The Sword: A lot of people know you from your charity work with The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as well as co-hosting The Tim & Roma Show. But truth is you have–gasp!–a day job, right?
Sister Roma: I’m the Art Director for Hot House Entertainment. So basically I look at images of hot men having sex all day. Good work – if you can get it!
How did you get started in the adult industry?
Through my friendships with Mike Youens, Chi Chi LaRue and [Hot House founder] Steven Scarborough. Steven hired me as a freelance designer and brought me on full-time about 6 years ago.
Does looking at porn all day de-sensitize you to it?
Hell no! Porn is HOT! And I’m just freaky enough to get off watching it-even if some of the stars are my friends!
I don’t want to get you into trouble, but what porn do you look at when you’re not at Hot House?
I love straight porn. I have been known to watch Anabolic, old Chasey Lane movies, and my all-time favorite Julian! I also like watching sketchy online amateur videos of skinny hung guys with a webcam and too much time on their hands!
What frustrates you about this industry?
I’d love to magically remove the stigma associated with porn and the adult industry. Porn is healthy. It’s good for you goddamn it!
What keeps you working in it?
Easy. I love the adult industry because of the people! We’re a creative, passionate, colorful, crazy group. And we have a lot of fun!
What are some occupational hazards from working in this industry they don’t tell you about beforehand?
Lube spills, projectile butt-plugs, drive-by cumshots… You know, the usual.
If someone wanted to do your job (OK, not *your* job, but similar), what advice would you give them? Like, what classes should a perspective pornographer take?
I would suggest they spend most of their time cruising the locker room and the restrooms at the library: college library restrooms are notorious!
Five years hosting The Tim & Roma Show, you’ve interviewed a hell of a lot more people than I have, so … what question should I be asking you that I’m not?
What about, “We all know you’re a size queen Roma-but seriously, isn’t there a point when a cock can just be too big?”
And your answer?
Interview with Roma by Jack Shamama
It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
