You ready for more questions? Today, I picked out two questions, which fit together well enough to make up a blog post together:
Well I guess, if there is a question that I’ve pondered, it’s always been “how does it all begin? How does someone discover their talent for ‘the art of blowjob’ and how does it morph into a dedicated career?”…..think it has to be a fascinating story from start to finish. (GJ)
Has anyone ever recognized you on the street?
How does being an erotic artist (and running TAoBJ) affect your relationship with friends and family?
Any tips for couples who would like to start filming their own romp for personal viewing? (Alice)
I’ll start with the first question. How did I find out that I had the blowjob aptitude? Honestly, it didn’t really hit until I was dating Mike. Obviously, I gave blowjobs before him, but it was always just part of sex, which I enjoyed enough, but not something with the amazing spark and passion that brought me to want to make it a huge part of my life. I guess it’s a lot about the fact that I met the right person. It’s not that our sex life is entirely blowjob-centric, but I have such a huge urge to please him and to be really great at what I do, probably because he’s the same way in return. We decided to go with blowjobs for the site because that’s the best niche to shoot and to revolutionize (which holds true) but it really could have been any aspect of sex in that we’re both so passionate in our lives.
For the other question or line of questions… I’ve never been recognized on the street outright. I have had a few looks that indicated that the person probably knew who I was, but no one has ever come up to me and asked if it was me. I don’t know how I’d react if they did. It would be a very surreal experience. Even though I’m very open with what I do and who I am, being “known” has never crossed into my non-online life.
My erotic job doesn’t effect too much with my life. I had some issues with family members who didn’t understand what I do, but there’s always going to be someone who doesn’t get it. Asides from that, those who are in my life have been very supportive and frankly impressed at everything we’re doing. It’s more than just making porn. We’re business owners, entrepreneurs and we’re doing something out of the ordinary.
If I were to give any advice to a couple thinking of getting into the adult industry, I would just advise them to think about the balance between professional and amateur stuff. If you’re going to do amateur stuff, that’s fine, but make sure it won’t interfere with your work life. If you actually want to make your career in the adult world, just know that you’re going to really need to put something out there that’s spectacular and different, otherwise people are liable to look the other way. It’s a risky venture, so make sure you either put in the effort so it pays off, or keep your faces/other distinguishing features off camera. Asides from that, enjoy! ;)
