Interview: A little something for you to GRAB…

I recently sat down with GRAB Magazine in Chicago for a interview that’ll be published on May 20th — just in time for IML and the Grabbys — but with their permission I’m giving you a sneak peek at a few of the questions now. For the entire interview, keep an eye out for the May 20th edition of GRAB! The weekly magazine is available in printed form in the Chicago area and online at grabchicago.com. And speaking of the Grabbys, please don’t forget to vote for my film Dick Danger to win the Fan Favorite award!


GRAB: Who was the first person you had sex with when a camera was involved?

Jesse: Several years ago I hooked up with a guy from out of town who asked me if he could film us while we were fucking. The guy was hot and kind of mysterious, and I was really turned on by the idea, so I went along with it. It was really fun, kind of like being an exhibitionist without anyone watching. I never saw the guy again, and I have no idea what happened to the footage… maybe it’ll show up online someday, who knows.

GRAB: First day on a set filming your very first sex scene… what was it like?

Jesse: I loved it. My scene partner was Hunter Marx — a very sexy Titan exclusive whom I’d coincidentally met (and hooked up with) eariler that year — so I knew we had great chemistry. But the best part was when director Brian Mills, on first seeing my hard cock, described me as having a “dick made for cocksucking.” See, the shape of my cock had been a major source of internalized embarrassment for me (when it’s hard it has a dramatic downward bend, a condition called Peyronie’s disease). I used to be very nervous that anyone seeing it for the first time would get really freaked out, or even laugh at me. With experience, though, I started to learn that there’s a lot of unique things I can do with it, and some guys find it really hot. But when Brian said what he did in such a perfectly matter-of-fact yet complimentary manner, perhaps for the first time in my life my penis felt like an asset instead of a liability. And it felt pretty amazing to know that I could be successful in the industry, even if I’m shaped like a boomerang.

GRAB: What did your friends say when you first started doing porn?

Jesse: Almost everyone was really supportive. They saw how excited I was about it, and thought it was a great move for me, one that would boost my self-confidence. The only exceptions were two exes of mine. We’re still quite close, and both of them showed concern that I’d be swept up by the industry… that it would somehow change me. I’ve managed to keep a pretty level head, though, and both of them have since realized that it was a healthy and positive decision.

GRAB: Are you a boxer or brief kind of guy?

Jesse: Briefs. (Specifically, Nasty Pig briefs.) Makes things easier. If I wore boxers, I’d probably be hard all the time from all that flopping around. (Doesn’t take much!) And when I’m feeling naughty… a jockstrap, of course!

    You’re a better man if you can avoid getting “swept up” by pornstardom. One of my best friends was Scott Plaisance (who you can see here http://www.alsgaypornstars.com/luke-bender.html) who was absolutely the sweetest nicest (cutest) guy in L.A., who overcame a tough childhood to become an accomplished pastry chef (we’re talking L’Orangerie, and the Beverly Hills Hotel). Then suddenly one day I discovered a porn vid he’d done, and he admitted not only that but that he’d gotten into escorting. Alas, then got hiv, then, SFU. Unfortunately, the “fast lane” of pornstar glory is just a little too swift for some of us.

      I’ve found that people generally take one of two paths when they enter the industry. Either they work a lot right out of the gate and (typically) burn out pretty fast, or take things more slowly (picking and choosing projects, and not filming too frequently). I’ve found that those who follow the latter path tend the have a longer career than those who choose the former, but it’s actually a rather rare occurrence for people to get “swept up” in either case. It sounds like your friend hit a horrendous streak of luck, and it’s awful. Examples like his are often cited by those who seek to stigmatize and vilify the industry, but the fact is that the vast majority of us aren’t nearly (and tragically) as unfortunate as Scott.

          Hey Jesse. I have a lot to thank you for. I watched your Home videos a few times last year and I managed to grab a few pointers from it. I finally got myself into a relationship at the beginning of the year and the sex was HOT. We would spend hours kissing, hugging, touching and caressing each other’s body before I go down on my partner. He has been enjoying the moments we had together. We’ve just had sex three times so far but they were intense and worthwhile sessions. Thank you, Jesse.
