Hey everyone. It’s Daddy Rod and I’m back with Pillow Talk 🙂 This interview is with a popular porn star Shujenko Blaze. He got his start in porn years ago but became very popular back in the 2000’s with his Xtube videos. I recently had the opportunity to interview him and below is our interview. Enjoy! 🙂
- Tell us about yourself Shujenko (age, where you from, etc.)
Where do I start, I’m a Kentucky native, born in the city of Bowling Green, Kentucky. It’s an hour outside Nashville, TN right on the state lines. I’m the oldest of three kids and the only Boy. Believe it or not, I was a shy kid, but I would always get out there and dance my ass off LOL. I was part of the graduating class of 2003 from Bowling Green High School. I have been an out masculine brother since the age of 15.
- I am curious to know, along with some of my readers, how you got your porn name?
Well my name comes from the story of a warrior from a popular video game called Mortal Kombat, a warrior by the name of Shujinko was the champion of Earth, thinking he was doing the right thing to save to world, he later discovered he was just a pawn in the doings of evil. My original stage name was to be Pairo but there were so many Pyros out at the time. I said if I was going to do porn I wanted an uncommon name but with meaning, I felt I could relate to the warriors story a lot so I chose the name Shujenko.
- How did you get into the adult industry? How long have you been in the adult industry?
I started in the industry at the age of 18 with Enrique Cruz at that time I went by the name Lil’ Red yes I am the original Lil’ Red a lot of people don’t know that I was featured in Thug TV Vol.1 later renamed Bootylicious I believe. I wanted to do something out of the ordinary something that no one from Kentucky would ever think of. By that time I was very confident in my sexuality, discovered I had a love for porn. So I said hmm why not be a porn star, I never thought in a million years that I would get a response back from Enriquecruz.com because EC and Bacchus were the hottest companies at that time, and it wasn’t easy to get into porn back then, when it was almost like an art.
- What was your first day on the set of porn movie like?
At first I was very nervous, not because of the cameras, I was afraid of who I had to do my scene with. I was thinking ok, am I going to have to fake this, man please let it be somebody sexy and behold when this sexy Latino name Luis came in the room. My thought automatically went to, damn ok where is the camera; get this sexy Latino in the bed with me NOW. LOL
- Once you started doing porn, was it all you thought it would be?
Well it has been and experience I don’t take it to heart as much as some do. I mean I enjoy being a normal person. There’s more to me than just doing porn you know what I mean? But regardless I always said if I did become popular I would never let it go to my head and I haven’t, can’t be too interesting if porn is the only thing you have going for yourself not knocking anyone that’s just my opinion.
- Does your family know you are in the adult film business? If so, what are their thoughts?
My entire family knows about my films, my mother actually saw my first film believe it or not LOL. She mentions it when she might come across a pop up ad with me on it or something LOL. I remember she came downstairs recently and said that she saw an ad with me on it and said “ I didn’t know your movies were sale for 60.00 a piece LOL.
- As you know, I am launching my own production company, MEN Entertainment, which will put a positive, mature and fresh face of Men of Color in porn! You were gracious enough to be in my first scene. So I thank you. Today, much of the porn featuring black and Latino models are mainly based on negative stereotypes perpetuated by both whites and black/latinos. What is your take on this?
I think it’s great man, the idea is fresh, new and clean and honestly I look forward to working with MEN Entertainment (hint hint) LOL
- What changes would you like to see in the porn industry?
Honestly I would like to see some companies be a little careful about who the people they choose to model for them. I would like to see a little more maturity in the industry. It’s business! it’s all about good times and people drooling all over you, you are selling an image at least make it look good! Don’t fuck it up with a uncalled ego trip just because you were in one movie LOL.. And if you going to do it, do it right. Make it look good! Give the people what they want to see; anybody can have boring sex.
- Condom-less sex you can say is becoming somewhat the norm again! Breed It Raw is known for only Bareback/Raw films. There is a big debate whether or not people performing Bareback/Raw porn encourages viewers to perform “unsafe” sexual practices. What is your take on their analysis? And the return raw/bareback comeback in porn?
No comment on Black Rayne, love them though no bad feeling between us. I look at it like this…. everybody that signs these contracts are over the age of 21! They know full well what barebacking is, what its all about and the risk! No one is putting a gun to anyone’s head and making the fuck with no hat on. If that’s what you like go for it but be prepared for the what if’s come on folks its 2012. You know what it is and we all know how ignorant and narrow-minded gay men can be. Everybody has to find an issue with everything just to make themselves feel better or superior in this lifestyle in some shape form or fashion LOL … It is what it is man.
- You can say one of the downsides of being an adult performer is the barrage of negative comments they get from the public on them being “porn stars” especially those who do Bareback/Raw films. How do you deal with that criticism?
