I had the pleasure of working with my good friend Sylvester Q again on Saturday night at the "Men in Uniform-Leather/Fetish/ Uniform Party" at Steel nightclub here in Fort Lauderdale. What a great night... except for a horrible case of CRABS!!!
We walked into the curtained off photo area on the back patio to find many large crabs crawling everywhere. They were even crawling up the black velvet curtains! But a few crabs didn't get in the way of a very successful night.
Sylvester Q, Enrique and I had a full night of impromptu photo shoots with the party goers. It was the usual mixture of sexy and fun singles, couples and groups hamming it up in front of the camera. Gotta say there were some HOT guys doing some VERY HOT things. And of course, being the gentleman that I am, I'm always there to lend a hand, or tongue, or whatever is needed to get the perfect shot. ;-)
Besides being an awesome friend, Sylvester Q is an amazing photographer with the gift of being able to bring people out of their shell and make them comfortable and even empowered during their photo shoot. You leave a session with him feeling confident and uplifted and are rewarded with great photos! You can check out some of the photos he's taken of me in the "Photos" section on my website (www.nickmoretti.com) and there is a link to his website from there if you want to find out more about him.
I also had my first experience with a Bootblack at the party. This cool guy named Dire had set up shop inside and he rocked my world! I've always been intrigued with the whole Bootblacking thing, and even turned on by it. (Something about sitting up high with some guy servicing you can bring out the Daddy in anyone.) But I've always been kinda shy about climbing up in one of those chairs in front of everyone. (I know... a freakin' shy porn star. Hey, it happens!) But this time I climbed up in his chair and was treated to an incredible experience. Not only were my boots shinier than they have ever been before but it was sensual as hell and I left there feeling like I had just spent a day at the spa thanks to his stretching and massaging my legs and feet! If you haven't had an experience with a Bootblack before, I highly recommend it. You can email Dire at BBDIRE@COMCAST.NET if you ever require the services of an excellent Bootblack.
I spent the rest of the weekend cleaning house and working out like a dog! I have several upcoming porn shoots coming up and I want to look my best. So the next couple of weeks will be eating right, resting up, and pumping major iron. (Except for the upcoming weekend of drunken debauchery at Southern Decadence in New Orleans of course! LOL)
While Hurricane Fay blew by yesterday I cleaned house, watched "Sheer Genius", and sipped on Coconut Rum & Chocolate Soy Milk cocktails (don't laugh until you try it!). At one point my cell phone rang and it was a San Francisco number. Been getting a lot of calls from there lately. Usually calls for more porn shoots. Turns out it was the guys (actually ladies) at Kink.com asking if I would like to fly out to San Francisco for their big premiere party. HELL YA!!!!!!
The Party is going to be next month on a Friday evening and they asked me to stay on as their guest for the weekend and shoot with them again on Monday. AWESOME!!! The people who work at Kink.com are cool as hell. Women and men, straight and gay and everything in beween... cool! Staying at the Armory again will be awesome!!! They own it, film there and put their models up there. That place is creepy as hell. Like a combination of reform school, prison, castle and dungeon. Last time I stayed there it was just a security guard at the front desk, 2 cats and me in the whole building. And it is HUGE!!! An entire city block!
I'm also psyched about doing another scene with them. I was a little nervous the first time I shot with them since I hadn't done a heavy duty bondage and S&M scene before or a gang bank scene, but Van Darkholme, the director, guided me and they turned out great! You can see a link to free previews for those scenes if you click through to my website (www.nickmoretti.com).
NOTE: The photo on top is from the Bound Gods shoot "Master Nick and slave dante". The second photo is from the Bound Gods shoot "Tober Gang Bang: Part One". "Tober Gang Bang: Part Two" will be released shortly.
Construction workers are passing back and forth carrying roofing supplies through the door to the rooftop that is next to my desk here at work. Only one of them is hot... but it only takes one! I remarked to one of my coworkers that the hunky worker would probably be more comfortable if he took his shirt off, but he didn't hear me. Hey... I'm just concerned for his well being. Wouldn't want him to overheat. (Like I am watching his bulging biceps as he's carrying large steel beams.)
South Florida is under a tropical storm warning right now and, by the view from my window, it looks like the end of the world is quickly approaching. Hey... another hot worker just passed within inches of me. This one isn't hunky. He's more the dangerous, tattooed, trailer park, bad boy type. (Damn, I must be horny!) So much for getting any work done today.
Crap, the dangerous, trailer boy just came over, called me "sir" and told me he was going to be carrying a huge ladder through my area. "Sir"? That hurt! It's not like he said it in a Master/Slave kind of way. That would have been hot. It was more the way the lady at the perfume counter at Macy's addresses customers who are annoying her. "Excuse me Maam".
That's OK... I'd still do him.
