“My roommate was doing it at the time,” Ivy Wolfe says about her introduction to on-camera performing. “She said she loved it. It was a beautiful environment for her to be the sexual creature she was without feeling ashamed, and instead be praised and worshiped for it. I was really looking for that environment.”
Before taking the plunge, Wolfe had been a manager at a sandwich shop in Portland. “I love Oregon. Lots of hippies, nobody really cares about money too much.”
Her first scene was a b/g/g “and it’s the best threesome I’ve had to this day—and I have a lot of threesomes. It’s still one of the best,” she adds with a laugh. “She was a dirty girl. She was not ashamed to say what she liked, or to get into it. She was very submissive, I really liked that. It was my first real opportunity to dom a girl. She squirted all over me.”
Wolfe takes her adult industry work seriously: “In most other jobs—and I have worked other jobs—the freedom is limited. I can pursue things that make me feel alive. I can make my own schedule and I’m allowed to be me, completely. I really do work my ass off. I put on whatever music gets me pumped. Makes me think I’m a fuckin’ badass and I’m gonna rock whatever I put my mind to. I like classic rock, metal, something funky.” Her dream scene is a gangbang: “Oh gawd yes. I have wanted that from the moment I started watching porn. I want them to come in one-by-one, and I want to be the dominatrix.”
She uses her real first name “to send a message: I’m not ashamed, not one bit. I don’t want other women to be. A lot of times it’s very hush-hush, ‘Don’t tell the family,’ don’t tell people what you do. I get that, that’s how society works. I’m hell-bent on breaking that.”
Wolfe also sings, and her singing inspiration is Amy Winehouse: “I love her balls. Ballsy woman. She also had this ability to say things that are very raunchy in a way that’s almost classy. I idolize that. She can talk about topics that can’t usually be sung about with such grace.”
Wolfe is aiming high: “Ivy is here to break the goddam fuckin’ mold by being a fiercely intelligent woman in the adult industry who is not afraid to vocalize the things that other people are afraid to. At the end of the day, I love it. I love being a sex worker.”
Her words to live by come from another iconoclast, Oscar Wilde: “You will always be fond of me. To you, I represent all of the sins you never had the courage to commit.”
