ManCrush: Michael Torres
We caught up with Michael Torres for a behind-the-scenes look at his online life.
What led you to start exploring a career in porn?
It was an impulse decision.
When I was in my early-30s, a porn company asked me if I wanted to work with them. At that time, I was going out with a porn-star. I was flattered to be asked, but I said no – I wasn’t ready.
In my early-40s, I moved to Chicago. I was dating a guy who kept telling me that I was too promiscuous, that I was too much of a flirt, that I was like all the other guys. I decided that there’s nothing wrong with being friendly, or promiscuous, or like all the other guys. That night, I set up my OnlyFans page and was ready to embrace everything that came my way.
I’m no longer dating that guy – he was a buzz-killer.
Would you describe yourself as an exhibitionist?
Absolutely, without a doubt, yes.
Growing up, I lived next to the ocean. Taking off my clothes and jumping in the water was a daily routine.
My family moved to the United States from Puerto Rico. There was a clothing optional beach near me and I always spent most of the summer there.
Who are some of your porn heroes and inspirations?
When I lived in New York, I worked in gay bars for a number of years. I met lots of guys in the industry – some of whom became my best friends. Guys like Blu Kennedy, Aaron Tanner, and Manuel Torres.
Personally, I really love amateur porn.
What do you enjoy about creating fan-subscription content?
In any aspect of your life, freedom is always great. My OnlyFans channel gives me the freedom to direct my own movies. I have the freedom to choose my own scene partners. I also get to have much more personal interactions the audience, my subscribers.
I know a lot of the big-name porn stars – I’m good friends with a number of them – but they’re not high on my list to film with. If it happens then it happens, but I much prefer amateur encounters – filming with amateur guys. It just feels more authentic to me.
Can we talk underwear?
CellBlock 13 underwear and swimwear are my favourite – I wear them all the time.
When I want to feel sexy, I wear swimming trunks. It makes me laugh, but wearing swimming trunks makes me feel sexy – I wear them instead of underwear all the time.
