LGBTQ Adult Film Stars Get Candid About COVID-19 In Revealing Documentary “Pornstar Pandemic,” Coming July 28 To DVD & Digital

Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired Worldwide rights to the documentary “Pornstar Pandemic: The Guys”, an intimate examination of LGBTQ adult actors and their lives during the COVID-19 quarantine. Directed by adult director Edward “EJ” James, and executive produced by Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff, “Pornstar Pandemic: The Guys” will arrive July 28 on DVD and all major VOD platforms.

The entire world is shut down due to Cover-19. The adult film industry is closed for an indefinite time period and its actors, directors and production staffs are left idle. Adult film director and producer Edward James “EJ” and independent film distributor Rich Wolff decide to make a documentary based on what adult entertainers do when they are not in front of the camera. Pornstar Pandemic investigates the daily lives and routines of some of gay porn’s biggest and newest names, covering all angles of the gay porn scene from gay to bi-sexual to gay for pay.

“The impetus behind this documentary was the fact that audiences rarely see behind-the-scenes of what adult performers do when they are not in front of the camera”, said EJ. “Their lives are often more similar to the average person than many think, and we wanted to explore that, especially during our current situation. We’re all in this together, and it’s important to highlight that fact.”

“Pornstar Pandemic: The Guys” features three of the top adult stars in the industry, quarantined and living their lives in stasis. Follow along with Dante Colle, Pierce Paris, DeAngelo Jackson, as well as two newcomers (no pun intended) Elijah Wilde and Jack Loft. The doc features the actors during their daily activities, along with their personal thoughts on the current state of the industry and their own roles in it, how the shutdown has affected their lives and livelihood, and what’s next once everyone can return to work.

“I was curious what other industries looked like during the shutdown”, said Wolff. “One night, EJ and I were catching up, and I asked what his talent was up to while their business was more or less closed. We ultimately decided to find out.”
