Calvin Banks Exclusive: His Porn Future, His Fans, And Yes, His Big Dick

Posted February 11, 2016 by with 58 comments

calvin banksGay porn newcomer Calvin Banks has just two scenes under his belt—a solo and a duo, with Tyler Hill—but he’s already amassed a huge following thanks to his social media presence (and his obvious endowment). Get to know Calvin a little bit more in his first ever interview below.

Calvin-Banks-Solo-021Str8UpGayPorn: Hi Calvin! I guess we can start with the basics. Where are you from? How old are you? What is your height and weight?
Calvin Banks: I’ve been a resident of Massachusetts since I was three years old. Before that, I briefly lived in Atlanta. But, I am wholeheartedly a MassHole! I’m currently 18, turning 19 this month on the 21st. I am 5′ 11″ (6′ 5″ in my heels) and weigh 162, but I’m constantly at the gym so I’ve been bulking up.

Are you in school or working right now?
I work as a CNA (certified nursing assistant) in a local nursing home but am not attending school.

Are you dating anyone special?
I am 100% single. Nobody currently holds my heart, and I wish the best of luck to the one who eventually will. Actually, since getting my name out there, I’ve been a bit of a whore.

Nice! So what led to you filming with Helix Studios? Were you recruited, or did you apply on your own?
I frequent a bar in Providence called Ego, one that one of my co-stars Gavin Philips often goes to as well. I met him, we began talking, and I heard all about the industry from him. After giving it almost no thought at all, I applied online. A month and a half later, I got the text from my producer asking if I was interested. And now I’m here.

Calvin-Banks-and-Tyler-Hill-019Who was your first sex scene with, and did it measure up to your expectations? Anything happen that surprised you?
The first scene I filmed was with Tyler Hill, and I couldn’t say if it measured up to expectations because I wasn’t totally sure what to expect. The most surprising thing to me was the reaction I got to my performance. It instilled the confidence I needed to have hopes for my future in the industry.

What was your favorite part about your first sex scene?
While I enjoyed the process entirely, my favorite moment would have to be filming the cum shot. To just reach that climax with Tyler was incredible. And intense. Very enjoyable.

How did you choose your porn name, Calvin Banks?
Calvin was chosen because I was hell bent on having a name that began with a “C.” My original desire was for “Caleb” but it was unfortunately unavailable, thus Calvin was born. My last name “Banks” just had a nice sound to it.

Calvin-Banks-and-Tyler-Hill-046Given your size, have you ever accidentally hurt anyone while having sex?
I’d hate to say I’ve hurt anybody with my dick but I have definitely had a few twinks who couldn’t quite handle it all. They’ll shy away from it, but I treat them very well and they soon succumb to its euphoric size.

At what age did you realize you had a big dick, and what kind of reactions have you received about it over the years?
The first realization I had of my big dick was when I was 13 and lost my virginity. I bottomed for a guy whose dick just couldn’t compare. A bit later, upon my second encounter, I discovered the same thing! Ever since, I’ve only found one dick that can compare in size to that of my own.

Calvin-Banks-Solo-006Will we see you topping or bottoming at Helix, and do you prefer one over the other in your personal life?
I am a top. 100%. Although I’ve bottomed in the past, it’s never held the appeal like that of thrusting into a tight ass. Although bottoming in the industry may come at some point, it will take some die hard Calvin Banks fans to convince me.

What kind of porn did you watch before you decided to get into the industry?
Rough gay porn. All the way. I am totally captivated and thrilled by the incessant pounding of a rock hard top into some little bottom bitch’s ass.

calvinbanks3You’ve become fairly popular in a very short amount of time. What’s it like to suddenly have “fans” and followers, and has any of it been overwhelming?
I absolutely adore the fans! I can’t even call them fans. With the outstanding amount of support and love I’ve received so far, they’re more like friends. I mean, 1,700 Twitter followers in only two weeks, without even having a scene released?! It’s completely blown my mind. I couldn’t be happier with the attention. And I’ve yet to be overwhelmed by any of it, although I’ve only had to worry about my Twitter and now an Instagram. I have to constantly be on my phone, just to keep up.

