5 Misconceptions About Porn and Pornstars
Mainstream Hollywood has certainly tried to portray what the porn industry is like. Movies like “Boogie Nights” come to mind. Most of those dramas about the business were set in the “golden age” of porn- the late 1970s and 1980s when the VHS tape revolutionized the industry. The reality is, porn, especially gay porn, isn’t like that in 2015. Yet all of us who are performers still get questions and hear the business that seem rather bizarre and dated to us.
Yes, I know you want to volunteer for the job. The bad news is, there are no fluffers in gay porn. If someone is having “trouble,” you have your co-star, or your iPad with some “selected content” to arouse you.
In Hollywood’s depiction of porn, lots of performers are using lots of drugs. In reality, drugs pretty much ruin your performance as a man. In more than fourteen shoots, I have yet to encounter even one performer who was high or even buzzed while doing a scene. Those of us who consider ourselves “professional” want our cocks to be rock hard, and to be in control of our bodies to flex and look best for the camera.
3. Production crew sex
Contrary to what most viewers think, the production crew- cameras, producers, directors, lighting guys- does not suddenly drop what their doing and start having sex with the performers. They have a job to do. We have a job to do. Do they get aroused while shooting us? Sometimes I suspect they do. Most of the time, however, they’ve seen enough fucking and sucking over the years, that we might as well be food they’re photographing. They’re professionals and they’re doing what they’re paid to do. Add to that, many companies, including TitanMen, have specific rules prohibiting the crew from touching the talent. Aside: I wouldn’t mind doing a scene with ANY of our crew members at TitanMen. All of them are attractive guys that I would fuck in a heartbeat.
If you’ve been working at the ice cream shop all day serving all kinds of ice cream, as well as sampling the ice cream, the last night you want when you get home, is have more ice cream. Shooting porn is hard work! Yeah that’s a pun, but it’s also true. You are flexing and posing muscles for hours. You are in challenging positions. You are physically exerting yourself by fucking, top or bottom, for hours at a time. And when it’s time to cum, you’ve got the mental pressure of 6-10 people all waiting on you to shoot a load. When that scene is over, (usually about six hours total) you’re wiped out. For the most part, you’re ready for a big meal (since you’ve eaten very little to look as lean as possible), and you want to sleep for about four hours. More sex is the last thing on your mind.
With that said, off-camera sex does sometimes happen between performers on the days they’re not doing a scene. If you’re in town for five days for two scenes and you have one day between where you’re not shooting, that’s when it’s most likely to happen. It’s still rare though. When you have sex for hours on-camera, finding more sex off-camera on a day off, isn’t nearly as pressing as it is for the average horny guy. I have, however, met guys who are on Grindr or Scruff hours after a scene looking for a hook-up that night or the next day.
5. You develop relationships with your co-stars
Friendships maybe. Relationships few. There aren’t many successful pornstar couples- Jesse Jackman and Dirk Caber are a rarity. Most of the time, we meet a few hours or maybe one day before a scene. Hopefully we talk, try to get to know each other, and develop some kind of cursory friendship. Sadly, not all performers are willing to invest in even that, despite the fact, it makes the scene so much better. Much like an actor in a real Hollywood movie, I want to BE my scene partner’s lover/fuck buddy/husband for that day. My goal is to get into their head and make it as real for them and for me as humanly possible. I generally won’t even text my real partner on the day of a scene because I want my all-consuming focus to be on my screen partner that day. It’s frustrating when other talent isn’t willing to try and make that kind of investment, but few seem to realize what a difference that makes.
For the most part, when a scene is over, all of us board planes and fly to our respective homes all over the country. Sometimes you build meaningful friends like the one I have with Jesse and Dirk. But most of the time, you don’t hear much from your screen partner once it’s over. I think we as performers can and should do better than that. It’s a tough business and all of us need the support of knowing we’re in it together.
My first time working with Titan was only my second time doing an adult video. When I first decided to do porn, like anything in my life, I did my research. I “pulled through” hours of video, carefully considering the men, the production values, and the reputation of the studios. Titan has always been one of the biggest names in gay porn. To say I was excited and honored to get the call, would be putting it mildly. My parents and siblings all know I do movies, but I think they were a bit stunned by my sense of pride in announcing I was going to be shooting with Titan Men.
When I arrived at the Titan house in Palm Springs on that March day, Dirk Caber and Hunter Marx were busy doing a product demo. After putting my stuff down, I quietly enjoyed a protein bar while watching dildos disappear into the two of them repeatedly. I remember starting to get a little nervous and intimidated knowing I would be having hot sex with Dirk the next day. That evening, we all got to know each other over dinner. And while that helped, I still wondered if I was up to their caliber!
