When Amber Chase isn’t blowing up Twitter, or starring in some of the best interactive amateur and professional adult content out there, you may find her smoking up and giggling to Get Fuzzy comics. I find her tastes and ideology extremely easy to relate to. Not only does she rock out to blues and angry fucking metal, but she chills out to NPR as well. We had a chance to get to know a little about Amber Chase in the past, but we figured it was time to dive even deeper in this edition of Life Lessons.
I think I’ve been this tall (almost 5’5″) since I was in the 4th grade, which fits. I grew up fast but stayed young at heart.
I played with Barbies a few years longer than I should have – I was sneaking out with boys and still playing make believe too.
I thought I’d become a powerful business woman, or a park ranger, or a tap dancing leotard-wearing stage performer.
I had a profile on Xpeeps and Adult Friend Finder before I was in porn. Me and the person I had been with forever would take naughty pics and share them online with other horny fuckers and soon enough we were making an amateur porn…
Twitter, reading any article or book that isn’t required reading for school, half and half creamer, two hours of doing whatever I want when i first wake up.
Not only am I having super-duper drama in my personal life, but then there is the U.S. economy and the employment outlook in the shitter, and globally there are a lot of scary things going on. Wow, nuclear meltdowns, tsunamis, earthquakes, riots, issues transporting the food we’re lead to believe is in short supply, revolutions…
If I said that (I was optimistic about) those neat new kitty-ear mood-powered headbands, would you believe me? They are pretty cool, and make you look like a kitty cat (http://neurowear.net/) while responding to your brainwaves. Ok, I guess I can’t pin point something specific that makes me feel hopeful for the future, except what I feel inside, beneath the fear or worry–that I know that it’s all gonna be alright.
Reading people’s FormSpring tweets, seeing people ReTweet their horoscopes, a girl in my class (all get on my nerves).
My website is a good example of what sets me apart. On one hand, there’s no membership fees and no monthly billing. On the other hand, there is tons of variety. I share my real life sex life (reality porn) and also provide access to all the streaming videos I have done with other companies. But beyond that I have a three really cool sections. One is the Porn for the blind section which focuses on erotica, spoken word clips that have visuals but that is not the focus of the product, it’s the story. Another area I love but took a break from recently is my belly dance section, I’ll be adding more in the next month or so, but it’s something that I enjoy sharing that you just don’t see very often.
One of the funnest sections is where I enter into the kinky fetish land of the male ego; In the Mindfuckery I take a dominant role and guide you through your secret fantasies. One of my favorite series in that section is where I share my knowledge and experience and give sex advice, or even better when it’s a roleplay sex therapy session. So hot.
I also try to take the time to get to know my fans through direct communication. But really since I entered into the industry I think the range of performers has blossomed, or at least my awareness of the fact that girls like me who aren’t platinum blond with big tits (or fake tits) can share their eroticism on the screen and gain the attention of fans equally.
Nearly all the emails I receive are kind and positive. I have had a handful of haters on Twitter over the last two years but I block an asshat so quick it doesn’t bother me.
Honestly, I think (porn CAN be destructive), on a personal level. Both for those who perform and for those who enjoy watching. BUT that does NOT mean that it HAS TO be destructive, or is always so. Porn can be enjoyable or it can be an obsession. Performing in porn can be exhilarating or it can be exploitative; as can most things, even a vanilla 9-5 job.
We all have sex, or want to have sex, and without it we wouldn’t be here. We are fortunate enough as a species to be able to enjoy sex. We should honor that and not freak out over it’s existence. Sex is part of the human condition. Various depictions of pornography have existed since the dawn of civilization, whether graffiti next to the code of Hammurabi, Eastern temples or a fresco painting in a Greek hall.
