Let’s talk about specs, baby!

I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 9 years old (see photographic evidence at right, which I’m surprised I never burned). In fact, I was one of the first people in my elementary school class to need them. I had this awful pair of brown plastic things that were way too big for my face, and also a pair of those huge plastic sports goggles like Kareem Adbul-Jabbar used to wear (except I also wore a rainbow-colored elastic band to keep them in place, leaving no doubt as to my sexuality, not to mention my lack of taste). This trend of ugly eyewear continued through 10th grade when I finally got contacts… but I still wore my glasses most of the time. And I still do. These days, I only wear my contacts for sports, the gym, (sometimes) when I go out, and for shooting porn… but that last part’s about to change.

The response to my most recent scene (with Mack Manus in Fast Friends — pics below) has been overwhelming… and most of you have said the same thing: “I LOVE that you wore your glasses in that scene! You don’t see enough of that in porn!” Well, I hear you… and Titan hears you too. Based entirely on your feedback, we’ve decided to work my glasses into a future Titan scene (probably the one I’m filming next week). I can’t wait to see how it turns out. One thing’s for certain, though… it’s sure to be a “spectacle.” 😎

Also, you gotta love a studio that listens to its fans. Yet another reason I love working with those guys!

    I still haven’t seen the WHOLE scene yet (if you get my drift), but I’m sure as hell not surprised by the reaction to the specs, Jesse…You look like the fantasy English teacher I always wanted to review “LLLOOOOONNGGGG” passages with from Classic Lit…and I can tell I’m not alone! (LOL)

    Thanks Jesse and THANKS TitanMen for listening to Jesse and your fans. I started wearing eyeglasses in my 40s. and was always embarrassed when I went out to clubs….but now that eyeglasses have become a fashion statement I simply don’t care what others think. I always thought that in porn it was unusual not to see any models with eyeglasses. Bravo to Jesse for starting a great trend and TitanMen for being a leader!

    I loved you in specs, but I thought it was weird that you would be attracted to a homeless guy digging through the garbage with dirty fingernails. Even if it was Mack Manus. And it looked like you were eating his ass in the movie before he got cleaned up in the shower. One of the stranger and less appealing porn scenarios I have seen. Just sayin…

    Saw you at Folsom with Dirk. You guys looked hot!

      Thanks Mark! I had a great time at Folsom… already looking forward to next year!

      As for the scenario in Fast Friends… well, I gotta say I agree with you… it was a little strange. We performers (well, with the exception of certain superstars like François Sagat, who’s definitely earned it) don’t have any creative control over scenes. Typically, the only instruction we get is to bring “typical butch wear” (boots, jeans, an unbranded t-shirt or tank top, unbranded underwear/jockstrap); we find out the plot when we arrive on set. When I heard what we were doing for Fast Friends, I thought it was a little weird too. My understanding is that Mack Manus — who has been directing films at Mack Studio for almost 20 years (you can watch several of his movies here) — had some creative input on this one. I guess he wanted to do something that no one had ever done before. If it were up to me, the scene would have been a little “darker”… I would have treated Mack disrespectfully at first, talking down to him and pissing on him, but then he would have overpowered me, turning the tables and pissing all over me before slapping me around and fucking me… y’know, to put me in my place. I think that would have made a pretty cool statement that everyone deserves respect… even the homeless drifter you see digging in the dumpster behind your office. Oh well, can’t have everything I guess!

      Maybe one day when I’m an international superstar I can make the sequel. I think I’ll call it Serves You Right. 🙂

        You guys had great chemistry, it’s just that this “scenario” was not a turn on for me. I couldn’t help thinking about what a real homeless man’s ass would taste like after a few days without a shower, and it made me cringe! I think it would have worked if they showed you getting Mack all cleaned up, and THEN you went into the rimming.

    Dear Jesse,

    would you be so kind to let me know the brand of the two pairs of glasses you are wearing in the recent pictures above?

    Thank you so much!
    Regards from Italy,

    Riccardo

    Ooops, sorry, I just realised that it is the model you are wearing in your film; could I have please also the model you are wearing in your portrait at the top of this pace, just close to the picture where you were a child?

    Something tells me you are a bit older than the PR/Marketing team says. With all these behind the scenes, growing up pics, I think you are a little older than you admit. 😀

    39? I think not. People half your age aspire to look as good. You are impressively fit, and offer fitness inspiration for people trying to achieve. Much props.

    I guess I don’t know why the studios have to make so much shit up. At least they aren’t saying you are straight.

      Haha, lazyguy… that’s awesome. Couple things: 1) Let me assure you that I do most of my own PR (except for official Titan descriptions associated with scene releases); I write my own blog posts and have complete creative control over this blog (as well as Facebook and Twitter), so anything you see here is coming directly from me. And 2) Let me refer you over to this Facebook post, which 2a) shows proof of my age, and 2b) is currently prompting a rather vibrant discussion about age and the gay community. The takeaway message in that thread is that you’re only as old as you feel.

      That said… as of this writing, I am 39 years, 9 months, 21 days, 10 hours, and 56 minutes old, having been born on July 3, 1973 at 12:26 am. Really!
