What's your idea of good foreplay? Great foreplay makes for great sex. A wet blow job is the ultimate turn on as it gets it hard as all hell and ready for some serious pumping. Love all the great things foreplay can involve but giving her oral sex has been the winner with me. Love it!

You have a bunch of sexy tats. What part of a woman's body do your think tattoos look best? I am a huge fan of tattoos on women in the right places of course. I love the lower abdominal area, anklet tattoos rock and the back of the neck I think is sexy. Full sleeves look good on the right girl and can be very hot!
 
What do you consider your greatest achievement to date? Good one, you are asking my greatest achievement to date. Honestly, I have to say the love and support from people all over the globe. I am truly humbled.




 What song best describes you? Song that best describes me is.....Don't Stop Believin' by Journey
 
 

John Quinlan who was a professional wrestler at one time has graced a bunch of covers of HOT HOT books! This cover is his favorite because he's from Boston and it's the skyline of his hometown there.

Getting to know Travis
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you recognized on the street?

 
Actually not very often outside of the Midwest. Once in a while out on the west coast someone will recognize me or my work. With my personality, I am completely ok with not being recognized everywhere I go. I know that one day that kind of notoriety may come, and I have very clear boundaries on what is public and what I would like to keep private. Either way I am extremely thankful and humbled every time someone recognizes and appreciates my work. 


 Do you have any hidden talents?

Hidden talents... Hmm. I wish I could sing but that is definitely not the case. I do love to draw but I have kinda gotten away from it over the past couple years. Other than that, I can also hold my own on a skateboard. Not a lot of people know that, and it's kinda weird to see a 6'5 person on a skateboard but I got skills... By skills I mean I can ride without falling off and do a couple basic tricks ;)
 
 
 
 
 


 

 

What advice do you have for others aspiring to get into modeling and entertainment?

 
The most important advice I could give is to learn about the industry from a business perspective. Know which lane(s) you fit in or are trying to pursue and then hustle relentlessly. There are beautiful people everywhere. It takes a lot of hard work and thick skin. 
What crazy activity do you dream of doing?     
 I am pretty rated PG when it comes to extreme activities. Never been sky diving, deep sea diving etc. I would actually love to go on a safari in Africa. (As long as there is someone right next to me with a huge gun in case a lion gets a bright idea.)
 
 
 


 

 

What activities do you enjoy doing outside?

I'm from Iowa, so I'm a country boy at heart. With that said, I love being outside. Camping and fishing are my favorite things to do. I also love spending time with my family and playing sports with my son. Exercise is a big part of my life and becomes therapeutic for me so I love to stay active as much as possible




 

Travis Lee Ferguson Bio

On the 26th day of September, 1985, on the East side of Waterloo, Iowa, the world welcomed a child that would one day grow to inspire and change the lives of many, by the name of Travis Lee Naaman Ferguson.  While still on his quest to achieve this dream, he has made remarkable strides, gaining widespread attention from producers, photographers, and designers throughout the world.  Travis is someone who is very ambitious and hungry for knowledge, while maintaining focus on keeping himself grounded and standing for what he believes in.
 
 
Growing up with dreams of becoming an elite athlete, he began to live a life revolving around fitness and health at a very young age.  Travis also developed a passion and dream of becoming an actor, but due to a lack of opportunities in Iowa, he focused on athletics.  Excelling in football, basketball, and track, Travis has essentially spent his whole life turning his body into a machine.  This hard work paid off after his sophomore year of high school when receiving a full ride scholarship from Iowa State University to play football.  While there, as a student athlete, he managed to get his degree in sociology, graduating in 2009. 
 
 
 
While still in college, Travis was blessed with an opportunity to follow his dreams of becoming a model/ actor, when approached by a local modeling agency.  Travis began building his portfolio by booking photo shoots with local photographers and learning to perfect his craft as a new model.  Still focusing on school and football at the time, his availability was very limited. 
 
