Word on the Street

For the last couple of weeks I have been hearing stories about people who have appeared in gay porn videos having the videos suddenly appear in their neighborhoods. Let me say first, I personally watch and own porn. But, I am constantly amazed at some people who do porn movies who somehow don't believe that anyone will find out. I had a friend in the States who did a movie many years ago and it still pops up from time-to-time, and his picture is all over the Internet. It is one of the greatest regrets of his life. He wasn't forced or coerced, but thought it would just be in the "underground" gay market. He was still living at home at the time and just exploring his sexuality. Once he and his partner broke up, the partner sent the movie to his parents. Let's just say it is not the suggested route for telling your parents you're gay.

The conventional wisdom is that only "hustlers" will do porn movies. Not true. There are those who think they can do this to make a quick buck and no one will be the wiser. Not in this day and age. Not with the Internet. Many Dominicans who do these movies are told that the movies will not be sold in the D. R. This is true, but you can go on the Internet and see clips. Some sites have gone so far as to block access to the Dominican Republic. But friends and family abroad still have access to it.

A couple of gay Dominicans I know came by and were giving me the lowdown. I was curious about who they thought was trying to "out" these guys. They were both adamant that they thought it was gay Dominicans that live in the same neighborhoods as the "actors." They also say that there are people in the neighborhoods who are living double-lives. Wife/girlfriend with kids, but suspicions are heavy that they are gay, and when they find out about someone they spread the rumors as to take the suspicion off them. Another guy I know, who is a stripper, was also here. He did a movie and said the same thing happened to him. The first he heard was that someone in the colmado asked him if he was having sex with men in movies? He denied it, but a copy surfaced and he had to leave his house. The abuse became that bad. I asked him if he regretted doing the movie. He thought for a minute, and said he wished no one in his neighborhood knew about it.

I don't know. But you need to think long and hard before you get filmed having sex. Unfortunately, most people do things when they are young not worrying about the consequences it will have on their future.

What do you think?

I think that we all deserve respect no matter what kind of work we made and i saw a few clips on the internet tags as "dominican sex"... These guys know what they are doing...What really worries me is that, in some cases, they are not taking precautions and have "raw sex" sending a wrong messages....and its really bad! Guys protect yourselfs!

You and I both know of a certain young man who did a clip for Enrique Cruz. In fact, when you go to that site, he is right there in your face with his "talents" on display. Recently, I was checking out Hi5 and I ran into his page. There he is with wife, daughters, and the whole family. So cute. But, if some neighbor or relative sees him on the EC site, he would have a pretty sad time explaining why he is sucking on quite a large appendage and about eight minutes later has it up his @ss.

I think it is just down right sad to exploit and to judge. Many of these lovely young men do this for economic reasons. If you think about it, when they make the decision to make that guick buck, it seems totally unlikely that love ones or anyone in the community would have access to these films. I'm certain at the moment it's like what are the odds?? BUT... with the internet being SO invasive and just so readily availble to see ANYTHING, and Queens being SO SHADY... my heart just goes out them, because they never expected the consequences of making a quick buck. Look before you leap baby

What it is, is a big island with narrow minded people who love to peep into other people's closet.Most of them would be happy to spread the word around. The thing is, allot of them have done the same thing for money, behind closed doors.My heart goes out to these guys. This will surely affect the gay sex scene in the DR.

The saddest thing about this porn is the exploitation. The film makers make millions (literally)over many years off one film, and the "stars" pick up a couple of one-time hundreds. No residuals, no "actors equity," no respect.

this has been going on for ages,gays outing each other. guys who are shady to other gays and when gays find out they are doing the same ole sh*t,they give the T on them.
the saying is, you made your bed, now lay on it!
lol @ my heart going out to them, they are adults, they are not special. they want to be protected ..why ? splain to me lucy?

If being shady and destructive were Olympic sports, we Dominicans would sweep the medals. It pains me to say it, but I have never seen people being so mean to each other as my people are. I think sometimes it has to do with living under a tyranny that molded our national identity (and then it got reinforced throughout the Balaguer years). So this doesn't surprise me. I'm not saying this doesn't happen everywhere. It just seems to be a part of our culture to a degree I haven't found in other places. Of course, it doesn't help that we live in such a tiny place, one on top of the other, especially in the capital.

It's a sad situation but true, when you put your self in any type of film you are taken a huge risk plus putting your self out there for anyone or everyone to seek and tell.There is nonthing more damgerous than a jealous queen with a running mouth like diarrhea,if she can spread negatives things about ANYONE, believe me, she will do it. .However not all of us are like that.But again if a man is living two different life styles and hiding one from his family, then he opens himself to harsh judgement from his own family and community in which he lives.Bless his heart.The botton line is what ever you do make sure you do it in private, keeping a low profile.You know the old saying," LIFES A BITCH THEN YOU DIE" I do not feel thats completely true but it is food for thought.
We are slowly getting back to normal,here in Houston,Tx. the schools open yesterday.Today they open Galveston to those residence who lived in the city proper but not all sorrounding areas are open, many people have nonthing to return too.So the rebuilding has restarted has of today.The hospital is still closed so no emergency services available, schools still closed there has well.Thats a brief update from Jim Here in Houston, Tx.

You will be surprised on how stupids are these bugarrones,having an extensive collection “sexcapades “ videos myself, they put little(or no) objection on letting me record them with my camera phone. I’m wondering how much these videos cost in the gay “black” market? I would be rich :)

why are the buggerones being called stupid and the Americanos with the camera phone not being called treacherous? this whole notion of us not being predatory sickens me! Then we blame those who have been victimized, after we swear that they're worth every dollar that we paid them!!! c'mon, us Americans should take responsibility too.

i really feel me sometimes very bad with that guys..They do that videos sometimes only for U$100 Dollars!!can u believe it? They dont think in the consecuences, They work hard for the money. Enrique cruz and Papicock for examples ARE full of DOMINICANS HAVING SEX..BUT IF U TRY TO ACCESS TO THAT WEBS FROM DR UR ACCESS WILL BE DENIED. Coincidences?

Yes. I love to see the guys from the DR, but it is terrible that their covers get blown. I know of one guy who is so hot and sexy. I know he has a wife and 2 beautiful daughers. He is on full display on EnriqueCruz. I talked with him this past week about it and he says he regrets it so much. His wife has not found out, but so many other people where he lives have in deed found out. He is really ashamed, he says that the website producer comes to town flashing money (about $150 - $200) with promises of more money and NO ONE WILL FIND OUT.... Crap! - I think that the worse of them all is the guy from JORGESGANG.

I love dominican men and I find them sexy, but I dont exploit them, I dont film them and I always respect them. I know that they are doing what they can for a fast buck to pay the bills and eat. So many of them who we think are so HOT are that because they are often Straight with families.

We should just STOP exploting them.

Happy to hear that you have an escort service.I have always suggested that there should be one, as long as the escorts have been screened and are trustworthy.I sometimes find it adventurous, and risky to meet men at a bar or on the street. How does one contact your service?

exploitation? almost everybody I know love porn and love to see good looking guys, where do they think they get the guys from? All of these guys are someone brother, son, husband or friend. Please stop being hypocrites, we all know how these guys got exposed, and we know it was their mothers searching gay porn sites. It was some fucking fag finding the fotos or movies and only want to create drama. And as far as poor DR guys they knew exactly what they was doing and most likely they got paid, so what is the fucking problem grow up, because I know porn gay and str8 is still being made their.
