What went wrong with Sean Cody?

Any idea porn gays? The guys are not hot, the scenes are boring.

Talk about how the mighty have fallen.

I recently canceled my subscription, which I had had a very long time. Unlike other sites, they did not bounce back well from COVID -- updates slowed to a crawl and when they did post a new video the sex was a crashing bore. Also, it seemed all of their hot models left during the shutdown and didn't return except for Jax, who just didn't look the same. In short, it just wasn't worth the money anymore and, barring a spectacular comeback, it'll be interesting to see if it stays around for much longer.

by Anonymousreply 6May 23, 2021 9:25 PM

Didn't they get bought by a larger company that owns a range of porn sites and was more corporate? (Pretty sure I learned that on DL)

When SeanCody himself owned it, there was a sweetness to it, because ti was so amateurish and the guys didn't realize they were hot, were kind of shy and nervous about having gay sex.

They also didn't do much back then--mostly just sit back and let someone blow them.

When CorbinFisher introduced kissing it was a big deal.

Getting rid of their solos was a big mistake. So what if the majority didn't return to do more? Many of them were still hot. And people are willing to pay to watch a hot guy pleasure himself. Look at OnlyFans. I continued to keep my subscription for the solos, but after they nixed them several years ago, I stopped altogether. I just went to check SC because of this thread and the models are so subpar, it's tragic. A shadow of its former self.

Remember the days (until 2015 or so) when there was a new model update every other day? You'd get two solos and one fuck scene in one week. And since each solo and fuck scene had two cum shots, it was well worth it. Not anymore.

Did something go wrong with Sean Cody? I mean, nothing lasts forever. The original owner was done with it, for whatever reason (age, frustration with illegal file sharing, the business with SC's Jarec vs. Donald Burns, etc.) and sold it off to Mindgeek which fucked it up by not caring about the content (remember that time when countless clips were filmed with some strange color distortion and nobody noticed it for week? And Mindgeek released the clips without making any post-production adjustments).

Just like with Falcon Studios. With each time it got sold off it got worse and worse. Now it's owned by video-on-demand company AEBN and nobody cares.

I think it's a general business thing where companies don't really understand what makes their new acquisitions great and expand on that. Sure, sometimes companies buy its competition to destroy them to stay on top, but in a lot of cases these companies just buy assets and don't know what to do with them to turn a profit with the help of the new company's management.

R18 When that removal happened, BananaGuide had a brief note on the subject indicating that SC would eventually put them all back up.

[quote] In December 2020, two-thirds of the videos (1800 of 2700) were removed from Sean Cody, leaving under 900. While MindGeek has provided no reason, they have informed us that the videos will be reinstated in early 2021.

And when I mentioned that in a prior DL thread a few months ago, someone responded that it had to do with the parent company (MindGeek) now going back and verifying ages of all past models.

Well, "early 2021" has come and gone, so who knows what they're doing.

They're the Ambercrombie & Fitch of porn. They have a target audience within the gay community that's too narrow. They never grew. Part of being gay (for many) is the ability to explore things and people outside the mainstream or what is expected. Sean Cody is too white bread and yes, it's boring as fuck.

by Anonymousreply 28June 8, 2021 6:36 PM

The initial selling point was that it was amateur, as in they were getting actual straight guys to try gay sex.

And the awkward camera angles and lengthy interviews with the guys and all of them having sex with Sean himself was part of the appeal.

In the early days they didn't kiss and the sex was awkward but it was hot because it all seemed real.

There was a period when they had a lot of hot guys who still seemed sort of real, like the good looking guy working at Trader Joe's, someone you might actually meet IRL and then that devolved into guys who looked like white trash models with shaved and plucked bodies and zero personality, and the whole thrill was gone and the videos looked just like Men.com only without any plot lines.

One other factor was that 20 years ago guys didn't realize that the Internet Is Forever and that their gay porn videos would be available somewhere 20 years later. So they got a different type of guy.

by Anonymousreply 29June 8, 2021 6:37 PM

You have to admit that Sean Cody was a great business model. And like most great business models, they always somehow get fucked up. Look at what happened to Falcon Video. It was once an iconic brand, now it's... this. Yuck.

In all seriousness, business model aside, I think one of things that ruined this type of porn, was that the type of guys who would do this sort of thing suddenly grew in number. You can see a hot "straight" or "identifies as straight" guy anywhere - maybe not always naked, but pretty close. Oversaturation of hot straight guys killed Sean Cody.

Another article on the subject also said that "the verification policy would apply to all sites owned by MindGeek, Pornhub’s parent company," so it's not specific to Sean Cody.

