The Alessio Romero Interview
Manhunt, the world’s leading website for men to meet men, celebrates its 10th anniversary this fall with MANHUNT X TOUR 2011, a 20-city club tour. Presented by Dick Dorm, the parties unite leading circuit DJs with some of the biggest names in porn, including Alessio Romero, who will perform live with fellow Titan stud Jayden Grey at West Hollywood’s Here Lounge on Oct. 16.
We spoke to the multi-talented and faceted bear Adonis about how he’s working to make himself a better man in order to find everlasting love.
How did an innocent, young Latino find his way into porn?
Innocent and young? Me? Not really. One thing you got right is I am Latino and proud of it. As far as getting into porn, I simply filled in an application at a major studio and everything started pretty quickly from there.
Have you always been an exhibitionist?
I was very shy when I was younger, but for the past five years, I have become something of an exhibitionist. For some reason, things for me go in waves. Sometimes I’m a bit more conservative. Other times, I’m fully out there. Right now, my exhibitionism is in low tide.
What is one thing you have done on film that you never thought you would?
What convinced you to try it?
A nice-looking cock can be very convincing.
Where did you grow up?
In Mexico City. I lived there until I was 19 and then moved to L.A.
Have you done any stripping?
Yes, of course. The last time was four weeks ago. My best friend in New York owns Eastern Bloc NYC, my favorite bar. I worked there for a bit. It was fun.
Are you good on a pole?
I don’t do any of that upside-down shit. I am too old for that [Laughs]. I use the pole to rest my body.
Like a cane?
Watch it. I’m not that old.
You could work with any studio. Why Titan Men?
I love the quality of their films. Also, they’re fun to work with. They take full advantage of my versatility, which I love.
Is there anything that you won’t do on film?
I have my boundaries. That’s another thing that’s great about Titan Men. They take care of me. Not just like any other model. They take care of me as a sober man. I have an amazing relationship with everybody in the company.
Would you date a porn star?
Would you date you?
Not right now. I’m a work in progress. I’m working on myself to become a better man.
Besides a body of steel, what do you offer?
I’m simply a good guy.
Have you always been hairy?
All this hair I have today has been attached to my body for the past six years.
Would you ever take clippers to your chest?
I have used clippers, but never again. I love my hairy self.
What do you look for in a partner?
Good sex and monogamy.
Have you hooked up on Manhunt?
Yes. Hasn’t everyone?
Do you classify yourself as a top or bottom on Manhunt?
Versatile. Should I give you a list of my keywords?
Sure, if you’re willing to share.
Muscle, wrestling, fur, sweat, man scent, masculinity, leather, spitting, kissing, rough sex, tender sex, passion, bottom, top. Flipfucking, role play, domination, vanilla, total pig, submission, cuddling, sling, UFC, porn, casual fuck, oral, anal and bondage.
That’s a mouthful.
Tell us about your favorite Manhunt experience.
My last experience is always my favorite.
How many more years of hooking up do you have left?
I’m hoping to find that special someone soon.
What would fans be surprised to learn about you?
Sobriety makes me precum.
What can your fans expect when you host the Manhunt X Tour?
I’ll be fully charged and in charge.
You will be showcasing your dominant side, then?
What’s your current life goal?
I want to go to school for sports medicine.
So you have a brain too?
Everything on me is big.
Speaking of big, Manhunt celebrates its big 10 this year.
Happy birthday, Manhunt!
Do you have a special birthday wish for them?
I wish Manhunt and all of its members many more successful years of fucking and sucking.
