Exclusive: Gay Porn Newcomer Steven Lee Talks Forecasting The Weather, Fucking On Camera, And More

Posted January 20, 2019 by with 24 comments

stev1lwGay porn newcomer Steven Lee was a featured “Newcomer To Watch” earlier this month, and now it’s time to get to know him a little more in this Str8Up exclusive Q&A. Thanks to Steven for taking the time to chat!

DxDAEv8W0AEwXZ1Str8UpGayPorn: Hi Steven! Let’s start with some basic info. How old are you, how tall are you, where are you originally from, are you single, and where are you based out of now?
Steven Lee: I’m 27, and I’m 6’2”. I was born in Newnan, Georgia but grew up in Williamsburg, Ohio. I now live in Denver, Colorado. I’ve been dating a wonderful stud named Jake for the last eight months, and he’s very supportive of me.

When did you decide to become a performer, and tell us about the process of applying?
I decided to start doing porn last August. I applied to all the big studios, but Falcon got back to me immediately and offered a scene that month with Skyy Knox. Unfortunately, I’m in grad school and had a big class presentation on the day they wanted me, so I had to decline. But then they asked me to do a scene in September, and I was able to. That’s the only scene I have out so far, with Woody Fox and Grant Ryan.

98672_09You recently shared that you’ve worked on camera before, as a weatherman for a local ABC affiliate in Texas. So I have to know, which is more difficult: Forecasting the weather or performing in a gay porn scene?
Presenting the weather and forecasting is much more difficult, in my opinion. Forecasting can be very complicated, but on top of that, talking on camera with no script for three minutes, while someone is giving you time cues, is even harder. It certainly takes a lot of practice and I got very good at it, but it took years to perfect.

So, overall, porn is easier?
Yes, porn is much easier. But I think part of that is because I have the TV background, so I’m used to focusing on something else while being given instructions in my ear and being in front of the camera.

And what made you decide to leave the news business?
Despite what people think, news doesn’t pay well. I made $23,000 a year at my first job and $36,000 at my second job. At my second job, I was the highest paid 20-something newscaster in the market. And that was a medium-sized news market. On top of the pay, the hours are brutal. It wasn’t worth it, even though it was my dream job growing up.

And once you left, you transitioned to porn. Were you at all concerned with how people might react to you becoming an adult performer?
I already had an OnlyFans and was still a gogo dancer, so I was finally like, why not?! And no, I give zero fucks what people say about me. Someone is always gonna talk that talk, so you might as well do what you want.

DiZnD7kVAAIqhvJIt’s only been a few months since your debut, but have you been recognized in public yet? Also, how has it been amassing such a devoted fan base in such a short amount of time?
I’ve been recognized before for TV and for my Instagram, but not for my porn yet. I love all the love I’ve been getting, and it’s been super awesome to see. Thank you for all the good vibes!

What’s your favorite thing and what’s the worst or most challenging thing about being on social media and interacting with so many fans?
My favorite part is how it connects you with cool people in other cities and countries. I’ve made a lot of friends. My least favorite thing is how two dimensional it is. My humor is very dry, so I can’t crack jokes on social media without looking like a bitch.

DxFcpFvUUAAtSdHBefore your first scene, what did you think it would be like filming, and did it go as you expected?
I’m lucky enough to have known a couple porn stars before getting into porn. We all live in Denver and I asked them a bunch of questions, so nothing really came as a surprise. That first scene though, I was not ready for Woody Fox’s dreamy Australian accent.

Are you open with your family and friends about your work as a gay porn performer?
My family and I don’t really speak often. I ran away at 19, so my friends are my family. They do kind of know what I do, but again, we rarely talk. My friends all know, including my straight female roommate, who loves it. I’m very open about it, and my experience has been wonderful so far. Everyone in the industry has been a complete sweetheart to me.

Duc3AiEX4AADwNeFinally, do you have more shoots planned in the coming months?
I just filmed this week with NextDoorStudios, and at the end of the month, I’ll be shooting with Men.com. Things are going great, and I feel so lucky.

