I’m not gonna lie, when Teddy Torres came to see us in Barcelona last summer, I was gutted we didn’t get to actually meet face to face. Not only because Teddy is ridiculously handsome and speaks with the sexiest of French accents but also because the man loves a diva. Yes, and although Teddy may stan for Celine the most, he loves a Mariah moment just as much as the next lamb.
Now, I know when speaking to a porn star, you’re supposed to ask all the regular questions about fisting, bottoming and other industry gossip, but honestly when you know you both know the lyrics to ‘It’s All Coming Back To Me Now’ backwards – those were the last things I wanted to talk about. Well, okay, not quite the last.
But instead of heading to the nearest karaoke bar to sing the Barbra/Celine duet, ‘Tell Him’, we put Teddy in front of Jordi Chicletol’s lens, and watched as he vogued his way through ‘Pour Que Tu M’aimes Encore.’ Celine, we’re converted.
Teddy, it’s your last night in Barcelona! What do you have planned?
Just to finish our trip with some good food! My husband and I might go to Metro and meet Massimo Piano, another porn star who lives here in Barcelona. I really like Metro, they always play this 80s music when I go.
Yes, to 80s music. Every time. And what about the rest of your trip?
Well, we went to Athens for Pride. They hosted this new festival, Eutopia, there and it was so great. They had so many DJs, a pool party, beautiful guys – everything! It was quite intimate this year but I’m sure over the next few years it’ll grow to be huge. My husband and I met some really nice guys there and we all went to Mykonos together which was magical.
That sounds full on! What has been the highlight?
Besides the Loverboy photo shoot? I would have to say that first moment, when you turn the corner on your scooter and suddenly you see Paradise Beach at Mykonos. It’s just a dream. Where do I go in Barcelona? Haha….I always go to Mar Bella and get naked. Do I get recognised? Yes, but people are always really nice. Some want to take a photo, others just want to say hi – it’s all good! I’m happy either way, because for me, meeting people is all part of the holiday anyway.
What about life back home in Montreal? You’re a hairdresser, right?
Yeah, I used to be a hairdresser instructor!
I thought you would work in this Folsom-style barbers…
Hahaha…well, now that my boss knows about the porn, he says to me, ‘Wouldn’t you rather cut men’s hair?’ I’m like, ‘No, come on, you knew me before all that, when I was working for L’Oreal!’ Of course as a barber you have a lot of men, but I love women too. I love the different techniques – like colouring!
Yaaaas…so much more fun. And you have no plans to leave Montreal?
No. It’s pretty multicultural there, I’m happy. There’s a really good gay scene there.
I heard Toronto is great for that too.
Yeah, but Montreal is better. Haha…Montreal has two weeks of Pride in the summer. So many drag shows!
What’s your favourite kind of party?
I’m really kinky, so of course I love going to Berlin! You can just do what you want there – get naked in the club! I like to feel free, you know? You have to go to Snacks at Berghain. They open the Lab.Oratory, the sex club downstairs, and have something like nine thousand guys there.
Every year it’s a different theme. This year it was The Walking Dead. They projected clips of a city on the wall while everyone was fucking each other over all these old cars. It really felt like a zombie movie with everyone making these ‘Unggggghhhhh!’ noises as they were fucking!
OK we clearly need to stop our yearly pilgrimage to San Francisco and try Berlin.
I love San Francisco too. There’s such a gay history everywhere you go there. Last time I was there all the shops had posters up saying, ‘STOP RACISM AND HOMOPHOBIA!’ That’s so important.
OK, so you shot one of Loverboy’s most popular shoots of all time last summer. How was this year different?
Last year I was naked on Christoffer’s terrace naked, putting all this oil on my body – all the neighbours were watching! Haha…But this time Jordi was working with an assistant, and they knew exactly what they wanted. They came armed with a wardrobe, poses and direction. They had some girly swimsuits too but we didn’t have time to try them. Next time I want to feel like Pamela Anderson, I’ll know where to come.
Who is your favourite studio to shoot for?
That’s hard! I really like shooting for Raging Stallion because I have a real crush on the Director, Steve Cruz….and he is so talented! He’s easy to work with and that’s really important because sometimes it can take ten hours(!) to shoot a twenty minute scene.
