BREAKING Falcon Studios Gay Porn Star Josh Weston **DEAD**

Falcon Studios announced it this AM

There is no official word on the cause of his death, but I am sure that we will soon be getting more information as this story develops.

See link for more info

Drugs or suicide.

by Anonymousreply 112/18/2012

That's a given, r1.

Probably suicide by drug overdose, for added effect.

by Anonymousreply 212/18/2012

it is so weird to see these incredibly gorgeous gay men die in such situations,i just can't believe they don't have some loving and caring man by their side.

if only one of them gave me a second glance i swear i would always love them and care and and....

it is so disheartening to see that looks can't buy love or a partner.

or did they just never want one?

i just don't understand,and sometimes i start feeling angry and hateful towards other gay men,i just feel like they are all selfish and uncaring,just use a handsome man and toss him aside...

you know what i mean?

I've seen more tan vampires than him. I thought he really had a creepy look.

His last porn movies were bareback a couple of years ago, so I assume that his death may be AIDS related and for me that includes drug overdose and suicide (depression). Or he was really afraid of becoming 40 and pretty much invisible in the shallow youth and hot body obsessed part of the gay community.

yes i did overstate that it was US,but even one gay man who dares to write such disgusting vile trash about another one is part of the homophobia problem.

i do get bitter and have written some horrid crap about us as a group,but never about a struggling gay man personally.

If he hadn't been taking medication regularly, r40, his HIV could have progressed to AIDS. There are many reasons people don't take the meds regularly, like their very high cost (especially in the US) and side effects.

by Anonymousreply 4112/18/2012

You're mean, r42.

by Anonymousreply 4412/18/2012

R40 --- your comment is SPOT on. THAT is the message that needs to be clarified.

Even though the numbers might be lower than in the past, people ARE still dying from 'HIV complications'

Someone featured in the film 'How To Survive The Plague' also recently died (he was 44). See the link.

People need to realize that this isn't 'chronic' and that there can still be more 'complications'. And meds, etc don't necessarily guarantee someone will live 'to a ripe old age'.

Raising that awareness will help others to avoid being infected as much as possible.

I hope it was Josh Weston and his family's choice to make sure that 'HIV related complications' was released as his 'cause of death'. People need that wake up call as much as possible.

R56, yeah, he would only do bareback porn. Bottom and Top.

He was still hooking too, and god knows if he ever disclosed his status to clients.

I used to think he was super-hot. But after the "breeding" videos started, I was disgusted by him. And that's how they marketed that shit, too.

"Weston had been doing bareback movies for over four years. He died of complications related to HIV."

Sad that he spent his last years intentionally killing himself time and again with every unprotected anal sex act. Yeah, yeah, I know it was his choice. But it's an unwise, deadly decision that I'll just never understand. An accident is one thing; caught up in the passion of the moment, okay I understand. But intentionally putting yourself in harms way again and again? No, I don't get it.

RIP.

by Anonymousreply 5912/19/2012

Like, duh. Of course POOR HIV patients die AIDS related deaths (including death caused by the HIV medication) while the rich men and women can afford the proper care and medicine to keep HIV at bay and most likely not die an AIDS related death.

Once teenagers and young adults from non-rich families got HIV they are on a downward spiral of financial and emotional dispair where they need to take jobs that pay under the table so they are still elegible for State funded healthcare (because in this economy nobody can afford to pay and for HIV medicines and still pay rent, proper food, etc.). That's their future.

I am still surprised that HIV/AIDS organisations don't make big campaign deal about people having to kiss their future financially wealthy dreams goodbye just because of one fateful night with (booze, drugs, and) condomless sex. I am sure a great deal of materialistic teenagers would think twice before they bareback when they find out how many PLay Stations of the latest release they could buy for the same amount they have to spend on HIV medication on a monthly basis. That and dealing with rampant self loathing issues would significantly lower the numbers of new HIV transmition cases.

by Anonymousreply 6012/19/2012

I see R60's point, but at the same time I don't find it plausible that poorer people, in the US at least, don't have SOME access to HIV meds. Surely either Medicaid or nonprofits that assist gays in need cover the expense? The drugs themselves aren't THAT expensive nowadays, particularly considering how many millions of Africans are kept healthy thanks to Western aid (in the form of HIV meds).

by Anonymousreply 6112/19/2012

R61, Mary! What planet are you from? Depending on what state you live in, there is a waiting list for free meds. The current price for the average HIV pos person is $2000 - $4000 per month. The prices have not gone down. There are just more of them.

