sinking ship for adios gay porn studios

Adios Gay Porn Studios! Although they will continue to exist, the pandemic has taught us how little we do need them. 

A catalyzing pandemic

As many analysts have observed, a lot of the “new normal” caused by the pandemic is actually not new. As they noticed, Covid-19 has accelerated numerous trends that had already been developing for a long time. 

Clearly, one of those trends is the explosion of independent gay porn production. Here, this blogger has a confession to make: I have never seen straight porn. Perhaps we could drop “Gay” out of “Adios Gay Porn Studios”. Although it is reasonable to infer that gay porn mirrors trends in the broader porn industry, we do not know.

Therefore, we will stay in familiar ground. One one hand, we have been highlighting the raise of independent gay porn productions. On the other hand, the pandemic has forced conventional studios into a hiatus. Now, most gay porn consumers have been exposed to the excellent work coming from performers’ bedrooms. Do you think they will go back?

In front of the pandemic, the lack of physical resources that was a disadvantage for independent creators has become an asset. They do not have to deal with the logistic challenges and regulations that comes with a business operation like a conventional porn factory. They are now the ones creating new inspirational materials for our masturbatory sessions.

Adios Gay Porn Studios

I am bored for adios gay porn studios

Despite the relatively numerous resources of gay porn studios, they had bored us long before the pandemic started. And this is the major point we are trying to make. Out of all the flaws that many porn industry stakeholders have been highlighting, it is poor quality and lack of creativity what inspires us to say “adios gay porn studios”.

Indeed, a lot of performers have complained about exploitative studio practices. Also, about discrimination against Performers of Color, or even against Bottom Performers. However, I do not think we can blame the studios themselves for these questionable practices.

Do not misunderstand me. We must call out exploitation, any kind of abuse, and any kind of class discrimination when we see it. Nevertheless, we cannot expect the studios to be not contaminated by the broader context. As long as we live in an Individualistic Capitalist system, as long as our culture is White Male Supremacist, gay porn studios will continue to operate like any other business. Unavoidably, they will continue exploiting workers and discriminating against stigmatized groups. 

As a porn consumer, I may not know that these practices exist in the industry. Or like in my case, I may know, but yet it is easy to forget the dark side of porn when you are looking for a bust. What you cannot ignore is the lack of creativity. We cannot not see how bad their products are when we are looking for our boner, and our boner never arrives.

Really? Adios Gay Porn Studios?

Obama gif not really

No, not really. As far as I can imagine, there will always be a place for conventional porn businesses. First of all, this blogger is not representative of anything and anyone. I am sure many porn consumers still prefer studio porn. When I say “Adios Gay Porn Studios”, I mean a farewell out of my own Pornuniverse. (And yours, if you are a fan)

However, I still plan to check now and then studio porn. Even if their talent hunting power is not anymore what used to be, they could still discover new hotties. Besides, although less and less, sometimes a inspiring to me flick comes from a studio. 

Finally, there is one more reason that ensures gay studios survival. It is just a fact, not all porn performers have the drive and the talent to be independent producers. Indeed, becoming your own brand is extremely intensive hard work, in an extremely competitive market. Porn is not different than other fields, most people do not seem to be fit to be their own boss. 

Not only this guarantees gay porn studios survival, but also our support to gay porn studios. We may not watch the over produced crap coming from them, but we will always support a source of legitimate income for adult entertainers and sex workers.

Still, we insist. Adios Gay Porn Studios, welcome independent talent. Let me give you some clues about where the real stuff is.

The Shabazz Revolution

Rhyheim Shabazz with pillow he is risen

One of the major forces coming up in the industry has been Rhyheim Shabazz. Believe it or not, no one knew who Big Bro was in January 2019. 

Back then, I actually thought we were living a studio revival. Independent performers, after initial enthusiasm with OnlyFans, were getting tired, boring and repetitive. That is exactly when Rhyheim arrived and proved me wrong. I would not be saying “Adios Gay Porn Studios” without Rhyheim’s raising.

Although he started his porn life as a Tim Tales exclusive model, most of his production has been independent. And since his exclusive contract ended, he has filmed only one scene for a conventional porn factory.

Not only he has taken market from the studios by means of his exceptional talent. Besides, he has actively promoted other independent creators. Have you not noticed his modus operandi? When he films with little known, talented independent performers, besides investing all his massive influence on promoting them, he also gives them time to first broadcast the collaboration in their own outlets. 

Furthermore, he seems to be moving into actively mentoring independent creators. He has already been doing it in Los Angeles, but apparently went a step further in his last Brazilian expedition. Big Bro has twitted several clips where he seems to be teaching.

Indeed, this is the first step you must take before yelling “Adios Gay Porn Studios!”. Join Rhyheim’s fans pages. Additionally to gaining access to the best adult entertainer in the world, you will meet a parade of beautiful, talented porn artists. Check his Twitter for the previews.

