Personal Quotes (4)

[from an interview in February, 2005] Anal. I like reverse cowgirl. Dick Delaware can actually make me cum when he's in my ass. He's the only person I've found out that can do that, but, for whatever reason ...
[from an interview in February, 2005] Well I like ... I really have the same kinda sex off camera as I do on camera. I really like it rough. I love, for me? I'd almost rather get face fucked than anywhere else. I just get such a high off ... because I'm such a good sub, that I love ... you know what I mean? I just love anything oral. I love having something in my mouth. I used to suck my thumb as a kid, so maybe that's where it comes from. But I just love being choked out. For me, it's like that lack of oxygen. But that gets me off more than anything else. I like to try to go over the top, and always with something new.
[on marrying Coffee Ron] We are just vile kindred spirits, what can I say? Twisted minds are bound to come together and they obviously have at Extreme [Associates]. We are so happy and now we are two of a kind.
For me [extreme hardcore sex] is the highest plateau of sexual expression. A lot of people look down on it, that the guys are abusing the girls, but it actually takes a lot to be able to hit somebody and have both people be okay with it. That's your understanding of intense pleasure.
