I haven’t posted an interview in a while because I didn’t want to give you Camille fatigue. I certainly don’t want this blog to be a forum for me to congratulate myself all of the time… But, this is a pretty cool interview, which just happens to be for Sex.com. That’s a pretty big deal and it’s so cool that they’re so nuanced in what they asked me. It’s not your average interview, to be sure.
I thought I’d share a few of my favourite questions, all of which actually made me think:
What’s your opinion on this new(ish) genre, “couples porn”? Do you and Mike take credit for the style? (Because it does seem like “couples porn” is biting your style.)
I feel like “couples porn” is more about making porn for couples and less about being real couples making porn. What we make is definitely appropriate for couples, but also for single people… We have a really diverse audience and we don’t want to limit or target them specifically. We’re just doing what we love and we’re lucky that a lot of people really like it!
Though it’s time consuming, would you still want to run your websites and perform in scenes if it wasn’t such an independent operation?
Probably not. The reason we love what we do is that we have control over it. I don’t want to feel pressured to be aroused on command so I can shoot when I’m not in the mood. I don’t want to be coerced into showing more than I want to show or doing things that I don’t to do just because of what they think sells.
I’m so much happier shooting at home with my boyfriend and then going out for lunch after. It’s a relaxed approach that makes the results much more erotic.
How much input do you have in the editing/filming of the scenes? Is it mostly Mike Flirt or is it a collaborative effort between the two of you? (FYI, Mike Flirt is Camille’s partner.)
We’re always quite collaborative. I tend to edit the photos while he edits the videos, but we certainly talk through things and bounce ideas off each other. We like to do things together.
I hope you liked the questions. Sex.com is fairly new with the blog (only since mid-2012) but I think it’s coming along nicely, and I’m very honoured to be their second ever interview!
