THE BOY NEXT DOOR
"The Boy Next Door" is kind of a porn cliche. Really, it's quite cliche a term in general. So, you'd think that in a bout of unoriginality I would have given that title to a prior Dean's List honoree. As cliche as it is, it nonetheless evokes images that could apply to many CF Studs - seemingly innocent, approachable, friendly, all-American. Yet it never quite seemed the perfect match for anyone until Travis came along and I realized that he really is the absolute embodiment of "The Boy Next Door".
Travis has a soft spoken demeanor. His mannerism and looks have him come across as totally innocent. That shy smile and laugh would bring anyone's guard down. Further, as wild and as intense as many of his scenes may be here at CF - and many have been quite wild and intense! - he still retains this image of total innocence that is a tremendous part, no doubt, of his appeal.
After all, how much hotter is it that this soft spoken, shy and innocent young man has come to discover that he so thoroughly loves getting fucked and can't hide that fact when doing so on camera? How hot is it that his innocent faces flushes red as a fellow CF stud mercilessly drills him? How great is it that all these captivating traits and mannerisms exist within a young stud that has a tight, ripped body, an incredible face, and a big, thick dick?
Physically, Travis is stunning, and would be no less attractive if he came across as having an obvious wild streak and crazy personality. But the fact that he seems so reserved and quiet combines with those incredible looks in a package that has overwhelmed CF fans since he first appeared on the site! He is the kind of guy that is more prone to soft giggles than outbursts of laughter; he's more likely to blush and shrug his shoulders when complemented than he is to accept any praise with pride and gusto; in a crowd of people, you'll see him quietly observing rather than making himself the center of attention.
When stripped down and naked and in the midst of some intense sexual action, however, he becomes a whole new person! He'll talk dirty, urging his partner to fuck him harder; Travis will moan and groan and whimper; he'll pant and sweat and the expressions on his face betray his enthusiasm and excitement in a way you'd never otherwise expect from such a normally reserved young man.
Travis is no more the reserved young man off camera than he is the wild young man on camera. He is the perfect blend of both. In Travis, these two sides don't conflict, or contradict, so much as they absolutely compliment one another. We're all fortunate enough to have witnessed him discover that wilder side of himself - while preserving the endearingly innocent and charming part of himself - in front of our cameras and eyes.
