Erik Rhodes (born James Elliott Naughtin) (February 8, 1982 – June 14, 2012) was an American actor who starred in gay pornographic movies. He was an exclusive for Falcon Studios, and was versatile in his public as well as in his private sex life.

Rhodes was an openly gay man,[5] who was the second porn star to perform in the top role with noted top-man Matthew Rush as the bottom in the film Heaven to Hell. He also topped longtime top-man Jason Adonis in his first onscreen role as bottom in the film The Farmer's Son directed by Chris Steele[6]

Rhodes made his struggles with drugs and depression public for years. He was a prolific blogger and frequently wrote of his heavy usage of both club drugs and bodybuilding steroids.  He died in his sleep from a heart attack on June 14, 2012. [7] He was also HIV positive. [8]