Yes I’ve experienced that too but then again, these people don’t know me! They only know my body and what I can do on camera. Last time I checked I was adult and my parents are in Kentucky LOL. We are all doing what the rest of the fools do. We are just doing it on film and not leaving empty-handed LOL. If you don’t like it don’t deal with because trust me it’s too many people on this planet to be worried about SOME people. I’m not asking for anyone’s approval nor do I need it. Everybody is entitled their opinion but when it comes to stupidity and negativity it goes in one ear and out the other.
- What has your experience been like working with smaller “boutique” studios (i.e. Breed It Raw, RawRods, etc.)?
For the most part it has been interesting and fun. Made friends along the way, made enemies along the way. Helped me grow a lot. Working with RawRods was cool; there are some funny dudes on their team. Still have love for my Black Rayne family no love loss.
- Would you be open to work with other companies? If so, what would be the criteria before you work with them?
Sure man!… I’m open to working with other companies. All I ask if that you be about your business. Try not to mix too much business with pleasure and not have drama on your team! Other than that, Let’s do some business!. I will represent your companies name the best I can.
- Name some porn stars whom you have really enjoyed working with!
Hands down Ian Marx! I still get aroused about that scene I did with him. Honestly, I could have kept him in bed with me for days after that.. LOL. Working with Sexxi Black was great too. The sex was hot and even afterward , we were cool with each other and like homeboys! He always showed me respect and I always showed him respect. But Ian is at the top of the list LOL.
- What porn stars would you like to work with that you haven’t so far?
I never really thought about it. I’ll work with any of the Raging Stallion or Hot Desert Knights models any day LOL. Black from Taggaz, Hot Rod sexy ass brother but he’s still cool and level headed too major turn on for a brotha LOL. I have a soft spot for Leon Masters from BlackBreeders too and Lance Longwood.
- In most of your films you are a bottom. When not on film, are you a strict bottom or versatile?
I am 1000 percent versatile people. Don’t let the movies fool you LOL, you better ask about me!!! Naw I’m just being silly but seriously I’m fully versatile. I like both sides of the field not just one or another I gotta have both.
- You have mainly done both 1-1 scenes and 3somes. Which do you prefer more? If your private life, do you prefer 1-1? 3somes/Groups?
I’m comfortable with either one man, on film and in my personal life.
- What’s your favorite position to fuck? Get fucked?
Ass up face down!!! Two Times LOL
- Would you star in a Bi or Str8 porn movie? If so, any str8 stars in particular you would work with?
I can answer that quickly Mr. Marcus, Sean Michaels, and Brian Pumper
- I know in your private life you are into some heavy fetish play. You care to share with your fans what fetishes you get into?
LOL …You got me blushing now. Yes I do have some fetishes that some people aren’t ready for LOL. I’m a huge leather addict. Yes I am a leather pig. Give the leather, toys, harness, boots, dungeons, sex machines, pumps, cock rings, boots, jockstraps, fisting, watersports YESSIR LOL. That’s my shit.
- Are you willing to do these fetishes on film?
- What turns you on about a man – both sexually or non sexually!
I like dudes that are cool and know who they are without trying to be so hard or trying to front or sell an image! I like a dude that just goes for it whatever it is. A real dude that’s not afraid to experience things and is man enough to say yeah I get fucked. A dude that’s a dude and can still be him.
- Are you single? In a relationship? If you are in a relationship, how has it affected your relationship being in the adult industry?
I am engaged, it doesn’t affect us at all! We do what we do together. If we make friends in the process cool; if not, its still us together at the end of the day and we don’t allow bad elements in our circle!
- How and when did you lose your virginity?
I lost my virginity to a girl at 12 LOL, I lost my virginity to a guy at the age of 14, he was 32 to be honest my best friend’s next door neighbor LOL, I thought he was fine as hell he turned me on so bad at the first sight of him so I approached him. 2 weeks after that I was at his house everyday after basketball. I never really told anyone about him until I was 18.
- What hobbies do you enjoy? What do you like to do in your spare time?
A danceaholic, I’m a dude but again I can dance my ass off. I huge video game and movie addict especially my anime. Like to fish, watch basketball and football, like to draw and paint. Heavy into web designing and building computers, music is the air I breathe. I wouldn’t be able to make it without it. I like cars, and traveling. Just love having fun period as long as it’s safe you feel me? Well not too, too safe LOL
- What is something your fans might be shocked to know about you!
I have a set of extra nipples pay attention to my photos next time LOL.
- With the election season in full swing, what issue is most important to you? Least important?
Really don’t have any concerns as long as the person does there job right. You know no matter who we elect people are always going to find something wrong with them even after they vote for them.
- You haven’t done a film in almost a year or so. Any particular reason for your absence?
Honestly I had to take a step back from everything for a while was getting caught up with the wrong people, surrounding myself with the wrong elements, was in a very bad relationship at the time not because of the porn. But because I was foolish and naïve and was just dealing a lot of fucked up people and was starting to loose sight of me as a person.
