When Netflix decided to spend $5 billion in original content, who knew it would all be Sci-Fi! Look, I’m not complaining. Science Fiction is clearly a great to tool for evaluating our everyday problems. Unlike some of the other Sci-Fi originals, Netflix has to offer, Sense8 is intelligent and tackles a shit load of problems. I’d list them, but just google protest signs, 21st Century and you’ll get it. Aside from the issues this show tackles, it also scandalously offers full frontal male nudity, the most progressive sex scene I have ever seen, and man on man intimacy… There are moments when you really start to see past gender, race, sexuality, all of it. YOU REALLY SEE PAST IT. I have never seen this accomplished by a television show before. But, I’ll stop with this intro bull shit and just get to it.


Sense8 follows eight strangers (Sensate, Sense8… play on words) who very quickly discover they are connected. From all over the world, suddenly these strangers are able to see each other (imagine a mental astral projection), share each other’s knowledge (imagine suddenly knowing how to speak Korean because I can), and even carry out actions through each other’s bodies (think possession). Sounds great, right? Well, it would be… If they all didn’t have a gang of their own problems to deal with, not to mention the fact that their being hunted. But, luckily these people are all very skilled in their own ways and when you got abilities like these, you can get by with a little help from your friends. I was brought to tears, seeing these characters struggling alone and afraid and having their peers come to their rescue. In their most vulnerable moments, they have 7 friends who can see it all and love them, unconditionally. I hope you have that in your life. There is nothing more beautiful than helping a neighbor in need.


This show intelligently crosses the very, outwardly different world of these people who share a common inner reality. It seamlessly puts you in the shoes of someone you thought you didn’t identify with. These character accept each other, no matter their differences and it begs you to do the same, I honestly was sooo incredibly shocked by the male on male intimacy. I don’t group-dance-sensates-boys-edition-sense8-40127175-500-282have the words. Even when it’s sexual, it’s not. It’s a glimmer of this Utopia, many of the sexually disenfranchised have hoped for. It allows for this openness that society denies you, a fluidity, the thought of which, honestly, brings me to tears. The connection between these people is beyond any category we have used to divide us and I hope we are all able to find connections like this.The group montages of this show are so artfully done. In television, there is often a fear of silence, networks shy away from scenes where there isn’t much dialogue, for fear of “losing” audiences. But, these montages are so captivating and really help the story on its journey. It will also give you hope that in your darkest days, you can find joy and that when you feel the most secluded, maybe you’re not alone.  This show is an example of what is possible, when we dare to be honest. It’s diverse. It’s real. it’s love.





Where to start? Where to start? How about I talk about each character… they really make the show.


All these characters are exactly the same age (Yeah, they share birthdays)

Capheus “Van Damme” Onyango


“Van Damme” is the driver of a privately owned mini-bus in Nairobi. Dude is seriously the sweetest guy in the world, with so much goddamn integrity the shit is insane. He’s the type that would be dying of starvation, find a million dollars in cash and turn it in to the authorities.


Problem Solver Like for real! When you’ve got nothing, you pretty much do anything to fix a problem and this man is brave and creative.

Driven Like literally, he is driven. He can drive a vehicle like it’s nobody’s business (a skill that comes in handy a few times… and not just for himself). But, also, this man is driven to succeed. He admires Jean Claude Van Damme so much for his abilities, his work ethic, and determination. He does his best to mimic the qualities and he succeeds.


His mother is very sick from AIDS and they are quite poor. There are ways for him to make money, but many of them put him in mortal danger. Can he provide for his mother, keep his integrity, and stay alive?


Sun Bak

netflix and chill sense8 sebastian cummings

Sun Bak is a straigh up “G”. I am not kidding when I say, I want to grow up to be as strong as this woman, both mentally and physically. Sun is a business woman, she works for her father who has been very successful over the years, but could he have been so successful without his daughter? Oh, but that’s not all. Sun Bak is also a bomb ass kick boxer. She’s the type to knock on someone’s door, set a timer for 30 seconds, and by the time the timer runs out…. errybody dead. She is also, by far, the coolest character. She got swag.



I will state the obvious first. Sun can kick ass. That’s all I have to say. Just watch the show. But, she is just as strong emotionally as she is physically. She makes sacrifices when others are too afraid to step up. She takes care of business.


Sun lost her mother at a young age and her father and brother don’t respect her as much as they should. But, because she is such an amazing woman, she still cares to protect them, but in order to that, what must she give up?

