Describe yourself briefly growing up?

Opal Essex: I was always an artsy kid, I like drawing and painting and just making things. I also played a bunch of different sports but I was never serious about any of them. Kind of the nerdy slacker in high school, if that makes sense.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

Which pornstar would you most like to work with?

Opal Essex: Goth Charlotte is such a badass I’d love to work with her.

What would you change about the adult industry?

Have you ever been grossed out during a shoot?

Opal Essex: Yes I have, but I just focused on what I needed to do for the shoot and just suppressed the “ew”.

Opal Essex: A lot! I wanna do a MMF threesome and get into kinkier scenes.

Has the stigma around the adult industry affected you?

If you directed a scene what would it be about and who would feature?

Opal Essex: That’s a tough one… Honestly I’d want to do something fun like a “unicorn ambush”. Cute naive girl gives into her curiosity to be with a couple and they catch her by surprise and dominate her. I think it’d be fun to do that with a porn couple like H3LL4SL00TS and Babysid or Rich Rodney and Alexa Addams.
