Papi Chulo's BLOG proudly presents an exclusive interview series titled "In Bed with Papi Chulo." This series will feature the hottest stars in mainstream and adult media.
Shane Diesel has got to be one of the most popular porn stars of this decade ... He is well known for his massive thick dick ... his creamy cum loads ... his muscular physique ... and his classic scenes ...
Diesel entered the porn world after responding to an ad for BigCockSociety.com ... Once the industry learned of his mega-thick cock ... Diesel was whisked away to his first porn set shooting for Pink Visual's Gang Bang Squad ...
Shane Diesel was given his stage name because of his resemblance to mainstream actor Vin Diesel ... Shane is also known as Blackzilla ... Hush Hush Entertainment provided Shane with that moniker ... and that name made Shane a household name ...
Earlier this year ... Shane and his 7" thick dick left Hush Hush and moved on to New Sensations where he has an exclusive contract ... The prolific porn star has also moved behind the camera to direct ...
I sat down with Shane to talk about how he got into the adult industry ... his time at Hush Hush Entertainment ... his favorite co-stars ... the state of interracial porn ... his large gay fanbase ... and his new role as "director" ...
Shane Diesel: A total of six years this past April.
PC: How did you get into the adult industry?
SD: Initially I answered an ad for Lisa Sparxxx's website. She liked well hung Black guys. Lisa and hubby came over and we did a small internet scene. Now as far as my big break, I answered an ad in Hustler or Playboy for the Big Cock Society. They fly in guys that are winners for the month to do a photo shoot. It was a solo masturbation shoot.
Thirteen to fourteen years ago I did a solo Playgirl photo shoot when I was bodybuilding. I didn't do anything in the industry for 12 years. It was just a one time thing. I was 28-years-old and it was a completely nude shoot.
I met a guy named Sylvio who had done porn for a while. He recognized me and gave me a card. He introduced me to some people that do internet porn. He called and I auditioned for a scene and the camera guys and director were pleased. They said they could use me ... so that's how it officially started.
It was six years ago. I was working for the airport and took some pay cuts because of 9/11. I was stressing. This porn thing came up and I was like, "I could do it." And then it just snowballed. I developed an internet fanbase and it blew up. It was nonstop after that. This is the best hobby I've ever had. I was having sex with a shitload of girls before porn ... I might as well get paid for it.
SD: My first day on a porn set was for Pink Visual's Gang Bang Squad. It was very nerve wracking. I was very nervous. I didn't know any of the guys that well, except for Sylvio. It took a minute to adjust to it. So I wasn't 100% sure people liked my attitude and if my dick was big enough to do something in the business. But by my third or fourth shoot I caught my rhythm.
A lot of the time you follow orders and you stay open for more direction. But sometimes you are really fucking. You have to pay attention to the camera and give them the right shots.
PC: How did you come up with your porn name?
SD: When I did the shoot for Big Cock Society in Miami, the owner of the company asked me what kind of name I wanted. I wanted it to start with an "S" ... maybe Shawn (à la Sean Michaels). He said, "How about Shane?" I thought about it. I liked it, I don't know why. Maybe because of the old western movies. For the last name, he came up "Diesel." He was like, "You kinda look like Vin Diesel. Why not Shane Diesel?" I said, "That's excellent. Let's do that." So the name stuck. People loved it and it just flew.
SD: I've never truly measured it. I've had people on the set who tried to measure it. In my opinion, it's not a big thing to measure it. I would say 10 inches long when it's fully hard. As far as thickness ... between 7 - 8 inches. I'm just guessing ... it could be smaller.
PC: Do co-stars have a hard time taking all that dick in their pussy? In their ass?
SD: Pussy? Yes and no. When I go on set, I like to ask the girls if they are small down there, if they had kids and their age. If they are small down there, it will be a little tough. If she's had kids, it's kinda easy. Once a woman has had a child, they can take a big dick. A woman in her late 20s or a MILF in her 30s ... most time they can take it. I usually ask the girl if she has been in the business for a while, if she has participated in swinging and if she likes big dicks. I ask them those three questions and I can see if I can go there. Sometimes we warm up before the scene, and if they can do it then we go on to the scene from there. We will dress up and start the scene with the intro. If they can't do it ... she might be ripped from the scene before or we are not compatible because of my girth thickness or she's small down there ... it's not a big deal. Once she works with smaller guys, she can work her way up and we can shoot in 6 months. It's not a big deal. Sometimes people just can't do it ... it's not a match. We will get one out of five girls who can't do it.
