Tyler Nixon is not the typical porn stud. He’s a sweet, unassuming guy who likes to downplay his success with the ladies as much as his prowess between the sheets. And it’s this lack of ego that makes him the perfect leading man for SexArt; he keeps the focus firmly on his beautiful female co-stars, although it’s fair to say there are plenty of us ogling his hot body as well as taking notes on his technique!
The American surfer dude has graced a handful of excellent SexArt productions, including season two of Alis Locanta’s groundbreaking series “Love For Sale,” and Andrej Lupin’s recent engrossing series “Bittersweet Tale.” Other notable roles include a playful turn in “Prank,” and some super-smooth seduction in “Unknown Feeling.” Tyler is evidently a favorite with crew and performers alike, excelling at playing the nice guy with a passionate edge and giving a thoroughly convincing and heartfelt performance. He makes you feel that you’re watching genuine lovemaking, with all the passion and chemistry that implies.
SexArt members (both male and female) have been singing Tyler’s praises and wanting to know more about him, so lucky me, I got to ask him all my naughty questions… have I ever mentioned how much I love my job?
Tyler, how do you keep in such good shape?
TN: I actually think I am out of shape right now. I grew up surfing and skateboarding, and although I don’t do it for the workout, it is great exercise. Once summer rolls around just maybe you’ll see a difference in my body.
What is your favorite thing about your appearance?
TN: I would have to say my hair at this point. I used to have long hair as a kid and was forced to cut it for work before getting into the industry. So when I got the chance to go crazy with the hair I took the opportunity.
What inspired you to get into making adult movies? And when did you realize you had the right tool for the job?!
TN: I actually have no idea how I’m still relevant. I never pursued the industry in the beginning just because I never considered myself great at having sex. I really enjoy having sex, especially with the right girl – great chemistry – but I think it’s a bit arrogant to think you have an edge over anyone else when everyone is completely different in what they like in bed. It’s all about the chemistry you have with a partner that makes great sex in private, but in porn it’s about accommodation. So if I had to name a tool it would be that in every scene I try to be considerate to my partner and ask what she may enjoy most throughout our scene to make her most comfortable. And don’t think I’m perfect, like anyone I’ve had my good days where the scene was great and I’ve had days where I struggled through the scene, it’s normal.
What advice would you give to guys who think it might be the career for them?
TN: If you are getting into the industry to have sex or “bang chicks” it will most likely be a short experience.
Do your friends ever ask you for sex advice?
TN: Haha! No, my friends do not ask me for advice about sex. I’m a pretty reserved guy, I think they know that I’m inundated with sex talk from work, Instagram and twitter so we tend to talk about other things like our hobbies.
How long have you been making films?
TN: I have been in the industry for about five years. The thing I like most about the job is that I'm my own boss. I’ve worked in pretty much every service industry where I had little flexibility in my schedule, so to break from that to reinvent myself was liberating. I never have to suppress myself, I can fully exploit my true self, who is a total recluse, but still, I can be the full version of me.
Do you have any acting training? You seemed to get really immersed in the role in “Bittersweet Tale.”
TN: I do not have any formal acting skills. I have high social anxiety so when I’m around people I sometimes feel like I’m trying to act like a normal person, so maybe that’s a form of acting training, I don’t know? I also enjoy imitations, I’m a big fan of stand up and skit comedy so I try to pull little things from my favorites and add them into whatever role I’m in. Working with Andre Lupin and his team was amazing! Just our location alone was so incredible that it was impossible not to have a good time, and then the crew was just full of wonderfully fun people. I had a great time working with such a fun group that is so dedicated to making great movies!
Please tell us about your experiences shooting for SexArt.
TN: I have a bit of history with SexArt and they have been wonderful all these years. I started working for them when I first got into the industry, when they were based out of Los Angeles and from the beginning the owners, who are tremendous people, were always striving to form the best crew. In the past five years I have worked with many SexArt crews around the world and I must say they do a great job finding the nicest, most dedicated people. I know it’s going to be a fun trip when SexArt calls, so I am appreciative!
Do you like to watch your own movies?
TN: I do not watch my own movies. I feel like I would critique myself too much, let’s let others do that for me.
How would you describe your personality?
TN: I’m a total recluse. Very reserved. Probably not the best for promotional reasons, but yeah, that’s me.
Are you a romantic person?
TN: I would consider myself a romantic. Although I’m in this industry I am very traditional in my private life. I’m monogamous, it sounds like an oxymoron given what I do, but I consider my work as performance art rather than enjoying sex.
Do you have a high sex drive? Do you still jerk off even when you’re filming a lot?
TN: Oh man… So mostly my personal sex life is non-existent, but when I’m with a girlfriend yes, I love sex. Sex with the right person is the best, right? And yes, I still jerk off. I think everyone should masturbate; in case you don’t know, it feels really really good!
What kind of girls do you like?
TN: I like the nice ones! I tend to like the girls who enjoy hanging out in the park or on the beach, drinking a beer, smoking and watching people do whatever it is they do. If she’s cute, even better!
What is your favorite position?
TN: Missionary, for sure!
What turns you on?
TN: Kissing turns me on. The more foreplay and anticipation, the hotter for me!
Dominant or submissive?
TN: Neither. I just enjoy passionate sex.
Where is the most unusual place you’ve ever had sex?
TN: The most unusual place I have had sex was in an airplane for a video that we shot in Austria, it was amazing. In my private life it has been mellow. I think the craziest thing I have done outside the industry was a blowjob in a gondola at a ski resort… I wasn’t giving the blowjob!
What is your favorite sexual fantasy?
TN: No sexual fantasies. I’m pretty boring with that. Again, just passionate sex with someone I like is the best for me – I know, sounds crazy right?
Where do you like to meet girls?
TN: I hardly meet anyone. Like I said I’m a bit of a recluse, so I just work and hang out with friends. I know it’s probably not the healthiest thing, but I’m around so much sex that I’m not into meeting girls for a temporary relationship.
Do you remember your first kiss?
TN: I do remember my first kiss… I was so young, I can’t remember the age, but I was young enough to be playing in a sandbox. This girl, also my age, came up to me and asked if I knew what a French kiss was, my response was no, and at that moment she demonstrated on me. I was so frozen I had no idea what to do. I didn’t kiss another girl for years after that. What a mind fuck!
Had you ever had a threesome in your personal life before you did it in a movie?
TN: Nope. I’m not a threesome kind of guy. I don’t like to share!
What are your ambitions?
TN: My ambitions are just to enjoy life right now. Enjoy traveling and doing the things I like to do, like surfing and skating, while I still can. In the near future I want to really commit myself to photography in the industry, maybe producing my own content or possibly working for a company like SexArt as a photographer or producer. Let’s see!
Is there anything else you would like to tell your fans?
TN: I would just like to thank all my fans that follow and support me. I know I can be a bit distant in my replies to people but I want everyone to know that I do appreciate all the support I receive. Cheers! And I want to thank SexArt! You guys are always amazing and I can’t wait to work for the crew again!