CafniqzW4AAkOj9When you aren’t filming porn or working, what do you do in your free time?
When I’m not working (which can be up to 72 hours per week), you can definitely find me kicking back with my friends, or getting turnt at the club. Every Thursday I attend the drag show at Ego Providence, and every Saturday I’m half naked on the dance floor there. I love to snowboard and play video games. I’m a hardcore stoner at heart and I guarantee you my friends and I could out smoke anyone!

If you could pick any celebrity or famous person to film a gay porn scene with, who would you pick, and why?
Tom Daley, the Olympic diver. I swear I’m in love with him. He’s perfect in soooo many way. From his ideal height, to his incredibly toned body, all the way to his gorgeous personality and fun-loving attitude. I see a lot of myself in him. But I would just as quick trade that for a night wrapped in Ryan Reynolds muscular arms. Ohhh my lordy, I would lick sooo many toppings off of his chiseled abs!

Do you have a “type” of guy that you’re normally into?
I really can’t say I have a type. I mean, I definitely have preferences, but essentially if I see something I like, then I want it, and I often get it. I would be more inclined to take a muscular guy home instead of a bony little twink, but that’s not to say I wouldn’t take the twink.

calvin banks2What qualities or traits do you look for in a guy?
I always look at a guy’s eyes. And if the eyes are blue, it’s a done deal. Blue is my absolute favorite color, cause it’s the color of my eyes. Basically, I like pretty boys. Doesn’t matter height, or level of muscle. It’s fine to not be on top of your physical fitness, but being totally out of shape is so unappealing. So long as you’re nice on the eyes, I’ll take the next step—which is taking you on a date and getting to know you.

When did you know you were gay? Are you out to your family?
I’m not totally sure when I first realized that boys are so damn attractive to me, but I voluntarily touched my first dick I think at age…8? Then again at 11, and so on until I lost my virginity at 13. And ever since then, I’ve been obsessed. Kinda funny, because up until about my sophomore year I used to get these silly yet intense little crushes on girls, which would cause me to totally question if I was gay or not. But I grew out of that at 15 when I came out to my family. I received so much love and support from the people around me, coming out caused very few problems. Any issues brought about by those less accepting were quickly taken care of by myself, my friends, and my family.

Calvin-Banks-and-Tyler-Hill-029Do friends and family know about your new line of work? If so, how did they react?
Not all of my extended family knows about my new career in the industry, however all of my friends and immediate family do. I’ve received a lot of support, but I’ve also lost a few people to it. Two of my longtime best friends washed their hands of me upon returning from my first California trip to Helix. And although it was hard at first, this has helped me to find my true friends. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the best response from my mom when she found out. I’ve actually got to find a new place to live within the next couple months. I can’t blame her though, because it is definitely a difficult thing to accept about your son. So, I’ll move out and start my own life where she won’t need to know or worry about me.

calvinbanks1What can we expect to see from you in the coming months? Any hints?
Well, I aspire to become Helix Studios’ next big thing. Their featured porn star. The go-to top. I fully intend to begin camming shortly after my scene debuts. As for upcoming scenes…well, if they’re hot, and they can take a dick, then you can be sure that they’ll be taking every inch of mine! I have plenty of time to make my rounds with all these cute bottom boys!

Thanks, Calvin!

  • Todd

    I like his cocky (ha ha) attitude and sense of humor … (6′ 5″ in my heels) an ‘I’ve been a bit of a whore.
    … and bottoming at 13 ???

  • Zealot

    Did I hear someone mention “Mr. Banks”?

  • OverKill

    I find it ridiculous that some friends and family get upset when they find out that their child or friend does porn. It’s nothing but sex on camera.

    • Pertinax

      Wake up. It’s degrading. That’s why it is called ‘ porn ‘.

  • Andre

    Well, it doesn’t seem like he’ll be writing the next great American novel, so he probably picked the right profession.

  • FrenchBug

    I don’t mean to be snarky but “fairly popular in a short amount of time”?
    Wasn’t his first solo released last week and his first scene yesterday? What is the criteria for “popular” here?

