After publishing Luke Cassidy’s Porn Star Kiss-and-Tell last month, I contacted Slade, Luke’s favorite porn star hook-up, to tell his side of the story. “What [Luke] said isn’t true,” Slade told me. While I had him on the phone, I also talked to Slade about chronic masturbation, statutory rape and Mormon missionary sex.
The Sword: Hey Slade.
Slade: Hey. What are you wearing?
TS: Jeans and a T-shirt, what are you wearing?
SL: I’m in my bottom jammies, doing laundry.
TS: What did you think when you read Luke Cassidy’s kiss-and-tell?
SL: I didn’t know about it until Luke called me because we talk all the time and we’re very close. He said, “Hey you should thank me because I gave you some publicity on The Sword.” I called him back and was a little upset about it because, well, let’s just say that events did not take place the way he described it. At all. I understand that he was trying to embellish the story to please the fans, because it all does sound really hot, but needless to say, Titan Media would be would be be the last studio where you’d be able to get away with something like that. Yes, there was a lot of chemistry between us from the beginning, and on the last night everyone saw me walking over to his room with my pillow. But Titan is very professional — from the directors to the guy who hands you the condoms — and one of the reasons why they bring their models back is not only for looks but also for being respectful.
TS: I think you’re lying to protect your profession, which would be understandable.
SL: No, what he said is not true. He said that every time we were alone we would fuck or that we’d sneak out of the house. That never happened. We didn’t fuck each other off-camera during the shoot and the two times we left the house it was with Titan’s permission.
TS: It sounds like it’d be hard to restrain yourself.
SL: Well, we were there shooting porn, so it’s not like we didn’t have the opportunity to be physical with each other. I mean, when it was time to do our scene, all I needed was him running around in his little underwear and I was hard right away. And Luke and I are very good friends still. Look at his bubble butt — how could I stay mad at him?
TS: Do you masturbate on set?
SL: Well I remember when I first started doing porn I would stop masturbating a few days beforehand, and it’d be hard to come. But I learned that to be able to come on command, it’s easier if I keep masturbating regularly. I kind of masturbate a lot.
TS: How often?
SL: 5 or 6 times a day. Sometimes 7 or 8.
TS: Wait. What?
SL: Yeah, so if I know I’m flying to California for a shoot I don’t worry about that, I just keep masturbating regularly, and so far I’ve been able to come whenever I’ve needed to come.
TS: What’s the most number of times you’ve ever masturbated in a day?
SL: I would say 11.
TS: Did you have to get a skin graft?
SL: No actually, I’ve always masturbated a lot, my friends always made fun of me. The time I masturbated 11 times I was sick, called in to work and just sort of laid in bed and masturbated 11 times. But it always surprises me that the more I do it the better it feels, and there’s always plenty of cum. If I masturbate 7 times I’m able to cum all 7 times, still shooting sometimes over my chest.
TS: Are you masturbating right now?
SL: Maybe! I’ll masturbate at work as well. I’ll definitely do it when I wake up before I get out of bed, then again in the shower when I’m getting ready, and then once or twice at work, and then when I get home it’s the first thing I do. Then I go to the gym, two or three more times before I go to bed, so before you know it it’s been 7 times. But it’s because I’m not getting a lot of action.
TS: Why not?
SL: It’s complicated. There are not very many guys here in Salt Lake City who I’d consider having sex with. The few that I’m interested in I’ve already dated. And for me it’s just easier to masturbate than to call people and arrange something. In fact my favorite thing to shoot is a solo. One time a shoot got delayed and I only had 15 minutes to shoot before I had to catch a flight, and I pulled it off.
TS: Are you just really picky?
SL: Well I don’t like to use the word picky because that makes it sound like I think I’m all that. I don’t think I have the right to be picky. But yes I’m choosy about who I have sex with, partly because a lot of the guys are trying to hook up with me because I’m a porn star, which is a term I use loosely.
TS: Don’t use it loosely, you are definitely a porn star.
SL: Okay, well I’m always skeptical of their motives, and I wonder whether they just want to hook up with me so they can say they’ve hooked up with a porn star.
TS: To return to masturbating, I don’t know anyone who masturbates as much as you do.
SL: Yeah, it’s crazy. It was very hard when I was on my mission for the LDS church. They tell you that you can’t masturbate but two months into it I was like, screw it.
TS: Did you fuck another missionary?
SL: I did mess around with a couple missionary companions, nothing serious, but yeah. One of them was Scottish, he was actually pretty femme and he’s married now, but one night we were horny and we decided to masturbate together. He felt really bad and went and told the mission president, so he called me into his office and said, “Elder, I understand you and your companion masturbated together, and you can’t have the holy spirit with you when you masturbate on the mission.” And I told him that I was baptizing a lot of people and still masturbating a lot. He was taken aback, but he told me that he was my age once and that he understood.
TS: And then he walked over to you and as a punishment made you suck his big dick.
SL: No, he was a 72-year-old.
TS: You’re not into geriatric sex?
TS: Who’s the oldest guy you’ve had sex with?
SL: I guess the oldest guy as my age, early 30s.
TS: Who was the youngest?
SL: [Long pause.] 18.
TS: Yeah, okay. I’m sure. Sounds like we maybe shouldn’t explore that. Next question. Does your family know you do porn?
SL: No my family doesn’t know. I was born in a small town in northern Italy near France and my family is all back there, and so they don’t know about me. And here I have to say that when I first started doing porn I met some harsh judgments from the gay community. It’s interesting. You wouldn’t expect the community to judge you harshly for doing porn. I don’t know if it’s the Mormon thing or whatever but it was hard, when it first came out that I was doing porn I’d get a lot of mean emails from people here, saying that it was trashy and sleazy or whatever, and I think it was hypocritical because a lot these guys, who were always posting pictures of their buttholes on m4m. Since I was one of the first here to do porn, maybe people didn’t know how to react. Now of course there are a few more guys, so people don’t care as much, but yeah at first it was hard.
TS: Ever engaged in statutory rape?
SL: Have you?
TS: Well if I did I didn’t know it.
SL: Yeah that’s the big problem. A lot of people have fake IDs these days, so you assume people are older than they maybe are. But I’ve never taken anyone home from a club.
TS: Wait. What!
SL: No, I’ve never picked up a guy at a bar as far as I remember. And if I did I must have forgotten, which would mean it wasn’t that great.
TS: Why don’t you pick up guys at bars?
SL: Well because I’m paranoid about clamidia, gonorrhea, syphillus and genital herpes.
TS: Those are all treatable except herpes, and that’s not that bad.
SL: Well in fact here in Utah clamidia and gonorrhea are getting so bad that the drugs aren’t working as effectively as before, and syphillus is painful to treat. But I’m crazy, I get tested all the time, and as soon as I get back to a shoot the first thing I do is get tested.
TS: But no, that’s not true: the first thing you do is masturbate.
SL: Well yes, I supposed that’s true. First I go home and masturbate, and then I go to the clinic.

Slade gets fucked in Chaos Men’s Total Chaos
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.
