December 30, 2015 interview with Alicia Snow by Adult DVD Talk reviewer PornOCD
PornOCD: How was growing up for you?
Alicia: Well, I think for all trans women growing up can be hard. I was fortunate enough to have other things to keep my mind occupied to some extent. Namely the performing arts. I was, and am, extremely privileged to have the family I was born into. That being said my Mum was a single parent with 3 kids. We lived on the streets, under an old bed sheet, for a period because my father left my mum with a house in arrears 2 weeks before I was born. So a bit of a bumpy start to life but with my amazing family we survived.
PornOCD: When did you first feel you wanted to live as TS?
Alicia: Well, I knew I was a girl at 5. Sadly, I also knew it was a taboo subject from that early age and I exhausted every tactic to keep it hidden. I didn’t discover the term “transgender” until I was about 17. Unfortunately for me I found it through “sissy culture” which muddied the water even more for me and made me feel even more like an outcast. Then at around 18-19, I began to find a lot of information about trans people and from then, I knew who and what I was and what I needed to do. I was a girl and I needed to transition.
PornOCD: How difficult decision was it telling friends and family?
Alicia: Easiest decision in the world. Like I said, I’m extremely privileged to have the family I do. I have a gay older brother, and an extremely liberal and forward thinking family. Plus my friends are all quirky folks in theatre. Thespians are all extremely accepting! I’ve always been a stubborn cow, rushing headlong into things. I couldn’t live my life in the agony of being something I’m not anymore so it was “come out or die”… and I sure as hell wasn’t going to let a bit of social stigma stop me from being me.
PornOCD: Do you think that the TS community in the UK are accepted more than years gone by?
Alicia: Oh God yeah. I mean it’s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. You probably can’t even describe it as “good” yet. But it’s improving slowly but surely. It’s all about education. Humans are creatures of habit; they’ll always stick to what they know. It’s out of laziness and the thought of having differing opinions to your peers that terrifies people. It stops them from making their own minds up. It’s down to this same hive-mind-mentality, the one responsible for historical atrocities like the crusades, that children use to segregate their classmates and for adults to emulate this on trans issues… It’s immature.
But hey, Even 10-15 years ago when I was a kid, there was a transwoman in my town, and she would get crucified just walking down the street by crowds of grown-ass adults; resorting to name calling and physical abuse. Now it’s different. Bystanders don’t idly let that happen anymore. That’s a comforting thought.
PornOCD: How have you dealt with rude and narrow minded people growing up?
Alicia: Fortunately because of my other endeavours in life, it’s very easy for me to hold myself in a better light than anyone who wants to give me shit, especially when I look at their reason for wanting to give me shit. “You’re a tranny, fuck you,” or “I was also a world class ballet dancer by the time I was 16. What have you done with your life? Your greatest achievement is eating an entire box of Poptarts from your mum’s kitchen.” It probably comes off as arrogant, but I worked my ass off to be an educated and accomplished member of my industry, and I’m really proud of what I did and the person I became because of it. Someone who has to attack in that way, must be really hurting. All that anger and frustration has to come from somewhere. When people have no accomplishments they don’t feel powerful or worth anything, so they try and bring others down out of jealousy. I pity them. I appreciate how lucky I’ve been to have the opportunities I’ve had, and just ignore it.
PornOCD: When did you first view pornography?
Alicia: At around age 11. Thanks Internet! First genres I saw were like blowbangs and bukakke. Hentai stuff too and a LOT of Hardcore BDSM. I was obsessed with helplessness and humiliation from a young age and it’s fitting that the first porn I found was centred around that!
PornOCD: So how did ballet become part of your life?
Alicia: Dance is in my blood (wankiest thing to say ever). But my family has always had ties to theatre. I started dancing at 2 years old in a little dance school that was local to me. My older sister was taking classes there. I would watch and I really wanted to try… mainly out of boredom if I’m honest. After awhile, it became clear to the people, who would watch or teach me, that I had charisma on stage and could manipulate an audience, especially with humour and emotional connections. So before I went to secondary school, some industry names scouted me and urged me to audition for professional training… the rest is history. Ballet was my passion, It still is, and with some really hard work and with a fuck-tonne of luck, I made it to be a professional. Shortly after – a principal dancer with many major companies across the world.
PornOCD: When did the very first opportunity arise to get involved in adult industry?
Alicia: Well, I’d left the ballet world due to transition and was looking for something fun to do. I’d always been fond of getting naked online. I had a presence on Fetlife for many years, as well as some other similar sites. There were a few ads online for a new TS porn site, so I put my name down, thinking my tiny boyish figure would get me rejected immediately. I’d also been spotted out and about in London by some people in the adult industry. I was actually managing a shitty drag bar, a proper dive, in Soho when I got approached by some industry professionals, who encouraged me to go for it.
