We had the privilege to sit down for a chat with Austin Jo Bradley about culture, modern love, and more. He is a great guy that you should definitely hit up on Nintendo Switch Online if you have the chance. And, make sure to check out all the beautiful pictures in the gallery after the article. He’s a genuinely great guy who deserves the world.

If you’re here looking for Austin (the former @AustinJoBradley, now @AustinOBradley) because you remember him from his thirst-traps, you should know he has given up on those to look for more real interactions online. But, this interview is from before that when he had a brief Onlyfans run.

1_ WHAT ARE A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS IN MEDIA RIGHT NOW?

I’m loving the gaming community this year! It has been a really good year for games.

2_ WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING, PLACE, OR PERSON YOU GO TO FOR INSPIRATION?

Honestly anybody successful really. It pushes me to do 10x the work that everybody else around me does.

3_ WHAT SAW THAT YOU’RE GETTING SERIOUS ABOUT HEALTH AND FITNESS. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE THOSE JUST STARTING OUT?

When my boyfriend of two years broke up with me early this year, I wanted to start a journey of self-love and acceptance and I found that with healthy living and the gym. It was a complete lifestyle change that I’m incredibly grateful for.

4_ IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT SOCIETY RIGHT NOW WHAT WOULD IT BE?

How TOXIC the internet is. We’re so obsessed with ourselves (myself included I’m not gonna lie). However, this year has tested me and I’m trying to be more at the moment

5_ WAS YOUR JOURNEY OF ACCEPTANCE AND SELF LOVE SOMETHING THAT LED TO YOU STARTING AN ONLYFANS ACCOUNT?

Maybe kinda sorta. I’ve always been insecure about the way that I looked and I felt that I needed to “look” a certain way to be accepted into the gay community since I no longer have my boyfriend. I guess I started it because now I’m proud of the way I look and all the work it took to get me here.

6_ WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF DRAWN INTO TOXICITY ONLINE, WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO FOR RE-CENTERING YOURSELF?

I literally just stay off social media for a minute. Social media isn’t real life. You can put that stuff away at any time and it will still be there later.

7_WHAT’S ONE OF YOUR BIGGEST REGRETS YOU HAVE IN LIFE?

Time wasted. Time is oh so precious. We all get a certain number of hours here. Tell the people you love, that you love them.

8_ WHAT’S YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SARCOIDOSIS?

My grandmother died because of it. It’s not a well known or common disease and there is no cure.

9_ ARE YOU DATING AROUND? WHAT’S YOUR APPROACH? APP-BASED? BARS? FRIEND GROUPS? AND WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON MODERN LOVE?

I am currently not dating around and won’t be for a while. I don’t usually date however I met my ex through mutual friends. And it worked out when it did so I’d say meeting through friend or locals is the way to go. However, I’m not against using social apps when and if the time comes. My take on modern love is- it’s beautiful with the right person. We live in a hookup culture (which I don’t partake in even though my social media suggest either wise).

took this this morning but forgot to post. afternoon yall pic.twitter.com/MRgk2DHGq7— Austin Jo Bradley (@AustinJoBradley) October 26, 2019
