Q. This is really a dream come true for me. I can't believe that I am actually
asking questions of one of my all time KB models! I believe that I won most
all the videos you have appeared in since you debuted in MONTREAL MEN, which
by the way is a classic. The scene you are in with the unsuspecting guy
loosing his keys actually happened to me. Not quite like Kristen filmed it,
but similar. Your three-way was awesome and it looked like you were having a
very hot time! I also have quite a few of the Falcon and Catalina tapes that
you did. They were great too, but it's MONTREAL MEN that knocked my socks off.
When the model is eating your hot ass out and the other is going down on your
legendary cock at the same time, nothing could have been hotter. You have
always been a very hot model. Thanks for letting Kristen introduce you to a
very grateful audience. What was it like to do a KB video?
A. Doing a KB video was extremely demanding physically. I don't think most
people realize how much time KB puts into his videos. One scene took 3 days
to shoot and these were FULL days from sun up to sundown. It was a great
experience and quite a memorable one.
Q. How do you summarize you experience working with Kristen Vs working w/
other directors (Falcon for example)?
A. Working with KB was much more personal. I helped KB find some of the
locations as well as a lot of the models. I helped with the equipment and I
was often around on scenes in which I didn't participate. On the social side,
the KB experience was much more satisfying if not trying.
Like I mentioned above, working with KB was also really intense. He expects
much more from his models and it consequently made working for people like
Falcon and Catalina a piece of cake.
Q. Now, after (according to Kristen) you've retired, do you feel you were too
overexposed by appearing in non-Kristen Bjorn videos?
A. Oh no! I could have done more videos and I have been offered them since.
Over exposure happens but a lot of places will hire you. I believe I did some
12 videos, but its not uncommon for guys to do way over 50. Curiously I am
mostly recognized for the videos I did with KB and not really for the stuff I
Q. I do fantasize seeing you participate on a large all-hung-uncut-male-group
sex scene (as 'versatile'), OR participate in a 'standard' (!?) or 'bi'
gangbang (= one girl w/ many hung men) scene (as 'top' - of course). In your
time after Kristen, did you ever appear on a 'bi' video? What is your opinion
of 'bi' and 'standard gangbang' videos?
A. That's an interesting question. I recently saw a straight video and I was
turned on by the action. I remember when I was in high school a friends older
brother rented some porn films. I snuck in a bi one to every one's dismay but
we all watched it. I thought it was extremely hot at the time and I think
there is a totally different dynamic with bi videos that you can't get in gay
videos. I have personally never appeared in a bi-video.
Q. Do you consider the fact you're uncut an asset when you were into porn
A. Since I am uncircumcised, uncut is normal for me. I do think others
considered it an asset and I have heard that comment a lot.
Q. Just wondering how you found working with other actors who were more 'into
the scene,' unlike most of Kristen's actors who were not previously known.
Also I've heard that most mainstream porno directors try to hide a man's
foreskin. Did you find this to be the case? Did your costars act differently
working with an intact (uncut) guy?
A. LA is truly different. Being in a video there is much more "normal" than
it is in Montreal. I found the other models to be interesting and really well
adjusted. Most uncut directors try to HIDE the foreskin? NO, that doesn't
sound right at all. In fact, the opposite is true. They want you to tug on
it and show it. It's kind of hard to hide, especially if you're the top. No
other actor really mentioned the fact that I was uncut, so I couldn't tell you
what they were thinking much less feeling.
Q. You've got the sexiest lips in the biz! What are you up to these days? Any
chance you could be coaxed out of retirement by a studio?
A. LOL, thanks for the comments on my lips. When I was younger my lips were
close to the same size but my face was smaller. I hated them back then. I am
so glad the rest of my features have grown into proportion. I live in New York
City. I am working on a project in publishing. I wrote an article for a
magazine called GYM it should still be out on the stands.
Q. First, you have always been one of my favorites. You are a very attractive
man. In the spirit of this board, I would like to ask several questions: Which
of your costars have been your favorites and why?
A. That's an interesting question. Alex Powers was really nice and it turns
out he was born in Poland and grew up in France. I liked him a lot.
Q. Which of your non-KB videos is your favorite?
A. Idol Country, with Jawbreaker as a close second.
Q. Is there a porn star with whom you have never worked with whom you would
have liked to costar in a video?
A. Hal Rockland is really attractive.
Q. What were the differences that you experienced working for different video
A. It runs the gamut. I thought the guys at Catalina were some of the neatest
people I had ever met. They were all doing different things and they were a
great group to work with. Falcon was a bit more formal but it went well as
Q. How often has being recognized from your videos affected your life?
A. That's an excellent question and I think a lot of people wonder about
being recognized. It really hasn't affected my life at all. In fact, most of
the world (which we shouldn't forget is composed of straight people) has no
idea about videos much less gay videos. I could tell you a little story when
it has been positive; I got last-minute tickets to go see Barbra Streisand
here in New York City. I was very excited and the curtain was going up in a
couple of minutes so I ran to my seat. When I approached the usher he said I
would have to stand for the first act because Ms. Streisand didn't approve of
people walking around when she performed. I was distraught, I had just paid
$350 for the ticket! Suddenly behind me appeared a famous magician and a
renowned German covergirl. The same formerly reluctant usher immediately
offered to escort these two celebrities to their seats, which were in fact not
far from my own! I was annoyed and I was about to protest when another usher
intervened and said "One moment Mr. Majors, I'll take you to your seat."
