An unguarded moment with François Sagat

The above behind-the-scenes clip was filmed in September of 2011, when I was working under the direction of François Sagat for the filming of Incubus. Titan director Jasun Mark did an excellent job putting this video together. He compiled film from several cameras and created a continuous narrative of the filming process, using both production footage and behind-the-scenes material. It’s awesome!

I wasn’t even aware that this was being filmed, but I’m really glad it was, because it captured something pretty cool that I never thought would see the light of day. There’s a moment during all that wrestling around when — just for a second — François simply can’t contain his laughter. After a couple of seconds, though, he composes himself and returns to the task at hand. That’s a great example of his personality, right there: he’s always the consummate professional, but no matter what’s going on, he always has this great sense of humor lurking just beneath the surface. It’s really great to see it bubble over once in a while. I’m so thrilled that this moment was caught on film.

Besides the wrestling scene, Incubus also features Aymeric DeVille, Hunter Marx, Spencer Reed, Shay Michaels, Jimmy Durano, Trenton Ducati and Jessy Ares… and you can stream or download it now with your Titan membership.

I took this pic in 2009 on Burlington, VT’s annual Pride Cruise. Pretty cool, huh?

Happy Hump Day!

To celebrate hump day, here’s a video of Dirk and me doing what we love best. I wasn’t even close when I started filming it, but Dirk started pinching my dick tighter and tighter between his asscheeks and… well, you’ll see. (iPhone, iPad, and Android users can see the video by following this link.)

Also check out our 51 minute scene in Loud and Nasty, now available in streaming video (with a free preview).

One sleepless night

As my devastatingly sexy hubby and I close in on 9 months together, I’m starting to get a little nostalgic. I’ve already written about how the two of us met, but with Dirk 3,000 miles away right now (doing a photo shoot for Mr. S Leather) and me having a bit more free time than usual, I thought I’d take a moment to continue the story.

I have difficulty sleeping when I travel… or rather, when I’m about to travel. I get inordinately stressed out when I pack, focusing too much on unnecessary minutiae while overlooking major details (such as, oh, remembering to bring my wallet or passport). I stress about getting to the airport, which once left me so distracted that I actually locked my keys in my car at the Park-N-Ride lot on my way to San Francisco to film Command Performance. I stress even when there’s no reason to stress: if I have an afternoon or evening flight and I’m all ready to go, I can still barely focus on my work during the day. Needless to say, the anticipation of travel is not my friend. (Oddly, once I’m actually seated on the plane I’m perfectly fine.)

Gay Bowl XI in Houston, TX

Last October I participated in the national flag football championships in Houston (despite having a rather significant leg injury and having played a grand total of 2.5 flag football games in my entire life… but that’s another story), and right on cue, I couldn’t sleep the night before my flight. I had just met Dirk two weeks earlier at the Folsom Street Fair (read the full story here), but we’d been talking on the phone almost daily since then (he lives in Chicago and I’m in Boston). He’s a night owl, so he offered to keep me company telephonically while I packed. The conversation started at about 1 am and lasted for several hours… I remember we talked about our experiences in the porn industry, about our families and childhoods, and about the nature of relationships (sort of a continuation of our ongoing conversation that had started in SF). By 4:15 am, I’d finally finished packing and was exhausted. “Well, I think I’m ready to go,” I muttered sleepily. And then for some reason I blurted out, “Wanna join me?”

I didn’t expect him to say yes.

Rather than answering “Oh, I’d love to, but it’s so last minute…” or “That would be too expensive” or “Thanks, but I have plans,” Dirk responded with “Hmmmm… what an interesting idea!” He had an uncharacteristically free weekend with only one lunch date that he could postpone, and he’d just gotten paid for his work at Folsom so he had a little extra cash. I jumped online and found a great last-minute fare from Chicago to Houston. And the next thing you knew, we were together in Texas.

And it was electric.

Thank goodness he didn’t arrive until the very end of my very last game (he got to see me in a grand total of two plays) because I might have been too distracted to play. We went back to our hotel room… and we didn’t leave it for 24 hours. The sex, needless to say, was incendiary. It was unlike anything I’d ever experienced before. That man can hit some pretty amazing spots (I get hard just thinking about it!), and some of those sounds he made when I topped him… well, I’d never heard anything like it. But there was more to it than that. We were really bonding. In the space between our hot fuck sessions, we talked about love, art, music, politics, poetry, douching techniques… anything and everything. We were just so comfortable with each other. We cuddled on the couch watching Don Hertzfeldt shorts (“My spoon is too big!”) and episodes of QI. Finally, exhausted from a sleepless night, at 7 am we walked over to Le Peep restaurant on Westheimer Road, hand in hand, knowing we’d finally found each other.

It was far and away the strongest connection with another human being I’d ever felt. And my flag football teammates noticed. When it came time to take the team photo, we were supposed to meet at the hotel pool at 1:30 pm, but I didn’t get the message until 5 minutes beforehand (I’d missed the original messages because Dirk and I had been “busy” in our hotel room). Just before photo time, I got a text from one of my teammates:

We hastily pulled on our pants and ran to the pool, somewhat red-faced but happy.

Our last day in Houston was bittersweet. My flight back to Boston left about an hour before Dirk’s left for Chicago, so he was able to see me off at the gate (I can’t remember the last time anyone did that, what with FAA restrictions about who can and can’t pass security). We were pretty sad… but we both knew that this wasn’t goodbye. It was more of a “see you soon.” Although we officially consider the day we first met (September 22, 2011, during Folsom weekend) to be our anniversary, one could argue that it was that moment, standing in Terminal A of George Bush Intercontinental Airport, somehow knowing that our life together had only just begun.

Dirk and I say goodbye see you soon in Houston

Conquering my fears

I’ve always had three irrational fears: electrical current, hot wax, and balloons (don’t ask). As you can see in this behind-the-scenes clip, the Loud and Nasty scene that Dirk and I filmed went a long way to helping me conquer fear #1. I’m hoping my next Titan Rough film will somehow involve hot wax — like in my buddy Shay Michaels’ hot scene with Leo Forte in Submit — so I can address fear #2. Fear #3, though, is probably going to be with me for life… unless Titan decides to make a sequel to Funhouse.
