The Valuable Valya
How did you become interested in fetish/BDSM?
I don't know how, but I know when. I was about five years old when I start fantasizing what I now realize were BDSM/kink fantasies. When speaking with people about their fetishes and kinks, it seems like a lot of folks experienced their fetishistic thoughts at a very young age. Perhaps it is something that is innate for some people.
Do you enjoy fetishism/BDSM play in your personal life, and if so what are you into?
Yes I do! And it's a secret ;)
In my modeling life, my job is to reflect the fetish that the photographer/producer/personal client wants, so I try and keep the two separate.
Are there any fetishes that you don't find appealing?
Anything that is potentially physically or emotionally harmful to oneself or another. Everything else, if I am not turned on by it, I am always at least interested in learning more about it. I love learning about kinks I have never heard about before, it is amazing how much of seemingly "innocent" behaviors and objects are erotic for people. Did you know sneezing could be a fetish? I love it!
What excites you about fetish modeling?
To me it's fascinating exploring the different faces of fetishism. A true fetish is something that one must need in order to feel sexually gratified, and the thought that I'm providing that through a modeling or acting gig is very exciting.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I love beautiful European lingerie that mixes elements of BDSM wear into it, like Kiki de Montparnasse and Agent Provocateur. I also love classic black heels and garter stockings. Want my amazon wish list URL?? lol
What are your least favorites?
I can't seem to pull off PVC and Latex!
Do you think pinup and fetish are becoming part of the mainstream culture?
As with everything else, what is fashionable comes and goes, but the real spirit of it remains and will remain with the people that breathe it's authentic air long after the fashion is gone.
What kind of music do you like?
Honestly, I like it all if it is quality, from classical to rap. My personal hero however is Bjork.
What do you like to do for fun?
When I am not modeling, I pass my time writing and doing my own photography. To unwind, I like to to open up a bottle of red and cook dinner for friends. Food, mmm, now that's erotic!
