Ladies and gentlemen allow us to introduce you to Aaliyah Love. Aaliyah, a native Chicagoan, entered the porn ranks in 2011 after being a teacher for a number of years. Aaliyah stands a petite 5’2”, but don’t let the diminutive package fool you. This spinner throws down! Aaliyah has grown in name and stature since her porn entry. We have watched her career arc follow a trajectory from a solo cam girl, to girl girl only performer, to boy girl performer with white males, to recently performing in scenes with black males. We caught up with Aaliyah recently to get her take on all things interracial. Enjoy.
CB: Aaliyah how are you? Welcome to interracialporn411.com.
Aaliyah: Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate being on interracialporn411.com and I look forward to our conversation.
CB: You’re here because you have recently begun performing in interracial scenes. And your first interracial scene was for Elegant Angel in the movie Pretty Petite correct?
Aaliyah: Yes that’s correct. It was a choice and I chose that project in particular.
CB: What was it about that project in particular that made you choose that to be your first?
Aaliyah: LOL! Oh yes I had a lot of offers before this one but I wanted every interracial scene, especially my very first, to be just right. My biggest issue with interracial porn, and many performers share my sentiment, is the way it’s portrayed. Not throughout the industry, but what I believe to be “the majority” is something I don’t agree with. Ya know the whole “big scary black man taking advantage of an unsuspecting white woman” I just don’t agree with that. I just wanted it to be two beautiful people making love. So I went to Mimefreak, who directed the film, and I spoke to him about it. Luckily he agreed with me. I didn’t want the whole scene to be mentioning his big black cock or anything like that. I just wanted it to be two people fucking and that’s what we did.
CB: Was your position on how you wanted your portrayal to be in your interracial scenes known prior to the booking of your scene or was that a demand that came after?
Aaliyah: I had known Mimefreak for years. He approached me and said,” I want your first interracial scene.” I said okay but it’s got to be this way and I proceeded to lay it out for him.
CB: Did you choose Prince Yahshua? If so, why?
Aaliyah: I had known Prince for years and we have been flirting for years. It just seemed like the natural and right choice. I think I chose correctly because the scene came out great.
CB: Inquiring minds would like to know had you had sex with a black man prior to this scene with Prince?
Aaliyah: (giggles) Prior to the business I was not the sexual person that I am now. I was a prude and shy. But I managed to have sex with every color in the rainbow. My pussy has never discriminated depending on people’s skin color.
CB: How do you feel about the term “interracial” in porn?
Aaliyah: I think the term interracial is absolutely ridiculous. When I fucked Keni Styles, who is an Asian man, it wasn’t labeled as interracial. When I fuck all those beautiful Latina girls that’s not labeled as interracial either. When you say interracial what you really mean is black guy and white woman. Now I understand it’s a category and in certain circumstances can even be considered a fetish. However, to fetishize it every single time kind of makes it seem as if it’s not a normal thing and I disagree. As a businesswoman I understand that some things like MILFs, teens, etc. are categorized for traffic purposes or to sell movies. But as a human being I think there is a level of racism involved in that characterization and I disagree. I know many female performers who refuse to do interracial. Many people like to speculate about their reasoning’s and call them racists or whatever. But I know many of these girls simply do not agree with the term interracial and don’t want to be part of any of that. Me personally, I did not want to limit any of my experiences or my performances and I knew me boycotting the term or the category wasn’t going to change anything in the industry. Therefore, I decided to do it. I’m very fortunate that I’m in a place that I can do so on my terms as far as who I fuck, how I fuck and personally I will never be a part of the derogatory, racist IR porn that we see from some. Now thankfully I’m seeing some progress in the market and industry taking a turn I think for the better. There are companies going for the romantic side and not even acknowledging or establishing in the scene that he’s black and white. However, we still have a long way to go.
CB: Any upcoming interracial scenes that you can tell us about?
Aaliyah: I recently was given a showcase (editors note: a title that features a performer in every scene) where I got to pick all of my favorite performers to fuck. I had a threesome scene with Prince and my favorite girl to fuck; Cherie DeVille. I think that might be my hottest IR scene and maybe one of the hottest scenes of my career. I also had the pleasure of working with Sean Michaels in The Ultimate Blonde. I met Sean Michaels and requested him. It’s hardly ever that I get to fuck someone that I’ve never met or fuck before and we had amazing chemistry. It was a really great scene. Also I have a new scene out with Jovan Jordan. (editors note: Aaliyah Love and Jovan Jordan for Blacked.com).
CB: Are there any black males that you would like to work with that you haven’t yet?
Aaliyah: As a matter of fact I just put my list together (laughs). I can’t remember everybody right now but I know Moe Johnson, Isiah Maxwell and Nat Turnher.
CB: If there is one myth that you could debunk about interracial porn what would it be?
Aaliyah: A lot of the interracial porn that is already on the market portrays these black men as thugs, as rough men who disrespect women, etc. and the women as unsuspecting victims who are afraid of black men. I want you guys to truly know that these people are following scripts and nobody is there unless they want to be there. A lot of times you see these men arrive in very nice clothes speaking very properly and being very respectful. Only to be given a jersey and a gold chain by the producer and told to talk with the ghetto accent. Just because you see it on camera does not mean that is who that person is a real life. Porn performers are just that, “performers”. I know this is a fantasy for some, but I think there are many fantasies that involve black men. I am just glad that the industry is turning somewhat to depict black men as the intelligent, strong, sexual beings that they are instead of the derogatory stereotype that racist white people think black people are which is ridiculous.
CB: Spoken like a true educator
Aaliyah: (laughs hysterically)
