April Dawn Interview

April Dawn pornstar interview

You’ve started modelling pretty young but could you tell us a little about your life before you got into the industry?

I’ve always chosen to do more manual labor than anything – I’ve served food since I was 14, done odd jobs here and there throughout the years, as well as help my aunt out at her screen printing shop. A couple years ago we thought about starting up an apparel line of our own – we never really followed through with, printing the t-shirts for other people was enough for us, but about five years ago my aunt started making this lotion which we still create to this day. We are trying to figure out how to start up a company off of it and hoping that it becomes a successful bath and body product line. Other than that there was a year and a half of school with hopes of becoming a psychologist only to decide adult films was something that I wanted to try out. So here I am, making adult films and trying to make my first million by 21.

What first prompted you to get into the business?

A friend of mine was friends with my (now) agent, Black Rose, and suggested that he knew someone he could hook me up with to get me started. I don’t think I would’ve had it any other way. I have yet to work with any other agencies but personally I don’t think I would want to, I feel right at home with my fellow roses and thorns.

What was your first shoot, and what was it like?

My first shoot ever was actually a foot fetish shoot, and it was the first time I ever had to put my feet on someone, and that’s a big deal for me. The first shoot was with Rootdawg, he has a cool little fetish clip store on clips4sale.

You’ve shot some pretty rough scenes already – did they intimidate you and was it the first time you’d experienced that kind of sex?

It definitely was not the first time I had experienced that kind of sex. It is actually a type of sex that I very much enjoy in my personal life. Was it intimidating? No they actually are really good at making you understand that your limits are respected, it was a very comfortable feeling. Granted, the first time I shot with them it was my first “big company” so that was kind of intimidating. But as soon as the camera started rolling I felt right at home.

I am however beginning to draw back from that genre of porn, soley because I have realized the lack of respect it brings. It seems to categorize you in some people’s eyes in a certain way, I have also realized that a sad majority of people don’t comprehend that models that do that type of work do it on their own terms. And it just seems that the way I am approached by a majority of the fans that I’ve gained from those videos lacks general respect. It seems to be that they see you do something crazy on camera, so they think that they can always treat you a certain way. And it’s just not the facts of the matter, I would love to focus on finding a way to bring that kind of porn into a better, more respectable light. It is a real kink that people have, and I feel as though a lot of people are truly misinformed about how it works, only because of how modern day companies choose to portray it.

What’s been your favorite experience in modeling?

Best experience in modeling I have gotten so far is the tremendous gain in self-respect and self-love I have developed. Honestly, when I decided to start doing this I was not in the headspace that I am today. I have to say in the past 9 or 10 months I have grown in a lot of ways that I not only did I not know I needed to grow in but in the past would never have felt I could grow in. When I first decided that this is something I really wanted to focus my time and energy on and risk so much for, I didn’t think that it would help me grow in so many different aspects. In all honesty I thought that it was just gonna be me occasionally having sex on camera and that was all I was going to take away from the experience, just to fulfil a kink that I knew I always had, and I am so proud to say that not only is my initial reason for entering the business minuet compared to other reasons I have uncovered, but it actually wasn’t even a reason. I was lying to myself, I have definitely uncovered bigger reasons why I chose to do this.

Who’ve you most enjoyed working with?

For me there is no ‘most enjoyed’, I love what I do in general and have yet to work with anybody that has made me hate what I do. Everyone I’ve worked with from Reality Kings to Facial Abuse to my fellow clips4sale store owners have made me realize how at home I am doing this and how happy it makes me. Every shoot makes me excited for the next.

Are there any types of shoot you’d love to try?

Definitely shoots with more acting, I would love to see if I could grow in that realm. I would also like to dabble in more of the sensual stuff!

Do you have to work hard to keep your body in great shape?

Like you wouldn’t believe: my workout routine daily is four hours! I walk about a mile and a half first, I do core for about an hour, then I go onto weights for an hour, and then I walk another mile and a half. On top of all that for some reason I have an issue with weight fluctuation, I can work out every day for a week and in that week I’ll drop four pounds, gain seven, drop another five, then by the end of the week be at the same number that I started off at. I’ve always had an issue ever since I could remember when I was little, with keeping weight off no matter how active I was. I’m making sure that what I’m putting into my body is just as good as the effort that I’m putting in to shaping the outside. I mean, when they say that it’s all about what you eat, it really is most of the time. Other than that I just have to make sure that I’m keeping myself emotionally and mentally happy.

What’s your favorite part of your body (and what would you change if you had a chance)?

You know, I’ve never had a favorite part of my body and I’ve never had anything and I was like I really wanted to change. In all honesty, I guess I would have to say my stomach is the only thing that I’ve ever really had an issue with and I’m working really hard on changing it. I’ve always wanted my ass to be bigger too. In middle school I had a big bubble butt; I hit high school and I went flat. I’m working on it though.

Which models would you love to work with (male or female, past or present)?

Johnny Sins and Kissa Sins. What I would give to shove my face in that fat beautiful ass. In general I have a thing for couples, that’s a real a turn on for me.

What would you like your future to hold (either in the industry or beyond it)?

Lord I hope my future holds many, many, many shoots. Maybe touring, traveling around. And amazing growth for the bath and body product line that my aunt and I are partnering to release.

What advice would you give to any girl considering getting into the adult industry?

