Do Australians even eat kangaroos? One of the world's biggest male porn stars will soon find out about the tendency for some Australians to eat the national icon when he makes his first foray down under next month for Sexpo in Melbourne. In the adult entertainment industry, Sins is prolific. He started getting his kit off in and hasn't stopped since. But I like at least a day off a week to rest up and get horny again. Along the way he's picked up a few gongs for his schlong including website PornHub's most popular male porn star voted on by women.
His YouTube channel has over a million subscribers and by some estimates his videos have been downloaded 52 million times. He puts his enduring success down to three things: "Reliability, likability on set But there's been a few hiccups, the shave headed and ripped actor reveals. From working for free, to how to tell his mum he was porn star — and then there's the sex scene he wished he'd never done.
Sins says inappropriate men were being "weeded out". Sins, as you might have guessed, is a stage name which he prefers to use in his professional life. Before he was Mr Sins, he remembers stumbling across his brother's Penthouse stash. It sowed a seed. At university he managed to persuade his unsuspecting parents to splash out on a fancy computer. He admits his intentions were not pure.
After graduation, he began a career in construction management. For years he worked on construction sites until he hooked up with a friend who was in the pornography industry. Inspired, he headed to Los Angeles, the world centre of not just Hollywood movies but the more adult variety too. I started at the bottom of the business, doing scenes for free. Then I moved up and met some girls in the business who referred me to other jobs.
I didn't have a girlfriend and I was going to have sex on my own time anyway, so it made sense to do it at work," says Sins. That wasn't Sins' plan. That achieved, he's now looking to earn even more producing his own content that he retains ownership of and can distribute through the major porn sites or his own Sins Life platform.
Now all you need to do is upload your content and you have your own business. I'm 40 now so I haven't quite achieved that but I'm ready to slow down and work more on my own stuff for the next couple of years as my exit strategy. Now, Sins chooses the scenes he wants to do. That wasn't the case early on and there's one shoot, in hindsight, he wished he'd never done. It was a fetish movie, and the fetish was furries. If you don't know, furries don anthropomorphic animal costumes in the style of cartoon characters.
Some also shag in them. I was hot and it was logistically complicated because you can't see what's going on. Perhaps even more awkward than having to make love dressed as a rabbit, is having to tell your mum that your chosen career involves making love dressed as a rabbit. I would lie when they asked how work was. They were definitely a little shocked, they're small town conservatives but when I said that I was safe and not on drugs they accepted it.
It's a better experience than a lot people have. One thing he didn't have to admit to was filming gay porn, which is not uncommon for many men in the industry. With only around male actors in straight porn, says Sins, there's certainly more work for male actors in gay scenes. But it's not for him: "Even if I wanted to do gay porn, it wouldn't have worked. I've got a one-track mind and that's girls. Not only has he made money out of porn, he's also found a girlfriend and business partner in Kissa Sins.
People frequently assume they're married. One day we just filmed ourselves for the hell of it and she loved being on camera and that was how their website Sins Life was born. The treatment of women in the pornography industry has been highlighted by the MeToo movement, he said. It's good to weed out these guys.
Good directors, Sins says, now asked actors before touching them if, for instance, they want them to change position. He hopes the changes will lead to the industry being seen in a positive light. At Sexpo, Sins will be meeting his fans, most of who are women. And maybe trying some more kangaroo jerky. Blokes often ask him if his job is easy. That anyone can do it is the biggest myth of the business, he says. This story was first published on news. New Zealand Herald. Subscribe to Premium. Sign In Register.
