Shell’s Interview Questions for Swiney
Today we caught up with the legendadry POV King and award winning director TVonSwine! AKA Swiney!!
Check out his interview and follow him for some incites into the biz from a pro!
Are you in a committed relationship? Is he/she in the biz?
Currently no,..but I did date Kelly Shibari for 3 1/2 years, but that ended this past november (2013). Not sure why we’re not on speaking terms anymore but, that’s ‘showbiz’.
Do you have an open relationship when it comes to your personal life?
Early in my career(03-08), I dated a gal who wasn’t in the industry, and my performing on camera wasn’t something she handled too well, and ultimately drove us apart.
How did you pick your stage name?
My stage name originated from a t-shirt I picked up at one of the early LA Erotica conventions w/Mike John (like 99′-00′?) and it had a big boar on the front w/the words ‘Male Chauvinist’ across the body. The name came together soon thereafter, kind of for laughs since I didn’t think I was bound for the XXX ranks in a legitimate way. But, I was, and have been ever since. Also, I knew having a name that was a bit unique & a bit comical would only help w/whatever alter-ego or character I was to become as my tenure in XXX moved forward.
How old were you when you started in the adult entertainment business? And how did you get started?
I started doing p.a. and non-sex work in spring 01′. It was in Fall 02′ I started shooting scenes, and then I started performing in late summer of 04′.
How long do you plan on staying in the biz?
I’ll stay in as long as XXX will have me…
Do you have a backup plan in the event that the biz doesn’t work the way you’d like?
After doing/working in XXX for over 10+ years and making very little money compared to virtually ALL of my contemporaries, there was no time to drum up a backup plan amidst the scraping by I’ve been doing,..lol. So, no I do not have one..
Do you have any other hidden talents? What are they?
Whatever hidden talents I once had have all been pushed completely aside for the obvious talents I now possess in the masturbatory and beer guzzling arenas.
Are you a sports fan? What are your favorite teams?
Hockey is something I still love, but I’m not fanatical about it.
If you could be any superhero, which one would you be and why?
Well, in some ways, T.von Swine IS a super-hero as he goes against ALL pre-determined stereotypes of a male performer; older, overweight, NOT particularly handsome,.. yet, Swiney IS in the arena banging all the top stars that the A-list dudes bang so that speaks for itself in a way. Although I have no plans of donning a cape anytime soon.
Would you ever fuck or make out with a fan?
Nope, never got to bang a ‘fan’…not too many female fans lining up for what I got..
Where are you originally from?
From Venice, Ca. Always been a product of Southern California.
Do you live in LA or do you reside elsewhere?
Currently live in the north part of the LA/San fernando Valley.
With Aiden Starr
If you could have any career outside of the industry what would it be?
Well, not to be fatalistic, but that’s not something I ever think about since I’m here on this path and that’s it. My life kinda started off backwards (w/how people died early, etc.) so I dont allow myself to spend time taking my mind/thoughts there.
What’s your favorite genre to perform in? Feature, gonzo, parody, BDSM or Public Disgrace?
Am pretty much a POV performer although I do shoot my Pro-Am stuff which is a blend of pov and tri-pod footage. Both are great since I get to fuck/romp around with the gals on my/our terms, and not someone elses. That goes a long way to keep the vibe real easy and accesible for me and the fans. Non-performing I’m a gonzo guy al the way.
What’s your favorite food and drink of choice?
Beer/lager of course
What’s your favorite color?
What is your favorite part of a woman’s body?
Well, tough one but I suppose the ass usually breaks me down more often than the tits or legs do,.. A gal w/a pretty face and a big ass will flat out OWN me,..lol
Favorite television show?
GOT is great, Walking Dead. That’s about it for tv..
K Rose …. ’09
Repo Man, The Warriors..older cheesy/schlock stuff.
Favorite book and what are you reading now?
Dont read anymore…makes me realise how NOT smart I am,..or am not..whichever is the proper way to answer that.
Favorite band or music?
Am still a slave to the guitar and rock n’ roll…too many bands to list tho.
Do you sing in the shower and if you do what is it that you sing?
Shower no,..all over the house yes, even tho it doesn’t pass/qualify as singing unless you enjoy songs being destroyed in a tone-deaf fashion..
When doing a scene is there a trick you do to keep yourself from cumming too soon?
Cumming early is rarely a problem since the importance of the cumshot is SO prevalent in my mind that I dont allow myself to ‘cheeseball’. Now, I DO want to cum early, and prolly should more often, but there’s so much $$$ and pressure to crank out a solid scene that you can’t just enjoy the bangout for yourself. ALL scenes are for the fans/paying customers, and non-paying customers too, lol. Because they sure like to chime in, even if they didn’t pay to watch it.
When is your birthday?
My b-day is 1/20/70…I’m on the cusp of some totally pointless horrorscope thing…and no, I’m not aging as well as I’d like..lol.
Do you have a wishlist?
With AJ Applegate
Guys who have wishlists should carry a fucking purse…what MAN asks for gifts? Fuck off if you’re a male performer looking for handouts from male or female fans. Puke.
Do you have merchandise (DVDs-Photos) for sale for fans or is there a way to get a photo or something autographed for your fans for those who cannot make the cons?
Merch: sort of,.. I do make custom Pro-Am dvd’s of my clips at chubold.com, so if anyones interested in seeing me and (sometimes) another fatguy bang hot XXX starlets, then just go to that site and search ‘Pigpen’, or ‘Swiney’ and you’ll see my clips. Or, you can just buy them there as those purchases totally help my fatguy/hot chick crusade! Email me at pigpendvd@yahoo for the scenes you want compiled if you’d rather have a dvd and we’ll work out a fee/price…
What appearances are you scheduled to appear at in the near future?
No appearances for Swiney…I dont have a PR monkey telling the world how AMAZING I am for a monthly fee so that people can (not) line up at a lame bar in Hollywood to be underwhelmed at my overall appearance & stature… Was that snarky? Nobody cares,..lol.
Do you have a contact address for fans to send you presents and letters of appreciation?
Find Swiney on twitter at 2 places: @Tvonswine or @Swineyspigpen, or at the above ^ email addy.
AVN Red Carpet 2014
Is there anything else you want to let your fans know about what’s going on in your life right now?
Fans can rest assured that I HAVE been working full time in XXX since late 02′ even tho my name hasn’t graced the front of a boxcover in about 8 years..and due to ‘politics’ prolly never will again. But, I’m still having the time of my life whenever I get the camera in my hands and have a chance to make something for people all over the world to enjoy either in a horny or humorous way as all I strive to do is entertain with my scenes/movies. Thanx for the interview, am always glad to spend time w/anyone who cares to let me bend their ear via email, etc.. Cheers, -Swiney.
