Interview with Steven St. Croix.
September 3th, 2012 - In a candid, thought-provoking, and occasionally funny (hilarious) interview, twenty-year adult industry legend Steven St. Croix speaks with Dr. Chauntelle and Lydia Lee about a great many things.
Steven discusses the industry he entered in 1992 vs. the industry he works in today, including the development of what he sees as a lack of camaraderie amongst performers and within the business overall. He also comments on the current syphilis situation and the dissension he sees developing between different industry factions. Further, he offers some very thoughtful insights regarding mandatory condom use in porn:
I'm against the government telling the public what they should do with their bodies. In the same way that I think a woman has the freedom to choose whether to have a child or to have an abortion, I think this is also within that same realm. ... I don't believe that the government - that is on record for trying to close down the adult industry for years - is now going to dictate to that same industry "condom use for all performers."
He speaks at length about "the best role of his career," New Sensations' Torn. He discusses his inspiration for the character, bonding with Torn's writer/director Jacky St. James, and her co-director Eddie Powell's attention to story composition.
Finally, in a very moving segment, Steven reflects on his inclination towards performance and comedy as a child - he just wanted to be liked and get along in school. He shares inspiration for his blog and describes his three-year sabbatical in France (painting, film, and a gallery of his own!). He speaks briefly about his love of French culture and the European approach to social media.
It's an amazing interview with one of the adult industry's true greats - not to be missed!
