Introducing, The Pornstar Interviews

Hi, I’m Sydney Screams, a plus size adult entertainer. Like many out there, my first introduction to the concept of sex and sexuality was via porn. My public school education in Florida left a lot to be desired when it came to sexual education. Sure, we learned about periods and erections and STIs, but I didn’t learn about actual sex from school. I didn’t learn about it from experience either. I learned about it from porn. 

As it turns out, porn sex is often incredibly different from “real sex.” Yet, porn performers are often placed with the burden of education by civilians (a term occasionally used by adult entertainers to describe those who are not in the adult industry). As a child of academia, I carry this burden both begrudgingly and with joy. I find myself including aspects in my self produced porn that mainstream porn often leaves out: using lube, laughing & silliness, my genuine excitement for my scene partner(s). 

When I started working with Peepshow Toys earlier this year, I pitched the idea of running a series of blog interviews with pornstars. My idea was to 1 - help boost awareness of my talented colleagues, and 2 - help educate civilians about how different porn sex is in comparison to real sex. 

Much like Hollywood films, porn is a source of entertainment. Rather, that’s how it’s supposed to be. As I mentioned though, porn is often viewed through a scope of realistic expectations. Viewers have specific expectations of what constitutes pornography: blowjobs, penis in vagina (PIV) or penis in anus (PIA) sex, and orgasms aplenty. But the reality is that sex is often different off camera. 

This is why Peepshow Toys is such a great place to host this series. With past blogs that talk about how to decentralize penetration and tips for coming out to a partner later in a relationship, it’s clear to me that Peepshow Toys cares about education. 

In the coming series of interviews, I chat with some of the adult entertainment industry’s diverse population to bring a perspective that I believe many people don’t get to view. Some of these folks are my friends, some are my colleagues, some are people I’ve only briefly met or only interacted with online. But you’ll find that all of the coming interviews will have one thing in common: the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the person behind the performer. We’re excited, and we hope you are too!

To start the series off, I’ll be in both the interviewer’s and interviewee’s seats! 

  1. How did you get started in the adult industry?

When my best friend and I were growing up, we played dress up. Instead of playing “house” like many kids did, we played “world domination” but more specifically “female world domination.” We pretended to be, what I now know as, Dominatrixes. Fast forward to college, I had just gotten back from a semester abroad in Australia and was hosting a photoshoot event with some local models. All of them kept saying “Sydney, you should be on camera too!” but I didn’t really believe it. Months later, I started modeling as a pin-up model. A close photographer friend said they wanted to do my first nude photoshoot and I excitedly agreed. Several weeks later, I was hired for my first foot fetish shoot, which involved foot worship and trampling. I loved it. I was hooked. 

I began producing my own fetish content, and for the first 5 years of my career, I made fun, playful fetish content before I was hired for my first hardcore porn scene. I loved all of it! The roleplay, the dressing up, the meeting sexy people. Now, almost 16 years later, I self produce both fetish and hardcore porn as well as working for studios & other independent creators. And the best part is that I still love it. 

Oh, and that best friend I mentioned? She’s also an adult entertainer now too! Be sure to say hi and give Lauren Kiley a follow. 

  1. What are you known for as a performer?

My dirty talk and roleplay skills. As a fetish performer, I learned early on how to dirty talk and how to film entire videos just me talking to the camera as if it were a person. My fetish content is still my top selling content, and you’ll also find a lot of fetishes incorporated into my hardcore content. 

  1. What do you look for when picking out a sex toy?

First and foremost, it’s got to be body safe. I refuse to budge on this because years ago I had a non-body safe dildo give me a chemical burn and let’s just say that sort of experience sticks with you. I love fantasy dildos a lot, but I also enjoy clit & rabbit vibes quite a bit!

  1. Do you have a favorite toy or type of toy for solo play?

Rabbit vibes are my go to for solo play, but sometimes if I’m not in the mood for internal stimulation, just a clit vibe is perfect. My all time favorite vibrator is the JimmyJane Form 2, though recently some of my favorites include FemmeFun’s Klio rabbit vibe, Satisfyer’s Pro 2 Gen 3, and CalExotic’s Mini Marvel’s Marvelous Bunny Vibe partnered with a glass toy from Simply Elegant Glass

  1. What about a favorite toy or type of toy for partnered play?

My girlfriend jokes that I’ll make any toy a good toy for partnered play, and it’s true!! Any time I get a new toy, I test it out with her (except for rabbits because those don’t really suit our sex life). My go-to’s include wand vibrators and anything that’s harness compatible. I love to throw strap both on and off camera, so a good harness is a must in my life. Some of my recent favorites to use with a partner include Blush’s Temptasia Estella Strapless Vibrating Dildo, RealDoll’s Dirk RealCock 2, Uncover Creation’s Tentacle Grinder II, and Viben’s Sultry Wand

  1. What do you think is key for a happy sex life?

Communication and variety!! For a long time, I only considered sex to be PIV or PIA sex. It wasn’t until I got into a relationship with my current girlfriend that I began to understand that sex is so much more than just penetration. She can’t always receive or give penetration, so spicing things up with trying more sex toys together and exploring additional forms of pleasure beyond penetration has really kept our sex life vibrant & exciting! 

  1. How is performing on camera different for you than off camera sex?

When I’m in Sydney mode, my goal is to put on a good show. Yea, I want to normalize things like using lube on camera, but I’m also thinking far more about where my limbs are in relation to the camera(s), what does my face look like, is my belly hiding my pussy, does this position look good on camera, I hope my toenails aren’t chipped, can I reach the lube... I’m really focused on making a scene look good rather than enjoying the sex. Sometimes I orgasm, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes on camera sex is really fun, sometimes it feels like work. 

Off camera, I don’t get in my own head about all that. I can slow down and savor my partner. I love to tease and build up to sex! Lots of kissing, lots of hands & mouths all over each other’s bodies, listening to how my partner responds to my touch. I’m stubborn off camera too, in that if something feels like work, I don’t want to do it. I’m very much a soft domme who loves driving partners wild and giving them pleasure, and watching a partner squirm from my touch always gets me going!!
