PHOTOS: Kaylan Morgan Gives 2(x)ist A Taste Of Speed



PHOTOS: We recently spotlighted a photo series of model Kaylan Morgan, the new face of Gaultier’s cologne Le Beau Male. Well, the New York looker is also starring in the most recent campaign for 2(X)ist’s swimwear line, Speed. Our friends at The Underwear Expert chatted Morgan up about his Mustang, the brotherly love that got him scouted, and the difference between modeling for a fragrance and swimsuits.

For the unabridged Kaylan Morgan interview head over to The Underwear Expert.

The Underwear Expert: I read that you race Mustangs.

Kaylan Morgan: Yeah, actually I do. I still have a Mustang Cobra. I started off with a Trans-Am. It was my first car. I was fifteen and I got an ’89 Trans-Am GTA and I started from there. I built three or four Trans-Ams and moved on to Mustangs and started racing–I still have one just for keeps. I haven’t raced in a while.

UE: Could you talk about how you were scouted? Some sites have said you were scouted during a construction job.

KM: That’s not entirely true to be honest with you. I’ve done every type of construction there is from driving 18-wheelers to building houses to being the foreman. Everything. I moved up to California after Katrina. My brother models–he begged me to model. He had it set up with the scouts at his agency. One day he tricked me into coming to the agency. He was like, “hey, why don’t you come out to San Francisco.” So I go to San Francisco and next thing you know he pulls up in front of the agency and they’re sitting there waiting for me! Two days later I was on the front cover of a magazine that pays a couple grand and I was like “alright, we’ll see what happens.” So far, it’s been good. I don’t know where that whole construction thing came from.

UE: Let’s talk about modeling. You’ve done a lot of different shoots including campaigns for perfume and for underwear. Could you talk about the differences between shooting a perfume ad and an underwear ad?

Kaylan: Well when you’re modeling for a fragrance, it just feels high-end. You walk in there with a different attitude. You’ve just gotta impress, you gotta be confident. You gotta out-perform anybody that’s there, including all the expectations you have for yourself. I dunno though, I guess I go in with the same mindset for every job.

The 2xist campaign – the last underwear one I did – was, of course, all body.  So you go into it thinking to yourself, “body, body, body, body” to make sure you’re on point with everything.

      OK. We got it… Some of you prefer hairy guys. But to say that real men have body hair is bogus. And do you must comment each time that you see a smooth guy? Everyone has his own taste of men. Yes, there are people like me who prefer smooth men.

      What cracks me up about comments like “nice body but where’s the hair” is that the vast majority of us, myself included, have zero chance of coming (pardon the pun) anywhere near that chest, hairy or smooth.

      But a girl can dream.

      Get him a cheeseburger and some body hair… why? He’s too skinny and smooth?

      Thanks for perpetuating the stereotype that weight and grooming are the main determining factors to whether someone is ‘sexually appealing’ or not. It’s called “advertising” isn’t not your favorites list on Grindr.
