Posted April 3, 2018 by with 40 comments

DWv6WB_U8AAwAKoIn this exclusive, in-depth video interview with Blake Mitchell, Str8UpGayPorn chats with the Helix Studios superstar about how and when he started as a performer, the headlines he’s made and the awards he’s won over the last year, what it’s like being bisexual and working in the gay adult industry, how he was outed as bisexual in high school, his future in front of and behind the camera, and much, much more.

This conversation covers a wide range of topics, and thank you again to Blake for taking the time to share so much about himself and his work. I learned a lot during our chat (and I’m even more of a fan of his now, if that’s even possible?), and I think you will, too.

  • Zealot

    I’m still on the fence about bisexuals.

    • Axel

      What?

    • Pinko of the Grange

      o i c what you did there

    • ANTSLC

      Me too.

  • Chad

    Great interview. He seems like such a nice, down to earth guy.

  • Benjam

    Just 1 more is not enough. I need like 10 more at least. Helix currently doesn’t have anyone else like him.

    • James Johnson III

      They never ever will. They have had big stars before but I doubt they will ever have anyone who can reach the level that Blake has managed to…in their career…or in sexy physical appearance

      • Tummple

        I hope you are wrong. They really produce some high quality boys who seem really tight as a group (as seen from their twitter accounts).

      • Caesarimp

        Rather ironically, I think Helix *could* have more guys like Blake, but it sometimes seems like they choose not to? Guys who occupy that area between twink and hunk often seem like a largely untapped market in the industry

  • ANTSLC

    He’s cuter without the glasses.

    • Mike Julius

      You meant with, I’m sure. Because that other statement… Without?! Does not compute!

      • ANTSLC

        LOL. I genuinely think he look cuter without his glasses.

        • Mike Julius

          *downvote*

    • Tummple

      To those of us who really like Blake with Glasses we would like to diagree with you wholeheartedly. Albeit…to each their own.

  • Galaxy_Scribe

    The audio on this is SO low

    Message to Blake, Cannabis biz is about to bloom up here in Canada as it becomes legal country-wide in July.
    Great interview, Zach and I’ll say it again: something about your voice makes me swoon.

    Yaas @ Miss Blake reading white cis gay men on twitter lol. But it is a very interesting issue especially when you consider that many gay porn scenes are riddled with homophobic undertones (MEN and NDS being the biggest offenders IMO). So gay male gay porn consumers are kind of being conditioned to hate themselves and lust after str8 men who don’t wont them but will fuck them because they’re horny and the wife/gf is not around. So I can imagine it must sting a little when a gay porn performer they really like turns out to be bisexual or str8. It can feel like betrayal. “You don’t know the gay struggle yet you profit off of gay media”. Add to this the conversation of male bisexuality being what it is, some people just aren’t willing to accept non-gays in gay porn.

    • Yea I guess he is so young and doesn’t really know the history of how porn studios have dishonestly marketed str8ness as the ideal. Helix has never competed in the g4p market and most of the models are listed as gay (and some bi) on their site.

      • peter

        If all his bod’ were larded o’er
        With darts of love so thick
        That you should find in every pore
        A well-stuck standing prick
        And if his eyes alone were free
        His heart would never doubt
        In am’rous rage of ecstacy
        To wish those eyes fucked-out!

  • B.C.

    Still don’t get the hype around him. One very important question: Does Davey Wavey get to play with Blake’s glasses?

    • I’m sure Davey Wavey has played with more than the glasses – he has a habit of promoting certain porn stars/youtubers and I’m sure it isn’t for free.

  • DumBone

    Ha. Those glasses. Smart move.
    He’s literally an unrecognizable some-goodlooking-guy without them.
    He seems fine and normal and I know he’s a solid/popular performer so I’m not negging but man those glasses are so important to his image. Very successful visual gimmick.

    I bet if he could take them off and wander the crowd of any gay porn event and people would wonder where Blake went.
    People laugh about how nobody recognizes how Clark Kent is Superman merely because of glasses – well, this dude proves that’s not so far fetched.
    He’s probably the only porn star where mere contact lenses are a useful disguise.
    Ok those are the only halfassed jokes I got in me. Adios.

  • Drew Kingston

    I could watch Blake in a gay, Bi or Straight scene with as much pleasure. I’m gonna miss him if he doesn’t work anymore as a model.

