'More than anything I like to please when it comes to sex': The Roger Kint Q&A, Part 5

Last summer the Bare Curious blog featured an interview with Roger Kint, a Londoner who documents his sex life on Tumblr at My Dirty Favourites and on XTube (username: rogerkint). The Q&A appeared in four parts: "Roger Kint, smooth London barebacker with a big PA: The Bare Curious Interview","How a London lad got to bareback a Norwegian amateur porn legend (The Roger Kint Q&A, Part 2)", "'Nothing beats fucking your cum into a tight hole or having someone shoot inside you': The Roger Kint Q&A, Part 3", and "Smooth London Barebacker on HIV and Doing Porn: The Roger Kint Q&A, Part 4".

When I noticed in February that Roger's Xtube views had exceeded a million views, I asked him if he wanted to do a follow-up interview, and he was happy to.

JASON: Last July when I was sending you questions for our first Q&A, I asked you a side question about views of your videos on XTube. You told me that you had one big "hit" -- a video that got thousands of views -- but that "none of the others have got more than a couple of hundred views though so god knows how that one became so popular." Today your videos often get thousands of views within days of you posting them, some of them have tens of thousands of views, and one of them -- "1 hour of me bareback fucking my mate" -- has close to 200,000 views. [NOTE: The first portion of this interview was conducted in early February 2013. In late February Roger took down all his Xtube videos for reasons to be explained in this Q&A. In April he changed his mind and has been restoring his videos one by one, including "1-hour non-stop bareback fucking" (formerly titled "1 hour of me bareback fucking my mate"), which already has more than 40,000 views after being re-posted for only three days.] In half a year's time, you've gone from being an obscure presence on XTube to being "XTube famous." 

ROGER: I think the term "XTube famous" is maybe pushing it. I always read things like that and "internet famous" as quite ironic anyway. :P

JASON: What level of traffic do you have on your Tumblr?

ROGER: It's very dependent on postings. It averages about 1,000 hits a day but spikes for 24-48 hours if I post something good.

JASON: How has your amateur-porn fame changed life for you, if at all?

ROGER: Life-changing? Not at all. I occasionally get a message on Grindr or online saying "I follow your Tumblr", which is usually a pleasant message, but it's not Iike I'm getting invites to the opera or ballet, unfortunately.

JASON: If you did get opera or ballet invites from fans, would you want to go?

ROGER: Probably. Depends on the fan :P I do like opera and ballet, though -- the old stuff, not the modern crap. "Swan Lake" or "La Boheme" -- definitely my sort of thing. Unfortunately the only opera I have seen is "Tristan and Isolde" and that is heavy.

JASON: Do you ever get recognized as "Roger Kint" when you're out?

ROGER: I don't think anyone has noticed me when I'm out, but then I'm rarely out other than at work or uni. I'm not a party person; I dislike clubs and hate dance, I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. So not a lot of opportunity to bump into anyone who might recognise me, I'm afraid. I do get a few emails though from guys who would like to meet up and some guys contact me on Twitter. I have met a few stunning guys that way so I can't complain. The more the merrier. :P

ROGER: You fucking Sampson Cawley was your most popular video for awhile [NOTE: Video removed for now; will update with a link when Roger restores it], until it was overtaken by "1 hour of me bareback fucking my mate". Sampie seems to have quite the following, and you breeding him seems to have increased both his "internet fame" as well as yours. You were a good team. ;)

ROGER: Yeah it was one of the most popular videos by far. Will have to get him back for round two some time :D  I hadn't realised that "1 hour of me bareback fucking" was quite so popular, I must admit. I'll have to have a word with Sampie as his tiara appears to have slipped.

JASON: Your fans always seem to want fresh content, and you seem happy to oblige. Has the act of filming your sexual adventures become integral or even essential to your sex life?

ROGER: No not at all. I still don't film at least half of the sex I have.

JASON: But you've posted so many videos that it seems that whipping out the camera must be second nature by now. If you can't document a hook-up, other than that being obviously disappointing (in that it delays your ability to update your blog and XTube channel), does it diminish the thrill for you somehow?

ROGER: Again, not at all. I do like to film my hook-ups to keep my Tumblr updated but really that is why I'm doing it more than anything else. More than anything I like to please when it comes to sex and I guess the blog is a less direct way of providing pleasure to people, so that's what I enjoy about it. I don't get off on the idea of people watching me; I get off on getting people off. Camera or not has no impact on how good the encounter is.

