If you want to hear an interesting story just ask a porn star how they got into the business. Some make perfect sense and you have that “a-ha” moment and some leave you scratching your head but they’ll always be interesting. Kleio Valentien falls under the head scratching category. Kleio grew up on a farm in Texas and after seeing Joanna Angel on a porn website decided that porn was the industry for her. See what I mean by interesting? She could have easily met a nice young Texan man, gotten married, and had a bunch of kids, going her whole life without even seeing Los Angeles. Lucky for us, that didn’t happen. Kleio is absolutely flawless and you can tell because she doesn’t cake her face in make-up. Her tattooed, rocker chick style is badass and sexy. It’s not every day that a woman like Kleio Valentien comes along. Mens Mag Daily was able to chat with Kleio about her life growing up, her love for tattoos, and how she made her way to New York.
Kleio Valentien: No actually I’m not but I do live here.
Mens Mag Daily: Very nice, me too. Can you tell us how exactly you got into the adult industry?
Kleio Valentien: I was actually at home watching porn online. I was watching Joanna Angel taking a huge penis in her asshole and I knew I had to be a part of that. (Laughs)
Mens Mag Daily: So that was inspiring for you?
Kleio Valentien: Yes, very. (Laughs)
Mens Mag Daily: But how did you actually get in? Who did you contact?
Kleio Valentien: No I actually went on an adult website and I filled out their model form. I filled it out and sent some photos and a couple of weeks later I got a phone call asking me if I wanted to come out and shoot.
Mens Mag Daily: What was your job prior to the adult industry?
Kleio Valentien: Before this I was a Vet tech and I also bartended at night. It was very normal before this. I was a Vet tech during the day then I would bartend until about two in the morning and do it all over again the next day.
Mens Mag Daily: So was porn something you had considered seriously before you actually decided to go into it?
Kleio Valentien: Not really, I just saw some pictures of Joanna and it looked like so much fun to me. I really wanted to be a part of it so I figured what the heck? Let’s see what happens.
Mens Mag Daily: Were you a freaky chick sexually before you started being filmed?
Kleio Valentien: Oh yeah, definitely. I was very curious and everything. Even at my bartending job, if things got slow I would take my fellow bartender into the walk-in and fool around so I was always very sexual. I just never thought about doing it on camera for other people to see. It was just that decision I made that day to do it.
Mens Mag Daily: Were these male or female bartenders that you messed around with in the walk-in?
Kleio Valentien: It was a male bartender. But there was a female that always used to come into the bar and I found out later that she had a crush on me. I thought that she was super-hot. Her and I fooled around as well. Those are my bartending stories. (Laughs)
Mens Mag Daily: You have a very unique look; did you always have that type of look?
Kleio Valentien: I started getting tattoos when I turned 18 and it just kind of went from there. I actually had to hide them from my parents back then but I just kept going. I love the artwork. I just want to get more.
Mens Mag Daily: Very cool, so where did you grow up?
Kleio Valentien: I grew up in a very small town in Texas.
Mens Mag Daily: Ah, you’re a Southern girl?
Kleio Valentien: I am a Southern girl. I grew up on a farm. I was home schooled. This is definitely a different lifestyle from what I am used to.
Mens Mag Daily: I could imagine, what is life like growing up on a farm?
Kleio Valentien: It’s really different. It was obviously different being home schooled as well because you don’t have as much exposure to other kids.
Mens Mag Daily: Okay, so it was a very small town existence?
Kleio Valentien: Yes, it definitely was. We ground our own wheat for bread. We killed our own turkey on Thanksgiving. We had to do all of that so if we didn’t do it then we didn’t have it pretty much.
Mens Mag Daily: That’s pretty interesting.
Kleio Valentien: Yeah, it’s definitely different from most of the other people I know in the industry.
Mens Mag Daily: You don’t have a Southern accent though.
Kleio Valentien: I’ve worked very hard not to have that. Whenever I go back home for more than a week it really starts coming out again. But I’ve tried hard to cover it up and tone it down.
Mens Mag Daily: Does your family know what you do?
Kleio Valentien: Yes they do, they definitely do. I don’t think it’s something you could completely hide with the internet and everything.
