You started out in science. Were you a bit of a mad scientist? What is your educational background and area of interest in the sciences? When did you work at in that field?
I was a bit of a mad scientist. I found that my original intentions of delving into science were short sighted due to the control that the conservative American government has on stem cell research. I initially thought I wanted to be a acupuncturist, then I became intrigued with pain treatment and I ended up falling in love with Neuroscience. Doubling in English as well, I got in shape running to both ends of north and south campus at UCLA, toting tomes of Chaucer, Milton, Shakespeare on one arm, Biochemistry, Neuroanatomy and Physics on the other.
I slaved away in Radiation Oncology, Pharmacology and Biological Imaging, Neurobiology, Neuropathology, Opthamology, Immunology, and of course, I tried to score some surprisingly gifted well hung nerds in nearly every department, and I got to know various nooks and crannies of the hospital's staircases very well.
Were you a wildwoman in some respects when you had a more straight job or as a teenager or was that something that happened later?
I became wild later, I was serially monogamous in my twenties, sporadically testing the LA Weekly personal ads, and an internet site for matchmaking, but I ended up only getting a few free gourmet meals, due to my allergic reactions to inane sugardaddies, but I didn't get into the freaky stuff until my thirties. My first sexual encounter with a woman was when I was 32, my first anal toy experience was when I was 34, my first transgendered experience was when I was 35, hopefully my first pre-op tranny gang bang will be sometime while I am 36. I have no desire to speed over my sexual limit, I am cruising at a good clip. Part of the joy of being a porn star is that I get laid, really well, and I get paid for it. It really is a blast.
What made you make the transition from science to porn and was there any intermediate stage?
There were a few shifts into high gear: in my early twenties I worked at a hostess club a few blocks from where I live now in downtown Los Angeles. I was so naive, I thought it was just dancing. I was too poor to afford contacts, so I couldn't even recognize customers. I would just stare vacantly ahead with a relaxed pretentious smile on my face that they interpreted as being aloof. When I stopped being selected, I put on my glasses and I was shocked at all the handjob action that was going on in the back room. Of course I was shocked, horrified, and kept my glasses off, but made little money since I was such a good girl.
More monetary desperation led me to try an amateur dance contest, where clearly I was the only amateur. The winner of the dance contest snaked up a 30 foot pole, flipped upside down, and disrobed her beaded see through dress without even touching it, hardly a green stripper, pure hustler. I shelved dirty dancing till my last year of college, when all the financial aid money ran out. I stripped at one of the best clubs in Vegas, and I feature danced at the opening of another. I would finish my Physics lab on a Thursday afternoon, take the bus to LAX and then take Southwest to Vegas, bus to the club, check in and pay my exorbitant house fee and work double shifts through till Sunday am, and then I would fly back Monday am for my first 8 am class in Calculus. I made enough money to hire someone to take notes for me in class and some lectures I never attended, instead I did all the problems and showed up to the midterms and finals only, catnapping when I could. I was still a good girl, and it wasn't until I got into porn that I went all out balls to the wall. I finally felt free to experiment, and get in touch with my dark side.
What inspires your look?
Beauty through pain. Reclaiming my body as art.
What inspired you to get your first tattoo? Any special meaning behind your current ink?
Healing. Tattoo liposuction. Overcoming my fears of pain, and my need to control my mind over my body.
Do you have plans for future body mods? If so, what?
Re-pierce the nips, maybe the face. Get my sleeved inked in color in Italy. Some nice genital piercing, maybe inside near the back wall of my vagina, near my perianal side.
What motivated you to get a mohawk? What colors has your hair been and any special reason for any particular ones?
I like being unique, standing out. It gets me more chicks…nah seriously, PORN, it corrupts all and I am a good example. I have had red hair, blue hair, red and green hair, blond, long blond fluffy hair to my butt, black, dreads, perms, shaved, purple, pink with blond roots. My hair caught on fire once going blond from red.
What sort of mainstream acting have you done and how did you get into it? Have any mainstream producers considered you too extreme?
