Ricky Boon…Living His Best Gay Life!

Reading Time: 3 minutes

A new rising star on the Paris scene (both gay and fitness) Ricky has been setting pulses racing all over the Marais.

BGL:

You have recently emigrated to Paris from London. Has it been easy to make the adjustment?

RB:

There is still a lot I need to do over here, being fluent in French being one of the biggest things. Saying that it has been a lot easier than I thought. I have managed to pick up clients to coach pretty easily, and made a lot of cool new friends.

BGL:

What does an average working day look like for you?

RB:

I usually have a handful of personal training clients, no more than three a day…I train them either at my house, at the sports park across the road from my house or at the gym around the corner. Working a maximum of three hours a day gives me plenty of time to cook for myself and spending 2 hours a day in the gym, 5 days a week. Living the life.

BGL:

Do you have a gogo name, and what were your rejected attempts?

RB:

Ricardo Prince is my stage name and I was born with it!

BGL:

What’s the toughest thing about being a gogo dancer?

RB:

I have always had issues with body confidence, so I doubt myself a lot. I think that’s only because in this industry it’s not about how good of a dancer you are, it’s all about how you look and how jacked your body is. So being a professionally trained dancer and being turned down for a lot of jobs has taken hits to my confidence a few times.

BGL:

What is the best job you have ever had?

RB:

That’s a hard one, I did enjoy European Gay Ski Week I did this year, only because we get to enjoy a holiday in the French alps as part of a team of dancers. I made a lot of new friends and felt very at home in the French Go Go scene very quickly.

BGL:

And the worst?

RB:

I love to dance, I can’t really think of a worst. Although if the music is bad that can make it hard to get your groove on to.

BGL:

Give us your top fitness tip right now?

RB:

Don’t get complacent. The fitness industry is changing every year, l stay educated so when science decides something you were doing last year is in correct or ineffective you don’t get left behind.

BGL:

What is your best asset?

RB:

That’s a hard one, I think my crazy side that not everyone gets to see.

BGL:

What is the thing that is the most surprising about you?

RB:

My body dysmorphia, or my lack of confidence (sometimes)

BGL:

The worst pick-up line anyone has ever used on you?

RB:

Dick pics?

BGL:

You have a beautiful long-term boyfriend, so can you guys give us some advice to longevity and success #relationshipgoals

RB:

It has been a long hard journey and we have had to make a lot of compromises on both sides. We have been through so much together that when we do fight I just need to remember the journey we have been on. Be patient, be forgiving.

BGL:

What’s the best thing about being gay?

RB:

Meeting all the different kinds of people that come in and out of your life.

BGL:

Who would play you in a movie?

RB:

Me, there is no one better.

BGL:

Where do you want to be in 20 years?

RB:

I would like to own my own gym / studio.

BGL:

Best ever holiday?

RB:

I have two, 1/ Anywhere with the boy and family 2/ Anywhere with thousands of hot wasted boys (Ricky gives me the cheeky side eye-there’s that wild side he was talking about!)

BGL:

What is your getting ready track?

RB:

Changes a lot, but I do like a bit of Britney Spears

BGL:

Favourite club?

RB:

So far I like Circuit Water Park Party, any chance to walk around in Speedo’s all day.

BGL:

If you could have a super hero power, what would it be?

RB:

Telekinesis

BGL:

Your biggest regret?

RB:

At the moment, not paying attention in French at school.

BGL:

Boxers or Briefs?

RB:

Both

BGL:

Your favourite BGL product and where would you wear it?

Always skimpy underwear, and all day every day.

BGL:

What is your advice for living your Best Gay Life?
