My Interview with CockyBoys Exclusive Ricky Roman

There are many reasons I wanted to interview CockyBoys exclusive, Ricky Roman. Not only is he one of the hottest, most consistent, and popular gay porn stars in the business right now. Not only is he just physically adorable. But, I actually love hearing him talk about his career and the adult entertainment industry. He has such an interesting take, I wanted to pick his brain a bit about how and why he got into the industry, as well as get his thoughts on other issues. Enjoy!

KnowHomo:    You’ve been in adult entertainment for about three years now, what has surprised you the most about the industry?        

Ricky Roman: The thing that’s surprised me most about the industry has to be some of the realest generosity from some of the realest people I’ve met. In a space I expected to be very superficial (and it can be) I have met some of the most down to earth people.

KnowHomo:    Looking back, what is something you wish you’d known or a bit of advice you wish you’d been given before getting into the business?

Ricky Roman:  I think I knew this from the beginning but it made its self very apparent as time went on, one must advocate for themselves because no one else will.

KnowHomo:    Which was harder, coming out as gay or coming out as a porn star?    

Ricky Roman: It was definitely harder to come out as gay. I am the son of religious immigrants both from different countries, so you can imagine how fun that was. But I never stopped being true to myself. Coming out at 14 made coming out as a pornstar a cake walk. Although it is true not all of my family knows, I don’t think it’s much of their damn business. [laughs]

 

KnowHomo: I love the Pillow Talk segments that you do on your YouTube channel. People ask some really good questions and your answers are always thoughtful. What made you want to open yourself up to people that way?

Ricky Roman: My fans and people just interested in the industry so to speak have always expressed their curiosity and I thought a video Q&A would be fun. And it has been! I hope to hone my vlogging craft and develop it into something grand!

KnowHomo:    In one of those videos, or maybe it was in an answer to a project you did for a family member, you said that what drew you to adult entertainment was that you were always very sexual and that you enjoy being naked. You were about 19 when you started, which is pretty young. Did you view porn as a way to explore your sexuality? Was there anything else that drew you to the industry?

Ricky Roman:  I do view porn as a way to explore my sexuality absolutely. My first orgy was on camera. I’m a bit of a exhibitionist so it’s always been a fun job. Truth be told I’ve always had a passion for acting, at 19 when I decided to get into porn I figured realistically this is the closest I’ll ever being to a “real” movie star.

KnowHomo:    What’s the best part of being porn star Ricky Roman? The most challenging?

Ricky Roman: The best part of being Ricky Roman is setting a standard of sexuality that is uninhibited and unashamed. I want to help liberate people sexually as we live in such a sex taboo society. I hope I can help people realize it’s okay to enjoy what you like! To quote my boss, “There is no sin here.”

The most challenging thing is dating for sure. I had a few goes that really crushed me ultimately and I thought there could be no way I could be an adult entertainer and balance a “normal” relationship. With that said there are many things that aren’t normal about my relationship with my handsome boyfriend Michael and at this point I wouldn’t have it any other way. He’s been and continues to be so supportive of me and my endeavors professionally and personally.

[Ricky and Michael]

KnowHomo: How has being an adult entertainer impacted your personal views on sex and/or your personal sex life?

Ricky Roman: Being an adult entertainer has definitely liberated me sexually in a way I didn’t think possible. Sex is such a beautiful part of life. People confuse sex with love. Society teaches people to confuse sex with love. I don’t think monogamy is realistic. We are humans, we have the ability to think and have complicated thought processes, but at the end of the day, we are mammals, with carnal needs, carnal needs that can be quite enjoyable when indulged in.

KnowHomo:    Are you at all surprised by how popular you are as a porn star?

Ricky Roman: Popular? [laughs] I feel like that’s a relative term, not to sound snarky. I am very grateful for all the good vibes that get sent my way as this gig can be draining as well.

KnowHomo:    What do you think makes you such a compelling adult entertainer? Why is Ricky Roman such a fan fave, in your opinion?

