The Royal Peek: Melyssa Ford
Even after the sexy Scorpio bared all in our 50th Issue, Ford still has things to get off her lovely chest. Topics on her expanded portfolio, the new era of video girls who still idolize her and why she's still single, are par for the course. Yet, her waxing poetic about how porn is part of her life is what we find rather stimulating. Yeah, you read that right.
While reaching you, via Blackberry Messenger, to schedule this interview your status read "Busy Watching Porn." Um, please explain. Do you really indulge in porn?
[Laughs] I definitely do. I don't really have a particular genre of porn and I'm not really a fetishist. Sometimes I want to see if there are some tricks to expand my sexual repertoire. It's not like I started watching it yesterday. Boyfriends are like, "let's watch some porn!" Rather than being disgusted by it, I'd say, "sure, let's watch it."
Our kind of girl!
What I found was that it improved my technique. Porn made me less inhibited in the bedroom and more open to try new things. Women should get comfortable watching porn and not take offense to it. If your man is leaving your bedroom to go watch porn, you have an issue. If a couple uses it to watch and enhance their bedroom activities, I see nothing wrong with that at all. There have been times that I have even suggested it.
So, who's watching porn with you right now?
There's no one at that level right now. I'm still on some, "pick me up at 7:30PM for dinner and drop me off before midnight."
Well, according to the gossip blogs you have a whole bunch of porn buddies
I'd have no career and a mattress strapped to my back if I slept with all the people the blogs have linked me too. It's ridiculous. I've read about people that I've been with that I have never even met before. One great story was about me and Raekwon.
Even caramel sundaes is getting touched, and scooped in my ice cream truck. Sorry, couldn't resist.
[Laughs] He supposedly came to a photo shoot that I was doing and we had eyes for each other. We left in his drop top Phantom and were "canoodling" all over LA.
Who uses the word canoodling in 2010?
First of all, I don't "canoodle." Secondly, I had never met Raekwon in my life to that point. And third, that photo shoot did exist but he wasn't there. I drove myself there and back home. I was nowhere near anyone's drop top Phantom. I don't think I've even been in one.
What do you think of this new age of fame-seeking women, notably Kat Stacks and Montana Fishburne, who have no boundaries?
I'm not in the business of giving my personal opinion on somebody, especially if I don't know them. But I will say this; I think the most addictive drug is the one that has no cure. It's fame. I think too many are bitten by the fame bug and will do anything to maintain relevance. You begin to sell your soul. That's not what I would do. If it floats your boat, then knock yourself out. I'm too busy with myself and my own career to worry about what somebody else is doing. I also think that when it comes to visibility you have choices. You can have it two ways, for your own self-serving purposes or you can use it to draw attention to worthwhile causes. I try to do the latter as much as I possibly can.
