Meet Jonathan, a published writer of an experimental cookbook. Living in Switzerland, he talks of his video work being shown in global film festivals, his muscular calves and his first time as a bottom.
Tell us about yourself, what do you do for a living?
I am a Canadian multidisciplinary artist currently living and studying in Switzerland. I am doing a Masters degree in Cinema History and Esthetics, but I am also creating art on the side, mostly videos. My videos are distributed by Videographe (Montreal) and Vtape (Toronto), and have been screened around the world in high-profile festivals. I’m also a published writer; Survivre avec une poignée de change, my experimental cookbook, got an amazing media coverage around Canada but I am also the author of numerous erotic gay short stories.
You live in Lausanne, what is the gay scene like there?
I honestly have no idea. There used to be a gay street, but now it only has a bathhouse and a sex club, I think.
What is something you like about your body?
That’s a though question. I guess my calves. Weird answer, I know. But I have naturally muscular calves and it pisses off some cyclists friends that want bigger calves. I find that very funny.
What body parts do you find the sexiest?
I love plump lips, bubble butts and large crotches.
An age old question, boxers or briefs?
I wear both. It’ll depend on my mood. But with jeans, I love boxers because I have very sensitive inner thigh skin and sometimes the fabric of my pants hurt a bit. And so boxer help protect my skin.
What are you wearing right now?
I am wearing a pair of grey and blue Diesel briefs. You can see it on my tumblr: morningfacechestundies.tumblr.com
Are you comfortable with individuals seeing you nude in non-sexual contexts?
For art, yes. But it’ll depend on who’s the artist and how much I trust him/her/them.
What is your most embarrassing sexual experience?
Tough question. I guess it’s the first time I tried to bottom. I had just came out, and I had no idea how things really worked. And I didn’t know I had to douche before. I’ll just leave it at that.