Thanks again, Steven, and we look forward to all your upcoming scenes!

[Falcon Studios]

  • Peter Smith

    Ran away at 19? I think that’s called moving out, dude.

    • PaulieP

      yessssssssss! ha! thanks for the morning laugh…

    • terrencemoss

      no. that’s running way.
      and there’s no need for you to be a dick about his story.

      • Peter Smith

        No, it’s not running away. It’s moving out. He was 19, not 12. He was an adult. I moved out after high school. I was 18, not a runaway. So kiss my hole, dick.

        • gaysiantwink

          …Running away kinda involves cutting ties with the people you were close to and moving away from your family. Not exactly the same as just moving out.

        • Edward

          Dude, I thought the same thing. Ran away, my ass. MOVED OUT. DEPARTED. FLEW THE COOP. All apply to grown men leaving. Running away has a kiddish connotation.

  • Stuart

    Watching him do the weather report and for some reason I keep expecting him to suddenly break out into a “It’s raining men” lip sync 🤣.
    He’s got a good body and sounds like a good attitude too, hopefully there is no inner cunty douchebag waiting to be unleashed.

  • mtopndc

    He’s Hot! On his Just for Fans account HE needs to bottom!! That would seal the deal for me…!

  • Jbj

    What a stud…looking forward to seeing more of him in the future! 🔥😍

  • B.C.

    I’m confused about finance. Don’t they have day jobs or other primary means of earning. How many scenes do you have to film per month for $40000 year salary?
    Oh, I definitely agree on Woody Fox topic. He’s a full package.

    • Johnny

      My info’s a little outdated, but you’d have to do a scene every 3 weeks or so to pull in that much from professional porn alone.

      He said he’s got an OnlyFans too. That could probably bring in $5-15k/year, especially with the extra exposure that doing pro porn will give him. That means a scene a month + OnlyFans should earn him that much. Totally doable.

  • Xzamilloh

    He looks like if Davey Wavey did the 10 year Challenge.

    • GayhawkAZ

      Why would you insult him by comparing him to Davey? 😛

  • 仮面痴漢

    an advice for all the studios out there: there are some hot underpaid newsmen on the market, find them, and pay them lots of money

  • Jon

    Oh god he’s going to film with Men. Let’s keep him in our prayers.

    • von schlomo

      My tepid interest sunk when I got to Men dot com and Next Door isn’t much better. Even tho Sean Cody is a shell of its former self, seems like these savvy friends in Denver would have maybe suggested he aim high(er) and then settle for the scraps if no one nibbled at his CV.

      I think if he left ALL his body hair alone that might make up for the un-amazing face. And no limits. None of this top only shit. He’s not nearly special enough to put up with that…not even for a few months.

  • bo69

    This man is super hot and a potential big star, nice interview

  • Kanaka

    Dreamy. I’m excited for his Next Door scene but Men will probably fuck that one up.

  • Johnny

    Not typically my type, but he’s really cute. Nice cock and body too.

  • e jerry powell

    So the Millennials have a Steve Marks, and this time Oprah doesn’t care!

    Steve Marks was very porno boy-next-door back in the day; he seemed like a sweetheart.

  • Lance

    He has an onlyfans and a justforfans page. The justforfans page has previews. gaygringo.

  • JT

    This guy is beyond hot and I think he’ll go far. Falcon was smart to contact him right away, I wonder if they tried to get him as an exclusive? Would’ve been a good question for him. But what’s up with that tat under his arm? Strange saying. Anyhow I hope he films bb for next door. Men will do something lame with Johnny Rapid no doubt, as hot as that pairing could be if it was done right.

  • Seth Sexton

    Okay, him being a former newscaster (weatherman) makes his porn debut even hotter. He actually went to college and studied meteorology only to become a porn performer. That’s kinda hot 🥵

  • Marco Sartori

    nds and men?

    i cry.
