Pet of the Month December 2017

What have you learned from the adult industry? There’s a big misconception, culturally speaking, when it comes to women and their sexuality. We’re supposed to be passive and just take it. We can’t actively seek out sex without a stigma following us. I see the adult industry as a great outlet for women who want to explore promiscuity, different sex acts, or voyeurism. It’s a safe environment to sexually express yourself.
We’ve always looked at porn as a form of art, or entertainment. But for a lot of people, the puritanical instinct kicks in when they think of porn. Sex is a physical necessity. When a man stops having sex his brain activity and testosterone plummets. His body deteriorates. To be mentally sharp and physically healthy you should have a happy sex life. You wouldn’t apologize for drinking a glass of water when you’re thirsty. Why are we apologizing for having sex? It’s a real human need. As for the entertainment aspect, people have trouble disconnecting adult actors from their roles. If I saw Matt Damon in a car at a stoplight, I wouldn’t start some Bourne Identity chase with him. That’s just a role he played. Many people see adult stars as one-dimensional.
People are idiots. Speaking of idiots, why did you want to be a therapist? I’ve always been the kind of person people open up to. I’ve always attracted people who need to vent about their problems. I’m the rock of my family. Everyone comes to me when they need advice. I enjoy helping people. I’m fascinated with human behavior.
How did your family take you being in the adult industry? My mom wasn’t happy at first. She found out when I was only doing [lesbian] scenes. She lost her mind a bit. Then she slowly came around and was ironically more supportive when I started doing boy-girl scenes. She’s got her own insecurities. I don’t think she liked me becoming a sex symbol.
Let’s play “Fuck, Marry, Kill,” because it’s our favorite game here at Penthouse. I would fuck the Rock. He’s like a giant mountain I want to climb. I’d marry Ryan Reynolds because he’s amazing, and I would kill Samuel L. Jackson because I can’t stand his over-the-top acting and when I see his credit card commercials I want to scream.
