Ladies and gentlemen today we bring you someone that needs no introduction; adult superstar Chanel Preston! Chanel Preston is a superstar of the highest order. From Penthouse model to porn star, this Alaskan native (and you thought it was all polar bears and Sarah Palin huh?) has been fire with everything she’s touched. She also makes sure she gives equal attention to the “business” side of show business as she is the current President of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC) and recently began directing as well. We caught up with Chanel recently to get her take on all things interracial. Enjoy.
CB: Chanel Preston. How are you lady?
Chanel Preston: I’m fine thank you.
CB: What are your thoughts on the term and characterization of the term interracial as it relates to porn?
Chanel Preston: I don’t feel like everyone uses the term interracial in the same way. I do feel that some, and hopefully most, use the term primarily for marketing purposes as that is a popular niche that has been created over time. However, that is not to say that there isn’t some level of racism in the industry as it relates to the term.
CB: So you would say it is more marketing than racism?
Chanel Preston: I think it’s more marketing. However, I think there is another overt racism issue as it relates to pay for performers. I’ve spoken to a few performers who felt that the pay was not the same. A girl has told me that, “if I wasn’t black I feel that I would be getting paid more to do these scenes.” I had to agree with her.
CB: In fairness the latter part of your statement is not solely a porn issue. That’s a mainstream Hollywood issue and overall job market issue as a whole (laughs hysterically). However, that gets me to thinking about another question. How do you feel about performers charging more for scenes with black male performers?
Chanel Preston: I personally do not agree with that and just feel that it’s not right. I would not feel comfortable ever charging more to work with a black male performer. Some may say that it’s a “specialty niche” and I charge more for that niche. However, me personally that’s just something that I won’t do.
CB: You were in the porn industry a number of years prior to performing in your first interracial scene. Was that your choice? Were you not interested? Looking for the right opportunity?
Chanel Preston: When I got in, and I feel like this happens to a lot of performers, I was given this “criteria” on how one should run their career. First there’s girl girl, then boy girl, then anal, then interracial and then any gang bangs or other types of fetishes. I followed this cliché that I was given. Now I had been in the business for about two years and honestly I really did wait that long to do interracial because I had done anal very early in my career. I was holding out for a Chanel Preston showcase movie (which never happened by the way… laughs) and I wanted to offer the movie something that I had not done before. For showcase movies the company always likes to put “her first something” on the box cover and I was afraid that if I didn’t have any firsts left that I wouldn’t get picked. It just so happened that “interracial” was the only first that I had left. That’s why I waited as long as I did because if not for that it would have been much sooner if not at the very beginning.
CB: Your first interracial scene; who was it for and who was it with?
Chanel Preston: My first Chanel Preston interracial scene was for Adam and Eve in The Secretary 3 I think was the title with Prince Yahshua.
CB: Assuming you chose, why did you choose that project and Prince?
Chanel Preston: I didn’t really know many black performers at the time (laughs). But I chose Prince Yahshua because he was one of the most popular performers and I knew him and had been around him. It was the obvious choice. As far as the company, the movie was a remake and in the original the girl had done her first interracial so Adam and Eve wanted someone for the remake who also would be doing their first interracial.
CB: And the overall experience was?
Chanel Preston: Prince Yahshua is good-looking and I knew I would enjoy myself. It was a feature so the sex was sort of choreographed but overall it was great and I really enjoyed it.
CB: Had you had sex with a black man prior to entering the porn business?
Chanel Preston: Yes.
CB: What was your best or most memorable interracial scene?
Chanel Preston: I liked my scene with Mandingo in Mandingo Massacre 8 for Jules Jordan video. I’m wearing a French maid outfit. I see those photos circulate all the time and I’m just like “that was such a fun scene”. Also it was an anal scene and as you know he’s massive. I just thought it was a super sexy and fun scene.
CB: Who are your favorite black male performers that you’ve worked with?
Chanel Preston: I love working with Prince Yahshua. I think he’s a great performer. I think Nat Turnher is super fucking sexy. I haven’t worked with him in a very long time but when I have I’ve enjoyed working with him. Jon Jon; I think he’s awesome. Mandingo; his dick fits inside me so nicely (laughs) and I find him to be adorable so I definitely would add him to that list as well.
CB: What black male performers are on your bucket list?
Chanel Preston: I am sort of ashamed to say that I worked with, correction that I “attempted” to work with, Shane Diesel the other day. I have to admit that Shane Diesel would not fit inside of me. I was really devastated because I think Shane is a really amazing person and I was really excited to work with him. For whatever reason it just was not happening and I was really disappointed and I don’t know if I will be given another chance (laughs). I have heard good things about Rob Piper but I haven’t met him in person. I will add him as well.
CB: Are there any upcoming interracial projects that you can share with us?
Chanel Preston: I shot a scene for Blacked.com with Jovan Jordan. I also recently directed my second movie; Smoke for James Deen Productions. I shot a scene with Dana DeArmond and Isiah Maxwell that was so much fun. That interracial threesome is going to be really good. Cinematically it’s just very appealing. We’re all in private school wearing private school outfits. Isiah looked amazing in his private school jacket and his glasses I just wanted to jump his bones.
CB: Isiah Maxwell is a good dude.
Chanel Preston: I heard so many amazing things about him and they are all true.
CB: If there was one myth that you could debunk about interracial porn what would it be?
Chanel Preston: It’s not all entirely about the taboo aspect of having sex with a black man or black woman. I think some of it is shot genuinely to appeal to the visual aspect of it as far as how aesthetically pleasing it is. I actually have an ex-boyfriend who was Hawaiian that loved interracial porn. When I used to ask him why he said he loved how it looks and he thought it looked stunning. I hear a lot of people talk in a similar fashion.
CB: It is ALWAYS a pleasure. Thanks for stopping by IRP411. We look forward to more contributions from you in the coming months.
Chanel Preston: Thanks for having me.

More Chanel Preston Interracial:
Virgo Peridot graces our pages for the first time and goodness what a treat she is. This chick has major fucking ass and looks fabulous in this Virgo Peridot interracial double penetration performance for Dog Fart. This big booty hottie hails from Florida, but has been making the rounds on the west coast. We most certainly will be looking for lots more interracial scenes from her. Diversity in porn comes in a variety of ways. We celebrate diversity not only in the hues of skin of our performers, but also in the shapes of their bodies and what passes as “beauty”. Kudos to Virgo Peridot baby!
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)
