Behind the Star Billy Santoro

Billy Santoro had done precisely what we’re taught to do as children:  go to school, get a degree, get a job.  At the age of 37, however, Billy Santoro was not yet completely satisfied with his life.  He had the job, he had the apartment, he had love, but he needed more.

Billy Santoro began filming his sexual exploits and sharing them with the world via his social media.  Having quickly amassed a following on social media, Billy Santoro was soon approached by a number of porn studios.  In the summer of 2013, he made his gay porn debut with ChaosMen.

Behind the Star Jimmy Durano

Born and raised in Brazil in an Italian-Portuguese home, Jimmy Durano never foresaw himself becoming an International porn star.  Instead, he sought motivation from a black and white image he found back in high school. 

“This dude… He was like my main focus.  I want to look like that.  I want to dance like that.  He was just like… a black and white photo of a dancer.”

Dance, however, is not were Jimmy initially ended up.  He went on to study industrial design in Brazil prior to moving to Seattle, where he completed his studies in graphic design.  After finishing his studies in Seattle, Jimmy began supplementing his income by go-go dancing.  While working at a gig, the photographer approached Jimmy regarding filming a porn scene.  Although initially reluctant, in 2009 Jimmy agreed to film his first scenes with CollegeDudes 24/7.
