#22 Gay For Pay

LOS ANGELES
July 19, 2010

STRANGER: Malachi Marx
LOCATION: Los Angeles
THEME: An afternoon with a gay for pay porn actor/escort

Caution: This interview contains explicit sexual language

“I’m not gay and I don’t like pornography.”

Not the words you’d expect from someone who has made thousands of dollars from performing in gay porn videos and escorting with a mostly male clientele, often with sex involved. But it’s exactly how Malachi Marx describes his career being gay for pay.

Malachi, 25, doesn’t necessarily look at gay porn as a bad thing; rather, he sees it as work. Hard work that he sometimes struggles to get through, but work nonetheless. His primary focus appears to be on using his career in the sex industry as a means to providing a solid future for his partner and children.

I knew nothing about the gay for pay industry so wanted to find out more, and Malachi agreed to an interview. So it was we met up for lunch at a mutually convenient spot one sunny Monday in Los Angeles. Before starting the interview we swung by a delicatessen to pick up some lunch. The site is called Dining With Strangers, after all. We got panini, mine with pesto chicken and Malachi’s a turkey artichoke concoction. With something to sate my never-ending appetite, it was off to the interview.

When we first arrived at our place to eat and talk, I met Malachi’s partner, tending to one of their young children, so I refrained from asking any porn or escorting questions while I said my hello to the Marx family. Malachi and I had our lunch while we chatted with his partner.

The chicken pesto panino was delicious, tender cuts of meat with a heart attack-inducing amount of mozzarella cheese and an excellent pesto to finish it off. I had some fruit on the side to try and provide something healthy to counteract the massive panini. Great stuff.

Malachi similarly enjoyed his turkey artichoke panini with a pesto salad. I refrained from snatching a taste of his food. Malachi’s son got to try some of his dad’s panino though, and seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.

The words “doting father” could easily be used to describe the way Malachi interacts with his son, very playful, keeping a watchful eye on the kid as he wandered around. Similarly, he’s very affectionate with his partner. I’m not a huge fan of public displays of affection, but I can say their interaction seemed natural and unforced.

But Malachi’s partner wasn’t going to stick around for the interview. By design, the couple keep the world of gay porn and escorting separate from their home life. So it was then that she left to take their child off to play, and I was able to start up the tape recorder.

Even though the two don’t talk about his current career, Malachi’s partner and her pregnancy is the reason he started doing adult videos for the gay porn website Randy Blue. But escorting came first, a world in which people pay for companionship with (typically) very attractive men or women, with sex considered by mutual consent and not included in the price of an escort, a legal loophole making it a quasi-legal profession. It was primarily crippling debt that pushed him into that industry.

“I was struggling to get above water while waiting tables and doing small time modeling gigs, and it was creating a lot of stress in my life,” Malachi said. He spoke with a gay friend named Carl, a guy who was a former male to male escort turned successful photographer. Carl told Malachi that the “quickest way you can get money is drugs, dancing or escorting and porn.” Malachi had already tried some low-level drug dealing before realizing the risks of jail time far outweighed the financial benefits, and so he started to consider escorting. One thing was certain — he didn’t want to enter the higher profile world of porn.

It’s just a dick”

The market just wasn’t there to be a heterosexual escort, so if he was going to enter the profession; he’d have to do it with men. One big problem: Malachi’s not gay, “If I was gay, I would be a lesbian. I didn’t just jump into it. I was going through a lot of emotions mixed with stress and extreme motivation to make something of myself,” Malachi said. So he turned to his friend Carl for advice on what to do.

Carl said that Malachi could probably get by initially offering nude massages to clients, but that some clients would be expecting more.

“It’s just a dick,” Carl told Malachi to try and make him comfortable with jerking a guy off. “When you masturbate you’re touching a dick, it’s just another guy’s dick.” Adopting this mentality — combined with debt problems and using a substantial amount of pot — was enough for Malachi to get over his strong reluctance to doing anything sexual with men.

Carl “coerced me into it and taught me the ropes,” Malachi said, first with a profile on a site called Rentboy on which male escorts can advertise their, well, companionship for sale.

Oh, and the name Malachi? He chose it because “I heard it in my dreams, it’s different and Malachi was a prophet, I guess I feel like I’ve got something to say.” A quick Google search confirms the religious background of the name, but the conversation was about gay sex for money and not worship, so the questions went back to his life as an escort.

Through Rentboy Malachi got several clients for massages, and eventually got raunchier when some of the clients offered more money to perform oral sex on him. “It gave me a weird gut feeling and I couldn’t believe I was doing it,” he said. But the financial benefit — $800 a client — was too much to pass up. “While I was working, in my mind I had to just keep saying the amount of money I’d make. That got me through it.”

After what he described as a long, rough season of learning and accepting all clientele, including women and lesbian couples, Malachi developed a strategy of taking on submissive non-dominating clients that wouldn’t try to force him into doing anything he wasn’t comfortable with. “I would only go after the easy clients, that ones that just want to suck my dick or give me a hand-job or a massage. I’m kind of spoiled in a way because I can really use my looks and my body” to filter out the more dominant clients that might want to push him beyond his comfort level, he said.

One surprise for Malachi was the high number of straight men with families who would hire him. “I started finding out the truth about people and relationships when I started having sex for money,” he said.

For example, there was the ex-KGB Russian client, a 6 foot 3 inch tall man who would show up to Malachi’s place with a gun strapped to his belt. “He was a modern day gangster and I kept thinking ‘what the fuck did I get myself into?’” But the guy — who was married with two children — wasn’t threatening. He just wanted, uh, companionship.

I had no life, no freedom, no girl”

Other clients were gay, including a male couple in New York who made Malachi their houseboy in Manhattan. That involved hanging around their place, spending time with them and once a day giving erotic massages to the duo. They even took him to the Hamptons out in Long Island for a Gay tea party. That’s where Malachi met other potential clients, one who offered to pay him twice what the duo were providing. He politely turned the guy down that night — “I was with the couple and I respected them” — but took his business card and saw him the following week.

That didn’t sit too well with the gay duo from Manhattan, who wanted Malachi to be exclusive to them. “But how do you expect a professional sex worker to be exclusive? I’m here to make money and being a houseboy was 100 percent of the time. After a month I couldn’t do it anymore. I had no life, no freedom, no girl, I was just bored.” So that’s when he switched to one-off meetings with clients.

Malachi’s escorting got bigger and progressed, and his comfort level with the work increased to the point where he was having full-on sex with men with money. All the time though he saw it as a means to an end, a way to make money to pay off debts.

Then his partner got pregnant and moved in with him. “I told her not to work, I wanted her to be a stay-at-home mom. After she got pregnant I realized I needed to make more money.”

