You’ve seen CT Hunter pop up in a few Lucas Entertainment scenes. Now he’s hooking up with us here at Man Crush for an exclusive interview where we talk to the former Marine about his crushes, his take on the porn industry and what motivates him.

CT Hunter | Lucas EntertainmentMan Crush: Let’s start off with some really random questions to make sure you’re warmed up and ready for me to go all Oprah’s Next Chapter on you, ok? What seemingly-heterosexual male celebrity do you hope would come out next?
CT Hunter: Id like to see CT from The Real World come out gay. He is just plan sexy. Him or Jason Statham.

Gay porn performers posting their Amazon Wish Lists on Twitter–for it or make it stop?
I’m actually against it. I believe if you want something, go get it. Don’t sit around and wait for it to be handed to you.

What’s the last song you bought on iTunes?
I got the album by Pink and Dallas Green, You & Me Rose Ave. I also bought Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” single.

What porn model/performer are you dying to do a scene with?
When I first started in porn I wanted to do one with the guy I was talking to at the time that became my man eventually, Corbin Riley. That has been accomplished. When I first came out I looked at guys like Spencer Reed and Cody Cummings while thinking of topping when getting off.

What’s the worst pick up line someone’s attempted to use on you and how’d you respond to it?
Never really had pick up lines thrown my way. Until Corbin, most guys would just eye fuck me from across the room and never have the balls to say anything to me. I like men that have the confidence to go after what they want not just sit and wait for it to come tho them.

From HIV concerns to studios that seems to glamorize or attempt to make barebacking appealing, there’s a lot going on in the porn industry these days. What’s your take on the industry as it is right now?
I feel that HIV should be talked about more by the studios and how HIV works. I have not been educated to the fullest on it. You hear and see the HIV awareness ads but  they never explain it. I feel it’s a scary thing if it’s not explained and I think the industry needs to go into more in detail about the disease and counts and what everything means. Explain what prep is and how it works. I feel HIV is like being gay when being gay was taboo–you didn’t talk about because no one knew about gay people. Now it’s more acceptable to be gay because of education and that same stigma is there with HIV.

CT Hunter | InterviewYou’re in a relationship with another porn actor, Corbin Riley. How do you find the balance between being in a committed relationship and having to put yourself on display with porn?
Corbin actually brought me into the business and gave me the push and confidence I needed and convinced me that I do look good enough to be in porn. It’s not easy and is all about trust. To get that trust takes time. Corbin made us date and talk for 5 months before committing. Work has to be work. Go do a scene and come home to each other–no staying and partying with these other beautiful men in the business. It’s never easy in a relationship as a normal person but in the industry we are in it really takes a lot of confidence in us and trust that we have built.

There are some in the porn industry that seem to want to dedicate themselves to it 24/7 while there are others that work regular 9-to-5 jobs to support themselves. Is porn for you a career or a hobby?
To me porn is more of a means to get myself out there and a way to make me feel confident in myself. I have been the ugly duckling my whole life till I hit my 30s. I was always skinny with acne and finally I changed that by going to the gym and realizing no one is perfect. I had former porn stars say I was so ugly that no one would touch me to scratch me. For me, porn was a way of showing I can do whatever I put my mind to. I like to beat the odds in everything in life. So porn is a hobby that gives me the confidence i have lacked in the past.

Years ago it seems like you had some iconic porn figures that resonated across various with a broad audience. Now it feels like we have fewer stars but an onslaught of models competing for that title. To you, what separates a porn star from a porn model?
The difference to me between a star and a model are a few things. “Stars” are those such as Johnny V, Draven Torres, Billy Santoro, Hugh Hunter, Corbin Riley, Brain Bonds, Eli Lewis and Tyler Wolf. The reason is that they have the fame and the backing yet know what it’s like to be in the beginning of your career and are willing to support and help in any way possible. Remembering where you came from is key. A model, to me, could be a huge name but they are all about themselves and let the fame get to their head. An example of that is when I’ve asked a big name to retweet some things for me to get my name out more the reply I get is “What’s in it for me?” It’s sad that people forget where they come from and what it was like being new in the industry.

Where do you see porn going a decade from now? Where do you see yourself within the industry in a decade?
I see porn becoming less of a big deal. I think it’s already becoming that since celebrities like Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Eric Dane, Tommy Lee and others have already broke the stereotype that porn is bad. Now I think porn is the way into a bigger industry in the entertainment world. I see myself using my degrees I’ve been working on and hopefully still being involved in the industry, doing work behind the scenes in some form.

What’s the best piece of fitness or health advice you’ve received that you think everyone would benefit from knowing?
My body type is different from those that deal with weight issues. I lose weight fast due to a high metabolism. I was taught by a trainer on how to gain weight and the proper way to lift. It’s not all about the weight you can lift but the reps and doing it proper. I’ve had four shoulder surgeries and still two left to get, not including one for my back and my neck. With his advice on lifting proper and eating I have pecs now and gained 25 to 30 lbs.