Dirk was first. The morning started with us and director Jasun Mark shooting stills. Dirk was so playful and a great kisser. I immediately felt at ease. We had a few lines at the beginning of our video, which despite little discussion, flowed from both of us with ease. Nothing at all seemed awkward or forced. The first time we really starting making out, both of us got instantly hard. Gradually, I worked my way down his torso and took out his perfectly shaped cock. One plus to shooting porn is you will have plenty of time to enjoy every part of your partner’s body. I really enjoyed eating Dirk’s ass. When we flipped around, he was just as awesome at giving head as he was kissing.
Eventually, we moved to the bed. He topped me first. Dirk’s cock has a great head that popped right in and was never uncomfortable the hour or so he was topping me. I love getting fucked and I was close to coming several times. When he flipped over onto his back, a bunch of things went through my mind- like whether I’d measure up to the amazingly hot men he has worked with- not to mention his amazingly hot husband Jessie Jackman.
Fucking Dirk was just as a hot as I expected. Both of us were very vocal throughout the entire scene. That wasn’t fake. We both were enjoying it that much. We also laughed often. Sex is supposed to be fun, and wild, and crazy. I think many men get so wrapped-up in thinking they have to be a certain way, they forget how to just be animal and go for it in the moment. I don’t ever take myself too seriously.
After about 25 minutes of pounding his ass, I could tell Dirk was getting close. Jasun stopped us for just a moment to re-position cameras, then told us to go for it. I fucked him as hard as I could, then he shot a massive load on his chest. I had been close throughout the entire time, so a few seconds later, I too shot all over his cock and balls. After six hours of still pictures and video, both of us collapsed and took a long nap.
People often ask me how much sex really goes on when the camera is not rolling. My experience so far is that performers are pretty tired after a full day of shooting, however, the nap apparently helped Dirk and me. That night in the hot tub we started kissing again which lead to another scene in my bedroom- this time- without the cameras.
Dirk has become one of my best friends in porn and recently, we got to see each other again in Palm Springs when I did a scene with his real life husband. I’m still waiting for a “private scene” like the one with Dirk. Like me, Jesse Jackman is a BIG guy and the two of us together were explosive on a number of levels. More about that in a future blog posting. Look for the movie with Jesse and me this spring.
Dallas Steele is a 6’3″, 220 lb retired news anchor whose body resembles a Tom of Finland sexual super hero. The scruffy daddy pornstar has more going for him than his nine-inch cut dick and muscles though, he’s been nominated for two regional Emmys for his work as a newscaster and likes a man who knows more about the world than how good his ass looks. Catch his latest scene in Blue Collar Ballers with Dirk Caber.
Trent: What is the inspiration behind your porn name?
Dallas Steele: When I first decided to go into porn, I agonized over what stage name to use. After talking with a small group of close friends, I came up with five possibilities- all of them amalgamations of cities, big and small, in Texas. I had a contest on Facebook where more than 2000 friends and followers voted. “Dallas Steele” was by far the top vote getter. The conclusion was that it combined my home of almost 20 years with strength of the word “steel.” To me, porn names are supposed to be a bit cliche and funny, so combining my city “Dallas” and the suggestion of a solid erection “Steele,” is all in good fun.
Trent: Why did you choose to work with TitanMen?
Dallas Steele: There are a handful of legendary companies in gay male porn and Titan is one of them. Titan is a powerful brand that represents intense masculinity, sexuality, and style. Anyone can rent a cheap motel room, get some horny men together, and get them to fuck on camera. And while I appreciate that there is market for that, I also feel that men, despite our primal nature, want something more. We want the whole fantasy of the coach and the student jock, we want to see the car mechanic seduce his customer, we want to see the dynamics of the situations we’ve all lusted for, but have never actually acted on- at least most of us.
Titan’s production is tasteful, well illuminated, well photographed, and intensely sexual, without feeling sleazy and low end. The editing is crisp, well paced and gives thoughtful consideration to what the viewer wants to see. The trailers are so well done, I’m often tempted to show my parents I’m so proud. I am honored to be a Titan Man.
Trent: What was working with Dirk Caber like? Give us the dirty details!
Dallas Steele: At the time, it was only the second occasion I had ever had sex in a commercial production. Knowing Dirk Caber was a big star and I was the “newbie,” I was very intimidated and nervous (though he says he had no clue all that was going on inside my head). Our scene was intense and the passion you see in it was real. This flip-flop scene was my first time bottoming on camera. We even continued in between takes many times. And later that night, we even did more “exploring” on our own away from the cameras.