JASON: That you "like to please when it comes to sex" really comes through in "Hung cock seeding my hole." [NOTE: Roger has removed this video for now. If it is restored I will update with a link.] You're such a great, vocal, enthusiastic bottom in that video. You told me last summer that you're primarily a top, and most of your videos show you topping, but do you feel like you're getting in touch with your inner bottom as you meet new guys to fuck around with and experiment with your sexuality?

ROGER: I feel like I should be a better bottom. I love the idea of it, but I just don't enjoy it as much as other guys obviously. Hopefully I'll get better!

JASON: I doubt the chap in "Hung cock seeding my hole" had any complaints. He seemed quite pleased with your bottoming skills, and you seemed to be enjoying yourself too. Speaking of that guy, he's outside of your normal tastes (smooth twinks). Though we don't see his face in the video, judging from his voice, he seems older than your usual hook-ups, and there's even a sort of "daddy" tone to how he talks to you about using your hole.

ROGER: He was a bit different from my normal type but not as much as you might think. He is in his mid-twenties, so younger than me, he was slim and had a nice big cock... that always helps. The talk I sort of went along with but it does nothing for me. All the talk of "boy pussy" I find quite cringeworthy really. Still it was fun.

JASON: You humored his daddy talk? I believe that's recommends you as a good bottom! ;)

In January and February, along with videos in which you top, you've also posted three in which you get bred -- "Twink breeds my hole and fucks his load into me" and "Raw fucked by black cock", in addition to "Hung cock seeding my hole". [NOTE: Links to these videos will be added as Roger restores them on his XTube account.] So while you may doubt your bottoming skills, you seem quite keen to keep getting fucked and bred. What does getting topped raw do for you, as opposed to topping raw? What do you get out of taking a top's cum in your arse that makes you want to keep doing it?

ROGER: I think it all stems from the desire to please. It still has to please me too (I am not into pain in any way at all) and I have to want to please them (guys who are fucktards really turn me off) but what better physical indicator that you have pleased someone than them cumming in your arse? There is no better sight in the world than watching a guy cumming on a tight smooth hole and fucking it deep into that hole.

I do like getting fucked, but only raw. I'm not entirely sure if it is a latex or lube irritation but safe sex feels quite uncomfortable for me and hence I almost never bottom safe.

Anton Dickson, London barebacker and Treasure Island Media porn star: The Bare Curious Interview, Part 1

Anton Dickson is an artist and performer living in London. Fans of bareback porn may know him from his appearances in four Treasure Island Media films directed by Liam Cole: "Pounded" (released July 2009), "Wild Breed" (May 2010), "Full Tilt" (November 2010), and "In The Flesh" (October 2011). Anton also performs in a Cole-directed scene in "What I Can't See 3" (April 2011) and appears in the forthcoming "Slammed." He writes the weekly "Chronicles of A London CumPig" column for T.I.M.'s blog, publishes his own blog on Tumblr, and tweets frequently (@AntonDicksonX).

He is a former classical ballet dancer (he appeared in Matthew Bourne's critically-acclaimed all-male production of "Swan Lake" and has performed with the Swedish Royal Ballet, Ballet du Nord, the English National Ballet, and others), works as an architect (he's chartered/registered with the Royal Institute of British Architects), and operates Atelier A-Z Photography, a studio and creative services firm that he founded under his real name, Anton Z. Risan.

Anton has also appeared in videos from other bareback studios, including Raw Fuck Club ("Gut Feelings") and Raw Reality ("Real Big Dicks" and "Bareback Backpackers").

Here is Part 1 of Anton's first-ever in-depth interview:

JASON: Tell me about working with Treasure Island Media and Liam Cole.

ANTON: I've worked with Liam in his films for the last four years, and since December 2010 I also work part-time in the Treasure Island Media London office. Before meeting up with Liam I worked for other smaller bareback porn companies and before that I did mainly "safe" films and a few straight films.

JASON: With Liam, is there a "casting couch"? Did you get to breed him to prove your performance skills before getting cast?

ANTON: Hehe, no, Liam is very professional, and he had already seen me in other films. Remember, I've done porn since 1998, I think it is. Since I started in the porn industry I never had to "prove" anything. People are usually very professional, and I haven't experienced the casting couch myth.

