Since 2008, director/performer Nikki Silver has been celebrating the female body in its natural state, which is to say, hairy. Her studio Naughty Natural showcases performers who eschew the grooming that dominates not only porn, but the lives of many American women. Nikki and her costars avoid shaving and waxing not only their vulvas, but also their legs, armpits, and anywhere else that hair grows on their bodies. While many studios that produce hirsute content fetishize these bodies, Nikki simply presents them as beautiful and sexy.
With Hairy Lesbian Casting Couch, Nikki tackles the casting couch genre of amateur porn and gives it a feminist spin. Not only that, she dominates and casts one of the hairiest girls in porn, the adorable and pixie-like Kisa Fae. Nikki was generous enough to write a short essay about this flick, giving us insight into its conception and her relationship with Kisa.
I have been a model in the hairy niche for over 10 years. I’ve become very familiar with this genre. Of course while there are many creative people both in front of and behind the camera, the larger hairy sites dictate a strict regime of what is acceptable. Very girl next door, nothing too elaborate in terms of storyline or dynamics and generally an emphasis on a young or youngish girl exploring her sexuality.
As I’ve gotten older myself this type of presentation makes less and less sense for me. I’ve been sexually active for over 15 years and definitely had more variety of sex with more variety of people and genders than most people in their 50’s! While my taste spans a variety of acts, dynamics and genders, I’ve done it all; the experimental phase is over.
I really love how some sites really hone in on a certain dynamic and then make that larger than life to excite the viewer. It’s fun, it’s interesting, it’s role playing and something I certainly do in my personal life. I’ve felt much more dominant myself lately and have been doing things on my site deemed more mature in terms of the way I’m dressing and presenting myself.
In my DVD, Hairy Casting Couch, the model Kisa Fae and I talked and came up with a scenario that was super hot to both of us. She was 19 at the time of filming and this really was her first porn shoot ever. She is a lifestyle kinkster and into age play as well as consensual non-consent. I am into age play as a mommy/top and love getting to consensually push people’s boundaries.
I haven’t seen many casting couch scenes where the producer is female and I’ve not seen any others where both models are hairy and as hairy as we both are. As a porn producer within a patriarchal society/world it is very important to me to push the idea of female power within female sexuality. I would not be comfortable only presenting female submissiveness, but I think presenting that submissiveness in response to the power of another woman is, well, powerful!
We also worked a lot of hair fetish stuff into it and made it a body-positive thing where Kisa says she was made fun of in school for her body hair and I’m telling her that’s silly and that she’s beautiful as is. At the same time as I’m pushing her boundaries physical interaction/sexuality wise, I am also pushing her towards greater self-love.
The stuff that great, healthy D/s (dom/sub) dreams are made of!
I can’t describe how fun it is to get to act out my own fantasies as well. I really do enjoy pushing and teasing and tormenting and am thrilled to find models excited to be on the other end of that. Through spending time with and talking in depth with my models about what they are into, I am able to get a complex and nuanced perspective on their sexuality.
I hope to continue to create scenes which express the thing, or one of the things both models are most turned on by doing, and in turn present a more authentic and stimulating film for the viewer.
