Dear RentMen Visitors, Recently BlackCat chose to answer 16 interview questions and his interview was last updated on .
How do you go that ‘extra mile' in your life?
I don't cut myself any slack when it comes to accountability. I try to own my flaws in their entirety, without indulging in self-hatred or sinking into neurosis.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or you are more of a homebody?
Travel? Ha! I can't afford to travel very far. I do enjoy it, though. I'd like to visit Columbus, home to the largest bathhouse in the United States.
What’s your lifestyle? What makes you who you are?
I do my best to lead a productive life. I'm beginning graduate school to get a degree in cybersecurity, not because it'll make me money, but because it'll let me help people.
I mean, I have things I do for recreation. Punk rock and goth shows. I love a good book or film. I avidly play chess. But that's all secondary to leading a life that makes the world a little less shitty.
If you have to pick one think that everyone else should absolutely know about you, what would it be?
I have a personality. I'm not just a submissive, semen-stained sock puppet. I mean, I am that, but I'm also the sub for guys who are down for conversation /and/ sexual violence. Not just the latter.
What do you enjoy most about yourself?
My ironic sense of humor. The fact that I'm intelligent, and that I care about the things I believe. The fact that I'm blessed with a submissive sexuality and get to feel what it's like to let a man control me, to put all my trust in him.
What do you do for fun?
DRUGS. No, I'm ddf. I love punk concerts, other alternative music events. Cities are always beautiful to me, and I love exploring them, trying restaurants, and cafes, looking at art exhibits. Peoplewatching. I like that, too. I don't mean to sound pretentious, but the sheer complexity and uniqueness of human faces, the fact that behind every one of them is a mind with their own feelings, beliefs, regrets, hopes . . . It's an amazing thing to contemplate.
What makes you stand out from the crowd?
My appearance. My personality, for better and for worse. My deeply submissive nature.
If you and I were on the beach having some wine and great food, what would you tell me about yourself.
Recently, I've come to the realization that we have agency in our own lives. We're responsible for our own happiness. Nobody else. And life isn't something that happens to you, it requires your agency. So to that point, I've really started embracing life in a way I never did before. Let's try that new fetish, let's go to that event, let's apply for that new apartment. Et cetera.
What should others absolutely know about you?
My private gallery password is "1985." No period.
What are your hobbies? What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love working with makeup, cooking, and exercising. And I especially love cooking for Doms.
What is your ‘niche’?
Edgy androgyny, sex positivity, and the bottom bunk.
Tell us what you consider to be your greatest life experience.
I think the most recent really great experience I've had was my first high-quality BDSM experience. The Dom I played with was a lovely, intelligent, kind man who had a ton of experience. A real renaissance man, with a house packed with books, gear, and objets d'art. The kind of person I'd like to be. He flogged me, poured hot wax over my back . . . but the most exciting part of it was mental. The first time a guy had ever truly made me submit, brought me to heel. It was wonderful, and left me feeling the happiest I'd been in a while.
What would you like your followers to know about you that is unique and even a bit personal?
For me, sex work is the only way I can really make a living without compromising my anticapitalist politics and my sense of self. All these gay boys working in the system that exists now, selling makeup, selling preworkout supplements, working in corporate management . . . I'm not like them. I hate having to censor myself, put on a mask that's inoffensive to the mainstream. And I hate to participate in an economic system that I see as fundamentally unethical, coercive, and destructive.
What kind of diet and fitness regiment do you follow?
I don't drink or smoke. So I'm a pretty terrible goth. I generally follow a pseudo-paleo diet. All the veggies. Bone broth. Gourmet coffee. I exercise regularly and avoid drugs and alcohol. Mostly.
What are your greatest personal traits?
I'm much tougher, mentally speaking, than most would guess, and I'm also very compassionate and mature. As far as more prurient subjects go, I can do androgyny very, very well. And I'm a very good bottom.
Name 5 things that you can’t live without.
In no particular order, gothy music, black clothing, makeup, tasty, healthy food, and hedonism.