JASON: I can't imagine the self-discipline Liam must have to have all these hot models around and then to be on set and watch them fuck each other. How does he keep from joining in?!

ANTON: Hehe, that's something you need to ask him.

JASON: Okay, I will! So what does working in the T.I.M. London office entail?

ANTON: My role at the T.I.M. office is providing admin support to Liam as much as I can manage time-wise, which includes sorting out model applications, maintaining databases, ensuring the computers run okay, sorting out expenses and tax issues, helping organise shoots, etc. All in all, a very busy small office.

JASON: As for your life outside of work, I noticed that in your dudesnude profile under "practice safer sex" you answer with "Never." With dudesnudes I've found that the other options for the "practice safe sex" question are never quite what they seem. "Always" usually means "Some of the time." A lot of guys who choose the "Most of the time" answer actually mean "If the other guy insists." And guys who answer "When appropriate" actually mean "Practically never." So cheers to you for answering unequivocally!

ANTON: Hehe, that analysis of the meaning of the safe sex options seems probably correct. Although I'm sure there are some guys out there that only have protected sex, though in bigger towns they seem far apart, lol.

JASON: When did you decide to always insist on bareback?

ANTON: After doing a lot of bareback films and also having partners — as in boyfriends — that I barebacked with, I got so used to it that nowadays I find it not stimulating to have condom sex. I prefer to be upfront with what I look for and that is bareback in the fucking department. Although I don't always fuck, I do like a good blowjob, too. Deepthroat, of course.

JASON: I know from your T.I.M. "Chronicles of A London CumPig" blog that you love a good bareback fuck and you also love shooting your load in guys' mouths and swallowing their loads too. By the way, speaking of partners, over time in your blog you've gone from describing Dean Monroe from being your "best friend of all time" and flatmate to your "husband." Did you guys get gay-married?

ANTON: Yeah, correct, we are legally civil partners for many years. We are not a couple as such in the "traditional" sense, we are more like soulmates. Dino is a very private person and I respect that. I've known him now for 15 years, and I know he doesn't like me talking too much about it, so that's all you're gonna get, hehe. Meeting Dino was like finding a long-lost brother and best friend and soulmate.
15 years in April 2013.

JASON: Congratulations! And of course I won't ask more questions about this....

Let's discuss your various professional roles. Your Twitter bio lists you as a "Swedish (mix Croatian) TIM bb Pornstar, Photographer, Architect, Producer/Director & ex Dancer based in London." Is that in a particular order? Meaning, do you consider your pornographic work to be most central to your identity, followed by the others?

ANTON: No, it's just in reverse chronological order — well almost. I was a dancer, then an architect — and still am — then a photographer/videographer, etc., and all along in the background I was doing my porn acting and gogo dancing and stripping stuff. Just basically me being me, lol — a naughty Swedish/Croatian man enjoying life to its fullest expression possible.

JASON: You do seem to be enjoying life....

Outside of your professional porn work, I love the videos you've been posting here and there like the "KUK" series and the short film "Azrael." "Azrael" is so beautiful. You're the star of it — along with a bottom whose face we never see — but did you also direct and edit it? It's extraordinary.

ANTON: Well, thank you, mister, you are very kind. Yeah I directed/
produced/filmed/edited all the "KUK" series — more to follow — and "Azrael" also. I am very happy that you like it. "Azrael" was especially close to my heart at the time I did it, and meant a lot to me.

JASON: The "KUK" series videos are very beautiful aesthetically, but the "Azrael" video really stands out for its story and the exquisite visuals and editing. It's intensely erotic and moving too, especially given the the subtext that the title "Azrael" suggests. I think there are so many layers of meaning to it. I notice more things about the piece each time I watch it. It's the rare short film that's worth watching again and again.

ANTON: Thank you. It was a culmination of a lot of things on my mind at the time, and I needed to get them off my chest somehow.

Part 2 of the interview coming soon!

Smooth London Barebacker on HIV and Doing Porn: The Roger Kint Q&A, Part 4

As previously noted — in Part 1 and Part 2 and Part 3 of this interview — Roger Kint is a Londoner who documents his sex life on Tumblr at My Dirty Favourites and on XTube (username RogerKint). That's Roger in the photo, about to take raw cock up his hole.

