Micah Moore Interviewby Ray | December 30th, 2006
“Public school was where I started smoking, drinking, having sex, hanging-out with bums… You know, the usual.”
MICAH MOORE: I just had some tofu.
RAY: Are you a vegan?
MICAH: How’d you know?
RAY: Because a carnivore would never eat that shit.
MICAH: [Laughs] That’s what [Bad Ass] Frank told me. He’s been giving me shit about it. Tonight I’m gonna sneak some tofurkey-jerky into his beef jerky sticks. Then when he says how good they are, I’m gonna say “haha… You’re eating bean curds!”
RAY: He’s eaten worse.
MICAH: Really?! Like what?
RAY: Just read some of his blogs… You’re voice is different than I expected.
MICAH: Yeah… I’ve always had a deep, manly voice.
RAY: How young are you?
MICAH: I’ll be 19 tomorrow.
RAY: You also seem older than 19.
MICAH: I’ve grown up more than most my age.
RAY: Where are you from?
RAY: How did you get into porn?
MICAH: My roommate and I, McKenzee Miles, started getting it together after we met working at [a coffee shop]. We shot with this really sketchy photographer in Portland. You know, the typical bullshit. “Blowjob, no camera? Okay, cool. Anal for $300? Shit, rent the motel!” One day we realized he wasn’t legit because he’d never even bothered to get our I.D’s. Uncool. So then we met another fellow. He’s an agent in Florida. We worked with him, then I had to fly back home to graduate high school in June. Eventually we terminated our business with him. The relationship wasn’t so great. It was kind of like puppy love — It sounded good, but then it just turned to shit. McKenzee and I wanted to move out to L.A. because porn stars aren’t really accepted in Beaverton, Oregon. So we packed-up our shit and hit the road.RAY: From baristas to boy/girl… That’s quite a jump.
MICAH: You’d be surprised! We were working at a coffee shop that was full of girls. Half of them were lesbians. The other half didn’t know what the hell they were. McKenzee and I were young… And you know, doing whip-its in the back. They didn’t take too kindly to that. So we started stripping at a club. We didn’t take it very seriously. We were doing the robot on stage and shit like that. [Laughs] It didn’t go over very well. By the way, Vanessa Lynn just grabbed my ass.
RAY: Vanessa Lynn is notorious for that.
MICAH: Yeah, true. So stripping didn’t really work-out. I didn’t take it too seriously… And then we got in trouble for doing whip-its with all the girls in the back room of the place we danced at. It was crazy. I mean, people were shooting-up all kinds of drugs back there and they were getting mad at us for whip-its? So lame.
RAY: So then you decided to move to Florida…
MICAH: Yes. And I can’t say it was a completely awful experience because Florida was where we did our first real scenes. We were like “Oh! There’s actually people doing your makeup and taking our ID’s? Cool!” It was legitimate compared to our experience in Oregon. The agent who I will not name — He was the only bad experience down there. All the companies I worked with I enjoyed thoroughly.
RAY: What brought you to BadAss Models?
MICAH: After we decided to finish business with the sleazy Florida agent, we listed ourselves with SexyJobs.com. We made dumb little websites so people could see our photos and contact us. We got a bunch of different emails. “Wanna escort? Can I be your sugar daddy? Join my agency!” Etc. But the reason I opened Frank’s email was because it said “Badass Models”. I was like “fuckin’ shit… I wanna be Badass.” I thought it was catchy. So I contacted him and we hit it off. He’s a sweet guy. I have absolutely no complaints. I’ve heard some horror stories about other adult agencies in L.A. But I’m not putting my foot in my mouth.
RAY: Not yet.
MICAH: [Laughs] Yeah, give me a few months…
RAY: Or a few drinks… So where can people find Micah Moore?
MICAH: I’m on AssParade.com
RAY: AssParade is the website with videos and photos of guys fucking girls with big, round asses, right?
MICAH: Yeah… And I have a big, round ass. [Laughs] Go figure.
