ManCrush: Aiden Ward
There’s a lot to admire about Aiden Ward.
Based in New York City, Aiden has filmed with studios such as Raw Fuck Club, and CockyBoys, as well as producing super-hot content for his fan-subscription channels.
He’s also picking up awards for his work in the industry – his duo with Jacen Zhu for CockyBoys won the 2022 GayVN Award for Best Duo Sex Scene.
We caught up with Aiden for a behind-the-scenes look at his online life.
“To be honest, from the first time I saw porn, I was completely fascinated – someone could get paid to have sex!” explains Aiden, when we ask him what drew him to the adult entertainment industry. “I knew from when I was 12 that I wanted to experience this.”
“Fast Forward to when I am 24 and dating someone who asks me one night ‘what is something you’ve always wanted to do, that you’ve never done before?’ I immediately said porn.”
“I never knew what I wanted to do as far as college or for a career, and I was just working in fine dining as a director of operations for a small restaurant group in my hometown. So I figured why not try it out. I have the support of my boyfriend and I think I am ready to do it.”
“Ironically enough, that week I was going to meet up with one of my fuck buddies and he asked if I would be cool with a threeway. The third person was a pornstar, who I had recognized from a few studio pornos I had seen online. After we all fucked, he asked if I had ever done porn or considered doing it and if I would be interested in signing with the agency that represented him. So I jumped and I am so happy I did.”
“This is such a fun world. I love that I have been able to make this my full time job in addition to having the fan pages.”
“I wouldn’t say that I go out seeking attention…” says Aiden, when we ask if he’d describe himself as an exhibitionist. “But, when it’s there, then absolutely – I put on a show!”
“I was at Market Days festival in Chicago a couple of years ago. I went to Steamworks bathhouse and there was this sexy, tatted-up, muscular man tied to a fuck-bench, restrained by his collar and wrist and and ankle restraints. I was instantly salivating and drawn to his hole. I wasn’t paying any attention to anything that was going on around me, I was just focused on enjoying his hole. It was such a hot, rough fuck – dirty and aggressive. I didn’t realise that we’d drawn a crowd. When I finished and got off of him, everyone started clapping. I loved that people got off to watching me fuck that guy.”
“Since then, I’ve also performed in a live sex show in Germany, and danced at Nob Hill Theatre. Now those are the kind of shows where you have to be a real attention-seeker.”
“I’ve got a pretty big list!” says Aiden, when we ask him who his heroes or inspirations are in the world of adult entertainment.
“In my first year of doing fan-site content, I focused on filming with the guys who I thought of as my heroes – guys like Rocco Steele, Max Konnor, Austin Wolf, and Rhyheim Shabazz. For me, they’re the guys who set the standard.”
“I enjoy it…” confirms Aiden, when we ask how he finds the entrepreneurial side of the business. “Creating content for fan-subscription sites means that I meet lots of interesting people. I also enjoy traveling – but that hasn’t been possible since Covid hit.”
“I wish I had more drive and motivation when it comes to keeping up with my social media, but I’m working on setting up a few weeks worth of auto posts so that I can start to focus my attention on other areas of my life and figure out my next moves to further grow myself into a brand.”
“It all depends on my mood that day and what clothes I’m wearing…” says Aidan, when our conversation inevitably turns to underwear. “If I’m horny, and it’s summertime, I could be wearing a jock underneath some tight cut offs. When I’m in the gym, I personally like to wear a thong. I like feeling something tease my hole while I’m getting my juices flowing at the gym – I’m also most likely cruising very hard.”
“As for underwear on other men, I guess whatever looks good on their body. A bubble butt in a thong or a jock is delicious, but a bulging dick in a simple pair of black boxer briefs will also drive me wild. Also, anything vintage-looking also turns me on.”
