Andrew Christian's Colby Melvin: Up Close & Personal
If you've seen Andrew Christian's “Jockstrap Cowboys” video, you probably know who Colby Melvin is. You also probably have a crush on him. The Underwear Expert caught up with the Southern boy for some casual chit chat.
The Underwear Expert: So, after watching the “Jockstrap Cowboy” video, I have to ask: I heard you were fine with nudity, but not frontal nudity. What’s that about?
Colby Melvin: The way I look at it is: everyone has a butt. I don’t think there’s anything vulgar about it. Rear nudity I don’t really consider nudity so that’s why I’m comfortable showing that. Certain aspects, of course--nothing vulgar, always artistic--you know, I’m not looking to do porn. Frontal nudity is just a personal choice with all of this, you know?
The Underwear Expert: Fair enough, although your fans might not like that answer. Maybe you can be a no-nudity role model?
Colby Melvin: I do think we need stronger role models in the gay community. You know, when kids are coming out and they’re looking for who to look up to and are trying to figure out how to be gay--I think that, while I have a ton of friends who are porn stars and do porn and everything, I think we need a more diverse selection of role models for the up and coming gay generation. And, yeah of course, I’m in this video and that photo, but I’m really into philanthropy and everything. And I don’t want to cross the line of “Here’s my frontal nudity” and become vulgar.
The Underwear Expert: Do u have any more Andrew Christian shoots coming up?
Colby Melvin: I just moved to LA like two weeks ago and I’m going to be shooting with them a lot more.
The Underwear Expert: How’s it feel to be modeling for Andrew Christian?
Colby Melvin: When I started modeling I was like “You know what, that’s my goal. That’s where I wanna get.” And the fact that, you know, here I am in less than a year and I’m modeling for them and I’m in the videos.. I honestly feel like the luckiest boy in the world. I had this dream and it actually happened.
