JJ: Welcome to Inside the Porn. You're our first Australian so we are excited.
So tell us how you got into the industry?
Vivienne: I have always been very interested in sexploration. When the opportunity to be a sex worker presented itself whilst I was studying at university, I dived straight in and never looked back. This industry is so amazing; the people you meet are incredible. It’s not all glitz and glam though, there is a lot of hard work and long hours you have to put in to be successful, safe and happy.
JJ: Well sounds like you're someone who follows her heart as well as her head.
What's the best thing about the industry?
Vivienne: This may sound a little corny but I do believe the best thing I have experienced in this industry is the freedom to grow and change into the person you want to be. There are so many people you come intocontact with that you never would have by not being apart of the industry.
Every time you meet a new person you change and adapt a little; you learn new skills and gain more knowledge both in and out of the bedroom that will resonate with you for a lifetime.
JJ: That's possibly my favourite answer to that question in over 50+ interviews that I've done.
What's been the worst thing about the industry?
Vivienne: The negative stigma others attach to people who choose to work in this industry. We are people, and as people we want the freedom to pave our own path.
Stigma against sex workers can be very harmful both to the individual and to our community as a whole. It affects our safety and ability to obtain help if we need it. Stigma impedes much needed legislative change. In Australia we need a lot of our state laws corrected so workers nation wide can be treated with the general human rights we deserve.
JJ: I couldn't agree more. I think you've got your finger on the pulse of the issues.
What's the funniest thing to happen to you whilst working?
Vivienne: I was trying to be incredibly sexy with a hot massage oil candle. I got a bit carried away in the moment and forgot I had put it down near a pillow… the bed caught fire. No clients were hurt in the making of this heated situation, however the pillow did not survive.
JJ: Hahaha that's brilliant. I know you're hot stuff but that's a whole different level.
What are you doing at the moment work wise?
Vivienne: I have a few projects on the go at the moment. I am about to launch a mentoring/consultancy business soon for men and women who wish to escort but are not sure where to start. Stay tuned… its going to be amazing!
JJ: Well I am definitely going to be following the progress with that eagerly.
Where can people find you online?
Vivienne: If you would like to learn more about my services and me please go to www.vivienneblackvip.com and I'm also on Twitter @vivienneescort
JJ: I'm sure after reading this interview people will be going to check your site out.
What's the best thing about sex?
Vivienne: Sharing it with another person... hehe
JJ: Share it anytime you want with me haha.
What really turns you on?
Vivienne: Naughty, witty and flirtatious conversation.Watching hot girls kiss each other. Receiving a full body, oiled up massage that eventually leads to lips on my... Haha
JJ: It suddenly has just gotten very warm in here. I can't imagine why.
What's your favourite holiday destination?
Vivienne: That’s a tough question to answer for me, as I love to travel. I am long over due for a holiday though. My favorite City is Paris; favorite country is Peru, favorite place to rest… my bed.
JJ: Well I think it's time you came and visited England for sure.
Tell me one thing about yourself that I wouldn't know just by looking at you?
Vivienne: I studied Geology and Archeology at university; and worked in Iceland & New Zealand climbing volcanoes. I think I naturally gravitate to huge things that explode or erupt.
JJ: hahaha I'm sure you're no stranger to things erupting around you. You can definitely tell you're as intelligent as you are beautiful.
What's been your biggest achievement in life or work?
Vivienne: The most recent would be coming out as a worker and appearing on the Cover this month for Penthouse Australian Black Label Magazine.
JJ: Well that is a massive achievement and something that is very much deserved.
What's been the most challenging thing you've had to overcome?
Vivienne: I did experience extreme altitude sickness and the flu during the Inca Trail hike. I honestly thought I was going to die. I have never been more fever delirious. I took me 14 hours to get from one camp to the next. It only took everyone else about 8 hours to walk the same distance. I basically crawled and refused to be carried. I can be stubborn at times.
JJ: Wow! That is some incredible resolve you have. You just keep getting more and more impressive. Marry me?? Haha.
Finally, what's the weirdest rumour you've heard about yourself?
Vivienne: That I am an escort. Oh wait, I am!! Haha
JJ: I love it. Thank you so much for being with us today. You're an incredible woman. Very complex with so much about you to make me sit here and talk to you for the next year constantly haha. I hope you have a great 2016 and good luck with the new consultancy business.
