Self-proclaimed "social media guru," former Andrew Christian employee, and, as of recently, Next Door Studios director Brad Hammer just did a post for the HuffPo on a subject he says is "rarely discussed." That subject would be gay-for-pay porn stars.

Where has Brad been on the internet that he thinks this subject is "rarely discussed"? For god's sake, they may as well be talking about it on Ellen, and they probably have. Tyra covered it on her show, oh, five years ago. And I'm pretty sure the gay-for-pay thing been argued about in comments on gay blogs since there was such a thing as a gay blog. Prior to that it was in porn forums.

Everyone has an opinion! But Brad, for his part, is new to this stuff, and he's "worked with close to 25 gay-for-pay porn stars in the past four months." As he sort of awkwardly puts it, "If sexuality is a black and white sliding scale then every single shade of grey needs to not be left out." And over at Next Door, there have been plenty of straight dudes on their payroll who really are only there for the money.

There are some guys who I have worked with that have literally thrown up from sucking another man's penis. Then there are some guys who have girlfriends and multiple kids that will take a cock up their ass like a champ. Even so, to say they have to be gay in order to have gay sex is pretty close-minded.

Do they really need the money that bad?

I definitely think money is the number one driving force behind why these straight men have gay sex on film. There are few other jobs where you don't have to have an education or some form of training and be able to make up to $7,000 in only a couple days of work. Of course it is easy for other people to judge another person's decision to do porn, but the guys I have worked with are doing it for money. Money to support their kids, their education, pay off a debt, and money just to live. Besides that I do think everyone has his or her price.

I wonder who "literally" threw up after sucking off another dude. Could it have been Slate Steele just prior to his getting canned? Or maybe one of the boys from that retro pool party, or this bouncy castle scene.

And please tell me it's not sexy Christian Cayden who has the wife and multiple kids. He seems to like it up the ass a whole lot, and I really don't want to think of him with a chick.

Next up: Brad Hammer will tackle the controversial and all too rarely discussed topic of bareback porn and the dangers of HIV.
