Ricky Martinez (born October 1, 1978 in the Dominican Republic) is a Dominican pornographic film actor,[1] best known to perform autofellatio.[2] He defines himself as straight, but he has performed in many gay-themed pornographic movies, such as BuckleRoos (Part 1), Trunks and Anaconda.[2] Mr. Anaconda is a stage name that he uses.[1][3]

Martinez did movies, personal appearances and photo shoots from 2004 to 2012, and the Internet Adult Film Database lists him in 36 titles but this is not a complete list.[1] Martinez was the 2004 Grabby Award winner for "Hottest cum shot", the 2005 GayVN Awards winner for "Best solo" in BuckleRoos from Buckshot Productions.[4][5]

Martinez was discovered in a strip show at a gay bar in New York City, and he was offered a gay pornography job in magazines and videos by Big City.[2] Because it was gay-focussed, he turned it down.[2] After a few months, he called the video producer back, and he negotiated what he would do in print and on camera.[2] Big City has discovered or promoted many of the "most popular and successful black and Latino stars."[6] Martinez made his first film, Anaconda, for Big City Video, and he was soon being courted for other studios including Channel 1 Releasing, Hot House and Colt Studios.[2] He made the cover of Latin Inches in 2004, and, from there, "his career took off and the money started to roll in."[2]

Martinez has been upfront with his fans that he is gay for pay in his work only, but he appreciates the opportunities to travel the world and work with great people.[2] He has worked for most of the major California gay porn companies, which is the hub of the industry.[6]
