I caught up with Joel Someone to talk about porn, sex, and underwear.

What led you to start exploring a career in porn?

It was my dream to shoot with Treasure Island Media — something about the fearlessness of their exploits inspired me at a young age. Gay sex meant fear to me, as long as I could remember.

The longer I waited to seek out my sexual identity, people were pushing me away from my passions to things that were more stable. I was attempting to live a hetero-normative life, against my own inner desires.

Honestly, porn saved my life. I wasn’t happy with my direction and career, I love porn — it was a natural transition.

Would you describe yourself as an exhibitionist?

The act of creating porn is exhibition, so I would say — Yes, absolutely. In my own personal life, I enjoy sexuality that’s honest and playful. It’s hard for me to put titles on what I find to be exhibitionism.

I’m more an exhibitionist with my speech — I love talking explicitly with people who are truthful about their desires.

Who are some of your porn heroes or inspirations?

  • Rocco Steele was someone I admired from a very young age. His appearance inspired me to start working on my fitness.
  • Ron Jeremy taught me that you can be the nicest, kindest, most professional man, and you can build a career out of your great interpersonal skills. Having a large penis obviously helps.
  • Cutler X — because he’s a sweet and lovely person, but can still fuck like a demon. He was never corrupted by a persona.
  • Armond Rizzo was the first time I was deeply attracted to someone who was very boyish — up until that moment I chased ‘daddy’ type guys. He made me want to become more of a dom-dad.
  • Buck Angel altered my perception of what masculinity was. Seeing him made me search deep for what my inner gender was, which made me appreciate the masculinity of bottoming or being a vessel for another man.
  • Marco Napoli is the man I’m seeing, and he really is inspiring me. To see the dedication of leaving the past behind and starting fresh. He’s on this journey with me, and it’s nice to have someone to share this roller-coaster with.

What’s your ultimate porn fantasy?

My greatest fantasy is having sex with twins. During different parts of my life, this fantasy kept reoccurring. Just recently, I was able to fulfil my fantasy with the Morgan brothers. I was really aroused by the silent connection the two had with one another while they were being brutalised by 17 men — the symmetry of their bodies as each boy was placed in a pose and then fucked.

They were very quiet during this event, you could see the concentration on their faces. I thought it would be odd to see two brothers being fucked at the same time, but after the experience I was amazed to see the very cool close bond they had with each other.

Can we talk underwear?

I love bikini-cut with a pouch, or jockstraps — always in black. I love anything that cups my balls and lifts my cock up.

At the gym, I usually have gym shorts with a lining already sewn in.

On other men I like to see fresh clean underwear. Mine occasionally are musky from my balls. I like having a boy telling me that mine need to be changed.

What are some of your goals and objectives for the months ahead?

I’ve really enjoyed the partnerships I’ve made with several studios. I’m happy to have a good relationship with them and to be trusted to work with talented performers. I want to develop more partnerships with studios and performers.

I enjoy working inside and outside the porn industry. I love acting and creating — this platform has offered me the ability to do both. My favourite activity is discovering and working with talent on Instagram.

Beach Boys in the Buff

I caught up with artist Marc DeBauch to look at his series of work titled Beach Boys.

When did you discover and start to explore your passion for art?

I started drawing and painting when I was three years old. Before I was five, I remember creating a crayon drawing of the Sinking of the Titanic on the rough plaster of the living-room wall of my parents’ house. It was impossible to remove — my parents weren’t happy with me, but after that they provided me with enough art materials to pursue my creative interests without destroying their home.

When did you start specialising in painting naked men and creating erotic art?

It was 36 years ago when I started painting male nudes and selling them in a local gay book store. Then, in 1995, I entered two paintings in the Tom of Finland Foundation’s Emerging Erotic Artists Contest. I was won first place, which opened the door for my art career, as I was immediately approached by galleries and magazines that wanted to feature my art.

This gave me the confidence and notoriety to exhibit and sell my work at erotic art fairs and gay events. At that time, the internet was just emerging, so my friend Andrew created a website for me, which was a fantastic tool to get my art out to people around the world.

You’ve written that Tom of Finland is one of the major influences on your work — when did you first encounter the work of Tom of Finland?

I remember seeing Tom of Finland’s art in a porno magazine my friend had in high school. I was just amazed at the sexual tension, outrageous anatomy, and attention to detail in Tom’s art.

This was back in the early 1970s, so gay porn was just emerging legally in magazines and films. At the time, I wasn’t talented enough to draw the human figure accurately. But, I was fascinated enough to want to try. My sister’s boyfriend was a photographer, and he gave me his dark room equipment — back then you actually had to develop film, as there were no digital cameras.

I talked a friend into posing naked for me while jacking off, and I developed the film and made some prints. I was 14 years old, photographing another 14-year-old boy. It was very exciting creating my own porn! Unfortunately, my dad — being supportive of my art — wanted to see the photos, and of course I couldn’t show him. Not only did he not approve of gays, he didn’t want his son to be gay. He would have probably hit me if he knew I was a homosexual creating gay porn! So, I destroyed the photos almost in front of him, while saying — “The photos didn’t turn out and I would show him better work at another time.”

I was scared and freaked out. I knew I was self-censoring. But I also realised that if I was going to create erotic art that I would have to do it in secret. When Tom of Finland began drawing naked men, he also had to make his art in secret. I think most erotic artists learn to be very careful about choosing the right audience to exhibit their work to.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

My inspiration comes from people I know. I’ve been fortunate to see and meet many beautiful men in my life. Capturing their beauty and illustrating them in a unique way, is my goal.

What’s your creative process?

My creative process is different every time I paint. Sometimes an idea for a painting just pops in my head and I try to find model to pose for a photo to match my vision — that’s often the easiest route.

I rarely work from a live model. My paintings take so long to create — I often work all night on a painting — so, finding a model to sit for that long of a period and whenever I want them, is impossible. I use the photos of my models as reference.

Often, I look through hundreds of images and piece things together in a collage. It’s more like a jigsaw puzzle — lots of pieces missing, and my mind fills in those missing pieces with an arm from this model, the chest from another, the dick from another, the face from another, and so on, until I have the entire figure. But then I have to decide how the light and setting will pull all of those puzzle pieces together.

I have dozens of photos that are my references for every detail of plants, animals, rocks, furnishings. I sort through a constant mess of photos — gradually eliminating those references as my brain digests the information and my brush puts it on the canvas or paper.

The paintings that form the Beach Boys series are beautiful — what are some of the challenges in creating beach scenes like this?

Trying to find a balance between the setting and the model is always a challenge. I don’t want the model to overpower the beach, or the beach to feel more important than the model. I want my paintings to have a natural feeling, like you could be at the beach with my models.

Who are the men featured in the paintings of the Beach Boys series?

The men in my Beach Boy series are mostly friends that have modelled for me. Sometimes I find a photograph of a model that someone else has taken, that inspires me to use it as a reference pose to work from, then I find one of the photos of a beach that I’ve visited and I try to recreate a similar pose in a drawing that will eventually become a painting.

What do you hope that people feel when they look at your work?

I don’t want to just give the viewer of my art an erection, I want them to feel like they’re part of the painting, that they want to invite the men in my paintings into their homes, their beds, their dungeon, their car, their locker room, or the bushes for a hot fuck, butt licking, cock sucking, ass spanking good time.

I hope to excite the viewer visually, emotionally as well as spiritually. It’s my goal as an artist and sexually active gay man to paint erotica that continually challenges the views of people who oppose sexual freedom. If my paintings assist the viewer in discovering where they are in the spectrum of human sexuality, then my aim is reaching its target.
