He replied "I am definitely gay! I feel so much more comfortable being pushed around and submissive than anything, and I am always horny! Ask my boyfriend!" to the question "How would you describe your sexuality? Gay? Bi? Straight? Horny?"
You did a few scenes with Sean Cody. You bottomed in all of them. Do you prefer bottoming? All your SC scenes are great to look at. Were they fun to film?
It's funny because when I showed up to Sean Cody they thought I was a top. Anyone who knows me knows that's not true. LOL. Honestly, the staff was great, but it was very difficult working with straight guys. Many scenes were trashed because they couldn't perform sexually. One guy had never even kissed a dude before and I was his first everything! Kinda weird I thought. I never met a single gay guy that I shot with on that site.
Why did you leave SC?
I left Sean Cody for multiple reasons. I wasn't comfortable barebacking anymore, the scenes weren't fun to shoot, and my back tattoo caused some problems.
You said you were uncomfortable with filming bareback scenes. Are you finished doing that type pf work? Do you think models get pressure from companies and/or fans to go condom-less?
After awhile, my boyfriend and I decided neither of us were comfortable with me shooting bareback with anyone other then ourselves. We haven't since we made that decision. I don't think companies pressure us to do it; it's our own decision, but I do think I was very naive filming without a condom.
MARKETING PLOY? I received an email from Tim inquiring about the "real" status of the relationship between Casey and Connor. Are they really lovers?
Long time reader, first time emailer here. I would like to know if you could find out anymore information about Helix Studios' "Connor Kline" and his boyfriend Casey Tanner. I would like to know if they're actually dating or if its just a marketing ploy for the studio to have an actual stud in their ranks.
Tell us more about where you come from, what was your life before porn. In your Corbin Fisher video, you said you were studying communication. Was that true? Is it still the case?
I grew up in Southern California. Before I got started I was living in Mammoth Lakes, CA kinda dodging reality, snowboarding every day. Porn was never something I thought I would do. I moved back to SoCal for college and I was approached by someone from Corbin Fisher. Because I was working valet and paying for school myself I decided to give it a try, not knowing how I would perform. I never expected to be where I am today! As of right now, due to my heavy schedule I am not currently in school.
Was you work at Corbin Fisher your first sex scene ever, right? Do you remember how you felt?
Yea, Corbin was the first company that I worked for. I did a solo and a BG for them. For the first time it was definitely a little awkward, but the crew made me feel comfortable and the girl I worked with was super cool which made things easier.
Did you consider doing more videos for Corbin Fisher?
I was interested in working with them again, but not for the scenes they were asking of me. I actually thought they wanted to use me more for their straight site, but that wasn't the case.
What's your view on gay for pay?
Gay for pay? To each his own, right? It's just not something that turns me on, so I’ve never considered it.
How did your friends, family, ex girlfriends react to you becoming a porn model?
I have awesome friends that would support me in anything. My family is also extremely supportive. It took me a while to tell them, but when I did they took it well. As long as I'm happy they're stoked!
How was your sexlife before all this? Were you fucking hundreds of random girls or did you have conventional girlfriends? Were you an exhibitionist?
Haha no I was not fucking hundreds of randoms girls, I have no game haha. Before I got into porn I had a serious girlfriend for five years and although we did some crazy things together (exploring sexual peaks) we were never into having people watch.
Do you not care about people seeing you in sexual situations, or does that turn you on?
To be honest I don't even think about it. I'm a bit on the shy side so every once in a while things can get awkward, but I just try to find the humor in things and just laugh it off. After all, when you take the emotion out of it it's just sex, and it's "fucking" fun!
Logan Vaughn with Derek Parker from Gay Room (Nov. 21, 2012)
Q 16. You had this to say about 'bareback': "Nothing wrong with it at all, and I don't blame anyone out there who prefers to watch it over the protected kind. But I would personally never ever star in it. Of course I do it in my personal life, but unlike most of the other models, I don't hookup with random people. " Are you at all concerned about the fact that performers in the gay porn industry often do bareback scenes and then immediately shoot sometimes with condomed studios or the fact that a large percentage of gay porn performers are rumored to be HIV positive? What do you insist on seeing about your scene partner prior to a scene to protect yourself? Do you think California should pass the mandatory condom law?
