Vertical Kitty was allured by the lovely and ever so gracious Christie L'Amour, porn actress turned independent escort. What fascinated us most is Ms. L'Amour's business saavy to not only carve her niche as a well known adult actress but her ability to run her business as a successful, female entrepreneur. Ms. L'Amour has resisted the common social stigma associated with porn actresses by maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle. She is totally fullfilled by her business, associates and friends and it shines through her calming yet vivacious attitude. We could all stand to learn a lot from her!
Ms. L'Amour's business as a professional adult actress continues to thrive. She applies a rather eccentric approach in that her associates are exclusively family members. While some may find this type of partnership rather arresting, she atttributes the success of her business to the trust and respect that they all share as cousins and siblings.
Ms. L'Amour opened up to us in a series of questions that will provide the reader with intimate insight about her professional life:
Q: How did you get into the adult entertainment industry?
A: I had been working with my cousin Giancarlo for several years as his assistant in the insurance industry. We found ourselves victims of the crash in the financial markets and started working second and third jobs to make ends meet. It just so happened that I showed Giancarlo a want ad for a night driver. No one knows the roads better than him. He was hired immediately as a driver working for an escort agency. One evening, I offered to ride with him. He was driving two escorts who were each working for two different agencies. It turned out to be a busy night and at one point the girls were about to drop an assignment. While my cousin and the two ladies argued about who was going to deliver the bad news to the agency I jumped in and offered to take on the assignment. Everyone shut up. The two escorts gave me their makeup and heels and I was off. Wow. Everything turned out great and I was hooked. It sure beat my other jobs by far. A few weeks later, I asked my cousin to connect me with the agencies and the rest is history. After a month working for the agencies, I became an independent escort. Giancarlo had some friends in the adult industry who got me some gigs acting in adult movies. We both dropped all our other endeavors and focused our efforts on the adult business. Now, he works for me…LOL…as my Boy Toy and male talent. I keep him busy and the benefits are great! There is a huge line behind him wanting to step in for the Boy Toy position. Giancarlo is family so until he retires I will keep things the way they are.
A: This may sound a bit unusual, but I was raised in a very conservative family along with my 4 younger sisters. Our cousin, Giancarlo, was the only male with whom our dad would allow us out of the house. Our dad loved him. My dad was ex-military and Giancarlo had attended a military academy. Boy, did he have our dad fooled and wrapped around his finger. He was like a fox in a hen house. I and two of my other sisters lost our virginity to him. No regrets…it was fun. We have all been great friends and lovers through the years. No Drama just a great relationships. He has taken us to swinger’s events and clubs and that’s how we all turned out to be bisexual. So, play among all of us is quite natural.
All of my sisters have since married, some successfully and others not so much. I have stayed single and will probably never marry. I am happy with my lifestyle and have everything I want.
The concept about play with family clicked among hobbyists from the beginning. Together, we offer many different sessions for couples, single women and men. Giancarlo also works independently with couples, ladies and men just as I do. He is a great photographer and videographer. Sometimes when they are available, one of my sisters will join. It has been a huge success.
The great thing about working with Family is that we understand each other and think alike. We focus on our clients and their complete satisfaction. It’s great to work with others who share the same objectives and we trust each other with our lives. I feel truly blessed.
Q. How do you maintain such a hectic tour schedule while managing your personal life?
A: Without my cousin's help, I could never do it all by myself. There is so much that has to be handled that it would be overwhelming for one person. The great thing is that we really love what we do. Mixing business with pleasure is never an issue because pleasure is my business. I love how that sounds.
Q: Describe the difference for you between filming adult movies and escorting
A: Escorting is a lot more fun that filming adult movies. I get to spend quality time and build relationships with my clients which I enjoy more than anything. This does not happen in adult film. Also, staging a movie is strenuous and requires a lot of time and effort. People do not realize how much a film is edited and what it takes to film a porn shoot. The constant stopping of action and posing makes it more work than fun. Although, I must admit, I love the camera and it gets me very hot and horny to know that I am being watched. That is what I love most about adult films. I am a true exhibitionist.
Q: Profile your best client
A: My best client is a person who calls to set up an appointment and before I have to ask, has already forwarded me all his information for screening and fantasy request. He doesn’t ask questions beyond when is the best time to meet. He will never send multiple text messages, call or email repeatedly to get pumped up for the experience. He will arrive on time and will either be perfectly groomed or will ask to use my facilities to freshen up. He will always respect my wishes and play safely. He is respectful of my time just as I am respectful of his. He will ask in advance before giving my name as a reference. Above all, he is a person who will treat me the way he would like to be treated. Relationships are built on trust and respect. When those two elements are present everything is magical and we are blessed with the light and energy of the universe. That's when the real fun and passion can be experienced.
A: I have a deep respect for the operation and staff at City Girls. As a club of independent escorts, they are by far the most professional group in existence today. For years we have exchanged references. I once commented that I admired the way they worked and they responded by offering me membership in their club. I hope to contribute to them with the experience I have gained over the years and know that I will benefit as well. I love that as an independent provider, City Girls compliments my efforts. We are both very organized in our business approach. I will work hard to introduce them to many new markets and I know they will do the same for me. I also hope to work with some of the other beautiful City Girls club members providing special sessions whenever our schedules overlap. It’s great to be able to offer variety. I also want to turn my large list of friends to City Girls because I am not able to be everywhere at the same time. I care about my friends and if I can introduce them to other independent escorts through City Girls I will sleep well knowing they will be safe in caring hands.
Q: What advice can you give to folks entering into the adult entertainment world today?
Whether you want to become an indepdent escort or an adult actress it is a career choice that can be exhilarating, exciting, and rewarding. You will only get out of it what you invest. Above all, you have to understand why you want to do it and must commit with heart and soul. Working in the adult industry is not something that you can fake. Either you love it or you don’t do it. Treat everyone the way you want to be treated and always play safe. Always.
