Having always wanted to have a photoshoot, Dustin contacted me though LINE and arranged a date for audition after some brief discussion. Slender as he is, Dustin is not as thin as I thought; moreover, he also has a husky voice like I do. His voice is as low as the kind of voice we would hear from a MC in an award ceremony. In the meantime, he’s quite a shy boy.
Through the eyes of a photographer, he can discern the other side of his models, which aren’t that ostensibly seen in their life. Shy as Dustin is, he exhibited toughness and fierce in front of the camera. Some audience said that Dustin looks quite similar to Chuck︎, the charismatic sailor, when they viewed these photos. I would say it has somehitng to do with how I interpret male bodies. Perhaps, both Dustin and Chuck share the same untamed nature. Let’s continute fathoming male nude photoshoot.
JAO：How long have you been working out? Any tips to share in terms of abs training? Dustin：I didn’t go to the gym. I started working out at home about three years ago. I constantly do sit ups and I squeeze my belly whenever I’m free.
JAO：You make it sound so unbelieveably effortless. Is it possible that you have rather obvious abs since you were little? Dustin：Not really. In fact, I was quite chubby during elementary school. I participated in the track team after a failed admiration, then I got thinner.
JAO：Appearence, body figure and quality of photos, what’s your priority? Dustin：Quality, appearance then body figure. The quality of your works is the reason that I want you to be my photographer. Appearance definitely can attract my attention though. As to body figure, I think that’s something everybody obtains as long as he works out a lot.
JAO：Do you talk about sex with your friends? To what extent of closeness do they need to be? Dustin：I think there’s a huge contrast of me regarding that issue. I get so shy when talking to unfamiliar friends even if we barely touch the subject, on the other hand, I’m usually the one bringing up sex when talking to close friends.
JAO：What kind of topics do you talk about? Dustin：I’m curious about people’s sex life. I would ask what kind of position do they find comfortable, novel ways to seduce guys and porns.
JAO：Which part in sex do you stress? Wearing condomns, position, location, atmosphere, level of satisfaction, hygiene. Order them from the most important to the least important. Dustin：Hygiene, atmosphere, location, wearing condomns, level of satisfaction and finally positionl. I like people to be clean, it’s even better if they smell good.
JAO：What kind of music would you use to describe your lust for sex? Heavy metal, Rock&roll, Classical music and EDM. Dustin：Classica music, where there’s silence and climax.
JAO：What kind of porn do you prefer? Dustin：Japanese porn. Athletic ones and the ones involve sneaky attempts. To be more precise, sneaky attemps are like conducting sexual conduct without the other half knowing or force sex. It really turns me on.
JAO：Have you ever fantasized Taiwanese porn? Dustin：Not really, I don’t normally watch Taiwanese porn, plus, it’s more seductive listening to Japnese compared with Mandarin.
JAO：What if your friends want to take part in porngraphy? Would you agree or disagree? Why? Dustin：If that’s his interest, I would support him. If he’s doing it only out of money, then I would be opposed to it. With that being said, who really has an interest in taking part in pornography? That’s a bit weird.
JAO：There will always be positive and negative comments toward an artwork. What do you react to comments such as “Nudity to gain fame”? Dustin：I would ignore them, because that was not my intention at all. I wanted to leave some records of myself, and I couldn’t think of better ways to do so than photos. If people can get famous simply by displaying their nuditiy, there’ll be celebrities everywhere.
JAO：You displayed strong vibe and fierece in the photots we took, which is hugely different comapered with your instagram photos. Is this what you might look like when you’re having sex? Dustin：Dustin：Now that you mention it, I think you’re maing a point. I’m quite aggressive during sex.
JAO：Could you sepcify how “aggressive” you’re during sex? Dustin：Gosh, I’m way to shy to give you the details. All I could say is I’m really aggressive.
JAO：How would you share the photos with your friends, and how would you elaborate on them? Dustin：Probably “The other side of me.” I told my friends that the photoshoot was much less scarier than I had imagined. Probaly because I was so stressed out, worrying about you might chew me out if I didn’t rise to the occasion. But I was definitely overthinking it, the process was free and easy.
JAO：When looking back this year, do you think this photoshoot would be one of your memorable moment? Dustin：Absolutely. I actually plucked up a lot of courage to participate in this photoshoot. None of my friends have ever done anything like this. I enjoy doing things I don’t dare to do or I’ve never tried before, that’s why I took the shot.
