You're someone who could obviously model in a number of other mediums, have you ever?
YES! I have been featured everywhere from music videos for pop, hip hop, metal and even pop performers. I shoot regularly for a number of alternative and mainstream clothing labels and clothing stores which is fun because I have a background in fashion design and love filling beautiful clothing and making it come to life. I am "the face of" a luxury lifestyle forum called Luxury4Play.com (so I am featured modeling with a lot of high end luxury cars, boats, watches, etc.). Recently I was on the cover of LA Weekly - which was pretty awesome for me! I shoot love doing a variety of work because it feels like I am leading a double life, like a super hero!
And what keeps you coming back to fetish modeling?
The concept of fetish keeps new doors opening daily. My goal with TheDangerDoll.com was to explore my own sexuality and erotica without going the direct hardcore rout. Utilizing different fetishes, I can explore new sensory activities that don't necessarily require "traditional" methods of release. Every time I participate in a new fetish activity it seems to lead into another area of play. I also feel that there is always a new way to express different fetish fantasies while in reality there are really only so many ways to "just fuck" or whatever. Shooting these themes is play time for me - not like other modeling which is usually all business.
Are there any aspects of fetish modeling you don't enjoy?
As much as I may be having a delightful time or personal experience while shooting, if I am shooting for someone other than myself and the photographer or producer of the shoot is a fetishist who is getting distracted by the content of our shoot I find it very unprofessional and irritating. Shoots are not sessions for photographer and model - at least not when shooting with me. I am a performer, not a pro domme or mistress so I will not play the part purely for a photographer’s amusement although I will happily recommend a friend of mine who would ha-ha!
Do you think fetishism and sex and intrinsically connected, or can they be separate?
I think people are trying to separate them in some ways. Between corsets and latex becoming a "fashion statement" or the fact that Lady Gaga wears Zenati suits regularly definitely separates some fetishism from the sex although I am sure that Lady Gaga is getting unsolicited wankers thanks to her Zenati outfits
What advice would you give to someone who is new to the scene?
Enjoy yourself, be safe, and never say never ... well maybe not never ;)
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
I will always consider myself a writer, a painter and illustrator and well, I used to be a fashion designer. I would honestly love to get back into designing by designing my own latex costuming ... I have worked with several designers to create my own kinky costumes for home, photo and video shoots as well as my burlesque performances. I really would like to get back to a lot of this now that my sites are stable and can pretty much run themselves. I know I will be doing live stage performances a lot more in 2011 so be on the lookout for news of my burlesque and aerial acts!
Read any good books lately?
Always, I am an avid reader of a wide variety of books I actually just finished rereading an anthology - one of my favorites in a series - The Outlaw Bible of American Literature (the others are; The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry and The Outlaw Bible of American Essays) It really inspired me as a youth who wrote about fucked up and weird shit to read others' odd, kinky, fucked up stories written honestly or romanticized I find such beauty in their dirty words. If you are someone who lives off the beaten path, and always open to be enlightened by diversity, I highly recommend all of those. Next on my list to read is Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk - I am a big fan of his and this is probably the only book of his I have yet to read.
