Arpad Miklos Has Committed Suicide

Now HIM we all knew.

Didn't he say his career was hurt after the video of him having sex with the woman that he did for Straight Guy for the Queer Eye?

by Anonymousreply 202/05/2013

Oh, that makes me very sad. He was one of the most visible and consistently committed performers in gay porn. He always performed beautifully, and had a great body and dick.

He was absolutely ubiquitous--obviously r3 is a woman, because any gay man would know who he is immediately.

I was just chatting with him on Grindr this weekend. We never met. That sounds funny, but just feels kind of strange. He seemed like a genuine and nice person, I'm sad.

Most of these porn actors committing suicide aren't the gay4pay ones. They are the actual bisexual and gay men committing suicide, or abusing drugs and steroids. There is clearly a major, major problem that hasn't been addressed, that needs to be addressed. Arpad was one of the most notable gay porn stars so maybe his death will spur an actual discussion on the emotional and psychological health of these porn actors.

People tend to forget these men are human beings too, and that just like all of us, they're growing up in the same anti-gay world. Add on top of that the condemnation against porn in our society. And the pressures to be young, fit and hunky in the gay community. And how seedy the porn lifestyle is, and how valueless fucking for money is.

It's sad. Something has to be done. Regardless if you agree with porn, another one of our own is dead to suicide. RIP Arpad.

by Anonymousreply 2402/05/2013

Just wanted to say, not saying Arpad was a drug user, or engaged in anything seedy himself. But there are some real issues in the gay porn lifestyle that aren't being talked about that need to be talked about.

Seems like he was a very intelligent man.

I always think people are drawn to porn due to psychological issues, not that the porn work causes them. (It probably doesn't help, and might exacerbate, but doesn't really start them out if they're not already there.)

For god's sake, he was working as a chemist when he was "discovered"--I can't help thinking that there was something in his own psyche that made that career change happen, rather than simply not having any way to make money besides his looks. People who leave behind something stable to basically work in a field based entirely on youth and looks are going to run into trouble in middle age, no matter how well other people think they're aging. The fact is that it's all going to come to an end, and most of your life has been spent relying upon it for material and psychological sustenance. It must be particularly terrible if you actually threw away a lot in order to rely on your looks instead.

Wow! Definitely knew who he was. Porn is a pretty unforgiving business. In theory, it seems like it would be great - you love sex, you get paid to have sex with hot bodied men!! But, there's a lot of things like steroid and drug abuse that unfortunately often go along with it. And, with the internet it's really hard (impossible?) to make money.

And who knows what was going on with him personally - depression, drug issues, etc.

People like r39 are really pathetic. If you don't know or care who he is, why are you on this thread? Is your life so empty you have nothing better to do than go on threads that are of no interest to you?

When I see a thread about someone I don't know or care about, I ignore it.

Well R27, you seem pretty good at talking around a topic. Instead of inticating something someone should speak of, you should speak? What do you know? What do you want to know about?

All you have to do is follow some of these people on Twitter and you can see they're all a bunch of car wrecks.

I quite liked Arpad and chatted with him a couple of times on Big Muscle. It is sad.

Whether you're gay or straight, porn seems to be a dark area.

I see a lot of speculation about why he killed himself (he was an aging porn star, so he must've been seriously depressed), but not a lot of facts. The fact is that we have no idea if porn or something else in his life led to his suicide. A family member or friend could've died, leading to his becoming depressed. Possibly he had a chemical imbalance that could've been treated with the right combo of meds. No one knows why he committed this act, but it could very well have absolutely nothing to do with his chosen profession. Your speculation shows how little you know about the gay porn world and the men who work in it.

With all due respect to the the departed, porn attracts or ensnares people who are deeply wounded. The lack of inhibitions that it takes to have promiscuous sex on camera is unhealthy, physically and mentally. Porn is populated by broken people whose mental health is only exacerbated by their involvement in pornography.

I never thought Arpad was particularly hot. I never was able to 'get off' to him on film, I'm sure in real time I could have though.

He seemed to me genuinely nice, and a quality human being.

by Anonymousreply 6902/05/2013

It would have been nice to have Arpad sit on our face, even though she was very nelly(if you ever heard her speak). The meat was not large enough to be interesting. But the Hershey Highway is the nastiest roughest road of all and only very strong women, like ourself, manage to survive and pro$per on it. We ususally preferred to remain behind the camera rather than in front of it because that is where the money was(sadly, the internet killed it all by 2007).

Arpad always took great care of his body and himself. Seemed to like the gay porn lifestyle, but never took it too seriously. He enjoyed getting a bit older with the perspective it brings. This doesn't sound like a suicide to me-could quite possibly be a murder. He also wasn't the type to leave a note. He ran sometimes with a VERY elite crowd and knew a lot about some very prominent people so it makes me wonder. It all doesn't add up.

