Update on the gay porn star/burglar twins


One of the two twin brothers who have done gay porn together and are alleged to have committed a string of burglaries via rooftop break-ins has spoken out. Keyontyli Goffney told the Philadephia Daily News that his twin brother Taleon was the mastermind behind the burglaries and that he was merely the lookout. Interestingly, the twins' mother has also been accused of being a lookout, though she has not been charged.

Keyontyli tells how he got into the porn business:

After graduating from Edgewood Regional High School in Winslow Township in 2000, Keyontyli, then 19, said a recruiter approached him at a club in Philadelphia.

When the scout found out he had a twin, the two were flown to Atlanta to talk about a gig, he said.

But once they got there, they found out the "gig" was gay pornography, he said.

"We were laughing. We thought they were promising us modeling but they said that would come next," Keyontyli said. "That's how they pull in a lot of kids these days. We were already there and we thought 'How will we get home?' "

Xavier McDonald of BlackMen.net, the Internet site that posted some of their online videos, said that was unlikely.

"We go through sort of a checklist with guys because we're not going to buy a plane ticket and set up a shoot without everyone's understanding," McDonald said.

While Keyontyli is openly gay, he said his brother is straight.

But McDonald classified Taleon as bisexual, noting that he was surprised when he saw an Internet video of Taleon performing as the receptive partner during intercourse with another man.

"The next time we had conversations with him and shot him he sort of said to us he really didn't want his brother to know about that because he thought his brother would try to hook him up with guys," he said.

Both men had a hard time appearing in gay porn films together, and with other men, Keyontyli said.

"We laughed the whole time. They would give us stuff, like Viagra, to keep us hard," he said. "You'd get nervous so we'd drink a bit.

"I kind of felt, well, you didn't feel too good about yourself," he said.

He also believes that police don't have any "solid evidence" against him, and that they have a grudge against his brother due to previous escapes.

If what he says is true, it's kind of sad. Keyontyli got out of the porn business and got some legit modeling work. Apparently a criminal record is more of a deterrent to prospective models than porn.

While I've never watched it, cluttering up some dim corner of my storage is a copy of one of their videos.

Was it a porn video or surveillance camera footage?

Perhaps if I'd watched it I could tell you. Read for comprehension, SBB.
