Oh, man - today we're in luck! One of my favorite porn studs, Shay Michaels, is doing an interview with us, and telling us all about his porn experiences.
Anthony: How'd you become interested in porn? Tell us about how you got started in the business.
Shay Michaels: I have always been interested in porn and a fan of hot guys having sex. My start came through a bigmuscle.com profile that I had. A lot of porn stars are on there, and I happened to become friends with Bruno Bond. He asked me if I wanted to star in a movie and after months of thought I said yes.
Anthony: What do you like best about being in porn, and is there anything you don't like about it?
Shay: I love the opportunity to meet incredibly good looking guys and explore fantasies that are hard to do in real life. Honestly I love being in front of the camera and doing what I love which is fucking. Ummm... least favorite part of porn is when your co-star or co-stars are not into each other. Making that physical and mental connection makes what I do sex and not acting.
Anthony: Top or Bottom? Which do you prefer and what's your favorite position?
Shay: I am a versatile guy. Over the years I noticed that i go through periods where I am a total dominant top, and periods where I am a total slut pig bottom. As a top I love doggie, as I love forcing my cock in balls-deep and being able to grab a guy by his hips makes it very easy. As a bottom I like missionary position, as taking a guy's cock and looking into his eyes in so intense.
Anthony: What is your ultimate sexual fantasy? Who would you most like to work with in porn?
Shay: My ultimate fantasy is a group situation where one guy is in a sling and helpless to stop a group of tops from using him all night. I have already worked with Kyle King, which was an absolute blast. Nate Carlton is so handsome, and I would love to work with him. Also Cody Cummings is another favorite.
Anthony: What's it like having sex on camera compared to in your private life? Ever been nervous or couldn't get it up for a shoot?
Shay: My first scene with Scott Logan was terrifying, but I got it up. I bring the same intensity on film that I have in real life. For me fucking is fucking and its the same whether there is a camera present or not.
Anthony: How has everyone around you accepted your decision to become a porn star? Do you have a relationship outside of work? What are some of your hobbies?
Shay: My friends and sister have been extremely supportive of my decision to enter the porn industry. I've not told my parents as I think they would not be accepting at all. I am currently dating a guy who is not in the industry, and he is very accepting of what I do. I have grown up in the gym and think of lifting as a passionate hobby I have. Love to hike when the weather in AZ is cool enough to allow it.
Anthony: Has working in the adult industry changed your personal life?
Shay: It has allowed me to be more open sexually in my personal life. A ot of fantasies I have always wanted to explore have been done on film, and that has transferred to a new confidence in my personal life.
Anthony: Do you have time for a love life of your own, are you in a relationship? What are some of your hobbies outside of the bedroom?
Shay: Yes, I have both the time and energy for a love life. I am dating a wonderful guy and looking forward to a healthy and happy relationship together. We both love to travel, entertain, and be outdoors.
Anthony: Got any big projects or news on the way?
Shay: I am gearing up to star with David Anthony in Titan's upcoming Folsom release movie in July.
Anthony: Where can new fans find you? Do you have a Web site, Facebook or MySpace account, blog or Twitter?
Shay: Right now I am only on Twitter @Shay_Michaels . I am going to get my facebook page and blog page up soon. Also need to tackle the website thing, too.
