News: Jesse Santana Makes Cocky Move

In a surprise move, rising porn star Jesse Santana has decided to continue his award-winning work only online. Cockyboys.com has announced that the supercute model, who signed with the Web site in May 2007 while also doing exclusive film work for Jet Set Men, will exit DVD production and appear just on Cockyboys.com.

“All of my DVD options were requiring me to give up my Web deal,” Santana says, “so I really gave it a lot of thought. The real turning point for me was a discussion with a bunch of my friends over what to do. A friend of mine said, ‘When’s the last time anyone of our generation bought a DVD?’ ”

Out of the mouths of babes…

“I’m speechless,” says Kyle Majors, who founded Cockyboys less than a year ago. “Jesse is a major star and a truly wonderful person. He was under a lot of pressure from a lot of different angles. He chose Cockyboys. In my opinion, it’s the single most important endorsement we’ve received. To have Jesse shooting only for us says a lot about how we treat our models and where we are headed.”

In an e-mail sent to VincentLambert.com, Jet Set head Chris Steele confirmed that Santana had fulfilled his contractual obligations to the studio last month. “In general, Jet Set prefers not to keep models under contract for longer than one year,” Steele wrote. “We rarely re-sign an exclusive beyond that. We do so because we like to find new faces to keep our movies fresh and to have a varied array of hot guys in each of them. Jesse Santana is a true professional, an excellent performer and Jet Set wishes him the best in all his future endeavors!”

In the past year, Santana has appeared in the Jet Set films On Fire!, Just Add Water, Jet Set Fraternity Gang Bang 2, The F Word and Ass Cruisin’ With Aaron James. He has also done numerous personal appearances for the studio, including the 2007 Venus Show in Berlin, the 2008 AVN Expo in Las Vegas and the Grabby Awards in Chicago. He also won a GAYVN Award in February. Steele also revealed that Santana has already filmed an upcoming Canadian cable series titled Webdreams, a reality show that follows the production of On Fire!

Santana is the first major model to choose between a film studio and an Internet company, and industry insiders are saying that it signals the start of an important shift. “They are the future of the online porn,” Santana says of Cockyboys. “From the way they shoot to the way they treat their models, and the way they brand the site, anyone who works with us comments on how unique and different Cockyboys is. There is nothing typical about the way we do things and that’s part of what’s great about it. They also have a bunch of new ideas and new ways of doing things. It just feels right—it feels like my future professional home.”

Majors obviously agrees. “We are thrilled that Jesse is putting his career in our hands. We will undoubtedly take his career to the next level by continually growing his fan base and he will do the same for us as an anchor star on Cockyboys.com.”
