Francesca Felucci: I would not start again the same way I did.
She started as a fashion model,model for sportwear and swimsuite, later as a porno-model, today one of the most interesting erotic and a fetish models. Francesca Felucci talked to us about the essential.
ART: Hi! How you came in model and porno and business? Tell in more detail. Whether it is comfortable to you in it?
Francesca Felucci: I have been doing modeling from my early age. Most likely fashion, swim-wear. I worked as a shop manager (clothes, shoes). There was not much free time for me and it was not paid well. I was fed up, bought a newspaper and looked for a fulltime job. I saw an ad and went to a casting. I was told if I wanted to have a full time job i would have to start with porn. I walked away and didn’t even think about that. Anyhow, I just quit my job and I needed money. So I went back there the next day and from that day on I worked almost every day for the biggest porn productions from U.S.Tand Europe.
ART: The period of yours often participations in a porno is a more business or for pleasure?
Francesca Felucci: The best thing is getting paid for something you like to do. I most of the time did enjoy my work. This is very important for me because i am a very sensitive person and if I did not enjoy it i could not have done it for such a long time.
ART: Tell in more detail about projects with the photographer of Karl Louis?
Francesca Felucci: I met Karl Louis a long time ago and started to cooperate with him because I liked his work.
I am glad I had the privilege to get to know him and to work with him. I like his natural kind of photography and not the overdone «plastic look». I want people to recognize me when they meet me personally and it works. For now they always say that I look even better in reality :-)
ART: What now at you drafts of movies in process? What prepares for an exit?
Francesca Felucci: Well, I can’t say all what I’m working on but I guess a very special project for me are my short clips called «Dangerous Games». These clips reflect what I really like and what is in my head. They are very stylish and erotic with fetish elements (latex, stockings, feet.. ). An important fact is also the reality of this movies, feelings, excitements of situations. I also like variety and look always different. I like to play games and especially when they are dangerous.
ART: How the porno influences process of your formation and communication with the world? You become more vulnerable or not? Can be stronger?
Francesca Felucci: It can sometimes be difficult and not everybody can do this kind of work. You must be willing to adapt to different situations and challenges.
ART: Your profession eradicated in you physiological complexes? You were engaged publicly in sex in DrunkSexOrgy.com, what it for you?
Francesca Felucci: Anything you do has an influence on your mind and spirit. I’m a sensual person and like to speak to myself sometimes to help me when I have doubts. First you must really understand what you do and why and then you can be fine with yourself. I don’t push people to like me or respect me. Some people do respect me/my work and take me as a big star and some people don’t understand how i can do it. Everyone is different.
I am glad I didn’t use any drugs in my work because that would definitely damage my life. I also did not need to drink alcohol though. I like a glass of wine or some cocktail once in a while.
ART: You had a lot of cooperation with porno-studios what were remembered most of all?
Francesca Felucci: Well, I like style and in the porn business you hardly see style. That was one of the reasons why I finished 6 years ago to cooperate with all porn productions and started my own production. In a way I am glad that I had the possibility to work with the biggest stars in the business, e.g. Rocco Sifreddi, Dorcel and other famous american productions companies, but still I prefer to do my own movies because only there I can be much more myself. These movies are made as i want it. I have a book where I write a storyboard and then try to do the movie. When I have the movie in my head I take my notebook and write it quickly down so i don`t forget all the details i was thinking about.
ART: Partners on shootings you interest purely functionally or how men too?
Francesca Felucci: I can work with almost anybody but this is not the point. I always liked to know who will be my partner so I could get ready for him in my mind too. When i didn’t know the actor I checked him out before we met. Sometimes you are more and sometimes less connected to the partner. We are not machines. When I didn’t find some actor sexually attractive I was just simply more concentrating about myself, sex itself.
ART: Tell about shootings with Rocco, what it was for you experience?
Francesca Felucci: Oh yes, Rocco… well, that was my first scene and definitely good school :-) It was a very hard and long shooting without any break. After this scene i became very popular because they say no other woman would have survived it — lol. A lot of women would simply stop the scene right at the beginning but I didn’t. Other girls who worked in this business stoped the scene when something hurt them … I guess this is why I got always called for the hardest scenes.
ART: Your relations with the Internet, what you take in networks and what you give there?
Francesca Felucci: My website www.francesca-felucci.com. I also use facebook, google+, tumblr. I never give my movies or pics away free. It is too good. So on all these platforms you can show just some little previews of what you do but for the real stuff you have to visit my website and join. I do a live show for my members, where they can also communicate with me while they see me. I have some members who I am talking to at facebook. I add anyone but don’t chat with everyone. My schedule is too busy and I have a feeling that everyone expects everything to be free and this is unfortunately not the case. I believe all people should get paid for their job no matter what kind.

ART: Tell about the relations with fans, don’t exasperate?
Francesca Felucci: A fan is for me a person who adores me/my work, who likes me and wants just the best for me. A fan is someone who i expect to be my member to get closer to me and support me. People who are not and say they are my fans I don’t take serious. With the real fans who are my members I have a very nice relationship. They talk to my at my site when i do the live show for them. They know how much I give them. I appreciate them as well, I know they understand me, they know how much i have to put into my work. I believe they feel me/my personality in my movies. We are just like friends and speak about sex but also about life and personal things. Facebook is for me place where people most likely look for free stuff or talk. It is funny to read that someone is my biggest fan and is not even my member. For these people I have no time because they just bla bla and take my time away. I prefer giving this time to someone who is really a fan and really cares.
ART: Today more porno or an art sensuality is more interesting to you?
Francesca Felucci: Look, first what is porn? For someone is porn when u see naked body, for someone titts .. If there is sex involved you can call it porn but not all porn is the same. I like stylish porn but still real sex and I must have a feeling like nobody puts anybody down otherwise it is a movie about slavery. When you say porn I imagine classic porn with no style, the camera is not good, light and make up bad and as we call it «in and out» but this is not what i like. I did it and i will not do it anymore. I like high level and artistic things. Art is something you see but also feel. It can be anything which has special power, feelings… that’s how I like it.
ART: What you see at yourself ahead today?
Francesca Felucci: As everyone in life, one day you get to the point when you say: this I would not do and this i would do different. I would not start again the same way I did. I would be more careful who I work with. I would do only what i really like as I do it now. There are many things I can do and I am sure it would bring me more money but it would not be what I like, so I much rather do something I like no matter if this brings less money.anyhow,will be nice to see you at my website !
