Skin Diamond Interview

Captain Jack interviews Skin Diamond

Skin is one of the biggest stars in the adult industry and for a very good reason. She is a beautiful woman and an outstanding performer. As proof, she is a 2-time nominee for AVN Female Performer of the Year. Skin is a very busy woman and I was lucky enough to get her during one of her free moments. Skin is fun to talk to and laughed a lot during the interview. I hope her personality shines through this screen!

Captain Jack: Tell me about Skin Diamond. I heard you grew up in Scotland! How was that growing up?

Skin Diamond: It was pretty cool. It was unusual for me, an American kid growing up in Scotland. I moved there when I was about 3 or 4 but I distinctly remember not liking it at first because it was very cold. (laughs) And I didn’t like the food that much when I lived there. I love it now! It was very different. I was raised by missionary parents, raised quite poor. We just got money from the church for living expenses. It was very different because I was the only black girl in my school. (laughs)

CJ: How long were you over there for?

Skin: 20 years.

CJ: Why no accent?

Skin: If you know the accent, then you can definitely pick up on things because I pronounce certain words differently. Because my parents were American, I was always brought up around American accents so it was very easy for me to switch between the two.

CJ: How old are you now?

Skin: I’m 27.

CJ: You are a stunning woman, I imagine you were that way in high school too. When did you lose your virginity?

Skin: I was about 17.

CJ: Were you very promiscuous after that?

Skin: I was promiscuous before I had sex. I remember I wanted to have sex from a young age. I was always really fascinated by the idea of sex. I would sneak downstairs when I was little and scan through the channels hoping I could catch a glimpse of something. I wanted to have sex for a long time and I think I was getting frustrated because I hadn’t had sex yet. I’ve always been really shy so I wasn’t this sort of girl who would just go out and do it. The few opportunities that I had before I actually lost it, I always chickened out because I didn’t think I’d be very good at it. (laughs)

CJ: Now look at you!

Skin: Yeah, for sure! (laughs)

CJ: I know you’re bisexual, when was the first time you were with a girl?

Skin: Probably around the same time. Like my first boyfriends, I remember I would always invite my girlfriends to come play with us. My two best friends both had threesomes with the boys I was dating at the time. And we would get some lingerie from Victoria’s Secret or whatever and dress up and go over to his house and try to be kinky and all that fun stuff.

CJ: Why doesn’t that sort of stuff ever happen to me?

Skin: (laughs) I would always date older guys too. In high school, I dated a few years older than me. I left school and went to college when I was 15, so after that, I would only date college guys or guys in their early 20s.

CJ: What’s the oldest guy you’ve ever been with in your personal life?

Skin: In their 50s, I think. I don’t know, I never ask their age (laughs) or they don’t want to tell me because they think I’ll be embarrassed or judgmental about their age or something. Age is just a number and I’ve always found myself drawn to men much older than myself anyways because I find the ones around my age to be a little more immature for me. (laughs)

CJ: How many tattoos do you have?

Skin: Um, I don’t know. A bunch.

CJ: Do you have any favorites?

Skin: Probably the Phoenix on my back.

CJ: I heard that the lock on your lower leg is to denote a past master. Tell me about that.

Skin: Yes, that was the first real Master that I had. He was a dom for Kink and that was when I was doing The Upper Floor. So I was basically his slave on the upper floor and then it bled into our personal lives a bit as well. I actually got the tattoo live on The Upper Floor somewhere in the archives.

Skin Diamond

CJ: You said that was the first Master you had. How many have you had and do you still have one?

Skin: I kind of outgrew having a Master for the time being. My last Daddy, we used to switch on each other so it wasn’t the same as having a Master. He was my submissive and I was his submissive, we would switch on each other. I’ve had one Mistress, a Master and a Daddy.

CJ: What’s the difference between a Master and a Daddy?

Skin: I used to call my Master ‘Daddy’. But a Master in my eyes is someone who is completely dominant and has very strict rules for protocols and how the relationship is. Whereas, when I was with my Daddy, he was more like a play partner who would dominate me and I would dominate him as well. So it’s a little different.

CJ: I heard another interesting thing about you, that you just got your driver’s license about 18 months ago?

Skin: It was about 2 years ago. I didn’t drive until I moved to America because I never needed to. The UK has excellent public transportation and I spent all my money, instead of on a car, traveling throughout Europe.

CJ: How and why did you decide to get into the adult industry?

