Too Hott Too Handle: The Carlito Exclusive
Who is Carlito?
Carlito is just a character who like to be watched and fulfills my fantasy of being watched as well for the pleasure for those to enjoy. I would say he is my alter ego that is only around when in front of the cameras... well, he may come out as well during my personal play time,Lol.. But none the less an Adult Entertainer, which is not who i am in my everyday living.
What made you choose the name Carlito?
Actually i didn't come up with the name, a good friend of mine named Zume did. I was fresh in the Industry at the time, and me and my boi was chillen and I guess brainstorming on ideas along w/ the industry, and I wanted to choose a name that would fit me.So basically I chose the name off my look which was the look of an Blatino individual.
A lot of people don't know that you also went by the name Sho Nuff, what caused the name change?
Well like i stated before it was just a name out the box.. I was only doing Internet porn at the time and was no one major in the industry, but i noticed that I was starting to make a name for myself and i thought that the name sho nuff was not going to fit in the vision i started to get. I was at the point where i was getting noticed by other companies and i was moving on to DVD's and majority of the work i was doing was for either a Blatino or black company, So I just ran with it.
What made you decide that you wanted to do porn?
Lol I was aware of porn. i used to sneak and watch the lil straight flicks and shit and i never knew that gay porn existed. Then one day i was online and a pop up came on my screen from typing in the wrong address in the search box, and i was introduced to gay porn. I was INFATUATED instantly! I found myself addicted. but i just wanted to know what it was like to be on the other side of the screen. it had become a fantasy.
Who can you say some of your biggest influences were in the industry and why?
Tiger Tyson and Supreme (Castro), and this is why, I was 16 yrs old and was amazed on the attraction and the fantasy that just started forming in my head. I just couldn't believe the thoughts i was imagining on a regular... Then the attention i guess too... They were well known, and I'm sure i wasn't the only one with the thoughts, because their appearance was something like celebrities in the gay community! I don't know about anyone else but,the fact that being able to get people off around the world and not be in the same room with them sends a rush through me.
What was growing up like for you?
Growing up was a struggle but like everyone else I have I a story. My parents weren't around and bouncing around is something i have gotten immune too. But, I have had my battles, but I'm a true believer that God won't put too much on you that you can't handle...With that being said, I can say that i am blessed today!
What was your families reaction to you being gay?
It wasn't a good one.I was always have been comfortable with myself, and my Grandparents ( who raised me) were very old school weren't to fond of it... My Father and i had a physical altercation, but through out it all we are closer then ever today. My coming out was major start of a new beginning and had to learn my own way from there... I was 16 when i started my life on my own. A lot of the things have been through somewhat created Carlito. The good part is the hard part is over.
Do you think your family and friends looked at you different when you started doing porn?
Honestly it;s been 5 years, and my family is still unaware of the videos... but even if they were to find out, then it is what it is, As far as close ones around I have always had there support in anything I decide to do and that's only a few .Everyone else to me are people I associate with. I have always been a hard headed person and carried the type of attitude that could care less what the next may have to say.
Being that bareback porn is becoming very popular what are your views on it?
Most of my films are safe sex films, i will say that i have done a few bareback one as well. My thing is this, everyone ha a mind and make their own decision. And of course in the gay community the kids be going ham! Lol but seriously, I'm not going to front and like and act like i never done it,i mean there's nothing like it, but I do feel its a time a special someone that it should be done with, and not just anybody you meet on BGC and A4A. myself on the other hand when it comes to film I'm getting my coin and is something I chose to do and knew the person I have done it with.
Do you personally think people look at you differently now since you've done porn and do you feel that it is hard to make real friends?
In a way Yes, and in a way no. The reasons i say yes is because the Industry did put a label over my head and not everybody agree with that type of lifestyle. I say no because I'm no a big headed person. i don't go around thinking I'm the shit because of what i do... Like some do. Those who do meet me do see another side of me and i let the make there judgement then.I don't consider myself better than anyone else. I do what I do cause I enjoy it, and I really feel people that do know me can see that.
Who are your top 3 favorite people to work with and why?
Would have to say shorty J, because he is so cool and a true performer. The next I would probably say is Venom, i mean for me that speaks for itself, also we have a special friendship as well. and the final Person i would have to say is a new up and coming model by the name of "Pantha" with Black Rayne Productions. the vibe was amazing and he was very easy to work with.
Since you are versatile what do you enjoy more being a top or bottom and why?
I enjoy to bottom more because that's how I started out.. I am fully versatile today but that didn't happen until i started doing movies. But i enjoy both
What is a saying or phrase you live by?
A quote from Mya Angelou, "When a person shows you who they are, believe them." So true!
What is a talent that you have that many people don't know about you?.
I Really enjoy to write ... I write a lot of poetry and unspoken word. Most of my writing is based off my life
How many movies have you been in?
Honestly don't know but i would say about 21 at the most.including Internet porn I wouldn't know what to tell you.
What can we look forward to from Carlito in the near and distant future?
I just shot with Black Rayne productions and Chocolate Cream. but that's it as of now i do plan on stopping eventually.. i start school soon and i think i have had my fun... i have made my name.
Any last words for your fans and my viewers?
Live life to the fullest, and Life is what you make it! Just want to state that porn for me was an enjoyment, not a career choice and try to to wrap it up, life is precious and shouldn't be taken for granted and thanks for all the love and support!