I loved shooting some scenes with Diego Reyes in Malaga for Men At Play too. I have a huge crush on him too. I also liked wearing a suit. Haha…
And of course I love shooting for EricVideos.com too. Last year we shot in San Francisco right down by the Golden Gate Bridge, just as the sun set. It was funny because maybe twenty other people were there who began jerking-off around us.
I think you should work with Tegan Zayne.
We’ve done it! On my last shoot for Raging Stallion I had a foursome with him. He’s really beautiful.
Do you see slimmer guys, like Tegan, being more popular right now?
I was actually talking to Eric, from EricVideos.com, about this the other day. Asian videos are really popular right now. And shorter guys too. A lot of guys love Johnny Rapid because he’s smaller.
What’s your favourite fetish?
Well, if you just want sex for sex’s sake you can go on an app and sort it out. But for something like bondage, for example, you have to have an amazing connection because you can’t speak, sometimes you can’t even see each other! I love being tied up, or tying someone else up. I prefer it in a one-on-one situation. I love playing with electro too, that’s a bit of a fantasy of mine. I don’t like full-on pain but I love pushing the limits.
I’ve tried fisting but the guy literally wanted me to fist him and leave. That was it. It was kind of boring.
Yeah, the problem with fisting is that the people who want that, want only that. I mean I love it too, but I do like other stuff as well.
Are you active or passive in the fisting?
Both! It depends on who the other person is and we need to have an amazing connection obviously. I am more of a top though generally.
OK, some stupid questions. Where would we go for a first date?
I don’t really do dates. I’m romantic but it’s normally after sex! The first time I met my husband-to-be, he was waiting for me, face down with his ass in the air! I was like, ‘Hmmm, I think I will see him again.’ When I think about it, everyone I ever dated – we started out by fucking!
So, if it wasn’t the first date, I would take you to Paradise Beach at Mykonos. When we were there this summer, we met some Brazilian guys, rented a bed on the beach and all just cuddled up together.
What is the best tweet you have ever received?
I’m not very good on Twitter. But I can tell you that every week I receive a message from a certain fan of mine. He messages me on every channel, Twitter, Instagram, everything. He wants a video of me douching!
It’s like I met one guy two months ago at my salon, he just came in for a haircut. He’s come ever since and he travels all the way from Toronto, just to get a haircut from me!
Well, I travelled to Paris to meet, sorry, interview, Francois.
He’s really nice. We haven’t shot together yet. I saw him just before Easter and we spent some time together.
Haha…I had a poster of him on my wall when I was 14 years old. Now it’s totally different. I prefer the fashion stuff like the Moschino show. I would love to shoot a scene with Francois Sagat of course. Maybe it will happen in the future…….
What is the most expensive item of clothing you have?
I love fashion but spending so much is not something I do often. I prefer buying vintage. Last year I did buy some Vivienne Westwood trousers. I think they were 800€ but they were perfect. So I use them for special occasions. Maybe if I go see Mariah for Christmas…
If you were arrested for stalking someone who would it be?
Do you know that the only non-porn, famous person I follow on Instagram is Celine Dion.
What’s your favourite song of hers?
In French or English?
In French it’s ‘Pour Que Tu M’aimes Encore’ and in English it’s ‘It’s All Coming Back To Me Now’ it’s so kitsch. I love ‘I Drove All Night’ too. I really follow Celine Dion everywhere. She is the only major celebrity I follow.
I’m loving her style now, thanks to Law Roach.
Yes, me too, although sometimes it can be too much. It was a bit much, when she sang ‘My Heart Will Go On’ in that huge white dress by Stephane Rolland. But it was funny. Did you see this picture of her wearing latex socks? Big big shoes and latex socks!
I will always remember the backward tuxedo. Is your love for her a new thing?
I always loved her but my husband is a big fan so now I love her even more.
Tell us a secret.
I love eating ice cream in secret. I’m always trying to diet, so I only ever eat it in secret. My favourite is mint choc chip.
OMG. Us too. Well, that, or Cookie Dough, or Pralines & Cream. Now last year we asked you for your favourite Mariah song and you said ‘We Belong Together’ was actually your summer anthem. So now we have to ask, what is it this year?!
I actually put ‘Hero’ on my playlist two days ago but I definitely prefer watching her on YouTube than listening to her. I love that clip where she defines LGBT as well. She’s crazy. Oh, and that gif where she created gays! Amazing.

Thanks to our assistant Jan too, follow him on Instagram too.
