Despite identifying as straight, Gaelic football star Cathal McCarron agreed to do gay porn in 2014.

It was an attempt to pay off his debts as he struggled with a chronic gambling addiction. Two days later, he had spent all the money at the bookmakers.

In his new autobiography, the now 28-year-old Tyrone GAA star writes how his addiction led him to appearing in a scene where he jerked off and had sex with a man for cash.

He said he had initially responded to an ad for male models but when he arrived at the offices in London, it was clear they were doing porn.

McCarron said the producers told him the video would only be available on a pay-per-view basis in US hotels and accepted the offer.

While they first offered £200 to be filmed urinating, he agreed to have sex with a guy as both the bottom and top for £3,000.

Why? He said by the age of 21 he had stolen almost £200,000 to feed his gambling habit, mostly from his father.

‘When the filming was over I felt physically sick, disgusted that I had allowed myself to sink into such an abyss of degradation and humiliation,’ he says in the book.

Cathal McCarronHis porn appearance was quickly outed in the press. Following this, he went to rehab back in Ireland. He then returned to Gaelic Football and was recently nominated for an All-Star in 2015.

And it turns out the experience hasn’t made him loathsome of gay men – almost completely the opposite.

‘Some people will continue to form the same opinion of you. A lot of them still think I’m gay,’ he said, Irish News reports.

‘Every day, I still get online approaches, or some form of social media connectivity, from the gay community. It’s embarrassing when some man asks to meet you, but I don’t look on that as a negative.

‘Some gay men seem to look upon me as a kind of gay icon. That’s how I was tagged on some LGBT community websites and discussion boards.

‘When the video went viral, some of those forums were laced with comments from gay men about how much they wanted to have sex with me.

‘The last thing I am is gay, but I’ll take those comments above vile, vitriolic, homophobic and personal abuse any day of the week.

‘I completely respect the lesbian and gay community, because I really appreciated their messages of support when so many others wanted to bury me.’

Cathal McCarron’s autobiography Out of Control is released on 20 October. Pre-order your copy here.
