Paris Kennedy Interview
If I was to promote fetish porn to the average porn fan, Paris Kennedy would be that particular spokesmodel. Not only does she ooze sexiness with her beautiful looks and demeanor, but also has a fun and creative personality that keeps the viewer's attention in tact. This quality is easily validated in her science fiction and fantasy scenes from her several popular web sites. Her penchant for vampire porn as well as bondage acts show that Paris Kennedy is not your typical mainstream porn starlet. Her creativeness and self-confidence set her apart from her contemporaries and thus, deserves much recoginition for it. Paris Kennedy knows what is good porn for her fans and she will never cheat them with anything less.
Hi Paris, you get more and more lovelier. For those fans who are not aware of you, how long have you been in the industry, what have been your most pleasurable moments so far? What has been your least pleasurable?
Thank you! Let's see, I've been in the adult industry for 8 years! But in different parts of the industry as explained in the next question. The past year has definitely been most pleasurable. I've been experimenting more sexually and testing my limits. But it's really all about the people. A good company, director, crew and most importantly, the other talent....when everyone all clicks, the scene clicks! Least pleasurable, hmmm, I guess, catty models, shady photographers, LOL. They are rare, luckily. But when I feel that I've disappointed my fans in a scene, that will ruin my pleasure. I always want to do my best. I hate settling or feeling like I didn't give it my all.
How did you get into the adult industry?
I started as a professional BDSM submissive in a legendary Los Angeles dungeon. From there, I signed with a mainstream agency, TY Management, which is sadly no longer around. I only did about 6 scenes in mainsteam porn during that time. I was so shy and awkward when I first started! I didn't really understand myself yet, sexually. So when I ended up moving out of state, I stopped doing hardcore and focused on becoming a bondage model. I traveled all over the country modeling for different bondage and fetish photographers and made a name for myself in that side of the business. Then, a year ago, I moved back to Los Angeles and decided to try mainstream porn again. I signed with A-List Talent and started shooting. It was an entirely different experience than when I shot B/G years ago. I found my sexual identity in those years and I now bring more passion and hunger to my scenes and geniuinely get off in them. I came 6 times during my last shoot! I feel like I'm prepared now for B/G in a way I wasn't before. I get so excited before a shoot!

It's no doubt that when you appear on screen, you command so much attention with your sexiness and playful persona. Your work in Sorry Daddy Whitezella Broke My Little Pussy 3 and your web sites www.pariskennedy.com and www.slayerparis.com are great examples of this fact. As a sci-fi fan, I think that your science fiction fantasies are amazing. What does it mean to you that you transcend the fetish porn audience and have made fans who usually do not follow this genre?
It's amazing and has been part of my companies' goal from the start. To bring in science-fiction/fantasy fans who might not normally pay for porn...and porn fans who just happen to love sci-fi/fantasy and maybe didn't realize this kind of stuff was out there for them. We have always been narrative-driven. I am not interested in reality porn. I'm interested in fantasy. And my fans demand it all, hot sexual action, a good story, good costumes and good acting. Every shoot is a challenge, but when I get it right, I know I'm doing it my way, shooting what I find exciting and it's so worth it.
I have noticed that you love being the submissive in your sex scenes. Why is that role your favorite? What makes you so excited in being in that role? Also, one of your interests is role playing. That's one of mine too. Why does it get you so turned on and what are some of your favorite role play situations?
I have always been a natural sub in the bedroom. It's a thrill for me to be completely under the control of someone else, to exist only for their pleasure.
As for roleplaying, it's fun to escape or act out risky situations without the actual danger. Fantasy is safe. My roleplays are very naughty, I love to be a little girl or a little kitten for a strong man.
You have remarkable sexual chemistry with both men and women. What traits of a woman do you admire most? What makes a woman sexy? What traits of a man do you admire most? What makes a man sexy?
Women. Ah women. I tend to like my girls on the curvy side. I love big boobs, especially implants, I don't know why I've always found them so sexy. I love nice teeth on a girl, especially when they have a slight overbite. I have a fetish for slightly raspy voices on girls. I like my girls a little shy because I like to be in control when I'm in bed with them. Not dominant, but a top. But yeah, girls are magical =)
Men. I love men. I can't help it. I like a man who is a little arrogant, confident. My weakness is sexy blue eyes and strong arms. I tend to date big men because I like feeling small and helpless in the bedroom. But he also needs to treat me like an equal intellectually, be kind with me, and also give me my space, because I treasure my alone time, LOL. I admire a man with natural swagger. Who is cool and doesn't even have to try. I like my boys a little bit bad, but with good hearts. Those men are hard to find but when I come in contact, Lord help me. My clothes can't stay on.
Personally, I consider you the Sex Goddess of Fetish Porn because your sensuousness and gorgeous looks ooze through the screen as well as your creative persona. Am I right or did I just ask a stupid question and totally get it all wrong? How would you describe yourself when it comes to your fetish porn persona?
Wow, thanks, I'm flattered. I don't really see myself that way...I think I am still getting used to the fact that people find me sexy. I was NOT popular in high school and never pictured myself ending up where I am today. I try and have fun, be silly, not take myself too seriously. Life is too short. Sex should be fun. I love what I do and I think that translates to my fans. I'm just me.
What was the biggest surprise for you about the adult industry when you started?
Like a lot of people, I had the impression that everyone was on drugs or that they would be horrible, the kind of people I couldn't trust. I was so wrong. I have met some of the most AMAZING, talented, intelligent, beautiful and kind people in this industry. In fact all of my closest friends are folks I met in this business and I am very grateful to know them.
Are there any industry people (actors, actresses, directors, etc.) who you have not had the opportunity to work with yet and want to very badly and why? What would be your dream scene?
My dream scene would be with or for Belladonna. She is someone I really look up to in this industry. She did things her way. And is one of the biggest porn stars of all time without fitting into the typical porn chick look. I admire her as a performer and a director.
I'd also love to get my hands on Tera Patrick. She is amazing.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I love being active. That includes yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, surfing, hiking. I love the beach and tropical places. I am passionate about literature, music, fashion. I have a HUGE interest in tattoos. I've been working on my sleeves (sorry tattoo haters!). I love to travel all over the world and have great adventures. I love British culture and Italian/French art and shoes. I have a deep love for animals--I have a bunch and have done a lot of volunteer work for animals. I also love Dinosaurs.
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
Being my own boss. Not having to be ashamed of my VERY "healthy" sex drive ever again!
Are there any web sites or future projects that you would like to promote? What are you currently working on film wise?
I am turning my main site http://www.pariskennedy.com/ into a hardcore site. There will still be BDSM elements, but it will now focus more on hardcore B/G, G/G, and solo masturbation. I am also finally adding a webcam feature.
I am also currently working on my own feature mainstream porn company. I am really enjoying being a producer. I want to make feature length, hardcore films, while keeping the fantasy, action, and grindhouse elements of my original product. I have already written the scripts for my first two features, and production starts in May!
