I’ve been getting a lot of emails over the past week or so about the apparent death of performer Nelson Troy. My colleague Jason Sechrest notes a source in West Hollywood City Hall passed along the news. But I haven’t yet been able to find another source to confirm the details, and thus I’ve been reluctant to post anything. But the story has been cycling around the blogosphere and I wanted to at least take note of it. Along those lines, there were several blog reports last night that performer Adam Faust, 38, died in New York City on Wednesday. Again, I haven’t yet confirmed this story. I hate to think it might be true. Mr. Sechrest described Nelson Troy as “(s)tunningly beautiful and a force of nature.” He made just a handful of films in 2009 and ’10 for CockyBoys, Rascal Video and SX Video. The handsome, rugged Mr. Faust, a GayVN Awards nominee, made his erotic debut in 2004 and over the next seven years anchored 50 or so blue movies for a wide variety of studios — All Worlds Video, Dark Alley Media, Dirty Bird Pictures, Hot House Video, Mustang Studios, Rascal Video, Titan Media and others — with a special focus on kink and fetish. My condolences to their family, friends and fans. As soon as I have more details, I’ll pass them along.

    Sad news indeed. But according to Howard of Fabscout. (Tweet) There were several others who worked in porn passed away. I’m not talking about Erik Rhodes.

    Two heart attacks this year both under 40?

    I agree with Mark, there does seem to be a lot of our boys dying these days. All young and so talented and far too early. May they both RIP.

    You have a huge number of “porn stars” in 2012 compared to 1985 thus more quantity. Consider the number not mentioned on this site . We all know the reasons, this is not a healthy industry, it’s money over mental and physical health. People seem so shocked. Yes, they are kind , but overwhelmingly this industry does not support mental and physical health. We glamorize porn.
