Changing Positions: A Second Interview with Adult Entertainer Sheena Ryder

A paradigm shift is necessary for the adult entertainment industry to thrive. It is under attack from all angles – consumers, conservatives, politicians, and hypocrites constantly chomp at the bits to criticize what they don’t understand or are too embarrassed to cop to. These stances are nothing new, but pornography continues to penetrate the mainstream, so the aftermath of this ignorance is more apparent than ever.

In my second interview with adult entertainment royalty, Ms. Sheena Ryder, we expanded on our previous discussion. Forget generic questions that pages in a search history can answer. Our conversation continues to see what’s between the lines and not just between the sheets.

Editor’s Note:  We created this recording in July 2023 [but it has been previously unreleased until now].

Before this interview began, Sheena even told me about how she was recently on a plane, and a young man sitting next to her made a pass at her by condescendingly saying he recognized her from somewhere. She knew where he knew her from, but instead of just saying, “I enjoy your work.” He tried to play it off, so she said, “I’m a porn star, and you’ve probably jacked off to me.” He never said another word to her for the rest of the flight.

While this exchange is relatively simple, it is a microcosm of the uphill battle that pornography continues to face. The “shame” associated with it is illogical. And respect is due to Sheena for throwing that “shame” back in his fucking face. And while sexual activity is a private matter, it is not one to be ashamed of, so the idea that the complement has to be so sly is an insult to Sheena’s profession and a multi-billion-dollar industry that provides jobs and puts food on people’s tables and makes people feel good. Can pornography be exploitive and degrading? Yes, but so can any profession if you allow it to be. Many of them are, too (even more so than porn is accused of being), but the people who work there fail to realize it.

I’ve enjoyed Sheena’s content on a few occasions, and I respectfully told her about it to articulate how great she is at her job. It isn’t about an exposé, “gotcha journalism,” or being offensive. It’s about being honest. So, on the contrary, it is why conversations and articles like these are so meaningful. They prove how pornography is a positive force if in the hands of people who know what they’re doing. And so, while lots of stuff in the realm of XXX emphasizes the body, this is about the brain and how and why this business deserves just as much respect as the neighborhood grocery store for the people it employs and the purpose it serves. Pornography comes down to being truthful about what makes people feel good and providing an outlet for that pleasure that everyday life doesn’t always allow. That is an integral part of existence and evidence that, ironically, fantasies keep it real regarding porn.

Another thing Sheena told me is that just because you watch porn doesn’t mean you know how to make it. So, aside from the technical components of filmmaking, it is about understanding how to tap into that primal desire and then feel satisfied on many levels. It’s the difference between just cumming and being surrounded by sticky tissues and cumming to end up in euphoria. And regarding that, Sheena Ryder is the definition of nirvana!

P.S. Thank you (again) to Mr. Chad Kiser for the ability to write and post this interview as my adult entertainment alter ego. And not unlike hip-hop (where creatives can also be more than one character), adult entertainment can be a very controversial subject. However, at their best, they are both forms of expression in which the artist or performer is completely free and often challenges norms to educate and entertain the masses in the face of adversity. And so it makes sense that hip-hop and porn have been bedfellows in the past. Hence, it only makes sense that they continue to do so to provide an outlet for many and promote positive progress in the process. This interview will reach as many people as possible via sharing, social media, and word-of-mouth because that is a stepping stone for how change can happen—peace, love, and blessings to all.
