from www.examiner.com – With Hurricane Sandy leaving many on the East Coast without power, it’s time to break out the candles and rediscover romance. And what better way to celebrate than with this year’s Exxxotica Expo, the nation’s biggest event devoted to love and sex. (And porn.)

Highlights of this year’s three-day fest in Edison Nov. 9-11 include a seminar with adult legend Tera Patrick reading from her best-selling autobiography Sinner Takes All, the Exotic Car and Bike Show featuring over 100 custom vehicles, and a special Saturday performance by Naughty by Nature.

Also appearing at Exxxotica is three-time AVN Award winner Kristina Rose. In this exclusive interview, I spoke with her about the controversial Measure B on this year’s ballot, the social stigma and health risks that come with the job, and her infatuation with a certain underwear model-turned-Hollywood hunk.

Q: How was your Halloween?

My Halloween was so fun.

Q: Tell us about it.

It was super fun—I dressed up like a teddy bear. I figure I dress like a slut all year long, so I’m going to dress comfortable and warm on Halloween (laughs).

Q: How many furries came up to you that night?

(Laughs) I know, right? It’s kind of funny, because a lot of guys gave me compliments on my costume, and I was completely covered head to toe. I was wearing one of those one piece sleeper things with spaceships on it, and then I had this vest that has a teddy bear head hood. So I was completely covered up and not in a skimpy, sexy outfit at all, and these guys are like, “Oh, I like your costume.” (Laughs)

Q: I read that you first worked at the age of 18 for an adult website doing customer service. Any bizarre stories you can share with us?

Oh, my God.

Q: There’s always the crazies who call in and make your head explode.

One of the reasons I think I got this job was that it was just so funny. I processed credit cards so people can pay a monthly membership or get signed up for adult sites. And also technical support, like if you’re looking for something and can’t find it, or are having trouble not getting whatever. So guys would call up and they’re looking for something but they can’t find it—that’s the number one sign they’re looking for something weird (laughs). And it never fails—I would always, always get the adult babies, and I could call them out on the phone…it was the running joke of the office.

Q: They would just not know what they wanted when they called in?

They just act like bitches (laughs); very indecisive, like they don’t know what they want. Because they want someone to yell at them. They want to have that feeling. I don’t know, they’re weird (laughs).

Q: How long did you work there for?

I think two years or a year and a half. And then I was laid off because they moved the customer service overseas, and the only people that would respond to my résumé were adult-related companies, like for office jobs. Because even if you work for a job at a porn company, you’re going to see adult material, and a lot of people have problems with that. So they would see that I worked for this adult website…and that’s kind of how I was first approached to do porn.

Q: How exactly did that happen?

I was 19 and I was working as the assistant to the owner of the company, and they made content…and they said, “You’re young, you’re cute, you have a great attitude, you should do porn. You could make so much money and you have a really good head on your shoulders.” But I was dating this guy at the time and I’d been with him since I was 17, so I was like, “No, I’m not feeling that.” But after I left that job, up until I was 23, it just kept coming back up. I would get approached on the street, or I would have someone email me because of my MySpace pictures, whatever—stupid stuff like that. So finally, I was just like, “F*** it, I’m gonna try it.” (Laughs)

And that’s what I did—I did my first scene, and I made a deal with myself: Do the first scene. If you like it, then go from there. If you don’t like it, then just chalk it up to something crazy you did one time—it won’t be the first time. So I went, and I did it, and it was so easy. I thought I was going to be super nervous. It was kind of surreal, but I loved it. And in one day, I made more money than when I was slaving away 40 hours a week.

Q: You found your calling.

Yeah.

Q: Why do so many porn girls have an Amazon Wish List? Isn’t that what boyfriends are for?

I don’t have a f***in’ boyfriend! (Laughs) For me, this is how I view my Amazon Wish List: It’s my equivalent to what I call what normal actors should get—little residuals. I get paid a base amount to come do a scene and do a movie. And if fans like me and they want to tip me and they want to buy me a present or whatever, I feel like that’s for me. I like to send them stuff back, though—I put a little package together for them, a DVD or 8x10s, whatever. Some guys, if they buy me something super expensive and they want something specific like my panties or something like that or a custom video, I do that, too. And it works out in the end.

Q: What’s the next thing you really want on that list?

It’s a mannequin dress form—I need one so bad (laughs).

Q: A dress form?

