    Hey guys - I've lurked for a long time and have finally decided to start posting......so here goes. I've admired a mostly straight porn star named Jonathon Simms for a long time. I first saw him in a Shane's World video some years ago and then kept looking for anything he's done. He seems to only perform with a female porn star named Charlie, a big breasted beauty herself. Perhaps they're married, because she only seems to perform with him as well. I once caught him in a solo JO video performing under the name Dean Butch Bailey. Think it was called something like "Me, Myself, and Ira" and then also in another solo JO video that had "Size queens" in the title. Have also seen him perform under the name Dante. I know he's been mentioned on a few lists here - but with no video links. This guy is stunning - toned and cut to the max, with a huge dick. Check him out if you can find him! Anyone else familiar with this guy or know anything more about him?

    Jonathan Simms passed away following a brain aneurysm in March 2002, aged either 25 (according to his official bio) or more likely 27.

    He was married to Charlie (Charlene D. García) from November 2000 until his death, although they'd worked together in numerous movies previously.

    He was occasionally billed as "Charlie Boy" when co-starring with her after their marriage, and had also done (solo) 'gay for pay' stuff ("Undressed", as well as a lot of modeling for gay magazines such as Muscle Men Undressed and GYM Magazine) under the name "Jason Riemens".

    Did not know that Alex. That is so terribly sad for anyone to die at such a young age.

    The photo shoot on that 2003 cover took place in 2000, with a wealth of material featuring Jonathan Simms having been (re-)released posthumously, lest anyone wonders why his videography continues well into 2005.

    Alex, thanks for the information. Why do I feel so struck down by this news? It's strange how you can feel as if you know someone simply by seeing their pictures or watching them peform on film. Wow. I am saddened and shocked. Wonder how Charlie is faring? What a perfect specimen he was.

    I think a lot of people forget (or fail to take into account) what a strong mental and emotional connection we can make with those about whom we fantasize, or with whom we have frequent virtual contact through film, television, internet, etc.

    Charlie (b.1973, no matter what other sources online may claim!) went through a couple of years of doing girl-on-girl porn only, but has now returned to hardcore heterosexual couplings and regular appearances at conventions. Her mother is former Penthouse pet Kitana Steele, so in some ways, you might say that she has the industry 'in her blood'. Having said that, she hasn't updated the bio on her personal webpage since 2000, and her online shop is now defunct.

    Jet Set Productions included a short memorial to Jonathan at the opening of Jet Set Fraternity Gangbang, in which he appeared billed as Dante.

    Excellent point, Alex. I think we fail to associate intimacy with what we're watching, and then something like this happens and we're jolted by its impact.

    Have any recent titles that (hetero scenes) Charlie's been in or can point me to?

    Thanks again for your help with this, bother. Appreciate it much.

    I think he was Butch Dean Bailey in Monsters and Size Queens.
    (Saw it on the Disney Channel.)
    Very, very sexy guy ... extraordinary physique, down to the small and not-so-small details.
    The face was a bit odd. Very striking, and yet there's something a bit dangerous, a bit Robert Blake-ish there. Heightened the appeal.
    Very full of life, I thought, and it hurts to think he died in his mid-20s.
    But thank you, Scout. We always learn things from you we wouldn't otherwise know.:smile:

    I am surprised to read he was dead. I've seen his movies recently and assumed he was alive.

    Are you sure he's dead? There's also another 'dante' that died of a brain hemmorge. Here's a link with his picture and bio of movies. http://www.action-dvd.com/starpage.asp?userid=442BC3C5-9590-45B8-BA8A-33CA3C4164B3&castid=S1079 I'm sure your right because you knew about his marriage and a good deal about him. I just wanted to make sure we're talking about the same person.

    I love this group these topics are near and dear to my heart. I was thinking about jonathon simms today as a matter of fact.

    The information that Jonathan Simms is dead is widespread and consistently reported, both offline and online. However, after hunting around some more today, I also wouldn't now like to say for sure that he is dead. In fact, I'm considerably more inclined to say that he isn't, and that the assertion of his death may simply be a convenient story to cover the fact he wanted to leave the industry and his past in it behind.

    Some examples of fairly standard online sources (there are many many more, together with various published articles and entries in "celebrity necrology" books) which assert that he's deceased:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_(porn_actress)
    http://imdb.com/name/nm0200581/
    http://imdb.com/name/nm0153238/bio

    It's also a matter of record that the images of him which appeared in magazines in 2002 thru 2004 were from photoshoots that took place in 2000 and 2001:
    http://www.smutjunkies.com/profiles/s/i_stars/Simms_Jonathan/

    Likewise, his online website is long-since defunct, so that all of it that remains is this CACHED image. As noted above, Charlie's website has also been in a state of neglect since 2000. However, she seems never to have denied the death story in any Q&A session at conventions that she's attended.

    So far, it's pretty straightforward. However, it's at this juncture that the picture gets cloudy.


    Numerous reports into the death of blond gay porn star Dante whom you mentioned indeed conflate him with Jonathan Simms:
    example of this.

    It's hard to believe that they both died of the same cause at the same time.

    However, there is clear evidence that Jonathan Simms had been wanting out of the industry just prior to this, as per the content of this email he sent to the owner of the Yahoo group dedicated to him, on 5th February 2002:


    On the basis of this, I am inclined to believe that one of three things happened: (i) he died the next month, coincidentally of the same cause as the other Dante - this, of course, is highly improbable; (ii) he had already left the industry and never bothered to correct the misinfomation, of which he was unaware; or (iii) he specifically had no interest in correcting the information about the other "Dante" and deliberately allowed the misinformation about his death to be spread and published to help aid his permanent departure from the industry. His real name has never been published, which would help in the ease of this.

    And it all seemed so straightforward yesterday.

    Why did two different pornstars have the same name? :confused:

    For the same reason that Chris Evans is both a dark-haired Hollywood hottie and a ginger-haired British TV and radio presenter; and for the same reason that Jeff Stryker is both a porn legend and a pre-eminent AIDS researcher. :rolleyes:

    Ultimately, it's only the billing "Dante" that both shared... and those one-name epithets are repeated endlessly throughout the industry.. there have been so many female porn stars using the billing "Zsa Zsa" or "Mercedes" and so many male porn stars called simply "Atlas" or "Vlad" over the years that one almost loses count. "Dante" is merely another example of this.

    I have sent out a few emails to people in the know, btw, to see whether they might have any more definitive insights into the strange case of "Jonathan Simms". So we shall see if anything more is forthcoming.

    Johnathan is kind of naughty if he is still alive and faking his own death by using someone else's death as a cover eh? It's kindof like a soap opera plot!

    It remains a mystery right now, for sure... I just corresponded with someone who spoke (today) to a highly knowledgeable (and still active) figure in the adult entertainment industry in Southern California, and according to the latter:
