It’s hard to not like Aaliyah Love. She’s tiny, blonde, giggly, and has a sick little body. She’s also insanely sexy. For proof, just watch any of her scenes. Because of her innocent looks it’s not hard to believe that Love was once a struggling pre-school teacher. In a strange turn of events including the need for a bigger bank account she started webcamming, the first step toward her career as one of the hottest pornstars in the industry. It’s also no wonder she works as much as she does as she is very pleasant and charming. Mens Mag Daily had the chance to sit down and chat with Aaliyah Love to discuss her childhood, her adventures in webcamming, and why she usually dates other pornstars.
Aaliyah Love: I’m originally from a very small cornfield town in Illinois.
Mens Mag Daily: That’s interesting, so what were you like in your younger years?
Aaliyah Love: I was a total dorky kid. I got picked on a lot. I didn’t have a lot of friends at all. I was really into nature. The funny thing is everything I got picked on about as a kid has benefitted me as an adult which is pretty ironic.
Mens Mag Daily: How so?
Aaliyah Love: Let’s see, there’s my nose. When I was a kid they would call me Miss Piggy. Now, everyone compliments my nose. They used to make fun of my small tits and tell me that my chest was as flat as my face and now men pay good money to see my boobs. I also used to get picked on for being short but now everybody seems to love it.
Mens Mag Daily: Kids are cruel.
Aaliyah Love: Yeah, fuck ‘em.
Mens Mag Daily: At what point did you even start considering the adult industry as a possible career choice?
Aaliyah Love: I was actually a broke pre-school teacher and I was also going to college at the time. I was super broke because teachers don’t make shit. I was living in a bad neighborhood and I drove this shitty minivan with the back window smashed out. It was pretty bad so I discovered webcamming. I figured I would do it for like three or four weeks just to make some extra money and get ahead. At that time I was really prude and shy. I kept thinking that I wasn’t like those girls and that I was just going to do it for a bit. That was eleven years ago. (Laughs) What happened was I was really good at webcamming and I became the website’s spokeswoman. They started bringing me to Playboy mansion parties and porn conventions so I started meeting porn people and talking about opening my own website and stuff like that. I slowly started easing into porn.
Mens Mag Daily: When you say you were prude, what do you mean? Give me your definition of prude.
Aaliyah Love: Okay, well I only had sex with like four guys and they were all guys I was in a long term relationship with and that I loved. I wore baggy clothes and I never wanted to show my body. I would wear a t-shirt over my bikini at the beach. I would wear t-shirts down to my knees. I was a party girl but I was never a slutty girl. I enjoyed sex but it was a very private thing for me.
Mens Mag Daily: Were people you knew surprised when they found out you were doing porn?
Aaliyah Love: Oh, hell yeah, I mean I was a party girl and kind of a hippie too. I was also like the clean cut teacher so all my friends that knew me back then were in shock. Some of them are still in disbelief.
Mens Mag Daily: Did you have any reservations about going further than webcamming?
Aaliyah Love: I definitely did. My progression into porn was slow. I started with my own little website which was mostly solo scenes and things that were my idea of sexy like wearing bunny ears or a schoolgirl skirt. It was just really basic stuff. It was really amateur. After that I started doing girl/girl and then years later I started doing guys. I’m not one of those girls who feels the need to outdo herself and do crazy gangbangs and physical shit. I’m also not the girl who feels that she has to do a scene or else I won’t be able to pay my rent. I always did what I enjoy and what I feel comfortable with and because of that I love porn and the industry. I have nothing bad to say and it’s made my life great.
Mens Mag Daily: Were you into girls before?
Aaliyah Love: I definitely was but I was way too fucking shy to ever do anything about it. If a guy turns me down it’s whatever but when it comes to girls, and I’m sure a lot of straight guys would agree, there’s something really intimidating about a beautiful woman. Porn took that away from me because I can go up to any girl I think is hot and ask her if she wants to shoot. I’m pretty spoiled now. I don’t have to be nervous and worry if she’s going to turn me down, I can just ask her if she wants to fuck.
Mens Mag Daily: Has your personal sex life changed since porn, are you less prude?
Aaliyah Love: Yeah, I wouldn’t call myself prude at all anymore. Not only do I get to fuck most girls and guys that I want to fuck but I’ve basically tried everything that I want to try. I have way more confidence now. I can hit on somebody and not worry about getting turned down, my feelings won’t get hurt. I fuck mostly porn people anyway off camera.
Mens Mag Daily: Do you?