Skin: I got in kind of by accident. I never saw myself as being a porn star even though I was always drawn to porn. I always thought it was great and everything but it wasn’t for me. So I was doing a lot of nude modeling at the time and softcore stuff. Nothing too hardcore, like I didn’t show pink and I didn’t do any explicit scenes with girls. However, I did some teasing scenes with other girls and it got more and more naughty and then I was offered by Burning Angel to shoot my first girl/girl scene in Paris. This was when I was still in Scotland and I thought, ‘What the hell? I want to go to Paris! I’ll lick some pussy to go to Paris!’ (laughs) So I agreed and I ended up shooting two girl/girl scenes. By the end of the trip, Joanna asked if I would be willing to stay longer and would I be willing to shoot some boy/girl scenes. At this point, I was having such a great time. It wasn’t like I expected porn to be, it was just a bunch of people hanging out and having sex and making money at the same time. Which was awesome. So I figured what the hell, so I shot my first boy/girl scene and my first anal scene that week. I never thought I’d do it again, honestly, I thought it was a one-time thing. (laughs) I was just doing it for fun. And when I moved to LA, Joanna asked if I wanted to shoot more. And I did. And then she invited me to AVN for the first time and I met everyone else in the industry. And I had so much fun and it all looked so glitz and glam and I just had to try. I wanted to be one of the top girls. I was sitting across from the Elegant Angel booth and I said, ‘I want to sit at that booth one day!’

CJ: Was there any nervousness when you started filming? I mean all these people are there watching you fuck. What was your first scene like?

Skin: I was definitely very nervous. Having sex on-camera is so much different that real life. So it was one of those where I tried to be aware of the camera, ‘Oh yeah, I need to show them this!’ My first boy/girl scene was with James Deen and we had already banged the previous night off-camera. That’s why I agreed to it. I figured we already had sex so we might as well have sex again and get paid for it. (laughs) I had a threesome with James and Joanna and she said, ‘You have to stay and keep shooting. You’re so awesome!’ (laughs)

CJ: In your 4 years, do you have any favorite scenes?

Skin: I actually shot an amazing scene recently with Tommy Pistol for Fucked and Bound. It was so insane. I came so hard, I started sobbing. Not in a bad way! I don’t know what Tommy’s dick did to me but I squirted everywhere and I was in bondage and I came so hard that I just started bawling. It was so amazing! The other one was JP was the Master and I came and I started sobbing again. I guess I hadn’t had a really good bondage session in a long time! It was great!

CJ: It’s hard to believe your showcase movie came out two years ago already! You were outstanding in Skin by Elegant Angel!

Skin: Thank you.

CJ: You are outstanding, but I think you work really well in Chris Streams movies. One of my favorites was Oil Overload 11 with Erik Everhard and Mick Blue.

Skin: Thank you. Actually, I just submitted that for nominations because that scene was so amazing. I hadn’t been DP’d in awhile and I was really horny that day. (laughs) And oil makes DP’s so much easier because there’s so much lube. (laughs) It wasn’t even supposed to be a DP that day and I just said, ‘Do it!’ It just slid right in.

CJ: What’s your favorite position?

Skin: I think probably right now, I like doggie. But I also really love missionary with my legs all the way back because that really hits my g-spot.

CJ: What do you like sexually? What gets Skin off?

Skin: I really like breath play and I really like power exchange. I like a guy who can dominate me and can also let me take control. I think that’s a really big turn-on when you’re fighting for the power.

CJ: I think I’ve seen you more often lately in anal scenes as opposed to vaginal scenes. Do you prefer anal?

Skin: I like both at the same time. Honestly, if I had to do a preference, I like getting DP’d. (laughs) What’s not to like? It’s the best of both worlds at the same time. And I guess it shows because I just won Best DP scene.

CJ: You are one of the biggest adult stars out there, do you get recognized a lot in public?

Skin: It’s so funny but I do get recognized quite regularly but I think most people here are afraid to approach me because it’s Los Angeles and they’re just used to it. However, I was just in Guyana and I had no idea that I had such a huge fan base down there. It’s so crazy! I was getting stopped in the street everywhere I went and I couldn’t go anywhere without a chaperone because people would know who I was. It was really crazy. (laughs) I said, ‘Wow, I need to get to South America more often!’ (laughs)

CJ: How often do you masturbate?

Skin: It really depends. Sometimes I like to not masturbate and let myself get really, really horny so that the next time I have sex, it’s really really crazy mind blowing.

CJ: When a guy pops, where do you prefer it?

