Porn as mainstream

If you get to listen to this woman’s perspective regarding the evolution of pornography you would be able to tell that she had a higher education by the way speaks about it in a very eloquent way.

When asked about it, Joanna feels like porn has been very influential in people’s lives, whether it opens their minds or scares them.

Minuses of the industry

Johanna also talks about the minuses of the industry, being bothered by some women’s decision to discriminate against fellow colleagues. There are a lot of girls that want to do anal scenes for more money but aren’t ready. Johanna is the type of person that if she feels her co-star insecurity about the whole thing but still want to do it, she won’t allow it.

“ She learned how to give a good blowjob ”

Unfortunately only few directors will stop the filming if he or she will see that the girl is not comfortable with it. The thing is that there are various scenes and directors from which you can choose to what suits you best.
