E28 Vex Ashley: Porn Actress and Producer



CBGgxaxWgAAge_l

In episode 28 I was joined by cam-girl and porn actress Vex Ashley. I came across Vex when I read an article about her and her work in Esquire magazine. In the article Vex spoke so intelligently and frankly about her career and her place within the porn/sexwork industry that I knew I had to have her on the show.

Vex doesn’t look how the way mainstream porn stars look and she doesn’t make mainstream porn. Vex was charming, insightful, thoughtful, and funny and if you have any negative preconceptions about people who work in this industry prepare to have them destroyed.

During my conversation with Vex we discussed:

  • Vex’s art school background and the influence this has on the pornography she makes.
  • How Vex first got involved as a cam girl and her surprise at the people she encountered during this work.
  • Vex’s decision to make the distinctive style of porn that she makes.
  • Vex’s site, Four Chambers, is crowdfunded via Patreon and we spoke about how this works.
  • Whether or not on-screen sex is enjoyable.

We covered loads more topics during the podcast but that’s a flavour. Thanks for listening, Dave.