Aaliyah Love: Yeah because everybody in porn is tested so the general consensus is that if we all just have sex with each other then it keeps everything safe. Also, people that don’t work in porn are either one of two ways. Either they see you as kind of a novelty and ask you a bunch of questions about porn and treat you like the entertainment. They just want the pornstar experience and it starts to feel like they’re hiring you for a job or something. Or they could be jealous and insecure about all the guys I fuck but all girls have had sex before with other guys, it just wasn’t on camera. One guy I was dating watched one of my scenes and he got mad because I called the guy in the scene honey. I call everybody honey but he was mad because I called him honey and I guess he thought it should be reserved for him or whatever so I basically just stick to porn dudes. (Laughs) I just can’t deal.
Mens Mag Daily: I was speaking to Ashley Fires recently and she said you’re one of her favorite girls to perform with.
Aaliyah Love: Aww, that’s sweet of her. Yeah she was one of the first girls I performed with and we always shot together for our websites. We did webcam shows together. We even took a week long porn trip to Montreal together and fucked a bunch of French Canadian girls. We haven’t worked together in years but we’re planning to get together and shoot some scenes.
Mens Mag Daily: So you’ve had no negative experiences in the porn industry?
Aaliyah Love: No to be completely honest, the most abuse I’ve received while in the business is the mean stuff people say on Twitter and that’s basically my only complaint. For female performers, Twitter is part of our job. It’s how companies can see us and how we can promote scenes we have coming up. Some of the stuff on there is really the only negativity that I’ve encountered. Nothing bad has ever happened on set though. The worst thing that has happened is that maybe a couple of these poor guys can’t keep their dicks hard when they need to but we get through it.
Mens Mag Daily: Speaking of Twitter, you have like 80 billion followers.
Aaliyah Love: I do, it all started from webcamming. Most of them are very good to me. It’s just the occasional jerk that will say something stupid but you just block him and move on, still annoying though. I was at 74,000 forever but when my first boy/girl scenes came out it like doubled overnight. It literally went from 74,000 to like 140,000 in a week.
Mens Mag Daily: Is webcamming easier since it’s just you?
Aaliyah Love: I wouldn’t say it’s easier but it’s different. The thing that drove me away from it is that it’s so isolated and lonely. I was very dedicated so I would do it all day 5 or 6 days a week. I would look up and realize I hadn’t left the house or talked to another person in 3 or 4 days. In porn, girls can get together. When you’re on webcam there’s nobody to talk to. You don’t have a boss either but there’s nobody to motivate you or tell you you’re doing a good job. I love webcam and I’m going to get back into it when I re-launch my website but I love porn because it’s an adventure, no two days are alike. I’m at a different location fucking a beautiful person, I just love it.
Mens Mag Daily: Who are some of your favorite female performers to work with?
Aaliyah Love: Off the top of my head I like Cherie Deville. I like Dani Daniels. But if you ask me again in 5 minutes I’ll probably have a totally different answer, it changes all the time. (Laughs)
Mens Mag Daily: Cherie Deville is hot. I interviewed her.
Aaliyah Love: She is so hot, she is so good. I was one of her very first scenes and it was just incredible. There was a connection. We’ve done like 50 scenes together. Producers would ask me who I wanted to do a scene with and I would just keep saying Cherie Deville. We also did a lot of stuff for our websites. After a while the companies started catching on so I don’t get her as much.
Mens Mag Daily: Tell me a crazy story about webcam; I know there has to be one.
Aaliyah Love: I’ve seen and done it all on webcam but the craziest stuff is things that people want to show me. They want to be naughty but they have no outlet so they pay me to watch and I have seen some crazy things. There was a time when one of my friends had this super crazy stalker fan who would buy her five grand worth of lingerie at a time. He bought her a car and a computer. One day we were going to do a girl/girl Skype show for him and for some reason the internet kept going down. We were really counting on the few hundred dollars or whatever it was that we were going to make. We called him up and told him we were upset and he offered to send us ten grand each just because. We didn’t even do anything. This was like six years ago; I wish I had that money today. (Laughs) He would mail her boxes of cash. I saw it.
Mens Mag Daily: Okay Aaliyah give us the whole rundown of everything you have coming up.
Aaliyah Love: My first interracial scene is coming out soon, in August. It’s through Elegant Angel and directed by MimeFreak. I picked my male talent, his name is Prince. It’s probably one of the hottest scenes I’ve ever done. It’s called Pretty Petites. It’s so fucking hot; I can’t wait for everybody to see that one. Once that comes out I can start shooting interracial all the time. I have a feature coming out also; it’s the parody of American Hustle. It’s directed by Will Ryder and should be coming out at the end of summer. I’m also re-launching my website, www.aaliyahlove.com. I’ve been working for a couple of months with Cherry Pimps who will be hosting my site and I’ve been working really hard to do everything that my fans have ever requested so I’m sitting on a shit ton of scenes. We’re hoping to launch in August. And also my Twitter is https://twitter.com/AaliyahLove69.
