The 45th Throwback Thursday feature contains some rather adult language, because’s it my interview with gay porn performer Antonio Biaggi. I wrote this July 2012 article as a counterpoint to my July 2010 meal with gay for pay porn performer Malachi Marx (the 22nd stranger). While Malachi (not his real name) said he was straight and talked negatively about his experiences, Antonio is gay and apparently proud of his work, and I was curious to learn about a different take on the business.
Antonio was visiting Washington, DC, so we met at Beacon Bar & Grill for brunch, where I peppered him with questions about quite literally putting it all out there for work. The laid-back, thoughtful Antonio had a simple response: “It’s just a job,” he said with a shrug.