Nomi Marks

nomi marks sense8 netflix and chill sebastian cummings

Nomi is a hacktivist who happens to be trans. Homegirl is intelligent, she’s been hacking alongside seasoned adults since she was a child and if it’s connected to the net, she will find it. Nomi fights for justice at every chance she gets…. also, her and her girlfriend are the cutest.


Like I said, girlfriend can hack. But, she is also very connected, she knows people in the hacking world, which is very useful. But, I don’t want to down play her hacking skills, this woman saves the day for the group a few times. Nomi also holds steadfast to her beliefs, which is a skill more people could stand to have.


Nomi’s mother is a piece of work, and while I don’t want to give too much away, when the big bad comes for Nomi, her mother hands her right on over, in the worst way possible, legally…. Yeah, her mother believes all of Nomi’s problems are rooted in her being trans, so she is easily manipulated when the big bad comes for her. What does the big bad want? To take away her ability to think….

Side Note

Nomi and her girlfriend are feel like such an established couple. They seem real and it is refreshing to see. You don’t feel they have been cheapened for public consum[tion. It is wonderful to see. I am so happy for all the lesbian women who have felt under-represented in television. Not that this makes up for everything, but it’s a start.


Kala Dandekar

kala sense8 netflix and chill sebastian cummings

Kala is a young Hindu woman living in Mumbai, working as a pharmacist. She has a heart of gold and a child like joy to her.


Her pharmacy skills save the day from time to time (she smart!). But, her primary “skill” in my mind, is listening to her heart. During the course of the first season, she is weighing the options in a major life decision and it is very nice to hear her be honest with herself about how she feels, in moments when most of us, might just say what we think we should. Her decisions are complicated, but… they are her own to make.


What does she want from life? Love? Is it more about a feeling or about who the person is?


Riley Blue

riley blue sense8 netflix and chill sebastians cummings

Riley is a London DJ, from Iceland. She’s got a reputation for being sick on the turntables. But her troubles seem to be keeping from turning a new leaf.


Riley’s need and desire to overcome a troubled past, has proven to be her greatest skill; the ability to continue on.


Riley believes she was cursed as a child. She was warned to stay away from her homeland or her loved ones would all die. She didn’t believe it at first, but then life happened. Unfortunately, she never fully dealt with these issues, so it seems the universe plans on throwing it in her face until she faces it.

Wolfgang Bogdanow

Wolfgang Bogdanow sense8 netflix and chill sebastian cummings

This my nigga. This dude is tough, sensitive, loyal, and sexy as hell. He the type of dude you get pregnant with by accident. Why? Because you never intended to have sex with him, you weren’t even sure you liked him as a person, he’s so quiet. But, one day he let his guard down and before you knew it, you were letting him hit it raw.


Wolfgang is a locksmith… and a safe cracker. He’s good. He will find his way inside the box. He’s also street smart. He grew up as the black sheep of his neighborhood, so he had to fend for himself and man… over the years that has developed into some serious, serious bad ass-ness. He need his own movie.


His father was abusive. I’m sure you can imagine the ways this surfaces in his everyday life. Also, his “family” is full of crime lords who care more about money than his well being. His childhood best friend is the only family he has, but that also means, he’s got to protect him in the dangerous world of crime they are drowning in. But what if he fell in love? Would he give it all up?

Also, he is so sexxxy. That’s difficult.


Lito Rodriguez

lito rodriguez sense8 netflix and chill sebastian cummings

This the baby daddy you got on purpose. I know I am bias, I know! But this man is so charming and the character is so well rounded. He wears his heart on his sleeve. His is sensitive. He is a coward. He is brave. He is shameful. He is proud. He is daring, But, most of all, this man is a ball of love. This show is more of an ensemble piece, but sometimes Lito seems to be the main character and, at times, the comic relief. There is nothing more life affirming than hearing this man describe his love.


Lito is an actor, so he has a way with words and is more comfortable navigating dangerous situations involving elaborate pretend. He saves the day a few times, this way. Lito is also guided by his heart. He wants to do what is right. He wants to love. He is so in touch with his emotions that he comes to tears, often. It’s easy to feel what he feels. This is a useful skill.



