About Ben Peck
Born in 1977 in New London, Connecticut, Benjamin Peck is a literature major, licensed attorney, blogger, writer and porn performer. He attended Columbia University, where he studied German and Russian literature, then obtained a law degree at Loyola University in Chicago. He found practicing law inconsistent with his moral and ethical values, however, and became a sex worker. He escorted extensively for several years beginning in 2010. He also began working as a porn performer that year, charting a new career course in his career. He lives in New York City , where he continues to care for his disabled partner of 13 years, as well as forge ahead with his career in progressive adult entertainment. Benjamin does not label himself straight, gay or bisexual, choosing instead to call himself "omnisexual," committed to sexuality in all its beautiful, life-affirming forms.
