Gay Adult Film Star Arpad Miklos Dead at 45


Arpad Mikos (aka Peter Kozma), a NYC-based gay adult film actor who appeared in more than 58 films, took his own life sometime on Sunday. Howard Bragman spoke with writer Randal Lynch and broke the news on his web show Gwissues.

  1. Actually David Porn Stars are a big part of the gay community. They may not be political motivated but they are also human beings at the end of the day and not pieces of meat.
    I will miss him and am very sorry I did not get to meet him.
    There are thousands of men who commit suicide every year but unless your famous nobody cares. I know it hard but men Straight or Gay need to be able to express their feelings.

  2. David Hearne said "Why are porn stars of general interest to the gay community? Seriously, is this considered part of our culture or common interest?"

    David...maybe it was because he was a GAY PORN actor. Porn is not just for heterosexuals, you know!

  3. Sad ! As a former male escort myself, I can attest to the fact that it can take it`s tollon a person. After awhile , I felt like a piece of meat. My self-esteem went downhill and the shame starts to build. It isn`t productive, and I never even had to do it in front of a camera. During my escort years, I was so lonely, I wanted a relationship but no one took me serious. It was just sex, sex , sex and when you aren`t able to form an emotional and intimate bond with another person, it can have severe psychological effects. Everyone just sees you as a sex object, nothing more. I can`t speak for porn stars, but I know Arpad was also an escort. One thing that bothers me about the gay community, is that so many gay men judge a person on looks. If you`re hot, handsome and well built, you usually don`t have a problem, but if you`re a skinny geek with glasses, nobody gives you a second glance. It`s all so superficial. I`m happy I got out of the escort business unscathed. And I don`t care what anybody says, people doing porn and escorts long for acceptance in a society that frowns upon porn and prostitution.

  5. Incredible ... just yesterday after learning the news of his death, and after being shocked with grief, he came to see me tonight in a dream .... it was great we did not sex or anything else, only we looked and I immediately saw in him a strength and a strange sense of peace and security that expressed towards me. He spoke me with irony and hugged me and I'd laugh at him. In the dream I was really good, I really would not want to wake up.
    Thanks Arpad, I hope that wherever you are now, God protect you because also if we so far apart, you was in my opinion a very good and nice person.
    A strong and big kiss for you by Luca from Sicily.

  6. It seems that we all forget that behind the porn star was a beathing, thinking person, with another life but it would appear it was no a happy one, RIP!

  7. Most gay "stud" types start to show their age in their 40's
    -- or when they turn to plastic surgery out of desperation. We can probably name a few.
