Reese Rideout aka Cletus Van Damm aka Nicholas Ryan aka Nick Dent (the last being his real name...maybe) has a complicated life: He is supposedly straight but gets paid to have sex with men on film and then gets asked to talk about this to various media outlets. He and his wife, Becki, have appeared in the British Marie Claire, on The Bill Cunningham Show and, as of last night, on VH1 for a one-off special called I'm Married To A... In this case, the "A...," is a self-identified heterosexual man who regularly ejaculates in the arms (and in the other things) of another dude.

Gay-for-pay makes for the most inherently fascinating scene studies you could ever wish for. Having sex with a man would seem to negate any claim of heterosexuality, and yet, there are plenty of guys who claim that doing all sorts of things with other people's penises (including bottoming, which Dent does) is just a job, just something to "get over with" (as Dent says) on the way to the bank.

Taking into account a metric like the Kinsey Scale, which considers even incidental gay sex a deviation from absolute heterosexuality (meaning that Reese is at least a 1 — predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual — if not a 2 — predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual), it seems a little disingenuous to call a man who regularly has sex with men totally straight, regardless the reason. But ultimately that could be just a semantic argument. Sexuality is complicated, and if Dent feels he has it all figured out and can use it to make some cash, he's doing something right.

That said and despite Becki's claim that she is "proud" of her husband's porno accolades, her discomfort on I'm Married To A... was palpable. Just as his body language suggests he really enjoys gay sex despite what he says, hers suggests that she is not nearly as OK with her husband's job as she lets on. (Keep in mind that she "married into" this lifestyle.) Maybe he's just a better actor than she is?
