Here’s an abridged version of the Bill In Exile post, because there’s only so much room for whining here.
Well, I’m sitting here right now both slack jawed and dumbfounded because I just got an email…from porn model Samuel Colt . . . .wait, excuse me . . . “Samuel Colt, Mustang Studios Exclusive Performer” in which Mr. Colt asked me to remove his real life first name from a post I put up a couple days ago that featured his BF Chris Porter and some dildos.
Now, for my money I can’t really see how the use of just a first name can be problematic for these fucking people — I mean, it’s not as if there’s a single fucking person in the entire world with actively firing neurons in their brain housing group who actually believes that Samuel Colt® is the guys real name or anything. And it’s just a first name fer fucks sake. But hey, if it bothers him I’m cool with that…
Ha ha. No you’re not. If you were “cool” with that, you wouldn’t be carrying on like this. Carry on:
…and so I removed it from the post..I mean, I use my entire name — first middle and last — on this porn blog of mine, and maybe that makes me less sensitive about the use of a single first name when I should be more sensitive.
No, all that makes you is a porn blogger. And one of the unspoken rules of being a porn blogger is that you don’t publish porn stars’ names. It’s done as a professional courtesy for a variety of reasons. If you can’t do that, don’t act surprised when porn stars ask you to stop doing it. Also, who the fuck cares? I want to know how well a porn star fucks, not his name.
But here’s where Mr. Colt jumped straight past pathetic and into the pesky pit of patheeshness with both feet — see, I know the guy.
I know him from well before he ever got naked in front of the camera to make porn movies. I knew him when he worked at Hot House Entertainment in the Creative Department where you could find him pecking away at his computer under the watchful eye of his boss HH Brent, the Hot House VP of Creative. In fact, I sat with him and his ex BF at the same table at the GayVN Awards a couple years ago where the three of us traded shots of tequila all night. And yet he sends me an email asking me to remove his real first name from the post that I wrote and he signs his fucking email to me not with his real name, BUT WITH HIS PORN NAME!!! Oy!
The only thing sadder than a porn blogger writing about his porn star friendships in order to make himself look cool or like someone on the “inside” is a porn blogger writing about his failed porn star friendships. Yikes.
