MONTREAL — Gay porn star Jesse Santana announced his return to the adult film industry after a two-year absence. He will be performing a scene with JD Phoenix for Icon Male's upcoming release, "Dirty Schoolboys."

“This was the second time in my career that I’ve taken an extended break from performing,” Santana explained. “I do it from time to time to remind myself that I’m a real person behind my persona.”

According to co-star Phoenix, performing with Santana was a fantasy come true.

“Before I got into porn I used to jack off to Jesse Santana a lot,” Phoenix said. “He has this presence about him — and an ass that was made by the gods. Not many guys can measure up to him.”

Icon Male director Nica Noelle said she was also impressed by Santana’s star power.

“Some performers just have ‘it’, a rare type of charisma that sets them apart,” said Noelle. “Jesse has a quiet intensity, and so much sex appeal. I was a little intimidated to be honest.”

The catalyst for Santana’s return to adult films was none other than Phoenix, who requested him as a potential scene partner.

“Recently I started shooting for Nica Noelle and we really connected and enjoy working with each other,” Phoenix explained. “She’s always asking me who I want to shoot with, so I thought I’d take a chance and ask if Jesse would do it.”

“JD and I have a bit of a personal history,” Santana said. “Perhaps I saw this as a scene on his personal bucket list. I was happy for the opportunity, and it was a wonderful experience.”

Now that he’s in front of the camera again, Santana hopes to cross some things off his own bucket list, including bottom fisting, TS scenes, NakedCombat, bondage and more condom-free scenes.

Santana says he’s “ready to surpass what I’ve done before and give the fans everything they’ve been missing from me.”
