ManCrush: Ben York
I caught up with Ben York for a behind-the-scenes look at his online life.
What led you to explore the world of fan-subscription sites?
Two things. I have a very sweet friend named Chris Crocker who had experienced a lot of success in this area. I saw what he was doing, and he encouraged me to take it up myself. At the time, I was also escorting – a fan-subscription channel seemed like a much larger return on investment.
I’d just begun working as a social media manager for my favourite VHS Cleaner brand, Double Scorpio – as a means to transform my thottie instagram persona into sustainable income. I figured, why post all these attention-grabbing images online if its only cause is to fuel my ego? Might as well seize the opportunity to support myself as well.
Who are some of your porn heroes or inspirations?
Chris Crocker is definitely an inspiration to me. From the MySpace era of videos – before YouTube – this beautiful person emboldened me, and made me feel valid. Those things to me are the best outcomes I could dream of in looking for a hero or inspiration.
I hope I can offer the same confidence to hairy, or softer guys.
Your body hair is awesome. Is that one of your USPs when it comes to the content you create for your subscribers?
I think my body hair does attract a lot of attention.
My content is generally jerk-off videos. I’m very eager to make more videos with other actors.
There are a good number of public cruising, under-stall, and blow-job videos as well. I often upload a few nude pictures that I’ve quickly shot with my iPhone when I masturbate.
Often, I think of unique scenarios I can record myself in as well. Like a simple shower video, or a video of me trimming my beard. Everyday things that someone may enjoy watching.
Do you enjoy the entrepreneurial side of running a fan-subscription site?
This is something I’m just now getting more into – I’m very excited about it.
I’m leaving my part-time work to pursue this full-time – it’s shown a lot of promise over the past year.
Also, I’m open to assistance – if anyone out there is reading this and can help a guy get those balls rolling, feel free to reach out to me through Twitter DMs.
Can we talk underwear?
I love underwear quite a lot.
Day to day, I consider what activities I have planned before choosing a pair. Around the house, I don’t usually wear any under my shorts. If I’m going to work, I’ll wear something that won’t rise into my thighs.
At the gym, I usually free-ball. I have a few Double Scorpio jockstraps I like to wear when I’m feeling sexy.
I also have a handful of quickly made cheap mesh-thong hybrid types as well. I love thongs! But I’m very particular about the shape of them.
