Katsuni: escorts and pornstars are like cousins
Prostitution should be abolished? Given the unanimity of the political groups, the debate rumbles. Also socially reproved but slightly less illegal activity, porn star job and in particular pornographic actress struck me interesting to learn more about the opportunity to take these works socially stigmatized and stigmatizing.
Porn actress since 2001, Katsuni began to speak outside the scope of porn (but still around sexuality) in 2004, in a broadcast on Canal Jimmy, and also in a documentary broadcast on his fledgling career on MCA in 2005. In 2011, she opened a blog on the site of Inrocks and also starting a column on the «Nouvel obs» Magazine. Entrepreneur as a porn actress, she has responded with pleasure and kindness to the fire of my "original" interview. (it seems that usually asked instead his preferred sex position).
Porn actress, it's a job "like the others"?
This is a real job but a profession image and performance. In this he is like all so-called artistic works or sports even if it is in another register. The fact that I am an entrepreneur means that I decided to overcome this constraint by becoming the owner of my brand. So I have a company that produces porn movies but also lingerie. And indeed this activity as an entrepreneur is a profession like any other, it's still business. However I can not say that an actor or actress X is really an ordinary profession in the sense that it implies a special relationship with her body and her sexuality and it touches on the taboos of a society. Morally there will always be marginal, but it's also what made it successful!
What are the differences between being a porn actress and escort?
They are two different disciplines but both belong to the sex industry. One focuses on image and its distribution, the other on a supply made directly with the consumer. Be an actor or porn actress , as the name suggests is to be an actor, play, express, show, for the purposes of a pre-determined product (photos, video). There are sex (sometimes simulated versions "softs") between partners of the same profession. Their sex is "directed" by a director in accordance with a specification (location, sex practice ..) then the company selling to a specific audience. Escort does not sell his image but operates in a private setting. It has to do with an "individual", an individual who does not exercise the same trade, which can be anonymous or "regular". Its function is to satisfy the sexual needs of the other, sometimes even going beyond the human or emotional relationship. In both cases the porn actress and prostitute are paid to perform a sexual act but for different reasons, and in a different framework. They are somehow cousins.
Can we speak generally of "sex work"?
Yes there is a large industry, however it is important not to generalize and do well the distinction between each business and each activity if we want to pretend to defend the right way. It is important to focus on working conditions, difficulties, and individual characteristics. For example, for escorts, I think we should know the difference between those constraints and are part of a network (in which case the term prostitution is associated with more sexual slavery) and those who exercise independent escort as a truly separate activity, by choice (without the pressure of a third organization). Then remains to define the nuances between the occasional escort, mother and student, the one high class escort, elite escort girl, female companion, VIP escort, etc ... What is important regardless of the choices and motivations of sex workers, is to recognize them as workers in their own right, belonging fully to our society.
Do you think your job to press ahead mentality?
I do not think my job to make change attitudes. I think it is rather how to live and talk about what matters. There are professions ungrateful, hard, difficult, extreme, there is no job for me "dirty". There are ones more rewarding than others relative to his expectations, ambitions, skills, from the standards and values of a society. But ultimately what matters is the human aspect. Many of my Inrocks readers, Nouvel Obs readers do not watch my movies or do no watch them anymore, some do not watch porn at all. Yet they all have their views on porn and the people in it. And I am delighted when people tell me these be pleasantly surprised. Not tbecause the world of the X do them fantasize, but because they discover another dimension of this universe. This new look allows them to snap a moral judgment (often influenced by our education, our fears, our taboos), and truly consider the industry as an X-fledged industry with its workers and working conditions its own. This is breaking away sex industry from fantasy, the image of porn industry than you can return to the human, being able and ready to talk about their basic rights, breaking out the topics.
Are you a feminist? Why?
I'm all for respect for human rights, respect for the human being, whether man, woman, transgender, black, white, young, old, straight, gay, aristocrat or worker ... whatever. Sometimes I completely agree with the speech of some feminists (it is important to remember that there are several common) but I must admit that the arguments of some exasperate me, because they seem to think only as women and that only reinforces the divide that seems to be opposed to men. They want to be heard as they enclose themselves in extremist speech then it would probably be more interesting and compelling to speak as individuals in their own right, to detach himself from her emotions, her sensitivities and resentments to discuss real ideas on the ground. Moreover a man may also be a feminist! I am sad that many feminists talk like women injured. Perhaps they are, but the error is reacting only when you feel hurt, to adopt a macho speech backwards, based on the rejection of men, the revolt, even hatred. It shows a bitterness that bothers me. As for those who claim to defend women fighting against prostitution as a whole, I do not see them too many differences with the mackerel they denounce. Do they like and they really respect women for their escape and the right to think?
