Interview with Porn Stars Cole And Hunter From Maverick Men

Those of us in Generation Y are very liberal, accepting, and progressive on a lot of topics, but for one reason or another, I believe those in the porn industry will always have a certain stigma attached to them.  Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a porn star?  I spoke with a porn couple, Hunter and Cole from Maverick Men, about their growing celebrity, aspects of their relationship, and what percentage of people that they believe watch porn.


Jeffrey Hartinger: As popular porn stars, do you get approached a lot? Is going to relax at a local gay bar even a possibility now?
 
Cole Maverick: Yes, we get recognized by guys everywhere we go and I mean EVERYWHERE - it's a bit crazy actually.  We have come to realize that gays are everywhere. I was having lunch with my mother at a restaurant and the waiter said very loudly, “Oh Wow, Maverick!” It was so awkward and my mom asked what it was all about. I told her, “It's a gay thing mom.” Recently we were in Utah in the Beaver mountains camping in the middle of nowhere with Hunter’s dad and came across a fan, too.

Hunter: I wouldn’t have it any other way; we get to meet so many people now and it’s a blast.  We’ve never had so many friends!  I’ve met fans in the most random places.  We really love it.

JH: For the most part, people watch porn to get off. How does it make you feel to know that, quite honestly, there are at least a couple thousand people jerking off to your videos and pictures per day?
 
Cole: I love that we can bring so much ecstasy into the world. Jerking off is truly part of who we are as men.  Everyone jerks off; someone once said that 95% of the population masturbates and the other 5% lies about it.  Your penis and your hand are in perfect harmony with your brain as you sit and stroke one out.  Our hand is our best lover; always there to help out in a time of need, no matter what.  It’s super flattering to think that we are responsible for all those people jerking off.  What feels better than an orgasmic experience?  The fact that we are the direct cause of that hot energy makes us feel great! 


JH: You two most recently released the book Maverick Men: The True Story Behind the Videos .  What was your motivation behind having it published?
 
Cole: We wrote it together because we get asked all the time how we got started and how and why we do what we do.  The book also shares how Hunter and I met.

Hunter: The book was a bigger hit than we expected.  We continue to get really amazing letters from guys and girls that have read it and love it.  I’ve been pushing Cole to write a prequel, a recount of his teenage years growing up in south Boston, and that project is just about finished.  I can’t wait to share those wild stories.  I’m always so mesmerized when I hear about Cole’s early years.  I know others will feel the same way.


JH: As gay porn stars in a relationship, do you two have any aspects of your personal life that you like to keep private?

Hunter: We get plenty of messages from guys that fantasize about having the type of relationship we have (or having one at all), and they always thank us for sharing what we do.  That’s a really sweet thing and it motivates us.  However, we do have date night once a week and we tend to keep that just for us.

JH: It seems like you guys are always traveling. What is your favorite city to visit?

Cole: I know Hunter will say Provincetown on Cape Cod because of the beach and I have to agree.  I also like LA and Miami, but there is no place like home, which is Boston. 

Hunter: Yeah, Provincetown will always be at the top of my list.  We got booked last year for Sand Blast Weekend in Asbury Park, New Jersey.  The Jersey shore is so beautiful and the boardwalk in Asbury is so fun to explore.  We just got invited back to Sand Blast this year on for the July 20th weekend.  

JH: If you had to clear up one misconception about those in the porn industry, what would it be?

Cole: Hmmm, the porn industry? I really have no idea since we aren’t really in the porn industry, per say.  We are simply two guys that love each other that share their lives in an open and honest way.  At the end of the day, we want guys to feel great about sex.  We want to show them that sex is more than just getting off; it’s about fun and communication without judgment and guilt.  Gays are as normal and fucked-up as any loving straight couple out there.  There is no difference when it comes to love; we are all the same and should be treated as such.

Hunter: Yeah, we don’t really work with the people in the industry so much, so our experience with that industry is a bit limited.  We have met plenty of people in the gay porn world and we’ve been welcomed with open arms into the family.  Attending industry events is something I always look forward to.  It’s so much fun having everyone in one place.