Gay men can be both catty when they have recognized me as well as distant.
Which has made me a bit reticent about talking to people. If you do see me
somewhere discreetly say "hi." Most people call me Mateo, by the way.
Q. Would you consider doing another video for Kristen if he asked you?
A. Laugh! I don't know if he would, but no, frankly I think my video days
Q. Being in the porn business which means having multiple partners. How did /
do you deal with the risk of HIV infection? You are the best!
A. Well, condoms are mandatory. Sex on camera is pretty tame for the
Q. In your model profile, Kristen says that you are very intelligent and you
speak other languages. What are those languages, and how did you learn them?
A. I speak Spanish, German, French and English. English is my mother tongue. I
was exposed to Spanish as a kid (most Californians are) but I really began to
stud Spanish when I was 16 and consequently lived in Madrid, Spain where I
really learned a lot more Spanish. I went to Montreal, Canada with the intent
of learning French. I spent a little bit over 2 years there and I learned an
enormous amount of French, not to mention that I read a lot of great books in
I lived in Berlin, Germany for a year and I learned a lot of German. I talk
to friends in German all the time. I had a German trainer and I still read in
German daily as I do with all the other languages I have learned. The great
thing about learning other languages is that you meet different peoples and in
turn hear different points of views. This in turn is great for "defining"
Q. There has been a lot of confusion regarding your own ethnic background.
Would you mind letting your adoring fans know a little more about your
A. I am afraid that I am not as exotic as some would like me to be. Both my
parents are from Puerto Rico, which is a little island in the Caribbean that
happens to be an American commonwealth. I was born and raised in San Jose
California which is in the heart of the Silicon Valley. When I came back to
California from Montreal, the people at Catalina were worried that I only
spoke French! They were surprised to learn that I was more valley than they
Q. Aside from making porno movies, what are you other major interests and
goals in life? Where would you like to see yourself in 10 years from now?
A. Wow, those are big questions if not intimidating. I have a lot of major
interests and I am working on a pretty big project that shows a lot of
promise. In the end, I would like to continue to set goals and work towards
them. That has always been my direction ever since I was a kid. 10 years
from now? I see myself with a base in New York with business opportunities
that allow me to travel and enjoy life. I don't think I ever would have
classified porno movies as a "major interest" It was something that was
accessible to me and allowed me to do other things.
I tend to be a loner. I love to travel. I intend to go to Israel and South
Africa this year. I have a passion for books particularly reference books.
This is kind of different but these are the only books that I really will buy.
I'll go up to Montreal and stock up on French reference books. When a friend
comes in from Germany, I usually have a whole list of books that I want him to
get. I love history and I have gone through different eras that interest me.
I like to challenge myself physically. I used to wrestle when I was in Junior
High and High school. Weightlifting is one of the ways I can compete against
myself. I recently took a hip hop class and I enjoy that on a weekly basis. I
took a voice class that was a real blast. Imagine getting up in front of a
group of strangers and singing a song. It was nerve-racking but I did it for
the third time last month and I will probably take some more lessons. Its a
real challenge and its the discipline factor that interests me. I have this
collection of films in French and German and I would like to have them in
Spanish as well.
Q. What kind of man are you most attracted to? Are you involved in a
relationship at the present? If not, would you like to be?
A. I think I like men, and people in general, who are modest and have a sense
of humility. The physical has become less and less important. I also tend to
like people who have a lot of life experience. I am not in a relationship and
I really don't know why. Although I have to admit that I rarely feel lonely.
Maybe a bit bored, but not really lonely.
Q. It has been 8 years since you made your first porno movie. How do you feel
about the subject of aging? It's not that you're getting old, but what are
your feelings about it?
A. I am getting old! I am 28 years old and my next birthday is on Dec. 1st.
Aging is interesting because suddenly I am noticing the passage of time a lot
more. I really don't want to see age as an enemy, I like being my age frankly
and with a little work that attitude should carry through in the years to
Q. Hello Rod: I am thrilled to ask you a question because you are one of my
favorite porn stars and I think you are so hot. You are my ultimate fantasy
man; hot, dark, exotic, Latino looking, with a great body, and a huge uncut
cock! I wish you were still making videos! But since you're not, can you
tell us: What scene was your most memorable and got you the most turned on,
A. I am Latino so its kind of normal that I look the way I do. A hot scene
would be the one with Chip Daniels or the scene in Idol Country.
Q. What was the hottest sexual experience you look back on with a smile on
your face and a twitch in your cock?
A. The hottest sexual experience have been the most intimate. They would
lose some heat if I uncovered them for all to hear.
Q. Do you prefer sex with uncut or cut men?
A. Laugh. This isn't really decisive factor. American men tend to have this
cut/uncut karma going on. Since, I have lived out of the country so many
times and since the overwhelming majority of the world is uncircumcised it
just doesn't phase me one way or the other.
Q. Is there a sexual fantasy you have that you still want to fulfill and
could share with us?
A. Hmmm. That's a good question. I have to admit I have pretty much done it
all sexually and I feel sexually mature. That doesn't mean I am blase it just
means that I want to improve on what I already have.