Ricky Roman: Compelling? [laughs] I like that. I think that the space I work in specifically allows a personality to shine through as opposed to just being a sexual objects. Anyone who follows the Cockyboys models knows that each of us are boisterous young men in our own right and we create a unique dynamic that I think people find entertaining in more than just a sexual facet.

KnowHomo:    I have this theory that romantic comedies and other “date movies” give people, but mostly women, unrealistic expectations around relationships and porn gives people, but mostly men, unrealistic expectations around sex. What do you think?

Ricky Roman: I agree with both of the points you just made. Specifically with porn. I hate to admit that yes we are serving fantasy sex! There was a scene where I was getting plowed hanging off a wooden fence, howling with joy the entire time. I will admit that was fun but it’s just not very realistic. I’m not as noisy in my personal sex life. [laughs] 

KnowHomo:    Do you watch porn? If so, what kind? Any particular porn stars you are a fan of?

Ricky Roman: I do watch porn, not studio porn however. I just know how it’s made so it kind of takes the magic away, you know? I enjoy amateur stuff I find on tumblr to be honest!

KnowHomo:    Is there anyone that you’d like to work with that you haven’t? If so, who and why?

Ricky Roman: There’s no one that comes to mind particularly at this point. I’m just grateful for the work I get.

KnowHomo:    Are there any scenes of which you are particular proud? Any that you look at and think “that was NOT my best work!”

Ricky Roman: I have to say my very favorite scene was The Haunting part II. The role allowed me to showcase some acting although few words are said in the film. The storyline is timeless and the vision is inspired. It was my first big one at CB and I knew that I was in the right place because of all of the creativity involved in the project. There are a few not worth mentioning I look back on and think damn I could have done better. I always want to push myself to be better!

KnowHomo:    You are one of two, maybe three, adult entertainers of whom I can say I really enjoy everything I have seen you in. But I particularly LOVE your scene with Austin Wilde and your scenes with Jake Bass. How was it working with them?

[Austin Wilde and Ricky Roman]

Ricky Roman: Thank you! Both of them are very good at what they do. I was very excited to work with both at the time and our work together has proven to be fan favorites to this day, so that’s cool.

[Jake Bass and Ricky Roman]

KnowHomo:    As a fan or as someone who watches porn, is there something you’d like to see more of in the industry? As an actor, is there a type of scene, or something you’d like to do more of?

Ricky Roman: I’d like to see more feature films with explicit sex! Kind of what we’re doing at CB [laughs] I personally think it’s great as I love cinema and erotica. If both can be tastefully combined, why not?

KnowHomo:    How do you prepare for a scene?

Ricky Roman: I like to get a workout in before a scene to really get the blood flowing, and about 10 minutes with my handy dandy douche and I’m ready to go! [laughs]

KnowHomo:    Your dad is from Italy. Your mom is from the Philippines. And maybe because you speak Spanish so well and Roman is a common Latino surname, I think people often think you’re Latino. You’ve described yourself as racially ambiguous. Has that had any impact on your career?

Ricky Roman: I think my racial ambiguity leads to more of just that which is cool! I hate to think that aside from my tattoos my skin might be too dark to work for a certain European site that features no one a shade darker than a vanilla ice cream cone, but this doesn’t deter me.

KnowHomo:    Maybe, this is random, but I am wondering what are your thoughts on the recent takedown of Rentboy.com by Homeland Security?

Ricky Roman: I think the Homeland Security takedown is a calculated act of homophobia on the government’s behalf. I wonder why wait till now. They know this has been going on for quite some time, could it be that now would have been the most lucrative cash in? Why a gay site like Rentboy? Why just rent boy? Why not attack all escort sites gay and straight and everything in between? America’s got some funny priorities, I digress.

KnowHomo:    Do you have any career aspirations outside of the adult entertainment industry?

Ricky Roman:  I hope to bridge my name into a brand very soon, much of my heart is in entertainment. We’ll see. I just got a sewing machine, if I made some dope threads would you buy ‘em?

