In our exclusive interview ahead of his ground-breaking scene Wednesday, Viktor Belmont gets candid on what turns him on while letting you know what he’s going to do to turn you on.
“It’s not just what you have, but what you do with it” has never been a truer statement. Arguably, Viktor Belmont brings more masculinity to the screen than some of his cisgendered counterparts. But the question we’re exploring today, is where does that go from here?
Viktor knows where he would like it to go and has a lot to say on the matter. So much, we’ll be concluding our interview tomorrow. But not before he gives us all a lot to think about today.
The Sword: Viktor, I’m really excited about your movie and the chance to talk to you. Thank you for your time. Let’s get to it. How did you come to be part of the cast?
Thank you, Harlan. I’m excited too. So, Mr. Pam and I met at the Hookie Awards a couple years ago, actually. We both lived in San Francisco and chatted. We talked about doing porn a bit, and it was kind of a pipe dream that I’d ever get cast in a mainstream gay production.
But one day, I got an email from her. She had a new release in the works for and I was up for casting. It was a couple of years in the making, but we made it happen!The comparisons to Buck Angel are inevitable. Did you reach out to him or watch in preparation?
We’ve met a couple of times, and Buck is without a doubt an icon. He was the first, and I give him so much respect for that. He paved part of the way for sure, and I want to keep that movement going. He made space, and I’m trying to make space too, to raise visibility, awareness, and understanding.
Since Buck Angel was a decade ago, you are going to be the first transman many people see in action. Did that add to the pressure?
I’m not going to lie; I feel a little bit of pressure. But I know what I bring to the table, I know how hot the scene is, and I know that I can’t be anything but 110% myself. I’m going to try the best I can to hold space and have my head high. I’m proud to be trans, I’m proud to be gay, and I’m proud that I can be unforgivingly authentic.
I think there’s a lot of pressure to be a certain way, to look a certain way, to act a certain way to be “accepted.” I think that by being true to yourself is liberating. Self-love is radical, and I think the world needs a lot more love, empathy, and kindness right now, more than ever.
Since you made your first xxx film with Ruckus, was it helpful to also have him be part of this cast?
It was totally helpful. I love seeing the productions he’s in and its a blessing to be able to be part of such a hot cast of guys.
In an interview you said, “if you like guys, you’re going to like trans guys. It can be some of best sex of your life.” Are people surprised by both the comment and the reality of it?
I think that it’s realllllllly easy to focus on anatomy when you’re trans or interested in being with a trans individual.
But it isn’t just about that. Genitals aren’t the only thing that dictates someone’s entire existence. It’s pretty dehumanizing when someone just thinks of you for what’s in between your legs. It can totally be a part of your existence and dictate a lot of your attraction, but it isn’t everything.
What is good sex to you? What is pleasure to you? What is the definition of what you consider a good fuck?
Is it penetration? An orgasm? Being sensual? Kissing? Touching? Power Play? BDSM? Being filled? A verbal top? A hungry power bottom? Going at it for hours? Or just having something in your mouth, because you’re oral and that feels good to you?
All those things can be navigated and accomplished regardless of your gender identity. They can ALL be accomplished. What it takes is clear communication with whatever sexual partners you have. It takes consent. Which means you’re having a dialogue of what pleasure feels like to you, and there can be a lot of shame around sexual pleasure. Sex can be stigmatized to talk about openly in our society. And owning your pleasure? Even more so.
Sounds like you have done a lot of soul-searching especially on the tough questions. Accurate?
Being self-reflective and self-aware is hard. I think sitting down with yourself and asking, “what do I like and what feels good to me?” can feel scary to own and say out loud sometimes.
But let’s say you connect with someone and the tension is palpable? You want nothing more than to make them feel good, would you let anatomy be the thing that gets in the way of that attraction? Or would you say what you like and need, and then move forward from there?
Who knows, you might have the best sex of your life and it’s all because you sat with your feelings and worked through whatever shame and fear you had around anatomy.
Trans men are men. Trans women are women. We are the genders we identify as and should be respected as such.
Open your hearts and open your mind. There’s a lot of love, healing, and pleasure to be had by all of us once we do that.
Like , our interview with Viktor is just beginning. Tomorrow he tackles everything from what turns him on to the word “manupussy” and whether that should ever be said again.
See you tomorrow for the conclusion of our interview with Viktor and then on Wednesday for the premiere of his scene.
I found Viktor to be very self-aware and even more articulate. What did you learn from him today?
