Gay Porn Actor Dror Barak Dead At 38, Suicide

Gay porn actor Dror Barak, 38, was found dead of an apparent suicide in his Manhattan home earlier this week. A former member of the Israeli military and an employee at the United Nations, Barak, who performed under the name Roman Ragazzi, was outed as a porn performer by a New York City tabloid in 2007. I wrote at the time:

In a seemingly pointless move, the New York Post's Page Six gossip column has outed an employee of the Israeli consulate at the United Nations as a gay porn actor, after tricking administrative worker Dror Barak into revealing his sideline career as a "model" and budding porn actor. Although Barak specified that he did not escort, he did solicit a plane ticket from Page Six's source. Page Six then called Barak at the U.N., asking to speak to "Roman Ragazzi", Barak's porn handle. Barak immediately resigned his position with the Israeli consulate. Page Six published the exchange today, including revealing Barak's BigMuscle.com profile name.

I can look to see who someone was, but no matter how hot, no way I could fap to that scene -- a suicide especially, although, AIDS related -- "Could this have been the scene that did him in?" Who's the young one who is now poz in porn? He did bareback tons of times. No way I can watch that now.

Gay men can be so shallow and vapid, they think having good looks is the msot important thing in life.

In the gay community, it doesn't matter how messed up, miserable, or depressed you are in the head as long as you have a six pack and an 8 inch dick.

This had nothing to do with his being outed. That's completely absurd. That happened YEARS ago. He became a "porn star" afterwards, by his own choice. He recently retired and started up an online fitness site, with his 18 year old lover who was also in porn. The business presumably did not do well? Who knows. Guys in porn tend to be drug addicts, and he may also have had AIDS. We know that porn tends to collect performers with mental health issues, so one presumes he may have had issues there too.

I used to see this guy all of the time in my neighborhood. I remember he used to work out at 19th st. Gym way back when I was there. He used to have a smaller build and was really hot. Then he blew up, I am guessing steroids. He kind of lost his looks and started looking a bit monsterish. I would see his ads on craigslist advertising his personal training and making the point that he was NOT an escort. I just remember him as a rabid jump roper.

I thought he was hot and thought he was just being aloof with during any interaction I had with him. He was one of those guys who seemed to live a life with people I would never be a part of. But I guess you never know. In retrospect, he did seem kind of quiet and sad.

Porn has always been about the hottest,latest thing to come along. But once you're not new anymore,they spit you right out! I remember when 'Gage' from SC first came along-he was so fresh and young,with a nice,pint-sized hairy body and great built. Then he morphed into 'Vance"at Chaosmen and started to do bareback or 'raw'scenes.Now he seems to have fallen off the porn map completely.

I know people wonder why such hot guys turn to porn,but it appears alot of them are from small towns and have supressed their sexuality and really feel liberated by doing full on porn. But it's hard to be anonymous once you've had sex over the internet.I remember hearing about Collin O'Neal being fired from his teaching job once his career in porn was discovered.

He didn't "lose his job",109. Where did you get that nonsense? It was HIS fitness business, HIS website. That isn't the reason he killed himself. If you're talking about the embassy job, that was years ago. He had a minor job there anyway.

As far as his porn persona, he started his fitness biz as "Roman fitness", using his porn star name and persona. So he obviously wasn't that ashamed of it.

It's more likely to have been drugs, or illness. Most porn stars who killed themselves did it either to escape a serious drug addiction or because of HIV/AIDS.

[quote]They're "ugly" and are "miserable" and "suicidal" because people judge them on their looks as opposed to their character. Yet, they can't comprehend why a "hot" guy who is solely judged on his looks would be miserable and suicidal.

I can't understand why you can't comprehend the question. Or why you think those two OPPOSITE things are the same?

I think it had to do more with depression. The kid was getting gangbanged, no? That screams loneliness to me.

Maybe he did become HIV+. That has never caused a hustler to lose his job, but if he was depressed out of loneliness and discovered he became positive, maybe he thought his chances at happiness were done?

Maybe Mossad killed him

Look...a lot of people in porn have mental health issues. Maybe all of them. Who gets drawn to this in the first place, particularly when most of it is actually just advertising for 'escorting'? I've known people who were in porn and escorted, and they weren't exactly people with healthy boundaries and a functional set of life skills. They were self pitying, depressed, lonely people who were desperate for attention and affirmation. There's a lot of empty narcissism there. You here a lot of politics about the 'sex-positive' nature of 'sex work', and it's bullshit. Most prostitutes are not happy, fulfilled people, and neither are people in porn. There's a lot of drugs, a lot of alcohol, a lot of dysfunction. So someone committing suicide is not that unexpected. These guys are not exactly out and proud and self affirming. They are generally pretty miserable and they hate most other gay men.

[quote]I used to see this guy all of the time in my neighborhood. I remember he used to work out at 19th st. Gym way back when I was there. He used to have a smaller build and was really hot. Then he blew up, I am guessing steroids. He kind of lost his looks and started looking a bit monsterish... I just remember him as a rabid jump roper

Yeah, I was at 19th St. when he was there, too, and later on at David Barton Gym. I must have joined after you because I always remembered him as monster-sized. There's a point where too much muscle is almost as bad as too much fat, and he was well into that zone.

Never spoke to him in all those years, but then, I never saw him talk to anyone else either. Obviously, he was distinctive enough to remember.

But I don't ever remember seeing him jump rope.

Porn guys at the gym are really weird. They put off this vibe: "Don't LOOK at me!"

No, honey. I don't have to look at you. I've practically seen your colon.

We performed many un-natural acts while looking at his pictures and imagining him sitting on our face!!!!

You guys have GOT to go and read the Qwip comments about this! Talk about clutching pearls!! One guy says that this "humanizes the face of suicide"! I almost did a 'Danny Thomas spit take'! (Because, you know, the 'It Gets Better Campaign' did nothing towards that end, but this one steroided porn queen will end suicide forever!). Another Mary goes on about what a wonderful person he was...I guess he could tell, from watching him rim people in pron, that he was a cross between Mother Theresa and Ghandi. You won't get a better laugh today.

Unless you are under 30 and drop dead gorgeous OR you have 10 inches or more - the Hershey Highway is truly the road to misery.

For someone like you, Miss r121, the only solutia is to marry a fish. Fish are not particular about physical perfectia or pinga size and you may even find you enjoy being in a Lesbian relatiaship!
