Tom Olah: How did you first get into
Jack Vidra: Years ago, I was discovered by Bruno Bond from Raging
Stallion. He found modeling
pictures of me and contacted me. While I wasn’t ready at the time, we
became friends. We were able
to meet a few times when he and his partner, Steve Cruz, came to
Chicago. Once I told them I was
ready, I quickly had a date scheduled to do my first scene.
TO: What was your first day on the
set like and who was your first scene partner?
JV: I was scheduled to bottom for Boomer Banks in a Raging Stallion
scene, directed by Steve Cruz. I
guess if I was going to do it, I was going to do it in a big way
[laughs]. Every one at Falcon Studios did
their best to make sure I had everything I needed and that I felt
comfortable. I was more worried about
looking stupid because I didn’t know about my blocking than I was about
TO: Where did you grow up?
JV: I grew up on a big farm in Delaware. We had livestock and crops and
grew a lot of our own food,
which began my love affair with food and the reason I became a chef.
TO: You have a really nice cock. When
did you realize you got a good one?
JV: I actually thought I was pretty small, comparatively, to
a childhood friend of mine who was really
hung. We used to play around together.
TO: Was the first person you had sex
with a boy or a girl? How old were you?
JV: Same childhood friend. I pretty much instigated everything, but he
went along with it. We started
fooling around naked when we were about 11. Swimming naked turned to
naked sleepovers turned to
masturbating together. Then I started giving him oral sex even before
the both of us were developed
enough to ejaculate. That was interesting when it finally happened, for
sure… [laughs]. Then I was
determined to get him inside me, and with a little pain and a little
Vaseline, I made it work. That was
when I was 13. He actually had sex with me twice before he developed
a conscience about it, and kindly
told me he didn’t feel comfortable doing it any more.
TO: What did your friends say when
they first heard you were doing porn?
JV: I entered the business at 32. Most of my friends and family are
fortunately sex positive and informed.
I think they knew I had the ability to still be myself. They all
thought it was interesting and exciting to
some extent. I’ve never had too many judgmental or negative
TO: What do you the biggest
misconception is that people about those who work in porn?
JV: That they think porn stars are damaged, mentally and
emotionally. or that we are looking for sex all
the time. I know some really grounded, intelligent people in this
business. Honestly, I think it has changed
me for the better. I am a very sexual person, but I’m really not
looking for empty validation.
TO: Do you have a fantasy porn star
that you want to film a scene with?
JV: I have a long list of people I’d like to work with. It’s been
pretty awesome to meet and have sex with
fantasy men, on and off camera [laughs].
TO: What is the most difficult
problem working in gay porn?
JV: The infighting between actors and studios. People create
drama where there is none. I like to think
that we all have something to bring to that table that makes us
special, and I have a compersion for my
fellow actors when they have success.
TO: What can we look forward to
seeing you in this year?
JV: I have a big movie that was filmed by Hot House with Chi Chi LaRue.
“A Night at the Ready” is about
a hotel bar where I am the resident bartender. I am the main character
and have dialogue in every scene.
There was great care put into cinematography and I had a lot of lines
to memorize. The movie ends with a
threesome with Johnny V, Dakota Rivers and I. We had great chemistry
and I think the movie will be really
TO: You will be performing at
Steamworks during Market Days. Who will you be working with?
JV: Rikk York. He and I have been able to hang out socially a few
times and I am really looking forward to
getting in his pants [laughs].
TO: Are live shows easier or harder
than filming on a set?
JV: Live shows are stressful because there is no ability to recover
from a mistake. But they take a fraction
of the time. Some porn shoots can last more than eight hours.
TO: Best way for your fans to keep up
with all things Jack Vidra?
JV: I put a lot of energy into Twitter, @JackVidra, and I also have
private videos that followers can subscribe to.