The drugs are cheaper in Africa because the drug companies in America sell them at about 1 dollar a pill while charging 25 per pill in the states.

If the state is gay friendly like California or NY then yes, you probably will find help, but in a lot of fly over states, your Shit out of luck.

You're a fuckin' liar. I work with a gay organization and I HAVE NEVER, repeat NEVER had to wait more than two weeks to get someone QUALIFIED for free antiretrovirals.

The people that say you can't get them simply are too cheap to pay for them.

I have people come in and they are making $50,000 a year and want free meds. They can't and by right, shouldn't be able to get them. They need to stop and think before getting a 100% preventable disease what the cost will be.

If make 50K a year then you can afford it.

But no, they want to have cable, Internet, fancy cars, vacations AND FREE MEDS.

Sorry it don't work that way. If you can afford that, you can just cut out the luxuries and buy the AIDS meds

by Anonymousreply 6512/19/2012

I just looked him up out of curiosity on IAFD. He did regular porn from 2002-2007, then went to bareback 2008-2009, then disappeared. Now dead.

I watched one of his bareback porn scenes. He was getting gang-banged in a sling. He had signs of "poz face" in Datalounge parlance.

I guess we each (gay men) have to pick our paths re: hedonism, self-protection, lust and restraint. This guy picked his. Sorry if that sounds harsh.

A well-known pornstar with a body like Weston could have had his pick of wealthy sugar daddies to take care of him. Why he was still hooking and doing bb porn, rather than living in the lap of luxury, is mind-boggling to me.

by Anonymousreply 7512/19/2012

I have a friend who's done a ton of porn and escorting, and he's yet to score himself a sugar daddy. He almost had one at one point, but the minute the guy figured out he was only wanted for his money, my friend got the boot. Then I have an ex bf who's never done porn but somehow gravitates towards (and successfully snags) rich men to take care of him. Weird.

by Anonymousreply 7812/19/2012

R78, not weird at all. Imagine you're a rich sugar-daddy type who wants sex off a menu: you hire a rentboy. Easy.

Instead, imagine you're a rich sugar-daddy type who wants to settle down with a nice drama-free younger hunk who also wants to settle down. You'd look for that in a distinctly different population pool than the porn/rentboy world - in fact you'd want to exclude that world.

R96, that's the stereotype from several decades ago.

Today the profile and language are changed, and it's like nobody ever dies from "AIDS". The language instead is: "complications from HIV." And the ill or dying person might not be emaciated. One man I know who is struggling with HIV is stocky/muscular but has messed up looking skin.

by Anonymousreply 10312/20/2012

I couldn't even finish reading the second paragraph of that blog R103 ....unfortunately, one of his biggest problems is probably "Who is Craig Reynolds ?".

I've never heard of him and when you think of the average movie having anywhere from six to eight performers, obviously they aren't *all* pushed as 'stars' and some of them probably do 'fall through the cracks'.

He talks about not getting hired anymore, etc .... it's tough when what you think is your 'career' ends up not going anywhere and you end up doing the 'side jobs' of escorting, etc instead.

Very depressing life overall, I am sure (but who knows what was going on in their life before they started in the porn/escort biz).

No judgement at all intended.

by Anonymousreply 10412/20/2012

Noting that he engaged in BB for some time,perhaps with others who were also poz at the time thinking that there was no additional threat or risk. Not true! As a virus, HIV mutates at specific rate so that HIV has multiple variants. So one can get a second and perhaps more virulent variant, with dreadful results. This is also the reason it has been a challenge to develop an effective vaccine. HIV education is still deficient in the gay community. After 30 years of this plague it's a pity that people take risks without an idea of consequences. Poor soul.

So sick of hearing about the lack of education. This disease has been around for 30+ years. I find it hard to believe that there's anyone who doesn't know how it's spread. The real problem in the gay world is lack of self-control when it comes to sex and drugs (which obviously lower one's ability to make rational decisions), but people are afraid to address this issue out of fear of being labeled non-PC, sex-negative, or self-loathing/homophobic.
