||Last weekend I had the pleasure of
meeting and interviewing Scott Sloan
while he was in town performing at Boardwalk
and VooDoo Lounge. I photographed his
show at VooDoo Lounge and then headed over to Boardwalk for an interview and
photo shoot. At 41 years of age, Scott Sloan is making a comeback (so to speak)
as a live erotic performer and banking on his status as a
Colt Model to gain attention. As you
will read, Scott is dedicated to natural body building and he loves to perform
for gay audiences.
GIO Scott, welcome to Fort Lauderdale.
You have been out of the spotlight for a number of years, is this your first
time performing down here live?
10 years ago I performed down here. However, I do not remember the name of the
club; it is probably no longer open anyway.
GIO Yeah, clubs do come and go over the
years. Boardwalk has been around for a long time though, first in North Miami
and now here in Fort Lauderdale. How has it been performing here at Boardwalk
and VooDoo lounge this weekend?
SS I have had a great time. The weather has
been great and so are the beaches.
GIO You mentioned to me earlier that you
hung out down at the famous Elbow Room on Ft. Lauderdale beach, I assume the
libations were flowing?
Yeah, had a few beers and watched
some sports and the beautiful people.
GIO That is cool. So, you are known as
a Fitness Model and erotic performer, how did you get discovered as a
SS The only erotic modeling I have done is for
COLT. Basically I sent them my
photos over 10 years ago. The first shoot I did for them was back in 1992. I
sent them my pictures because I figured it would help me with going out and
doing my live appearances and shows at clubs by being a featured act on
GIO Gotcha, so your intent in modeling
nude for COLT was to get more gigs as a
feature performer in clubs.
SS Yeah, that is basically it and now I am
back after about 10 years.
COLT is known for guys with great
physiques and you do have a great build. What has brought you back to
performing liver after 10 years?
looks at his body and smiles) mainly my body. I looked at the other guys that
are on the road and performing live on the circuit and I felt that I could still
do it and do it better than them perhaps.
GIO So you are managed by
for you bookings, did you contact him to handle this for you?
He booked me 10 years ago and back then I would do 35 – 40 club gigs each year.
So, I have known him for many years and I sent him some new photos of me to
Email out to the clubs he deals with in hopes of getting some bookings, and now
here I am!
GIO You mentioned photos for
COLT, but I know you were also featured
in the very popular Legendary Bodies
video produced by them.
Box Art courtesy of
I was by myself in that video and just posing nude. I do not touch myself or
anything like that.
GIO Yes, you are one of the few
COLT men that has not done full solo or
hardcore video work, do you think you ever will?
SS No, that did not really interest me.
GIO How was it
performing on film for them versus doing photo shoots?
– Well I have shot pictures for fitness magazines and I have a portfolio of at
least 1,000 photos of various body building and fitness modeling jobs I have
done. So the COLT stuff is the only nude photos I have ever done and they were
great to work with. However, now that I am back in the game (so to speak) if
there are any clubs out that that want to contact me for a booking, I am game.
GIO Well that is good to know. I had a
brief opportunity to look at your website and it is very nicely put together.
Tell the readers what they can expect if they were to join your site.
Well I have a live web-cam on my house 24 hours a day, so they can watch me do
just about anything in my house. From eating, showering, hanging out with my
buddies shooting pool, watching sports, me sleeping and stuff like that. They
can see me posing on the site as well as I am getting ready for the world
championships in November. I am in pretty good shape right now and they can see
me getting better and better as it gets closer to competition.
GIO Which world
championships are you competing in?
It is the World Championships for Natural Body Building. Muscle Mania is the
name of the federation.
GIO You say Natural Body Building, tell
me about being natural versus taking enhancements?
Well first of all, I have always been 100% natural. The contest that is in
November is only 10 minutes from my house, so it is a natural that I do it to
begin with. I have been body building for about 28 years and I feel confident
that I can win this contest. I do compete in other contests where they do not
test for steroids, but I have always been natural. I also own and run my own
sports supplement website, made up of all natural enhancements that are not
illegal. That site is one of my main focuses in life, it is
www.GetBig4Less.com it is a sports supplement super site with over 2,000
products and 75 manufactures. I built the website and I do all the site design
GIO Very cool.
I know you also do production and website design for other clients.
SS Yes, I have a home business doing design for other people. One client was the
Playgirl Man of the Year a couple years ago and many others, including women. I
specialize in live web-cam sites for people as well.
GIO What is your best advice for someone
who is trying to get themselves into the best physical shape possible?