Being the caring company it is, my company has agreed to let us all go at noon today. Coincidentally, the storm is forecasted to get much worse then. I guess that laying off tons of employees the last few months wasn't enough. Now they are sacrificing us to the wrath of Mother Nature. I guess there is no severance package or unemployment claims to deal with in that scenario.
With any luck, I should have the rest of the day off to work on my website, watch "Sheer Genius" and work out my stomach some more. I already worked out from 5:30am to 7:30am this morning but I want to have a rock solid 6-pack in one month. This weekend I got booked for two more films next month and I want to look REALLY GOOD!
I've spent the last couple of weeks getting my porn related website up and running. It's been fun but it has not been easy. Maybe I'm just getting too old for that kind of thing.
I put off starting the site for about a year now and I finally got fed up with friends making more money on the movies I've done than I did! Seriously, one friend has made about double what I did on one film by just registering with some affiliates and getting a cut every time someone clicks through to them and signs up or buys something. So I've been signing up as an affiliate with lots of companies and putting links to them on my site.
You only get one lump payment when you do a film and then they can do whatever they want with the photos and related materials from that point on. Who knows where your face (or weiner) will show up? Calendars, greeting cards, ads for the bathhouse, public service ads for gonorrhea. The other ways to make money off of the movies is to either do public appearances (not so easy for me since I have a full time job) or to escort. Don't think the escorting thing is for me. Not that I have anything against it at all. Some of my best friends are escorts. Seriously.
It's going to be a couple more weeks until I have the site working the way I want it to be. Right now I'm uploading tons of photos and trying to put some galleries together. Ugh. Not so easy. Eventually I'd like to get to the point where I can put up some of my own original content and maybe even a webcast. Of course, I'll probably be 65 by then and have to market to a whole different market. Ya... senior citizen porn is HOT! LOL!
Feel free to check out the site at www.nickmoretti.com and let me know what you think. Remember it's a porn site so there is going to be nudity. Ummm.. actually, how is that different from this blog? Feel free to click through any of the links and buy a membership or product from the site it takes you to. Hey... a girls gotta eat! ;-)
I went to see Mamma Mia last night after so many friends and coworkers went on and on and on about how great it was. One friend even said, "People were dancing in the isles!" Umm.... I think he was mistaken and what he really saw was terrified moviegoers running through the isles trying to escape the horror that is Mamma Mia the movie. God did this movie suck!
Don't get me wrong, I had a great time watching this train-wreck of a movie. But that was only because we were hysterical laughing at how bad the whole thing was. Even Meryl Streep couldn't save this one. Poor thing ran around singing at the top of her lungs, running up hills, jumping on beds, climbing on roofs, falling off of everything in site. I keep waiting to hear the loud snap as her hip shattered into pieces. How old were there freaking women? And those musical numbers with the nubile and horny young boys being seduced by the child molesting, shrieking old hags (yes, I said it... Christine Baranski is a shaking old hag no matter how much plastic surgery she is sporting) were very, very disturbing. I felt like I needed a shower to get the "Mommy, the old lady touched me in my bad place" feeling off of me. Ugh.
I don't understand why everyone complaining that Pierce Brosnan's singing was so horrible that it ruined the movie for him. EVERYONE in the WHOLE MOVIE couldn't sing for shit! The problem with Pierce's performance is that when he sang, he looked like he was severely constipated and a farm vet had his arm halfway up his butt trying to dislodge whatever was causing the blockage. Did it actually hurt him as much to sing as it did for us to hear him sing? I doubt it.
And one more thing, what the heck was up with Colin Firth turning into a big ole mo at the end and ending up with the very hot and very young boy? Where the hell did that come from? I'm sorry if you didn't see the movie yet and that spoiled the ending for you, but the whole thing sucks anyway, so I really couldn't ruin it more than the director did already.
So it's two thumbs way up the director's butt on this movie. Sorry if you disagree with my opinion and liked it. Really sorry.
Working my ass of at the gym trying to stay sane gave me a pretty good body. I’m proud of that and I take it for what it is… hours of hard work at the gym and good genetics (I mean I’m no spring chicken!). I’d been approached by photographers many times to get some photos done and always shot them down. I had done a little bit modeling back in New York City when I was in my early 20’s and HATED it. Seemed most of the guys had really bad, primadonna attitudes and the photographers were freaks. I was young and straight out of Brooklyn. EVERYTHING seemed extreme to me.
After thinking, I said to myself, “What the fuck”. I mean, I’m not getting any younger and I would like to capture what I look like now for when I do get old. So I set up a shoot with a photographer visiting from out of town. It was at a local gay guest house. Figured, if it went bad, at least no one would know. The shoot went OK and I didn’t get too nervous, even being nude outside. The photographer was nice and made me feel pretty comfortable. I walked away from that feeling OK and took some time to process it. A couple of weeks later I got a print of a photo in the mail from the shoot and I was glad I did it. (The photo above is the photo from that shoot.)