RAY: Vanessa Lynn also did AssParade. She has a big, round sexy ass.
MICAH: Yeah, that website is hot. In my scene, me and this chick are washing a car and we end-up fucking some guy.
MICAH: And my video on InTheVIP.com That was fucking awesome. Me and McKenzee did that scene together.
RAY: InTheVIP.com is the reality website with videos of club parties and house parties that turn into full-blown sex orgies, right?
MICAH: Yeah. I also just started doing some DVDs and have a few boxcovers. You can find Micah Moore in Almost Jailbait 5, Nut The Face, Rich Little Bitch, Muff Bumpers, Teen Dreams 13, What An Ass! #3, SoCal Coeds 4, BombShell Bottoms 2, and of course, Whale Tail #3.
RAY: What do you have coming up?
MICAH: I just found out today that I’m going to be going to San Francisco. I’ve never really done any bondage. I’ve never been into it. But I heard about this one and I’m pretty excited about it.
RAY: Whenever anybody mentions shooting in San Francisco, I immediately know there’s bondage involved.
MICAH: I once caught a little guy in San Francisco who was snapping pictures up girl’s skirts. Sent his ass to jail.
RAY: You’re kidding.
MICAH: True story. I was at this store looking at skirts and I heard this “click” and I turned-around. Normally, I’m not a violent person, but adrenaline took over. I was like “what the fuck are you doing, dude?!” So I ran after him, grabbed his shirt, and he threw the camera at me. It caused a huge commotion. A bunch of people stopped. We called the police and they escorted him to jail.
MICAH: Yeah. I do what I can.
RAY: What’s funny is, all he had to do was wait a few months and he could find crystal-clear photos of your ass online.
MICAH: [Laughs] Exactly!
RAY: But I guess there’s no thrill in that…
MICAH: Wanna know what isthrilling? I used to be obsessed with Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen. It was kind of ironic because we just shot a scene at the house that they grew up in. I fuckin’ peed in my pool when I found out.
RAY: I hear a lot of porn is shot there.
MICAH: That’s so awesome.
RAY: Did you roll with a bad crowd growing-up?
MICAH: Actually, I went to Catholic school until I was 16.
RAY: That explains everything.
MICAH: No shit, right? After that, I told my parents I would kill myself if they didn’t let me go to a public school. They must have believed me because I ended-up there. Public school was where I started smoking, drinking, having sex, hanging-out with bums, wearing the same thing for months in a row, growing dreadlocks… You know, the usual.
RAY: Who introduced you to sex?
MICAH: It was in Bend, Oregon. It was new year’s eve. I was 16. The snow was five-feet high… I was a little gone… And before I knew it, my virginity was gone too. However, I realized the next morning that his dick may not have actually gone inside me. I think he tried, but I found out later that it was his first time as well. It was interesting. That was my first sexual experience.
RAY: Where did his dick go?
MICAH: [Laughs] You know, I have no idea to this day. I’m pretty sure it didn’t go up any other holes…
RAY: Do you remember your first really good experience?
MICAH: Oh yeah. A bunch of my friends are in bands and they play different venues in Portland. For some reason I was really attracted to the singer/guitarist for this one band. So I made it my goal for the night to shack-up with him. And it happened. During the show, he wanted some cigarettes, so I threw my pack up on the stage. At the end of the song, I thought “shit — I don’t have any cigarettes left!” So I told him I got carried away. I told him I only meant to throw one cigarette, but I ended-up throwing my whole pack. And he was like, “okay cool — I thought you wanted to hang-out or something but, cool, here are your cigarettes back.” I felt like such a bitch! So later, when he was over signing autographs at this table, I asked him if he wanted to go smoke with me. One thing lead to another, and I ended-up in the back of his tour van. After some making-out, I threw my bloody tampon out the door and we went at it!
MICAH: [Laughs] Sorry about that. Delete.
RAY: Was this a famous band?
