ADDIE JUNIPER INTERVIEW
The Sweeter The Berry

Addie Juniper sounds like the name of a goody two shoes. This Addie though knows what she likes and it’s kinky. Fetish. She make it. She takes it. She never fakes it.
1 Can you tell us a little about your background ?
I’m from the suburbs of Atlanta, but now I live in the city. I was in college doing odd jobs like waitressing and delivering pizzas before I got into the industry. I’ve always loved acting, writing, and singing and I’ve always been a bit of an oddball. But we all are in this industry.
2 How did you get into the fetish world ?
I became friends with a computer geek guy who worked at the pizza place with me. He suggested that I do a girly mainstream solo site and that he run it and we split the profits. At first, I was very skeptical, but after some thought, I decided that I should just go for it! When he backed out, I decided to find someone else to help me. I went through a couple other people who screwed me over and in that process, I was building a portfolio of pictures to show people what I looked like. The portfolio got me paying glamour and art-related modeling work, which led to fetish modeling (which I was much more interested in). I had to get drunk during my first bondage shoot, I was so nervous! But then I grew to love this crazy world.
3 What was your family’s reaction when you told them about the scenes you appeared in?
At first, I told my mother that I was doing some art modeling. She hated it, knowing that I was posing nude. Because of her negative reaction, I didn’t tell her that it went any further until she and my sister came across some of my more “explicit” work on the internet. They were both pretty upset, as was my dad when he found out. It’s been years now, so they’ve just come to accept it, realizing that they can’t do anything about it and want to continue to have a relationship with me. So it’s just something we don’t talk about much.
4 How did you choose the name Addie Juniper?
I wrote a story when I was little using the name “Addie” as one of the characters. It was always a name I liked. When thinking of a last name, I was walking along a street in Atlanta and came to an intersection. I looked up and the street sign said, “Juniper St.”. I thought it sounded good together, so my name was born!
5 How did you meet your partner Psymon and why did you decide to create Brainwash Productions?
He put an ad on a website looking for models to bust him in the balls for a website that he wanted to start. I was the first model he hired! We hit it off immediately and decided to go into business together.
6 Can you tell us about the sites you’ve created and their content?
Our only membership site at the moment is http://www.TickleChicks.com, featuring tickling fetish content. There is also a Clips4Sale of the same name. We also have about 13 other Clips4Sale stores, our main one, of course, being our ballbusting store – http://www.BallBustShow.com. We are still working on putting up my membership site (http://www.AddieJuniper.com), as well as a few other adult hardcore sites. Expect lots from us in the near future!
7 What are the best and worst things about running your own company?
Best – Not having to go into a job everyday and work for someone else! Duh! I enjoy creating the content and editing and the thrill of directly making money from something I created. The models are a lot of fun (usually) and I get to travel a ton! I’ve met a lot of like-minded people; people I can actually relate to, so that’s really cool. It’s the best thing I’ve ever gotten into.
Worst – I guess, the stigma attached to it in some circles can be annoying. Especially family dealings. They either think I’m a loser because I can’t tell them what is really going on with my life, so they assume that NOTHING is going on or if I do tell them, they think I’m some kind of freak. It really sucks. But it’s definitely worth all the crap.
8 If you had to pick a favourite fetish which would it be and why?
I’m pretty well-rounded. I’m really into ballbusting, tickling, superheroine stuff and acting like a puppy. (Check out
http://www.PuppySluts.com). I’ve recently begun to enjoy giving lap dances since I’ve gotten better at them (http://www.FullContactLapdances.com). I also love getting spanked. I like to mix it up. That’s why we shoot so many different things.
9 Which fetishes haven’t you tried that you’d like to try and why?
Gosh, I think I’ve tried every fetish that I’ve wanted to try! But maybe someday someone will surprise me.
10 If you could design your own range of fetish gear or sex toys which would they be and why?
I’d make good, solid bondage furniture that can be used for tickling that is AFFORDABLE. It’s all so freakin’ expensive!
11 Which awards have you won and which is the most special to you?
I won The Golden Feather Award (Best Ticklee Model) 2008 on The Tickling Media Forum. Uh..I think that’s the only thing I’ve won, but it was very special to me to know that so many fans voted for me.
12 Which companies and which directors would you like to work with in the future?
I’d really like to be in Hustler; the regular one or the Taboo version. I just think they’re a really cool company. Hmm…I guess more ballbusting companies? There aren’t too many out there. And I always love to get tickled by as many different companies as possible! It’s cool when someone finds a new tickle spot that I wasn’t aware of.
13 What’s your favourite convention and why?
FetishCon! By a long shot. It’s SO industry. I get to see all my friends in one place, get tons of content and party my ass off! It’s such a blast.
14 What’s been the highlight of your modeling career and why?
I don’t think I’ve reached the highlight yet! But I’m more looking forward to the upcoming highlights of my producing career.
15 You’re a student as well as a performer. What are you studying and how do you manage to fit this into a busy schedule?
Sometimes, I am. When I’m good and actual register. I take classes I’m interested in. I know that I should have more of a plan, but that’s what I feel like doing right now. For example, this year, I took computer science and Spanish. Just things I wanted to learn and brush up on.
16 You’ve had the acting bug from a very young age. What types of plays or films would you like to appear in?
How did you know that? I’d love to do more plays. I’ve really missed that. I’d like to be in some really crazy, sexual shit. Live performances are so much fun. And films are great, too, I’m always down for some more mainstream stuff, as far as that goes.
17 Why do you want to open your own theatre?
Gosh, you do your research! I’ve just always loved both theatre and business, so I think that would be a good fit for me. I want to keep live theatre alive, so yes, that is one of my goals for the future. But don’t worry, I won’t be putting on big cash cow shows like Annie or The Sound of Music. Only really good, quirky stuff.
18 What do you like to write and have you had anything published?
Hmm…can’t really answer that. I kind of just write down whatever pops into my head. It’s hard to judge your own “style”, ya know what I mean? But yes, I get a great deal of joy out of writing something I’m really proud of. So, yeah, I hope to get something published one day.
19 What do you like about watching adult swim shows and what else do you like to do in your spare time?
Ha ha! TV has gotten so good in the past few years that I don’t just watch adult swim shows anymore! A lot of them kind of suck, actually, but I’ve always loved Futurama, Home Movies. you know, the ones that they discontinued. But as far as TV goes, I’ve gotten into a lot of really good stuff – True Blood, Being Human, Breaking Bad, East Bound and Down, Penn and Teller’s Bullshit, etc.
Spare time?! What spare time? I’m pretty much always editing videos!
20 Where can people find you on the net?
Should I just start spewing out links? Ok.
