SAN FRANCISCO—Hot House Video has confirmed the passing of gay adult performer Josh Weston, who entered the industry in 2001, when he signed with Falcon.

”Adult Superstar Josh Weston succumbed to HIV-related complications on Sunday, December 16,” reported the Hot House company blog.  “He was 39 years old. Weston started his career in 2001 as a Falcon Exclusive, starring some of their biggest hits from the early 2000s. After leaving that contract went on to work with other studios including Hot House where he headlined our hits Trunks 3 and Communion. Always warm and friendly and ready to laugh, Josh was loved by many and will be missed by all.”

The Sword’s Zach added, “Weston began his career as a dancer at the Nob Hill Theatre in San Francisco, and after being discovered there by Chi Chi LaRue, he quickly became one of the decade’s most iconic performers.

“Weston’s later work with several bareback studios was seen by some as controversial, but his flawless physique and legendary performances are what, I think, will be remembered most.

“Weston unfortunately joins a long list of performers who’ve died this year, including Erik Rhodes, Adam Faust, Corbin Fisher’s Sean, Roman Ragazzi, and more.”
