My Interview with Whack Magazine

Merely a few days after my first column went live on Whack Magazine, my interview has gone live too.  I was lucky enough to get a deluge of questions from the lovely Miss Lagsalot and had the opportunity to give them a lot of thought.  I always love getting interviewed, but that joy is understandably multiplied when the questions are as apt and interesting as hers are.  Here are a few of my favourites:

W! You maintain a healthy distance from the big hub of the industry and the big studios — why?

CC Basically, I’m not a “pornstar” or anything like that.  I shoot with my boyfriend, we do all the shooting and production ourselves and it’s not so much about putting out a product as it’s about doing something we both love.  There’s nothing “industry” about what we do really.

W! I’m really excited about the Art of Blowjob. I’ve watched enough old school porn and enough modern porn to see that the idea of what makes a blowjob sexy has changed drastically since the seventies. Whereas they were once beautiful expressions of sensuality, they now seem to be considered good only if the woman is choked and gagging and drooling uncontrollably on the dick. I’m sure this feels good for the man, but it’s not always fun to watch. How did you decide to take BJs in the more sexy, sensual direction?

CC It’s just what’s natural to me.  It doesn’t feel good for me to have my hair pulled out of my scalp, tears and mucus running down my face and being pushed to the point of nearly vomiting.  That’s not really giving a blowjob…  That’s taking a merciless throat ravaging.  Giving a blowjob requires skill, different sensations, teasing, seduction, varying speeds, use of lips, tongue, throat, cheeks, palms and fingertips, focus on all the parts of the penis, the balls and the surrounding erogenous zones.  It’s wonderful sensual pampering, not just a means to an end.

W! Do you hope to make more men like him by educating their partners about blowjobs? Or are you just getting people off?

CC I really hope so.  I answer my e-mails/comments on blogs/places where I post and I talk to a lot of guys who really want blowjobs.  I try to talk about how they need to appreciate their partner, make them feel special, make sure that everyone’s satisfied and communicate honestly about what they both want.  And then I mention that they should watch some of my videos to get some tips.  If I could make sure that every couple had great sex where everyone felt respected and satisfied, that would be my life’s work right there.

W! The love and chemistry between you and your man really shows in your videos. Do you think chemistry is the most important factor in making good porn?

CC Yes I do.  That’s why I think a lot of mainstream porn doesn’t work.  I’m not saying that the performers have to be madly in love (although that’s nice), but I think they should at least know/like each other and be genuinely attracted to each other.  I’ve read that directors like Tristan Taormino will ask performers who they have crushes on and match them up for shoots.  That’s a really good way to ensure that a scene won’t just be people going through the motions.

She’s very thorough and gave me a lot of opportunity to talk about what I do beyond just how to give a great blowjob.  There are a ton more questions in the full interview, so you should really check it all out.  In fact, as I’ve said before, peruse Whack Magazine in its entirety if you haven’t already gotten the chance.  There are a lot more thoughtful and thorough interviews, reviews and articles.  My thanks to them for the amazing interview and the wonderful opportunity to write more in the future!

My First Column in Whack Magazine

I’m very excited to announce that my first column for Whack Magazine went live on Friday.  I really love the work that Editor-in-Chief Miss Lagsalot is doing, so I’m happy to be involved.  They happen to be posting an interview with me tomorrow, so I’ll definitely share that with you too, but for now I wanted to show a bit of what I said in my first column:

When you think about porn, chances are that “beautiful” doesn’t come to mind. Maybe beautiful women, but the porn itself isn’t likely to be considered as such. In terms of mainstream porn, the industry has come to a place where most releases are very similar. Sure, some may have a story line, some may have a specific fetish and some may even be a parody, but pretty much else stays the same.

From an aesthetic standpoint, the camera work is fairly static, or obnoxiously shaky if it’s made to seem like it’s an amateur production. The sets, the outfits, the make-up, the body types… It’s mostly very homogenous. My bigger complaint comes from the sex, though. It’s so rare that you see a real connection. Frequently the performers lack any sort of spark and it translates into this real vacancy or even deadness in their eyes. I know that most people aren’t paying too much attention to the eyes in porn, but it contributes to the overwhelming feeling that porn is fake.

Granted, there are some very expressive performers out there in the mainstream, the most passionate porn is mostly relegated to the sidelines. Of course, that’s fairly natural. Most mainstream porn consists of two people who don’t know each other too well doing something very intimate for money. Nothing wrong with that, but it turns everything into a performance, largely void of the human aspect that most of us enjoy about sex.

You can moan and grunt all you want, but if there isn’t any chemistry, it’s just going through the motions. Striptease, rough blowjob, a tiny bit of cunnilingus, missionary, doggie-style, reverse cowgirl, and facial. The sex itself can be repetitive, but passion will always bring it to life. Without passion, it seems like it’s on autopilot, and that’s not very sexy. It’s the type of porn you watch alone when you just want to get off quickly, not what you’d watch with a partner if you really wanted to elevate the mood or learn new things.

So, you’ve definitely heard me talk about that a lot, but I go on to talk about how watching this kind of porn effects people and how you can reverse those effects by watching good, realistic porn and learning from it.  Just like with anything you watch or read, you have to be critical and search for what is best for you and your life.  I really hope you’ll read the rest of the article and check out some of the other things they’ve got on their wonderful site.  I’d also love to hear what you think about my first article!
