Victoria Rae Black is a member of an exclusive club of adult performers who have transitioned from Playboy modeling to a successful career as an actress in hardcore films.

The popular performer also has a standout role in AMKingdom’s recently released summer blockbuster Revenge of the Petites.

Victoria kindly spoke with XXX Wasteland recently to discuss her stint as a Vivid contract talent, appearing as one of the focal characters in Revenge of the Petites, her plans for the future and much more.

Let’s start at the beginning: Can you tell us how you entered the adult industry initially?

Yeah, of course. Well, it all began a few years ago. I used to do mainstream modeling and I was a very curvy girl. I was big-chested and that limited my abilities to do certain mainstream modeling. The only things I could really do were swimsuit modeling and car modeling and I didn’t really like that.

I found out there was a casting call in Chicago – which is close to Milwaukee – and I went to a Playboy casting call and they immediately booked me for some shoots, so I became a Playboy model. I did that for almost a year.

With the Playboy modeling, I got plenty of offers to do adult modeling. I waited for the right offer and I signed a contract with Vivid Entertainment, it was like a six-month contract. I did three movies with them and it just went from there.

What made you to decide to make the jump from Playboy modeling to adult film performing?

Well, like I said, I got lots of offers to do adult and it gave me time to think about whether or not I wanted to do it. Eventually, I figured, “This is something I want to do.” It’s something I always thought about doing, I just waited for the right opportunity.

As you mentioned, you were contracted to Vivid Entertainment for a short time. Can you tell us about that experience?

I really liked working for Vivid. Everyone there was really nice, I had a lot of fun shooting for them. It was my first time and they made me feel really comfortable. I didn’t feel weird or awkward or strange in the position I was in.

The thing I liked most about working for Vivid is I did a movie. It was a feature movie called The Victoria Rae Black Experiment and they put me in a bunch of different scenarios: I was in a saloon and I was at a circus and things like that, or I was in a teacher’s room on a desk. I did the scenes and they would also have me talking about the experiences before and afterwards. I would tell them how I felt and how excited I was about doing this scene and afterwards they would ask me how much fun I had doing it. It was a really good time and if I could do it all over again, I would.

You also had a prominent role in AMKingdom’s recent release, Revenge of the Petites, which has received quite a lot of buzz throughout the industry. Can you tell us about that film and your part in the movie?

Yes. That movie is about two different groups of sorority sisters who are rivals. There are the Petites and then there are the Thetas. The Thetas are really tall, snobby, rich girls and the Petites are really sweet, cute, short, innocent girls. And in the Petites, there is a girl named Marie McCray and she’s really sweet, but she’s really self-conscious and she wants to be like the Thetas: she wants to be tall, beautiful and voluptuous, but she feels like she’s not and she struggles with that.

In her imagination, she has this dream girl – this girl that she wants to be, that she strives to look like and act like, and that girl is me. So, I’m in Marie’s imagination and she sees me throughout the college, she sees me while she’s doing a car wash and she sees me on her bed. She talks to me a little bit and I kind of dive in and help her become the woman she wants to be.

Very cool. It really sounds like a blockbuster film – a huge cast, a multi-DVD set and a lot of excitement around it.

Definitely.

You have been a part of the industry for a few years and achieved success in it. With that said, is there one misconception about the adult business that you wish you could dispel?

I would say that a lot of the time the biggest thing I hate about people’s misconceptions are that they think I live, breath and eat sex and that’s just who I am, that’s my personality, that’s all I care about and that’s it. But really, that’s not the truth.

Of course, I love to have sex or else I wouldn’t be in the industry that I’m in. But I am a normal person and I have a normal life and sex isn’t always the number one thing on my mind. I like to go to theme parks and I like to hang out at home and watch movies and play video games. My number-one goal in life isn’t just to make sure that sex is on everyone’s mind all the time.

A lot of people say I’m a whore and they’ll find me online just so they can say horrible things to me like that. But it’s a job and somebody has to do it and I have fun doing it, so why not? (Laughs)

For sure. May I ask a few questions about yourself as a person, if that’s okay?

Oh yeah, that’s fine. Ask away.

Great. Can you tell us where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up?

Oh, for sure. I was raised in a town called South Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Everybody thinks it’s the south side of the city of Milwaukee, but it’s not. It’s a town and it’s called South Milwaukee.

It was small. I think there were only like a thousand people in my graduating class. Everybody knew everybody in my town and usually people who live in my town never leave. They raise families there, work there and they die there. But I was one of the few that got away, I guess you could say.

I grew up in a house with my mother – she was a single mother – and I have an older sister. We’re all still very close. It was rough growing up because my mother didn’t have anyone to lean on, but we got by and our love for each other is stronger because of it. So, I don’t hate the way I grew up because I learned a lot from it and I have really strong values because of it.

Absolutely. It’s great to hear that you and your family remain so close. What about interests and hobbies away from work?

I like to draw and paint. I don’t really have a specific type of art that I lean on or always go to, I just draw and paint whatever comes to my mind or whatever I’m feeling.

