Someday My Prince Will Come
He was so romantic. I could not resist.
Some day my prince will come
some day we'll meet again
and away to his castle we'll go
to be happy forever I know
Some day when spring is here
we'll find our love anew
and the birds will sing
and wedding bells will ring
Some day when my dreams come true

I took videos of four white cisgender, able-bodied, young, male pornography actors, all of whom straight identifying, from their gay-for-pay "solo" scenes. These scenes start with an interview, where often it is the actor’s first time performing on-screen. I also took two clips from Walt Disney's 1937 animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In one scene, Snow White sings of Prince Charming. In another, the final scene of the film, Prince Charming arrives, kisses her, and breaks her spell.
