|Aryx Quinn likes it hot|
"time to do some fact-checking, son!"
As far as the 'nomenclature' or name game that seems to follow me - here is the reason why: the Aryx Quinn character’s origins were actually when I was a young teen playing Dungeons and Dragons. Yes, I was a total 'dork' in society's eye, but I could care less - I'm happy with me. Aryx was everything I wasn't: tall, strong, handsome, confident. For a pimply faced, unpopular, weak teen, he was a vessel in which to throw my dreams. Never thought I could be him, until you fast-forward 10 years, and a stint in the 82nd Airborne later...came out as a changed boy into a man.
Aryx was born, and into BG East he went. Out of respect for Kid Leopard, I kept the character’s name separate when taking it into a purely sexual role. The Tristan Baldwin moniker was a hybrid of two things. Apparently, I look a bit like Stephen Baldwin, and some of my favorite characters have been named Tristan - namely Brad Pitt from legends of the fall, and Tristan from Tristan and Isolde. Other than that? There aren't any other names I work under, and in retrospect, I wish I had just stuck with the basic Aryx Quinn for it all.
|As Tristan Baldwin, Aryx gives gang-bang porn two thumbs up|
|Talk about "it gets better!" Pimply faced weakling no more!|

|Did Aryx cross a line|
with Rusty Stevens?
As far as the comments trashing the East Coast and a certain Boston-based company, all I can say is that loyalty to a person should exceed everything else. The same mindset is not embraced in the leadership at BG East. For every new fish you think you'll hook on the line you lose two that you already have on the strainer. Hard feelings? Lots of them. If you don't know a good thing when you see it you'll certainly know when it hits you with a clothesline.
Bard: Cryptic and pointed all at the same time! You're a complex man, Aryx Quinn. Since I'm the one that has you on the line at the moment, so to speak, I don't want you to get away without telling me some juicy bits about what you think are the highlights of your wrestling career thus far. Like I said, your verbal tussle with Rusty in Arena 1 followed by your full contact physical tussle in Arena 2 are some of my all time favorite mat moments. If you had to put your finger on one or two most memorable wrestling moments for you, what and who would you finger?
|Nick Archer impressed Aryx with brains, brawn and bravado|
|Aryx grew unintentionally stiff with Brad Rochelle|
|Mitch ripped out both of Aryx' nipple rings|
From a humor standpoint I remember during a taping when I was battling against Jimmy Gee. Jonny Firestorm was just outside the ring. I continually was calling Jimmy a slob over and over and over again, and Jonny was just in stitches laughing. It's become a nonstop joke between us ever since.
Bard: You've got your own private collection with a Mike Colombo match?! I can name a dozen fans that would pop a cork to see that! It sounds like both the major bumps and bruises as well as the humor and good fun stand out for you. I'm glad your nipples have recovered from Mitch's punishment! Are there any matches that stick out as particularly sexy from your perspective as a wrestler? Any particular opponents that turned you on hardest? Any particular moves, maneuvers, gear or settings that get your engine revving loudest?
|Who else wants to see the lost tapes with Aryx wrestling Mike Columbo!?|
|AJ Irons "was born to be a jobber"|
|Bulging shoulders and biceps|
Bard: Why, thanks for asking! My core has always been my major strength. I can do an ab workout for hours. Quite a bit of Pilates and yoga have probably helped accentuate that over the years. My top weakness is the same as yours. I just despise leg workouts. I don't enjoy them and seldom prioritize them, so it shows. Tell me the secret that works for you once you find it!
Aryx: Chances are I’ll never find. After all, the process of searching for something means you're going to fail may times before you find it. I really don't feel like failing that many times with legs before I find the right answer on how to do them. [laughing]
Bard: What are some things that fans don't know about Aryx Quinn? What are some of your passions, other than dominating an opponent and fucking him dizzy?
