I find that the industry in America is more physically, and sometimes
more mentally demanding, the sheer volume of work in the USA takes it's
toll. In Europe there is no such 'capital' of porn like LA. The work
load is shared out over several countries including Hungary, Czech Republic,
Italy, and Spain to name a few. As for the cultural differences... there
are many. European people I think, on the whole are more naturally kinky.
The culture there doesn't put such a guilt trip on you for exploring
sex and sexuality... I mean, I got a ticket in LA for topless sunbathing!
Sunbathing? And I was made to feel like a sordid criminal, that I had
done something terrible, and I was going to hell. (If only the officer
knew...) I think that people there are more liberal with there sexuality,
because it's easier when you're not being outcast and condemned.
The amount of times in LA I hear the boys stressing about how the balls
of the second performer are bashing his, about how close their cocks
are together. In Europe, this thought wouldn't cross the mind of the
performers, and if it did, I don't think anyone really cares. There's
a lot of labelism in the States that impeads peoples performace...haha...
If I don't like the guys I'm working with, I get myself off by making
them do a double anal, so I know their dicks are all rubbing up against
each others inside my hole, it makes me wet!
I have a degree in Criminology and English Studies, which I finally
finished, and I'm just starting another one in Modern Languages. As
for whether or not my education has helped me in porn, I'm not sure...
it certainly played a huge role in starting me off... I tell you the
story... I left my poor town in Wales to live in Thailand teaching English
as a Foreign Language for a year after college. When I finally returned
to the UK, I went straight to London and started University. The expense
of London was so great after volunteering for a year that I started
work in a strip club called the Windmill in Soho, London... strip clubs
there don't require you to dance too much, more like hustle for your
cash. The guys pay you to sit down chating/dancing/eating per hour,
but the problem is there are very few clients and loads of girls, and
I hate hustling, so when the opportunity came up to make porn in LA,
I packed my bags and never looked back... Moral of my story... DON'T
get an education in London unless you have rich parents, or want to
enter the Skin Trade.( you will be rendered poverty stricken if you
don't) DO get an education, or at least half of one, in London if you
want a semi-excusable explanation for the Folks as to why you became
a cum-guzzling porn whore.
>What do you feel are the greatest benefits to being a pornographic
Lots of cool people, sex, traveling, Securing my finances, certainly
an added bonus. Just a different look at life, a side that some people
never experience. Not just the side on camera, but the lifestyle experience
that comes with porn. It can get pretty crazy at times... I have dealt
with a huge spectrum of situations and emotions that maybe I wouldn't
have, if I hadn't started porn. When it's time for me to move on an
leave the industry, I hope I leave happy, and with a whole lot of memories,
good and bad.
For me, there are loads of drawbacks, but that's the same as a lot
of things you choose to do in life... every job/path/vocation in life
has pros and cons, and I made my choices so I'm not going to regret
them. Things I think I'll miss out on for example, is I'd love to teach
kids in school, but that won't be possible now. I feel like I've lost
a few years with my family, because I don't really have anything to
talk to them about in depth with out going into something about porn.
For me, it's not a huge problem, but for others wanting to enter the
adult industry, think carefully before you do, because you will get
judged by Joe Public, which can sometimes feel like a witch hunt...
I'm sure some people would love to burn some of us Porners alive!
Other draw-backs include the industry in Europe not being the same
as in LA, so it's harder to find good work constantly. It's hard to
find serious, meaningful relationships that are real, and you're not
just settling for because there aren't so many options if you want to
do your job properly. You have to learn a great self contol to be able
to be happy, and keep jealousy under-wraps ect.
The last nice thing I did without expecting anything in return was
today on set when I showed some chick the easiest way to stick a baseball
bat up her ass, I also bought one of my roommates some moisturiser because
he said his skin was dry this morning. People always do nice things
for me, I'm really grateful to everyone being so cool when I go to work,
or for picking me up and taking me to the doctors.. the last really
BIG helpful things people did was this... When I had to move house unexpectedly
last month, I got 'fostered' by Hannah Harper, Rebbeca, and Rio Mariah,
until Arianna Jolle permanently adopted my homeless British ass.
[Isabel's boyfriend is] in the Italian industry, so he understands
the mentality behind the movies. Of course it's very easy to be here
in a different country for extended periods of time and get stressed,
and jealous, but it's not worth it. I don't want to be unhappy, I want
to be happy, so I do all I can to ensure he and I am. I've never had
a reason not to trust him, so why should I give myself or him unneccessary
grief? It is difficult to think of him with other girls, as it is for
him with me and other guys, more so for him, because he knows me, and
he knows I can potentially get turned on by any guy, young, old, fat,
thin... it's all in the sex appeal, but I know he def. needs good looking
girls, and a lot of the girls in Europe are drama queen and make it
hard for the guys to work, so I'm confident I don't have to worry. Anyway,
he wouldn't be with me if he didn't want me, and visa versa. Although
sex on camera is 'real' it's very adrenaline inspired, what I do at
home is very 'love' inspired... sex in porn and sex in private are two
