Today I talked to a Swedish production company about participating in a TV show where they interview different people. A show about interesting people, so I guess I am interesting, or at least my choice of profession seems to be.
One thing that I frequently get asked (also today on the phone) is “why choose to do porn”? One of the most frequent misunderstandings is that it’s something someone just ended up in. Or that I had no other options. I have come across a lot of people who have a hard time processing that porn can be something you actually choose to do. Freely without anyone forcing you. Even if you have other options. I can truly say I have no friends or know of anyone who didn’t choose porn for themselves.
Let me ask you. Are you happy with your job? I’ve recently come across only one other person (outside porn) who said she had her dream job. She was working for the captain on a large ship that transports oil around the world.. She will be captain one day. Very cool. Most people you talk to are somewhat unsatisfied with their job. It might be stressful, not enough salary, co-workers suck (not literally) etc. I can say that I have always been happy to go to work! Yes, I’ve been tired or I complained about my script being too long (anyone really care about the dialogue?), but I’ve never been bored, that’s for sure hahhahaaaaa…
My only regret is that I didn’t start earlier. I started when I was 27. I’ve been a late bloomer in most things in life. I chose porn out of free will and never regretted it. Yes, it was a tough one to tell my family. There were no standing ovations for my choice of career. Luckily they are great, and understanding this is what makes me happy.
So why porn? Except from the obvious of loving sex, I love being in front of the camera, and getting paid well! I have always been able to choose when I want to work and when I want to take time off. I’ve been lucky to work around the world, with great companies and people. I’ve also had fun attending award shows, even though I never managed to win LOL… Danced and performed around the world, and met many great fans! I have made a lot of friends, and got to eat a lot of free pizza on set hahahaaa…
Things are even better now. I can make all that dough from home now. I will make another post on how porn has changed shortly 🙂
Other than that I can report that our street still has no power. Some blocks have gotten their power back, but not us. Hardest part is sleeping with no AC. My favorite coffee shop Gusto’s around the corner is running on a generator so get my coffee though! Mucho importante!
My reading light at night is a flashlight taped to the bed. You get creative!
Send some electricity my way por favor 🙂