What sells nowadays is the straight looking guys with openly feminine guys or even with a M-F transexuals (in any stage). They could also have added more color.

More guys are out nowadays than when Sean Cody started which means they have many more opportunities to get "experience" earlier. The two awkward "boys" trying to figure it out is less common nowadays. One of them is gonna know what to do. Their formula is just not as realistic as back in the day.

Most people just don't want what they're selling.

Traditional studio porn is not big with youngest Millennials and Gen Z. Gen Z likes the less produced, interactive content of OnlyFans and Justfans. Also, the new platforms have a lot more fantasy caliber fitness model types than SC or the oldline studios. On OF, you can find guys who are/were college jocks, real hotties, not washed up or sleazy looking unattractive guys.

No need to over analyze.

They had a formula that worked twenty years ago, they let it get stale and slick, they spawned a whole host of competitors and so what once seemed fresh and unique now seems tired.

This sort of lifecycle is not limited to pron-- it happens in just about every industry.

by Anonymousreply 38June 11, 2021 3:52 PM

The site actually had a more diverse selection of guys in the first few years of the site. More blacks and latinos than in the proceeding years combined. I actually preferred the first 5 years or so of the website because they didn't really have a set type of guys looks wise really. Although some bordered on barley passable or ugly even. And like a previous poster said, it seemed more real. Things just seemed to progress naturally for the ones that came back for more scenes. Later, it seemed the site became more like a standard porn site, the set number of positions and sex acts happened in just about every video. Then after mindgeek took over, the quality on everything went down. I don't blame Sean Cody getting out when he did though, memberships have gone way down on all sites pretty much over the last decade.

I'm not sure I believe the age verification things. From the beginning the site had the same standards for record keeping than any other commercial site - valid government IDs, signed model releases, and photographed holding their IDs next to their face. All of that documentation would've been handed over when the sale was finalized. More likely mindgeek doesn't care about what is on their site or what fans want to see. Little effort as possible for them. Less scenes, less bandwidth being used.

by Anonymousreply 39June 11, 2021 3:53 PM

Wanted to add that in terms of overall revenue, what went wrong with Sean Cody was MyVidster, Gay0Day, YourPornGod and all the other streaming sites where you can find their videos for free.

Sean Cody and Corbin Fisher releases used to be events where you could see guys experimenting and going further into gay sex. There were a variety of jock/twink types (Noel, Pete, Logan, Connor) who learned a lot on-screen. Back then, you had a chance of being on these semi-amateur sites and thinking that you wouldn't be outed in real life.

Nowadays, that delusion isn't present, everyone knows they'll be plastered all over the Internet. So the models are people who don't mind that, they've already worked for other studios or OnlyFans.

Now that SC has taken down its earlier videos, there's basically no reason to sign up for the site.

by Anonymousreply 49June 11, 2021 4:55 PM

R43 you are actually making my point. A lot of the big successful houses (like Sean Cody) are dying because they are not responsive to the market and the times. They have people like you who prefer them but a lot of other people (obviously) want something else. SC did not change with the times. People have MORE OPTIONS now and they are exercising them. Plus there is a lot of FREE stuff. If you are gonna charge for porn it better damn-well be EXACTLY what people want to see.

To clarify this, there was a time when gay men had to beat off to straight porn and just imagine the parts where and how they wanted them to be. There was gay porn but it was not readily accessible. Everything wasn't online and at your fingertips. A lot of men were not willing to walk in a porn shop for straight porn much less go in and select a "gay video." Similar to the way regular G and R rated movies did not have have representation of gay characters we HAD TO WATCH them if we wanted entertainment. There was nothing else.

Now people have OPTIONS!

Translation: Everybody doesn't wanna watch two cisgender looking blonde haired blue-eyed skinny white boys fuck each other.

I know from firsthand knowledge that Mindgeek doesn’t pay shit, while in their heyday, SeanCody would pay thousands for scenes. Mindgeek won’t even let SeanCody entice popular former models to come back for special appearances because that would mean less money for the owners to buy tacky houses and other…things. To make matters worse, the PornHub scandal sidelined the only thing SeanCody still had going for it: A back catalogue of hot men in their prime having sex. Now they’ve fully embraced the MindGeek model and only hire washed up (insert profession here) willing to do porn for a couple of hundred a scene.

