Brad Patton Interview & Photos

Author & Curator: 
Gio
I am pleased to bring you my 2nd international interview with the extremely talented Brad Patton, www.bradpatton.net.  Brad was gracious enough to do this interview upon his return to Amsterdam from the USA where he has been promoting his latest movie release Beyond Perfect from www.Buckshotdvd.com.  In addition to porn, Brad is an accomplished figure skater and has traveled the entire world performing as such.  Over the past few years, Brad has gained a huge following as one of the top talents in gay porn.  His stunning looks, boyish charm and extreme endowment have made him one of the most desirable performers of our time… 
 
GIO Brad, thank you for taking time to do this interview. 
Brad Hi Gio, you are very welcome! 
 
GIO I understand you grew up in Australia and a number of other Countries, as your family moved around a lot when you were young.  Tell me about how moving around shaped you as the person you are today. 
Brad Well, having lived in 3 different countries with 3 different languages as a kid in school…I had the opportunity to learn so much that my peers weren't able too. I believe it has given me a good understanding and a deeper tolerance for different cultures. And what could be more important than this in today’s world. Just look at the lack of understanding that we have right now for anybody who is different and who doesn’t think like us!
 
GIO Very well said! You have been a figure skater since the age of 9.  You have competed internationally in this sport and through multiple injuries you have been able to keep going.  What do you consider your greatest accomplishment as a skater? 
Brad Well, it is not any title, that I would call my biggest achievement in skating. But probably when I came back from a dislocated leg and a fractured kneecap at age 24, when nobody thought I would be back on the ice again. Within a year of that, I had my first principal contract on a skating show!! But I really hope that my competing in Montreal for the Out Games will be my biggest achievement. I want to get out there and do some tricks that I haven’t done for years!!! 
  
GIO You spent a number of years performing with Disney On Ice, how was traveling all over the world with those shows for you? 
Brad Oh, I absolutely loved it!! I was at the perfect age to get out and explore the world, for myself this time! And being in a show like that, people there become your extended family! However after 6 years of it, I was sick of the hotel rooms, and the constant packing of suitcases!! But never sick of the skating, well maybe those 10am shows...haha... 
 
GIO Yeah, it can be tough being on the road all the time.  You have stated you come from a religious family, how was the coming out process for you? 
Brad Well my coming out was, at age 22. My family moved back to Australia, again. But I remained in Sweden. 3 months after they moved I ended up on my first skating show in Mexico!! And for the first time, I could openly be myself; this was a wonderful time in my life, just coming out, and traveling around the world. What more could a young gay boy want! 
 
GIO As a young man you have stated that you did not have your growth spurt until your later teen years.  When going through puberty, did you know that you were larger than average below the belt? 
Brad Oh God no!! I was such a small kid for such a long time. That I think I am scared for life, as seeing myself as a small kid!! Ha-ha... It was not until my first sexual encounter at age 22 that I realized that I was larger than the average male.
 
GIO What age were you when you had your first sexual experience? 
Brad 22... It was not good, and put me off it for a while, before my next experience with a man. 
GIO What made you decide to pursue porn? 
Brad At the risk of sounding crazy... I just knew it was something I was meant to do, and that I would be good at… 


GIO While you were living in Australia your first film was directed by the legendary Chi Chi LaRue for Falcon Studios, tell me about that experience and what it was like going in front of the cameras for the first time. Brad It was great!! Chi-Chi was so good at keeping me calm. But I had no nerves about it. As I said, it was just something that I knew I was meant to do!! I love being in front of the camera, to be watched, it turns me on!! By the way...That should be criteria for all who want to step in front of the camera. Do it for the right reasons!! 
GIO John Rutherford, (formerly of Falcon Studios and now with COLT Studio Group), named you a Falcon Exclusive right after your first film with them, what was that experience like for you? 
 
Brad It was very flattering! I had heard from my good friend Joe Foster what a great person John Rutherford was. And after talking with Chi-Chi, my mind was made up! John and ChiChi are both wonderful human beings, who I trust fully. They have never steered me wrong! 
GIO What made you decide to leave your “exclusive” status with Falcon after 2 years and pursue other studios? 
Brad I think I had gone as far as I could with Falcon. And well, I am 33, so maybe it was time for me to turn into a man!! I am not sure I could pull off that whole pretty boy thing much longer, ha-ha.... and what is more masculine than COLT! I am enjoying the change in my career, plus I am a do it myself guy, and like to be my own boss!! 
 
GIO Your latest release for Buckshot Productions is with another legendary name in Gay Porn.  Tell me about doing the film Beyond Perfect and becoming a Buckshot Man? 
Brad This has been my most exciting movie to date. And the release, which is this week, has me very nervous. I really hope that all my fans will love it! Becoming a Buckshot Man has been a big transition for me and a change of style to some degree. 