KnowHomo:    I am not sure I am fashionable enough to get away with anything you’d come up with, but I think lots of people would. Speaking of style - As um…” research” for this interview, I re-watched a number of your scenes and was really struck by the different looks you’ve sported over time. What if anything is behind your choices to try different looks? Are you ever worried that one look won’t go over well with fans or producers?

Ricky Roman: My looks are very much inspired by my mood or what I’m going thru. It can be frustrating with honing in on a look for a project that might not particularly reflect me personally but that’s not a huge deal, they’ve been very lenient with my choices be it hair or tattoos. My fans have been very supportive of my style choices for the most part. If they’re happy that’s super cool but at the end of the day I try to do what truly makes me happy.

 

KnowHomo:    Have you managed to kick that awful cigarette habit yet?

Ricky Roman:  I’m working on it! It’s the fucking worst.

KnowHomo:    I really want to thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

Ricky Roman:  Your questions were very thoughtful. Thanks, for having me.

Butterflies
Ricky Horror/Reader

***

Perhaps it was the way the slammed door, making the whole house shake, or maybe it was the way you heard him mumbling to himself, but from the moment you heard your husband walk through the front door, you knew he was angry. With a frown and a sigh, you pushed yourself off the rocking chair you had set up in the nursery. Even though you knew he wasn’t in his best mood, you felt butterflies come to your stomach. You made your way down the stairs, and into the living room where your husband, Ricky, was already busy tearing through the drawers.
“Honey?” you called out to him. “What’s wrong?” you asked, waddling towards him. He continued to rifle through the drawers.
“It was the guys in the studio. It’s like working with a bunch of middle school boys. I swear I’m the only adult in the band. And I tried to make your ultrasound appointment, but Chris wouldn’t let us leave until we got something done. Now we need to-” he stopped when he turned around and saw you. It was like all the anger melted from his face. “Nevermind,” he smiled softly, leaning in to give you a kiss. There were those butterflies again. They always happened when I saw Ricky or thought of him. After a soft, warm kiss, he squatted down, bringing himself eye level with your pregnant belly. “How are you, blueberry?” he asked softly to the baby inside you before placing a gentle kiss to the top of your belly. Blueberry was what you two jokingly called the baby. It was apparently how big the baby was when you found out you were pregnant.
“I picked up the cake from the bakery,” you told him, a small smile spreading across your lips.
“Did you cut into it yet?” he asked, looking a little nervous. Suddenly, you felt the butterflies again. they came more and more often lately.
“I wanted to wait for you.” You had ordered one of the cakes that was either blue or pink depending on the babies gender, and you two had finally decided to find out the gender.
Ricky went into the kitchen, pulling out two small plates and forks for the cake as well as a large enough knife, handing it to you so you could cut it open.
“You cut it,” you nervously said, passing the knife back to him.
“Okay,” he said, equal parts of excitement and nervousness showing on his face. “One. Two. Three!” he said, quickly cutting into the cake. You held out the first plate as he plopped down… a blue piece of cake.
“A boy?” Ricky asked excitedly.
“A boy!” you confirmed, just as much excitement filling your voice. There were the butterflies again. Your hand flew to your belly, hoping to help the nervous jitters relax.
“Are you okay?” Ricky asked you, placing a protective hand over your stomach, “Is the baby kicking?”
“No. It’s just like butterflies. It’s been happening when I get excited. Mostly when I see you,” you giggled a little.
“You know,” Ricky started, “I was reading up on one of those pregnancy books.”
“Aw. You were reading a book for me?” you cooed.
“Yes. Now listen. I read that sometimes, when the baby kicks, it feels like butterflies.”
Then, I felt it again. Ricky’s hand was still resting on my belly, and he must have felt it too, because suddenly the biggest smile spread across his face. “We’re gonna have a boy!” Ricky smiled, jumping up to kiss my lips again. “Now. Who wants some cake?”

