We interviewed Lady Morrigan, 37 year old fetish/femdom content creator from Romania who is currently based in Texas USA. She has been working in the online adult industry for the past 9 years and has graciously agreed to answer some questions about her experience.
Question: “Let’s talk about the early days and learning how to run your business. What were some of your biggest challenges?”
“I started first as a camgirl, and then moved to clip production after a couple of years.
In the beginning I had a hard time finding resources like site reviews, forums, or support groups.
It was a very steep learning curve for me, and I navigated the adult work waves in the dark for a while. I am very glad to see all these resources becoming the new normal nowadays!”
Question: “How has your work in the adult industry changed you as a person or affected your personality?”
“My tolerance for manipulative behavior and bullshit decreased tremendously over the years.
Otherwise, I am pretty much the same person. Maybe a bit wiser 😀”
Question: “Can you identify any ideas you once held about the adult industry, and how your own work has changed or affected these?”
“I think I started to show more compassion and understanding towards people, in general.
Adult work places me in contact with a multitude of personalities, ideas, and fetishes – which has broadened my perspectives and views.”
Question: “How has your work changed or affected your personal relationships with family and friends?”
“I’ve always been open about my work with the most important people in my personal life, and I made sure they understand that this is a job like any other.
I am also lucky to be surrounded by open-minded people who accept me the way I am. I had only very few friends who didn’t see eye to eye with me regarding this matter, and, as a consequence, they are no longer a part of my life. “
Question: “Our society has a lot opinions about sex work. Tell us something about you or your work that would surprise someone who doesn’t know better.”
Lady Morrigan: “It’s incredible how many people think that everyone involved in adult work was forced to choose this path!
This is entirely my choice, and it’s had a positive effect on my life.”
Question: “What do you think is the most important piece of wisdom you could possibly impart on someone just getting started in the industry?”
“Don’t believe everything you see posted on social media; this industry is made of smoke and mirrors.
It’s easy to become jealous of the image projected by others but that image is rarely real. Also, don’t spend all your money on Louboutins and expensive lingerie. Save and invest in your future, because income fluctuates a lot from day to day in this business.”
