Many people know Brent Corrigan (also known as Sean Paul Lockhart) through his prolific gay porn career. Others might know him thanks to James Franco’s porn biopic, King Cobra, which was loosely based on Corrigan’s life (though he was quite displeased with the results).

But after flirting with mainstream movies for a while, Corrigan returned to porn in a big way, and some are wondering what made him come back. In a new interview, he now gives an explanation.

Brent Corrigan Ultra Fan

Brent Corrigan is promoting his latest gay porn film these days, Ultra Fan, which he not only stars in, but also directed. It tells the story of a man who gets hijacked during a live cam show by a, well, “Ultra Fan”, and gets blackmailed into doing porn again.

Speaking with Australian website SameSameCorrigan explains how he, too, came back to doing porn films (though there was no hijacking involved).

“We were racking ourselves as filmmakers to make, direct, sell and distribute non-porn films only to get out and have them packaged as porn.

You know, a sexy thriller, a sexy comedy. We just pitted ourselves, our heart and soul for the world to see, only to be turned around and sold like porn.

So I thought, why not go back to porn and make good stories in porn?”