I knew Arpad personally - and not as a client. I cover arts events in NYC and invited him to be my escort to cultural events. A politer, more punctual, respectful person I have seldom had the privelege to meet.

He was taking classes (Spanish among other things) but that was mainly to keep a student visa to remain in the U.S. We actually discussed the deaths of Erik Rhodes and Roman Ragazzi and he was rather philosophical about it all. He seemed to have no direction in life other than to keep doing what he was doing. He was a very intelligent person but I sense that he lacked belief in himself. That he could do other things with his life.

He brought a lot of pleasure to many people and was a genuinely good person. AFAIK he never did drugs and told me he had stopped doing steroids after a few cycles. He felt he had developed enough bulk and could maintain it with weight lifting. I did sense a sadness and an aloofness - but he didn't encourage one to delve into his personal life. He loved being swarmed by fans and recognized in the street. I once took him to the GLBT Center Garden party and he was stopping traffic left and right. Grown men were acting like 14 year-old girls.

He had a long relationship with a partner who lived out of NYC - that broke up around 2011. I wish that either this is a hoax so he can kill off his porn persona and rebuild his life as Peter in Hungary. If not I wish I could turn back time and stop it from happening.

He was on Robin Byrd Show a couple of times I remember her shouting "Arpad! Arpad!" He also used to go that HK restaurant on 9th Ave., forget the name, in the high 30s.

I imagine he had saved nothing, faced a declining career as a performer, had to face the fact that he threw away his career in chemistry which would have lasted longer, may have become HIV+ or who knows what ... on a bad day, that would be enough for a number of people. Very sad, but perhaps if it serves as an ominous warning to others who think porn sounds glamorous, maybe not entirely in vain.

North gained and retained control of his image and brand. He took to producing his own content, and ran it as a business. Having a head for business is the only way to survive long--you can't just want to be a sex object. And really--Peter North hasn't been much of that in a long time.

Amazing that people are surprised when porn stars kill themselves. I mean, DUH. The lifestyle, the lack of respect (when your asshole is filmed in high def you pretty much give up any life of respectability), the drugs, the toxicity of it all. The crack up is all the people who wring their hands as if some Nobel Prize winner had died. Yes, we are all human but our choices define our lives, define us. Pornography is at or near the bottom of the barrel of respectable professions. Not that it is inherently "bad" or immoral, just that the people who populate that industry are notoriously fucked up. And porn stars do nothing for people/mankind beyond giving us jack off material. How 'important" that is is up for debate.

Why are gay and bisexual boys and men still literally dropping like flies to suicide and drug abuse? This suicide just hit me a while ago, and then made me think of the young 15 year old boy Jadin Bell out in Oregon who died a few days ago. And the other pornstar who just died a few days ago, supposedly due to a heart attack from drug use.

Like...............this is a very very serious problem. In a way I feel like that we're so concerned about marriage, about homophobes saying bad things about us, we've almost forgot to look out for ourselves and recognize our community isn't healthy internally and a large percentage of us are really struggling.

These guys were dirt poor in a country that was still adjusting from the fall of Communism. Most of these guys were from the countryside and were scouted in gyms.

Many were athletes (gymnasts, wrestlers) and young bodybuilders.

Most were straight. Doing porn was a way to make money (and travel) in a country were there were very few possibilities. Many knew one another and recommended their work-out buddies. Some were married with children. Wives would accompany some to the shootings.

These guys were told that their videos would not be sold or seen in Hungary. This was before widespread internet porn and before the internet became diffuse in Hungary.

Miklos was one of the few from that era that actually pursued a career in Porn. I would have a hard time believing that he was anything other than gay.

Most of the Hungarians from those Bjorn films did not make a career out of porn. They got married, had kids and settled down. You'll never hear of guys like Pavel Novotny again. They have disappeared back to a normal life.

I will never figure out why people insist on posting jokes and smart ass remarks when a person has died. I guess it is just what this world is coming to. Everyone has got to be a comedian. A man has died. Whether he was in porn or not, he was still a human being. One obviously in pain. Suicide is not a joking mater. If any of you have ever been touched by someones suicide, you would know that these remarks are not appropriate. You like to casually say "Oh another gay porn star has killed himself, so what?" Well he mattered to someone out there.

[quote] Some people actually like being in porn and want to become pornstars from a young age. Example: James Deen.

I like James Deen. (I am female.) But I am not so sure he is happy, or that his industry is happy, and reading his blog over the last half-year or so and observing this from the outside has made me realize that he is a cool person, but he has a facade, too. And that facade is what takes people down, like many celebrities.

