When your job is in sex work how much of a personal preference are you allowed to have? Lately there has been a lot of uproar against performers who do not do interracial sparking from a controversial, now deleted, blog post by adult performer Bella Rose. The performer discussed her personal reasoning for not shooting interracial scenes, a popular category in porn that sells well often leading to a higher payday for performers.
While some performers will only work with people they are attracted to, or like performing with, others are willing and ready to shoot with anyone to get the job done. It is almost impossible to determine if someone’s personal preference is genuinely law of attraction or based off biased thinking passed down through generations. While Bella brought up the fact that often performers will “save” their first interracial scene for months or years to obtain a higher payday by creating a greater demand, some performers have stated they will flat-out never perform an interracial scene. Adult performers have even stated that doing an interracial scene would cost them their white audience and fans who would stop buying their work if they do interracial. On the other hand, there are many performers and an entire agency, Spiegler Girls, who refuse to charge more for a scene based off of the costars skin color.
We may never get down to the bottom of every single performers reasoning for deciding when and if they perform interracial, but with more access to performers through social media some make it known publicly as Bella did. Back several years ago the top performers did not do interracial, including Jenna Jameson, Alexis Texas, Tera Patrick, and several others. As porn changes and progresses we are seeing more performers doing anal, interracial, girl on girl, boy girl scenes and anything else to get them recognition and bookings from directors looking to push the envelope further than in previous years.
What do you do on a Thursday night in Las Vegas? Well… if you are an adult industry journalist on a magazine deadline, then you go sit on set at a content shoot. What better way to procrastinate when on a writing deadline than to find more fun people in the adult industry to write about!
Leya Falcon has been in the adult industry for most of her adult life. She started with webcam and stripping, and now graduated onto a “professional princess”. Leya was just finishing removing gummy worms from her bum when I arrived and she greeted me with a kind smile. I love the adult industry.
Where to start?!? So much has been going on lately. Last week were the XRCO awards in Hollywood, California. As always, I learned more about myself than any thing else at this event. The biggest realization is: I like not being in the spotlight anymore. I remember what it was like and I relate it to working in a petting zoo(aka the strip club industry) and being on display. I in no way get paid enough nowadays as a writer to be treated like a piece of meat or zoo animal, that is something I have left in the past.
However, with my career as an ebook author, I am going to have to become more comfortable with having a public presence again. This is a realization I had while I was recovering from my last breast augmentation surgery. My looks will always matter, there is no running from getting judged for how you look. There is only using it to your advantage.
Using my appearance and sexuality to my advantage, rather than having it be a detriment, are things I have not been comfortable with in the past two years. My first set of breast implants were becoming encapsulated with scar tissue thus making me feel and look sick. So for over two years, I did not feel comfortable in my own skin. This was the weirdest feeling ever after working in the adult industry and having to be comfortable in my own skin because often that was all I had on.
Now, six months after my second breast augmentation surgery, I am finally starting to feel like I look normal. This has been the longest process ever. Just figuring out what was wrong took me two years and not listening to many drs and highly educated professionals. Overall a feeling of gratitude is washing over me finally. Last month I did an extremely intense charcoal detox and this month I am reaping the benefits.
Now my readers will understand my obsession with living a healthy lifestyle. Being healthy is not something I learned to value because it comes easy for me, but because I have had to work really hard to get and maintain a healthy lifestyle. My life has changed in many ways because now I live for the big picture.
