on that. Fans get VERY weird about their porn and they’re allowed to. They’re the ones buying it, paying for it and supporting the careers of their favorite performers. Just like how Moby’s fans revolted when he did a punk rock album or Britney’s fans would revolt if she did a country album, fans of Blake Riley are allowed to get turned off when he does a movie that turns them off.”

    Spoken by the director of this film himself on December 31, 2008, on the justusboys site. The same principle applies here.

  25. EdWoody on August 13, 2009 1:12 pm

    Just to be clear, I never “went off” Blake Riley for doing bi porn, because I have met him personally on more than one occasion and have found him to be a delightful, sweethearted person, as well as one of the most beautiful men to do porn in a decade, and that matters more to me than what he chooses to fuck.

    Conversely, I was never “on” Arpad to go off him, so that’s why I don’t give a shit either way there.

    My only complaint, as I said before, is the condom issue. Blake used them, Arpad didn’t. Blake continues to get my love for that.

  26. john on August 13, 2009 5:38 pm

    You people are crazy. A man has sex with a woman and you’re freaking out. He’s a porn star. He is paid to have sex. Its what he does. This changes absolutely nothing. Porn is what it is…fun. Its not goign to hcange the world. Its not politics.
    If he wants to do it, its no sweat off your brow. Don’t want to watch it? ok. no problem you don’t have to. But all this insulting and rabble rousing is so ridiculous. Most of you probably don’t pay any attention to what’s going on in the world but yet will get upset over a gay man poking a puss puss

  27. Jazzy Groove on August 13, 2009 8:14 pm

    Just a correction for ronnie’s comment above: Jake Cruise uses the exact same testing for his bareback scenes, using the same non-profit (AIM) that the straight porn studios use for their bareback scenes. When both performers are HIV+, they also don’t use condoms if they don’t want.

    The gay community has been promoting the false idea that one can have as many sexual partners as one wants with a condom and this is safe sex. Or that condoms alone are safer than without.

    The truth is, the kind of testing AIM uses significantly decreases the risk factor.

    Also, proponents of condoms in gay and bi and straight porn — most notably Chi Chi La Rue — have hired performers who have or acquire AIDS and work with HIV- performers.

    This isn’t discussed at all in the industry. But just do a search of this blog for AIDS and you’ll find a number of performers who’ve died from AIDS who were working within 2 years of their death.

    Arpad did a bareback scene with a woman who was tested — or they are both HIV+ already.

    What’s different about his working for Jake Cruise is that Cruise gives his performers the option to go without condoms if the scene partners match HIV status — and both partners know the other person’s HIV status.

    So let’s not jump to the conclusion that Miklos thinks it’s fine to bareback a woman but not a man; maybe he would bareback men as well but doesn’t have the option in the gay porn studio system.

  28. ronnie on August 13, 2009 10:15 pm

    It’s so funny to me how crazy people get about porn performers and what videos they do. They freak out over “Gay for pay” because they just think the guys are not being true to themselves when in fact the opposite is true. And now a somewhat popular gay performer has done a straight scene and all their fantasies have disappeared because he decided to experience sex with (gasp!) a female. There have been plenty of gay men (and I know many) who have had sex with women, but they identifiy themselves as gay because they only want a relationship with a man. Most don’t mention these experiences to other gay friends because they have to defend why they “went to the fish store”. A performer only has to be true to one person and one person only. Unless they are trying to date you, (which they aren’t), then why do you care? After all, the biggest gay porn star, (Jeff Stryker), was gay for pay and did lots of straight and bi-porn and it didn’t effect his career. Porn is fantasy. If you can’t get past this, there’s plenty of other porn guys to beat off to.

