The porn superstar and Dark Alley producer (read the company blog here) has been cruising for sex online for 13 years. “I remember when Manhunt was a free beta test site in Boston only,” he says, “and I was one of the first 100 members.”
The Sword: What sites do you use now?
Owen Hawk: Manhunt.net and BBRTS.com.
TS: What are some phrases that grab your attention?
OH: Keywords like whore, slut, raw and anonymous.
TS: How about phrases that turn you off?
OH: I’m not attracted to profiles that are lists of things that guys don’t like — “not into this, don’t message me if you’re into that.” Those guys don’t know what they want.
TS: Do you cruise under your porn personality?
OH: My screenname is OwenHawk, but my pics are non-professional ones so people won’t think my profile is fake.
TS: Do you enjoy non-reciprocation scenes?
OH: Yes! One of my favorite things is when a guy leaves his door unlocked and is waiting on his stomach with his ass in the air and a bottle of poppers at his side. I’ve done this scene both ways. When I was younger and crazier I would sometimes lie down blindfolded and let guys come into my apartment, and I never saw them. This of course was before the Craigslist Killers.
TS: Do you ever turn guys away at the door?
OH: Of course — if they’ve misrepresented themselves in their photos, But I’ve gotten smart over the years to recognize these profiles that use fake pics — there are signs.
TS: Like what?
OH: Missing heads. Only body shots. Or a collection of close ups of body parts in separate pics — cock here, face here, torso here, etc. You gotta get the holistic view: full body and face together. And if they are scared of showing that stuff online, they are either 1. a celebrity or 2. scared. And neither of those two are any good in bed!
TS: Have you ever gotten turned away yourself?
OH: No. Maybe a few times sex stopped because it was awkward and we just gave up.
TS: Do you have tips on how to take a good cock shot?
OH: Yes. It depends on how your cock curves. If it curves up like mine does you have to shoot from below. Here’s an example:

TS: Is it possible to schedule a successful threesome online, or is it doomed to fail with one guy being left out?
OH: Yeah of course, but it’s a lot of work. I’ve organized gangbangs online but you literally have to spend hours to achieve this, even in New York.
TS: What does your profile headline say right now?
OH: “Sluts are hot.”
TS: Have you ever had ugly sex? Sometimes it can be hot. A guy who’s so revolting that he’s sleazy hot.
OH: Well I worked briefly as an escort so I have had lots of ugly sex. But outside of that, sex is more than pretty bodies, you have to get a feel for someone’s energy and chemistry. Thats the problem with the internet, is that it is very hard to get a feel on someone’s actual body-energy. You know, their vibe. That’s why sex parties are better for random fucks.
TS: Where are the best sex parties?
OH: Berlin. The Germans are dirty. Before a big party weekend like Easter or Folsom Europe, they’ll book a doctor’s appointment in advance of the party to get rid of the STD they know they’re going to get.
It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
