Paying homage to the “Is it a bird?, is it a plane?; no, it’s Superman” quote, I hereby give you a similar one. Is she a boxer? Is she an author? No, she’s a dancer, model and actress (the most entertaining of trifectas).
Her name will be revealed in due time. For now, you will be treated to her mind. If words can be music to your ears, then here is a medley of amusing musings from the oldest net forum (i.e. Usenet).
I wear U.S. children’s size 4 – that’s pretty small.
I left the college jaded and sick to death of everything even remotely related to the experience. I still think fondly about a career in the field of study which I chose, but I don’t pursue it. It isn’t going to go anywhere and leave me behind, I can always pick up a book, go back to class and get updated on whatever new advances which are made in that field and find a position.
Yes, they do. I pay taxes in two states (California where I earn it, Ohio where I’m resident), federal, and city (Cleveland). When I’m paid in cash or by personal cheque, I claim it under the cash/tips clause. When I’m paid by cheque/payroll, I get a 1099 form.
I like being around people who don’t look at me like I’m some nut-case, because they’re just as nuts as I am (each in their own way). I like the affirmation and the ego stroke from fans who think I’m attractive and sexy. I like performing, being displayed to the public eye, for it’s own sake. Let’s face it, if you walked into your living room and the floor was covered with blood and mangled bodies, you wouldn’t go down into the dark basement to investigate that creepy noise. It’s the movies, it’s a fantasy! It’s entertainment, not reality.
For most of us, a career in figure modeling or adult networking is only available for a limited time. It’s age-sensitive. If it’s something you want to do at all, you better drop everything else and get to it, because you’re not getting any younger.
Blue Angel was released direct-to-cable, and has just recently gone to DVD, and I’ve caught a couple reviews of it in the past week. Last I heard, Simon Wolf was working on a new movie titled Love Bytes.
I have never considered myself an actress. I can memorize lines. I can say the lines on cue. I can project the required facial expression dictated by the mood of the script – but that’s it. Perhaps, as Mr. Riley suggested, if the material that we were given to perform was of a higher quality, and the directors were more interested in the believability of the plot, we could do more – but we’ll never know. It hasn’t changed my sex life.
I certainly can’t speak for anyone else, but on-camera sex doesn’t reflect a significant similarity to the personal preferences of the performers. I know that plenty of times during breaks in the shooting of a scene I have “played around” with my co-performer of the moment, and what we did off camera didn’t bear a striking resemblance to what we did on camera. I often smile and laugh before, during, and after sex – just because I’m happy!
I do it because it’s a fun thing to do, whether I’m being paid for the action with a stranger or I’m with my truest love (ummm…sure, I’ll get one of those some day), I’m there to have a good time. If you don’t want to see someone having FUN while they have sex, you should never watch me.
Marco Pallotti is a photographer who has joined the top-tiered talent ranks in the adult industry. I’ve worked for him and just plain old had fun with him as well. Little Gray Guy is a site dedicated to his cat (and the women who take off their clothes and pet him).
Is Kelly Fire and Kelly Steele the same girl?
Yes, same performer. She married Hamilton Steele.
Hey, Simon Wolf’s movies haven’t gone out of business. Also, they didn’t “break” a deal with JKP, they purchased their interest in one of their movies (Blue Angel) to make the movie their very first done 100% by Simon Wolf.
Just an observation here, but I noticed that in lots of the porn flicks, most of the chicks keep their eyes closed when giving head. Why is that?
What are they supposed to look AT?
Where you are changes your options a bit. In Cleveland, Ohio, you’re lucky if you can even get a doctor to order a PCR HIV test after you pay for an appointment and a bunch of other things you didn’t even want. If you do get a doctor to order you one, good luck paying less than 200$ for it. I can get an ELISA HIV test for free, though, with my 10$ complete STD battery and full internal check-up at the community clinic.
I don’t have any issues with “rough” sex or with role-play. I have an objective and generic understanding of most fetishes, but if I dislike it or it grosses me out, forget it. On camera, sex is already fake enough (e.g. being interrupted every 5 minutes for stills and camera angle adjustments), so I want to at least be able to present myself as enjoying something I would have enjoyed if the camera were not there.
Why does being educated have to exclude a career in pornography? Education is a wonderful thing, but it doesn’t necessarily bring joy and wonder to your life. I’m educated, I suppose. I went to an excellent college, so I did excellent college things.
