Rocco Steele | Man Crush Blog InterviewHe’s the guy that’s turning heads in porn. Hung beyond belief, rugged and aggressive–Rocco Steele is wasting no time taking the industry by storm and leaving no bottom unturned and gasping for air in his ascent to the top. But, who is this mysterious man beyond the penis? I set out to discover the man behind the porn and we discussed various topics from getting the most out of life to his views on barebacking. Check out the interview below.

Ice Breakers
Man Crush: I always like to fire off some random questions at the start of an interview to make sure you’re awake and fluffed for the real stuff. What’s your favorite curse word? 

Rocco Steele:
“Motherfucker!” I’m a New Yorker and we use the F word in almost every other sentence.

I have to confess I’m a bit turned on by your deep voice I’ve heard in some of your scenes, among other things. What would you name as your sexiest feature?

My eyes.

With all the muscles, tattoos and overall sexiness going on with you I can imagine some guys being a bit intimidated when approaching you or expressing interest. How would a guy win the attention and interest of Rocco Steele?
Just be a genuinely good, decent person….and humility is a huge turn on. Oh yeah, and I don’t trust a person who doesn’t love animals. And if you’ve rescued an animal, we are probably going on a date.

Bestow some wisdom on us. In your opinion, how can we get more pleasure out of life?
Get out of your head and do something nice for another person each day of your life. In other words, be of service to others.

This is the Man Crush Blog where every day we’re objectifying and obsessing over men simply based on how good looking they are. What male out there gets you all hot and bothered?
Right now it’s Justin Theroux. Have you seen that boy jogging in his sweats on The Leftovers?

The Porn
Uhm, I’m gay. I have the gifs of his junk swinging like a helicopter on my desktop! Anyway, when coming up with questions to ask you I read your interview with Manhattan Digest where you made an interesting statement that I definitely want to elaborate on a bit. You commented on how some studios handle or portray barebacking better than others. Do you feel studios and performers have any sort of responsibility in educating their audiences about safe sex or has porn become more about the fantasy and rawness, tossing “real world” concerns and worries to the side?
Rocco Steele | Man Crush Blog InterviewIt’s definitely tough to put this on porn models. We are trying to make a living like anybody else and I know, for me anyways, there is a LOT of work in bareback porn and that’s why I gravitated towards it–not because I promote bareback sex over safe sex, because I don’t.  I waited and waited for condom studios to call me and so far, only two have. So if a model wants to work, he may have to make a decision to do bareback porn to survive in the industry. Studios are in a better position to present it responsibly and as I’ve said it before I think studios can produce bareback videos in a way to still encourage being “safe” about it, whether it be via disclaimers or not outright promoting the transmission of the virus.

I’ve seen that your scene partners have been very diverse. Draven Torres, Armond Rizzo, Tony Orion and Cutler X, to name a few. As someone of color I always notice that even though we’re in 2014 there still seems to be a lot of separation of ethnicities in porn. You have white guys over here doing their things and people of color or a different race sometimes pushed into a niche category. Do you have any say in who your scene partners are? Why aren’t we seeing more scenes with diversity?
 
can’t answer why there isn’t more diversity but agree there should be. I know studios such as Rawstrokes loves to pair interracial couples–that’s their thing. I generally do not pick my scene partners but usually studios will ask the type of person I am interested in shooting with. Sometimes that includes the race of a person. I like all guys as long as they’re sexy.

Your cock is perhaps one of the biggest I’ve seen. I honestly had to stop mid-way through your scene with Armond and pray that he survived to see the climax. What’s the best thing about being as hung and endowed as you are? What would you say is a pitfall of having such a big dick?

The best thing about it is pretty obvious–a lot of guys want a crack at it. The worst thing is that not all guys can take it. It’s usually the guys I am really into that have a hard time taking it [laughs]. Relationships have ended because of it.

In your interview with Manhattan Digest you stated that this porn career may be short lived. What do you hope to accomplish in the time you’re active in the industry? 

I just want to have fun and to be well-received by the industry. I want to feel good about what I do on camera. I want studios to feel that I was a professional with integrity and I want fans to feel they got even more than what they paid for.