|Who's top dog here?|
Huge fan of the outdoors and being in the sun, so places like Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles and Florida are on my list of priorities, year round. Prefer to be hot than cold any day. Aryx Quinn went to college for criminal justice but obviously not into enforcing the law ...I'm into breaking it. [laughing]
|Aryx "detains" and pats down hunky Alexi|
in BG East's new release Ring Revenge
Aryx: As far as economics or marketing, I've definitely always had more of a business mind than a law-enforcement mind. However those skinned up hairdos and tough alpha male looks always attract me. Social deviance. That's me in a nutshell. Do you know that during the polygraph screenings for the state of Connecticut for the majority of the police departments, there is a section entitled 'deviance?' Here there are a variety of questions that they ask you about inappropriate things you might of done at work or during sex, and believe it or not, one of the questions pertains to homosexuality... almost as if it's a deviant topic! Why list it under this heading, unless they clearly don’t approve? So politically incorrect it's not even funny.
|Aryx stokes my military porn fantasies|
Bard, you laugh! Your "bad porn" fantasy of guys in fatigues throwing down in the barracks isn't far from the truth. It was always commonly known that if you wanted something it could be had. There was also a room at the end of the hall where we put extra mattresses... entire room was covered them. We called this the boom-boom room. If two guys had an issue they could go into the room, fight it out, wrestle it out, choke each other out, beat each other, get it out of their system. Hot, hot stuff.
Bard: Damn! I'm going to have to reevaluate my "military" wrestling porn! And I took what was, I'm sure, the same standardized mental health test that you're talking about, for a job I once had. I was also shocked about the homosexuality questions. That test was originally developed over 70 years ago, and there are a lot of ridiculous questions that never made good sense, but today they're downright insulting. I'm glad that times are changing when it comes to recognizing what's "normal" is broader and deeper than what many people used to think it was decades ago.
So I just saw on your Twitter feed that you were named Escort of the Year. Congratulations! I was just getting turned on by reading several of your clients' extremely satisfied reviews of their time with you. It sounds like a lot of them find it a special treat to have you put on some wrestling gear and work them over as a dominating heel. What do you think about the role of wrestling kink, pain, and domination in the sexual fantasies of so many gay men?
|"... at least 30 to 40% of my calls involve|
wrestling or gear."
Let me tell you, the wrestling and gear fetish is much more widespread than people think. When I say that at least 30 to 40% of my calls involve wrestling or gear of some kind... it's pretty cool. Also, it makes you wonder. Given that there so many people out there that are into this, how come people from global fight don't actually link up more? It seems like there are so many flakes out there or people are too closeted about it, when there is no reason to be. It's completely normal, and if you think you're alone, you're not. There are a shit ton of people into this.
|"Whatever you're going to do, be the best at it."|
Bard: Regarding the "punish me" aspect of homoerotic wrestling, I've often wondered how much internalized crap there could be in some corners of our kink world... the "hurt me 'cause I'm just a little faggot" self-hatred script.... I'm glad to hear it's a line you won't cross. When I see the "smear the queer" theme in wrestling products, I have a similar response. I just walk away.
Aryx: I couldn't agree more with the total disgust towards the 'smeer the queer' direction that not just some wrestling products, but mainstream porn too, is heading in! Men.com is infamous for having 'gay-hazing' scenes, and I cannot understand for the life of me why people are purchasing such a product! It's disgusting! I'll never cross that line, no matter how much you pay me. Or...errr...well....it'd have to have a lot of zeros...and then when it clears, I'll come and kick the ass of the person who produced it,
for real. [laughing] ... and use the money for my legal defense.
By the way, boy do I have news for you! A guy who enjoys wrestling that I connect with outside of work, is friends with Drake Marcos. He FaceTimed..which is a live connection via phone like Skype... with Drake while we were wrestling together in a hotel room. So Drake saw me battle my friend for over two hours! Isn't he just a cute little thing?! Cheshire Cat, indeed. As I was putting my friend into hold after hold, I was sure to look at the phone and give the finger and talk shit to him...and I cannot wait for the day that we get to battle.
|Maddy and her muscleboy|
On the theme of you being a big teddy bear, I just got the pics you sent of you and Maddy, and it's clear that that girl's got you wrapped around her little paw. Adorable, and that adoring smile on the face of notorious wrestling badboy Aryx Quinn is astonishingly sexy. Love it!
You've been really generous with your time during a busy time of year. I want to thank you for being so patient with me in getting this interview lined up. Anything else you'd like to say to your legions of wrestling fans?
