It’s late April and we’re still the the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Quarantine has been a surreal trip, to say the least, and it’s unclear when it will be over. To keep our fans (and selves) entertained, DykedDown reached out to some of favorite friends and colleagues to check in and see how they were holding up. The following is an interview with the one and only Leigh Raven, spouse DykedDown creative director Nikki Hearts, and it was conducted about 45 days into quarantine. Here’s how the LA-based performer is holding up.
DykedDown: Are you the type of person who’s naturally prepared for apocalyptic scenarios?
Leigh Raven: I’m naturally over-prepared when it comes to buying essential stuff like cleaning supplies, paper goods, and water… But that’s just because. I would not consider myself an apocalypse prepper. I’m not a camping supply/ ammunition type of gal, either. Just lots of Clorox wipes, always.
When did you start taking quarantine seriously? Did you stockpile anything unusual or particular — whether weed or lube or baby wipes or even a favorite snack?
I had a cold at the beginning and Nikki was going to stores and coming back with like nothing, because stores were ransacked. Probably around then. We bought a bunch of extra water but thats about all we could find.
How has your daily routine changed most since quarantine became real?
I try to keep my schedule as “regular“ as possible by cleaning, exercising, and making porn. I’ve been definitely creating a lot more content since the quarantine. I naturally don’t really like leaving the house, so I’m pretty much thriving in this reality.
Have you watched any good movies or read any good books since this started?
I’ve rewatched a lot of my favorite shows like, Eastbound and Down, American Horror Story, and Rupaul’s Drag Race. My new favorite is Love After Lockup.
How has the pandemic affected your porn career? Have you started embracing independent platforms like OnlyFans more? Are you camming?
I’ve cammed a few times during quarantine, just to see how it would go… But most of my XXX focus has been on posting daily to my OnlyFans account, which you can check out here. I post fresh content every day on my feed, unlike a lot of accounts who send everything in paid messages. I like to provide value you want to stay subscribed to! I’m a customer service girl 100%.
What’s the nicest thing a fan has said or done for you since the lockdowns started?
Tipped me on OnlyFans! Nikki gets really good gifts off her Amazon Wishlist, which is cool, but I like Ca$h. haha.
Are you masturbating more or less under quarantine? Are you using any particular sex toys or watching any performers that you’d like to shout-out?
I jerk off pretty regularly with my vibrator. Bellisa recently sent me a few sex toys, and I like those! I jerk off to Owen Gray’s porn — sooo good 🤤
What’s the first thing you want to do out in the world once this shitshow (hopefully) ends?
Go out to dinner!
Do you have any self-care practices that you think might benefit DykedDown readers?
I take at least one hot bath a day, and also stretch! Also I find keeping my house clean is mentally really beneficial.
Tiger King: yes or no?
I love how ridiculous the documentary is, but I feel really bad for the tigers!
