Porn Star Interview: Caesar



BY VINCENT LAMBERT

In the world of porn, there’s always some fresh-faced cutie who blows into town and wants to rule the roost. Well, take note, guys, because there’s a hot new contender for the crown, and his name is Caesar. With his sultry good looks and perfect physique, the one-named wonder has made a big splash in a short time. Packing plenty of muscle on his 5-foot-10 frame, the 26-year-old Midwest native debuted last year in Studio 2000’s Cadet before headlining in Catalina’s Hail Caesar and Jocks’ Sprung. And the buff blond, who says he’s “part Scottish, part Cherokee Indian and a bit of Heinz 57,” recently completed Catalina’s Voyager, which was filmed aboard the Pillage & Plunder Cruise, and Falcon’s Bad Behavior. Speaking from his home in the Midwest, sexy Caesar talked about his latest films, his multiple tattoos and the body part that was once his favorite obsession (hint: it measures about eight inches).

So, the usual first question: How did you get your start?
Well, I started in a movie for Studio 2000 under the name Derek Michaels. I guess you could say I was in the hands of bad management before I met [director] Chi Chi LaRue. She took me and introduced me to Raul Rodriguez at JumpStart Casting and Production. He became my agent and took care of my business. Then I became known as Caesar.
How did you meet Chi Chi?
Well, I was working as a personal trainer. I had a strip group called Sugar and Spice, which is a three-man touring group that performs in clubs and bars. I met Chi Chi about two years ago at a club in the Midwest where I was dancing. She approached me and said she wanted me to be in a movie.
And what did you think?
I thought it was cool.
And what was the name of that first movie?
It was Cadet for Studio 2000.
What was it like doing that first scene?
It was pretty scary. I was nervous because of my living arrangements at the time. You know, living in the Midwest, being a porn star isn’t that accepted here. So I was worried about the repercussions.
Have you ever had any problems there because of your work?
Oh, sure. It’s one of the reasons I’m thinking of moving to San Francisco. I’ve been in fights here. But the fact is that I’m bigger and I always win (laughs). I’ve been in martial arts and the Marine Corps. You see, straight guys have a certain stereotype of what a gay man is—feminine and weak. But I don’t live up to that. I am who I am, and people just need to accept that.
When were you in the Marine Corps?
I got out in 1996. I was in for four years, doing all that military stuff.
So, what made you want to do porn?
I thought it would be fun. But once I got there on the set and it was time to actually do it, I started thinking of the reality (laughs). You know, that it’s not erasable. It will be there forever. But then I decided to do it. What could be a better job?
Who did you work with in that first scene?
I think I did it with Matt West.
What did you do in the scene?
I bottomed.
Was that a problem?
No, I was more nervous about the situation than about what I was doing.
No worries about the sex?
C: None (laughs).
How do you identity—as gay or straight?
Bisexual. Since I was young, I’ve fooled around with both guys and girls. Actually, boys were first.
How old were you?
Oh, about 12.
And what did you do?
Fucking. I was the top.
When did you start jerking off?
Oh, very young. After I discovered my penis, I was obsessed with it (laughs). I always liked my penis.
How big is your dick?
Honestly, I don’t know. I’ve never put a ruler to it. I would say about eight inches. It’s a bit better than average. By porn standards, though, it’s average (laughs).
Did you use any special technique for jerking off?
Anything I could stick my dick in, I did. I rubbed it on the bed. You know, typical teenager stuff.
So after Cadet, you did Hail Caesar, which was centered around you. Was that a daunting prospect?
I don’t think I understood the importance of it at the time. I didn’t think that people would like me (laughs). I never thought I’d end up on the cover of a magazine or a video. I was doing it to make money and have fun. I’ve gone further than I ever expected to.
Was it easier to do the second film with Chi Chi directing?
Yeah, it was more relaxed. It was still a little weird, but it was all good.
What is your favorite thing to do onscreen?
I like everything.
Do you have a favorite partner?
Well, I like Addison Scott and Marcus Iron. We just worked together in a movie for Falcon called Bad Behavior. We just connect. It’s not even physical; it’s more mental.
Do you have a certain type that turns you on?
I prefer athletic or built guys, my age or older. But most important, he must be in tune with himself and his sexuality. A lot of gay men aren’t that comfortable with being gay. That can be a problem.
Are there any fantasies that you’ve gotten to live out in your movies?
Well, in Bad Behavior, there’s a scene with multiple guys, and we use toys. That was a fantasy.
Is there anything you’d still like to do?
Being in a sling and getting fucked—actually from either point of view, getting fucked or fucking. I’d like to do that. I can get into both aspects—being dominant or being submissive.
Tell us about your tattoos. How many do you have?
I have five tattoos. I got them several years ago when I was in the service.
Did you always want them?
I always liked tattoos. I thought they were cool. Plus, when I left home, it was one of the rebellious things that I did.
How do your fans react to them?
I get mixed reaction from fans. Some like them, some don’t. I hear both. I do know that they limit my work. People think of me as being more of a thug or more street because of them. But I think I can do a lot of different things. People who don’t know you tend to categorize.
You also have some piercings.
I have four body piercings, but I recently took them out. I got tired of them. My tongue is still pierced, though. I still like that.
Is it true that tongue piercing enhances certain sexual activities?
They’re definitely sexual (laughs).
You have such an amazing body. You must work out constantly.
I work out about five days a week. It’s hard when I travel so much, but it’s fun. I enjoy it. And the better shape I’m in, the more work I get. I used to compete as a bodybuilder. I even won a couple of competitions.
Do you follow a special diet?
I eat a high-protein diet, but I do eat junk food occasionally.
Really? What is your favorite junk food?
Chocolate-chip cookies (laughs). The soft kind. But then I do a lot of cardio when I go on an eating binge!
What do you think is your best movie?
Well, I had a lot of fun making Sprung. I liked the people a lot. I think my movies keep getting better the more I do.
Did you ever watch porn before you got into the industry?
As much as I could (laughs)—both gay and straight.
Did you watch and think, “I could do that”?
Yeah, I did think that. It was always in the back of my head.
Do you ever watch your own movies now?
Yeah, I do, and I can see myself improving. I’m my own worst critic. I see everything that’s wrong. It is a little weird to watch yourself, though.
What is the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done sexually?
Probably having major orgy sex in a bathhouse. Safe, of course. That was fun.
VL: What image do you think your fans have of you?
I never thought they had any until now (laughs). I’d like them to think that I’m down-to-earth and easygoing. And they shouldn’t be afraid to talk to me in a club.
Where do you see yourself going in the industry?
I’d like to go as far as I can. I didn’t start out to be a superstar. I’m along for the ride, having fun and meeting people. Just having a good time. When I’m done with the industry, I’d like to open my own gym. I still do personal training when I have the time, but with my personal appearances and making movies, it’s hard right now.
And you have your own Web site, of course.
Yes, www.caesarworld.com. If people join, they get a newsletter, lots of nude pictures, my touring schedule, my workout, my diet, some penetration shots from my films, and I will be offering a special jack-off video for members only.
Are you surprised that you’ve been so successful?
Surprised and happy. I know I’m getting a lot of attention. I accept it, but I didn’t expect it (laughs). And I do like it. Who wouldn’t? I guess I’ll just enjoy it while it lasts.