The quality of models at Corbin Fisher indicates they’re the last of the 2000s era amateur sites still offering decent paydays. Their regular models don’t have social media accounts under their stage names, they don’t escort, and they stick around for years…which indicates CF is paying out for exclusivity (as in a few thousand per scene….not enough to live on, but enough to keep coming back).

by Anonymousreply 64June 11, 2021 6:09 PM

In general, studio porn has lost its subversive appeal where viewers are members of an audience watching hot guys doing things for the first time on camera. You still get that on cam and other amateur sites. Sites like SC, CF, CM, etc. created their own exclusive porn stars who were only available on their sites (at least before BelAmi had this idea of doing crossovers).

[quote] Sean Cody and Corbin Fisher releases used to be events where you could see guys experimenting and going further into gay sex.

Brandt's Boys is trying to do that with his clips showing guys, like Jordan, do gay stuff for the first time.

What kills commercial porn is easy access to free content (including downloading active membership required hardcore porn content illegally). When a customer is satisfied with the free stuff there is no way he's paying for it when it's not significantly better or there's a benefit he doesn't get from free stuff, like feeling "close" to the performer (like, say, Only Fans).

by Anonymousreply 65June 11, 2021 6:41 PM

The main problem with a lot of the non-studio pron being produced right now (OF, JFF. etc. ) is that there's no cameraman/director getting the shots that viewers want to see. You can't beat the great camerawork with which I always associate classic Sean Cody.

Same goes for the cock-teasers on OF who only do soft porn. They’re worth a lot less than guys who actually do oral and anal on a regular basis with different people.

That said, SC is not the only one being forced out of the industry. Between the oldies but goodies circulating for free, new stuff illegally downloaded every day, and access to Only Fans, the traditional porn industry is becoming increasingly irrelevant. They're completely out of touch with what most fans want.

They need one stop shopping... the days of niche market are over. If you're a porn maker, you need more variety. Going for the extreme in either direction is not going to sustain you. Consumers are all over the map with their tastes and looking to experiment more. Today I may wanna see daddy porn, tomorrow interracial and the next day a tranny hooker in a gang bang.

Brandon was the ultimate straight jock boyfriend. His closest rival, Stu, didn't even com close.

Brandon, at the height of his powers, was one of the most gorgeous guys to have ever done porn. If his dick matched that face and that body, instead of being a superstar, he would have been unstoppable. It just never ends well for people that good looking.

I could never understand the “King Brandon” worship on this site. Nor his refusal to bottom for such a long time. Remember when he finally did? I’m sorry, but if your dick is below average (and his most definitely is), you are neither a “King” nor are you entitled to “total top” privilege or whatever. Your dick is small? Guess what, you have to get fucked. A little versatility is okay, sure, but come on guys.

Facebook’s growing popularity slowly killed Sean Cody, not to mention that Facebook owns Onlyfans which has taken a lot of the money hungry guys away from traditional porn.

Having your porn career follow someone around to every job and friend by crazy stalkers killed porn. Now with TikTok young men are really started to understand their own beauty and what it can buy (attention, sponsors). So even a boy from flyover land now knows what their beauty is worth so recruiting for porn became 10x as hard.

Brandon's appeal was that, in the early days anyway, he seemed very sweet and naive and very into his partners and making sure they were enjoying themselves.

That was Abe's appeal too.

Both hearkened back to the early days of SC where the guys really were completely naive and eager to please and the audience could imagine actually knowing someone like that.

Only Fans allows for interaction, but the guys are all so transactional and "here's my Amazon wish list" that it does not work quite as well.

What set Brandon apart from other guys with his looks was his personality.

He was open, friendly and seemed to care that his scene partner was enjoying themselves. He seemed into it in a way that seemed real, not all the fake moans and cries you get with so many other performers.

It was the fantasy that the "hot college quarterback" was actually a nice guy who would be fun to hang out with.

SC went to shit when they were sold to the owner of men dot com. The appeal of the site was that the guys were all slightly awkward and looked like they were unsure what to do sometimes. Now the scenes are full of over the top moaning and shouting, which isn't surprising if you look at what the directors at men dot com consider "good porn".

I recently re-watched the scene where he returned after a years-long absence, and noticed his dick really wasn't that big (not bigger than Brandon's at least). The difference is, he knew how to use it and didn't act like having sex with him was some gift in itself. Brandon is handsome, but I've never ever understood the appeal because he has zero personality.

In other words, they looked like a guy you might know--the cute guy at work, the hot UPS guy, etc. There were so many very good looking guys too.

Sean Cody put a lot of time and effort into making their models look polished. For a few years, the site released behind the scenes clips to further create the illusion of how much fun these straight (STRAIGHT!) guys are having while filming gay sex for the site.

