XXX Wasteland Exclusive Interview: Aaliyah Love

with 2 comments

_92A4421While some performers enter adult entertainment spontaneously and others pursue the industry as a longtime ambition, Aaliyah Love’s road to Pornland has been paved with caution and contemplation.

Love began her XXX journey as a webcam model before transitioning to on-camera roles. Her performing career reached a new level last year when top studio Twistys named the Illinois native its April 2012 Treat of the Month. Since that time, Aaliyah has established herself as one of adult’s premier talents and is immensely popular with fans and industry members alike.

Aaliyah kindly granted XXX Wasteland a recent interview to discuss her entry into the adult business, acquiring the lead role in Wicked Pictures’ upcoming feature film Star Kissed and more.

You can visit Aaliyah online at her official website, AaliyahLove.com, and check out more of the starlet at the following links:

Let’s start at the beginning: Can you tell us how you initially became interested – and later involved – in the adult industry?

I was a broke preschool teacher living on the East Coast, going to college to get my degree in Elementary Education. I found an ad in the paper under “Adult Work” that was advertising a local webcam studio. I wasn’t sure exactly what that was, I just knew it involved nudity, which at the time I wasn’t comfortable with at all. To say I was shy and didn’t think much of my body is an understatement. But I wasn’t making enough money to pay my rent on my small apartment in the ghetto of Baltimore and I had to do something.

I carried that ad for the webcam studio around in my back pocket for over a month. About once a week I would call and talk to the guy who answered the phone; he would patiently answer my questions and then every time he would ask me to set up an appointment for me to come in and meet him, I would hang up on him, my heart pounding. It took me a long time to get the guts up to meet him, but I finally did one day, borrowing a short skirt and a pair of thong panties from my best friend, since I didn’t own anything like that. The studio owner loved me and said I could work there.

My first day on camera was my first time wearing lingerie, shaving my pussy (which I did a horrible job at), or touching a sex toy. Seriously, I flinched when he handed me a dildo – I was that naive/innocent.

My first night on camera I made more money in an hour than I usually did teaching 8 hours a day. I came back to do another 2 hours the next night, then I fell in love with webcams. It took me months to quit my job as a teacher and webcam full-time.

Within 4 months, I became the website’s top-earning girl. They asked me to become their spokeswoman. They told me I would have to drop out of college to do the job. I said yes. They started taking me to Playboy mansion parties, webmaster conventions and porn conventions. There, I learned everything I could about the Internet side of webcams, marketing and porn. I asked as many questions as I could and soaked it all up like a sponge. I met the right people to start a website for me and a photographer who I paid out of pocket to shoot scenes for me. I had no idea what I was doing, and I had a very narrow idea of what I thought men would find sexy and you can see it in my first scenes on my website, AaliyahLove.com. I laugh at those scenes now, but they make me smile because you can tell I was really enjoying myself, even if I had no clue what I was doing.

I soon met porn people to shoot “content trades” with me. These are the first g/g scenes on my website. I occasionally shot for other companies, but I mostly stayed home and webcammed. Those first few years I webcammed 10-12 hours a day, 5-7 days a week! I don’t know how I did it!

Then last year, April of 2012, Twistys made me their Treat of the Month. Suddenly, I was getting calls from all sorts of porn companies and photographers, including Girlfriends Films, Holly Randall, Penthouse, Brazzers, Babes, etc. I started webcamming less and shooting for other companies and my website more. It was the most exciting year of my life!

Then this year, April of 2013, I started shooting b/g scenes. My first two b/g scenes were shot for the company that in my opinion, I owe much of my success to – Twistys. I was offered an exclusive contract with Manwin and jumped at the chance. I shot 7 scenes total for them before my contract was up. It expired July 1 and ever since then I have been having the time of my life shooting b/g scenes for many companies I have had my eye on for a long time now; it’s like a dream come true for me. I have shot for Wicked, New Sensations, Elegant Angel, Teen Fidelity, and in my opinion, my two best b/g scenes so far are unreleased as of today, waiting to be posted at AaliyahLove.com.

_O1A2024How would you describe the transition from being a popular webcam performer to shooting for some of the top movie studios in porn?

Exciting, amazing – sometimes I can’t believe this is my life! I am proof that an average-looking, shy, mousy little girl from the Midwest can dye her hair blonde, move to California and become a porn star!

You have acquired some big parts this year, including starring roles in the upcoming Wicked Pictures feature Star Kissed and the recently released Aaliyah Love’s Female Obsession from Sunny Leone’s Sunlust Pictures company. Can you tell us about your appearances in those films?

The Wicked movie was very special to me and I was honored to get the lead role in such an amazing project. I have done some acting parts for Filly Films and Brazzers, but I would say up until Wicked, I never got a script longer than 10 pages long. You know, you deliver a couple of cheesy lines, then right into the action. When I got a 32-page script from the director, Barrett Blade, I knew this would be the most serious role I had played yet – not to mention it was a romance story, which I hoped to get into once my contract with Manwin was up. Romance porn was and is one of my biggest goals for my b/g career and I was so lucky for that to be my very first role the day after my contract ended! It was such an exciting and fun experience and I just can’t wait to see the finished product! I really think the fans are going to love this one!