TODAY gay bars are some of the most jovial parts of city night life. They’ll weren’t always like this. In the 1960s gay bars were ricky business for the owners and the patrons. From what I’ve gathered they managed to just barely exist by following these unethical, unwritten rules:

  1. Know the doorman or look gay, when he stares you down through the peephole, we don’t want to let in undercover cops
  2. On the weekends you pay $3 to get in n’ get drinks, we’ll pay off the police (as in bribe them to NOT shut us down, confiscate our booze, or arrest anyone)
  3. These things may happen anyway but we should get tipped-off as to when
  4. Queens can come in but only a select few in full drag; cross-dressing violates very strict laws
  5. Sign the members book when you enter; fake names will do but we want to look like a private bottle club
  6. You can dance, unless the main lights come on
  7. Lights mean ‘stop dancing, stop touching, police are coming’
  8. When the police show up, you line up with IDs in hand, ladies and queens go to the bathroom to show your parts to the cops
  9. Lesbians are welcome but should wear at least three pieces of feminine apparel to avoid possible arrest during a raid
  10. After there’s a raid, we’ll try to resume business as usual with a supply of hidden liquor though managers and staff will likely be carted off in patty wagons so there’ll be no one to serve it

This video explains how one very unique night in history changed gay bars and the queer community at large in the States and now across the world. 

TEENTOP Reaction: When they have a crush on you and your Bestfriend start flirting with them and you clearly look mad

anonymous asked:

Could I please get a Ricky Imagine where you are FaceTimeing him and the rest of the boys are teasing him, and you, on the other end?

 ”Hey, who’s that you’re talking to?” You heard Chris’ voice in the background.

“Non of your god damn business!” Ricky shouts back glancing at the curtain on his bunk. He turns back to you. “Sorry about that they are always hyper after a signing. They get food and sugar and gift cards and shit.”

“It’s okay.” You smile. You love the guys, they are Ricky’s brothers and sometimes you have to put up with their shit.

Suddenly there is a commotion on the other end and Ricky vanishes. You slide between his mattress and the wall hearing a scuffle.

“No! Get off! I’m talking to her! Fuck off! Chris don’t!” You hear Ricky but all of a sudden see Chris’ face.

“Hey, babe.” Chris says with a grin.

“Get off me, Devin! Chris give me my phone!”

Chris laughs and shows you Ricky being sat on by Devin. “Why can’t you share her with all of us we wanna talk too, wiener boy.” Chris says.

“Pass it here.”

Suddenly Balz is in front of you. “Hey, how you doing?” He takes a bite of his sandwich. “Ricky’s kind of held up so you’ll have to talk to us.”

“That’s fine just don’t hurt him.” You can’t help but chuckle.

“Hey, Devin don’t hurt Rick she wants him in one piece.”

Suddenly there is Ryan. “Hi.” He gives a smile.

“Hey, Ryan. How’s Allie.”

“She’s good at home with the cats. How are you?”

“I’m not bad. The washer broke so I can’t wash clothes until it’s fixed.”

“That sucks. I hope you get it fixed soon.”

“The repairman is coming tomorrow.”

“Good.”

Chris takes the phone from Ryan. “Make sure you wash that lingerie Ricky is so fond of.”

“Shut up, Chris you’re such a creep.” Ricky shouts from the floor.

Devin’s face appears. “Hi.” He smiles.

“Give me my phone!” Ricky demands.

“You’re tiny little boyfriend is having a tantrum on the floor like a baby. Dump him and go out with me if you want a real man. I grow an awesome beard.” Devin teases.

“Oh Ghost, you know my heart only beats for you but I’m with Ricky and with Ricky I will stay.” You play along dramatically.

The guys laugh and finally Ricky is let up and given his phone back.”

“God damnit!” He straightened his beanie. “I hate all of you!”

“Yeah, but she doesn’t.” Chris teased. “C’mon we’re going to get some food.”

“We can talk afterwards, babe okay?” You say.

He sighs. “Alright. I love you.”

“I love you too.”

He kisses the camera making you smile before vanishing.