    And as for the condom issue, here’s the difference between how gay and straight porn companies deal with it. In straight porn, everyone who works with a major company has to be tested. There is a company that works with the adult industry regarding this. They test negative and they do their scenes without condoms. That is how most operate. There was just an uproar recently in LA when it was announced that someone tested HIV+. For major gay porn companies, since condoms are used, testing is not required before a scene. Some may ask the questions and ask for results, but it is not always the case. As for internet sleazoids like Jake Cruise, they just work without condoms “because they think it’s hotter,” and don’t care about putting the performers at risk.

    “MMDD said
    To Douglas:
    First of all, good grief…and I thought I was long winded! A suggestion: Start drinking decaf.”

    I never touch coffee of any kind. Can’t stand the taste, can’t bear the stench.

    “I don’t know anything about videos sales or anything like that, but his Web popularity pretty much crashed and burned.”

    So you only know half of what you’re talking about. I only watch DVD porn, as I like it on the big screen, not on my computer.

    “please describe for me the kind of woman you’d like to fuck.”

    One who looks exactly like Arpad.

    However, the women I had sex with back in my checkered youth (I did both men and women, often at the same time, until age 28, then stopped having sex with women forever) tended to be a bit heavy, but their looks were basically unimportant. I wasn’t ever going to find them sexually attractive. So I was with women I found interesting out of bed, all strong-minded, highly intelligent women who could argue with me at my own level, equals. Couldn’t bear submissive women.

    But seven months ago I celebrated the 30th anniversary of the last time I ever fucked a woman. Prior to that, I had had bisexual affairs with about 15 or 20 women, but I was always having sex with men also.

    “Considering the terms you’ve used to describe female parts in this thread, which personally I find quite offensive and bigoted…”

    Well I’m not going to censor myself to please you, especially on site devoted to gay porn. If you can’t take a frank, un-PC discussion, bugger off. I am still close friends with several of the women I had affairs with back in the 70s and 80s, so they haven’t found me bigoted against women. But then, they’ve only known me for over three decades, so they are hardly the expert on my attitudes that you are.

    “Fourthly, you’re damn right I would want to know the sexual history of anyone I’m about to sleep with.”

    How nosy. For me, the only factors have always been “Do I want to?” and “Does he want to?” If the answer to both is “yes,” it’s on. Their past is none of my business, though I’ll listen to what they want to share. And not only have I never turned a man down because he also had had sex with women, but as indicated earlier, it was, in fact, an inducement in my youth.

    I’m glad you’re not a foreskin abuser.

    alanalt said,
    “Douglas,
    First, it wasn’t my intention to ‘argue’ with anyone,”

    Then why did you? Rabbit clearly took your comment exactly the same way I did. You put your own meaning onto his words, and then refuted yourself. And then proved yoruself to be exactly what he was talking about, confirming his point. Yes, you can make two seperate points in the smae comment. I’m makeing dozens here, but they shouldn’t contradict each other.

    As a BIG fan of Arpad myself, that doesn’t mean I enjoy everything he does. It means I REALLY ENJOY a lot of what he does, and what I don’t care for, I ignore. I’m not tossing out my Arpad DVDs because he fucked a woman on-or-off camera.

    Someone said (but MMDD posted it and clearly appears to agree with it):
    “If Madonna suddenly supported Prop 8, she’d also feel the wrath of her fans”

    Equating someone deciding to support stripping millions of people of their civil rights with someone doing a straight porn scene when he’s known for gay porn is INSANE!!!!!!!!!!! INSANE!!!!!!!!! DERANGED!!!!!!!! Get a grip. Deciding to support a bigoted movement to strip us of our right to marry is vastly different from a porn star taking some bucks to fuck some pussy. If Cher suddenly started wearing swastikas and began gassing all the Jews she could find, she’d lose hers fanbase also. But if she just decided to have sex with a woman, who would care, besides Chaz, that is? Idiotic argument.

    “John’s” comment “You people are crazy. A man has sex with a woman and you’re freaking out. He’s a porn star. He is paid to have sex. Its what he does. This changes absolutely nothing,” is utterly and competely sane and sensible.

