KW: How and when did you get into the adult movie industry?

BR: They found me on MySpace about 2 yrs ago.

KW: You’ve been selected “best newcomer” by both GVNN and the Grabbys, how does that feel?

BR: It’s such an honor, I never expected them at all!

KW: Was being a porn star always a passion for you?

BR: Not at all, but I'm enjoying the ride!

KW: What was the name of your first movie and the other actor?

BR: Knob Bobbin' and my scene partner was Patrick Fisher.

KW: What surprised you most about your first porn experience?

BR: The amount of people around!

KW: Who is your favorite co-star and why?

BR: Ya know I'm going to say Cameron Marshall, one of our other exclusives. It is going to be a hot scene, so definitely be on the lookout for it!

KW: What a tease!

So, who works harder in a movie? Top or Bottom?

BR: Just depends on the scene really but I'd say bottom.

KW: Have you ever experienced any performance issues?

BR: I'm 22 yrs old... I'm hard at the drop of a hat. (laughs)

KW: How do you stay in such great shape?

BR: Work out as much as I can!

KW: Describe your ideal mate and are you currently dating?

BR: Still trying to discover that and no I'm single.

KW: Has your career affected your relationships?

BR: Yes, it’s the hardest thing about it!

KW: Tell us... what is your “I’m turned on button"?

BR: I guess my ears.

KW: What is something in your home that would make a stranger think you were gay?

BR: My gay porn awards? (laughs) That or the movie “To Wong Foo”. (laughs, again)

KW: What is something that might make a stranger think you were straight?

BR: When they hear I have a fantasy to be with a girl... well until they hear the full details of my fantasy! (laughs)

KW: WOW! What’s the difference between Blake Riley in person and on screen?

BR: A lot alike actually. (laughs) I'm just more timid in person.

KW: When not traveling where do you call home?

BR: Los Angeles

KW: You’re returning to Chicago for an appearance at Hunters. Are there any favorite places or experiences in the Windy City?

BR: Winning the Grabby awards! It was such a great weekend!

KW: It’s Pride month... anything in particular that you are most proud of?

BR: Being alive with friends and family

KW: Finally, after porn what do you see in your future?