A local photographer, who’s work I REALLY LIKE, contacted me and asked me to shoot with him. I didn’t hesitate this time. We spent about 4 hours shooting at a construction site, the beach, under a pier… cool locations. It was fun, he was sweet as hell, and I was thrilled with the results. Beautiful photos! I credit the photographer for that. He is amazing.
I did a couple of more shoots, some with clothes, and some nude, and even got paid. Hey! I could make some money out of this! Hmmm… Gotta remember that I’m not in my 20’s and I’m only 5″8″. Obviously, I didn’t have aspirations of being the next supermodel.
About the same time, I’d been contacted by a couple of photographers asking if I was interested in doing porn. I thought about it and didn’t think it was something I wanted to try. It sounded WAY out of my league and I really didn’t know what was involved. It scared me.
One of the photographers invited me to a “Porn Star Pool Party” in Ft. Lauderdale. He seemed like a nice guy and I took him up on the invite. There was really only one Porn Star there and the rest were all local guys, some of who I knew. Everyone kept asking me if I was a porn star. It was funny. We ate BBQ, drank and had a nice time talking. The photographer pulled me aside and talked to me about doing porn and how I would be awesome at it. I told him I would think about it but I needed more info. I requested that we meet for dinner or something and talk about it in detail. Unfortunately, he didn’t follow through.
About a week later I got contacted by another photographer, who’s work I really liked. He wanted to shoot me in his studio and I took him up on it. Turns out his studio is also where they film tons of porn here in Ft. Lauderdale. He was so nice and everyone I met there was really nice as well. We did some cool photos with clothes and without, and soft and hard (weiner that is). The shoot seemed to go really well and he seemed pleased. His partner came in and it turns out that he was the guy in charge of the porn part of the business. We sat and talked for a while and he talked to me about the porn business in a really comfortable way. I was interested. I really needed the money and it sounded like it could be fun. Even though I just met this guy, I felt like I could trust him. He said he would show my photos around and see who was interested. Cool!
The next day I got a call from him, asking me to come back in to his office and see the proofs from the shoot. They were really good. Funny, when I see photos of myself, it’s like looking at a different person. Is that really me? I usually giggle nervously. While I was looking through the images he told me he had shown them around and that Chi Chi Larue had loved them and wanted to use me in a BIG film she was doing in LA in a couple of weeks. Huh? (Insert Scooby Doo impression here).
Wow… that was amazing! And SCARY as HELL! I told him I was interested but really apprehensive and nervous about it. What if I messed up? What if I couldn’t “rise” to the occasion. What if…
He said, “When Chi Chi calls you, especially for your first film, you go.” It was an amazing opportunity. I told him let’s go for it.
Let’s go for it? Let’s go for what?! I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I found out more about the upcoming Chi Chi Larue movie. It was the latest edition of her very popular, very dirty, leathers series. It was going to be a VERY big production. Great… no pressure there.
I expressed my concerns at never having done this sort of thing before to the porn star manager guy and he was great at telling me what to expect and explaining how he would set me up on some smaller porn shoots first to help prepare me.
John Bruno, from Massive Studio was in town and he was interested in shooting me. So a couple of day’s later, there I was, nervous as hell and naked in front of a camera. They paired me up with a cute guy who was actually friends with my two best friends at the time. It was very strange and I honestly thought it went terrible! A year later, while I was surfing for porn, I noticed a box cover with someone who looked like me on it (See photo below). When I clicked on the link… it was me. I didn’t even know that they released the scene. I guess it wasn’t as bad as I thought. The funniest part is the look on my face. I look like a deer in headlights.
Right after that, Michael Lucas was in town filming. The porn agent had showed him my picture and he was interested. I had a fast and strange test interview with him (the highlight for me being: “OK, now turn around, bend over, spread your cheeks, and show me your hole”. Umm… “OK”.
Guess my hole passed inspection because the next day I filmed a scene with Trey Rexx for their “Auditions” series. I was just as nervous as the first time and even more so because I was working with Trey Rexx (a porn star who I actually liked) and Michael Lucas. Say what you want about him, Lucas is a porn legend. The filming went well and we even got to finish up with a watersports scene. Ya… I’m a dirty boy. The day ended with a laugh from me when Trey Rexx looked up at me in the shower, as I was getting ready to pee on him, and whispered, “Don’t pee in my hair.” I didn’t.
Afterwards, Michael Lucas, the camera man, Trey Rexx and I went out for dinner at a local restaurant. I had no experience with the porn industry, so I mostly just sat back and listened to the pros talk. I just kept thinking, “Am I really here?” The highlight of the evening for me, was when Michael Lucas was quoting major parts of the movie “Borat”, which had recently been released. He was hysterical! Smart, funny, sexy, ambitious and hard working… no wonder why he’s so successful.
Next up was my trip to Las Angeles to film with Chi Chi Larue.
