Adult film star Mercedes Carrera continues to break down stereotypes about sex workers in a profile in The Daily Caller, the news and opinion website that has been called the conservative answer to The Huffington Post.
In the piece, the outspoken Carrera emphasizes her own independence and belief in personal responsibility.
“We all get to make the choice every single day about who we want to be,” Carrera told The Caller. “Lots of things have happened in my life and I could tell you victim stories for days — but that’s not happening right now. Right now I’m safe and happy and life is good. I have a job that is entertaining and fulfilling so I choose to wake up and say ‘this is the royal flush that I’ve given myself.”
The profile also noted Carrera’s recent “intensely angry, but nonetheless heartfelt video” in which she called out feminists for their indifference to the January rape and assault of adult entertainer Cytherea. The subsequent attention brought to a fundraiser in benefit of Cytherea caused donations to triple almost overnight, led by donors from Carrera’s fan base in the worlds of adult and gaming.”This is why I’m so pissed at modern feminists,” Carrera said in the video. “They claim to care about women, but when there are actually women in need, radio fucking silence.”The Caller article also plugs The Porn Charity, which “bleeding heart Libertarian” Carrera founded in partnership with The Fine Young Capitalists (a group that works with under-represented groups in STEM). The Porn Charity raised $11,280 earlier this year to help fund STEM scholarships North America.
Carrera’s adult movie career continues to move in high gear: Tuesday brought a solo scene for Club Sandy in which Mercedes starts at a desk writing a kinky message, and breaks down into showing just what an empowered woman can do with a sex toy.
On Saturday, Mercedes can be seen in El Pelon de Brazzers II alongside Bridgette B, Isabella De Santos and Nikki Delano for Pornstars Like It Big. The latest version of the popular seriess features Johnny Sins being worked over in a gym by the bevy of beauties.
Also this week Mercedes is featured in Latin Adultery vol 28, from Naughty America.