  • DrunkEnough

    “Actually, since getting my name out there, I’ve been a bit of a whore.”

    Actually, you’re a literal whore, since you have sex for money, but we’re all very happy about it.

  • Maximus

    I live in Mass. I know his type. I’m not a fan.

    • KellyMichelleLatoyaLataviaminu

      By “type” you mean fuck boy? He said it on his twitter. He seems like the fuck boy type….

      • FrenchBug

        At the risk of vindicating Zach’s accusation that I have reading comprehension issues, what’s a “fuck boy” in this context?

        • KellyMichelleLatoyaLataviaminu

          In this context, I used the term “fuck boy” to describe what he appears to be; a Narcissistic play boy who gets around. He’s not interested in relationships, only instant gratification. He may end up breaking hearts in his sexcapades and not care as long as he got his hookup. Do you need me to further explain or is that enough??

          • FrenchBug

            Got it. Thanks.

          • Maximus

            You summed it up PERFECTLY!

          • Eric AS

            You mean he’s 18 and atractive?

          • BGB

            So basically he is exactly like EVERY hot 18 year old guy on the planet ( gay or straight)?? Got it.

    • Mike Julius

      Agreed. Sounds like a Fuckboy Extraordinaire.

      but no thanks

    • Stephen

      Maximus…you’re in Mass too??? :’O

      • Maximus

        Yes, but I was raised by neo-hippies on the west coast, which I like to believe has prevented me from devolving into a total Masshole……

        • Stephen

          I’m glad I’m not the only one who dislikes Mass Gays…I’m trying to get to Cali as fast as possible.

          • Galaxy_Scribe

            Because we’re so much nicer?

          • Stephen

            Because Asians actually have a chance in some Cali communities. :’/

          • 1234

            I hope you escape from MA as soon as possible

          • Stephen

            Me too! Need to save for 2-3 more years and then I’m off to LA.

          • Maximus

            Don’t expect people to be radically different. People are generally awful no matter where you go.

          • 1234

            True, but I find Californians and New Yorkers to be generally tolerable, nicer. Or at least they’e more used to dealing w/different peoples

          • Maximus

            In regard to how they interact with people on the street? Yes, people in Massachusetts are not friendly. That’s surface-level stuff though.

          • 1234

            I don’t think it’s just the gay people in MA, I think it’s the whole state. Racist trash & that disgusting accent. Soory- I digress

        • RavensNationFlacco05

          He reminds me of a Menendez Brother…..His leaving the house story kinda matches one of many of Vadim Blacks,

    • 1234

      I’m so terribly sorry that you live there

      • Maximus

        I actually love where I live. Mass has enough positive attributes (a highly educated population, history, scenic environment, progressive politics, proximity to NYC, the country’s best doctors, Tom Brady and his supreme sexiness) to outweigh its negative attributes (Massholes, snowstorms).

        • 1234

          Progressive politics- does that help w/agroup of very socially conservative people (my experience, especially in regards to race, sorry)?

          • Maximus

            New Englanders in general tend to be liberal when it comes to politics, but conservative in how they present themselves in public (except in and around bars/clubs after 5pm). In terms of social conflict, I’d say that people are much more conscious of class than they are of race.

          • 1234

            Thanks for your replies

  • Joey

    Cool to see young confident gay tops. He’s cute, funny, has a nice dick. Good for him.

    Dat hair tho. So bad. :(

  • Galaxy_Scribe

    Jesus Christ the ego. Life is gonna slap him hard when his metabolism slows down

    • Pertinax

      He only has nineteen, thinks the world belongs to him and everything he’ll do will be all right. He didn’t realise that he started life by the wrong path.

      • Galaxy_Scribe

        I have no problem with porn stars, but this kid clearly thinks he hung the moon. Dude, your dick is big, but 8.5 is not unheard of. Calling it euphoric? I’ve had bigger. Multiple times.

      • Luca

        I think it’s way too early to say he “started by the wrong path”. He’s young, he’s enjoying life -as he should-, he’s having success and he has a relatively serious job. He could do a lot worse.

