Welcome to this week’s Artist Spotlight, bringing the community together by delving into our Artists’ most inspiring ideas and practices, as well as a few of their favorite things. This week we are diving in with Worship An Li. But you can call her Daddy.
What are some of your favorite aspects of being an Artist?
DAL: My favorite part of being an Artist is having full control of my creative output. I can pretty much put any fun kinky idea I have into action and then be paid for it in more ways than one. Doing clips has been a great supplement to my work as a ProDomme since it gives viewers an idea of who I am, what I’m like, and what I’m capable of. Sometimes I liken my clip repertoire to an online portfolio of my many skills as a Dominatrix.
How would you describe your style as a clip producer and Artist?
DAL: My most common personality type would probably be as a playful sadist. I make a lot of jokes and have a great laugh and smile, and my viewers most often report on how much fun I seem to be having when I play.
What is the most memorable or noteworthy moment of being an Artist?
DAL: Hm. This is a tough one. I’d have to say that it would have to be when one of my good friends was on a jerk off bender and accidentally came across my clips online…
What are your favorite categories (fetish, JOI, roleplay, humiliation, etc) to perform in and why?
DAL: I really love bondage, CBT/ballbusting, caning, toilet fantasy, and heavy humiliation. They’re all things I naturally excel at and I could talk about all these topics endlessly. I’m naturally more on the extreme side and have always gravitated towards heavier interests. My true sadist really shines in these categories, and viewers can tell. It’s like a pregnant lady glow, except for sadism. 😉
Please describe your ideal sub and what this person could do to impress you.
DAL: My ideal sub is someone with endless, single-minded devotion (whether or not I am in Mistress mode or not) who is able to figure out my requests without having me to guide them every single step of the way. I like being able to tell someone what to do without creating an instruction manual for them, because Google exists and they should know how to use it. When courting me as a sub, I expect tributes in the form of presents or cold hard cash as a thank you for my time and/or consideration. And on the more logistical side, all of my personal subs have been financially independent enough to support me in one way or another, be it through vacations or through buying me enough toilet paper to last a year (lol). A good sub should be intelligent, capable of putting the time in, and expect to spend some money to please me – after all, has anybody ever dated someone and not spent money on them?
Would you consider your work as an Artist to be your lifestyle, or do you enjoy a balance/separation between being an Artist and your personal life?
DAL: My work definitely bleeds into my lifestyle. I prefer FLR (female led relationships) and have multiple personal slaves. My lifestyle is a bit more casual than my videos and I don’t have someone tied up as human furniture 24/7, though.
Please describe what being in the moment as an Artist feels like to you… Is it a rush? Exciting? Expected? Anything in between?
DAL: Bossy. It feels very bossy.
What’s one song that’s popular that you don’t care for?
DAL: “Happy” by Pharrell. That song drives me up the wall. Why do people like this song???
If you could have starred in any movie, what would it be and why?
DAL: First thing that comes to mind would be Gogo Yubari from Kill Bill. She’s adorable, bloodthirsty, and a little bit psychotic, just like me! I’m pretty much down to play any bloodthirsty Alpha Female, to be honest.
Are there any major celebrities that you have a crush on?
DAL: Currently either Andrew Scott as the priest in Fleabag (I have a serious religious fetish), Salma Hayek in From Dusk Till Dawn (the sexiest female character to ever exist), or Keanu Reeves in literally anything.
If you could only eat one meal everyday for the rest of your life, what would it be?
DAL: Traditional Japanese breakfast with saba, probably.
Do you have any current obsessions?
DAL: I’m currently obsessed with outdoor gardening. I moved into a new house and have been renovating the entire yard. My preference is native plants. I literally spend hours picking at weeds and watching the grass grow.
What is the last book you read?
DAL: The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla. I read a lot and am very much a fantasy nerd.
If you were to win the Power Ball tomorrow, what’s the first thing you’d do with your money?
DAL: Buy a house in the jungle somewhere and retire – probably in Costa Rica. Contemplate starting an elephant sanctuary. Adopt another dog from the shelter.
What is something about you that would surprise your audience?
DAL: I’m a published comic artist.
What was the last job you held before joining iWantEmpire?
DAL: Dominatrix! I’m definitely still a Dominatrix.
How did you get started on iWantClips?
DAL: I had shot clips before but had taken a break. I saw some of the great content people were putting on IWC as well as a promotional article of the top producers that year and the minimum amount they all made… no further persuasion necessary.
What are bad recommendations you hear given to people just starting out in the industry?
DAL: That anyone can do this and that it’s easy. I think that negates the idea that this is work and a job, and like all jobs, you need to be prepared to work for it and develop a certain set of skills and work ethic to be successful. It definitely gets easier as time goes on, but starting up can be quite difficult.
What advice would you give to a new artist starting out in the industry?
DAL: Don’t worry about buying equipment yet. Shoot with what you have – so many people use cell phone cameras in their videos and clients are none the wiser. Put as much content out there as possible, consistently. Keep at it. If you decide this is for you, then go ahead and invest in equipment…if you want to.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with your fans, or anything you’d like us to include in your intro?
DAL: Call me Daddy. I like that.
