Porn Stars Samuel Colt and Chris Porter Cause Controversy on Out.com
Adult stars Samuel Colt and Chris Porter met in 2010 on Twitter, then started hooking up after running into one another at personal appearances. Now the two men are boyfriends and living together, which isn't an unheard of situation among gay porn stars. So what's the fuss about?
Last week Out.com ran an interview with the two where they discuss their meeting and how they define their own relationship. It starts with Porter describing the duo having sex with another couple at Folsom Street Fair. Colt continues the story by saying, "It was romantic, it really was. We had anonymous strangers abusing us, but we were having an intimate moment." Hard to understand? Colt explains, "The heterosexual view of being faithful is so outdated. We don’t have to have sex only with each other to be faithful. I’m completely faithful to him, emotionally and with my heart. I can still get gang-banged and want to go back home to him."
Porter continues with, "We didn’t want monogamy. We knew that wouldn’t work. We’re both horny all of the time. We have rules. We don’t hook up with someone if we’re in the same city without the other one being involved. But if he’s out of town, I’ll hook up with someone. I’ll call and be like, 'Is that OK?' We’re honest and communicate."
That concept has created a firestorm among gay men on both Out.com and the fashion mag's Facebook page. Some readers support their relationship however they define it, others take issue with the article's "Monogamy Redefined" headline, some agree that as gay men we have a right to redefine the rules that straight society has put upon us, and still others think that these guys and their public behavior are giving mainstream gays a bad name. Obviously there's no answer to this situation, but it has opened up an amazing dialogue among readers.
