Christian College Suspends Student For Spending His Weekends Filming Gay Porn in Miami

Last year, in the hey day of Juicy Campus there were unconfirmed rumors circulating that the porn site BrandyBelle.com, a local amateur porn site, had filmed scenes in dorm rooms at both University of Miami and Florida International University. I say unconfirmed because if the schools decided to investigate it the definitely kept it on the down low, but they certainly looked like dorm rooms at both schools to me. Add to that the various students I've known for sure that have paid for a text book or two by taking a trip in the back of bang bus or something. 


I guess the lesson here is unless a school wants to see its name in sensationalized headlines it shouldn't persecute students for their dabbling in porn. Grove City College in Pennsylvania is learning that the hard way. They've suspended John Gechter, a 22 year-old student who they found to have a burgeoning gay porn career. He spent his weekend in Miami and other cities filming scenes. He appeared on film under the stage name of "Vincent DeSalvo."

The Associated Press reports that he's now appealing that suspension. The American Civil Liberties Union and the Pittsburgh Delta Foundation, a gay advocacy group, are helping him in his fight. 

Grove City College is a private, Christian liberal arts college. The school is non-denominational, and students are not required to declare their faith. Though, it has been ranked as the third most politically conservative campus in America. The schools president has said, "the two tenets that this school is most about are faith and freedom." Apparently freedom doesn't apply to fucking on camera.