MICAH: It was… Um… [Laughs] A popular band. I always add a little ‘Debbie Downer’ at the end of stories. Sorry about that.
RAY: How has becoming a porn star affected you?
MICAH: Well, I thought it would kind of fuck with me a little bit… You know, mentally. But it’s actually made me more down to earth. I know it sounds clich?©, but I’ve seen all the fucked-up ways other people can get, and it makes me say “fuck no… I won’t become un-grounded like that.” It’s made me realize that there will be people who are always going to be in your life, even if you start having sex on camera. And there will be others who will call you a fucking slut. But obviously they weren’t real friends to begin with. That’s the way I look at it. Water under the bridge. I’ve become a lot more comfortable with myself. Going to work is fun these days. It’s better than making somebody’s latte and hearing them complain that there’s not enough shots in it. Porn pays a little better, too.
RAY: Are you in a relationship now?
MICAH: No comment.
RAY: Do you enjoy girls in your personal life?
MICAH: The only girl in my personal life is McKenzee Miles.
RAY: Tell me something sexy from your past.
MICAH: One time back in Portland, a friend of mine came in from out of town. We went to a show and then to a skate park. We were shoulder-tapping for a 24 pack of PBR back in our minor days. So he and I were skating and drinking and it started raining. So we go behind the skate park and… you know… we start gettin’ a little frisky… And this bum comes-up and says “hey, home much for a beer? Or can I just watch?” [Laughs] It was really akward. Kind of a buzzkill.
RAY: Did he watch you get it on?
MICAH: [Laughs] Yeah, actually he did.
RAY: That isn’t very sexy.
MICAH: Well… We finished-it-off on the bus ride home. That was hot. I was drunk and horny… I had to finish the job.
RAY: What has been the wildest thing you’ve done on camera?
MICAH: Definitely the scene I did for InTheVIP.com It was really crazy and fun. Like I said, it was with my roommate McKenzee. There was another girl and two guys. My roommate and I and a guy did the wheelbarrow. We got this awesome picture of it. Another favorite thing I did was doing a scene with McKenzie and sticking-on a strap-on and fucking her doggystyle. Oh my god! That was so much fun… And then popping on her with Cetaphil. That was for AmateurTeenKingdom.com
RAY: Wow… Holy shit. Amateur Teen Kingdom. Is that site still around? That blows my fucking mind.
MICAH: It’s insane. I get lost just looking for things on it.
RAY: I remember looking at that site back in like 1995. What were you doing that year?
MICAH: Um… I was 7 years old.
RAY: I just got douche-chills.
RAY: Aside from creepy photographers and shady agents, anything else in porn give you a buzzkill?
RAY: Anal turns you off?
MICAH: Yeah. I might get into it later… But I had an experience that ruined my perspective. I was doing a boy/girl/girl and the girl shit on my chest — Like fuckin’ diarrhea-style shit. It happened on an Evil Angel set. I’m not gonna say who the girl was. I felt bad. She was really embarassed. I realize the girl couldn’t control it. But still… You know… How am I gonna find anal sex stimulating when a girl takes a giant shit on my chest? It was pretty fucked-up. So I’m off anal. I haven’t ventured into that hole yet. It stinks.
MICAH: I’ve heard so many stories about guys pulling-out and having to use 20 baby-wipes on their dick. It’s like fuck! How is that hot? People don’t realize what porn stars have to go through.
RAY: That’s why they call it ‘movie magic.’
MICAH: [Laughs] For sure! Have you ever seen the movie Orgazmo?
RAY: One of the greatest films of all time.
MICAH: Oh my gosh… My brother just gave me that DVD. It’s so fucking hilarious!
RAY: Agreed. By the way, did you realize that if you repeat your name quickly, it sounds like a wah-wah porno guitar?
MICAH: Oh! Like — ‘Bow-Chicka-Bow-Wow…’
RAY: Yeah, but it’s like ‘Micah-Micah-Moore… Micah-Micah-Moore…’ Was that intentional?
