BRETT MYCLES (1977 - 2007) : R.I.P.

Brett Mycles (real name Robert Christopher Sager) (December 2, 1977 - February 25, 2007), was a successful muscle and fitness model. He was a featured model for the International Male clothing catalog. As "Brett Mycles" he gained fame as an American male pornographic actor.

He starred in several pornographic movies and posed in gay porn magazines. He worked in both gay and straight pornography. In a 2005 interview, he said that he recently married his high school sweetheart, whom he first met when he was 19 and she was 17.

Born in Houston, Texas, he moved to Ohio and resided in the Los Angeles area. At 22, while in Ohio, he entered an Arnold Classic bodybuilding contest where he was spotted by photographer Irvin Gelb.

Sager was a "porn star," nude model, nude wrestler, fitness model and personal trainer. He also made regular appearances on a webcam site for paying fans.

He died in his sleep of heart failure on February 25, 2007. Weeks beforehand, family and friends report that he complained of irregular heart beats and said that his family had a history of heart problems.

His use, common among bodybuilders, of steroids and "fat-burner" supplements, which sharply increase heart rates, may have increased his risk of heart failure.
