Most people know their favourite porn stars by which studios they’ve worked for or what scenes they have been in. Some people have even had the chance to see porn stars making appearances or dancing at a club in their city as they tour the continent going from shoot to shoot. But not many people can tell you much about the personal side of gay porn stars. Here’s a glimpse into the life of Christopher Daniels.
Christopher Daniels didn’t start off in the gay porn industry. He actually started off as an escort. Doing gay porn wasn’t even on his radar, in fact, it scared him. Wanting to further promote his escorting services he did his own investigation, saw how it was done and then made the decision to give it a try. The rest is history.
“I used to be a trained dancer,” said 32-year-old Christopher Daniels, explaining how he keeps in such great shape. Having a great body is incredibly important when working in the gay porn industry. “I transitioned out of that into crossfit. I just left crossfit because of injuries. Now I’m with a personal trainer three to five days per week, which is really hard when I’m on the road.”
“I was pretty quiet and reserved growing up,” says Christopher. “I was also really neat and orderly. I liked to keep my room nice and tidy.” Even today, Christopher is a perfectionist.
“I was always doing dance theatre, acting, and reading,” continued Christopher as he talked about his adolescence. “Dancing and theatre were my main focuses. It was where my time and energy was invested.” This helps to explain why Christopher is such a great performer.
“I try not to get stressed and angry about things I cannot change,” said Christopher. His laid back attitude is a reflection on how he has no real regrets in life.
But say it was Christopher’s last day on Earth, he says he would probably panic. “I’d spend time with my dogs and reach out to people who meant the most to me. Maybe get a little drunk and high.”
Everyone dreams of their ideal partner. As a porn star, Christopher Daniels has a great opportunity to meet and perform with many attractive models. He does have a particular kind of guy that he likes.
“He has to be hairy,” said Christopher. “Dark features and completion, a sense of humour about himself and others, and someone who can talk a lot about himself and others.” Most importantly, his ideal guy needs to be a huge sex pig!
Everyone has their pet peeves, including Mr. Easy Going Christopher Daniels. “I hate straight females in gay clubs, inefficient people, flakiness, and shallow people. A big one in my life, and especially in my industry, are people who are way more focused on themselves. When you meet someone and you spend time with them, and they spend 85% of the time talking about themselves, that’s a huge pet peeve of mine!”
Christopher also says that he is motivated by his work. “Right now my schedule is varied and I travel a lot. When I’m home, it’s getting up and answering my emails. It fuels my energy for the day.”
You can meet Christopher in person at HustlaBall Las Vegas on January 19, 2014, where he is managing the entertainment on the main stage.