He started scouting around for other ways to bring home cash. Straight porn offered relatively low wages for men, roughly $200 for six hours’ work. But Malachi saw a Craigslist advert from Randy Blue asking for performers to do solo masturbation scenes. He learned that the take-home pay for a few hours of pleasuring himself in front of a camera would be worth $2,000. “It was the only way to control my situation with an unplanned pregnancy and stressful debt, and I was already programmed to perform” from escorting.

Malachi went ahead and performed for a solo video. After it aired, Randy Blue liked what they saw, and offered Malachi $3,500 for a guy to perform oral sex on him for a video on their site the following month. “They saw lots of money in me and I saw lots of money in them.” So this mutually financially beneficial relationship blossomed, leading into gay porn magazine covers and photo shoots and pushing his earnings into a previously unachievable category.

I’ve never done anything gay if I haven’t been paid for it”

Being a Randy Blue actor gave him “leverage” as an escort. Now clients weren’t just going after his looks, they were also paying to enjoy the apparent fantasy of being with a gay porn star. From a few hundred dollars per session, Malachi was now able to charge much higher prices including $2,500 for an overnight stay or $1,000 for an out-visit.

The money was good and he certainly hustled. But there was one thought that returned. “There were times where I asked myself, am I gay? Is this just something that I’m using as an excuse? And I spent a lot of time exploring that in my mind,” he said.

This was in the thick of his career when he was making close to $25,000 a month, filming scenes for Randy Blue and hitting five major cities in a week to see clients all over the country (and sometimes the world). That’s a lot of sex. “So I explored if I could actually get turned on by a guy. I tried. But I couldn’t. The curiosity was answered and I knew I was heterosexual,” he said.

“I appreciate guys, I appreciate male camaraderie. I know what to appreciate out of males but I have no desire to have sex with them for pleasure. I’ve never done anything gay if I haven’t been paid for it. I put on a game face, a facade, a character, and I make money” being gay for pay, he added.

I asked Malachi how much longer he intends to stay in the gay for pay world, especially with the money being so bountiful. “It’s great money and a fast lifestyle if your mind and body can handle it. But I’ll be so glad to get out of it,” he said.

Malachi wants to make enough money to start some non-porn businesses, and when he hits that fiscal goal he’s gone. In the meantime, he’s writing a book telling stories about the highs and lows and twists and turns of being a sex worker. And there are stories.

For example, there was a Middle East oil prince who offered Malachi $50,000 to be a personal assistant for a three month period. He’d have a paid car and be completely taken care of. Good deal, right? Well, Malachi thought there was something a little off about it. From escorting, he’d developed a wide range of contacts so he asked one of his clients for a second opinion. The client read over the prince’s e-mails and warned him that it was an attempt to trap Malachi in a sex slavery ring, in which royalty from another country ensnares someone for a year or two — or potentially forever.

Money turns me on”

Malachi suspected what might happen if he went with the prince, so he devised a plan. The prince’s assistant picked him up one day in Los Angeles and they went out to Beverly Hills for suit shopping on Rodeo Drive. The assistant even gave Malachi $8,000 in cash, stuffed inside an envelope. He was meant to meet the prince after that for dinner, but the assistant said there had been a last-minute change of plan and that they’d have to drive straight to the airport and fly out to the Middle East.

This is where Malachi’s plan kicked in. The car doors were locked, so he asked the driver to wind down the window so he could have a cigarette. The driver complied and the car rolled along toward the airport. Then it stopped at a red light. Not wasting a second, Malachi stuffed the envelope of cash in his pants, threw the burning cigarette on the assistants lap, jumped out the window, and ran.

He kept on running. He could hear tires screeching on the pavement as the driver frantically tried to turn around and catch the runaway sex worker. Malachi rushed to find a hiding spot, climbing a hotel stairwell and staying out of sight on the building’s rooftop for three hours, shaking with adrenaline and fear. Eventually he thought it would be safe to take a peek to see if the prince’s men were gone. They were. After deleting his email account and changing phone numbers Malachi gratefully realized he got away from what he said was one of the most dangerous escort situations he faced.

That story might make it into his book, which is still in the works — although he originally intended to have the book out by December last year after announcing his retirement from the gay porn and escorting world one month earlier. But problems ensued. Writing the book was much harder than he anticipated, and money woes meant he had to step back in front of the camera in January. After that, he once again announced his retirement and was focused on finishing off the book.

That’s when he found out his partner was pregnant again. So money and other needs pulled him back into the escorting and gay porn industry, just as they first got him into it.

Malachi has apparently received some criticism for claiming he “retired” from Randy Blue and the escorting life once or twice before in the past few months. And he notes there is frustration from people who had pre-paid for his book expecting to have read it by now. Malachi is fine with giving refunds to anyone who asks him for one — and there have been two such requests — but he said most of the people who have paid are willing to wait a little longer, and he wants to deliver.

“I should have waited to announce it later on, I shouldn’t have got so excited about it. But I know there’s a fun story to write, and it is coming.” He’s fixated on finishing the book by September for two reasons: one, it’s a contractual deadline to have it out by then and two — more importantly for Malachi — “it’ll be a healing process for myself to get it all out there.”

Given his general dislike for the work that he does and his declarations of quitting, he acknowledged that it looks odd to retire and return, retire and return. But he said each time he finds himself back in front of the camera it’s because of bills to pay and the need for a quick and easy funding source. It’s never because of boredom or a desire to be adored by gay men, he said.

Instead, it’s just a job for Malachi, who never treated his life in the gay porn world as that of an artistic statement or creative endeavor, and instead looked on it strictly as work. “Money turns me on, and life without it is off,” he said.

To his critics, Malachi has a simple response. “Fuck yourself.” His more elaborate response, “Everyone has a background, everyone has had problems and everyone has bills to pay.

You have an expiration date”

“For every one that has some debate or that dislikes me there are 100 that like me. People ask me, ‘How can you be straight’? You can. It’s just like anybody who worked a job they didn’t enjoy. It’s like being a laborer. I was not a laborer in my mind when I was working construction jobs. I didn’t enjoy it. Who enjoys 10 hours of construction in the blistering heat and you’re burned out? I did gay for pay for money. It pays a heck of a lot more and it’s a job. I can program myself to do a j-o-b, especially in these hard economic times.”

Malachi filmed his most recent scene for Randy Blue earlier in July, and he says this one will really be his last for them — barring the need for more funds.

He said it was stressful getting back in front of the camera, surrounded by blinding fluorescent lights while getting it on with another man. “It was difficult. There’s this intense heat from the lights shining on you, and four crew people are watching you, and it’s stop-go, stop-go. I had the biggest headache and I came home and I threw up. It fucked me up.”

For Malachi, the experience brought back the lowest of the low points about being gay for pay. “There were times when I’d come home sick, I didn’t know who I was.” He said he managed to clear his thoughts up and stay focused by concentrating on the money he’d make from a client or video. During those sessions, he’d mentally fixate on the various girlfriends he had (which his partner allowed and had often participated with) and earnings in order to get through it.

