Personal Quotes (3)

I'm part of the new era of porn. We're feminists, very sex-positive people. We're not victims of rape, not drug addicts, we don't have any daddy issues.
[on her distaste for the word porn] I think my distaste for the term also comes from the fact that so many people try to use their definition of the term against me. As if I'm the problem.
I have sex for money, so I'm not a feminist? I portray sexual fantasies on screen for entertainment, so I'm not a feminist? I like to wear make-up and feel sexy, so I'm not a feminist? Fuck you, I'm a feminist.
