It’s late April and we’re still the the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Quarantine has been a surreal trip, to say the least, and it’s unclear when it will be over. To keep our fans (and selves) entertained, DykedDown reached out to some of our favorite friends and colleagues to check in and see how they were holding up. The following is an interview with the one and only Lance Hart, conducted about 45 days into quar. Here’s how the Vegas-based performer is holding up.
DykedDown: Are you the type of person who’s naturally prepared for apocalyptic scenarios?
Lance Hart: I try to be. I keep a gun in every room at home and body armor and an AK hidden in my truck. I had a good amount of ammo, but once all this hit I immediately stocked up on more. Guns and ammo aren’t bad investments because they don’t lose value. In times like this they actually go up a lot in value. The other day, I traded an old pump shotgun for a couple N95 masks and $300 with JP from Kink.com.
Currently we have at least 6 months worth of non-perishable food for us and the cats, kitty litter for a year, bottled water for 4 months, a few ballistic gas masks that are good for viruses but also handy with chemical warfare stuff in case bad guys decide to make things worse. We have butt wipes for a year, paper towels for 6 months, a month of potassium iodine tablets for both of us (helpful with Alpha and Beta radiation in case shit goes nuclear and we aren’t in the Gamma range). Plus, all the random comforts like toothpaste, bath soap, dish soap, coffee, cigarettes, windex, laundry detergent, monistat, sex lube… for 4 months.
I just got night vision and some IR lasers and I’ve been having fun dialing them in. It’s good to see what’s coming in the dark. It’s better to have a laser, so what’s coming in the dark can’t see it mounted to your assault rifle and sighted in. We have a couple matching Hazmat suits for the wife and I on the way. This whole thing quickly made me realize what we don’t have, so it’s been a good exercise in prepping.
When did you start taking quarantine seriously? Was there a tipping point for you personally?
When Las Vegas shut down the strip, I knew this was serious. There is a lot of money lost by powerful people in that decision. I knew when that happened, I shouldn’t leave the house and better get locked down.
Did you stockpile anything unusual or particular — whether weed or lube or baby wipes or even a favorite snack?
The stuff I mentioned already and then also porn content. I’m really grateful I have enough videos to update both my membership sites until July.
How has your daily routine changed most since quarantine became real?
Apart from feeling sad for the people who are suffering, I’m really enjoying the crap out of it all. I used to struggle to wake up before noon and now I’m up at 9am every day excited to drink coffee, mediate, work out from home, tinker with gun stuff, work on house projects, hang out with my wife and cook stuff… The other day we installed a water purification thing in our kitchen sink. We never would have gotten around to that and it’s awesome. Today we are filming content together, then I’m going to make us spaghetti with a homemade meat sauce. Before, we might have had one night a week that we got to spend together at home with all the work and traveling. Now it’s like every day is one of those nice ones we used to crave.
Have you watched any good movies or read any good books since this started?
We rewatched the whole extended version of the Lord of the Rings movies, then got on West World.
How has the pandemic affected your porn career? Have you started embracing independent platforms like OnlyFans more? Are you camming?
My membership for my sites, ManUpFilms.com and SweetFemdom.com have gone up maybe 20% from normal. My Clips4sale sales have gone up a little. My Pornhub ad revenue has gone through the roof. I used to make about the equivalent of my day rate for performing every day from my content revenue streams. That’s pretty much doubled now. I never really got into Onlyfans before, but now I have time, so I’m starting from scratch. I have like 70 fans which is whatever, but you gotta start somewhere. I don’t really need Onlyfans for the money, but I figured “Why not?” since I have the spare time. For the past year or so, I’ve been focused on my own productions, so not having any paid bookings hasn’t affected me negatively really at all.
What’s the nicest thing a fan has said or done for you since the lockdowns started?
A couple fans have reached out on Instagram or Twitter DMs to say thank you for getting them through their hard time. That always makes me happy. They seem to be really into me wearing fishnets and lingerie and panties and stuff on my new Onlyfans account, too.
Are you masturbating more or less under quarantine? Are you using any particular sex toys or watching any performers that you’d like to shout-out?
I’m lucky to be quarantined with my hot wife so I’m masturbating way less. It’s kinda awkward to go hide somewhere in the house and jerk off instead of cumming on her or in her. Before, I really only jerked off when I was on the road in a hotel or if she was out of town. Every day, at least a few times a day, I get super grateful we are going through this together. She’s an amazing human and I just love being around her.
What’s the first thing you want to do out in the world once this shitshow (hopefully) ends?
I miss dinners with friends and strip clubs. When this is over, I want to go to a Brazilian steakhouse with a bunch of people and pig out, hit a casino, gamble, then maybe get a lapdance and cum in my pants.
Do you have any self-care practices that you think might benefit DykedDown readers?
Shower once a day. Try to put on clothes that aren’t pajamas by noon. Do pushups or something to make your blood flow at least every other day. Stretch every day. Stay off Facebook as much as possible, it’s so fucking negative on there — at least for me. Pick a few projects around your home to work on. I pray, so I do that everyday but not everyone’s into that one. It does work well for me though 🙂
Tiger King: yes or no?
Yes. I’m on the Tiger King’s side. I’m from Tampa, but I have no love for Carol. Like, she’s made it really far for a Nebraska Ave street hooker, you gotta give her some credit for that. But she betrayed her John that gave her everything and fed him to a tiger (which he paid for) and that’s just fucked up. It’s like if Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman murdered Richard Gere.