Lito is a closeted Mexican film star…. yeah. In the land of Machismo, he is king, but what happens when he must choose between his career and his loving boyfriend (who is fine as fuck). So, far he has managed to get to get the best of both worlds, while those around him have sacrificed, now it’s his turn. His world is turned upside down when the woman he has been leading on in the public eye to maintain his machismo finds out about his love life. His life becomes even more complicated when he sets his apprehension aside, and this woman becomes part of his family; he and his boyfriend develop a special love with this sweet, charming, initially intrusive woman. But this new bond is what also leads the hitting of the fan with the shit. What will he do to respect his boyfriend and protect his former beard/now best friend from an abusive relationship that she has been willing to endure to protect him?

Side Note:

This show does a good job of portraying a loving relationship between two men. It feels well rounded and real and it doesn’t shy away from the physical aspect of their relationship, but doesn’t feel like it exploits it either. I honestly fell in love, just watching Lito and his boyfriend. I was brought to tears. Even in their moments of spent playfully lounging in bed. It’s all you ever hoped you could have, but what you’ve felt society has said, you can’t. I’m so happy there are young gays growing up with shows like this… As much as we think it doesn’t, it makes a difference. I love these men.



Will Gorski

will gorski

Will seems to be the all American Male. He’s white, he’s a cop, and his dad is a legend in the police force. But, will isn’t quite like his peers in blue and everyone tries there best to ignore it, but I’m not sure they can any longer.


Integrity. Dude wants to do what’s right, even if that means saving a black kid, dying of a gunshot wound, that otherwise would have been left behind. His peers shame him, but he keeps going.  Another skill, even when the outside world tries to get him to deny his reality…. he doesn’t.


Will seems to have had a connection before this group of 8 formed, when he was a child. A young girl was murdered and he could see her, but no one believed him. Everyone around him has done what they can to silence him over they years and get him to “behave” but he can’t take it anymore, even if it means losing the respect of his father.


This is a call for “boys” to be what they are, humans. Be beautiful, be artistic, be loving, be friends, be afraid, be strong, be sexual. Be all these things, because that’s what you are and don’t let anyone make you feel shameful.

Boys will be humans will be boys will be humans will be boys will be humans will be boys will be humans….

Look, if you’re trying to get in better shape, it’s not going to happen on it’s own. Seeing what others are able to accomplish with hard work and dedication might be enough to at least get you on the road to change. So I’m sharing my InstaFinds. They help me…  Also, In case you are wondering, I didn’t just gather these InsaFinds for this article, these are from my personal collection, to keep me motivated. I just love you so much, I wanted you to have hem too!

Have you seen John Leguizamo’s one man show, Ghetto Klown? At one point in the show he describes a stage in the creative process he often goes through: he writes, gets depressed, hates himself, watches porn, and masturbates… over and over again. John Leguizamo and I are the same person. I’ve been doing a lot of work lately, which leads to an increased amount of time my pants and my ankles get to hang out. I kept stumbling across the same performer; Darius Ferdynand. He is wildly attractive. He is in amazing physical shape. But, what else? His face seemed to say, “I want you to get know me, but you’ll have to seek out the answers yourself.” So, I did. I found a few interviews and I learned a great deal; Darius is from Hungary, he attended drama school and worked for some time as a professional actor and model, but found it difficult to financially support himself with that work alone. His modeling work evolved into erotic shoots, which eventually led to his work in that Adult Film Industry. Amazing! Who knew he got his start in theatre? I have had friends in the entertainment business who have considered moving to the adult film business for the same reasons, so I felt a connection with him and I wanted to know more. I found myself uninspired with the questions others were asking him, so I decided to go directly to the source and ask Mr. Ferdynand my own questions. So, I headed to The Green Room.

How have you been these days?
I’ve been fine these days. I mean I definitely shoot less recently, but at least I got more time for other projects.
Although I live in Spain, I still love to get away from the cold winter, so I was traveling a bit lately.

I understand you went to drama school and have performed in musicals, films, and commercials. What was it about the world of performance that first seduced you? (Was there a play or film that greatly inspired you? What do you love about acting?)
Yes, that’s correct. I went to drama school, because as a kid I was spending all my time making up stories, pretending to be a cartoon character or just making smiling my parents when I was telling a poem or a piggy joke.
I got inspired by anything I watched and I found it interesting and fascinating.
What I love about acting is that you can be whoever you want, you can be someone else and doing things that you’d normally wouldn’t do without consequences. I generally like things with no limit and no rules.



Agreed, there is a bit of satisfaction in being able to live out scenarios you might not in real life, without any of the consequences.
You must receive thousands of messages from fans across the world asking for advice on coming out and with stories about how they feel inspired by you, how does that make you feel?