More recently, in another upcoming Titan production you’ll see next year, I got to work with Dirk’s real-life husband Jesse Jackman. Jesse is a big man. I’m a big man. That posed some interesting challenges for both of us and for the production crew. The two of us together are more than 500lbs. I think our scene is probably one of my best yet. As a bottom and as a top, Jesse is amazing- all that muscle and the curved cock that hits all the right spots!
Let me add that Dirk and Jesse have become two of my very best friends in the business. They are class acts from start to finish. I would do well to emulate them and their conduct as performers.
Trent: You’re a personal trainer, what does your work out routine look like? How many hours to spend in the gym?
Dallas Steele: I spend about 16 hours per week training myself and my workout partner. Four days of lifting, three days of cardio and abs. I consider my cardio days to be “rest days,” but even that is pretty intense. I do HIT or High Intensity Intervals for 40 minutes per session, then 20 minutes of abs. My lifting split is chest/tris, back/biceps, shoulders/traps, and the legs have their own day.
Beyond the hours in the gym are the hours in the kitchen. I cook all of my food two days per week. All of it is weighed and measured. My proteins are fish, chicken and extra lean beef. My carbs are brown rice, sweet potato, Quinoa, and sometimes white potato. I do go out to eat on occasion, but try to keep my diet as clean as possible except for a cheat meal, maybe once every two weeks. I don’t smoke- cigarettes anyway. My biggest vice is probably the occasional vodka and diet 7Up.
Trent: What kind of things turn you on the most in another guy?
Dallas Steele: Breathing and a pulse… lol. One can’t be too choosy at my age. Seriously though, I like all kinds of guys of all ages and all races. I like guys in good shape, who don’t smoke, don’t use a ton of drugs, and most of all, have a good self-image without being full of themselves. Nothing turns me off more than a man who thinks he is somehow better than everyone else based on a six pack or a great ass. God has given all us gifts- some of them physical, some of them mental or emotional. I look hard to find those gifts in everyone I meet.
BTW- I do LOVE a great ass or a big cock or both. But before all of that, you better be able to have a conversation with some complete literate sentences. I expect you to know something about the world around you besides what swimsuit is hot this season. An educated, good looking man with a great body and great attitude is tops with me.
Trent: Is there someone special in your life?
Dallas Steele: There is indeed someone special in my life. His name is DJ and he’s from a small town in the Texas panhandle. He’s an amazing boy. At 31, he’s a man, but given our age difference, he will always be my “boy,” and he loves that. By “boy,” that doesn’t mean he is entirely submissive (he tops too), but that is his dynamic in the scope of our relationship. He has an amazing ass and loves getting fucked. More importantly, I’ve never known someone with a more kind, loving heart. He too loves showing off his body and has an active Twitter account (@boysteele) and Instagram (@dj.13). So far, he hasn’t done any porn, but never say never.
Before DJ, I was partnered for 11 years to a wonderful man, who died August 12, 2014 from an accidental overdose. I came home from bartending and found him in our home. Losing Kelly was without any doubt the worst thing that has ever happened in my life. Not a day goes by that I still don’t think of him or wish he were still here. My very first shoot, eight months after his death, was a solo for COLT Studios. Kelly used to tell me all the time that he wanted to have sex with a COLT man just once. In fact, he DID have sex with a COLT man. He just didn’t know at the time. And on the morning of the shoot, I went off on my own for a second and I told Kelly this day was for him.
Trent: What are your other passions in life besides fitness and sex?
Dallas Steele: I love to travel and read. I’ve been to Hawaii many times. My grandparents as well as my Aunt and Uncle lived on the Big Island for 20 years. I’ve been all over the Caribbean on more than 15 cruises in 10 years. My favorite cruises are Atlantis Events Vacations- all gay cruises. The combination of the all-gay environment, amazing parties, outstanding entertainment, and all the sex you can possibly handle- is unbeatable. I recently got to travel to Spain for a shoot with another high-end studio, “Men At Play.” It was my first time traveling to Europe. I had an amazing time. Top of my list is London, Paris, and Berlin. Hopefully someday I’ll have the money to get there.
I also love to read- mostly non-fiction or biographies. It has been my experience that truth IS in fact stranger than fiction. I could tell stories from my own life that are unlike anything you’ll ever read in any book.
Trent: Tell us something we would never had guessed about you.
