INTERVIEW – Owen Hawk opens up about his Just For Fans account. Find out why he started it, how it’s going and why you should follow him!
Owen Hawk knows a thing or two about gay porn. He’s the owner and founder of the super successful Raw Fuck Club. And like other studio owners and well known porn stars (think: Michael Lucas) he’s moving into and exploring the world of fan platforms like JustForFans.
Personally, I think this is a smart move.
Technology is changing at lightning speed, and with it, so are people’s expectations. I’m old enough (37, in case you’re wondering) to remember what happened with Napstar in the late 90s/early 00s. The music industry fought against technological change – and look where it is today.
Napstar might be gone, but the technological changes kept coming to the point where now, no one buys music like they used to. At worst, people download it for free (illegally), or at best, stream it, which gives the artists hardly any money.
Porn has faced similar challenges. So it’s good to see people like Owen embracing, rather than resisting change.
Who knows where it will lead? JustForFans might be the start of a whole new revolution – or it might be a stepping stone to the next big thing. Either way, it’s an interesting time for the industry as a whole.
I’m super thankful to Owen for taking time out of his busy schedule to talk to me. We chatted about his Just For Fans site and how it’s going for him so far.

JustForFans – Owen Hawk Interview
What made you decide to join Just For Fans and how’s it going so far for you?
I’ve always been a digital exhibitionist, so the chance to make money sharing my personal vids and sex life was exciting to me.
It’s going OK so far. I have had a good response to some things I’ve done.
I don’t expect to have a huge following on Just For Fans because I only have sex with my boyfriend. I see a lot of other accounts where guys are hooking up with a lot of different guys.
What do you like/don’t like about Just For Fans?
What I like is the ease of use of the site and the ability to directly distribute and communicate with fans.
I think there could be some improvements to the user interface but overall, it’s not bad.
Why should people follow you? What can they expect that they won’t find anywhere else?
If people follow me, they can expect to see something authentic.
We’re making these vids together as part of our sex life. It’s fun and we enjoy it. We’re not making them to be commercial products, so they are very real and represent our actual sex life together, not a produced version.