Also, I really like to play around with computers and electronics and things like that. I’ve always had an interest in that. I’m actually thinking about going back to school to get into computers just because I’m really good at it and everyone has always said I have been. So, I’m thinking about making a career out of it.

Terrific. I read also that you were in school to become an oral surgeon, is that correct?

Yes, that is correct. I did about five years of school. I currently have my dental hygienist certificate – I can be a dental hygienist, a dental assistant, or I can be in an office filing and doing clerical work. I only had a little bit of time left, but my school loans were so outrageous and I was in so much debt – because it’s very expensive to go to school to be an oral surgeon – that I needed to do something where I could make a lot of money so I could pay off some of those loans and I could go back in. So, that’s what I’m working on right now.

So that is something else you would like to pursue down the road as well?

Absolutely. My number-one goal that I want to fulfill is to finish school, get all the internships and externships under my belt, get my degree and open up my own cosmetic dental surgeon clinic. I’ve really always wanted to do that because if you’re going to do something you love, you might as well go all out the way you would really want to, you know?

Absolutely. How about favorites – favorite movie, T.V. show, musical artists and things like that?

Movies – I love movies! I watch like four or five movies a day. When I’m not working or doing something I have to do, I am on my couch watching a movie. So, as far as favorite movies, I have a lot of them, but my all-time favorite movie is Labyrinth with David Bowie. That was my favorite movie growing up as a kid. There is actually a part in that movie where these flamingo-like characters are running around popping their heads off. They’re trying to take the main character’s head off of her body and they can’t, so they’re like, “Hey, where’d you get a head like that?” And my mom used to always say that to me as a kid because I had this giant head growing up and my body grew into my head, so my mom still to this day is always saying, “Where’d you get a head like that?” (Laughs)

(Laughs)

I love that movie. It’s interesting and it’s really fun. But right now, my current favorite movie is based out of a book called We Need to Talk About Kevin. It’s a movie about a kid and his life growing up. He’s a mass murderer and they show all of his behavioral patterns growing up. It’s really, really good.

Favorite music? My all-time favorite album is Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours. I remember getting that CD when I was seven years old. I still have the same CD and there’s not a scratch on it, but it skips when I listen to it because I’ve listened to it so many times.

Current favorite music, I really like a band called Foster the People. They’re really good. I like their music, it calms me down and it makes me feel good.

Is there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise most people?

Hmm … I have to think of something really good if I want people to be surprised. (Laughs) One thing about myself that I think would surprise people would probably be that I am a huge romantic. I don’t show it and I don’t act like it and maybe my fans don’t see it, but I am a huge romantic. I can be very sweet and I love all that mushy-gushy stuff. (Laughs)

How about current and upcoming projects? Is there anything in the works that you would like to mention?

Well, I just got back into the industry. I took like a 6-7 month break and I just started working again a couple of weeks ago. So, the only things I have coming out are from websites. I just had a scene come out from Naughty America. I worked for Brazzers and I have a really good scene coming out with them. I worked for a Japanese company and I have a few scenes coming out there.

But I also am going to Japan in a few weeks to shoot. I’m not exactly sure what I’m shooting, but I know I am going there to shoot. I’m going to be getting more details soon.

I might be going over to Spain as well. I’ve been there once before, but I might be going there to shoot, too.

So, I have a lot of stuff that’s coming up that I’ll be working on, but it still needs to be scheduled. People should definitely keep an eye out because I’m going to be working a lot this summer and I might have a lot of things coming out.

Very nice. That sounds like a couple of pretty awesome trips, Spain and Japan.

I know. I’m excited. It’s going to be fun. (Laughs)

Awesome. To finish up, is there anything you wish to say to readers?

I would like to say – I know it sounds cliché – but I love my fans. I have the best group of fans ever. They obviously are fans of mine because I do porn and they like watching me have sex and everything, but they also like me for who I am as a person. They follow my blog, they read up on my personality and I answer their questions. They actually like me for who I am and I really, really appreciate that. I couldn’t ask for anything better from my fans.

Yes, that’s always great to see. Thanks, it was very nice talking to you and I appreciate you taking some time out of your day to speak with me.

No problem. Thank you, have a really good day!

BSG PR Press Release: Taylor Stevens Auction Raises One Thousand Dollars for Charity

leave a comment »

Cyberspace – Webcam goddess and performer Taylor Stevens has completed her auction of the 2 T-Shirts worn for the Stanley Cup Finals Games held in Los Angeles, California. Taylor made national and international headlines on sports websites and daily papers with her “Boobs Behind DeBoer” trending topic as she sat directly behind the New Jersey Devil’s bench for Game 4 and Game 6.