I am often too extreme for porn but not for mainstream. In mainstream they don't ask many questions and they just assume I was a major heroin addict with my life tattooed across my flesh. I like to make people nervous. I usually selectively detail my current work life, artist/writer/model kinda sums it up, The unaddressed fact I get naked in from of the camera for my day job means I don't have issues with being filmed, nor do I care if my ass looks fat! A person that looks like me has usually been around sampling all portions of the plate of life, so I find myself getting cast in the rich character roles, and I like the meaty qualities of acting: diving in and getting intensely wrapped up in something and making art out of it for others to savor is very satisfying indeed.
What are some of your favorite fetishes?
Armpit odor, licking of the taint, slapping, consumption of women's feet by mouth and pussy. I love giving severe dominatrix sessions, I really do get off, and I love planning sessions, purchasing unique tools, and reading weird scenarios that the slaves dream up.
How did you first get into fetish?
I loved Helmut Newton's photography, the fat chicks in R. Crumb, WeeGee, Christopher Walken, David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick, Eric Stanton, Irving Klaw, James Spader in Secretary, watching women dive into pools of water, walking naked in the snow and masturbating with icicles while drunk, I have always been on the far edge of reasonably perverse…Some people are born to be a ballet dancer, I was born to be a sexual pervert.
My early collections of porn were the writings of Bukowski. I would masturbate reading about these strung out whorish chicks he would seduce through his words. There was a bookstore in my neighborhood that had paperbacks you could buy for saved change and I discovered him there, or perhaps it was in the infrequent trips to City Lights Bookstore in North Beach, San Francisco?
My porn collection of a visual nature was a playing card deck of Jeff Stryker pictures. Rock hard cocks on the rocks on a beach, cock in boxer shorts, cock in fireman's boots, was it the eyes looking at me or the freakishly long cock? I bought Jeff Stryker magazines, and then fell into a pattern of lusting after gay men. I still really love watching men suck cock, and I love watching a guy take it up the ass.
Top, bottom, or switch?
Switch! I am very aggressive with women I fuck women on camera and severely dominating a man, but I love being mummified and left to marinate in my feelings of release. The weight of a leather straightjacket and a latex or leather buckled sack is heaven.
How did you get into domination? What are some of your favorite things to do in a session?
My art studio burned down and I lost everything, more or less. Living off the state was not a desirable option, so I ended up getting a lot of ink to deal with the depression of losing pretty much everything. I dramatically changed my body image, like a butterfly coming out of chrysalis, and soon I attracted all sorts of submissive guys that taught me how to be a dominatrix. I think that is what makes me so powerful, I don't hate men, I respect them.
I really like sophisticated fetishes, with layers of perversion. I personally enjoy mummification, bondage, strap-on play, isolation tanks, flogging, corsets, liquid latex, expensive sex toys, dressing up in something that costs more than most people's rents…I enjoy playing with others.
What types of sex toys are your favorites and how do you like to use them? Do you like to have partners use sex toys on you?
Silicone, high grade, by Tantus. I especially like Fun Factory, Fetters in London, but my Hitachi Wand takes the cake. I am really partial to leather floggers, canes, restraints, and custom made BDSM furniture.
Is there anything you'd like to try in bed but have not gotten a chance to yet?
g/g/a with anal toy in me and Hitachi Wand on my clit.
What attributes turn you on the most in other people?
Applied intellect. Opposable thumbs/ Competence. Dignity under duress.
What types of clothing do you like best on other people?
Designer, form fitting with unusual flair. Some thought to it, no lycra, yellow ochre. Tactile.
What are some of your favorite bands or musical acts?
Black Kites, a downtown LA band and MasterSlave.
What are your favorite foods?
Indian, and tabouli, hummus. Mineral water, French press gourmet coffee, homemade cookies, fresh cut up fruit from Grand Central Market in downtown LA, oysters at the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station in Manhattan, pints of Guinness in London, Full English Breakfast, cold organic tofu with soy sauce on it and green onion.
What would be your ideal pet?
French Bulldog. I really want one. Someone please get me one!
Where have you traveled to and where would you most like to travel? What cities do you enjoy the most and why?
Japan, China, Tibet, India, Thailand, Korea, Mexico, England, France, Germany, and Belgium. My favorite is Geneva. It is very open minded, a small country town dedicated to precision and healthy living. I would love to move there and run a dungeon.
What are your plans for the near future?
To make enough money to further my artistic porn endeavors. To buy an art loft, and film myself fucking in it. Then make popcorn and invite friends to watch it.