MICAH: [Laughs] That’s hilarious! But no, that wasn’t the motivating factor.
RAY: Is it because you’re into Michael Moore?
MICAH: That may have had something to do with it, subconsciously… I do like his films.
RAY: How did your family react to your decision to do porn?
MICAH: Actually, my brother asked me if I wanted to be in a scene with him after he found out what I was doing. He was like, “That’s cool… When you go down to California, maybe I can visit and be in a scene or something…” It wasn’t the response I thought I’d get. He then told me that he used to be an escort for S&M couples.
MICAH: [Laughs] He said it was hard coming home, having mom wash his shirts and asking him why there was blood all over them.
RAY: So he was being paid to torture couples?
MICAH: Actually, I think it was couples that were paying to torture him. I don’t know. I didn’t ask. I didn’t really want to get into it.
RAY: How old is he?
MICAH: He’s 21. So, yeah, he was pretty young when he was doing this.
RAY: How did the rest of your family react to you becoming a porn star?
MICAH: Once one of them knew, they all found out. My 25-year-old brother did not take very kindly to it. It came to his attention after a bunch of his friends found me on AssParade.com They were like “dude, I saw your fucking sister on AssParade!” He got a hold of me and was like, “What the fuck?! I can’t believe you’re doing this!” So he got in the car and drove down to California and tried to take me home. Once everybody found out, all the people I knew in high school started contacting me saying stuff like “Hey… Remember that one time when you loaned me that cigarette? Well, um, I just saw you on AssParade. Wanna fuck?” [Laughs] So it turned into an ugly scene with my brother, but eventually it all got worked-out. As for my parents, it took them a while… But they still love me.
RAY: Are your parents still together?
MICAH: Yeah. My mom is okay with it. But my dad definitely isn’t. He explained his views of me as a person now. But I take it in stride.
RAY: Aside from porn, what are you into?
MICAH: I really enjoy philosophy. I’m really into studying the way people think. I love that kind of stuff. Philosophy and psychology.
RAY: What’s your philosophy on life?
MICAH: I don’t have a certain philosophy to follow. I’d hate to pick something and then have it work against me at some point. I like taking certain readings from people. Right now I’m reading Joseph Campbell. I just got one of his phrases tattooed on my back in Arabic. It reads “Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn-out the pain.”
RAY: Do you have pain in your life?
MICAH: Everybody does, but I’m not gonna dwell on it. You just gotta find joy and say ‘fuck the pain.’ Otherwise you will find yourself hating the world and never wanting to leave the house.
RAY: Do you swallow?
MICAH: [Laughs] Hell no… I’m vegan, remember?
RAY: You’re that much of a vegan?
MICAH: Well, I have different outlooks on things. Take honey, for example. Honey is something most vegan’s wouldn’t eat. But if a bee were going to sting me, I would probably try and kill it. I wouldn’t kill a cow, however.
RAY: Because cows are cute.
MICAH: It’s all about where you draw the line. Insects kind of get to me, but I’m not so crazy that it upsets me to walk on the fucking ground. It’s a personal thing. If you’re trying to prove yourself as “the ultimate vegan”, then cool beans. But I really don’t give a shit about that. I just do it for myself. People do what they want to do. I’m not gonna yell at someone for eating their steak in front of me, but I respect the people more who go out and kill their own. At least it’s not factory-farmed bullshit. If I had to eat meat, I’d rather know where it comes from. I’d probably eat human meat before I ate an animal. People are assholes. [Laughs] I just watched the freakiest documentary on cannibals. I used to be so scared of them when I was young. When I went camping, tt was always my biggest fear — That people would crawl-in my tent and eat me.
RAY: Is cannibialism a big problem in Oregon?
MICAH: Yes! There was a big huge cannibal craze a couple years back…
RAY: I never heard that.
MICAH: Because I just made it up, that’s why.
RAY: What type of men are you attracted to?
