Tori Black Interviewby Ray | February 24th, 2009
RAY: Where did you grow up?
TORI: Seattle, Washington
RAY: How did you end-up in L.A.?
TORI: I moved to Florida for a while. That’s where I first started doing adult work. I met Juan Cuba, who filmed my first couple of movies. He suggested that I come to L.A. because I could make mad money. Next thing I know, here I am in L.A., rockin’ porn valley.
RAY: What year were you born?
RAY: Wow… I wasn’t.
TORI: Yup, I’m from back in the day. Is this part of the interview?
RAY: Yes, but I’m having it transcribed. Don’t worry about sounding cool.
TORI: I always sound cool. I’m Tori Black! Back in high school, I was nominated an honorary black woman.
RAY: I went to an all-black junior high. I was usually nominated as the target in war ball.
TORI: [Laughs] That’s so sad!
RAY: It’s true. Why an honorary black woman?
TORI: Because I know my hip-hop, and because I have a fat ass!
RAY: Do you encounter a lot of racism in the porn business?
TORI: Oh my god, yes. There are some people who are fucking racist, bigot pigs.
RAY: When did you arrive in L.A.?
TORI: I showed up on my sister’s birthday – August 28, 2007. My sister lives in Santa Barbara now. She went to Brooke’s Institute for Photography, but now she’s studying abroad at Cambridge.
RAY: Who’s the broad at Cambridge?
TORI: [Laughs] That’s cute! I had somebody say “Cambridge — Isn’t that school for smart people?”
RAY: Do smarts run in the family?
TORI: They do, in fact. So watch your step.
RAY: Why did your sister abandon photography?
TORI: She decided that she needed more intellectual stimulation.
RAY: What are you trying to say?
TORI: I’m saying that she wanted to be a psychologist. But then she got bored with the idea of solving other people’s problems, so now’s she has decided to become an architect. She’s finding herself.
RAY: And what about Tori Black?
TORI: I’m finding myself as well.
RAY: What do you want to be when you grow up?
TORI: Too many things! I want to be a Yoga instructor. I want to be a mom. I want to be a journalist.
RAY: So why porn?
TORI: I’m a very sexual person. This is a way for me to gain some power back. A lot of girls who are coming-of-age experience pressure to be sexual when they’re not ready. I gave into it. I twisted it around in my head so that it filled voids that I had. If a guy wanted me, it filled a void. I let him have whatever he wanted. But now –- I do what I want, I get paid, I’m the one in control. With porn, other people are looking at me and saying “please, I want you,” and I get to say “yes or no”. I get to create desire in them. I get to have control over their passion and lust. It’s a power trip for me. Not a harmful one, mind you. Just a way to express my sexuality in an arena that’s very forgiving and understanding and accepting. At the same time, I can establish myself as a career woman. I am financially successful, and I’m meeting enough people so that once I start my own business, I will have friends and it will be a lot easier. It’s all a hook-up and a handshake. I really love my job and the opportunities it has created for me. I really enjoy it – I have a great time. Both in front of, and behind the camera. As long as it stays respectful and people are nice to be around, I have a good time. I don’t like mean people.
RAY: Anything annoy you about porn?
TORI: Out of all the shoots I’ve done, probably about half the guys cum too early – Whether it’s inside my pussy or in my mouth. Then there was this one time I did a POV blowjob and the guy couldn’t cum at all! He had to fake it. He put his dick in my mouth, grunted a few times, and said “wow, did you swallow all that?” I don’t really understand. It couldn’t have been my fault. Statistics show that I give good head!
RAY: Who was it?
TORI: I’ll tell you off the record, but I don’t want to out him here. It’ll be bad enough if he hears the story around town. Who wants to be known as the guy who couldn’t get off from Tori Black’s head?
RAY: Not me. What do you want to do eventually?
TORI: Journalism. I’m trying to establish a cushion financially so I can lay back on the work for a while. That way, when I start a family, I can be writing articles on the side. I want to do freelance work and sell my articles, that way I can spend most of my time with my family. I would also love to do ambassador work. Travel to other countries and talk to people about their issues, and express our issues to them. What do you think we could do to improve morality in the United States? [Laughs] How is it that a porn star’s hourly wage is far higher than a doctor’s? Or a police officer’s, or just about anybody else who actually does something important with their lives. I also want to open a health center. A place that has yoga, a chiropractor, massage therapy, and a good food center. I’m a vegetarian. I’m almost Vegan, but I do eat dairy sometimes. I have never eaten meat or seafood in my life. Ever. My mom was vegetarian, she held onto my dad’s balls and wouldn’t let him eat meat. The only time he got to eat meat was when we went out to dinner – Which wasn’t often. I come from a dirt poor family. We lived in rural Washington outside of Seattle. Hick-bumblefuck-nowhere is where Tori Black came from. I enjoy being one of the only 20-year-old who knows what she doesn’t know. You know? [Laughs] At the same time, I know what I want to know. And I know how to get there. I don’t know any other 20-year-old’s who give a shit. All they know is “coke! Weed! Parties! No more parents! Weeee!” I’m so over that shit. I think it’s because I left home at 16. I went to rehab when I was 15. Then I dropped out of school.