LOGAN It doesn't bother me in the least, and I think the fear of becoming HIV positive is blown up far larger than the risk actually is. I normally don’t ask to see any proof about the other performer; I know that Fabscout has my back on that issue. Howard takes very good care of his models. We take risks on a daily basis even if you never shoot porn in your life. You;re more likely to catch something from a person in your private life than you are on set. And I'm very much against the mandatory condom law! Yes, I watch straight porn from time to time, I like the dirty girls, and it's very difficult to be all that dirty with a condom between all the actions. Not to mention there is always that "dead moment" when you rip the damn thing off. It's like it's not even sexual for that few seconds.
Q 17. I thought there was some amazing intensity in the scene between you and Jimmy Johnson for Men (you sucked great and got rammed pretty hard). Name your favorite scene partner… AND without naming or giving away the scene, blind item the WORST experience either filming or with a scene partner (again without naming names if it’s possible).
LOGAN I've honestly not had any bad scenes so far. There was this time not too long ago when I had 3 shoots in a row in LA, and for some reason, my ass was sore as HELL during that time. All of those scenes were rather painful, to say the least. So that time frame would certainly be considered the worst experience for me so far, but it wasn't anyone's fault. My favorite scene partner would have to be Tyler Saint. He's a super nice guy, very professional, and very caring of how you feel on set.
Q 18. Compare and contrast shooting a scene for a larger studio like Hot House versus an original content internet studio like Men.com or Cocksuremen.com? Also I believe that you have been directed by women before – how does that feel versus being directed by gay men or straight men? And please share what it was like shooting your first transsexual scene with the gorgeous and HUNG Jayla Marie for TSSeductions.com?
LOGAN There isn't really a huge difference in my perspective of the different sizes of studios. Of course, the smaller ones normally shoot in homes and the others shoot on sets. But I've not had any issues shooting with smaller studios as far as their professionalism. And even though I pretty much get owned every time, I really enjoy shooting for Divine Bitches. That's the only site I've shot for so far with an all-female cast. It's a very nice change. That scene was actually very fun, even though she was a lot rougher than what I was expecting, lol. It’s very nice for me to shoot with a person that is feminine vs a big hairy guy.
Q 11. Speaking of bodybuilding, your body has undergone quite the transformation. Again I don’t know if you read your own press, but there is a polarization of people GAGA over your new "ripped and shredded" look versus those who preferred your thicker, less defined look when those first few clips hit the 'Net. Director Ridley Scott once famously told Russell Crowe to stop getting defined on the set of "Gladiator" because "chunky is hunky". What inspired you to suddenly want to cut and shred the excess mass? BTW I personally think you are perfect any way, shape or form.
LOGAN Well, as stated before, I'm much happier and more confident now with how I look over before, but I'm never satisfied. One of my life long goals is to be absolutely massive and compete in bodybuilding. So I'm always looking to improve my look when it comes to my body. After seeing my first pro pics taken at the Fabscout HQ in Fort Lauderdale… I was slapping myself. I had attempted for 2 months prior to diet down a little because I knew I was about to start shooting my first scenes, and I failed miserably! I realized I didn't have the knowledge base to effectively cut fat while maintaining what I’ve built over the past many years of working out. I want to look OUTSTANDING, not average. Like the guy you could see on the cover of muscle and fitness, the type of guy that every person in the room stops and gawks at when you take off your shirt… and I so wasn't seeing that period in those first pics. So I hired a very amazing trainer to help build up my knowledge base, and to help me get into a better body. I know lots preferred the chunky look (much to my astonishment) but me and double chins don’t get along. I’m an extremely dedicated person, and I knew this trainer in particular was very knowledgeable, so when he wrote down what I needed to eat on a daily and weekly basis, I stuck to it to a T and kept track of every single macro nutrient and total calorie count for every single day for over 2 months. I really didn’t plan on getting as shredded as I did, but towards the end, I really started having fun with it.
