I arrive at the SF location 10 minutes early of course. Apparently the clock on my phone is 10 minutes ahead and I'm more or less early to everything anyways, so I get to the Crash Pad shoot with more than enough time to take in my new surroundings, learn the names of the people filming, and finish getting myself ready. Its early in the morning (OK, only a little before 10 am-an ungodly hour for a stripper) and usually not my sexy time, but I'm so incredibly stoked to be participating in the shoot.
Rosebud Siouxsie, my friend and scene partner, arrives shortly after and we briefly run through how we want to look in the scene and the actions. We are a ridiculous pair in general and thrown into this even more ridiculous surreal experience of getting paid to dress up and fuck just exasperates these qualities. The dressing area is a fury of tutus and grannie sweaters, red and pink lipstick, dildos, and stockings, the perfect setting to decide that in this scene we are going to mimic the good girl/bad girl version of each other. Both being curvy Jewish white girls with dark hair and bangs this isn't too much of a leap.
"Is the rosary too much?" Siouxsie asks at one point, to which I reply yes. "Then its staying on."
Donned in bows, pink tutu, and braces I fill the role of the good girl blindfolded and led unknowingly into a bedroom by my bad girl doppelganger, presumably to be taught how to be like her. Ordering me to the bed the scene begins, with me being a rather silent and lost bottom, a phenomenon I hadn't expected to occur. Don't get me wrong the scene was hot and my co-star even hotter, but I can't act to save my own life, at least not in this role.
Thankfully we had planned on switching roles halfway through the shoot, conspiring that my character would teach Siouxsie a thing or two after my initial corruption. THIS toppy (yes, I'm creating an adjective here) and dominant persona just appeared out of nowhere and I somehow ended up being even meaner and domineering than her bad girl persona, mimicking and making fun of her noises, telling her to gag on her dildo, and ....well, the rest you'll just have to see.
After finishing the scene we proceeded to gossip and giggle like little girls, completely baffling the amazing film crew, somehow not even blinking at the explicit actions we just performed or the unusual environment. Crash Pad always conducts a follow up interview with the performers, asking various questions regarding how we feel post shoot, why we chose to do porn, and finally, how do we know each other.
"Well, Sandy technically is my boss," replies Siouxsie, forcing all three filmmaker's jaws to drop as we again burst into a fit of giggles.
This being my first porn shoot I don't have much of anything to compare this experience with but I know I've stumbled across something unique and different with Pink and White Productions. They are made up of truly sex-positive, radical, and friendly beings who can recognize whats hot, regardless of the normative, and capture it in a way mainstream porn hasn't come near to breaching. Given the chance I would work with them again and again, no regrets.