Porn is odd, because people both idolize you and consider you a whore, with little respect, all at the same time. Some of the women featured on Deen's site seem damaged and empty to me, not always, but sometimes. I guess the word is vulnerable. And James Deen seems vulnerable to me too, actually. And probably Arpad Miklos was vulnerable too.

There is a lot of drugs and a lot of "using" in the sense of using-other-people that goes on in pornography. And yet the stars themselves are humans, with value, like any other kind humans. They tend to bond together too, because not many outside the industry would tolerate a relationship where your partner is regularly having sex with other people.

Porn, Hollywood, reality TV. They are all the same. I am one of those who considers Lindsay Lohan deeply tragic too, and I certainly didn't think it was funny when Anna Nicole Smith died. It's all part of the celebrity-machine industry, where you're fed in, and folks don't care too much about protecting you. Folks care about protecting their MONEY.

R190. I don't think people just blanketly 'worship' all porn stars. In fact, amidst the worship is a lot of criticism and disdain for so many of them. However, every once in a while, there's a porn star who comes along with a certain appeal.

And just like a mainstream actor, when a particular porn star has been around for many years, you develop an attraction just because he has certain likeability. Arpad had a certain something that many people liked.

And among all the clutter and scorn, he broke through. Plus, I think many of the comments on this thread is out of sympathy that someone died. And the way he died is unfortunate. In a strange way, people are just paying their respects.

Porn is not exactly a noble profession, but it's rather sad to learn of someone's death or suicide knowing they succumbed to pressure of it all and found no way to cope. At this point, it doesn't matter that he may have chosen that life. It matters that it was a sad ending. RIP.

Wow - sad to read this. I noticed just a few months ago, he was still advertising as a sex worker at age 45 and I was thinking "hmm, he will probably need to make some kind of break or transition soon." I guess he chose the ultimate transition, guess no path to other livelihood and lifestyle looked persuasive enough for him.

He didn't seem to be into bareback sex or drugs. Though who knows. It is possible he was just depressed and not seeing any future options, no reason to continue living and slowly growing old. The Bob Bergeron syndrome.

I was also thinking, Arpad has done so much porn that if you had sex with him, you were sexually 1 to 6 degrees of separation from any other gay porn star. Too late now to get in on that offer.

It takes someone made of steel not to be psychologically affected by choosing (or falling into) porn as a profession.

Any notion of 'the good life' is a facade. After a while it must wear you down if you stay in the business. And if you try to get out and get another job, then you carry the stigma of a porn performer. If you stay in the business, you create a life where your viability is limited or nonexistent. At least many years ago, if you left the porn business, you could leave it somewhat behind and in your past (not totally, but somewhat). But nowadays with the Internet, you can never escape your past. It lives on embarrassingly forever.

Arpad seemed like a good, grounded guy. But as much as we all watch porn, it's eventually a dead end if you're a porn performer. And even if Arpad's 'suicide' was an accident, his life was probably becoming empty, directionless and one without much self-esteem.

Arpad was a big hunk, but he wasn't made of steel. It's sad that his life ended too soon.

by Anonymousreply 25702/07/2013

This is so sad

One of the things that needs to be addressed by the gay community is how we help those who get older and what occurs to their perception of themselves as they age.

Sure this occurs in the straight community,but I think this is where we (gays ) don't address things well.

We speak and focus on youth and looks so much that when we inevitably are no longer the one everyone stares at or desires we have no where to turn too.

We either have friends who are caught up in what we are or worse are trying to recapture that golden moment that actually never was because when we did look that good we also were insecure about who we were!

I know I sound negative and self loathing but actually I both like getting older and reinventing myself and love being gay .I would hate to be straight yuk!!!

But as a community we need to focus on all the levels of life we go through,not just the first stages of it.

There are men who go back into the closet when they get older or worse get companionship from a woman and for all intensive purposes are straight.

We need to wake up and make sure that our legacy is not only guiding people out of the closet but helping through all their stages of gay not just the glossy mag image but the brilliantly wonderful lives that are ours.

R201 - it's definitely cultural. Outside Western culture, brotherhood is encouraged between males, even if one is gay. Openly gay is something different, though. But then, typically so is heterosexuality.

But in the US, we definitely discourage warm adult relationships between men. Obviously when called on it, straight women and men who claim to be straight will protest, 'that's not true', but it is.

R267 - maybe so - it just seems from my limited experience passing through non-gay New York that it's taboo for a young man to do ANYTHING without having a female in his presence - shopping, laundry, exercise - you name it, the young man must have a female (almost as if he's thinking, at any moment, some film director is going to stop him and cast him in some blockbuster film because of his dudeliness, that he'd lose if he were with another man).

