Colby Keller

Colby Keller is a porn star who has developed a considerable following from the CockyBoys website and his blog www.ColbyKeller.com. Featured in the film series “A Thing of Beauty,”and photographed for the affiliated coffee table book of the same name, the sexy Keller describes himself as “a big old man”— quite a contrast to the other CockyBoys.

“I don’t think I’m cocky. I’m the inverse. I’m the foil to the erotic potential of the cocky boy!” he said with considerable self-deprecation in a recent Skype session.

Keller exhibits a refreshing candor about his sexuality. He spoke with The Mirror about his work and what turns him on.

Since you’re not gay for pay, let’s break the ice by talking about your coming out experience.

I came out when I was 15. I came out because of porn. I had a box of [gay] porn under the sink in my bathroom and my parents found it and confronted me. I think I hid this partly in the hope it would be discovered. My mother is an evangelical Christian and it was very traumatic. I locked myself in my bedroom and we had “the conversation” through the door.

How did you develop the ability to be comfortable posing nude and having sex on camera?

It took a lot of work to make that look realistic. I’m actually very shy. When I first started in porn (more than 10 years ago, working off and on) I was very nervous. As soon as the camera came on, my armpits were like Niagara Falls. I’ve learned techniques to work beyond it. The porn personality has to be an exhibitionist, and a narcissist with no sexual inhibitions. And those can be positive traits — well, not the narcissist part. Porn is a tool in that respect.

There’s a very erotic image of you in the book “A Thing of Beauty,” where you are seen from the side, lying a on a bed and resting on your elbows sporting an erection. You look ready for sex. If someone were to walk in that room, and see you like that, what would you want them to do to you?

In my own fantasy, I love fucking. So I love the idea of someone walking in and sitting down on it. I’m less interested in someone sucking me off. There’s something powerful in going right to fucking. There’s an erotic potential in not having sex in a regimented way — strip, touch, suck, rim, fuck. It’s a challenge to break the routine.

How are shooting the photos different from shooting the films?

RJ Sebastian [film director/photographer] is so talented behind the camera, and he knows the shots he wants and how to get it. He’s cued in to what looks good on camera. That makes my job easier. He takes the best photos of me. He’s captured something in me that others can’t. The photos are done before the film shoots, and that’s the hardest part for me.

Do you watch your films?

I can’t watch myself in porn. It’s really hard for me to look at the photos in the book. When I have to blog about a video, I have to look at photos, but I feel it’s hard to be objective.

What’s your ideal man? Do you have a “type”?

I like a lean athletic body, someone who is smart and kind and a nice round butt and really big dicks. Sometimes it comes down to the obvious things about a body. Turn offs: A guy who wears a lot of deodorant, or if they are too groomed. I’m not the best looking guy and I don’t have the biggest dick, but I like sex, and sex can be fun and hot and for someone average like me.

What makes a good sexual encounter for you?

Sex with reciprocity. I want to turn my partner on and find the things that really gets them off. I love kissing and touching bodies and finding that space. I just did a scene and figured out what this guy liked, and his whole body was covered in goose-pimples and I was so happy and turned on because I turned him on so much. When you are doing something to satisfy them, and they are trying really hard to hit your buttons, that turns me on—that back and forth.

CockyBoys promotes safe sex. What can you say about the issue of barebacking and HIV in the industry?

In the gay community there isn’t an honest or realistic discussion of safe sex and barebacking. Truvada was approved, and if you take the pill effectively, you will reduce your chances [of contracting HIV]. Young gay kids are not using condoms as much as previous generations did. It can keep them safe.

What is something folks would be surprised to learn about you?

I’m a Marxist, so it’s important for me to understand what it is I do, and my ethical obligations are to other people in this profession. I can’t control some things — I don’t make or produce the films — but I have commitments to my fans and scene partners and I feel it’s important to be transparent about those things. My work as an artist is to address porn as a phenomenon of labor, and emphasize the values that I want to see brought in the world.

“A Thing of Beauty” shows fresh, unspoiled faces in an offbeat way. Photographers Jake Jaxson and RJ Sebastian effectively and emotionally draws attention to the young performers.