Yeah, ’cause I sew and stuff. I just really started getting into it this year, and I’m making more and more stuff, and for all this stuff I want to make, I need a mannequin dress form. I’m probably just going to buy it myself, because I don’t want to wait anymore. I just put it on there a little while ago, but that’s the one thing I wanted the most. And a rug—I need a rug. It’s freezing in my living room.

Q: So to everybody reading this: Kristina Rose needs a mannequin dress form, and she’s freezing.

(Laughs)

Q: At Exxxotica, it a teeny bit odd to be in a room with so many people you’ve probably had sex with?

(Laughs) You know, I never really think about it like that, but now that you mention it, it’s kind of interesting (laughs).

Q: Is there a little counter that goes off in your head?

Like, “Oh, yeah, I f***ed that person.”

Q: Not a lot of people probably experience that.

I guess it depends on the person. People that I know really well, it’s probably not the first thing I’m going to think about. But maybe people that I’m acquaintances that I’ve worked with, that might instantly be the first thing that comes into my mind when I see them, like remembering the scene that I did with them—was it good or was it bad? Did I like them? (Laughs)

Q: Is it true you’re only doing girl/girl scenes now?

Yes, it is. Currently right now, I am only doing girl/girl. And I made that decision after the whole incident just recently with Mr. Marcus and the whole faking of the testing. I just really was shook by the whole thing, especially because last year in the industry, I felt like I was working with a lot of guys that I had never heard of or had seen before, and that I would never see again, and it just made me feel very uncomfortable.

So I changed my shooting style and I told my agent that I only wanted to do the A-list guys, performers I had worked with before. And I had a list of guys that I would work with—and Marcus was on that list. I just felt really betrayed that someone I had trusted with my body is going to lie and put so many people at risk. It just really upset me, and I felt like I needed a pause from it. To this day, I still feel like I’m not safe.

Q: That controversy was mainstream news. I take it you wouldn’t want to work with Marcus again?

No, never. And I think it’s really sad and pathetic that the porn industry is just kind of, “swept it under the rug,” back to shooting and acting like nothing happened.

Q: Is he back in the business?

He’s completely pretty much blackballed from the industry. Nobody wants to talk to him or have anything to do with him, because what he did was not okay. But then at the same time, I’ve been told that he’s shooting again, you know what I mean? That’s the thing with porn—it doesn’t matter what you do, it doesn’t matter how scummy you are; it will always accept everyone back (laughs).

Q: Los Angeles County is looking to make condom use mandatory for shoots.

I have my issues with that, too, on the Measure B thing. I don’t feel that the way the county is trying to regulate porn, with all the hazmat suits and the dental dams and all this and that—it’s not just, “oh, we want you to just wear condoms in porn.” I just feel like that’s ridiculous; it’s obvious here that there’s an agenda. And I also feel like, why does the county care so much about people in porn, people they consider to be throwaway people, in my opinion, instead of caring about the City of Los Angeles?

If this is the case, then you should probably enforce everyone in the county or the city or whatever, getting tested at least once a year for STDs, because there’s a lot of times when people try to come into porn, and we make them get tested for their very first time, and they find out they’ve had gonorrhea or chlamydia this whole time, on their very first test before they’re ever allowed to get into porn. Why do [they] care so much about us, but not everyone else? It just seems really weird.

But then, on the flip side, in porn I should have the right to say, “I want to use a condom,” and that shouldn’t affect whether I’m getting hired or not. I don’t understand why it’s not acceptable. If I feel comfortable with one particular guy, and I will let this guy and this guy and this guy do a scene with me with no condom, if you’re picking a different guy, then I will do the scene, but I will do the scene condom only, you know? Why can’t I have that choice? Why can’t that be a choice?

Q: What do you think will happen in the near future?

I really have no idea. I really couldn’t tell you; it could go either way. I’ll tell you one thing—I feel like if it passes and they try to enforce the condom law, basically what it’s going to do is close down a lot of companies. It’s going to shut down porn pretty much in L.A., and then what are a bunch of slutty, jobless people going to do?

Q: You have a real way with words, Kristina.

And then, how is Los Angeles going to make up for the revenue lost by all of the permits and things of that size so we can shoot movies in L.A.? It’s so stupid, and neither side, I feel, really genuinely cares about the performer and the health and the well-being. It’s all about politics, it’s all about power struggles, it’s all about someone’s got an agenda about something for something. And it irritates me, because I am a performer, and I do these scenes, and this is about my job that you’re talking about, and I really don’t have a say.

Q: Do you feel like there’s something missing now that you’re just doing girl/girl scenes?