  • Birdy65

    We need a law to obliged such talented sexy model to shoot a scene each week. :=)

  • Daniel Adam Hayes

    Why are so many people obsessed with him? Is there something I don’t see?

    • wincrasher

      He’s that boy next door type. Pretty hot, but not on a level that makes him unobtainable.

  • Mani

    why those glasses?! any sight problem?

    if not then–
    some people just wear glasses to show they are smart, but in reality they are dumb as fuck 🤓
    one of the fair guys i dated kept insisting on math everytime we hang out… i clearly knew he wanted to prove me equal since I am a Scientist..
    our smartness should be reflected in what we do and not how we present ourselves!
    wearing glasses looks hot, i agree! ❤️
    but just don’t over do it, even hotness fades with overuse!

  • Todd Tomorrow

    Most of my friend’s are straight and 90% have admitted (often drunk in my teens) that “everybody is a little gay.” One really hot one and I were just about to get down and he said,”I don’t know if I want to try it because I’m afraid I might like it.” I could of gone farther but decided to stop.

  • Todd Tomorrow

    Most of my friend’s are straight and 90% have admitted (often drunk in
    my teens) that “everybody is a little gay.or” they’ve always wanted to try it” One really hot one and I
    were just about to get down and he said,”I don’t know if I want to try
    it because I’m afraid I might like it.” I could of gone farther but
    decided to stop. Just not many gay people in my small town.

    • Luca G.i.t.B.

      I had many experiences with straight guys at the high school (i proudly say that I sucked many dicks)
      Based on my experience straight guys expect three thing from gays
      – long-lasting blowjob
      – perfect deepthroat
      – ass rimming

      • Todd Tomorrow

        Us farm boys were really nasty.

  • Neil

    Just saw this. Great interview, Zach. I was one of those commenters who complained about the glasses. I was wrong.

  • dillaboi6

    Davey Wavy’s getting Blake’s big uncut meat!

  • Ed Woody

    It’s nice to get a reminder every now and then that not every gay porn performer is a drug addled mess only two days away from the gun barrel. I know that the bad eggs are not the majority but they certainly make the most noise, so it’s good to see proof that gay porn does not necessarily have to end in physical and psychological horror and death.

    Like when you interviewed Quinn, here we have a guy who has got his head on straight, no particular issues screwing him up, and says the word ‘vehemently’ in casual conversation. Although I’m not a massive fan of the cannabis stuff.

    Extra points for basically outing Shawn Mendes in a gay porn interview.

  • paultacoma51

    I don’t quite know what it is, but Blake is one of the cutest, sexiest “twink” to come along in a long time. Not only looks good on the outside, he’s articulate, intelligent, and mature for his age. I can only imagine how much hotter he’ll be as he gets older. Now, I wish he were more active on his YTube channel.

  • Jamie

    Zach and Blake – All I can say after watching this fantastic interview is that I am super proud of every vote that I cast for Blake(and Ashton) and for correctly predicting their win. I knew that Blake was talented but I have little doubt that he’ll be successful in any career and be able to drive for hours in any vehicle he chooses.
    Thx to you both.
    Love – Jamie😎

  • GayhawkAZ

    He’s adorable. :)

  • Ty Huber

    Loved this whole interview but especially his reflecting on his performance in early scenes and how he’s learned from them. That’s gratifying to me, because as an actor myself I respect artists who strive to improve (sadly I lack ALL the qualifications to be a porn model except enthusiasm). And I think it shows in his work at Helix. He’s never been bad, but it took him a while to become really, really good. With other porn models, what you see in the audition scene is what you’ll see until they “retire.” It makes think of my avatar, Travis at CF. Kind of a goofy hick when he got started, but with some experience he just soared. Likewise superstar Kevin Warhol at BA — he was cute enough as a teenage ragamuffin, but look what a little hard work, training, and grooming can accomplish; he’s magnificent.

  • Ryan

    Fantastic interview… really seems like the sort of guy you’d love to grab a few beers with at the bar, or go hike/drive through a national park with.

    …and NEGATIVE 12 eyesight!? Damn, he is blind without those glasses. I’m a negative 6, and I can’t see a thing without my glasses. His lenses have to be super thick.