MICAH: Bad boys. Tattoos. Rock stars. I have this huge thing for tight pants.
RAY: Do you ever truly get-off during your scenes?
MICAH: Yes. Although sometimes when I’m not into it, I’ll just go through the motions. But I’m a very sexual person in real life, so most of the time I actually get into it. About 100% of the time when I’m doing solo, I get off. Especially when I’m using The Rabbit. I just got one for my birthday. I’m very excited. But during scenes with other people, I would say I get off 80% of the time with girls, and 70% of the time with guys. I get off with girls more because girls know how to eat another girl out. They know what a girl likes. I like shooting scenes that are very passionate and very natural. No stopping or starting… I did a scene like that once with Ashley Gracie. That girl can fuckin’ eat some good pussy!
RAY: What’s your favorite thing to do sexually?
MICAH: My favorite thing is to be eaten-out. [Laughs]
RAY: Is there anybody you would never work with again?
MICAH: There are people that I was not pleased to work with, yes. But I realize there are going to be a lot of situations like that. It’s not like I can do anything about it. For instance, there are some people that are a little too fat for me. There are others who don’t have any rhythm or know what they’re doing. Some people say things like “Stare into my eyes… Make love to me… Pretend we’re at home.” It’s like, dude I’m gettin’ fucking paid for this. I am not gonna pretend like I’m at home with you. But, hey, to each his own. Whatever gets them off… As long as they pop.
RAY: “Just pop and cut my check.” Right?
MICAH: [Laughs] Exactly… I’m very professional!
RAY: That’s kind of creepy.
MICAH: Did it give you wood? I could take things down a notch and talk about that messy anal scene again…
RAY: Please don’t.
MICAH: [Laughs] It gets worse… I don’t even want to get into the whole flatulation thing.
MICAH: Well, sometimes if the male talent is being an asshole, and if I feel like I have to fart, well, fuckin’-shit, I don’t hold anything back. If I gotta fart, I’m gonna fart. I’m a farter. I just go for it, ya know? So I’ll usually wait until they’re down there lickin’ my asshole and then I let it rip.
MICAH: Aren’t I so hot? [Laughs] How’s your wood doing?
RAY: It isn’t. So what do you say to the guy after that?
MICAH: I say “Oh my god! I can’t believe I did that! I thought that was just a queef!”
RAY: This may be an poorly-timed question, but has anyone you’ve worked with tried to continue things off camera?
MICAH: Not after getting farted-on! [Laughs] But I’ve been told that you a pretty stalk-able guy, mister.
RAY: Who told you that?
MICAH: I cannot reveal my sources.
RAY: Hmm. Have you ever romanced talent off-camera?
MICAH: [Laughs] I’ve had some experiences. People are interesting.
RAY: Are you going to Vegas for the Adult Entertainment Expo in January?
MICAH: Fuck yeah! I went to Erotica-LA and that was fun. But I’m excited for Vegas. I’ve heard a lot fun shit. I actually haven’t been to any parties since I’ve been out here in L.A.
RAY: I thought for sure I’d see you at that Van Halen / Ninn Worx party.
MICAH: I didn’t even hear about that shit, man… You gotta keep me in the loop. Just remember I can’t really plan very far ahead.
RAY: What nationality are you?
MICAH: Native American, Russian, German, Irish. The whole shebang.
RAY: What’s your most distinguishing feature?
MICAH: My big ass. People say I get it from my dad.
RAY: What do you do for fun?
MICAH: I like eating food. I like meeting beach bums and little people that sell things on the Venice boardwalk. I like to go to independent movies. I like to do random shit, like shoot spitballs at people from bushes. I like whip-its, too. McKenzie and I like to go to Denny’s. We try to hit every one in a 50 mile radius of us. We don’t like to go to the same one every night because they’ll start to wonder.
RAY: The Denny’s on Sepulveda and Burbank has a bar.
MICAH: Hell yeah it does! And it gets Wi-Fi, too. It picks it up from the hotel. We should go there some night and play on MySpace at Denny’s.
