Sure, Adam Ramzi is sexy.
His luminescent eyes are the color of honey. His thick, dark beard is begging for scratchy kisses. And his strong, lightly-furred body will give just about anyone – myself included – some serious daddy issues.
But when it comes to erotic content, Adam brings a lot more to the table than good looks. He brings authenticity, intention and charm – and translates all of it to film. It’s enchanting to work with Adam, and mesmerizing to watch his videos.
The Peach Scene, a tribute to Call Me By Your Name, was Adam’s first Himeros.tv video. Last week, we debuted Adam’s second film titled Pleasure Safari. And, in the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing five more videos featuring Adam Ramzi. So let’s get to know him better.
You’ve described Adam Ramzi as your alter ego. Who is Adam Ramzi?
I use the term “alter ego” very loosely, and more in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way. I understand that a lot of performers consider their career in porn as a “persona,” but really it’s all me. Adam Ramzi is just a label I’ve chosen for the side of me that puts his sexuality on display for the world to see, but it’s very much a part of who I am. It’s a part of the story.
Are aspects of your personal life and experiences reflected in Adam? How so?
Interesting question! I guess it depends on what I’m shooting, or how I’m participating in the public’s perception of me. Sometimes it’s more of a performance for the camera in which I try to channel as much authenticity as I can, given the circumstances – my scene partner, how we’re directed, the setting, et cetera. Other times, there’s more to it, and different layers are revealed.
What drives you to create erotic content?
The entire reason I entered porn was to explore a side of my own sexuality as fearlessly and publicly as possible. There is so much shame around sex, and I’ve always wanted to engage in a narrative that challenged people’s views around sex, and maybe even my own views. My own shame. I think creating erotic content and releasing it to the public… it was like the ultimate act of liberating myself from that shame, turning it on its ear and releasing it.
Why did you want to be a part of Himeros.tv?
I saw Davey Wavey give the keynote address at the brunch the morning of this year’s GayVN awards. I just so appreciated what he had to say about the responsibility we have as creators of erotic content, and the opportunity we have to heal viewers as well as turn them on. I introduced myself, congratulated him on his presentation, we had a great conversation and something clicked. He asked me if I was interested in potential future shoots, and it wasn’t even a question for me. I already knew I’d say yes, and my guess is he did too.
How is working with Himeros.tv different from a ‘typical’ porn shoot?
The word that keeps coming to mind when I think of my experience with Himeros is “intention.” There’s something so intentional about the content that Himeros creates. It’s like instructional erotic art. Like a series of suggested fantasy scenarios you can experience with your partner, or partners, doubling as art. A lot of studios are changing up the format of their content, because people’s tastes are changing, and Himeros is providing something different right out the gate. It’s exciting.
What are some of the barriers or obstacles in erotica or gay sex that you want to challenge?
That’s a tough one. I guess I’ll answer this way: If there’s anything I feel I’ve been actively trying to encourage about gay sex lately is to drop the idea of “top” and “bottom” as nouns, and instead use them as verbs. I don’t understand this need we have to label and identify ourselves. “Are you top or bottom?” is a question that is guaranteed to make me cringe. I like to top, and I like to bottom, depending on the chemistry between me and my partner, or partners. Sometimes it’s one, sometimes the other, and sometimes it’s both.
Is Adam Ramzi a work in progress? Are you still evolving? What’s next?
Everyone is a work in progress, always, until the end. I recognize this now more than ever, and I encourage everyone to be aware of this and embrace it, so as not to be tripped up by our flaws and our triggers. We as queer men will do better when we accept our vulnerable side and use it for good, and I learn that lesson again and again.
