Welcome to this week’s Artist Spotlight, where we bring the community together by sharing our Artists’ most inspiring ideas and practices, as well as some of their favorite things. Today’s guest is nurturing and sensual Goddess, Reya Reign. Let’s get to it…
What are some of your favorite aspects of being a clip artist?
RR: I love creating different kinds of content and constantly experimenting with new genres/ideas. I especially love taboo and role play, it’s so much fun to act out fantasies and keeps it exciting! I also love the fact that clips can be sold over and over again in the long run, which makes it an amazing investment of my time and a great way to earn passive income.
How would you describe your style as a clip producer and artist?
RR: Tattooed kinky nerd next door! I’m also a nurturing Goddess that loves being in control.
What is the most memorable or noteworthy moment of being an artist?
RR: I will never forget how wet I got while filming my first taboo step-sister video! I used to think taboo porn was weird. But I eventually went out of my own comfort zone and tried it for myself. Who knew it would be so hot?! I saw the hidden appeal of it. Now I enjoy filming taboo content on a regular basis for an audience that loves my creativity and role play. If you’re a content creator and you’re unsure of a kink/fetish- don’t knock it until you try it!
What are your favorite categories (fetish, JOI, roleplay, humiliation, etc) to perform in and why?
RR: Taboo, role play, and JOI. I love the kinky, forbidden aspect of taboo fantasies! I also love playing different characters in role plays, it keeps things interesting and I love coming up with relevant dirty talk on the spot. Dirty talk is also something I love incorporating into my JOI videos. For me, JOI is about painting a picture in the viewer’s mind, really getting into their head while I guide them and take control of their pleasure. I have recently started creating more Female Domination content, and I’m really enjoying being able to express that side of me. It has been very therapeutic and empowering.
Please describe your ideal fan and what this person could do to impress you.
RR: My ideal fan appreciates the hard work that goes into my business and shows it. That being said, they can impress me with random tributes of appreciation or by using my markup codes when they purchase videos. Even if they don’t have money to spend, a sweet message or review always brightens up my day and keeps me motivated!
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?
RR: I try to enjoy a work/life balance. Key word is TRY. I have gotten better at taking time for myself, but it’s definitely hard when you’re passionate about what you do.
Please describe what being in the moment as an Artist feels like to you… Is it a rush? Exciting? Expected? Anything in between?
RR: Being in the moment is exhilarating. Expressing myself through my work has always been exciting, whether it’s my sexual kinks or my dominant nature.
If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
RR: “Give It Up” by KC & The Sunshine Band.
If you could have starred in any movie, what would it be and why?
RR: Guardians of the Galaxy! I would love to dance around to any song in the soundtrack then proceed to f*ck things up with my alien friends!
Are there any major celebrities that you have a crush on?
RR: James Franco, Chris Hemsworth, and Kate Beckinsale.
What’s the one food you couldn’t live without?
RR: Pho or ramen!
Do you have any current obsessions?
RR: NERD ALERT! Teamfight Tactics in League of Legends. Talk about addicting!
What is the last book you read?
RR: I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi. The title is cheesy, but there’s so much good information about investing and automating your finances!
If you were to win the Power Ball tomorrow, what’s the first thing you’d do with your money?
RR: Travel with my family!
What is something about you that would surprise your audience?
RR: This may not surprise those of you that watch my live streams, but I LOVE anime and video games!
What was the last job you held before joining iWantEmpire?
RR: I’ve been in the adult industry for years before joining iWantClips, but before I joined the adult industry I was a personal trainer and worked at night clubs.
How did you get started on iWantClips?
RR: I had seen tons of models promoting their iWantClips stores and I loved the layout of the site, so it was a no brainer to join when I made the decision to up my clip game earlier this year.
What are bad recommendations you hear given to people just starting out in the industry?
RR: Do not use payment processors that aren’t adult friendly (such as PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, etc)! It’s not worth losing money, unknowingly conducting business with minors, or risking your identity!
What advice would you give to a new artist starting out in the industry?
RR: Be consistent and find your niche! Seriously, consistency is crucial. If you aren’t consistently putting out content, then there won’t be anything for people to actually buy (I know it’s obvious but still). People will spend money on you if you continue to provide them with the amazing content and services only you can offer. Even if you think something’s already been done before or that a certain genre is oversaturated, do it anyway! You have something unique and different to bring to the table- YOU!
