HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
I guess I can trace it back to about 15, I was surfing the Suicide Girls website almost every day looking for new, kinky images. Once I found out you can get a corset pierced into you, I was hooked (no pun intended)...I'm also bisexual, so that comes into play a lot in the fetish/bdsm scene, but ultimately it was the aesthetic (the look and feel of latex, chains, etc.) that got me interested and wanting to play a bit. My first photo shoot was offered to me through the website FetLife.com, and one of the photos that came from that shoot remains my most viewed on Model Mayhem.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
I'm into a lot of sensory deprivation, like being choked or blindfolded, and also into a lot of extreme sensory stimulation like piercing, getting smacked around and getting tied or cuffed up. The rush from the stimulation is incredible and goes nicely with a rubdown right afterwards. Dressing up and denying pleasure while looking so damn good gets me off too. As well as receiving, I can deliver happily. Threesomes are a ton of fun if you have the right setting and partners. I have yet to be involved in a play party, sex or play with strangers is something I may fantasize about from time to time but ultimately can be dangerous, you never know.
ARE THERE ANY FETISHES THAT YOU DON'T FIND APPEALING?
Anything that has to do with fecal matter or other bodily excrement that is NOT naturally occurring in the act of intercourse, I am NOT down with, so *please* do not ask me to piss on you. Seriously. I do have a bit of a thing for blood, however...
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT FETISH MODELING?
Having new, shmexy things to wear in photo shoots! I've done a fair bit of nude modeling, which doesn't really qualify itself as "Fetish" to me anymore. I think fetish modeling is about what you don't show, and the taboo emotions you do show in your facial expressions, poses, etc.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Sexy, wild, and put-together at the same time. I love latex, chain mail, corsets, fishnets, bodysuits, sky-high heels and theatrical stuff that flows and ruffles and drapes nicely with the female form. I also have a thing for stuff that looks like fetish versions of hospital wear, etc. On the flip side, I have a real love of Guess-style denim and that whole "Americana" ideal.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Things that don't fit well. Many things can fall into that category, but I'm mostly responsible for styling myself, so that doesn't happen often.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I think most people's looks can be improved through a little ink therapy. Not only that, but once you get a tattoo, it's true what they say, the feeling is addictive. It's a form of self-expression that can be done amazingly well and with tons of creativity, but it's also fun to look at the tragedies that come out of it, like tattooing some website across your forehead, for example.
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
Yes, absolutely. There's such a huge resurgence of retro pinup styling, but what's really amazing is that all the alternative and fetish creativity that's spawned from the newer generations works really well partnered up with the vintage style of the past. I hardly know anyone that can honestly say they don't find something about the pinup/fetish scene at least a LITTLE interesting, and worth talking about. Where I'm from, the whole alternative scene IS the mainstream in a lot of ways.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
The good kind. I'm diverse, so I can be jamming to Hank Williams at a party one night and Lady Gaga another. I love electronica and rock equally. I really adore female artists like Joan Jett, Bjork, and Fiona Apple. My all-time favorites include Type O Negative, Nine Inch Nails, and The Cure.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I like to go out dancing, get in a little trouble, and knock back beers with my friends. I'm a pretty chill person, I can find the fun in most situations. ;)
