My interview with Tristan Taormino at Seduction Insider

NSFW needless to say - my interview with Tristan Taormino from the May 2008 issue of Penthouse Variations is now online at Seduction Insider:

Q: Why do you think it's important to bring an arsenal of toys? Do you do it because you want them in your movies, or just to give them more options?

A: More options. A lot of people still won't shoot vibrators during intercourse because they make noise, which fucks up the sound. Depending on what kind of vibrator it is, like a Hitachi Magic Wand, it covers what we want to see: pussy. So a lot of people just don't use them. I would say 89% of porn stars, when given the option of using a vibrator, will take it.

Q: What do you think you're offering your audience with
Chemistry that's not already out on the market?

A: I strongly believe that the dominant view in the porn industry is that couples and women want feature porn. They want big budget, script, plot-they want it to be a Hollywood movie with hardcore sex. And the truth is, not all women want the same thing. I like gonzo. The problem is, if you go to the video store right now, and if there's a gonzo section, it is likely you're gonna pick up something that's gonna offend a lot of people, because it's degrading, because there's no focus on female pleasure or female orgasm, because there are these circus stunts of "How many things can we put in how many orifices simultaneously?" And people-not just women-go, "That just doesn't turn me on."

My gonzo goes back to the original definition: There's no script, and you allow for spontaneity. I don't need to give them a script; I just want to let them talk. For the behind-the-scenes segments, I find that when I first start interviewing them, they're giving the same bullshit they say in all the behind-the-scenes videos. But then when you make them feel comfortable and they trust you, they say the most outrageous, insane things.
