2016 (International Mr. Leather)

It’s my 5 year porniversary… but the gifts are for you! (Video)

The preview from my very first film, Surveillance, shot 5 years ago today. Look how young I look!


It’s hard to believe, but exactly 5 years ago today I wrapped my very first porn shoot, Surveillance with Hunter Marx! And what a remarkable 5 years it’s been. I’ve met and worked with and some truly amazing people, and many of them have become like family to me — I’m looking at you, TitanMen crew! My porn career got me a sweet gig blogging for HuffPost. And of course, I met the love of my life through my work in the industry. And so many other great things have happened that are far too numerous to mention in a single blog post.

Through it all — day in and day out — you guys (and, to our great delight but initial surprise, you gals) have been right there with us. You’ve given me and Dirk encouragement and support, and — even though you might not know it — you picked us up when we were down… and asked nothing in return. Thank you. Dirk and I hope that along the way we’ve been able to pick a few of you up as well… or at least get you off!

And now for the good stuff! They say one is supposed to get wood (I’m not kidding) for a 5th anniversary present… but they also say that it’s better to give than to receive, so to celebrate my 5 year porniversary, here’s some new footage from my very first shoot! These are a couple of long-forgotten clips from the set of Surveillance. The first is behind-the-scenes video from the photo shoot we did for the DVD cover (remember DVDs?) and the promotional artwork for the film. Brian Mills also gives some fascinating insight into how much more involved the photo shoots were 25 years ago:

The second clip is an on-camera interview that my co-star Hunter Marx and I did immediately after wrapping our scene, exactly 5 years ago today:

I hope you enjoyed these little nuggets from the past. If you want to watch the completed version of the scene, you can do so here.

I can’t wait to see what the next five years will bring!

With much love and appreciation and respect always,
Jesse Jackman

    I googled “5th anniversary gift” and it seems that the folks at the Chicago Public Library have come up with a new list (must have a lot of time on their hands!):

    5th anniversary: silverware

    Perhaps the Titan crew will surprise you with a set of silverware—knives, forks, spoons, do you think? Having the real thing helps one to keep up appearances.

      Silver is the “modern” 5th anniversary gift. The “traditional” gift is wood. I think Jesse’s a traditional kind of guy, don’t you?

    What woman in her right mind doesn’t LOVE looking at HOT naked men. So what if your gay. I know that doesn’t bother me at all. It makes it even hotter watching M/M. Keep up the great work and Happy Porniversary.

    Happy Porniversary, Jesse! FIVE YEARS??? Doesn’t seem like it’s been that long! Well, you did porn a favor…or should I say, porn FANS…and it definitely did YOU a solid by bringing you and Dirk together! I am still loving these little BTS tidbits, and it was great of Brian Mills to stop and give us and his models some perspective on how far the WORK part of the industry has come, going from film and slides to digital (THANK GAWD!)

    BTW, is that Dato Foland at the end of the second clip? I don’t think I ever noticed until now that he was THAT hot!

      Thank you, my friend! What a crazy trip it’s been. 🙂

      I don’t thinkDato Foland has ever worked with Titan before. The stud in the clip is actually Dario Beck, who has a scene in Surveillance with Christopher Daniels, Trenton Ducati, and Spencer Reed. Not every day you see a TitanMen
      four-way!
