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.
