Alright guys, this is going to be an awesome treat and I am so excited about this because it is two firsts for my humble little blog. Not only is this the first interview with a women BUT the first interview with someone who works behind the scenes in the industry and it is a great one!
So I was first introduced to Erika Icon, adult publicist and owner of The Rub, a few months back when I posted about her interview with Cosmo and I was immediately intrigued. She was beautiful, outspoken, had awesome tattoos and was very porn and sex positive; basically I was looking into getting a divorce so I could ask for her hand in marriage. HAHA.
So imagine my joy when, just last week, not only do I get a notification that Erika left a comment on the write up I did on her interview but also started following me on Twitter! I asked her if she'd like to be interviewed and, to my great joy, she agreed and she did not disappoint.
I think there is still some stigma in the industry that all the women are forced to do porn by evil wife beating dirt bag men and that women are exploited so I was eager to get a feminine perspective on the industry and, since Erika works so closely with women in the industry, I couldn't wait to find out if women are really exploited in this business or forced to do it or any of the other negative connotations that go into the business.
JOE: Let's start with the question everyone always wonders about, how did you get into the industry and what led you to do publicity?
JOE: When should someone get a publicist?

Wow! Great interview huh?
I would like to thank Erika for taking the time out of her busy interview to stop by and visit my little blog, especially since she doesn't do many blogs, and giving both me and my readers an awesome inside perspective into the industry!
