Jerrod Carmichael Dishes On His Favorite Gay Porn Stars

Comedian Jerrod Michael has had himself an eventful couple of weeks. After making his SNL debut and coming out in his HBO comedy special Rothaniel, he’s been riding the high of being in the spotlight and finally being out to the public.

On Howard Stern’s radio show this week, Carmichael spoke on gay porn and the impact it had on his life.

“I think being closeted probably attracted me to versions of secret sex,” the comedian said on the show. He highlighted examples of getting it on places where people can engage in intimate activities that are private and apart from the home, such as “stairwells” and “cars.”

Stern clarified: “in other words, porn that deals with keeping it a secret…like you’re doing something taboo.” 

Carmichael went on to list all of his favorite porn stars, including adult entertainment actor Evan Nox. Carmichael jokes that he: “wish [he] prepared better for [listing his favorite porn stars] cause [he] wants to fuck some of them.” And honestly, Jerrod, we get it. Go off. 

He spoke on how he used straight porn as a “cleanse” to remove the attraction to men he felt. “As a teenager, [I would] jerk off to gay porn, feel the wrath of God’s judgment, and then go jerk off to straight porn as if it cleansed it as if that was the lamb’s blood to wash away the gay scent.” He described the notion as “silly” and how “crazy” it is that that kind of shame works for people.

Carmichael came out as gay to his conservative parents then very recently came out to the public via his comedy special, now streaming on HBO Max. The need to hide had become more and more prevalent for the comedian as he was coming to terms with his sexuality. His search history might be evidence of that hiding, but the comedian is hiding no longer.
