News Exclusive: Johnny Hanson on His BB Debut


STORY AND PHOTO BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Porn star Johnny Hanson has made the switch to bareback films. In an exclusive interview with VincentLambert.com, Hanson, a onetime Falcon exclusive who recently made a comeback for Lucas Entertainment, admits that he recently shot a scene without using condoms. “Damn, word gets out fast!” he says. “Yes, it’s true I did a BB movie.”

In an interview earlier this year, Hanson, when asked about the rising popularity of barebacking in gay porn, told us, “I think that is just stupid. It’s not too smart and way too risky.”

So why the sudden change of heart? “I was paid the top dollar I asked for,” Hanson says, “and I figured being the top wasn’t too much of a health risk.”

But is the 42-year-old model concerned about the reaction of longtime fans to his decision to go raw? “People were in shock and angry when I did my first porno movie,” Hanson says. “My skin has gotten thicker since then, so I could care less what people think—just enjoy my performance, that’s all I hope for.”

Hanson first made a splash in the 1990s, posing for Playgirl, appearing off-Broadway in Making Porn and starring in such films as The Other Side of Aspen III, Download and Hot Firemen. This year he returned to the industry for director Michael Lucas (above left with Hanson) in The Bigger The Better, but not on an exclusive basis. “Lucas had been after me for six years to do a scene for him,” Hanson says. “He never had plans on making me an exclusive. That was understood from Day One, and it was fine with me. I prefer to work for different companies that are willing to pay me what I demand.”

VincentLambert.com contacted Lucas, president and CEO of Lucas Entertainment, for this story. He said he was not aware that Hanson had filmed a bareback scene but declined further comment.

Hanson’s condom-free debut won’t be released until next month, but for now he seems at peace with his choice. “We can’t make everyone in the world happy,” he says. “I live my life to make me happy first and not worry what people think or say.”

That’s what happens when none of the other major studios will hire you. You end up having to stoop to doing bareback to get work. Kind of like what happened to Jeff Palmer. Instead of knowing when to quit, they are so starved for the limelight they resort to doing bareback.

I remember reading a story about Hanson years ago in which he said he was POZ. Hope his partner was, as well.

He's not fooling anyone trying to pass as negative. Not with the way his face looks. That's not just father time working against him. It's also deterioration from medications for hiv.

I cannot take credit for that word. "Shiteous" and "fugly" are from perezhilton.com !

First of all, how can a person be so against the idea of not using protection, then suddenly say that he's changed his mind just because he CLAIMS that he was paid 'top dollar'????

And then to add further insult to injury by making an incredibly stupid, hapless comment like, since he's a top, there's less risk involved???????

Well, I USED to like this guy, but after reading these stupid and utterly shallow remarks, it looks like I have one less person to admire. Obviously this man is not a college graduate. I have ZERO respect for someone who has so little regard for himself to the point that he insults the intelligence of others.

And yes, his picture is VERY bad. It literally took me several minutes to figure out that that was even him. It wasn't until I recognised the shape of LUCAS' head that I realised that it was Michael LUCAS behind those glasses and not HANSON.

Well he's forty something and if not using condom this time is not a big concern to him. Get big buck into his pocket is a big concern.
