Weezy Koffman learns more about Antonio’s life, career, and porn site
By Weezy Koffman For Cybersocket
Raised and educated in Puerto Rico, Antonio Biaggi was working as a historical tour guide when he was first scouted by a photographer and asked to do some modeling. That led to a successful sideline as a print model. Though successful as a tour guide and a model, Antonio was looking for new challenges. After talking to a porn producer, Antonio was referred to RagingStallion.comand was eventually signed to a contract. He appeared in dozens of successful videos and eventually moved to San Francisco. During this time he also opened his own store in San Francisco called Eco-Boutique and launched a separate cake business. When his Raging Stallion contract concluded, Antonio was scouted by TreasureIslandMedia.com and then went on to found his own website at BiaggiVideos.com. Today Antonio spends most of his time creating original content and managing his website. But this month we had a chance to learn a little bit more about Antonio’s life and work. For additional information you can follow Antonio on Twitter, on Facebook, and at Blogspot.Your favorite porn project so far?
My fave was Raging Stallion’s To the Last Man because it was the biggest production I had ever done and it was more like a Hollywood movie.
Why did you decide to start your own website?
People had been asking me when I was going to do something on my own, which led to the creation of BiaggiVideos.com. The site is doing well and I like being able to choose the guys. It’s more creative for me.
Do you get much fan mail?
Yes, I get about 50 to 100 a day. I respond to as many as I can.
Do fans ever recognize you in public?
Yes, they do and it’s fun. I get people following me in the streets, and in restaurants people will sometimes write “Love you, Antonio” on their phone. Some people ask for photos, too. It’s fun.
Something most people don’t know about you?
I’m very serious, but I’m also a nice and friendly guy. When I don’t know someone, I won’t smile at first – so people might think I’m a bitch or that I don’t like them. But I’m just very cautious. I study people before I warm up to them.
Most unusual sex spots?
In a police car, in an airplane, and on the roof of a church in Greece.
Your favorite hobbies?
I’ve done Capoeira, boxing, and dancing. I also do a lot of gardening and I work out. I enjoy cooking, too. Food is my passion.
Do you have any pets?
I have a dog named Harper who I adopted from an animal rescue, through a friend who was working there at the time. Harper was in line to be put to sleep because he had been there too long. He was nine years old, so people said he was too old. I brought him home and now he’s 14 going on 15.
What was it like growing up in Puerto Rico? Do you have many fans there?
Puerto Rico was great and I have a great family. I went to a private Catholic school and I had a lot of friends. When I go to Puerto Rico now it’s crazy. When people spotted me at the last Gay Pride, I couldn’t even walk. My BF got mad because we’d have 20 or 30 people taking photos. Then we’d walk another five steps and there would be 5 or 10 more people who wanted photos. My friends had to surround me so that I could walk.
Any funny behind-the-scenes stories from porn shoots?
There are so many. Once we were doing a fisting scene with a model suspended in the air by chains and he fainted while my hand was up his ass. Fainting made his ass tighten and I couldn’t get my hand out. The entire crew was trying to get him down and trying to get my hand out at the same time. It was scary, but in the end he was OK so now it’s funny. I kept thinking, what will happen if my hand is still up there when the ambulance arrives?

How did you first start working with Raging Stallion?
A producer referred me to Michael Brandon at Raging Stallion. Michael hired me for my first shoot and gave me my start in the industry. I’m really thankful that he gave me that opportunity.
How did you get involved with Treasure Island Media?
They contacted me about doing my first bareback videos. They made a good offer, so I agreed.
When did you move from Puerto Rico to Florida?
The first time I moved to Miami was in 2005, for one year. Then I moved to Fort Lauderdale 4 years ago.
Do your parents approve of your adult work?
My parents support everything that I do. So yes, they love and agree with what I do.
Any brothers or sisters?
I have one brother, a veteran who served in Iraq. I’m really proud of him.
Any future plans for Biaggi Videos that you can talk about?
Yes, but it’s top secret for now. There’s a lot of stuff coming up, so you’ll definitely be seeing more of Biaggi for a long time.
Best thing about being a porn star?
It’s fun. I get to fuck lots of hot men and cross things off on my sexual Bucket list.
Some people hate you just because you’re in the industry, and some people don’t take you seriously – but I don’t care about that.
Do fans ever get starstruck by porn stars?
Yes, many do – and for some reason many people also get intimidated.
Do your fans ever have boundary issues?
It depends on the environment. If it’s a show, they might touch, sure. But out on the street they are more respectful.
What other jobs have you tried in the past?
I was a historical tour guide and I managed a tour company for Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Holland America cruise ships. I’ve loved history ever since I was a kid. The historical tours were about Puerto Rico. I also had my own store called Eco Boutique, I owned a cake business, and I worked as a bus driver for a tour company in Puerto Rico.
What are your long-terms dreams and aspirations?
I want to open a business in Fort Lauderdale. But it’s a surprise, so I don’t want to talk about it yet.
What traits attract you to someone?
I like a humble person who is down to earth. I like skinny to muscular guys, not too big. I also like older men with gray or black hair – and I love redheads. The main physical things I like are nice legs and a nice ass. I don’t care about abs or a big chest.
Any social or political issues that you feel strongly about?
Yes, always. I have family in politics in Puerto Rico so I guess it’s part of my life somehow. I do love to cause controversy with some of my ideas. I like to make people think and push their buttons.
Do you watch much TV?
I like the Nat Geo channel, news (least of all Fox News), Comedy Central, John Stuart, and The Colbert Report. And yes, my guilty pleasure is The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Who doesn’t like to see rich women being trashy? And I love fashion, so Project Runway too, and cooking shows.
What did you dream of being when you were a kid?
A fashion designer, an architect, or a doctor.
Did you ever do anything as a kid that got you into trouble?
Not really. Only fights with my brother. We did once break a TV and a lamp on the same day, but that was as far as we ever went.
What’s a typical day like for you?
Lots of work – editing, contacting models, responding to emails, going to the gym, cooking, and looking for models on different sites.
What scares you?
Birds. [Laughs] Nothing really scares me.
What life lessons have you learned during recent years?
Don’t pay attention to the haters on social media. It’s better to have less friends, but good ones. Also, try to be closer to the people you love and care about. I love helping people, and also helping animals at animal rescues, since I’ve been very blessed.