Dallas Steele: I was fat as a teenager. At 15, I was 5’10, weighed 240lbs and had a 40 inch waist. In junior high and high school, I got teased so severely about my weight, I started cutting classes and was eventually kicked out of school. I tried to kill myself but failed, eventually being returned to a continuing high school for misfits of the world. Paired with the drug abusing teens and pregnant girls, I did quite well because we all knew we didn’t fit in. A teacher at the school suggested I take my GED and move on to college- so I did and I finished two years ahead of the losers that had so aggressively teased me. But during that time, I also realized I could do something about my weight. I started walking 30 minutes per day, 3 times per week, then running, then I started changing my diet. Within one year, I had lost 60lbs! It would be another three years before I discovered lifting, but once I picked-up the weight and saw what it could do for me, I was hooked. I’ve now been working out every single day, including holidays and weekends, for 23 years. I’ve missed a total of 42 days of illness and injury.
The second surprise: I spent 23 years as a television news anchor/reporter in four states and five cities! My longest run was in Dallas where I worked for the CBS affiliate and was nominated for two regional Emmys. I left the business in 2013 after my boss in SW Florida told me that research had shown “people here just don’t like you.” Add to that, the immense pressure of daily ratings where your job is virtually on the line every single day. TV news as we know it is dying, and the old school model is trying to divide a financial pie that has shrank by 75% in just 15 years. As someone who “paid his dues” for two decades, I wasn’t willing to go back to doing every job I did in a small market for less money. I get asked daily by porn fans if I miss TV news. I miss telling great stories, I miss the rush of sharing breaking news and I miss getting to know viewers. What I don’t miss is the schizophrenic management at every station that can’t decide from day to day what they want, and as a result are constantly blaming the talent and trying to make the talent be something they aren’t. The irony is, if they left the talent the fuck alone to be who we are, viewers would be a lot happier. Most anchors are so beat down, even they don’t have a clue anymore about who they really are.

A long and hard day has their sweat-soaked jeans getting tighter by the second, the pressure building with bulges ready to burst. Watch TitanMen exclusives Eddy Ceetee, Jesse Jackman and Nick Prescott unleash their beasts as Blue Collar Ballers get to work. Bearded buds Nick Prescott and Eddy Ceetee heat up the warehouse, storing their big cocks in each other’s mouth before the chiseled Nick offers his hairy hole. Beefy Jesse Jackman and Hugh Hunter brandish their power tools in the garage, Jesse rubbing his salt-and-pepper scruff all over the bottom’s bod before fucking him. Dirk Caber and Dallas Steele break in Dirk’s new home by whipping out their big dicks, their increasingly intense encounter punctuated by dirty verbal exchanges.
Earlier this week I posted a few Polaroid stills from the up-coming Hunter Marx/Dirk Caber scene in the soon-to-be-released Titanmen movie Double Exposure.
This isn’t the first scene Hunter and Dirk have performed together… they teamed up with Shay Michaels for a super-hot 3-Way in Sting and did a fetish scene together in Heavy Duty.
There’s also a pretty fun clip of them leather gear shopping and using a Fuck Bench here..
You’ll also see a quick cameo of Dirk’s real-life husband Jesse Jackman. This was a very fun movie for the guys to put together combining the Titan hardcore footage with cellphone and webcam video shot by the stars at their homes and in their real bedrooms. A gritty, fantasy fetish feature that’s still just as hot as a Titanmen movie. Perfect.
Dirk Caber twitches as he sleeps, his hot bod at the mercy of Nick Prescott in his dream. With his wrists and ankles bound to a table, Dirk’s cock drips and throbs as his balls—squeezed in a stretcher—get bluer by the second. Dirk spits a flying wad that lands on Nick’s scruffy chin, the two soon kissing as Nick teases and edges his bud—squeezing his nipples, tonguing him, spitting in his mouth, exchanging pit licks. He licks down Dirk’s muscles, a strand of precum clinging to Nick’s beard before he opens wide to devour Dirk’s cock.
He rubs Dirk’s hole, the two spitting at each other as they growl. Nick twists a big dildo up Dirk’s ass (“Want me to stretch your hole more?”), the bottom’s cock throbbing as he gets it deep. Nick then sits down on Dirk’s dick and rides, the two taking turns going up and down in a heated fuck. Nick fires off his load before Dirk begs for more: “Fuck me! Please fuck me!” Nick dildos him again, using his own cum as lube to stroke Dirk off at the same time—exclaiming “Yeah, pig!” as the grunting hunk releases.

