Francois Sagat Opens Up On Gay Porn Suicides and Why He Quit the Business (via Queerty)
For a man with such a robust physique, gay porn phenomenon Francois Sagat chose a surprisingly understated way to announce his retirement from the adult film industry. There would be no going out with a bang. Last week he released a 16-seconds-long black-and-white video in which he turned to face the camera and uttered, “Hello, I’m François Sagat and from this day forward I’ve retired from porn.”
The 33-year-old Frenchman had already used his renown in the porn industry — he’s the face and, let’s face it, bottom of TitanMen — to branch out to a directing career, acting in slightly more mainstream films (Bruce LaBruce’s L.A. Zombies), and serving as a muse for numerous artists, photographers and clothing designers. Having enjoyed his work as a fashion model, Sagat is about to launch his own clothing line, beginning with T-shirts that he designed himself. He recently spoke with Queerty about why he felt it was time to change careers, the suicide of other gay porn stars, and whether the bareback trend in the industry is irresponsible.
What was behind the decision to announce your retirement in the video?
Actually, I stopped doing porn two years ago, but I didn’t make a public statement then. The last one I did was Incubus, which I shot in 2011. Some fans were waiting for new movies and I was a bit embarrassed to tell them that there would be no more. So I made this video that I shot last April at Disneyland to confirm I wasn’t making anymore porn.