RAY: Wow… Life in the fast lane.
MICAH: [Laughs] I blog all the time about things. How I feel. How I feel people feel about me… Everything. A lot of my blogs are gibberish to most people.
RAY: Kinda like your emails.
RAY: Did you grow up wanting to be in porn?
MICAH: I got into porn because I fell into it. This was not planned. I didn’t grow up wanting to be a porn star. It just happened. At the beginning we were like “what the fuck are we doing?” But I love the people that I meet. They are the most down-to-earth individuals. I’m sure there are some crazies, but I’ve met so many who are so accepting. I just love it. When I first got into it, I got all this bullshit from everybody. But look — If you’re not in it, and you’re not willing to listen to what I have to say about it — Then fuck you. I’m done defending myself. Porn is taboo to so many people. But they don’t look past the stigma. They just look at porn the way it’s perceived. But come on, everybody fucks. I think it’s awesome that people do it and can make good money doing it. I’m sure there are different levels of porn that are fucked-up, but If you can go to work and do what you love and get paid for it, why the hell not? The minute I start to question something I’m doing, I’ll stop. But right now, I’m into it. I love it.
RAY: What kind of music are you into?
RAY: Favorite movies?
MICAH: The movie that influenced me most in life and probably has to do with my current mindset is Girl, Interrupted. My dad made me return that because I just watched it over and over. He thought I was going crazy. But Angelina Jolie is my idol. I watched that movie during a shitty time in my life, and I took a liking to some of the characters. I just really like how raw that movie is.
RAY: Why is Angelina Jolie your idol? Because of her work in Africa, or is it those DSL’s?
MICAH: [Laughs] I liked her when she was dating Billy Bob Thornton and they had each other’s blood hanging on their neck. I was doing weird shit like that. But then she became a little more P.C. I just like the way she’s changed and evolved, but how she still doesn’t give a fuck about anything that doesn’t matter. I like the way she looks at things differently and accepts them for what they are. I also like the film Natural Born Killers.
RAY: Only love can kill the demon… Do you identify with Mallory Knox?
MICAH: [Laughs] Grrrr… Where are you right now…?
RAY: Any favorite books?
MICAH: The one I’m reading — The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell.
RAY: I remember watching a PBS mini-series on that book. Fascinating stuff.
MICAH: The book blows my mind. He has a way of explaining things that open your eyes to things that you would normally never have thought of. I’ll let you borrow it. Do you like to read?
RAY: Yes. Right now I’m reading Christy Canyon’s autobiography.
MICAH: Who’s she?
RAY: One of your predecessors. A huge porn star from the 80′s and 90′s.
MICAH: I’d like to read that. Is it good?
RAY: It’s interesting. I just finished Jerry Butler’s book as well.
MICAH: We should trade. I’ve never read the Jenna Jameson book. I see a lot of girls on set with it, but I’ve never picked it up.
RAY: The closest I’ve ever gotten to that book was at a party — A bunch of porn girls were snorting lines off it.
MICAH: [Laughs] Oh shit!
RAY: Yeah… It was wonderfully clich?©. Tho I’m certain they were oblivious to the irony.
MICAH: That’s both sad and hilarious.
RAY: Is there anything else you want to mention?
MICAH: I want to mention my favorite girl in the whole wide world, McKenzee Miles! And that I need to sleep because I’m shooting in the morning.
RAY: With who?
MICAH: I’m not sure… Let me check the board. The “board of doom” — As I like to call it. [Laughs] And the board says… “B.M.” I don’t know what that means.
RAY: That doesn’t sound good.
MICAH: [Laughs] No, it doesn’t. But Frank wrote it for some reason. British monks? I’m sure I’ll just show up, fuck some guy, and go home.
RAY: Thank god I’ve never had to say that.
MICAH: [Laughs] Well, call me if there’s a party or something. Or you just wanna… Y’know… Read some books.
