Personal Quotes (5)

I have just always been different than the other people around me. In high school I was voted most unique and most ambitious by my classmates. It wasn't most unique in a bad way I had always just been different. I always wanted to stand out. I didn't want to blend in with everybody. What fun is that? I want the attention.
I've pretty much been obsessed with porn ever since I can remember. I started watching it at a really young age. I was in fourth grade when I first started watching it and I started getting really familiar with my body. I used to tell everybody at such a young age that being a porn star was what I wanted to be some day. The more people that are out there watching me, it excites me more. Knowing that other people are watching me while they are in their homes and getting off to me gets me off. It is more of the fact of knowing that other people are out there and enjoying it. That does it for me. I've always told everybody that this is what I wanted to do.
[from an interview in 2007] When I would watch porn when I was younger it was all girl/girl stuff. That's what actually turned me on. Now, I love everything. I love cock so much. When I was younger all that I saw was the girl/girl stuff. Being from a small, rural county and a small town, girl/girl stuff was really unheard of. It was something different to me and something that was considered to be bad. It excited me. Women's bodies are so beautiful with all of their curves, their softness and their innocence in a way. It was bad at the time and I guess that is why I liked it so much.
[on the most pleasant surprises after getting into porn] Everything. The attention. The fucking. The sucking. Going around and meeting the fans. Going to Las Vegas was incredible. Seeing all the people. I love doing signings. I like to interact with the people that are watching my stuff. Like I said, that is what gets me off is them enjoying it. They shouldn't enjoy watching someone who is stuck-up. I like hanging out with everybody.
[on hosting the adult-oriented music series Radium (2007)] I'm what you call a "Band-aid with benefits;" I'm not a groupie. I really appreciate music. It's a big part of my life. These guys and girls have a lot of talent and are very inspiring to me.