IMO, apart from Blake, none of the Sean Cody guys come off well when they are on their own on social media. Most of them turn out to be right wing gun nuts, murderers (Addison, Francisco), drug addicts, bitter homophobes, etc. Some, like Stu, even distance themselves from their porn work to focus on some other career.

I think the time when a site invests time and effort to make their models look and behave "on-brand" is gone.

This is true r189. Models were made into their characters by SC giving them makeovers before the cameras turned on. Only early GH did that. Everyone else lets their modes come as they are. It’s really a testament to the site and what they do create that image and illusion of clean cut, boy next door jock

by Anonymousreply 210June 19, 2021 1:21 PM

I think the breaking point for me was the changed attitude of the models. I doubt that any of the early models signed up with SC to start a career in porn. At best this gig could be considered 'testing the waters and see if I like it'. And then they tested on screen to see how far they could take it in terms of looks and actions. That approach was somewhat matched on the production site. The direction was still very amateurish and action in front of the camera was very little directed. A nice result was this cute and sexy awkwardness on screen that is now completely missing.

Now it's all planned out. The models have either been on screen before , or the SC gig is seen as the first step of either escorting or moving on in porn in a very professional way - with a body that has been prepared for this for years. And the production matches this approach. You cannot start as a model if you haven't prepared your body through gym or pharmacy. (And you better be white because for some reason dark skin doesn't seem to sell well.) Performance is heavily choreographed with fucking position that are so ridiculous at times. There is nothing amateurish and cute/awkward anymore. This is fine if they still get customers to subscribe to it. But it's a very different concept by now.

I'll be the first to admit I'm a biased Peter fan, but how do you know he is a Trumptard, r184? Getting married to a woman and procreating after getting out of porn isn't exactly uncommon unfortunately. And maybe the frau drags him to church r142. As others have said, he was definitely enthusiastic in his scenes.

[quote]At best this gig could be considered 'testing the waters and see if I like it'.

Just my opinion, but I think those early guys were regular working class guys looking for a quick infusion of cash. I used to joke that they needed a down payment for a truck or first plus last plus security deposit or beer money or a trip to Panama City for spring break. Quick and easy money and no one at 20, especially back then, was thinking about the forever aspects of the internet or Sean Cody.

Sean Cody would bring them in, clean them up a little bit, but not so much as they would look overly done, plucked and preened, like they do now. Sometimes they would come back. Sometimes, for the right money, they would do more.

As you can tell most of them have gone back into obscurity and those of you who follow them have reported they've fallen back into type. Small towns, republicans, Trumpers, wife and kids and some kind of blue collar job.

While I'm not holding my breath, I'm still waiting for the first former Sean Cody model to run for office. You know it's coming and they will probably be running as Trumper.

It's sad that a lot seem to be Trumpers, conspiracy theorists, covid deniers. anti vaxxers, ect. Although a good amount of porn stars in general (both gay and straight) seems to be a least one of the above.

I'm glad that my all-time-fave SC model, the original Luke, seems to be none of the above. Although he is married to a woman.

The original Zack mentioned a few posts above, seems to be sane and sable also. He has his own business as well. Haven't been able to find much on his personal life, although I suspect he's probably bi.

You can't re-create that magic of early Sean Cody introducing straight guys to gay sex watching their progress from solo to getting sucked, fucking someone, to getting fucked. Even straight guys are even more self-aware of how the internet and social media work these days. Back then, you could convince guys (well, the dumb and desperate ones) that none of their friends and families will ever find out. Nowadays, sexting and sharing your dick pics on Reddit are a lot more common.

Guys were convinced to contact certain porn sites to do solos by recruiters. I don't think that is happening these days. Guys apply for doing porn (studio or website) on their own.

Re: Peter

He’s a registered Republican, but I followed him on social media through most of Trump’s first term and he didn’t seem particularly Trumpy. He never even mentioned politics or social issues…most of his posts were about grilling and traveling the world. After SeanCody he joined the Navy and did a minimum enlistment before becoming a contractor working in the Middle East. Now he’s back in Florida, married with kids, and a small business owner.

Again, while I’ve never seen anything pro-Trump from him, he’s a registered Republican in Florida. He was also friends with Curtis, another Republican Floridian who happens to be a rightwing nutcase. His only significant flaw these days (other than aging horribly) is that he’s ultra religious these days. The last time I saw his Facebook page it was a bunch of BS about the Bible and he even had a picture of him and his family at church.