Still, he had some positive experiences from his career, meeting people from all walks of life and professions and learning a lot about being a businessman because many of his clients were self-made millionaires. “It was so beneficial to listen to their successes and mistakes,” he said.

Sex sells”

Now he’s focused on getting the book out the way and putting the gay for pay world behind him for good — and not as another temporary retirement. He’s been offered thousands of dollars from a well-known porn producer (not Randy Blue) to do a scene, and an even more substantial sum to do a video that would involve urinating on guys. Apparently that pays well.

But not well enough to keep him doing it forever. He’s ready to get out, ready to finish his book and be done with the world of gay for pay. From the start, he made a conscious decision to make an “extreme separation” between his home life and his work life. He also devoted a lot of his time to his family whenever he was off-camera or not with a client.

“A lot of guys that get into gay for pay don’t have an outlet like a family, and they get off on people really liking them and/or they have a vice or addiction they need to fund, but you need to have a plan of action,” he said. “You’re going to hit 40 and your sexy looks won’t sell. You have an expiration date.”

Malachi is keenly aware that the sex industry is superficial and that once his book is done and he’s permanently retired, people will soon forget him. “In a few years nobody is going to know who I am. There will be a fresh face, a new great looking guy, a new kid in town. Yeah, there will still be Malachi videos, but that will be in the past. Nobody will know where I am or what I’m doing.”

What about his family? Suppose one day the Marx children are browsing the Internet and stumble upon information that leads them to discover what they dad did for work?

He sought advice from other escorts and porn actors on how to prevent his children from finding out, and one of those tips was to make a clear separation between his home and work. Even so, most of Malachi’s family knows what he does even if they’re not too comfortable with it. And if his children find out, he said it’s kismet and he will explain that he did it as a way to make money for them. “If it happens, it’s supposed to happen, I love them so much and that’s why I do everything I do” he said.

It was time to wrap things up. I thanked Malachi for the interview and said goodbye to his partner, who had since returned. As I was leaving Malachi told me one of his favorite phrases, “Money comes easily and frequently.” It seems like being gay for pay brings money frequently, but not necessarily easily. Still, it appears that the lucrative side wins out.

“Sex sells, that’s the truth,” Malachi said.

I’m not gay and I don’t like pornography.”

Not the words you’d expect from someone who has made thousands of dollars from performing in gay porn videos and escorting with a mostly male clientele, often with sex involved. But it’s exactly how Malachi Marx describes his career being a gay for pay porn performer and escort.

Malachi, 25, doesn’t necessarily look at gay porn as a bad thing; rather, he sees it as work. Hard work that he sometimes struggles to get through, but work nonetheless. His primary focus appears to be on using his career in the sex industry as a means to providing a solid future for his partner and children.

Originally the two of us intended to have dinner in West Hollywood, a neighborhood of Los Angeles known for its gay population and nightlife. I hoped we’d have dinner at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant at the London West Hollywood, primarily because I enjoy the reality show “Hell’s Kitchen” in which Ramsay yells at a bunch of Americans. As a Brit, that’s something I find appealing.

Regardless, it was not to be due to various extenuating circumstances, but after a last-minute change of plans Malachi (not his real name) invited me over to his place for a lunch interview.

Sometimes the strangers I interview act stand-offish when we first begin the interview, or they’ll eye me warily and say, “Well, I thought the idea of having dinner with a stranger was a little bizarre, but you seem all right,” before their words trail off and I can sense them asking internally whether I’m sane.

I’ll deflect answering that question and instead say that Malachi wasn’t at all like that and projected an outgoing, amiable nature that made conversation flow freely and frequently.

Before starting the interview we swung by a local delicatessen to pick up some lunch. We got panini, mine with pesto chicken and Malachi’s a turkey artichoke concoction. With something to sate my never-ending appetite, it was off to his place for the interview.

There was funky (do people still use that word?) music playing from some unseen stereo in the kitchen. The place had a crisp, bright look to it, painted mostly in white with cream-colored fixtures and fittings. Malachi’s partner was home, tending to one of their young children, so I refrained from asking any porn or escorting questions while I said my hello to the Marx household.

Before we started the interview, Malachi and I had our lunch while we chatted with his partner.

The chicken pesto panino was delicious, tender cuts of meat with a heart attack-inducing amount of mozzarella cheese and an excellent pesto to finish it off. I had some fruit on the side to try and provide something healthy to counteract the massive panini. Great stuff.

Malachi similarly enjoyed his turkey artichoke panini with a pesto salad. I refrained from greedily snatching a taste of his food. Besides, my serving alone was enough to sate my appetite. Malachi’s son got to try some of his dad’s panino though, and seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.

The words “doting father” could easily be used to describe the way Malachi interacts with his son, very playful and caring, keeping a watchful eye on the kid as he wandered around the room. Similarly, he’s very affectionate with his partner. I’m not a huge fan of public displays of affection, but I can say their interaction seemed very natural and unforced, the two of them appear to adore each other.

But Malachi’s partner wasn’t going to stick around for the interview. By design, the couple keep the world of gay porn and escorting separate from their home life. So it was then that she left the house to take their child out to play, and I was able to start up the tape recorder.

Even though the two don’t talk about his current career, Malachi’s partner and her pregnancy is the reason he started doing adult videos for the gay porn website Randy Blue. But escorting came first, a world in which people pay for companionship with (typically) very attractive men or women, with sex considered by mutual consent and not included in the price of an escort, a legal loophole making it a quasi-legal profession. It was primarily crippling debt that pushed him into that industry.

I was struggling to get above water while waiting tables and doing small time modeling gigs, and it was creating a lot of stress in my life,” Malachi said. He spoke with a gay friend named Carl, a guy who was a former male to male escort turned successful photographer. Carl told Malachi that the “quickest way you can get money is drugs, dancing or escorting and porn.” Malachi had already tried some low-level drug dealing before realizing the risks of jail time far outweighed the financial benefits, and so he started to consider escorting. One thing was certain at this point — he didn’t want to enter the higher profile world of porn.

The market just wasn’t there to be a heterosexual escort, so if he was going to enter the profession; he’d have to do it with men. One big problem: Malachi’s not gay, “If I was gay, I would be a lesbian”

I didn’t just jump into it. I was going through a lot of emotions mixed with stress and extreme motivation to make something of myself,” Malachi said. So he turned to his friend Carl’s for advice on what to do.

Carl said that Malachi could probably get by initially offering nude massages to clients, but that some clients would be expecting a little bit more. Now, my mother reads this site so in advance I’ll apologize to her for the explicit terms in this article, not something that usually winds up on this site. Looking mum in the eye over Christmas dinner will be difficult this year.

It’s just a dick,” Carl told Malachi in an attempt to make him more comfortable with jerking a guy off. “When you masturbate you’re touching a dick, it’s just another guy’s dick.” Adopting this mentality — combined with debt problems and the use of a substantial amount of pot — was enough for Malachi to get over his initial strong reluctance to doing anything sexual with men.

