November's Girl of the Month, Nosh!
Noshinima Midas is the Golden Girl of SLC, literally!!!! When Kay met her, she was really into the color gold. I did a series of photos with her and Temp a few months ago in our magazine. Nosh is funny, sexy, and her photography is quickly becoming well known in the porn community. See her Flickr link at the end of this page and enjoy her interview with me here...
Naught- Hi Nosh, welcome to SLC!
Nosh - Thank you for having me. I do enjoy it here.
Naught- How did you find out about Second Life?
Nosh- If I can remember it correct, I heard of Second Life a long time before signing up. I had heard that people can make money using this virtual world, but I didn't think I had the brains for it. One day I was checking out a few pornographic sites until I came across an ad showing scenes of a place called Red Light Center. I was curious if I could have sex in this virtual world so I decided to check it out. Let's just say that the less said about RLC, the better. Boy was it awful. It caused me to think about Second Life again to see if I can have sex here. Once I discovered that I can, I said "Goodbye RLC!"
Naught-What did you do in SL in those early days?
Nosh- I was a bit naive to everything at first but I did love having sex with random strangers, even if looking back at it now, it wasn't as good as I thought it was as most guys here can even emote, let alone paragraph roleplay. I also use to dance at clubs here and there for some extra money, but I was disillusioned with how long it took for me to make a single Linden so I didn't dance too much.
Naught-How did you get started in SL porn?
Nosh- As far as sex in Second Life goes; ever since I signed up. When I first started uploading my stuff on The Sexiest, that's when I discovered all the machinima porn movies made by the pornies of the group. I have only been in 2 so far, but I'm looking forward to participating in more.
Naught- What made you start doing photography here?
Nosh- I was curious about how all the avatars had amazing images of themselves. I was going to get a series of images done of me but that is where I made a mistake. I entrusted a photographer to take pictures of my newly updated mesh avatar. Instead, he kept giving me the runaround, told me to get this and that for my avatar (making my avi even more expensive than it already was) and through it all, he went on a trip overseas without informing me. When he came back, he told me he had an hour to do my shoot. When I arrived, he told me he had forgotten what we agreed to do for my shoot and claimed that there was something wrong with my dress as it was making my avatar appear as a purple silhouette (the problem was his settings, he kept trying to pass it off as an issue with me and my dress). He wasted all that time just talking, eventually telling me that he had to log off because his time was up. I was so fed up with him by that point that it pushed me to blocking him and doing photography myself. When I discovered that I did indeed have my own talent at SL photography, I moved onto practicing with SL porn and the rest is history.
Naught- Aside from the porn photo you do, what else do you enjoy taking pictures on the grid?
Nosh- I have enjoyed being more "artsy" with my images. I wouldn't really consider it my style, but I've been praised when I actually do more artistic looking photography work. They always seem to be the most popular images on my Flickr.
Naught- Do you think you've changed much here since you started, aside from your avatar?
Nosh- I actually have. I realized a talent that I never knew I had. And while I've made a few enemies even within the SL porn community (it's usually them that start it with me), I have made a lot more friends, moreso than at any point during my time in Second Life.
Naught- What are your favorite sims to visit?
Nosh- I would have to say Frank's would be the best place to go with a date. Everybody knows about Frank's. There's also oRgAsMs and The Fuck Spot if I ever wanted to have some random fun. I use to also frequent Bukkake Bliss and Orgy Island (if anyone can remember those two adult places), but they no longer exist, mostly because the owners are huge assholes that could not entertain the idea of selling their sims instead of closing them.
Naught-What has been the highlight of your porn career so far?
Nosh- Hehe. Your wife Kay might remember this, but I would have to say that it was when I did my seventh installment of my Dare to Compare series, the one that I did for an Ass Monday. It's a series of videos where I try to copy the group image style of the famous Partee Mytili. As of today, it currently has over 200 faves on Flickr, my most successful image so far.
Naught-What else do you do in sl, aside from your porn work and photography, any other sl hobbies?
Nosh- He he... well I use to have a lot of SL sex here back in the day, but sadly, I had become disillusioned with just how many people here cannot paragraph roleplay. Besides that, I pretty much just enjoy chatting with friends and going to parties.
Naught- What, or who, has been the biggest influence on your development in porn?
Nosh- I guess it's a combination of things, but this might surprise you. I'm often motivated by jealously and resentment towards certain people. I've been told that drama happens within our community and often, that drama causes me to want to make even more pictures, mostly in an attempt to prove that I am better than the person I fought with. I do have my positive influences however. My two favorite pornies are PJ Thornton and and Dokielicious Doobie. I absolutely love their work and I constantly think of ways on doing images that are inspired by them. Perhaps my biggest influence is the world famous Tatiana Easterwood (she's the first SL porn personality that I discovered, before I even got into the scene). I would like to be considered as the best SL porn photographer of all time and to me that means creating images that are better than hers. Yep, I know that's going to be a giant mountain to climb.
Naught-Have you got any big pieces of work lined up at the moment? If so can you tell us what's involved?
Nosh- I have a few images done that will be coming in the next few days. I unload my images once a day so I'm constantly working on new projects. In one of my future projects, I'll be going back to the beach, while in another project, I'm on vacation in Europe. Those are subtle hints as to whats in store.
Naught-Is there anything you haven't achieved yet that you'd really like to do?
Nosh- Be considered as the best SL photographer of all time, and have fun doing it. ;)
Naught- Thanks for coming to visit the office Nosh, we really enjoy having you here as a part of the SLC family!
Nosh- You're very welcome hun. I try. Hehe. ;)
