‘Dana Vespoli’s Real Sex Diary 2’ in Stores Now
VENICE, CA – Dana Vespoli is always a terrific interview, but in her latest it’s her friend Sovereign Syre who is doing the questioning and with the two knowing each other so well – the latter certainly knows which questions to ask to bring out the Dana’s brand of thoughtful provocativeness – it’s a special kind of fascinating.
“She graduated with a degree in comparative literature and got work in the corporate world, but found it degrading and, well boring,” Sovereign writes in introduction, striking a chord that is familiar to anyone familiar with the work and ways of Sovereign and/or Dana. Yes, a porn star found the corporate world degrading.
“Although Dana’s beauty is what I would define as delicate, her demeanor is salty, intense, cerebral and funny. This contradiction is compelling and a big part of her charm.”
Who could possible read that and not want to continue? (A: The kind of person you wouldn’t want to spend any time with.)
It’s a fairly long interview, but when it’s done one feels it could have gone longer. There is trust and playfulness and, even in a world that doesn’t always reward such things, they aren’t afraid to speak intellectually. They discuss the state of porn today, though not in the usual way, and how Dana’s vision(s) fit in with that. She is not a by-the-numbers pornographer, and she can sometimes frustrate the average porn fan with too much realism or getting artsy rather than just blasting through to the sex without any emotion.
“I come at it with respect for what it is, I come at it trying to have a meaningful experience with another person, or documenting a meaningful experience, or creating a situation where people can come together when we get down to the actual sex,” Dana says. “I know it sounds a little mystical or whatever, but I think when you lack respect for this thing, I think you lose it and it goes away, and that’s what I think happened with these companies. At a certain point no one wants to see a girl get made fun of. At a certain point people are watching this more for amusement than to be turned on.”
