Justin Berry "pornstar"

Here's a heady (pun intended) topic.

Do most of you know of the controversy surrounding this individual who, at age 13, began webcamming for strangers who'd "pay him 50 bucks" to remove his shirt?? Then went on to (at age 15) fly on escort excursions to Las Vegas at one thousand dollars a pop.. then to have his own website in Mexico?

The now-19 year old was on Oprah Winfrey's show two weeks ago and I have very mixed feelings about how he was portrayed both by the always-questionable Ms. Winfrey and the vast hew and cry of the population at large:

Justin Berry is, of course, now a born-again Christian and keeping his dong in his pants.

I saw Oprah's show when Justin was featured, Stronzo, and was a bit taken aback with the frankness of the details of the events. I wonder if this wide-spread 'telling' might give more young people the idea of making some easy money. I understand your mixed feelings because it's good that more parents become aware of the on-line possibilities being offered their young children, but whether or not they are able to control it might be a different matter.

We were led to believe that JB is keeping his dong under wraps these days, but we'll never know this for sure. At least he no longer uses his website, which is a good thing. It scares me to think of all the contacts in his pass, though, who might not want to stay out of his life.

Hi RoysToy,

Glad to chat with someone who saw the show.

I have huge misgivings about Justin's culpability in that thing. Oprah Winfrey never once interrogated his mother. In fact the mother was only featured on a video tape. In any other situation Ms. Winfrey would have lambasted, for instance, a woman who stayed in an abusive relationship.

I also have a problem with Justin Berry opening a PayPal account to accept money and gifts for whacking his meat on cam. When I expressed to several of my friends that I thought at least most adolescent boys who want to beat their meat to an anonymous audience isn't all that big a deal - many jumped on the "he's only a kid bandwagon". Personally if I'd had a webcam at that age and had found a willing audience I'd have been joyfully whacking it to anyone willing to watch. From the circle jerks I was involved in growing up one thing is obvious: Adolescent boys like to show off their cocks.

I think Justin's entrepreneurial skills are well beyond his years. Indeed he only went "born again" when he was dragged out of Mexico by that reporter in NYC who took an 'interest' in Justin .

Additionally, I found Justin entirely devoid of feelings and almost arrogant in that interview. Who, in their right mind, would pay some kid fifty bucks to take off his shirt when ninety-nine percent of them will do it for nada??

Justin? I think you're stretching more than your meat. I think you're stretching the truth. My real sense is that Justin Berry is a media whore. He was one then and he's one now. Somehow the "victim" role doesn't really fit.

Beyond that if these kids want to whack off on cam why not let them? Surely Justin Berry took it waaaaaaaaay beyond the legitimate but one thing is obvious; whacking on cam you won't be getting a girl pregnant or have you picking up an STD.

I am going to look for this on YouTube. I heard about him but missed the show.

Found this Clip. Thanks to the NY times.

Will discuss once I watch it.

He's too young and twinky to even be taken seriously. He strikes me as a publicity whore the likes of Jonah Falcon (minus the huge cock).

Hey, Stronzo:

I agree with your summations, Buddy, and I'm glad to see details of the show brought to light. Justin's mother's being shown only on tape was so foreign to Oprah's usual methods of covering subjects caused me to wonder about the reasons.

I, too, was perplexed about his opening a PayPal account, but assumed that 13 year olds today are so computer savvy this might not be uncommon. (I had an occasion to open one for myself after being exposed to this show). Do his entrepreneurial skills lead you to think he had help along the way? Yes, sure the vast majority of adolescent boys are inclined to like showing as well as seeing their newly found ways for having fun and I can certainly relate to your confessions of enjoying showing when you were that age.

Isn't it interesting that the NYC reporter took such an interest in Justin, even being willing to travel to Mexico for the story? The way he first learned of this particular website wasn't approached on the show, and it leaves a lot to be wondered about.

I suppose there are many payments being made daily to get kids to remove clothing for internet showings and I can see that the fifty dollars to remove the shirt is just a step in reaching the final goal of getting naked and having access to the main subject at hand! The affluent guy hungry for sex wouldn't hesitate to let a few hundred dollars stand in his way of getting off.

