Tea Time with Porn Star Kennedy Carter
There was a whole lot of shaking going on this weekend in New York City and some of that bump and grind was brought on courtesy of UK born, adult entertainment sensation, the dashingly charming Kennedy Carter. He's made his mark featured in Raging Stallion Studios hits like Golden Gate and Night Maneuvers, an the ubiquitously entitled Don't Ask, Just F**k. And with his sly British grin and slim, chiseled physique it's easy to imagine how Kennedy Carter has made his way into some of his fan's raunchiest fantasies.
I caught up with the star for a little Q&A, just as he trekked on back to his home in London, from just wrapping up a weekend of entertaining the masses at a packed NYC night spot that was very sexy sexy on Friday night.
JC: How did you land a gig in the adult entertainment industry? Were you discovered? Was it something that you pursued?
Kennedy Carter: I sent off my photos or filled in the online application form for every studio I could think of, and was lucky that nearly all of them responded.
JC: What was your first day at work like? Was it something that came naturally, or were you at all gun shy?
KC: No I have always been a real exhibitionist so getting naked in front of other people was never difficult for me. It was a small crew and another guy who was making his first movie, which stopped it from being intimidating.
JC: How do you prepare for a busy day on the set? Do you have any (sexual) rituals that you adhere to or do you spend an extra day pumping up at the gym?
KC: No, I'm at the gym every day anyway, so just plenty of sleep and water.
Behind the Scenes, Under the Sheets...
JC: It’s not uncommon for a performer in porn these days to be gay-for-pay. Are you straight, bi, gay? And does that affect how you perform - for example - if you are gay, do you only prefer to team up with other gay actors, or does it matter at all?
KC: I’m totally gay, and I personally would prefer to only have sex with other gay actors. I want to be having sex with someone who really enjoys it.
JC: How would you describe yourself? You’re incredibly charming and natural looking with a sexily slim gorgeous build, but with all those tattoos (grrrr) you’ve certainly got an edge!
KC: I guess I would describe myself as a little slimmer and less built than most porn actors, but still a great performer.
JC: I would agree...you’re very charismatic and know how to work the crowd...it’s very sweet and sexy.
JC: How long have you been working in porn? How many films have you been featured in?
KC: In the year or so I have been doing porn I have made about 30 scenes, including web stuff.
JC: What studios have you aligned yourself with. How do the studios differ?
KC: They all differ in terms of their production values, the aesthetic of the guys they use and so on. I have done most of my work with Raging Stallion, as I am one of their exclusive performers.
JC: Have you ever fallen for one of your co-stars? I’m sure it’s a risk of the business.
KC: I did date another porn actor once, but it was pretty casual.
JC: Do you have a particular "type" that you prefer to work with? A particular (sexual) position that just comes naturally?
KC: I am very versatile so enjoy fucking and getting fucked. I guess my dream co-star would be Latin, in his 30s, tattooed, bearded, muscled, and with a big dick and a nice ass.
JC: Hmmm...Sounds like I may have a chance at catching your eye. (Long pause) Don’t laugh at me...a boy can dream (insert heavy sign). Is it difficult to settle down or date working in the adult industry?
KC: Yes, it is definitely something that a lot of people find hard to accommodate in somebody they are having a relationship with. But I meet guys all the time that are unfazed by the situation too.
Kennedy Carter Revealed!
JC: Does anyone in your family know that you are working in porn? How do they feel about it?
KC: All of my family knows and they are totally cool with it. My mum was obviously concerned at first but she told me that as long as I was happy, and being looked after, she was happy too. My brother just thinks it’s funny anyone thinks I’m a sex symbol of any kind, I’m just the tubby little ginger toddler in his mind still.
JC: Tubby, ginger toddler - I doubt he would have thought so had he caught your fans regaling you this past weekend! Was there anytime when you just weren’t down for what the director may have had in mind?
KC: The work I have done has always been pretty vanilla, and the content of the scene is normally discussed before we are on set so we have a chance to say what we are comfortable with.
JC: That’s good to know - on the outside I don’t think we would have imagined that a porn set would be so considerate with its performers. Everyone is going to want to know who was the hottest partner you’ve ever been paired with on screen. Tell me who that was, and what it was like? Why was it so hot?
KC: All of my partners have been hot for different reasons. Wilfried Knight for being so goofy and relaxed, Kyle King for being so sweet and down to earth, Tim Kruger for his insanely huge penis :P
JC: (Laughing) Yes...I think we can all relate - or would like to. Wilfried Knight is beyond dreamy...but "goofy"? (More laughing) To know him is to love him! Is there anyone that you haven’t worked with that you are looking forward to teaming up with?
KC: I have had a crush on Robert Axel for a while now, also Donny Wright and Dario Beck.
JC: Well...if they didn’t know before, they know now. Sorry for spilling the beans, mate. If you weren’t working in the adult entertainment industry what would you be doing? Have you aspirations to move on to something else - the industry is always changing. There must be a realistic shelf life for the popularity of a porn actor.
KC: I’m at college doing a degree in Hispanic Studies. I have a year in Mexico coming up then hopefully after I graduate I will come to the US to do a masters in Latin American history. I would love to get my PhD, work in a university teaching, writing books, and generally being a bit of a nerd.
JC: I’m sure that your job has afforded you the luxury of traveling all over the world? Do you have a favorite city in particular and why?
KC: I love San Francisco because I have spent so much time there and have many great friends there...like the awesome guys at Naked Sword (the adult entertainment studio). But I have really fallen for New York in a crazy way.
JC: After the reception you got on Friday night, I don’t blame you! I think the feeling is mutual. So you’ll be back in NYC in April - Where will you be performing? Is it a brief visit or will you be indulging yourself in our fair city?
KC: I’m going to be doing an appearance at DiLF @ G Lounge, and I’m sure the Cock will persuade me to go-go dance again!
JC: Well I’m sure that all of NYC is already busily switching around its scheduling (I really love the way Brits say that word) to accommodate your return to the Big Apple. We look forward to catching more of you on your return!
