    Celebrations Are Called For

    Earlier this year, I spent a week working almost non-stop. I messed up my sleep cycles and generally put too much pressure on myself. Well, it turns out that it was all worthwhile in the end. I've been nominated at the Feminist Porn Awards, for my film The Agency, and I’m so ridiculously excited by this, for so many reasons.

    Firstly, this is the first film I’ve ever submitted to a festival, and I really had absolutely no idea what the judges were looking for! When you know what does well at a festival, it’s easy to tailor your film to that. Without that knowledge, I simply had to edit the film in the way I felt was best, and hoped that the judges would like it as well.

    Headshaving - During

    I've already written about the whys and the preparation for my headshaving scene here

    The day of the shoot arrived, and I have to admit to being a bit of a mess. I got up early to wash my long hair for the last time, and then did the last bits of packing I needed to do. Once I was packed and sorted, though, my nervous energy had nowhere to go, and I think I spent a little while wondering around the house, looking for things to do. I didn't manage much of this though, before R and Pandora told me to sit down, and eat and drink. They very much helped with this by pressing a bowl of cereal and mug of tea into my hands!

    Not long after that, The Boss arrived, and we all set off to the studio. We had the studio for the whole day for a couple of reasons - one being that I wanted to get some final photosets of my long hair before it was shaved off, and some more photos post shave, and two, we didn't know how long the headshaving was going to take, and what state I was going to be in afterwards, and I didn't want to have to rush. As it turned out, planning on shooting some photos in the morning was probably the best thing I could have done. It allowed me to do what I know, and focus on something other than what was coming up.

    Headshaving - Before

    When I first started performing in porn, I had two big fantasies, two big things that I knew I would do at some point before I stopped being in front of the camera. Those two things were breast suspension, and headshaving. The first happened some years back now, one of those moments where everything came together and it was just The Right Time (as far as I can remember, I wasn't actually even booked to perform that day, but a last minute model cancellation left me to step in).

    The second was more difficult to do. It would leave a visible sign afterwards, for quite some time. Something that wouldn't be easy to hide, and would potentially raise a lot of questions. I knew that I wouldn't be able to do it until I was sure that I would be able to face those questions, to face the looks of strangers, the judgement from people I knew.

    In the beginning, the fantasy was just that, a fantasy. Something I would think about, something that would happen "sometime", but it was in a far off future that I didn't need to plan for just yet. But over the past couple of years, I began to think about it more seriously. Telling a few people here and there that it was something I was planning on doing. Discussing some possible scenarios, and putting very vague time frames on the idea. "I want to do it in the spring, so that it'll grow back in a bit before winter."
