Kurt Lockwood (born June 4, 1970 in Baltimore, Maryland) is an American pornographic actor, model, and musician.

Life and career[edit]

Born Steven Trevor Pelekakis, Lockwood graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1992 with a B.A. in Theatre. There, he was a member of the improvisational theatre group Erasable Inc.. 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. In addition, he had an assortment of small roles, including an uncredited role as a rollerblading snowman in the Steve Martin movie Mixed Nuts. 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). In 1999, he toured as the guitarist for Dee Dee Ramone's band .[1] After doing some gonzo scenes for Luc Wylder and Alexandra Silk of Fallen Angels Productions that year Kurt returned to acting and music for the next two years. In addition to those passions, he also did photography and writing, specifically penning a play based on the life of his idol, Kurt Cobain.

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.[2] He performed sixty scenes as Johnny Coxville, a parody of the Jackass star Johnny Knoxville. This led to Roy Karch asking Lockwood to perform in his features and his career in adult film was off and running.[3] Since 2002 Kurt has been in close to 1400 scenes with various female adult film stars, both on film/tape and on the internet. 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 (magazine) and Hustler.[4]

Lockwood sings and plays guitar for his original punk/rock band Porn City Punx. In addition to his many scenes in other adult movies, Kurt has continued to direct features for Bo Kenney and Sex-Z Pictures. He took the helm with such titles as L.A.

In 2007, Lockwood retired from the porn industry and moved to Spain to be with his expecting girlfriend.[6] However, he briefly returned to the industry in 2008 and performed in bisexual and transsexual scenes.[7] Lockwood currently lives in the Basque country in the South of France with his fiance and their son since 2009.[8] As of 2012, Lockwood has returned to Los Angeles to resume his adult film career.
