A jury in Sacramento has found erotica legend Ryan Idol guilty on four felony charges, including attempted murder, against an ex-girlfriend. Idol, whose real name is Marc Anthony Donais, was acquitted on one other felony charge. He is being held without bail and awaits a sentencing hearing currently scheduled for December 9. In addition to attempted murder, Idol was found guilty of battery, assault with a deadly weapon and “corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.” A local media report notes Idol “went to his then girlfriend’s home in 2009 to confront her over his suspicions of her cheating on him. During the encounter, he punched her repeatedly [and] beat her in the head with a toilet seat. The force of the beating shattered the toilet seat and caused severe cuts to the woman’s head.” Just a few months ago, Idol, 45, headlined Cocktails with the Stars at Micky’s nightclub in West Hollywood. His appearance drew the attention of the blogosphere and I interviewed him for my book. Stay tuned for further details. Talent manager David Forest alerted the industry to the news; no word, as yet, about whether Idol plans to appeal. He is facing a maximum 15 years in prison. Click the images to enlarge.

    Just fucking pathetic. I saw what you said on twitter about an appeal but it looks pretty bad for him now. It’s always these fucking gay for pay guys.

    Pathetic and just a waste. He had everything going for him.

    Spending the next 15 years in jail for raging over a cheating spouse is moronic!

    Why am I not surprised Madame Forest was slithering near by.

    He seems to be living in tha past, when he was young and gorgeous, and had everything going for him. That is well and truly gone, and unless he gets his act together and can afford a good lawyer, things can only, I am afraid, get worse.

    We actually met him when he was touring around with his play Scent of rain and could not have been more polite. I guess we got him on a good day. Stupidity at its worst. Ryan could not control his emotions and now he is going to spend many years in jail.

    Sad, tragic, stupid, everything said above. He was one of my favorites for many years. Too bad he could not get it together.

    Toilet seat or toilet tank lid?
    After cleaning toilets, I find it hard to hit someone with a Toilet seat.

    Just another perfect example of why gay porn companies should never hire these G4Pers pussy-lovin bricks & has beens.Who once starr in gay-porn who R looking 2 re-connect with gay-porn fans.So they can see how much money they can still make off of gay fans who R still lusting after them.Dis-spite the facts their married with wives,kids & girl-friends at home waiting 4 them because their not real gay porn-stars.Well no thank you I prefer the real thing 2 the G4Pers & fake str8-ones so I will keep my money in my pocket.I’m glad I was never one of his fans & that goes 4 Jeff-Stryker & Ken-Ryker too may-be now he will finally get that ass of his pounded in a ( prison cell ).P.S. Please stop calling these fools gay when they clearly R not.

    THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS STORY. AS A CIGAR SMOKER, I AM DIGGIN’ THIS PHOTO OF MR. IDOL – HAIRY FACE AND ALL!

    “GAY MASTER,”
    I DEFINITELY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR COMMENTS. THE CONCEPT OF “GAY FOR PAY” IS SILLY. THESE ARE, SIMPLY, HOMOSEXUALS WITH “ISSUES.” ADULT-FILM STUDIOS ARE NOT HIRING “GAY-FOR-PAYERS;” THEY ARE SIMPLY LOOKING FOR HOMOSEXUAL ACTORS WHO HAVE A MASCULINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE “ART OF GAYDAR” BACKFIRES. VISUAL IMAGES OF MALE EFFEMINANCY HAVE BECOME SHAMEFUL.
    THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
