1. How do I get into porn?
I get that question asked a lot. It’s usually by guys — I’m not going to judge, but let’s just say that it’s never surprised me that men are the usual suspects when it comes to this question.
First, the issues that are unisex: you’ll have to move to Los Angeles. There is no real industry outside of LA, except for small pockets in San Francisco, Las Vegas and Miami, though there’s not enough work to make a living. If you aren’t one for being stuck in traffic (and you will be in LA), then you’ll need to look for a place in the San Fernando Valley. You will need to be tested for HIV and STDs once a month. You’ll probably need an agent, though some women get scooped up for a contract immediately if they’re lucky and hot.
Guys: I’m going to be honest here. It’s hard. Very hard. And that’s not a pun. Look deep into yourself and ask if you can fuck outside when it’s so cold you can see your breath or under the blazing sun when it’s 100-plus degrees. Can you fuck while a crew of guys are glaring at you because you’re holding up their lunch break? Can you fuck a woman that doesn’t turn you on? Are you ok with gangbangs, double penetration, double vaginal penetration or double anal penetration? If you answered no to any of those questions, forget about it and if you don’t know what any of those are, you should find out.
There’s a line of guys, Viagra in hand, who are ready to replace you. Sorry to be harsh, but there’s a reason why you see so many of the same guys — the producers and directors need someone reliable and time is money. It’s hard for a new guy to get a shot because nothing holds up a production more than a limp dick.
Girls: Are you comfortable enough with yourself to do this? Do you honestly like sex, and sex in front of and with strangers? Are you ok with having sex with guys that are a lot older and guys that you might not give the time of day to? Will your boyfriend and family be ok with this when they find out? One way or another, they will find out — it’s not like there’s going to be a bag on your head.
If you are truly ok with all of those questions, then I’d say you should start to consider porn. But the final decision takes a very deep level of soul searching.
2. Can you tell me more about your classical music career?
Sure. I went to a conservatory in the Bay Area, and I played the oboe professionally before entering the adult industry. I did the things you’d expect a classical musician to do — play in more performances of The Nutcracker and Swan Lake than I can count, give music lessons for extra cash — in addition to working part-time as a librarian at the conservatory’s library. (Feel free to insert your own librarian fantasies involving me here. Done? Good. Moving on…)
If you met me back then, you’d know that I was on my way to porno stardom. I’ve always been very sexually adventurous and back then I was into exploring the bounds of my desires. Besides, a conservatory is nothing but a big band camp so I explored a lot.
3. Do you still play the oboe?
Of course! In fact, I’ve been trying to work my classical music training into my upcoming productions. I even have some ideas for a script about a starving musician who’s tempted into corruption.
Not that I’d know anything about corruption.
4. What’s a typical day on set like?
I usually show up on my call time and start out by filling out paperwork to confirm I’m over 18 and that I release the rights of the use of my image for the production. There’s usually a makeup artist and that’s where a lot of idle gossip and chit-chat goes on. Not that I’m one to gossip. ;)
Once I’m out of makeup, the director usually goes over clothes. Contrary to what you may have read or believe, the girls in the business bring their own clothes with them, usually in big roll-on suitcases. Once that’s settled, the photographer takes stills of me in those clothes, then of me without the clothes on. These are called “pretty girls” and the photos are usually used for the box cover and photo gallery.
Then I meet the guy I’m working with. I’m easy going so there’s not too many people I’ll refuse to be in a scene with, though it is a performer’s right to have someone on their “no list.” We trade tests to make sure we’re clean and, providing the production is organized and there’s no snags, we get to the sex not long after that.
Some directors let you have sex on your own pace. They’re just there with a video camera, taping you do your thing. Some of them are very exacting and they’ll say things like, “I need three minutes of doggie — go!” I’ve been on sets where directors like these have stopwatches. Most directors, though, are somewhere between those two extremes.
There’s usually a break in shooting mid-way through the scene. The photographer takes penetration shots, or hardcore shots, though some shooters use high def screen captures instead of using a still camera. We start shooting again and, assuming there’s no issues, it’s all over an hour or an hour and a half after I show up.
5. Who are your favorite guys to work with?
The great thing about this business is the variety of guys I have the opportunity to have sex with. Like I said earlier, there’s not too many people I wouldn’t work with but my personal favorites have always been Rocco Siffredi, Manuel Ferrara, Mr. Pete and Mr. Marcus.
What can I say? I have a thing for Europeans or guys whose first name is Mister.
Seriously though, the things they can do makes you understand why they get so much work. They’re as much fun to watch as they are to fuck.
6. Who are your favorite girls to work with?
I like girls, but I don’t like them any more — or less, for that matter — than men. I need both to make me happy. I’m pretty easy to please and play with when it comes to girls, just like how I am with my boys.
I enjoy working with Kimberly Kane, Aiden Starr, Kristina Rose, Julia Ann, Syd Blackavich and of course, Belladonna.
Bella’s not just an amazing performer but a creative and talented director as well. She’s one of the reasons I got into the industry and my inspiration to direct.
7. Do you really orgasm in your scenes?
Absolutely. I think giving anything less than 100 percent (I’d say 110 percent but that’s statistically impossible, despite what any jock tells ESPN) in my scenes would be cheating my fans and that includes all the fun that comes with it!
8. When will you do double anal?
If and when I do I’ll let the world know with a press release and a full page ad in AVN.
It’s a pretty tight fit to begin with and doing double duty up there takes some practice. I’d also like to continue to have normal bowel movements, so don’t count on it being something I do all the time.
For now, patience is a virtue. Now, why don’t you tell me when you’ll do double anal? ;)
9. Why do you let men beat you for entertainment?
I’ve gone on the record as saying I’m a feminist — but a staunchly pro-sex feminist.
Bondage, Domination and submission, also known as BDSM, is an aspect of my sexuality that I enjoy. BDSM is not misogyny.
Besides, if you watch more of my BDSM scenes you’ll see that I dominate other men (and other women). Turnabout is fair play, after all.
10. What’s you most recent release? Where can I see your most recent work?
I shoot for many companies and sometimes it’s hard even for me to keep on top of the new releases that come out.
I suggest you keep an eye on the reviews at AdultDVDTalk.com. They’re timely and do a good job of keeping up on new releases.
