Peter Connor: “I’m a normal boy.”

I caught up with Peter Connor to talk about porn, underwear, and fantasies.

What led you to start exploring a career in porn?

It all started on Instagram — I was in a photo posted by friend and brother Jean Favre while we were training together in the gym.

Tim Kruger messaged Jean to ask who I was, and a few minutes later Tim contacted me.

I’d never considered porn before that, but that’s how Peter Connor was born.

Would you describe yourself as an exhibitionist?

No. I’m a normal boy, but I’m sufficiently extroverted and confident that I can perform when required.

But the performance is different from who I am as a real person — I keep things very separate.

What do you enjoy most about performing a live show at a club?

It’s the joy that you feel from the people who come to see the show — I enjoy their enjoyment.

Who are some of your gay porn heroes or inspirations?

Tim Kruger is someone who can make you feel at home when you’re on the set. He’s very easy-going.

Jonathan Miranda has a great positive energy, and he’s extremely creative in his live shows — plus he’s very handsome. I’ve worked with him in Berlin and Madrid, he always gives everything.

What’s your ultimate gay porn fantasy?

An orgy where I’m the centre of attention, surrounded by handsome boys who all want a taste of chocolate.

Can we talk underwear?

I like sexy but discreet underwear. I go for white underwear if possible, because I associate white with hygiene and purity.

I don’t like jockstraps or anything like that, although I’ll often wear them for work when I’m filming or performing live.

What are some of your goals and ambitions for the remainder of 2018?

To be better every day. It doesn’t matter what job you have or the money you earn, to be the best version of myself is the greatest fortune I could have.


With enough effort and dedication, everything else will take care of itself.

Giving a voice to gay Arab men

I caught up with author Samer Bo to talk about writing erotic gay fiction in Egypt.

What led you to start writing erotic gay fiction?

I was forgetting what was happening. I noticed that when someone asked me about what happened to me the previous week, I couldn’t remember the details.

I think forgetting was my defence-mechanism for all the pain and trouble.

So, I started by writing my diaries, which ended to be quite erotic sometimes. Then that moved to erotic fiction.

Where do you draw inspiration from for your stories?

Inspiration comes from my personal experiences and sometimes my friends’ experiences. Other times, I just meet a guy or watch a movie, and it inspires me to write a story.

Who are your target audience?

I write for myself before anyone else. I’d love all gay men to read and get aroused by my stories.

But I guess I do write for minorities — people who don’t usually get represented in media, porn, or erotic stories. I want people to see themselves represented in my novels.

What sort of feedback do you get from your readers?

I get a lot of positive feedback from people in the Middle East who finally find a voice speaking to them. Some see me as a role model — a type of Egyptian guy that they never see in the media.

Do your friends and family know that you write erotic gay fiction?

Only some close friends know. I’m not in touch with my family anyway. Samer is my real name, but I changed my last name to Bo.

Have you had any negative reactions to the gay erotic fiction that you write?

I only tell people about my writing if I know that they’re either gay or gay friendly. So I haven’t had negative reactions in that respect.

However, I have had multiple incidents of homophobia. I was arrested once.

Son of the President isn’t an erotic story, how did that story come to you?

That story is based on the real-life story of an older friend that I met a few years ago. I told him about my erotic stories, and he asked me to write an erotic story inspired by his experiences.

However, I felt that if I wrote it as erotica, it would take away from the essence of the story. So I left it as non-erotic story.


What do you hope that people feel when reading your stories?

First of all, aroused from my erotic stories. Plus, I want people to feel represented.

Gay Arabs are not represented in any kind of media. We’re being suppressed and discriminated against. A lot of gay men in the Middle East feel that being gay is wrong, and that homosexuality is a sin.

This is my small way to help those men feel better about themselves.

What are some of your goals and ambitions for the remainder of 2018?

More stories, maybe some non-erotic ones. I’m also helping a friend of mine to change his non-erotic short story into a play.
