Mickey Taylor announced his retirement and the next chapter
Mickey Taylor has posted a statement on Twitter, announcing that he has decided to retire from the adult entertainment industry.
In the statement, Mickey talks about the challenges he’s faced in the past year, and how he’s no longer enjoying his work in the world of gay porn.
With a new university course on his agenda, Mickey isn’t going to be disappearing, just changing direction.
A while back, we caught up with Mickey for a behind-the-scenes look at his online life.
How would you describe your sense of style?
“I’ve always been someone who doesn’t see gender on the clothes rack, and will just wear what I feel comfy and happy in.”
“I feel confident in what I wear and what I do. I love that people enjoy my outfits. I get so many messages about my style and how it inspires others to be confident. It baffles me a bit, but I welcome anything that pushes others to try new styles – that makes me happy.”
Any more tattoos planned?
“I’m almost done. It’s really only my right arm that I’m planning on fixing now. I’ve just had my torso reworked, and I love it! I’m almost done after that. No more face tatts – I promise!”
What are the logistics behind creating content for your fan-subscription channels?
“I book in a day with a model. Film it with him. Edit it. Publish it, and market it. It’s definitely a full-time job.”
“When it comes to working with studios, they’re all different – they’re like sexy snowflakes.”
“Fan-subscription sites give us the chance to actually survive in a decreasing sex market in the UK. It’s enabled us to build brands and names that, in turn, have helped many models when it comes to our studio presence.”
“Between the filming, the music, and the modelling, there’s never a dull day. It can be hard to find time for a cup of tea!”
Who are some of your porn heroes and inspirations?
“mr. Pam is definitely up there at number one. She got me an exclusive contract, taught me how to write scripts, and how to direct. She’s a total inspiration to me. We both push each other to go beyond what we do.”
“I wouldn’t say many people within work gave me that drive besides her. Maybe for comparison and healthy competition, I look at others to get better. But my strength comes from friends and my incredible support system. I don’t like to look to other models for that. I don’t want to become insecure by comparing myself to what they do. They do what they do, and I do what I do. We can’t compare or compete. We will never be each other.”
