Johnny Kingdom

THEGAYUK’s Matt Peake spoke to porn star Jonny Kingdom about what it’s like to work in the porn industry.

MP: How many auditions did you have to go through before you got your first job?
JK: I was very lucky as I didn’t have to do too many auditions as one of my friends was a director for the company Blake Mason. They were the first company I had ever shot with I did a solo and then a duo with Luke Desmond I knew them so was quite easy and relax and I loved the whole experience. But if you were thinking of getting into porn it’s something I would definitely think about and rethink. Once it’s out there it’s up there.

MP: Have you told your family?
JK: Yes it was something I knew I would have to tell them as I knew if I was going to do it well I was going to try to be the best at it. My family has always been very supportive and I’m very lucky to have them and obversely all my friends know this is the gay world! In 2013 Drilled won the best DVD at the porn awards it was a big night and all my friends were with me I’m very lucky.

MP: Is it hard to find romantic partners as sex is such an intimate part of the human experience?
JK: Every relationship needs sex. Porn is a lot different to being in a relationship and having sex with a partner when you haven’t got a whole camera crew they’re going can’t get hard!

MP: Are there things you’ve learnt doing porn that you’ve included in your personal life? Do partners expect you to be ‘experts’ of sex?
JK: I hope I’ve learned a lot as it’s my job but relationships are different and no not when they’re dating you they get to know you so they don’t expect anything but I would hope I please them.

MP: Do you ever bottom? Do bottoms really get paid more than tops?
JK: I mainly am. Most of us are self- employed and model fees are different for everyone. But yes I do get paid more for being a bottom than a top!

MP: Do you sleep with your fans?
JK: MAYBE!

MP: What would you say to people who want to get into porn?
JK: Think about it. It is a great lifestyle. Next month I’m off to Prague for three days all-expenses-paid for it. It’s a great career as long as you pick the right companies and don’t get led astray.

MP: What do you think is the future of porn?
JK: Porn will never go away. The best thing about porn is I do get to travel I’ve been to America, Berlin, Prague, Amsterdam.

MP: What’s the average day of a porn star?
JK: The average day is up bright and early at the gym and normally you’re on set from nine in the morning and it can go on till about 7-8 at night.

MP: After all the sex and fame and thrill… what’s next?
JK: Eventually the dream would be to have my very own modelling agency. Although I’m really starting to get into directing and soon maybe directing my own shoot so look out!

MP: Who has been your favourite scene partner and why?
JK: It would have to be Austin Wilde Good Morning. It was filmed in an American hotel and he is a guy I very much fancy. I loved it and I do think is one of my best. You can see it at guysinsweatpants.com.

MP: What’s the average salary per scene/per film?
JK: They are all different but normally start around £300 and work their way up.

MP: What are your opinions on porn?
JK: I love it and keep watching!