Q 12. In a previous interview you stated that your diet and workout routine are "custom adjusted to my goals and genetics, so they won't work for just anyone". Can you discuss what it is your diet and workout routine entail? Is it metabolism based (a la Philip A. Goglia's revolutionary metabolism based diet and workouts) or is it more of the blood/health based (a la Blood Typing)? Something you created or a personal trainer created?

LOGAN Well, the diet I used to burn fat on was tailored to my genetics as a whole. Meaning how much muscle mass I have, what my current lifts were, taking into mind my current metabolic rate, etc. I was actually still eating a lot more than people would think. My diet (at that time) consisted of carb cycling. I would have a medium carb day, 2 low carb days, and one high carb day. My calories would be between 2500 and 2900 each and every day, spread out over 6 meals a day. Also my workout schedule included 4 days of weight training, 4 days of cardio, and 3 days of core work. Normally a cardio/weight training day would over lap and I would plan it so it was my high carb day, to maintain muscle mass, but the surplus of extra carbs would keep my body anabolic and really ignite my metabolism for when the carbs were cut in half the following day.
Q 1. Logan Vaughn [twitter] – It's hard to believe that you made your debut in May of this year with two rather stellar clips that had the 'Net and a couple bloggers in particular buzzing! Let me catch your reaction to the fact that many have repeated the following sentiments about your callypygous-ness: Commenters have called your ass "shockingly, perfectly round" and a "national treasure". How does that make you feel?
LOGAN Haha, it makes me feel really good! Who wouldn't enjoy positive comments like that? I do work very hard on my body, but am lucky to have good genetics, as well in the trunk region ;0)
Q 2. Ok…brass tacks: Here's a personal question – For as many positive comments you get about your gorgeous looks and amazing perfect jock butt, there are just as many negative comments about the fact that you are not exactly "porn hung", i.e. your penis is NOT the biggest monster on the block. I mean, people have been downright hateful and disgusting in their comments on blog sites (I believe one of your clips is even called "Small Cock Punishment"). Weigh in on this….What do you have to say to these haters? And more importantly do you think this has affected your porn casting or "typecast" you as a bottom?
LOGAN Anyone can hide behind a keyboard, talk smack, and still sleep feeling safe at night in their Sesame Street PJ’s, that's one of the fun things about the internet. I don't let it bother me, because even though I’m nowhere near satisfied with my body, I'm very secure in it. Also, one of the top rules is to never read the "comments" section unless you have a helluva lot of patience. I read them every so often when I'm curious, but when I do, I expect the worst comments possible. At least then, I'm normally rather happy seeing the comments. As for the scene names, I'm very business minded, so I know how the name often sells the product. I've now shot for the site director of the above mentioned scene twice now, and I know it's nothing personal, its business. But no, I don't think it has forced me to be a bottom in scenes, that was actually my choosing. I thought it the best business course of action to show off my "assets" to get me more work in the future.
Q 3. Sound off – What are your physical stats right now? Height, weight, shoe size, cock size, and…what’s the most you can bench? And the most you can squat?
Logan Vaughn's chat profile at Randy Blue
LOGAN Height: 5'9.5 Weight: 176.5 Shoe size: 10 Cock size: 7" I don't ever bench, actually. I've found dumbbells to be far more effective for me when eliminating the front delts so I can focus more on my chest. The most I've ever benched using dumbbells was 140’s for 7 reps back when I weighed 215 a few years ago, but I was very fat. And people are always shocked to know, that I rarely train legs…. Maybe 3 times a month max. The most I’ve ever done squatting in my life (going parallel to the deck), was 365. But that was also a number of years ago.
