that is alive and well.

 

Philipp Tanzer, probably best known to his fans as Logan McCree, made his name in fetish films and for winning Mr Leather in Germany in 2004.

Tattooed all over (we’re talking everything), the German-born bisexual performer won numerous porn awards in his career.

But he ditched it all to set up a hairdressing business in Durness, a tiny village of just 400 people in Scotland.

He says that while you might expect people in a place like that to be the most bigoted, he feels supported.

‘Everyone in Durness has heard about [my past],’ Tanzer said. ‘But I really try and help in the community as much as I can and people are very grateful.’

He was asked to join the retained firefighter crew to help out in the village. When asked whether he still does gay porn, Tanzer said it ‘didn’t feel right anymore’. He last did a film in 2015 but occasionally still does private videos on his website.

 

While a few locals have questioned whether he was right for the job, a £4,000-a-year role that involves working one day a week, Tanzer added: ‘If they have a problem with it, they can always come to me. I’m a friendly person.’

Fellow firefighter James joked: ‘I’m one of his work mates — but not in a film capacity obviously. We would all have preferred it if he was a female porn actress. But he is what he is.

‘We asked him because he’s a young fit bloke. We need young fit men or women. None of us have a problem with his past.

‘I haven’t seen any of his movies, but apparently he’s very good. He’s just Philipp. He’s a damn fine guy.’
