Jonathan de Falco has traded in his
soccer cleats to play ball with gay porn stars.
The 26-year-old de Falco retired as a
professional soccer player for the Belgium team Racing Mechelen to
pursue a career as an adult film actor. Working under the stage name
of Stany Falcone, he's already appeared in films for several porn
websites, including UKNakedMen.com and HardBritLads.com.
The 5-foot-10, 170 pound de Falco began
his new career roughly seven months ago, according to the Dutch daily
“That's all gone very quickly, I had
not expected such a success,” de Falco told the paper.
“The football [professional soccer]
world is not ready for gay players. There is too much prejudice and
generally low tolerance.”
“For several months I have a
boyfriend. Previously, I had a girlfriend once, but I always felt
attracted to men,” he said.
“Since I was 20 I have been in gay
circles, but when I played soccer nobody noticed anything. If my
orientation would have been known, there would have been undoubtedly
problems,” de Falco added.
