Been thinking about Vivian Ireene Pierce a LOT of late…maybe it’s the “blog gods” telling me to relate my experience of working with her to you all. Here we go…
I’ve been a fan of Viv’s since I first saw her on RopExpert…I mean, what’s not to love? Redhead, gorgeous, long legs…ah, yes, indeed, I’m a fan. I first met her at FetCon (a convention held once yearly in Tampa, Florida where you can go and meet and even work with bondage and fetish models) in 2006. Lordy, I was soooooooo shy back then…I’m surprised I even had the nerve to approach/talk to her! She was very nice and extremely friendly…I was immeadiatly taken aback by it all. I was thrilled to have finally met one of my fave models in the flesh…what a moment!
A little less than a year later, I contacted her about a shoot. She did the proper “model due diligence”, meaning, she talked with several of my friends and other models I’d shot with (i.e.: checked my references…everything came up good) and we went back and forth a bit about the dates available until finally settling on one. She was going to be in Vegas, so would drive down to Tucson to shoot with me. OY, was I ever in Heaven…I was gonna shoot with one of my all-time favorite models…nothing could possibly go wrong.
Somebody kick “Murphy’s” ass for me please…I came smack dab into “Murphy’s Law” (“Anything that can go wrong WILL go wrong”) while she was driving in. Me, in my usual naive way, thought I could get her a room at a local hotel near the freeway the same night of her arrival. BUT…the annual “Gem and Mineral Show” was happening at the SAME TIME she and I were set to shoot, and hotel space was at a minimum, if not non-existent, in town. How fucking DARE they have an annual gem and mineral show the same time I was gonna shoot with Viv…I mean, come ON, Tucson…PRIORITIES, please!! (lol)
I was soooooooo busted…Lord only knows why I didn’t think to reserve a room sooner. I bit the bullet and called her while she was driving in…and she was OK with spending the night at my place. I think Viv was the very first model I’ve hosted at my place (future staying-overs on my couch would include: Kimberly Marvel, Kordelia Devonshire and Samantha Grace)…thank GOD my references checked out, I guess. If worse had come to worse, a local model of mine, Angel, had offered her place up as well for the traveling gal to bunk at (nice to have a back-up plan, I guess).
I waited just off the freeway for her to arrive…and when she did, she saw me and said, “Oh, it’s YOU!” and fell into a big hug with me. She REMEMBERED me!! Flattering, that! She told me she was even more fine with staying over now that she really knew who I was…she remembered me from FetCon as being respectful and shy…and most importantly, harmless. We drove our cars back to my place and began shooting.
Viv is fan-tas-tic at her job…she can become the “helpless damsel” at the drop of a hat. A couple of times she gave me such great “damsel” looks, I almost dove in to “save” her…when ironically enough, I was the “villain” I’d be saving her from…lol.
Since we got a late start, we shot until 4 am. No lie…the shoot officially wrapped at 4 am. We got about 5 hours sleep (me in the bed in my bedroom, her on the bed inside my sleeper-couch in the living room…minds outta the gutters, pervs…lol), then we gassed up her car and I showed her the best way back to the freeway.
I HAVE to set up another shoot with her now that I’m doing better looking bondage… Anyway, we still talk a great deal of the time…and on every holiday (Christmas, New Years, etc) I get a “Holiday Text” from her, just checking in and saying “hi”. Bless that gal’s heart…I really adore her.
