Yet Another Gay Male Porn Star Tragedy


It saddens me to report that Brett Mycles, aka Rob Sager, died over the weekend of congestive heart failure. He was 29 years old.
Brett was a star of several porn flicks as well as a fitness model. He reportedly was gay-for-pay, an escort as well as bisexual. He had married his childhood sweetheart several years ago, but it was not known if she knew of his porn life, or was with him at his time of death.
There has been speculation that his premature death may have been caused by steroid use. I don't know if an autopsy was performed to confirm cause of death.
Brett had a large legion of gay fans who literally worshipped his body. They were devoted fans and very obsessed with him.
I know this will not be the last death of someone who was part of the gay porn industry. I also realize that steroid and drug use in the industry will continue, and for young guys in the porn industry, it will be anything but a wakeup call to change their lifestyles.

I don't know if Brett knew any other life than in front of the camera. He will never get to explore and experience maturity. He will never see life fulfilled in some way.
I don't believe that his fans and their expectations have such control over an individual that all that he lives for is their admiration. If that is the case, then we live in a very superficial world.
I feel that while it is great appreciating hot gay men, it is even more important that we value each other from both an inner and outer perspective. Indeed, genuine beauty and sexyness is much, much more that what lies on the surface. What makes a man truly hot is his brains, his compassion, his values, his virtues, and as an added bonus, his brawn. These so called "idols" need to realize that life can be cut short, and if you want to live a full life, you can't cheat life by destroying your body, or forever being a party boy and expect to live a full and happy life.

It is such a waste. I don't care for that muscle bound type anyway. Give me a natural looking man with a little paunch and a lot of hair. Woof!!!

jeesus, who would have thought that? This guy is and was on/in EVERY!! muscle/fitness magazine here in Europe for the last decade orso. On television he did some ab-crunch commercials.

I remember seeing him for the first time in a fitnessmagazines and loved his looks and was so excited when i find out [by searching his name on the internet] he did some gayporn [my gaydar had it right in that way]

What a waste, steriods [he must have had plenty of that] and to think that these guys are our rolemodels, these are the bodies we're proceed having..

Bit of a shocker he past

I totally agree with your statement on "What makes a man truly hot is his brains, his compassion, his values, his virtues, and as an added bonus, his brawn."

Why waste a life like that to drugs? SAY NO TO DRUGS or anything that is harmful to our health.

Some of the hottest guys I know aren't sculpted and completely cut. All of them are manly, hard muscled and sexy - even the ones without hair (sadly not all of us can have chest hair... not fair!)

I'll take a real man over a gym-bunny any day.

Separate from all of this is that a young person died trying to be "perfect" (perhaps) and that is sad!

A real tragedy. And how many in the industry will end up like that in a few years. It just seems like they let history repeat itself.

I'm gobsmacked. I always thought he was kinda hot, although a bit too perfect for my tastes. What a waste.
