YouTube is a video sharing website owned by Google and is one of the most popular websites on the internet, being ranked second by the company Alexa Internet. It was the idea of three former PayPal employees who created the service in 2005 before it was bought by Google a year later for the value of $1.65 billion. It allows users to upload their own videos for others to view. Viewers can then comment, report, and rate videos while also having the option to subscribe to other users. The popularity of the website has become so big that it has attracted companies and corporations to invest in their own channels.
Orion started his channel in 2017, posting videos of himself working out, and showcasing his body, and sharing his life working as a cam model. Webcam models are video performers who stream the internet, including performing erotic acts online. They strip and do other acts in exchange for attention or money, often selling pre-recorded videos of their performances. Due to the nature of their work being at home, they can control the sexual content they show on their broadcasts. Camming is considered one of the biggest engines of the porn industry.
He started to gain a lot of attention for his controversial content, often creating videos of himself while in his underwear or topless. He then began talking about how he is gay, and of his experiences with men. He also bragged about the size of his penis, stating that he has one that is easily bigger than most men. He continued to post controversial content, often working with other male cam models while detailing sex stories. These videos have brought a lot of criticism, as most of the videos seem done only to attract attention, so that he would have enough to gain income on YouTube.
After repeated questions to Jake regarding his sexuality, in 2019 he decided to share a video on YouTube, stating that he was tired of faking the fact that he was gay, and was only doing so for his work. He called himself a liar, and that he is straight, despite sharing detailed stories of his experiences with men in past videos. Even with that video, he then went on a rant, telling his viewers how much he likes women.
Many people believe that he is bisexual after having confirmed in a 2017 video that he was curious about men. He had also drawn a lot of controversy for posting a video in which he did a rant about transsexuals, calling them deceivers and liars. The bigoted rant was eventually cut off and deleted from the website, because of the backlash from the Trans community. He then released a statement that angered others more, as it felt like he wasn’t issuing a genuine apology. The confusion continues as he also mentioned that he’s had experiences with men, but he would not appear in gay movies because he doesn’t want to take the chance with AIDS.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that Orion is in a relationship with a women, telling the story of how he recently met his girlfriend a few months after his rant about being straight. He frequents the gym often, as evident from his body, but recently had surgery to repair a Hernia, described as an abnormal exit of an organ or tissue which usually affects the groin.
