Is it hard to work in the porn industry?

Yes and no.

Yes, It’s pretty hard to just break into the industry and keep some longevity. It doesn’t happen by itself especially given someone one like me who’s not exactly your typical porn performer. I’ve worked long and hard to get where I am now. I still need to promote myself at every turn and to make sure that I’m hopefully providing what my fans want to see.

No, it’s a job I enjoy…my advocation and vocation are now one and the same and thats truly what you want in any job/career you take on.

Porn stars say these days that the porn industry does not pay well. Is it true? Has the economic recession affected porn too?

It doesn’t pay well at all. Only a couple studios have a decent pay scale. I usually use it for promotional purposes. It’s partially the economy and largely the internet itself. So much “free porn“ is available… barely anyone pays for it anymore. But theres a catch 22 here, everyone wants new content but no one wants to pay for it. Well how do you thing the people who bring it to you will get payed? That includes everyone from, performers, directors, cameraman, web designers and producers. The economy hasn’t been a help either. Many boys who would never have considered doing porn now do it because they can have a few bucks to line their pockets. So more performers means more competition for very few jobs that don’t pay well.

What has been the biggest challenge in your career so far?

There are a few.

As with everything there is a self life. Transitioning from porn to mainstream acting will have it’s own problem and hurdles, but i feel it can be done.

It’s also a double edged sword…on the one hand I love my fans and i’m so glad that they enjoy what I do. When they hit me up i’m always polite and say thank you. But on the other I have guys that might hit me up on some site or app and think I owe it to them to sleep with them. It’s really a mind blower.

Do you like to watch your own porn? Does it turn you on?

Nope. I don’t want to see them. I’ll view it very differently then anyone else and I think it would be detrimental to my next performance because i’ll want to correct what I feel is wrong with a particular scene. I’ll get in my head and thats not where you want to be when having sex on camera or sex in general

How easy is to have a hard-on for so many hours when performing for a movie?

It’s not easy at all for any performer no matter what enhancement you are taking all of them last only for so long.

Do you remember how you felt in your first porn movie?

Yes, a bit nervous but i had this beautiful black boy to work with that got my juices going so that helped immensely.

What makes a good porn actor?

Besides having a hard dick on camera and ejaculating rather quickly when asked too. It’s the willingness and easy to work with any other performer on a scene. Trust me there have been boys who personally I would never have worked with, but you would never know it.

Who is your favourite porn actor?

I really hate answering this question…it’s like asking me what my favorite color is …i just can’t choose. My moods and tastes fluctuate all the time. So, i’m going to leave you guessing on this one 🙂

Do you enjoy having sex when performing in front of the camera or you approach sex as part of your work?

Of course its work but most of the time I really do enjoy it. There have been a few incidents where it’s been more of a challenge because of either circumstances or my scene partner.

What has been the most awkward moment you experienced in your career?

There was a scene I was suppose to shoot with Iconmale. Leading up to the shoot I had had some much sex that my dick was in fact tired. It flat out would not respond no matter what. I thought I would never get hard again but thankfully all I needed was rest…poor guy he works hard for the money. I had to go back and reshoot the scene. Thankfully, I had been working with them so many times that they understood. If that would have been my first shoot with them I would never had been asked back again.

What is your type in men?

I like guys… natural men and boys. I certainly do love my black and latinos. I like men who really enjoy sex and enjoy getting piggy. The things I don’t want are prissy, overly groomed (tweezed eyebrows, stubbly chest hair, etc) , smelling of cologne. If I wanted a girl I would go fuck one.

How do men approach you?

lol..let us count the ways. Seriously, though I think it’s just like most guys get approached. I’m contacted mostly on apps and/or hook up sites. I find it interesting they will ask for more pics well knowing who I am. In person some will come up and want a picture with me which is very flattering. I do have a wonderful beautiful boyfriend named Joe Carrier. He’s my world.

How do you feel knowing that people fantasise having sex with you and masturbate? Isn’t that a big honour?

