ManCrush: Damon Heart
There’s a lot to admire about Damon Heart.
Originally from Antwerp, Damon has filmed with studios such as Lucas Entertainment, and Men At Play, and he’s also creating super-hot content for his fan-subscription channels.
We caught up with Damon for a behind-the-scenes look at his life in porn.
What was it that intrigued you about becoming a porn performer?
I’m convinced that people evolve in their sexual behaviour. I started exploring sex at a very young age - maybe too young. I was intrigued by the little nude magazines that my father would hide in his garage. Soon after those, I found a video cassette. I still remember the story today - it was a straight version of Robin Hood in porn, it’s still probably my favourite movie.
Ever since that exact moment, I always wondered how it would be to be in a porn movie. The idea grew and changed form over the years, but eventually it happened.
Now I enjoy sex in a very different way. Besides my natural sexual appetite, I developed a very specific interested in recording sex in different ways, through different stories. It’s the hunger for more and new triggers.
Would you describe yourself as an exhibitionist?
No - even in a gay bathhouse I cover myself in towels. l’m comfortable being naked among very close friends, but even that only happened after I started doing porn.
The fact that I prefer people to be covered in a bit of fabric probably has to do with my addiction to underwear.
What sort of underwear do you prefer?
I wear it all - jocks, thongs, briefs, leather, neoprene - you name it, I have it and wear it. My underwear drawer recently fell through my closet because it was so heavy.
I’m not a big fan of the oversized classic striped straight underwear, but as long as a man wears underwear then I’m fine with it. If he invests a moment to think his underwear game through, I’m heated up. If he buys the sexy brands, I’m on it!
Who are some of your porn heroes or inspirations?
I have some directors and filmmakers that are an inspiration to me. Besides those, I’d say my porn heroes or inspirations are my mentor and friend Steve Matthews, Alter Sin, and the queen of porn Mr Pam.
Most models I meet are nice people and easy to work with. However, if I had to pick any model who inspires me, I’d go for Adam Killian. He’s been in the industry forever, and knows what he’s talking about – the way he collaborates with the director and the crew is epic. Another one would be Kayden Gray – not only for his incredibly work in porn, but also for his role and effort in educating about PrEP and HIV.
As I’ve spent more time on set, I’ve learned that every model who cares about the content and quality of his work will always ask the same question afterwards – ”How was it?” Thinking about this kind of ‘work ethic’ and analysing it, got me to the conclusion that it doesn’t really matter what you do in life. Everybody needs appreciation for his or her achievements. However, the necessity and dimension of this personal need depends on many different things, it mostly depends on the extent of your personal input on the job.
I think it’s necessary for us models and colleagues in the business to take a clear stand against people who don’t treat us well - you have to take a stand against people who disrespect you and your rights as a human being, or people who violate their own rules and regulations for their own purposes.