   
 
GIO How is your current promotion tour going for Beyond Perfect? 
Brad It’s been great! COLT Studio Group flew me to NYC for the premier at Splash Bar and to do a radio show on Sirius OUT Q with Derek and Romaine www.DerekandRomaine.com. I am actually home in Amsterdam now, after a month of traveling in the states. I am home to enjoy the Christmas season. But have plans for more appearances over in the US 2-3 month’s at time. 
  
GIO In addition to Beyond Perfect, I understand you are in Buckshot Productions Big Rig and also will be featured in COLT’s  Minute Man 25, both by COLT Studio Group, and being released next year.  Tell me about these films. 
Brad  Yes, I just shot a scene for Big Rig, up in Sacramento, with the very sexy "Omer", who is a 19 year old hottie from Israel!! It is the first scene that I have EVER shot in a bed!! Haha... I also shot my solo that week for COLT’s Minute Man series. They will be released in March, and Feb.

 
GIO What do you enjoy most about performing for live audiences? 
Brad Oh that is easy. See, I have a problem about being nude in public; I get really nervous because I know every time, that I will start to get a hard-on. This is why I never shower at the gym!! It just simply turns me on, to have people watching me! I Love it!!! The whole live web cam thing I do on www.BradPatton.net  is new to me, but I believe I am getting better at it. The guys seem to like it when I talk nasty... It is a lot of fun!! 
 
GIO Who has been your favorite co-star or stars in porn? 
Brad  Jason Kingsley!!! Marry me!! Ha-ha...ok, I have to stop saying that, or his boyfriend is going to hunt me down! But he is seriously a wonderful man, who just happens to live in S. Africa; with his man.... hmmmm  Also I would like to give special mention to Mr. Zak Spears, who has a special place in my heart...  
 
GIO If you could select anyone to be your scene partner in your next film, who would it be and why? 
Brad COLT Man Vin Marco!! Have you seen the man?? He is hot beyond belief.... 
 
GIO I totally agree!  WOOF!  Has there been a moment on set that stands out as funny or embarrassing that you can share with the readers? 
Brad Yes, I won’t name the actor, who knocked me in the head with a round kick, in the middle of a scene. He needed to take a chill pill! I think he was so nervous that it was making him all hyper. I can laugh at it know. But sure didn’t at the time.... 
 
GIO Ouch! Besides doing porn what are you passionate about? 
Brad Well obviously my big passion is skating, always has been and probably always will.... I am very passionate about design also! Right now it is my spare bedroom that is getting a face lift, well actually a full body tuck.
 
GIO If I were you ask your two closest friends what your best quality is, what would they tell me? 
Brad They might say, that I am always happy, and gets along with everyone... 
 
GIO What would they say is your biggest opportunity for improvement? 
Brad That I procrastinate......
 
GIO What do you consider your best physical feature? 
Brad My ass 
GIO Boxers or briefs? 
Brad definitely briefs, I need the support 
 
GIO Yes you do (laughing) If you could be any animal, what would you be and why? 
Brad A cat, I love cats, they are very independent animals, they take care of themselves, and don’t take shit from no one!! 

 
GIO Tell me what gay life is like in Amsterdam compared to the other places you have lived? 
Brad Well, Amsterdam is like a big village, so gay life here isn’t everything that people expect it to be. However Holland is one of the most tolerant countries in the world, and gays have enjoyed many rights here for a number of years that you still do not have over in the US. But in recent years there has been a rise in hate crimes, largely coming from the Muslim community here, and it has angered and scared many people. But it is still a great place to live. There is no "gay ghetto" in Amsterdam, as the gay population is spread out all across the city. Which is good! Integration is a large step to acceptance. Cities like SF, and NY, with there gay villages, as fun as they are, I think it does a disservice to the gay community. We are segregating ourselves!! 

 
GIO That is a very intelligent observation.  OK, we are getting too serious…What is your biggest turn on sexually and turn off? 
Brad Biggest turn on, confidence.... Biggest turn off, arrogance.
 
GIO Where is the most exotic place you have had sex? 
Brad Oh that is easy, it was a tidal pool, in Hawaii, with Lane Fuller, during the shooting of the Falcon movie Drenched.
  
GIO What is the best pick-up line ever used on you? 
Brad We have a sling and a dungeon at home!
 
GIO Do you get recognized in public often and how is that for you? 
Brad Here in Amsterdam not that often. Which is cool, I can go about my own thing. But when I do it is always nice, people are always respectful....  
 
GIO I am very impressed with your website www.bradpatton.net tell the fans what they can expect when joining your site. 
Brad Thanks! Well, it has been up for about 2 months now. And it is going great. I do 2 live web cam shows each week. Mondays, and Fridays at 3pm Pacific coast time, they can have a chat with me and watch me get it on hot and heavy!!... And I am busy right now uploading more material onto the site for everybody’s viewing pleasure!! Just put up some pics today from my live show at Splash bar in NY on the 10 Dec.