I have to say not only is it an honor but I’m also just flattered and amazed that anyone would want too. I know that may sound strange coming from me but it’s true. I’m just so thankful that I can fulfil someones fantasy.

Are you in love at the moment?

YES,YES,YES!!! with my lovely wonderful, sexy as hell, cuddle bunny, Joe Carrier. He’s just so incredible and not in my industry. He’s a professional dancer and trainer in Los Angeles. We live together in Beverly Hills (no I don’t own a mansion…at least not yet..:) He’s my soulmate.

How did your parents react when they learnt that you are a porn actor?

I have a saying ..”unless you are paying my bills then I don’t want to hear your remarks about what I do” …that being said…no one seems to mind…I talk to all of them ..see them on vacations etc. I’m very blessed to have the family and friends in my life that I do

If your partner asked you to stop doing porn, how would you react?

I would give him puppy dog eyes..lol. Seriously, nothing is forever. I don’t plan on doing this as a retirement plan. Work always comes first…rent, food on the table must be provided ..he understands that….the hardest thing for either one of us is all the traveling I do.

Do you have sex with women too?

Oh the dreaded question….I think I just heard a dog howl.

I hate answering this question because I wind up getting so much hate mail from it.

The question is yes, but i don’t seek it out if that makes any sense. It’s not like i’m picking up girl in bars..I’m certainly not. I live with my boyfriend and I’m very happy. I do have the occasional gay fuck buddy.

How easy is it to maintain a relationship when working as a porn actor? Is your partner jealous?

He totally understands what I do and why. He loves that I’m adam russo. No person should be jealous in a relationship. Jealousy causes pain…There is a saying that I truly believe in. “If  You Love Somebody Set Them Free”

Do you believe in open relationships?

Yes, I do. Joe is exploring it now too…and understanding now that sex can just be that…sex!

You are very artistic and seem to be a person with many interests. What are your hobbies?

I have done many things in the creative visual arts including fashion, interior and product design. I’m also a fine artist and was represented in a gallery in San Francisco for many years. I workout quite a bit. Love the movies hanging with friends and of course traveling. When you travel you get to understand more of the world around you. I will also pick up the visual arts again…all in time.

What is your last thought before you go to bed?

Oh lord…The state of the world today is not good..not to say it’s been bliss before but it’s getting harder and harder to find food that isn’t GMO, water thats not fluoridated, cameras everywhere..hello big brother. This and many issues can keep me up at night. I have a mantra which I say to myself to calm me. It is “Love, Light and Joy” This mantra repeated usually calms me down and clears my head . We all have to remember we can make a difference in our world.

What makes you happy?

Joe, Sunlight, listening to music, being with friends & family, good food., beauty in all it’s forms..creativity!

What are your dreams for the future?

World peace …TRUELY!!

Personally to star in mainstream features for TV and movies to continue my visual arts and all this with Joe and my friends and family by my side.

What are you working on right now? Do you want to reveal your plans for the due course?

I have been presented with offers to move into mainstream acting…if anyone is reading this now and thinks they have a part that would be perfect for me then contact me please.

How is a typical day of Adam?

I lay in bed usually with my phone and laptop getting work done… sometimes I don’t have breakfast until very late which of course I shouldn’t. It usually is clients, filming and gym time. I enjoy myself though…I take time to see friends take a look in a gallery..walk down the street and just breathe in life.

If you could change something on you, what would it be?

On me? hmmm. I wouldn’t change a thing…not to say i’m perfect ..i’m not ..no one is…but as India Arie put it…”I’m liking what I see”

Tell us a secret!

No …then it’s no longer a secret.

Tell me something that you cannot resist to.

A delicious glass of wine, a back rub, staying in bed way before I should, a beautiful man, a toasted crumpet with marscapone, cinnamon and wild honey and kisses from Joe

In Greece you are beyond famous. Do you want to send a message to your Greek fans?

Really? I had no idea. I have yet to visit your beautiful country and will do so soon. I just want to say thank you so much!!! I love you …big kiss!!!!
