“I’m happy to be alive, independent, successful, not insane, and not addicted to anything,” said scruffy gay porn model, Greyson Kent.
With luck being against him, like a phoenix, he rose above the ashes. Eventually Grayson Kent would find himself entering the world of adult entertainment.
“The first time around, I was simply going with the guy I was dating at the time, in order to ensure the porn company who contacted him wasn’t actually some psycho,” said Greyson Kent. “When we went to meet them, they invited me to participate too, and it was fun. We filmed a couple of scenes with them, but then went our separate ways.”
Eventually Greyson Kent would return to the adult entertainment industry, after making a connection on Grindr with another porn company.
“My best scene to date was with Zeke Johnson,” said Greyson Kent. “There was so much natural chemistry. It was supposed to be a condom scene, but halfway through we just say, ‘fuck this’, and ripped the condoms off. It was intense, spontaneous, and really hot.”
While scenes are scripted and the director maintains control, some of the best moments in filming are impulsive. But just because those spur-of-the-moment situations come up, doesn’t mean working in the industry is always fun and easy.
“Rejection in any venue sucks, but it keeps you humble, keeps things in perspective,” said Greyson Kent. “Even though it may be one of the hardest things about the industry, it’s probably also one of the best things.”
“Don’t ever do anything that you aren’t completely comfortable with,” explained Greyson Kent when asked for his advice for guys interested in getting into the adult entertainment industry. “Don’t compromise yourself. Don’t let anyone bully you into anything. Be ready, and fully comprehend, that once it’s on the net, it is absolutely out of your hands, your control, and that it is forever. If you have any reservations about that whatsoever, porn is most likely not for you.”
As for Greyson Kent’s career in the industry, he plans to continue working as long as he can find work and he finds it fulfilling.
“I have no exit strategy, as porn isn’t my main career or source of income, not do I ever intend it to be,” said Greyson Kent. “That being said, if the industry decides to make me famous, I won’t complain. If that ever happens, I’ll reexamine the need for an exit strategy at that point.”
