The gay porn industry for many years has been used to one or two particular aesthetics: lean (twink) or muscle. Hunter Scott, otherwise known as Monster Cub, is here to let everyone know that all types are not only welcomed within the industry… but desired and appreciated as well.
Hunter has developed quite a big name for himself in the bear porn world. He has been featured in several scenes from top studios like BearFilms and Pantheon, and even got to work with the unbelievably handsome Colby Jansen.
It hasn't always been easy for him to navigate this complicated industry. He's had to deal with a ton of body shamers and haters along the way who have done whatever they can to dim his shine. Sadly for them, its not working, as he continues to grow his gay porn empire in South Florida while keeping an adorable grin on his face the entire time.
Hunter sat down with me to discuss how he got involved in the industry, avoiding the haters and just how amazing that Colby scene was.
How did you find yourself in the adult industry in the first place?
I wanted to get a taste for it when I was 19. Unfortunately, I lived in South Carolina and knew nothing about bear porn. When I applied to Sean Cody or Falcon Studios… they just weren't interested in a guy my size. But then I moved to Fort Lauderdale when I was 24. Within the first month I had producers from Pantheon and BearFilms approach me out at the bar. I was hesitant at first because I was trying to date someone who thought selling sex was soulless. We didn't work out obviously. So about 6 months into living there I did my first scene with Pantheon. Manhunt Daily wrote an article about me and the rest is history.
Was there anyone you looked up to as an inspiration prior to going in?
Colby Jansen. Alessio Romero. Tober Brandt. Jake Deckard. And now I've worked with 2 of them.
The gay porn industry is primarily known for men who have a muscular physique. Do you find that those times have changed with the emergence of bears within it?
I'm a firm believer that there is someone for everyone. Bears, trans, black, old… we all have someone who's into us. Mainstream gay porn still holds its slim and lean aesthetic. However, there has been this general migration of status quo from when I started watching porn. Guys are realizing metrosexuality is not the most attractive lifestyle to lead and can be quite hard on one's self esteem to keep up. I'm glad I'm giving guys an outlet to be themselves and feel sexy performing. After all, having sex on camera puts us all in a vulnerable position.
Have you ever been fat shamed on social media for doing what you do because you don't fit a certain mold?
Of course. There are trolls coming for me all the time. Plenty of fat shaming. Haters are motivators though. There's a lot of sad lonely guys in the world filled with pain and talking trash is the only outlet they have. It’s best to pay them no mind because they aren't paying my bills.
You just did a scene with uber-popular Colby Jansen, what was that like?
It was a long process. I had fantasized and prepared for the moment for months. Once I met him….in his house…. I melted from being starstruck. He was fantastic to work with. But more than anything we were genuinely into each other and enjoyed one another fully. We still talk and will work together again in the future. Potentially a Thanos vs Thor flip flop.
Is there anyone you are dying to work with, albeit a star or producer, in the near future?
Right now I'm talking to Jonah Fontana, Pheonix Fellington, Bryan Knight and Giovanni Santiago. But lots of new guys coming soon as well from my recent trips to Vegas, Montreal, Dallas, and Atlanta.
What does the future hold for the Monster Cub brand?
I'm working on merchandise, including dildos and t-shirts, as more YouTube videos. I'm also working on a series of bear porn fairy tale parodies. I started it with Little Red Riding Cock, next will be Slutty Cub and the 3 Bears this summer. I'm also planning my Halloween and Christmas scenes at the moment.
