Ballet Dancer Doing Gay Porn

Last year Jeppe Hansen was studying dance at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, before he was asked to leave the program. The reason? Jeppe had appeared in a gay porn video. While we have all read stories of people losing their jobs due to their porno past, this story takes a different twist. Jeppe actually sees this incident as an opportunity rather than a loss. The door is now wide open to pursue even more adult film work.

Jeppe, who goes by the name Jett Black, says his first gay porn appearance was initially a new way of expression. And he liked it. Jeppe sees more freedom to articulate his artistic expression than dancing ballet. So this past April he moved to NYC to pursue gay porn full-time.

He said in an interview recently, "Being a ballet dancer is restrictive. Everyone tells you what you have to do, how to look, what to weigh, how to perform [and] be the artist you are."

In that same interview Jeppe also feels that the school was shortsighted for not seeing that gay porn could also be considered art.

"To me no one can tell me what art is. Art is what you and I define art by."

Regardless of the fallout Jeppe is happy to have started a debate on art and sexuality.

"What I wanted to do was to create a conversation about what's acceptable, where our sexuality visions and views are going, and what you can do as an artist -- and within the parameters of being an artist -- with sexuality."