Of course, after recommending Rhyheim we must follow with Eyefilmz. These two porn artists developed a powerful creative partnership. I wonder whether or not Big Bro’s rocketing ascension would have been as fast as it was without his camera man. We never thought about abandoning the studios until we saw what these two porn geniuses could deliver when working together.

In our opinion, there is no better video maker in the Pornuniverse right now. If there is one essential requirement for producing good porn, that would be a deep understanding of the sexual experience. Clearly, Eyefilmz knows what to look at and where to lure us to.

As demonstrated by Rhyheim, the key for independent creators’ success is in strong and frequent collaboration. Eyefilmz has become probably the first camera man looked after for any performer who wants to treat his followers with premium, professional, artistic videography. His last work with Chino Blac is a good example.

With no hesitation we recommend joining his fans page and following his social media in Twitter and Instagram. Similarly to following Rhyheim, you will enjoy powerful porn experiences. And at the same time you will be introduced to some of the best talent in the Pornosphera.

The Brazilians

“Adeus estudos” could also be a suitable headline for this post. Our admiration and our fondness for Brazilians and their sex affirmative mindset are well known. 

However, most of our knowledge of Brazilian porn talent came from local gay porn studios and incursions made by USA and European conventional gay porn factories. Apparently, this is about to change.

We mentioned before how Rhyheim is not only standing out as an independent porn powerhouse. Besides, he is promoting and mentoring other performers to help them become more independent from gay studios exploitation. 

Recently, Rhyheim summoned 15 Brazilian performers. Some of them have a long history in the conventional porn industry. Some of them are newbies with a developing social media following. All of them were treated as no studio have ever treated them before. At least, that is what they (not Rhyheim) are telling me.

They were hosted in single rooms in international hotels in Rio. They were repeatedly tested for COVID19 and all of their expenses were covered. The whole group was hosted in a luxurious villa in Buzios for 5 days. Out of those five days, 3 were devoted to collaborate for their own porn outlets, with Big Bro advising and training them on how to produce premium video. Only the last two days, Rhyheim took over and had them working for him.

The whole event was extraordinary. If anyone ever writes a History of Independent Pornography, this Buzios event will be highlighted as a landmark.

Krave Melanin

Although Rhyheim is the living proof of the wide possibilities available for independent creators to explore, his model can be a little bit intimidating. After all, he is an exceptional adult entertainment artist. Trying to emulate his success could be frustrating and impossible for most performers.

However, we can still say “Adios Gay Porn Studios” even without Big Bro. Krave Melanin is another example of independent talent. Although he has built his career combining performances for conventional studios with independent collaborations, his best production comes with no question from the latter.

Fortunately, Krave demonstrates that there are more than just one path to success in the independent market. Unlike Big Bro, he is more shy and less prolific. Nevertheless, Mr. Melanin has found the way to build a prestigious and powerful brand without exclusive contracts with traditional studios. 

Not only he is less prolific than Big Bro, but more “monogamous” oriented. Indeed, he has produced a lot of porn from collaborations with other adult performers, but a very significant portion of his work comes from his partnership with Ryder Jay

Trust me. Join his fans page, follow his Twitter, and you will be masturbating with one hand and, with the other, waving “Adios Gay Porn Studios”!

Clearly, there are paths to success for independent porn creators into more conventional practices. Ironically, they are actually harvesting from a field sown by less conventional artists.

Independent porn channels had been used by alternative performers a long time before they became mainstream. Porn studios would work mostly with vanilla sex and its more popular kinky deviations, like leather and bondage. Those into “niche” practices have always had less options coming from traditional studios.

Therefore, they were the pioneers to build their own brand using social media and independent channels. As an example, Caged Jock stands out.

He became a Tumblr star by himself years ago. From Tumblr, he moved to JustForFans and OnlyFans and started frequent collaborations with performers of all kinds, and practices for all tastes.

Just as I recommend to follow Rhyheim and Eyefilmz as gates to a plethora of young talent, I recommend Caged Jock as a gate to niche practices and performers. 

And there are many, many more

Of course, these are not the only artists we enjoy and recommend. If we did not have many talented performers producing hot material independently, we would not be able to sing “Adios Gay Porn Studios”.

Some of them have never worked for traditional porn factories. Others combined work for the studios with independent collaborations, in different proportions. As an illustration, you can pick your favorite guys from this list: Chino Blac, Phatrabbit, Max Konnor, Küper, Judas King, Jimmy West, Badkid, Chris Fadded, Max Avila, Pablo Bravo, Porfi, James Ant, Brock Banks, Alex Latin, Armani Flex, Elijah Zayne, and many more. 

With no hesitation, we recommend to follow any of them instead of waisting your time on porn coming from the studios. That list is actually longer, but so long that there is no way we can produce an exhaustive catalogue of independent talent in just one post.

If you share my preferences, let’s chant together “Adios Gay Porn Studios”. And let’s get extra lube.

Meanwhile, you should know we also are an independent blog. You can read us for free, but it would be great if you want to support us by joining our JFF.