RAY: What did you go to rehab for?
TORI: It was more of a “troubled teen” center. I drank a lot. I started drinking when I was 12. I was crazy. When I came home from rehab, my mom put me on house arrest. She had just gotten married, so we lived 2 to 3 hours away from all my friends. It wasn’t like I could just sneak out and go see them. She watched her phone bill and she wouldn’t let me online. I was home-schooled, but dropped it. I thought “fuck this.” Why would I sit online and type shitty papers about shit I already know? So I wanted to get emancipated. They ended-up sending me to an all-girls boarding school at 16. I was stuck in the middle of Montana. This school was very big on privacy. The main thing that makes it work is the fact that it’s so secluded. People don’t know it’s name. I was there for 18 months.
RAY: Is that where you had your first girl/girl experience?
TORI: Hell no – That happened when I was 12! I had a twelve-girl orgy. Instead of twelve candles on my cake, I had twelve vaginas on my face! [Laughs] Actually it was the birthday of one of my little girlfriends. There was 12 of us total. I was the youngest. I remember we were watching Titanic. We were in my girlfriend’s living room. One of the girls fell asleep so we decided to wake her up with an ice bath. To our surprise, she liked it. The response was “let’s play strip poker!” And from there it turned-into an orgy fuck-fest. The girl who’s house it was told us there was a big box of dildo’s in her garage.
RAY: Her mom’s stash?
TORI: Exactly. I wasn’t at the vibrator stage yet – Nothing fit in my vagina. But we all pretended and thought we were cool. I’ve always been kind of a freak. I gave head on an airplane recently, but not in the bathroom — In the seats! We were on a flight back from Argentina and we were sitting in the middle section. You know how the middle has three seats? There was some old fat lady next to us. I put my head under the blanket and went down on him. He was really noisy! It wasn’t very discreet.
RAY: Who was it?
TORI: I can’t tell you! My mouth is shut — No pun intended.
RAY: I think I know.
TORI: I know you know – But it’s off the record.
RAY: Tori’s blushing. How does he feel that you’re here with me?
TORI: It’s you. That makes him comfortable. The other day, I did a scene with a guy. It was a blowjob scene, but he fucked my face hard. I had a hole in the back of my throat. The dude annihilated me. I came home crying. That killed him. He said “you have to put him on your ‘no’ list – you will not work with him again.” So he would rather have somebody he knows and is cool with – somebody who’s nice. Don’t stress. He’s been in the business forever so he knows the deal. Most porn guys are sleazeballs. My guy doesn’t even drink. He got me clean.
RAY: Do you like giving head?
TORI: I love giving head. If a guy starts twitching, that is the hottest shit ever! Sometimes — If I know he’s right on the verge of cumming and I’m feeling kind of evil — I’ll stop. [Laughs]
RAY: Give me another good blowjob story.
TORI: One time, I was giving some fantastic head in my personal life. I got so turned-on that I squirted. Which is really strange! Normally to squirt, you have to stimulate a gland using rapid hard pressure. If you finger a girl really hard, or you fuck a girl really hard in the right spot, she is going to squirt. This time, however, I didn’t do any of the above. I squirted all over the place because I love giving head so much. Another time, back when I was in high school — My girlfriend and I had two guys sneak in the window. We were tandem fucking, side-by-side. We had her little sister come in and guard the door for us. Her little sister was only 11 or 12. She laid down in front of the door and put a blanket on her head and listened to us fucking these guys. It was so wrong! [Laughs]
RAY: Did you switch partners?
TORI: No. Nothing like that. But apparently the other guy had a huge penis because she was really sore the next day. I’m actually glad I didn’t switch. In high school, I couldn’t fit anything over five or six inches in my pussy. My mouth is a different story. My mouth has always been big.
RAY: Do you remember the first time you ever gave a blowjob?