As far as the ass? Most of them can't. Which is strange. The ones I do anal with request it. And the reason why is because they enjoy it ... the bigger the better. Some girls get stimulated more anally than vaginally. So they prefer anal. A lot of girls request anal (and not vaginal) and they do a phenomenal job. They are squirting in reverse cowgirl. There are not a whole lot, but the ones that can do it are fantastic. Out of twenty-five scenes, one girl will really request it.
PC: You recently left your contract at Hush Hush Entertainment ... How long were you with them?
SD: I was with Hush Hush for about two and a half years.
PC: Hush Hush's Blackzilla line really put your name on the map ... How did that title come about?
SD: That title came about by the owner of Hush Hush. I told him my concept and he loved it. I told him that I liked the title "My Daughter's Fucking a Nigga." I wanted it to be controversial. I've dated white girls. They have told me, "My dad doesn't like that I date Black guys. He uses the N-word." I remembered that. Young kids are using the word and I want to offend people to get the controversy out there. Paypal and CCBill didn't like the title. The banks didn't like it. So he was like, "Let's use Blackzilla." I think he heard it on Chappelle's Show.
PC: What is your take on the original title for that series "My Daughter's Fucking a Nigga" ... and the use of similar terminology in the titles of other interracial pornography ... and in porn scenes (i.e. SpringThomas.com)?
SD: I used to work with Spring a lot. That's the thing, I want to change. I knew her stuff before I started my stuff. I felt it would be better if the Black guy was saying it from the start. It wouldn't seem as "racial", because Blacks use it as slang and in a "cool way". The way companies use it is in a "racial" way. We have been called this word in the racist way ... why not have the Black guy in control of the word while he's screwing the white guy's daughter? Have him using the word in a way that it's turning her on and pissing off her father ... and the viewers who may have a racist mind would get turned on by it too. People know how i am ... my demeanor. I'm a plain guy, not thuggish. So when they see me saying it, it's more like I'm throwing that word out and playing with it.
SD: I love the one-on-ones with the girls that I request. Those are great. It's more intimate and I can do a hell of a scene. I don't have to work around other bodies. I enjoy threesomes with Boz. We have good chemistry. We are good friends. We like to have a good time with the girls. We love to please them and have fun with it. It's less work on each of us because we just take turns. We watch the girl get pounded, then take turns.
SD: Initially it was very challenging and a lot of fun. It was challenging because I had to have different faces. I have to make sure everybody is on their toes. There is the stills camera, production assistant, make up girl ... and I had to talk to everyone of them for a month until they got used to how I wanted things to go. I have so many different concepts new to porn and I wanted them to understand my ideas. We have to do storyboards for the internet. So I taught them how to do stills for the internet.
Then I got into "porn" mode, because I'm fucking the girl and I have to get into the sex scene. It was very challenging, but it's been good. So I have a lot of respect for Vince Vouyer and Peter North. They have been able to do P.O.V. and direct. But there's nothing like being in full control of your stuff.
PC: Do you find it difficult to direct a scene you are starring in?
SD: No. Midway by the third week I started to. But now it's so much easier because everyone is on the same page. We all put in input. It flows so much easier. The girls I am directing, I always get their input. It turns me on more to know her fantasy or what she really enjoys doing. So we will set it up and it will give us the best scene 'cause she's into it and enjoying it and I get into it 'cause I'm pleasing her. I try to get everyones input within my guidelines and to me that was the thing that holds back a lot of talent since the beginning. I wanted to unleash certain things, but there were too many guidelines. But, I guess everyone has their own vision of porn.
PC: Who have been some of your favorite co-stars in scenes ... Females and Males?
Boz without a doubt. He's the only one I work with. We pull a lot out of each other. It's like we are boys at home fuckin' the shit out of a freak. It's like we are not even on set.
PC: Do you get recognized by fans in the streets?
SD: Yes I do.
PC: Have you had any interesting encounters with fans?
SD: Yea, I've have a huge gay following which I love because they are the most loyal and appreciative. They have followed me since day one. Men approach me in grocery store or when I'm buying clothes and we will talk for 30-40 minutes. They will ask questions about the industry. They are the coolest. They appreciate what I do and get more into it. It's always a great conversation. My gay fans are the coolest. Straight or swingers or females are awesome too ... but I always get the impression they don't know how to view me compared to the gay fans. They are like, "Wow, he's cool. He's doing his thing." They don't judge you. The others can't put a finger on you yet.
