When Jean-Daniel first arrived in our offices, George Duroy asked him about shooting full sex scenes. "He was very straightforward. He told me that he was not opposed to shooting and that he was in bad need of the money, because he had a fairly high debt," George recalls. "But he wouldn't go ahead without asking his folks at home about it because he didn't want to lie to them. And so he did." Two weeks later, he called and confirmed that he had been given the go-ahead. "I could hear him blushing through the telephone."
That was in April of 2009. Since then he has participated in a couple of fashion shoots in Paris as well as photo sessions with Greg Gorman, Howard Roffman, Marty Stevens and George himself, all of whom expressed pleasure at working with Jean-Daniel. He has also made several extended trips to Cape Town, South Africa, which exposed him to new cultures and broadened his worldview.
Jean-Daniel now has a number of episodes under his belt for Bel Ami and gets better every time. "It is interesting to see how happy he is coming here and working, discovering a whole new world," George says. The trip to Paris was his first plane trip; sharing a room with Luke Hamill, his first anal penetration. A trip to Budapest brought his first drag show experience. "All of it he loved immensely, feeling a bit like Alice in Wonderland" recalls George. "For me it was great fun to see him savoring it."
By now Jean-Daniel's debts have been paid off and luckily for us, he has indicated no interest to quit and return to his previous life in an industrial neighborhood. George considers meeting Jean-Daniel "love at first sight" and believes he is becoming a first-class model. He is already one of the most popular boys among our online customers. "Jean-Daniel appeals to the twink lovers because he is quite youthful," George says. "But with that incredible body, he appeals to muscle lovers at the same time. And he is also quite tender and sensual. These are rare qualities to find in one package."
