Who? Irish athlete.
Greg Jacob is a hurler for Wexford in the Gaelic Athletic Association, which Wikipedia calls “an amateur Irish and international cultural and sporting organisation focused primarily on promoting Gaelic games, which include the traditional Irish sports of hurling, camogie, Gaelic football, handball and rounders.”
Starting in April, 2010, a scene from the XXX flick Tanya Tate’s Sex Tour Of Ireland airing on Television X showed Greg Jacob having sex with pornstar Tanya Tate.
The Daily Mail reported:
Locals in the sporting community have identified the man in the video as Mr Jacob. But when asked about the tape, he said: ‘It’s all rubbish, I don’t know why people are ringing me. I have no comment. I’m not talking to anyone.’ [...]
Yesterday, this newspaper also spoke with Mr Jacob’s younger brother Alan, who works in a sports shop in Enniscorthy. When he was told that the MoS would be linking his brother Greg to the sex video, he replied, ‘Oh that idiot’, but declined to comment any further.
Told that the video showed his brother in the film Tanya Tate’s Sex Tour Of Ireland, he later said: ‘Greg’s very upset about this. I’m not going to say anything else.’
An Irish newspaper article the same day quoted Greg Jacob readily admitting that he appeared in the XXX scene.
Speaking this weekend, the hurler said: “It’s all nonsense. You know how s**t goes around,” he said. “I don’t regret doing it.”
“It was just a bit of fun. It was a dare from the lads,” he said.
“I’m not ashamed of what I did, I just didn’t want the family to know,” he said.
“No one knows, only a few friends and that’s the way I want to keep it.”
The GAA player also expressed his concerns about any potential female admirers.
“Let’s put it this way — if I asked you out on a date would you go out with me if you know I had been in a porno? Irish girls in general, if you were to go talk to any girl in your local bar, in the countryside, [they wouldn't],” he said.
But he said his friends are giving him a pat on the back. “My friends are all saying ‘fair play’ — and I got a few pound,” he said.
Asked about the experience he said: “Yeah, I suppose it was great.”
