WHEN WE INITIATED THE BEAUTIFUL PORN STAR INTERVIEWS IN DECEMBER 2005, WE HAD NO IDEA IT WOULD BE SO SUCCESSFUL. WE MET A LOT OF INTERNATIONAL PORN ACTORS, WHO ALL PASSED IN OUR SPOTLIGHT AND SEVERAL ARE STILL TO FOLLOW. BUT NOT MANY TIMES DID WE MEET A MAN AS SEXY, FUNNY, CHARMING AND INTERESTING AS FRED FAURTIN. All though active in the porn business for several years already, the name Fred Faurtin might not immediately ring a bell. One wonders why, because Fred certainly earned his stripes in the industry and is even the current figurehead of German porn giant Cazzo. Fact is that Fred is a most modest kind of guy. Down to earth, sympathetic with a good sense of humor and definitely a man without diva attitude. On top of that, Fred has all the right attributes it takes to make it in porn. He is masculine, has well muscled body that is developed in all the right measures at all the right places, a natural sexy look and oh man, that killer smile…. So for those who never heard of Fred Faurtin before, that is sure to change after reading his interview here on BeautifulMag. Join us in the first part today, and learn all about Fred Faurtin, from top to bottom. Fred, welcome to BeautifulMag. For those who do not yet know you, can you please introduce yourself? Fred: Well, my name is Fred Faurtin. I was born 36 years ago in Le Mans, France, but have lived for a long time in Paris, with an interruption of 3 years, in which I lived in Perpignan. Some facts: I have green eyes, brown hair that I keep very short, weight 69kg (152lb) and am 1,78 (5,90ft) tall, including 20cm (8inch) uncut ☺. I am also happily together with my partner for 14 years (the first one and the right one!), work in the porn business for 5 years and have been an interior landscape artist for 15 years. I stopped that work about 6 months ago because I needed more time for myself. From interior landscape artist to gay male porn actor…it seems a big step?Fred: It is and it isn’t. It both involves some sculpting and trimming and is very physical as you can imagine – lol.
You started with Cazzo Film. Was this a conscious choice?
Fred: More or less yes. In fact, my boyfriend and I have always liked porn and Cazzo is one of our favorites. Five years ago, he surprised me by sending in an application under my name. Surprisingly Cazzo reacted immediately, and one thing lead to another. A nice detail is that the very first film I did with Cazzo, I did with my partner. The concept was actually to do a partner casting scene. Apparently the footage Cazzo made turned out to me so hot that they decided to do a scene for a film of these sessions - Berlin Private 3.
Wow, so it was your partner who put you on the path of stardom. That seems quite unusual. What is it that attracts you in the Cazzo style?
Fred: Cazzo is a company that works with a good organization. They film according to a planning and storyline. Lots of time, with American studios, you film a scene which will be included in a film that is going to be produced between 6 months and 2 years later! Cazzo organizes the complete shooting at once. This is also why they are able to create some storylines in their productions, which makes it a bit more interesting as well. And besides all that, the guys are really hot.
Fred: I got hired by Raging Stallion in a more or less similar way as it happened with Cazzo. In this case I was in San Francisco spending time with Tom, a good friend of mine. He proposed to me to visit another mutual friend, François Sagat, who worked for Raging Stallion at that time, who in his turn invited me to visit the set. Once there I ran into the boyfriend of Chris Ward, the Raging Stallion producer, who happened to be a huge Cazzo fan and recognized me from my work. Needless to say, it didn’t take long before I moved from the sideline in front of the camera. I think Raging Stallion is a good equivalent to Cazzo and I really like the guys.
So tell us, what does the ideal man look like according to Fred Faurtin…
Fred: I don’t care if they are short or tall. I do like muscles and masculinity. I believe imperfection to be extremely sexy. I have to confess I’m a sucker for deviated ears and curved cocks – ha ha ha. Natural guys with a sex attitude, that’s what turns me on. If I have to name an example, Christoph Scharff comes to mind. Is this professional or a description of your partner?
Fred: ☺…. Aside from film, Fred Faurtin can now also be admired in the glossy Bruno Gmünder photo book Cazzo Men Factory. Fred Faurtin returns to BeautifulMag with the second part of his interview, next week Tuesday, February 05, 2008.
WHEN WE RECENTLY MET INTERNATIONAL FRENCH PORN ACTOR FRED FAURTIN AT OUR HOME, WE HAD THE BEST TIME. WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SERIOUS INTERVIEW, TURNED OUT TO BE A FRIENDLY CHAT WITH LOTS OF LAUGHS. AND WE CAME TO REALIZE THAT FRED IS NOT ONLY HOT AND SEXY, HE IS ALSO A REALLY NICE GUY. Last we Tuesday we introduced you to Fred Faurtin in the first part of his Beautiful Interview. Today we continue with vol. 2, the final part of the conversation we had with Fred, and where we discussed the professional side of Fred in the first episode, this sequence will give you the opportunity to get to know Fred Faurtin on a much more personal level. Fred tell us, is porn a full time job for you?Fred: Oh no… Filming usually happens during the summer months. I guess that is when we all look at our best – ha ha ha. But believe me, I have plenty of other activities to keep me busy.
Like?Fred: I’m working on some personal projects with my partner, but I’m also quite busy writing. You are a writer?Fred: Yes I am… I am a regular journalist for several gay and music magazines. Music is a passion. I recently wrote a book about the greatest singer of this time, which will be published at the same time her new album will be released. So acting in porn movies, writing for magazines and books? Anything else we should know about your activities Fred? I mean, looking at you, one wonders why you wouldn’t try modeling…Fred: It is funny you ask that. In fact, doing porn is not just filming. It also includes long photo sessions for cover and promotional material. And I just love doing that. In fact, I might even like it more than filming, which apparently makes me quite unique – lol. Not a lot of guys would mention this as their favorite part in doing porn.
