One of the perks of my job is being able to have access to some interesting people and I’m not sure why, but throughout the years I have gravitated to those in porn. Mainly because I have become fascinated as to how the in industry works. We hear a lot about female porn stars and most, when you say the words, ‘male porn star’ conjure up images of Ron Jeremy from the 80’s. So who really are these men and what are their lives all about?

Getting older is about being cute, wise and elegant, but unless you are Jane Fonda, being sexually attractive is not often a label used. But this issue has more importance and depth than just losing the label of sexy. As we age, sex is more important. Sex isn’t about just making babies and trying to prolong the honeymoon phase.
