So here is our interview in full please enjoy and don’t forget to support Buddy
BENDER: Hey Buddy! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to sit down with us and answer a few questions.
BUDDY: Anytime my man, I’m honored to do this interview with you. You guys have worked with quite a few big names in the industry and I am excited to be a part of Explicit List.
BENDER: So, how’s it going Buddy? I hope you’re having a good day!
BUDDY: Busy!! We have been shooting non-stop, 14+ hour days for the last week! But honestly, I can’t complain. I’m really enjoying it.
BENDER: Let’s get down to it, shall we? What made you want to get into the adult entertainment industry as a male performer, besides the obvious, the whole getting paid to have sex with hot chicks and all?
BUDDY: I’ve always watched porn and have always wanted to do it, be a performer. So intrigued in fact, that I snuck into the AVN awards back in 2012. I’m equipped, have the look, and the confidence to make it far in this industry. So why not? Right?
BENDER: I love your stage name, it really fits your look. It’s pretty obvious to us here at Explicit List how you came up with it, but can you please tell your fans and those who are not familiar with you how you came up with your stage name?
BUDDY: Haha, why thank you. I hope it stands out! That’s what I was going for. Well back at the auditions for the show, I was struggling to think of a name. So, a few big name, industry gents, got together and helped me out. So I guess you could say it was a joint effort. Hah.
BENDER: Now Buddy it’s not exactly a parents dream career choice for their child to become a porn star, they usually want their kids to come home and say, “Mom, I want to be a doctor”, “an astronaut”, or “a firefighter”. So, how did your family handle the news when you told them you wanted to be a porn star?
BUDDY: Not surprisingly at all, everyone in my life was very supportive. I’m a grown man, and will make my own decisions. Its nice to know that I have all of their support and no one judges me.
BENDER: We spoke on the phone a few weeks ago. And of course I checked out your YouTube channel. My first impression is that you’re a pretty hip cat, you have this keeps looking cool look and attitude about you. How important do you feel it is to have the right look and attitude in order to be successful as an adult entertainer?
BUDDY: That’s a great question! Look at all the big name male performers in the industry, they all have “That look”. They’re all very easily recognizable. So going into this, I told myself that I need to stand out, that I need my own look. So I took my personal style, and threw in some swag, suspenders, and a bow tie, and bam! Buddy Hollywood was born.
BENDER: Now we mentioned your YouTube channel, you really put a lot of work into promoting yourself and I believe this is necessary to be successful in any business. How do you feel this has helped you? Can you tell us a little bit about what you put into this? You obviously have a lot of passion.
BUDDY: Thanks! It’s all about branding, right? I wanted to record my entire journey of The Sex Factor, from prepping for the show, to behind the scenes on set. So every good “series” has multiple things going for them. One is an awesome name for the series, and another is a kick ass Intro. So I came up with “Building an Empire.” Because, I’m going to use my penis to build an empire. Catchy right? They also have amazing content and great editing. So, I grabbed my GoPro and started recording everything I could, and throwing episodes up on YouTube. I film and edit all content, and for only editing for about 5 months now, I feel like I’m doing a great job!
BENDER: Now I know you snuck in to your first ever AVN Awards back in 2012, but what was it like to be sitting there as part of the Sex Factor cast with such stars as Tori Black, Lexi Belle, and Keiran Lee?
BUDDY: It was an unbelievable experience! We walked the red carpet with some of the biggest names in the industry! The attention and spotlight on us was insane. It was great exposure for the show, and for all of us. Probably one of the greatest moments in my life.
BENDER: Speaking of Sex Factor, can you tell us something about the process and how this came about, you being involved with the show, and what has it been like?
BUDDY: Most definitely. It’s fairly simple actually, you go onto the website, fill out an application, and submit some photos, etc. Then you gotta go through an extensive interview process and other requirements for the show. I.E. Testing, age verification, and so on. Of course, you need to be able to “perform” at the auditions and impress the judges to make the cut. I was told about the show from a certain someone in the industry, and she said I had what it takes. So I applied! Ha! It’s been amazing. It’s almost surreal. The crazy thing is, I’m so comfortable doing this, and it comes very natural.
BENDER: I know you can’t tell me too much about the other cast members on the show but what can you tell us? You are still in the running right? Cause we’re rooting for you buddy!?
BUDDY: Oh yeah, I’m most definitely still in the running! I have a good chance to win this thing. There’s no doubt in my mind that I won’t.
BENDER: Okay, now I have to ask. Of course the interview’s about you, but I need the inside scoop here Mr Hollywood! What are the judges like on the Sex Factor? Can you break it down for us? Here’s your chance to kiss the judges butts, if you know what I mean.
BUDDY: They are some of the biggest names in the industry. So getting advice and coaching from some of the greats is a chance of a lifetime. Many male performers come into the industry inexperienced and not sure how to perform on camera, so getting an Ivy League education from Kerian Lee is about the best thing for an aspiring male performer. Oh, and of course, I have a school boy crush on Lexi Belle, so I can’t complain about seeing her all the time. Haha!
BENDER: When we spoke on the phone, you really have a realistic idea about what you’re getting into, becoming an adult film star, at least that’s the sense I got and I’m a pretty good judge of character. Can you tell us about the pressures mentally in performing in front of a camera and a crowd of people? Everybody in the world seems to think they can do this job and we both know it’s just not true. No matter how well endowed you are, it takes a certain amount of mental fortitude, if you will.
