It’s nice when people love their work as much as we love to watch it, and GuySpy’s Man for September, Jonathan Agassi, is so nice to look at you’re likely to fall back just gazing at him.
The 28-year-old USA-born/Israel-raised Michael Lucas porn actor revels in his job, loves his co-workers, and loves the, ahem, perks. “I’m a huge exhibitionist,” he says. “I love showing off my skin. I love the attention, the world traveling, and people having me as their sex fantasy.”
Jonathan’s pouty lips don’t lie, even if English isn’t his first language—he didn’t say it, but we think love is. Although he’s in a relationship (yeah, get over it), he’s quick to point out the problematic porn repercussions.
“It is hard if you’re trying to build it with someone who is not in the business,” he says. “It’s much harder to explain to your non-porn hubby that it’s only a job. On the other hand, to maintain a relationship with someone in the porn industry? Impossible!”
And then there’s the all-too-common belief that if you’re naked on-camera, your body is up for grabs … literally. “I kind of even understand why,” says Jonathan on guys who cop an unsolicited feel. “I’m not cool with people being rude and grabbing whatever parts of me, thinking that’s appropriate. But I always step back, smiling and say, in the nicest way, ‘Don’t touch this.’”
The tattooed lover boy has just signed on for three more years at Lucas—“I’m so looking forward to lots more great porn”—but does think there’s a time frame for people in his business. “I would say seven to eight years is a good time to do porn and use the max of it,” says Jonathan. “Only a little few could do more than that, I think. It’s hard maintaining your body to always be fit, and always to come up with something the audience has not seen before.
In the porn meantime, Jonathan does offer up one part of his job that’s difficult. “The hard-cock standing-up pictures. Hate it!”
Ah, Jonathan, if ever you need a helping hand …