I've had tons of offers from fans. But, I have to worry about lawsuits and rape. I keep everything professional. I get emails from swingers and female fans. They want to fly me out to Hawaii, Australia, Sweden or someplace within the states to hook up. The women are gorgeous and it would be a lot of fun, but I got into the business for business. I got plenty of pussy before porn. I want to keep it professional and keep making the money I'm making. I thank them for all, but I just keep it professional. Now if they want to do a shoot and they are fyne, I will definitely talk about flying her in, getting her tested and talk about doing a shoot with us.
SD: That's one of the reasons why I came out to Long Beach. I've worked out since I was 14. I did a contest when I turned 19 in Vegas. It was a lot of fun, training discipline and dieting. I loved it. I would come out to Long Beach and train in Venice Beach. I was like trying to be the next Arnold [Schwarzenegger]. I drove my car, brought 500 bucks and had 200 when I got to Cali. I got a job in the gym and started competing. I won several shows. I did nine or ten. I qualified for nationals, but I got burned out. There was too much steroid and politics. I didn't want to go much further. I love my health and body. I dropped out of it and continued to stay in shape and worked out. Training and eating is phenomenal. It's a lot harder to go on stage posing for people than doing porn. You are critiqued from head to toe. I did it about eight years competitively.
PC: Are you still very health conscious and into fitness?
SD: Totally. I cook a lot. I cook my own food. I'm at Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe's all the time. I'm extremely health conscious. I will be 45 in July. The older I get ... the more I want to see my next birthday as a milestone. I will spend three or four months trimming myself and I will see myself as looking better than the year before. I'm always training, eating good and hitting the gym hard. I'm taking myself to the next level.
PC: You shoot some of the thickest cum loads ... How do you achieve those big pop shots?
SD: The thick cum loads ... part of that has to do with the way I eat. My health. I eat really clean food. I like a lot of tuna, especially albacore tuna. I enjoy a lot of fresh salmon, which I cook myself. Also, chicken breast and home made soup. I make it once a week and it lasts me about three days (either chicken soup or turkey soup). I used to eat meat a lot, but the older I get ... the less I can digest it. When I can, I eat a thick rib eye steak. I always take a multivitamin and Vitamin E every morning. I drink a shit load of water and my cumload comes out real thick. Sometimes I got to push it out 'cause it doesn't even want to come out.
PC: Where is your preferred place to shoot your load?
Off-screen: In my personal life, it would have to be internal with someone I'm in love with ... a girlfriend not some stranger. It's so personal.
PC: How and when did you lose your virginity?
SD: It was when I was 18. I was still in high school. I've always dated older women. I started kinda late. My senior year, this one lady kept hitting on me and came over one day in my mother's car. We started talking and we pulled down our pants and went at it. I couldn't really fit inside her, so there wasn't any real penetration. Five minutes and it was done. I got a quick nut and there wasn't really any pleasure.
After that I started meeting women in their late-20s and 30s. They would take me out. They knew I had something pretty big and it went on from there. My first experience in the back of my mother's car wasn't that much fun. I like beds.
PC: What has been one of your hottest on the set sexual encounters?
SD: It was two girls ... sisters ... actual real sisters. Tommie and Tawni Ryden. It was for My Daughter's Fucking Blackzilla 10. It was really awesome. Both girls were joking about who could fuck me the hardest. They were almost getting jealous, pushing the other off and riding me to fuck the shit out of me and make me cum. She'd cum and push her off, suck my dick real good and I came halfway through the scene. One was riding me and the other had her pussy in face. It was out of control. In two or three minutes we finished the scene. They were so into it. It was like a competition.
PC: What has been one of your hottest off-screen sexual encounter?
SD: I couldn't tell you. I've had so many. (LOL) I've had a lot. Before I got into porn ... I had so many great experiences. I couldn't pick just one out.
SD: Not really. Even now I don't really look much at it. I get that question a lot. Growing up I knew my father and older brother were well-endowed. Seeing that, I thought it was normal. Then the whole porn thing came about and everyone was like, "Oh my God! Your dick is so thick." And this and that. I was like, "Well other guys are too." ManDingo, Jack Napier, Lex Steele ... Those are guys who I think are way bigger than me. I just never looked at other guy's penis and compared. In my opinion it's not a big thing. I don't think twice about the size of it. The only time I think about it is if I'm with a girl and she can't do the scene or she's hurting. Then it's brought to my attention.
PC: What do you enjoy doing sexually?
SD: Kissing. It sounds weird, but kissing and holding hands. That's the most intimate ... eye contact, kissing and holding hands. That's the first time I ever had a full blown erection and came. When I had my first girlfriend, we were in the park holding hands, kissing and I had an orgasm without doing anything. So if that happens in a scene, I get really aroused. It's more of a personal touch.
