An olive-skinned, dark-haired model slowly peels his shirt off to reveal smooth, perfect pecs, bulging arms, and rock-hard abs. As he lifts the weights, beads of perspiration slowly drip down to his skimpy, sweat-stained shorts. Every pump of his tight muscles is lingered over, but his shorts stay on until it becomes clear: This isn�t the usual jerk-and-squirt scene you�ve come to expect from porn palace RandyBlue.com; it�s the website�s new fitness forum.'
�Gay men want to look good, love to work out, and they come to our site every day,� says site founder Randy Blue. �So why not give them some really good information while they�re here?�
Adonis (not his real name), a 27-year-old straight Greek-Italian stud, has been training clients for eight years while modeling for such outlets as Men�s Workout, International Male, Exercise for Men Only, and the Abercrombie and Fitch catalog. Blue originally approached Adonis (above) to perform in sex scenes on the site -- many of Blue�s models are gay for pay -- but the legit model declined; however, the two quickly became friends and developed this new concept instead.
Adonis�s pages launched in January 2008 with videos for training specific body parts as well as a blog where he fields fitness-related questions, offers advice, diet tips, and more. It�s sexy without being salacious -- these workouts don�t include pop shots -- and though future videos have him training with Blue�s models, these won�t evolve into sex. So why would a successful, straight model make the jump into the gay-porn pen?
�Some models would rather be on the cover of Vogue for $200 just to say they were on the cover of Vogue than to be featured in something adult and make 10 times that amount,� Adonis says. �For me, the motivation is financial. Plus I have great trust and respect for Randy.�
Money aside, Adonis�s focus is on working out. �I just love training and fitness. You can constantly refine your body. I find it creative. I love interacting with people and helping them achieve their goals.�
