Caveman Taylor’s Song Pick

It’s time for What’s Playing Wednesday. It’s also the anniversary of 9-11. Twelve years ago…right about now, I was in bed with the radio playing, but something in the DJ’s voice caught my attention. I stumbled out of bed to the living room and watched in horror as events unfolded.

Lots of times I’ll hear my parents talk about where they were when x happened. As I grow older, I realize those are sad milestones of our lives. Where were you when…Yeah, where were you? I always remember that morning when this date passes around and it saddens me to realize there’s so much hatred in the world.

I was going to pull this post this morning out of respect, then I realized that’s wrong and giving in. We’re meant to live our lives and if listening to music shared by a handsome man is the way we live, so be it. Yes, honor those who were lost twelve years ago, remember and give thanks to the emergency personnel who risked their lives trying to save others, and give thanks to those who fight to keep us safe.

And enjoy some music by Caveman Taylor.

Normally I have themes, but with RomantiCon coming up, I decided to hand the music controls over to some of the cavemen. If you’ve been to the Ellora’s Cave conference, you know just how much fun it is hanging with these guys. They’re all really awesome guys with a great sense of humor. They’re also hot as hell, but y’all already know that from past Fantasy Man Friday Interviews.

But I find knowing what people listen to is probably a better way to get to know them than anything else. By now, most of you probably know I have musical ADD. I have a tough exterior with a sappy, sentimental center. That’s what you’ve probably learned from my music choices over the past…er, 4 years?

So what will we learn from today’s Caveman? Oh, did I mention it’s Taylor? Sexy, funny Caveman Taylor who also co-wrote the Take It Off  books? Just in case you don’t remember him, this is Taylor:

Hehe. Sorry. Ahem.

So Taylor, when I asked what song he was digging on lately, chose Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”. Hm, I wonder what exactly that means? I’ll be honest, I’d never heard this song until Taylor mentioned it. Not really my speed, but it’s kind of groovy, yeah? Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think! And be sure to check out Taylor on Facebook!

Interview with Caveman Taylor

Hey y’all, I’m back again with another interview with one of Ellora’s Cave’s delectable cover models. This week I have Caveman Taylor on the blog. This was my first phone interview and I’ll admit I spent most of the interview trying not to say embarrassing things. I didn’t quite manage as you’ll see, but it was fun and Taylor definitely kept me on my toes. I did not record this interview *cough* so I had to go by my own keyboarding skillz and memory. I hope I was able to capture Taylor’s open and funny personality.

He might, might stop by to answer questions, so if you see something I failed to ask him, be sure to leave it in the comments and hopefully he’ll be able to respond.

Danica: Have you ever read one of the books you’ve been a cover model for?
Taylor:  I read WyndRiver Sinner and really liked it.
Danica: What did you think of it?
Taylor: They’re more graphic than I thought they would be. I didn’t know anybody was into that.
Danica: You have no idea.

Danica: Do you have a favorite band? Is there a band you’ve always wanted to see live but haven’t?
Taylor: The Black Keys. They were in concert in Dallas and we had to do a promo so I missed because I had to go back to the club. I heard The Black Keys when they first began were offered like $300,000 to put one of their songs in a mayonnaise commercial but they turned it down because they didn’t want people to think they sold out.
Danica: If someone offered you $300,000 to smear mayonnaise all over your body in a commercial, would you do it?
Taylor: Of course I would!
Danica: I’ll start saving my pennies now…

Danica: What’s the one place in the world you’d love to visit and why?
Taylor: I always wanted to go to California and go surfing, but I was too busy. Hopefully next year or whenever. I’ve been nearly everywhere else.

Danica: What do you have going on right now? Do you have any upcoming appearances? If so, when, where and will there be video? Just joking about that last one. Sort of. Ahem.
Taylor: We’re gonna be on ABC News, an everyday life kind of thing. They filmed me boxing at the gym and things like that. And Fox News is going to be interviewing us again soon. I don’t have any dates for those yet.

