HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
I've always had a kinky interest since first seeing Tim Burton's version of Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer), in Batman Returns, at a very young age (perhaps as young as 3). As I was introduced to each adaptation throughout my life, specifically Batman of the 1960s, (Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, and Earth Kitt) my kink only grew stronger. I knew I wanted to be her when I grew up, and I have accomplished that dream! She was my ideal vision of a woman; in aesthetic and demeanor. She was strong, sexy, and encased in shiny, tight, form-fitting clothing which extremely accentuated all of her feminine curves. My partner Xris SMack! bought me my first rubber dress at age 19, for my very first large fetish event, SMack! (http://SMack-Fetish.com) and I have been wearing daily it ever since.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
Yes! I am a lifestyle rubber-latex fetishist and wear it 4 to 5 days a week with my partner, and I make many of my own outfits. I was trained by Nemy of latexnemesis.com and I currently work for Kirsten of kirstenlidesigns.com, so I have a very full blown latex lifestyle!
ARE THERE ANY FETISHES THAT YOU DON'T FIND APPEALING?
I find all fetishes appealing in some way - especially if you have the right partner to connect with. I find the only thing that I am adverse to from time to time is feet. Except my own! I definitely fetishize my own feet quite often, and I enjoy it when others do so as well. :)
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT FETISH MODELING?
Authentically fulfilling my fetish, and working with artists and designers who are exceptionally creative and like-minded. ;)
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
The classic catsuit! Especially with a tight-laced rubber corset. I also love to layer translucent Cuban stockings, with a garter belt, and high heeled pumps.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
Absolutely! I was shot for V Magazine's V77 Ke$ha "The Americana Issue" in 2012 for Michael Schwartz's Cyber in the City editorial, and I have seen fetish, specifically latex and pin-up couture, blossom into the mainstream more than ever. I also got a phone call shortly after that issue to work on Mariah Carey's personal wardrobe at her home, and had my work featured in her music video “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)” ft. Rick Ross, and Meek Mill. Pop stars love latex!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I have a wide range of tastes! Industrial rock, metal, extreme metal, goth, alternative, classic rap and hip-hop, drum 'n bass, electro, and many other variations and multiple sub-genres that fall under rock and electronic music. My tastes change constantly and I'm always open and interested in listening and creating new music.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Aside from modeling, I've also appeared in music videos (like Angelspit's "Pretty Dead Boys") and remixes ("Pretty Dead Boys (Ashley Bad + Xris SMack! remix)" released on Angelspit's The RECALL" http://angelspit.net).
Occasionally I am also a Girl of Karen Black - performing with on stage with renowned performance artist, filmmaker, and lead singer of the cult glam-punk band The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, Kembra Pfahler.
I'm also the Hostess and Fashion coordinator of NYC’s Longest Running Premier Multimedia Fetish Play Party, SMack! (http://SMack-fetish.com), running biannually, and it’s monthly, music-fetish fusion, sister event STIMULATE (http://STIMULATE-me.com).
