PARIS KENNEDY INTERVIEW
by Jon of http://elexismonroe.thumblogger.com/
1 Can you tell us something about your background before becoming a model? When did you last eat a light bulb?
Ha! It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten a light bulb! You have done your research! When I was 17 I REALLY wanted to be in the circus, specifically Cirque Du Soleil, but sadly, I was too old to start acrobatics, at least at that level. So in learning about the circus I came across the world of Sideshows. Here were people who did scary things and hurt themselves for the entertainment of others. I thought, “I can do that!”. I found a mentor who then had a troupe and he took me under his wing. I learned light bulb eating, bed of nails, glass walking, straight jacket escape and fire eating/breathing. I think my whole sideshow career lasted about two years and then I found other ways to hurt myself for the entertainment of others.
2 Is Paris Kennedy your real name? If not how did you choose it?
Haha. Nope….let’s see, I picked “Paris” when I got my first job in the sex industry, working as a professional submissive in a Los Angeles dungeon. They told me I needed to pick a name on the spot and I always wanted to go to Paris, so I just said “Paris!” I didn’t pick my last name until much later when I got into porn. My agent said I needed a last name because this was right around the time Paris Hilton became famous. I was reading a biography of Jackie Kennedy at the time, so I said “Kennedy!” I didn’t put much thought into it.
3 Has anyone ever told you that you look like Madonna or Gillian Anderson from the X Files?
I have heard Madonna lots, never Gillian Anderson though. I hear all kinds of weird celebrity comparisons.
4 What is it that you like about the pin-up style of modeling?
I love the lifestyle, tattoos, the clothes, 1950′s culture, Rockabilly music. I always thought I was born in the wrong time. I don’t really fit in here, but I always loved vintage clothing and styles, specifically 1940′s-50′s. If you look at my old high-school pictures, all I wore was vintage clothing. I think I’ve become lazy or just more comfortable with myself, I don’t dress-up 24/7 like I use to. Now it’s more of a treat and I appreciate it more.
5. Can you tell us about your tattoos? Does it cause problems getting work?
I always knew I wanted a lot of tattoos but I had to hold off because of my career. Every agent, photographer told me “wait, wait”. So I did. And I think it was smart for my market, I was playing the “girl-next-door”, sweet, innocent college-girl types. Then one day I said to myself ” You are in your late 20′s now, you have played that role for YEARS……time to try something new!” So I finally started getting tattooed, and yes it closes me out of a lot of markets but I knew that would happen, I was prepared for it. I needed a new direction. And now where there are doors closing, there are other doors opening that I wouldn’t have had a chance before. It’s exciting, like being a new model again!
6 What’s a typical week in terms of scenes and shoots? Is it difficult to change between the demands of the different genres?
I try to balance my time well, but I always bitch that I need an assistant, LOL. As far as changing between genres, I have always credited myself as very easily adaptable. I can be one person one minute and someone else the next. Just ask my exes!
7 Can you tell us about your different sites and the content people can find there?
Yes! Well for my own, exclusive hardcore content ( always with a fetish twist) I have my main site www.pariskennedy.com. Then I produce science-fiction inspired fetish movies with my partner Alex Bettinger on www.sciencefictionfetish.com. That’s where you can find “Slayer Paris” my “Buffy-inspired” series, and my super-heroine site www.superheroineworld.com. Alex and I also produce combat/action/kung-fu fetish films together and you can find those at www.combatfetish.com I have also started my own hardcore feature film company, Crazy Heart Entertainment, where I will be shooting action movies similar to my fetish ones, except feature length and with hardcore sex. My first film with that company is in production and will debut in October. It’s called “The Lesbian Warriors of Zera”.