TORI: Yes! Oh my god… It was the worst. I was twelve years old. He was thirteen. First of all, he had a chode. Meaning, his cock was fat as shit. Secondly, he was really gross. I didn’t like sucking it. I told him I didn’t want to make him cum, so I wasn’t going to do it very long. So I only did it for a minute! He kept begging “just a little more!” I got so pissed off at him. I also remember the first time I ever got cum in my mouth. It was so bad! I hate to say it, but young guys don’t exactly take care of themselves. A teenage guy’s cum almost always tastes nasty — It’s just fucking gross. Ugh! It’s pure salt. These days when I have a boyfriend, I make sure he eats pineapple and kiwi so his cum is sweet and sugary — And I make sure he drinks lots of water so it’s nice and thin. I remember the first time I played with a guy’s cum. I was very mesmerized. Seeing it up close and personal was a very exploratory experience. I didn’t actually enjoy giving head until I was 15 or so. Around that time, I hooked up with an older guy who was really experienced. He taught me a lot about how to give head and do it right. He had a big penis, too. So I learned how to suck a nice big penis, and I liked it. [Laughs] I was so used to guys being in control. Like I said, giving head is my chance to tell a guy “I’m gonna make you cum, and you’re gonna have no choice in the matter. I’m gonna just ravage you!” Ever since then, I’ve been practicing my head game. I had my tongue pierced for a while, but I decided to take it out. I’ve moved past that. I’m a little more advanced now. I don’t need any industrial tools to improve my blowjobs.
RAY: Explain your tattoo.
TORI: I drew it myself, and it has a very profound meaning to me. Earth, air, fire water, spirit — Those are the five points of the star. The ring symbolizes “woman” — The vaginal canal. So there are five rings, the strength of “woman” interlocked around the strength of the elements. This is my center of being. For a woman, her center of life is her uterus, in-between her hips. It is her weak-spot, so I need my strength here. It’s the life-giving section of the body. This symbolizes my strength in creation and re-birth. When one day, I have a family — I want my core to be strong so that I can be strong for them.
RAY: You couldn’t have just settled for a tramp stamp?
TORI: [Laughs] I would never mark myself with something so blasé. I wanted to have something meaningful. One day when I’m old and wrinkled there might be childbirth scars running through it — But that’s what it’s there for. I’m not one of these stupid, superficial girls who are going to worry about it.
RAY: What’s with girls who ruin their tit with a name-tag?
TORI: It’s either the name of her pimp, her ex-boyfriend, or her son.
RAY: Fascinating. So what makes Tori tick?
TORI: I’m accessable. I’m not a brain-dead robot. I can actually entertain and make good conversation. One day when I publish my memoirs, you’ll learn all about the real me.
RAY: Have you had any creepy experiences in porn?
TORI: Yes. Several. People from my college are posting my real name and my stage name online. They wrote something about having a roommate that turned into a porn star. I don’t need that. I like to keep my personal life and my professional life separate. I don’t dress to get attention when I walk down the street. I don’t want people staring at me, whistling, honking their horn. I’m actually quite shy in my personal life.
RAY: Is your family aware of your porn life?
TORI: Everybody knows. They know me. They know my intellectual capacity. My family has always told me to rely on my brains, not my beauty. Beauty fades. Your brains will be there forever — hopefully. As long as you don’t blast them out with cocaine. My family has been very understanding. They see that porn isn’t a “last minute” decision I have made. They don’t believe that I just gave up and have nothing else going on. They see where I’m coming from. My sister wasn’t very surprised either. [Laughs] She does fine-art nude photography.
RAY: What movies have you done that you’re excited about?
TORI: Blow Me Sandwich 12. That video is amazing. I did a really hot movie called Girlvana 4. I did a scene with Karlie Montana. She’s fantastic. I also love Aubrey Addams and Crissy Moon. We had so much fun! We were all horny. There aren’t very many sets where people actually lick pussy during softcore! I love it when girls don’t have to lick pussy, but they lick pussy anyway! It’s all about having a good time. It was a pussy-licking fest. Apparently I have a really big clit. I ain’t hatin’. I’m the big-clitted bitch, so spot it easy. [Laughs] Some girls like to be hard, and be the one that you have to take forever to make cum. Fuck that! I’d rather cum fifty times than play hard-to-get.
RAY: Do you have a website?
TORI: Eventually. For now, you can find me on MySpace. I just wrote on my leg.
RAY: I’ll get you a baby-wipe.
TORI: Nah. [spits] My saliva is all-powerful. It can do wondrous things.
