  1. This is satire, yes?

    If this is legit, I will definitely support it. Good to see someone in the industry kicking in to help.

  3. Erm….

    Don’t really know what to say about this.

  4. I’m conflicted.

    On the one hand it’s good to see a company giving back to the LGBT community, on the other hand it’s playing into the hands of all those who criticize us for being obsessed with sex.

    This is going a little over the top, and it’s painting us in a very bad light.

    It’s a sad state of affairs when the only company actively supporting the LGBT community in Russia is a porn studio.

    It would have been far better if the company had done this without attaching porn to it.

    This is potentially more damaging to the LGBT community worldwide than a help to those being victimized in Russia.

    1. yeah, so says ‘Bloke Toys’!

    2. I think people are aware that gay porn exists and that every gay man will watch gay porn regardless of how “sex obsessed” he may be like other men, porn is not dirty or sleazy unless you’ve been raised to think it’s dirty and sleazy. As far as I’m concerned it would be a great job !

        My thoughts exactly. I can see how pornography can make this good cause look bad, but men in general like to watch porn.

    3. I agree , it’s just playing into the Russians hands

    4. You’re conflicted and also a hypocrite…….

      because obviously linked to a website like this…….

      Only the vote of romanians can make this happen. Your government wont care what the outside world want when most countries don’t support it (yet)

      1. I think that in Romania as a very minimum they should have Civil Partnerships / Unions with totally equal rights. When the society is ready, if not already, they should go for equal marriage.

        As the EU have made it clear to Romania, they must recognise same-sex relationships in law, the last debate was in April 2013. They don’t have to recognise it as marriage, yet, but they do have to provide recognition – it’s not optional, Romania can be taken to the ECHR if they fail to act. Must as I would say it should be equal marriage, period, some very conservative countries will need longer to adjust. As a Romanian you are free to relocate to the UK if you wanted, although I don’t know if you’d have to become a UK citizen, in which case I believe that takes a long time.

    2. Noble but off-topic.

  6. The profits are going to a very good and worthy cause, so personally speaking, I dont think it matters one bit just where the money is coming from.

  7. I don’t have an issue with that, I’m non-judgmental. It doesn’t harm me, nor anyone else, and if it helps a good cause all the better. I think it’s a great idea.

    I would never judge anyone for working in the sex industry – I’m more likely to judge people who deliberately try to harm other people, in whatever way that is. We need more love, less hate.

    Why am I reminded of John Lennon in bed with Yoko for Peace?

  9. So the message is to exchange Russian political repression for American sexual exploitation?

  10. When it’s based in Los Angeles, why the guys in picture are czech?

    If this is legit, I’m all for it. It’s he first time that I’ve heard of anyone supporting LGBT refugees from Russia. That’s an issue that we must address, as I doubt that we’ll get Russia’s homophobic laws repealed any time soon. With many Russians that I speak to saying that the West is promoting paedophilia and bestiality, I doubt that a little gay porn could make things worse. A point of clarification: we can’t openly make donations to Russian LGBT organisations or they will face huge fines for being “foreign agents.” These guys claim that their profits will help those lucky enough to escape Putin’s reign of terror.
