DeWayne here,,well another promising porn model calls it quits after being abused & swindled by the shady side of Gay Porn.In explaining his severence of ties to Gay Porn Blair Mason wrote the following final enty on his blog “This is Blair” he deleted his blog on Nov 22,2007.

I plan on keeping this post in the back end of my Blog for future reference & transfer to a new Blog/Forum. I do respect Blair and if should ever ask me too remove this post I will of course do so. 11/19/07

Farewell

Hello everyone. I am writing this one last blog entry to let you all know this site will be taken down one week from today. This decision is pivoted on my eagerness to cut all ties from me to the porn industry. I am also deleting my MySpace. For those of you who will be sad to see me go, I am sorry. Life is more valuable than I thought before. The past year has taught me so much.

I have grown as a person, as an artist, and as a spiritual being. The lessons learned were sometimes very expensive and very hard to swallow, but I learned them and I am better equipped now than I was before to take on the battles that life gives me. What seemed important a year ago seems at best futile now and at worst downright insignificant.

Family. Friends. Love. Joy. Freedom. Hard work. Dreams. Nothing is more important than those. The most important is love. I know, I know. It sounds a little trite and somewhat hypocritical for me to say something that has been paraphrased from the “Good Book” countless times throughout history. If there is anything I took away from the oppression of dogmatic religious philosophy is this: when everything is going wrong; when the entire world is crumbling under your feet all you have to do is throw a little love in the storm and it uncompromisingly happens to cease. I have learned that the hard way more times than one.

Love for the past year has been divvied up in this manner: love from me went out to things such as money, fame, recognition, escapism, drama, victimization, rationalization, and exploitation of my own body. As disgraceful as it all sounds, it was who I was. Those things have lost their flow of affection from me quite abruptly within the last few weeks. It is funny what the human mind will do to survive. Rationalization was my middle name for the past year. I am not complaining by any means. I am just trying to tell you that I have changed. I cannot expect to escape without explaining what I changed from and what I changed into.

You probably know what I was. I was a porn performer. I was self exploitative. I loved money and the thirst for fame and fortune could never be quenched. That is who I was.

It has been said that money is the root of all evil. I would refine that to say that the root of all evil is the love of money, not necessarily money itself. Money has done great and wonderful things to help people gain control of their lives, to fight poverty, to fight disease, to fight hunger, and to build safe homes for homeless youth. Money, my friends, is not evil.

The system could do itself some good to work the kinks out of itself, but as far as money itself is concerned, it is not evil. However, once people start loving money more than people, damages arise and hearts are shredded into morsels for the heathens that feed off of the vulnerable and weak.

That is who I was, though. I can say that the soul inside me is still the same. The darkness could not compete with the light inside me. I have learned so much. I know more now than before. I guess that is the only way I have changed. I have gained valuable knowledge about the world, business, love, lust, and most importantly about myself. Learning about yourself is the most difficult thing to do. You must allow your walls to come down and look deep inside yourself without reservation and really take a scalpel to who you are and what you want and do not want.

Basically the thing I need to do now that I have learned who I am is to uphold myself to a higher standard than before. I am taking down this short lived site in hopes of severing any ties to the porn industry. I am also deleting my myspace page as “Blair” and when the time comes I will put up a music page with all the music I will be creating in college and at home. I am also going to be putting up a bran spanking new website devoted to the promotion and merchandising of my music, art, video projects, and much, much more.


I am no longer a sex object. A year ago I thought that to become a sex object was the ultimate goal in life. Now I know that it is a silly and unsubstantial life. One of which I shall not pursue violently anymore. I will appreciate what I have and acknowledge what I do not have. But, I know I have better things to offer the world than my body alone. My mind, spirit, love, and creativity will by far supersede my looks in life span and in measure.

To all of you who have supported me thus far, thank you. You have pushed me to this next level I am about to go to.

Much love, Blair Troy;)

    Troy Thank you and I offer you a deep Thank You we came for the boy but stayed for the young man and his thoughts,musings,his wild ride. You of course must do this for the best of reasons Self preservation AND Growth.
    I do hope any future Blog you will let some of us know where to find you online.

    I met you at Pride in San Diego a time we now know was stressful for you. I wanted to say hi to see this Blair with the remarkable Blog.

