ManCrush: Reno Gold
There’s a lot to admire about Reno Gold.
He’s one of the world’s most successful fan-subscription content creators and he’s recently launched his own membership site – RenoGold.com.
The new site showcases Reno’s content with options for members to request custom videos, and personal one-on-one interactions through online chat.
“Ever since I saw my first porn I knew I wanted to be a porn-star…” explains Reno. “Now, I’ve taken that dream even farther by launching my very own porn studio. I started in the adult industry at 18, webcam modelling and dancing, which eventually led me to OnlyFans. I love being in front of the camera but what I learned from creating my own content is that I really liked having creative control over my scenes and conceptualising them myself. I wanted even more creative control when it came to my actual platform so I created RenoGold.com.”
“Some guys I’ve been shooting have never done porn before and I enjoy mentoring them and creating a killer first scene…” adds Reno. “I hope to keep pushing the boundaries and expanding RenoGold.com. There’s so much more to come.”
Who is Reno Gold?
Reno is a young guy who lives in Florida. He’s originally from Nevada – his hometown was the inspiration for his stage name.
He made his name as a cam-sex model, but Reno’s now moved into the world of fan-subscription channels and it’s clearly paying off.
“At first, money was the main motivator for my work…” says Reno. “But now, I want to go down in history as the best content creator in the second golden era of porn!”
“It’s about quantity and quality…” says Reno, explaining his content plan of posting a new professional quality nude picture every day, a 15-minute solo scene every week, and two duo scenes a month. As a one-man operation, creating that kind of volume of content takes some doing.
“It’s not only about my body…” adds Reno. “My subscribers want someone who genuinely cares – I’ve built close bonds with many of them. I always respond to every customer with personalised voice recordings. If they tip me, I have a plethora of unreleased nude videos I send as a thank you. I also do a monthly raffle for one lucky fan to win a customised video of me that they get to direct.”
Having to navigate some learning challenges, the academic side of school was never Reno’s strong point. Sports was his thing, and he was particularly good at gymnastics – he was a national champion in tumbling.
Once he hit 18, Reno started dancing in strip clubs and exploring a career as a sex-worker.
“I immediately made more money than I had ever seen before…” remembers Reno. “My entire life at that time became based around sex work. A stripper is barely scraping by if he’s not escorting. It got to a point where I was basically living in hotel rooms and the only people I saw were other escorts and clients. I was making an insane amount of money but at the end of the day I was lonely and several times, I found myself in dangerously compromising situations.”
Cam-sex and then OnlyFans has enabled Reno to connect with a wider audience. Cross-promoting his channel through YouTube videos has been an effective marketing strategy to showcase his personality and build his fanbase.
“On OnlyFans, I post sizzling male-on-male duo scenes with imaginative storylines and funny scripts so my subscribers get a taste of my sense of humour and personality. I also post uncensored demonstration videos on scrotox injections, douching, and manscaping.”
“I’m investing in real estate and renting them out…” explains Reno, discussing his plans for the future. “So far, I’ve purchased five properties, all in cash. I want to have enough properties under my belt and just manage them and live off of that.”
Reno’s mother is managing the rental properties while Reno continues to focus on creating content.
“Sex work is really no different from any other kind of job in today’s digital age and I’m no different than most other guys in their twenties…” says Reno. “I wake up, hit the gym, work all day creating and distributing content, order Uber eats and then wrap it all up with Rick and Morty or some other cartoon before bed.”
How flexible is Reno Gold?
In his YouTube videos, Reno has demonstrated that he’s flexible enough to suck his own dick.
In one of our favourite of his OnlyFans videos, there’s a video of him wearing his wrestling singlet and demonstrating how flexible he is. The good news is that we don’t just have to imagine what he might be able to do with that kind of flexibility, he goes right ahead and rips open the wrestling singlet and goes to town, making the most of his flexibility – cock in mouth while playing with his fuck-hole.
It’s impressive stuff and Reno Gold is clearly one talented guy.
Is Reno Gold a model?
Reno Gold has clearly got the face and the body, so it’s no surprise that he’s featured in a number of marketing campaigns and photoshoots.
Underwear brands such as Box have featured Reno in their campaigns, and it’s clear that he looks great in underwear, and just as good without.
Reno started out as a gymnast, which explains how he got so flexible. He was also working as a web-cam model before becoming a content creator for OnlyFans.
“When OnlyFans came along I made the switch and completely stopped dancing and webcamming…” explained Reno, in an interview.
How much does Reno Gold charge for his OnlyFans channel?
A standard subscription for Reno Gold’s OnlyFans channel is USD$14.99 per month. There’s often discounts or bundles available, so it’s worth following him on Twitter or checking out his OnlyFans page to see what options available.
How much does Reno Gold make from OnlyFans?
Some press reports indicate that Reno is making somewhere around USD$100K per month from his OnlyFans channel. Depending on how you do the maths, it’s likely that he’s already pocketed around USD$1m from the videos he’s created for OnlyFans.
“I’ve been making a lot since Covid as people aren’t interacting with people face to face…” said Reno. “The first month of Covid it was insane the amount of money people were making, not just me.”
What makes Reno Gold successful on OnlyFans?
The fan-subscription market is very competitive – it’s difficult to stand out and build a following.
Being attractive and getting naked and having sex on camera is great, but it will only get you so far.
What makes Reno interesting to watch is that not only is he sexy-as-fuck, but he’s got a really warm and engaging personality that translates really well on camera.
“My selling factor is the way I communicate with people…” explains Reno. “My body is my business so I have to stay on top of it. But I don’t think looks are everything – if you show personality, there’s a market for that as well.”
He’s also talked about how he works hard to build a personal connection with his fans – replying to DMs and building the rapport that you need to ensure that you can retain subscribers.
“Be the best ‘you’ you can be…” advises Reno, reflecting on what it takes to make it as an OnlyFans model. “If you’re going to do it, give it your all. It’s not easy money – you have to put up content every day. I put up a professional nude every day. I do four solo scenes a week and two to three duo scenes a month.”
How is Reno Gold spending his OnlyFans money?
“I have 5 condos and I plan to continue on investing…” says Reno. “I’m investing in real estate and renting them out. I want to stop when I’m 30 and I’m in my prime. I want to have enough properties under my belt and just manage them and live off of that. I’ve got a good six years left in me!”
What sort of underwear does Reno Gold wear?
“I love having a variety of colours…” says Reno. “I know what looks good with my pale body!”
“I love jockstraps and I also love those lounge leggings – the super-stretchy ones that give you get a good VPL or Visible Penis Line.”
“Visible Penis Line is probably the most important part about underwear. Plus it needs to hold and support your bulge well, hug your balls, and show off your ass!”
