Article type: main feature
Author: Chris Pomiecko
Summary: Profile of 25-year-old porn star Jake Corbin, from Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
First sentence(s): In this repressive age, it is refreshing to see someone who enjoys and celebrates his sexuality as much as Jake Corbin. Corbin, 25, is an up-and-coming porn star, having performed in Falcon Studio’s “Cruisin’: Men on the Make”, and four films for Catalina, including “Screen Test #2” and the recently released “Runaways”. A true Renaissance stud, he also strips, models, and does jerk-off shows. Jake is 25 years old. Born and raised in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, in an Italian Catholic family, he was a gymnast and a dancer in high school, performing modern dance and adagio ballet with the Rhode Island Dance Company when he was 17.
