ManCrush: Alessio Vega
We caught up with Alessio Vega to talk careers, exhibitionism, and underwear.
What led you to start exploring a career in porn?
I’ve always been fascinated with porn. Like most gay guys, I had a fantasy about doing it.
I’m a total exhibitionist. I’d always be naked, if I could.
There were many factors that led me to giving porn a try, but the main thing that pushed me to do it was when I found out that my mom got diagnosed with breast cancer. Long story short, I knew I had to do something to help and contribute – at that moment, porn was the answer.
Porn has given me the exposure I needed to be able to do my own private videos. I can now reach out to more fans who want to subscribe to see my content.
Who are some of your porn heroes or inspirations?
Rebecca More and Sophie Anderson – The cock destroyers! I admire them and they inspire me – mostly to be myself.
Do you enjoy the entrepreneurial side of building a career in porn?
I see the potential, and it’s quite rewarding when your fans enjoy your content, but it’s a full-time job.
Creating content and keeping up with all of the social media and the marketing requires a lot of attention. Like most porn actors, I also have other jobs in order to make a living. At times, it can be difficult to keep up with everything, but all I can do is my best.
Can we talk underwear?
Thongs all the way!
Don’t get me wrong, I love jockstraps, but they’re over-rated. Browse through any porn video and you’ll see everyone wearing jockstraps, but absolutely no thongs. Thongs are so under-represented in gay porn. To me, there’s nothing more beautiful than a man with a nice ass in a thong – oh, to be that string in between those cheeks.
What are some of your goals and aspirations for the months ahead?
My theory is – don’t push it, whatever happens will happen organically. I want to keep working, I do it out of pleasure now rather than as a necessity. I’d love to leave my mark in the porn world. I want to keep collaborating with everyone I can, and just have a good time along the way.
