Being a gay porn star, definitely a NO NO at conservative Christian Grove City College

I guess separating John Gechter from his alter ego, Vincent DeSalvo, a humpy fuck bud in porn flicks, was difficult at best for several years, but now the truth be told, they are one in the same.

The money was definitely good, but the risk proved to be too much at the end. Exposed and in the public eye, John could only now wish that this attention dies down. It will, but it will be hard for a while.

We all wish John the best. Bad luck just sucks some times.

This is what Randy Blue writes about this hot porn stud:

Vincent is one of those rare guys who just fell into my lap. Literally. I was hanging at the beach with a friend of mine and we just happened to set up our blanket near a bunch of hot guys playing volleyball. We figured it was a perfect spot to take in the scenery… and I guess there was an ocean there, too. There was one guy who caught my eye. His body was absolutely incredible, with a huge bulge in his tight shorts and sweat creating a light sheen over his gorgeous smooth musculature. He laughed a lot throughout the game and when he did he radiated a playfulness that made me think he would be a lot of fun to mess around with. Then, all of a sudden, this this handsome hunk dove for a ball and ended up landing right in the middle of our blanket. Luckily he was unharmed and when he got up he chuckled, apologized and smiled this blinding white, joyful smile.

His name was Vincent DeSalvo and after the game I had to find out more about him. He said he loved the outdoors and his sexy body came from all the athletic activities he enjoyed. I told him what I did for a living and asked if he had ever done any modeling. He said that while he hadn’t modeled before he had been a go-go boy. Then he got this contemplative look on his face for just a moment, then flashed that adorable smile at me and said, ‘hey, I could model for you, right?’ I didn’t really need more than that, I made an appointment and he came in. He has such an innocent look about him that I wasn’t prepared for his bad boy side to emerge. He went from his sweet smile to spitting in his hand to lube his dick with and finger fucking himself while moaning like a bitch in heat. And when he came you could hear it in the next county! Vincent has it all, good looks, a great body and an incredible sexual energy.

But this zealous endorsement has left Grove City College officials stirring in their shoes.

Grove City takes a dim view of student porn star

If everything had gone according to plan, John Gechter would have been studying yesterday for a final exam -- one of his last obligations before graduating from Grove City College with a degree in molecular biology.

Instead, he was preparing for an underwear modeling contest last night in New York City.

It's been a tough couple of weeks for Mr. Gechter, who has learned the hard way what happens when you try to use a gay porn career to finance your education at one of America's most conservative Christian colleges.

For the past two years, Mr. Gechter has been paying the bills through his secret life as porn star "Vincent DeSalvo," earning as much as $11,000 per weekend while jetting off to Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles to film more than a dozen videos.

He did so without telling a soul on the 2,300-student campus in Mercer County, not even his roommate of two years.

PG poll
Was the punishment handed down to John Gechter by Grove City College justified? Vote in our poll.

"Porn enabled me to finish school," said the 22-year-old from Reading, Berks County. "Instead of working 40 hours a week as a busboy or a waiter, you do a scene and then you have time to concentrate on schoolwork."

But on April 23, a fellow student found Mr. Gechter's ample body of work on the Internet and forwarded evidence of his secret identity to friends. By the next day, Mr. Gechter estimated that the e-mail had reached two-thirds of the student population -- and he'd landed in a meeting with administrators.

Grove City College promotes itself as "Authentically Christian" and requires students to attend at least 16 chapel services per semester. It prides itslef on its conservative heritage and notes on its Web site that the Young America's Foundation recognized it as one of the Top Ten conservative colleges in the U.S.

The school's student handbook clearly states that "premarital sex, heterosexual or homosexual, or any other such conduct that violates historical Christian standards" is subject to disciplinary action.

Mr. Gechter was charged with sexual misconduct, participation in the public display of pornography and engaging in "conduct that is contrary to the mission and values of Grove City College and likely to bring dishonor to the College."

His punishment: an indefinite suspension and a prohibition from re-applying for admission until the fall of 2010. A Grove City appeals board turned down his initial appeal.

Mr. Gechter had been warned by his mentors and employers in the adult film industry that his identity would likely become known. And he had been careful to keep his adult film career away from campus. Still, he hadn't expected that it might prevent him from graduating.

"I was prepared to be recognized," he said. "I was not prepared for the school to react the way they did."

Grove City released a statement yesterday but declined any further comment.

"The student's suspension resulted from his involvement in the adult pornography industry. The student acknowledged that he was employed in the adult entertainment industry and that he knew that violated the student code of conduct. Throughout this process, his sexual orientation was not a factor in the decision."

Mr. Gechter says he is bisexual.

Though he still has one appeal pending with the provost, he has officially withdrawn from the school. He says he's received nearly 200 "hate mail" e-mails from other students and has even been pelted with fruit salad in the cafeteria.

He hopes to complete the remaining two classes that he needs to graduate elsewhere. But his plans to enroll next year in a master's program in kinesiology at the University of Miami are now on hold.

Ironically, Mr. Gechter ended up at Grove City College in the first place because of the generous financial aid package awarded to him.

With two siblings also in college and his parents unable to provide much financial support, Mr. Gechter said that he had to finance his education by himself. Tuition, room and board at Grove City is just under $20,000 a year.

At first, he went the more traditional route, working at low-paying jobs such as a desk clerk at the school gym, a cook in the student bistro and a waiter.

With schoolwork on top of long hours at low wages, he "really got burned out," he said, and decided to explore modeling jobs.

He signed with the Ohio-based Midwest Model Management Agency, doing mainly "fitness and underwear modeling." At one job, he was approached by a scout who told him that he had the perfect body for the adult film industry.

And while the move from modeling to pornography seems like crossing a fairly large gulf, "when you're actually in the industry, it's not quite as big of a deal," he said.

He would work a couple weekends per month, flying out on Friday and returning Sunday night in time for Monday classes and typically making between $3,000 and $5,000 -- and sometimes as much as $8,000 -- per scene.

Though Mr. Gechter said that his porn career opened doors for him in terms of modeling and possibly acting, he now wishes that he hadn't done it, given the academic consequences and the pain that it has caused his religious family.

When he broke the news, his mother started "praying and fasting." His father was upset, but he said they still love him.

He has retained a lawyer and is contemplating a lawsuit against Grove City. Though he admits that some of his rule violations were fairly clear, he doesn't feel like the school is demonstrating Christian values of love and forgiveness. The whole experience, he said, has caused him to re-examine his Christian beliefs.

"I believe in God, that you are held accountable for what you do, that there are standards of right and wrong," he said.

"If I could do it over again, this is not an option I would pursue. It's something you learn from, and you learn who your true friends are very, very quickly."

It is finally time to repeal, Don't Ask, Don't Tell. We can't let another year go by.



In the Barracks, Out of the Closet

President Obama has said he will abolish the 16-year-old “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, which allows gays and lesbians to serve in the military only if they do not disclose their sexual orientation. Nationwide, polls show that a majority of Americans support lifting the ban on openly gay members of the military.

But support in the military’s ranks and among retired officers is mixed. While several prominent retired generals and admirals have urged a repeal, others have said that allowing openly gay people to join the service would hurt recruiting and retention. How would lifting the ban affect the military ranks?

We don't know the answers to this. An Executive Order would, I feel, weaken any chance of Congress passing the repeal. Only Congress should lift this stupid policy.
Write your congressman and senator. Tell him or her that this is just bullshit, and discriminates again gay men and lesbians serving in the military.
Toot your horn and make a soldier proud to be serve openly and gay in our armed forces without retaliation!!!!
They need our Mega Hairy Muscle Hugs of support.
