INTERVIEW: Porn Star Betty Blac

Hi Betty! First thing we’re all wondering, how did you get into porn?

Being in porn was something I fantasized about for years. I wanted to dip my toes in first before taking the plunge into a career that most people have misperceptions about. I realize now that I had misperceptions too. My view was based on the indie local porn I’d seen and projections of mainstream porn I’d seen in the media.

It was like an adventure. I wanted to see if I could still be a sex positive feminist and a mainstream porn star. I wrote about my experiences venturing into nude modelling with local photographers and artists on playpenreport.com. I shot with local semi professional photographers and detailed every triumph and pitfall. Things got serious when The Score Group contacted me to shoot in Miami. I went from lingerie shoots in random hotels and studios for trade to having sex on camera, this was the big leagues. I shot three scenes for The Score Group for their site XLGirls. I knew there was a smaller market for BBW stars, but I wanted to work with the major companies that had a better reputation and a classier style. Sensational Video AKA Plumper Pass was also in Miami so I booked a shoot with them next. Three days, four dicks. I came home with money and hungry for more.

Did you have any reservations when you first started out?

I did, It had been a challenge to have people see me as more than a sex object in my dating life even before porn. I knew that my decision would make this worse. The people who saw me as just tits and a pussy would increase substantially once it was all available for download. But I knew that there were like-minded sexual beings out there. I had some concern about what my family and friends would think. They accept and love me regardless of what I do.

Porn has its upsides. On days when I’m feeling a little down I remind myself that thousands of people have cum thinking about me. Plus the exhibitionist in me enjoys performing. I love interacting with fans. I love that I have fans, that is funny to me. I love the impact that being out there and proud of who I am has on others. I like that despite being different I have fiscal confirmation that I am desirable. I’ll admit money is also a motivator.

What does being a BBW mean to you?

I use the label BBW but it kind of drives me nuts. It’s the category I’m in according to porn because porn likes to put people into boxes. It literally means big beautiful woman. It’s funny that I can’t just be a beautiful woman. The term is equivalent to saying “hey you’re cute for a fat girl.”

Has your perception of porn changed now?

A bit, in some ways it’s better. I know for sure it’s not just some seedy underbelly. I’m still normal. I work in retail at an adult boutique and I webcam. I do porn every once in awhile but not everyday.

What are some of the most common questions you receive from fans?

Are my orgasms real? – Sometimes.
Do I need big cocks now? – No.
Will I have sex with them? – Also no.

Any common myths or misconceptions about porn that you’d like to dispel?

I’m eager to dispel the myth that porn stars are idiots. I know many performers with advanced degrees. With so much competition porn stars need to be clever and figure out ways to remain vital. Porn stars are regular people who happen to have sex on film for money.

You’re the only BBW star on webcam at kink.com, what are your kinks?

I haven’t explored many of my kinks on cam. I really enjoy prostate play. I’d love to peg (use a strap-on on) a guy on film. I’m a switch, I like being tied up but I could get into tying someone else up too. I once put a tablecloth over a submissive and ate my dinner off his back. I enjoy the opportunity porn gives me to try new things.

What’s your favorite sex toy?

The Hitachi Magic Wand (aka Original Magic Wand). It always gets the job done.

Is there anyone in the industry you’re dying to work with?

Christian XXX

What’s coming up next?

I’m excited about an upcoming scene for Trouble Films: Lesbian Curves with Kitty Stryker. I’ll also be attending BBW Fanfest in Vegas in July and I’m looking forward to connecting with fans and others in the industry.

Where can we find you?

Thanks so much!
