Michael Brandon: the Monster in jail
We don't usually promote stories about drug addicts, and how "tragic" their lives are, but in the case of adult entertainment superstar Michael Brandon, there is something to be learned: Brandon recently found himself in court (again) charged with selling
crystal, for which he will most likely spend several years in jail. Brandon has been battling the addiction for many years, and even achieved sobriety at several points in the saga, but he always fell back into using again. Life, even for a porn star, doesn't always have easy answers.
It should also be noted that crystal meth use is one of the main risk factors in HIV transmission—and it can also cause permanent brain damage.
Brandon, the "Jenna Jameson of gay porn," is a superstar in the adult entertainment field, for reasons involving certain "endowments" he possesses; but his notariety only highlights the depths to which he has fallen, as is detailed in the story. And like Michael's famous endowment, the article about him is long, so beware. But it's worth the read.
