Aurora Snow Interview

Posted in 1 on June 20, 2009 by SSCrompton

Aurora Snow is one of the biggest names working in the adult industry today. Ms. Snow has starred in three hundred plus films, and directed over a dozen titles as well. Most recently she can be seen in two parody blockbusters from Hustler Video, “This Aint Star Trek XXX” and “Not The Bradys XXX.”
Carnal Comics will debut her comic biography this summer at Comic Con San Diego. Learn what makes this brainy beauty tick and more inside the pages of the first Porn Star Biography Carnal has published since 2005.
Aurora Snow took time out of her incredibly busy schedule to speak to us, and this is what she had to say…AScover2
1. Your comic biography is set to debut later this summer at the San Diego Comic Con, what drew you to this project and are you, or have you ever been, a fan of comic books?

I am fascinated with comics. As a kid I loved to read the sound effects out loud, now as an adult I do that with my nephews. They love the Batman and Spiderman comics, though I am partial to X-men; Rogue and Wolverine are my favorites.

2. In the past few years you’ve preformed mainly in plot driven films, as opposed to gonzo releases, do you have a preference?

I enjoy the work I do whether it is gonzo or plot driven. I enjoy the plot driven movies as there is another dimension of the creative process that goes into making these films. I find it inspiring to play a character or add something more to the scene than just being myself. Of course I adore theater, hence the acting is always a thrill for me.

3.  During your extensive career you took part in two films in the “Extreme Teen” series produced by Extreme Associates. One of the movies in that series, “Extreme Teen 24” was seized in a federal obscenity investigation. Although you did not participate in that particular installment, the films all have a similar nature of indulging the fantasy of having sex with a young, arguably underage girl. What is your stance regarding this sort of content, should the plot scenario of sex with a minor be considered federally obscene and warrant prosecution, or is it just a harmless playful fantasy?

This was not simulated sex with minors. No way was this anything close to such an awful monstrosity. This was simply an exercise in fantasy role playing that most adults get into. Perhaps the porn world makes the dress up and role playing a little more detailed, but it is no more than a role playing game meant for grown-ups playing around.

4. You maintain an incredibly active MySpace presence, blogging several times a week. How important is contact with your fans to you, and how has it boosted your career?

I love my fans. I never knew how much I adored the internet or traveling until I understood it meant I could communicate with fans. I love having friends everywhere. I find blogging on MySpace to be very therapeutic. I enjoy sharing my life with the world, and blogging my personal life is a great way of doing that….I often wonder how having a reality T.V. show would go….as I really enjoy putting myself “out there.” Just a thought J

5.  Regarding the same subject, your blogs often contain personal information that anyone might be nervous to share with the world. This information does indeed help to paint a vivid picture of the real Aurora Snow. Has that at all been a detriment to you, given that a great many adult entertainment fans would rather separate the porn star from the human being? I ask because in a previous interview I conducted with another starlet, she thought her “fans” might treat her a bit differently if they knew her better, if they knew for example that she was a mother.

I believe that in giving my fans access to the real me it will shed some light and break down the barriers people have built up around the stereotyping of “porn girls.” I enjoy letting people in on a little secret–porn may be fun but at the end of the day it’s my job not my lifestyle. I don’t judge people by the jobs they hold and yet I often feel judged by the job I do, bit by bit I intend to break down this wall.

6.  One of your more recent roles was Jan in the porno parody “Not the Bradys XXX”, what is it like to be a part of such an iconic sitcom’s history? Have fans asked you to sign any “Brady Bunch” memorabilia, or quote the famous “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!” line?

Yes, I have many new fans thanks to the Brady spoof. I have enjoyed being a big part of that series and am under the impression that we may be shooting parts three and four later this year.

7.   Besides acting in adult films, you’ve directed several as well. The films you’ve directed have predominately been in the anal genre. A lot of adult actors/actresses who move into directing specialize in a genre they’re known for. But when one hears the name Aurora Snow, they might not automatically associate you with anal sex, since you’ve been in such a diverse collection of scenes. Why did you decide to adopt anal as your directorial specialty?

I believe in creating what is in demand; in short I believe in pleasing my fans. My fans often call out for anal and therefore I feel inclined to honor their requests, as a good hostess would.

8.  In a previous interview you mentioned that after you are finished with adult films, you would like to work in entertainment law. Perhaps it’s just me, but I can’t really imagine Aurora Snow behind a desk. With your blogs and the film, “The Perverted Tales of Aurora Snow,” you have shown a gift for writing and creativity. Has the idea of authoring erotica or any other fiction ever crossed your mind?

Of course! Aside from law school my other life’s ambition is to write a book or two. I am almost certain in years to come I can see that through. For as long as I can remember I have always viewed this life I lead as a path, I am on it collecting the necessary material so that one day when I am old and gray I may finally sit down with pen and paper and share it with the world in many colorful stories.

9. What, if anything does your theater background bring to the porno production table?

It certainly helps me memorize lines quickly! Also it has helped with script reading and taking direction.

10.   In a large number of cases your job demands certain standards of beauty, have you ever felt pressured to get plastic surgery or make any other alterations to enhance your appearance?

Yes I have felt pressured, but I am terrified of surgery. If not for being so afraid of it I may have caved by now. I have a philosophy–if it’s not broken don’t fix it (wait).  I have however become obsessed with the gym…now if only I could perfect my diet….I have a horrid sweet tooth.

11.  A person you have spoken of quite frequently about on your blog has been your brother. It appears that you have a very close relationship with him. Can you speak a little about his current situation?

