On acting in porn

Casey, I have always wondered how much is acting vs. real emotion in porn and/or bondage scenes.

Everyone talks about how porn isn’t real, it’s so fake, I mean, look at that girl, she’s definitely not actually coming. And here’s the thing. Some of it is fake. It’s unavoidable.

Once upon a time, long before porn, I made an at-home sex tape with my then-boyfriend. We fucked just like we would have if the camera wasn’t sitting on a tripod across the room. And the sex was excellent, both of us super aroused knowing we were filming it.

When we sat down later to watch it, we were disappointed. Our sex tape, well, it was boring. You couldn’t really see anything, you couldn’t really hear anything. We thought we had captured something really hot, but instead, it was just two naked bodies smashing together and some moaning.

The very core of shooting porn, at least for me, is the performance. (It’s one of the reasons why escorting isn’t my thing, but that’s another blog for another day.) It’s opening up. It’s dirty talk. It’s acting. And it’s all for the camera.

I try to take what I am really feeling, whether it’s arousal, or trepidation, or excitement, and I perform those feelings. I make them larger than they really are, in the realest way I possibly can.

And I do this so you can see it.

It’s the eyes darting around the room and the soft moans at the intro of a bdsm scene.

It’s the fumbling with clothes and the giggling during a romance scene.

It’s the connection with the camera and the crazy orgasms during a gonzo scene.

I don’t consider it fake. I certainly don’t fake anything, especially my orgasms. I might play up the good things, and downplay the bad, but nothing is fake. It’s just performance.

And it’s hella fun.

  • Hello Casey, I would never accuse you of faking anything. Anyone who’s as open & honest as you are about her sexuality wouldn’t be faking it when she’s doing something she loves. I’d like to meet you sometime for a nice evening starting with dinner, dancing, a movie & alot of really good conversation about the fun parts of life. I’m not looking for anything out of it, just a nice evening with a sweet, smart & sexxxy woman. Have a very nice day.

  • Well put, Casey! I admire the work the actors put in to delighting the viewers with their performance. Keep up the good work! I’ll be watching and, well, you know. B^)

  • As trite as this sounds, I am so very happy for you, that you’ve found your niche, and a career you enjoy. Good on yah. I agree with you, you aren’t filthy, under appreciated, and probably under paid maybe. But aren’t we all?

    As a complete tyro I’ve a couple of questions and observations (some are both at the same time).

    There appears to be physiological constraints in your craft regarding the using up or unavailability of vaginal lubrication . It appears that female actors (including you, I believe I’ve seen some of your work) suffer from using up some sexual juiciness quickly in that your vaginas ( and vulva, etc.) seem to be “dry” quite often, judging by observing (personal and in films) “dry” penis shafts). Isn’t lack of lubrication uncomfortable and potentially damaging to both female and male actors? I’ve seen lots of spit in various productions, some pretty thick, is this a method of delivering a needed lube? Or does ordinary spit really do the trick?

    Side Question: The males seem to run out of semen pretty quickly as well, I would imagine that’s handled with some special effect fluid to preserve the Money Shot

    E-Coli and other Infectious disease organisms are scarey. Isn’t analingus, going down on a penis fresh from a rectum, or into your vagina like really dangerous. I can see that from a sensual art see it maybe cool, real earthy, and really Freudian, but fecal mater in your vagina or mouth, get real?

    Last thing, I’m sure you guys already realize this but a mild to full flushed appearance on the chest above the breasts to the face indicates the beginning of the orgasmic state
