ManCrush: Avatar Akyia
We caught up with Avatar Akyia for a behind-the-scenes look at his online life.
What led you to start exploring a career in porn?
I’ve always enjoyed the art of sex. Gay porn to me is an art-form, something that connects to beings together and creates a fantasy to allow others to escape from their normal lives, worries, and self-inhibitions.
Would you describe yourself as an exhibitionist?
Yes – I feel that I react to the original design of human nature, which is to be free and to love the skin that you’re in.
I like to show my sexiness – not for others, but for myself, to please my inner-me.
Who are some of your porn heroes or inspirations?
My inspirations are my fellow brothers and sisters of porn.
Such as Rebecca More who’s driven, hard-working, and absolutely stunning.
Also, Rhyheim Shabazz, who’s blowing up the gay porn scene but takes the time to help push me to be a better performer.
Plus, my best friend, Max Konnor, who’s been the back-bone and inspiration of building my brand of Avatar.
What’s your ultimate porn fantasy?
To be in an epic porn scene that’s properly scripted, with an all-black cast, and so full of passion, chemistry, and hot sex that it will be forever remembered.
Can we talk underwear?
I love a hot pair of underwear that fits the body.
In the gym, I tend to wear boxer-briefs or a jockstrap – old football habits.
On a normal day-to-day, I try to match sexy undies to whatever I’m wearing – you never know who’ll be taking them off later. Sometimes, I don’t wear any at all and just go straight commando – free-balling and letting it all hang out.
What are some of your goals and aspirations for the months ahead?
To provide more content for my fans. I also want to get more involved with evolving the industry, to better it for the next generation.
I’m working on changing hearts and minds of how people perceive black porn models, and how we’re all more than a BBC fantasy, or an extra in a ‘normal’ gay scene.