Mens Mag Daily: Are they cool with it?
Kleio Valentien: Yeah I mean they’re totally fine. I’m still their girl and I’m still the same person. I just do something a little bit different from what they thought.
Mens Mag Daily: You don’t give off the typical porn star vibe.
Kleio Valentien: I’m just me. I like to have good conversation. I like to have fun. I guess because I grew up in such a small town with all the family values and everything, maybe that has something to do with it, I don’t know.
Mens Mag Daily: So how do you live in New York? Isn’t L.A. like the porn capital?
Kleio Valentien: Yes it is, I was just visiting New York and I feel in love it so I decided to just move here. I kind of packed everything up that week; drove out here with no place to live and that was it. What I do is, I fly out to L.A. for a week out of every month, I shoot a whole bunch and then I come back. I’m kind of separate from the whole porn world because I get to come home. I am going to live out there over the summer though so I can work more. I’m definitely going to miss it here, I love it here.
Mens Mag Daily: What was it like moving from this extremely small town to New York City?
Kleio Valentien: I was visiting here for about a year back and forth. I really love to be here. People are always saying that New Yorkers are mean but there are so many wonderful, genuine people out here. They might have a busy schedule but the people I’ve met here are very straightforward and I love that. There’s no talking behind people’s backs and everything.
Mens Mag Daily: I’m imagining that you date big tattooed guys, am I right?
Kleio Valentien: I’ve dated all types of guys from tattooed guys, to blue collar guys, oil field workers, a little bit of everything. I’m not one to discriminate really. As long as I can get along with them then we’re good.
Mens Mag Daily: You’re very pretty.
Kleio Valentien: Thank you.
Mens Mag Daily: You’re welcome. Why didn’t you just become a regular model?
Kleio Valentien: I have a lot of tattoos which kind of hinders me from doing that. I’m also only 5’6 so I’m not very tall. When I was younger I did want to do that. I realized that I didn’t have a lot of the qualities that are kind of necessary for that field and the porn just kind of fell in my lap.
Mens Mag Daily: And I’ve noticed you don’t wear a lot of make-up.
Kleio Valentien: No, I don’t. I rarely wore it before I started shooting porn. When I first got into porn they were asking about heels and bras and underwear and I’m like what are those? (Laughs) Who wears those? It’s really uncomfortable. That’s not who I am. Right now I’m barefoot in shorts.
Mens Mag Daily: That’s cool. I appreciate the natural beauty you have going on.
Kleio Valentien: Well, thank you. I appreciate that. I usually just put my hair in a ponytail, put on some jeans, a wife beater, and some chucks and I’m good to go. (Laughs)
Mens Mag Daily: And you’re writing for www.Popporn.com now, right?
Kleio Valentien: Yeah, I really don’t even know how it came about. I just got an e-mail from one of the guys over there asking me if I wanted to write articles and I actually hate writing. I really do, I hate it. I’m dyslexic and I’ve never really written anything before so it was a whole new thing. They said I could write about whatever I wanted to and I have three articles up now. They’ve been getting a good response. I kind of put my honesty in my writing. I don’t say things just because somebody wants to hear it. I write what I’m feeling that day.
Mens Mag Daily: Okay, so are you gaining an appreciation for writing now or do you still hate it?
Kleio Valentien: I still hate it. (Laughs)
Mens Mag Daily: Okay so it’s mandatory, because my readers want them, sex questions time. Here comes the classic, what is your favorite sexual position?
Kleio Valentien: It would have to be doggie. I like it when somebody grabs me by the hips and pulls me back onto them. It’s my absolute favorite?
Mens Mag Daily: And the next one is, do you enjoy performing oral sex?
Kleio Valentien: I do, I definitely do. I absolutely love it, I love to please. It’s just awesome, I love it.
Mens Mag Daily: Okay Kleio, it’s your time to plug away, what should we be looking out for?
Kleio Valentien: My fans can always keep up with me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/KleioValentien. And obviously, I’ve shot tons of stuff for Burning Angel that everybody should check out. I also have a bunch of scenes up at Brazzers and Naughty America.