It does make me sad. I’ve always enjoyed my job a lot and I’ve always had a lot of fun with it, but I made a promise to myself when I first got in the industry that as long as I woke up every day and I was excited to go to work, and I didn’t turn into a big, diva bitch or something like this, I would do this job.

But after the whole Marcus thing, the thought of getting up and going to do the scenes that I had booked just scared me. And no amount of money is worth that to me, the possibility of changing my life forever. And I feel like if we’re lying about a curable illness, this is just the start, you know?

Porn doesn’t have money like it used to; a lot of companies have gone away with piracy and all that. And a lot of people have been doing this for a really long time and they don’t have any other skills, you know? They’re not prepared for this. They thought that this was going to last forever, and now people are doing more desperate and desperate things, and it’s just too scary.

I won’t do that to myself. And then I’m supposed to do a scene scared and that’s going to shine through my performance? I’m not going down like that…it’s just sad, though, because I’ve really always enjoyed porn, and I feel like it’s just gotten really seedy.

Q: What AVN Awards are you up for this year?

They’re still doing nominations. Everyone submitted their pre-nom, and now AVN is watching all the movies that have been submitted to be nominated. Just before Thanksgiving is usually when they release the nominations. But I did submit nominations, and the thing I’m most proud of is the movie that Belladonna did with me called Kristina Rose: Unfiltered.

Q: What’s it like to attend the ceremony?

This year was different, because it was at the Hard Rock [Hotel & Casino Las Vegas]; it was kind of weird, because it was like the first time all over again. It’s always been at the same place over and over again the last few years that I’ve gone. It’s really fun, because it’s kind of cool because everyone from Porn Valley is pretty much all in one hotel, and we’re all at the [Adult Entertainment Expo] together, and we all go to the awards together. It’s kind of like summer camp, almost. A slutty summer camp (laughs).

Q: There’s that way with words again.

(Laughs)

Q: What things do you typically do to prepare for a scene?

It depends on who I’m working for and what kind of scene I’m working on and who I’m working with, you know? If it’s a performer that I’m really into, I will definitely be super excited about it and I’ll be thinking about it the day before. If it’s someone I’m really, really excited about, I always get to set way too early (laughs), like 20 minutes or something stupid. It’s really funny; I got called out on that a few times.

Q: You don’t get enough sleep when it’s somebody you’re really excited about?

Sometimes, because I’ll be really excited thinking about it, playing things in my mind, wondering how it’s going to be.

Q: That reminds me of when I was 16 and wanted to go to a KISS concert.

Yeah, right! Like when you’re in high school, that’s what you would do. That’s how I get sometimes.

Q: With all the extreme things you’ve done, have you been okay in the end because you took the necessary precautions?

No! (Laughs) I can pretty much guarantee you if a girl does [a particular sex act], she’s encountered some kind of problem at some point during her career, you know? When I first got into porn, even though I was kind of slutty, my body wasn’t used to that many different dicks (laughs), you know what I mean?

Q: Not from personal experience, but I hear you.

It’s like building up your immune system…[in the beginning] I would get, like, a stomach bug or whatever, but now I get what it is, I know my body’s used to it, so I don’t really have that kind of problem now.

Q: Do you still go for annual checkups in addition to the mandatory blood tests?

Oh yeah, for sure.

Q: Do they ever give you any advice about things not to do?

Yeah, they do. I’ve been going to the same doctor forever, so he knows what I do…and he forewarned me about different things to look out for. And I let him know what I’m doing on camera, so he can tell me what his suggestions are to things that he should look for or tests I should get done or whatever to just maintain my health.

Q: What about other infections? Have any of those things been a problem?

Everyone in the world has that s***. If you’re a woman and you haven’t had a yeast infection by the time you’re in your 20s, well, I f***in’ hate you, you know what I mean? (Laughs) Sometimes your vagina gets a cold.

Q: It’s not something that’s talked about a lot.

This whole thing about Measure B, it really disgusts me…neither side really cares about the health and the safety of the performer, and that’s just fact. It’s really a struggle over power, just two little kids in a sandbox fighting over a toy, and that’s it. They don’t really care who has it, they don’t care what happens to it, they just want it—they want control. Why are we singling out a group of people that are getting tested more than anyone else in the City of Los Angeles?

Q: I can’t think of any other industry that’s under so much scrutiny all the time.

I get it; we’re sluts, we do porn. It’s like, “Oh, it’s so taboo, they must be bad people, they must all be on drugs,” yada yada yada. Great, I get it; there’s a stigma on my job.