Your official website is AaliyahLove.com. Can you tell us about the site and what those who sign up for membership can expect?

AaliyahLove.com is my passion project. All of my best work has gone into this website. Since day one, I have updated with new content six times a month and every one of those scenes is still available on my website today for members. Every Wednesday, I update with a new pic/video set. The pic sets are anywhere from 80-130 pics and the videos are 10-45 minutes long, most being about 15-20 minutes long. Then every other Friday, I update with a “bonus set,” which is usually either a small picture set or a behind the scenes video. All of my videos are in HD and all pics and vids are downloadable. I’d say sixty percent of the content and all of the most recent content is exclusive and can only be found on my website. There’s all sorts of solo and g/g scenes and soon to be some very hot b/g scenes.

I also used to do a free webcam show for members once or twice a week until this year. Each of these webcam shows was recorded and is also available on my website for members to watch. I will be starting these shows back up by October and there will be a schedule posted for when this happens.

Members also enjoy many perks, such as I will follow any members on all social media websites – Twitter, Tumblr, FetLife, etc. – and they can directly E-mail me anytime.

I put more love and effort into my website than anything else I have ever done. I try to give my members what they want and am always asking for feedback from the fans. My team and I have worked my butt off to make AaliyahLove.com as great as we can and we all care so very much about it, and I think it shows.

Let’s learn a little bit about Aaliyah Love, the person. Can you tell us where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up?

I grew up in a small town in Illinois amongst cornfields and … that’s about it. We were poor, but always happy, never really aware of what we went “without.” I grew up with a good family, two brothers and lots of pets.

I was kind of a dork in school. I didn’t have many friends and I got picked on a lot. But I have mostly fond memories of my childhood. I did and still do have a great relationship with my family – sorry to ruin anybody’s fantasy of the broken porn star with an abusive childhood!

What are some of your interests and hobbies outside of work?

I don’t have much free time lately; my life is basically shooting and running my website right now. But in my off days, I like to go to the beach. Sometimes I ride my bike and I recently started roller skating on the boardwalk, although I’m not that good at it. I’m already a clumsy person and put me on roller skates … watch out! I fall at least once every trip to the beach, but I just keep on getting up and trying again!

I enjoy taking yoga classes, I wish I had more time for them. I’m a movie buff and love going to see new movies or watching my faves over and over again on DVD. I have a little puppy who doesn’t see me enough and I love taking him to the dog park or taking him on short hikes, but he’s little and gets tired easily. Sometimes he gives up half-way and I have to carry him!

_O1A2301Are there any more current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

So many! Star Kissed by Wicked Pictures, directed by Barrett Blade, should be coming out in the next few months.

I just shot a g/g feature for Penthouse, I believe the title will be Blondes for Bondage, directed by Francois Clousot. I did two hot g/g scenes involving bondage, whips, strawberries and anal toys. This movie should be coming out in the next few months and should be hot, hot, hot, for anybody who likes my g/g work!

I also have b/g scenes coming out for Brazzers (look for the PLIB scene where Johnny Sins plays a panty thief. I came up with the concept of the scene and had one of the best times I have ever had on set that day. I can’t wait to see this scene myself!), Teen Fidelity, Elegant Angel and many other companies that shoot b/g scenes. I always promote my latest scenes on my Twitter, so you can always watch me there for updates.

I also just wrapped on shooting my own feature, which is currently unnamed. It consists of two solo scenes, an interview, two g/g scenes and two b/g scenes. I cast all of my fave people to fuck, I picked the sexiest locations I could find and I wrote a mini-script/scenario for each scene. Each scene features different aspects of sex that I enjoy – basically, I wrote six of my biggest fantasies down and hired my friends to come act them out with/for me! It was an amazing experience and I’d like to thank my photographer, Lyndell, for seeing my vision and putting up with my perfectionism throughout, and Jon Blitt for believing in my directing abilities and letting me take the reigns and do exactly as I wanted with the scenes. When they do come out – and I don’t have a date for them yet – the scenes will be exclusive to AaliyahLove.com for a few months before it comes out on DVD. Once those DVDs are available, I will be doing my best to get one into the hands of every one of my fans!

In closing, is there anything you wish to say to readers?

I want to thank all of my fans throughout the years. Without you, none of this would be possible. I wouldn’t be living this amazing life in California, having sex with the most beautiful people in the world, shooting hot sex scenes for you all to enjoy. I am so very grateful for you all; there is a special place in my heart for people who go out of their way to support me in any way that they can and those who spend their hard-earned money on my porn/webcams.

For those of you who are just getting to know me, please Tweet me, join my website, E-mail me, reach out and let me know who you are! I love any and all interaction with the people who jerk off to me!

And as long as you keep on watching and coming back for more, I will be here to act out your dirtiest fantasies and give you something worth watching!