Carl “coerced me into it and taught me the ropes,” Malachi said, first with a profile on a site called Rentboy on which male escorts can advertise their, well, companionship for sale.

Oh, and the name Malachi? He chose it because “I heard it in my dreams, it’s different and Malachi was a prophet, I guess I feel like I’ve got something to say.” A quick Google search confirms the religious background of the name, but the conversation was about gay sex for money and not worship, so the questions went back to his life as an escort.

Through Rentboy Malachi got several clients for massages, and eventually got raunchier when some of the clients offered more money to perform oral sex on him (again, sorry for the graphic details, mum). “It gave me a weird gut feeling and I couldn’t believe I was doing it,” he said. But the financial benefit — $800 a client — was too much to pass up. “While I was working, in my mind I had to just keep saying the amount of money I’d make. That got me through it.”

After what he described as a long, rough season of learning and accepting all clientele, including women and lesbian couples, Malachi developed a strategy of taking on submissive non-dominating clients that wouldn’t try to force him into doing anything he wasn’t comfortable with. “I would only go after the easy clients, that ones that just want to suck my dick or give me a hand-job or a massage. I’m kind of spoiled in a way because I can really use my looks and my body” to filter out the more dominant clients that might want to push him beyond his comfort level, he said.

One surprise for Malachi was the high number of straight men with families who would hire him. “I started finding out the truth about people and relationships when I started having sex for money,” he said.

For example, there was the ex-KGB Russian client, a 6 foot 3 inch tall mound of a man who would show up to Malachi’s place with a gun strapped to his belt. “He was a modern day gangster and I kept thinking ‘what the fuck did I get myself into?’” But the guy — who was married with two children — wasn’t threatening. He just wanted some, uh, naked male companionship.

Other clients were gay, including a male couple in New York who made Malachi their houseboy in Manhattan. That involved hanging around their place, spending time with them and once a day giving erotic massages to the duo. They even took him to the Hamptons out in Long Island for a Gay tea party. That’s where Malachi met other potential clients, one who offered to pay him twice what the duo were providing. He politely turned the guy down that night — “I was with the couple and I respected them” — but took his business card and saw him the following week.

That didn’t sit too well with the gay duo from Manhattan, who wanted Malachi to be exclusive to them. “But how do you expect a professional sex worker to be exclusive? I’m here to make money and being a houseboy was 100 percent of the time. After a month I couldn’t do it anymore. I had no life, no freedom, no girl, I was just bored.” So that’s when he switched to one-off meetings with clients.

Malachi’s escorting got bigger and progressed, and his comfort level with the work increased to the point where he was having full-on sex with men with money. All the time though he saw it as a means to an end, a way to make money to pay off debts.

Then his partner got pregnant and moved in with him. “I told her not to work, I wanted her to be a stay-at-home mom. After she got pregnant I realized I needed to make more money.”

He started scouting around for other ways to bring home cash. Straight porn offered relatively low wages for men, roughly $200 for six hours’ work. But Malachi saw a Craigslist advert from Randy Blue asking for performers to do solo masturbation scenes. Finding out more, he learned that the take-home pay for a few hours of pleasuring himself in front of a camera would be worth $2,000. “It was the only way to control my situation with an unplanned pregnancy and stressful debt,and I was already programmed to perform” from escorting, he said.

Malachi went ahead and performed for a solo video. After it aired, Randy Blue liked what they saw, and offered Malachi $3,500 for a guy to perform oral sex on him for a video on their site the following month. “They saw lots of money in me and I saw lots of money in them.” So this mutually financially beneficial relationship blossomed, leading into gay porn magazine covers and photo shoots and pushing his earnings into a previously unachievable category.

Being a Randy Blue actor gave him “leverage” as an escort. Now clients weren’t just going after his looks, they were also paying to enjoy the apparent fantasy of being with a gay porn star.

This was in the thick of his career when he was making close to $25,000 a month, filming scenes for Randy Blue and hitting five major cities in a week to see clients all over the country (and sometimes the world). That’s a lot of sex. “So I explored if I could actually get turned on by a guy. I tried. But I couldn’t. The curiosity was answered and I knew I was heterosexual,” he said.

I appreciate guys, I appreciate male camaraderie. I know what to appreciate out of males but I have no desire to have sex with them for pleasure. I’ve never done anything gay if I haven’t been paid for it. I put on a game face, a facade, a character, and I make money” being gay for pay, he added.

I asked Malachi how much longer he intends to stay in the gay for pay world, especially with the money being so bountiful. “It’s great money and a fast lifestyle if your mind and body can handle it. But I’ll be so glad to get out of it,” he said.

Malachi wants to make enough money to start some non-porn businesses, and when he hits that fiscal goal he’s gone. In the meantime, he’s writing a book telling stories about the highs and lows and twists and turns of being a sex worker. And there are definitely stories.

For example, there was a Middle East oil prince who offered Malachi $50,000 to be a personal assistant for a 3 month period. He’d have a paid car and be completely taken care of. Good deal, right? Well, Malachi thought there was something a little off about it. From escorting, he’d developed a wide range of contacts so he asked one of his clients for a second opinion. The client read over the prince’s e-mails and warned him that it was an attempt to trap Malachi in a sex slavery ring, in which royalty from another country ensnares someone for a year or two — or potentially forever.

Malachi suspected what might happen if he went with the prince, so he devised a plan. The prince’s assistant picked him up one day in Los Angeles and they went out to Beverly Hills for suit shopping on Rodeo Drive. The assistant even gave Malachi $8,000 in cash, stuffed inside an envelope. He was meant to meet the prince after that for dinner, but the assistant said there had been a last-minute change of plan and that they’d have to drive straight to the airport and fly out to the Middle East.

This is where Malachi’s plan kicked in. The car doors were locked, so he asked the driver to wind down the window so he could have a cigarette. The driver complied and the car rolled along toward the airport. Then it stopped at a red light. Not wasting a second, Malachi stuffed the envelope of cash in his pants, threw the burning cigarette on the assistants lap, jumped out the window, and ran.

He kept on running. He could hear tires screeching on the pavement as the driver frantically tried to turn around and catch the runaway sex worker. Malachi rushed to find a hiding spot, climbing a hotel stairwell and staying out of sight on the building’s rooftop for three hours, shaking with adrenaline and fear. Eventually he thought it would be safe to take a peek to see if the prince’s men were gone. They were. After deleting his email account and changing phone numbers Malachi gratefully realized he got away from what he said was one of the most dangerous escort situations he faced.

That story might make it into his book, which is still in the works — although he originally intended to have the book out by December last year after announcing his retirement from the gay porn and escorting world one month earlier. But problems ensued. Writing the book was much harder than he anticipated, and money woes meant he had to step back in front of the camera in January. After that, he once again announced his retirement and was focused on finishing off the book.

That’s when he found out his partner was pregnant again. So money and other needs pulled him back into the escorting and gay porn industry, just as they first got him into it.