    As I suspected from reading I saw a somewhat shy guy, after a year still surprised when someone recogn
    ized them.
    I met a guy who I imediatly recognised had a good heart and really was to good for this heartless biz.

    I also pegged you as a Survivor and an Observer you were very aware of everyone there watching & soaking up your envioremnt.

    Those traits will serve you well.

    Enjoy College and your art,your growth and when the time is right continue Blogging (I recommend Blogger for ease of use & all the things you can do with it)

    You will have something interesting and thought provoking to share no matter what you do.

    If you should ever want some free advice feel free to email me(its on my blog)

    But you have already followed the best advice I could have given you. When you arrived in your new state one of the first actions & pix you posted was the shot in the River.

    When I saw that “River Self Baptism’I knew what you were doing “Cleansing away the last year and Renewal in Spirit”

    I smiled and yes a little teary but I was happy you got away and saved yourself,,Take care and Wishing you all the Best! You deserve no less!

    Troy,

    I can’t even remember how I found you. I clicked some MySpace page which led me to another & then another until I finally found your old site. I’m really glad I found you. I’ve enjoyed reading your posts, especially these past few weeks. Like the others here I am very proud of you for growing up and leaving the adult industry. I have nothing (at all) against anyone in the “industry” (I’ve worked in it myself at one time), but I can honestly say that very few people in it are truly happy and content with their lives. I wish you the very best at everything you set out to do. You’re an amazing you man…good hearted, intelligent, hard working, &…yes, very handsome. :-)

    The best is yet to come. Good luck to you, my friend.

    Joey

    Troy,

    Good luck and best wishes in all of your future endeavours. Although we only got to know the Blair persona that you sold to us there were always hints of the real you desperate to come out. I am glad the time has finally come for you to be you and not some sexual object for others to purchase and desecrate.

    God Bless You.

    I have been reading your blog for over a month and have enjoyed reading your posts. Thank you for writing this blog. You seem like a great person and I applaud your decision to leave the industry. Troy, I wish the best to you as you pursue other interests.

    Peace and Love!

    Troy:

    I loved reading about your life, and wish I could have actually meet you in person. I sincerely wish you happiness and know you will find it soon. I thought that your “talking” blogs were the best, as it was fun to hear your voice and see a real person. As stated above, it would be nice to hear from you again, when fate has dealt you a better hand.

    With great love and respect.

    echoing the thoughts of other i too write to wish you well with your future life. i’m sure you’ve made the correct decision. as just one anonymous voice among many, and someone who never met you and most probably never will, i feel strange leaving such personal remarks of a website, but i figure you deserve it. what always impressed me was your honesty and intelligence and i’m sure they will carry you far in life if you use them well.
    i intend to keep a portrait shot of you that i saved on my computer and will think of you again, hopefully not for what you were but what you’re starting to become.
    once again, good luck and take care.

    p.s. i sure you’re right about love…

    All I can say is “Thank you” for your blog.

    And “Good luck” with your new direction

    Both meant from the heart.

    Troy, a True Man

    Thank you for sharing a part of your life. Breifly went back thorough all your posts this years. What hair!! But you said it best 5-15-07 “Everything Works Out . . .” and it most definitely will happen for you. Your blog has been amazing in the scope of topics and will be missed. You are an amazing individual and everybody would be blest to have someone like you in their lives. You have matured so much over this year and I have learned from your journey. Copy this blog onto a disk and place it in the back of a drawer. Have a great future. Always be true to yourself. Enjoy a can of Vernos.
    Take care! Dream Hard!

  1. I became interested in Blair Mason/Troy because he is beautiful. I started looking around on the internet for him because he seemed to have something different. Then I found his 2007 blog (which is still partially up) and wow. This was a guy I wanted to talk to and meet. Porn is visual and style over substance and here was guy that full of substance, and much more together than I was at that age (even including the porn acting)
    I just found this blog and saw what he did. A small part of me is sad he left the public light as it felt like not being able to finish a story that just got interesting. But mostly I am overjoyed and relieved. He got out with his wits intact.
    If you ever hear from him, give him my best.

  2. last I checked spring of 2010 Blair seemed okay updating his “real life” Social Nets. I checked in and backed out respecting his privacy.He is missed for sure!
