IAmA pornstar, April O'Neil. AMA.

Jul 27th 2012 by heyitsapril • 44 Questions • 906 Points

I heard some people want to ask me some questions. I love answering questions!

Q:

Are you okay with fans approaching you? Also any crazy experiences with fans of yours in public?

A:

I quite like it, actually. I like meeting the people I talk to on Twitter every day. They're usually the ones that don't like approaching me... very few people are willing to go up to a girl and admit they wank it to them.

I've never had any crazy experiences, and I hope it stays that way. Most are genuinely nice or even shy. I try to chat as much as I can given the situation. I did have one guy kind of hang around me & my friends for a little too long after we were done chatting, that was a bit awkward.


Q:

Also, what is your policy on reddit PMs?

A:

I haven't got one...?


Q:

Why did you become a pornstar?

A:

For the pussy. The money didn't hurt, either. And the freedom to choose my own schedule.


Q:

Do you like to cuddle?

A:

I fucking love cuddles.


Q:

When and how did you lose your virginity?

A:

I was 17. I had heard that a lady's first time can be a bit unpleasant what with the pain and blood or whatever. So, one night at a party, I decided that I wanted to get the first time over and done with so that when I found someone I loved and wanted to have sex with it would be a pleasant and romantic experience. I started at the top on my phone's contacts list and called anyone I thought was attractive enough to fuck and asked them to come over and take my virginity. My friend Cornelius was the first to say yes. We did it in his Suburban, it was awkward, didn't hurt at all, and we wrote our names in the steam on the window because we were cheesy like that. D'awww.


Q:

What is your favorite penis size?

A:

I think there's something about the motion of the ocean or rocking a boat or something. That one.


Q:

Hi guys Master Fapper here, AMA, the OP is lying her bush off. I've seen her in a pornpros vid with Bruce somethingrather, and he has a dick the size of a normal persons arm, and the faces, screams, and orgasms, the OP had were like nothing I have ever seen from her and I believe I have fapped to her 12 times.

A:

You keep count?


Q:

What where you like in high school?

A:

I don't know, really. I suppose kind of like I am now. Generally got along with everybody but mostly kept to myself and my small group of friends.


Q:

What was your highschool reunion like? I bet that would have been interesting.

A:

...I'm only 25. Even so, I'm definitely not going to that.


Q:

Any tips for getting max years out of my car tires?

A:

Rotate them regularly and maybe something about keeping a full tank? I don't fuckin know, I don't own a car.


Q:

What scene of yours do you recommend I watch?

A:

My scene with James Deen in Legs Up Hose Down.


Q:

Hi april, I'm a huge fan, love your work. What does the tattoo on your shoulder mean?

A:

It's kanji for "I'm a dumbass who got a tattoo at 15."


Q:

I asked Victoria Rae Black the same question, but here goes.

Most male porn stars you work with are the generic "alpha male" types, muscled, tattooed and "macho". Has working with these type of men on film so often, turned you off from being physically attracted to these type of men?

A:

I was never attracted to that type of guy. The rare exception is my ex, but he was my best friend so it really had nothing to do with his physical stature. I'm attracted to a person as a whole, I don't have a type.


Q:

I know this gets asked a lot (and might have been asked in this thread already) but how does it affect your personal relationships?

I mean, lots of guys say "yeah I'd love to bang a porn star" but when it comes to having an actual relationship, do they get weird on you?

(Never dated a porn star, can't really guess how it would go)

A:

Most guys are cool with dating a pornstar until they fall in love and freak out that they can't take her home to meet their parents. So then they usually try to get her quit. Or switch to g/g. It's dumb.


Q:

Do you ever worry that a male family member might stumble upon one of your vids and not recognize that it's you until they get a clear view of your face right before you take a load to it, thus causing a strange one sided awkwardness between you and said family member which would last the rest of their days?

A:

I don't think about things like that. Not my problem. My brother was the first person in my life that I told I was going to do it. Fair warning is all I can do.


Q:

steve nash finally gets a ring (with the lakers). happy day or sad day?

A:

I DON'T KNOW. TOO MANY CONFLICTING FEELS!


Q:

Were you bisexual before you got into porn? Do you think most porn actresses are legit bi, or is it just for the show?

A:

Yep, I always have been. I wasn't kidding when I said I got into it for the pussy. I wanted more lady action in my life but had a boyfriend at the time so it seemed like a win/win.

I'd say a good majority of the girls are actually bi but there are certainly those who are gay for pay. You can usually tell and then there's really nothing worse than a girl telling you she doesn't like pussy RIGHT before you start filming.


Q:

is your name a teenage mutant ninja turtle reference?

A:

Absolutely!


