Recently, redheaded spunk Blu Kennedy announced his retirement from performing in gay porn. As sad as we all were here at AEBN to hear this news, we can console ourselves with the knowledge that Blu left a great legacy: dozens of hot performances for all of us to enjoy for years to come, from top studios as diverse as Lucas Entertainment, Jake Cruise Media, and Rascal Video. The news of his departure has inspired us to revisit some of his finest moments.
Blu was born October 3, 1983 in Oklahoma and grew up in Kansas. Before getting into porn, he lived for a while in San Francisco but moved to New York City for his then-boyfriend’s job. At age 21, this freckled cutie emerged in the NYC gay porn scene as a firm-bodied twink with a thick dick and a desire to get back at the boyfriend for breaking his heart. We do love that fiery side of a ginger!
Not concerned with his motives for getting into porn, vengeful or otherwise, fans quickly fell for Blu Kennedy’s pale-skinned, twinky charms. He could go from shy and angelic (his more natural state, or so we hear) to aggressive and fiery as the scene required, and was fittingly able to switch roles when it came to sexual position as well. ShowGuys was one of the first studios to make use of Blu’s versatile talents, casting him in volumes 145, 154, 157, 158, and 184 of their Showguys series with such studs as Chris James, Adrian R, Dean Edwards, and Matt Hyland. Watching him top gorgeous Roman Heart in the orgy scene at the beginning of Getting It in the End from Jocks was another highlight of Blu’s career during the first couple of years. In 2006, he was nominated for Performer of the Year at the GayVN Awards.
Having left the business briefly in 2008, Blu returned the next year looking almost nothing like the skinny ginger twink fans had known! For evidence of this transformation, first see him do a threeway in Raw Fuck Club from Amateur Straight Guys and then watch him take on Michael Lucas himself in Michael Lucas’ Auditions 28: A Night With Wilfried. Blu had always had the muscle tone of a swimmer, but he’d bulked up and was in the best shape of his life. He bottomed for Trevor Knight in a cock-pulsing scene in Head Hunters Two, a fantastic white collar porno from Hot House Entertainment.
Even though we’re going to miss his versatility, his cute face, and his good body, we can’t deny that Blu has given us plenty of masturbation material and deserves a fond place in our memories.