Being a little silly, but if many a truth is said in jest, this is truly what I see.

And then even here on this message board, guys start threads, "where do you guys make guy friends/how do you guys make guy friends/etc.?" Just pathetic, IMO, but typical.

by Anonymousreply 26802/07/2013

R268, I agree.

Out here in LA I must hear the word 'girlfriend' within 5 to 20 seconds of meeting hot guys.

'Well, my girlfriend helped me with my audition...'

'My girlfriend loved coming with me to that movie premiere...'

I'll buy that most of them are heterosexual.

But there's a small percentage (at least) that's fighting to hang onto that straight image.

It is pathetic that more people have commented on this post than on the death of Spencer Cox, a prominent AIDS activist, who died a few weeks ago. This confirms my thought that most gay men are shallow and solely focused on the visual and the here and now. The gay community treats its elders like crap. I used to live in London and loved the fact that in pubs, especially straight pubs, all ages would interact, and laugh with one another, and learn from one another.

Fat chance in a gay bar.

I may go back to women. They understand nuance.

"This confirms my thought that most gay men are shallow and solely focused on the visual and the here and now."

Wrong. The only thing it confirms is that gays who long to be part of the "scene" are shallow, insecure, and vapid.

Normal gays aren't like that, they just don't get the attention because they're not trying to hog it.

Avoid the scene (aka gay ghettos) and you'll meet nice normal gays.

I have to laugh at the guys making a big deal about the "chemist" thing as if Miklos was working on the cure for cancer back in his native Hungary.

Throughout Europe, the English word "chemist" also means pharmacist.

The guys was probably working in a drugstore.

By the way, the average wage in Hungary is about 450 Euros a month.

Uh no. The wikipedia entry showed no citation that he was ever a chemical engineer. In interviews he claimed to have worked as a chemist which in Hungary has a broader range of definitions including pharmacy tech and lab worker. He was using a student visa to stay in the United States and taking some continuing ed classes at extension schools to keep his visa active.

by Anonymousreply 29702/10/2013

Arpad seemed like a nice guy--and I liked watching him on video, and it's unfortunate the he died. However, he was not a chemical engineer, chemist, pharmacist. He was a porn actor. He was 45. He had been doing porn for at least 18 years that is documented.

He was probably doing porn even longer because he probably didn't begin porn with his first video with Kristen Bjorn in 1995. So that means he probably began porn when he was around 25 years old or younger.

If he graduated from college at 21 or 22 years of age, then how long was he supposedly working as a chemical engineer or chemist considering that he likely didn't earn those titles right off the bat out of college? He may have been some sort of assistant briefly, but within a short period of time, his porn career seems to have begun in full swing, which doesn't leave much time for chemistry.

Rafael Alencar is a disgusting pig IRL. Immense turn-off.

by Anonymousreply 30402/11/2013

Gotta say, this one surprised me. Compared to the other gay-porn deaths.

Erik Rhodes: Widely known to be self-destructive and off-the-charts bigorexic.

Josh Weston: Had crossed over to bareback sleaze and was looking unwell before disappearing and then dying of HIV/AIDS complications.

Roman Ragazzi: Didn't know much about him but he had a lost/disconnected look in his eyes and got fired from his job at the UN (for doing porn)

But Arpad seemed like a prototypical solid, confident guy at least in terms of his public persona and reputation. It seems those closest to him knew he was dealing with some depression but even they didn't think it was suicide-level.

by Anonymousreply 30502/12/2013

I can't believe this thread has made it to 300 posts. Arpad wasn't a huge turn on for me. Big and muscular, big cock, but he looked too friendly. I like mean, tough-looking guys, aggressive tops, and he generally didn't fit the bill, especially in his pics where he smiles too much. Just my personal taste.

R313, in a porn video a few years ago Raphael gleefully told the story about how he loves the rats in his city backyard so much that when a stray cat visited his yard, he said "Here Kitty, Here Kitty" and then proceeded to take his shirt and twist it around the cat's neck.

The cat instantly died, of course, and I believe some gay porn lover who also loves cats actually reported him to the police or to an animal rights group. I heard he was investigated.

In any case, watching him tell that story totally creeped me out so I lost interest in him sexually.

They all have too much baggage and no experience to do any other type of work...and they're in a business that requires to expose so much of yourself. It's like being a drug addict...the more you do, the more you have to do to maintain your life. And then eventually, no one wants you any longer. And so you do more to maintain and then it all just backfires or goes to hell.

I mean, what a fucking stupid question, for starters. Secondly, he's not a kid and has probably fielded similar questions all his life from friends and family, and is just like, "would you all STOP SHOVING VAGINA IN MY FACE? YUCK, YUCK, YUCK. I don't want it - now or ever!"
