Interview: The Pornstar Gamer
PSXE: Do other people in your line of work play games, too, or do they think it’s a little weird that you do?
Mia: "There's a bunch that do; I know there are at least a few. For example, Belladonna and her husband play, and then there's the guy who got me into Warcraft and we started "Whorelore." Activision Blizzard actually sued us over the first two names - "Whorecraft" and "Whore of the Warcraft" - but now they really can't do anything. I think they just gave up. So yeah, there are a bunch of us that play."
PSXE: Adult entertainment and games have crossed paths before. For example, Tera Patrick was featured in Saints Row 2; do you think we’ll see more of this? And would you like to be in a video game?
Mia: "Did you see those iPhone Apps? They have pornstar iPhone applications now and I think industries are finally starting to get it: nerds are a huge fu**ing audience, so I'm sure we're going to see more of it. I don't know if this will be good but if it works, more power to them. I just hope they get real gamers in those games rather than just pornstars.And actually, they're going to be making an NPC of me in [game name withheld for our reasons]. And I want to do stuff like PR or spokeswoman or something. I went to BlizzCon this year and it was fu**ing unreal and there were spokespeople there and I was like, 'I could get paid for this.'"
PSXE: All these fashion magazines always list someone’s "turn-ons" and "turn-offs." Would you say a guy who plays games is a turn-on for you?
Mia: "You know what, I don't know, really. Sometimes it's bad because I know how I am with games. I know how much time I spend so maybe I wouldn't want to date me. But still, talent is hot; any kind of talent is hot. And I'm not really into the whole musician thing, but if you're really good at something, that's really hot...so if you're good at video games...
But if you suck, I'm going to make fun of you. 'laughs'"
PSXE: Do you see yourself still playing games well into the future as you get older?
Mia: "I sure hope I will; games are only getting better so [my love for games] better not fu**ing go away. No, I'm not giving this up any time soon. It's really fun to play games; it's sh** you can't do in real life. I like being involved...something like GTA wasn't really my thing; I just found it a little pointless, but I certainly appreciated it for the brilliant game it was."
And by the way, Mia would like to give a shout-out to a couple WoW buddies: the Death Knight, "Pmo," and the Druid, "Noble."
We thank Mia for taking time to prove to everyone that this industry attracts all types. And some additional end notes- Mia is mostly retired now (you'll have to get your porn fix elsewhere in the future) and currently trains seeing-eye dogs. She also loves cars and on that subject, the mere fact that she had a 350Z is only the start of the irony; as most of you know, Arnold has his 350Z and I also owned for a while, so we had a laugh about that. Furthermore, anyone who can talk about the Aions in Final Fantasy X and look like that at the same time...? It's more than just refreshing; it's freakin' awesome.
And lastly, I did this interview because I knew we had a mature and intelligent community, so don't make a fool out of me by filling the Comments section with junk. You guys never do that, so don't start now; if you choose this opportunity to abuse the interviewee, I'm gonna come down on you hard. She seemed very nice, so leave her the hell alone; if you want to go on a moralistic rant, feel free in the forums, provided there's no personal bashing going on. I'll be keeping a close eye... Thanks.
