VENICE, CA – “Who are you to tell me about my sexuality?” asks Sovereign Syre in a new Playboy.com interview. She may be relatively new in the adult industry, but that doesn’t mean she can be pushed around or is anyone’s to be molded into their preconceived notion of who others think she is or who should be.
Sovereign is Sovereign, love it or leave it. After reading the Playboy interview, or seeing any of her amazing scenes, you’ll love it.
She’s doing girl/girl on camera and in real life, but she’s not going to be categorized just so she can fit into some category. She’s a woman of ideas and action. It didn’t take much time in front of the camera for Sovereign to know she wanted to be on the other side, too, and she is now working on directing.
“Once I was in it, I began to see things I wanted to see or do differently. Now when I try to think about doing boy/girl it’s hard for me to think of stories I think are hot. But when you say you want me doing girl/girl, I can think of a ton of stories that I think are really arousing. I think that because female pleasure is front and center of lesbian erotica, you can’t get away from it,” she told Playboy.
“A lot of porn is geared towards men and involves the male gaze, but [just because] that part is the part of our desire that grows and evolves to become the most sophisticated doesn’t mean that the other ones aren’t there. So for me girl/girl is cultivating this other element of desire that is dealing more with the female gaze.”
Her directorial debut will be Lesbian Surrender, for Filly Films, and it comes out next month.
“The first thing you should know is that one of the cardinal rules of girl/girl is that they’re in a world where men don’t exist,” she says of the upcoming release.
“But in my film, every character in the movie is involved with a man in some way. I feel that I can’t speak about women and pretend men don’t exist. A lot of times men are a major source of strife and redemption in a woman’s life. I wanted to create scenarios that reflect real life. There are no men in the movie, but they’re always part of the backdrop that creates the dramas in which these fantasies play out.”
Fans can get ready for her directing work by watching her performances. This week Lesbians Unchained from Girlfriends Films comes out, which stars Sovereign with Dana DeArmond among the a series of vignettes about criminal women.
“We play reformed convicts sharing a bath and plotting to scam our wealthy husbands out of their fortunes so we can run off together,” she says. “I think she’s one of the best performers working today, and I was really looking forward to working with her.”
Another Girlfriends Films Women Seeking Women 94, released last week, featuring Sovereign with Aaliyah Love, who will also appear in Lesbian Surrender. Sovereign also has a recent scene with Raylene was for Lesbian Psychodramas 13 (also Girlfriends Films).
