Free-thinking, optimistic, creative, ambitious & well-rounded 

In high school, I was a free and combative person. I came out when I was 15 and making my own decisions changed my life in so many ways. After many difficult years, I finally felt the freedom to express myself fully, without any restraint. My status as a victim of bullying, seen as a child from an underprivileged family, changed to that of a popular, confident person not afraid to assert themselves. 

My childhood was very difficult, but I eventually reached an age where I found peace with my past. I look back on my youth as something that changed my life in a positive way. I grew up in a dysfunctional family. My mother is mentally ill and has always regretted having children. She could be cruel, suicidal or just crazy. Although we were not financially poor, she did not give us the affection or resources we deserved. My father, like my mother, had his own difficult past. My father chose to stay behind because he realized he was stuck in a situation he couldn’t change. My first 8 years of life, I was depressed, without really understanding why. From 12 to 15 years old, I became more and more aware and I resisted because I realized that we were not loved. Luckily, I have a twin sister and we have always supported each other. In our home, there was no love, no hugs, no goodnight wishes, no talking about friends, etc. We were both bullied at school from ages 10 to 15. When I was 15, I came out and felt free. At school I could be myself and I had the best time of my life. For the first time, I could express myself freely. But after keeping it all to myself for so long, I wanted to fully express my sexuality and I searched. I quickly came into contact with bad people online. My 16th year of life was very decisive for me. I started to realize a lot of things, to choose how I wanted to live my life. I left home a few months after my 17th birthday, thinking I was strong and choosing my own path, not realizing that I would still have to face my greatest trauma. Surviving while still going to school was difficult, it brought me into contact with people who abused me, and I fell into drugs to forget myself. I am grateful to all the people who have crossed my path and helped me in life. It took me a while to figure it all out, get my life in order, and find peace with who I am and where I came from. I know it’s a lot to read, but my past is impossible to summarize in three sentences. I’m thinking of writing a book to draw attention to young gay people who grow up in dysfunctional families and who are victims of society.

Galiel Swan (@swangaliel), because he was one of the first experienced actors I came into contact with. I filmed my first OnlyFans scenes with him and he is just a lovely person.

Greg McKeon (@grgisthewerd), I met Greg with his husband Colton (@collegebro4you) when we filmed a threesome scene in Amsterdam for our pages. We worked together many times, organizing twink orgies for our pages and he became a friend.

Tobiass (@Tobiass_of), I knew him early in my career when we were on the same level with our pages and we’ve been friends ever since, he’s fun, creative and thinks differently

I could cite many more, such as the shooting of Staxus International College, in collaboration with Carnal+ (a studio based in the United States), …

100%, platforms such as Onlyfans have allowed us to have direct contact with fans, they can reach us, talk with us, etc. I reply to all my messages on Onlyfans and I am very open and personal with my fans. I can also post more personal content, which creates a much more personal experience for fans. Now I’m on the other side of the game, but if I was still a fan of porn, I would love how the industry has changed. Once we dreamed of meeting a porn actor, now it’s possible and it’s not even that expensive. I think the fans are a lot more loyal now that they follow me in a more personal way, they appreciate what I do, they can comment on what I do. And I love talking to them, it’s made my job a lot more fun too.

I really appreciate how subscription platforms have changed the porn industry by giving more power to creators and allowing fans to feel more connected with their favorite actors. It has also created a stronger community between fans and creators because the interactions are more direct and personal. I’m happy to be in this industry at a time where we can use these new methods of communication to connect with our audience. I love that I can choose the content I put out, be more creative, and choose who I work with. There are only positive points.

It’s hard for me to choose between the first twink orgy I organized and my collaboration with HungTwinks (@hungtwinks), because both were very successful, but also very different. The first time I organized a twink orgy I was nervous, but I managed to bring together an amazing group of models and create a truly unforgettable moment/scene.

On the other hand, my collaboration with HungTwinks was much more focused and professional, and we created very specific and high-quality content for our big cock fans.

@CraigKennedyxxx, @hungtwinks

Overall, I’m proud of both projects and can’t choose one or the other. Each experience has been unique and provided me with different opportunities to connect with my fans and create content.

Of course ! Dakota White and Johnny Rapid are my favorites, but I could name others as well.

