We're six episodes into MTV's The Real World XXV Vegas starring former Fratpad/Fratmen star Spencer. I haven't really discussed Spencer/Dustin's time on the show since I was asked to remove certain content from my site by the folks behind Fratmen. On this week's episode one of the roommates left the show and Dustin reacted badly to the idea of a potential gay male replacement roommate. He made homophobic statements about being afraid of a gay roommate smelling his underwear. He's says that over time he's apparently developed a paranoia about gay men approaching him. You can watch the video HERE.
"...I was one of the original cast members. So going into the Fratpad… nobody knew where that was gonna go. The first month there, I didn’t even take my clothes off. It was one of those things that was gradual. For the first month, you kinda just scope out the situation, chatting with the members. And then the bar gets raised. And over time, you get a comfort level of what’s going on. A lot of people think it was just one of those things where I threw all my inhibitions into the wind. It wasn’t… It was a gradual thing I grew with."
The Fratpad open in the middle of June 2006 and by the first week of July 2006 Dustin had left the site. So that's doesn't even provide him with the month of time he describes. I also have screencaps of Spencer naked from that time period which refute his non-nudity for the first month claim. He returned to the site a few months later and in the interview discusses a video with fellow model David:
"The video that I did with David, the one that’s a big deal… it was mainly because we had never done anything like that before. It was always solos; we’d never done a “duo” scene. And my boss came in and said he wanted to do one but didn’t know who would do it. And at that time, I had been there for a couple years and I was like, you know what? I’ll do it because I wanna see the company grow."
I'm not sure if he's referring to his Fratmen video with David where he performed oral sex in Australia or his private Fratpad pay-per-view duo where he both topped and bottomed. The later happened in September 2006, not quite the "couple years" that he describes. The Australia video was also filmed in Fall 2006. None of these are huge issues, but they contribute to a narrative that Dustin is selling downplaying his porn past. He even goes on to say "I’m not trying to cover anything up" but that is in direct contradiction to Fratmen demanding the removal of all hardcore content from multiple websites. Andy Dehnart from Reality Blurred interviewed Real World producer and creator John Murray for an upcoming feaure in Playboy who said:
“I think he’s talked with the site and his former employer, and I think he may have been working with them to try to get some of it taken down. But I’m not really involved in that, and I don’t know specifically if that’s the case, but that’s sort of generally what I’ve heard.”
It looks like Dustin wants it both ways. While he's actively working to get all of his hardcore past erased, Dustin is still associating with the porn company that started his career. Many industry folks saw Dustin a few weeks ago at the Phoenix Forum. Dustin was there attending the gay porn convention with Fratmen. I'm suprised that this self-confessed panty-sniffer could deal with the anxiety of being around all those gay people. Maybe's he's looking to turn his new reality stardom into a bigger porn career while attempting to brush his hardcore porn past under the rug. Either way his apparent hypocrisy and homophobia are worth discussing. Here's more of Dustin unclothed from those first few weeks of the Fratpad in 2006.
