Posted by Guardian Australia on Saturday, October 05, 2018 05:06:11For more than 15 years, Christina Love was a porn star, working on television, in films and commercials, and as an actress.
But as she moved from one studio to the next, she discovered that her body was changing.
“I’d get a massage, and I’d look up and I just realised, ‘I’m changing my body,'” she told the ABC’s 7.30 program.
“You’re not a young, sexy, skinny blonde with a big ass.
It’s just different.”
Love started to take to wearing clothes that were more revealing.
“It was a bit of a reaction to the way I felt in my underwear and the way the clothes were, so it was just something that I felt like I needed to do,” she said.
Love’s journey from amateur porn star to sex goddess has taken her from the streets of Sydney to Hollywood.
The 27-year-old was born in Sydney, and moved to Australia in 1996.
The Australian film industry has had a tough time in recent years, with fewer women working on screen and fewer young women working.
Love had no idea how to make money in porn until she began working in hotels and motels, but soon found herself in the hot tubs and sex parties.
“The only way I could make a living is to get a job as a prostitute and I couldn’t even do that,” she told 7.15.
“My boyfriend was also doing it and he said, ‘you’re going to have to find a job.'”
I’m a bit obsessed with being sexy and it was like, ‘yeah, I’ll get it’.
“I think it’s the best thing for you to do.”
Love said she began making videos for her friends and fellow porn stars.
“Some of the girls had been working as strippers or escort girls before, so they were just a bit younger and they just didn’t know how to take care of themselves,” she explained.
“But the girls were all so nice, and so eager to make a good porn film.”
And they all wanted to do it for me.
“Love has made her own name in the industry, making several films including “Sexy Girls”, which was nominated for the 2017 Golden Globe award for Best Picture.
She said her first career as a porn actress was in 2002.”
When I first started, it was very much just for my boyfriend, because he was really into it and I was very into it, and he didn’t really mind, so we got on pretty well,” she laughed.”
We were a couple of girls, so I would work as much as I could, and then when he found out that I was doing it, he said ‘I’ll take you on’.
“She says she did a few films with her boyfriend, before settling on working as a stripper and a porn model.”
In 2004, I had my first shoot with him, and that was when he was actually getting his career started,” she recalled.”
So that’s when I realised that I could do this and he would love it.
“She says her first porn film, “Sexiest Girl in the World”, is one of her all-time favourites.”
He was a really good photographer, and the shots he took of me were just so beautiful,” she remembered.”
A lot of people are still in shock to this day.
“Love now works in various jobs, including a waitress, but said she would never turn down a film shoot.”
If someone asks me to work as a waitress I’m not going to say no,” she added.”
For me, being a porn performer is my first career.
“Every single one of my movies is about someone who has really struggled with their sexuality and their relationship with their body.”
Love says she is now more involved in her sex life than ever before.
“Because of what I’ve been doing in the porn industry, I have more friends than I have ever had before,” she shared.
“They are more into my work, they’re more into the sex scenes, they are more aware of what my body is like and they’re also more into me.”
That’s what I think makes me so sexy, it’s not just the way that I look, it is that I love it so much.
