serious about seduction
Interview by Naught Windstorm (NW and NS), photographs by Kay Windstorm
This month we are very fortunate to see the return to SLC of Nadja Sunflower. Nadja has modelled for SL Confidential on a previous occasion and that work can now be found in the SLC Archive section. Back then Nadja was sporting a different, long dark haired look – this time she’s gone shorter, and blond but oh boy are those curves all still in the right places! Enough of the formalities, on with the interview…
NW: Hi Nadja, good to see you again! Let’s get straight down to business and into the interview. How did you find out about SL in the first place?
NS: Hi Naught! Hmm, well it was back in ’05 when I first hit ‘newb’ island. Someone I’d met in EQ2 and gotten close to, brought me here for sexy times – lol! Since the closest you could get in an MMO was standing your avatars next to each other while emoting in IM’s.
NW: What did you do in SL in those early days?
NS: Well, I’d tried half heartedly to get into building. But soon found a few fantasy RP Sims, and that consumed my time for the next couple years. Then I found Gor, and that consumed another 6 or so years.
NW: How did you get started in SL porn?
NS: I’d noticed the group SL Porn in the groups of a girl I worked with when I was stripping / escorting. Looked it up, followed the link to Miss Emily’s blog, Started reading her advice / tips for new people. I went to a few parties there, met a few people, some of whom took a few ‘ intro ‘ shots of me.
NW: What has been the highlight of your porn career so far?
NS: Well, not many highlights, as I guess you could still pretty much qualify me as new. Though seeing how some people shoot me has been really cool. Ellen Saint did some nice proof shots I guess you could call them. My body and look has changed so much since those shots though. It was really cool to see how she used shadow in those pictures.
NW: What kind of shoots are you busy doing at the moment Nadja? Apart from this one of course 🙂
NS: Well, I’m doing an add for a bikini a friend of mine just came out with. she’s starting her own shop, and since I modeled the Belleza – Isis version, was putting together an ad shot for her. Then I just completed and put out my Manchester City United piece. I wanted that out earlier but took a bit longer editing the fine details. Lastly, I’m in the process of editing a Memorial Day one I hope I can make come out. As it combines an RL pic, with an SL pose. it will be really challenging to fold in seamless. But if I can, it should look pretty amazing.
NW: Sounds like you have a busy schedule there Nadja.
NS: Almost a day doesn’t go by when I don’t get ‘ inspired ‘ for some kind of photo. hehe
NW: What else do you do in SL, aside from your porn work, any other SL hobbies?
NS: I guess you could say I’m in between things at the moment, lol 🙂 Mostly just working on SL photography and teaching myself photo shop at the moment. Though I like to assemble avatars or avatar looks that go beyond human.
NW: What has been the biggest influence on your development as a porn star?
NS: Well, the biggest influence has just been in the overall increase in the quality of my avatar’s appearance, If I had to single out any single thing. I’ve improved by leaps and bounds since first coming to porn. That moment when you think you look good, then you see women like Brea, Party, Pretty, Kat, and a whole host of others on Flickr, and realizing that I need to step it up a few notches to even come close.
NW: Have you got any big pieces of work lined up at the moment? If so can you tell us what’s involved?
NS: Nothing at the moment, mostly diving into photo shop so I can basically start doing self promotion. I’m a patient person, but I refuse to chase someone down to shoot me, or to shoot them. At some point a form of professionalism needs to be evident. If your interested in either, then an appointment should be made, if you can’t do so, then I just interpret that as blowing me off, which has happened a few times already. In which case I just move on to the next project.
NW: What about the future though, have you got anything exciting lined up that you’re hungry to get going on?
NS: Not really, I don’t plan the future too much. It’s pretty much day to day. It’s cliché, but the ” past is gone, the present is now, and the future isn’t guaranteed”.
NW: What kind of erotic shoots have you not done yet but would love to try out?
NS: There’s probably a few I’ve not done yet. Though the only one that really comes to mind is a really good BDSM shoot, I think one of those would be really nice to do. I’m sure the readers wouldn’t complain too much either. I’m pretty open when it comes to shoots, the biggest thing I love to see is how the photographers’ creativity and camera capture me in the moment.
NW: Is there anything you haven’t achieved yet that you’d really like to do?
NS: Well, probably what everyone’s end goal would be, to appear in a movie. To become more known I guess, and to constantly better myself, my avatar, and now my photography.

P.s. We invited Nadja to stick around after the interview, and things got kind of interesting. This is just a taste of the “After shoot delight” page which comes straight after this one 🙂
