Joeblow69 Interviews Sean Paris
What made you decide to get into porn?
Getting into this business was something I had decided to do a little over a
year ago. It wasn't until about 2 years ago that I began working out on a
regular basis, eating right, and in general caring about my health more. Once I
began to see positive results, I had a friend take some amateur photos. Kind of
on a whim, I sent them to the offices of Playgirl a lo and behold--they called
me back and said I'd gotten the "Real Man of the Month" spot. I
suppose that gave me the self-confidence to send out my photos to various
studios, and Titan was the first to ask me to come out and work on a project.
As a relative new comer to the scene, how did the reality of making porn
differ from your preconceived notions?
I've done 7 features films, and one for Titan that was a lower-budget video
(Manplay 004). You know, I really did not know WHAT to expect when I got into
porn. At the time I didn't personally know anyone in the biz, so I just had to
wing it. I think the one thing that surprised me is how long it actually takes
to shoot a scene...it's very technical and on
many occasions by the end of a 12-hour shoot we're all exhausted and ready for
bed so we can get up early the next day to do it all over again!
Do you have a favorite studio to work with?
Titan is tops when it comes to professionalism, video quality, and pairing.
Also, the guys that Titan casts tend to be exactly the kind of men I am
attracted to. They also gave me my first break and were very gentle with me.
Which of your scenes did you enjoy the most?
The scene with Patrick Knight in "R.E.M." Not only is he incredibly
handsome with a body to die for, he's a very intelligent, sweet man. We clicked
right away and I feel like our chemistry and sexual energy really showed
How was working with Patrick Knight?
From the first time I met Patrick at the airport, I knew we'd have a lot of fun
on the shoot. As I said before, he's a great guy. Originally, I was cast as a
bottom for R.E.M. but after discussing things with Patrick we decided we'd like
to flip-flop. At the time I wasn't crazy about bottoming, but with some
practice I was able to relax and kick back and very much
enjoy having him top me. Then it was his turn, and all I can say is I hope he
enjoyed it half as much as I did!
I've only seen you so far in Holler and R.E.M, but from those two movies,
you appear fairly versatile. Do you normally prefer top or bottom?
Or does it just depend on who you're with?
My preference is still to top, although I've become much more open to
bottoming. The way I look at it is, why not explore an avenue that can bring so
much pleasure? For me in my personal life, I'm more willing to bottom for an
older guy with experience. Someone who knows what they're doing and has
Is there anything you aren't willing to do on camera?
Never say never I think is my motto. Up until now I've been in fairly vanilla
scenes, which suits me fine. But I do have another, darker side...it just
remains to be seen if it's something that will ever be caught on tape...
Care to explain your "darker side" at
all? What exactly are we talking about here... bondage? S&M? Fisting?
Well let me just say this: I could picture a big, rough Daddy-type guy like
Steve Hurley or Ben Archer having their way with me...to a point. There's a
large part of me that is definitely drawn to the more submissive side of the
fence, but up until now I haven't explored that on-screen. So Steve or Ben, if
you read this...<grin>.
If you had your choice of filming a scene with anyone in the industry, who
would it be?
Damn, only one? Well, I happened to be laying poolside one weekend next to Ray
Harley; it was a clothing-optional resort, and he opted for none. He's sexy and
adorable all at the same time, and that fuzzy butt was driving me crazy! Also,
Chris Steele--now there's a man I'd happily bottom for on camera or not.
Are you currently in a relationship? If so, how does your significant
other deal with you having sex with other men on camera?
I've found that guys are initially curious about what I do. Especially if
they've never really been exposed to the "scene" it may be kind of
fascinating. But not everyone can deal with the reality of it, and
understandably so. So no, I'm not in a relationship at the time.
What qualities do you look for in a man?
In all honesty, I am and always have been attracted to men older than me. I
like the sense of comfort and stability provided. I like to feel taken care of,
and that doesn't have to mean financially. With some of the craziness that
invariably comes along with this line of work, it would be wonderful to have
someone who is entirely removed from it. And physically, I don't go for
the 0% body fat, perfectly ripped gym bod. I like naturally big
guys, a little belly is cute...wide shoulders and a nice hairy chest. And
someone who isn't afraid to put me in my place when I need it.
Do you take part in the dancing/escort scene?
I danced for 2 nights at a club in West Palm Beach, and once at Bourbon Street
here in San Diego. But it's funny, I can do a scene with any number of people
on the set but getting naked and dancing in front of a large group is still
somewhat nerve-wracking for me. I leave stripping to the experts.
One-on-one I'm very sexual and get off on driving a guy wild, and put my
talents to use as an escort. I've met some really great guys, and have enjoyed
the benefits of being an escort. Sure the money's good, but I've also been
fortunate enough to have had a number of great, memorable experiences. I love
to be given the opportunity to go on weekend getaways, or taken shopping...come
on, honestly, who wouldn't? It's never been something I felt forced into in any
way. And when the day comes to move on to a new career, I will.
Have you had to work with any gay-for-pay actors?
Of course. And I've heard stories about just how difficult it can be to work
with "straight" boys. Fortunately, the times I've been paired with
one the scene has gone well. I've even had come-ons from the
"straight" ones from time to time, imagine that! But hey, to each
their own and as long as they're into it enough to make it hot it doesn't make
a difference to me.
What do you do when you're not shooting porn? Accountant? Computer
Hehe, not quite. I guess you could say I'm a jack of all trades--I've done a
little bit of everything.
Do you have any new movies coming out soon?
My last two movies, Navy Blues and R.E.M., both came out recently. I did all
8 in a reasonably short amount of time and then took a short hiatus after
relocating from Florida to California. But if all goes well I'll be back on
the set next month.
Have you made any deals with any studios for your
upcoming videos yet? Or is that all still up in the air?
Titan and I are currently getting our schedules synchronized. It's kind of
funny, Titan is known for their rugged men and good old fashioned nasty sex,
but have thus far sheltered me from anything too hard-core. Maybe the next
flick I do with them will be geared more towards the "dark side"...