Two strangers submit to urges. A clash of cultures heats up. An after-school session crosses the line. See what happens when you Cut to the Chase in the latest Joe Gage Chronicle led by TitanMen exclusive Dario Beck. Arriving early for a garage sale, Dario Beck gets a special offer—Jed Athens’ wet mouth on his thick cock. Dario sucks the smoothie back, then rides up and down his steel shaft.
Redneck Mike Tanner wins the lottery—and a meeting with realtor Anthony London, who wants his hillbilly hardon. After swapping sucks, Mike buries his dick in the bottom’s high-class hole. J.D. Phoenix stays after class to get help studying, but instead gets the cocks of teachers Dolan Wolfe and Dirk Caber up his holes—with Dolan also taking Dirk’s dick like a man.

Joe Gage continues his “Chronicle” series with “Cut To The Chase.”
This movie also features Dario Beck in a rather adorable mustache that’s going to bring back the Porn ‘Stache fad, we’re almost positive. PLUS, returning stars Anthony London, Mike Tanner, Jed Athens and the first-time appearance in a Titanmen movie of Dolan Wolfe, whom we’re sure you’ll see more of in the future.
A quick BTS clip from the upcoming Joe Gage chronicle “Cut To The Chase.” JD Phoenix poked Dirk right in the eye and the two just kept going. Nobody on the crew noticed because they were too focused on other things and it wasn’t until JD couldn’t contain his laughing anymore that they even stopped.
(San Francisco, October 10th, 2014) TitanMen is pleased to announce it has signed industry newcomer Eddy Ceetee as their newest exclusive performer. The 25 year-old stud stands 5’9” and weighs in at 195 lbs. of thick and hairy muscle. Eddy was discovered by TitanMen exclusive Jesse Jackman and his husband Dirk Caber while working at a local club.
(Left to right- TitanMen Dirk Caber, Eddy Ceetee and Jesse Jackman)
“When Dirk and I first met Eddy we were immediately impressed by his handsome face, killer smile and of course his thick and muscular body.” says TitanMen exclusive Jesse Jackman. “In addition to those great looks, he demonstrated intelligence, charm, respect, and an ease that only comes with confidence. As Dirk and I kept talking to him, it because increasingly clear to us that he’d make a perfect Titan Man”
Eddy’s Lebanese descent clearly shines through in his dark swarthy complexion, piercing eyes, hairy muscular body and an impressive fat cock. Eddy will be filming his first scenes later this month with TitanMen lead director Jasun Mark. Potential scene partners include TitanMen exclusives Jesse Jackman, Nick Prescott, Jay Bentley, Hunter Marx and George Ce.
“I am excited to announce that I have decided to sign on as an exclusive with TitanMen. This decision was so easy to make, especially since meeting Jesse and Dirk who I gotta say are 2 of the greatest sweetest guys,” says Eddy. “TitanMen is a perfect place for me to start my porn career. After speaking with Jasun it felt like a good fit and I felt very comfortable, which I think is essential. I’m looking forward to making my viewers fantasies come true on screen with TitanMen and to creating some hard hitting scenes, because after all that’s what porn is all about, so be on the lookout!”
When Jesse first texted Eddy’s pics to director Jasun Mark, his initial response was “Stunningly handsome… wow… yes… oh my God that fucking smile. Perfect!”. “I am so looking forward to filming Eddy,” says Jasun. “He’s the epitome of a young TitanMan…smart, confident, handsome and with a killer body and smile!”
Can’t wait to see him in action? Check out his Instagram Page for more…
After a safety inspection, Dirk Caber isn’t ready to leave Felix Barca: “There’s one more thing I’d like to inspect,” says the stud, moving in for a kiss. Their hands roam, the bulges in their jeans touching as they kiss. Dirk licks Felix’s pit, arm and chest, soon burying his face in his bud’s groin—licking his shaft before it pops out.
Dirk slurps on the uncut beauty, teasing the foreskin and taking it deep, his beard rubbing Felix’s shaft after he sucks on his balls. Dirk reaches up to grip Felix’s chest—then rubs his beard and head on Felix’s cock before taking it deep. They kiss as their big boners grind against each other in hot swordplay—Felix’s rod poking Dirk’s sac.
Dirk feasts on his hole, then fucks Felix from behind. The bottom smiles as he gets rammed, his ass rippling. Felix sits down on the top, his own big boner bobbing as he goes down. On his back, the bottom gets stroked and fucked by Dirk at the same time, their sweaty bods soon covered in cum.
The new Titanmen movie is called Heavy Load and also stars Jesse Jackman, Jay Bentley, Hans Berlin and Mack Manus.
