AB: Can you share any anecdotes from one of your shoots? Anything that sticks out?
JH: Oh, I had a guy come over from OSU once to do a shoot and he had a girlfriend waiting outside and didn’t tell her that he was coming up to do porn. He came up, did a little jerk-off thing, got his money and left. I did another scene where I had – I was shooting actually in my garage here – and I picked up a model, I brought him on set and he was drugged out. He ended up passing out and I ended up having to call the ambulance. The police came, so I – I obviously am not working with that model again. We didn’t get any footage, but it was an experience.
AB: What about the drugs in the industry?
JH: Well, the first thing I would recommend for anyone getting into this business: stay the hell away from crystal meth. I can’t emphasize that enough. We’re gay guys – we don’t have kids, we don’t have things in our lives that drive us. It’s one thing to go out and have the occasional good time and party it up. I think that certain drugs in this business, you have to be careful. I’m not advocating drug use or saying they’re good or bad – I’m just saying crystal meth: you’re going to get yourself into a really bad crowd. It promotes highly unsafe sex and that’s something that you don’t want to get into.
AB: In the Ohio State Lantern article, it says you don’t take people who are only in it for the money. So, the straight guys who do solo scenes, what’s they’re motivation? What do they get out of this?
JH: I said that when a model comes to me and they say, “I don’t want to do this, but I need the money,” I say, “Well, don’t do it.” I don’t want you to come back to me and say you have a situation in your life with these videos are up on the site and you’re trying to get into business. I don’t want that. I’m trying to run a business. So, that’s why I say that.
AB: What happens when somebody comes and they want to have their video taken down?
JH: Like I said, I run a business and I’m willing to listen to any offer and do a cost analysis and if it benefits me, then I’ll do it, absolutely.
