Dead at 29 of a ruptured apendix. Unbelievably sad. Extremely talented, and eager to connect with his audience on Twitter and elsewhere.

  1. I looked up Masaki Koh after reading your post and found a video (We Are Out! Episode 2) featuring Masaki-san and his boyfriend Tien Tien discussing their relationship. They are very sweet together. . .

    1. It’s incredibly sad. He was a fresh face for both Japanese porn and for gay identity in Asia. Having a Chinese boyfriend, becoming a star in Thailand and other Asian countries, and communicating so directly with his audiences, Koh represented something new and hopeful. He will be missed by all of us.

  2. After reading the headlines on a “ADVOCATE” News Link, I began looking up Masaki,KOH. He looked to be a Beautiful, Happy, Amazingly Giving Person. I am so very sorry for his Partner, Most, But also his Family and Friends. Go Before Us and Prepare the Way Masaki, Koh!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Maybe Koh-sama had a high pain threshold, poor medical care, or it all happened too quickly. I think there should be a state funeral, televised memorial service, and perhaps the Emperor can get to work praying for Koh-sama and all of our mortal souls.

  3. My husband (I’m a straight woman with a straight guy husband) thinks I’m very weird for having become so interested in Masaki Koh, whom I’d only heard about through this blog. But the more I read and see of him, the more I’m moved by his story and images. I’m a terrible romantic, so maybe it’s sad for me to see the loss of half of such a beautiful couple.

    1. Nothing weird at all (in my opinion). Koh-sama was tremendously beautiful, talented at his work, and charming to audiences of all types. Plus, don’t lots of (straight and lesbian) women enjoy watching gay porn? Why not! Even in a gay couple, it’s not that both enjoy all the same things all the time!

  4. I just knew it few days ago and I got surprised . I’m even dreaming to see him coz I idolize him so much..I am really sad..really..still can’t believe it..but everything happens for a reason..from here in the philip pines my late condolences to his family and to te ten..god blezz

  5. How I wish I can have japanese gay friends..I really love to have few..hopefully.whenever I see them I find them so kind and interesting..if given the chance I want to stay in japan as well.hope to.find new japanese friends..thanks