Also, while in college, Travis welcomed the most influential part of his life, a baby boy.  As a new father, Travis had a sense of urgency to fulfill his dreams and set an example to his son on how to follow his goals relentlessly.  The birth of his son taught Travis the importance of managing his priorities and staying grounded to what he believes in, which has propelled his career to new heights in this fast moving industry.
 
Immediately after his graduation from Iowa State, he was able to kick his career into full throttle, by booking shoots throughout the entire country, working with over 100 photographers, designers, and producers.  Travis has also had the opportunity to begin growing his acting career by taking acting classes, and being casted in numerous commercials, including a lead role in an advertisement for Veridian Credit Union in 2012.  Travis has also expanded even further into radio voice overs, and motivational speaking, to create even more diversity in his portfolio.  While print and runway modeling consume the majority of his experience, Travis is slowly breaking ground into the acting industry, and steadily looking for other opportunities.

 
Travis’ experience has caught the attention of a very loyal fan base that has supported and followed his career extremely closely.  Travis says that his fans are the reason that he does what he does, and loves to get to know and interact with the people that have gotten him so far in this business.  Travis is constantly finding new ways to show his appreciation to his supporters through social media, appearances, and other events.

 
Travis’ physique has graced the cover of Sensual Horizon, a romance novel by well known author Langston John Blaze, along with the urban fiction novel cover Never Again, No More by author, Untamed. He has also been featured in publications, such as Seriously Sensual, Fashion Affair Magazine,  Juice Magazine, Tightrope Magazine, Underground Joyride, Diamond Lifestyles, and Gloss Magazine Online along with other publications.  Adding to his extremely lengthy resume as a known print model, Travis has begun to break into the runway market nationwide.  He has recently blazed the runways as a featured celebrity model for numerous runway projects, and recently the XY runway show, and iCandy 2 in Chicago IL, both produced by the legendary Blake Martin.
 
In addition to molding himself into a nationally known entertainer, Travis has begun using his teaching skills to help new and aspiring models follow their dream.  Travis has worked with numerous aspiring models to learn the business side of the industry, and start or add to their portfolio with amazing images.
 
Travis Lee Ferguson is becoming more and more a hot commodity in the fashion/ modeling world.  Each day, he is making progress toward maximizing his full potential, gaining experience in print modeling, runway, editorial, event hosting, and acting.  Traveling from coast to coast, Travis Lee Ferguson is becoming a familiar name, and face in the entertainment industry!

Model My Cover Spotlight: DeLonn Donovan



Not Another Damn Blog will spotlight models on Mondays, premiering with DeLonn Donovan.  I'm lucky enough to spotlight the models here, too! Meanwhile, show the blog some love. https://www.facebook.com/NotADamnBlog

Dirty dreams, beautiful people.                                       Kat


Getting to know DeLonn:


    1.)    How did you get your start in modeling?  I started out as an actor at 14. I had my first professional role at 15 in a touring production. My high school theater teacher suggested that I consider modeling and pointed me in the right direction. My first professional job was at 16 for Ares Sports wear and it is really funny that they still use those pictures in their catalog.

 
 
 
 

      
 
 
 
 2.)    What is your favorite romantic getaway? My favorite getaway would be anywhere with a beach, sun and warm water. I would love to lay in the sand with that special woman and sip tropical drinks by crystal clear blue water...

 


 
 
 
 
      
 
 
 
 
 
 
       3.)    What do you enjoy eating? I like eating lots of different things from Italian, to Cuban, to Mexican. I do tend to like it hot and spicy, you know...full of flavor.

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 



 
    



     4.)    Where do you see yourself in 10 years' time? As the parent of a 14 year old, wow is that even possible! But no, really, I want to see my clothing line running well and being a leader in men's fashion, I want to be modeling and acting full time and be able to give back and mentor kids from backgrounds like mine.

 


 
    
 
 
   

       5.)    Do you prefer to work alone or with someone? Well, of course I prefer doing anything with another person. No one likes to work alone as much as they like to work with another. When the partnership is right and you get in sync with each other you can flow and ride the waves of thought and inspiration, it is a high like no other when you are with the right person. It is earth shaking and afterward, you're never the same.
