On showering, shaving, Christopher Daniels… and grapes.


Check out this behind-the-scenes video that Titan just posted! It was shot a few months ago (by a precariously-balanced videographer) when we were filming Incubus down in Palm Springs. In it, I talk about the filming process while shaving my head (I’m a halfway-decent multitasker, eh?), but I thought I’d add a few more details for this blog entry. In Incubus, I play François Sagat’s evil clone (which, when François says it, sounds like “evil clown”) in Part 1, and in Part 2 coming out next month, I’m in a scene with Christopher Daniels that I think looks pretty amazing. When we started shooting we were bathed in bright sunlight, but while we were in the process of filming, the sun vanished behind some towering thunderheads… and then the skies opened.

I think it was rather fitting that a movie about François battling gods and demons would feature a totally unexpected desert rainstorm. Christopher and I got soaked, there was thunder and lightning every few seconds… the whole thing was really dramatic. But the gods must truly have been smiling that day, because as were nearly done filming and needed to get clear shots of flying cum, the rain stopped and the sun returned, as if on cue. It was awesome.

Oh yeah… and there were grapes. Lots of grapes.

You can already watch see Incubus, Part 1 in its entirety. Part 2 will be out in March, but here’s a sneak peek of what the final product will look like! (UPDATE: Incubus, Part 2: The Final Chapter has since been released, and it won XBIZ Movie of the Year!)

 

The PoundnStulla Interview

Porn blogger PoundnStulla just posted an interview with me on his excellent blog! Here it is in its entirety. Be sure to check him out at www.poundnstulla.com, or catch him on Twitter at @PornBloggerXXX.


PoundnStulla: Are you new to the gay porn industry?

Jesse Jackman: Yup, I’m still pretty new. I filmed my first scene in August of 2011 (with Hunter Marx for the Titan movie Surveillance), although it wasn’t released until January. I’ve appeared in two more Titan films since then (Command Performance and Incubus 2), with a couple more filmings coming up in February and hopefully more after that.

PS: You’ve worked with Titan. Who else have you worked with?

I fucking love to cuddle.

It's true.

JJ: Titan’s the only one; after filming Surveillance they offered me an exclusive agreement which I happily accepted. I love working with them!

PS: Why did you decide to enter the industry?

JJ: You have to go back a few years for the answer to that one. When I was 23 years old (I’m 38 now) a friend of mine took a nude picture of me at Black’s Beach in San Diego. When he got the picture developed, he showed it to me and said, “Dude! You could totally do porn!” I said “Nahhhh, you’re crazy!” … but the seed had been planted. I think we’ve all at some point wondered what it would be like to work in the industry. I love new experiences and challenges, and am a naturally curious individual, so when Titan contacted me 15 (!) years later, how could I refuse?

PS: In your eyes, what makes a good porn star?

JJ: Intensity. Passion. A true enjoyment of sex, and the ability to really connect with your scene partner.

PS: How do you know as a porn star when you have arrived… meaning you are popular now?

JJ: When somebody starts selling a “Jesse Jackman Realistic Dildo,” I’ll know I’ve made it.

PS: What would people be surprised to know about you?

JJ: That I’m a huge goofy teddy bear dork. All too often, people tell me I look scary or unapproachable or that they assumed I’d be unfriendly, when in fact the exact opposite is true. I love talking to people and laughing and joking and giving big bear hugs. Not what you expected, eh?

PS: Finish this sentence: “If I weren’t in porn…”

JJ: … I’d be the same person, just not in porn.

PS: How often do you work out?

JJ: Every day… and that includes at least an hour of lifting and half an hour of cardio. Skipping even one day is a rare exception for me; I’m a creature of habit.

PS: Who in the gay porn industry would you like to work with?

JJ: There’s one person in particular whom I’ve really been hoping to work with… and in fact, just the other day I learned from Titan that I’ve been paired with him for one of my February projects! I’m not allowed to mention who it is yet, but let’s just say I’m VERY excited. Besides him, there are a few people I’ve really connected with online or at events with whom I’d love to shoot a scene; among them are Jessy Ares, Marco Wilson, Trenton Ducati, and François Sagat. (Actually, I have a brief uncredited appearance with François in “Incubus” as his evil twin… but I’d love the chance to do a proper scene with him.) And I think Shay Michaels is crazy hot. (Can you tell I’m acting like a kid in a candy store here?)

I’ve already had the good fortune of working with Hunter Marx, Roman Wright, and Christopher Daniels, all of whom were amazing.

PS: PoundnStulla likes to engage the topic of barebacking in complete neutrality by encouraging everyone to share their point of view on this touchy subject. How do you feel about it?

JJ: I’m going to take a very diplomatic approach here and say that I believe the members of a relationship – be it monogamous or monogamish or open – should define their own rules, as long as those rules work for all involved. Some relationships have certain conditions where barebacking is acceptable. As long as everyone’s on board and understand the risks involved, I don’t have a problem with it… and that goes for all sexual practices, not just barebacking.

That said, one of the reasons I decided to work with Titan is their policy of not producing bareback films, or hiring performers who have previously barebacked on camera. While I believe that everyone has a right to keep their personal sexual practices private, porn performers should remember that people will be watching and, perhaps, emulating their public behavior. Therefore, when making an appearance, be it on film or during a live show, I believe that a porn actor has a responsibility to set a safe example. What goes on in the privacy of his own bedroom/shower/kitchen/dungeon/knitting room, however, is nobody’s business but his own.

Where the rubber meets the…

I should really know better than to visit Nasty Pig HQ when I’m in New York. As soon as I walked in the door, Isaac smiled and said, “Oh hey Jesse… glad you’re here. We’re having a sample sale and I have a pair of rubber pants that are perfect for you. I wasn’t gonna sell them to just anyone.” What a slick fucker he is… but he was right. They’re perfect. I ended up getting a matching rubber vest, several tanktops, one of their kick-ass hoodies, and a rather sizeable dent in my bank account. Totally worth it, though. Pics below.

   

Titan just released my scene with Roman Wright in “Command Performance!”

I’m VERY happy to announce that my second scene with Titan was just released… the opening scene from Command Performance, a flip-flop scene with Roman Wright! There’s a huge problem with the audio equipment on the site of Jessy Ares’ big concert; Roman and I are given only a couple of days to fix it, but we find a way to temporarily shirk our responsibilities and work out our obvious frustration (wink, wink).

Here’s a link to the free preview. TitanMen subscribers can watch the whole scene right now in streaming high-def video; non-subscribers can still watch the preview, or sign up now to see this and literally thousands of other videos online (4709 to be exact… and counting). You can also order Command Performance on DVD.

Here are a few never-before-seen screen captures. Hope you enjoy the scene!

Sneak Peek at Command Performance

Here are a few promo shots from the new Titan movie Command Performance that’s coming out this week. In it I have a scene with Roman Wright that I talked about here. The movie also features performances from Jessy Ares (you can see a campy video for the song “Porn Star” here) and even Dario Beck’s “Blame it on the Bossa Nova.”