Yeah, it's no question that JB got carried away with his activity and there will always be that possibility for other adolescents. You've pointed out some worse alternatives (impregnating and catching STDs), but I would think the before pc method of just solo whacking should suffice. Am I still living in the past?

Agred RT. That video taped interview with his mother (who- as it happens -is in the business of couselling abused children) was unprecedented in my experience with her show. I think it was to safeguard her from random pot shots from Oprah's audience.

RT? It was very clear to me from the start of the interview that Justin's a bright boy. Indeed his mother said she "never knew what was going on" since Justin was so proficient on his pc and when he scurried off to Las Vegas ostensibly to go to "computer conventions" she never once questioned him... HUH?? If you recall Justin only stopped his hometown-based porn enterprise (in an apartment only several blocks from his mother's home rented FOR HIM by one of his clients) once one of his schoolmates got hold of a video perfomance of his and he was "outed" at school.

In all honestly I was whacking my 9 year old boner with three of my male friends in my mom's barn nearly every week ... and indeed my first real sexual encounter was when I was 15 and the guy who "showed me the ropes" was 23. Does this constitute abuse? Not to me it doesn't. I see the guy still regularly as a friend and I can still get wood thinking about it today. Bbut by law it would.

Further, I cannot reconcile random attachments of chronological age to sexual maturity. To believe that magically at 18 someone is "sex ready" is absurd to me. I was busting a nut regularly at 12 and I would have willingly gone further than handjobs if I'd dared suggest it then. What confounds me about the tone of the Oprah show in the Justin Berry episode is that it seemed to promote further that "cry abuse" mentality. Oprah, in fact, "applauded [his] courage" for coming on her show to expose the pedophilia so rampant on the internet..

Ummm OPRAH?? Jason opened the PayPal account. He flew to Las Vegas "hoping it wasn't about sex" to claim his thousand dollars for his company. Come on dude.... did you think those men were interested in your life experience?? Justin's certainly intelligent but he's no Einstein. He's just a twink with a dink.

Exactly what I got out of it. That part was conveniently omitted.

I don't know. When I sign on to Yahoo I'll get, on occasion, the random individual pming me to see say "hey, wanna view my cam?" I've been known to frequent cam chat so I'm assuming I'm located there. I mean OUT OF NOWHERE will come a pm from someone I've never met. When I ask age and sex and I'm given the legally permissable age I'll take a look (only when it's male cuz I'm a big homo) and when I'm asked if I'm male or female and I say "male" 80% of the time these ostensibly heterosexual young dudes keep right on stroking. Is it hot? Yes. Do they care who's watching them? Nope. Do they ask me for money? Nope. Have any asked to meet me when they find I live in close proximity? Yes. Have I done so? Nope.

I'll tell ya .... all is not what it seems. Since I'm in a committed relationship I'd not meet up with any (though one dude I watched on his cam is a hot 22 year old guy in the same town I am). However, were he to ask me to give him a blow job and I was NOT involved (much as he claimed to be "mostly straight") I'd be hard-pressed to refuse it.

We've created this phenomenon known as the home computer and the technology allows indiscriminate use of a webcam. I think we'd better simply deal with it. But to suggest (as Justin and his reporter did) that all "Parents!! Go immediately and throw out all your kid's webcams!" is more than a bit naive it seems to me.

I didn't watch it, but read the transcript. You are so right about the media whore. I'm unsympathetic. Except if it's really true his father is a tool box.

I was mostly offended by the use of the phrase "was repetedly molested," in reference to the man who had flown him to Vegad. Sorry, I'm sure that there are infact moral, legal and ethical issues there, but if you let a man fly you to another city, don't call it molesting. It's called fucking.

Thanks Lex.

I'd read that article just after the Oprah show in question but was unable to locate it again. I've just reread it and it smacks - in large part - of yellow journalism to me.

I dunno but I feel the nasty oppressive weight of the religious right subliminally behind the message in that article. How anyone can come away from JB's interview with the not-so-divine Miss O thinking that boy isn't a wizard at manouvering his own destiny is beyond me.