The Bare Curious Interview: Roger Kint, Part 4

JASON: You seem to have a pretty clear understanding of not only the benefits of bareback sex, but the potential downsides. Last month a reader of your Tumblr asked, "You're doing a lot of bareback sex ... what sort of precautions do you take to prevent yourself from catching HIV?" You elaborated on your point of view and how you try to minimize exposure to HIV, and then said that it boils down to "a matter of judgement and calculated risk." That said, regarding HIV and beyond, any more specifics? For instance, are you vaccinated against Hepatitis A and B? Do you have any advice for guys who have very active sex lives like you do, and occasionally or frequently bareback — not just about avoiding HIV but avoiding other STDs?

ROGER: Yes, I'm vaccinated against both Hep A and B. I pay attention to a couple of barebacking sites, partly for meets, but mainly to keep an eye on who claims they're safe but isn't and who is always looking to get fucked by a dozen guys in some random club. It helps avoid what I see as the higher risk people. I think you have to just outright ask if some is HIV positive; not just say "are you clean" but poz or neg as well. No one is going to be offended by such a question. Then you just have to get a feel for how risky they are.

Ultimately, if you're going to bareback you're taking that risk to a much higher level than playing safe. I went out with a guy who was poz for a while, and if it hadn't been for that (and we played safe obviously) I don't think I would bareback as much now. But in that time I came to accept that I was probably going to catch HIV sooner or later. I do try and avoid it, I am careful, but sooner or later I wouldn't be surprised if I got it.

Ultimately, though, anything someone says about precautions they take when barebacking are just post-rationalisations for their behaviour.

JASON: I always say that the most important thing to emphasize is to get regularly tested, to visit the clinic on schedule for check-ups, and all that. It's all about knowing your status and taking care of your health no matter your HIV status. What many men who bareback don't quite understand is that it's actually safer to get bred by a poz top who is on meds that keeps viral loads undetectable, than it is to be bred by men who bareback a lot but whose status is "unknown." Men who bareback a lot and have converted but aren't on meds will likely have a high viral load — making them more infectious — by virtue of not taking care of their health and taking the proper meds. Whereas it's much harder to infect with an undetectable viral load.

ROGER: Yeah. I don't play with undetectable guys still, but maybe that is a stigma I need to get over. I need to do more research on it first I think.

UPDATE: Roger has researched the issue and has written about it on his Tumblr. Our exchange above took place on August 10, but on August 26, after Roger posted this video ("Hot couple take turns fuck my hole bareback"), an anonymous reader asked him, "I thought you didn't take poz loads from guys, but I see that you're okay doing it now. If I may be so bold, why the change of heart?" Roger offers his answer here and follows up in two posts: "Playing with HIV positive people" and "Playing with HIV positive people - Part 2."

JASON: In terms of your videos, what would you like to do next to top what you've already done?

ROGER: Where next? Well I wish I was able to produce better videos, but I'm not a creative person and struggle with aesthetics. What I really would love is to do some pro shoots, so if you know anyone put in a good word for me. ;)

JASON: I wish I knew some pro porn studios in the UK, but I don't. There are a number of pro studios in the US that I think would be interested in you, like Bare Twinks, but they have plenty of guys already who are based in the states, and I don't know how much money these sorts of studios have to fly talent in from foreign lands. ;(

Do you know Treasure Island Media? They're based in San Francisco, but I know that one of their most prominent directors, Liam Cole, is based in London and he regularly shoots there. He directs very horny bareback porn videos, and he's cast men of all body types, from daddy types to slim boyish types like yourself.

ROGER: I have heard of TIM but not sure to be honest. [UPDATE: Since the publication of earlier parts of this Q&A, and shortly after this portion of our interview was conducted, Roger studied up on Treasure Island Media and actually met with them in London to discuss... opportunities.] The few contacts I have had with possibilities in porn ended up going nowhere just because they were so unreliable. I had three photoshoots set up that either got cancelled last minute or they just never turned up. Very frustrating so unless they show some interest in me I'm not wasting too much time on the porn industry any more.

UPDATE: In the time since Part 1 of this interview was published on August 1, Roger's bareback videos on XTube have exploded in popularity as he's added more clips and as his notoriety has grown and grown. His videos have now been seen more than a quarter million times
, with most of those views coming in just the past several weeks(Thanks to all the new viewers who have been discovering Roger's videos from Bare Curious!) Studios interested in working with him, kindly inquire within.