  31. MMDD on August 14, 2009 6:40 am

    Douglas,

    The Madonna and Proposition 8 comment was a quote from the director of this film. Let’s make that clear: HE was the one who made the comparison, not me. I was just quoting him.

  32. donoban on August 14, 2009 2:59 pm

    Is stupid talk any more about Arpad Miklos! I think he was never gay. All star porn use his fans to get money. We are stupid to buy his videos.

    In my opinion, it was really stupid to see Arpad to fuck a girl. Arpad was a special case, but we could understand Arpad lies about his sexuality.

    Anyway it’s really stupid his video fucking a girl. I’m not going to buy another video about him.

    If I wanted to see a video straight, exist a lot of men really hot that I haven’t seen to have sex with men.

  33. donoban on August 14, 2009 3:04 pm

    I hope he got a lot of money for this video and he enjoyed a lot her chick, because he won’t have all his fans.

    I’m not his fan any more.

  34. Douglas on August 14, 2009 3:32 pm

    “MMDD on August 14, 2009 6:40 am Douglas,

    I believe I was clear that you were quoting someone else rather than making the statement yourself. But, as you quoted it in support of your position, and did not disavow its idiocy, I have to assume you put it up to agree with. It’s ludicrous in any event.

    “donoban on August 14, 2009 2:59 pm Is stupid talk any more about Arpad Miklos! I think he was never gay. All star porn use his fans to get money. We are stupid to buy his videos.”

    I’m assuming English is not your first language. Congratulations. I couldn’t make a comment, even as grammatically scrambled a one as yours, in a language other than my first at all, so props for expanding your language knowledge to a point certainly greater than my own.

    That said, if what is on a video gets you off, why is it “stupid” to buy it simply because he made another video that doesn’t get you off? Your “logic” escapes me?

    And isn’t it insane how, after over 75 gay videos, after having shot scenes of his having sex with men that number in the TRIPLE digits, he makes ONE scene with a woman, and suddenly “I think he was never gay.” Hello?

    In any event, whether he is gay or straight is IRRELEVANT to whether his gay videos are hot to any given viewer or not. That’s like “What? Anthony Perkins was NOT an actual murderer??? I’m burning my DVD of PSYCHO! I’ll never watch a Perkins movie again!!!!”

    And anyway, Arpad IS gay.

    Why it would be like me assuming you’re a total idiot simply because of this one crazy, nonsensical posting. You’ll break your legs jumping to unsupported conclusions like that.

  35. Douglas on August 14, 2009 3:58 pm

    MMDD, I forced myself to reread your posting quoting Jasum Mark. Your closing sentence referring to his Madonna quote was “The same principle applies here.”

    So you DID endorse the idiotic, over-the-top,deranged Madonna comment.

  36. Douglas on August 14, 2009 4:03 pm

    I see that I wrote “I am still close friends with several of the women I had affairs with back in the 70s and 80s,” in an earlier posting. That should, of course, have read “back in the 60s and 70s.” No snatch did I touch in the 80s, 90s and 00s.

  37. donoban on August 14, 2009 4:19 pm

    !Hi Douglas on August 14, 2009 3:32 pm!

    Yeah! English isn’t my first language, but I try to give an opinion because I bought a lot of videos of Arpad!

    First I am not an idiot. Alone I say a point of view and I think you and other guys can talk good or bad of his video. If for you the video was really good, PERFECT! for me not.

    For my Arpad Miklos’s case was special because he have done a lot of gay videos. Now, when I see the video fucking a girl, he breaks this quality.

    If you like to see Arpad fucking a girl, enjoy it.

    An example of anybody who still remains and you couldn’t find bisexual or heterosexual videos is about MARK WILLIAMS.

    Ok. I’m not talking any more about him. It’s irrelevant.

  38. Jeremy on August 14, 2009 4:25 pm

    I agree with Donoban, we all can give an opinion.

    I will not buy this video and will not see any more videos of him. Shit!