Malachi has apparently received some criticism for claiming he “retired” from Randy Blue and the escorting life once or twice before in the past few months. And he understands there is some frustration from people who had pre-paid for his book expecting to have read it by now. Malachi is fine with giving refunds to anyone who asks him for one — and there have been two such requests — but he said most of the people who have paid are willing to wait a little longer, and he wants to deliver.

I should have waited to announce it later on, I shouldn’t have got so excited about it. But I know there’s a fun story to write, and it is coming.” He’s fixated on finishing the book by September for two reasons: one, it’s a contractual deadline to have it out by then and two — more importantly for Malachi — “it’ll be a healing process for myself to get it all out there.”

Given his general dislike for the work that he does and his declarations of quitting, he acknowledged that it looks odd to retire and return, retire and return. But he said each time he finds himself back in front of the camera it’s because of bills to pay and the need for a quick and easy funding source. It’s never because of boredom or a desire to be adored by gay men, he said.

Instead, it’s just a job for Malachi, who never treated his life in the gay porn world as that of an artistic statement or creative endeavor, and instead looked on it strictly as work. “Money turns me on, and life without it is off,” he said.

To his critics, Malachi has a simple response. “Fuck yourself.” His more elaborate response, “Everyone has a background, everyone has had problems and everyone has bills to pay.

For every one that has some debate or that dislikes me there are 100 that like me. People ask me, ‘How can you be straight’? You can. It’s just like anybody who worked a job they didn’t enjoy. It’s like being a laborer. I was not a laborer in my mind when I was working construction jobs. I didn’t enjoy it. Who enjoys 10 hours of construction in the blistering heat and you’re burned out? I did gay for pay for money. It pays a heck of a lot more and it’s a job. I can program myself to do a j-o-b, especially in these hard economic times.”

Malachi filmed his most recent scene for Randy Blue earlier in July, and he knows this one will really be his last for them — barring the need for more funds.

He said it was stressful getting back in front of the camera, surrounded by blinding fluorescent lights while getting it on with another man. “It was difficult. There’s this intense heat from the lights shining on you, and four crew people are watching you, and it’s stop-go, stop-go. I had the biggest headache and I came home and I threw up. It fucked me up.”

For Malachi, the experience brought back the lowest of the low points about being gay for pay. “There were times when I’d come home sick, I didn’t know who I was.” He said he managed to clear his thoughts up and stay focused by concentrating on the money he’d make from a client or video. During those sessions, he’d mentally fixate on the various girlfriends he had (which his partner allowed and had often participated with) and earnings in order to get through it.

Still, he had some positive experiences from his career, meeting people from all walks of life and professions and learning a lot about being a businessman because many of his clients were self-made millionaires. “It was so beneficial to listen to their successes and mistakes,” he said.

Now he’s focused on getting the book out the way and putting the gay for pay world behind him for good — and not as another temporary retirement. He’s been offered thousands of dollars from a well-known porn producer (not Randy Blue) to do a scene, and an even more substantial sum to do a video that would involve urinating on guys. Apparently that pays well.

But not well enough to keep him doing it forever. He’s ready to get out, ready to finish his book and be done with the world of gay for pay. From the start, he made a conscious decision to make an “extreme separation” between his home life and his work life. He also devoted a lot of his time to his family whenever he was off-camera or not with a client.

A lot of guys that get into gay for pay don’t have an outlet like a family, and they get off on people really liking them and/or they have a vice or addiction they need to fund, but you need to have a plan of action,” he said. “You’re going to hit 40 and your sexy looks won’t sell. You have an expiration date.”

As someone who happened to have celebrated his 30th birthday the same day as the interview with Malachi, I’ll refrain from reprinting the swear words that rushed through my mind when I heard that 10 years from now it’s all downhill. And I couldn’t stay peeved after Malachi and his partner surprised me with an apple pie served with ice cream and chocolate and a chorus of “Happy Birthday.” Splendid.

Malachi is keenly aware that the sex industry is superficial and that once his book is done and he’s permanently retired, people will soon forget him. “In a few years nobody is going to know who I am. There will be a fresh face, a new great looking guy, a new kid in town. Yeah, there will still be Malachi videos, but that will be in the past. Nobody will know where I am or what I’m doing.”

What about his family? Suppose one day the Marx children are browsing the Internet and stumble upon information that leads them to discover what they dad did for work?

He sought advice from other escorts and porn actors on how to prevent his children from finding out, and one of those tips was to make a clear separation between his home and work. Even so, most of Malachi’s family knows what he does even if they’re not too comfortable with it. And if his children find out, he said it’s kismet and he will explain that he did it as a way to make money for them. “If it happens, it’s supposed to happen, I love them so much and that’s why I do everything I do” he said.

It was time to wrap things up. I thanked Malachi for a pleasant afternoon and said goodbye to his partner, who had since returned to the house. As I was leaving I spotted a framed picture, black lettering on white card, proclaiming, “Money Comes Easily and Frequently”

Sex sells, that’s the truth,” Malachi said.

    Totally enjoyed your post and plan on following up by cross posting your article on our website. Malachi is truly one hot guy in any event.

  2. L-InAustin says:

    Great article. I wonder a couple of things. First where you write “But the financial benefit — $800 a client — was too much to pass up.” I bet that gets close to that legal loophole limit you mention earlier.

    There is something sad about it. I remember I first ran across a video of his on the web that was with some Italian guy and Malachi says it was his first time bottoming; who knows what’s true. But in his first retirement, now second one, need for money, and proclaiming constantly that he is not enjoying it AT ALL – hates it not turned on by it … all of that said… is he protesting too much as in ‘I think thou doest…”? Or is it that he is so deeply confused and projects all of his emotions onto cash which is an inanimate piece of paper so that he doesn’t have to face himself or his feelings? And, uh, 2 surprise pregnancies; do condoms not work anymore between straight couples who do not want to get pregnant?

    Apologies for this much negative comment. Something about the story doesn’t add up and I don’t know what that is.

    And he’s a great actor but all this protesting has turned me off from him.

    Good article, though.

  3. emanuel says:

    Very good article.

    I have to agree with what has been said before. If he hates it so much as he says how can he possibly perform?

    I just don’t understand that part. And I feel a tad disappointed that the article did not delve deeper into it.

    I never watched his work. Never did it for me, and I can’t imagine other gay guys wanting to watch him after knowing he hates it so much.

  4. Gavin says:

    Malachi is a classic example of a guy who got into escorting and porn with the worst possible attitude. “I’m so hot that you should pay me” instead of “I’m here to serve you and find pleasure with you.”

    As in any profession, the seller is supposed to serve and appreciate the customers, not hate them. The escort/porn star should commit himself to finding something attractive about all but the nastiest of his clients and having fun, even for himself. Even hetero-oriented guys are capable of doing this, and many “gay 4 pay” models are skilled at it.

