Adam Wirthmore Interview, Behind the Scenes

Author & Curator: 
Troy Maillis

The Guy Next Door

You’ve seen him before.  You know who I’m talking about—that guy on that site. He’s the guy that helps you relieve stress and explore your wildest fantasies. Originally from a small town about 20 minutes north up Boston, Adam Wirthmore grew up a free-spirited, uninhibited lover of life and nature. Like most gay teens, he watched a fair amount of porn and was always curious about meeting and having sex with the porn stars he saw on the internet. At 19 years old, Adam sent out a few applications and OnTheHunt.com (side website of ManHunt.net) asked him to come in for a meeting. With an office he described as looking like a “British law firm with wooden floors, wooden columns, nicely upholstered furniture, and a sweet old secretary,” Adam knew this was a legitimate business. After checking out the guys who would be at the upcoming shoot, he took some preliminary photos and had a train ticket to NYC in hand by the end of the meeting—the rest is history. Adam recently spoke with Mark’s List about working in the adult film industry, his favorite co-stars, what he looks for in a partner, and what you can expect from him in the future.

How long have you been in the business and how long will you make movies? Would you ever like to direct or work more on the production side? 

I have been shooting scenes, mostly for Next Door Studios, three to four times a year for the past three years. I will continue to shoot scenes until it interferes with my main career or love life. The way I see it, I'm just having fun while the fun lasts. I am not dependent on the additional income. The money has definitely been helpful while living in Miami, but I am not planning on modeling much into adulthood. I would, however, be interested in getting more involved with production. I see a lot of potential in the industry, and I am not one to shy away from a business opportunity just because of its stigma in society. Let's be real, everyone watches porn, and it has to come from somewhere. I could definitely see myself recruiting, directing or producing movies in the near future.

You’ve worked with some of the hottest male film actors in the industry including Parker London, James Jamesson, Christian Wilde and Cody Cummings just to name a few. Do you have a favorite scene partner or scene in particular that stands out?

Well one of my favorite scenes was with Christian Wilde; it was one of my first scenes and my emotions are very pure and raw, and I still see that when I go back and watch that scene. I really lost myself in that scene and completely forgot about the cameras. My favorite scene partner, however, would have to be Samuel O'Toole. He just has those features that I'm really attracted to in a guy: dark features, playful attitude and a big, meaty cock.

Adam and Christian Wilde

Oh my god, yes. There are a lot of "straight" models who are exclusive to Next Door Studios and the scenes are definitely not as organic or emotionally pure as those that I've shot for On The Hunt, which uses primarily gay models who hire them through ManHunt. Instead of kissing me to help us both get boners, they are often rubbing themselves in the corner in between takes, staring at a mini DVD player that's blasting some straight porn with a chick screaming at the top of her lungs. It's definitely a buzz kill to look forward to a scene with someone like Cody Cummings or Tyler Torro, just to find out that they don't kiss, but oh, they will jam their cock down your throat or up your ass, respectively. But that's just part of the business, and I've learned to appreciate their contributions and accept their flaws [laughs].Speaking of Cody Cummings, many people are curious about how it is working with bi-sexual and straight actors. Is it different than working with the gay actors? 


Do the straight actors get into it sexually or is it really just like a job? Is it ever difficult for them to get aroused?  

It's really just a job for them. Sure, some of them are actually bi-sexual or into chicks with dicks, but the majority of the straight actors aren't really into more that the sensation of sticking their dick in someone’s ass. If they do have a problem getting aroused, then they don’t last in the gay porn industry for long.

What is it like on set with your scene partners? Do you get to know each On The Hunter first to break the ice, or do you just jump right into the action? 

It depends. At On The Hunt we have more of an ice breaker, and I think the chemistry in those scenes reflect that built up anticipation. At Next Door Studios, on the On The Hunter hand, we are kind of isolated in a hotel room until the scene, so it is hard to get to know the guys. The nightly dinners at Next Door Studios help you get acquainted, but that may come after your first scene with a guy. The exclusives at Next Door Studios are all pretty tight; they have to be because they see so much of each On The Hunter. Me personally, I have to at least see the On The Hunter guy before I have a scene with him. I guess I'm kind of picky when it comes to who I am fucking for the internet world to see. I still have my standards [laughs].


Adam and Cody Cummings

Well with On The Hunt and Next Door Studios, there are no scripts. For On The Hunt, it's just a quick interview and fucking. With Next Door Studios, there is some plot and costumes planned out before hand, but the lines are completely made up on the spot. Both companies pay for all your meals, transportation and lodging. It's pretty much a paid vacation with no expenses. It's what keeps me coming back for more. Oh, and the hot guys—can’t forget about them.How do adult film sets compare to regular film sets? Are there lots of flubbed lines, cuts, re-shoots and food carts like we would see on a normal movie set?  

What is your favorite part about being an adult film actor? Is there anything you don’t like?  

Being recognized for my work in the gay community has been the sharpest of double edged swords. I can almost sense when someone recognizes me in public, starring surprised and happily, and then whispering to their fashionably dressed, well-groomed male friends. The feedback is always positive and has definitely been a confidence builder. As much as I appreciate the recognition and admiration, I have also been outed to my fraternity and the cheerleading team by anonymous onlookers. Although I am not a part of those organizations anymore, I have kept some really close friends who love me for me and just want me to be safe and happy, which I am. I love them for accepting my choices in life.

You’ve acted as both “bottom” and “top” role in your films. Do you have a preference? 

Physically, I like the way it feels to bottom better. But psychologically, I like to play the top and pound some ass from time to time, because those are the guys and mannerisms that I most identify with. If I were to describe a perfect preference percentage ratio, it would probably be 70% bottoming to 30% topping. I can't see myself with a pure bottom or a top that will never let me flip him. You’ve got to be open-minded enough to let me in the back door from time to time. Plus, if I can do it all the time without complaining, then you can too—man up.


Adam and Cody Cummings

I guess my abs and ass are my best features. I don't go to the gym, but I do want to get bigger in the shoulders and chest—CrossFit anyone? I'm a big fan of feet, calves, legs and pecs, and I like a cute smile with a hot oh-face [laughs]. Oddly enough, I like eyebrows too. Really, I just love every part of the male physique.Working in the adult film environment requires actors to be in tip top shape. Do you have a favorite body part—one that you like to show off most for the camera? What about with your co-stars—what do you look for the most in their bodies?

With all the sex that comes from adult films, is it hard to keep your sex life active in your personal time? Is it difficult dating?

I have a lot of free time and I have a lot of sex in my personal life. I've kept a nearly perfect list of all my sexual partners I’ve gone all the way with, and it is just past 100 (not including repeats). Dating has always been difficult for me. I grew up in a small, primarily Catholic town before attending the University of Miami. UM tends to have either closet-case "straight" boys or flamboyantly feminine gays without much in between.  I'm pretty masculine—to be as out and comfortable with it at my age is a rarity, but that seems to be changing, slowly but surely. Dating for me is also complicated by the fact that I am looking for somewhat of an open relationship. I figure I'll slow down some day, but until then I'll just keep my eyes open for a fun fucker and a best friend to share this life with.

What are some or you current and future projects?

I have a blog that I have been developing since last summer (blogger.com/adamwirthmore). I have also played around with the idea of starting a website for a camera-house with a bunch of gay and bi-curious guys who are in college. The idea is that they are able to live at the house for free and get their college tuition paid for, provided that they pass their classes, play with themselves regularly, and fool around with each other every week or so. I like the idea of helping kids get to where they want to be in life while allowing them to have some fun along the way. It's all in the works, however, because I am waiting to mount some capital before really pursuing this business plan.
