In some ways, Benjamin, Jason and Adrian are like many startup teams. They live together, they party together, they share sales, marketing and technical duties. But there’s something that sets them apart from your average posse of entrepreneurs: The three men are all in a relationship together.
The trio — or “throuple,” as they call it — run CockyBoys, one of the only gay porn studios in New York City, according to a profile of the small business in New York Magazine’s recent Sex Issue.
Benjamin, 25, is the company’s creative director. He joined the relationship — and the company — four years ago, New York noted. When Jason, 40, CockyBoys’ CEO, and Adrian, 32, met Benny, he was squatting in an abandoned building with no clear career besides a popular gay blog. They invited him into their 9-year relationship, hired him as a personal assistant, and watched as the enterprising 20-something taught himself to write Internet code.
