This is a pretty good interview.. I’ll run in part; please click thru and read the whole thing —
For our next exciting series of Chatterboxx, Wally and I were able to catch up with the lovely boricua Mercedes Carrera. As we enter the world of Mercedes, she shares her thoughts on the feminist movement, her dedicated support for the troops, mandatory condom use in sex scenes, views on free speech and more.
Sincere: Hello Mercedes, how are you doing? Can you tell the fans where you’re from and how old are you?
Mercedes: Hello, I’m 32 years old and I was born and raised in Southern California. Although, I’ve moved around a bit and ended up back in Los Angeles.
Sincere: I have read somewhere that you have an IQ over 140 and you was a aerospace engineer as well. What was your major in college and would you mind sharing with our audience your technical background?
Mercedes: Well, my IQ has been measured as approximately 160 actually, but this was awhile back and I am going to bet I’ve killed quite a few brain cells since then. 🙂 As we know, having a high IQ doesn’t mean one always makes the smartest life decisions so I don’t put too much stock in it, although I do have a great ability for technical problems and mathematics. I went to college for engineering, worked in aerospace and later business electronics, and then AV engineering work for the mainstream tv/film industry. From there I kind of fell into a performance role since I knew so many people in the mainstream and later adult industries.
Sincere: What made you decide to enter the world of adult entertainment?
Mercedes: It wasn’t my intention actually. I was doing production work and had a model profile up to actually scout for other models for a project I was working on. I was doing some modeling on the side to pick up extra cash and started getting offers to do porn. At first I thought it was ridiculous, but when I saw the pay rate I figured, why not? Would be fun. And worst case I’d do a scene and if I hated it no big deal. There’s so much content on the internet, unless you’re trying to be a star it’s unlikely you will be. I did a few scenes, found out I love performing and the rest is history.
Sincere: Does your family know what you do for a living and are they supportive of your decision?
Mercedes: The people who matter to me know what I do and are supportive of all of my life decisions.
