I am a student at Duke who was outed for doing porn. When I was outed, I came out as a sex positive feminist, to the shock of many.
What prompted you to join the adult industry?
I needed to pay my tuition and I knew that a minimum wage job wouldn’t cut it.
For those that have been living under a rock, you have gained some infamy by being outed as a porn star who was attending Duke at the same time. You were outed by a fellow student. What made you decide to come out and tell your story once this happened?
Whenever there is a sex scandal, particularly among college students, the person at the center of it always hides away in shame or apologizes. I didn’t want to do either. I do not regret my choice to do porn and I was going to fight and defend myself.
As I said, you have gained some notoriety and because of this, you have been doing more scenes, as well as a lot of mainstream exposure. What do you hope to gain as far as all this extra exposure goes?
I hope to have a successful career in the industry and pay my way through college. Beyond that I want to be a feminist voice and academic. Ultimately, I hope to be a lawyer.
Have you thought about getting behind the camera in any way? If so what do you see yourself doing?
Are there any acts that you haven’t done yet that you are looking at possibly doing in the next year or so?
I still haven’t done anal! Im scared to do it because anytime I try it is too painful. Maybe in the future I will.
What would you say is your favorite scene that you have shot is so far?
My favorite scene so far is my scene with Kendra Lust and Logan Pierce for Digital Playground. Kendra is sooo kinky! She got me to do things Ive never done before and it was amazing!
Who would you say your idols are, either in the industry or not?
Sasha Grey and Nina Hartley. I view them as strong sex-positive women who showed the world that the industry can be incredibly empowering to women.
What advice would you give someone who was thinking about getting in the adult industry?
Trust your instincts. If something doesn’t seem right, don’t do it. Also, know your boundaries and stick by them!
Who are some of the people that you really want to work with but haven’t as of yet?
I really want to work with Lisa Ann and the Starr Sisters! Lisa, because I love MILFs. And the sisters because we are friends and they are so sexy and kinky!
What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?
I enjoy writing and running. My new hobby is writing erotica based on stories from my own life.
Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?
My new sex toy line with Doc Johnson will be released soon! Also, I am selling clothes I wore on set on gingerlynnauctions.com
