Christian ‘ex-gay’ porn actor returns to complain about ‘gay bowel syndrome’

A Christian ‘ex-gay’ former porn actor who previously claimed that anal sex causes gay men to give birth to the devil has returned, this time complaining that he is a former sufferer of “gay bowel syndrome”.

The former porn actor Joseph Sciambra, reflects on his time in gay porn films in a new interview with the Catholic World Report.

“Porn is an addiction, and it is progressive. It is comparable to being addicted to drugs,” Sciambra says. “When I became part of the homosexual culture, I found it was a society founded on porn. Porn in the gay world is what glued us together.”

“We acted it,” he continues. “We’d go to bars to get picked up, and have sex in bathrooms, on bar stools, on dance floors, and in bath houses. In my day, Mission Dolores Park was a big place where people would go to have sex. I believe it still is. When I go to minister there, I see used condoms on the ground … We meet and have sex on the ‘first date,’ but it really wasn’t a date. We were very ‘porn-ized’ as gay men.”

He goes on to say: “When I was in the gay lifestyle, I was constantly sick,” he says. “I had chlamydia, gonorrhea, gay bowel syndrome, yeast infections—you name it.”

“Beyond the physical symptoms, there are the emotional problems,” Sciambra continues.

“Boys who involve themselves in the gay lifestyle are emotionally wounded … They join the gay community with an earnest desire for love. That’s why I did. But they get used up pretty quick. There are older people waiting for young people to come because they want to have sex with them. The young people then become scarred, bitter, and hostile.”

Sciambra has, since leaving the gay porn world, written a book called ‘Swallowed By Satan’, in which he reflects in more depth on his experiences.

In his original video, Sciambra who formerly appeared in gay porn for many years says that after finding God, he sought hospitalisation following damage caused to his rectum that meant he had to have his “sphincters almost stitched shut.”
