Gay porn lost an icon today at the tender age of 30. Erik Rhodes, born James Elliot Naughtin, died of a heart attack at his home in New York. The Sword has a touching tribute here, and here, and we are honestly, truly sad to see him go. He was a fascinating, fallible, and deeply honest human being who tried to find some small salvation through that honesty, interacting with fans and blogging online throughout his career. He was a truly compelling character in an industry full of idiots. And he was really hot, if you're into those big muscley dudes. And basically, steroids and other drugs did him in. Let him be a cautionary tale. He was one of the last true 'stars' too, and this feels truly like the end of an era. And jesus. 30.
