Disney star Dan Benson dishes on what he will and will not do on his OnlyFans account.
Dan Benson is known for portraying Zeke Beakerman on the Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place alongside Selena Gomez and Hayley Kiyoko. He played the best friend of David Henrie’s Justin Russo. His character was an adorably nerdy brainiac who loved robots and aliens. So when word got around that he started an OnlyFans account, it took the public by surprise.
Starting an OnlyFans
Benson is not afraid to show some skin online. The former Disney actor has been sharing explicit content on the OnlyFans app for a while now. From nude silhouettes to steamy photos in bondage, Benson has made a name for himself through his sex appeal. However, he has unveiled the boundary he refuses to cross in his newfound profession as a successful creator in the adult film industry.
“I won’t engage in on-camera sex with men just because it’s what everyone wants to see,” he told Page Six. Reflecting on his decision, he expressed, “I don’t want to look back in 10 years and realize that I made money and gained fame solely through compromising my comfort.”
The Power of Gay Twitter
Benson admits that his audience is made up of a large percentage of gay men. He even thanked “gay twitter” for helping to launch his profile. Because of this, the 35-year-old pledged online to donate to his fans’ favorite LGBTQIA+ charities.
Benson went on to tell Page Six that as a heterosexual man, he felt “very comfortable” producing content for gay men, occasionally catering to their specific desires.
“I genuinely understand their preferences and what attracts gay men,” he elaborated. Delving deeper, he addressed certain misconceptions surrounding sexuality, stating, “There’s an unjust perception that straight men should feel uneasy discussing their enjoyment of anal stimulation.”
He continued, “There’s an immense stigma suggesting that any association with deriving pleasure from such acts automatically defines one as gay, which is entirely false.”
How Benson Fell Into Adult Film
Benson also recounted how his foray into the adult film industry was unintentional, resulting from several instances of catfishing.
“It was only months later that I discovered my nude photos had been leaked online,” he said. “To my surprise, these images and videos were being sold on various websites.”
This discovery prompted Benson to reclaim control by establishing an OnlyFans account. “As I grew to understand and embrace my own sexuality, the thought of expressing it publicly no longer frightened me,” he shared.
