Gay America: Sex Sells

Bcalla_FW15_01

I’m about 55 hours away from the end of my Kickstarter campaign and I’m currently being showered with love…
Time will tell whether that love will also be accompanied by $$$$

During this process, I’ve been approached by a number of people who have told me I should try doing something more in the vein of what people want and as I get more attention steer towards the work I want. The only problem is… I don’t want to do that. Don’t get me wrong, I like sex and naked bodies as much as anyone else, but I only want to include nudity in sex in my work and advertising, if it’s part of the show, if that’s part of the story I am telling.

Today my newsfeed was filled with posts about Colby Does New York and all the attention it is getting. It’s, of course, a different situation, seeing that it’s porn. But, I know damn well, if i created a show and advertised it like this:

everyone and their gay daddy would be there. It can sometimes feel impossible to penetrate the force field of the internet and sex is just about the easiest way to do it. People love sex and even though it’s more accepted as a recreational act than it once was, the fact that so many of us are enslaved by Puritan values and insecurities, pornography has so much power. Don’t get me wrong, I think pornography can be a wonderful thing, I just pray that gay male porn stars don’t consume the gay market. And I don’t want to have to take off my clothes to get attention, when my work is good. I’m not opposed to taking off my clothes, but again that’s dependent on the project.

My Kickstarter has gotten a G Philly Article

A Philly Weekly Article

And a fucking Huffington Post Article

I’m hours away and I’m going to hope that the work will get me through this home stretch.
