Travel Stories: Fostter Riviera — The First Portuguese Gay Porn Star

Fosster Riviera at Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris.

Fostter Riviera is proud to claim the title of being the first Portuguese gay porn star. It’s a claim that’s not particularly easy to fact-check, but Riviera is certainly one of the most high-profile and prolific performers on the gay porn scene at the moment.

We recently caught up with Fostter Riviera to swap travel stories:
 
Where has been your best vacation?

Since I was a child I’ve been going to Benidorm in Spain. I love spending time there with my family.
 
Where has been your worst vacation?

I don’t have a worst vacation — I always try and take the best from every trip, and if the place is not like what I was expecting, then I’ll find a way. Finding some sex dates can always make any vacation better.
 
What has been your most romantic trip?

Most romantic trip was actually with my best friend Miguel Agramonte — he’s writing a biography of me. We visited Paris, the city of love.
 
Would you avoid any specific countries?

Yes, I reject travelling to countries where my integrity as a human being is not respected — countries where being gay is illegal or a problem. They don’t deserve my money.
 
Do you prefer to travel solo or with a partner or friend?

Travel gives us some of life’s great moments, that burn in our memory for ever after — these are moments that have to be shared with friends.
 
What’s your favourite thing about your home city?

I was born in Lyon, but I’ve lived all my life in Oporto and it’s my home. It’s a beautiful city, it’s where my best friends are, my loved ones, and to live close to the sea is amazing.
 
Where were you going last time you stepped on a plane?

I always feel like I’m rushing, and I love it!

I’ve just got off the plane from Barcelona. I’m currently travelling to Barcelona almost every month, and sometimes more than once. I shoot most of my movies there and it’s a city that I’m falling more and more in love with every time that I’m there. I’ve also made some really good friends there.

Next weekend I’m travelling to Köln in Germany, and then it’s five days in Oporto for the Sex festival.
 
What are your vacation plans?

No plans yet, but this year I’m planning to go on holidays with some friends.

I think for sure I’ll make it to Madrid pride — World Pride will be worth checking out.
 
What’s your dream destination?

Sydney, Australia. Get ready for me fellas — I’m coming soon!
