Born and raised in Southern Utah on a 1,200-acre farm, adult star Cavin Knight always had an interest in the adult film industry, but growing up he wanted to be a magician. Today, Cavin is a magician, but his magic wand is his dick and instead of making rabbits disappear, he makes his clothes disappear.
He originally started out modeling and, after ten years, he reached a point where he wanted to step up his exhibitionistic interests. He was always interested in porn and enjoyed watching it and decided he would give it a go. It seemed like the perfect next step from modeling. Always in shape, Cavin worked even harder to sculpt his physique.
In August of 1999, Cavin moved to San Diego and attended San Diego State University. However, when he came out to his parents, he was cut off. He worked hard to make it on his own and when he felt a little more stable, Cavin enrolled at the University of California, San Diego. He eventually received his certification as a bookkeeper, as well as a Professional Certificate in Business Administration with an emphasis on Human Resources. Currently, he is the Chief Administrative Officer for a Southern California company, overseeing operations, accounting, information technologies, and human resources.
Cavin, like many others in the porn industry, proves that there is more to him than the general perception. “There are many smart, funny, kind, honest, genuine and fun people in the industry,” says Cavin. “I think sometimes people have the impression that it’s all shady, seedy, dark people but that has not been my experience at all. I have met some people who I genuinely like and who I now consider good friends. I do believe people attract those who have similar energies, if you will, and I believe I’m a good, happy, well-rounded person so I suppose that’s why I’ve met such great people.”
Cavin maintains his daytime job because his philosophy is that no porn actor should expect to make a permanent living solely in the porn industry. He believes that performers need to have diverse interests and talents because no one lasts forever in the industry.
Simply enough, Cavin got into the industry by going online to the websites of companies who had content that he liked and completed the online applications to model. He quickly heard back from most of them so it was just a matter of which was filming first and had a role for him. He applied with most major studios in August of 2010 and by September of 2010, Cavin was on a Mustang Studios set with Erik Rhodes directing.
To date, Cavin has worked with Mustang Studios, Channel 1 Releasing, Cocksure Men, Lucas Entertainment, Hot House Entertainment, Raging Stallion Studios, Titan Men, and Hard Friction.
Inspiration for Cavin comes from many different places and in many different forms. In the world, he loves people who have risen above adversity to achieve great things, loves the beauty in architecture, art, dance, nature and a well-proportioned body.
Sexually, he is one-hundred percent versatile. “I like to say I’m a verbal, aggressive top and an eager, power bottom,” says Cavin. For Cavin, it really depends on the partner(s) and chemistry involved. As a top, Cavin’s favorite position is doggy style with his hands on their hips, thrusting them onto his cock. When he is the bottom, Cavin prefers being on his back with his legs wrapped around the fuckers’ waist. As long as there is lots of body contact, he is satisfied.
One person that Cavin has always respected and would like to work with is Francesco D’Macho. His ultimate sexual fantasy is to be strapped into a sling in a dimly-lit dungeon with a dozen or so smoking hot, muscular guys surrounding him and taking turns on his ass and pleasuring his body.
One of the many things that Cavin can credit to the porn industry is his attitude towards sex and sexuality. In the past, he had the same usual labels (gay, bi, straight, etc.) associated with people that most everyone has, but he’s learned that sexuality truly is more in the grays than in the black’s and white’s. “There are plenty of ‘straight’ guys in porn who still enjoy the physical act of sex with another guy,” says Cavin. “Sex is all about what feels good to you and what turns you on, it doesn’t define what your sexuality is.”
Cavin’s aspirations are to continue to expand the type of work he does and have a diverse portfolio of styles, studios, and scene partners. When asked about the day he retires from the porn industry, Cavin states that he would like to look back on his career and think that his career was exactly as he envisioned it. He also states that he would like to feel that he had a healthy body of work and that his fans and followers associate him and his work as not only entertainment, but also as art.
One goal that Cavin would love to achieve is to make a workout video. However, unlike most, his would be a naked exercise video! To him (and certainly others), the gym and hot bodies are such a turn-on that he thinks it would be not only informative, but also hot!
When Cavin is not at work, he can be found sculpting his 5’7”, 170-pound physique in the gym. He constantly challenges his body and routinely changes up workout regimens. Cavin considers himself a melting pot of oxymoronic diverse interests, which include traveling, architecture, road trips, working out, great food & wine, opera, card/board games, dance, film and circuit parties. He also considers himself a tech “nerd.”
Cavin currently resides in San Diego, California with his two cats – Winston and Kona.