Danica: How many hours do you spend in the gym?
Taylor: Here’s the thing. I like to work out and I enjoy it, but I don’t like to work out for a long time. I split it up three days on, one day off, then two days on and one day off an hour each day.
Danica: Out of curiosity, what’s your calorie intake?
Taylor: I like to eat a lot. I don’t know how many calories I take in but it’s got to be maybe 3000 calories a day. I try to splurge every day. But we have a photo shoot coming up so I’ve been dieting lately.
Danica: We both agreed dieting sucks.

Danica: What do you think is your best feature?
Taylor: Besides my personality? I get more compliments on my ass. I remember when I was a kid and I was going to school, the high school girls would make me stand up in the middle of the school bus to check out my ass.

Danica: What’s your favorite kink?
Taylor: I like being blindfolded and surprised. I don’t mind a girl being a little rough. Most girls like to try to get me to do that to them, and I’ll do it, you know, whatever they want, but I kind of like the surprise of not knowing what’s going on. I would like to be tied up, blindfolded and ravished, taken advantage of, used like sex doll.
Danica: I swear I did not put any words in his mouth. He was trying to be a gentleman.

Danica: Do you have any favorite embarrassing or funny moments from a photo shoot?
Taylor I was in Playgirl magazine a couple of times. The first was September 2003, two photo shoots and I was moving around a lot at the time so I don’t know the exact date on the second one.
Danica: If someone finds a copy of these magazines, would you be willing to sign them?
Taylor:  Sure.
Danica: Now for your most awkward moment in a photo shoot.
Taylor: For one of my Playgirl magazine shoots, I was supposed to be a cowboy, so I was in a barn and there were horses in the stalls. There were people all over the place and I was like trying to get it hard, jerking off in front of 10 people. As soon as I would get kind of hard this one horse would reach out and try to bite my shoulder.
Danica: Was the horse jealous?
TaylorTotally, LOL. I embarrassed the horse.

Danica:  Are you a breast or a butt man?
Taylor: Generally I like a big nice ass, but not opposed to big boobs.

Danica: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done as a model?
Taylor: Most of the crazy sex stuff is in the 2nd book. I need to think about this.
Danica: FYI, I’m blushing at this point because he found it easier to remember crazy sex things than what crazy things he did as a model. Seriously, he said “Hm, let me get off the sex thing and get back to you on this.”

Danica: What’s your favorite color?
Taylor: I’m actually color blind, but I love blue. Like the Mustang Sapphire Blue.

Danica: Favorite food?
Taylor: Steak, medium rare

Danica: Do you prefer winter or summer?
Taylor: I like Autumn
Danica: Being from the south, I’m in total agreement with him here. Autumn, when we get it, rocks.

Danica: What’s one movie you can watch over and over?
Taylor: Casino Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci are awesome together. It’s such good guy movie.

Danica: Do you prefer mountains or beaches?
Taylor: I do like the beach.

Danica: Pets? What kind?
Taylor: No pets, I work so much it’s hard for me to be home enough.

Danica: Boxers, briefs, commando?
Taylor: I like boxer briefs cause with my legs my hamstrings rub together. I like a little material there.
Danica: I have the same problem, but not because my legs are muscular.

Danica: Is there anything about yourself you feel enough people don’t know? Taylor: I like living life to the fullest. I like being a free spirit. My motto is “if it feels good, do it.”

They’re Taking It Off

Hey y’all, well it’s finally here, the interview you’ve all been waiting for. Yup, we have Taylor Cole and Justin Alan Whitfield in the house talking about their debut release, Take It Off! The Naked Truth About Male Strippers.

Now, if you haven’t had a chance to read the book yet, some of these questions might sound a little coarse and way out of left field. However, if you’ve read the guys’ book, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about here. Also, feel free to leave comments or questions. The guys will hopefully have time to stop by and respond.