  39. MMDD on August 14, 2009 4:34 pm

    Douglas,

    The point I was making by quoting Jasun Mark was that he affirmed the fact that porn viewers/consumers have the right to get turned off and offended when a performer they admire and have supported does something out of character. I find it odd that the director of this film would make such a statement about another straight for pay performer in another straight for pay production yet scratches his head in wonder as to why people are so turned off and offended by this particular film, when the same principle clearly applies. That was my point. But of course, you would prefer to pick out only one line and go off into the rant zone instead of looking at the bigger picture.

    This is my last correspondence with you. Go back and forth with someone else.

  40. cutlass on August 15, 2009 9:59 am

    So now are we promoting the idea that sexuality is a choice?

  41. Jasun Mark on August 15, 2009 11:37 am

    Erg. I really need to learn to use more of those smiley things.

    Yes, the comparison of Madonna supporting prop 8 to Blake Riley was absurd. That was kinda my point, I think. Most of the reaction is absurd. Fans are allowed to react to ANYTHING that an artist does in any way. But fans don’t own their idols. The job of an artist or performer is to push their boundaries, challenge themselves, entertain their audience and create their work.

    Arpad did an amazing job in this scene. He really did. But you don’t have to like it any more than you have to like Moby’s punk rock album.

    That being said, although I do kinda “get” where the reaction comes from and I may have even really hated that silly disco album that Liza with a Z put out in the 80s, I still think that much of the posts I’ve seen on the subject have been so over the top (you guys don’t really want me dead, do you? do you really think I hate gay people?) that yes… I’m still scratching my head about it.

    Gay men, just like straight men, should be allowed to do whatever they want. If a gay porn star wants to do one straight movie in his career… he should be allowed to do it. Does that mean he’s no longer gay? I don’t personally think so. I also think that Arpad’s looking amazing and he’s a great performer that I hope to work with again.

  42. MMDD on August 15, 2009 6:48 pm

    Jasun,

    I’m a little confused. On gaypornblog there’s a Jasun Mark posting who says he’s hurt that none of this hatred has been directed toward him and is “feeling left out.” You can’t possibly be the same person if you’re reading posts saying that people want you dead and think that you hate gay people.

    For what it’s worth, although some of the posts on various sites have been quite nasty, I haven’t seen anything even that extreme. (Of course, maybe I’m missing a few here and there.)

    You’re totally correct about performers being free to do anything they want to do and the fact that fans don’t own them. But consider this: These guys wouldn’t have a career in the first place to exercise such freedom if they didn’t have fans supporting their work. And the same gay porn viewers who get to hear Arpad talk about about how he sought out and enjoyed doing a straight scene with a woman also get to hear countless g4p performers reinforce their own heterosexuality and how they really do NOT enjoy having sex with men and are only doing it for the money. Maybe it’s too much to ask, but given that environment, it would be nice if the few genuine gay fellows in the biz would stay true to their natural orientation. Challenging yourself is a good thing, but isn’t it possible to push your boundaries while also staying true to yourself?

  43. Jasun Mark on August 16, 2009 1:25 pm

    So… should Heath Ledger not done Brokeback Mountain since he’s not gay? Or should TR Knight have refused to do the straight character on um… whatever show he was on? The thing with the Doctors?

    Or is it just porn performers who have to stay within the lines?

  44. MMDD on August 16, 2009 2:29 pm

    So as part of their performances, I guess Heath really did fuck Jake and T.R. really fucked his girlfriend. Is that the parallel you’re trying to make?

    On second thought, don’t even bother answering, Jasun. I’m not going to waste any more time arguing with someone who ignores the vast majority of my points anyway.

  45. Douglas on August 16, 2009 3:33 pm

    “donoban on August 14, 2009 4:19 pm !
    Hi Douglas
    If you like to see Arpad fucking a girl, enjoy it.”

