Natassia Dreams Interview

The very first time I saw Natassia Dreams perform I was in awe. She has a command that can’t be denied and it goes much further than porn. From mainstream modeling, to transsexual advocacy awareness, Natassia has left her mark and built up a name and brand that’s recognizable across various platforms. I couldn’t think of a better person to talk to, especially during Pride month, and my only regret is that we couldn’t stay on the phone longer. Learn about her influence in front of and behind the camera, life after gender affirmation surgery, balancing work worlds, and much more in this interview.

Please Note: This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Adult Empire: What have you been up to? What are you doing?

Natassia Dreams: Since surgery, I’ve been focusing on like directing. I want to bring a different I transgender porn to our industry. So thank God that Evil Angel has given me the opportunity to have that platform and I’ve been directing for them and I’ve been loving that. Giving back, sharing my experience and helping younger girls by directing and giving a different perspective that’s not always a male perspective. Sometimes, you know, the system wants us to have sex a certain way, but people want to see us having sex in ways that are more sensual and more passionate and more organic. And I want to bring that with also a bit of fashion, which is what I’ve been trying to do. I want to glamour it up like, hi glamour, we’re bringing great lighting, great location, great outfits and great quality. That is what I want to bring.

How do you bring high fashion to set and combine it with your experience in the industry? 

I usually pick clothes from my personal wardrobe that are very glamour and personal. So I’m bringing my own personal style and of course collaborating with the models to elevate them in a way that makes them comfortable while putting them in things that they’ve never been in before that pushes the envelope but is also ultimately high glamour. That’s how I bring fashion and my experience from 20 plus years in the industry and knowing what looks good and what people want to see to the screen. But I also put a twist on it, a feminine edge to it, you know, a more glamorous edge to it instead of making it so raunchy and hardcore and trying to get us away from that narrative and stereotype.

How do you keep all of that in mind when casting?

I try to look for, you know, black or brown talent that is not really featured in mainstream production, and I like to elevate them and give them a platform and give them an opportunity to work for a big company, which, you know, a lot of people hesitant to do because it’s more hardcore side.

What have you been able to bring from your experience in front of the camera to directing and producing?

That’s my favorite part! Being fashion model and being in adult work for so many years, I have so much experience posing, and I know, like what looks good in a second. I’ve been in front of the camera for many years, I’ve been in practice for many years, and I took a lot of that experience and applied it to my scenes.  I have the vision of what looks good in my head and the pose and everything that I want, and if I can explain that I can demonstrate it and the person can see it and get the shots that I want.

When you started your career did you think that you would be behind the camera at all?

I was directing before I had surgeries. I mean, I started directing myself years ago so it was like a routine at this point. I knew everything that I had to do and what angles they wanted and everything. So that kind of helped me to, and I just watched. I’m like a human sponge actually, I love knowledge, and I love to learn things, so I would be onset just soaking everything up. I actually got a contract with Evil Angel to direct and star in some scenes before I had surgery. I decided, I would do three before I had surgery, and three after I’d had surgery, and I just took it like that. It became so easy for me, and it’s fun, and I’m still giving back and I feel good about it.

What are some things you’ve learned about yourself through your career and transition?

I learned that I have a really great sense of style. I learned that I have a good eye for angles and outfits and poses, and through transitioning my sexuality opened up a lot more because I was more comfortable in my skin. I’m willing to explore other things that I probably didn’t before I had surgery. I learned to take all those sets and all those experiences, good and bad, and apply them to having a better work environment and giving back to my community. I feel really good about that.

What do you want people to take away from your work?

I want them to enjoy real trans sex and I want the industry to elect for more trans directors. most of the big companies, they’re run by white older men, and the stories reflect that. Hopefully people can see that, you know, trans people can direct and create a great project and a great work environment and promote that to the other companies.

Are you into sports at all? What’s your opinion on trans women in sports?

I’m really trying not to get involved. I did participate in like mixed martial arts before and these cisgender women who had no idea I was trans were kicking my ass. So I don’t believe that there’s an unfair advantage just based off my personal experience, and I think there’s a lot of other things that we should be worrying about as a country and as a community.

How have you seen the industry change and evolve since you entered?

Its gotten a lot better with like names and titles of some of the movies. A lot of them used derogatory terms, and we fought really hard to get them removed from a lot of popular sites, which was very disheartening, knowing that you know, these are derogatory term and some companies are still using them. I do see a lot of trans and cisgender performers working together openly. I know, it’s a lot of fetishization, a lot of capitalism because we’re a top genre right now, but it’s still a step in the right direction.

What impact or changes have you been able to make while still being mainstream?

Because I do have a good reputation and representation in the industry people listen to what I have to say, so hopefully, you know, being open as I always have been and being transparent will keep the work spreading and keep people’s ears open.

What advice do you give to trans women who want to get into adult film making?

Well, I have my trans girls, young girls that are coming out, and I just tell them to know your worth. Don’t do anything that you don’t want to do. This is your brand. So when you’re out in public watch what you do and how you move, because everybody’s watching, especially if you’re black. I try to pass my experience on to the next generation because I learned the hard way.

How do you balance worlds between mainstream and adult entertainment?

And at first I was keeping it very separate and it was really taxing because I had two different personas that I had to fill and fit into. But then, like a couple of years back, I did an interview and magazine cover and I came out with everything from like who I was as an adult performer, as a model in New York nightlife, you know, back in the days, and all those people didn’t really read it that much into it. They just saw the pictures on the cover of the magazine and it was liberating.

How do you keep a positive mindset when it seems like everywhere you turn doors are getting slammed in your face?

I take pride in the fact that I’m a creator creating content that people can relate to because there’s power in that. I’m happy for everybody because the time comes for everybody. But ultimately I know who I am so if an opportunity is taken away I know my worth and I know that another one will come. Just surround yourself with positive people you trust, put in the work, and good things will follow.

So what’s in the future for Natassia Dreams?

I want to do more representation for post-op trans women. I want another big project productions company that showcases cis gendered women to throw me in the mix more and make it more acceptable. I’d also like big companies to invite me to direct because we need a change of direction in voice and vision. I want to push myself to the limit at this point, you know, I want something that’s going to challenge me mentally, physically.

What’s your limit? What does that look like?

I don’t know what it looks like but I’m willing to explore that on camera. I love to have these experiences on camera, because then I can always relive it with everybody else.

Do you have a preference when it comes to independently creating or working with major studios?

I like both. It is easier with a studio behind you, but I’m also at a point in my career as well that I’ve made like so many studios so much money, right, so now I’m a little greedy and I want my share.

Can you see yourself in politics?

I don’t know if they will put me in politics, but I think I would be good because I know I can fight for what’s right. I’d like to fight for what’s right.

Are you doing anything for Pride this year?

Probably not. I’ve been there and done that and it’s kinda like what’s the point? I’m at a time in my life right now where I’m all about impacting change for our communities and that goes way beyond a party and a parade.

What music are you listening to right now?

I saw a little of the beef with Kenrick and Drake, and I like Chris Brown, but I listen to a lot of old school too like Anita Baker and Michael Jackson. I like Summer Walker and Bryson Tiller a lot also. Of course Beyonce!

I had so much fun speaking with you! Thank you so much!

Yes, omg, thank you!
