Former Gay Porn Star “Joseph Sciambra” on the Stern Show

Joseph Sciambra, a former gay porn star was interviewed by Howard Stern about his journey into the darkest core of the gay underworld in San Francisco.

Joseph, who left the gay scene after a dramatic reconversion to the Catholic faith, says his quest for love and acceptance through sex began with pornography. At the age of eight, he one day naively flipped through a porn magazine left out by an older brother. This was followed by more graphic porn magazines. Then came masturbation and the urge to act out with others what he saw in the magazines.

Joseph admits that he still struggles with attraction to other men and with temptations to masturbate, but he says he has come to know that the love, acceptance, and peace he so ardently sought in sex with other men, Jesus now gives to him in abundance through a spiritual life.

For Joseph, same-sex attraction is a cross that God has asked certain people to bear for the redemption of the world. Now running a Catholic religious shop in Napa, California, Joseph says that there is genuine joy in carrying the cross. By uniting his sufferings with those of the suffering Jesus, Joseph believes he is helping to save his gay friends from a devilish fate he barely escaped.

According to Joseph, many gay men have come to him, telling him of their unhappiness and their own similar experiences in the gay lifestyle. Joseph says he will speak first of his love for them. Then he will speak of how his encounter with and acceptance of God’s love saved him from being “swallowed by Satan.” He will tell them that gay sexual ecstasy is momentary and delusional, but God’s love is enduring, satisfying, and as real as it gets.

George Takei: I Regret Playing The ‘Naughty Gay Grandpa’ On The Howard Stern Show

George Takei is apologizing for discussing grabbing men in an interview with Howard Stern that took place just weeks before the “Star Trek” star was accused of groping an ex-model.

Takei, 80, appeared on “The Howard Stern Show” in October and was asked if he had ever grabbed anyone, and after a long pause, he did say he had grabbed men consensually, but not in a work or a power setting.

“Some people are kind of skittish, or maybe, um, uh, afraid, and you’re trying to persuade,” said Takei.

Stern even asked, jokingly, “Do we need to call the police?”

“Many have raised concern over a back-and-forth between Howard Stern and myself, where we joked about me touching men during my Star Trek days fifty years ago. Out of context, I agree that the joke was distasteful, and I’m very sorry he and I made fun out of a serious matter,” Takei wrote on Facebook.

“For decades, I have played the part of a ‘naughty gay grandpa’ when I visit Howard’s show, a caricature I now regret. But I want to be clear: I have never forced myself upon someone during a date.”