Q:

Fuck, Marry, Kill, Have as director of your next shoot:

Leonardo

Donatello

Michelangelo

Raphael

A:

Fuck Raph. Marry Don. Kill Leo. Have Mikey direct an orgy of me, April, Casey & Irma.


Q:

Do you get lunch breaks?

A:

That depends on the production company. Some shoots last 3 hours and I'm done. Some shoots I'm there for 12 hours until I even get into makeup. There is more often than not, craft services on a set, but never really any designated "lunch break".


Q:

Do you bleach your butthole?

A:

No, that's just bizarre.


Q:

How do people who knew you as a child react when they learn about your current profession?

A:

There are 3 different kinds: Those that don't care, aren't really surprised, they know me and that it doesn't really define me. Those that think I've been forced into it and want to save me via Jesus' everlasting love or fuckin whatever. And then those that think they have a chance of fucking me now.


Q:

Soooo....do they have a chance?

A:

Not with their general attitude, no.


Q:

You should save up your money with a bunch of other porn stars and create a feature-length 70mm IMAX porn movie in 3D, and hire David S. Goyer to write the screenplay. That would be the most intensely amazing porn video... ever. What do you think about that?

A:

If it's a Doctor Who parody, sure. I really have no interest in producing porn, though.


Q:

House Stark, House Lannister, or House Targaryen?

A:

Oooh! Uhhh. Fuck. I want to say Targaryen but that Arya is such a bad ass! I haven't read the books though, so...


Q:

When did you decide to become a pornstar?

A:

September 2008


Q:

And when did you actually start shooting porn?

A:

September 2187


Q:

Can I be in a sandwich with you and Victoria Rae Black?

Also, what object from your fridge could you throw the farthest?

A:

Peach ring sandwich?

Uhh... red velvet truffles.


Q:

How did you get into the business?

A:

Met a girl at a party, asked her way too many questions, thought about it for a few weeks, then met with her agent and did my first scene very shortly after that.


A:

They killed Skrillex and ate all my pizza.


Q:

What do your parents think of you being a pornstar?

A:

It's not what they wanted me to do but they're happy that I am happy doing something I love and that can support me.


Q:

I noticed you do a few BDSM scenes. Is this a fantasy you've had your whole life, that developed after your career started, or did you only do it for the money?

A:

I wanted to try it to see if I liked it. The tamer stuff is fun, I like being tied up and spanked but nothing too much more than that.


Q:

Hi April! You've mentioned a few times that james deen is your favorite to work with, care to explain why?

A:

He's a great performer, very passionate, very good at what he does. We also get along very well and have a lot in common.


Q:

Could you, would you ever love a bot?

A:

Yep, definitely.


Q:

What do you think of teens (12-16) that watch porn?

A:

I think their parents need to pay more attention. But kids find a way, it's unavoidable. All I can hope for is that they don't think that's how people should really have sex.


Q:

How do guys react when you tell them what you do?

A:

They ask A LOT of questions. And then usually try to immediately fuck me.


Q:

How long have you been playing Magic for?

Do you play casually or go to the occasional FNM?

Did you go to the WotC panel at SDCC?

A:

Just a couple months. Very casually. A friend taught me and then I got the iPad app. I didn't go to any panels at SDCC, it's impossible to without dedicating your whole fucking day to it. I did visit the store they had downtown, though, that was pretty awesome.


Q:

What, if any, is the difference between a pornstar and a porn actress? Is it merely a nomer that anyone performing in the Adult industry can take upon themselves or is there an actual hierarchy that a performer rises up through?

A:

There are some that would debate a difference citing that only girls like Jenna Jameson and Sasha Grey are porn STARS but generally I think it's just quicker than saying pornographic film actress. Like slang.


Q:

whats the average porn penis size?

A:

I dunno, you probably watch more porn than I've been in. What do you think?


Q:

A true whovian is loyal to the Doctor, not an actor.

A:

Oh shit, you beat me to it. Good on ya.


Q:

How many guys have you slept with? Estimate?

A:

Work, I don't count. Personal, 12 guys, 3 girls.


Q:

First let me start off by saying you're one of my favorites. With that said (and I'm sure you've already been asked this 50000 times), why bush? Most girls opt to go bald but you always have your shit kept proper, even going further than the usual "landing strip," which I fucking love [that you go hairier] by the way. But I just have to know why YOU like it. Maybe that way I can start convincing more girls/people in general that bush >>>> bald.

A:

First let me start off by saying THANK YOU. :) With that said... razor burn is not pleasant. My bush is purely practical.


Q:

Is your curling iron burn mark going to be OK?

A:

2nd degree burn, I have to go back to get it checked on tomorrow. I'm just trying to minimize the scarring as much as possible.


Q:

Do you have a religion?

A:

Is it "I am atheist." or "I am an atheist."?