    • RavensNationFlacco05

      Life is gonna smack any of (Not this guy yet ) these self absorbed porn whores in the face when they can’t keep up going to the gym every day. I have seen what happens to guys bodies who spend all day in the gym and even stop for a month. Bye Bye to that muscle look. I am waiting for the day Ryan Rose the self describe “Gay Male Porn Icon” (haha) loses his stamina. Looks fade….cocky asshats.

  • Galaxy_Scribe

    Huge following, Zach? You have 10x the followers he does

  • Mike Julius

    “…I guarantee you my friends and I could out smoke anyone”

    That sounded like a challenge to me, Tom Faulk. Do you accept?

  • Sed

    The latest Helix Hitler youth :-)

  • Myko

    So basically he is in a low paid job, no real career prospects , so he realises he is cute, and can get paid for having sex (without having to escort – although that will probably follow in a year or two), and whilst “getting himself out there” he might find a sugar daddy to give him the life he would never get otherwise.

    Good on him. If you got it , flaunt it

  • V Smith

    For an 18 year old stud his dick doesn’t look all that hard in his scene with Tyler Hill.

    • von schlomo

      I haven’t watched his scene with Tyler yet, but I’ll take the rock hard 7 incher over the spongey 8.5 any day. At 18, being rock hard in your pants as the wind gently blows by is par for the course.

  • Badger

    Can’t say I have read about a more self absorbed little dickhead. “I wish the best of luck to the one who eventually holds my heart” ??? Geez what a creep.

  • RavensNationFlacco05

    Off Topic for 1 second: There hasn’t been anything on RR in a while and today I saw this!!!

    Here is RR answering a question from one of his fans on askfm –

    Q)Does your mother and your family knows you are a porn gay star.

    A)Yes it’s kind of hard hiding the fact you one of the biggest gay sex icons.

    Me) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! Is RR one of the BIGGEST GAY SEX ICONS? PFFFFT!!

  • RavensNationFlacco05

    As for this—Blech..it’s.Like having sex with a 12 yr old. I like MEN. No Twinks Allowed.

  • nick

    oh no, it’s “son of Brute Club”

  • Sed

    Perhaps my Hitler youth remark was a bit harsh. I just meant that all of the Helix models look a like. They’ve started to release scenes on Fridays featuring a bunch of bland looking twinks.

    I can look on the web every day and see a rainbow coalition of hot twinks they could choose from but I digress.

    Calvin himself seems harmless enough.

  • RavensNationFlacco05

    I have never heard anyone say “I can smoke out anyone” Dude you are on!! So Stupid. Where do these fucking 19yr olds get this cocky attitude from. He sounds like a douche.

  • RavensNationFlacco05

    What is a “Masshole”

    The top definition from UrbanDictionary.com has this to say about “massholes”:

    1. For residents of Massachusetts, it is an achieved title for drving faster, being wreckless, cutting other drivers off often, and having no patience for other drivers on the road.

    2. For non-residents of Massachusetts, it is a term of dislike for the people of Massachusetts that drive like an asshole.

    In short – many residents of Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut feel that all residents of Massachusetts are massholes. You don’t mind that, right? Because by becoming a resident, you’ll probably pick up some of the habits chronicled on this site.

    AS for the comment about his Mom “So, I’ll move out and start my own life where she won’t need to know or worry about me.” She is your fucking MOM !! Mom’s worry every day about their kids. You are so self absorbed to think that just because you left your house at 18 that your Mom is just going to forget you? WOW. If he can dismiss his Mom like that I would never trust him in my life.

  • Luca

    I haven’t found the interview as bad as several of the commenters here… he’s 18, he’s entitled to be cocky and a whore, he’ll have time to settle down or to humble himself. For now, I wish him to enjoy his success, hoping that in some port of his mind he knows that, well you know, it won’t last forever.

    • Maximus

      That type of person doesn’t change. They only become more adroit at initially concealing how awful they are. Trust a bitch—me—when she tell you she know.

        you’d be surprised. People can change in unexpected ways, especially 18 years olds.

        Of course there’s also the possibility he won’t change.
