Derek, where are you from and how many years have you been a porn star? I’m Mexican from Cuernavaca, Morelos and began my porn career in January 2016.
Why are there so few Mexican Porn stars? It is because few dare to take the criticism they will face from the Mexican society and even the gay community itself. Personally I am very fortunate to have the support of my immediate family.
We have seen too many sad deaths of many famous gay porn stars who could not deal with the pressure of the short lived fame in a very fickle industry. How do you deal with the pressure? I regret the deaths of my colleagues, in my case I am a very focused person heavily centered around my family and friends.
- I separate my professional life from the real me.
- I have an strong soul and I like to have healthy fun.
- I do not use anything that damages my body,
- I feed on positive people
- I think we should separate reality with that famed fantasy world.
What do you see yourself doing in 5 years? I see myself full of life being firm with my goals, I want a more relaxed life in with my dogs, my house and my business. I want a normal and quiet life, although it is difficult because now I live in Canada and fortunately my fame is increasing.
What advice would you give to anyone considering a making a career of the porn industry? My best advice if you dare, yes it will be difficult. The biggest thing is to change that mentality of those who criticize porn stars and overcome the criticism in being one. Being a porn star is just a job and everyone, no matter what they do, deserves to be respected.
It is very difficult to have a relationship in the industry. Are you in a relationship now? I had been single 5 years. I tried to go out with guys but it was difficult for them, so I decided to take a break. I needed a partner to understand and love me for who I am and respect my decisions. So now I am dating a French guy who knows everything about me and supports my decision. He lives in Montreal and I in live in Toronto so now I’m happy and I hope everything works out.
What is a huge turn on for you sexually, apart for when you are working? What sexually do you enjoy apart from the work aspect, what kinds of scenes, guys, etc. I am attracted to intelligent gentlemen with a mature mentality. I am an ass lover. In the industry I do not choose who I perform with. The producers have their strategy and they see the best actor for you. They look for the fame of each actor when choosing the combinations. I enjoy doing real, believable scenes. I am with Men.com and I feel very happy with this company as they let me direct and do my part for a better end production.
Have your considered being a producer? If you did, what kind of gay sex scene would you create and film? If I produced, I would like to do series with gay themes for YouTube, not the typical ones we know about the group of gay friends, but I want to take my life a reality series so people understand how difficult it was to start in this industry.

- the rejection faced because of your work
- the friends that criticize you

What is your thoughts of bareback in the porn industry? I enjoy bareback and think it is exciting. Companies should pay attention to the health of their actors and accurate tests to verify actors’ status.
