Porn Pulse: Jasper Robinson Dead At 21

And yet another gay porn actor has, reportedly, taken his own life.

The latest to fall is Jasper Robinson, a tall, slender 21-year-old Washington native who, according to The Advocate Magazine, called San Francisco home. Robinson, who had the words “chaos” and “peace” tattooed across his shoulders, appeared in scenes for Helix Studios, Boycrush, NextDoor and Cocky Boys during his three year run in adult film work.

And, of course, tributes and condemnations poured in.

“I’m still in shock and can’t believe he’s gone,” tweeted gay porn actor Phillip Ashton. “I’m def going to miss him and all the amazing times we had together. Those that knew Jasper he had touched everyone in one way or another. He was a very outgoing blunt one with nature kinda guy.”

A Greek commentator on the Towleroad website was far less kind, seizing on Robinson’s death to blast the entire porn industry.

“It’s official: Escorting and porn should carry health advisory labels,” wrote Μίχος Τσίμας. “I wonder when LGBT organisations are going to start addressing the huge fallout from prostitution and drugs in our communities. They keep going on about trans murders and suicides, conveniently omitting that most of these deaths are directly or indirectly linked to drugs and prostitution.”

Robinson apparently died on Dec. 13, with news breaking last weekend of his demise. He is the third twenty-something porn actor reported to have committed suicide recently. The deaths of Zac Stevens, 25, and Dimitri Kane, 20 were reported in November.
