Kurt Lockwood (born June 4, 1970) is an American pornographic actor & director,[1] model, and musician.

Life and career[edit]

Lockwood graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1992 with a B.A. in Theatre.[citation needed] There, he was a member of the improvisational theatre group Erasable Inc..[citation needed] He relocated to San Francisco from Baltimore with his band. A year later he moved to Los Angeles. Lockwood acted as an MTV host and was a raver gang member in a reenactment for the American television series America's Most Wanted.[citation needed] In addition, he had an assortment of small roles, including an uncredited role as a rollerblading snowman in the Steve Martin movie Mixed Nuts.[2] The roles earned him a Screen Actors Guild card but ultimately didn’t pan out into acting fame and fortune.

Lockwood returned to music by forming the band SexyXrist (pronounced Sexy Christ).[citation needed] In 1999, he toured as the guitarist for Dee Dee Ramone's band .[3] After doing some gonzo scenes for Luc Wylder and Alexandra Silk of Fallen Angels Productions, Lockwood returned to acting and music for the next two years. In addition to those passions, he also was involved in photography and writing, specifically penning a play based on the life of his idol, Kurt Cobain.[citation needed]

In 2002, Hustler magazine director Chris Wood offered him the starring role in his own line for Larry Flynt Digital in a now-defunct online series (www.trailertrash.com).[4] He performed sixty scenes as "Johnny Coxville", a parody of the Jackass star Johnny Knoxville. On this series he met well known star Ava Vincent and they began seriously dating. Vincent agreed to work only with him in boy/girl scenes which is why directors like Roy Karch and others agreed to hire him because they wanted his girlfriend Ava Vincent and she wouldn't work with any other male performers while they were together, thus launching Kurt's feature career due to A list performer/girlfriend Ava Vincent. In addition, he was featured on pornographic actor Seymore ButtsShowtime cable reality television show Family Business in six episodes in 2005 as well as being featured in pictorial layouts in Penthouse and Hustler.[5]

In 2005, Lockwood organized a benefit performance by his band for the Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation Detox Bed Program, which was held at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood and which raised $5000 to help adult industry performers who couldn't afford drug rehab treatment on their own.[6] Also in 2005, Sex-Z Pictures offered Lockwood the directing reins, as well as the lead, in his first full-length feature The Decline of Western Civilization, Part 69: The Porno Years, which was an homage to one of Penelope Spheeris' classic rock/metal documentaries, The Decline of Western Civilization II.[1]

Lockwood sings and plays guitar for his original punk/rock band Porn City Punx.[citation needed] In addition to his many scenes in other adult movies, Lockwood has continued to direct features for Bo Kenney and Sex-Z Pictures.[1] He took the helm with such titles as L.A. Vice, a takeoff on the 1980s television series Miami Vice, as well as Lords of Doggie Style Town, Thumbsuckers, Teen Cock Rockers 2, and The Real Boogie Nights, a parody of the 1997 film Boogie Nights, with Kurt assuming the "Dirk Diggler" role.[1]

In 2007, Lockwood retired from the porn industry and moved to Spain to be with his expecting girlfriend.[7] However, he briefly returned to the industry in 2008 and performed in bisexual and transsexual scenes.[8] Lockwood has lived in the Basque country in the South of France with his fiance and their son since 2009.[9]

In 2012, Lockwood returned to Los Angeles to resume his adult film career,[10] and, in August 2014, he relocated to Las Vegas to take advantage of the increased adult filming there.[11]

Following in the footsteps of other porn stars such as Alia Janine, Bree Olson, and Rebecca Bardoux in 2013 Lockwood tried his hand in stand-up comedy. [12] [13]