Q 4. Since your debut in all your interviews you have identified sexually as "straight", and yet in almost all of your candid interviews, you have hinted that your experience with women and solely women is what a) introduced you to the pleasure of anal sex and BDSM and b) inspired you to go into porn. Can you elaborate on the sexual experiences that opened your eyes to anal and/or inspired you to go into porn?
LOGAN Well, I first got the idea to try anal after reading various health related articles as a kid. One in particular, was talking about how to keep a healthy prostate to ward off ever dealing with prostate cancer. It was a very interesting article, so I looked online for more on the subject, and read as to how it could be very pleasurable at the same time. That set off the curiosity that lead to me (many years later) trying anal for the first time with a past girlfriend. I am always attracted to the "freaks", lol. I really go for the pierced, inked, crazy haired girls. And more often than not, they are sexual freaks as well =0) As for going into porn, that happened even later on when I found out I could actually make money doing private cam shows using skype and paypal. I networked enough that I made connections that eventually led to being signed with Fabscout.
Q 5. You maintain almost a paternal like relationship with super agent "Fabscout" Howard … what's it like having an agent? Discuss that in the context of the pros and cons of having an agent versus navigating the gay porn industry without an agent.
LOGAN Haha, yes I do. I love Howard and his company. The pros for me are: Not having to constantly look for scenes myself and set them up. This gives me time to do other things to make money in my personal life, as I’m very much an Entrepreneur. The company will have far more connections with far more companies, both big and small, that I don’t even know of. I don’t have to personally deal with the company, and risk being forgotten about. And I also enjoy having the title "Fabscout Exclusive Model". Some people may say "well, ya that's all great, but you have to pay them money out of your shoots, and you’re making less to start with because the companies have to pay Fabscout to book you!". Which is true, however, if you have a good enough look to get plenty of shoots through a company like Fabscout, then over a year's time, you would have made more money letting them do the work rather than doing it all on your own and not getting as much exposure as you could have. In the end, I’m making more by being with Howard and his company, than I ever could being on my own. And that's not even including the money I'm able to make in my private life because I don't have to focus on my adult work. There is one phrase I really love, that many rich people use, and it’s "Always pay the people smarter than you to manage your business". And in this case, they also have far more connections. So, the cut they get in the end is well worth the service they provide. It's very mutually beneficial.
This is part 2 of the interview with Colby Jansen [part 1].
Q11 It would seem that the normal trajectory…. not that YOU have ever followed the normal trajectory of course… but the normal trajectory of a porn star is to start in porn, branch out to dancing and then escorting. You started in escorting then ventured into porn. Do you still escort? And care to share any wild stories? Romantic clients? Alex Forrest (Glenn Close from ‘Fatal Attraction’) encounters?
I do escort, it was something I kind of fell into and certainly didn’t think I would actually enjoy. The funny part about escorting (and there’s a difference between that and hustling) is that there is very little sex involved. It’s hard to explain to anyone who doesn’t hire and isn’t an escort themselves. I don’t discuss anything that goes on between them and I, as I respect their privacy as much as I value my own. My branch into porn was basically because I enjoy sex and performing, I’m a bit of a narcissist and there is a decent amount of money to be made doing it. It’s 2012 and the world’s view on porn has changed considerably over the last 20 years, so it’s not such a huge stigma as it was. That said, sadly I don’t think my Senatorial Campaign has much of a future at this point!
Q12 Ok let’s get down to porn. In 2007 and 2008 you logged appearances on ‘RealityPornTheater’, a straight site (a blow job and a threeway) and then two movies over at Amateur Straight Guys. Looking back, how do you feel about those first few clips? Were you apprehensive at all?