PornOCD: How did your first porn scene come about?
Alicia: Well, I got the green light to model for Grooby Productions straight away (to my great surprise) on the back of my application. At the time, I didn’t know they were launching a UK-specific site eventually named UK TGirls. And it was for 2 solo scenes. It was all really professional… and makes for a boring answer I’m sorry to say!
PornOCD: Describe how you felt on day of your very first shoot.
Alicia: I was bricking it. You think pornstar, especially TS pornstars, your mind goes to the real superstars like Bailey Jay, Sarina Valentina, Tiffany Starr; incredible curves, flawless and downright gorgeous women. And then there was me. The British bumpkin from the New Forest, never even smelled an estrogen tablet in her life. Safe to say I had no idea how I was going to make it look good and try not to make a right tit of myself.
PornOCD: For those reading about you for very first time describe yourself in three words.
Alicia: Kinky. Cute. Venomous when threatened.
PornOCD: You seem very much into BDSM. When did this set your brain and pleasure signals going?
Alicia: It’s been a part of me since before I can remember! Being tied up and humiliated has always given me a lady boner. For example, when I was young, I was briefly in care. There was a girl in the home who would tie me up, blindfold me and force-feed me food that she had already chewed and licked. Sounds disgusting to some I guess, but feeling so powerless and submissive was doing it for me even then! It’s stayed with me my whole life. To this day I’d describe my sexual interests to include Objectification, Humiliation, Dehumanization, Bondage and Sensory Deprivation.
PornOCD: How much fun is it working for UK TGirls?
Alicia: It’s great. I love working for a UK specific site. It’s nice to represent our little island and show that we have sex appeal too. We’re a really new site. There hasn’t been one like it before over here, so we’ve got “nothing to prove but everything to share” as an old teacher of mine once said. It’s exciting to see how we’ll grow with time. Right now we’re the new kid on the block, but that’s exciting.
PornOC: Your scene with Alexandra Vexx looks smoking hot. Tell us about the scene.
Alicia: Oh thanks, I’m glad you like it! It was a really hot scene to shoot. Alex is as kooky as she is tall (and she is tall!) but that’s why I love her. Super easy going, a good laugh and she really knows how to make a submissive girl squeal!! It was her idea to play with the “innocent petite girl meets dominatrix amazon” concept, and I think it worked really well on camera. We’re both kinky people hence the dildo-head-harness (always a favourite of mine). It actually ended up being a little “switchier” than we originally planned, but I think that just made it all the more exciting!
PornOCD: So how much do you use sex toys and other pleasure tools? lol
Alicia: All the time! Daily! I have a vast collection of bondage restraints and various toys and dildos, some sensory deprivation toys like spiky pinwheels and more gags than I can count!
PornOCD: How much porn do you watch?
Alicia: Loads. I have a really eclectic taste and I watch so many different kinds. Lately I’ve been really enjoying some gay bondage stuff. The sight of some little twink getting nailed by a huge dominant guy gets me quite excited. And as ever some female slave BDSM graces my laptop daily.
PornOCD: What last got you so excited your knickers couldn’t get off quick enough? lol
Alicia: The last thing was probably my first “crating” experience. For people who don’t know what that is, it’s basically extreme confinement. In my case, it was when a kinky playmate of mine suggested a play date. I would be encased in latex clothing; a latex hood that only has a hole for the mouth, be gagged, restrained, used as a sex toy for him and then sealed in a box at night. All this taking place for 2-3 days. Nothing makes you feel more like a sex-doll than being put away at night. It’s quite an intense session but with plenty of aftercare It’s the best!!
PornOCD: Do you have a favourite sexual position?
Alicia: Well, doggy is always a winner in my books, But I love cowgirl too.
PornOCD: What is 100% guaranteed to bring you to huge orgasm every time?
Alicia: Humiliation! Having my humanity taken away and being reduced to a toy. In the past I’ve cum hard in my knickers just reading about it. True story.
PornOCD: Who would you love to do porn scene with?
Alicia: Aside from Jesus? Dem abs doe! But seriously I’d really like to do a scene with Kink’s Lorelei Lee. Damn that woman destroys!
PornOCD: Your dream threesome?
PornOCD: Your dream one night stand?
Alicia: Chris Pine in a deserted cellar in steel restraints and him holding my gaze with his intense blue eyes as he fucks my throat. Too Graphic?
PornOCD: No! What can your fans look forward to seeing from you in 2016?
Alicia: Tits. Me actually possessing some. I start HRT any day now so get ready for some meagre curves! Hubba hubba! I’ve had some lovely offers from a few of our colonial cousins across the pond, in the Land of the Free! So hopefully I can get on organizing that in earnest, and do a bit of an international tour of my butthole. Stay tuned!