 
GIO What would you consider is your best film to date? 
Brad Beyond Perfect, no doubt. The final scene in this movie is the best scene I have done to date. When I saw it for the first time, I was totally turned on by it. That is the first time I have been turned on by watching myself in a film!!! 
 
GIO Do you watch yourself in all your videos? 
Brad  Yes, I try to learn from my past mistakes, it becomes more like a study session, ha-ha 
 
GIO Lights on or off during sex? 
Brad On!! If I am having sex with a hot man! Well then I want to see his sexy body!!!
 
GIO What is your biggest sexual fantasy yet to be fulfilled? 
Brad Hmmmm I still haven't got up the nerve to admit it to myself, let alone anyone else… 
 
GIO Are you single or spoken for at the moment? 
Brad Single 
 
GIO What qualities do you look for in a partner? 
Brad Honestly, sense of humor, and most importantly HOT BODY...haha, I have a body fixation. 
 
GIO What are your complete physical stats? 
Brad 6 foot, 32 waist, 190 lbs.  dick 8in, and as thick as my wrist....
 
GIO Since living and performing all over the world, what are your favorite cities and why? 
Brad Paris! Amazing architecture and parks, New York, the city has such an amazing energy. Rome, the wonderful cafes and museums and the history, Sydney, ahhh the beaches and laid back life style, Stockholm, the beautiful people, and all the water running through the city. 
 
GIO You won 2 gold medals in the gay games skating and are planning on competing in the Out Games in Montréal in 2006, what is your training regime like to get ready? 
Brad Well, I have just started getting back onto the ice, it will be a big change in my workout routine, I am used to going to the gym almost every day. And doing 4 days a week of upper body weight training. Well that is all going to have to change. It will have to be at least 3-4 days a week on the ice. And some days will have to be double training passes, to get myself prepared. I have my work cut out for me. Because when I do something, I do it full out. And I also want to prove something to myself at the games. 
 
GIO You are certainly a well rounded performer on film and on the ice, where do you see your career going in the future? 
Brad Wow, I really don’t know. I am just trying to concentrate on the now, and the next half a year. Things can change to fast in ones life; I am sure six months from now. I will want to be heading in another direction... 
 
GIO Is there anything else you would like to share with your fans? 
Brad yes, I am currently taking applications for boyfriends, ha-ha....

  
GIO Well I am sure there are 1,000’s of men out there wishing they could be your man!  I am sure there will be one that has the goods. Brad, thank you very much for taking time to do this interview and I wish you continued success! 
Brad  Thank you Gio, great questions by the way! Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!!

Florida's Best Clothing Optional Gay Men's Resorts

Life in the tropics is all about beating the heat. And what better way cool off than to hang out poolside without clothing? Florida has dozens of clothing optional resorts, but which ones are the best? Here's the Mark's List take on the 5 best (in no particular order).
 
In Key West check out New Orleans House and Island House. New Orleans House is located on Duval Street, right in the middle of all of the action. You can count on a great time poolside or in Key West's biggest Gay nightclub, Bourbon Street Pub. Island House is located on a quieter side street and offers amazing rooms, many of them opening onto the pool and patio. There's also an amazing pool side cafe serving up some of the best food (and libations) on the Island. In Fort Lauderdale, we suggest you get your Gay clothing optional groove on at The Grand Resort and Spa, which offers an upscale atmosphere with amenities that include spa services, poolside cabana bars and plenty of tanning lotion to keep your booty from burning. In Central Florida you can head out into the woods and catch some all over rays at the Sawmill Camping Resort. Sawmill offers cabins and plenty of places to park RVs or pitch tents. There's also a large heated pool, a dance hall, restaurant, several themed bars and plenty of trails to go "hiking" on.

Eric Leonardos Talks Life After ‘Finding Prince Charming’

The final episode of Finding Prince Charming began with bachelor Robert telling the remaining three suitors, Brandon, Eric and Dillon, that while in college he became an escort for many years. Looking back I still haven’t figured out why Robert kept Dillon around for so long. Dillon even realized that his connection with Robert wasn’t very strong, which ultimately led to his departure. 

For the last few weeks leading up to the finale the chemistry between Brandon and Robert was palpable. I thought for sure he would be the one Robert picked, but I was wrong as Robert picked Eric. We caught up with Eric Leonardos to talk about his time on Finding Prince Charming and what's ahead for him. Read the full interview: Eric Leonardos Talks Life After ‘Finding Prince Charming’

Adult Film Star Rocco Steele Tackles HIV Stigma

Although research and support for the HIV/AIDS community has come a long way since the 80s and 90s, a great deal of ignorance and stigma still exists—even within the gay community. With celebrities such as Charlie Sheen and Danny Pintauro (Who’s the Boss?) recently bringing HIV/AIDS into the entertainment headlines, perhaps now is the perfect time for a new, more enlightened conversation on the subject.

Mark’s List spoke with adult film star Rocco Steele, who has experienced his fair share of ups and downs with addiction and living with HIV.  He has, however, used these personal experiences as a catalyst to promote HIV awareness and education.
