Porn actor says straight directors shunned him for doing gay porn

A former adult film actor has said the industry is homophobic.

Christopher Zeidschegg, who spent a decade performing under the alias Danny Wylde, has spoken out about being shunned for doing gay sex scenes.

Zeidschegg, who says he’s attracted to both men and women, claims straight bosses dislike ‘crossover’ actors who have done both gay and straight porn.

He told The Independent that after taking part in group sex sessions with both men and women, where all performers were tested, he almost got blacklisted from working with girls from several agencies.

It’s partly to do with different sexual health expectations, adult film industry bosses say.

Most straight porn requires frequent STI testing but no condom use, whereas gay porn requires condoms but no testing.

However Zeidschegg claims that that’s a cover for what is, actually, just homophobic attitudes.

“When I listened to many people talk about why they were against ‘crossover’ performers, it seemed to have more to do with homophobia than anything else.

“But whatever. People have the right to have sex with whoever they want.

“If my attraction to men bums someone out, we don’t have to have sex,” he says.

He subsequently left the adult film industry after he suffered from a prelonged erection from becoming reliant on the use of erectile dysfunction medication.

Germany recently had a shock, when it discovered one of its spies was a former gay porn star.

Meanwhile an American gay adult film actor made the surprising decision to vote for Donald Trump – for a very strange reason.
