Ty Lattimore interviewed for GBMnews.com
Let’s start with your stats? Astrological sign? Birthplace?
I am 5’11, 180 lbs, 9 inches cut. 31 years old. I am a Cancer and originally from Oakland, CA. I am based in Atlanta, GA.
What made you want to get into the Adult Entertainment Industry?
Well I did not really choose it. I was a print model and a producer approached me in San Francisco. I realized that I enjoyed it. I know the politically correct thing is to say that I do it for the money. But that bullshit, I do it because I love it and I am great at it.
How long have you been in porn?
2007 makes it about ten or eleven years on and off.
Who are your favorite porn stars?
My favorites to watch are all of my Ty Lattimore Ent models. Outside of that I really enjoy a lot of the new models on the scenes. But my all time current favorite is Carlos Morales. Old school would have to be Ty Jones. New school would be Shorty J.
Who is your favorite co-star?
Wow. Now that could get me into a lot of trouble. I have liked mostly everyone I have ever worked with. I think there have been some that I had better chemistry with than others. I really liked the work I did in Glory Holes of New York and in Punch You in Yo Ass.
Well, that answered my next question of which of your videos you had the most fun making. So let me ask you, what do you attribute to the success of Ty Lattimore and now, Ty Lattimore Entertainment?
That’s a good question. I think my success comes from just being me. I have never tried to play character or persona. I am truly the person I come across as on-screen. I also try to stay grounded and never let my ego get out of control. I also have many other aspects of my life that do not involve porn, which helps to balance me as a person. I also try to be accessible and keep my ears on what people like to see. Ty Lattimore Entertainment is all about me filming the type of men you see everyday. I shoot the most diverse group of models than any other company and the most diverse type of content. We have muscle dudes, shawties, twinks, older men, hairy men, uncut, thick brothas, biracial, European, Southern men, and Hispanic men. We shoot bareback, condom videos, fisting, watersports, and “regular” sex too.
What is your company’s mission statement?
Real Men. Real Diversity. Southern Flava.
What do you see for your immediate future?
I see Ty Lattimore Entertainment growing in leaps and bounds and becoming one of the premier gay porn companies. Period. My team and I work very hard to make these videos and promote them. I am hands on with everything from concepts, casting, directing, producing, and anything else that requires my input.
What has been your biggest accomplishment during your career?
My biggest accomplishments are yet to come. As of right now, its just being able to say I am still here after all that I have been through. Second biggest is starting my own business and using all that I have learned to redefine myself from a model, stripper, escort, porn star, columnist and writer to now being a business man, producer, and director.
What is the biggest misconception about you?
That I am stuck up or unapproachable. Nothing could be further from the truth.
What does Ty enjoy in his spare time?
I enjoy quiet and sleep when I am not working 12-13 hours days. I mostly like to travel and photography. I love anything dealing with art, photography, images, film and video medium. I am also a huge music fan.
Who is your cd player right now?
Alicia Keys’ new album and Ciara. Also I am really feeling Neyo and Rihanna’s new duet.
What is your favorite food?
Tie between Thai and Chinese food.
What is your favorite movie?
Lady Sings the Blues and Why Did I Get Married.
Are you single?
I do not discuss my personal life.
Describe your ideal man?
I don't think I have ever been asked that for an interview. Well, I like men that are confident, smart, funny and ambitious. Physically, he has to have a sexy smile and great feet. I am like Eddie Murphy in Boomerang when it comes to feet. He has to be lickable from head to toe. I like a dude that has nice legs and ass!
Aight. What is your idea of the perfect date?
Anything that means being with the person you enjoy being with and just being yourselves.
What is an average day like for Ty Lattimore?
No such thing as “average.” It varies day to day. It really depends on if I am filming. Often it’s casting videos, dealing with stores and distributors, meeting with editors and graphics artist. It’s following up with projects and coordinating release dates, and promotional appearances. It is dealing with models and their issues. It can be responding to emails. Yes, I do answer my own email. Not sure why that surprises people. Mostly it’s different every single day. Essentially it’s doing whatever it takes to make it work. Sometimes that also means being in the actual videos.
Anything else that your fans should know about you?
I think my real fans know quite a bit about me already from over the years. Thank you so much for the support over the years. Also I thank you for this opportunity.