"Nothing beats fucking your cum into a tight hole or having someone shoot inside you": The Roger Kint Q&A, Part 3

As previously noted — in Part 1 and Part 2 of this interview — Roger Kint is a Londoner who documents his sex life on Tumblr at My Dirty Favourites and on XTube (username rogerkint). That's his smooth, pierced cock in the photo above. He's @RogerKint84 on Twitter.

The Bare Curious Interview: Roger Kint, Part 3

JASON: How often do you need to cum?

ROGER: I cum probably two or three times a day on average. More at weekends.

JASON: You've got a video on XTube captioned, "First time I had a raw cock inside me, and it felt amazing as his spunk shot inside me." That was literally the first time you got fucked bareback? When did it happen?

ROGER: It was last summer. It was the first time I got fucked bareback and one of the first times I got fucked at all. I had tried it a few times before but it never did anything for me. Most of the time it still doesn't, so I don't bottom often.

I got it on video mainly because I was thinking I don't bottom much at all and I will not be barebacking much either, so it will be a rare event worth saving. I never thought I would do it that often, even as a top.

I almost regret it, as now safe sex just doesn't feel anything like as good. I'm too used to how good raw sex feels. I still do play safe with the majority of people I hook up with, and the sex is good, but nothing beats fucking your cum into a tight hole or having someone shoot inside you.

JASON: I definitely understand. It's like they say, "Once you go bare, you never go back."  ;)

Well, you do still have some wrapped-up sex, but as you said, it doesn't compare. I liken wearing a condom to kissing with a plastic bag over your head. The loss of sensation and intimacy is tragic. I even find it hard to watch condom porn because it only reminds me of that loss of sensation and intimacy. Do you watch bareback porn?

ROGER: I do watch mainly bareback porn now. Safe porn just doesn't do it for me as well. I love the idea of a guy seeding a hole. Having a tight young guy bred by fat cocks, fucking cum into him.

Regarding intimacy, for me that has nothing to do with sex. I have sex purely because it feels good and I like to please, so condoms are just a barrier to greater pleasure. I'm not much of a romantic. :P

JASON: You're a newly single man. Tell me about the best sex you've had recently.

ROGER: There's a guy I have spoken to on Twitter for some time and he was down in London at the weekend. Met in Chariots and had an awesome time. We fooled around for a while and then when I couldn't hold back anymore I shot a load in his tight smooth hole.

He wanted me to lick it out of him so I did, and then turned round and he slid his hard cock into my hole. He fucked me hard from behind until he shot a load in me. It was so horny. Wish we could have done it all again!

Hopefully we will again soon.

JASON: Taking turns breeding is the hottest! Even hotter that you licked your load out of his hole. What'd you do, just swallow it? Or spit or kiss it into his mouth? Been meaning to ask, are you into kissing?

ROGER: Not into kissing really. A lot of people aren't good at it, and there are better uses for my mouth than that. ;)

I licked it out and ate it. It was pretty hot. His hole was amazing.

JASON: Hot. Did you know in advance of actually meeting him that you'd be barebacking? Was it agreed in advance? Or did it just happen?

ROGER: No, I wasn't even sure we would do anything. I had made up my mind to go and then found out he was going to be there so was hopeful, but not expectant of doing anything with him.

JASON: Also, for a guy who mostly identifies as a top so far, you seem to be getting bred more often lately. Are you getting in touch with your inner bottom?

ROGER: I am mainly top, but mainly because bottoming has never felt good for me. However, recently I've discovered that I enjoy it bare. Still don't enjoy it with a condom, though.

That reminds me of a message I got recently. During a discussion about the hazards of barebacking, someone sent me a private message saying why barebacking was dangerous, etc. And if I wanted to enjoy bottoming more and play safe then I should try taking some hard drugs first. I could barely contain myself at such a ridiculous suggestion.

JASON: That is crazy. Get fucked up on hard drugs and then have "safe sex"? Like that's gonna happen.

It's interesting you've discovered that you enjoy bottoming if you do it bareback. People talk about how annoying condoms are for the top, that's a given, but a lot of bottoms experience extreme discomfort when getting fucked by a rubbered cock.

ROGER: I think it might be that I'm allergic. Haven't been tested yet but I wouldn't be surprised.
