Porn Star Interview: Carlo Masi & Adam Champ



BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Whatever differences porn star couple Carlo Masi and Adam Champ had with COLT have obviously been ironed out. The bodybuilding duo, who have appeared in films such as the beautiful Hawaii and Naked Muscles: The New Breed, recently reupped with the studio. They also took some time to catch up with VincentLambert.com about their relationship, home life and what drives the other crazy.

Congrats on the new contract, guys. Why did you end up re-signing with COLT?
Carlo Masi: More than any other studio, COLT represents me. After so many years, I am synonymous with COLT. Our images are so intimately joined that it was impossible for me to get myself a new image!
Adam Champ: Colt is a big family where every member is very important, but like in any other family, there are fights sometimes and discussions. Colt, Carlo and I realized we were made to be together so, we decided to re-sign.

How long have you each been working in the industry and how did you get your start?
CM: [COLT talent coordinator] Manfred Speer saw my profile on a gay Web site in 2003 and contacted me. A few months later, I was in San Francisco shooting my first movie for COLT. It was a big success and I have remained with COLT since than.
AC: Manfred contacted me in 2003 too, but I finally accepted his proposal to become a Colt Man in 2006. It was a wonderful experience, and I have no regrets. Actually I started by dancing at the Gaiety theater in New York City, but that was a long, long time ago! [laughs]

How did you meet and become a couple?
CM: We met during the shooting of Waterbucks 2. That was Adam’s first movie. The first time I saw him he was walking toward the camera totally unaware I was looking at him. I fell in love at once; he was so beautiful. At the beginning, he gave me an attitude and I was furious. I already was in porn for years, so I wanted to give him an attitude! [laughs]
AC: Yes, I was totally ignoring Carlo. It was funny seeing him get upset because I was not into him. After this production, we kept in contact and then decided to try being more than friends. We are together for two years now.

Do you enjoy working with each other? Or is it better to work with a model you’re not married to?
CM: I love working with Adam, and so far Waterbucks 2 is my favorite scene. At the end of the day we shot it, we decided to date. But I must admit on the other hand, I was very nervous and it was definitely not easy being involved with the model I was working with.
AC: Of course I really love working with Carlo. In fact, we always are together and enjoy every minute when we are performing together. I have a nice relationship with my colleagues at the company, but we are not close friends.

What are the benefits of being a couple in the porn industry? And what are the downsides, if any?
CM: We take care and support each other. We know how the other feels in each occasion as we are doing the same job. Plus we share the work. While one is answering an interview the other writes an e-mail to the promoter of a disco to finalize the agreement for a live event, for example. The bad part is that we are both jealous and we make the other’s life hell every time we shoot a scene.

What is your life like outside the business?
CM: Our life is very quiet. We are both lazy (Adam is lazier), we like to stay home, eat, watch a movie and have hard sex. We like opera, but we don't have the time (or money) to go a lot. We live in both Rome and San Francisco, but we travel and visit many new countries.

How do you stay in such great shape? Are you both Italian? Don’t you eat pasta!?
CM: I am Italian. Adam is Argentine. We love pasta and we get in shape when we have an important event—a movie, a photo shoot or a live appearance—but usually we eat a lot and we do not care for abs. I like my man a little beefy. Adam is so hot anyway.
AC: I am from Argentina. I am Evita Peron’s lost son! [laughs] Carlo has a gorgeous body, but he is a little lazy at workouts. I always have to drag him to the gym.

What has been your experience with your fans?
CM: Well, it was a very good experience at the beginning, but I must say that sometimes they are tough. They know everything you do and say, and they die for judging.
AC: They are not all alike; there are many who are supportive and whose love make us wish to keep working forever. But there are others who persecute you on every blog, forum, e-mail. Sometime it is stressful to see people talking so much about you. But I guess this is part of the game.
