Why did a Canadian rapper produce his own gay porn video?

The Housesitter
 
Montreal-based rapper Josh “Socalled” Dolgin (pictured, right) found an interesting way to celebrate turning 40: he filmed a gay porno.
 
“I don’t need porn the way some people seem to,” he told VICE. “I don’t jerk off to porn. [But] I do like to have porn playing at parties.”
 
And the porn he prefers has more of an art quality than some of today's releases. He prefers the work of people like Toby Ross from the 1970s.
 
Socalled“Toby always used natural lighting. The films felt real, and the men in them looked like they were actually having fun. They’re beautiful films.”
 
Last year, he met gay porn star River Wilson on Grindr. The guys hooked up and talked about creating a movie together. Dolgin decided to help create the movie, but wasn't prepared to strip down and appear in it.
 
The result: The Housesitter. It features Wilson and Valentin Braun, who plays Wilson’s love interest. 
 
“I wanted this to be different,” explained Dolgin. “I wanted to make an indie porn, in the spirit of Toby Ross. I don’t think of this as a mid-life crisis movie, I see it as a mid-life celebration. I love sex and I love great photography and film, so this is a combination of the two.”
 
Dolgin's YouTube channel describes the movie as "a sexy film that rocks the porn boat a little by being more tasteful, thinking, artsy-fartsy and human than your average naughty movie."
