Kennedy Carter: No. I mean, lots of photographers have taken photos of me, but never for anything commercial. I think you can only really call yourself a model if you are getting paid!
No, I have always been really into fashion and I was always very aware that even if I had a face that was suitable to modelling, I would be too short. I think the height restrictions make sense based on the sample sizes that designers use.
I always loved to dance, but last summer Jodie Harsh, a big party promoter in London, contacted me about being in the ads for a new party she was starting, and dancing at the party. Since then I have got to dance at parties in New York, San Francisco, Brussels, and Toronto, it has ben great.
Well I spent a good part of my late teens in clubs dancing with my shirt off, so it wasn't too different!
No not at all. Obviously I have to focus on it because of my job, but I'm under no illusions about it being the most perfect gym in the world.
What is the type of your guy? Would you go for a cute skinny one or you have an exact type you prefer?
I nearly always go for Latin guys, usually at least ten years older, hairy, tattooed, rough looking!
The porn came first. I never really thought I would gogo because I'm not as muscled as most of the guys out there, but once I became better known for doing movies I got booked more and more.
The amount different porn companies pay their models varies hugely, all I will say is I'm getting paid enough to get by!
When I started university I wanted a job that paid well without having to work too many hours so I could focus on my studies, and porn ticked both those boxes. I just off my photos to a few websites and they all responded really positively. I initially worked in Europe and then after filming for Raging Stallion in San Francisco they hired me as an exclusive for a year, which has just ended.
What are your plans now?
Im about to start the third year of my degree, at a university in Mexico City. After graduating in 2012 I want to move to New York permanently to start my Masters.
For sure u remember your first time with a camera. How was it? Were you scared?
It was actually really easy. It was for a German company called Cazzo, and it was a small set up with just the director and one camera man. Also my partner in the scene was new too so we kind of guided each other through it.
Every studio is legally required to get two forms of ID from every model, if models under 18 are used illicitly it is certainly frowned on by the vast majority of the industry.
I wouldn't say there is much preparation, other than avoiding any sexual stimulation for a few days in advance of a shoot. I do think it is just another form of modelling, or acting - you have to be constantly aware of where the camera is, how your body looks from which angles, how much passion you are putting into your performance.
(Laughs) Well the tool takes care of itself, but in terms of my body I work out five times a week, mainly weights with some cardio, and I eat really healthily. Knowing you are going to have a camera pointed at your gut is a really great motivation to put the work in at the gym!
No. I have never worked with anyone I found sexually unattractive, we usually get to check out a model we are going to work out before a shoot. At the end of the day, a shoot is my job and not really about my sexual satisfaction, but about the sexual satisfaction of those people who will watch it - the import_ant thing is to give a good performance.
Things most difficult when it comes to porn?
People misconceptions about our intelligence, morals, or character.
Do you have a boyfriend? Is he in a porn industry as well too?
I have a boyfriend, who lives in NYC, but he does not do porn. He definitely has all the right assets but he is not as much of an exhibitionist as me.
Is it easy to have a relationship being in such an environment?
I guess jealousy can come into it, but as long as you are open and honest most people eventually understand that it is just a job.
SO IT'S LIKE IN THIS JOKE: I AM A WHORE BUT IT'S JUST A JOB - I CAN CHANGE IT, BUT YOU'RE A BITCH - AND THAT'S A CHARACTER.