After finally finding my calling, I worked in different jobs, going from being a dishwasher to working in hotels, movie theaters, garden centers, etc. In every job, I sought to progress because I am ambitious, but I never felt satisfied. I continued to be creative as I was studying the arts, but since I couldn’t afford to continue my studies, it remained something I tried in my spare time. At the best of times, I managed to become an assistant housekeeper in a five-star hotel and was on my way to becoming a housekeeper the following year. But I still didn’t feel accomplished and I couldn’t accept that my life still worked out this way. I always thought my life would be bigger. Not just financially, but also creative, free and ambitious. During the off season, I started my own business with health/cosmetic products and was invited by a gallery to exhibit my artwork. Unfortunately, the pandemic came, canceled a lot of things and made me realize that I needed to get my life back together. Doing porn was always in the back of my mind and I dreamed of doing it, but I never really had the courage to do it. The pandemic changed that for me.

Not really, my first scenes happened very naturally. I was motivated to perform and Timmy Treasure at Staxus was very understanding, encouraging and supporting me. I also had to wait a long time to do my first scenes due to travel restrictions, so I was fully prepared.

I already feel very lucky to have been able to collaborate with many models that I love. I have toured with many popular European twinks, but I would love to tour the US one day. Who knows what the future holds, but I wouldn’t say no to a scene with Joey Mills.

Yes, it has been difficult and it is also the reason why I chose to take a break from studio work. I tried to make my way and be relevant in studio porn, but quickly realized that I was spending too much time and effort on studio scenes. So I decided to take a break and focus on my own platforms first. I think my fans deserve the best and at the moment I prefer to create a stage directly for them rather than working for a studio. I plan to come back and create new scenes in the studio as I still dream of being a known and accomplished porn actor, but I would prefer to shoot scenes for different studios so I can plan my work more freely.

Yes, there has been a big change. It was much easier to promote before, but social media platforms are constantly changing their algorithms and how they work, requiring us to constantly adapt. We must always improve and find different ways to promote. X/Twitter has been my main page (@CraigKennedyXXX) and the most reliable platform to promote. Nowadays it’s all about reels and tiktoks, whereas before I promoted more on Reddit and X/Twitter. My French tiktok account is @craigkennedyxxl. Also on my OnlyFans, my way of promoting has changed. Now I include my fans a lot more in the collaborations I do, I talk with them about the videos in messages, when there will be a new release, etc. I’m creating more side content to tease fans about new releases and I’m always trying to improve my content. The quality of the content takes priority.

I loved working for Carnal+ during the collaboration with the Staxus studio, so I would love to cross the ocean and discover what the United States could offer me. 

I have learned that my individual scenes are more important to my body of work than my work for a single studio, so I am not picky in choosing a studio. Of course, I have my preferences and I wouldn’t work for just any studio either.

I love taking care of my plants, I love nature and I have a green thumb. I like to paint, draw and write. Recently, I discovered that I am a natural good cook, although I am still recovering from an eating disorder. I’m surprised I’m actually good at this.

France, Jamaica, Spain, Thailand, Rwanda (not yet visited but high on the list)

I listen to many genres of music because I love music, but generally I listen to Dancehall, French rap, reggae, hip-hop and R&B. At the moment I like to listen to Blaiz Fayah, a French dancehall artist and Little Lion Sound, a reggae production. 

The Matrix, Hunger Games and a movie I can’t remember the name of. It’s a movie about young friends who find peace and fun by dating and taking drugs until one of the friends suddenly dies. It’s not a remarkable film story-wise, but the film made me realize that I needed to give up this lifestyle and change my life drastically.

I really like this question because I often like to think and fantasize about different dimensions. I’m afraid that many of my versions will have a tragic life or end and I think I’m one of the lucky ones who gets to live their lives freely and happily. I hope that some of my versions are excellent artists, known for their art and their influence on society. My version is non-rhythmic and I can’t sing, but in my dreams there are Kennedys singing opera and playing the saxophone. I hope some of them discover the world as free nomads. I hope that some were lucky enough to grow up normally and had the chance to pursue their passion and become remarkable historians or scientists.

This year, I would like to create a new twink orgy, work with new studios if they are interested and above all work with people I like to work with, people I like.

The recognition I received was a big boost for me and validation that I am good at what I do. I am super proud and grateful that among all French creators, I am the one who received the distinction of « Outstanding French Content Creator ». France is in my heart and I thank all my French fans for their support and love. I am optimistic for 2024 and hope to discover new things and evolve.

Doing porn has changed my life in many positive ways, but most of all, I’m grateful to have been able to find myself, rediscover sex, and overcome trauma. My career in porn has helped me gain confidence in many ways.
