My name is Carmen Valentina, Ive been in the adult industry for 8 years, since I was 22. Now I’m 30 and getting naughty in the Milf categories in porn. I always wanted to get into porn, but I was always chicken shit and didn’t get the guts until answering a Craigslist ad that were looking for “models” for solos. At the time I was in college, on my summer break working as a blackjack dealer and I was looking for another job that paid more money before I headed back to Florida for my junior year in college.
What prompted you to join the adult industry?
Porn was always something I thought about getting into when I was in high school, but when I was in high school, it was more of a joke among friends. I was a nerdy girl, and barely had any guys that were interested in me, so I would joke that one day I would be in porn. I had normal jobs before I got into porn such as; lifeguard, parks and rec assistant office manager, caricature artist, blackjack dealer, concierge. But it wasn’t till I was back during the summer break looking for a job to make money before I headed back to school. I was 22 at the time, and saw an ad that intrigued me and wrote them back. I was so nervous when I went in, but after the first solo I was already a pro! It was amazing, and I haven’t stopped doing porn since then.
Seeing that you have been part of the industry for a while now what would you say is the biggest difference between now and when you started?
My insecurities. Back then, I kept trying to compare myself to these unrealistic standards of other porn models. I learned to just be the best version of me, and not some other chick. I understand that not every man will find me desirable, and to just focus on the ones that do love me. When I have haters, I usually just use the block button on twitter, and not to get that worked up about it.
What are some of the sex acts you are hoping to do in the industry in the near future?
Possibly, Double Vag. I’m not an anal girl, so fans looking for that from me are gonna have to keep dreaming. Most of my fans know how much I hate hate hate anal, and how painful it feels. Some girls like it, but I’m definitely not one of them.
What would be your advice be for someone who is thinking about getting into the adult industry?
If you’re a girl with that next door look with few/no tattoos, DON’T get more tattoos. Wait until you’re finished with the industry or at the end of your career to get the tattoos. I’ve seen lots of girls lose booking cause of their tattoos.
Also, save your money! You never know when you will have a slow month. Don’t go crazy and buy expensive purses or spend it on partying. Look into more avenues for making money such as camming or filming customs for fans, so you’re not one of those girls starting a gofund me cause you weren’t smart enough to budget your living expenses properly.
What would you say is your favorite scene so far?
My DogFart.com Blacks on Blondes scene was my favorite. It was my first gangbang, and everyone was amazing. From the Director, PA, all the talent and the owner, everyone was so kind and professional and they made the day amazing.
If money wasn’t an issue, what would be your dream scene or movie to make?
I want to make a G.L.O.W. (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) porno. I think it would be so much fun. After seeing the Netflix take on it, I think a porn version would be a great seller. Plus I do a lot of fetish wrestling here in Florida, and its always a fun time!
Who would you say are the people you really want to work with but haven’t had the chance to as of yet?
I’ve always wanted to work with Jules Jordan, his stuff is always shot so well. Hopefully one day.
Who would you say your idols are, either within the industry or not?
Kendra Lust and Vicky Vette. They are two powerful women who built successful businesses and careers. They are both kind to everyone they meet and help everyone around them, no matter what kind of person they are. They are both amazing!
If you could have a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?
Hmmm……..I don’t have anyone in mind right now. Currently, I’m not curious in anything yet but that always changes.
What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?
I love love love to oil paint! I haven’t done much lately because Ive been so busy, but not many people know I have a bachelor in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design. I also play my guitar every occasionally. In high school, I was in Varsity guitar, so when I get bored, I’ll grab my guitar and freshen up my skills.
Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?
Yes! Ill be featuring in Pompano Beach, FL next week on December 13th at the Cheetah Club for their Christmas Party. I’ll also be at AVN as well, that so happens to be on my birthday January 26th. So if there are any fans out there that want to come and see me, please bring some cupcakes for me!
