The gay foot-fetish and male hosiery porn site Gentlemen’s Closet isn’t exactly new I wrote about it here a couple months ago shortly after porn star Trenton Ducati took it over. But Ducati is revamping and relaunching the site, and The Sword had some questions about how all this came about, and whether he’s really into feet, himself.
The Sword: How did you first discover Gentlemen’s Closet?
Trenton Ducati: I used to be a performer for the site, and then I started shooting for them two years ago.
So, are these fetishes pantyhose, foot play, socks and shoes things you’re also into?
I can honestly say that I like some more than others. I started licking feet in scenes I performed in a while back because I felt like it made the scenes more interesting and fun to watch. I always feel like if I’m bored as the performer, surely the viewer is too. So that’s why I always try different things. In the process of working on Gentlemen’s Closet I learned I have a foot fetish, and that’s how my personal fetish started. As a director I love filming different fetishes because the scenes to me are just fun to watch.What made you decide to buy the site? How many people are involved?
I think I was in the right place at the right time . I had recently started a production company called Ducatistudios, which I co own with longtime industry veteran Anthony Duran. We had been producing for multiple companies and had developed a good system. We also have Mocha, the veteran photographer, on board, so producing is second nature for our crew. So when the opportunity to buy Gentlemen’s Closet came up it made perfect sense. I had been friends with the previous owner, Fernando, for a couple of years and we got along really well. Fernando the previous owner had put a lot of effort into GC. He wanted to really provide a special place for fetish lovers. He started with specializing with sheer hose and feet and it has grown now to include a wide variety of fetishes.
Fernando knew that I would take care of the company so he felt comfortable selling it to me. He needed a break due to personal reasons and we were looking for a project. So that’s how it all happened.
Who’ll be creative-directing it now that he’s gone?
As far as the creative directing, we all pitch in with that. I still get advice from Fernando and I get outside opinions from friends like Michael Youens and Chi Chi. So it’s really a group effort.
Are you responsible for getting some more recognizable faces on the site?
Yes, we have been adding some familiar faces lately. Namely Adam Russo, Angelo Marconi, and Billy Santoro is very popular on the site. We try to keep a balance with new guys and familiar.
How has the response been so far?
The response has been great. I am so happy the members enjoy the site. I really try to listen to them. I go as far as emailing them directly and asking what they want to see. Sometimes we then make that exact scene they suggest. It’s very important to me that members enjoy themselves and feel like that have a special place to explore their sexual fantasies. Both Anthony and I are really thankful this opportunity came along.
And there’s a social network aspect too?
Yes. The unique thing about Gentlemen’s Closet is it’s a fetish social networking platform. We have over 6,000 members involved with the free social aspect where they can post pics and interact with like-minded people. So that separates our site from the rest a little. We have a real community of sorts.
Where do you see the site going in the future?
We are re-designing the look of the site to a more updated look currently. I am excited and really love this industry. We have all sorts of scenes coming out . Our latest series Kinky Hitchhiker is really doing well. We have more of those scenes coming out along with some traditional scenes. We have a sex scene coming out next week that might even win an award. It’s amazing.
We will be adding a Daddy section to the site soon. We already have the content just working on how it will work on site.
So, will that be daddies in pantyhose, or…?
No, the new Daddy area will be Anthony Duran’s old site Nasty Daddy re-launched. Just standard hot hairy daddies. We are pretty excited about it.
