My career is so different than the majority of my colleagues who wear those titles. I honestly don't believe there is a "title" for my particular place in the adult entertainment industry. I've tried to build a business model that embraces what the next generation of porn starlets will look like. If I told you everything about the direction of my career, I'd be giving away my secret to success that puts me earning more than any other porn star, webcam girl, or fetish model that I know of. But here are the basics:
It's a fact that the days when porn stars were few and far between are over. I don't know a lot about that era, but I do know how price and demand works. There were less girls being filmed, good porn was harder for the consumer to find, and the actors/actresses depended on other professionals to video, edit, market, and distribute the content. Other than staying beautiful and healthy; porn girls showed up for their scene, shot it, and went home. Today, however, if that is all you are willing/capable of doing.... your success and shelf-life in the porn industry will most likely be short. There are more girls than ever willing to be filmed. The market is flooded with free porn on tube sites and just females in general giving it away for free on social media and through sexting just to name a few. If less people are paying for their "porn" and more girls are trying to capitalize on it, then you suddenly have a market that most people cannot survive long term.
Because the last generation accepted porn this generation now embraces it more freely and openly. It is a normal thing for most guys (even those with a girlfriend or wife) to watch porn. It's not necessarily a taboo indulgence any longer. It is everywhere and much of it is FREE! For it to be "special" again or to take it to a level where consumers have not yet been desensitized there are options! I focus on those options and make myself available to the needs/desires that aren't being fulfilled by watching free porn (or even most subscription porn) every day.
Why Do I Appear in Porn Videos:
Contrary to popular belief, I do not shoot porn for the money. I make more money sitting at home managing my own website. I actually lose money when I appear in a porn production because I have to put my own business model on temporary hold to jump into the conventional porn model and play their game. I appear in a select number of porn videos (shot by the big companies) each year as self-advertisement. Those companies can and do reach many more potential clients than I could ever do myself. I use them as a billboard to sell the Ashley Sinclair brand. Guys watch one of my porn scenes, love it, and want more! But they can't find much of it on the free porn sites or even subscription sites. If they want more they have to order videos from my website, book a live cam show, or commission me to create a personalized custom video. The last two I mentioned being a premium service that comes with a hefty price tag.
Why Do You Video Chat With Fans:
I do it for several reasons. The first being, most porn girls are not successful at live video chat. Like I mentioned before, they would rather show up on set... shoot...go home. Their broadcasting schedules (if they even attempt or try "webcam") are sporadic and sometimes they lack the ability to be spontaneous in a live situation. That's not a bad thing. They're just used to having a script and sticking to it. Live cam with clients is much more involved. If a guy wants to Live Chat with a porn star he will have a hard time finding one that is consistently available and able to fulfill the personal interaction that this type of situation involves. I'm very well known for being reliable, fun, and genuine on cam. Most guys can't believe I'm an adult actress. They see me more as the girl next door who is so fucking naughty that she shoots porn for fun. (And that's mostly true!!) The second reason is because I genuinely enjoy meeting and talking with the fans. 75% of my cam shows don't even involve nudity. Talking to a REAL "naughty girl" is more than enough for some people. I enjoy learning what their personal sexual desires are and creating that situation live for them to enjoy. It's interactive and can be adjusted as they go. It's almost as if they now know a local girl that has done porn, naughty as hell, and they have her in their bedroom in front of them at their disposal. What guys wouldn't like that? Specifically I can cater 100% to their individual fetish. Guys I have known for years still book live cam sessions with me because I remember what they like and nail it 100% of the time.
You Are a Producer? What Content Do You Produce:
My main bread & butter (that's what we call currency in the south) comes from producing individualized custom videos. It's much like the personal interaction I have during live cam shows but it's usually more of a fantasy video involving specific niche porn of fetishes. Again, MANY of my videos don't even require nudity. (I don't mind being nude, but again... it's that personal attention to what really makes someone's clock tick and desires come to life.) Think about it, has every sexual fantasy you've ever had involved a naked porn girl with big tits and a flawless tan fucking a guy with a huge dick who eventually shoots cum on her face? No, of course not. Your biggest personal fantasy probably involves someone you actually know or have known. Maybe it's a character you've made up in your head and a situation that you'd love to be in but the logistics and probability of it are so far fetched that it will never happen. I'm the girl that makes it happen!!! Not only do I make it happen but I have it professionally filmed in HD and personally deliver it to you via email with the option for you to give me feedback. Some of my custom clients order 1 or 2 videos (or more) per month. You can see examples of previous custom videos I've filmed at www.AshleyAndFriends.com (fetish material) and www.ClubSinful.com (vanilla material).
Why Do You Appear In Weird Fetish Videos:
To begin with, I don't believe fetishes are weird. I believe people are made to feel like they are weird or different because society lies and tells them they are. But I've come to find out that just about anyone I've interacted with or met has SOMETHING that's a little different in their sexual appetite. Some are REALLY out there and some are just mild. Some change over time. Who am I to judge someone who enjoys feet as a part of their sexual gratification. They didn't choose to like feet... they just do. I didn't choose to like DICK... I just do! You would be surprised at the people I've met via live cam or custom video orders who would seem (and are) just as normal as can be, but they have a bondage fetish, cuckold fetish, foot fetish, and some so different they may not even make sense to you. But it makes sense to them.... and that's all that matters. My job is to bring your fantasy to life and that is why I appear in fetish videos. I enjoy making them and learning the different ways people express their sexuality. I don't always share the same fetishes as my clients... but I am an actress and I UNDERSTAND their fetish and can ALWAYS bring it to life for their enjoyment. They can't find this stuff anywhere else and that is why I make it.
THIS IS THE NEXT GENERATION OF PORN!!!! I do what few others are doing and I do it on my terms. I am the talent, the producer, the webmaster, the marketing guru, the editor. Because of so much success doing this I've been able to hire others to do most of those jobs but I manage them very closely and started out doing them myself. Always hire someone better than you do the things where you have reached the ceiling of your capability. I've now done that and it just helped me that much more. The next generation of adult entertainers, porn stars, webcam girls will eventually find that they will also need to be more than a one trick pony. They wont have to do it my way.... but they will have to evolve!
