Straight guy reveals how appearing in gay porn film with twin brother ruined his life

Ta'Leon Goffney went gay-for-pay in porn film with his brother

A straight model has revealed how appearing in a gay porn film with his twin brother made his life a ‘living hell’.

Ta’Leon Goffney, in 2004, appeared one time in a gay-for-pay film with his gay twin brother Keyontyli.

‘I always knew [my twin brother] was gay and sexually active,’ he said, ‘but to witness him being bottomed right before my very eyes as I had to play along was just too close for comfort’.

The 34-year-old told Queerty the adult film producers took advantage of ‘two naive, poverty-stricken kids from Camden, New Jersey’, and that when he first turned up to the set  in Vegas he was under the impression it was just an ‘upscale modeling gig’.

‘That experience damaged our brotherhood,’ Goffney said in the interview. ‘Although we never did anything sexual to one another it still ruined the family line between us because it obliterated any possible boundaries that he and I could ever have again.

‘It’s been 12 years since it happened and it’s still vivid in my mind as if it happened yesterday. I regret it to the fullest. Because that played a part in me losing the one person who was closest to me.’

He hasn’t spoken to his brother in two years.

Goffney claimed the producers pressured the two of them during the shoot, which made it all the more difficult.

‘We both felt like prostitutes because we were being filmed doing sex acts for money,’ he said. ‘And we are twins, so telepathically we both felt the degradation growing inside of us. It ruined our bond because we really took it too far. There’s just certain lines that siblings should never cross.’

Four years after the porn film, he was sentenced to three to eight years in prison for his part in the robbery of a Philadelphila beauty salon. When the production company got wind of the arrest, they sent out a press release alerting the media of his past with a free link to the video.

It was featured everywhere from Perez Hilton to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Nancy Grace to Saturday Night Live.

‘Countless other media outlets had exactly what they needed to make my 75-month prison sentence a living hell,’ he said, which made him realize how . ‘I was ostracized, attacked and harassed by inmates and prison guards all the way up until my release date.’

He added: ‘I spent a third of my sentence in solitary confinement due to the notoriety of my case. I was all over the television. When I was finally allowed to serve the remainder of my time in General Population the other inmates avoided me at all costs.

‘Even though I identify as a heterosexual male, I was ridiculed for being a “gay porn star.” I ate by myself, watched television by myself. They would even vacate the shower room when they saw me coming. They treated me like I had a terminal illness that was highly contagious.’

He said it ‘changed his perspective’ of what the LGBTI community goes through, heightening his empathy after being made to feel ‘less than human’.

But after being made free in June 2014, Goffney’s life has improved. He’s launched a modeling career, published a memoir called Infamy, and has a one-year-old son with his long-term girlfriend.