    But to hate the guys they have sex with; to hate gay sex and claim there’s no pleasure in it, even though their dicks are clearly hard and being stimulated, is just bullshit.

    Wolf Hudson said the same thing — that he never enjoys the sex he’s having — even just a little bit. It’s false, but these guys are ashamed. They’re terrified of what the haters will think. They’re terrified that having fun with the gender they’re not oriented toward somehow changes their general orientation, which it can’t.

    I don’t care how physically hot these guys are. Their attitudes make them ugly and unprofessional. They’re in the wrong business.

    Excellent Ant, keep it up. See you soon Love Auntie Sheena xx

  6. Will says:

    I love this idea, I’m gonna follow it.. but on this interview I must say, I live in weho and this porn star is just like all the other, “oh, i’m not gay and I don’t like internet porn”… Suuurrreee!

  7. Jerome says:

    I’ve never really liked him. For some reason knowing that he seems to have a good head on his shoulders makes me like him. Normally I’m turned off by guys who aren’t gay doing gay porn. Still not gonna buy his stuff but, he seems like a cool guy.

  8. Damon says:

    This was revolting. He’s a total moron, and so is anyone who follows him after reading this. Hays have absolutely no respect for themselves these days. I want to see gay, passionate sex. Not some jackass who finds his fans and their entire life repulsive.

  9. jason says:

    Most of the men who do male-male porn are bisexual in their orientation. Get used to it. In any case, I wouldn’t rely on porn to get my rocks off. Go out and experience life, for Pete’s sake. Porn is mostly for social misfits or for those who are too lazy to socialize.

  10. Deepak says:

    “It gave me a weird gut feeling and I couldn’t believe I was doing it.”

    Uh huh, sure Malachi, almost everyone believes the nonsense your spinning. Well except for me and the few others who are psychic. That’s right. There’s no hiding from us. The truth is, ever since you tasted Tina & opened up your hot ass for Leo, Jeremy, and Benjamin you haven’t been able to think about anything else.

  11. Forrest says:

    I think the thing about watching pornography is that you have to buy into some sort of fantasy that gets you off. I feel that most people who are upset about the gay for pay folks are ones who feel that their fantasy has been taken away. Most of the pay sites on the internet are aimed at gay people who want to have a fantasy about seducing a straight guy. If the guy is doing it for money it isn’t seduction but prostitution which lessens their sense of being attractive enough to seduce someone.
    I just hope that people who go into the gay for pay thing are well grounded enough to deal with whatever issues might come up. A great many of them are unable to do so.

  12. Joey says:

    When I read “then his partner got pregnant and moved in with him” and later, “when he found out his partner was pregnant again”, the impression it gives me is of unaccountability. Assuming she didn’t have spontaneous combustion, either he had a role in those developments or they are someone else’s kids.
    So let’s sum this up a bit. He’s rolling along more or less aimlessly, fell into drug dealing and hustling, then, when he impregnated his girlfriend to convince himself that he was straight, he started doing porn. That upped his price, which worked for a while, and still does. But he can see the end coming, so he wrote a book. Unless he has some undiscovered literary talent and is the next John Rechy, he’ll fall back into hustling and dealing, and the girlfriend will end up raising the kids on her own, with the public social service safety net picking up part of the bill.

  13. John says:

    I agree with Joey. He uses condoms in his Randy Blue work, why not with his girlfriend? And if he loves her so much, get married. I think he likes the ‘easy’ money and will forever be in debt and will continue to have sex with guys. But, whatever. I agree with Damon too. Give me hot, passionate man to man loving between GAY men!!

  14. Carl B says:

    I wonder if I will EVER get a refund for the book I foolishly pre-paid for that Malachi was suppossed to be writing about his experiences. It’s been 8 or 9 months now, and nothing. What a fraud he is, and what I fool I was for buying into it all.

  15. EJ says:

    It’s time for us as gay men to stop supporting the porn sites and actors that treat us with contempt. Gay porn should celebrate our sexuality! There are plenty of actual gay men who would happily do these clips without having to “throw up afterward”. We need to send the message to all these studios that we don’t need straight men in gay porn. The whole shtick that straight men are somehow “better” than us and that the filthy gay man is always trying to corrupt the saintly straight man so that he’ll try gay sex is such a tired old theme. Let’s get over it!

    I’m also curious what Malachi thinks he has to gain at this point by doing a story like this where he insults all of his former fans. Hey, if you HAVE to throw up after doing a scene then that’s your business, but a gentleman would have walked away and kept that part secret instead of insulting everyone who actually liked him at one time. Now -I- feel like I should throw up, too.

  16. james dean poynor says:

    some old story, should be that the sellers of porn be required to site orientation of actors, and acting is a job, so can’t blame him for going after the money but the interveiw really lost him a future in the biz, a rose is a rose and in this case a pansy
    no longer into supporting randy blue

  17. Krist. says:

    A lot of you are quite angered.

  18. Jeff says:

    This guy is full of shit. Contractual deadline? What publisher in their right mind would pay him to write a book? I doubt if he could write a letter. Publishers never give contracts to unknown authors. And how can he write a book when he’s hiding on rooftops with an envelope filled with cash? Since when do they use florescent light in videos? If they did everyone would look green. I’ve never heard of this guy before and I’ve never seen his videos. I found the link to this article on a blog I follow. He’s cute and based on the article, porn and escorting may be the best way for this bunny-rabbit breeder to make enough cash to support his harem and kids. My reaction: What a dumb fuck.

  19. OK says:

    If he loved his children he would set a better example for them – Kids do what they see. He is complete slave to money – net worth always follows self worth. It really can be that simple. Ur kids need YOU alone (as a whole complete being and presence) FIRST. Fine things come SECOND.

  20. Christopher says:

    First, if you can’t afford them, stop having so many f*cking kids.

    Sorry, but this guy comes across as a total douche. Like celebrities who feel the need to spout off their opinions on politics during completely unrelated interviews, I could really give a care less what the f*ck a porn star feels about what he/she does. They are there to have sex. Nothing less. Do it or don’t, keep the rest to yourself.

  21. Christopher says:

    That was supposed to read:

    “I couldn’t really care less what the f*ck a porn star feels…”

  22. Drew says:

    I’ve never done what he’s done and so obviously am speaking my own mind…but…

    He spends the whole time emphasizing that he doesn’t like what he’s doing and speaks improper English all over the place, yet he hopes this book of his to be made into a movie, and better yet, he wants to be the star in a movie about the sh*t he hates doing?

    And what kind of market is his book even aimed towards? Himself? The handful of other male escorts in this world? ’cause (generally speaking) the common straight man isn’t interested in gay escorting/porn, and neither is the straight woman… gay men LIKE gay sex so no market there…gay women…yeah right…has he thought about anything besides the fact that it might make him money?

    Seems like regardless of being straight or gay, he’ll always be a whore – for money – has to be the most unattractive quality in the world.