You have to get organized and stick to the program. For example, when you leave
your house, you need to carry food with you if you are going to be gone for a
while. Protein shakes are great for that. I was at a bar this afternoon having
a couple beers and when I left the hotel I knew I was going to be gone for about
4 hours, so I packed a Ziploc with 2 scoops of protein and some sunflower seeds,
and put it in my pocket. A couple hours later, I stopped having a been and
mixed up the shake with some water at the bar and got my meal, then I continued
drinking my beers. It is all about discipline. I mean, you do not have to go
to extremes; it just takes a couple extra minutes to be prepared.
GIO So, the diet
is the most critical part of having a great physique?
It is part of it. You also have to workout and know how to train. I do not
consider myself a body builder, but rather an athlete. When I go into the gym
to weight train, I do it at a very high level. I am 165lbs and I will dead lift
450lbs or do 400lbs on a squat. You have to be athletically strong and in tune
with your body as if it were a machine. It is not always about the heavy weight
either; it is about the form of your body while you are training. I alternate
between heavy and light days. You need to be strong in order to build muscle.
GIO That is very impressive. So let’s
go back full circle for a moment. You have not performed live for over 10 years
and now you are back out doing it. What drives you to want to perform live for
Well I enjoy it for one and also I know what these guys are getting paid these
days. I figured that at 41 years of age, I look just as good as the guys in
their 20’s and I know I can still perform well, so why not get back out and do
it! You saw me tonight at VooDoo Gio, compared to the other guys you interview,
I look pretty good right?
GIO Absolutely, your physique is great
Scott and for being 100% natural I applaud you.
SS Thank you! I am more of that typical guy you would see walking down the street
I suppose. My physique is more of the ideal than the exaggerated. I think I am
more relatable to the average person because I think they can attain a physique
like mine rather than a steroid induced body. I mean, at 41 years old most
people think I am in my early 30s and that is due to healthy eating and healthy
GIO Your skin
tone and complexion is great for 41, you look great.
SS That is real body building. The type of body building I do sustains your
youth. So hopefully I can motivate someone to be naturally fit.
GIO Aside from the money being enticing
to be on the road, what else do you like about it?
SS Mainly getting out of the house and traveling is fun for me. This is a personal
thing for me, but I am sure others can relate to it. I had an English bulldog
named Rocky for 11 years and recently he died. It was very tough on me.
However, now that he is not around, it is easier for me to get away and travel.
So, from that point I now have the freedom to be away from home and not worry
about my dog at home.
GIO I am sorry to hear about your dog, I
can totally relate. I had to put my dog down 2 months ago as well, she had
SS Oh my god, sorry about that. That is what my dog had too, so we can totally
GIO So what else
is new for Scott Sloan?
when I do the upcoming competition, I am sure that there will be some more
fitness magazine photo shoots and my goal is to get back on the covers again.
One of my previous magazine covers set the all time sales record for - For Men
Only Fitness Magazine, I would love to do that again! I currently do some
writing for the fitness magazines as well and working on promoting my supplement
website. Hopefully I will win the World Championship in my weight class. Now
that I am 41, I would like to be the first person to win the Masters and the
Open Division in my weight class. I think I have a good shot at doing it
because I do not feel any different than I did 10-15 years ago. I will also be
www.scottsloan.com with new pictures and a new design, so stay tuned for
good stuff to come. I also want to produce another fitness video that will be
catered toward teenage body building and those over 40 like me.
GIO Very good! Well you will be very
busy that is for sure. I also want to wish you the best in the upcoming body
building competitions, I am sure you will do well them all. Do you plan on body
building the rest of your life?
I got no reason to quit right now; I am just now figuring it all out. So I will
do it until I cannot any longer.
GIO Good for you! So tell me, being a
straight man, how is it performing in gay clubs for you?
everyone is always so friendly and they treat me very well. The club owners
always treat me very well and the audiences seem to be better in a gay club.
Not to mention, not many straight clubs hire male performers. I think gay men
appreciate another mans physique regardless of their sexual orientation and I
enjoy performing for guys who appreciate what I have done to get my body looking
the way it does.
GIO That is great to hear. So Victor
(Boardwalk owner) has taken good care of you then?
SS Yes, he has been great!
GIO Well thank you for taking the time
to meet with me, you need to get ready for your show here at Boardwalk. Have an
SS Thank you Gio, it has been my pleasure.
After the interview was completed and prior to his show at
Boardwalk, I conducted a brief photo shoot with him backstage. To see full
photos of his show at VooDoo Lounge and more exclusive photos backstage visit
the Gio Mad Paparazzi gallery which immediately follows this interview.