Justin

Danica: Who had the idea of writing Take It Off? Was it something y’all thought of together, or always wanted to do?
Justin: Both of us had been wanting to write a book for years! I moved to Houston to work at the Houston Labare and Taylor stayed in Dallas working at the Dallas Labare. Every few months, we would see each other to do roadshows that I booked and we would share stories. This made us think, “our stories are hilarious! We gotta write a book!” Not until I saw the trailer months before magic mike came out to theaters, did I know we had to act soon! I wasn’t part of Ellora’s Cave yet but Taylor was, so I got him to pitch our book to Susan Edwards and we got our first contract! Susan didn’t seem interested at first but called Taylor a few days later and had a contract for us. She thought we would need a ghost writer but was happily suprised that we could write and wanted to keep our voice in the book.
Taylor: We wrote it together. We talked about doing it for years.

Danica: What was the best part of writing this book? The fame, the fortune…the chance to revisit your favorite conquests?
Justin: The chance to mark off “write a book” on our bucket list! Also, making friends with all of the Elloras cave authors.
Taylor: Remembering all the fun times and adventures I had.

Danica: Okay, what’s the deal with tea bagging the new guy? Cause, correct me if I’m wrong, but women don’t go around vag bagging people. Unless that’s something new and the Cabal are planning to add this to the induction ceremony… 
Taylor: I would never do that to anyone. That’s a story one of the old dancers always told us about.
Justin: We wish women would! Sounds like a good ritual!!!! Btw: Taylor and I have never tea bagged anyone!
Or got tea bagged!

Taylor

Danica: How has the response been from readers so far? Reviews can be harsh and a bit of a pain in the ass. Do you even bother reading them?
Justin: Yes, so far we have gotten really good reviews and feedback. I love reading a review that shows the reader didn’t want to read or didn’t know what to expect and ended up loving the book!
Taylor: I love reading the reviews. So far they have all been positive.

Danica: The scene with the toilet paper in the dancer’s thong nearly killed me. Does that kind of thing stay with a dancer the next time they perform? How do you come back from something like that?
Taylor: That didn’t happen to me, but I’m sure if the guy laughed it off it wouldn’t be that big a deal.
Justin: It happened and the women never even  said anything to me. I still made money! I was embarrassed though!

Danica: Of the two of you, who’s the better storyteller?
Taylor: I’m better at telling it in person, but he’s better at writing it down.
Justin: Taylor has the funniest story telling ability, he just has to be in the right mood to tell them, though. I write more of the stuff but Taylor adds much of the humor. We are like yin and yang.

Justin on the left, Taylor on the right

These questions come from one of your fans 😉

Danica: How much is too much to share. How much are you willing to discuss with readers who are genuinely interested? Tell all baby!
Justin: My wife had to take a deep breath on some parts of the first book but that’s why I love her! She allows me to be me!
Taylor: I’m pretty much an open book. I didn’t really hold anything back.

Danica: What type of woman is the one type you’d never go for?
Taylor: Snobby women. They seem negative to me and I like to be around positive people.
Justin: Sloppy. I love a woman who knows how to carry herself.

Danica: How did you get into the Caveman Club? (And thank God y’all did.. Her words, not mine although I agree.)
Justin: Patty came to my bar in Houston 7 years ago to audition cavemen. I was the link they needed to sign all the Labare guys. Reason why most of us come from Texas. I declined to model then due to my 80 hours a week to get my bar up and running. However, I always regretted not being a caveman! I wanted to be on a book cover badly. Another bucket list! Things workout well for me, and now I have my goal and will be a caveman until they say no more! Lol!
Taylor: One of the choreographers asked me and Angelo fi we would be interested in it and we agreed and were so glad we did.

Danica: Does it ever get old, getting ogled? How do you get over having a “meh” day and turn it on for the stage?
Taylor: It never gets old. I love the attention!
Justin: It does get old but you miss it too! That’s why I retired from Labare in ’05 but continue to this day doing roadshows at clubs and casinos. It’s fun being sexy! My normal life, I am anything but! Mean boss is what I get to be! Lol!

Now it’s your turn, my friends. These guys are amazingly blunt and ready to tell you like it is. Of course, if you haven’t picked up Take It Off! The Truth About Male Strippers, you should do that. Like now 🙂