The winner, who goes by the name B. Coyle, said the following about Taylor, and her unique auction.”I became a fan of Taylor and started following her shortly after her diagnosis. She is one of the most entertaining, inspiring, hardworking, genuine and down to earth people I have ever had the pleasure of speaking with, beautiful inside out. The opportunity for her to donate to charitable causes close to her heart doesn’t surprise me she loves to give to people. She gives to her fans she gives back but she doesn’t give in. Taylor never takes a “poor me” attitude with the battles she’s faced and is facing. This was an easy decision for me. To put a smile on her face while doing good for others would be replicating everything she does every day. Now i get to own 2 pieces of history and her history. I’m honored to do this for her, for myself but most importantly for lls.org and obesity.org.

Taylor, a former top BBW fetish model who lost 180 pounds with much support from her devoted fan base, has endured a difficult year battling cancer and fighting for her life. Always grateful, Stevens has decided that the money raised via auction for the T-Shirt worn for Game 4 will go to ‘Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’,Www.lls.org, while the money raised via auction for the T-Shirt worn for Game 6 will go to The obesity society Www.obesity.org.

Rising Star Press Release: Casey Cumz Makes Final Nominations Cut in Urban X Awards Rising Star Female Category

leave a comment »

VENICE, CA – The finalists for the Urban X Awards are in and Casey Cumz has made the short list in the Rising Star Female category, one of only nine to make it for final consideration for the July 21 show.

Casey’s star has certainly been on the rise in recent months and XXX Wasteland’s Adam Wilcox took a moment in time and got some straight answers from the starlet in an interview posted this week.

In the piece she takes on the condoms controversy, about some of her favorite talent, how she grew up and the book she’s currently penning.

“A lot of the time, the sex you have in porn is not the same as the sex that you have outside of porn,” Casey told XXX Wasteland about condom usage in porn. “It’s very aggressive, it’s very fast-paced, it’s very rough a lot of times, and it’s a lot more extreme than what the average couple experiences. And sometimes condoms wouldn’t be so good in that situation and could actually cause damage.”

To read the full XXX Wasteland interview go to https://xxxwasteland.wordpress.com/2012/06/23/xxx-wasteland-exclusive-interview-casey-cumz/.

The 5th annual Urban X Awards will be held at Beyond the Stars Palace, 417 1/2 N Brand Blvd, Glendale, CA. For more information go to http://www.urbanxawards.com/awards. Follow them on Twitter @UrbanXAwards.

Exquisite Films Press Release: Fleshbot.com Hosting First Look at Xena: Warrior Princess XXX Production Stills

leave a comment »

June 28, 2012 — CHATSWORTH, Calif. – Fleshbot.com is the 24-hour exclusive home of NSFW (not-safe-for-work) production stills from “Xena Warrior Princess XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody.” The photos are the first XXX look at porn superstar Phoenix Marie as Xena and Lexi Belle as Gabrielle. Xena-philes have longed for a true lesbian tryst between the beautiful warriors, and the photos provide a glimpse of their dreams coming true.

To view the NSFW photos from “Xena Warrior Princess XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody,” visit http://straight.fleshbot.com/5926503/exclusive-a-hardcore-peek-at-xena-warrior-princess-xxx-an-exquisite-films-parody.

“Friends, this is a porn parody that powerfully needed to be made,” states Ottimo Massimo of Fleshbot.com. “We’re stoked that Exquisite Films decided to make our swords-and-sandals fantasies into a steamy reality. We’re also deeply touched that they’ve given us exclusive access to hardcore pics from the upcoming film, but honestly, you can tell this thing is going to be good without even seeing Gabrielle eat Xena out. Who could say no to a porn parody of ‘Xena,’ the role that made Lucy Lawless a household name?”

“Xena Warrior Princess XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody” will release on DVD in September.

“We hope these hot photos will satisfy some of the demand we’ve experienced ever since announcing the project last year,” says award nominated director Jordan Septo. “Fans have been dying to know which popular characters are paired together, and the answer is finally here. Xena definitely goes both ways, and her scenes are mind-blowing!”

Earlier in June, pop-culture site BleedingCool.com revealed new, SFW photos from “Xena Warrior Princess XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody” to much acclaim. The photos quickly made their way around the Internet, as fans speculated about the sex to come. To view the SFW photos, visit http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/06/13/pics-from-xena-warrior-princess-xxx/.

In October 2011, Exquisite Films undertook an international casting search for adult versions of two of the most iconic female action heroes in mainstream entertainment. The search led to Phoenix Marie as Xena and Chanel Preston as Lara Croft.

Under cover of the March release of “Tomb Raider XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody,” Septo quietly shot his adult rendition of “Xena.” After the critical acclaim “Tomb Raider XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody” received, critics and fans alike are eagerly awaiting the September release of “Xena Warrior Princess XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody.”

“Xena Warrior Princess XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody” brings back all the fan favorite characters from the hit TV show. In addition to Xena, the movie includes Gabrielle (Lexi Belle), Autocyclus (Tommy Pistol), Hercules (Rocco Reed), Ares (Tommy Gunn), Aphrodite (Nicole Aniston), Draco (Lee Stone), Cupid (Seth Gamble), Alti (Juelz Ventura), Jessica (Randi Wright), and Topaz (Chanel Preston).