As far as emotional along with other mental aspects of sexuality and relationships, I would imagine that if the relationship stood the stress of one (or both) partners being in the industry at all, there would probably be acceptable accommodations for whatever effects it has on those sexual aspects.
Why would anyone want to do it, especially given that people may be “despised” socially for having been in the adult industry? How about because of the immediate affirmation of self and the feeling of acceptance within the family of performers that many young people never had the chance to feel during high school or within their own family. How about because it’s lucrative? How about because some people really are exhibitionists and they get a kick out of performing?
How about because most people like having a job they think they’re good at, are appreciated at, get paid well at, and have working hours they like. There are undoubtedly quite a few other reasons that I haven’t thought of, I’ve thought of these because I experience them as reasons why I like being in porn. As to the original question of what actresses do on camera that they probably don’t do in their personal lives.
*I* don’t do anything on camera that I wouldn’t do off camera, but that’s a personal issue with me. Lots of performers aren’t interested in the acts that they perform, most of the bi-sexual female performers probably never had, or will have, a lesbian relationship. Most of the male performers probably don’t call up their buddies and plan to do double anal on their girlfriends. Nobody has sex with the pizza boy.
This is such an interesting thread that I just had to jump in. I’m not a regular viewer. I’ve seen maybe half a dozen porn videos in my life that I wasn’t in and I was just watching for recreation. I always felt very conflicted while watching. It turned me on, in some out-of-focus sort of way, but at the same time it made me feel inadequate and unattractive. In my own eyes, I could just never measure up to what I saw.
As for the comments about male performers being abusive, I want to say that out of the (about) 40 scenes which I’ve done, I’ve had a bad time with one performer in one scene. Most of them have treated me wonderfully. Polite, affectionate, friendly and usually professionally – better than the “average joe” tends to treat me.
What you see on film (video, DVD, whatever) is the director’s concept of what he thinks is going to turn you on. It doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the performers themselves. I don’t even think most of the girls you see in porn behave in bed (when off camera) the way that you see them in porn.
I mean, c’mon! Facials?! Sure, I’d let a fella who I was in love with give me a facial, if he really wanted to. I’d laugh and have fun because he was doing something that he really got off on. Good for him. If it was what he wanted all the time, or even a significant percentage of the time, forget it! Why? Not because it’s degrading or any other nonsense like that, but just because it’s LAME!
I know that many of you think porno sex is SOOoooo hot, but really, it’s not. It’s a convoluted concoction of contrivances designed to make sex look a lot more interesting and different than what sex is generally like. It’s as artificial as all those implants and viagra hard-ons, it looks good – but it’s not what’s happening in YOUR bedroom. There’s a reason why it’s just not happening in your bedroom – because it’s LAME.
You, the men, don’t want to have sex with one leg in the air (so the camera can fit under your balls to get a good angle on the penetration) while grunting like a rutting pig, unable to fit more than half of your enormous penis into your partner’s orifice without making her scream in anguish, and then jack off for five minutes just when it was starting to really feel good.
We, the women, don’t want to have sex balancing on our tippy toes as our shoes rip holes in the bedspread we just bought or while being literally painfully clumsy in general. We’d like our clits touched with more than some rapid-flicking lizard tongue or some heavy handed rubbing whilst being pounded internally. Real women do anal, will try outrageous positions, take facials as well as wear any costume you can think of – but not all the time, not all the women, and not for every man.
If my information is correct, and I have good reason to believe it is, the artist who was born as Marcia E. Gray (i.e. Shanna McCullough) has retired before marrying director Jim Enright. She might still be doing some non-sex appearances, and maybe even a girl/girl now and then (I had the wonderful opportunity to work with her in Buttslammers 20 – an “all girl snorer” from yesteryear), but don’t expect to see anymore boy/girl scenes from her.
I had a really good time during the orgy scene for Buttslammers 20, albeit the three girl scene I was in was lousy, the other two girls didn’t want to do anything they’d been cast to do, and Bionca was furious, but it was too late in the day to do anything about it.
Oh, well…my biggest peeve with the movie was the editing, because they didn’t edit out off-camera director comments and other set noise, but they did manage to take out every interesting thing that I saw while watching the various scenes being shot. If you look at the box cover, you’ll note that they leave out stuff which there are great stills of (the money shots).
The orgy scene, in particular, is peculiarly disappointing; they either lost the footage of or edited out nearly all the really cool buttslamming. All you see is pussy, which is nice, but I don’t think someone who buys a title like Buttslammers is looking for just pussy.
