Gay Porn Stars Get into Major Social Media Debate about the term 'BBC'

Racism in the gay world has been a major topic for several years now, most notably with the recent controversy at the GayVN awards surrounding the category Best Ethnic Scene.

Now, there's another debate going on, this time within the gay porn industry, regarding the usage of the term "big black cock," or as some simply put it, "BBC."

Max Konnor, who is a gay porn actor, tweeted the following regarding his disdain of the phrase.  

 

 

The tweet led to it being liked and favorited over 500 times, with others primarily agreeing with what Max had to say on this issue.  One user wrote "I respect and adore you as you are. You will never be “just a body part” to me! Respect."

So what was his reasoning for bringing this up in the first place?  “I was trying to find out how real and honest I could be with my fans," he exclusively told NewNowNext.  “A lot of times people will tweet on things I’m tagged in or to things I’ve tweeted on my actual page in reference to ‘oh yeah, take that BBC’ or ‘oh I can’t wait until I can get that BBC’ and to me, personally, the acronym, whenever I heard it, has always made me cringe. So when I posted that, it was just a personal tidbit of information saying when it’s said to me it’s a turn-off.”

However, not everyone seemed to be on board with Max's thought process.  Austin Wolf, who has been a relatively known gay porn actor for several years now, shared his thoughts about the issue in a now-deleted tweet that read "We are quite literally paid to be objectified,” he wrote. “If you have a problem with your dick, race or any pots of your body or personality obejectified [sic], classified, insulted or criticized you are in the wrong business.”

Another porn star by the name of Big C, agreed with Austin on this one, tweeting:

 

 

Austin Wolf did not respond to NewNowNext's request for a comment, however Big C did elaborate on what he said, saying "Hot sex is about pushing limits, edging, and being naughty. Also roleplay is part of it. I’m not racist, but race play is hot and popular.”

Is Austin being way too harsh on a topic that has been talked about many times before?  How would you interpret what Big C wrote in response to all of this?

Oh, please. Don’t complain about being ‘objectified’ when you work in adult entertainment. This guy has had more love scenes with white folks than Morgan Freeman, Billy dee Williams, and Denzel Washington combined. If he kept his d**k in his pants nobody would talk about his BBC but, of course, nobody would hire you either. Don’t like the bed you made? Don’t sleep in it and make a new bed.

We humans as we continue to live on this beautiful planet are and is still evolving in many ways, either to better our own self or in a way that is too sensitive to outward stimulants like hearing the acronym "BBC." It is what it is, some black men use the race card too much and im tired of it. Yes they black and yes they have big fat cocks. Your a porn star and so it comes with the territory that you will hear or read or tagged in porn jargon. I see it this way, you are the epitome of big black cock, let it go.

I understand what Max Konnor is saying and I am very empathic to that, especially being a black man myself. However I'm not sure his point is as effective as someone that is not in the adult entertainment industry. Example: a black man on Grindr, Tinder, Scruff, etc. that gets approached with lines of "Can I see your BBC?" or "I want that BBC." is more alarming because that black man is being seen as just a big dick and not a person first. As for a porn actor/model that is part of the job, being objectified. Porn stars serve as a tool to our arousal, not to have interactive connections with. I will say, the same argument can be made for anyone that is first approached with a specific race or feature. I think the BBC is the more common offense.

Right message, wrong messager. I understand what Max is saying also, but it sounds a bit hypocritical coming from him.

Like black people don't read white people and tell them how to feel about things all the time ... let go of the hypocritical double standard.

Typical of white men to tell black men how they should feel about racism or the fetishization of being a POC. Shame on Austin Wolf. Personally, I find it abhorrent that porn companies can't have a POC in a film without saying chocolate, papi, BBC, etc.