This is a big one for me. I haven’t even been doing this a year yet and the number of women that I’ve met who truly, wholeheartedly enjoy what they do is small. If I had to give women one just one piece of advice it would be to really think about if you’re doing it for yourself, or if you’re doing it for the money. Because honestly there is a right and a wrong answer.

What do you enjoy doing with your free time?

Free time, what free time? No seriously though, when I do get some time to myself I’d have to say anything from physical activities outdoors like fishing, boating, hiking, walking, to being around people that I enjoy. Really it’s just whatever mood I’m in – over the last two years I really have become a go with the flow kind of person.

What is the best thing about having big boobs?

That you get to play with them whenever you want, pretending to adjust them, pretending like they itch, pretending like you just can’t get comfortable. Because you love touching boobs, and you have a pair!

And the worst?

Good luck bending over good luck picking anything up, good luck laying down, good luck sitting up straight. Big boobs are the worst… physically. Other than that I’m all for big tits.

How old were you when your boobs developed?

Lord, when did my boobs develop? I have to say I bought my first bra in middle school, but OK, this is a good one: when I brought my first bra to my mother she hugged me and said ‘I’m so happy, I didn’t know how to tell you: you’ve needed one since fourth grade.’ I will never forget that day, as well as a couple years back when I was 16 and I swore I was a B cup. My loving aunt took me shopping, and nicely said I needed to learn what size bra to wear, and that was the moment I learned that I was a double D. But developmental wise, according to my mother, it was in fourth grade. She just didn’t know how to tell me!

You’ve got a great tattoo on your thigh, tell us more about that.

Let me clarify, it’s not satanic. There’s a lot of factors to put into play when you are putting it on your body as artwork. I would like to also clarify that when I originally got it, well decided to get it, it was with all intentions that it was just a memorial for a friend who died young. I waited about three years to really let it set and decide if I wanted it on my body forever or not. There was never a day that I second-guessed myself. A few months before I got the tattoo, a friend asked me if I knew what it meant. I did not, and he proceeded to inform me that it stood for good luck. Come time when I’m laying on the table before my artist started doing work he asked me if I knew what it meant. Again, I said no, but that someone had told me that it meant good luck. I then got a history lesson, and I must say by the end of it I knew very much that I needed to get this tattoo on my body. It portrays demonic qualities as well as angelic. It all depends on the era that you base it off of, the colors that you use, the side of the body put it on.

If half the people that feared the way it looks asked about the meaning, we would probably live in a more diverse and understanding society. But sadly that is not the case, and having it on my body puts me in a category. What category? I’m not really sure because I don’t really pay attention, because ever since the day that I saw it I wanted to know what it really meant. If you would like to do your research it is called a hannya mask. It stems from Japanese culture, and many Americans today actually put these masks on their body, to represent whatever the deeper meaning to the era of the mask is. At least that’s why I got it, I hope half the people that have this mask on their body know what it means!

Describe your perfect man.

The perfect man in my world does not exist. I am terrible at reading people and I’m terrible at knowing what I want. The perfect man in my world is a man who comes into my life, sweeps me off my feet, and makes me question how I ever found someone like him to put up with me. Still waiting on that one.

Your perfect night out?

A night out for me would probably consist of not even going out. I’m not much of an outer, if that makes any sense. My perfect night out would probably be during the day and it would be anything from the zoo to the aquarium to kayaking or rock climbing. If I really, really have to answer the question, a night out would probably be spent around a really big bonfire with a bunch a really awesome people.

Your perfect night in?

Maybe with a person or two or three so everyone can have a cuddle buddy, a movie might be involved, probably a lot of food, definitely smoke being passed around. But you know a “perfect night in” probably doesn’t exist in my world, when I was little I always held expectations for everything and I was always disappointed. Growing up I realize that I am way happier with going with the flow. It takes time and a lot of positive energy, but you know you get there and then things like the perfect night don’t exist until they actually happen. In general my perfect night in would be being around people that I love, that make me happy. Everyone having a great time, good laughs going around, amazing conversation. If I’m going to be in, I’m probably going to surround myself with some pretty awesome fucking people.

Favorite sex position?

I love doggy style. Period. Grab me by the hair, slap me on the ass, shove it in me balls deep doggy style.

What turns you on?

I wouldn’t even know where to begin with that. Respects turns me on. Doing porn has kind of desensitized me in a way. My normal crazy stuff hasn’t really been doing it for me anymore. Don’t get me wrong, if I’m acting up a slap in the face is definitely going to make me wet, but I realize that the way people react to someone enjoying stuff like that, means it’s something that should be kept private. People sometimes don’t know how to treat you after they find out you like stuff like that. I get talked down to a lot for how much I enjoy doing facial abuse but I would prefer if people understood that in the moment I like the way that they talk down to me because it’s consensual; hitting me up on Twitter in a tweet calling me a dumb whore doesn’t make me feel good! I just think more people should understand where a model is coming from when that’s a personal preference of hers, and that being a stranger, speaking down to her does not make her feel good about herself.

Favorite type of music?

I have no one favorite type of music. I grew up playing cello, listening to rap from my sister. My favorite type of music is whatever makes me feel good in the moment, and normally something I know all the lyrics to.

Favorite drink?

Aloe drink hands-down, the mango flavor

Favorite reading material?

Anything educational, and maybe self-help like. I’m really into philosophy recently.
