Florida Teen Allegedly Suspended for Performing in Sean Cody Film Allowed Back to School: VIDEO


Robert Marucci, an 18-year-old Florida teen, will be allowed back to school, officials said, after students protested his dismissal, which was allegedly for his participation in a Sean Cody film.

MarucciEarlier this week, a Redditor on the subreddit GayBros posted about Marucci:

He got severely bullied and, instead of helping him, the school will not let him graduate due to him causing a "campus disturbance". They suspended him for 10 days, which leads to an automatic FA (failure from absences). Several students planned to protest by wearing support shirts, making posters, and skipping a class. The principle is threatening to automatically expel any student who joins in.

I am still very closeted, and it hurts to hear friends and family think this guy is a sick and disturbed person...

Marucci said he turned to making gay adult films in order to help pay his family's bills.

Marucci's mother spoke with Local 6 News: "She (Dr. Sullivan) flat out told me that my son was expelled not just suspended, he was expelled due to his explicit, adult, lifestyle career."

The school will not say why Marucci was suspended but after the student's dismissal and protests by fellow students (who say the school threatened them as well) began making national headlines, he has been allowed back.

Said the school district's spokesperson: "In this particular case, we had an investigation, which is now complete, and the student is welcomed to come back to talk to Dr. Sullivan about his educational options."

  1. He's 18. Porn is legal to make and to buy. Hell yes he'd better be allowed back in school. As long as he's not making porn on school grounds, it's no one's business what he does on his own time. I've found that high school teachers, bless their hearts, can often have difficulty with that transition from minor to adult during senior year. In this case, the principal should have made another choice but instead allowed his personal ick factor to make the decision for him. Letting the kid back in school was the right thing to do.

    That said, I feel terrible for him. Doing porn of your own volition because you enjoy the sex and the exhibitionism is one thing. Doing it because you're poor and need money to help your family makes me concerned that he's being manipulated or coerced. I hope he comes through it okay.

  2. There are too many stupid adults running our schools.

  3. Does anyone else find it sickening that Sean Cody recruits 18 year old high school students to appear in its films?

    Aren't some of those films bareback?

    Every porn studio should have a 21 age minimum

  4. Legal age in the US is 18. If you're old enough to fight in a war, you're old enough to do an adult video if you want. It's the risk of coercion that I worry about.

  5. @The Milkman: At the risk of revealing too much of my own habits, I have seen the films this young man has been in, and first, he flat out states that he is in high school, so there is no denial of his age. And either he is the world's greatest actor, or he was legit have a grand ol' time doing the films. It may be helping pay the bills, but he seems to genuinely be enjoying the "work."
    Of greater concern, is that these films do not employ safer sex practices. That is the area where I fear he is most likely being manipulated or misinformed. It's one thing for adults in their mid or late 20's to knowingly participate in high-risk sexual activities, but this boy is barely a man. His capacity for making informed decisions is less seasoned.

  6. Bareback should not be in any adult film.

    BTW - "adult film" seems like a bad euphemism.

  7. I'd love to be all sex positive and stuff but it kind of saddens me that a barely legal still in high school student has to perform in bareback orgies to support his family. Was college or community college not an option? He should save some of that porn money for therapy bills. Was his mother too old to be a sex worker herself? What kind of parenting is this? Physical maturity doesn't equal emotional maturity.

  8. Is it even a private christian/catholic school ?

    Posted by: Andy Towlette | Jan 21, 2014 2:50:23 PM

  9. One of his scenes is a "mountain getaway" gangbang. All bareback of course.

    I fapped to it. That David guy with the ginger beard is hot.

    A high school kid, though, not so much.

    For research purposes:

  10. Dumb immature people doing dumb immature things, news at 10.

  11. "Was college or community college not an option?"

    You do realize that those cost money, correct? If he felt the need to do porn to pay his family's bills, I doubt he has a college fund just lying around.

    And who is to say that he isn't planning on using some of that money for college? He wouldn't be the first performer, even the first Sean Cody performer, to do porn to help pay for school.