  23. BG says:

    As a Randy Blue subscriber I’ve seen several of Malachi’s performances, including “live” versions. Never at any time did I see even a trace of disgust or distaste on his face. He always appears very willing to do whatever the scene requires (even when bottoming), so I have a bit of trouble digesting the “I’m not gay and I hate what I do” attitude. There are countless different professions, so why do something you detest? Get an education and exert your energy elsewhere.

    Malachi, you may be comfortable telling your kids that you did it all for them, however, you were already working but were greedy for more money because you and your girlfriend are too fucking stupid to use birth control. Don’t fuck up your children’s heads and make them feel guilty that their father turned himself into a lying prostitute for them. At least be honest so they can have a decent life.

  24. D.Penn says:

    First of all, I’m not a fan, never heard of Malachi, and never seen one of his videos.

    Second, I think Malachi is very brave and very honest, both about his work and about how he feels doing it, and I think the gay men commenting here are displaying an entitled male attitude exactly like straight men and simply just don’t GET what REAL sex work is. I see a lot of anger here that Malachi was “just performing”. As if he should be honored to be sucking some jerk’s almighty dick for money! Let’s get real and stop confusing gay fantasy with reality, okay? Anyone of any gender or sexual orientation is NOT into sex work for the thrill of pleasing some dumb schmuck with a hard dick and a wallet: they do it for the money, period. Malachi admits he does it for the money only, which is sincere if not exactly smart, because gay men are very touchy about straight men in gay porn and feel they should do it for free or something, and if the sex worker admits they don’t really enjoy gay sex and don’t go looking for it in their leisure time, gay men get their knickers in a twist of offended ego.

    You rock, Malachi. You’re a sex worker who is honest about the work being difficult, dirty, confusing, and often demeaning. No one in their right mind would do it if it didn’t pay so well. Don’t listen to the haters, but please do get out of the business while you can.

  25. LG says:

    I don’t know if anyone will read this, as it is a little late in the game. but I just ran across this article today, leading from a google search of Malachi Marx. I am a straight woman, and I find him very attractive. He has a gorgeous face and body, and lucky him. After reading the article, though, I felt strange about how he has chosen to live his life, specifically, how he has chosen to continue to make a living at this point. I agree with the person who brought up the fact that he uses condoms in his videos, but has two unplanned pregnancies. What? This is 2011. Do you not know how these things happen? My big problem with him is this. He says at one point he is making over $25/month, and then suddenly he is desperate for cash again. He never explains how he got into such dire financial debt to begin with, nor does he explain how it continues to plague him. Really, the only logical conclusion is drugs. I know many people with two kids who live on $5-$6k/month, and manage to do it. Where is his money going? I find it strange. I don’t care if he’s gay or straight, but a comment earlier was right that said he should be a little more diplomatic in how he speaks about gays. After all, they are the ones buying his shit. And this should come as no surprise to anyone, but he is back in the business. He has a randy blue video as late as Feb, 2011. The money must be just too good. Once you have kids, you really need to think of how this will affect them and their self respect, and the respect, if any, that they would have for you. I see nothing good coming out of this, and we, as taxpayers, will end up supporting those kids when they are on the public dole.

  26. LG says:

    Sorry – I meant to say $25k/month. After further thinking, I am also wondering is there no other career out there that he can try? I selling his body his only choice? He doesn’t look dumb. Can he not educate himself even a little bit to open up some other career path?

  27. Trexpornstar says:

    Well, and if Malachi was only a gay guy playing a straight guy who’s making gay porn for money ? No ?

  28. LG says:

    I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. I have noticed that in most of his stuff, he only tops, and gives/gets blowjobs. I do think he is straight, again, can he not find anything out there to make money? I almost think he is lazy, and falls back on doing something he doesn’t have to think about. What is he gonna tell those kids? I have often wondered what the kids of people in the sex industry think of their parents – seeing them naked and involved in sexual acts. I bet it is very uncomfortable. I’d be mortified to see either of my parents naked, much less engaged in sex! And yeah, as someone said earlier, stop having kids if you can’t afford them.

  29. Trexpornstar says:

    He came to the interview with his sister (or roommate) and her kid. Gay men prefer straight men. He just builds an image of himself. Generating buzz. (IMHO). Remember “”Andy Warhol’s Flesh”.

  30. LG says:

    Hmmm. Interesting theory. If that’s the case, I wonder why he would go through so much bother… Didn’t what he said alienate gays? That is his target audience. Why would he do that? It may be hopeless to try and analyze him.

  31. Trexpornstar says:

    It’s just business. It’s just pretending there is no difference between public image and private life. That’s show business. Don’t forget there is a porn industry around him. Why doing this ? Because the same guy who will spit on Malachi’s interview will love to jerk off on Malachi’s porn video one hour later. Here, sex has nothing to do with moral or virtue, only with wildness and quest for best orgasm.

  32. LG says:

    I think you are right. So, IYHO, he will be popular no matter what the hell he says. He can’t have any respect for himself, and whoever the girl is , she doesn’t have any respect for him, either, or for herself, for taking part in it. What a dysfunctional mess they are. I don’t know what is in his mind, but he acts like he’s addicted to porn. He keeps saying he wants to get out, then a month later, he is on Randy Blue. What it all boils down to is that he’s hot and sexy, and the porn industry wants him.

  33. Trexpornstar says:

    You know, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe the guy is less cynical than almost all the guys writing comments here, less cynical than the porn industry. He’s just doing what he is asking to do by people faking with him, to make money on him. If he had a puppet with his dick, a Barbie porn puppet, like some porn stars have, I would say that his puppet receives more respect from people who buy it than he receives himself from people around him or watching at him. Because nobody hates a puppet, nobody is jealous of a puppet, nobody judges a puppet. But he is a young man and everything is possible for him. And good things too. If money doesn’t make him cynical. If he resists. For the moment, he cannot deny he is accomplice.

  34. LG says:

    TRex, I think we’ve exhausted the subject. Want to talk about something or someone else? I’m game for anything – movies, celebrities, pop culture, whatever.
    I’m bummed that one of my favourite blogs has gone dark. Have you checked it out? just beautiful men. The blogger hasn’t touched it since the end of October. Check it out. The photos on this blog are truly amazing.

  35. LG says:

    Ok, TRex, I saw something interesting. If you go to nakedfuel.com, you can see a clip from Randy Blue of two guys, Chris and Travis. It is a behind the scenes type of clip. You can see that they are watching a porn movie to get and stay hard. The porn movie they are watching is of two women. One of them, I think Travis, says “Look at that ass”, and the camera guy says, “just worry about your ass” I thought it was kind of funny! They must also be straight, though, if they are watching girls to get hard.

  36. Trexpornstar says:

    If we don’t quit, how Malachi will quit ?