8 How did you meet Clare Fonda and Chelsea Pfieffer? What do you like about working with them?
I met Clare Fonda at the BDSM dungeon I worked at in Los Angeles, The Chateau. Her and I were both the most innocent-looking girls there and were both top earners for the club. We hit it off right away and I guess she kind of took me under her wing. She already had her spanking video company and I loved being spanked and really any kind of pain. She was the first producer to ever shoot me on video. I met Chelsea Pfieffer through Clare, and Chelsea was the second fetish company I ever shot for. They are both awesome women who truly LOVE what they do. They are the real deals! Clare Fonda is still one of my best friends today and we have stayed close all these years. She is family, I would take a bullet for her.
9 I saw that you were on a diapers site. Are fun and role playing important elements for you in the fetish lifestyle?
Oh yes, I am all about role play. I am not a big fan of gonzo, or reality porn, I want fantasy! I want to dress up in crazy outfits and have sexual adventures! Role play is the foundation for all of my product. I want to escape and be a different person every time! That’s what turns *me* on. And I always had a talent for “becoming” my character. I commit 100%, even in private, sexual role plays.
10 This is your third year as Guest of Honor at Fetish Con. What do you like about it?
I LOVE Fetish-Con. I love the event. I love the people who run it, all the people involved. I am very proud to be a part of it. Fetish-Con is definitely my #1 favorite event of the year. It really is like a 5 day fantasy escape. But mostly, it’s a chance to see all of my friends, who live all over the country, together in one place!
11 What are your favorite fetish clothes and why?
I go through phases. I definitely had my latex phase, I have many custom pieces. I love spandex and lycra, especially for the super-heroine genre. I am WAY into girdles….especially with vintage stockings. I love the restrictive feel. Though I must say, lately I have been really getting into leather! I love finding it in non-typical colors, like pink!
12 If you could design a range of fetish gear or sex toys which would you choose and what would it be?
If I had my own BDSM toy line everything would be super girly….lacy, frilly, glittery and PINK! I love taking naughty/scary/harsh things and making them uber-feminine.
13 Who are your favorite performers to work with and who would you like to work with?
I love to work with my friends honestly! I love to fuck my friends, LOL. Dia Zerva, Ashley Edmonds, Kaci Starr, Patrick J. Knight, Jack Lawrence, Sarah Blake, Alec Knight, Lani Brooke, Christina Carter, Anastasia Pierce to name a few.
My porn crush right now is Bree Olson, I watched a video of hers for the first time the other day and got off so fast. That girl has that special “it”. Would love to hit that! I have a new porn crush every week though, my imagination is a whore.
14 Which directors and companies would you like to work for?
I would love to work for Wicked or Burning Angel.
14 I loved your scene with Ashley Edmonds for Bellezza. What was it like working with her and Omar?
Thanks! Ashley Edmonds is a close friend, I love that girl with all my heart. That is one down, and dirty chick. Another “real-deal” chick. I always love working with her, we have great chemistry on camera! Omar is a cool guy, haven’t talked to him in years, but he was always very easy to work for. He had a vision and he stuck with it!
15 You’ve started making features. Will Paris be the new Belladonna?
Yes, features! Yay for narratives!….I think Belladonna and I have a very different product, but i’d be flattered to be compared in any way, she is amazing, a true pioneer and visionary. A true “porn-STAR”.
16 What do you like about female wrestling?
Rubbing up against hot chicks…haha…..honestly, I really like losing by women who really know how to wrestle, I love being thrown around the mat and put in cool holds. It’s a rush! I’m a true “jobber”. I’m really good at losing! It’s an art in itself, haha. And i’m limber and bendy.
17 You love dancing have you ever considered doing Burlesque?
I’d love to but i’m really REALLY clumsy! I was never a stripper……on camera I feel 100% at home. But on stage….I have terrible stage fright!!!
18 Which fears do you still have to overcome?
I guess my fear of stage-fight since we are talking about it! I always thought I should try stripping just to get over my fear of being on stage!
19 What do you like to write and have you ever had anything published.
I love to write, mostly short stories. One of my goals is to finish my novel and have that published. Look out for that!
