He wanted to be an artist and studied at an art school and the University of Houston.(As Westwood dressed him for the shoot, he said, “She was putting things on me like a sculptor or painter. But still, “I could not find a job to save my life.I thought they’d reject me and was so depressed I wanted that negative affirmation.I was hungry for rejection.”But Sean Cody said yes, and Keller earns around $2,000 to film videos as a “top” (active partner), and more to “bottom.”Initially, Keller said he did not want to work with straight men who do gay-themed porn, but now it isn’t a problem.In a third, he is wearing a blue T-shirt, blue briefs, and yellow ankle boots.He poses full frontal, with modesty cleverly protected, in another Westwood shot, in a black evening coat and black boots; and another picture has him in a kind of white jumpsuit meets Regency dandy that recalls New Romanticism at its most gender-blurry.In states where the population saw itself as aspirational and upwardly mobile, he said, there were more hang-ups about being filmed—and being seen, possibly, by others and judged.“I got laid easily in Nashville, but no one would get laid on camera,” he said. In New York—a city full of people wanting to be on camera and who behave as if they are, and where one would have expected all manner of good times to roll—Keller ultimately had to have sex with another porn star.If Keller could afford to, he’d like to take this sex project international.***“It was really difficult,” Keller said of first making porn.
Keller said Westwood also could have heard of him through an auction both had participated in.He ended up in Venice for the fashion shoot just hours after finishing filming another non-porn project, this time a comedy for HBO.“It was an amazing, crazy experience,” he said of flying to Italy, although one pair of black perforated leather high-heeled boots didn’t fit his size 14 feet until a bright assistant had the idea to stretch them by dipping them into the water of a Venetian canal.When Keller arrived, he found Westwood taking a catnap under a table. My father told her, ‘If you ever touch him, or if he ever hurts himself, I’m getting a divorce and taking you to court.’”Keller paused.The shoot was a break from Keller’s Colby Does America project, in which he aims to have sex on camera with someone in every state (he is up to 49).