    I would not enjoy seeing Arpad fucking a girl, which is why I haven’t bothered to see the clip in question. My point was: I do not understand nor consider rational the idea that, because he made that scene, because it exists, that that would be a “reason” for suddenly finding his HUNDREDS of gay sex scenes no longer watchable, nor any he might make in the future. I see that as an extreme, somewhat irrational response that makes zero sense.

    “Yeah! English isn’t my first language, but I try to give an opinion because I bought a lot of videos of Arpad!”

    I got that. I believe I congratulated you on it, as making a comment of any kind in another language is something I would not be able to do. Kudos.

    “First I am not an idiot.”

    And what I said was that I would be wrong to consider you an idiot for taking this one ridiculous position. That isn’t calling you an idiot. It’s calling your point idiotic. I stand by that.

    “MMDD on August 14, 2009 4:34 pm Douglas,
    This is my last correspondence with you. Go back and forth with someone else.”

    “MMDD on August 16, 2009 2:29 pm
    On second thought, don’t even bother answering, Jasun. I’m not going to waste any more time arguing with someone who ignores the vast majority of my points anyway.”

    Oh, so you think YOU get to shut off the debate, and claim last word? Nope.

    “MMDD on August 14, 2009 4:34 pm Douglas,
    The point I was making by quoting Jasun Mark was that he affirmed the fact that porn viewers/consumers have the right to get turned off and offended when a performer they admire and have supported does something out of character.”

    I never said anyone didn’t have that right. I merely said that to have that reaction to this event is idiotic. Everyone has the right to behave like a fool.

    “cutlass on August 15, 2009 9:59 am So now are we promoting the idea that sexuality is a choice?”

    I don’t see anyone here promoting that exploded idea. We are discussing how a person chooses to use their sexuality, and whether someone else getting their panties in a twist about who a person who isn’t them uses their sexuality is a bright thing to do or a stupid thing to do. (I lean to the latter position.) And MMDD and I were also disagreeing about the rigidity of sexual preference boundaries.

    “Jasun Mark on August 15, 2009 11:37 am
    Most of the reaction is absurd. Fans are allowed to react to ANYTHING that an artist does in any way. But fans don’t own their idols. The job of an artist or performer is to push their boundaries, challenge themselves, entertain their audience and create their work.”

    I gotta agree with that.

    “That being said, although I do kinda ‘get’ where the reaction comes from and I may have even really hated that silly disco album that Liza with a Z put out in the 80s,”

    I didn’t buy Liza’s disco album, but the fact that she made one didn’t make me throw out my copies of CABARET or LIZA WITH A Z.” Ethel Merman made a dreadful disco album also, which some friend gave me as a joke. It didn’t make me toss my DVD of IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD into the trash.

    50 years ago, my dad was so disgusted by Liz Taylor’s sex life, as though it was any of his business, that he refused ever again to see any movie she was in. Consequently, after he died, when my mother, who didn’t go to movies aithout dad, saw CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, she asked me “Is Liz Taylor always that good an actress?” (Yes, Mother) It was news to her, because Dad’s “Liz Taylor is the Whore of Babylon” position had prevented her from learning that she could act. Dad had the right to react that way, but it was a damn stupid thing for him to have done. Ironically, nowadays, Liz’s tireless AIDS work makes her a saint in my eyes.

    Just because an artist (not that I consider porn stars to be artists, nor porn to be art, though really fine porn CAN be art, and art can contain porn, and some porn stars have the potential to be artists) makes a work I don’t care for, it doesn’t make me dislike their other work that I already liked, nor will it effect my reaction to their future works. I didn’t stop reading Stephen King just because he wrote CUJO, CHRISTINE, and THE GIRL WHO LOVED TOM GORDON.

