Boston’s hometown stud returns for Manhunt X Tour.
Boston-raised Jesse Jackman stands 6’1″ tall and is 235 pounds of solid muscle. A true jock and Red Sox fan, Jackman played ice hockey for over twenty years and Rugby for three. He also confesses to being an insatiable geek, always tinkering with his smartphone or playing with the latest tech gadget.
Having spent the last few years traveling the world and living life to its fullest as a Titan Man, Jackman’s excited to make his hometown return on Nov. 10. He will headline Manhunt’s tenth anniversary celebration, The Manhunt X Tour, at the House of Blues.
Out at Night: What part of Boston did you grow up in?
Jesse Jackman: Newton. Garden City, baby!
OAN: Growing up, did you always know you were gay?
JJ: Not exactly. I always felt I was different somehow, but I never really put my finger on it until high school. Although dressing up as a princess for Halloween in the fifth grade was probably a pretty good indication.
OAN: Were you always the big boy in school?
JJ: Yes, if by big you mean fat. I hit 100 pounds at age 8! I was the prototypical fat kid. Overweight, always picked last at sports.
OAN: Were you bullied?
JJ: Not really. I guess I was lucky. I got teased a little for being fat, but in retrospect it really wasn’t all that bad.
OAN: When did you come out?
JJ: I didn’t come out until I was 23. Boston was a warm and supportive environment to come out in.
OAN: What will it be like to make your hometown return on the Manhunt X Tour?
JJ: Amazing. I’m very proud of the work I’ve been doing with Titan Men and I can’t wait to share it with my hometown friends!
OAN: Has Boston been supportive of your adult film career?
JJ: Mostly, although I think some of my friends have trouble wrapping their heads around it. We New Englanders tend to be a little on the conservative side.
OAN: What kind of show will you put on at Manhunt X?
JJ: That depends. Does the House of Blues have a back room now?
OAN: Are you single?
JJ: I am. While I know there’s a place in my heart for a certain special someone, for now I’m connecting with friends, doing a bit of traveling, and having lots of fun. There’s no shame in being single.
OAN: What your most memorable Manhunt hook-up?
JJ: Ten years ago I hooked up on Manhunt with a guy in my neighborhood. Today, he’s my best friend. We’re inseparable.
OAN: Finish this sentence: The best thing about Boston is...
JJ: The accent. It’s pissah!