PC: Do you have any fetishes?
SD: No. I don't have any. I'm really into passionate sex. That's my thing. Hot passionate sex, because for me once it gets hot and passionate it could lead to other things like dominating. Hot passionate sex opens up the door to other things.
PC: What do you enjoy the most? Vaginal or anal sex?
PC: What are some of your sexual fantasies that you have fulfilled?
SD: Off-camera: Sex with four women at one time. That happened before I did porn. I only wanted two at the time, but it sort of happened.
On-camera: Two sisters. It was really something spectacular.
PC: Are there any sexual fantasies that you haven't fulfilled yet?
SD: That's it. People talk about the mile high club ... that's not a big thing for me. I like comfort and openness. Cars and planes are so restrictive and confined. I wouldn't enjoy it. Maybe I'd do it, just to say I did it. But to want to do it ... it's not a big thing. If anything, maybe I would like to be inside of a nightclub ... on that's not that packed ... with a girl I'm dating. I'd pull up her skirt and fuck her passionately. People would know I'm fucking, but it's not too over the top. We'd do it for like five minutes and I'd cum inside her. I'd pull her skirt down, we'd go on the dancefloor and start dancing.
PC: You have been featured in a variety of porn series ... and you are shooting some brand new ones for Vengeance XXX ... What has been one of your favorite series to shoot for?
SD: Right now, it's my stuff. She Only Takes Diesel and Face Full of Diesel. I did one last month with Raven Black as a nun. She was looking for donations, feels I'm a sinner and asks for forgiveness. I pull my cock out and she starts sucking. She's telling me she was a prostitute in Vegas that was saved. In the beginning, Blackzilla was awesome. But it became too much of a routine.
PC: Now that you are directing ... will you be performing any less?
SD: I will still be performing the same amount. Once I get the different series established (maybe one more) ... which should take about a year or year and a half ... I will slow down shooting other people. I would love to help new guys in the biz. I'd love to show them the right way. I'd teach them to save their money and show them the benefits. I would love to get a hold of new fresh young Black talent and give them good direction. There isn't a whole lot of good male talent. I will be directing some new guys within the next couple of months.
PC: Do you have your own official website?
PC: What are your future plans?
SD: My future plans are to continue working my job at the airport and probably retire there. In porn, I will continue performing if I can for the next two years and in between there directing other guys and myself. After I stop performing ... I will direct for another two years. Right now I'm in the real estate thing. I'm buying more homes and fixing them up. When the market comes back up, I will sell them. Porn is giving me the kind of money to do all my dreams. I'm buying properties and saving money for my retirement.
PC: Where do you see yourself in five years?
SD: Out of porn for sure. I will be working my job part-time. I've been saving since day one. I love art and I love to travel. I love to draw and travel. I see myself being a homebody ... still traveling and doing some art projects. That's my dream. I love photography and I want to get into it more professionally. I want to take pictures of places I frequent. Maybe do a book on my travels. Something like where the best drinks are ... or beaches. Things like that. If I travel, I might as well turn it into something I can make money off of. The best of both worlds.
PC: You have a strong fan base ... What does it feel like to know you have a large group of supporters behind you?
SD: It's awesome. It's great. I get a lot of fan mail. It's 'cause because my first true love fanbase is my gay fans. I get a lot of flack from other performers 'cause they don't want to do solo scenes. My gay fans sent me emails and joined my fan club first. The rest are fantastic. But, those guys have truly been there since day one.
PC: Well ... now I am going to ask you 7 questions that I call ... "Papi Chulo's LIST" ... These seven questions will be asked to all of my interview subjects ... What are your Top 5 favorite television shows?
SD: Nip/Tuck. LOST. Supernatural. Highlander. House.
PC: McDonald's Big Mac or Burger King's Whopper?
SD: Burger King's Whopper.
PC: Disney or Warner Bros?
SD: Warner Bros.
PC: What's your favorite sexual position?
SD: Don't know. It all depends on the mood I'm in. If I'm in a loving mood I like mish. If I'm in a passionate fuck mood ... it's gotta be doggy.
SD: Don't have one.
PC: If you could be anywhere right now ... Where would you be?
SD: I would love to be on a space shuttle right now ... looking down on earth.
PC: Well this brings us to the end of our interview ... Is there anything you would like to say to your fans?
PC: Thank you for this interview Shane Diesel ...
SD: No problem, my friend.
