Markie Moore, Next Door Studios, Rocco FallonMarkie More

Just last week, gay adult performer Markie More officially retired, and now he’s already gone and joined “Fight The New Drug,” a Mormon-run group that opposes sexually explicit adult content.

In his retirement announcement issued via Twitter, More wrote:

According to Zachary Sire, editor of a gay adult video industry blog (link NSFW), More appeared in 131 scenes on Next Door Studios over the last six years. His retirement came five months after he accused Rocco Fallon, vice-president of production and cinematography at Next Door Studios, of making death threats.

In a recent tweet (below), More shared an image from “Fight the New Drug,” and followed up with other tweets which said:

“Fight the New Drug” considers adult content “a deadly drug that kills everything human and everything intimate in a relationship.” The group cites studies that allegedly link adult content to increased misogyny, depression, sexual dissatisfaction, low self-esteem and a lack of empathy for sexual assault victims.

While the group claims that it’s a non-religious and non-legislative non-profit, its rhetoric is influenced by the anti-adult content movement which has sought to declare adult videos as a “public health crisis” in state legislatures. Opponents say such legislative declarations simply pave the road for future efforts to prohibit adult content online.
