From the ‘The Truth Shall Set You Free’ files… Or, at least cost you $300 an hour.
Everyone remember the breathless drama over the ‘supposed’ ad that Brent Corrigan posted on Rentboy.com a couple of weeks ago? If not, read about it HERE.
Seems management at RB did a little investigating of their own, leading them to release this statement:
The ad was real, we confirmed the credit card belonged to the advertiser. It is our policy not to give out information about advertisers real names, but in this case, the credit card used to pay for the ad was under the model’s legal name and the billing address was confirmed by his credit card company. Rentboy.com has never commented on the ad until now, but we believe the model or his agent may be pulling a publicity stunt, obviously timed to coincide with fund-raising for his new video project. The advertiser logged in from an easy-to-trace IP address and turned off his ad as soon as it achieved notoriety. As the director of rentboy.com, I investigated the ad immediately when it came to our attention.
Big eye roll,
Sean Van Sant
Director of Rentboy.com
I love it: You simply cannot make this ridiculous shit up… It’s things this stupidly mishandled that confirm to me most guys in porn have the IQ of generic fabric softener. That’s right, I said it. They aren’t even as cultured, revered or intelligent as the good stuff that Amy Sedaris is hawking for Downy.
For now I patiently await a response from Corrigan, who will likely try to pin this non-discrete self-selling on raising money to help disadvantaged children with no feeling in their legs or teaching the homeless to color-coordinate while also dealing with a 50/50 poly-cotton blend found at Goodwill.
