Porn. It’s one of those things we just don’t like to talk about. But by all estimates, at least half of us watch it on a regular basis. For the most part, when it comes to porn, we’re happy to consume but we wouldn’t want anything to do with it. Think about it. How would you react if you found out that a family member, a friend or anybody you knew for that matter, was working in porn? We’re not here to pass judgment, but you can’t deny the cognitive dissonance.
Now, being a non-straight kid in Israel during the 1980’s was no walk in the park. Jonathan Agassi, then Jonathan Langer, from the small city of Holon, suffered throughout his childhood from bullying, from rejection and even from sexual abuse.
But Jonathan made it through the rough years and eventually, he would grow up to become the most well known Israeli gay porn star. But, as is usually the case, his trauma didn’t stay behind.
Tomer Heyman’s documentary, “Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life” Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life” chronicles Jonathan’s story and is premiering on April 11 at Atlanta Georgia.
So without further ado, the one and only, Yonatan Agassi.
