Hard Work

Doing it in front of the cameras, with a director demanding, “More ass! More tongue! More moaning!,” is daunting enough for real-life porn couple Aden and Jordan Jaric. Which means the dirty-doing duo, known collectively in the porn realm as The Jarics (their real first names united), won’t be one of the few adult film stars performing live-sex at one of ManHunt.net’s 7 Sexy Sins Tour – “It’s one thing in front of the camera,” Aden says, “but it’s a whole different story when there’s a club full of people.”
They would know. Both of the guys, who’ve been together for three-and-a-half years and will perform (but not like that!) during Memorial Day weekend at The Dunes Resort in Saugatuck, also go-go dance at a nightclub near their California pad. But at a Vancouver joint they sometimes visit, they totally lose their clothes. Club owners urge Aden, 26, and Jordan, 25, to dance around with their penises pointing to the sky, but Aden’s not thinking sex. He’s thinking work.
“I’m like, ‘Wow! I can’t get – ‘” he stops, laughing along with Jordan. “It’s so hard. Well, that’s a weird thing to say right now. It’s difficult!”
And so is porn, they say – especially when your butt needs to be touched up (and, again, not like that!).

What’s your most embarrassing onscreen moment?
Jordan: That’s a tough one. I know we’ve had some –
Aden: I know! When we were doing the 69 –
Jordan: OK, so we were doing a 69 position and Aden was eating me out – eating my ass – and there was like a razor-burn bump on my right cheek, and all of a sudden the director called, ‘Make-up!’ and I go, ‘Seriously?’ The camera was right behind me, like I wasn’t uncomfortable enough, and then (he’s) gonna scream, ‘Make-up!’? I’m like, ‘What is going wrong back there?’ The frickin’ make-up guy comes out and frickin’ touches up my tushy.

Why did you guys decide to do porn?
Aden: For all the perks. I mean, we have sex anyways; might as well get paid for it. And it’s completely different sex. We did it basically ’cause we get to travel, we get to experience things; we actually get to meet a lot of really cool people.

Has it affected your relationship at all?
Aden: I think we’ve actually gotten a lot closer and open. Like, we have no insecurities whatsoever. In the industry, you have to expect people to be extremely obnoxious or ignorant to us and not care that we’re together. And, I mean, we’ve gone through just about everything, with people like offering us money and trying to pull us aside separately and trying to get one of us to hook up without the other one and all kinds of stuff. (But) we know each other so well and we’re in love, so we don’t even really care. We really honestly laugh about it. It’s kind of funny.

So, you guys don’t want to do scenes with other guys, right?
Aden: We’ve signed exclusively to only do it together. In the contract, it says if we, Jordan and I, ever decide to bring in a third person, that’s solely our decision – and we don’t see that happening. Only because we’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback. It sends out a really strong message to the gay community that people can stay together … in any situation.

What are the differences between having sex for money and having sex for just pleasure in your own bedroom?
Aden: Work. Like, when we’re filming, it is completely different because – not really because the cameras are there, but you have a director telling you, ‘Now say this, now do this, now tell him this.’ Honestly, it’s like full-blown work.

Since you’re having sex on screen and having sex at home, do you ever get tired of it?
Jordan: It made me appreciate our real sex. It actually made me differentiate between the two: There’s sex, and then there’s making love, and it made me realize what making love is – ’cause I think I took it for granted until I started doing porn. So, it actually opened my eyes up, and I feel like it’s the same for him. It’s very difficult to have sex on camera. I don’t think I’ll ever be comfortable having sex with people in the room on camera. Like, that’s something that I don’t feel you get used to, even with time, even with experience, ’cause it’s an awkward place to put yourself in.

Do you find it hard to remember your porn name?
Jordan: So tough! I hate having an alias. I wish that we could use our real names. I actually wanted to, but they said it’s more to protect us ’cause, I guess, there’s a lot of crazy people out there.

You’ve been together for a while now. Are you guys thinking about kids?
Jordan: Actually we’ve got a closet full of baby clothes. We’re totally thinking of adopting. But we gotta obviously wait ’til we’re out of this industry, but that’s definitely a goal of (ours) for the future.

How much clothing would you say you have in there?
Jordan: I wanna say 20 right now. One’s like a Santa suit for Christmastime.

How about kid toys?
Jordan: If we bought kid toys, they would end up turning into doggie toys – ’cause we have four Pomeranians.
