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.

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.
