We catch up with the adult film star…
By Larry Olsen
Cazden Hunter is a well-known name in the adult film industry. In just two years, he has established himself as one of the most in-demand young talents in the biz.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, where he currently resides, Cazden has go-go danced at Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco and Market Days in Chicago. He has also performed for some of the biggest studios, including Falcon Studios, Men.com and, perhaps most memorably, the fetish site KinkMen.
Cazden’s willingness to be tied up and dominated has made him a favourite with fans. He’s also extremely versatile and always up for trying new things, including the latest porn craze, pup play. He says working in the adult industry has made him realize he’s kinkier than he thought.
We caught up with him in Las Vegas at the KinkMen studios to discuss his latest film work and his new podcast, Out of the Kennel: Kink, Fetish & Queer Life.
Did you really come out in the 10th grade?
I came out as bi in the sixth grade, but in 10th or 11th grade I came out as gay. I had been only fooling around with boys for a long time, and everyone knew.
And you always dreamed of being an adult film star?
Yes! I thought it was sexy and enticing, and I viewed it as art, too. My first porn crush was on Brent Corrigan. I wanted to top him so bad. At the time, I was too scared to bottom.
What came first: film, go-go-ing or escorting?
I started go-go dancing first. Then I got into film and it seemed to go hand in hand with escorting, so I started that not too long after.
How did the first film go?
It was a bit surreal and I was a little taken aback at first because it was with a female videographer. Luckily, she was very professional and made me feel comfortable. Still, it was awkward because my scene partner was straight and he seemed uncomfortable working with me.
What are the best and worst parts of the job?
Best parts are travelling and meeting new people. I also really like live performances. The worst parts are getting up really early to prep for bottoming and having to hold awkward angles during sex.
When did you first get into kink?
My first kink was public play when I was a teen because there was no place for us to fool around. Other than that, it was my second time going to Folsom when I discovered pup play.
What attracted you to pup play?
I was immediately intrigued by it. I already acted like a puppy with my partner at the time, I just didn’t know there was a thing for it. I really enjoy building a headspace in which I’m discovering new things. Also, rolling around with other pups is fun – and the treats! My favourite treats are Tamarindo candy and berries.
You are Cybersocket’s reigning pup of the year! What does that responsibility entail?
I’m not sure! No one told me. But I take it upon myself to be friendly, open, approachable, visible and encouraging. I often offer help and advice to people who are curious about the community.
KinkMen.com plans to film more pup play scenes. Do you intend to be a part of those productions?
I do, and I hope I get to explore and bring my pup experience to the screen. I want to be involved and show pup play in the many ways it can be: pup play by pups, for pups.
What scenes have you filmed for KinkMen?
I’ve done four scenes with them: all have involved toys and being bound in some sort of way, but each had something a little different. Two were as a human and two as a pup. My first one was with Cesar Xes, which involved tickle torture. I’m actually very ticklish! My second was with Dominic Pacifico and Arturo Santos, which had some cock and ball torture. My third was as a pup with Bobby Ryker where I tried electro for the first time and some piss play. My most recent scene was with Devin Franco and that had cropping, and it was the first time I experienced a jack-off machine.
How would you describe working with Dominic Pacifico as a director?
He knows what he wants. You can tell he has a vision for the scene.
Do you plan to follow his footsteps into directing adult films?
Directing is something that has crossed my mind, but I’m not sure yet.
You and your pup handler launched a podcast!
Yes, our podcast is called “Out of the Kennel.” It is about queer life, kink, fetish, nightlife and health. Meaty Panda co-hosts and we’ve had all sorts of guests. Dominic Pacifico did the show!
Is Brent Corrigan your dream guest?
He would be fun! I like having guests in the community that I don’t know much about so I can learn new things.
What is something fans would be surprised to learn about Cazden Hunter?
I can be really shy at times.
Do you have a secret talent?
I’m really good at drawing, cooking, aggressive inline, and video games.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
My favourite thing to do in the world is snowboarding. I love it so much and I also love the mountains. The smell, the views…nothing brings me such peace. Snowboarding itself makes me feel so free and the better I get at it, the freer I feel. To be in a place in my life where I can go from the city to the mountains any time I wanted would be my ideal happiness.
What is your greatest fear?
Living a life where I stop trying.
What is your most treasured possession?
My drawings. They may not be the greatest, but they’re a part of me, and some of them I put a lot of meaning into.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
To not second-guess or doubt myself.
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
I think it would be selfishness and greed. It makes people do some of the most awful things.
When it is all said and done, how do you hope Cazden Hunter will be remembered?
As a genuine person, not defined by one thing, but who was kind, loving, understanding, and inspired others to do the same.
Cazden Hunter’s latest film takes place in a dark BDSM playroom with co-star Devin Franco. Watch it now at KinkMen.com.
