He had me at “conch shell”

Dirk and me at Folsom 2011

I was just updating my BigMuscle profile and was reminded of a story from when I met Dirk. (As an aside: I’ve been a member of BigMuscle.com since the very early days… to give you an idea, I’m profile #6531 out of nearly 154,000! Andy and Bill, who run the site, are fantastic guys and good friends. They’re friends of the company too, having collaborated with Titan on a film starring Jake Deckard.)

Anyway, I was looking at my profile and remembered that once, long ago, I’d created a “pal” link to Dirk’s profile, and tagged it with the comment “You had me at conch shell.” I read that again and smiled. You see, back when Dirk and I first met at Folsom in 2011, he dropped a couple of references in a single sentence that I’d never forget. We were in the middle of that fateful lunch, and it was only minutes before “the email” arrived. (Read the whole story here, if you haven’t already. It’s a good read.) We’d been discussing how to balance porn life with romantic life, and Dirk was making a point about how porn sex is very different from love. He suddenly realized that he’d been steering the conversation for a while, and promptly apologized: “Sorry, I didn’t mean to take the conch shell… or the red scrunchie!”

Seriously? A Lord of the Flies reference and a Heathers referencein the same sentence? Needless to say, this got my attention. “Who is this guy?” I thought. “I already know he’s really hot and sweet… but smart and well-rounded too?” And so began my fascination with a man who has never ceased to — if you’ll pardon the expression — amaze the pants off me. We had only just met when he dropped that line, and if things had gone any differently we may never have fallen in love… but at that moment I knew that we were going to be in each others’ lives, in some way or another, for a long time to come.

Here are some more pics of us from Folsom 2011. Can you tell that my interest was already piqued?

    Nothing makes me hornier that a beautiful brain that goes with a body to die for, so I can only imagine what you must’ve been thinking, once Dirk dropped those two ‘bombshells’. Or as someone once said to me of my own huzbear of 16-plus years, “If you get him, he’s a keeper!”
