Not Another Brick In The Wall

DPKing June 1, 2012 2

I’m still new to this porn industry, so the weekend at Exxxotica was the first time I got to actually spend time with porn stars. The big names were there: Diamond Kitty, Alexis Fawx, Abella Anderson, and Phoenix Marie. There’s no hype in their Hollywood glamour. These ladies are experts at what they do, showering their fans with love, genuinely smiling at every face, doing splits and poses on a hard wooden table for 7 hours straight with no cushion. Pure devotion.

Like I said, I’m still new at this, so I didn’t recognize every face immediately. The porn stars I recognized, but there were 15 other people in our booth. Standing near my side of the booth was an unassuming fellow in a button-up shirt and glasses. “Hmm” I thought. A button-up shirt at Exxxotica?? Must’ve just got off work.

My co-worker introduced us, and he presented himself as Brick. Gave me a firm handshake and a smile, genuine. I noticed the conservative glasses. The hair brushed to the side almost in a 50′s style. There’s nothing wrong with this look, but being at Exxxotica in Miami Beach, you tend to run into guys wearing all sorts of peacock accessories. Piercings, tight muscle shirts, at the very least a shirt with a dirty phrase on it. This guy had none of that. He was making no effort to draw attention to himself.

After some chit-chat, he hit me with this bomb. I asked him “What brought you out here?”, and he says “I’m here for the scene with Phoenix Marie.” I thought he was a production assistant, because no way was he a porn star. But he clarified. “I’m in the scene.” WHAT!? I was trying to translate this in my head into “I’m a porn star”, but the sideways haircut and button-up shirt were making that difficult. “You’re a porn star?” I asked. “Not really a porn star. More like a prop,” said the porn star.

I was wrong. This guy didn’t just get off work. He was at work.

I’ve seen a lot of porn videos since working for BangBros. I’ve noticed that a lot of the guys in the vids don’t fit the traditional conservative look. A lot of them have something alternative: penis-piercings, tattoos, at the very least a dangerous-looking face…almost like they were the loud kids in the back row at school that grew up to still be mischievous. Not bad. Just different.

Brick had none of that. He was just as much a nerd as I was.

With the hours at the booth, I found out more about him. Brick grew up in Mississippi, as evidenced by his slight southern accent and good manners. He moved to Miami because he fell in love with Rachel Starr. No joke. “Rachel’s the reason I got into porn,” he told me with a straight face. Interesting. She was only a few feet away taking pictures with fans. “That woman” I thought, “the reason this kid isn’t in Mississippi right now.”

The other porn stars were in their element, facing down hundreds of flashing cameras with unfaltering eyes. They grabbed the attention naturally, but the rest of us hovered in the background trying to get out of the way of the cameras.

It occurred to me that no one knew about Brick Danger. He was only a few months in the industry, and here at Exxxotica he was just another guy. But I was sure if people knew what he did with BangBros he would have more fans coming up to him. After all, I kept getting asked “Are you the BangBus guy?” which was creepy and flattering at the same time. They should’ve been asking Brick.

I asked him for a picture, and he said enthusiastically “Yea, but with Phoenix!” So he grabbed Phoenix Marie away from her fans and posed a Clark Kent shot.

An hour later, Phoenix and Brick walked into the back room to shoot their scene. The crowd cheered them on, and I couldn’t help yelling “GO GET ‘EM MISSISSIPPI!” as he heroically walked in to receive a blowjob. Here’s the video.

Despite the glam of porn, Brick didn’t seem to let it affect his Southern down-to-earth attitude. “Some guys’ heads get too big in this industry,” he said. And he told me how he met one porn actor that was offended when Brick didn’t know his name. “I promised myself I would never let this stuff get to my head.” I believed him.

Maybe it was that openness with which he spoke about anything. Or the fact that we’re both 23 and only a few months into this strange industry. Or that of all the people I’ve met at Exxxotica and BangBros, he was the most out-of-place “nice guy” I’ve met. Either way, after Exxxotica we joined my group of co-workers at a bar/lounge downtown.

The drinks were expensive, the music was terrible, but we were there, so we made the most of it. We drank on the dance floor and danced goofily to the awful music. Some of my co-workers weren’t down for being goofy, not in front of that many strangers. And I’m never the first one to be silly in a group. But next to Brick’s off-tempo steps and country-boy look, I felt as smooth as George Clooney. So we made fools of ourselves by mimicking a gay guy’s dance behind his back. If he wasn’t there, I would be doing this alone or probably not at all. This was more fun.

Later, we were back at the bar, and Brick went into scope mode. “I’ve been trying to scope this place for girls. There’s not much here,” he said as he sat down next to an attractive girl at the bar. “What are you talking about!? Look next to you!” I yelled through the loud music. She was clearly latina, so I thought I would have more luck initiating conversation. Plus, I wanted to be a good wingman. It was the least I could do after Brick had paid for our drinks.

I went to the girl, pointed at Brick and said “Can you guess what he does for a living?” (I was never good with pickup lines). She couldn’t guess, but it got us all talking at least. The girl worked at the Honduran Embassy in Miami, definitely a rising professional. Brick laughed when he heard that. “She won’t want anything to do with me, man. She’s a consul.”

Apparently he was right because the girls were talking more to me than to him. But before I knew it, I saw Brick dancing with a very short pretty girl. They danced the rest of the night, and at the end he told me “Man that little one wants to fuck! I can definitely help her!” This guy had shot a scene earlier that day, we’d been on our feet for over 12 hours at Exxxotica, and he was still in creep mode. His horniness was ridiculous. I figured it must be a prerequisite to porn acting…(a few days later, he would tell me he was at this young lady’s house helping her with her “stress”).

After 5 hours of this nonsense, I was in no condition to drive, so Brick manned the wheel. On the way we talked more porn; it’s like we couldn’t get away from this stuff. Or maybe we were still figuring out how to deal with it. I wasn’t exactly out in the trenches, I just worked with porn from a computer. But Brick was a true actor, fucking porn stars on roofs, in crowded rooms, and in their asses. I had to keep telling myself that. It was easy to mistake him for just another college kid with a normal life.

“It’s crazy. In high school I only slept with 4 girls. In the past 2 months I’ve fucked 30,” he told me. I could see how some guys would let it get to their head. Getting all that sex at once must make you feel invincible. The important thing to remember, as Brick said, is that “those girls aren’t really fucking you. They’re fucking their co-worker, and that could be anyone. Any idiot could be fucking them.”

We finally pulled up to his apartment complex and I got in the drivers seat, preparing for a bad ride home. Brick shook my hand, thanked me, and went home. I was left to contemplate the effects of the porn star lifestyle on a young psyche as I took the on-ramp to I-75. I concluded that if you’re prepared for it, like Brick apparently was, there’s very little effect at all.
