Biography

The cover of Blake's book, My Life in Porn

Bobby Blake grew up in Tennessee. He went to Los Angeles in the 1980s and worked as an erotic dancer. On the advice of a friend, he visited a gay sex club owned by porn actor Paul Hanson. Impressed with Blake's performance, Hanson recommended him to adult film producers who cast him in his first film, Ebony Knights.

Known for working alongside veterans and adult film performers such as Gene LaMar and J.C. Carter, Blake appeared in over 100 films[2] playing aggressive and dominant top roles. He retired from adult films in 2000 and became an ordained Christian minister.

Bobby Blake is well known for his final porn movie titled "Niggas' Revenge" in which he plays a condemner of white supremacists and aims to re-educate these wrong doers. Whilst filming this movie, two actors were concussed on set as a result of Bobby Blake's vigorous movements. Filming stopped as a result and the two men were brought round with proper hydration. Bobby is celebrated for his muscular frame and his intimidatingly commanding presence, which is what the two men said was a cause for their black outs along with their nervousness for performing under him.[3]

In 2002, Blake appeared at a safer sex workshop in St. Louis, Missouri where he spoke to other men who have sex with men about safer sex and risk reduction of HIV and STDs. He was falsely accused of stripping and having sex at the event. As a result the sponsored agency lost some of its federal funding. The accusation of stripping and sex was made by a disgruntled employee of the sponsored agency and never proven.

Blake now criticizes the adult film industry as corrupt and advises young people not to enter it. He also opposes same-sex marriage but favors other means for securing gay rights like civil unions.

In 2007, Blake appeared on the CD by rap artist Trudog titled Booty Ain't Got No Face.[4]

As of 2007, Blake is studying for a master's degree in criminal justice. He has written a book which tells about his youth and experiences in the adult film industry. Published by the Running Press of Philadelphia in 2008, it has the title, My Life in Porn. Blake depicts himself as the biblical "prodigal son" who "had to leave [his] church and the place of [his] birth and go out there in the far country."[5] However, he continues, "in all the years I was working in the adult entertainment business I never turned my back on God or the Bible teachings I had grown up with."[5] Blake emphasizes that he has no regrets about his lifestyle, interpreting it as part of God's plan for him: "Now that it's over I can accept that that journey was all part of God's plan for me.".[6]