When I receive a message like this it feels weird, because their stories are so personal, but I feel honoured too, because they trust on my opinion, but it’s also a lot of responsibility.
I never tell anyone that “You should do this, or that” because normally I don’t know the actual man personally, and what if what I say won’t work?
So I always trying get to know the details, without being too intrusive and give more options so they can really make their own decisions without blaming someone else.

Did you have someone who helped you through your early coming out days?
In my early coming out days I was counting on my family and my close friends. I mostly got lucky with both of them. Thanks, Mom. Love you ForEver!

We’ve never met in person, but there is an energy about you that would seem to indicate you are an attentive, accommodating person, is that so? And if so, how did you come to be so? (Are you a middle child?)
Thank you, very kind of you.
I don’t know about that, I used to be very attentive and still trying to be. Honestly I lose my attention very quickly if I find something or someone boring, but I give the same chance to everyone to being interesting or entertaining.
I was the youngest child, so I had lots of attention and love, I guess that’s what I’d like to give back to the universe to have cosmic balance

Let me know if you need any volunteers, I’d really like to help out by being on the receiving end of your attention and love… I just want help out as much as I can.
When I first moved to Philadelphia on my own, I finally felt free and wanted to see and bee seen. One of the first things I did with this new found freedom was attend a circle jerk party with about 50 or 60 other guys. It was one of the most liberating and frightening experiences in my early gayhood. You’ve described yourself as somewhat of an exhibitionist, do you have a particularly memorable experience of being sexually brave early on?

Reaimageslly? A circle jerk party??? Wow…I can only imagine what is that supposed to be. 🙂
Well…as a teenager though I started doing sex as the age of 14 I was having the same partners for quite a long time and was having a kind of early thoughtful, responsible and very loving
sex until the age of 22.
That was the
time when I started to having senseless one night stands and discovering new sexual experiences. Both times were liberating but in a different way.


Inside The Green Room


Was it difficult getting used to the idea that most of your friends have probably seen you have sex? Maybe even family?
No, it wasn’t really difficult to accept the fact that most of my friends have already seen me having sex on film.
I mean I know it will probably happen, I counted on that when I have decided to get involved to the adult industry. It’s part of it. Nothing I can do.

What keeps you motivated to work hard and seek new opportunities?
I got motivated by other people who are more successful than me. I want to get my things together so I can support my family or soon start my own family and have a normal, secure, happy life.

Same! I like learning as much as I can from people who are more successful than I am. Especially as an artist trying to be artistically and financially successful.
What do you feel is the greatest struggle in your life that you’ve overcome?

I had a few, maybe the biggest was when I realised that I have to stop professional acting and focus on other things that interest me.

I can only imagine what that was like. I’m happy you are doing well for yourself today and would hope that things only get better for you.
What is love?

Love is bird, flying high passionately, singing all day, not giving a shit for everything and then loosing the control and fallen down to the earth, in pain. Then climbing up a tree and trying again with broken wings and falling feathers but with tougher spirit.

That is beautiful! I wish that could fit on my license plate!
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years I see myself giving you another interview for the 10th anniversary of this interview.

I like your way of thinking! Yes, let’s do that. As a matter of fact, let’s be friends.
What do you most enjoy about this thing we call life?

What I enjoy the most about life is the surprises, the unpredictable future and the several choices and variety of opportunities. Dealing with decisions and connections we make. Being able to to change or make something better.

You seem to be growing and getting better everyday and I hope you get all that your heart desires… and that we become best friends.

male ejaculation
Porn is everywhere, just about everyone is watching it while attempting to bring themselves to orgasm. We love seeing people fuck! We all know that. And it’s starting to lose its stigma, no?
Buy Bastian, the new album by Sebastian

Picture it: you’re friend Joe says, “Hey let me show you the costumes I tried on yesterday at the costume store,” you sit next to Joe and you lean your heads together and peer into the phone, swiping from image to image. “Oh, that’s an awesome Aladdin costume.” “Yeah, but check out this Pikachu.” “Yeah and look at… oh, that’s my dick.” You just saw a picture of Joe sitting in front of a mirror holding a TV remote next to his erect penis (for scale, obviously). It’s cool though, now you’re even, because when Joe was over your house last week, you were trying to find the short film you and your cousins made last summer on your vacation, you search by date, because you can’t remember the title, but you remember the month and year. But instead of the short film you made with your cousins and the island natives, you select a video of yourself, laying on the beach, cumming on your own face.