Oh, and regarding Stu: There was a time he went through great lengths to walk away from his porn past, but a few years ago SeanCody started doing a feature where facts about “classic” scenes would pop up (like Pop Up Video in the ‘90s)….and Stu filmed s feature for them. He was actually the very first model to appear on their TikTok account in a video that had been filmed last year.

There are various levels of gay for pay too.

I suspect that someone who does nothing more than watch a straight porn video while another guy blows him has a markedly different experience than someone who makes out with a guy, sucks cock and gets fucked, cumming while the top's hard cock is hammering away at his prostate and then feeling the top cum inside him.

And by "experience" I don't just mean in the moment, but in how they eventually process it and in how they look at other guys and how they understand women in the years ahead.

Side Note: As for the religion thing, given that so many guys turn to porn to pay off drug, gambling or other debts, being a gay for pay porn actor may not be at the top of the list of "sins" the are trying to repent from.

One more thing about early SC: we know there is nothing particularly sexy about the way porn is filmed--lots of disjointed takes, trying to get the model hard, a full crew surrounding the guys, frequent breaks, oftentimes straight porn playing in the background.

But very early SC was just Sean and a cameraman and it was clear there weren't too many breaks or takes--his production skills were pretty limited--and at some level that made it hotter. Many of the OnlyFans videos have that too, where you can see the guy leaning over to turn the camera on his phone on, or picking up his phone and holding it to get a close-up.

Facebook, op. Facebook's rise started Sean Cody's downfall. Sure, they could use it and Myspace to recruit, but after awhile, people would post links to these guy's porn profiles for their colleagues, friends, and family to see. There was no hope of keeping their porn and real life separate.

The site also didn't keep proper records of their release forms so Mind Geek had to scrub most of the archives from SC's golden era off the site. In a way, it's a wonderful "fuck you" to Mind Geek, but also a shame since that's what was worth seeing.

Porn is forever changing, Falcon had it's day flying close to the sun but fizzled out when porn music became outdated. SC had it's time.

Bright side, Corbin Fisher is stilling putting in the good fight and should be commended to keeping to it's roots. Same with Chaosmen.

It's not just Sean Cody. People are less interested in traditional porn cranked out by the big studios. The world has moved on.

- While it is easier to access, sellers of porn online now have so much competition. There are literally thousands of porn sites. It's not like back in the day when there was just one (maybe two) Adult bookstore in the seedy part of town where everyone went to get videos. - There is also so much FREE porn online. You don't "need" to buy it. - A lot of the new stuff just isn't as good. It's hard to fantasize when everyone's tatted and pierced. Also ALL the old stuff was bareback. - There is OnlyFans which caters more specifically to the customer. - There are porn games online with animation which eliminates the need for actors. - Most R rated movies now provide a scene or two of gratuitous soft-core porn you can FAP to! - The internet has made it so much easier to hookup with people and live out porn fantasies with real people. - Also people are secretly filming themselves or others having sex to enjoy later.

So don't be so hard on Sean Cody. All of the industry is gonna have to change with the times or they're going under. Will there always be a porn industry? Of course! But the demand for traditional porn is just not as strong. Consumers have too many other options.

I believe the times of new, fresh-faced hunks doing studio porn is long gone. Social media made younger generations a lot more self-aware how to create your own brand, get followers, and cash in on your own image and content, cutting out the middle man: Porn studios and porn sites. There are plenty of examples where OnlyFans content creators collaborate with other OF content creators for cross promotion and giving their fans something new.

Somebody on MaleGeneral catfished him on Facebook and posted DMs as proof. He posed as a fellow SC performer who was having personal problems and asked him for life advice. Abe, big dumb galoot that he is, took the bait and opened up about his past troubles.

• He signed up with SC to pay his legal bills after he got arrested for selling coke. He loved being treated like a celebrity, ended up blowing the money he made on partying, and went to prison for three months. He also did a straight scene for Brazzers before signing up with SC.

• Some former high school classmates found out that he did gay porn and outed him to his parents and his employer at the time. Someone messaged his mother on Facebook, but she couldn't figure out how to open the message and asked hm for help; he deleted the message before she could read it. Eventually his parents found out anyway, and he confessed that he did porn because he needed the money. His mom was understanding; his dad is homophobic and didn't take it well, but eventually he came around. His employer was cool and even let him return to film his final SC scene.

• SC offered him $10,000 to bottom. He went for it, but the scene didn't work out because bottoming was too painful and his scene partner was fucked up on Xanax. He doesn't remember his partner's SC name.

• He considers himself straight and doesn't hook up with guys outside of porn, but he freely admits that he's attracted to men.

• Finally, he says he wants to pitch a series to Netflix about the stigma of doing porn.
