Gay porn star Calvin Banks has opened up about his dad sexually abusing him in a candid new interview.

US-based porn star Banks, who works for CockyBoys, said his father started abusing him when he was eight years old.



The star discussed how his father abused him in an interview with gay porn channel Himeros.tv, while he was on a retreat in Vermont.

In the video, which has since been removed from YouTube, Banks explained that he visited his father at weekends because his parents were divorced.

He said that he only understood that what his father did to him was sexual abuse when he confided in his mum, who questioned him after she found Banks in bed with his cousin.

“My dad was my first blowjob,” says gay porn star

Banks, who had therapy to cope with the abuse, said: “I can now comfortably say my dad was my first blowjob.

“I gotta laugh about it.

“I have friends whose dads left when they were two years old. I joke with them, I say ‘Well, your dad didn’t love you enough, and my dad loved me too much.’”

He said his dad abused him when his sisters were at gymnastics classes.

“Because of the abuse I suffered I became a very sexual child very early on and I often sought out sexual experiences for that reason.”

It is not clear whether Banks’ father faced any legal repercussions for the sexual abuse.

Banks continued: “What he did was absolutely not okay.”

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday (February 6), Banks wrote: “I’ve always been an open book about who I am and what I’ve been through but I’ve never made a point to speak about it.

“I’ve learned from everything that’s happened in my life – my abuse, among others things, has only made me stronger.”

Several studies show that a startlingly large proportion of LGBT+ people are survivors of rape or sexual assault.

In 2010, research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that more than a quarter (26 percent) of gay men and 37 percent of bi men have experienced rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner, compared to nearly three in 10 (29 percent) heterosexual men.