So, it’s safe to say we can all stop thinking of adult entertainers as anything other than people, because that time you went on that craigslist hookup at some random dude’s house to get a blow job… yeah, he was secretly filming it and you have 1,263,206 likes on Xtube. Almost everyone is an adult entertainer these days. Some are just more qualified.

So, I thought I’d talk to a guy I think is pretty qualified, a professional even. I mean, Xvideos.com ranks him as the 8th most popular male porn entertainer in the world, 4th in the United states. He founded PervOUT, described as “a network of Independent Porn Productions where we empower the performers and the indie producers to build equity, work safe, and help each other compete with the giant companies.” He does straight and gay porn (my kinda guy), and he produces fetish porn. So, I’m sure you’ve guessed what I wanted to chat with him about…. Life, obviously! Because he’s a human being just like you… just with more interesting experiences. And yes, we talk a little about sex… human.

Lance hart

So you’re the founder of the PervOUT network, a producer of porn, an adult film performer (both gay and straight), and a man with a refreshingly progressive view on sexuality. Have you always been this ambitious? Was there a time you struggled with motivation and drive? How did you deal with it?
I struggled with motivation for years. I had almost 40 jobs before porn, and sucked at all of them 🙂 (Read more about those experiences on his blog)
I just eventually got sick of being broke all the time. I lucked out by finding something I’m decent at that I enjoy, and never looked back.

I’m sick of sick of being broke all the time too, maybe I need a career change…
In 2015, I had what I refer to as ‘A Winter Epiphany”; I started evaluating my life; the person I was becoming, the people I was surrounding myself with and started questioning what changes I could make to lead a more fulfilling life. I read on your blog,that some time last year, you went through personaI problems that lead to a great deal of personal improvements. What are some things you learned about yourself; your behavior, habits, thought patterns that you’d suggest others consider evaluating in themselves if they are looking to grow and live a better life?

Well I’ve read a ton of self help books since this summer… They are all good and helpful in their own way. If I could pick one thing to say it would be “just be positive.” I’ve learned that there is never a good enough reason to have a negative attitude. It doesn’t help at all. It’s okay to be sad, angry, disappointed, broken hearted… but feeding negative thinking is never useful. Everything is almost always acceptable in the moment.

That’s very refreshing to hear someone else say. I was trying to convince myself of that very idea earlier, but was struggling. It all seems so clear when someone else articulates it.
What advice do you have for someone looking to start their own business?

Google everything and read a lot before asking people for help. When you do ask people for help, make sure you precede their help and follow it up with action. Otherwise you are just wasting peoples’ time with fantasy talk 🙂
Also, and more importantly, keep the goal in mind. Most of the time the goal is TO MAKE A MONEY. So, you have to spend less than you make. Otherwise it’s just a hobby.

Okay, this is a bit off topic, but you’re abs are intense. Please tell us what you do to get such a strong core. What’s your routine?
Thanks! It’s like they say, “Abs are made in the kitchen.” Just like business. You have to burn more calories than you take in (profit) to get down to the six pack 🙂

Lance Hart

Is it hard to stay focused at work when everyone you’re working with is attractive and naked?
I’m very lust driven. I’m laser focused when it comes the naked stuff. I struggle with emails and scheduling things (tasks that are done while wearing pants)

Do you ever feel objectified?
Nope. Not sure what that would feel like…

What”s the biggest piece of advice you’d give to someone considering doing porn?
Consider your goals. Do you just want sex? Do you want internet fame for some reason? Do you have a fetish or kink that you could only safely experience in a film set? Do you want to help humanity with a sex positive message? These are all fine reasons, but keep your eye on the goal. Also, make sure you are 100% okay with EVERYONE you have ever met, or ever have met knowing you have done porn. THEY WILL ALL FIND OUT. ZERO EXCEPTIONS. Mom, Dad, kids, teachers, your kids’ teachers, old high school friends… They will all know. It will be the most interesting thing they have to say to each other when they run into each other at the mall…. “Do you remember Sebastian from High School? I totally heard he’s in porn now. Here! Look at naked on my phone!” That’s how it happens. You better be okay with that 🙂

Can you describe the most fun experience you’ve had on set as a performer?
Too many to list 🙂

What do you love most about life?
Honesty. I am honest with who I am and have no secrets from anyone. Not everyone approves of my lifestyle, but I own it. It’s a very free feeling 🙂

Thank you Lance for your words on life. One of my biggest goals in life is to just “own it,’ hopefully I’ll get there soon… Hopefully we all will.