Yes, my brother is very near and dear to me, all three of them actually. I have three younger brothers and we are all very close. It was hard when I moved away to college but we managed to keep in touch and stay close.  I blog about my brother as it is the only way to let some of what I am holding on to out. He was in a near fatal motorcycle accident February 20th of this year. He was in Critical Care for 4 wks and in a coma most of that time. When he came through the coma without a trace of brain damage we were elated. He’s only 24 yrs old (today June 7th was his birthday which we celebrated at the hospital) and he has three little boys ages one, four and six.  My life is forever changed. I ping pong between my brother and my nephews (he has full custody of his boys and is a great daddy) trying to hold it all together and propel this family forward while managing to work here and there to fund it all. I am disgusted by our health care system and the lack of care hospitals issue.  My brother was an EMT working two jobs and still going to school to become a firefighter and yet his insurance has decided to drop him due to all of this and now he is stuck dealing with the state care which puts him at a distinct disadvantage for proper care. He has a spinal cord injury and was sent to a place that specials in brain injury because that was the closest rehabilitation hospital in the county that the state was willing to pay for. His therapy is a far cry from being what he needs and there is not a thing we can do about it. The hospital has set a discharge date for June 17th, which is both good and bad. Great to have him come home, bad because we have to scramble to somehow get ramps built for his wheelchair, doorways widened and then we have to figure out how to have him continue on with some sort of in home nursing system or therapy however I believe most of that is up to us to take care of. It’s overwhelming and astounding that so little care is given to patients who cannot afford better through no fault of their own.

12. You have stated that you first entered the adult industry under the assumption that you were answering a nude modeling add. Jumping from nude modeling into full on sex scenes seems like a pretty huge leap. What convinced you to go forward when signing up for your first scene?

Honestly? The money–I really did it all for the money in the beginning and then I stayed on as I began to enjoy it.

13. The name Aurora Snow is an amalgamation of two fairytale princesses, Princess Aurora from the Disney adaptation of “Sleeping Beauty” and Snow White who eventually becomes a princess at the end of her harrowing ordeal. What significance do fairytales have in your life?

I don’t believe in fairytales, but I always wished I did. To have such a naively ignorant outlook struck me as a sort of blissful state. Fairytales sugar coat reality so I adore them for their simplistic beauty, though if given the choice I am pleased life isn’t a fairytale as that in the end would be very boring.

14. What is the best and worst thing about being Aurora Snow?

I would answer this differently at various points in my life. At the moment one of the best things about being “Aurora Snow” is the luxury of having the time to be here for my brother (partially thanks to my career and it’s unrestrictive schedule); I am also thankful for the vast amount of life experience I have gained in a relatively short amount of time. The worst thing about being “Aurora Snow” is that I am judged on a character I have acted as on film before being given a chance to disprove the stereotypes that surround this business.

Carnal To Release Limited Edition of Nymph

Posted in 1 on June 14, 2009 by SSCrompton

Carnal Comics has just cbookcover_nymphonfirmed with Frank Thorne (Red Sonja, Ghita of Alizarr) plans to release a limited edition of his first illustrated novel in the Alizarrian trilogy “Nymph.”
“Nymph” chronicles the early adventures of Ghita as a teenage girl, and if you thought the original comic series was hot, you haven’t seen anything yet. The story is told in sweeping erotic pros with all new drawings by the master of rendering sexy women, Frank Thorne.
The limited editions of 100 will come signed and numbered, and also include an audio CD of the book read by the author himself.
This is truly a unique item that any fan of Mr. Thorne’s work should add to their collection, as  well as anyone who loves erotic sword and sorcery.

Aurora Snow, Sinn Sage, Frank Thorne And More

Posted in 1 on June 4, 2009 by SSCrompton

Hey Carnal fans! Sorry the blog hasn’t been updated in awhile, but we here at Carnal Comics have been working on some pretty great stuff.
Aurora Snow has agreed to do an interview with us, in honor of her new Carnal Comics’ biography debuting at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Look for that to be posted here in the upcoming weeks. We cannot say for sure when the interview will be up, as Aurora is extremely busy, especially taking care of her injured brother and his children.

GREAT NEWS!!!! Vampirooni actress Sinn Sage is out of her coma and back home. Sinn recently e-mailed me, and is now back actively checking her MySpace. Please head over there and leave her a sweet comment. Sinn is not out of the woods yet though, there are still a great deal of medical bills which need paying, you can help her and her family out with this by going to savesinn.com and making a donation. Every little bit helps, so don’t feel like you won’t make a difference even if all you can spare is a few bucks.

Your trusty caretaker of this blog and I guess Steve Crompton’s (Publisher of Carnal Comics) assistant recently traveled to New Jersey and had a visit with the legendary erotic comic artist/writer Frank Thorne. You may know Frank from his incredible run on “Red Sonja” in the seventies, or perhaps from his other smash hit barbarian character, Ghita. If you’re not familiar with his work you should be, along with Richard Corben and Wally Wood, Frank is the best artist in adult comics ever to have graced the medium. Carnal is deeply honored and proud to announce that we will be publishing the next two illistrated novels in the Alizarrian trilogy featuring Ghita.
You can pick up the first novel in the series “Nymph” available from Fantagraphics, as well as  the complete Ghita comic book series in one massive volume.

We will also be conducting an interview with Mr. Thorne, but it will not be posted until sometime in July, as he’s swamped right now with Playboy work and Red Sonja commisions. After all there is a big “Red Sonja”  flick coming out later this year, or early 2010, whenever the big Hollywood dudes finish it.
Many people have lost track of Frank Thorne’s work as of recent years, and are surprised when I tell them that he does a gag strip for Playboy almost every other month. Be sure to subscribe so as not to miss a single installment of his sexy and wacky shorts.

Well that’s all for now, but look for an exclusive page from the upcoming Demi the Demoness Movie Comic Special coming out later this year. It’s pretty awesome.
