Hello Logan, for those who might not know you please let us know you are and please describe yourself?

My name is Logan Pierce and I am a male performer in the adult film industry. I shot my first scene on my third day in Los Angeles back in 2012, and I’ve been performing full time for almost eight years now. Outside of porn I am also a writer, publishing my first autobiographical fiction novel in late 2017 and then a collection of poetry in 2018.

What prompted you to join the adult industry?

I started watching VHS porn and reading hardcore literotica at a young age, and then when I was hitting puberty AOL and Internet explorer had become household names so I became accustomed to Internet porn and adult themed chat rooms, always sneaking onto the family computer after my parents went to bed. To say I was infatuated would be putting it mildly—I was obsessed with porn. Regarding performing, I didn’t know whether or not I had the right tool, the look, or even the ability to become a performer, all I knew was that if I were ever given the opportunity I would jump for it. Flash forward to college: I was familiar with major porn studios, talent agencies, and contemporary performers. I submitted bios and photos of myself to agencies and just kind of hoped for the best. 99% of them went unanswered but a small (now defunct) agency contacted me and said they’d be willing to find me work. Concurrently, I had just been accepted into my university’s “study away” program in Los Angeles. It was almost as if all the pieces just fell into place. I came out to LA about a month or so later, shot my first scene, and the rest is…

On top of being a performer you are also a published author. The first is Between the Sheets: Rise of a Working Stiff, a memoir. What prompted you to write this book and what was your process when it came to writing?

I have always considered myself a writer. Since middle school I was writing short stories and small 3-page screenplays for my friends and I to film. I later went to film school and focused primarily on writing so it remained a big part of my life and continued with my journey to LA. I began journaling about my life in porn and quickly realized that I’d like to share these experiences with an audience. The journaling process was more cathartic, the words just poured out of me, but the transcription, synthesis, and final edit into a cohesive narrative took some quality time to get right.

The other book you have out is a collection of poems called The Changing of the Seasons. How did the idea of this come about and did you find it difficult to write enough poems or deciding which ones to include?

Along with the longer narrative driven stories, I often scrawl a few poems here and there in a playful attempt to condense the story into just a few short lines. Some of them I’m really proud of and others I think are shit but that’s just part of the writing process. I wanted something supplemental to act as a sort of spiritual successor to Between the Sheets, something to bridge the gap and accelerate time up until the beginning of the second novel.

I’m sure you probably have some other writing projects in the works or that you are thinking about. Could you share some info on these or are they a secret for the moment?

I always have ideas and stories ruminating in my mind, the hard part is actually committing them to paper, but right now I have a true sequel to Between the Sheets in the work as well as another collection of poetry. Beyond that I have two short film screenplays I’d like to produce, and I’d like to cut my teeth on a few porn scripts in the future.

You were also involved with a mainstream movie called City of Ticks. What was it like to be on a mainstream set and what is it about? Also, how can people see the movie if they were so inclined?

City of Ticks is a short adventure horror film about two American archeologists who unwittingly unleash and ancient curse while on assignment in Guatemala. The production was amazing; we were on location in Guatemala for about eight days, driving to a new city each day, traversing the jungle, and shooting atop ancient Mayan ruins. The film was independently financed and the crew was really tight, with everyone wearing multiple hats. There was a lot of run and gun filmmaking and tons of improvisation on set. The film is currently available to watch on Vimeo and Youtube. Rob Himebaugh, the writer/director of City of Ticks, is currently in preproduction for his next horror film, a New England Ghost story entitled, “Widow’s Deep.” I am very excited for this one so keep your eyes peeled for it in the Spring/Summer of 2020.

What advice would you give someone who is thinking about joining the adult industry?

Some Advice I would stress to aspiring performers would be the importance of financial acumen, and the importance of humility and a sense of humor about oneself.

Who would you say your idols are, either within the industry or not?

Someone I truly respect in the business is Small Hands.

What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?

When I’m not writing or fucking I can usually be found on the golf course. I started golfing about three years ago and it’s become one of my favorite hobbies. My skill level is still mediocre-at-best but I have fun and am always trying to improve. I am an avid movie watcher too, so I try to go out to the theaters at least once a week.

Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?

I shot a film for Shine Louise Houston’s “Crash Pad” series that I am very excited for. I acted and performed alongside Lotus Lain. That movie should be released in early 2020.
