Jonathan De Falco (born 8 October 1984) is a retired Belgian footballer who is performing as a pornographic film actor under the stage name Stany Falcone.

Football career[edit]

De Falco started his career with Brussels, before moving to Belgian Third Division team OH Leuven in 2004. With OH Leuven, wingback De Falco promoted to the Belgian Second Division, where he played one more successful season in 2005-06, before losing his place in the starting lineup to Denis Odoi during the 2006-07 season. Following that season, he was released and moved on a free transfer to Deinze, playing in the same division.[1]

He played two seasons for Deinze, which ended when Deinze relegated to the Third Division in 2009 and De Falco moved to Sottegem who were at that time also playing in the Third Division. During the 2009-10 season, Sottegem relegated to the Belgian Promotion. With KRC Mechelen signing De Falco, he was however able to remain in the Third Division, playing for one more season before quitting football all together in 2011 at 26 years of age. The decision to quit football coincided with De Falco's outing as a gay person.[2]

Pornographic acting career[edit]

Looking for an alternative income, De Falco became a go-go dancer in nightclubs. Because of his muscled body as an athlete, he quickly became asked to perform outside Belgium in countries such as Germany, Italy and France. Eventually, he became a porn actor in gay porn movies under the stage name Stany Falcone. He stated that he had always found it difficult to hide his sexual orientation as a footballer, and that his coming out had been a huge relief for him.[2] In 2011, Falcone won the Hustlaball award for best newcomer in the gay porn video industry.[3]