What does it take to have a porn-ready body?
I feel a porn-ready body is anyone that feels confident in how they look. What’s hot to me isn’t hot to others. There are several body types out there and types of porn. Some guys love huskier and hairy guys. Some like the muscle smooth bodies. From twinks to bears, we are all porn-ready if the confidence is there and should all support each other and not bash one another. Overall it depends on your confidence and your taste in men.

Do guys try to approach you in the gym or in the locker room after they recognize you from one of your scenes or are you still able to get by under the radar?
Guys for the most part are intimidated by me and don’t approach me. This has been happening since I bulked up and came out. Now I’ll hear people say, “That’s CT Hunter!” but no one will approach me when I’m out in public. I get the messages later on on Grindr or Scruff saying “hi” or “I saw you out” and “You’re so hot.” I normally stay in though. I’m a homebody. I have four rescue dogs that I saved when I first got out of the Marines that have saved me from myself and have helped me deal with PTSD. I’m a family guy that loves being with them and recognize the important people in my life. Plus, I have a great man and roommate in Corbin Riley and Draven Torres at home that I like to be with and not deal with drama that people like to cause because of what we do.

What’s your least favorite workout move or muscle to work and how do you motivate yourself to get through it?
I hate doing my legs and ass. I hate the feeling of not being able to walk the next 3 days after because I’m the one that forgets everything up stairs and have to make multiple trips at 20 min of trying to get up them after a leg workout.

CT Hunter | InterviewPorn career aside, who are you? What motivates you most in life?
Before porn came into my life I was a man that was lost after getting out of the Marines. I bounced state to state and college to college on what I called the Van Wylder program–a lot of degrees but never completed. I came out 4 years ago and went through the catty gay world that I thought would be accepting and found out it’s like high school all over again. I dealt with the rumors and lies about me being a whore and everything else that wasn’t true. Because of the hate I got I went into a depression for a while never going out and then realized that’s not me: I’m a fighter and hit the gym and started reinventing myself.

After a year away from the gay scene and changing my looks by covering the scars with tattoos and putting on 30 lbs of muscle I came back out and people didn’t even recognize me. I faced the rumors head on. I found improving yourself really ate the haters up. Those that turned me down now begged me for a date and those that spread rumors were fast to stop in their tracks and apologize.

What’s one big misconception you’ve found that a lot of people have about you that you’d like to dispel?
That I’m a power bottom. A lot of people think I’m a power bottom from my scenes. Don’t get me wrong, I love taking a dick but would rather be giving the dick. I’d only bottom for 3 people ever before Corbin came along. I have always been the type to save my ass for a relationship. The three guys before Corbin all were serious relationships and only bottom for them a few times because I’m an aggressive power top. I like to really pound and get aggressive which has yet to be allowed to be shown yet. My first scenes were hard for me to do because of my beliefs and lack of experience in being a bottom. I was blessed to have great support from my boyfriend and roommate. I also was extremely blessed to have people on set that new understood I’m not that experienced in bottoming. They all from Lucas entertainment staff and my scene partners helped me become a better bottom and showed great support and patience with me as I took two big cocks that I wasn’t use to.

Though it’s a bit premature to talk about this, do you ever consider at what point you’ll take a bow from the industry? There are a lot of performers that seem to give it 2-3 years and then they suddenly aren’t here or doing scenes. At what point will you know it’s time to take a step back or leave the industry behind?
I think after two to three years in the business I’ll be like the rest and will move on to accomplish other goals in life. There are always new and better looks and bodies coming up that are going to take the scene over. I’d like to eventually have my own business using my degrees that I’m still working on and living somewhere on a beach with my dogs and soon to be husband, just enjoying life to the fullest. I learned so far that life is short and to do everything you can while you can.

What’s your life’s motto?
Life is short and you only live once so do what makes you happy and if others don’t like or support your life decisions that’s ok. I have lived my past trying to make everyone else happy and found I couldn’t and I was miserable. Now I’m doing what I want and standing for what I believe in and realizing my true friends and real family are supportive of my choices because they have never seen me this happy. If you want something, go get it. If you’re not happy with life, change it. live life to the fullest and stand for what you believe in because some can’t.

What male celeb, athlete or personality do you have a crush on?
I have a crush on Jesse Williams from Grey’s Antomy, Channing Tatum, CT from the Real World, David Beckham, Justin Timberlake, Jason Statham, and the late Paul Walker.

So just about everybody in Hollywood? Ok, you get the final word! What parting thought, idea or message would you like to leave with the readers and your fans?
Just like to say thank you for the support from my fans and no matter what I’d be nothing without their support and them following me on this journey. I always have time to answer them in any form. May take me a few days but will get back to all of them.Also thank you for those in the business that have helped boost me and gave me advice when feeling down. Thank you to Lucas Entertainment for giving me my break when others wouldn’t.

Live your life and do what makes you happy because it’s your life no one else’s. If you’re told you can’t then show them you can because you’ll feel great and those that doubted you will feel dumb. I was told never lift more then 5 lbs–I have; I was told I would never get past my past and I have; I was told I was too ugly to do porn and too ugly to even scratch and now I’m in the industry; I was told no one could ever love me and now I’ve found the love of my life. Do you and let no one tell you differently. I’ll keep doing me and doing porn as long as I’m wanted and supported.
