Gay-for-pay is an insinuative term used more commonly with male (and, less frequently, female) actors, pornographic stars, or sex workers that identify as heterosexual but are paid to act or perform gay professionally. The term has also applied to other professions and even companies with the same core concerns and criticism in place. The stigma of being gay or labeled as such has steadily eroded since the Stonewall riots began the modern gay rights movement in 1969. Through the 1990s, mainstream movie and television actors have been more willing to portray homosexuality, as the threat of any backlash against their careers has lessened and society's acceptance of gay and lesbian people has increased
In the gay pornography industry, which uses amateurs as well as professional actors, gay-for-pay refers to actors labeled or believed to be straight who do gay sex scenes. Some actors who are actually gay or bisexual will be marketed as straight to appeal to the "allure of the unattainable", because straight men (or those newly coming out) are virgins to sex with other men, and "as in most gay male settings, the young, the muscular, and the unfamiliar are more sought."
Critics object to the term because many people define sexual orientation by which gender one is attracted to regardless of which gender one has sex with. OthersI like the latter, that it promotes internalized homophobia and that being straight is more desirable. Also I believe that these men are really bi or gay. And if they are really str8 then they are only using us to make money. Since they can make more in gay porn then they would in str8 porn where it's the women who make the most in those movies.

So most of these so-called gay for pay model are really closet faggots that don't have the nerve to stand up and say that I LOVE COCK.
In gay pornographic movies, actors who identify themselves as heterosexual, but who nevertheless perform explicit sexual acts with other males on film (see Ryan Idol, Clay Maverick, Mike Branson, Jeff Stryker, Wolf Hudson, Peter North, etc.) do not face the same stigmas as the mainstream acting counterparts and indeed can rise quickly to being featured actors.
I remember the how Ryan Idol only would suck a dick after receive and undisclosed amount of money. Then Peter North, aka Matt Ramsey who started in gay porn. I also believe that he claims that he never bottom at all, funny that I have a video of him getting fuck by Rick D. Jeff Stryker was the most cockiness asshole in gay porn, he still is today, though he no longer perform. I believe there was one a boycott against his movies in the 80's.