Skin: I honestly prefer getting cummed inside of but I don’t do it on camera. But in my personal life, my favorite is to feel a cock spitting it’s cum out inside of me. It always makes me cum one last time when I feel it happening. (laughs)

CJ: What’s the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done off-camera?

Skin: The kinkiest thing? I don’t even know which one was the kinkiest! Needle play was definitely a kinky one. Pee play. That’s how you can tell if I really like someone; if I let them pee in me or on me. (laughs) Then you know it’s real. I think probably the most extreme thing that I ever let anyone do was set me on fire but that didn’t turn out so well. (laughs) We were all fucked up at the time. It was an embarrassing thing. (laughs) That’s why I got my Phoenix tattoo because it covers up this huge porn scar. If you look at my earlier scenes when I first got with Spiegler, you can see the scar, it was pretty gnarly. Or maybe it was the time I put my whole arm in a guy’s ass. Or maybe it was the time I got strap-on fucked by a girl in a pig mask. I don’t know. I have a weird sex life. (laughs) It’s weirder off camera than it is on camera because some things are illegal to do on-camera. (laughs)

CJ: At the Sex Awards last year, you said you learned so much about yourself sexually doing porn. What exactly?

Skin: I think I’ve gotten a lot of my confidence from porn. Before porn, I modeled on the internet nude and I used to think I was fat. I didn’t think I was sexy or anything. It wasn’t until I started doing it for a living and started getting feedback from people that I started to believe ‘Oh, ok, I’m not that bad.’ I think through the years of porn and crazy sex, it’s definitely made me realize how strong of a person I am and I don’t take shit from people like I used to. I used to be way shy and timid. I’m still pretty shy but I’m more able to speak up for myself now. I know where I stand in the grand scheme of things a little bit more I think.

CJ: What are you like off-camera? What are your hobbies and interests?

Skin: I love animals; I have 2 cats, 2 rats and a bearded dragon. I love reading. I love watching Dr. Who and anything related to Dr. Who in any way, shape or form. I’m a huge nerd so I like collecting Dr. Who shirts. I actually came out with a Nerd movie because I wanted to do something for myself so I produced this movie through my website. I also love to cook and I like doing things for my friends. I also really like writing music. I’ve been doing a lot more of in the past year. I did a music video for Brazzers. When they approached me, I wanted to write the music myself. I told them ‘I want to do a music video style theme but I don’t want it be some really cheesy some weird song that I hate.’ They let me write the song and do the video for it. I had so much fun with it that I decided to keep on going. So I took vocal lessons and have been practicing writing. I’m going to be releasing some new material soon, probably in the next couple of months.

CJ: What kind of music do you like?

Skin: That’s such a loaded question. I love all genres of music. I love jazz, rock music, hip hop, pop, oldies, new music, dance music, everything.

CJ: What does the future hold for Skin Diamond? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Skin: In 5 years, I always feel that I’m going to be involved in the adult industry or the entertainment industry in some way, shape or form. I don’t know exactly how things are going to go because I’ve always been an artist type and it’s hard for me to plan ahead because I’m so sporadic with my decisions. One minute I could really be into something and then a week later, I don’t even care anymore. (laughs) I just know that I’m always going to be in the business of entertainment.

CJ: What can the fans look forward to out of you? Any new projects?

Skin: I have two new movies coming out, Dollhouse and Nerdgasm. I’m am very proud of them. Also Devil Dom which is also coming out from Deviant Entertainment. I do a sex scene with Brandy Aniston and Maddy O’Reilly and it was probably the craziest girl/girl scenes I’ve ever shot. We really went off on each other. Dollhouse is also from Deviant and is my directorial debut. I shot a bunch of scenes and then performed in one. Nerdgasm is being distributed by Girlfriend Films. It’s a compilation type movie where I play characters from all my different worlds. I do a scene where I’m the doctor from Dr. Who and I turn in a woman for some reason. And I do a sex scene with a girl. I also play a girl who’s obsessed with Harry Potter and I did a Jedi scene with Penny Pax where I’m a Jedi master and she’s my student and I’m trying to teach her to use the Force to get me off but it doesn’t work so we do it the old fashioned way. So my Nerdgasm movie is more quirky and fun and silly whereas Dollhouse is more on the horror movie side.

CJ: And how can the fans get ahold of you?

Skin: On Twitter, I’m @Skin_Diamond. Thank God it just got reinstated! I was going out of my mind! I was ‘So many years of work out the window!’ I also have a Facebook fan page. and I’m on Instagram @SkinDiamond. And I also have a website which is where all the scenes from my Nerdgasm movie will be getting released this month.