  12. I'm more intrigued by men of a certain age, though I can understand the appeal of this young man. I assume that when he stated in his film that he was in high school, he didn't also report being under 18... otherwise Sean Cody Inc. would have trouble on their hands (assuming they don't already). Agreed that his age is less of a concern than the risks he's taken, medical, professional, and social. Physical and emotional maturity certainly do not appear simultaneously. One can be quite mature and insightful as a teen, while I know several middle-aged men whose emotional maturation seems to have halted somewhere during the Reagan administration. The risk of coercion is the primary issue here for me. It's my understanding that male porn actors don't make very much money compared to their female counterparts. Because of that, it makes me wonder whether there were other factors at work in deciding to make porn at such a young age. In the long run, I suppose I should mind my own business. But when public schools (assume this is a public HS) expel someone for it, then I get troubled. Expelling someone from high school will in my opinion do more to ruin someone's life and livelihood than appearing in a handful of adult films in one's teens.

  13. I don't have any problem with an 18-year-old doing porn, and I don't have a problem with it being bareback.

    What I hate are the tattooed "actors" and the excessive facial hair that some of them have.

  14. Disgusting.

  15. Robert will be allowed back in school on Wednesday & allowed to graduate. The school district here in Brevard County is backpedaling furiously.

  16. Florida is a weird state for public education which is why they rank so low in the US. Many schools have morality clauses especially with sex.

  17. People are coming down hard on the principal, but I tend to believe her heart was in the right place. What kind of signal does it send when highschoolers are launching protest campaigns about a fellow student's right to be exploited in porn films?

    Posted by: greystoke | Jan 21, 2014 3:11:04 PM

  18. Oh please. If this was a straight kid doing straight porn, he would not have been bullied by schoolmates (he would have been hailed as a hero) and the principal would not have expelled him.

    Give me a break with this "her heart was in the right place" BS. The only place her heart was in was bigotry.

    Posted by: crispy | Jan 21, 2014 3:15:55 PM

  19. @Greystroke: Disagree. If the principal's "heart were in the right place", she would have engaged a social worker and/or tried to get the kid counselling, and maybe at least have investigated the (alleged) underlying economic issues.

    Knee-jerk expulsion is for soulless bureaucrats who don't give a damn about anything more than putting in their 30 years and getting a public pension.

  20. So... the Principal watches gay porn, huh? Perhaps she should be fired.

    Posted by: Burt | Jan 21, 2014 3:18:11 PM

  21. Kind of sickening to hear all the bareback Nazis sounding off in here. Gays who condemn other gays for their sexual practices are just as judgmental and bigoted as fundamentalist preachers who call all gays perverts.

  22. "What kind of signal does it send when highschoolers are launching protest campaigns about a fellow student's right to be exploited in porn films?"

    All work for an employer is exploitation. That's why you get paid for it.

    I think it's great that highschoolers would recognize his freedom to work, and not be homophobic about the video he appeared in.

    I think he should require an apology from the school, and get all penalties resulting from his work (and their response, and his reaction to their response) removed from his record. He should be provided supplemental education, at their expense, to replace the lost days of schooling, and he should be compensated for any lost work hours during the time such education takes place.

  23. @MILKMAN
    Men in straight porn make substantially less than women, but the pay in gay porn is not bad, which is why there are so many gay for pay performers.

    About four years ago or so, a scout for a studio offered me $3000 for a weekend shoot, plus travel expenses, hotel stay, and a per diem for food. I can't say that I wasn't tempted, but I politely declined.

  24. Ahh, Florida. You're still such a sh*thole.

    Posted by: D.R.H. | Jan 21, 2014 3:31:47 PM

  25. The "help my family better its economic position" argument is kind of nebulous.

    And what kind of mother lets her son do gay porn to pay the family's bills?

    I know that there are some mothers and fathers who pimp their kids, both literally and figuratively, but the mother doesn't seem like pure trailer trash, and the kid himself seems at least half bright. (And totally hot.)

    Yeah, and you can bet that the principal moistened her granny panties watching this kid's work. Then hypocritically expelled him.
