Flashback Friday: My first photo shoot with TitanMen! (NSFW)

As I go through the process of moving all of my videos to a new, hopefully more stable hosting platform, I just came across this NSFW gem from August 29, 2011, during the photo shoot for my very first film, Surveillance:

The guy taking the pictures, Brian Mills, used to be Titan’s lead director as well as principal photographer. He worked at Titan for 20 years, and I was proud to be the very last scene he directed for the studio (with Adam Russo in Down and Dirty). The man is a genius, and between him and Titan’s current lead director/photographer Jasun Mark, I’ve learned a ton about what it takes to make those photos you see look as good as they do!

Hope you enjoy the video, which also features Surveillance stars Hunter Marx, Trenton Ducati, Christopher Daniels, and Dario Beck! Here’s what the finished photos looked like… and you can also watch the free trailer for Surveillance here!

Pics from the Market Days live show!

Steamworks’ DJ Robbie Martin was kind enough to send me some pictures from the live show that Dirk and I performed at Steamworks Chicago on Sunday night! (Click on each pic to see a larger version.) And in case you missed the webcast, here’s a reenactment of what went down. Sorta. 🙂

Earlier in the day we played “Twisted Twister” at the Steamworks booth along with fellow Titan Men Hunter Marx, Christopher Daniels, and Ethan Anders. We had so much fun… and Steamworks raised over $3,000 for Chicago House, a community organization that provides housing and support to youth and families struggling with HIV and AIDS. What a great day! Dirk and I really love working with the Steamworks guys, and hope we get a chance to do it again in the near future!

Brian Mills has had enough of this shit

In this behind-the-scenes video from the filming of Incubus 2, TitanMen lead director Brian Mills (who assisted first-time director François Sagat) describes some of the problems we experienced while filming my scene with Christopher Daniels and the grapes in Palm Springs last fall. (Mobile users can watch the video here.) Thunder, lightning, sirens, lawnmowers, leaf blowers… it’s all there, along with a particularly agitating distraction when we were trying to film my cumshot. Considering all the problems, I find it pretty amazing that François, crack editor T.P. Deaux, and the rest of the Titan team were able to turn I2 into the huge hit it eventually became.

Watch the completed scene here.

Fluffer: Just another service I offer.

“Does Titan hire fluffers, and how can I become one?”

I get that question a lot. Unfortunately, there is no dedicated “fluffer” on set… at least not in the traditional sense. The term was originally used to refer to the person on set who would “clean up” a pornographic actor between takes (apply make-up, supply lube, wipe away sweat etc.) so that the actor wouldn’t need to change position… kind of like “fluffing the pillows” without rearranging the furniture. The job is now more commonly referred to as “production assistant,” but the urban legend of keeping the actor aroused persists to this day.

The truth is that we actors keep each other aroused… as Christopher Daniels and I are more than happy to demonstrate in the above behind-the-scenes video from the set of Incubus 2. Enjoy. 😉

You can watch Incubus 2, porn legend François Sagat’s directorial debut, in high-def right now when you join TitanMen for 80% off. This all-access pass includes unlimited streaming of the entire TitanMen online catalog with movies like Gorge, 110° in Tucson, Arcade on Route 9, Fallen Angel, and literally thousands more. But this offer ends any minute (really! I was told it ends on July 4!), so sign up now!

By the way, for those who are keeping track… the other day I promised that I’d post another “home video” of Dirk and me if just 5 people signed up during this sale. We’re at 4. Almost there!!

Fucking my way to the top

Bottoming for Christopher Daniels in "Incubus 2"

I’m versatile. Really. Just ask my boyfriend. So why have I bottomed in all of my Titan films so far?

First and foremost, because of you guys. I like to think one of the reasons Titan hired me on as an exclusive is that I enjoy both topping and bottoming. That said, there definitely seem to be a whole lot of you out there who like beefy, muscular, hairy guys who love to bottom. It appears that there’s quite a demand for ’em, and I’m only too happy to oblige! Also, for some reason I think a lot of people expect bigger guys like me to be exclusive tops… and as I mentioned in my interview for Naked Pictures of Your Dad, I never pass up the chance to challenge people’s expectations.

Another reason, quite simply, is that when you’re just breaking into the industry, it’s actually a little easier to start out as a bottom. In most cases, the work of a top is a bit more challenging; he has to concentrate on a lot of things at once, like listening to the director’s instructions, controlling the pace of the scene, making sure not to block the camera or the lights, using nice long strokes while fucking, keeping the bottom in a comfortable position, and — most importantly — giving you guys a great unobstructed view of the action.

Bottoming for Hunter Marx in "Surveillance"

In my first two scenes, I was really fortunate to be paired with with two amazing, experienced tops: Hunter Marx in Surveillance, and Christopher Daniels in Incubus 2. Working with them taught me a lot about how to top on a porn set. By the time I filmed my third scene with Roman Wright for Command Performance, I felt comfortable enough with the process to try topping on camera for the first time. The result was, in my opinion, a pretty fucking hot flip-fuck scene… but you can judge for yourself.

Topping Roman Wright in "Command Performance"

I have a few more projects in the works, and I’m happy to report that I’ve tested my topping skills again. I was thrilled with the results on-set, and I’m really excited to see the finished product. But just because I’ve begun to explore the world of the dominant muscular top doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned my bottom-based beginnings… on the contrary, every scene I’ve filmed so far, plus all those in the works, have me either bottoming or flipping. After all, it’s what you guys want! 🙂
