from www.examiner.com – From 2002 to 2010, Jake Genesis wore a uniform, badge and gun as an Oakland cop. In his new job, he frequently wears nothing but his birthday suit.

Genesis recently signed a contract to be an exclusive actor for San Francisco-based Raging Stallion Studios, a major producer of gay porn flicks. The former San Francisco resident, whose real name is Jake Floyd, also is a blogger and marketer for the porn company.

Chris Ward, president of Raging Stallion, said Wednesday that hundreds of fans have expressed excitement about Genesis entering the company’s stable of stars.

“He has the look and attitude of a Raging Stallion man,” Ward told Examiner.com, “and we have a lot of great things in store for fans, who will definitely enjoy the scene pairings and projects we have lined up for him.”

So, how did Genesis evolve from keeping the peace in Oakland to being paid to have sex on camera with other guys?

While living in the Bay Area from 1999 to 2011 – as a theology student at the University of California, Berkeley, as an Oakland cop and as a student in paramedic school – Genesis was approached at least a dozen times to appear in gay porn movies. Given his professional goals and his desire to be in a monogamous relationship, Genesis declined all of the requests. After moving to Madrid last year, the Idaho native finally relented, accepting an offer to make his debut in porn.

“Although I was obviously aware that the globe is only as big as a computer screen with an Internet connection, living as an expat gave me a sense of freedom and anonymity that made saying ‘yes’ to porn exponentially easier,” Genesis said.

As a “social experiment,” Genesis agreed to do a few porn scenes “with the intent to get in and get out” of the business, he said. “What happened next is all over the Internet and more surprising to me than anyone else.”

His porn career took off almost immediately. In September, Genesis visited the U.S. for three months to film several porn movies; he had planned to return to Madrid afterward. Today, the hunky 32-year-old – dark-haired, muscled and tattooed – is living in Los Angeles after signing up with Raging Stallion.

“I am a very shy and introverted person,” Genesis said, “and I’ve enjoyed the challenge of having to make myself break out of that and be a porn star.”

Doing porn wasn’t in the cards when Genesis was fighting crime as a beat officer on the night shift in East Oakland. Nor was it part of the plan when he later worked as a patrol rifle officer, field training officer, patrol sergeant, acting patrol commander and internal affairs investigator.

For much of his time with the Oakland Police Department, Genesis was a closeted gay man. When he came out, Genesis wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms.

“The Oakland Police Department is an incredibly homophobic institution,” Genesis said. “Once I came out, I was brutally and viciously harassed. I received private and anonymous threats and public comments about me being a ‘fag’. … Being open about my homosexuality closed a lot of doors.”

Genesis said a handful of fellow officers did not shut the door on him.

“By and large, though, people were astonished and angry that a gay man had broken into the ranks of the department and did the job at least as well as, if not better, than they did,” Genesis said.

Genesis balks at the idea of merging his police past and his porn present. As a matter of fact, Genesis said he was uncomfortable playing opposite a porn actor who was wearing a police uniform (a common costume in gay porn) during a movie scene.

“I personally hope to never be forced to play a cop in porn because I have friends who gave their lives while wearing that uniform. I have too much respect for both the uniform and the job to use it in that way,” Genesis said.

Regarding his new career in gay porn, Genesis said he’s not looking beyond his one-year deal with Raging Stallion.

“Everyone in porn is on borrowed time. Everyone will age out of the industry or our fans will eventually grow weary of seeing us. That is why it is so important to stay humble and grounded and to have an exit plan,” Genesis said.

While being a gay porn star may seem glamorous to some, Genesis said the work often is “very hard.”

“Sometimes we will film six or eight hours for a 20-minute scene. It is both physically and mentally arduous,” Genesis said.

Plus, he said, being a porn actor makes dating complicated – if not downright impossible.

Another drawback: Lack of privacy. Everywhere Genesis goes in the gay world these days, fans recognize him. He always must be prepared for photos, autographs and friendly chit-chat with fans.

“In the gym recently,” he said, “someone asked me to sign the towel which he was still wearing.”
