Gay Porn Star Race Cooper Retires From Biz
SAN FRANCICO — Falcon Studios Group announced today that performer Race Cooper has officially retired from adult entertainment.
With nearly 50 releases for Falcon Studios Group and over six years in the business, Cooper “has left a legacy of exceptional erotica marked with his supercharged and charismatic performances,” the studio said.
Spending most of his time in the industry as a Raging Stallion Exclusive, Cooper launched his career in 2009 and quickly rose to the top of the gay porn food chain as one of the top performers in the industry.
Along the way, Cooper served as the production coordinator for Raging Stallion, appeared in scenes for nearly every major studio and became one of the first black gay adult performers to be heavily featured in fisting and fetish releases.
With multiple releases from Raging Stallion, Club Inferno, Fisting Central and Fetish Force, his Falcon Studios Group scene list makes him one of the most shot performers in the company’s history.
Cooper was a producer, director and partner involved in the studio Edger 9, titles of which Raging Stallion released.
Additionally, he started a successful personal training company in recent years, and produced his popular “Core With Race Cooper” workout videos that were consistently featured in various issues of Falcon Studios Group bi-weekly e-newsletter, HUNT e-Zine.
Cooper said he will now focus all of his time and energy on his role as an entrepreneur and growing his successful personal training business and opening a gym in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood.
"I have lived my life in porn with no regrets. I have enjoyed some amazing experiences, and met some wonderful individuals,” he said. “But all things have to come to an end, and I felt I needed to officially retire so that I can now focus on the road ahead. Some may know that I have been focused on personal training and physical education for the past two years. It has provided me growth in more ways than I imagined, while at the same time helping to change the lives of others.
"Opportunities are now being presented for me to move my practice to a new location so that I can acquire and develop my own gym/training facility. It's important to make a clear separation from work in porn, to work as a business owner, as well as let fans of and those in porn know ... that they are appreciated. I wanted to sincerely thank my fans for their support, and I hope to continue to make them proud as I begin this transition as an entrepreneur."
Falcon Studios Group President Tim Valenti said: “Race Cooper is a true superstar, an amazing friend of the Falcon Studios Group and a brilliant man. The entire family at Falcon Studios Group wishes him all the success in the world and thanks him for his countless contributions to our company both as an employee and performer.”
