The interview I’m re-producing for you here was originally done for the Rope_Dreams Yahoo group (https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Rope_Dreams/) and while it has no direct correlation to me, TucsonTied.com or StacieSnowBound.com, I get the feeling that Stacie has such a huge fanbase here that you all’d like to hear a bit about the lady and what she’s up to these days. Head to Rope_Dreams for a lot more bondage stuff…I’m a member of the group and Rob (the Moderator there and my very good friend) posts my stuff along with a host of others from around the net.
This is going to be a long blog post today…I’ll post the interview in it’s entirety, then at the end throw in some of my snaps of her. 🙂
I recently asked Stacie if she would do an interview with me and she did not hesitate to say yes!!!
And now, meet Stacie Snow 🙂
1. So, are you or are you not officially retired from bondage modeling?
This is a hard one for me to answer. On the one hand, I would hate to admit that I am out if the industry as it was such a big part of my life for so long. But on the other hand, I really don’t have the time for it any more as I really need to put all of my focus into school. However, I did do the fan photo shoot at this last FetCon with spudRus. Also, I don’t want to spoil anything, but I do have something coming up later this year as well
2. Describe your very first times tied up both off camera and on camera?
Off camera, was just the typical silly play with my first real boyfriend. Using neckties to tie my wrists and ankles to the bed. Very soft and sensual. My first on camera experience was absolutely horrid. I made a terrible mistake and allowed a glamour photographer to book me a shoot with some bondage producer he had heard of. I never did any research on the guy. In fact, I went to this two-day shoot in a different state without even knowing the name of the producer I was working with. I was excited about the amount of money he was offering me and thought I could trust the glamour photographer. I barely made it through the first day of shooting. I was humiliated and hurt badly. It was so terrible that the videographer that the bondage producer worked with for years never went back. There is so much more to this experience, however it would take pages to get the whole thing on paper.
3. What is it about your work that you think makes you so popular with your fans?
Ha! That is a great question. I have no idea. Hmmmm…. If I had to come up with something… maybe it is because I know that without my fans I would never have gotten to where I did and I am and always will be grateful for them.
4. How did you choose your modeling name?
Who’s to say it’s not my birth name? 😛 Just kidding. I started off as a dancer a long, long time ago. The agency I worked for said all of our names had to have the letter ‘I’ in it. He had a list of names. I literally closed my eyes and pointed and got Stacie. When I started modeling, I wanted a last name. Growing up, my adorable little sister had an imaginary friend, which led me to making up an imaginary friend for myself. Her name was Ana Maria Snow. Don’t ask. I have no idea how I came up with that. But when it came time to making up my last name, I thought Stacie Snow just sounded right. J
5. With the 50 Shades of Grey movie bringing bondage into the mainstream media, some peoplehave commented that BDSM represents an abusive relationship? How would you respond to people who make statements like that?
People can be ignorant. I think that the movie portrayed BDSM extremely poorly. Having been in the industry as long as I have and seeing BDSM in real life and knowing many people whom actually live that lifestyle, the movie gave BDSM a terrible image. If people are truly curious about what BDSM really is, there are other ways to get true information and knowledge about it.
6. Of all the shoots you have done, which was the most fun and memorable for you and why?
This is a difficult question to answer. I am a very sentimental person. Having a great relationship with the photographer/producer (and other models, if the shoot called for it) really adds to the fun and memories for me. Every shoot I did with my mom and my sister was absolutely amazing. Actually, there was one shoot that stands out. I was working with NaughtyTies and my sister was there. I was naked and my hands were tied above my head. My sister strutted her stuff onto the set to tickle me. Just the strut alone made that one of the most memorable and fun experiences. She is a trip.
7. What was it like to model with other members of your family?
Absolutely amazing. I have a very close relationship with my mom and my sister (as you can see in the work we did together). We had so much fun in all of the work we did together.
8. What do you think are the best and worst aspects of the adult industry?
Best would be the wonderful people you meet and the wonderful places you can go. Worst would definitely be the flakiness of people and the safety risk.
9. How did the bondage modeling industry change from when you first began modeling until your last shoot?
I would have to say the biggest change was the economy. When the economy dropped, a lot of hobbyists were unable to pay for models any longer and a lot of fans had difficulty purchasing content. I also noticed a lot more amateur girls coming in and undercutting the prices of the professional models. There was a lot more flaking (other models and photographers/producers alike), which made it much more complicated for professional models to count on a shoot actually happening.
10.What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done off-camera?
Hmmmm… back when I was dating my High School sweetheart and living in Chicago, I gave him a blowjob while we were going through a tollbooth on the toll road. I would definitely say that is at the top of the ‘kinkiest things I have done’ list. 😛
11.What advice do you have for others who are entering or already in the bondage modeling business?
CHECK REFERENCES!!! I cannot tell people enough how important it is to check references. Safety people!!!
12.What else do you want your fans to know about you and your work?
I just want my fans to know that I truly appreciate each and every one of them. Without my fans, I definitely would have never gotten to where I did in the industry.
