Mars Gymburger is looking to the future
I caught up with Mars Gymburger to reflect on his first year of pursuing a career in porn.
You’ve just celebrated your first year in porn – what led you to start exploring a career in porn?
It’s been a very interesting year!
It was time for me to break the borders in my head. This wasn’t an overnight decision – it’s something I’ve been thinking about for around three years.
I finally took that first step and I haven’t once regretted it.
Given you’ve only been working in the industry for one year, you already seem to have accomplished a lot – filming with big-name studios, awards nominations, lots of content on your JustFor.Fans, and performing at Hard On events in London. Did you achieve the goals that you set for yourself in the first year or has it gone better than expected?
I didn’t set any goals. I was just interested in observing myself, exploring possibilities, experiencing the journey.
I’m pleased with I’ve accomplished in the past year. I’ve met and worked with loads of famous and amazingly talented guys. I’m so honoured.
Who are some of your porn heroes or inspirations?
Brent Corrigan. Twelve years ago – when I first saw one of his films – I got the same blue star tattoo. He’s still my hero.
Being from Russia, you’ve talked about how freedom is very important for LGBTQ people in Russia. Is your work in porn in some way a protest against the censorship of LGBTQ people in Russia?
My work in porn will never be any form of protest.
LGBTQ people in Russia really need more freedom. But, at the same time, I haven’t experienced any sense of gay community in Russia.
Most of my gay friends stopped being friends with me after I started my porn career. Everyone except my best friend – he fully supported me. We’ve been friends for 15 years.
Can we talk underwear?
I don’t wear underwear – I go commando about 90 percent of the time. If I have to wear underwear, I’ll go for a jockstrap.
What are some of your goals and aspirations for the future?
I’m pursuing interesting new projects in porn, so that I can meet some good people and my lovely fans.
My biggest dream is to move to Spain – I want to live by the sea. Step by step, I’m working towards this goal.
