Despite popular belief – especially amongst countless twinks who believe adding “XXX” after a Twitter handle will get them noticed – there aren’t many working porn models today who have successfully made the jump from social media exhibition to starring in le sexeh films. Fortunately, Bryan Cole is one who has made that leap with ease.
I took notice of Bryan earlier this year when he was @aknastypig. The name drew from his hometown of Akron and his love of the Nasty Pig brand/lifestyle. Often, he’d post photos of himself showing off his latest NP jock, or flashing his boner at his office desk. Naturally, such images were retweeted frequently and his follower base began to grow, especially garnering notice from a few key players in the gay porn industry.
The most alluring thing about Bryan initially was his love of exhibition via social media, and complete lack of inhibition in the bedroom. He would recount his exploits with candor and his followers ate every detail up. Before transitioning from homemade porn to studio work, he did some erotic “advertising” work for Fort Troff. They have a great selection of kink gear, and even better they provide demo videos of guys showing you how to use the products before you buy! Genius marketing.
He’s made efforts to upload his own personal videos (which is where the majority of the ones you see in this post come from) to an XTube page. I had to take the liberty to re-upload them to my own servers because XTube might be the last bastion of the digital pornosphere who refuses to embrace HTML5. That’s a bunch of nerdspeak to say that their videos will not play on all modern internet accessible devices. It’s also nice to see a porn model still able to share his goods. Many execs in the industry aren’t a fan of models giving their fans free material, because “why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free”, but they fail to realize that videos like these can essentially operate like calling cards, enticing the viewer to search for more.
Considering Bryan’s broad introduction to folks in the industry was just in May during Grabby/IML weekend, he’s built quite a body of work in the latter half of 2012. Working for BoundJocks, Men On Edge, Kink Men, Next Door Studios (everyone makes mistakes), Lucas Entertainment, GayRoom, amongst others, including the upcoming Guys In Sweatpants. Say what you will about model over-saturation, but Bryan is one guy that I can’t get tired of. His genuine joie de sexe and puppy dog face gets me every time.
In fact, before I leave you with the mega-gallery of Bryan’s shots from his Twitter feed, take one more look at this video I posted months ago, involving his dirty dealings in his local gym’s locker room.
The boy you see him kissing and nuzzling in some of the photos below is fellow porn model and current boyfriend, Duncan Black.
