Jayden Marcos, 24, is not just a pretty face. Marcos, who appeared in an episode of HBO’s Euphoria last year, is a model, creator, and adult film star. Represented by Hussie Models, he is one of the agency’s most in-demand male talents. He is currently contracted with Next Door Studios for gay roles.
Marcos can be seen in nine jaw-dropping new films that were just released in July of this year. Next Door Taboo Update — Picture Perfect, Service Station: Blinker Fluid and Fit It In are just a few titles that he has worked on for Next Door Studios. He is also a scene-stealer in dramatic roles where he debuted in two gripping movies on behalf of award-winning studio Disruptive Films/Taboo Men, Toxic Influencer and Organ Donor: Envious Heart. Adult Time subscribers can find the charismatic young performer in his Mommy’s Boy debut, A Poke Behind the Curtain, Transfixed/Devil’s Tgirls title Ménage a Trans 8, Adult Time Pilots’ Cosmopolitans — Coffee & T and Pure Taboo film More Than She Bargained For.
The boyish, ultra-fit California native launched his industry career in 2019, and in 2022 broke through as an award nominee for AVN (Best Trans Group Sex Scene), GayVN (Best Duo Sex Scene), Transgender Erotica Awards (Best Boy/Girl Scene) and Str8UpGayPorn Awards.
Marcos states, “I never once thought coming into this industry that I would receive the love and support I have from everyone. It’s been so surreal!” He added, “Thank you to the people and companies who decided to take a chance on me; I hope to keep on making art with wonderful people for wonderful people extensively.”
I had the fortune of catching up with Marcos amidst his busy schedule to talk about his career, his hobbies, his relationships, and his future.
How did you come to the decision to pursue a career in the adult film industry?
Jayden Marcos: At first, when I was presented the opportunity, I took the chance just to be able to say I’d done it. About a year later, I found out I was making just as much doing it as I was working a job 12 hours a day, six days a week, but enjoyed it so much more. That’s when I decided to pursue it full time.
How long have you been doing films?
JM: I’ve been making films for about three and a half years now.
How does it affect your romantic relationships?
JM: Relationships are much harder to get involved in and to want to get involved in. It boils down to whether they’re okay with what I do for a living and if they’re someone I can truly connect with, which are both very important to me.
Do you have to do things that you don’t want to do when shooting a scene?
JM: Before shooting, boundaries are set in place. They make sure that no lines are crossed during filming, and no one must feel pressured to do anything they aren’t comfortable with.
Can you pick and choose what you do in scenes?
JM: Technically, yes. However, there are typically guidelines used as a basis and a certain type of sex or sexual acts required for certain sites. You can’t very well go film for a company that specializes in ass eating and say that ass eating isn’t something you’re comfortable with.
What do you have to go through if you want to cross over to Hollywood from adult films? Do you want to become an actor that isn’t doing adult films?
JM: There is still a very large stigma behind sex workers, so crossing over into Hollywood films is not necessarily an easy task. I was lucky to receive the opportunities I did, and I don’t take them lightly. I’d say it’s going to be a long process of gradually landing very small roles for anyone interested until someone sees your dedication and commitment enough to take a chance on you. It’s already a hard career path, and even though they’re in the same realm, porn and Hollywood acting are vastly different from one another.
What other creative passions do you have?
JM: I love working on/modifying Japanese cars, playing video games, and finding new limits at the gym.
How do you prepare for scenes?
JM: Preparation varies based on the type of scene, but I always like to prepare myself for anything. I make a habit of not touching myself for at least two days prior to a scene to make sure I’m extra horny with a guaranteed grand finish.
How do you identify in real life? Gay, bi, etc.?
JM: Simply I’m poly. However, in a more intricate description, I fall somewhere in a cross between demi and sapiosexual.
How has being in the adult film industry changed you?
JM: Being in the industry, I’ve noticed my confidence has gone up tremendously. Also, sex isn’t as desirable with someone who just happens to be a pretty face. It’s allowed me to change in a way that lets me think more with my big head and care about whether someone is a good person or not. You can be a 10, but if you’re cocky, rude, etc., I’m able to walk away carefree whereas before, I’d put up with maltreatment.
Is this your full-time gig or do you have another job aside from this?
JM: Porn is my full-time gig. I do like to hop on Twitch now and then to interact with fans and fellow gamers and just share in the love of gaming.
How have family and friends reacted to you doing porn?
JM: Not everyone was supportive of me entering the industry, but I didn’t expect anything different. It was what I wanted to do with my life and still do. Those who support me and still care about me are the ones I consider true friends and family.
Describe your ideal first date.
JM: I’m pretty old school when it comes to dates, so my ideal first date simply is dinner and a movie.
Can you tell me five turn-ons and five turn-offs that you find in people? They don’t have to be sexual.
JM: Turn-ons would be confidence, non-sexual intimacy, tattoos and piercings, dark humor, and existential thought process. Turn-offs would be cockiness, flamboyance, inferiority/superiority complex, being called daddy, and dishonesty.
Have you won any adult film awards and if so, how did you feel winning the award?
JM: I won the Str8UpGayPorn Award for Favorite Cock and I couldn’t believe it, honestly. It felt surreal to be loved enough to even be nominated. So, winning, I can’t even describe my feelings.
What is your diet and workout routine?
JM: I don’t have a real diet. As far as a workout routine, I try to go four to six times a week doing full body workouts moving as fast as I can with minimal breaks for at least an hour.
What is your favorite cuisine?
JM: My favorite cuisine is a tie between pizza and Mexican food.
What do you do in your down time?
JM: In my down time I’ll go for long walks with my dog or binge watch anime.
Who do you look up to? Any heroes?
JM: I don’t have any heroes currently. The only person I’m trying to be like is the best version of myself.
If you could talk to your 15-year-old self, what would you tell him, knowing what you know now?
JM: I’d say don’t worry about all the crappy things you think are important right now. You’re literally going to have one of the most badass jobs around and you’re going to meet some great people that change you for the better. It’s rough now but things get better. Much better.
Where would you like to see yourself in five to ten years?
JM: I’d like to see myself in real estate, renting out property to sex workers and companies while also still working in the industry myself.
It was a pleasure speaking with Jayden Marcos. He was very real and down-to-earth. His thoughts show us that there is more to him than what you see in his body of work. Be sure to check out his new titles. In this candid one-on-one with me, he showed that he is human just like the rest of us.