    Whereas, for an artist to take a POLITICAL position I find revolting CAN turn me off to them, and make my relations with their previous work problematic. MIDNIGHT COWBOY remains a great film, despite Jon Voight’s recent descent into Republican madness. GREED remains a great movie, even though Emil Jannings later became a Nazi. King Vidor remains a genius, despite having made THE FOUNTAINHEAD (But Ayn Rand remains forever a delusional asshole) I’m stuck still enjoying FRASIER despite Kelsey Grammar giving money to the Republican Party. I console myself that openly-gay David Hyde Pierce balances him. But when Grammar did a series two years ago with Republican nutjob Patricia Heaton, it was too many Republicans for me to stomach, despite my love of Fred Willard, who was also on that short-lived bomb.

    But I do not see Arpad Miklos making a straight sex scene as a political statement, and if it is one, then it’s not one I am offended by. That said, I’m not going to watch it. Ew.

  46. Douglas on August 16, 2009 3:41 pm

    A further point:

    ““MMDD on August 14, 2009 4:34 pm Douglas,
    when a performer they admire and have supported does something out of character.”

    If a performer does something, it is not “out of character;” it means that their actual character is larger and has more facets than the limited “character” you have assigned them in your mind. You’re being critical of Arpad for not being exactly your fantasy of him, something he not only has no duty to do, but which is impossible for him to do, since he is unacquainted with your fantasy of him. Arpad isn’t a fictional person living in your head. He’s a real human being, and it isn’t possible for a human to behave out of character. Anytime you think they have, it just means their character is larger than you imagined.

  47. Anon on August 16, 2009 8:50 pm

    Ok JC this is def a great time to post a hot pic of Ben Bradley or someone to help us get past this constant arguing back and forth and pasting here and there.

  48. Rob Nealson on September 7, 2009 1:44 pm

    Maybe Arpad could make things well again with Gays by bottoming.

  49. c.r.melcher on December 29, 2009 1:59 pm

    The man in my life & I are both bisexual and have been for years. WE think Arpad is not only a great actor and fantastic businessman,
    but the fact that he wanted to try something new, just to see if he could in order to satisfy his own curiosity about himself and his own psyche, is wonderful. Anything that helps a person learn about himself and enable him to expand his horizons (as well as satisfy himself about himself) is to be lauded. Arpad,if you read this – you’ve gone for the Gold – got for the Platinum in all you do. One straight movie doesn’t make you straight or any less wonderful than you are.

    We love you, Carol & Ed

  50. Douglas on August 30, 2011 3:33 pm

    Well, it’s two years later, but rereading this thread today I am struck by Rob Nealson’s odd comment: “Maybe Arpad could make things well again with Gays by bottoming.”

    Where to start?

    1. Arpad hasn’t made things “wrong” with the gay community, unless having consensual sex with a woman is not allowed, and lots and lots and lots of gay men have had sex with women for one reason or another at some time or another. If you eliminate all but “Gold-Star Gays” (Men who have ONLY had sex with other men) from the ranks of the Gay Community, that community is reduced to a small protion of what it is.

    2. Arpad’s been real clear that he does not enjoy bottoming. Why would it make him “all right” with us if he did soemthing he does not enjoy?

    3. I, for one, prefer my tops exlusive. I’m not a fan of sexual versatility. I HATE flip-flop scenes, since I have to switch mental-identification midway through the scene, so Arpad’s long refusal to bottom is a good thing about him in my eyes. But If he bottoms sometime, I won’t abandon him because of it, though I wouldn’t be likely to watch the scene. I’ve enjoyed many versatile performers. Some make better tops and some make better bottoms (When I see Dean Monore top, something in me says: “Something has gone horribly wrong here.”), but all that matters to me while watching a scene, is what they are doing IN THAT SCENE.

  51. marty on September 10, 2011 5:29 am

    ” He doesn’t cum inside her, but he pulls out just as he starts to cum and shoots all over her back. Sorta blows that whole “100% gay” illusion right outta the water, ya know?”

    Why cant Arpad pull this scene when he is with a guy? for some reason there is too much editing going on in his gay cum scenes. Do you guys notice that they always cut the cum scenes in gay porn? Maybe he isnt gay after all.