Well the thing that you don’t know is that I was also doing webcam shows with girls through ifriends. I was hooking up with this girl who was a stripper at Camelot in DC and she got me into the gig with RPT. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, RPT never really took off, but it was a great experience. While I was there in Phoenix one of the actors mentioned how I could make some good $ with ASG. So, since I was curious (not that I needed the money that badly) and there was a decent pay day, I talked with Doug & Jay about filming and next thing I knew I was doing gay porn. I was very nervous about the gay stuff, the straight stuff was no big deal – the gay stuff was much more of a mind fuck for me as I really had limited interactions with guys at that point. Also, keeping a boner on camera in a room full of people that I didn’t know had me so freaked out I was afraid I might not be able to perform. Obviously, I did and it was great, but at that time I was still sorting out my own sexuality – so I didn’t really feel the need to pursue gay porn. Plus, it’s not like porn is the only thing I could be doing with my life.
Q13 Then you did a Kink.com BoundGods clip with one of my all time favorite porn stars, the very awesome sauce Trent Diesel, and later a Bound in Public and Men On Edge clip. An admitted control freak and dominant top (I saw that raging boner when you were flogging Trent and had him in stock), what’s it like to relinquish control and trust your scene parter? Discuss. (BTW that scream when he rubbed your nipples after having them clamped seemed awfully…..genuine)
That scene with Trent was fantastic, I really enjoyed working with him, he’s a great performer, he’s sexy and he’s super cool off camera as well. I feel lucky that I was paired up with Trent because he was so easy going and fun to work with. I was decently nervous, but I knew what I was going into. The nipple part was rough- that was an incredible amount of pain/pleasure to endure. The thing that you don’t see from the video is that the camera guy missed it the first take! So, that’s actually the second take. In one way I was ready for that time, but in another way it made it worse for me as it hurt so badly the first time, I was almost not even going to let Trent do it a second time. Giving up control for me isn’t easily done, but Trent and I had good communication and I was pretty into it – and all I kept thinking about was how nice it was going to be to get back (and get in) at him.
Q14 In addition, you logged appearances on the reality porn sites "Out in Public" and "Ungloryhole" followed by two stellar buttpounding clips on Men.com. And you seem very natural acting in the non-hardcore portions. That said, do you feel an appreciable and quantifiable difference between self identified gay scene partners and ‘straight’/gay for pay performers?
Honestly, I haven’t really had a big enough sample size to truly answer this question. I think that the guys I work with might think I’m gay for pay only, so I try to make it known that I’m bi. I think that makes it easier for them with me. It all comes down to chemistry anyway, I think that comes through regardless of gay or straight.
Q15 Compare and contrast your experiences with a studio outfit like Kink.com that appears to really craft, plan, shoot and edit its nearly hour long clips (and frankly has gay directors) versus say Men.com which appears to stockpile clips and release almost daily (and features female and straight male directors with a straight porn background).
Well, both studios are very professional and I don’t really feel much of a difference director-wise, as it’s gay porn anyway. Kink.com has their way of conducting business and so does men.com. At Kink, I’ve only worked with Van where with Men, I’ve worked with a few different directors, I’m comfortable with all of them and if I had an issue I’d raise it. Since I don’t, I don’t have much I can extrapolate on.
Q1 You have one of the most diverse backgrounds I think I’ve ever heard for a performer – Readers know you were actively deployed and in the Marines for 8 years, but tell the readers about your education (undergrad and current) and your sports background.
I suppose diverse is a good word for it, but my background is rooted in math & science. I have a BS in Physics with minors in Education and Mathematics (yes in another interview I said Chemistry, but I was attempting to be discreet about my private life). While I was in the Marine Corps, I specialized in imagery intelligence and combined my military and civilian education to pursue a career as an imagery scientist. Unfortunately, the reality of the defense industry is that you either drink the kool-aid or you’re blacklisted. So, basically because of my beliefs and lifestyle, that industry wasn’t the best thing for me. So, after a couple years of civilian contractor life, I quit and moved on. Right now, I’m doing an MBA program through one of the online schools. I had taken a couple classes at University of Toronto, but with my travel schedule, a classroom based education wasn’t the best fit for me. The thing about self-paced learning is that you have to have self-discipline and work ethic, otherwise your workload will pile up quickly and you’ll be in a frantic cramming state.
