Tom Olah: How did you first get into porn?
Seth Santoro: My husband and I would post our sex vids to Twitter. I
how we started doing that though. At any rate, we got a sizable
following, and soon after,
I was approached by studios. Billy was doing a webcam interview with
and I was spotted in the background and was invited to be a model as
well. I was intentionally
trying to get attention too.
TO: What was your first day on the set like and who was your first
SS: I was extremely nervous. I had only been to New York City once
before with my parents,
and I was working with a studio that I knew put out amazing work. There
was a lot of pressure
to not get lost and to also turn it out and impress the fuck out of the
studio. I was worried about
looking good. Was my hair just right, praying to god that my douche was
good, lots of pressure.
I met Valentin Petrov when I arrived on set, and he was just as quiet
as I was. Back then I was
really shy, so I don’t think I even bothered with small talk. The
director threw me in wardrobe
and put me to work right away. It was a suit scene and I was the new
intern who had to impress
the boss (ironic). I’m fairly sure you could see the fear in my eyes at
the start b making ut once
Valentin and I started out, all my barriers went down. We still didn’t
chat a lot but in between
takes we were definitely still kissing and playing around with each
other. It ended up being a
really hot scene. To this day, people come up to me and tell me it’s
one of their favorites.
TO: Was the first person you ever had sex with a boy or a girl?
SS: A boy, with nine inches and a Prince Albert. I guess if there’s a
moment to find out if you
like to bottom, that was it. I have never had sex with a girl. “I did
not have sexual relations
with that woman.”
TO: What did your friends say when you first got into porn?
SS: My friends were actually pretty supportive of it. But I guess I’ve
always pushed the boundaries
with them throughout our relationship.
TO: Do you have a fantasy porn star you still want to work with?
SS: I have an ever-growing list of guys I’d like to get in front of the
camera with (or even off-camera).
Though Rocco Steele and I have kind of been talking about working
together soon [smiles].
TO: What do you think is the biggest misconceptions people have about
people who do porn?
SS: I think people all too readily box porn stars into their version of
their fantasies, or into the roles
that people have seen in their films. What I do on camera is certainly
a facet of my sexuality and
who I am, but that’s only a small part of the bigger picture. People
end up fairly surprised at how
much more there is to performers behind the scenes.
TO: What do you think is the best part of appearing in porn?
SS: Getting to meet tons of fantastic casts and crews, traveling to
pretty awesome places, having
some of the hottest sex out there. Isn’t everyone’s goal to make money
at what they love doing?
TO: I recently saw you in the movie Scared Stiff, so I have to ask,
when Chi Chi LaRue calls you
up and says I have this script by the legendary Jackie Beat, what do
SS: To be honest, I was speechless. Chi Chi and I have known each other
for a few years and there
has always been the desire to work together with this amazing director.
Being invited to be a part of
project that is a lot bigger and more complex than your typical porn is
such a rare opportunity. I said
yes right away and immediately made plans to make sure I would be ready
for that shoot.
TO: Your scene partner is the sexy Jack Hunter, and you have sex in and
around a truck. Have you
ever had sex in a truck in real life?
SS: Yes! Doing the scene with Jack was pretty easy since he’s extremely
sexy, and we had everything
choreographed in advance. Fucking in a truck in real life for me was a
spontaneous adrenaline rush –
trying to be sexy and discreet at the same time.
TO: Was this a fun movie to make?
SS: Definitely. I would have hardly considered it work if I hadn’t
gotten a paycheck out of it. All
the cast and crew are really fun to hang out with on and off set. The
location we filmed at – Naughty
Pines – was amazing. It was fun acting and fucking with the other guys.
TO: What can we look forward to see you in this year?
SS: I have several scenes from Falcon Studios coming out: Scared Stiff
and Pitching Tents most recently
released. Into the Blue has yet to be released, and there’s another
surprise scene that I can’t talk about.
Also, keep an eye out for my scenes with Gayroom.
TO: Best way to keep up with all things Seth Santoro?
SS: The best way to follow me is on Twitter, @sethsantoroxxx. All my
latest shenanigans are posted
there for the world to see.
