Exclusive Interview With Gay Porn Redhead Steven Ponce
If you’ve only ever seen still photos of Steven Ponce, you might be surprised by his very sultry Puerto Rican accent. (The name’s kind of a tip-off, though: in British slang, ponce more or less means fag, but in Spanish it means prince; it’s also the name of one of the larger cities in Puerto Rico. The more you know!)
Of course, if you’re familiar with the work of Steven Ponce, you’re probably used to hearing him whimper and moan quite a bit. He’s a very passionate bottom in most of his scenes, and I’m still kind of hung up on his work in Titan‘s 2009 extravaganza Telescope.
That’s pretty much the perfect porn scene, by the way. Diesel Washington takes Ponce from behind, locking him in a full nelson and fucking him pretty relentlessly, while Ponce dangles in the air like a… dangling thing. I don’t even know what to compare it to. Steven makes all kinds of pained expressions, and they each cum twice. I’ve seen that scene a whole bunch of times and literally gave myself a semi just typing this paragraph.
Steven was nice enough to talk with me on the phone the other day. Click through to hear what he has rto say about the straight guy bait-and-switch, about being a red-haired Puerto Rican, and about what other things he wants to put in his butt.

Hey Steven! How’s it going? How’s Florida?
The weather is amazing right now. It’s eighty-five and windy. There’s no humidity right now. It’s great.
Tell us a little bit about you and where you’re coming from.
I’ve lived in Florida for nine years now. Before that, I was in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a really great place, too. The men are hot there, and it’s a great place to be if you’re a bottom. It was really fun.
You do seem to enjoy being a bottom.
I’m mostly versatile, actually!
You’re not very tall. Do people automatically assume that you’re a bottom because you’re short?
I’m 5’6″. Mostly everybody in porn is really, really short. That’s actually a good question, and I don’t know. Usually I expect taller guys to be tops, it’s true. But in real life, I like guys who are taller than me, and if they’re taller than me, then I like for them to be tops. If they have an amazing ass, though, then I’m going to go for it. Whoever it is.
So what’s going on with you? Have you got anything new coming out?
Right now, I’m working with companies in Florida. A lot of them are down here: Men Over 30, Bait Buddies, Circle Jerk Boys. I’m open for traveling, though. I’m really hairy right now. I’d love to shoot with Raging Stallion or Kink.com!
My last scene that came out was the car loan scene for Men Over 30. And I did a scene for Bait Buddies that should be out soon. It’s a bait and switch.
The bait and switch! I was just talking at dinner last night about straight guy porn.
Yeah, I did a lot of shoots for Bait Bus. They were really fun. I like playing along. I like every kind of fantasy. Everything that you can’t do in bed. I love to work with the straight guys, and I’ve never had a bad experience with them. And sometimes I can see it in their faces, this look like rrrrrrrr. [Ed. note: Steven Ponce’s way of purring sounds a lot like this song.] It’s really sexual for me.
So what haven’t you done on camera that you’d like to?
On camera? I’ve never been fisted. I would really love to do that. I’ve actually never had a whole hand completely up there. I’d like to try being a fisting top on film, too. That and sounding. That looks really hot.
Sounding! So you like your sex to be a little bit painful.
I like it painful but playful. It can be both.
Like that scene in Telescope…
That scene was really wild and fun. And long. Diesel is really fun to work with, and to this day, he’s one of my best buddies because of that scene.
And how long have you been doing porn? And how did that come about?
I always thought about doing it. When I was in Fort Lauderdale, I was working at an adult video store, and I met Michael Lucas. He asked me if I wanted to do porn, and I said sure. I started working out, and the next thing you knew, I had a contract. I had always thought about it, so why not? I started in 2006 or 2007? Oh my god, I don’t even remember. It goes by so fast. I enjoy it, though. Every single bit of it.
Are most people surprised that you’re Puerto Rican?
Oh, I get it all the time. They can not believe it until I open my mouth. It’s actually really fun. People speak Spanish in front of me all the time, and when I answer them back, they get really surprised.
Maybe this is an ignorant question. Are there many redheads in Puerto Rico?
I knew four when I was there. There are some, mostly in the mountains. I’ve traced my family back, and there’s one branch that goes back to the north of Spain. That’s as far north as it goes though. But I can drink like the Irish!
Would you ever want to work for a Latin porn site?
I’d love to! I’m not ashamed or anything, so of course I would! I love being Puerto Rican!
So, last question. As an expert on bottoming, what advice would you give someone who was afraid to take a dick in their butt?
Don’t be afraid. Just use lube. At the end, it will feel good. Lube and patience will take you anywhere.