Q: Do you feel like you have to deal with that stigma all the time?

I will deal with that stigma forever, for the rest of my life. Even when I quit porn and I’m done with porn and all of that, for the rest of my life, I will deal with it. When no one remembers who I am or anything, someone will come out of the woodwork and in my retirement home point me out as the ho of the senior citizens club. If I ever have kids, it’s going to follow me, and it’s going to follow them. But it doesn’t really bother me that much. Because of that, I really do have a good sense of who is really a good person and cares about me for me, and who is just an a**hole.

Q: What other goals do you want to achieve in a film?

It’s hard for me to think of anything. Belladonna asked me, “What do you want to do? What are your fantasy scenes?” and I told her, and we did them in my movie Unfiltered that we released earlier this year. I have a secret fantasy: I want to f*** Mark Wahlberg.

Q: Where did your fascination with Mark Wahlberg begin?

(Sighs) Calvin Klein (chuckles). I just love him; he’s my favorite.

Q: You must be a big Ted fan.

You know what? That movie was made for me! (Laughs)

Q: I won’t say anything else and we’ll move on to the next question.

(Laughs)

It was a good movie. I liked it, it was cool.

Yeah.

Q: What are some memorable questions you’ve gotten from your fans on Tumblr?

Oh, my God (exhales).

Q: Or just one that stands out in your mind.

I get so many questions. Like, I get a lot of questions about people in situations with their girlfriend or their boyfriend. I once had a girl write and ask me, “I saw you post this picture on Instragram saying that you had a sweaty ass crack,” and she’s like, “my ass crack is sweaty, too, and I feel really self conscious about it around my boyfriend. I don’t know if my booty stinks,” blah blah blah. And I told her not to feel self conscious about it and to just date guys that like your booty stink (laughs).

Q: You’ve gotta love them in sickness, health and booty stink.

Yeah. If you don’t love someone’s booty stink, then you don’t really love that person at all.

Q: What do you think about when doing a scene?

Hopefully I’m not thinking about anything! (Laughs) Hopefully I’m working with someone that’s the s*** and is f***ing me good, and I’m just thinking about, “Oh, my God.” If not, then I’m definitely thinking about, what is going to make this a better f***? (Laughs) What can I do to step this person’s game up right now? What can I do to this person to make them so sexually aroused that they start f***ing me good?

Q: Is there any go-to play you have for that, or does it depend on the situation?

It depends on who it is. In porno years I’m like a dinosaur—I’ve been around for five years. So I pretty much know everybody (laughs) and I know what their thing is. Or I have a general idea, because I’ve been in it so long, if I’m working with someone new I can kind of get a sense of, oh, I think they like this or whatever, and I’ll go to that. Like if a guy’s a foot guy, then I’m going to incorporate my feet somehow into the scene so it’ll just bring him up a notch, you know? Even if it’s not a foot fetish theme, just knowing that’s something that turns him on, I know that it will help make the scene better.

Q: What do you think you might be doing if you weren’t in the business?

I don’t know. Like, I never thought I would be doing porn. If you told me I was going to be doing porn before I got in, I would have been like, “No way.” My main goal in life has always been to be happy. Every single day, no matter what it is, that’s just what I want to do. So that’s what I do…every single day until I die.

Q: Okay, last question—

(Laughs) When I was really little, I wanted to be an archeologist (laughs).

Q: Nice, like Indiana Jones. Is that where it started?

Actually, it did, to be honest. I was really into Indiana Jones.

Q: Same here. But then I found out that Indiana Jones’ life was more about just the classroom and not running from giant boulders and swinging from whips.

I know, when I found that out I was like, “F that.” (Laughs)

Q: You mentioned you’re not in a relationship now. Are they hard to maintain?

I’ve had relationships in porn. Some of them have been successful, because let’s be honest: No man wants to really seriously date a girl that’s going to work and getting smashed every day. Even though, to me, it’s just a job and to the person I’m working with it’s just a job, normal guys aren’t going to understand that, you know what I mean? Even if you do, your mind will f*** with you once you start having feelings. So it’s not really been as successful for me, but I’ve dated in porn. [Now] I don’t date in porn; I only date with guys that are not in porn.

Q: What are you looking for now?

As far as dating?

Q: A love match, or something like that.

I just want someone that I can hang out with, that isn’t full of bulls***, that has a giant penis, and that’s it (laughs). And lets me smoke as much weed as I want.
