Bravotv.com: You got engaged! Were you shocked? Tell us everything!
DB: I'm engaged!!! It was so unexpected. We had never really even talked seriously about getting married, so it was very much a surprise. Trevor says it took me being away from him during charter season to realize how much he needed me in his life. The proposal way very impromptu. I was blown away. 

Bravotv.com: Did you two get married yet? 
DB: We have not gotten married yet; we had decided early on that we would not begin the wedding planning until Proposition 8 was overturned. Now that it has been, wedding bells are in the future. Trevor's dream wedding is in Boston Harbour, and we'll certainly keep our friends, fans, and followers informed. 

Bravotv.com: You reveal that you and your fiance met doing pornographic film. Was that hard for you to tell your crewmates? Do you have any regrets? How did they react? How do people usually react?
DB: We actually first met during pre-production of my first feature independent film, Bite Marks. I had already been cast, and I was helping with the readings for the other principle roles. Trevor was working as the film's Assistant Director. This was my first "mainstream" project following my short stint in the adult industry. and Trevor never (really) left the adult industry.  

I'm certainly not proud of the fact that I worked in adult films, but I'm not ashamed of it either, which makes it significantly easier to communicate to new peers. I try not to go through life with regrets. People make decisions and they aren't always good ones. It's what we learn from those choices that matters in the end.  

Bravotv.com: The guys take you up on your joke offer to go to a strip club, but you and Eddie were the ones getting hit on. Tell us what it was like at the strip club.
DB: I see nothing wrong with single guys going to a strip club for a fun evening out, but these guys were actually looking to hook up with girls for the evening. I mean one would think that common sense would dictate that strippers are not interested in sleeping with you. They are mysterious dancers, dancers for money, but they don't really do what you want them to do. They are there for your viewing entertainment only. A strip club was a waste of time if these guys were looking to "score," especially when your wingmen are Eddie and me! I mean I can only say I'm gay so many times. Those girls took that as a challenge.  

The strip club was... interesting. I don't see naked women often, but when I do Im always a little mystified, curious, and frightened. Thank God I've got Trevor!
