Interview with Andrew Christian Model Jon Pastor
Hi, Jon thanks for taking the time to talk to us. Many of our readers know you as an Andrew Christian model. How did you get started modeling and also how did you get involved with Andrew Christian?
I started modeling when I was 18! A photographer had reached out to me because I was a gymnast and he wanted to take some “bendy” pictures of me! I started Andrew Christian because my friend, Pablo Hernandez, had recommended me, and it just so happened that they were beginning their “vibe” campaign! I was pretty good fit because it’s all fitness oriented! Since that day, I’ve been on board!
What was your first shoot for Andrew Christian and how did it go?
My first shoot for Andrew Christian was the “VIBE” line! It was so much fun! I worked out for a whole day prior to the shoot! Little did I know I was going to be working out on set for the next 3 days. My body was so exhausted but I had so much fun!
Andrew Christian has some great locations for his photo shoots. Which shoot has been your most memorable and why?
So far, my favorite has been the shoot for the “Ranch Hands” video! We were on a ranch in a valley, and we got to play with horses! It was so cold outside, but we managed to have so much fun running around and getting things done! I wasn’t too fond of washing a car in 40-degree weather, though! That was brutal, but it was hilarious watching us all panic when Topher tried to wet us!
Andrew is known for creating some really fun underwear. What is the wildest pair you have ever modeled for a shoot?
The wildest pair has probably been the football jock! The design is so unique in that it looks like it should be a pair of football shorts, but it’s underwear!
Since we are an underwear blog, I have to ask, modeling for one of the largest underwear companies, have you developed a bigger love of undies? Also, did you like underwear before you started modeling underwear?
I’ve always loved underwear! Since I was a little kid, I would make my parents splurge on underwear! Now, it’s basically all I wear! I love it!
Do you have a favorite line, style or pair of Andrew Christian underwear?
My favorites would have to be the Trophy Boy and BLOW! lines! Those two are the sexiest and most comfortable line to me.
You were one of the models to participate in SEX= POWER = POWER. What did you think when the project was presented to you?
At first, I truly had no idea what to expect. They were very vague in the description of the project, but I just knew it was gonna be hot and beautiful!
Also, how was it pitched to you?
It was pitched as a very “Madonna-esque” project. That’s when I was hooked!
We interviewed Jacob Ford and he said one of the pictures he took with you in the SEX=POWER=FREEDOM book was his favorite. Do you have a favorite picture from the book?
I know exactly which picture he’s talking about! That’s one of my favorites as well! The connection is unreal in that picture! My personal favorite is the one of me inside the cage, reaching out! It’s very representative of my personality!
What was the shoot like getting to participate with almost every Andrew Christian model at once?
It was definitely different! Every model has their own personality and it was great learning how everyone worked! This particular shoot though was a great bonding experience because we were together for 3 days so it brought everyone a little closer since we all live across the US!
Shoots are a long process. It’s not just show up, put on underwear, and in 10 minutes take some great pics and go. How long did it take to shoot your part for the book?
The book was shot over a span of 3 days, and each section I was in was probably like 30 – 45 minutes at a time. I shot in the same place and position so many times, just different angles. It’s not as quick and easy as it seems!
What is your take on the final book? Also, what did you take away from the experience?
I love the book and the message it sends out. Being a part of this book, especially during shoots, made me more open to different aspects of sexuality. There’s more than just “black and white” in everything.
Are there any other Andrew Christian models you would love to do a shoot/video with, that you haven’t worked with yet?
I would love to do a video with Pablo! Even though we are best friends, we’ve never done a shoot together! I think it would be so much fun!

What is something about you that most people, especially our readers, may be surprised to know about you?
Although I look overtly-sexual on social media and in shoots, and extremely unapproachable, I’m the exact opposite! I’m actually a complete goofball! If you see me out and about, don’t be afraid to say hi!
