Pete Ross: The Gay Porn Blog Interview
Porn isn’t always the most hospitable place for redheaded actors. While certain actors (Will Clark, for example) can break through the Ginger Ceiling, they’ve traditionally been under-represented in favor of tan, blond twinks and brooding brown-haired daddies. Strange then that Pete Ross would face his fiercest attacks not from porn industry but because of it. After starring in a few movies, the then-flight attendant was tailed by private eyes and forced from his regular job at a major airline.
Pete Ross has embraced his outsider status with gusto — last year he launched PornRebel.org to help part-time adult stars fight discrimination in the workplace. (We’re just glad that he’s not chasing fellow red Blu Kennedy down the runway a la Naomi/Tyra.)
Birthday: June 23, 1980
Cock size: 7″ cut (and pierced!)
Single or taken? Somewhere in between ;-)
Top or bottom? Very versatile! My ‘topping” film debut was just filmed for COLT Studio.
What was your last non-porn day job?
Cowboy. I grew up on a horse ranch in Wyoming.
What made you want to be a porn star?
I never set out to be a porn star really. In fact, even after being involved with the industry this last year, I’m not sure I can call myself a ‘star” yet. I set out to make one movie as a way to shake up my life after a very tough break-up. What I discovered is that I loved being an exhibitionist. I have stayed in the porn industry because I found a fraternity of people that have overwhelmed me with a sense of belonging I had never experienced in my life. Amazingly this last year I have had the honor of working with some of the best directors including Chi Chi LaRue, Chris Steele, Chris Ward, Jerry Douglas, Brian Mills, Bruce Cam, Thor Stephens, Doug Jefferies and Scott Morris. I would have to consider myself one of the luckiest guys alive.
Any body piercings or tattoos? Oh yeahâ€¦a few. >grin< My ears, nipples, navel, a guiche, and my dick (apadravya). I also have a very small tattoo of two male symbols linked together, on my left ankle. I got it done on my 18th birthday. It made me feel so grown up and proud to be gay to get it done.
Does your family know what you do?
They don’t know the specific, but my parents are smart people. I think they know more about Pete Ross than I know. [Ed. Note: Pete brought his parents to the GayVNs in March — I think they’ve figured it out!]
What time do you get out of bed in the morning?
I’m a big night-owl! I seem to get more work done after the sun sets, so I usually crawl into bed after midnight and get up around 9am.
Favorite porn sex scene:
I hope this doesn’t sound narcissistic, but I get really turned on when I watch the final scene in Raging Stallion’s Passport to Paradise. I was the only white boy in a sea of Latin boys including Manuel Torres, Mario Cruz, Enrico Vega, and Miguel Leon. I was passed around from man to man, held down and pounded rough and long. (Just the way I like it.)
Favorite porn scene that you’re in:
I think my scene in Wet Palms (Episode 7) might be the hottest. It was the first time I ever came 3 times in one scene. My scene partner Nick Capra was totally cool too.
Most prized possession?
My friends and family. I know that they aren’t possessions per se, but I value them the most.
What are you like sexually in real life?
I love flip-flopping. My scene in Buckshot Production’s Beyond Perfect is the first time I think fans will have a window into my personal sex life. I think I definitely give as good as I get.
When was the last time you had sex off-camera?
I jacked off in the shower this morningâ€¦does that count? ;-)
Who is your favorite porn star of all time?
That would be Chris Steele hands down. No question! He is the total embodiment of a hot, masculine man, with a great sense of humor and a sharp brain. Being smart is very sexy to me.
What’s your favorite sexual activity?
Hard question to answer. My tastes seem to change from day to day. I love rough sex, sweet sex, romantic sex, being tied down, tying up a guy, some BDSM, topping, bottoming, etc.
I’m always willing to try new things too. Now I’m horny thinking about all of this …
Inflated egos make my dick go limp.
What’s the biggest misconception people have about porn stars?
Because all people usually see of porn stars is their work in magazines or films, people think that our lives are centered around sex 24/7. Don’t get me wrong, I have a very healthy sexual appetite, but there is so much more to me than that.
What’s next for you?
I will be doing a few appearances and promotions this fall and winter in San Francisco, West Hollywood, Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Las Vegas, and New York. I will be filming a couple of movies on the west coast. I just wrapped filming a pilot for a new ‘non-porn” show, and just started a non-profit website to raise money for the Free Speech Coalition. The site can be found at www.PornRebel.org . People can keep up with me on my website, www.PeteRossXXX.com