You mentioned before you have always been a fan of porn. Has working in this industry changed that?Fred: No, I still like watching it, but I do admit I watch it with a different eye now. I really enjoy watching amateur films. It looks so much more real than most organized professional productions. It’s a real turn on.Do you watch your own films?Fred: I watch them once. You kind of have to. But I really don’t like watching myself. You know, you need to be some kind of an exhibitionist to be able to perform in this business, and if you are that means you like to show yourself to others, not so much to yourself. What role do you like to perform most?Fred: I’m versatile but more active than passive. In fact, I can be passive but only when the guy is bigger and stronger than me, with me still being in control. That is why, when I’m passive in a film, I am almost always still on top… It is very exciting to be passive with a strong guy while still controlling him and the situation. But as much as I like that, I do prefer to be the active one on film.
So Fred, imagine Beautiful would decided to produce a film, with unlimited budget and of course unlimited choice of actors – I mean really, anyone is lining up – and we want you to be the star. In fact, we go even further and want you to come up with the story line…Fred: First my casting: There are so many guys who excite me. For a good hard and hot sex movie I would cast Arpad Miklos, Christoff Scharff, Dean Monroe, Mike Roberts, Ty LeBeouf, Kane O’Farrell, Steve Hunt, Logan McCree, Dirk Jager and Ben Taylor. I didn’t even start with non porn actors… So, it would be an orgy movie. Each model will be in each scene – but in different places and with different looks. Something like an orgy which takes place in the twilight zone… It can get very rough in the Prehistory, outside in a cave, more depraved in the Egyptian time in a pyramid, and cuddling in the Renaissance at the Versailles palace in ‘la galerie des glaces…’ And it could finish in space, having weightless sex….
Mmm, guess it is time to get to know you a little bit better Fred. Please react to the following:
Do you have pets?
Fred: No I need to be free to travel all around the world for the moment without attachment like a child or a pet…
What ring tone do you have on your phone?
Fred: I didn’t change my ring tone ever. It’s the commercial one. For me a mobile phone it’s just something practical! It doesn’t matter for me. I’m no Material Boy :)
What is your number one song on your MP3 player?
Fred: Hung Up by that same greatest singer I mentioned before…
Do you like to cuddle?
Fred: Yes of course with my BF I’m like a leech… lol.
What do you sing in the shower?
Fred: I don’t sing in shower, but I like to make love under the water!
What is your favorite food?
Fred: Italian food… I like pasta.
What is your idea of a romantic evening?
Fred: My BF cooks a great diner, we drink a good glass of red wine, I put some candles in the room… and we have time to speak about what we’ll do later…
What is the most unusual place you had sex?
Fred: On the mountain… in the snow!
Ever gone out without underwear?
Fred: Of course! Like probably every gay man!!!
If Beautiful was a genie and you could rub our…well…lamp… What would be the three wishes you would make?
Fred: I’ll try to be honest….besides world peace... I would like a big house in a beautiful town - San Francisco for example, have enough money to stop working, and have my best friends around me. Finally Fred, knowing a lot of your fans and new fans will be reading this, please take this opportunity to say something nice – or naughty – to all those men…Fred: Like me you can have fun everywhere with a lot of guys, but don’t forget… play safe!

IF YOU ASK US WHAT THE PERFECT ALL STARS TEAM SHOULD LOOK LIKE, WE DON’T HAVE TO THINK LONG BEFORE GIVING AN ANSWER. JUST LOOK AT RICK DAY’S FIRST PHOTO BOOK PLAYERS, AND IT IS CLEAR. AND YES WE KNOW, THERE ARE A LOT MORE GUYS PRESENT IN THE BOOK THAN WOULD FIT IN ANY KIND OF SPORTS TEAM, BUT WHAT THE HELL… WE TAKE THEM ALL…
It is no secret that sportswear is one of the biggest turn-ons in the gay scene. I mean, just go to the average gym and look around. Guarantee you will see more than a handful of guys walking around, working all but their own body. And aren’t sports wear shop the biggest cruising grounds? If you are one of the few who do not have any affinity with sportswear and the divine-like athletes who usually wear it, believe me, it will all come to an end after seeing Rick Days Players.
Rick Day was born in the southern part of the United States and moved to New York City back in 1994. Here he grew out to one of the most noted names in men's and women's fashion photography. Now Rick can look back at 15 years of quality work, including publications for magazines like Elle, Details and GQ and advertising campaigns fro Gap, Rufskin and Ritaini. For almost a year now Rick Day is chief photographer for Genre Magazine, like Mark Seliger was for Rolling Stone and Richard Avadon for Harper’s Bazar. Not bad for a southern boy who taught himself how to use a camera.
Watching a sports game is almost an act of voyeurism. Seeing those muscled strong bodies running over a field, catching a ball or – even better – tackling each other. Rick Day has succeeded to capture that radiant masculinity with his camera, by carefully staging his scenes with a selection of the most beautiful men, showing their most beautiful muscles. The result is a splendid photo book: 144 full color testosterone dripping pages hold together by an image-wrap hard-cover with dust-jacket. After flipping through the pages and seeing these immaculate and trained bodies, you never ask yourself again what goes on under those sport short. Or do you?
Rick Days Players seem to taunt you. With a certain air of superiority and arrogance, they exhibition themselves, well built and sometimes better equipped, seemingly aiming a direct confrontation with you, the spectator, while looking at you directly from the crisp pages, and you can almost hear them asking: do you wanna play? –B- Rick Day’s Players is a Bruno Gmünder publication.