I don’t have tattoos, I don’t have piercings (well, except for my ears, and I wear earrings so infrequently that the holes are almost always closed over). When I did my first scenes, I was so naïve that I thought I should have those things because all the other porno chicks had them. So I put a temporary tattoo on, and got a clip on belly button ring, and did my best to be a porn chick. Thank goodness that I didn’t do anything permanent! I know better now that I don’t need to have those things.
I wonder though, how many other gals come into the industry not knowing and thinking they better get mods? I’m sure that lots of the boobs are bought by noobs for that reason. I’m not important enough to get abused. I don’t post much because I just don’t have anything to say about most of the topics. Now and then, I might get email from a newsgroup reader, so far, none of them have been mean or nasty.
Someone isn’t sure if she claimed that Brandi Lyons doesn’t perform with black guys or interracial relations in general.
Nope, wasn’t me who said that. I have no idea who does IR and who doesn’t.
Has anyone ever used Georgette Neale’s services for films?:
I did a scene with Georgette for a Dr. Fellatio video (#31). She was on time and fun to work with, no complaints on my side. Elegant Angel has done at least one scene with her (the one which we did together!). I don’t know of anything else with her in it, though.
I just saw your performance in Slap Happy Deluxe. Now, I don’t know if this is a compilation of the previous Slap Happy films or something altogether new.
Umm…thank you! No, the scene I did wasn’t released in any previous Slap Happy, although it was shot around the same time as Slap Happy #2. I’m of two minds about the series, because it seemed to become something not quite what I had anticipated and maybe not quite so acceptable as I had hoped. I’m glad that you had fun watching it, though. I had fun doing it!
You know what? I was mistaken, Slap Happy Deluxe IS a compilation – I was thinking you meant the Slap Happy Special Edition that Extreme only released on their website, which was Slap Happy #5, which was the one I’m in. I guess they included me in the deluxe also. Sorry about the incorrect answer.
I’m not really understanding this, I think. Is the implication that laughing during sex invalidates the pleasure somehow? I thought it was supposed to be fun? Sex is frequently amusing, some of the silliest things in my life have happened during sex. Is porn not supposed to reflect that? Is it supposed to be “intense and serious”? Is that better somehow?
Some companies do deductions for you, some don’t. My accountant figures it all out. I just send the government the cheques. Porn is like any other business, and being a performer is like any other job – as far as taxes are concerned.
World Modeling, the talent agency in Los Angeles, refers to us as “figure models” and “adult film performers” depending on whether the the work is primarily still photography or video.
I haven’t made any secrets about what I do and don’t like in regards to performing in adult films. I like being able to work for 2 weeks in L.A. and then come home to Cleveland and live off what I made for 3 months.
There is an STD panel required, but it’s not a full panel. It doesn’t include herpes, hepatitis (A, B or C), HPV and other less known pathogens. It was my understanding that a full panel has never been required. Only HIV testing was required before 2003, and that was a self-imposed requirement by the industry. Then Cal/OSHA (the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health) noticed that this entirely unregulated industry was operating and made some noise.
The industry then started (again self-imposed) requiring more extensive testing, but doesn’t require anything that will put some big name performers off the roles and won’t actually kill someone. As far as I know (and I don’t know everything in the world, so I could very well be misinformed), there are no actual LEGAL requirements regarding STD testing and adult entertainment.
Well, maybe I’m unusual – I wanted (still want) to do it for the FUN of it. Fun, Fame and (hahaha) Fortune – in that order. From what I gather, most do it for only the fortune. Not that I mind the money, of course, but really, that’s just the cream for me. Compensation more for all the jobs I’m never gonna get AFTER having done porn, rather than compensation for doing something I like anyway.
If a person has managed to perform without using drugs, or other escape routes their psyche was probably either warped or solid enough to handle whatever moral or psychological issues they may have had to begin with. If they can’t perform without escaping through drugs or other destructive methods, they shouldn’t be performing in the first place.
It would seem to me that the most difficult emotional factor for any performer would be to maintain intimacy with their relationship partner, if you spend your working hours separating sex and intimacy, bring those back together at the end of the day when you go home to your significant other has to be tough.
The Gang Bang Squad website:
They spelled my name Kimmie – long strawberry blonde/red hair, pink halter top, white skirt.
Officially, she goes by Kimi Lixx.
This reminds me of a Pantera song called Floods.
