What led you to start exploring a career in porn?

Porn is something I’d always considered doing. I enjoy sex, and I enjoy showing off, so the option to combine the two and earn some money really appealed to me.

People are sharing photos and videos of themselves naked or performing sexual acts all throughout the internet - porn stars just have the business acumen to be paid for it.

Would you describe yourself as an exhibitionist?

Totally - I love being observed, and I love to know that people appreciate my hard work and performance. At the same time, I find being naked so liberating - I’m a free-spirited lad, I’m naked 90 percent of the time, regardless of whether there’s an audience. I particularly like getting naked outdoors in nature - I take any opportunity I can to shed my clothing and reconnect.

You picked up Best Jock at the Prowler European Porn Awards - how did that feel?

It’s a wonderful feeling to receive any recognition for your work. It shows us that we’re appreciated and that we’re on the right path with how we work. It also enables us to feel more connected with the fans, as it’s them who made it possible for the win.

So for me, it works both ways - it makes me feel proud and helps to stroke my ego, but at the same time creates a humble feeling as you realise it really is the viewers who hold the power and decide who is relevant or not. I’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who voted for me and everyone who voted for my friends and colleagues.

Who are some of your porn heroes or inspirations?

To be honest, I’ve been lucky enough to meet most of my porn heroes, which has been unbelievable.

The guys in porn who I really look up to or aspire to be like are the guys who like to give something back to the community, and who drive forward-thinking and innovation. I really love my good friend Kayden Gray who has really helped to raise awareness for people who are living with HIV. I also appreciate guys like Dominic Ford, who has established a lucrative and successful business and business platform for other actors.

What’s your ultimate porn fantasy?

My ultimate porn fantasy would be a glossy, blockbuster-style parody movie. I absolutely love acting and always wanted to be an actor, so that would really be an enjoyable experience - especially with how outgoing porn actors can be. I mean, could you imagine how every day on set would be? Fine asses, great dicks, and constant laughter.

Otherwise, if it’s just straight up sex, then I want my favourite top, tied down, and willingly made to bottom by other guys, of my choosing, in tandem while I watched over him. Then, when everyone has finished, it would be my turn to make his ass mine!

Can we talk underwear?

I’m actually a commando kind of lad. Recently, I have started wearing jocks in the gym, because commando in sweats is just a bit too revealing. I have to admit, wearing a jock in the gym is so fucking sexual - especially when doing squats. Otherwise, I’m an old-school boxers guy - like CKs, or Tommy Hilfiger.

What are some of the projects that you’re currently working on?

I’m working on several projects, both sexual and not. I’ll be heading to Paris to film a feature porno, which will be a parody of a recent major movie - top secret stuff. I’m also soon starting nude workout and gym classes - they’ll begin in November. I want to show that nudity can be a very freeing and social thing, and that working out naked is a fantastic way to remove restriction and allow one another to also appreciate the male form.

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

I’d like to be as happy as I can be. I hope that by 2019 I’ve continued to form great bonds with fantastic and diverse people both in and out of the industry, and that I’ll continue to please the fans by working hard and creating amazing and sexual content. Also, I’d like to be able to move things with my mind.

Outdoors Cruising: the art behind the bushes

On a quest for anonymous and casual sex? ‘Cruising’ is not dead!

Outdoors cruising is not dead!

We have all heard stories of the ‘old days’, before mobile apps and even gay bars, when homosexuality was a taboo – and in many countries illegal – outdoors cruising was the only way for gay men to be able to find a sexual encounter.

Nowadays, homosexuality is no longer criminal in most of the western world and technology is here to stay. Socialising with our friends or acquaintances behind a screen and finding a sexual partner has never been easier. But some still prefer the rush and the forbidden pleasure of a casual outdoors hook up with a random stranger.

If you think that the rise of new technologies and that the closure of gay adult entertainment venues is killing cruising – think again.

From underground culture to art

Outdoors cruising has been source of inspiration for many artists, Touko Laaksonen (a.k.a. Tom of Finland) being one of the most recognisable names exploring the artistic potential of cruising.

Many young artists have proved that this element of the sexuality of gay men is alive, well and more popular than ever and their artwork exhibited in screens and galleries all over the world.

A brilliant example of that new generation of artists is Antonio da Silva – a young award-winning Portuguese experimental filmmaker that explores the hidden side of homoerotic culture in a voyeuristic and indie way.

On his official site he explains:

“I have always been fascinated by male sex and sexuality. I became increasingly frustrated with how moving image explored this and have begun to make it the subject of my films over the last three years. I do not consider myself a pornographer but a filmmaker who use my background to choreograph short films with explicit sex themes.”

Since 2011, when he launched his first short film “Mates” – an intimate view into the world of online hook ups – Antonio has been exploring many current themes of the gay culture such as fetish, voyeurism and, of course, outdoors cruising.

Each film is a mystic combination of sound, image and movement that captivates the viewer from the first second and has granted him a space in some of the most wanted film festivals all over the world.

From the ‘hidden camera’ documentary style of Bankers, the dance-based choreographic scenes of Dancers, to the futuristic – and almost stroboscopic – view into the world of online gay sex of Spunk, Antonio keeps experimenting and delighting his viewers with the most captivating homoerotic short films.

“Cruising in the Park” – a sensorial immersion into the cruising scene

On his most recent work – “Cruising in the Park” – Antonio teamed up with Fabio Lopes to take us on a journey into the world of outdoors cruising. Moving away from the mainstream staged pornographic cinematography, it combines low angle and close up shots with a real audio experience and narrative giving us a sensation of first-person experience.

And, if just like me, you are a massive fan of movie/series adaptation of dark themed comic books like Jessica Jones and Watchmen, you will fall in love with Rodrigo Penalosa’s deep voiced narrator’s commentary throughout the film.

Don’t believe me, then watch the trailer (NSFW) below:
