Hans BerlinGerman beauty Hans Berlin hit the gay porn scene in 2012 under Lucas Entertainment, but his family’s understanding – or lack thereof – of his new career in the USA might surprise you.

“I told my parents when I went to the US that I am a dancer, like from Magic Mike,” Hans said. “I’m thinking of telling them, but why? When I’m home, I can just be me, and the whole world is behind me.”

That’s part of the truth: Hans also makes a living as a dancer. His parents aren’t aware of his new job, but not every family member is in the dark.

“I’ve only told my older brother. He lives a pretty regular life. He still lives in our hometown. He’s jealous of all my travel and all the sex I have,” Hans said, adding that his brother is straight.

When asked about the future, Hans revealed that he’s using his porn star experience to write an off-Broadway musical, Porn – The Musical, about gay porn.

“I’m writing a musical about my whole experience,” he said. “I’m going to New York to meet with a Broadway producer. I’m hoping to use all my experience to make it a success.”

Industry executives warn stars against relying solely on their porn careers for income, so Hans is playing it safe by continuing to dance and take on new endeavors like Porn – The Musical. Still, he wishes he’d looked into the gay porn industry sooner.

“I like the stage. I’m a Leo,” Hans said. “I’ve always thought that gay porn would be interesting and fun. The whole stigma and how it could affect my life stopped me from doing it.”

There will always be people who are against porn or who think less of porn stars than men and women in other careers, but Hans doesn’t seem too worried about the stigma any more.

“Most of the gay guys and some of the straight guys think, ‘wow, he gets paid for sex with hot guys,’” said Hans.

When asked about his best scene partner, Hans had no problem naming one hot guy.

“I like working with Jessy Ares. He’s one of the guys I most enjoyed working with, and I became friends with him,” he said.

From Germany to America, dancer to porn star, and porn star to playwright, Hans’ personal greatest achievement seems surprisingly simple.

“My biggest achievement,” he said, “is living my dream and living my life the way I wanted to live it.”

Hans’ contract with Lucas Entertainment has ended, and he’s now a free agent. Get your hands dirty with the latest issue of DNA Magazine, featuring a two-page spread of and interview with Hans.
