“I don’t think I’d ever do porn again. I once did a few sex scenes with my then-boyfriend but I think it’s fair to say that we both regret it now. It was just in the beginning of my career and I was not thinking clear. I didn’t know what I know now. The idea was that those videos would be exclusively hosted on a paid site featuring amateur sex. I was too naive to think that it would stay that way – now it is all over the Internet. The whole experience of performing and shooting it ourselves was the most challenging part. We were nervous and realized that having sex and filming it for visual consumption are two different things. I didn’t know then that many amateur sex moves are filmed by professionals so, while the sex is real, a couple doesn’t have to think about the camera work and can stay in passion and true emotions. It was a valuable lesson and experience for me.
But if I would ever decide to do porn again it would be for ideological reasons not financial or to make anyone else happy. I don’t believe that I’m at that point in my life where I have to do porn for the money. If I’d do anything like that I want it to have a meaning, to support something that I believe in personally. For example, I was doing World Orgasm Championship videos because I love the cause they are promoting – female pleasure and orgasm. The money was not great and I knew I was crossing the line as a model, as many people will see this as porn, but I thought promoting the cause of female pleasure was greater than my personal concerns. To this day, I’m puzzled how little attention our society pays to educate and promote female pleasure, be it by giving oral sex to a woman or teaching a woman to please herself. I think it is up to us women to lead that change and this is why I participated in those Championships. I want women to learn to enjoy and feel sexual pleasure and I think this kind of work with a strong educational or ideological foundation is something that I want to work on myself, like doing my own project.
Right now I believe that there is another problem in society that needs to be actually addressed. I’ve done a few nude shots with black men – I mean there was no sex at all, just posing, and yet it created a shit storm of online comments. Some people called me “big black cock slut” while others hoped I would start doing interracial porn, DP, gangbangs, it was just a question of short time for them. While the first group was concerned with my purity and innocence, the latter wanted to see me being destroyed and punished by black men. Before all this happened I didn’t even think about black/white ideology. So I took it really personally – I didn’t think anyone had a right to judge me for something that I chose to do myself and show to the world. Understand that these were not pictures that where stolen from my iPhone, but pictures that I myself uploaded on my Twitter. The pictures show something that I personally liked and wanted to share with my fans. Yet some people spent hours commenting and preaching their personal beliefs as if their beliefs were the only right ones. I always refuse to label or stereotype other people – recognizing the complexity of human experience. I live my life according to my own rights and wrongs, and not according to someone’s expectation of me as a white woman, a wife, or girlfriend. I respect other people’s choices even if they go against my own values and I only ask other to do the same for me.
I want to be clear here – I love athletic bodies and black men are often genetically very fit, and naturally there are lots of white men who are fit too. But when it comes to black men I love the contrast of skin – the sensory, the visual experience of interplay of black and white skin, and I often find that black men have a huge charisma. That, and a playful attitude are far more important for me sexually than the size of their dicks, a thing that most white men seem to have issues with.
My ideology is that women should be able to pursue their sexual experiences as much as men do, if they want. And it is just not the case today. A man who once sleeps with a big chested woman is not labeled as a “big-boob lover”, but a women who sleeps with a black guy is immediately labeled as “BBC slut”, “black owned slut”. What upsets me is that if both the experiences were one-offs, men’s sexual experience is seen as a natural path in sexual exploration while the women’s is seen as committing to a life-long choice. It’s a sign of great inequality that male sexual experimentation is seen as normal but women doing the same thing are seen as immoral social rebellion that must be controlled, stopped and punished. Intellectually and logically this doesn’t make any sense to me.
Today women are still not free to pursue and explore variations of male genetics and should be satisfied with what is available. Compare that to men’s active sexual life of exploring the best of female genetic variations. Thus, I think interracial sex has a much deeper meaning than porn entertainment – it ignites a discussion of female sexuality and choice and I always support this discussion. But I do recognize that most of interracial porn online is very male dominated, humiliating and degrading to a woman, positioned as a punishment to a woman with a strong sexual drive. I think there is some fetish element of white women serving black men and I do understand that some women might be turned on by the feeling of sexual humiliation and degradation as long as it is safe. But I think I would want to see more of a female perspective videos, where I as a woman am in control of my own experience – where I’m not a victim but an equal partner. I want to see more female porn directors in general and especially in interracial porn as it is such a hot and important social topic. That’s what I may be doing one day.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: This piece is based on our interview with Katya Clover. We’ve worked together with Katya to make it into a condensed and easy to read piece for this set. Instead of usual Q&A we’ve decided to go for a full text, stripping the original questions out. We wanted the pictures in the set to reinforce the interview so we asked Katya if we could do a small alteration to a few pictures to bring up attention. See if you notice what it is.