  37. LG says:

    Not sure what you mean. Are you saying how can Malachi quit doing porn if people continue to watch him? If that is what you are saying, then I guess he cant – by supply and demand. Is that what you’re saying?
    People will always continue to watch porn. I guess he could do it for as long as he stays in shape, and is appealing to an audience.

  38. Trexpornstar says:

    I would agree if you have said this :
    “Are you saying how can Malachi quit doing porn if “I” continue to watch him? If that is what you are saying, then I guess he cant – by supply and demand. Is that what you’re saying?
    “I” will always continue to watch porn. I guess he could do it for as long as he stays in shape, and is appealing to an audience.”

  39. LG says:

    well, I guess we’ve solved that!
    Did you check out the Just Beautiful Men site?

  40. Bull says:

    I just stumbled across this article doing a google search for another adult film actor. I’m not sure anyone will see this, but here goes anyway.

    1st, I am a gay man who is NOT into str8 men. period. If I see a str8 man that is handsome, sexy, I can appreciate it, but I do not want him. I want guys who want guys.

    2nd. He reinforces that feeling in me. The sense of disgust he has for his work offends me. Why? Because he is ridiculing the very fans who buy memberships/pay him to escort.

    I no longer have memberships to any gay porn sites, or buy porn. He is a prime example why I don’t. The industry is filled with gay for pay actors, by some estimates higher than 70%. I will not give my money to people who ridicule me. I will not support people who fleece the gay community and then turn on them. There have been many instances of overt homophobia and hatred exhibited by these performers. And in very few instances, even violence perpuated by the same, including murder.

    Mr. Marx. You offend me. Not because you are str8, but because you take money from the very people you seem to feel contempt toward. Then go home and vomit because you hate it so much.

    My emotions feel like a tornado right now, spinning wildly around, out of control. I’m sure I’m not phrasing things quite the way I wanted.

    This has touched a nerve inside me, that only those who have faced contempt, hatred, ridicule for being gay. Those that have been betrayed by ones they thought were on their side can feel. And as a gay adult film actor, I would think you would be on our side. But what you project is that you are not.

    I’m sure that you have somehow focused everything on how you feel, that you cannot understand or want to understand how it makes people like me feel. I do understand needing money, I do understand having a job I hated, I do understand and sometimes I did things I didn’t want to do in order to survive, but never once did I take out my feelings on the very source of my income. I never once threw it in the face of the people who paid me. In fact, I was thankful that I was able to work and earn money.

    I’ll stop now, because I’m rambling.

  41. Canovas says:

    Too late to have this ever read but my big question is: what part of a three letter word (GAY) those dickheads don’t understand? There is not such a thing as “homosexual acting”. The sex engagement between two of the same sex, is by all meanings HOMOSEXUAL. You cannot say you are not homosexual while a dick is pounding deep into your ass. I have many friends that discuss freely sexual situations and sensations. Straight friends, some are very frank about it and state that if the right opportunity at the right moment would present ifself, they probably would try same sex engagement. Others say, clearly also that they could not ever cross that barrier. Not because of prejudice but simply because is not in their NATURE!!! And I understand that totally also.
    It is not in my nature to have sexual desire for women and although I had sex with women, I never lied to them that I was a gay man. And always, always I returned to men. It’s my nature! That said, if these “gay for pay” existed really, what I seriously doubt, they would not be vomiting after something so “unimportant” as a gay sex scene: they vomit because their emotions run face foward against their façade of real machos. You cannot ever play with your body so much and have that not reverberating into your soul and mind. They vomit out of disgust, yes they do, but they are mainly disgusted about themselves, their coward selves who cannot admit they love the forbidden fruit even more than the money they receive. Poor disgraced souls!

  42. Anony Mouse says:

    Randy Blue is a horrible company. I used to work for them. Half the people who work there (behind the scenes) claim to be straight (men) and when you assume that they may be gay because they are working for a gay porn site they get offended.

    You would think that straihgt people working for a gay company would be more open minded. But it’s strange. They are more homophobic because they are uncomfortable about what they where doing.

    When I signed up to work for them straight out of film school I thought it would be a fun experience and a supportive LGBTQ enviroment. But it wasn’t at all. The owner is apparently straight. (one of the owners) and they just want to make money off the gay community. And the entire studio runs that way. Everyone looks as if they hate their life. It’s just a toxic enivorment.

    And they should do mental health checks on the talent. Because there have been so many tantrums, so many situations where talent just freaks out on set.

    But yeah anyways. The company just sucks lol.

    I’ve seen photos of him, but he’s not my type so it never went beyond that. So what IS he doing now? Has he actually retired from porn? Any updates?

    I find the whole “gay for pay” thing pathetic. There are so many gay men that are gorgeous – why not just hire them? I’m sorry, but Mr. Marx is at least bi – no straight guy would do the things he does. Sexuality is fluid and many people can go both ways, but none of my straight guy friends would even entertain sucking a dick, much less taking it up the ass. So, forgive me if I bypass all of Mr. Marx’s work from now on, as well as anyone else who identifies as straight even though we all know better. Gay for pay is a travesty.

    I was attracted to Malachi watching some Randy Blue performances. I arranged a meeting with him in NYC. Had to laugh when I arrived at the hotel to find that it was right across the street from St. Malachy’s Church- we had a laugh over it. I wanted to enjoy his company, and I did, thoroughly. Everybody has issues. I didn’t want to marry the guy, didn’t want to become best buddies. Doesn’t bother me that he doesn’t prefer men. I had a great time with him; he was sweet and generous. It doesn’t have to be one bit more complicated than that. Saying that gay-for-pay is a travesty is like saying that sexuality is a travesty. Nonsense. That sounds to me like a different take on self-loathing. I’d get together with Malachi again if I could, and I bet it would be every bit as delightful to me as it was the first time. I like him, and I wish him the very best.

    I like that his “plan” for the oil prince was basically to steal his money. Says it all right there…

    I’m sorry, this kid is crazy and to buy this nonsense is also crazy.

    My college debt was $80,000. Then my credit card debt, $22,000. I worked as a waiter at several restaurants, which paid more at the time than my actual degree in film production. I’m gay. I was in New York. At no time did having sex with men for money ever even cross my mind – nor did I hang out with people who would even present that as an option.

    This kid is a hustler. He hustled the interviewer in buying his son story.

    What exactly was his debt and what was it for? What, back rent? What he owed a couple thousand to someone? I owed $100,000.00. In fact that’s common for most of American college graduates.

    What, he owed $2000 to some strange entity and this made him want to take up sex with men?

    It’s all bullshit. Straight up, narcissistic, irresponsible, I’m the victim bullshit… And you bought it and are continuing to promoting his illegal lifestyle.

    Barf.

    I can’t respect anyone who doesn’t own their truth and involvement in what they’ve done.

    “The money was gooood”, it’s called greed. He WANTED to make lots of money using his body. He went after men. He went after that market. Of course it becomes work having sex with strangers, but he did it.

    It’s hard to feel sorry for selfish people.
