When going through Knox Peak’s Instagram you can’t help but notice this guy’s smile can light up a room. It was that infectious smile that compelled me to reach out to Knox and ask if he had time to sit down and talk to me about who he is and his passion for the outdoors.

Tell us about Knox Peake.

I am a lover of life! I believe you should make the most out of every day and always look on the bright side. Happiness is your choice and if you open your heart to positivity, you will attract it in return!

As for who I am? I am a fitness instructor and my passion is indoor cycling. I work at a YMCA which I love dearly. I use my position and popularity of my classes to spread my body positive message to as many people as possible.

What are you passionate about?

I am so passionate about Mother Nature and I am an avid hiker and outdoorsman. I love to hike and explore the great outdoors on most weekends and I have visited most of our country’s National Parks and forests. I love water activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, and skiing. I would say nature is one of the most important influences in my life, it’s where I find peace, beauty, and freedom. I’m super excited about my trip to Montana and Wyoming at the end of the month. I also love gardening.

In almost all your photos on Instagram you are outdoors and shirtless. My two favorite combos. What are your top 3 destinations that you have visited?

It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but I love to be shirtless!!! It brings me closer to nature. Sometimes humans forget that we are nature too, and when we’re free with our bodies (within reason, haha) it reminds us of our place on this beautiful planet!

My top 3 destinations!!! Wow! That is tough! I would say 3) The Redwoods National Forest in Northern California. The age and size of the trees are just incredible and breathtaking! 2) Zion National Park in Utah. The Narrows hike is one of a lifetime. It’s a 10–12 mile canyon hike almost entirely in the river. 1) The Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. I’ve visited these ancient mountains since I was a boy and they are truly special. That is where my love for nature began!

If you can change one thing in the world what would it be?

If I could change one thing in this world, it would probably be to eliminate plastics. They are destroying our oceans and sea creatures. It’s just devastating, but I’m hopeful humanity can end our plastic addiction.

Are you doing any modeling these days?

I’m not a model and I’m humbled you asked me that question. I have worked with some professional photographers and I am open to more of that kind of thing in the future. Since I began my little Instagram adventure, it has made me want to pursue some modeling. I love photography and I’m happy to share my pictures if they can promote my positive message.

What is next for Knox?

What’s next?! I’d like to keep doing what I’m doing… I want to check off every single National Park and Forest in the USA. I love sharing my message through Instagram and I’m eager to see where it takes me. I’ve been contacted by some reality nature-oriented TV shows, and underwear companies seem to like me, so who knows exactly what is next for me. One thing is for sure, I just want to keep brightening the lives of others!

Knox, thank you so much for taking time our of your outdoor adventures to talk with me. If you want to keep up with Knox’s outdoor adventures you can find him on Instagram @knoxpeake and keep an eye out for him to grace the cover of some magazine in the near future.

Joel Someone is living his gay porn fantasy

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.
