Brad Benton: The Gay Porn Blog Interview
Yet another porn star whose attention Mike and I were volleying for on the set of Wet Palms, Brad Benton’s captivating Southern charm and magnetic personality can effortlessly capture anyone’s attention. And he’s a damn fine actor-slash-porn-star to boot. If ever there was a Susan Lucci of gay porn it would be Brad Benton because he’s been nominated for like a gazillion GayVNs and Grabbies but to date has only won two — a Best Actor GayVN for “There Goes the Neighborhood,” and a Performer of the Year Grabby.

Day Job? Law school.
Hometown? Marietta, GA.

How can fans get in touch with you? They can’t. I’m elusive like Meryl Streep. They can contact the studios.
Do your parents know? Yeah. My sister sent me a magazine with me on the cover. She was like, “Don’t do that,” and I said, “You pay for law school, and I wont have to.”
How did you come up with your porn name? John Rutherford named me after Barbie Benton, Hugh Hefner’s first wife. Apparently she was very smart and an organized business lady. John said I reminded me of her — that i came across as a bimbo but was realy smart.
First gay experience? 13. Me and my boyfriend of 6 years.
Favorite porn sex scene? In “Scout Club” with DC Chandler. We were on a raft.
Corniest line of dialogue you ever had to deliver? “Golly, is that my aunt Minnie under there?” (from “Dream Come True”).
A sex act you haven’t tried? Fisting … watersports … scat. Anything disgusting or painful.
What do you think is your best asset? Personality.
What is your worst asset? I don’t like myself in pictures. I think I look awful. I look much better on video.
Worst habit? Busting out into song because I have Singing Tourrette’s Syndrome.
Celeb you’d most like to bed? Colby from “Survivor”. I love reality TV.
Last concert? Uh, Nine Inch Nails? No, Aerosmith.
Secret fear? Old people. Is that horrible? They terrify me.

Fav non-porn movie sex scene? “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central When Drinking your Juice in the Hood,” when he shrimps her and puts hot sauce on her toes.
Fave album to fuck to? I make so much noise that i usually don’t need anything in the background.
Can you cook? Fuck no. Why?
What’s next for you? I start covenant school next semester and I fuck on the first date. Ha. I don’t know. Hopefully Jet Set wont throw me to the curb and I’ll continue to work on Wet Palms. I start school back up in the fall and then, you know, I’ll make a million dollars and live out by the sea. Have a husband and children. Yeah, I guess I want a family.
