Royal ballet dancer is fired for appearing in gay porn film

Jeppe Hansen of Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet has been asked to leave the company after taking part in a gay porn film. He was looking for a change, he said: ‘I wanted to express myself in a different way, artistically in a different way than what I can do in the classical ballet form. And I also wanted to explore myself and my sexuality.’

Got bored with Giselle?

    no link to the film??

  2. Let’s hope it wasn’t a film version of The Nutcracker.

    • The Buttcracker.

      Jizz-elle.

      Spaffnis and Chloé.

      (You’re welcome)

      • Or if he was an opera singer: Blowandgrin; Wriggle-it-oh!; The Golden Cockring; The Screw on the Turn.

        • This could go on for a while: A Midsummer’s Wet Dream, Cinderfella, La Boyadère, Romeo and Jules (oh, ‘allo, Mr Horne), Swanning Lake, Knobilissima visione, The Prodigal Bum, Les bitches, Butrushka, Arsacus, Undone, Le Pas d’ass, Agon-y (an SM special), Buck Us and Ariane, Willy the Kid, Butt-ique fantasque and two easy targets, Gaité Parisienne and (wait for it) The Fairy’s Kiss. Then there’s the fact that (true, this) the full title of Giselle is Giselle ou les Wilis.

          • Theodore McGuiver says:

            What about Billy Butt?

          • Birdwhistle says:

            The Fairy Queen, The Nozzles of Figaro, Cosi fan Booty, Der Freakschütz, Le Comte Whory, William’s Tail, Der Liebesverbutt, Les Huge Nuts, Der Wildsheets, The F*cking Dutchman, A Masked Ball, La GioAnaconda, Les C*nts de Hoffmann, Madama Butt-and-Fly, MAsskarade, The Cunting Little Vixen, Hairy János, Oedipus Sex, TurnedOut, The Golden Cock-erel, The Mastersuckers from Nuremberg, Fullstaff, Salami, Jonny Spielt Arsch, Moses und Anus, Blueballs’ Castle, Doktor Fistus, Albert Whoring, Danton’s Rod, King Priapus, Porgy and Butts, The Bear, Death in Penis, A Night at the Chinese Orgy, Gay-Wain, Powder Her Arse, and yes, Billy(‘s) Butt.

            Who needs dancing? Pornopera could keep young Jeppe Hansen (aka Jett Black) in business for years!

        • Or Verdi’s African adventure, “Aids”.

  3. Cassandra Riis says:

    “Royal Ballet” is ambiguous as is Jeppe’s affiliation. He was not a member of the company, but a student. To have a meaningful discussion about the merits of the case, we should probably start from the facts. Ballet is having a tough enough time as it is.

  4. Link is at once NSFW and TMI:

    Hope he doesn’t get a dose of sylphides.

    I’m sure the patrons of the ballet, who pay quite a bit to see men in tights, have never imagined such a thing even in their wildest unspoken private fantasies.

    The comments here made my day. Jizzelle
    Hahah

  8. It’s interesting that the ballet says this happened because students and corps members aren’t allowed to perform in any outside ventures without permission. So it’s not so much because it was porn, although that probably limits the company’s willingness to be flexible on the rules. So his claim that porn is an art form and the ballet isn’t recognizing that seems to be quite beside the point.

    • Is “performing without permission” really a dismissable act? It seems a bit heavy-handed. Surely a letter of reprimand reminding him of the rules would have been enough?

  9. Joe Shaver says:

    It was stupid to fire him. They should have given him roles, advertised the fact ,and played to sold out houses.

  10. MARY SOILEX says:

    A disgrace!!!! How dare this young man defy the ethics of an institution!!! Who does he think he ist??

    • James Dean says:

      He is an artist!! An artists that need to express his feelings. I admire this gentleman for his openness and for his fearlessness. Maybe we could all learn something from him. Perhaps you may not enjoy his artistic film work, but he has my admiration for his beautiful body, young spirit and his love of sex – which he is not ashamed of expressing. What about your body, your spirit and your love of sex. I suppose this is all hidden in the closet and for the blind to see and admire.