BUDDY: It is extremely nerve racking at first. To have never done something like this before, and be thrown into it, with about 20 people behind the scenes and multiple cameras. It takes a pure mental mind game to zone them out, and just be your confident self. Keiran told me to just focus on the girl, and the girl only. That bit of advice helped a lot.
BENDER: When you were at the AVN’s this year you got to interact with a lot of veterans of the adult entertainment industry besides the judges of Sex Factor, can you tell us what that was like?
BUDDY: To be able to network with so many talented people in the industry, was probably the best thing to have happened to me. I got my name out there, and got to meet some of the people that I follow on Twitter. At the end of the day, they are all normal people, with normal lives, and I love it!
BENDER: So what is the best advice that you have got since entering the adult entertainment industry and who gave it to you?
BUDDY: The best advice I have gotten came from Keiran, Lexi, Remy, and Tori. We were all hanging on set and the subject of testing came up. They said to always be safe, double check your co-talents tests, and make certain of them before you commit to the scene. The last thing you need is for the industry to do a moratorium.
BENDER: If you could work with anyone in the adult entertainment industry who would be your dream co-star?
BUDDY: That’s a tough question! There are so many talented people in the industry. But If I had to pick one, it would be Bonnie Rotten. She’s such a freak, and I think we would compliment each other very well on set.
BENDER: What would you tell someone if they ask for your advice in getting into the adult entertainment industry?
BUDDY: I don’t know if I can really answer that question yet, I’m just barely dipping my feet into the industry, and still learning every day. But if your comfortable with your body, your look, and your sexuality, and want to get into the industry, then just do it.
BENDER: Has being involved in the Sex Factor changed the way people look at you, and if so, how?
BUDDY: Absolutely, it has given me recognition and notoriety. Basically put a face to the name, and shows that I have what it takes to make it in this industry.
BENDER: Okay Buddy, this is a pretty serious question. What are your expectations for your career?
BUDDY: I don’t like having expectations. If you don’t make any, then you’ll never be let down. I plan to be a big name though, to be nominated for an award next year, and be casted to work with some of the greats.
BENDER: I know that we are one of your very first interviews and I was pretty impressed with you after we spoke on the phone and viewing your YouTube channel. I know that you have worked extremely hard trying to get your name out there and we really respect that. Doing interviews is a big part of being a star so can you tell us a little bit how it feels to do your first interview, I know I was extremely nervous myself the first time I interviewed anyone.
BUDDY: Surprisingly it comes natural. I think I was made for this 😉 I’m stoked to have done this interview for you guys.
BENDER: Okay, it’s time for another serious question. How hard do you feel it would be to balance your professional life as an adult film star and your personal life?
BUDDY: I think it’ll compliment each one very well. I’m a perverted fuck in real life too, haha!
BENDER: Now I know you have a very unique look. Is this something that came naturally to you? Is it an extension of your personality or is it something you had to work on?
BUDDY: I try to dress my age and also throw in a little unique swag into the mix. I think I have great style and love to show it off, and honestly it comes natural. I do take tips from a few female friends of mine as well.
BENDER: You have a lot of tattoos, once again part of that really great persona that you project. You’ve got some serious charisma kid, so can you tell us, do your tattoos mean anything to you personally and what was your first one?
BUDDY: It’s all one off pieces of art that no one else in the world will have, your body is a canvas, and I love to express it. There’s no real meaning to any of them, and my first one was the sprocket on my elbow. I love them all and plan to have many more.
BENDER: Alright Buddy, once again another serious question and this is important I feel because it’s important to think long term. Do you have any goals outside the adult entertainment industry?
BUDDY: I want to produce and direct, to one day have my own production company and win some awards.
BENDER: What about hobbies, can you tell us what Buddy Hollywood is doing when he’s not on The Sex Factor, hanging out with porn stars, or getting tattoos and making YouTube videos?
BUDDY: Haha, I have many. I like to shred, hit Brian Head and Big Bear. Ride motor cross and race cars. I never played sports when I was younger, I just raced cars and ride dirt bikes. Adrenaline junky at heart.
BENDER: Okay Buddy, I’m a tortillas bad speller, we kind of joke about it. [Edit: Yes I proofread this and had to leave that one in.] My good friend, Jasmine Jae, likes to give me crap about it all the time. Recently I asked you to write some articles for us on your experiences so far in the adult industry; can you tell us what you have in store for us?
BUDDY: It’ll be a little bit raunchy, about some on set action, and off set as well. I’ll throw In a little bit about my red carpet experience and about the expo, and the judges too. I think you’ll enjoy it very much.
BENDER: With Sex Factor and all I asked earlier where you stand with the show but now I want to know, we want to know, how can your fans support you on the show? Who do we have to bribe? How can we vote and who do we have to threaten so you can win, because I think you got what it takes, you’re a really cool cat.
BUDDY: Thanks man! I really appreciate that. So, it’ll be a vote based elimination process. The details of how to vote haven’t been announced yet. So in the meantime, if you wanna support me, hop on Twitter and follow me. @buddy_hollywood
Also tweet @thesxfactor and tell them you think I got what it takes to win. Tweet the shit out of me! Help me get thousands of followers. I will love you all long time!