If you could choose one performer that you absolutely need to do a scene with, who would that lucky guy be?

I’ve said before that my porn crush is Marcus Isaacs. Lately I’ve also been obsessed with Rogan Richards, though I don’t think two tops would ever get a scene together, unless it’s a threesome. But he is a stunning man. Rocco Steele | Man Crush Blog InterviewThe Body
Enough with the porn. Let’s talk about this body of yours! According to your RentBoy profile you’re 44 and you have a better body than most 20 year olds. What the heck is your secret?
Well truth be told I’m now 45. I have not had a drink or drug in almost 16 years. I drink tons of water. I eat well. I sleep well. And I use a good moisturizer. 

Rocco Steele | Man Crush Blog InterviewNow if I or the other Man Crush readers wanted to become a hot muscle daddy like you, what should we be doing in the gym?

To be completely honest, I still don’t know [laughs]. I just make sure I go to the gym 6-7 days a week and I look at guys who have the body I want to have and I watch what they do.

I read that you don’t smoke, don’t do drugs and don’t drink. How has being substance free helped with your fitness and health goals? I know those three things are a bit prevalent in the gay community so I’d imagine it could present some challenges from time to time. 

Yes, as mentioned earlier it has totally helped. On a very practical level, it’s really much easier to get to the gym now that I’m no longer hungover or recovering from some circuit party. With respect to them being a challenge, thankfully it has not been for me. I have never had the urge to pick up a drink or drug since I decided to quit almost 16 years ago. Unfortunately, I am often reminded of where drinking and drugging can take me when I see how it destroys lives of those sometimes close to me and those in our community. When I see this, it re-affirms why I am sober and I am grateful.

I’m always interested in learning what you would consider to be the best piece of health or fitness advice you’ve received that you think everyone should hear?
It wasn’t advice told to me by anybody but its something I just learned over the years and that is “be kind to yourself.” Not every workout is going to be the most productive nor will I always feel motivated. On those days, I just do an easy workout or sometimes I just go home and come back the next day. The other advice I would give is to be patient with results. If a person is consistent then the results will come, but give it a little time.

If you had to choose one exercise as your favorite, which one would you choose and what results and benefits do you see from doing it?

I LOVE squats. I’ve never worked my glutes seriously until about a year ago but now I really look forward to ass day. I want to have a big muscle butt! I still have a lot of work to do but I am enjoying the challenge. I used to have no ass at all so squats are definitely helping. Rocco Steele | Man Crush Blog InterviewPersonal
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Stop being hard on yourself. Now! Rocco Steele | Man Crush Blog Interview


What would you say has been the best moment in your life so far? What’s been the worst?
The worst moment of my life was making the decision to euthanize my dog of 14 years. I had to make a decision on the spot in the vet’s office. I have lost a parent and that’s a whole different loss and very tough but this was worse because I wasn’t sure if I was making the right decision and my dog could not communicate with me to tell me what was happening. Two years later, it brings tears to me eyes. The best moment of my life was really longer than a moment … but it was the period of time when I got sober almost 16 years ago. I was so happy because I knew my life was going to get better.

I’ve read that you left a corporate job to pursue your own interest, one of them being your career in porn. What ultimately though are you in pursuit of? What’s going to make you happy at the end of the day? 
For the record I didn’t leave my job to pursue porn. I left my job to start my business. Porn is a side gig to help me as I pursue that goal. It turns out that I enjoy it and I’m having a blast. And yes, I am starting a company right now. it will make me happy to see that to fruition and to truly be my own boss. But in general, no matter what I’m doing–at the end of the day, it makes me happy if I feel I’ve been as productive as I could be that day and hopefully and did something good and positive for the universe.

What’s one misconception that everyone seems to have about you that you’d like to dispel? 
I want to dispel the myth that I am strictly a bareback actor. I welcome condom scenes equally but those jobs are not being offered to me as much.

You’ve made it to the end of the interview! What parting thought or message would you like to leave with your fans and the readers of this interview?

I am nothing without the support of fans, followers and readers. Because of them I can be on this journey and I am extremely grateful.