My sports background is varied, I grew up playing baseball, football and wrestling. I attribute a lot of my personality from my wrestling background. Wrestling is a team sport in a sense, but when it comes down to it, it’s you versus the other guy and skill and strength only bring you so far. Mental toughness and the ability to make your mind believe that your body can do more than it is telling your brain is something that has to be developed through years of drilling and training. It’s been that mental toughness that has helped me in my true sports calling, the sport of Rugby Union.
I began playing Rugby as a way of coping with not playing football. My fall evenings were usually filled with hard hitting football practices and getting all of my pent up aggression out. My Saturdays were devoted to the game, when I lost that opportunity in college, I was really depressed. I was recruited to the rugby team and the light went on at the first practice. There’s a funny story to what happened on the first practice I went to. I had no idea what I was in store for, so I was just tackling the guy who had the ball – I’m not that good of an athlete, but I am very good at running into people with reckless abandon. So, I hit the team’s captain and broke his nose, he jumped up and I figured it was going to come to fisticuffs – he put a finger in my chest and said that’s the way to hit! Then they brought me out and got me drunk and sent me home with one of the more promiscuous girls from the women’s rugby team. From that day forward, rugby would be one of the main focuses of my life. It has given me the ability to play all around the world as well as compete at a very high level. In the US, rugby is still an amateur sport, but I played in the USA Rugby Super League, which is the league that the USA selects the men who will represent our country in Test Matches and the Rugby World Cup. I was close to making the USA Men’s Rugby National Team, however that last step eluded me as I had a career and the competition to make the team is incredibly high. That said, my player resume is quite complete and I’ve had a great run. I’m now playing in lower division rugby in Southern Ontario Canada, but because of my left knee, I’ve put the game on the back burner for a bit.
Q2 Speaking of rugby, by last blog count, you noted that you’d actually been playing rugby (and shooting porn, yes?) on what you eventually discovered was a quite injured knee (!) How is it, buddy? What’s the damage and is surgery in the future for Colby Jansen?
I touched on this at the end of the last question – I recently had an MRI and I’ll know more soon. I shot Naked Combat vs Trent Diesel on that injured leg. The doctor believes I either have a hairline fracture of the medial tibia plateau or a fracture of the fibula. It hurts when I do certain movements, but nothing a little ibuprofen & whisky can’t sort out.
Q3 In my mind, you've drawn immediate fans for your proto-typically masculine looks, and I quote one of your co-stars, the adorable Cole Brooks from his Kink.com "Bound in Public" interview, who says: "Colby is extremely handsome…(a) beefy, masculine guy…yeah I love him!" We know you hate labels (as per a previous interview), but how do you identify sexual orientation wise?
This is something that kind of cracks me up. I’ve seen the comments on blogs and videos and damn there are some hateful people out there banging away on their keyboards. I’ve said in the past that I am “try-sexual” or “yes-sexual”. I like sex – reeeeeeally like sex! I enjoy women, men and male to female transsexuals. Does this make me “bisexual” or “gay” – I don’t know. I go to gay clubs and bars, I have sex with men on camera, I have Grindr & Scruff accounts, I also have sex with women and my wife Gia. So, to set the record straight? I’m truly bisexual and I really don’t give a fuck what anyone else thinks.
Q4 Sound off – what are your physical stats right now? Height, weight, shoe size, cock size, and….what’s the most you can bench?
I’m 6’1” tall, I weigh around 218lbs, I wear size 12 shoes, my cock is 7” in length and the most I have ever bench pressed was 325 twice.
Q5 You’ve stated before that you haven’t exactly been ‘out’ for that long…when or how did you discover that you would (quoting the Morningwoodclub blog interview) “never have that wild, raw, sweaty connection with a woman that [you] get…in a hot man on man rampage”?
Honestly, I never actually had any interactions with guys until about 2007. I had always thought about it, but I had never acted on it. I found Manhunt.net and ended up meeting a guy through web camming. When he and I hooked up – and it was just basically him giving me a blow job, I had no idea that an encounter could be so intense.
